This begs for a drug PSA…how about something like this:

“Sure Snoop Dogg can score song hits and bong hits but pretty soon Snoop is gonna strike out!”


Oh, CMT Awards. You’re killing me.

A lot of people are all upset that there were so many pop collaborations at last night’s CMT Music Awards. I don’t happen to be one of them, but I do take issue with how they collaborated.

Here’s the thing. Although I am fully immersed in and in love with country music, I also like pop music a lot. (And rock, hip-hop, rap… I just love music!). So when Pitbull or Fifth Harmony or Pharrell or Leona Lewis want to be part of a country awards show, I say let ’em all in! It’s about time everybody from every genre of music recognizes how great country music and its artists are, and it’s about time fans of those artists see it, too.

Where I have a problem is when country artists are turned into backup singers for pop artists at a country awards show. Come on, CMT. Listen, I know you need ratings, and I know you think you’re going to bring in a bigger audience by adding stars from other genres, but do you remember what the “C” stands for in CMT?  I wouldn’t expect to see George Strait show up at the AMAs to collaborate with DNCE and expect the band to do “All My Exes Live In Texas.” When people turn on the CMT Awards – or any country awards show, for that matter – there’s a good chance they’re expecting country music.

Here’s a crazy idea: How about next time you decide to flood your “country” awards show with pop stars, you keep the focus on the country part of the collaborations and let the pop artists backup the country singers? So weird, right? Just try it. I think you might like it.

P.S. Congratulations to the winners!

“Jiminy Glick” is a character Martin Short has resurrected for his show Maya & Marty with Maya Rudolph.

Jiminy is an unprepared, inappropriate, oblivious, sweaty glutton…in other words, he’s brilliant and usually ends up insulting his guest straight to their face, before falling out of his chair. If you dig “Between Two Ferns” with Zach Galifinakadisdfsdfs, you’ll appreciate Jiminy….And at the very least you’ll appreciate Drake’s ability to keep a straight face.

Rihanna’s Most Shocking Look Yet

Seems like Rihanna isn’t just creating art with her music – she’s also inspiring it. Don’t believe me? Just check out the giant, headless cutout of Ri that’s on display at The Berlin Biennale For Contemporary Art.


Sooooo… arty.

The work is from Columbian artist Juan Sebastian Pelaez, who has been making waves since 2014 with his unusual offerings. This is the artist’s first piece to be unveiled from his latest collection, and is titled Ewaipanoma (Rihanna). But Rihanna isn’t the only celeb getting decapitated for art.



The 2015 Miss Universe Pageant

“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.”

What do you think? Creepy or cool? No comment so far from Ri-Ri herself, but I imagine her response looks something like this.

Listen to Rihanna – head included – on this week’s Slacker Top 40!

How much would you love to dance with this man?? Me too. Party perfection.

If you’re willing to go across the pond, you can find him at The James Figg Pub In Thame. Just ask for Nathan Swift, he’s the Assistant Manager.

…and when you do? Tell him that chick who talked about him on Party Hits is jealous of that hose.


Taylor Swift Plays Wedding Singer Post-Break Up. Refrains From Awkward Rendition Of ‘Love Stinks’ ala Sandler.

Taylor’s break up with Calvin Harris didn’t stop her from celebrating the joy of another couple’s everlasting love and the backstory is equally as heart-warming.

According to MTV, the groom is the ‘Swiftie’ in this situation. Max Singer’s sister had reached out to Taylor, telling her how their mom passed away recently, how Max danced with his mom to “Blank Space” in her hospital room and asked if Taylor would come to the wedding.

Not only did Taylor perform…

She MADE them a handmade wedding card with ‘Blank Space’ lyrics and FRAMED it.
