#ThrowbackThursday: Here’s Why I’m Listening To Crime Mob All Weekend

#KnuckIfYouBuck is now 10 Years Old!!!
The only way to celebrate a child-free weekend

So, here’s what’s going on with me. My youngest son just turned, one and ever since he was about 3 months old, I’ve been talking to his Dad about this upcoming weekend. I’m going to let you all in on what my life has been like for the past 12 months: insane. Dark. Exhausting. Terrifying. All things I’ve been carefully concealing when I post these kinds of Instagram photos, LMAO. I’M TIRED! And I could tell when Josev arrived that I was going to have to do something I’ve never done before, and take a weekend off of motherhood. Yes, I’m done. For one weekend. And that weekend is this weekend, during which I’m going to be playing this video (and the dirty version with ya boy Lil’ Scrappy) all. Effing. Weekend. And drinking wine by the bottle. And TAKING LIKE 3 NAPS BACK TO BACK (then waking up to Knuck if You Buck) BECAUSE OMG my partna-in-babymaking is taking the kids away for the weekend! Nobody call meeee! And listen to Crime Mob (I love Crime Mob… and—fun fact—the only college dorm party I ever threw/the only party I’ve ever thrown in my life was called Knuck if You Buck—shouts-out to my roommate Ángela—because that is how much this song defined my college years. Sort of.)

First Listen/Look: Taylor Swift Previews Her New Song ‘Style’ In A New Target Commercial

Lots of talking then, music
"We never go out of Style"

Last week we got to see a Diet Coke commercial that stars Taylor Swift (and a horde of adorable kittens) and doubles as an ad for her new album 1989. Today we get to see a Target commercial that stars Taylor Swift and is an outright ad for her new album 1989. Target will be selling an exclusive version of Taylor‘s album and as you can hear above, this new commercial features a snippet of her new song Style. Click the embed above to watch the commercial and hear her new song … but be warned, Taylor does a lot of talking before the music kicks in at the :35 mark of the clip. Enjoy.

Nine Inch Nails’s Debut Album ‘Pretty Hate Machine’ Turns 25 Years Old

“That whole first album was me in the studio, just messing around"

Last week we learned that Nine Inch Nails has been nominated for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for the class of 2015 in its first year of eligibility. Yesterday, NIN‘s debut album Pretty Hate Machine turned 25 years old, which is why NIN is eligible this year for induction into the Rock Hall. 25 years. Again I am floored by how quickly the time has passed. Earlier this year, I marveled that two of my all-time favorite albums — Tori Amos‘s Under The Pink and NIN‘s The Downward Spiral — turned 20 years old this year. Now that I’m faced with the fact that another of my all-time fave albums is celebrating a milestone anniversary, I find myself floored with wonder again. More »

First Look: Here Is Gwen Stefani’s Music Video For ‘Baby Don’t Lie’

Strut Your Stuff, Gwen
Baby Don't Baby Don't

A few days ago the world was blessed with the first solo song from Gwen Stefani in 6 years and today we get to see the music video for that new song. Just a short time ago, Gwen dropped the music video for Baby Don’t Lie after she previewed the vid on The Voice last night. TRUTH BE TOLD, I’m not at all blown away by this video. It’s colorful, yes, but it’s not really all that interesting. Without the green screen, there’s not much to this video. But, that being said, I really love Baby Don’t Lie the more I hear it and now that Gwen is releasing music videos and is teasing OTHER NEW SONGS, I can’t help but be super excited for what’s to come from Ms. Stefani. What do you think of this music video for Baby Don’t Lie? Do you love it … or nah?

First Listen: Taylor Swift Releases A New Song Titled ‘Welcome To New York’

"The lights are so bright / But they never blind me"

Taylor Swift has released a new song from her upcoming new album 1989 and, IMHO, it’s the best song she’s dropped thus far. The first song from 1989 that Taylor released was the infectious but not entirely spectacular Shake It Off (I know a lot of people really love the song, I think it’s just OK). Then, Taylor released Out Of The Woods (a song she reportedly wrote about her brief relationship with Harry Styles of One Direction) which, I feel, is a really great pop song. Today we get to hear, in full, the track Welcome To New York which will be the first song on her new album. Click below and have a listen. More »
