Bobby Shmurda Responds To Haters With “Bobby Bitch”

Bobby Shmurda came out of nowhere over the summer and quickly climbed urban music charts with his hit track, “Hot Nigga.” The song rose to popularity so fast that labels and blogs alike quickly hopped on the young emcee’s bandwagon, but after months passed with no follow-up many began to wonder whether or not Bobby could repeat his flash in the pan success.

The jury may still be out on the longevity of Bobby Shmurda’s career, but today the New York native fired back at haters with a new track titled “Bobby Bitch.” The song borrows heavily from …


Today In WTF News: Watch ‘The Nest,’ A New NSFW Short Film By David Cronenberg

Director David Cronenberg, who we got to interview a week and a half ago (check that out here), has debuted his new short film The Nest on YouTube for all to see. This is a true joy in news today as this short film is about as close to another signature Cronenberg ‘body horror’ film like The Fly and Videodrome that we will get in the immediate future.

The Nest follows a patient (Orphan Black’s Evenlyne Brochu) as she is speaking to the surgeon that is tasked with removing her left breast. You would think that it would …

Film: Blended
Directed by: Frank Coraci
Starring: Adam Sandler, Drew Barrymore

I had hope walking into Blended. The reteaming of Adam Sandler, Drew Barrymore, and Frank Coraci (who also directed The Wedding Singer) gave me hope that we might see a return to form after so many failed Sandler outings. Unfortunately, not only did I not laugh heartily once during the film’s 117 minute running time but I cowered into my sweatshirt. I wanted this amalgam of Sandler film career references, off-colored jokes, muddled family messages, and misrepresentation of an entire country to end.

Here Is The Reason Why Everyone Is Suddenly Interested In Avril Lavigne Again

Avril Lavigne – aka Mrs. Chad Kroeger – has gone through many musical evolutions since the days when she hung out with Sk8r Bois at the local mall, but her latest transformation may baffle even longtime supporters (if those even exist at this point).

“Hello Kitty” is the latest single and video to be release from Lavigne as a means to promote her 2013 self-titled album. It’s a wildly chaotic clip, which finds Avril and a team of Japanese dancers attempting to spark viral video trendiness with over-the-top visuals, weird costumes, and all the bright colors you can possibly imagine. …


Watch Lady Gaga Willingly Let Someone Puke On Her Repeatedly While Singing “Swine” At SXSW Because Art and Stuff

The problem with extremely creative people finding large scale success early in their careers is that nine times out of ten they are unable to maintain that level of fame for very long. That thing called fame is a monster, you see, and recently it got the best of Lady Gaga.

Last night, Lady Gaga was brought on stage for her highly publicized SXSW appearance while strapped to a spit over an active grill. While leather-clad men spun the ARTPOP singer, she worked through her opening number as her dreads lapped the grill below and flames danced just a few …


Metallica Admit Respect For Justin Bieber

Okay, we all get it: most fans of traditional bands (you know, groups that have one or two guitarists, a bassist, drummer, and vocalist) will rail away at whichever pop artists are big at the time for a variety of reasons that are either rational or absurd. So it should go without saying that there is going to be a some sort of public outrage now that Metallica, one of the most respected bands in metal history, have collectively given Justin Bieber the nod in response to his praise of the band when he said that “One,” and “Fade …


Universal Begins Shutting Down Smiths/’Peanuts’ Mashup Tumblr

God save micro-blogging.

It’s Friday, and like you we really don’t want to be at work anymore. UTG is fun and all, but most of us work day jobs that put us in front of monitors full of numbers and reports we pretend to work on while secretly sneaking off to enjoy whatever nonsense the internet has recently brought to life. One hotbed for such content is Tumblr, and this morning we learned from our friends at Stereogum that one of our favorite blogs will soon be little more than digital dust.

This Charming Charlie rose to internet fame earlier …

Ten Former American Idol Contestants (Each) Suing For $25 Million

Wow. Things aren’t looking that great for the producers of American Idol.

According to TMZ, ten former African-American contestants have filed a lawsuit against the show. They claim they were unjustly released from the show because of their race. The kicker is that each contestant that filed is looking to gain $25 million for their troubles.


Metro Station Raise Less Than 1/5 Of Indiegogo Campaign Goal, Releasing EP in August

If you’re going to go out on a limb and ask people for money to support your dream, what do you do if they don’t respond the way you had hoped? If you’re Metro Station, the answer is simple: Release the album anyways.

You may remember a story earlier this year about Metro Station launching an Indiegogo campaign to fund the recording and release of a comeback EP. The group asked for $50,000, but when the campaign ended on May 14 they had only managed to raise $8,105. No press releases were sent out, no updates from the band …

John Eastman

Alleged Pedophile Arrested For Posing As One Direction Member Online

Take heed of this story, kids. Your favorite musician probably would never proposition you like this, and even if they did you should never play along. This is at least the third instance of this happening in recent years, and sadly it’s probably not the last.

John Eastman, a 45-year-old man from Connecticut, has been arrested for allegedly posing online as One Direction member Harry Styles to entice young girls into performing sex acts. An arrest warrant issued for Eastman claims he would use the username Harry.Styles888 on Skype along with a series of images he found online to prove …


HOLY SH!T: The Ataris Frontman Has A Meltdown In New Jersey, Throws Equipment At Drummer (Video)

This is a story that is both surprising and sad. As someone who owes a great deal of thanks to The Ataris’ for the impact of their material on their life, it sucks to now be writing about frontman Kris Roe coming unhinged in front of a New Jersey crowd over the weekend, but it happened (and we have the video).

“Your Boyfriend Sucks” is a longtime staple of The Ataris’ live show, and when the band began performing it last night in Asbury Park, New Jersey things seemed to be going fine. Then the set took a turn for …


EDITORIAL: “Resident Evil 5: What the Horror Flick’s Performance Tells Us About Industry Trends in 2012”

Sequel may be a dirty word among jaded moviegoers but it remains an exciting one for most of Hollywood. In troubling economic times, nothing excites studios more than consistent results, which explains why we’ve seen a slew of sequels across multiple series in recent years. Horror has largely dominated the realm – Saw and Final Destination immediately come to mind – but even more action-packed franchises like The Fast and the Furious have jumped on the bandwagon. This weekend’s top box office performer, Resident Evil: Retribution, offers another example. The fifth movie in the zombie action series based on …
