Tyler, the Creator is stirring up some controversy with his latest Mountain Dew ad. The commercial has come under fire for its racial stereotypes and depiction of violence against women. PepsiCo immediately responded to the criticism by apologizing for the ad and taking it off the air.

Normally when Thom Yorke makes a video, it involves him dancing freakishly awesome to one of his new tunes. But the latest piece of visual media coming from the ultra-talented Radiohead frontman is quite different. Yorke got together with his Atoms For Peace bandmate, Nigel Godrich, to give teenage girls love advice. This is not a joke or spoof of any kind. Check out the heart-melting clip below.

Over the weekend Steve Buscemi and Vampire Weekend marched in the NYC Easter Parade together. They even wore matching bunny ears and stuff. And it turns out that there was a purpose to this spectacle. It has been announced that the actor will direct a live stream of the band in concert, which will in turn debut a new season of American Express Unstaged.

In the latest Atoms For Peace music video, Thom Yorke shows off his eccentric dance moves, but he’s not alone like in “Lotus Flower”. “Ingenue” also features – as the song’s title suggests – a young woman who moves and dresses just like him. It’s beautiful and creepy. We have that video for you below. Also, David Bowie‘s upcoming album, The Next Day, has been made available for streaming. So you can do that if you want (it’s just his first album in a decade is all). All that and more below.

If there’s one thing we like here at BeatCrave, it’s really, really, really easy targets. So we certainly owe rapper, sometime actor, and all-around pop-cultural punchline Vanilla Ice (a.k.a., Robert Van Winkle), a big thank you as, in addition to still being willing to be Vanilla Ice (which would be soul-crushing for almost anyone), Van Winkle has now launched his own line of mid-range lighting fixtures and sconces, cleverly-titled “Lights Lights Baby.” Get it? Because it’s just like the song!

CBS is worried about The Grammys. The 55th Annual Awards show airs from Los Angeles on February 10 (this Sunday), and the network has issued an email telling performers to keep their clothes on. This means no boobs, butt cracks or other private parts. Check out the super awkward email below.

Honestly, we thought Britney Spears or Demi Lovato would announce their departure from The X-Factor before this next person. L.A. Reid is calling it quits. He’s going back to his real-life job at Sony’s music label, Epic Records. Also, just because Dave Grohl is drumming on the new Queens of the Stone Age record, it doesn’t mean he’s going on tour with them. C’mon now, he’s a very busy guy. Catch up on more news below.
