10 Party Songs That Need To Go Away

Party-Songs-Need-To-Go-Away-feature

Nowadays, if you’ve been to one party then you’ve pretty much been to them all. This is because of bottle service culture, and the predictable music soundtrack that accompanies it. For some odd reason, folks continue to party and dance to songs that ran their course many moons ago.

The 9 Strangest Halftime Show Collaborations In Super Bowl History

madonna_lmfao_art

We know you’re excited to see Katy Perry perform at this year’s Super Bowl halftime show on February 1st, but weren’t you just a tad perplexed when it was announced funk rock muscle god Lenny Kravitz would be joining her? It will definitely be an interesting collaboration because Perry and Kravitz are drastically different artists; however, this isn’t the first time the Super Bowl halftime show has merged two unlikely musicians together. (Madonna and LMFAO, anyone?)

LMFAO Split, Which Only Means One Thing: Shots, Shots, Shots, For Everybody

LMFAO Call It Quits

Oh, no. Hollywood Life is reporting the uncle and nephew duo that make up LMFAO are calling it quits. Redfoo and his nephew Sky Blu have been making party music since the group formed in 2006. Redfoo said the two are taking a break from one another to pursue their separate interests personally and professionally. “I feel like we’ve been doing this for so long, five or six years. And we’re kind of like saying, well, let’s just do what’s natural and just kind of explore that, instead of like forcing it all the time,” he said. Read more…

The Top 10 Weirdos In Music (And Why We Love Them For It)

In a recent Rolling Stone article, A$AP Rocky explained that “nowadays, everybody wanna be weird. We know how to manifest being weird. We know we some weird-ass looking motherf**kers, and we know we do some weird sh*t.” He continued, “But at the same time, we some geniuses.”

While we’re not entirely sure that we agree with the “genius” tag, it does seem that suddenly every artist is out to “out-weird” each other. Whether it’s what Ke$ha‘s studding, what shoes Lil Wayne‘s rocking, or what Lil B‘s prophesizing, artists are competing to be the most unique and we just can’t get enough of it. Normal is just so boring, isn’t it? The art of music is all about expressing individuality in its purest form, and artists who don’t just let their tunes do the talking are the most appealing to us. We love these artists for embracing their individuality, their unique weirdness, that sets them apart. Brace yourself for our list of the Top 10 Weirdos in Music Today (And Why We Love Them For It).

Song Of The Summer Flashback: Katy Perry’s “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)” (2011)

Katy Perry Last Friday Night TGIF Song Of The Summer

Just yesterday, we released this year’s very first Song Of The Summer chart, which showed Carly Rae Jepsen‘s “Call Me Maybe”, Katy Perry‘s “Wide Awake” and Maroon 5‘s “Payphone” dueling for summer supremacy. (Want a say in the matter? Vote for the Song Of The Summer, as presented by VH1 and Dove Clinical Fresh Deodorant, today!)

It’s not surprising to see Katy Perry’s name near the top of the Song Of The Summer list, as this is the third consecutive summer that she’s been a fixture on radio. Way back in 2010, “California Gurls” dominated the airwaves, and last year, the fifth single off her multi-platinum Teenage Dream LP, “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)”, won VH1’s first ever Song Of The Summer countdown.

Lebron James Celebrates Championship Win By Rapping With LMFAO

Things you don’t expect to see: Lebron James partying and rapping with LMFAO. Well, that’s exactly what happened last night after the Miami Heat won the NBA Championship game against OKC. Sidebar: now that Lebron has a ring we wonder what will happen to all those “Lebron doesn’t even have a ring, so he’s not that great” memes. To celebrate their new championship title the Heat headed to club LIV for spirits and libations. On one end of the stage was electropop group LMFAO. On the other end was James, Dwyane Wade and other teammates. When the DJ puts on 2 Chainz “Riot” LMFAO starts rapping and so does James. Read more…

Carly Rae Jepsen Runs the MuchMusic Video Awards 2012

There are no maybes about it, Carly Rae Jepsen owned last night’s MuchMusic Video Awards. Performing early in Canadian music channel’s annual awards show, Jepsen sang her Billboard-topping “Call Me Maybe” from a giant, colorful telephone-shaped swing while wearing a too-cute TopShop dress. After picking up a hefty load of awards —the Video of the Year, the MuchMusic.com Most Watched Video, and the crowd-sourced UR Fave Video of the Year all for her “Call Me Maybe” video— she joined non-Canadian Flo Rida for “Wild Ones,” filling in for the absent You Oughta Know‘s Sia and proving herself more than “Maybe” capable.

Her “Wild Ones” cameo, though, was for many of us the first time hearing her do anything other than “Call Me Maybe.” If she hopes to be celebrated again in years to come, she will soon need to start harnessing some of the excitement around her into something new. Her EP Curiosity has yet to see release in the States, but has been well received in Canada — why not start not start with that, and in front of a hometown crowd?
