Prince Was An Eccentric Pain In The Ass & These Hilarious Legends Made Us Love Him For It Even More.

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.

Willie Nelson/Lots Of Weed Saved Lil Wayne From An Award Show Disaster.

Source: Rollingstone

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.

That being said let’s listen to Lil Wayne and dream about the possibilities

Waffle House Jukebox Finally Recognized As Music Award Equal Thanks To Stephen Colbert & Sturgill Simpson.

If you’re an up and coming artist, the Stephen Colbert/Sturgill Simpson collab “No Shirt, No Shoes, No Knuckleheads” will make you reevaluate any/all priorities.

Sure you can win a Grammy or a Moonman, but is your song good enough for a Waffle House jukebox?

Btw if you’re down with alt country, I highly recommend Sturgill Simpson’s new album, A Sailor’s Guide to Earth.

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.

“Call To Arms” is an instant fav! Dare you not to…

Coachella #FOMO?

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.

Next up, Rihanna reunites with Calvin Harris.


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.

How about when Halsey brought out Brandon Urie from Panic At The Disco? Pretty amazing.

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?)

“NOW PUT YOUR HANDS TOGETHER FOR…..CAMEOCHELLA!”

If you aren’t at Coachella either, it appears we are missing a continuation of Taylor Swift’s 1989 tour the euphoria of realizing the artist you are “WOOO”ing for is going to bring out a massive surprise guest only to make you WOOO even louder!

You are also missing fashion styles from a bag of clothes you donated to Goodwill sometime between 2001-05.

NWA/SNOOP.

KESHA/ZEDD.

CALVIN HARRIS/RIHANNA.

ASAP ROCKY/KANYE WEST. Who learned a very valuable lesson on why you can’t be late for your set.

As you may have heard on Music News, just because we’re not at Coachella doesn’t mean we can’t play along!

How to play “Cameochella”:

  • Shout “NOW PUT YOUR HANDS TOGETHER FOR….”
  • Spontaneously play an artist of your choice preferably at inopportune moments ie: business meeting, study group, wake, quiet carpool, etc.
  • Bonus points for jumping on someone’s shoulders and or pretending to crowdsurf.

Ps – This game is trademarked by me so don’t even think about it.

Is Bieber The Next Liberace?

Justin Bieber tried to subtly show off his skill on the keys with a couple of Instagram posts this week. Do you recognize the song?


A video posted by Justin Bieber (@justinbieber) on

Right, Hotline Bling, pretty easy. But can you identify this one?


A video posted by Justin Bieber (@justinbieber) on

A liiiiiiiittle bit harder. It’s Rihanna, Work! And whether he posted these clips to show off or not, you’ve got to admit, The Biebs has talent on the keys.

But just in case schadenfreude is more your speed, you can also watch this clip of JB slipping and falling onstage last week.


here is a closer look ❤️

A video posted by JUSTIN BIEBER FANPAGE (@boysizzler) on

Not sure what he expected, performing on that wet stage, but they’d better get some yellow cones up around that mess STAT. (BTW, you can watch this fall over and over, from 4 different angles, here.)

Check out all the Justin we can give you, by law – plus more of your favourites – now on Today’s Hits!

Aziz Ansari Films Video For Kanye West, Proves Money/Fame Can’t Buy Coordination.

This might be the one music video that you can watch and whole-heartedly say, “I dance better than that” and while Aziz’s’s’s Master of None co-host Eric Wareheim is great with his endearing first grade tap dance choreography, doesn’t this kinda make you miss Tom and Jean-Ralphio?
