Music festivals have become extremely popular over the past few years, with them ranging electronic, to hip hop, but there are also quite a few eclectic festivals who put together artist from all genres and that’s exactly what Bonnaroo does every year with their lineup and 2014 is no different. With big names from all genres from; Kanye West to Elton John to Skrillex and everyone in between will hit the stage!
Looks like Pharrell is going to strike while the iron is hot, as they say, after having arguably the two biggest singles of 2013; “Blurred Lines” and “Get Lucky.” Skateboard P followed that with big Grammy wins including Producer of the Year (Non Classical), and a Best Original Song Academy Award nomination for “Happy.” Now Pharrell is using all this momentum to release his first solo album since his 2004 In My Mind, with G I R L and it’s coming sooner than you think!
A 26 year old British woman, Torz Reynolds, is our Jeanius of the Week, as she sent a “special” Valentine’s Day gift to her cheating ex-boyfriend, a tattoo that she removed herself with a scalpel.
Looks like these remixes to Beyonce and Jay Z‘s “Drunk in Love,” remixes are coming from everywhere this weekend. It all started when Detail, who helped write and produce the song offered his remix on Thursday, followed by super producer D!plo, and my man Kanye West put his touch on it Friday. Now it’s The Weeknd‘s turn to put his touch on the track.
I’m going to assume that Sway still doesn’t have the answers? Last night at Penn State Kanye West re-started ‘The Yeezus Tour,’ and went on his first rant of 2014, this one was aimed at at Radio Personalities Charlamagne tha God & Sirius/XM Shade 45′s Sway, who was famously told by Yeezy that he ‘didn’t have the answers.’
We’re a few weeks removed from Macklemore & Ryan Lewis‘ not so surprising GRAMMY win over; Kendrick Lamar, Drake, Kanye West, and Jay Z, and it looks like Drizzy has decided not to take the politically correct way out of being asked about not winning the GRAMMY for Best Rap Album, or Song, or Performance.
In case you missed the big announcement, 101.1 WJRR has announced the lineup for their annual ‘Earthday Birthday’ concert series. This year’s concert will mark the first time in recent memory that the event will not be held at Tinker Field in downtown Orlando.
Oklahoma State guard and expected first-round NBA Draft pick, Marcus Smart, might have caused his draft stock to plummet tonight, when he shoved a fan during Oklahoma State’s 65-61 loss to Texas Tech.
I really want to know what that fan said to Marcus Smart.

Born Jillian Banks, the 25 year old, L.A. based singer and songwriter describes her music as “the color of midnight and honest”. Her music is a mix of dark R&B and electronic indie-pop, similar to artist, The Weeknd, whom she toured with Fall of 2013. Banks, chooses to go by her last name because of the dichotomy between her melodic, feminine and empowering lyrics within her music, in contrast to her last name, feeling that it is “strong and powerful, yet a bit masculine”, in which those two sides represents her to a T.
