Watch Lady Gaga Willingly Let Someone Puke On Her Repeatedly While Singing “Swine” At SXSW Because Art and Stuff

The problem with extremely creative people finding large scale success early in their careers is that nine times out of ten they are unable to maintain that level of fame for very long. That thing called fame is a monster, you see, and recently it got the best of Lady Gaga.

Last night, Lady Gaga was brought on stage for her highly publicized SXSW appearance while strapped to a spit over an active grill. While leather-clad men spun the ARTPOP singer, she worked through her opening number as her dreads lapped the grill below and flames danced just a few …


Metallica Admit Respect For Justin Bieber

Okay, we all get it: most fans of traditional bands (you know, groups that have one or two guitarists, a bassist, drummer, and vocalist) will rail away at whichever pop artists are big at the time for a variety of reasons that are either rational or absurd. So it should go without saying that there is going to be a some sort of public outrage now that Metallica, one of the most respected bands in metal history, have collectively given Justin Bieber the nod in response to his praise of the band when he said that “One,” and “Fade …


Universal Begins Shutting Down Smiths/’Peanuts’ Mashup Tumblr

God save micro-blogging.

It’s Friday, and like you we really don’t want to be at work anymore. UTG is fun and all, but most of us work day jobs that put us in front of monitors full of numbers and reports we pretend to work on while secretly sneaking off to enjoy whatever nonsense the internet has recently brought to life. One hotbed for such content is Tumblr, and this morning we learned from our friends at Stereogum that one of our favorite blogs will soon be little more than digital dust.

This Charming Charlie rose to internet fame earlier …

American Idol 2013

Ten Former American Idol Contestants (Each) Suing For $25 Million

Wow. Things aren’t looking that great for the producers of American Idol.

According to TMZ, ten former African-American contestants have filed a lawsuit against the show. They claim they were unjustly released from the show because of their race. The kicker is that each contestant that filed is looking to gain $25 million for their troubles.…


Metro Station Raise Less Than 1/5 Of Indiegogo Campaign Goal, Releasing EP in August

If you’re going to go out on a limb and ask people for money to support your dream, what do you do if they don’t respond the way you had hoped? If you’re Metro Station, the answer is simple: Release the album anyways.

You may remember a story earlier this year about Metro Station launching an Indiegogo campaign to fund the recording and release of a comeback EP. The group asked for $50,000, but when the campaign ended on May 14 they had only managed to raise $8,105. No press releases were sent out, no updates from the band …

John Eastman

Alleged Pedophile Arrested For Posing As One Direction Member Online

Take heed of this story, kids. Your favorite musician probably would never proposition you like this, and even if they did you should never play along. This is at least the third instance of this happening in recent years, and sadly it’s probably not the last.

John Eastman, a 45-year-old man from Connecticut, has been arrested for allegedly posing online as One Direction member Harry Styles to entice young girls into performing sex acts. An arrest warrant issued for Eastman claims he would use the username Harry.Styles888 on Skype along with a series of images he found online to prove …


HOLY SH!T: The Ataris Frontman Has A Meltdown In New Jersey, Throws Equipment At Drummer (Video)

This is a story that is both surprising and sad. As someone who owes a great deal of thanks to The Ataris’ for the impact of their material on their life, it sucks to now be writing about frontman Kris Roe coming unhinged in front of a New Jersey crowd over the weekend, but it happened (and we have the video).

“Your Boyfriend Sucks” is a longtime staple of The Ataris’ live show, and when the band began performing it last night in Asbury Park, New Jersey things seemed to be going fine. Then the set took a turn for …


EDITORIAL: “Resident Evil 5: What the Horror Flick’s Performance Tells Us About Industry Trends in 2012″

Sequel may be a dirty word among jaded moviegoers but it remains an exciting one for most of Hollywood. In troubling economic times, nothing excites studios more than consistent results, which explains why we’ve seen a slew of sequels across multiple series in recent years. Horror has largely dominated the realm – Saw and Final Destination immediately come to mind – but even more action-packed franchises like The Fast and the Furious have jumped on the bandwagon. This weekend’s top box office performer, Resident Evil: Retribution, offers another example. The fifth movie in the zombie action series based on …


WTF&$%: Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine Stated Obama Is Behind Aurora/Sikh Temple Shootings

How do I start this post by not sounding rude? What the flying fuck is Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine talking about?

In a bizarre new video, shot on August 7 in Singapore, Mustaine rants onstage that President Obama is secretly behind the shootings that happened in Aurora, Colorado and the Sikh Temple. Honestly, there is no response that I can think of that would not be mean towards Mustaine.

He stated, “”Back in my country, my president is trying to pass a gun ban, so he’s staging all of these murders. Like the ‘Fast And Furious’ thing down at the



Artist: POP ETC
Album: POP ETC
Genre: Indie
Label: Rough Trade Records

Wait!  What the fuck?

I obviously missed the memo.  It took me five full (and uncomfortable) spins of the self titled POP ETC album to discover that they were the artists formerly known as The Morning Benders.  Upon realizing this, I’ve come to the conclusion that someone has some God damn explaining to do.  How exactly does a band go from sounding like The Shins to being mistaken for Owl City (true story) in one release?  Is this a marketing ploy?  Have they been getting high on …


SHAMELESS: Soulja Boy Releases “Stop Kony” (Seriously)

Proving he is never one to NOT cash in on a trend, Soulja Boy has released a song in support of Invisibile Children’s #KONY2012 campaign.

You read that right: Less than 48 hours after going viral, Soulja Boy has released a song to support #Kony2012.

Let’s overlook for a second how little Soulja Boy has cared about other major events (where is the #bringtroopshome2012 song? Maybe the #herrighttochoose song?) and focus on the facts: Any “art” rushed to be completed while the topic is still popular on social media is almost ALWAYS a letdown. “Stop Kony” is no different. Set …
