Beyoncé Gets Her Own Holiday – FINALLY

Beyoncé Day is a real thing – finally this graphic I made when I saw The Formation World Tour May 1 comes in handy.

bey day

At least, for the segment of the Beyhive that resides in Minnesota, where the Governor named May 23, 2016 “Beyonce Day” – noting that she has “influenced many young girls and women with powerful, positive messages in her songs” – giving a fancy proclamation and everything!


There are only a couple of problems with this –

1.) Pretty much immediately after this announcement was made, her show in Minneapolis was evacuated due to severe weather.


(Eventually, the weather passed, and fans were given the all clear to return to their seats. Close one. But did you really think Bey would let the WEATHER stop her? Come on now.)

2.) This is intended as a one time event, NOT the annual celebration of everything Beyoncé Knowles this country really needs. Just imagine if we all took one day each year to listen to her catalogue and reflect on how she might be the greatest performer of our generation.

We can make #BeyDay a thing! Starting now, with Slacker’s Beyonce: DNA station!

Can’t Stop The Feeling – Video Premiere!

Music video releases are so complicated in 2016. A single video isn’t good enough – no one wants to wait around while you get a full production team together to shoot that. Enter the lyric video. And Justin Timberlake is taking it one step further – he gave us a “first listen” to his song from the Upcoming Trolls movie:

Then we got a “teaser” for the official vid:

And now, it’s finally here! Watch this one & dance your butt off!

And if that’s not enough, watch this JT medley including Can’t Stop The Feeling from the Eurovision finals!

Still can’t get enough Justin? Hear his new track on Today’s Hits now!

Gravity: 1, Meghan Trainor: 0

Oh no, Megs. Oh no.

Meghan Trainor had a big appearance on The Tonight Show Thursday night. And her heels might have been just a tiny bit too high.

In awesome Meghan style, she had a sense of humor about it – accepting the fall and lying flat on the floor, where Jimmy Fallon joined her. And then she walked it off! Or something.


Watch the full performance of her insanely catchy new song “Me Too” and try not to feel too much schadenfreude.

Listen to Slacker for Meghan’s latest and all your favourite songs on Today’s Hits!

As We Say In The South… Bless His Heart

The Biebs debuted his latest tattoo this week… on his face.


Resting up for the show in Philly it's gonna be a good one mark my words

I know, a little hard to see in that pic. But it’s a cross. According to Us Weekly, he got it with a friend in NYC last week, and his tattoo artist claims “It represents his journey in finding purpose with God.”

Earlier this year, JB told GQ that he would consider getting a face tattoo when he’s “really old, not super old, but maybe, like, forties or fifties or something.” Oops. Guess he just couldn’t wait.

But hang on… just yesterday he posted this picture, with the tattoo conspicuously missing. [ETA: or is that it over there on the right? Maybe this image is just flipped? Hard to tell.]


Eyes are the window to the soul

Is this going to turn into another Ed Sheerandid he or didn’t he” debacle?

Whatever he’s up to, The Slacker Nation can’t be too mad about it. He’s still got 2 songs on this week’s Slacker Top 40 – check it out to hear the biggest songs of the week according to your listening behavior!

Adam Levine is expecting… a food baby?


Week 20 and I'm finally popping! #impregnanttoo

So yeah. Guys, maybe if your wife is pregnant, don’t do this? Just a suggestion.

On second thought, maybe it’s good if he gets all his silliness out now. Just as long as he’s not this guy in the delivery room.

The Met Gala – A Chance For Celebs To Double Down On Weird Fashion

Ah, the Met Gala. Your favorite stars hold back their weirdness all year in preparation for this one event, the annual fundraiser for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute in New York. Previous years brought us Rihanna‘s crazy yellow fur trimmed blanket, Kim Kardashian’s wallpaper dress, and Solange’s… what was that thing she wore last year?

This year’s theme was “Manus vs. Machina” and you know what that means… robots. Kind of.

Unfortunately, this Tamagotchi was the closest thing Katy Perry could find to a robot.


Her date, Orlando Bloom, also rocked a Tamagotchi – but his was caught doing something totally inappropriate.

(In case the memory of things that happened in 1998 is failing you, that tiny digital creature is pooping.)

MOVING ON… I’m not sure what Beyoncé‘s dress signified, but it slayed.

Zayn… did this.


And Kanye impressed at least one person with his colored contacts… even if that person is married to him.


Everyone else mostly stuck to metallics.


And finally, although it didn’t really go with the theme, Rita Ora just wants us to remember one important thing.

Creepy Stalker Adam Levine Expecting Baby Girl

OK, maybe it’s NOT fair to label Adam a creepy stalker just because he made a video where he plays a creepy stalker (plus makes out with his wife in a literal blood bath.)

But I do have high hopes that the way Adam thinks about women will change a bit once he has a daughter of his own – this seems to happen to a lot of men. Remember when he said this to Details Magazine?

There are two kinds of men. There are men who are f**king misogynist pigs, and then there are men who really love women, who think they’re the most amazing people in the world. And that’s me. Maybe the reason I was promiscuous, and wanted to sleep with a lot of them, is that I love them so much.

Riiiiiiiiight.

But, creepy or not, sources say he and wife Behati Prinsloo are expecting a baby girl – and Behati hasn’t been shy with her pregnancy snaps on Instagram.

So far so good

Sounds like Adam can’t wait to be a dad. When E! News asked him how many kids he’d like to have, he responded “Like 17. Is that reasonable?” Proving he still has a ways to go with understanding women.
