No state searches for hipsters more than Minnesota. Our friends at BuzzFeed point out in the above map that the people in the Land of 10,000 Lakes search the word "hipster" more than anyone. Well played, Minnesotans. Way to perform a hipsterectomy on those poseurs in Williamsburg. Notice that Missouri is also in a darker shade of blue, even though the Show-Me State didn't crack the top 10.
Kansas City, sometimes you make me sad. This video is definitely NOT SAFE FOR WORK (you've been warned). The guy in the video pulled down his pants and then tried to crash the Foster the People show at RecordBar on March 31.
Apparently, the video was shot by We Barbarians. Even sadder than seeing this guy's crank was listening to him get racist. Hope he enjoyed getting rolled and arrested. May your weekend be better than this guy's.
As AV Club reports, a poll conducted by dating site Tastebuds.fm has recently proved that -- as we all have long suspected -- Coldplay fans are actually prudes. (So are fans of Adele, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Kings of Leon, the Strokes, and Radiohead. Or maybe they're just sensitive, ya know?) On the other hand, fans of bands that are more likely to raw-dog it with you on the first date, in order: Nirvana, Metallica, Linkin Park, Kanye West, Gorillaz, and Daft Punk. Bam.
But, this leaves another question to be answered: even if you had the chance to bang an unabashed Coldplay fan, would you? (Or would you worry that they'd start weeping?) What band's fans would you least like to get in the sack?
You know it's a nasty trend when Paris Hilton started it.
Then, there was Ali Lohan, Lindsay's little sister who stole the spotlight from the floundering star for a hot minute with her mom, Dina. The list goes on -- including a terrible cover of "Papa Don't Preach" from Kelly Osbourne -- but, by now, it's expected.
Reality stars delude themselves into believing they're musicially gifted; and, since they already enjoy making asses of themselves on television, why not the recording studio, too?
Here are four offerings from America's finest reality-TV stars who probably made more money that you did in a year.
Oh, man. Megan Phelps-Roper never seems to get tired of pop songs, does she?
The daughter of the Westboro Baptist Church's Fred Phelps is at it again -- but this time, she's impersonating Eminem, not Gaga. And she's got some kid on the church's compound doing a really, really awful impression of the duo's hit "Love the Way You Lie."
Ke$ha will give the girls at Bazooka's a run for their money on Sunday night at the Midland. According to Spin, here's what KC can expect from the pop tart's sold-out show:
The 23-year-old comic-provocateur-musician gave the tween-filled crowd wall-to-wall electro-dance jams, costume changes, fake blood, 8-foot penises, and two tons of glitter -- not to mention a generous amount of lovingly applied baby oil.
NBC New York reports on the thriving black market (read: Craigslist) for cans of Four Loko that predate the FDA's caffeine-additive ban. Leave it to an enterprising group of frat guys to profit from a market inefficiency created by the regulation of a company started by frat guys.
Sadly (thankfully?), the Four Loko black market in New York City is a lot more developed than it is here in Kansas City. A cursory search of local Craigslist pages (Kansas City, Lawrence, Wichita) turns up no cans for sale. But I might know a guy for the right price....
We thought you'd like to see Enrique Iglesias and lots of naked boobs, and hear an earworm that includes the phrase, Tonight I'm fucking you. (Actually, that's the refrain. And the title of the song.) After all, your 10 year-old daughter saw Iglesias at Mix 93.3's Jingle Jam at the Sprint Center about a month ago. Hopefully the pop star didn't break this one out of the old catalog.
1. You don't know everything.
Sorry. There is no way that you've listened to everything released within the calendar year of 2010. You might as well title your comprehensive, labor-intensive compiling of albums "my year in music," because, honestly, I'm pretty sure that you're just sorting your iTunes by most-played, and rating the band's entire album that way. Just sayin.'
