The latest Madonna track "Girl Gone Wild" hit the internet this week after teasers of the song were leaked a few weeks ago. Set to be the second single off her upcoming album, the hard-partying track is much less bubbly than her "Give Me All Your Luvin'" single, but has a build and beat that will slay in super clubs and car radio dance parties. And in true Madonna form, the single already received threats of a lawsuit even before the track was released.Read More »from Listen: Madonna’s New Song ‘Girl Gone Wild’

When socialites/reality stars and music mix, the outcome is overwhelmingly bad—note Kim Kardashian and Heidi Montag. Paris Hilton, who seemed to have slipped from her hard-partying celebutante throne, is back with a new song and video entitled "Drunk Text". Seriously.
A dance-y, thankfully spoken word song, Paris recounts the highs and lows of clubbing, drunk texting, and the consequences thereof, from racy photos to the dangers of Twitter. The beat is catchy, the lyrics are hilarious, and the video is truly distills the essence of what it means to be Paris. Less pop, more Euro, Hilton's new song is a "Stars Are Blind" killer, and is sure to make the rounds at the all-night parties in Europe and South America. A hot, eye-rolling, monotone female vocalist is key to make a hit dance song!Read More »from Paris Hilton’s Cautionary Techno Tale Of Drunk Texting: Her New Music Video

Arguably the oddest pair in hip-hop, South African duo Die Antwoord (Afrikaans for "The Answer") appears in fashion designer Alexander Wang's latest video for his T by Alexander Wang line. While it initially comes as a surprise that the edgy-chic young designer would collaborate with the edgy-creep rappers, but in the video they meld seamlessly. The T by Alexander Wang line consists of mostly casuals and basics like sweats and tees, so they're perfect for Die Antwoord to tag up. Fashion videos have become a seasonal staple for all clothing brands, but the clothing takes a back seat to the music in Wang's Spring 2012 video; and as a big music fan of course I love that.Read More »from Die Antwoord: Still Weird In Alexander Wang’s Latest Fashion Video

Controversial chanteuse Lana Del Rey's highly anticipated album was released this week, to the cheers and jeers of the Internet at large. The Hollywood glamour girl with the sultry voice is obviously no stranger to heavy criticism and cutting speculation, and some say her profile has actually been bolstered by her very vocal detractors--a career path not unlike those of viral video sensation Rebecca Black or pop star Justin Bieber. We've heard the critics go on and on about Lana's "dead behind the eyes" look, and we've heard the hoopla about her "Saturday Night Live" performance debacle, but now let's focus on what the big-name critics have said about the real meat-and-potatoes issue here: her actual debut album, Born To Die.Read More »from Lana Del Rey’s ‘Born To Die’ Album Review Round-Up: What Are The Critics Saying?

Ian Curtis must've been rolling in his grave when Disney recently debuted a T-shirt design that was "inspired" by Joy Division's iconic Unknown Pleasures album cover art. Using the gloomy '80s band's distinct Peter Saville design (which is still worn on the chests of many a hipster) as a backdrop, Disney added its own iconic Mickey Mouse-head logo to the motif, much to the disdain of some Joy Division fans.
But since the tee received widespread criticism from music fans and sites, the creators of the "Happiest Place On Earth" decided to pull the sadly ironic shirt from shelves.Read More »from Joy Division Mickey Mouse T-Shirt Pulled From Shelves

The 53-year-old singer-writer-director-producer's tulle, lace and velvet Marchesa gown was more Morticia than Madge and clashed with her brassy blonde bob. But the outfit seemed like an homage to her iconic and oft mimicked "Like A Virgin" look that featured many-a full tulle skirts and tight lace bodices. Is Madonna's style back to its old attention-grabbing ways?Read More »from Madonna’s Big Tulle Raises Eyebrows At ‘W.E.’ Premiere

Freshmen beware: Wooderson from the cult film Dazed and Confused is back, and he's hitting up da club near you. After a 19-year hiatus, beefcake actor Matthew McConaughey—a.k.a. the man comedians love to hate—has shimmied back into his tight bellbottoms, tiny tee, and creeper 'stache for Butch Walker & The Black Widows' latest music video, "Synthesizers."
...And he brought his trumpet and tiny piano with him. Wooderson does not take partying lightly.Read More »from Wooderson Is Back! McConaughey Reprises Classic Role For Butch Walker And The Black Widows’ New Video

Photo by Joe WoolheadThe teen and tween girl population may be one of the most powerful forces on the planet. I personally would rather face a stampeding herd of raptors than get between a screaming crowd of fangirls and their celebrity crush du jour. But two Justin Bieber fans took the pop singer's frighteningly strong fan draw and focused its energy on good--they literally wrote the book on "Beliebers".Read More »from Two Teens Wrote The Book On Justin Bieber Fandom For Charity

People sure love to hate Lana Del Rey. After sustaining repeated attacks on her appearance, her questionable past, and her flimsy current identity, the retro-glamour singer and "gangsta Nancy Sinatra" was torn apart once again for her less-than-impressive performance on "Saturday Night Live" this past weekend. NBC news anchor Brian Williams called her "one of the worst [performers] in 'SNL' history," while the episode's host, Daniel Radcliffe, came to her defense. So, did "SNL" producers make a big mistake by booking Del Rey, who has yet to release her major label debut album, for such a high-profile appearance so early--or by booking her at all?Read More »from Lana Del Rey Bombs With “One Of The Worst Outings In SNL History”
