You know what was better that your angsty teenage years? Everything. But just because that period of extreme insecurity, emotional volatility and irrational arguments with parents are behind us (mostly), doesn’t me we can’t look back and chuckle at the days gone past. Michelle Branch and Alanis Morissette undoubtedly got me through the days of catty girl-fights, brutal break-ups and inexplicable hostility… towards life. Vote now and decide whether Alanis’s “You Oughta Know” or Michelle’s “Are You Happy Now?” satisfies your rage spells with more fiery finesse. All hail the queens of sass.
Lady Gaga‘s eagerly-awaited and endlessly-discussed album ARTPOP finally dropped this Monday, and it appears as if the extended marketing campaign for the LP is working, as projections have her selling approximately 260,000 copies of her latest collection of songs. It’s no shock this fashion-clad, envelope-pushing music mastermind is making such a splash – she’s always surprising the masses. So let’s give a shout out to some of her past hits, and see which song reigns supreme. Do you think Lady Gaga’s video for “Born This Way” or “Alejandro” makes fans go the Gaga-est? Vote now and decide!
Guess which sweetastic album dropped this past Tuesday? Eminem‘s album Marshall Mathers LP 2, of course! And let me tell you, that man knows how to whip up some good music. The album boasts collaborations with songstresses P!nk and Rihanna… just to name a few. And if that hasn’t gotten you excited, his music video for “Berzerk” is totally, well… Berzerk. But even though we’re embracing the new Eminem musical renditions, we’ve got to give a shout out to his old hits! So vote now and tell us whether you think Eminem is at his best with “Berzerk” or “Cleanin’ Out My Closet.”
Halloween was yesterday – which means you’re probably still picking caramel out of your teeth… and maybe nursing a hangover. But just ’cause it’s Friday, doesn’t mean all that sugary goodness is finished… in fact, I’ve got an inkling you’ve got a healthy (or not so healthy) leftover supply. I know some rockin’ guys who’ve got a taste for the sweet stuff themselves. You might recognize them? It’s Bruce Springsteen who croons ”Candy’s Room” and Iggy Pop who serenades us with ”Candy“. So vote now (before you crash from that sugar high) and tell us which guy does “candy” better!
People. It’s time to reassess our approach to life – after all – the New Year is almost here (I know, sounds totes cray, ryyght?) WHICH brings me to my next point. When one door opens, another door must close… or a mouth. What I mean is, we need to get our vocabularies in check. You might not realize this, but the slang terms you’ve been using are dating you. Badly. (I’m lookin’ at you ’80s babies.) When we use words that have reached their expiration date, we not only risk vernacular food poisoning, but we put our “cool factor” at risk. And obvi, no one wants that. So please, have a seat, make yourself some Earl Grey and mosey through my comprehensive guide to 15 Slang Terms You Need To Retire.

Do you prefer Rockwell‘s “Somebody’s Watching Me” or Fever Ray‘s “If I Had A Heart“? Vote now, and tell us which song you find creepier. And remember… check under your bed before you go to sleep. Mwahahaha.
It’s 2013 and we’ve gotten some upgrades in the past few years. We’ve gone from Walkman to iPod, VCR to DVD player and flip phone to smart phone. Big changes, people. But with every new invention, we leave behind a legacy of abandoned gadgets and gizmos – Game Boys, cassette tapes, typewriters… Tamagotchis. And let’s not forget the lingo. The years of “That’s fly” / “She’s so bootylicious” / “Dang, that homeboy is a scrub” are behind us. It’s a sad, sad thing. So let’s dust off our dictionaries, get sentimental and look at some of the greatest slang words that might be dead in 2013 conversation, but live on in top chart songs. So check out the gallery of Top 10 Slang Terms Music Has Celebrated. It’s a bangin’ list beeotch. If you disagree, boy you bugg’n.
CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story is right around the corner, folks! Monday, October 21 at 9PM ET/PT we’ll finally get to see the movie we’ve all been waiting for – and I know you’re as psyched as I am. The movie will give us a unique peak behind the curtain, charting the group’s rise to fame, loss of fortune and their personal hardships. But I want to take a look at the lighter side of TLC… their redonkulous music videos. From odd costume choices to quirky prop additions, their videos are a compilation of bizarre brilliance.
