A little while back we got to hear Team, another single from Lorde. As I said yesterday when we got a look at her new spread in Wild magazine, methinks we’re going to be seeing a lot of this girl. Team now has a new music video, and it’s got a vibe similar to Lorde’s other visuals– a dark but youthful energy circles about and, considering what we’re used to seeing from our pop singers it’s all very unique. I’m digging it! Peep the video for more!
That's right, every cringe-worthy performance in full
Earlier today I mentioned that I spent part of my night last night watching The Sound of Music Live! on NBC (along with a heap-load of other people around the country), despite the fact that most of the show was really hard to watch. And so, for those of you who love to torture yourself by watching the performances again, I present to you all of the live performances that were broadcast last night on The Sound of Music Live! If you missed out on seeing any of the song performances last night, this post is for you. You can watch the performance of The Sound of Music above and then click below to watch the 11 other song performances from the show. If you had fun cringing during the performances last night, then you can feel all those same feels again by re-watching all of the performances all over again. Have fun!

Love These Girls!
Way back in the day (AKA summer 2012), I put a HAIM track titled Forever on my list of top songs of the summer. I didn’t know a lot about the group back then but I’m sooo excited to see that they’ve been getting some serious attention since then. The group of sisters has been seriously putting in work, and last night they made their Saturday Night Live debut. They performed two tracks, The Wire and Don’t Save Me. Peep the video above and click inside for more! I’m still digging their sound– what do you guys think?
Yesterday we took a moment to check out some of Jennifer Lawrence‘s recent red carpet looks, as she’s been promoting her new film The Hunger Games: Catching Fire across the globe. J-Law had many looks that I loved but I have to admit, as I was collecting the photos I was continuously distracted by Elizabeth Banks. I mean, this woman has been stunning on the red carpet! It’s hard to pick a favorite look here, but this Elie Saab Couture gown is everything– looks like something straight outta the Capitol. I also adore her in that slinky little light green, Jason Wu number. She is doing, like, 72 things right and for that I thank her. Peep the gallery for more!

Men of the Year
Yesterday we learned that GQ selected their Men of the Year for 2013 and among this year’s honorees is California rapper Kendrick Lamar. Today we learn that Kendrick has been named the Rapper of the Year by GQ as we check out Lamar‘s coverphoto for the new issue of the mag. Additionally, we get to read some excerpts from his coverstory interview and we get to see a photo from the accompanying feature story. It’s been a good year for Kendrick Lamar, clearly GQ had to take notice. More »
'Elvis and Jesus and Marilyn and extraterrestrials all in one.'
For those of you who’ve been wondering about the goings-on of Lana Del Rey, apparently she’s been working on a short film project. The Ride singer shared a clip of the movie (titled Tropico) on Twitter the other day, and described it in Nylon magazine as ‘Elvis and Jesus and Marilyn and extraterrestrials all in one.’ LMAO, I can’t wait! LDR will star in the film alongside Shaun Ross. Oh, and I’m still keeping hope alive for some sort of Frank Ocean collaboration in the future. Peep the video for more!
The 'Highly Highly Anticipated' Memoir We've Been Waiting For
As Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues prepares to hit theatres this Christmas we have a few important words from Ron Burgundy to get us psyched for the film’s release. I’m sure y’all have been seeing his Dodge (or Yodge) commercials, but today our favorite anchorman is promoting himself. Let Me Off At The Top is a very big deal, and I definitely plan to nab a copy of this totally fictional autobiography. Peep the video for more!
Expect Many, Various Weed References
I’m almost embarrassed to admit to how much I like the show Workaholics. It has to be the most immature, ridiculous, stoner-ific show on right now, but I can’t help it! It’s hilarious. So when I heard there was a Workaholics movie getting ready to go down, I got almost as psyched as I did over the Bored To Death movie (almost… and also– where is that movie?!). But apparently, it’s not exactly a Workaholics movie, it just stars the Workaholics cast. Anyway. I’m gonna keep calling it the Workaholics movie. Click inside for more!

David Bowie, Morrissey, Kim Gordon & More Pay Tribute
On Sunday we learned the exceedingly sad news that rock legend Lou Reed passed away at 71 years of age. At the time, no cause of death was announced but today we learn from his doctor that Lou died from liver disease (as was presumed). As you may know, Reed underwent a liver transplant back in May and, very sadly, succumbed to his illness this week. As soon as word of Reed‘s death spread, musicians from every genre paid tribute to the late music icon thru various forms of social media. Click below to learn more about Lou‘s death and read/see a few very nice tributes to his memory. More »
"We’ve got one or two records ...”
SO … a Columbia Records CEO sat down to chat with Billboard magazine about the forthcoming December release of Céline Dion‘s new album and he kinda/sorta may have hinted significantly that Beyoncé, too, might be releasing her new album in December as well. The CEO never mentions Bey by name but he does promise that Columbia is working on releasing a big album from a major artist on their roster (the Billboard interviewer tries to pin him down to mentioning Bey‘s name). The only big artist on the roster who has been teasing the release of a new album sooner rather than later is Beyoncé. HMMM. Click below to read exactly what he said and let the speculation commence.
