DonutGate: Uncle Sam Just Deleted His Ariana Grande Playlist.

Dude, Ariana…So not only were you caught on camera at a donut shop saying how much you “hate America,” but you were licking random donuts that people were going to eat?! I’m no germaphobe, but that is gnarly.

I get that you were coerced by a cute boy (I was insecure in my early 20s too),  I appreciated your apology (posted below) and I believe your words were taken out of context. America has a weight problem! I saw that South Park episode and I bet there are plenty of Americans who now wish they could take back all the hours they watched Victorious just to run around the block instead of contributing to your budding stardom.

You would be nothing without American Donut-lovers. 

Yes I recognize the irony in that there are creeps out there that would pay THOUSANDS for a donut licked by you but payback is a bitch honey…you may not eat much but there’s a good chance what you do eat could be licked! Especially if you continue to be as rude as you were to the cashier at Wolfee Donuts :/

Good lick sister.

“I am EXTREMELY proud to be an American and I’ve always made it clear that I love my country. What I said in a private moment with my friend, who was buying the donuts, was taken out of context and I am sorry for not using more discretion with my choice of words. As an advocate for healthy eating, food is very important to me and I sometimes get upset by how freely we as Americans eat and consume things without giving any thought to the consequences that it has on our health and society as a whole. The fact that the United States has one of the highest child obesity rates in the world frustrates me. We need to do more to educate ourselves and our children about the dangers of overeating and the poison that we put into our bodies. We need to demand more from our food industry. However I should have known better in how I expressed myself; and with my new responsibility to others as a public figure I will strive to be better. As for why I cannot be at the MLB show, I have had emergency oral surgery and due to recovery I cannot attend the show. I hope to make it up to all those fans soon. That being said let me once again apologize if I have offended anyone with my poor choice of words.” – Ariana Grande

Bruno Mars wasn’t the only one crushing at The White House!

Bruno headlined the 4th of July show on The South Lawn for military families singing his songs as well as covers like Michael Jackson’s Rock With You, Montell Jordan’s This Is How We Do It and Led Zeppelin’s Whole Lotta Love…and by the looks of the pic above, there was a whole LOTTA love.

Who could blame her? Betcha Barack and Congress would okay that.

All up in the yard like Nae Nae

If there was a moment when you thought about giving away your tickets to The Foo Fighters 4th of July show at RFK, I get it. Your friends probably told you security was going to make the trip hell and the weather was pretty crappy…but you decided to persevere…for Dave…FOR THE FOO!

If he could show up with a broken leg, the least you could do was show up to rock with him…and weren’t you glad you did?

break a leg


It was a seamless day of incredible acts. Joan Jett, Trombone Shorty, Gary Clark Jr, Heart, LL Cool J, (Yes he did I Need Love), Buddy Guy and Trouble Funk! We even got a crash course on The Foo Docu-Series Sonic Highways

Then the curtain fell and out comes D on a THRONE-MOBILE.

Which was completely appropriate. He has most certainly earned it.

Ps – I don’t like crowd participation, obligatory clapping, etc. Makes me anxious. Yet Saturday night, I participated like an overzealous TGIF Teamleader. I clapped too long, smiled TOO big and I’m so glad I did.

Gotta Have More Cowbell:

More Cowbell

Why on earth would Slacker build a station devoted to songs that feature a cowbell? A better question would be…why wouldn’t Slacker build a station devoted to songs that feature a cowbell?

The cowbell: an idiophone hand percussion instrument used in various styles of music, from salsa to hip hop. Named after the bells historically used by herdsmen to keep track of their livestock. Fancied by the likes of Van Halen, the Beatles, ABBA, Eminem and (most famously) Blue Oyster Cult.

It was the latter band that was featured in a classic Saturday Night Sketch in which a fictional percussionist named Gene Frankel (portrayed by Will Ferrell) is prompted by a fictional producer Bruce Dickinson (portrayed by Christopher Walked) to play “more cowbell.” Those words immediately became a catchphrase…and why would a reference to “more cowbell” become a catchphrase?

Good grief, why wouldn’t it? (Have you learned nothing from our first paragraph?)

Which brings us to the now. Music and pop culture critics Rob Tannenbaum (Rolling Stone, Playboy) and Craig Marks (Spin, Billboard) are regular contributors to Slacker and, while they were recently creating a station called 66 Pretty Much Perfect Songs, they noticed how many landmark tunes incorporated a cowbell. “What if,” they laughed, “We created a countdown of the greatest cowboy songs of all time?”

Ha, ha, ha. This is exactly what we’ve created. Need More Cowbell: The Countdown has arrived.

It’s filled with incredible songs, as well as a plethora of trivia about the cowbell. For example:

  • 1904 was a breakthrough year for cowbells, marking their first appearance in music history, thanks to Austrian late-Romantic composer Gustav Mahler.
  • Blue Oyster Cult’s “Don’t Fear the Reaper” was originally recorded without a cowbell…it was overdubbed later.
  • On “99 Problems,” Jay-Z sampled the cowbell from Wilson Pickett’s “Get me Back on Time Engine #9.”
  • Our curators have decided that the saddest cowbell song of all time is “Gold Dust Woman” by Fleetwood Mac.
  • When the Beastie Boys released the single “Hey Ladies” in 1989, they sent out promotional cowbells to music writers and radio DJ’s.
  • When the Rolling Stones go on tour, they have a sample of the original cowbell from “Honky Tonk Woman” programmed into their keyboards.
  • The first cowbell song to appear on MTV was “Working for the Weekend” by Loverboy.
  • The most ironic cowbell appearance was on “Little Sister” by Queens of the Stoneage. When they performed it on SNL, Will Farrell came out on stage as the fictional member of Blue Oyster Cult, Gene Frankel, and he played the cowbell wearing his flared jeans.
  • Rob Tannenbaum has a cowbell app on his phone, which is awesome and annoying in equal measures.

And, right about now, we know exactly how you feel. You need more cowbell. You gotta have it. You have the fever…and the only prescription is Need More Cowbell: The Countdown on Slacker Radio.

You’re welcome.
