After the passing of Prince, it is quite obvious that time machines are far more important than all this “Get the hell off earth before it blows, Mission to Mars” crap. As I have said numerous times, WE WILL ONLY USE IT FOR MUSIC.
Just imagine what it will be like when we teleport to this party.
Then we can take a short trip to see this guitar solo at The Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame. We can even time at 3:25 so we’re not gone long.
BTW YOU KNOW PRINCE ALREADY HAD A TIME MACHINE AND HE’S PROBABLY AT A JIMI HENDRIX/JAMES BROWN SHOW RIGHT NOW SO DON’T TELL ME IT ISN’T POSSIBLE.
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.
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.

David Spade’s latest Coachella-shaming video might be the funniest thing he’s starred in since Benchwarmers. In it, he exposes the music festival’s ugly truth with one benefit a VIP wristband can’t buy, scathing candor.
But hey Coachellans, if it’s any consolation, you’re still really good looking and you don’t have to worry about a job until you’re like what, 35?? So who cares what Spade thinks.
Did you ever go through a phase when you didn’t like Prince? I did.
Which sucked because I remember the first time I heard “Let’s Go Crazy” and how I couldn’t take my eyes off this little man doing the splits in stilettos…but as time went on I started hearing more stories and I loathed his blatant narcissism. How dare he tell people they couldn’t look him in the eye. Do you remember that? If not, read this.
However thanks to the following hilarious stories, I started to appreciate that little purple pain in the ass, his outlandish idiosyncrasies and his music…. all over again.
Obligatory Charlie Murphy/Dave Chappelle “True Hollywood Stories” reenactment.
Update! Jimmy Fallon’s Ping Pong Challenge!
Finding Nemo and Prince will always be synonymous to Questlove.
Kevin Smith and his need for a Prince translator.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to celebrate his eccentric life by listening to Prince DNA and crying purple tears.
Most of us would show up…what, 5 hours before an award show performance? Make sure you know the script, the song, where to stand, etc. with enough time left over to stress/freak out properly.
Not Lil Wayne.
He shows up 5 min before the curtain goes up, doesn’t know the song or how to play the guitar.
Enter Green God/Marijuana Yoda, Wille Nelson….who calmly shows him how to play two chords and it’s showtime.
Check out the video above because the story gets even better but it is not for the meek… and as much as some of us wish we could share a peace pipe with Willie, we are self-aware enough to know that we would turn into Will Ferrell/Old School with a tranq dart to the neck and never forgive ourselves.
Sturgill wrote it for his son and you don’t have to be Sturgill’s son to fall in love it…It’s a tasty combo platter of country and soul, smothered in wisdom and a Nirvana cover to boot. Check it out and let me know what you think.
I know, it’s tough to hear about all the amazing performances and guest appearances and collaborations happening at Coachella without feeling like you’re missing out. But you know what’s almost as good as being at Coachella? Watching Coachella performances from your own home, without having to stand around in the sun and pay 12 bucks for a beer.
Let’s start with the appearance everyone is talking about today – Kesha‘s surprise performance with Zedd. She sang the song she had been rumored to be working on with him for his last album, but it never saw the light of day. Until now.
I mean, the video quality isn’t great, but it’s probably as good – or better – than the view you’d actually have if you were sweating it out, crammed in like a sardine next to hundreds of other concert goers who forgot to wear deodorant.
OK, she sounds amazing, but here you are, enjoying that killer performance without dropping $400 a night on a hotel room that you’re probably splitting with at least 3 other friends who snore and use your toothpaste without asking.
You’re telling me you would rather be there in that crowd, with people wooing in your ear and drunkenly singing along while you’re just trying to enjoy the set, than enjoyably watching it after the fact in the relative comfort of your air conditioned home and/or office?
If you’re still really bummed about missing the fest this year, maybe this article from Money Magazine about the real cost of attending Coachella will help. And if you STILL can’t shake that #FOMO, the livestream is here, plus you can enjoy Slacker’s Coachella 2016 station, with all the biggest bands playing the fest. Listen with a 400° oven open in front of you after spending the entire day on your feet and you might be able to recreate the feeling of actually being there.
(Love, Parker, who is not all that into music fests, can you tell?)
