#7 on the Pop Culture Countdown of Moments That Were/Are of No Significance To You- Kenny Chesney and Renee Zellweger or What I Call What Should Have Never Happened

Okay, let's get back to the basics. I had designed this countdown in my head as being a gloss-over of the past decade in pop culture but I had included some recent events that were just earthshattering (literally) to NOT have been included. Did that sentence make sense? Who know; who cares!

Let's journey back to the mid-2000s now. When smartphones had yet to take over the world and facebook was just a dream in Mark Zuckerberg's oval-shaped head.

#7 Renee Zellweger and Kenny Chesney Married And It Lasted Like Two Minutes



Oh I adore this picture for reasons I'm still not totally sure of. Look at those newlyweds! Look at her glow! Look at his ridiculous hat!

This one came of the blue, didn't it? No one even really seemed to know they were an item until much too late. And by then the unthinkable act had been carried out and Renee, supposedly, believed Kenny's tractor to be INDEED sexy.

Wait:  what?

Renee apparently became lucid when she woke up and saw who was next to her in her big bed in the Virgin Islands (Kenny Chesney). Likely she screamed and wanted their marriage to be revealed as what it kinda was- a fraud!

It lasted from May to September. C'est la vie. Renee would go onto date Jack White and celebrated manwhore Bradley Cooper. Kenny Chesney is still dodging gay rumors.

Other celebrity marriages that have lasted this little? The Kardashians, Britney Spears and her high school pal, I think we all know what you sign up for when you marry a Kardashian though...

"Chang-E" - Emmy the Great (new album out 10/9)

Emmy the Great drops her new album tomorrow on Bella Union - the fastest album she says she's ever created.  "April /月音" was completed after a trip to to her birth city Hong Kong in 2017. In early 2018, Emmy the Great made "April /月音" in a two-week period in Brooklyn - which was delayed for release until now because of her maternity leave. After recording this album, Emmy moved (for good) back to Hong Kong.  Since her original trip to Hong Kong, things have become quite tumultuous there. Said Emmy. "I’ll never know why the city called me back, but I know what it gave me. In return, I want to give it this album. That Mid-Autumn, nobody could have predicted what was to come, neither the atomization that began with the anti-Extradition Law protests in June 2019, nor the struggle for democracy that continues now, through the Covid-19 pandemic. To witness your birth city in its greatest moment of need is a powerful, humbling event, and I know I watched Hong Kong

"Round the Bend" - Zoon (Beck cover)

My favorite album of Beck's has long been "Sea Change," for approximately the 20 or so years it's been out. I would probably regard it as one of my personal favorite records, for its wistfulness and its beauty. When I heard about Zoon (aka Zoongide’ewin) - the musical project of Daniel Monkman - covering the "Sea Change" track "Round the Bend," I was somewhat skeptical simply because the album holds such a place in my heart. Now, prior to hearing about this cover, I wasn't so familiar with the work of Zoon. And now, I've got to say, in my best Owen Wilson - Wow.  Apparently we both hold the 2003 Beck album in high esteem. Said Daniel about "Sea Change," "After my first listen I was so moved and at the time I was going through a pretty bad break up and this album helped me process my depression. Throughout my time away from music I’d always have a copy beside me; it kept inspiring me that I could try any kind of music style. I

3 New Lana Songs Come Out From Upcoming Album "Blue Banisters"

Not even that far off from "Chemtrails Over The Country Club" being released this past March, Lana Del Rey dropped three new singles off her upcoming project, "Blue Banisters." They include the title track, "Text Book," and "Wildflower Wildfire." All three songs seem to merge the worlds of "COCC" with "Norman Fucking Rockwell," specifically Lana's mouthful of a track "Hope is a Dangerous Thing for a Woman Like Me To Have But I Have It." They also seem uncharacteristically more confessional than most of Lana's catalog to date, specifically "Wildflower Wildfire," which alludes to a conflict with her mother. She even starts the track with "Here's the deal," readying to show more of her backstory than she ever has in her decade-plus-long career. The three songs are gorgeous - especially "Text Book," which has a haunting quality to it (she mentions "Black Lives Matter" i
