Last week we learned that Nine Inch Nails has been nominated for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for the class of 2015 in its first year of eligibility. Yesterday, NIN‘s debut album Pretty Hate Machine turned 25 years old, which is why NIN is eligible this year for induction into the Rock Hall. 25 years. Again I am floored by how quickly the time has passed. Earlier this year, I marveled that two of my all-time favorite albums — Tori Amos‘s Under The Pink and NIN‘s The Downward Spiral — turned 20 years old this year. Now that I’m faced with the fact that another of my all-time fave albums is celebrating a milestone anniversary, I find myself floored with wonder again. More »

A few days ago the world was blessed with the first solo song from Gwen Stefani in 6 years and today we get to see the music video for that new song. Just a short time ago, Gwen dropped the music video for Baby Don’t Lie after she previewed the vid on The Voice last night. TRUTH BE TOLD, I’m not at all blown away by this video. It’s colorful, yes, but it’s not really all that interesting. Without the green screen, there’s not much to this video. But, that being said, I really love Baby Don’t Lie the more I hear it and now that Gwen is releasing music videos and is teasing OTHER NEW SONGS, I can’t help but be super excited for what’s to come from Ms. Stefani. What do you think of this music video for Baby Don’t Lie? Do you love it … or nah?
Shia LaBeouf has been making headlines in recent months with his odd art installation projects (HERE and HERE) as well as his criminal bad boy behavior (HERE) but today, he is making headlines for his appearance on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of Interview magazine. As you can see in the gallery presented here, Shia stripped down for this magazine photospread and, well, he looks really darn good, if I do say so myself. When he’s acting all crazy and whacky, it’s easy to forget that this young man has grown into quite a specimen so … yeah … it’s no wonder his hotness isn’t usually at the forefront. I say, stop hiding your light under a bushel … like, seriously. More of this and less of that other crazy stuff, please.
Nicki Minaj is featured in the new issue of GQ magazine where she was asked a few questions about her eye-catching, flamboyant, uber sexual music video for her single Anaconda and she eventually gave her answers … but only after she fell asleep a few times during the interview. LOL. That’s right … Nicki nodded off more than once during the course of her interview with GQ. The interviewer makes clear that Nicki didn’t actually curl into a ball and take an actual nap … but she did nod off more than once. So either Minaj was just really, really tired … or she was really, really bored. My guess is that she was probably somewhere in between. Click below to see Nicki in this month’s issue of GQ and read what she had to say about Anaconda … when she was actually awake to give her answers. More »

Taylor Swift has released a new song from her upcoming new album 1989 and, IMHO, it’s the best song she’s dropped thus far. The first song from 1989 that Taylor released was the infectious but not entirely spectacular Shake It Off (I know a lot of people really love the song, I think it’s just OK). Then, Taylor released Out Of The Woods (a song she reportedly wrote about her brief relationship with Harry Styles of One Direction) which, I feel, is a really great pop song. Today we get to hear, in full, the track Welcome To New York which will be the first song on her new album. Click below and have a listen. More »

Jenny McCarthy is known for saying pretty controversial, sometimes ignorant things … which is why, I think, she was hired to co-host The View and then fired from co-hosting The View after almost a full season. Today we learn of Jenny‘s latest ignorant comments made in public … just to remind us that she’s still out there saying uneducated and, IMHO, idiotic things. After she proudly proclaims that she believes she feels “transgender” inside because she feels like “one of the boys”, she goes on to openly wish that her son is gay … so that he can grow up and do her hair and go shopping with her … because that’s what gay guys do, apparently.
