    Josh Homme, Like All Good Dads, Teases His Kid About Listening to One Direction

    We think Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme is funny, even his daughter might not. Whether he's joining Portlandia as Carrie Brownstein's sloppy gay brother, beating the snot out of stage crashers, or dropping F-bombs on Imagine Dragons, we get a kick out of this Desert Rock god. But one can only imagine his tiny offspring's massive eye roll in response to his thoughts on One Direction.In a scenario Homme recalled to Zane Lowe on his MTV UK program, the Soundchain DJ/host mentioned he refuses "to be a musical snob at this point with my kids ... If they wanna listen to One Direction, go for it man." I response, Homme quipped, "Yeah I mean that's not necessarily my direction.""I try to shy away from [One Direction] because I have to drive the car," the QOTSA boss continued, as Consequence of Sound reports. And when his daughter argues with him?

  • Paul McCartney Help Meat Free Mondays Pledge Video

    Paul McCartney Wants You to Skip Meat on Mondays

    Sir Paul McCartney's looking for help making a statement to the world's leaders. The once-Beatle, sometimes Kurt Cobain stand-in posted a video Thursday asking fans to take the "Meat Free Monday Climate Pledge," in which one commits to a weekly meat-free day as a statement of support to progressively addressing environmental issues.The Meat Free Monday campaign was launched earlier this month by the McCartneys and Rt Hon Gregory Barker MP, Climate Advisor to David Cameron, and arrives ahead of the September 23 start of the United Nations Climate Summit in Copenhagen. The hope is that the international leaders will commit, at the summit, to agree on an ambitious climate treaty at next year's COP 21 Conference in Paris with the subject of meat reduction on the agenda.McCartney's video is pretty low on information or facts.

  • Iran Happy Dancers Sentence Suspended Prison 91 Lashes

    'Happy' Iranians Sentenced to Prison and Lashings for Viral Video

    The group of six young Iranians who were arrested in May for making a viral dance video set to Pharrell's "Happy" have learned their punishment. On Wednesday, five of them were sentenced to six months in prison and 91 lashes each. The sixth, presumably the director, received one year in prison and the same number of lashes, as the local independent English-language site Iran Wire reports (via Mashable).There is, however, a small silver lining: their sentences have been "suspended" for three years, meaning they will not actually have to receive said punishments unless they are found guilty of a similar offense during that time. After 36 months, their free to be happy again.

  • Rick Ross Forbes Hip Hop Cash Kings List

    Rick Ross Should Top Forbes' Hip Hop Cash Kings, Says Rick Ross

    We all have our ups and downs, and that goes for Rick Ross too. In the past year, we've seen the rap Mastermind top the Billboard 200, get arrested for skipping a court date, celebrate the success of his Wingstop restaurant franchises, lose his Reebok sponsorship, and try kale for the first time. So maybe that's breaking even.But the Bawse is more of a "go for broke" kind of guy when it comes to not being broke. According to Ross' recent claims to Forbes, via AllHipHop.com, it's been an exceptional year and his baller status should be represented as such in the publication's annual Hip Hop Cash Kings List. He should be in the top five... just because."I'm always top five. That's in my mind," Ross says in the above video. We're kinda sad that he's not a definitive No. 1 by his own regard.

  • Top 100 Musicians Golf King Buzzo

    King Buzzo Is a Better Golfer Than Justin Bieber, but Just Barely

    Earlier this summer we laughed our asses off at a bunch of professional golfers who couldn't name all four Beatles (one even thought George Lucas might have been in the band). But a new Golf Digest list compiles a whole bunch club-swingers who doubtlessly know the difference between Georges Harrison and Lucas, even if they aren't up to pro-level snuff. Feast your eyes upon music's top 100 golfers, that rare list in which Avicii places last.Country singer Vince Gill touts a +0.3 handicap, leading the pack as the only one to score above the scratch mark at zero.

  • Miley Cyrus Mexico Flag Fine Twerking

    Miley Cyrus Could Be Fined for Getting Spanked With the Mexican Flag

    Miley Cyrus' outrageous arty pop-star antics are not going over well beyond this nation's borders. First she was banned from bringing her Bangerz tour to the Dominican Republic for "acts that go against morals and customs, which are punishable by Dominican law," and now a Mexican lawmaker wants to fine her for disrespecting the country's flag.Nuevo León state legislator Francisco Trevino has asked the Mexican federal government to fine Cyrus after one of her dancers spanked the singer's twerking booty with a his nation's banner during an Independence Day performance in Monterrey, reports The Guardian.Trevino said his state has already approved a warrant for the interior ministry to enforce the law on use of the flag and, if approved, Miley or her team could face a fine of about about $1,200 or 36 hours of detainment. Something tells us she'd go with the fine.And in reading the U.K.

    There's been word that Kendrick Lamar's good kid, m.A.A.d city follow up is coming sometime this year.

  • Run the Jewels Meow El-P Killer Mike Kickstarter Cats

    Run the Jewels Agree to Make an Album Out of Cat Noises and Donate the Money

    Run the Jewels have teasing us with streams of "Oh My Darling Don't Cry" and "Blockbuster Night Part 1," but Killer Mike and El-P are thining outside of the tracklist to promote their new album, Run the Jewels 2. Earlier this week, fans flooded their pre-order where they were offered purchasing packages that ranged from standard downloads or CDs, to deluxe 4LP vinyl, to $7,500 for backstage access. Thankfully, no one paid $10 million for the duo to retire outright.Within that broad spectrum was the option for the $40,000 "Meow the Jewels" package, which would have the fellas remake the whole album using nothing but cat sounds.

The Atlanta MC announced he was hiring for the position, which pays $50,000 a year, via Instagram Monday, saying he needs it ASAP. Since then, his social sites have been blowing up with "applications" tagged, as he requested, #icanroll.
