Lady Gaga, Madonna, Eve, Britney Spears, and more!
Don’t laugh at me, but it was very hard to come up with a title for this post. Mainly because I really dislike the word “female,” so I’m going with woman-on-woman and all of this sexual innuendo that comes with. This started out as a fun week for me, and it all began with the #FlawlessRemix. Then Azealia Banks dropped a new video and I was all like YesPleaseMoreWomenRappingThankYou. But then that Lil’ Kim/Nicki Minaj beef [re-]exploded and I had that sinking feeling. Ladies, ladies, ladies. There’s room for all of us! In fact, we need MORE of us! SO this week’s #ThrowbackThursday attempts to celebrate the awesome collaborative efforts we’ve gotten from artists over the years. MORE of this! Less of the diss records. For reals.
New album promo
Last night all 9 members of Wu-Tang Clan reunited on The Daily Show for a special performance of their new single Ryan O’Neal, the first from their forthcoming new album A Brand New Day. I mean, what else do you need to know? ALL 9 MEMBERS OF WU-TANG GOT TOGETHER AGAIN LAST NIGHT!!! As far as I know, none of the current members of Wu-Tang Clan lost any penises last night so, I’D CALL THAT A WIN! But seriously, Wu-Tang have reunited! Whatchoo waitin’ for, watch their live performance in above!!
Lil' Kim is a Lotta Angry
Yesterday we got to hear Lil’ Kim‘s response diss track remix of Beyoncé‘s song Flawless that takes aim squarely at Nicki Minaj. It would appear that Kim is still pissed at Nicki because she just dropped a new diss track titled Identity Theft that continues to show how pissed off Kim is at Nicki. As you can hear below, Identity Theft doesn’t actually mention Nicki Minaj by name … but the single cover art makes it PLAINLY CLEAR that Kim is going after Nicki for, apparently, stealing her identity. Have a listen, won’t you? More »
Apparently, it was...
As you all know, I have been binge-listening to Beyoncé’s Flawless remix over the last couple of days and it has been glorious. Now here’s a funny thing. I a such a Lil’ Kim fan that the first time I heard the song I did, in fact, flinch at Nicki’s line, “The queen of rap, slayin’ with Queen B,” because every time I hear a Queen B reference in a rap (or any reference to queens, really) I automatically think Lil’ Kim. However, I also know that it’s ridiculous to ask that no other rapper ever reference herself as a queen of rap, or reference another artist as a Queen B just because it makes me think of Kim. So when I heard that Kim released a diss remix to the remix, I was all like Sigh. I’m not sure that this was entirely necessary, but click inside for more!
Plus, he TOTALLY disses Orlando Bloom
Chris Pratt sat down for a radio interview this week to promote his blockbuster hit movie Guardians of the Galaxy and was asked about his favorite music. Chris revealed that he loved Dr. Dre‘s Chronic 2 (aka 2001, aka Chronic 2001) album so much that he knows every lyric to every song on the album … and the proceeded to bust out a killer performance of Forgot About Dre (Featuring Eminem). You have to watch the video above to see for yourself, it’s pretty epic. Make sure you watch the clip to the very end because Chris sneaks in a funny little diss toward Orlando Bloom which is kinda hilarious (even tho I’m Team Bloom). This video will make your day, I promise.
"Love Me Harder"
I feel confident that Ariana Grande‘s upcoming sophomore album is going to make the internet explode. My Everything is less than a month away and poor Ariana is getting hounded by her fans like cray—they want snippets, they want singles, they want it all. The young pop star took to Instagram to show them some love, and to share a little snippet from her song “Love Me Harder,” which features The Weeknd. Click inside for more!
"I been drankin', I been drankin'"
So, I’m sure those of you who clicked to see those gruesome photos of the now-fingerless guy from Beyoncé and Jay Z‘s On The Run concert here in SoCal over the weekend are looking for something to try and erase those images from your mind. Thankfully, HBO has released professional video of Bey performing Drunk In Love to promote her upcoming concert special for the network so … have a look above and feast your eyes on Bey‘s hot hot hot performance of Drunk In Love. No fingers were lost in the making of this video.
"It feels a little artificial"
A couple of weeks ago, we got our first listen of the new song featured in the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie. Some of you may know that the last song featured in a TMNT movie was written and performed by Vanilla Ice (titled Ninja Rap [Go, Ninja, Go]) … so he has set the benchmark for all TMNT songs. As such, GQ magazine asked Vanilla Ice to comment on the new song, Shell Shocked by Juicy J, Wiz Khalifa and Ty Dolla $ign, and you can read what he had to say about it below. More »
You like big butts?
Last week we got our first listen of Nicki Minja‘s new single Anaconda and today we get our first look at the forthcoming music video. Nicki teased a short snippet of the full music video last night which gives us our first look at the booty gymnastics that she will deliver in the clip. As you may recall, Nicki delayed the release of Anaconda by a few days … very likely so that it wouldn’t interfere with the release of her Flawless remix with Beyoncé (which came out over the weekend). I like this preview clip of Nicki‘s booty clap. Do you?

The Rihanna one is the best... OMG... I cannot
Okay, our YATNB discussion forum is cancelled today for two reasons: 1.) It’s my four year-old’s birthday and I seem to have fried my brain blowing up all of these damn balloons, so I don’t even have a topic, and 2.) I can’t stop reading these effing hilarious tweets about the #FlawlessRemix. I’m not gonna lie—I’ve had the track on all day. As in all. Day. And since Trent just posted those On The Run photos, it looks like Beyoncé is taking over for a minute… which is exactly what she wanted. Damn, she’s good! Click inside for more!
