Steve Buscemi Becomes a Sexual Powerhouse and Taylor Swift Experiments with Modern Dance: Links You Need to See

Recently, Tom Petty sued Sam Smith over the purported similarities between Smith’s hit “Stay With Me” and Petty’s “Won’t Back Down,” and is now reaping 12% of his royalties. The people at Funny or Die, however, noticed some similarities between Petty’s songs and other artists’ hits, and decided to let the world know about them. Surely Petty will do the right thing and pay 12% royalties to anyone whose songs came first and bare any resemblance to his?  … Read More

It’s Not Just About Beck and Beyoncé: Grammy Album of the Year Is a Flawed Award

By now you may have heard Kanye West’s thoughts regarding last night’s Album of the Year Grammy win for Beck, that Beyoncé was robbed again at the hands of a white music industry that’s “disrespectful to inspiration,” that “smack[s] people in their face after they deliver monumental feats of music.” These are salacious sound bites indeed, and they’re only enhanced by Kim Kardashian’s, “Uh oh, don’t let this be another ‘George Bush doesn’t care about black people’ moment” face.

Why Kanye West, Rihanna, and Paul McCartney’s “FourFiveSeconds” Left Me Disappointed

This weekend, Kanye West, Rihanna, and Paul McCartney released “FourFiveSeconds,” a stripped-down, soulful jam. Rihanna delivers one of her best vocal performances ever atop an acoustic guitar hook — seemingly from Dirty Projectors’ David Longstreth — that wouldn’t sound out of place on an Ed Sheeran album. Kanye sings — sans AutoTune — with a defiant streak audible in his voice, about spending the night in jail (a true story, mind you) and the public coming for his pride. An organ, likely played by McCartney, and a hearty choir of voices flesh out the sound and give “FourFiveSeconds” a gospel feel as it progresses. … Read More
