Last week we got to see a few photos from the set of No Doubt‘s new music video for Settle Down and on Friday, we got to check out the cover artwork for the single. Today we get to check out behind the scenes video from the music video set. This sneak peek gives us our first look at the filming of the video but it does NOT give us a sample of the song itself. Boo. Additionally, No Doubt have released a second webisode that gives us further insight into the creation of their new album Push & Shove. Check out all the fun below. More »

Gay Pride Month may have just ended here in the US but that doesn’t mean there isn’t cause for celebration elsewhere in the world. This Spring, France elected Francois Hollande as their new president partly because he ran on a campaign that promised the advancement of marriage equality in that country. Today we learn that Hollande‘s administration has announced the amazing news that they plan to legalize same-sex marriage nationally in France sometime next year. More »

Alicia Keys recently promised fans in a YouTube message that she would have some new music for them and sure enough– here it is! New Day is the first track from the next album, Alicia‘s first since 2009′s The Element of Freedom. It’s also her first record since becoming wife to Swizz Beatz and mother to baby Egypt. According to Alicia, the album has been 8 months in-the-making and it’s almost complete. I think we can expect very good things. It is Alicia Keys. Listening session popping off inside!

Yesterday morning I made my way to Griffith Park for week 3 of marathon training with Team 2 End AIDS. Our pace group, the 10 minute mile folks, had to come up with a name so we decided to call ourselves Hang 10 … which is apt considering we are training to run the Honolulu Marathon :) Much of the rest of my day was pretty relaxing and last night, David and I finally got to hang out with dear friends we haven’t seen in ages!

Ahhh, there’s nothing like a good diss record. But sadly, this isn’t a good diss record. Still, it’s relevant to our ongoing Chris Brown/Drake/W.i.P nightclub ridiculousness coverage. And now we have confirmation (at least from Chris) that the beef is real. Chris Brown hopped on the remix to Chief Keef’s I Don’t Like (the remix is by Kanye and friends, and now Chris and Cali rapper Game have their version), and said some really mean things about Drake‘s eyebrows. Sub-par lyrics and excessive use of the word ninja inside. Except not ninja. The NSFW and NSF for the NAACP version of ninja.

Click below to hear this new track in full and get a taste of what’s to come from Kelis. More »

It sounded like a complete joke but seeing as how the ring costs $550
I’m going to assume that this is kind of the real deal. TheCheeky.com
is here to help you solve one of the biggest issues (supposedly) that married couples face: infidelity. The titanium wedding band appears traditional on the outside but is engraved on the inside with the words I’M MARRIED
, sure to leave an imprint on the fingers of any man with wandering eyes… and various other body parts. If I could, I would make this the second That-Ish-Cray Of The Day
, but we already have one
and it’s against PITNB
policy to have two. So for now this is just pure, unadulterated (pun intended), ridiculousness.
