Julianne Escobedo Shepherd compares the reaction of Americans to Rihanna’s video of her song Man Down, in which she is shown killing a man in cold blood (It’s revealed that the man in question sexually abused her) and Kanye West’s Monster, which features a bunch of women depicted as corpses.
I usually don’t listen much to pop music, but my wife really likes Kanye West. Yesterday, after having read a few reviews about his new album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, I started listening to it and I have to say that it’s a really good album. It’s basically been on repeat for the last 36 hours. When I’m not listening to it, I’m hearing in my head.
Kanye’s idiotic rant during the MTV VMA sparked a new meme, which has been thoughfully exposed by the Daily Mail. I knew about this, but don’t read the Daily Mail, my wife does.
Incredibly cool and funny video of the Running Man Dance. I watched it three times in a row non-stop. It’s the classic 90s song Something Good from the Utah Saints remixed by Van She. This video is actually the video clip of the newly released single. (via kottke)
