    Kanye West Addresses the Wheelchair Incident, and Matt Lauer

    Kanye West caught the media in a bit of an overreaction and yes, he might mean SPIN too. At his concert in Australia today, the "New Slaves" rapper used his nightly spoken-word segment during "Runaway" to address this weekend's coverage of the so-called "Wheelchairgate." When Ye tells his team to turn off the music and the autotune, you know he means business. Here's what he had to say, taking special preliminary aim at a certain Today Show host:I wanna start with Matt Lauer, because I heard the story's gonna hit the Today show tomorrow: so Matt, when this runs tomorrow morning, I want you to do me a favor. Don't try to force me into some fake apology like the last time I was on the show with you. What I want you to do, Matt, what I want you to do is I want you to run the video that everyone is talking about where I so-called screamed at somebody.

    Honor Freddie Mercury's Legacy by Drinking 'Killer Queen' Vodka

    Queen released their single "Killer Queen" 40 years ago. In 2014, the operatically inclined British rock legends will unleash Killer Queen upon the world once again, though this time in vodka form. What does a Queen-crafted vodka taste like, you might rightly ask?

    Snoop Dogg Instagrams Photo of Two Men in Bed, Tweets Homophobic Slur

    Snoop Dogg has joined the ranks of celebrities like Chris Brown and CeeLo Green — music-making men who should reconsider posting to social media late at night. Early this morning, the California rapper allegedly posted a snapshot to his Instagram of a male follower embracing another man in bed, with the caption "U n ya boyfriend since u like Jumpn on my page disrespectin bitch boy go suck ya man n get off my line f. A. G."Snoop (or a member of his team) deleted the post within a half hour, as well as the subsequent tweet that linked to the Instagram shot, but crafty Internet users screenshotted both (via Buzzfeed) before they could be permanently erased.

    Watch Bill Murray Turn Up to 'Turn Down for What' at a Normal Dude's Birthday Party

    It's a given formula: throw a party in South Carolina, Bill Murray's home state, bring a video camera, and the actor himself is sure to pop his head in for a visit. That's what happened at a birthday party for a Jedburg man named Marvin Reynolds that was catered by Brett McKee, who is incidentally friends with Murray and invited the actor to tag along. During the party, Murray celebrated his own birthday too, and got his dancing shoes on to bust a move to Lil Jon's "Turn Down For What," which is something none of us knew we needed to see until this very day. The footage of that is above. Revisit our interview with Lil Jon here. // Post by Brett Mckee.Here's Murray blowing out the candles on his own cake at the party. // Post by Brett Mckee.Oh, and he also played air guitar during a party version of Tommy Tutone's "867-5309." That's below. // Post by Brett Mckee.

    Robin Thicke Deposition Reveals Drug Use and 'Blurred' Lies

    The thing about depositions is that judges often decide to release the transcripts to the public. That's not to say we're suggesting that Robin Thicke should have lied in his recent deposition in the ongoing "'Blurred Lines' is maybe a Marvin Gaye ripoff" proceedings involving the singer and Gaye's children, but maybe he could've taken the Justin Bieber route and gone with a more evasive tactic.According to the Hollywood Reporter, who got their hands on a copy of Thicke's April 2014 deposition, the singer admitted some pretty heavy truths throughout the day, including his drug-hazed involvement — or lack thereof — in the creation of "Blurred Lines," his massive freaking hit. Here's what he had to say about how he and Pharrell actually collaborated on the song:To be honest, that's the only part where — I was high on vicodin and alcohol when I showed up at the studio.

    This Jennifer Hudson, Pharrell, and Iggy Azalea Track is Truly Awful Down to Its Core

    Although Pharrell has had an undeniably banner year, perhaps the singer and producer is spreading himself a little bit too thin. That would explain the trainwreck of a song that is Jennifer Hudson's new Pharrell-produced single, "He Ain't Goin' Nowhere," a strangely awful song with a guest verse from (possible sex tape star) Iggy Azalea that probably only made the final cut because of the names involved.Please note, nobody is saying that Hudson isn't a powerhouse vocalist. She is, but the song just doesn't suit her sound in any way. Pharrell's beats are meant to harken to the days of classic soul, but they seem more stale than retro. The song itself seems confused about what it wants to be: Is it pop? R&B? Rap?

    The Pixies Enlist Fans to Direct Dumpster-Diving 'Ring the Bell' Video

    In the new trash-diving video for the Pixies' Indie Cindy single "Ring the Bell," two women dig for nostalgic treasures before retreating to a woodsy rave filled with Bingo boards and disco balls. According to Radio.com, the video's stars had previously recorded a lip-dub of the Pixies' "Hey" back in 2005, which apparently stuck with the band long enough that the women — Lital Mizel and Adi Frimmerman — were invited to meet the Pixies at an Israel show several months ago. Mizel and Frimmerman were then offered the chance to direct the dumpster-chic "Bell" video, glowsticks, kazoos, and all. The band itself has gone through a swath of changes recently, but the Pixies plan to hit the road later this month with new touring bassist Paz Lenchantin following the departure of longtime member Kim Deal.

    The New Pornographers Part Ways With Drummer Kurt Dahle

    Something must be in the water that's causing band members to quit. Last month, Death Cab for Cutie co-founder Chris Walla announced that he'd be leaving the band after their Rifflandia Festival appearance this past Saturday night. Now the New Pornographers — whose new record, Brill Bruisers, was released in August — have announced that the band's drummer, Kurt Dahle, has departed the group for good after a 15-year run."Kurt Dahle is leaving the New Pornographers," the band wrote on Facebook over the weekend. "It has been a great 15 years playing with an amazing drummer, singer and performer.

    Watch the Replacements Serenade Minnesota With 'Unsatisfied'

    Now that the Replacements are back, it's impossible to imagine them ever having been gone at all. On Saturday night, the Minnesota band took the stage in St. Paul for their first headlining home-state show in 23 years, playing a nearly two-hour long set that included a total of 31 songs. The band closed the Midway Stadium show with "Unsatisfied," one of their most popular songs off their landmark third album, 1984's Let It Be. Earlier in the day, St. Paul's mayor declared it Replacements Day in the city, an honor we're sure not even lead singer Paul Westerberg could sneer at.The Replacements are currently in the middle of a festival run that's included stops at Coachella and Boston Calling. They also recently played The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, which marked the band's first appearance on NBC in nearly 30 years. Check out their St.
