'Criminal', 'Hot Knife' and more!
Hooray for sweet coincidences! A couple of weeks ago I’d asked PITNBr Iris to help me with a Fiona Apple Throwback Thursday, right after we heard that new track from her. Last week I couldn’t get to publishing it, and I was kicking myself, but this week we have some more Fiona news, as her track Criminal got some love on American Horror Story last night. Click inside for just a few incredible songs from Fiona!

Now through January 4, 2015
Last week we got our first look at actor Michael C. Hall in character as Hedwig as he will appear on stage in the Broadway production of Hedwig and the Angry Inch and TONIGHT will be his first performance in the role. The promo video above was released to remind the world that MCH‘s tenure in Hedwig begins tonight and will run through January 4. I will be in NYC over Hallowe’en weekend for the NY Marathon and I am HOPING to see MCH in Hedwig. He looks great in the make-up, I have every confidence he will slay on stage … starting tonight!!
Last week on the season premiere episode of American Horror Story: Freak Show, actress Jessica Lange delivered a stellar musical performance of the David Bowie song Life On Mars? Last night, co-star Sarah Paulson — who plays the two-headed characters of Bette and Dot on AHS this season — delivered a very entertaining musical performance of her own of Fiona Apple‘s song Criminal (complete with ’90s era mosh pit scene). It appears that AHS will this season feature musical performances of modern songs set in the show’s 1950s time period (a gimmick that I am loving, so far). Firstly, click the embed above to watch (or re-watch) Paulson‘s performance of Criminal on Freak Show last night … then, let’s head below and talk about the rest of last night’s episode of AHS titled Massacres and Matinees.

You really can't go home again
Late last month we got to hear Yellow Flicker Beat, the song that Lorde wrote for the soundtrack to the upcoming sequel film The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 and today we get to hear that song featured in a new preview trailer for the film. In the video embedded above, we see protagonist Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) paying a visit to her home District 12 to survey the damage done by the Capitol. The imagery is stark, the music is powerful and the scene is really exciting in that I CAN’T WAIT TO SEE THIS MOVIE! If you enjoyed the full trailer that was released in September, I think you’ll enjoy this new video trailer as well. Enjoy.
Hurray!! The shortest beef in the history of rap beefs has finally been squashed now that Snoop Dogg has publicly apologized to Iggy Azalea for poking fun at her on Instagram. As you may recall, we learned yesterday that Iggy was pissed at Snoop for posting a meme that made fun of her on his Instagram profile. Iggy‘s manager T.I. got involved and reached out to Snoop to let him know her feelings and Dogg posted a video on his official Instagram profile today apologizing for the “bad talk”*. Brilliantly, tho, Snoop never once mentions what exactly he’s sorry for nor does he mention Iggy‘s name at all. He even apologizes like a boss. Even still, beef over. Click below to watch Snoop‘s video apology and see how this rap beef ended. More »

This is a bona fide TRAVESTY
Ugh. For years now, uninspired producers have been mining properties from the past in order to reboot them for a new generation to capitalize from. Books, TV shows and movies from the ’70s, ’80s and ’90s have been retooled and revamped in new modern incarnations, usually in pretty bad ways. Today we learn that the ’80s toy/cartoon Rainbow Brite has been reimagined as a new animated TV series which looks so painfully bad that I cringe even thinking about the horror that YOU will feel when you watch the trailer above. Trust me, I feel your pain … I’ve already watched it and I hate my eyes for what they have seen. This new version of Rainbow Brite is such shit that, except for the fact that actress Molly Ringwald voices the villain, I can’t even think of one positive thing to say about it. But, in order to see that I am not exaggerating, you have to watch the trailer above and see what they have done to Rainbow Brite … then you can cleanse your palette below by watching a FULL episode of the original ’80s cartoon version of Rainbow Brite.

aka 'The Song About Harry Styles'
Yesterday we got to hear a very short snippet of Taylor Swift‘s new song Out of the Woods, the second from her forthcoming new album 1989, and as you may recall — that snippet was painfully short. Today we get to hear the song in full and, as you can hear above, it’s a pretty great pop song. Rumor claims that this song was written about Taylor‘s short romantic relationship with Harry Styles of One Direction and a careful dissection of the lyrics appears to back up that rumor. Have a listen of the song in full above and then click below to read the lyrics and see if you can piece together Taylor‘s romance with Harry from the lyrics of this song. UPDATE: If he embed above isn’t working, there is a working stream of the song below. More »
