Taylor Swift announces brand new album, releases first single + video

image

Taylor Swift announced today that she will be releasing her fifth studio album on October 27, entitled 1989. (Seems reminiscent of Adele’s theme of naming her albums after the age she was when she made them, but I’ll let it slide.) 

Swift also released the first single and video off the album, this little gem called “Shake It Off.” It’s about haters hatin’ and people just not understandin’ our dear T. Swift. 

Watch the video below and behold the definitive proof that Swift has pretty much dropped all pretenses that she’s still just a country crooner with a pop princess streak and embraced the fact that she’s a bonafide KISS FM queen at this point.

Bad taste or pretty cool? Watch the official “LOVE NEVER FELT SO GOOD” music video

In a weird way it’s like I’m mesmerized by Justin Timberlake and the crazy kids performing Michael Jackson’s signature moves. But in another, harder to describe way, I am kind of weirded out by A) hearing MJ’s voice again, and B) having those crazy kids also lip sync his lyrics. 

What do you think? Love it? Hate it? Creeped out? Don’t care? 

Side note: Justin Timberlake looks fly as fuck. Well done, sir.

Prince (yes, THAT Prince) will star on an episode of NEW GIRL!

Apparently, the artist known as Prince is a huge fan of Fox’s New Girl. Who knew? 

Word on the street is that Prince is such a big fan of the Tuesday night comedy that he pitched an idea for a episode for him to guest star on that is based off his legendary all-night house parties. Still with me? 

Prince pitched the idea to the show’s creators, and they OBVIOUSLY were on board. The mysterious musician will make his TV debut in the Feb. 2 episode of New Girl following the Super Bowl.

Lily Allen makes a triumphant return with brilliant new anthem, “Hard Out Here (for a Bitch)”

That sound you here is me clicking the repeat button ALL DAY LONG. 

After a generous break out of the spotlight, Brit femme fatale Lilly Allen is back at it and in a big way. Today she released the video for her brand new single “Hard Out Here.” 

Though the hook reads “Forget your balls and grow a pair of tits/It’s hard, it’s hard, it’s hard out here for a bitch,” the tune has some brilliant cheeky call outs for the shitshow that is the American media. Allen rips the industry a new one, and rightfully so. She was publicly humiliated because of her weight (during two pregnancies), so who better than to put on a show tearing into those types of assholes than her. She does it with panache, and her nods to the sexist ways of Hollywood are so on the nose it’s almost painful. 

Lines like “you’ll find me in the studio, not in the kitchen” and “don’t need to shake my ass for you ‘cause I’ve got a brain,” and “if I told you ‘bout my sex life, you’d call me a slut/but when boys be talking ‘bout there bitches no one’s making a fuss” are scathingly accurate.

Allen is fantastically unashamed at pinpointing the rampant sexism in the industry, and she does it all too a catchy beat while looking FLY as hell. The song is bloody brilliant and I’m sharing it with all the ladies in my life.

Go Lilly! This is the fucking best.

N*Sync to reunite at MTV Video Music Awards

Well slap my ass and call me Fatone. 

Shortly after it was announced that Justin Timberlake would be receiving the Video Vanguard award at this weekend’s MTV Video Music Awards, it was revealed that his old crew will be reuniting with him on stage for a "reunion performance." 

Though never in my wildest dreams did I ever think N*Sync would get back together, I am beyond thrilled that we will finally get to see what sulking about Timberlake’s success in the dark shadows of forgotten fame has done to JC Chasez, Joey Fatone, Chris Kirkpatrick, and Lance Bass. 

Timberlake has usurped them the “Swag As Fuck” category in every possible way, but it will still be cool to see them all together once again. Even if their appearance is sure to make you feel old as hell when you realize Joey Fatone is 41 YEARS OLD. 

I KNOW. 

The MTV Video Music Awards air Aug. 25th.

Watch the video premiere for Kings of Leon’s “Supersoaker”

Rockers Kings of Leon released a brand new video for the first single off their upcoming album today, and it’s just lovely. 

Watch the video below for “Supersoaker” and enjoy seeing those faces again. After the drama that has unfolded over the past couple of years, it’s really good to see them looking so good in this new video. 

They also revealed the cover art for Mechanical Bull (photo above). 

All in all, it’s good to see those familiar faces and I can’t wait for the album to drop on September 24. 

Welcome back, boys!
