The Question For Which Nobody Has The Answer: WHERE DID ALL THE LOVE GO? Comments (0)

A kind of neo-“Rock the Boat” by the Hues Corporation (1974), The Rebel Light's “Where Did All the Love Go” is a sweet question for our sour times.

Katy Perry's third single from her as-yet-unreleased Witness album is “Swish Swish,” a Nicki Minaj-powered house (!) track that is being described as a passive-aggressive take-down of Taylor Swift.

Who cares who it's about? It's just great. Definitely a good way to kill the aftertaste of Bon Appétit ...

WIDGETGay Fleshbot (Work Unfriendly): If you're young, which of these male stars sparked your gay awakening? (If you're old, which caused you to feel like a dirty perv?)

WIDGETBuzzFeed: Trump's U.S. officials are denying visas to gay men attempting to flee gay concentration camps in Chechnya. Thanks, gay Trump voters!

WIDGETJoe.My.God.: Horrid human being Joe Lieberman, 75, likely to be named FBI Director. A politician for the FBI at this juncture? Perfect.

WIDGETInstinct: Aaron Hernandez's shady, weird fiancée says he denied he was gay to her, and, “He was very much a man to me.” Screw you, toad.

WIDGETYouTube @ The CW Television Network: The new Dynasty looks utterly awful, and Stephen is a queen:

Cher: I'M NOT A CHER FAN Comments (0)

I've always said I don't think of Cher as a musical artist because she seems so detached from her work in that field, and her new interview with Billboard bears out my theory:

In the ’70s, her Hollywood friends -- Geffen, Warren Beatty, Jack Nicholson, Joni Mitchell — were making great art; Cher felt ashamed of her songs. She wanted to sound like Bob Seger, Bruce Springsteen, Mitchell or, especially, the Eagles. Anything but Cher. “I’m not a Cher fan,” says Cher. “I just don’t think my aesthetic taste lies in her direction.”

... Cher knows and accepts what people want from her. “My idea, every night before I go onstage, is that this is a gift I was given, and can give to people. While they’re watching my show, they don’t have to think of anything else. It’s something that makes people feel good. That’s all I do -- make people feel good.”

Great stuff on her Twitter, her disdain for Trump and her refreshingly candid approach to aging — she hates it! (Most stars pretend they love it.) She remains best at giving interviews — and being Cher.

Rock God Chris Cornell Dies Suddenly @ 52 — Suicide Suspected Comments (0)

Via The New York Times: Another day, another iconic musician dead in his fifties — this time, legendary Soundgarden and Audioslave frontman Chris Cornell has died unexpectedly at age 52 while on tour.

Like fellow grunge icon Kurt Cobain, Cornell's death is suspected to have been a suicide; he was reportedly found in a hotel bathroom with something around his neck.

Snippet of His Last Perf, The Night He Died:

Corrnell's publicist Brian Bumbery (who also reps Madonna) said in a statement that his family was working with the M.E. to figure out definitively how Cornell died.

Soundgarden was one of the seminal grunge acts of the' 90s

Via NYT:

Badmotorfinger, released in 1991, benefited from the swell of attention that was beginning to surround the Seattle scene, where Soundgarden, along with Nirvana and Pearl Jam, were playing a high-octane, high-angst brand of rock ’n’ roll. Soundgarden’s musical journeys tended toward the knotty and dark, plunging into off-kilter meters and punctuated by Mr. Cornell’s voice, which could quickly shift from a soulful howl to a gritty growl

Three of Soundgarden’s studio albums have been certified platinum, including Superunknown, from 1994, which featured “Black Hole Sun,” “Fell on Black Days,” “Spoonman” and “My Wave.”

Cornell's recent social media output did not indicate depression, not that it would have to.

Madonna's Best Vocals EVER Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2017-05-17 at 8.57.03 PM(Video still via Pop Crush)

Madonna is not someone who can just open her mouth and sang, but her vocals have been terribly maligned over the years — the woman has a good pop voice, and often uses it quite beautifully.

Pop Crush has helpfully compiled some of her most stand-out live moments (they goofed on “Frozen,” which was 100% lipped). Madonna's biggest fans will know a couple of these in advance, but overall, nice choices ...
