‘We asked Edie Parker to designed a duo of hip-hop-themed clutches, just for us,’ says the description and of course they are sold for the modest sum of $1,695 each.

Off the soundtrack to the movie “Southpaw”, this is a braggarts pleasure, nobody spits it and rhymes it for five minutes as well as Em, and this isn’t him in Ree duet pop mode, this is hot firing on all cylinders. “I am phenomenal with every ounce of my blood” he roars, as Eminem works for all its worth the boxing-rapper metaphor. Consider it “Eight Miles” by other means. DJ Khalil produced it – B+
Rap is not responsible for the decline of Christianity, on the contrary they push the God agenda all the time… but O’Reilly is a simple guy with huge blinders on each side of his big head… A decline of Christianity? I see that as a good thing, may be the product of more science in school curriculum?
I am sure Kevin is a very nice person but maybe his beef is with Berry Gordy who actually moved Hitsville out as soon as he could then Eminem who remained faithful. And even if they have, so what? It’s a big city and if the automobile industry isn’t gonna save it, Jack white sure won’t.
‘The Interview’, Sony Pictures’ Christmas big release which wasn’t released in fear of a North Korea’s cyber attack, finally got a limited release, but history will tell if this was a good or bad move for a probably bad movie! I am saying this without having even seen it, but what do you expect from a movie you can already see on YouTube the day it is out? However, I don’t want to talk about the plot to assassinate Kim Jong-un which is the subject of the film, this is not the interesting part.
But I may fight for gay rights, especially if the dyke is more of a knockout than Janay Rice / Play nice? Bitch I’ll punch Lana Del Rey right in the face twice, like Ray Rice in broad daylight in the plain sight of the elevator surveillance / ’Til her head is banging on the railing, then celebrate with the Ravens.”
Guts Over Fear – Eminem And Sia – Sia was born to sing the hook on hip hop songs, she drags royal over her own stuff, “Chandelier” eas a true bore, but her voice adds gravity, here she has more power then Rihanna ever does, to rap songs – B+
I am the furthest thing from a prude (nor was I innocent when I was younger) but I can be somewhat conservative as I ahem mature or maybe it has more to do with having little girls. Troubled me seeing young woman drunk or on drugs walking by themselves or throwing themselves at men (boys)
The thing about Ree and Em is they are both cool customers, they can’t feign feelings, they work distance, and neither compromised on stage. Something else, Ree is on the record as only finding black men attractive, so quite literally there is no sparks on her part for Eminem and it shows
Right As Rain – Adele – Who was it who called Adelle a psychotic moldy old cow? well, yes, I admit it but I was discussing 21 not 19, and I even liked “Someone Like You” and I really love this gorgeously sung MOR soul song, from 19, which I didn’t hate – A
I keep on looking at the date, August 16th, and the time, 7pm, and hoping there is some mistake somewhere because one of the most eagerly anticipated concerts of they year, the 15th anniversary of Okayplayer (you know, Guestloves music website thingy) at Summerstage, is happening at the same time as Eminem and Rihanna at Metlife. So I will be going to Em but my heart will be with Dev Hynes
There are other differences, though the sheer weight of hits isn’t one, there aren’t as many for Ree and Em to collaborate on and that is clear by the plethora of Rihanna tracks followed by Eminem tracks: it is clear this is two separate sets which segue at the start and end.
Heaps Of Sheep – Robert Wyatt – Perhaps his single most accessible song to date, finds the paraplegic dreaming that he is wandering on the seashore. Insomniac Robert’s goose was cooked till finally the freedom of dreams lets him walk again.
So because these other rappers were ‘killing it’, Eminem got super jealous and wanted to write a song ‘dissing everybody’, but alas he never did it, as this would have been a ‘career suicide’.
While the standard of living has dropped through the floor since 2009, concerts continue to price themselves through the roof. And for $70 you will get two assholes posing themselves to heroic extents. One of whom is a great rappe
Colored Spade – Lamont Washington – The President of the United States of love takes racial slurs and embraces them with more power than raps pre-empting of “nigga” some 20 years after “Hair” came out of the Public Theater – A
the only good thing about this relationship is given the circumstances, Rihanna is forced to get on stage at a reasonable hour and not keep the world waiting –like Madonna and Lady Gaga before her, half the damn night so see her royal indifferenceness
1.3M and counting for Beyonce and except for the tenacious Ms. Clarkson who keeps it wrapped in red even after Santa has been and gone, everybody else is moldy left overs.
Not much to think about here, right? The bloody charts haven’t moved in a month and here is a question, where the heck is young Beyonce? Surely XO should have hit the charts by now? I hope they don’t think “Drunk In Love” is gonna put it just because her husband is on the track.
While America slept, somewhere out of sight, “Drunk And In Love” is in t #12 and Miley’s “Adore You” has a new video and here is an easy prediction, they will both spend the next two months on the charts. PS “Adore You” is a terrific song.
I really love it when an artistic success is a popular success and looking at my list of fave albums, well, even Yeezus didn’t sell that much. Beyonce is a beacon of artistic integrity and musical kismet. A complete triumph to end 2013.
