  • She & Him,

    Watch She & Him's Zooey Deschanel-Directed 'I Could've Been Your Girl' Video

    Move over, "Giorgio by Moroder," and make way for Zooey by Deschanel. The She & Him singer-songwriter and star of TV's The New Girl self-directed the video for "I Could've Been Your Girl," from her M. Ward-bolstered band's new album Volume 3. The music is a swaying, polished update on '60s girl-group sounds by way of '00s indie pop — if you like this, also check out Lucky Soul, the Pipettes, or Belle and Sebastian leader Stuart Murdoch's God Help the Girl project — and the fairly charming video lets this former theater major showcase her love of classic Broadway dance routines. It's musical time travel, Hello Giggles-style, and if you've read this far that probably means it's your style, too.

    Eminem to Fake Slim Shady Mark Zuckerberg: 'Please Lawyer Up'

    After the movie The Social Network and extensive profiles in magazines like the New Yorker, you might've thought you knew all there was to know about Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg. Last month, though, tech blogs such as Gizmodo reported the discovery of what appeared to be a teenage Zuckerberg's 1999 website. Here's how the "About Me" page starts: "Hi, my name is... Slim Shady. No, really, my name is Slim Shady."Zuckerberg's youthful Eminem stan-dom has now come back as evidence in a copyright-infringement lawsuit filed against Facebook by the real Slim Shady's music publisher, Eight Mile Style. As posted by the Hollywood Reporter, the lawsuit claims a Facebook ad wrongfully used music "substantially similar" to the track "Under the Influence," off of hugely successful 2000 album The Marshall Mathers LP.

    Watch the Baptist Generals' Touching 'Dog That Bit You' Video

    The Baptist Generals' first album since 2003's deeply affecting, folk- and country-kissed indie-rock sleeper No Silver/No Gold is out today. "Dog That Bit You," a searing, word-wise strummer from brand-new Sub Pop release Jackleg Devotional to the Heart now has a video that suits its off-kilter pathos. Directed by band member Jason Reimer, the clip shows a day in the life of a lonely misfit who happens to have an animal's face. "This one's written like a comedy," songwriter Chris Flemmons sings. As fans of tourmates the Mountain Goats might attest, it's the hint of underlying tragedy here that gives the comedy heft. This dog bites hard.

  • Beyonce,

    Hear Beyonce's Allegedly Full, Thrilling 'Grown Woman' Leak

    "The news is worse than blogs," Hot 97 quoted Jay-Z as saying yesterday, but he's misunderstanding that when scoop-starved reporters can't get information from official sources — say, him or his wife Beyoncé — then the news has always turned to less-reliable third parties. "People with knowledge of the situation." "Sources familiar with the matter." Beyoncé's Timbaland-produced "Grown Woman," co-written by the-Dream, has been floating around since a snippet premiered in a Pepsi ad, and she has performed it live. A purportedly full, leaked version surfaced online last night, and the SoundCloud has already been taken down; the Internet being what it is, a copy is on YouTube for now.

    Jay-Z Denies Beyonce Pregnancy: 'The News Is Worse Than Blogs'

    Babyoncé confusion reigns! On Friday, E! News reported that Beyoncé and Jay-Z were expecting their second child citing multiple trustworthy sources. The report appeared to confirm rumors that had been building in the less-confirmation-dependent zone of the Internet ever since Queen B wore a dress cinched high above her waist at a New York gala earlier this month. The speculation accelerated when Mrs. Knowles-Carter canceled a May 14 show in Belgium citing dehydration and exhaustion. The only problem: According to Hot 97, Jay-Z has denied reports that he and Beyoncé are expecting a second child. The New York radio station reported this morning that Jay, responding to a congratulatory e-mail, wrote back: "It's not true.

  • The Lonely Island,

    The Lonely Island Make It Rain 'Diaper Money' in 'Wack' Video

    If you don't listen to much rap music and think most of it consists of self-serious boasting about wealth, and if you think the old-fashioned image of married women as frigid and sexless is inherently funny, then the Lonely Island's new video must be hilarious. "Diaper Money," the latest track from star-studded June 11 record The Wack Album, proclaims that it's on some "grown-ass man shit." But from our observations, grown-ass men tend to have it pretty good, relatively speaking, and the best rap songs boasting about wealth are actually a lot funnier than this (see Tyga's "Rack City," which contains the line, "Got your grandma on my dick").The video is a literal take on the song's lyrics about diapers, "wife pussy," and grave plots.

  • 'The Voice,' Blake Shelton, Adam Levine, Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo

    Cee Lo and Christina Aguilera Are Officially Returning to 'The Voice'

    Last week we heard it from Carson Daly's inexplicably valuable mouth, and now comes word from within 30 Rock itself: Christina Aguilera is coming back to NBC's The Voice. But that's not all. Cee Lo will be back, too, reuniting with Blake Shelton and Adam Levine to restore the show's original coaching lineup, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Daly will stay on as host.Aguilera and Cee Lo will return for the show's fifth season, or "cycle" in NBC executive-speak, reflecting that TV shows' seasons aren't as long as they once were. Aguilera's replacement, Shakira, and Cee Lo's successor, Usher, won't stay gone for long, though. They'll be back for the show's sixth cycle, which will start after the network's coverage of the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochia, Russia.The Voice's current season ends June 18.

    Miguel Lets His Crotch 'Adorn' a Woman's Face at Billboard Music Awards

While singing hit song "Adorn," Miguel tried to jump to a different onstage platform and wound up accidentally crashing crotch-first on a female audience member's head, his knees pressing her down onto the flooring. It looked like this:According to the Hollywood Reporter, others in the crowd nearby were shocked and dismayed, but Miguel soon brought the woman out for a live-stream interview and she appeared to be fine.
