I understand opening SNL40 with Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake. It certainly wasn't a surprise though. This is a great example of choosing to give people what they want over what they need. Then again, the idea of a reunion show is a "want over need" situation to begin with. It was to be expected. Full Story

I mean I guess you can’t do something like this anymore without mentioning her. And she wants the credit, godammit! (Or at least Kanye West does.) Drake released a short film yesterday. Then, last night, a new album. Tape? He’s calling it a tape. Collection? Whatever. It’s 17 tracks. Full Story

Taylor Swift loves the number 13. And since it’s Friday the 13th, she just dropped the video for Style, easily one of the best, if not the best, songs on the 1989 album. Also, not surprisingly, she’s wearing shorts. I love Style. So I was really, really looking forward to this. To be honest then, I’m kinda disappointed. Full Story

This past Super Bowl was the 10th anniversary of Janet Jackson and that punk who let her eat all the sh-t that happened after. I was thinking about that the other day because we’ve been playing some Janet in the studio during commercial breaks. And then I thought about how much I miss Janet Jackson’s music videos. Full Story

There’s a new male artist that everyone’s talking about. Surprise. He’s now been linked to Taylor Swift. Taylor and Hozier were both at Sam Smith’s Grammys after-party on Sunday night. According to E! News, they were hanging out a lot. And flirty. And laughing. And maybe she kissed him a few times on the cheek. Full Story

It’s a good song…although I find it repetitive which is probably why it needed her. Because did she ever take the Church to another level, holy F-CK, Annie Lennox. Holy F-CK. Who could possibly follow that? Is that why I’m listening to No More I Love Yous on repeat this morning? And then there was Prince. Full Story

This was released on SnapChat today so I don’t know how long it’ll be before this video gets taken down. I suggest you watch it right away… It’s new Madonna. The song is Living For Love. Not the worst recent song we’ve heard from her. But you know Madonna. And if it’s one thing Madonna knows, it’s a music video. Full Story

I needed an exclamation point on that title. Don’t pretend that that title isn’t an exclamation point for you too.

Just released this morning – it’s the video for Rihanna’s FourFiveSeconds with Kanye West and Paul McCartney. I already mentioned last week how much I love LOVE LOVE the song. And this video… Sometimes they f-ck up a video, you know? Like it does nothing to enhance the music. Full Story
