#BBHMM In FULL!
Late yesterday, Rihanna teased the release of a new single titled Bitch Better Have My Money when she released the cover art for the single on her official website. Late last night, she teased the single by releasing two short clips of music on a stupid app. Right now, we finally get to hear the song IN FULL since it just made its debut online. BBHMM isn’t quite the club banger that I was hoping for but it’s a decent enough song that it got met to bop along in my chair at first listen. Click below to hear the first song from Rihanna‘s upcoming 8th album and hear Bitch Better Have My Money in full. More »
I LOVE THIS!!
British comedian James Corden took over as host of The Late Late Show this week and has been doing everything he can to get people to watch the show. Last night, he did a bit with Mariah Carey that totally caught my attention. The set-up is that James, being new to LA, needs someone to drive around with him so he can acclimate to traffic here and he got Mariah Carey to be his carpool buddy. The two sing together, trade accents together, crack wise together … it’s great! Check out the Carpool Karaoke bit with Mimi above and think about tuning in to watch James Corden as the new host of The Late Late Show, maybe?
And the young 'Idol' contestants had no idea what was going on
Remember back in December when I shared that hilariously brilliant Geico commercial that features Salt-N-Pepa and their classic song Push It? Well, last night, SNP brought Push It to the Millennial masses on American Idol to perform the song and it was only EVERYTHING. I believe it was ’80s night on Idol last night (which is why Boy George was randomly in the building) and Salt-N-Pepa were asked to school the children on what’s what by performing their classic hit song … the only problem is that most/all of the very young Idol contestants likely had no idea who Salt-N-Pepa are (and it’s possible that they only know Push It from the Geico commercial on TV right now). For the rest of us, tho, SNP‘s performance is pretty damn sweet. Click the embed above to watch and lurve.
Just a tease
Late yesterday, Rihanna announced that she would be releasing the first single from her new album sometime today. Titled Bitch Better Have My Money, this song would be the first taste of what we can expect from Rihanna‘s much-anticipated 8th album. Overnight, Rihanna released two short clips of BBHMM on an app called Dubsmash that meant fans had to download the app to hear the clips. Well, I don’t go for that kind of bullshizz so click the embed above to hear the BBHMM clips on You Tube like a normal human being. The clips are short but they do give a sense of what the full song will likely sound like. BBHMM will be released in full at some point today … stay tuned.
The song will reportedly be released tomorrow
Rihanna just posted a photo on her official website of the cover art for her new single Bitch Better Have My Money along with a presumed release date and fans of the Barbadian pop star are currently losing their shizz. As you can see below, Ri Ri is rockin’ some seriously thick eyebrows on the cover art for her new single and strangely enough, I kinda love it. But while not everyone may be feeling Rihanna‘s brows in this photo, I’m QUITE CERTAIN that everyone can agree that it is very exciting news that Rihanna is ready to unleash a new song from her upcoming new album in mere hours!

"I feel like it is now the right time for me to leave the band."
Oh damn. Last week we learned that Zayn Malik decided to leave the current One Direction tour due to “stress” (which was likely caused by rumors that he had been cheating on his fiancée while he was on tour with 1D). Today, Zayn has released an official statement announcing his decision to quit One Direction altogether. Malik‘s short statement doesn’t really give a reason for his quitting the group, he only says that “now is the right time” for him to leave the band. And much like the Spice Girls did when Geri Halliwell quit that group in the late ’90s, One Direction has decided to carry on and move forward as a 4-member group. Dang. Click below to read Zayn‘s full statement and weep for the beginning of the end of One Direction. More »

The TV Guide
On Friday night, I traveled back to 1987 to see Dokken in concert. Last night, I traveled back to 1997 to see Orgy. I used to love Orgy back in the day when I was still really into industrial music but kinda dabbling a bit into more electronic, EDM music in the late ’90s. Orgy was the perfect mix of industrial dance music and their hit cover of Blue Monday (by New Order) really made me a fan. I saw that they were playing a small show at the Whisky A Go Go on Sunset so I decided to check ‘em out. I’m happy to report that the show was much better than I thought it would be. The place was packed, the band was pretty on point and I got to enjoy a night of music that I had forgotten I used to really love once upon a time. More »
