But are the lyrics homophobic?
His purple funkness Prince has released a new single titled Da Bourgeoisie and as you can hear in the video embedded above, homeboy is smartin’ something fierce over getting dumped by his lady … for another lady. As you might expect, the song is a funky jam that tells a love story as only Prince can but a closer look at the lyrics suggests that the way he is delivering the story may be homophobic. No one likes to get dumped by a lover but it seems especially insulting to some people if they get dumped by a lover for someone else of the same sex (ie. a guy gets dumped by a girl for a girl, a girl gets dumped by a guy for a guy). Clearly, according to the lyrics of this song, Prince is one of those people. But is he really being anti-gay with this song? Check out the lyrics of Da Bourgeoisie below and let’s discuss. More »

PLUS, 'Perfume (The Dreaming Mix)' leaks to the Internets
Earlier this month, our dear Britney Spears released the ballad Perfume as the second single from her upcoming new album Britney Jean and today we get to see the just-released lyric video for the track. According to Britney herself, she is currently filming the music video for Perfume and to tide us over the lyric video for the song has been released. Late last night, the stripped down alternate version of Perfume (The Dreaming Mix) leaked its way to the Internets. Having heard the more stripped down Dreaming Mix of Perfume I have to admit, I really like the less produced, more raw version of the song. Check out the lyric video above and hang on tight, Britney will be comin’ at us with the official music video for the song soon (I hope)! Click below to hear Perfume (The Dreaming Mix) More »

"Tonight I'm Gonna Hold You Close"
Earlier this month we got to hear Kelly Clarkson‘s new Xmas single Underneath the Tree, the first from her forthcoming holiday album Wrapped In Red and today we get to check out the ENTIRELY adorable lyric music video for the song. I believe a proper music video is still on the way but in the meantime, we get to check out this supercute animated lyric video for Underneath the Tree. The more I hear this song, the more I like it. I have a feeling that Kelly‘s Wrapped In Red album is going to be a must-own holiday album for every pop music fan. Check out the video above and see how cute it turned out. Are you feeling this Xmas song from Kelly? Is this an album that you think you may want to own?
"Why be a king when you can be a God?"
Eminem has been regularly releasing new info about and new music from his upcoming new album The Marshall Mathers LP 2 and today we get our first listen of a new song from the album titled Rap God. As the title suggests, Eminem‘s lyrics explain in great detail why he believes he is a god of rap and by listening to his delivery of the lyrics, it’s hard to argue against his point. Click the embed above to hear Rap God in full then click below to read the lyrics to the song. When he starts spitting his rhymes in that sick rapid-fire staccato way near the end of the song, it becomes clear how Eminem can make such a boastful claim. This song is really good. Have a listen and see. More »

Earlier this week we got our first look at the cover art for Lady Gaga‘s new album ARTPOP and today we learn which songs will be featured on the album. Gaga unveiled the tracklisting for ARTPOP on Twitter last night with a little help from some of her loyal fans. Gaga commissioned a group of fans who have been camping out in front of her recording studio “for a month” to paint the song titles on a wall, which was then photographed and released on Twitter. Additionally, Gaga is releasing today a lyric video for her new song Aura which features scenes and imagery from the sequel film Machete Kills (the film she stars in which opens in theaters this Friday). Click below to see the tracklist for ARTPOP then watch the lyric video for Aura, one of the songs featured on the album. More »

We've All Been There...
LMAO… I am cracking up over these lyrics right now. Please, God, don’t let anybody see me– LOL! The story of my life circa 2007! I love it. P!nk just released a tour video for her song Walk Of Shame (off the album The Truth About Love), and it’s my first time hearing this little gem. Clearly, I needed to cop that album like, months ago. Anywho, the song is only a single in Australia right now, but it’s pretty hilarious. Peep the video for more!
"Watch out now / 'Cause here it comes"
Our PRAYERS to Godney have been answered because last night Britney Spears‘s new single Work Bitch leaked to the Internets for our unauthorized listening pleasure. I have to send out LOTS OF LURVE to PITNB readers Jimmy, William and Heather for giving me the heads up on this blessed event. Honestly, I can’t even share the song with y’all because as soon as it appears in some form online, it gets yanked offline … but the song will be officially released tomorrow (tho, it’s possible Brit‘s people might go a head and release the single today due to the leak). That being said, since the song has leaked … then the lyrics have been made available to all. Click below to read the lyrics to Britney‘s Work Bitch and get a sense of what this SMASHING club banger sounds like. More »
