New Music AND a New TV Gig for Mimi?
$9.2 Million Please!
Swaggy little Justin Bieber just can’t catch break these days! Stacey Wilson Betts is suing the singer for $9.2 million after taking her daughter to a concert (back in 2010) and subsequently suffering from hearing loss and other damages to her ear. Because it got really, really loud…? Unbeliebably strange, fishy-sounding deets inside.
Yes, There Is One Bieber Song.
At the end of June we got to relive and re-lurve some of our fave jams from the past with a list of the 10 hottest summer hits of the past decade. And of course, there was a separate page for Britney Spears songs alone, thanks to some gentle prodding from readers. Wink. But since there’s no time like the present, PITNB is ready to rep for the music of 2012. Here are our picks for the very best summer jams out right now. Most tracks (or videos) were released between May and July of this year, and all tracks are guaranteed to leave you feeling all warm and gooey inside. So you might wanna turn on the AC; our top 40 do not play around.
That-Ish-Cray of the Day
We’ve all had our fair share of WTF moments with Lil Wayne, and comedian Affion Crockett has decided to address some of his own with a new song. In his video for the track WTF (off his forthcoming comedy album Watch The Clone), Crockett– who’s known for his mastery of the Jay-Z flow– spoofs both iconic rappers and will have you ROFLYAO with his dramatic reenactment of Wayne‘s own ridiculous skateboarding video. Checkie out inside! Oh, it’s a pretty accurate spoof so some lyrics are NSFW :)
From Siouxsie to Peaches
A couple of weeks ago Rolling Stone magazine published a list of their selection of the Top 50 Albums from Women Who Rock and, for better or worse, the list generated a lively conversation about female musicians. The website The Skinny asked Garbage frontwoman Shirley Manson to compile her list of Top 10 Albums from her favorite Female Vocalists and I think you can see below, she has excellent taste in music. I’m not sure if the selections are ranked in any particular order but, IMHO, Manson has chosen an superb collection of albums, which you can see below. More »

The TV Guide
Yesterday was a very eventful day for me. I spent the early part of the day taking care of my body and the latter part of the day taking care of my soul. Because I appear to be having an issue with my knee, I went in for an evaluation with a doctor to make sure everything is OK (it is). Last night, I met up with Ollie, Darion and his friend Jessica at the Henry Fonda Theatre to see Marina and the Diamonds in concert. All in all, it was a pretty decent day. More »

The First Single from 'Battle Born'
Early last month The Killers released a short promo video to formally announce the forthcoming release of their new album Battle Born. Today we get our first listen of the band’s first single from the album, a song titled Runaways. Longtime fans of The Killers will, I think, appreciate this new single because it hearkens back to the classic sound of the band that we all know and love. Runaways is a bona fide Killers track, y’all. Take a listen to the song in full below. More »

She. Sounds. Amazing.
A little while back we got to hear some new music from Joss Stone and now we have a new video, along with a release date for her next album The Soul Sessions Volume 2. While You’re Out Looking For Sugar is a soul song from the 60s group, Honey Cone. It should go without saying that ya girl Joss Stone does great justice to the original. Love, peace, and a soul listening session going down inside!
Although I was excited to hear about the show when it first premiered, I never really got into The Cleveland Show. However, this upcoming episode sounds like a must-watch and they may make a fan of me yet. Check out who’ll be joining Nicki and Yeezy on the season premiere of The Cleveland Show: “Menace II Secret Society.”