Pitbull is right back at the top after his phenomenal performance at Jingle Ball last week and “Timber” is the only song I’d listen to for, how you say, pleasure. I hate “Counting Stars” although I can hear how some other people might love it…
A blip upwards this week at least because of Jason’s awesome ballad “Trumpets” and goes a long way to saving a short ripping, acrobat dancing, background taping loud mess at Jingle Ball! Looks like clear sailing for Lily’s song of Christmas
Sweet Home Chicago – Freddie King – This guitar sound is so heavy it sounds like a supple bass or a rhythm guitar turned to 11, and the notes bend around the melody in a sledgehammer precursor to metal – A
Here comes Christmas and the proof is Pentatonix viral hit version of “Little Drummer Boy”, a capella and none the worse for it with a pretty good human beatbox. Meanwhile, Britney has the lowest sales of her career. Miley is gone, Gaga is gone and Katy is next.
This makes it Rihanna’s 13th # 1m according to Billboard: ” Rihanna ties Michael Jackson for the third-most leaders in the Hot 100’s history… she passes Madonna and the Supremes, each with 12. Color me impressed.
Sometimes you look at the charts and you say, ‘who are these people? I haven’t heard of one of them.” And other times you look at the charts and you say “Who are these people? Well, I know every single one like the back of my hand and they all suck”. 2013 has been a lousy year for music and this is a disgraceful chart.
That Cities thing is from a Minneapolis radio station KTCZ, it is for charity and it takes the best live performances from the past year, guys like Passenger and fun., and it sells the albums at Target. They sold out their entire 40,000 production run in a week
I can’t say I’m bothered by Robbie one way or the other, I am a big fan but this is awful thin gruel, otherwise this is all over the place and very English in many ways. Still, is EDM gonna lose its grip in 2014?
Hand it to Ke$ha on this one, she handles the chorus with complete confidence and smartiness and the song is a sweet nothing but Pitbull always mixes pop smarts with Latin American savvy.
Celine Dion: she might well be a working class phenom but she still is the most overblown singer on the planet; I can’t take her. She can’t express an emotion without drawing you a diagram
This isn’t a bad top ten, 17 year old Dutch sensation Martin Garrixx has a wonderful slice of House beats here that have taken Europe by storm and Lily Allen, who I may well be congenitally incapable of saying a word against has for the second time in her career released a cover that cuts the original
“The Monster” sales slide is owed to iTunes’ customers who opted to “complete” the “Marshall” album by upgrading their earlier purchases of “Monster” to a full album. Effectively, consumers who completed the album were returning a song
Eminem has sold as many copiess, nearly a million, as #2 – #32 combined. Eminem is a big star and the album is a serious continuation of Part One, but even so the explanation here is that sales fall off so precipitiously that once you’re past the Top 20 at best, they are essentually meaningless.
Of the five songs he has released so far from his upcoming album, only one is a complete dog, and this one is a specific bruised new r&b song of the first order and a refutation of his new born reputation: “I ain’t all bad” he claims, and I buy it – B+
Shane Filan, who he, you ask? A former member of the former boy band Westlife, that’s who. Anybody else you need? The Overtones, five man harmony group rejected by X Factor as a foursome, add a fifth and bring home the goods
US House DJ Storm Queen follows in the footsteps of Avicii, with a heavy house pop song of wit and wonder. In other words: not bad at all.
I know I’ve been writing “Applause” is good not great, but it is great compared to the rest of this crap and it is great in context, closing down ARTPOP
‘It was more like calling someone a bitch or a punk or asshole. So that word was just thrown around so freely back then. It goes back to that battle, back and forth in my head, of wanting to feel free to say what I want to say, and then [worrying about] what may or may not affect people.”
Matangi – M.I.A. – This isn’t any better than Vicki Leekx, but it isn’t any worse, and it has “Come Walk With Me”, a potential dance crossover hit and so many beats it’s gonna seriously shake up your life – A
Winchester Cathedral – New Vaudeville Band – In the mid 1960s appropriating sounds from the 1920s was all the rage and here NVB sound like a time machine band with a foghorn, blaming an ancient building for the singer being stoof up at the alter – A-
‘ve heard the Eminem and M.I.A. and I love them both, also I’ve heard some of Midlake and I like that a lot as well. Also, Tennis are a real good band and Hellogoodbye are above average emo rockers, Cut Copy are the EDM you love to hate, haven’t heard Luscious Jackson in awhile AND FINALLY… Celine Dion and James Blunt missing Halloween by that much.
At the 2013 Electric Zoo “Eat Sleep Rave Repeat” was the national motto and Fatboy Slim actually does it justice, and that’s one of four good new songs on the chart including, shockingly enough, the only time the Wanted have ever trounced One Direction and not including the lousy new Eminem. Eminem has some killers on his new album and this ain’t that.
Watching SNL is like visiting a hospice once a week and the damn patient just wont die. I am embarrassed at how bad the show is and I have hated nearly every musical guest
Still Into You – Paramore – The band’s greatest moment off their excellent current album is a total hook lined wonder of love and connection – A
The question is: are there enough Eminem fanatics to keep this slim shadiest on songs in the charts? Break it down: 3 hip hop stars, 6 pop stars and a novelty hit.
Wow, Eminem is in twice and they are both OK even if neither are the greatest of his career. Iggy can really rap, Wilkinson is OK drum and bass and Lawson are a boy band who dress like Mumford and son.
Nothing Gets Crossed Out – Bright Eyes – The Conor Oberst hits an unbelievable height here, but since I just interviewed Maria, I am listening to her play Emmylou to Conor’s GP. A perfect lyric, lovely melody, and a brilliant bridge. Simply one of his greatest – A+
Two excellent songs here haven’t been released in the States yet, Rudimental pal John Newman and last years model Conor “Las Vegas Girl” Maynard, have both dropped first rate tracks in the UK as good as their very best
