Maroon 5 had a somewhat sizable summer hit with “Maps,” and with that one now falling down the Billboard Hot 100, they’ve unleashed another track off upcoming LP V (out September 2) in the form of “Animals.” The song was co-written by M5 frontman Adam Levine along with frequent collaborators Benny Blanco and Shellback, and it finds Levine crooning over a repetitious guitar riff and hip hop beat, “Baby, I’m preying on you tonight, hunt you down, eat you alive / just like animals.”
So basically, more sexed-up innuendo from Adam & Co. Paw at the lyric video for “Animals” above. More »
According to sneak-peek video footage E! grabbed of the seating arrangements at this Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards, Miley Cyrus will be perched right between Nicki Minaj and Katy Perry. That should prove to be interesting for all involved, considering Nicki appeared to be irked when Miley co-opted her racy “Anaconda” single art earlier this month, slapped her own head on it (twice) and retitled it “Hannah Conda” — something that prompted Nicki to respond with, “Give me one good reason why Miley made this her twitter avi”.

Children, today we’re going to let The Weeknd show you about the birds and the bees. You see that video above? Well, when you watch it you’ll notice that sometimes the Daddy likes to go to book a hotel room and get high as fuck, because he thinks that’s what people want to watch for four minutes in lieu of a video that might actually be entertaining on some level. And then, the Daddy likes to rent a bunch of Mommys to come over to his room so he can get on top of them for 42 seconds before vomiting on the lamp and passing out.
Then all the Hooker Mommys put their fingers in the Daddy’s wallet while he’s sleeping to try to steal the cash he’s always bragging about having, but surprise — it’s flopsville! More »
Doesn’t it seem like Flo Rida chucks a song out every other week or so? No? Yes? Green? Chinchilla?
Anyway, here’s Flo Rida chucking out a new song called “GDFR” — it stands for “going down for real” — which features Sage The Gemini and the really classy line “girls getting wetter than Katrina.” Sorry, fellas, but it’s always going to be too soon the exploit a colossal tragedy for a lyric in your dumb-as-shit waste of three minutes passing itself off as music.
Anyway, Flo or whoever produced this racket left no kitchen sink out of the mix: We’ve got horns! We’ve got a trap beat! We’ve got one of these bozos singing just like that guy Wanz‘s “I’m gonna pop some tags” bit from Macklemore‘s “Thrift Shop” — practically note for note! How can you resist? Listen below! More »

Love sometimes really is like a sucker-punch to the dick, isn’t it? I mean, if we can’t believe in the holy union that is(/was?) Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon, then what in Mimi’s name is there left to place our hopes and dreams in?
Sigh. Love takes time. Vision of love. There can be miracles when you believe. We belong together. Bye bye. Don’t forget about us.
Mariah, 44, and Nick, 33, have reportedly been living apart for months now, according to People (“He’s been staying in hotels,” a source told the magazine. Depressing…). Cannon even confirmed the news to The Insider, notes ABC, with this statement: “There is trouble in paradise. We have been living in separate houses for a few months.” More »
