Anti is not our adult Santa, as we’ve come to fear; Anti may, in fact, be real, and at the very least “Work,” featuring Drake, is incredibly real, insofar that downloading something off Tidal for $1.29 after three attempts to pay is “real.” Never mind that, though: here’s a new freakin’ Rihanna song!
Rihanna is the most important millennial of our time. The Rihanna Rihport is where we chronicle the magnitude of her lived existence.
In 2015, there was beef. Boy, was there ever beef. Let’s take a look at the year in public, prolonged, funny and existentially ponderous disagreement, and resolve to be a little more chill in 2016.
For every former emo teen, there is an individual emo revival. A long drive, a 1975 track, a screenshot of literally any scene from the OC: it can come out of nowhere, and there’s no predicting what will plunge you back into the days when you loved journals and fingerblasting and nobody ever washed their jeans.
Quentin Tarantino is apparently a “huge fan” of Jennifer Lawrence. The director met with Lawrence to discuss the possibility of her portraying Daisy Domergue in his new film, The Hateful Eight. “She was just doing me a courtesy to see me, I think. She was doing Joy. She had to do all this publicity on the Hunger Games…
Five years ago, I was an editor at Vibe, and I got an assignment to interview Usher. It was my second time profiling him for a cover story, but this setting would be more intimate than the previous one—instead of meeting in a hotel conference room, we’d talk at an outdoor bar at the Sunset Marquis in Hollywood, just…
Get those flashing alarm emojis on deck because there is some BIG NEWS on the horizon. Young Bieber and the father of Aubrey Drake Graham are collaborating...on something.
In May 2015, Ernest Baker, Drake-approved writer and self-appointed internet tastemaker, allegedly assaulted and harassed his ex-girlfriend, Complex Music managing editor Lauren Nostro. The news gained public attention Wednesday night after the pair’s mutual friend, the writer Meaghan Garvey, vaguely tweeted about…
Erykah Badu’s remix of Drake’s relentless radio hit “Hotline Bling” went viral earlier this year, despite the millions of other remixes, largely thanks to its body roll-worthy bridge and jokes. Oh, the jokes:
Recently, as if acting of their own volition or by the direction of some cruel puppeteer, my hands navigated to iTunes and purchased Drake’s single “Hotline Bling.” At first I bemoaned this purchase, which I was certain would result in nothing more than the foolhardy loss of $1.29 and some extra data languishing on my…
Serena Williams has been fighting knee problems and depression since losing the U.S. Open in September, when she ended her season early just short of accomplishing a calendar year Grand Slam. But on Wednesday, while eating Chinese food, she stopped a thief from swiping her iPhone in a flash.
Amid the sea of trash “Hotline Bling” remixes, here’s one of the only two that matters (next to Erykah Badu’s version). Canadian singer Justin Bieber teased his remix to his fellow countryman Drake’s smash single today.
With Drake’s goofy new video for “Hotline Bling” currently being blanketed with praise—Drake dances like... me, LOL, cry the masses, incorrectly—it is slipping by the wayside in our cultural parlance that the track is a blatant lift of the indie Virginia rapper D.R.A.M.’s breakout single from 2014, “Cha Cha.” Aiding…
On Monday night Drake released the video for “Hotline Bling”—his maybe inspired, maybe remixed take on D.R.A.M.’s “Cha Cha.” As he has rather consistently done for the past few years, Drake delivered in the most deliberately viral and Drake-y way: like a huge dork.
The Weather Channel has released the list of 2015-2016 winter storm names and, while some blizzies are stuck with classic titles like “Hera” and “Olympia,” others are getting a modern twist. Batten the hatches, everyone: winter storm Yolo is on its way.
One more for the Jezebel ethics board, involving the fact that I love Drake. I love him so much. My boyfriend has said I’m allowed to kiss him if I ever get the chance. But let’s be real! That’s never going to happen, and I know this because I’m not fucking insane.
Weekly-ish, a pre-approved, snap-judged music guide based on our very scientific, non-subjective Yes/No rating system. There’s really no debating this, come on stop.
Here we are, on the biggest night in the entire world and/or since last night: the 67th Annual Primetime Emmys. Will they be as shitshow as last year’s, or will they be an even shittiershow? Maybe all of that! The Jezebel staff will be exploring these and more important questions all night in our liveblog, sponsored…
