A sharp-eyed reader tipped me off to something that had upset her, and she wanted to know our take. It was a music video for the song “Who Drank By Whiskey” by Jez Dior, an up-and-comer who believes torturing women is edgy, in the same way that Miley Cyrus thinks putting on a grill gives her street cred.

As all you music festival lovers out there may know, Coachella just announced its 2014 lineup last night. As with many music (and film, and literary…) gatherings, Coachella can be a bit of a boys’ club. Nevertheless, there are plenty of amazing female musicians who will be putting on amazing acts that you should see, whether they’re solo acts or part of a group. Here are but a few of them. More
A woman has accused Bright Eyes frontman and indie music icon Conor Oberst of rape. Here’s what she says happened. More
1) Taylor Swift is getting rull, rull annoying.
2) Taylor Swift made a friend comment on her lovelife because doing so is “against her rules.”
3) Taylor Swift & Harry Styles’ relationship just got a whole lot creepier after this revelation.

Well hello there Miss American Idol. Kelly Clarkson might not have meant to make a cutting comment about her industry and the stars that inhabit it, but her discussion about fashion in the music industry was rather perceptive if you ask me. Let’s all think about how many artists lately have used their fashion choices to gain publicity in a crowded market. Sure, Lady Gaga is the easiest target, but Rihanna, Jessie J and Lana Del Ray are all well-known examples. And while these ladies are seen as making very unique choices, they normally have a huge sex-appeal component with a dash of trendiness or high fashion for balance. More

OMG guys, MTV is playing music videos again. What a funny and original joke I’ve just made. Anyway, I’m pretty excited about their new web show Weird Vibes. It’s produced by Shirley Braha, the same rock nerd who brought us the late lamented TV show “New York Noise,” and it features a lot of artists who I think deserve to reach a wider audience. Also: some fine outfits. Here are a few of my favorite looks from the very first episode, “It’s Not Easy Being A Buzzband.” More
Are you kidding me? Are you kidding me with this elephant business? Hah. That was funny, women of America. You got me! You got me with the whole “pretending to desire Robert Pattinson sexually” joke. I’m glad that’s over now, and we can go back to lusting after these infinitely more appropriate and desirable brooders. More
The Gloss was just having an informal roundtable discussion about terrible nineties alternative rock (namely, can we tell Puddle of Mudd from Nickelback?) (UPDATE: No), and when Jennifer said she had no clue about this stuff to begin with, Lilit cringed and said, “I dated some musicians in the nineties.” We all agreed this was a bad idea, because dating musicians generally means a sacrifice of any kind of, oh, I don’t know, reliability?
