Listen: Local H Rocks Out On Their Cover Of ‘Team’ By Lorde

"Not very pretty, but we sure know how to run things"
"Living in ruins of a palace within my dreams"

PITNB reader Christine pointed me in the direction of this BRILLIANT cover of Lorde‘s song Team by the rock duo Local H which she shared on her website Thirty Roses and I simply had to share it with all y’all here as well. As you may recall, I shared last month video of the Scottish band Chvrches putting their own spin on this Lorde song … but this Local H version is harder, more masculine. I’ve been a fan of Local H since the mid/late-90′s (in fact, one of the last concerts that I saw in Oklahoma when I was in college at OU was Local H at the Bricktown Brewery) but I haven’t listened to them in some time. This cover is a great reminder of how great this band truly is. I’ve always been so impressed with how adept a band made up of 2 people can be. If you like the track, you can download it HERE on iTunes. Much love to Christine for sharing this video. Head over to her site HERE to hear Local H‘s cover of Toxic by Britney Spears :)

First Listen: Courtney Love Returns With A New Song Titled ‘You Know My Name’

The Double A Side
"I'll never change"

Earlier this month, Courtney Love announced that the original members of Hole would be reuniting and then had to backtrack on that announcement because, apparently, she spoke too soon. Undaunted, Courtney is moving forward with the release of her own solo music and today delivers unto us a new song titled You Know My Name. This new track will be featured on a double A side single along with the song Wedding Day, set for release on May 4. Click above to get your first listen of C. Love‘s new music. I must admit, her voice sounds very strong — which I like very much — but I’ll have to listen to the song a few times to get a better sense for it overall. What do you think?

First Listen: Miranda Kerr Makes Her Singing Debut On A Duet With Bobby Fox

'You're The Boss'
Miranda's Singing Debut

Yesterday we got our first listen of supermodel Gisele Bündchen singing the Blondie hit Heart of Glass in a new ad campaign video for H&M. Today we get to hear fellow supermodel Miranda Kerr making her singing debut on the new single You’re The Boss by Irish singer Bobby Fox. You’re The Best was a duet famously recorded by Elvis Presley and Ann Margaret, so clearly Bobby and Miranda are going for that same sexy vibe. Click the embed above to have a listen and see what you think of Miranda‘s singing ability.

Watch: Katy Perry Teases Her ‘Birthday’ Music Video With A Cast Of Colorful Birthday Party Entertainer Characters

The Best of the Worst
The World's Worst Birthday Party Entertainers

Earlier this month Katy Perry released a lyric video for her new single Birthday and today she has released a new promo video to tease the forthcoming release of the official music video for the track. In this clip, Katy gets transformed into a cast of terrible birthday party entertainers who, I’m guessing, will all be featured in the finished video. Kudos to the make-up people who managed to transform Katy completely into these characters. I think my fave is Goldie the Dancer but Kriss the Clown is pretty good, too. Which one of these Worst Birthday Party Entertainers is your fave?

First Look: Avril Lavigne’s Music Video For ‘Hello Kitty’ Is So Kawaii That It’ll Make You Puke Rainbows

"Come come Kitty Kitty / You're so pretty pretty"
"K-K-K-Kawaii!"

Avril Lavigne is still hard at work at that music career of hers and has just released a music video for her new single Hello Kitty. As you might have guessed from the song’s title, the video is Japanese-themed and as you can see in the video embed above, it’s a lot to take in. Amazingly, Avril‘s lyrics are still comprised of lines like “Mom’s not home tonight / So we can roll around, have a pillow fight / Like a major rager OMFG” which makes it sound like she’s a 16 year old rather than a 29 year old but clearly her music is geared toward her target audience. If you can imagine what it would look like if all of the supercute things about Tokyo were put into a blender, then consumed, then regurgitated, then consumed again, then puked all over a music video then you’ve got the treatment for Lavigne‘s Hello Kitty video. I’m not kidding you … it’s a lot. Check out the video above and see what you think of Avril‘s latest musical gift to the world.

