Iggy Azalea Would Appreciate It If You Resisted The Urge To Sexually Assault Her

“…I still have to have barriers even if it’s like 200 people because people try to finger me.”

Australian rapper Iggy Azalea released her new album yesterday, and during her morning press blitz she stopped by Hot97 studios in New York City for a quick promotional chat. It was the kind of typical radio PR stunt setup you would expect from an artist with major label backing, but things quickly became unique when Iggy dropped a bomb regarding the way certain fans treat her at shows.

“I had to stop [crowdsurfing]…” Azalea said. “I’m only doing like 2000-seaters, but I …

Art is a hard thing to define. Sure, the first thing that comes to mind is paintings and sculptures, but music and film are also forms of art. The funny thing about art is that it is subjective. Some people will look at a painting by the masters …

‘Better Living Through Chemistry’ Trailer: Because Everyone Wants To Go On A Crime Spree With Olivia Wilde

Here’s a setup you have probably heard before:

Man who has the ability to help everyone cannot seem to help himself and falls head-over-heels for a woman far out of his league who teaches him a thing or two about living in the moment. Hijinks ensue, and before either one knows what is going on the pair find themselves in over their head.

This plot has been brought to the big and small screen countless times over the last century, and it’s not hard to understand why. Many of us go through our everyday lives feeling like we have the …


Lorde Does Not Like To Be Called A ‘Teen Hottie’

New Zealand pop princess Lorde has been featured in every pop culture zine and print publication worldwide in recent months, and along the way a lot of adjectives have been used to describe and otherwise sell her image. This is common for every celebrity of course, especially one still in their teens (such as Lorde), but in a recent interview with the New York Times the “Royals” singer opened up about the descriptions that bother her the most.

Speaking about her image and the way she is portrayed in the media, Lorde revealed to The NYT “The phrase …


Newest ‘Nymphomaniac’ Clip Shows Non-Sexual Side Of Film

Lars von Trier’s newest film, Nymphomaniac, has garnered much attention surrounding its explicit sex scenes, and highly graphic imagery. While that notion of attention grabbing has sustained the film’s marketing for the most part, we are now treated to the darker, more human side of the film.

Presented in a clip from “Chapter 7: The Mirror,” we see main character Joe, played by Charlotte Gainsbourg, attempting to rid her apartment of her sexual tendencies. We have seen the nature of her nymphomania before, though we now see the consequences of such actions.

You can watch the new clip here

The upcoming, two part film, written and directed by Lars von Trier, Nymphomaniac, now has fourteen character posters to showcase.

Nymphomaniac is the story of Joe, played by Charlotte Gainsbourg, who is found in an alley by a stranger, played by Stellan Skarsgård, after apparently being beaten. Taken back to Skarsgård’s character’s apartment, Joe, the titular nymphomaniac reveals her life story.

Enjoy the posters, for they are …


Rest In Peace: Lostprophets

This is one headline I have been waiting all 2013 to write. Not because I hate the band, but because moving forward as they have in recent months would be the worst possible decision a band could make.

Following a year that has found them tied to the alleged pedophilia their vocalist engaged in with multiple minors, rock outfit Lostprophets have announced they are officially calling it quits. The band has not specifically mentioned the drama surrounding Ian Watkins, but one look at their farewell note to fans and the underlying cause to this disbanding quickly becomes clear. Their message …

The Weeknd Kiss Land Review

The Weeknd Giving Away ‘Kiss Land’ Condoms On Upcoming Tour

Someone working sponsorships and marketing at ONE Condoms deserves a raise for the following story. If that’s you, please know we think you’re one smart cookie.

In a move that can only be described as fitting, Canadian crooner The Weeknd has joined forces with ONE Condoms for a partnership unlike any that currently exists in the urban music landscape. Together, the two entities will design and distribute condoms themed after The Weeknd’s new album, Kiss Land, which will be available at various dates on the singer’s upcoming fall tour.

Machine Gun Kelly Receives Oral Sex On Stage In Texas, Footage Available

Ohio-bred rapper Machine Gun Kelly has tried extremely hard to build a reputation for being one of the wildest emcees in music today, and over the weekend he took those efforts to new heights when he received oral sex in the middle of a performance in Dallas, Texas.

Yes, you read that previous sentence right. Machine Gun Kelly was given a blowjob in front of a room full of people who had paid to see him perform, and you better believe people captured it on camera. We’re not exactly sure what events preceded the encounter, but it’s evident from the …


MUSIC VIDEO: The 1975 – “Sex”

With new tracking comes new visuals for The 1975‘s “Sex.”

In October, after signing to Vagrant records, the band released this video for the single. Since that time, they have released a new (less ambient) version of the song. There is now a new music video to accompany it.

Featuring a young couple, drugs, and sex, the video takes you on a narcotic-laced trip through streets, stores, and bedrooms. Oh, and a forewarning to those fans used to the band’s signature grayscale, there is color in this one. Plenty of it.
