Did you hear?
:: Ke$ha unveiled the glitter-gel artwork for her third single, “Your Love Is My Drug,” which looks like she made it her summer camp arts-and-crafts class. [Just Jared]
:: Check out a preliminary list of the Best Songs of 2010 so far. How come “Pants on the Ground” isn’t on this list? [Spinner]
:: Still reeling from the Auto-Tuned-to-death “We Are The World” re-recording? It could be worse. Here’s 20 other horrible charity singles. [Stereogum]
:: Nicole Scherzinger denies that she is romantically involved with her Dancing With The Stars partner, Derek Hough. If she wants these rumors to stop, maybe she should reconsider her less-than-modest wardrobe. [Wonderwall]
:: Remember Coolio? Well, even if you don’t, the law does—the “Gangsta’s Paradise” rapper has been hit with a $10,000 bench warrant for failing to appear in court, stemming from an incident from March 2009 when crack cocaine was found in his luggage at LAX. [The BoomBox]
After the jump: whoa-oh, here he comes—it’s John Oates’ birthday. Music On TV Today: :: The Tonight Show with Jay Leno (NBC) – Corinne Bailey Rae :: Jimmy Kimmel Live (ABC) – Public Image Limited :: Last Call with Carson Daly (NBC) – Angels & Airwaves
VIDEO REWIND OF THE DAY: It’s John Oates 60th birthday today, and we’d like to take a moment to put the spotlight on the mustached musician. Although John has released solo material in recent years, he’s still best known as one half of the rock duo Hall & Oates, which has had a resurgence in pop-culture lately—their song “You Make My Dreams” was featured in a memorable dance sequence in last year’s 500 Days of Summer, and The Bird And The Bee released an entire tribute album covering of Hall & Oates’ biggest hits (we exclusively premiered the duo’s quirky take on “Kiss Is On My List” here on Idolator).
Our favorite music video in the Hall & Oates’ canon has to be their seductive clip for 1982’s “Maneater,” featuring one sweet saxophone solo… and a jaguar. Thankfully for Hall and Oates’ safety, the jungle cat was not literally a man eater on set.
