Watch: How To Destroy Angels Releases A Music Video For ‘Ice Age’

"Sometimes I'm waiting for this ice age to arrive"
"Sometimes the hate in me is keeping me alive"

At the start of this month we got to see the How To Destroy Angels music video for Keep It Together, the first single from their just released EP An Omen_. Today we get to see the video for Ice Age which is the second single from the EP. As you can see above, Ice Age is a hauntingly simple yet beautiful video. The video was directed by John Hillcoat, the man who directed the amazing film The Road. From the start, this song has garnered the most attention because of how different it sounds from everything that Trent Reznor has done before. Take a look, see what you think.

Watch: Carly Rae Jepsen’s Unreleased Music Video For ‘Curiosity’ Leaks To The Internets

"I'm sick with love"
Carly Rae Gets Sexy

It turns out that Carly Rae Jepsen went and made a pretty sexy music video for her song Curiosity but, for some reason, she (or the Powers that Be) decided not to release the video for public consumption. Thanks to the intrepid folks at Idolator, we do get to check out the video in full. The full, final version of the Curiosity video mysteriously leaked its way to the Internets … which you can watch in full above. If you are at all familiar with CRJ‘s other videos, you’ll see that this one is a bit different … more grown up. Do you like?

Nicki Minaj Blames Target And Walmart For Bad Album Sales Of ‘Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded – The Re-Up’

Ummmm Yeah.

Poor Nicki Minaj! Her latest album re-release for Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded – The Re-Up has not been going so well. That is a bummer… but something tells me she’ll be just fine. Anyhoo, the rapper recently spoke out about the stores that are (or are not) selling the album and pretty much blamed chains like Target and Walmart for the wack album sales. Because… yeah. Click inside to get the deets!

Everyday I’m Hustlin’

The TV Guide

Yesterday afternoon I made my way back home to LA from Detroit and managed to make the trek without incident. I did get bumped from my first class upgrade because Selma Blair was on my flight and she purchased a second first class seat for her baby Arthur. Yes, I got cock blocked by a baby. As if he knew I was grousing about getting bumped, Selma let Arthur walk up and down the aisle and he stopped at my seat to say Hi to me. Selma seemed very proud that her son was getting to know everyone so, I guess I couldn’t be too mad ;) The flight was on time and I landed in a beautifully sunny and warm LA. More »

Soon-To-Be Retired Rapper Lil Wayne Says He’s Ready To Get Married

Again
Rapper Lil Wayne looking very hip and tattooed out as he and his girlfriend watch the Los Angeles Lakers Vs the Miami Heat at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, CA

The other day rapper Lil Wayne announced his plans for retirement and a lot of us took this as good news. As a big fan of Weezy (especially Weezy circa 2006-2008) I think my one-time favorite rapper could use a break. And rapper ‘retirement’ announcements are usually ‘extended vacation’ announcements, so I’m gonna assume that he’ll come back to the game once he’s had his fill of skateboarding… or sports commentating… lol. But Lil Wayne apparently has other plans for his life, including some possible nuptials with his girlfriend Dhea. Click inside to learn more!

Watch: Prince Releases A Music Video For ‘Rock And Roll Love Affair’

"This kind of love don’t come from a prayer"
"She Believes in Fairy Tales and Princes"

At the start of the month we got our first look at the cover artwork for Prince‘s new single Rock and Roll Love Affair. Today, we get to see the just-released music video for the track. At this point, we don’t know for sure if Prince is planning a full album release or if this single is the only new music we’re going to get from him for a while but … it’s here, the video is here and it’s pretty dope. As you can see above, Prince and his band (including newcomer Andy Allo) are filmed jamming out to the song … clean and simple. I love this track … but I would love to hear more new music from Prince, hopefully soon. As for the video, enjoy!

First Listen: Alicia Keys Collaborates With Maxwell On ‘Fire We Make’

Um. It's Baby-Makin' Time, Y'all.
'Like The Night To The Day, I Can't Stay Away'

You know what’s awesome about this song? It sounds exactly the way you want an Alicia Keys/Maxwell link-up to sound. When we first saw Alicia‘s track list for her upcoming Girl On Fire album, we also got confirmation about Maxwell‘s appearance on Fire We Make (along with a Frank Ocean collab that I’ve been freaking out about). The song that I imagined they created is exactly the song you’re about to listen to; it’s awesome. It’s real, live, R&B, which means it may or may not be baby-makin time y’all. LMAO! Turn the lights down low, bust out the scented candles and take a listen to Fire We Make. It’s so sultry and so sexy, and then there’s this awesome guitar riff thing towards the end– me likey! And, apparently, I’ve been really missing Maxwell without even realizing it. Nice…

Justin Timberlake & MySpace Are Going After Spotify

Yeah, Good Luck with That

Now that Justin Timberlake is a part owner of the once mighty (now flailing) MySpace, the plan of action is to try and revive the former social media giant and relaunch it as a rival to music streaming sites like Spotify and Pandora. This plan of attack somehow leaked its way online when documents outlining MySpace‘s future plans starting showing up on business blogs. According to these leaked documents, MySpace is looking for $50 million dollars in new investor money to launch their music streaming service sometime next year. Could it be? Could MySpace really rise from the ashes of their social media failures and find new, successful life in the music streaming biz? More »

First Listen: Solange Releases A New Track Titled, ‘Lovers In The Parking Lot’

'Played Around With Your Heart, Now I'm Playin' Around In The Dark'
Solange Is Back At It

Ever since Solange released the video for Losing You, the first single off her upcoming album True, I have been waaaiting for this moment! New music from Solange! Yes, thank you! Losing You was my jam for a minute and Lovers In The Parking Lot is, really, just as a good a track. It has a very different sound from the upbeat, dance vibe that Losing You gives off, but it’s still got that general funky, awesomeness we’ve come to associate with Solange. Peep the audio above, and tell me if you love, love, love it! Losing You is still the song, but I really like this one too (and I like that it made me go look for that old Nivea song). And, damn, Solange can really sing!

True drops on November 27!
