Nothing against our dudes Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth--even they might admit that "See You Again" has worn out its welcome. After spending 12 weeks at No. 1 on the Hot 100 chart, the Furious 7 tribute song lingers on as a GRAMMY nominee and Oscar hopeful. The popularity of the tune is also what stopped All Time Low from acquiring their first No. 1 album in the United States, so we're still bitter about that, too. It's been a long day, fellas; see you never.
Here's probably a not good thing to do: Describe Latinos as little more than blue-collar workers, insult blue-collar workers, stand by your comments and make more racist remarks. So goes the tale of Donald Trump, presidential hopeful. His new thing is wanting to ban Muslims from entering the United States to somehow deter terrorism. That, my friends, is what we call fascism.
By now you're probably acquainted with Martin Shkreli, dubbed Pharma Bro by the media. Homeboy jacked up the cost of crucial, groundbreaking AIDS medication from $13 to over $700. Gross, right? It's legal, disgusting and unethical. He also funded Collect Records, a small New York-based indie label run by Thursday frontman Geoff Rickly, without really explaining where the money came from. Operations were closed when the news broke and Shkreli has since lowered the price back down... but now he's the owner of the Wu-Tang Clan's $2 million album?? Go away, dude.
Is your name Harry Styles? It's not? Put your damn hair down. Bye.
Despite what a few mega-stars might believe, the future of the music industry is streaming, in some form or fashion. How frustrating is it pay for a Spotify subscription and not be able to hear the Adele album, or watch some low-quality version of the "Feeling Myself" video when you don't have a Tidal account? The answer is: impossibly frustrating!
Miley Cyrus is a progressive pop goddess. Bangerz was incredible, her vision is incredible, she is incredible. You know what's not forward-thinking or interesting? Teaming up with old white dudes with guitars making music for other old white dudes. No disrespect to the Flaming Lips, but Miley, it's time to create less psych-rock and more bangerz.
Here's a fact: If you're dead you can't really make calls about what happens to you. Because you're dead. I sincerely doubt there's a note in Tupac's will that's like, "If they ever invent holograms that can be designed in the likeness of iconic artists and have the capability to maneuver in realistic, human ways, PLEASE make one of me. Oh and take it to Coachella."
