She’s Gonna Miss Him Like A Child Misses Her Blanket…

True Love: still dead.

One of the longest-lasting marriages in the music world, Fergie and Josh Duhamel, announced on Thursday that they’re separating.

Bummer, right? They married in January 2009, but they’ve been together since 2004, and have a 4-year-old son named Axl.

Just last year, Josh shared the secret to their marital success with Entertainment Tonight, saying “You know, we still really really like each other. That’s important.

But now it seems like maybe they like each other a little less.

The couple’s joint statement reads:

“With absolute love and respect we decided to separate as a couple earlier this year. To give our family the best opportunity to adjust, we wanted to keep this a private matter before sharing it with the public. We are and will always be united in our support of each other and our family.”

The good news? Fergie’s new album is probably full of awesome breakup tracks. Listen to her new songs on Slacker’s New Pop Now station!

Psst. Charli XCX, Work A Deal With Funko Pop! So We Can Collect All The Boys In “Boys”. Plz/Thx.

Charli XCX is back with a self-directed video starring a musical montage of males.

Did she turn the tables to objectify the guys or was she pointing out that women as viewers can be equally just as lecherous? Perhaps both.

The all star cast includes Khalid, Mark Ronson, Joey Bada$$, Brendan Urie, Diplo, Wiz Khalifa, Stormzy, Swet Shop Boys, Jack Antonoff, Ty Dolla $ign, Chromeo, Charlie Puth and I’ll let you figure out the other 50+ because that is half the fun.

More importantly, if she does work a deal with Funko Pop! so you can collect them all, do you take them out of the box??

I might.

Are you ready to head back to Hawkins, Indiana?? ME TOO.

The Netflix hit show debuted a new trailer at ComiCon to prepare you for season 2.

That’s when we will hop back on our bikes along with our favorite 12yr olds and battle whatever Hawkins Laboratory has up its lab coat sleeve.

Season 2 will premiere Oct. 27th. Until then, watch out for demogorgons living in your walls and listen to Parker’s Slacker 20: Stranger Things.

Ps – Come back Barb.

We did a thing… a Nashville thing.

We made a little change on the Slacker country side. Nothing huge, nothing that will really affect you at all, but just a little tidying up.

We changed the name of our New Country Now station to Nashville Now. And here’s why:

Until today, we had one station called New Country, and one station called New Country Now. They’re very different stations, but how could you know that? It’s so confusing.

New Country plays the latest songs from your favorite Country artists like Luke Bryan, Carrie Underwood, Kenny Chesney, Miranda Lambert, Jason Aldean, Eric Church, etc. That’s not going to change, and the name of that station makes perfect sense as it is.

Nashville Now plays the brand new releases from your favorite Country stars, but also new artists you’re maybe not so familiar with. Maybe they just got their first record deal. Maybe they don’t have a record deal at all yet, but an alert Slacker fan pointed us in their direction, and they’re awesome enough we think you should hear them, too. Maybe I wandered into a bar in Nashville and heard them playing and thought, “Man, Slacker listeners would dig this!” Chances are, it’s stuff you won’t hear anywhere else. This is what this station has always been, and now it has a new name to differentiate it from our New Country station. Get it?

So. Take your pick — listen to New Country here or Nashville Now here, or check out your My Favorites Mashup station for songs you’ve hit that heart button on and other stuff like it. It’s your radio world. We just live in it. 🙂

You’d never know the challenges these kids face in and out of school by their big smiles but that’s what happens when Rihanna walks in a room. She traveled to Malawi, one of Africa’s poorest countries, to learn about the hurdles these children face.

“Joined by Former Australian Prime Minister and Board Chair of the GPE Julia Gillard and Global Citizen CEO Hugh Evans. She is calling on fans from all across the globe to help by donating to the Global Partnership for Education’s efforts. The organization’s goal is to raise $3.1 billion to help bring quality education to over 870 million children in 89 countries between 2018 and 2020.”

Old age might be tolerable living in a nursing home with The Foo Fighters. Ps – I call being their bubble bath nurse.

Foo Fighters released their first song in a couple years and the video will assure you some things don’t change. You can always count on fun with Foo. No word on their ninth studio album, but I’ll keep you posted.

Disclaimer: People Magazine may be a pseudo tabloid but I gotta give credit where credit is due. I’m not sure you can get any better than “Heavy Metal Gandalf”

And I’m serious about the nurse offer. This could be you Dave.

Your Dance Moves Could Send a Shockwave Of Hope To Kids And Moms In Need SO BRING. IT.

“In February 2017, French Montana found the inspiration for his upcoming “Unforgettable” music video after watching a dance video of Uganda’s Triplets Ghetto Kids on Youtube. He flew to Uganda in March to feature the kids in the video.

As soon as he landed in Uganda, he visited the Suubi Health Center – a small rural health clinic – where he met the founders, spoke with the community and learned about their work and the challenges people face, especially new moms and babies. He was completely moved by their journey and has committed to helping them.

French Montana has pledged the first $100K to help pay for ambulances, premature incubators, cribs and a blood bank for the community of Suubi. Now he challenges you to step up too! Your funds will go toward the construction of a maternity clinic serving thousands of mothers and babies.”

Travis Scott Breaking A World Record With “Goosebumps”, Will Give You Goosebumps.

You’d think it’d be boring to go to a live show and watch someone perform the same song 14 times but you’d be wrong.

Travis broke the record for the most times a song has been performed by an artist in a single show, originally set in 2012 by JayZ/Kanye, when they performed “Ni**as In Paris” 12 times.

Just watch the crowd….
