Sleigh Bells Are Taking Demi Lovato To Copyright Court.

Noise Pop duo Sleigh Bells say Demi Lovato ripped them off. They think her song “Stars” is way too much like their song “Infinity Guitars” and it’s beyond the “realm of coincidence.”

Sleigh Bells hit her up about it last year and obviously felt strongly enough about it to move forward with a lawsuit.

Demi’s producers told Rolling Stone last year, “We did not use any samples in Demi Lovato’s song ‘Stars.’ Demi was also not involved with the production. She only wrote top line.”

James Corden joined Coldplay at The Rose Bowl to sing “Nothing Compares 2 U” for 90,000 people. NBD.

Lucky for Corden he knocked it out of the park.

Question, do we have to keep saying Prince “tribute”? Genuinely asking. At what point will they stop being “tributes” and just be “favorite covers”?

Of course no one wants Flea to ever leave the Chilis, but maaaaybe it would be okay if it were Koko The Gorilla?? Koko is quite frankly, the sh*t and a rockstar in her own right. She’s 45, she uses sign language to communicate, she’s a prolific artist and celebs understandably want to hang out with her. Better yet, maybe Flea and Koko can do a side project??

Can we call it “HOT KOKO”?? SAY YES. I would definitely buy a ticket to that show.

Learn more about Koko here and you’ll understand why Flea says, “This is the greatest thing that ever happened.”

Rihanna had a meta moment when she stopped by The Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Art to visit a headless statue of herself called Ewaipanoma (Rihanna), created by Colombian artist Juan Sebastián Peláez.

According to MTV, “Ewaipanoma” is the name of a mythical race of headless humanoids supposedly discovered by English explorer Walter Raleigh in Venezuela at the end of the 16th century. Berlin Biennale’s website notes that Peláez’s work features “upright, oversize photo-cutouts of headless human bodies—captured in athletic positions, sporting bikini swimwear, or posing in the limelight in glitzy, bling gowns—with faces surreally integrated into their chests. Both the bodies and faces are sourced from pop queens and soccer stars from the Caribbean or Latin America.”

You can read more about it here. It’s open to the public and by the looks of the photo there aren’t any guard rails so who wants to climb that bad girl?

Come on JT! Bring it in for the real thing! By the looks of this photo, I can’t help but wonder if Justin Timberlake has a “don’t touch me” rule ala Avril Lavigne :/ You do remember this don’t you?

The bride’s father spotted Justin grabbing a bite to eat at The Omni Mount Washington Resort in New Hampshire and asked if he’d surprise Chesley Gaudet and Ryan Parks with a quick photo and it was nice of him to take the shot but I think they certainly look like lovely people worthy of an arm!

Ps – Promise me the next time you run into JT, you’ll do this.

Drake’s Dad Is Gonna Make Your Ear Drums Moist With His New R&B Album.

Don’t hate Dennis Graham for being 60+ and having the bling to launch a music career.

Dennis says he is “Following in his son’s footsteps” with a new R&B album and this Champagne-GrandPapi is ready to tease/please with the music video for his title track, “Kinda Crazy”.

Thanks to the fog machine, throne, candelabra, over-sized suit with the kind of zippers that never open when you need them too and Ovo medallions, there is no doubt his vibe of luxury will translate to the ladies.

Don’t be surprised if you love it. Dennis is oozing with game.

“A Sensitive Rap Tribute” To New ‘Responsible Ginger’ Character Crush, Barb Holland.

SPOILER ALERT. Don’t go any further. Consider this the sign/barbed wire outside of a government facility.

I’m only 4 episodes into Stranger Things and I feel like I’m dodging spoilers like bagged poop on the sidewalk.

What I will tell you is the show has all the elements of 80s movie magic. 4 best friends riding bikes (seriously kids used to ride bikes everywhere in the 80s…no I mean it), walkie-talkies, sneaking out/hiding someone in your room for weeks and your mom doesn’t notice, etc.

It is Netflix GOLD and it is no wonder a character like Barb Holland has become rap tribute-worthy.

Thanks to Dr. Chorizo Productions, responsible mom-jean-rocking gingers are finally getting the respect they deserve!

Btw, if you’re feelin’ the 80s-vibe, check out my 80s hits station. It’s perfect for pool parties whether you invite the popular easy gals, jerk jocks, hot nerds or faceless guys!

Kaleo Wins After Gambling On The One Commercial Without Talking Animals/Babies.

Kaleo‘s “Way Down We Go” is featured in this UK skin care commercial along with world class ballerina, Alessandra Ferri, dancing with a hologram of herself at 19…Between the song and her dancing, I was covered in goosebumps 10 seconds in.

Thanks to the spot “Way Down We Go” is the #1 most shazaamed song in the Uk. It is also edging it’s way up the Weekly Alternative Countdown.

Definitely an ad win. Sorry puppy/monkey/baby.
