The Morning Mix: Taylor Swift Not Yet Done Being Lauded With Awards
Did You Hear?
:: Vulture gives a rundown of the most prominent rappers to tackle Hollywood, and see who has become more of an actor/rapper than a rapper/actor (though we think they unjustifiably leave off Kid Cudi, who is enjoying success on both platforms right now). [Vulture]
:: Want to know what Auto-Tuned cats sound like? Unsurprisingly, very much like Ke$ha. [Best Week Ever]
:: R&B artist Charles Hamilton wrote a 1000-word letter to Eminem, very much in the same vein as the obsessive-turned-suicidal fan in Em’s “Stan.” So basically, we should check Hamilton’s trunk right about now. [The Boombox]
:: Pete Wentz may not be joining heavy metal supergroups or readying a solo album like his former Fall Out Boy bandmates, but he’s keeping busy—the bassist, fashion designer, producer, husband, father and mini-mogul has added another job to his resume: director. Wentz helmed the music video for Train’s “If It’s Love” video, which you can check out here. [MTV Buzzworthy]
