The Grammys
Well, the 2011 Grammy nominations were announced last night during a special on CBS, and gosh dang heck, wouldn’t ya know it, they kind of, well, sucked. ‘Sucked’ in that way in which you can tell the Grammy organization continued to trend downward by nominating musicians not for their artistic worth, but for buzz, albums sold, and pop culture currency (of course, I could...

PBS’s Sesame Street has always striven to not only promote learning and curiosity amongst its millions of young viewers over the years, but tolerance and understand as well—as long as that doesn’t apply to the female body, of course, which Katy Perry found out this week.  The singer taped a performance of an augmented “Hot N Cold” with Elmo that was...

Katy Perry Threatened for 'California Girls' By Record Company

California Gurls
California Girl Katy Perry should've seen this coming, I mean, California girls isn't just any phrase, it's a logo, a stamp, a freaking brand name given to us by the Beach Boys, or more specifically members Brian Wilson and Mike Love who wrote "California Girls" way back when. Wilson and Love are digging the song, but Roncor Music, the company that owns the copyright on their behalf,...

Katy Perry Explains Lady Gaga and Blasphemy Tweet
Last week we showed you Lady Gaga's latest video for her track, "Alejandro." Although dripping in Ace of Bass like synth-heavy bass lines and repetitive pop choruses, the clip for the latest single was rather very dark with some very graphic scenes of Gaga and dancing men diced in with images of religious accessories and attire. Katy Perry, mostly known for...

Russell Brand Says Heroin Would Save The Music Industry
Russell Brand has been saying some naughty words again. You know who he is. He's the English comedian, radio personality, and actor who came from the UK to invade our Jason Segel movies (Forgetting Sarah Marshall) and our MTV Music Video awards (twice.) He's got a knack for pushing people's buttons to grab some hilarity and run with it into the spotlight. Now, he's...

Lady Gaga Promotes Designer Condoms
Hey, gang, guess what?  Entertainment Weekly reports that since Toyota decided that faulty accelerators and brakes weren't thinning out the ever-growing human population quickly enough, they've decided to up the ante by joining forces with the Today Show to create "Toyota Concert Series on TODAY" (clever title, no?).  How does it work? ...

Weezer To Write and Record With Katy Perry
Sigh, Weezer. What’s going on? With all the shenanigans they’ve been throwing at us like naming their album Raditude, using a flying dog as the cover art, and offering up a free Wuggie, this one goes down in the books. In an interview with Buzznet (via P4k), Rivers Cuomo has let the word slip in regards to a partnership with...

Singer-songwriter, Jill Sobule, had some pretty harsh things to say about pop star, Katy Perry, in her interview with The Rumpus. Sobule is mostly known for the song, "Supermodel," (which was used in the movie Clueless) these days, but did you know she also had a hit titled, "I Kissed A Girl?" Well, you do now. That was Sobule's  only other hit besides "Supermodel" and she is...

Katy Perry's New Video Looks Like a Vegas Ad

Is this a music video or an ad for Vegas? I'm not quite sure. Katy Perry has just released her new video for her fourth single, "Waking Up In Vegas" onto MySpace and Youtube and I although it's always fun watching her play dress up, the song paired with the video just looks like an expensive Vegas promo. The music video debuted on iTunes on April 28th as an online one-week...

The BRIT Awards, the UK's version of our Grammys (only more xenophobic with separate categories for the British and for foreigners) were held yesterday in London. Also unlike the Grammys, the BRIT Awards do not give out lifetime achievement awards in the form of making one person the winner of every single big category for that one year (i.e. Robert Plant, Herbie Hancock, Ray Charles, Steely Dan,...
