On New Music: Azealia Banks, Ellie Goulding, MNDR

I'm going lie down now and imagine some lyrics for "Yankin' in Memphis". Also maybe a mash up of Lady and Bonnie Raitt "Something to Twerk About".

On Nelly Furtado, "Big Hoops (Bigger the Better)"

I HEAR THAT ROBYN. But, also, the rest of the song makes me think of Lumidee. So, that's happening this morning.

On The Best Time I Met Robyn

DO YOU KNOW WHAT IS HAPPENING, Jane? I am dying with jealousy (but also happy for you?). I went to her fall Chicago show last year and it was the best. A week before the show my hair lady decided she was tired of my highlights so she bleached the living daylights out of my hair (I let the woman do what she wants because it always seems to look good). So, completely unintentionally, I had Robyn's hair color and similar cut. Standing outside the Metro waiting for the show my friends overheard some dudes saying "OMG is that Robyn?!?". It made my night UNTIL THE SHOW STARTED--it was such a great show.

You guyss, I'm nervous because Bun B looks old in this video. He's almost 50.

On Girls on Tape

This is so good. This is the best example of all the nuances in teenagers' risk-taking behavior. She's also a fabulous young woman.

On We're Even Uglier Than We Thought

Oh, the face study can fuck off with that noise. The sample size for their studies was roughly 25 undergraduates attending Harvard and the University of Chicago. Call me when you can generalize to the rest of the world, social psychologists.

On "You're my Christmas wish. Meet me outside. -Justin Bieber"

Kick him to the curb, Rory Gilmore lookalike!

On Kelly Rowland's "Lay It on Me"

She routinely gets outdanced by her back-up dancers, which is fine because it looks like she's employing a good percentage of the members of the ball scene