Beautiful Matt Bomer Reps ‘The Normal Heart’ In ‘Out’ Magazine

"It taught me how to access myself on a completely different level”

Matt Bomer will be featured on the upcoming May issue of Out magazine in support of the new HBO film The Normal Heart but before his coverphoto and feature interview is released, Out wants to tease us with pretty stunning photo from Matt‘s upcoming photospread. Photographed by Kai Z Feng, Bomer smolders like a mofo in the photo featured below. Yeah, you’re going to want to take a look. If this first photo is an indication of what’s to come when the May issue of Out is released next month, then I think I’m going to have to pick up a copy … or 4. More »

Watch: Courtney Cox Reiterates That The Cast Of ‘Friends’ Is Never, Ever, Ever Gonna Get Back Together

"I have been trying to put together a cast dinner for 10 years"
"It's not gonna happen"

In April of 2013 we last heard talk of a long-rumored/always-talked about Friends reunion that, once again, turned out to be nothing more than wishful thinking on the part of fans. Last night, during a visit to The Late Show with David Letterman, Courteney Cox reconfirmed very plainly, very succinctly that a Friends reunion will never come to be. Never. Ever. “It ain’t gonna happen“, she says. As much as we fans may REALLY REALLY want the cast of Friends to reunite in full … we have to just let that dream go. Courteney says that she has been trying to get the cast of all 6 Friends together for just a private dinner and has been unsuccessful in getting everyone together for a decade now. If Monica Geller can’t get the cast of Friends together, than no one can. Sorry, folks. Never. Ever.

Watch: ‘Zombeavers’ Is The Zombie Movie You’ve Been Waiting For All Your Life

Amazing Movie is AMAZING
"I've never seen a real beaver before"

While hanging out with my friend Josh last night, he informed me that a new horror film titled Zombeavers is premiering at the TriBeCa Film Festival in NYC this week and I was immediately intrigued. Josh described to me the plot of the movie and I thought, Wow, that sounds awesome. Then he showed me the trailer and I immediately thought, OMG, this very well may be the best movie I’ve ever seen in my life. And now, I’m sharing this trailer with all y’all. Zombeavers tells the tale of a group of young people who are terrorized in the woods by a pack of zombie beavers. Make sure you watch the trailer to the end because if you do, you will become as OBSESSED with this movie as I am. Doesn’t this look amazing? Zombeavers, where have you been all my life?

Watch: This Video Of Patrick Stewart & Ian McKellan Playing ‘The Newlywed Game’ Proves That They Were Made For One Another

BFFs 4ever
Made For One Another

Despite the fact that this was released back in February, the video of Sirs Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellan playing The Newlywed Game together is making the rounds this week so I’m guessing that many of you probably have yet to see it … which is a shame because it’s an amazing video that needs to be watched by everyone with eyeballs. Patrick and Ian are truly the best of BFFs and this clip of them showing the world just how perfect a couple they really are is proof positive. Even if you’ve seen this video before, it’s worth watching again and again. How can you love love the bromance between Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellan?

Watch: Gisele Bündchen Sings ‘Heart Of Glass’ By Blondie For A New H&M Campaign

The Music Video
Gisele for H&M

Gisele Bündchen is the star of H&M‘s new summer ad campaign and has recorded a cover of Blondie‘s iconic song Heart of Glass for the clothier. The music video for Gisele‘s Heart of Glass premiered earlier today on Good Morning America and the song can be downloaded for at iTunes HERE. All of the royalties from this song will go to UNICEF so if you like the track and you want to buy it, you will also be supporting a very good cause. The video is fun and Gisele‘s cover is decent but it’s clear that singing isn’t her strongest suit. Nonetheless, I can appreciate that H&M has come up with a clever way to market their summer line so, I’m not mad at this musical ad campaign at all. What say you? Do you like Gisele‘s cover of Heart of Glass?
