:: Lupe Fiasco has marvelous timing! The Chicago MC decided to perform a 30-minute anti-war song on Sunday (January 20), during which he announced that he did not vote for President Barack Obama. (Watch above.) The event? StartUp RockOn, and inaugural concert celebrating Obama’s second term in office. The gig’s founders eventually decided to “move on to the next act.” [The Huffington Post]

:: One week and 28 plays later (cue zombie apocalypse), Justin Timberlake‘s new single “Suit & Tie” has gone from sounding “rubbish” to “joyless.” [PopJustice]

:: Pussy Riot — A Punk Prayer, a documentary about the Russian band Pussy Riot directed by Mike Lerner and Maxim Pozdorovkin, debuted at the Sundance film fest on Friday to a sold-out crowd. HBO has since acquired the rights for US television. [Deadline Hollywood]

:: Saucy rapstress Nicki Minaj has been showered with bottles of A.1. after making it be known — via a request at posh Los Angeles eatery Boa — that she has a penchant for the steak condiment. Fascinating! [VIBE]
