'I Wanna See Your Pom Poms From The Stand'
Now, THIS is the Frank Ocean news I like to hear! Ain’t nobody got time for all that other ish! The other day we learned that Super Rich Kids would be Frank Ocean‘s next single, and this was awesome news because I luuurve that song. I was totally expecting that the next video we’d see from him would be for that song, but new stills have emerged from the set of his video for Forrest Gump! I got sooo pumped because PITNBR nicole had mentioned that she was hoping this track would be released as his next single, and Voila! Ask and you shall receive, lol! Peep the gallery for more (I see some desert images, which kinda reminds me of the Pyramids video– all good things), and click inside to listen to Forrest Gump. It’s the final song the album and it really is one of the best tracks from Channel Orange.
LOL, C. Love DEFFO has more than 99 Problems
Courtney Love, that wacky rocker lady who seems to have very precise opinions on the lives of other people, took herself to the Sundance Film Festival to perform live in concert and during her set, she decided to bust out her rendition of Jay-Z‘s song 99 Problems. Yes, folks, she did. I’m quite surprised that her cover isn’t as tragic as I thought it might be but … well, why don’t you listen below and judge for yourselves. This version of the song is deffo Courtney Love to the max, no doubt. Click below and take a listen. More »
The Return Of The Roaring 20s
As y’all know, I am [im]patiently awaiting the release of Baz Luhrman‘s The Great Gatsby. We’ve watched the trailers, checked out the amazing character posters, and learned about the geniuses (like Jay-Z) behind the movie’s score. Now we get to check out a few really sweet costume sketches from Miuccia Prada herself. The designer released these to British Vogue, and it’s all just one more reason to get excited about the adaptation. Click inside for more!

"Everybody Needs A Best Friend"
Norah Jones is one of those artists that I should really be listening to more often. Every time I see her name somewhere, I’m all like, why aren’t you listening to more Norah Jones?! Well, that’s all gonna change, I promise! We recently learned that Mark Wahlberg and his co-star character Ted will be making an appearance at the Oscars, and now the Ted theme song will be showcased as well. Nine-time Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter Norah Jones will be performing her Oscar-nominated song from the Ted soundtrack at this year’s Academy Awards and I’m really excited to hear it live. Click inside to learn more and to check out a sweet lil’ video for the song!
Kendrick Makes His SNL Debut!
Earlier today we got to check out some of my fave skits from last night’s episode of Saturday Night Live, and it was definitely a good time. But the main reason I was excited about the episode was because Kendrick Lamar was performing! He rocked out to one of my fave tracks (from his debut album good kid, m.A.A.d. city) Poetic Justice, and he also performed Swimming Pools (Drank), which just went certified platinum. Between the controversy he stirred up with his last video, that Dido feature, and this SNL appearance– and the fact that his album is, actually, amazing– methinks the Compton rapper has arrived. Maybe he and Lady Gaga can make a [nother] song together now, lmao! Check out his low-key performance for Poetic Justice above, and click inside to see him turn things up a bit for Swimming Pools. And you can check out the lyrics to both songs at DirectLyrics.
If So, Props To Her!
Just the other day Beyoncé shared a couple of photos from her Super Bowl half-time performance rehearsal, and things were looking pretty serious! Sources close to the singer revealed that she was especially excited to hit the stage, following the lip-synching controversy that ignited after her performance at President Obama‘s Inauguration. Still, nobody from Bey‘s camp has released any official statements about the issue. Bey, however, has posted a new photo of herself on Instagram… and it kinda makes you think she might be addressing the issue in her own special way. Click inside for more!
Grown Folk Swag
OMG! Why am I so pumped for this?!?! LOL, okay so Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake were spotted on the set of JT‘s forthcoming music video for Suit & Tie, and I am sooo happy right now. We just watched the lyric video, like, five seconds ago and I’m just ready to see what these guys were up to. JT and Jay-Z look like they had so much effing fun on set, and every time I see Jigga Man smile, I just melt/reaaallllyyyy start hating on Beyoncé. Did y’all know that I love Jigga? I friggen looove Jigga. And seeing him on his Suit & Tie ish just made my day, lol. I cannot wait for this video to drop, and considering the way Justin‘s been handling his comeback, something tells me I won’t have to wait long! Squeeee! Peep the gallery for more!
