Gwen Stefani Has a New Single!!!

Attention - hold the presses - Gwen has debuted new music!


:O

GWEN

 
And you thought this was just an average Saturday night. Well, no more! Put down that pumpkin spice latte (do I need to capitalize that?) and follow me!
 
 
It's called "Used to Love You" and, because Gwen is a vulnerable poet (holla), we pretty much can assume the song's impetus. But pain makes great art, as history has demonstrated to us again and again. I only write poetry after break-ups, and at the time, I usually make sure I am wearing lots of clothing I purchased with my Mom's credit card at Hot Topic.
 
So, thoughts:
 
1.) Are you ready for "Tragic Kingdom: Part Deux?" I don't know if I am, but, it could be a good thing. Remember Gwen - make GOLD from the poop life has handed and sell that poop! (TM)
 
2.) Is Gavin ready for this? Because ... you're in for a treat dude ...
 
3.) Is Taylor Swift going to co-write a song on this new album? Because: yes. And also-
 

(It still makes me giggle, several years later.)

Really though, from that fan recording, this track sounds great. Very confident, very strong, very emotional and raw. It lacks the artifice of "Baby Don't Lie" (which was catchy, but felt a little phoned-in) and other songs where Gwen didn't sound that much like Gwen, but more like she was playing a part. This feels genuine, and it hurts.

I'm sorry Gwen. Broken hearts are never fun; however, I am still single and own several guinea pigs, so there is that silver lining. As in, you can call me, and we can discuss feelings. Or I can read you poetry.

...

I mean, either/or.

Irina Cummings - Can you please send me an appropriate GIF to end this blog post? Something along the lines of "QUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEN." Maybe something with Oprah. Thanks!

  1. SHIT I JUST HEARD ABOUT THIS, SHAME ON MOI!!!!11!!1 Ugh I knew her divorce would bring back the real Gwen, because let's be honest, "Baby Don't Lie" and "Spark the Fire" were rather forgettable. My vag is SO ready for "Early Winter"/"4 in the Morning"/"Don't Speak"-type of anthems!!

    Oh, here are some GIFs that could best describe my reaction to this song (including two GIFs from the Oprah show lmao):

      THANK YOU.

      I feel really bad she's going through all this pain right now, but omg if we get another "Early Winter" I will DIE.

    2. Yeah, it does seem like Gwen is at her most inspired when she's heartbroken (not in a boring-ass Adele kind of way tho). I really don't think "Early Winter's" perfection will ever be matched, but I'd love it if she went for something in a similar vein!

"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

Give JR a Break

Recently, I've been reading some sites that have criticized James Roday, the lead actor on the USA show PSYCH for an apparent weight gain. But you know what? Who gives a flying fizzle stick if James Roday is slightly larger than he was 4 years ago. Apparently, it wasn't enough to scare away his current girlfriend/ co-star Maggie Lawson. (Who is one hell of a Catch!) And NO they are not engaged. That seems to be nothing more than a rumor, but there is a very high chance of it happening in the near future. Anyway, as long as PSYCH continues to entertain I don't mind about James Roday's waist. He, and Dule Hill, and Corbin Bernson too, can eat all the fried broccoli they want. The last episode of PSYCH wasn't so smashing, but I don't blame it on dietary issues. QATFYG: Are you keeping up with Psych? And who is hotter, James Roday or Maggie Lawson? (Trick Question but idk why) PS: If you have heard any more news on Roday and Lawson becoming Roday-Lawso

Lilith help me, I want to stake the second episode of True Blood!

Episode 2: Authority Always Wins Well here we are again, time to sink our twin hard-ons into the new episode! Before I get into the thick of things, again I must let you know HERE BE MASSIVE SPOILERS. And I’m going to recap this by the characters instead of a timeline account, because not much happens in this episode.
