Lil Wayne Goes Major League, Sang “Take Me Out To The Ball Game” Last Night At The Giants Game

by (@zaragolden)

Lil Wayne is not your average sports fan. A big league rapper to be sure, Wayne harbors a not-so-secret ambition of one day making the Major League. Until he makes the team, he seems happy to be included anyway he can be — sitting court side, writing songs of support and celebrating victories like he scored the game winning point. And last night he came as close as ever, actually taking the field during the San Fransisco Giants/St. Louis Cardinals game to serenade the stadium with a heartfelt seventh-inning stretch performance of “Take Me Out To The Ball Game.” Read more…

Tuned In: Bruno Mars Hosted, Performed and Debuted A New Song On Saturday Night Live

by (@zaragolden)


Bruno Mars put in extra-overtime on Saturday Night Live over the weekend, hosting and performing. Mars isn’t the first to pull this double dutyTaylor Swift, Mick Jagger and Justin Timberlake, in most recent memory — but he may have been the first to host, perform and to still have the energy to debut a brand new song all in the same episode. How’s that for efficiency?

The new Unorthodox Jukebox cut Mars performed is called “Young Wild Girls,” an emotional ballad about the bad girls that Mars just can’t quit. “Oh you young wild girls, you make a mess of me,” goes the hook. And then when the camera gets close, you can see the strain of the veins in his neck and the sweat beginning to bead on his forehead because this love for these young wild girls is nothing short of dire: “Yeah you young wild girls, you’ll be the death of me.”

Is Taylor Swift’s New Song “All Too Well” About Jake Gyllenhaal? Here’s Solid Evidence That Says Yes.

by (@katespencer)

Taylor Swift‘s new album Red comes out on Monday, and yes – we will be buying it. But it also leaked online this week and the songs are now all over the web, and yes – we’ve been listening (and loving it). Our favorite song is “All Too Well,” which reflects on a relationship that is no longer. Taylor recently told VH1 that fans are often way off about who her songs are about, saying, “There are a lot of songs that people think is about this dude, but it’s really not. It’s actually about this guy you have no idea I even dated. Or you’ll sit there and go ‘that song was inspired by three different situations with three different people.” But still, we’re pretty confident “All Too Well” is 100% about Jake Gyllenhaal, and we’ve got evidence that matches the lyrics as hardcore proof. Get out your magnifying glasses, Swifties!

EXHIBIT A

LYRIC: “I walked through the door with you. The air was cold, but something ’bout it felt like home somehow and I left my scarf there at your sister’s house and you still got it in your drawer even now.”

EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW: Brandy Has At Least Five Different Personalities, But Don’t Call Her Crazy

by

Clouds hover over New York City. The rain can’t decide if it wants to fall or stay put. Brandy‘s wearing a bright multi-colored striped sweater paired with a tan quilted skirt as if you’d walk outside to find the sun shining. She’s glowing. A woman from her team primps her long black tresses before her smiling face is visible to anyone in the room. To introduce myself I extend my tiny hand. She reaches out her arms instead. She wants a hug. That’s Brandy. The once girl, now woman, who has grown up before our eyes has the genuine spirit of a woman who’d prefer an informal hug opposed to the formal handshake. Read more…

A$AP Rocky, Drake, Kendrick Lamar and 2 Chainz (Don’t Really) Have A “F***in’ Problem”

by (@zaragolden)

Will A$AP Rocky‘s endlessly delayed major label debut LONGLIVEA$AP come out while these four rappers are still the hottest in the game? That’s the least of Rocky’s worries, if there’s any truth to his new song “F***in’ Problems,” featuring a particularly trendy trio: Drake, Kendrick Lamar and 2 Chainz. Over a heavy-banging and almost sinister Noah ’40′ Shebib beat, the boys take turns filing their complaints. Rocky is bummed that he’s “never met a motherf***er fresh like me.” Drake’s not buying your excuses, instead he suggests: “Ain’t hear my album? Who you sleepin’ on? You should print the lyrics out and have a f***ing read-along.” Lamar asks that you “your friends need to be up to a par/ See my standards are pampered by threesomes tomorrow.” And as for 2 Chainz, he’s just here for the hook, where he and Drake double-up and lament their taste in “bad bitches.”

EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW: Say What? Questlove Still Has His Own Personal Facebook Page

by

Questlove loves his social media. If you follow him on Twitter (@questlove) you know he tweets about everything from politics to personal photos of weddings in the woods. Quest appeared to be naturally chatty after The Roots‘ ACL performance when he revealed Jay-Z’s theory on success. He also told us that he live tweets during his shows. Yes, while playing the drums. “I’m a social network prince.” Read more…

Kanye West + Wes Anderson = This Hilarious KanyeWes Tumblr

by (@zaragolden)


Looking for a clever meme to take you into the weekend? Check out KanyWesAnderson, a brilliant Tumblr full of Kanye West/Wes Anderson mashups. Maybe it was their mutual appreciation for scarves (see: Kanye West, Wes Anderson), or their shared tendency of hewing to the absurd; or perhaps this is all just a preview for a day sure to come, when West admits Anderson into his clique so that he might direct the music video for “Clique.” Won’t that be great? Whatever the inspiration, we think these spot-on mashups are perfect.

There are some made of West lyrics juxtaposed over Anderson film stills: Read more…

Aerosmith Are Still Getting It In The New “What Could Have Been” Video

by (@zaragolden)

Steven Tyler might have one or two grey hairs in this new video, but boy can the Aerosmith guys still get it. This new video for “What Could Have Been,” off their upcoming album Music From Another Dimension!, finds the band in some sort of smoky bar, Tyler slouched over on a stool with a pretty blonde while the rest of the band cue up a game of pool behind him. There is also a subplot involving a handsome young fella and the pretty young girl he loves that ends dramatically with a  kiss and a fistfight, but that part feels like an unnecessary “sexy” bone being thrown our way. Sure, “Dream On” came out almost 40-years ago now, but here Aerosmith are legends and still very much in the game. Why can’t we just celebrate Aerosmith, back with new music for the first time since 2001 and sounding as good as they ever did?
