Latin Hottie Naya Rivera is Dying to be on the Radio

Naya Rivera RollingstoneGlee’s Naya Rivera is the hottest Latin girl, according to Rolling Stone, who put Naya on the flipside of November’s Lou Reed tribute issue.

Super bendy gumby woman from Glee tells RS that she hates going to sleep without her engagement ring from Big Sean (“My finger just feels naked”) and expresses her dreams of becoming a big hit on the radio once her debut album is released in 2014.

“Get on or get off. I think this is a summer song, and I want it on the radio by the end of the summer,” Rivera says of her label’s handling of the single  “Sorry” featuring Big Sean, which just got a lyric video.

Nothing against her voice or legs or anything (best character on Glee by far) but she seems like someone who will have a sex tape in about… oh, I dunno, three months? People that in love are always careless with their personal videos.

 

Janelle Monae Won’t Say If She’s Gay or Straight Because… Politics

I know the title made you think she was running for president, but college-radio favorite Janelle Monae says she doesn’t want to let anyone know her sexuality because she doesn’t want any specific gender or group to stop liking her. And she means it not in the “I hate you, I want to light you on fire and swing you from a noose” type of way, but in the “ohhhh baby I love your way,” way.

“I want everybody to focus on my music,” Monae told a Sirius radio host that isn’t Howard Stern and therefore doesn’t deserve to be named. “I also don’t want to let anybody down. I want women to still be attracted to me. Go get my album! I want men to still be attracted to me, so I have to be political in this. So I can’t really tell y’all!”

Interesting reasoning, but almost no straight person ever answers “are you gay?” with, “I refuse to answer because ______  <—- [insert random made-up reason here].”  Continue reading “Janelle Monae Won’t Say If She’s Gay or Straight Because… Politics”

Ke$ha Snubs ‘Die Young,’ Says She Was Forced (But Not At Gunpoint) To Sing The Lyrics

Ke$ha gunKe$ha once called her greasy sophomore album, Warrior, “really positive, really raw, really vulnerable and about the magic of life,” and said that she rewrote the lead single “ten times” before deciding on the current version.

Now she’s singing a different auto-tune, denouncing “Die Young” after hearing that it had been pulled from radio stations because the lyrics could be considered insensitive to the families of the 6 and 7 year-olds lost in Newtown, Connecticut.

“I understand. I had my very own issue with ‘die young’ for this reason, I did NOT want to sing those lyrics and I was FORCED TO,” Ke$ha tweetedContinue reading “Ke$ha Snubs ‘Die Young,’ Says She Was Forced (But Not At Gunpoint) To Sing The Lyrics”

Justin Bieber Cuts Radio Interview Short

Justin Bieber took offense when “Mojo” from the radio program Mojo In The Morning compared him to Justin Timberlake and joked about his mom and Harry Styles of One Direction. Here’s the Timberlake part:

DJ: “I hope you take this as a compliment because I really mean it as that, but when I first got played your song by some of your record people who said ‘Hey I want you to hear something,’ and this was months and months before it came out, they said ‘Take a listen to this and tell me if you can tell me who this is.’ I thought it was Justin Timberlake.”

Bieber: “Where, what one?”

DJ:When I heard ‘Boyfriend’ for the very first time, you know, like I said that it as a compliment ’cause I think Justin Timberlake is the man. But I thought it was Justin Timberlake’s single and then when they told me it was you and I was so excited for ya.”

Bieber: “Man, that’s crazy, because our voices sound nothing alike.”  Continue reading “Justin Bieber Cuts Radio Interview Short”

Cleveland DJ’s Advice – Screw Those Gays Straight!

GLAAD is asking that Clear Channel and Cleveland radio station WMMS suspend morning DJ Dominic Dieter for his ignorant comments. After reading an email from a listener who saw his teen daughter kissing another girl Dieter said,

“You should get one of your friends to screw your daughter straight.”

First of all, who listens to the radio anymore? It is literally the worst thing ever unless it’s Howard Stern or Aisha Tyler’s Girl On Guy, which doesn’t count because it’s a podcast.

He should probably be more than just suspended from 100.7 FM’s “Rover’s Morning Glory” show.  He told a father to get a friend to have sex with his daughter, with thousands of people listening?

Radio/TV Pioneer Dick Clark Suffers Heart Attack (November 30, 1929 – April 18, 2012)

 Richard “Dick” Wagstaff Clark, creator of the American Music Awards, host of American Bandstand, TV’s Bloopers & Practical Jokes and the game show Pyramid, died of a heart attack yesterday in Santa Monica at age 82.

The self-made millionaire also conducted beaming interviews for the Golden Globes, chatting up everyone from Mel Gibson and Martin Landau to Sharon Stone and Jessica Lange. To people my age he is recognized most for Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve which began in 1973 and was still running into 2012 with host Ryan Seacrest.

Following his massive stroke in 2004 which heavily impaired his speech, he sometimes still stood smiling like a 19-year old next to Seacrest truly embodying his “World’s Oldest Teenager” nickname.

Boy Bands Are Making A Comeback, Here’s Proof

There are currently not one but TWO UK boy bands with singles and albums climbing the chart ladders. The Wanted are one, with their massive hit “Glad You Came” (I can hear the immature laughter now, emitting from my apartment) which is number four on iTunes’ top songs.

The other band of grinning professionally-coiffed miscreants are One Direction aka 1D, which L.A. Times compares to The Jackson 5, ‘N Sync, NKOTB and the Osmonds. Jackon 5 comparisons seem like a reach and an insult to Michael, but that’s just me.

One Direction, who were put together by evil genius mastermind Simon Cowell in 2010 after every member appeared as a contestant on overseas X-Factor, are appearing on Saturday Night Live on April 7th with host Sofia Vergara.

Comedian Patrice O’Neal Dead At Age 41 (December 7, 1969 – November 28, 2011)

East coast original Patrice O’Neal, known for his stand-up, VH1 commentary (I love the 80s/70s) and most recently for his set at the Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen, passed away yesterday due to complications from a stroke he had on October 19.

The frequent Opie & Anthony radio guest who was a longtime diabetic, brought a lot of intelligence and thoughtfulness blanketed in brazen sarcasm to everyday culture, such as his hatred for certain tattoos. (“So what your third cousin got shot, so now I gotta look at his fuckin’ face?”)

Rush Limbaugh Compares Obama To An Oreo Cookie (Again)

Several weeks ago on his radio show, Rush Limbaugh (who constantly sounds like his own mouth is full of cookies) compared president Obama to the new “Triple Double” Oreo which holds within it both chocolate and vanilla filling.

This jolted, well prompted (since Rush Limbaugh takes forever to speak and move) him to mention that the new Oreo should be called an “orbameo” after president Obama,

“It isn’t gonna be long before it’s gonna be called the ‘Orbameo,’ well it’s a biracial cookie here.”

This is actually the second time Rush Limbaugh has called Obama an Oreo. Two years ago he made the same joke, it just wasn’t a Triple Double Oreo. Recycle material much?
