This Carly Rae Jepsen/Trent Reznor Mashup Is a Hardcore Delight

When you think Carly Rae Jepsen, you think annoyingly catchy melodies and sugary lyrics that rely heavily on their face value. What you don’t think, or at least I didn’t, is “man, Carly Rae’s new song will sound so hard mashed up with Nine Inch Nails’ ‘Head Like a Hole.’” But you know what? I really, really like it! » 4/07/15 1:45pm 4/07/15 1:45pm

Listen to Carly Rae Jepsen's New, Magical, Crystalline Song 'All That'

Press play! What do you know, you're in an empty roller rink on disco night, and the whole thing's filling with dry-ice smoke that flashes pastel under the lights, and you're slow-dancing with yourself and it's incredibly important. Am I wrong? Do I care? Carly Rae, take me away. » 4/06/15 6:30pm 4/06/15 6:30pm

The New America: Beyonce, Rihanna and Carly Rae Jepsen Drop Singles

And the world explodereded. Watch Bey and Rihanna now before they’re taken down. Cuz they’ll be taken down. Cuz they’re exclusively on Tidal. Now thinking “This is the new America” line from Rihanna’s new song “American Oxygen” very much about listening to music in the age of Tidal. Same with “I live so I can die… » 4/05/15 3:45pm 4/05/15 3:45pm

I Demand That You Listen to This Perfect Carly Rae Jepsen Remix

I really, really, really, really, really wish this was the radio edit! Recycle Culture is Erik Moline's DIY project, whose aesthetic is summed up nicely in the title of a 2013 single: "Blank Babe Blissed Out in the House of Surreality." As it were, that phrase also sums up Carly Rae Jepsen's musical sweet spot (as… » 3/09/15 11:55pm 3/09/15 11:55pm

Tom Hanks and Justin Bieber Star in Carly Rae Jepsen's New Music Video

Carly Rae Jepsen released the music video for her new single, I Really Like You late last night. The upbeat, purely pop song is about as catchy as her hit single Call Me Maybe, and the new video, starring Tom Hanks, is about as equally upbeat. Hanks lip syncs throughout most of the video. At some point he and Jepsen… » 3/07/15 11:40am 3/07/15 11:40am

Carly Rae Jepsen's New Song Will Be Stuck In Your Head for All of 2015

"Call Me Maybe" singer Carly Rae Jepsen would really, really like you to listen to her new single "I Really Like You." This sugary pop cut is just begging for a chick flick movie montage placement as some wide-eyed girl flounces down an immaculately slicked down version of Manhattan's East Village. » 3/02/15 9:32am 3/02/15 9:32am

Ani DiFranco Cancels Songwriting Retreat At Former Slave Plantation

Today in "whaaaaaaaat," feminist icon Ani DiFranco has cancelled her four-day "Righteous Retreat," a songwriting workshop for women.

Carly Rae Jepsen Singing 'Part of Your World' Is Absolutely Perfect

Please, take a moment to listen to Carly Rae Jepsen, who took a moment from her sad life of endlessly asking people to call her, maybe to record this cover of Ariel's Lament from the Disney classic, The Little Mermaid. A more perfect alignment of recording artist and song has perhaps never been heard before. » 8/22/13 7:00pm 8/22/13 7:00pm

Carly Rae Jepsen Is the Worst So You Think You Can Dance Judge Ever

Carly Rae Jepsen doesn't know anything about dance. In most cases, there's nothing wrong with that. Plenty of us don't know about dance and we get along just fine in life. (When I say "us," I'm not referring to myself because this post is actually being ghost written by Mikhail Baryshnikov, the famous Russian dancer.… » 7/24/13 5:45pm 7/24/13 5:45pm

Upcoming (And Likely Bestseller) Paula Deen Cookbook Has Been Axed

Sexy Sex Vampires Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder Split Up

After three years of dating, Vampire Diaries' onscreen and real-life couple Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder have broken up. But TV's low-key equivalent of K-Stew and R-Patz will stay civil on the show because — quoth a source — they're "consummate professionals," and "will continue to work together and remain best… » 5/09/13 9:00am 5/09/13 9:00am

Will Charlize Theron Help Jennifer Aniston Score a Black Kid?

Jennifer Aniston, the quintessential grown-up Judy Blume heroine, has a lot of Very Important Decisions to make in the next few months as her wedding to Justin Theroux draws nigh. Apparently she's been quizzing Charlize Theron—mom of one-year-old Jackson Theron—about the process of adoption since mutual friend Chelsea… » 3/15/13 9:00am 3/15/13 9:00am

The Wonderful, Wild and Vile Fashions of the Grammy Awards

Despite the fact that CBS issued a memo warning not to show off breasts, buttocks, or any "puffy" bare skin, celebrities attending the 55th annual Grammy Awards last night embraced sheer fabrics, exposed breast curvature and even displayed nipples. That said, it wasn't a very exciting night for fashion; there were… » 2/11/13 11:20am 2/11/13 11:20am
