During an intimate performance at the Sundance Film Festival last week, Courtney Love covered Jay-Z’s “99 Problems” and introduced it by saying, “This either sucks or it's genius, I don't know." That’s our girl! Courtney has never been afraid to take a risk and it’s one of the things we love most about her.
While we know Courtney has gone through periods where she has indeed had 99 problems, nowadays Courtney is doing just fine. Look out for her new single, “This is War” which comes out February 7th. Read More

There are countless poster girls for reading and literature, but so few of them know how to spit dope rhymes. La Shea Delaney and Annabelle Quezada (aka the B*tches in Bookshops) set out to change all that.
Parodying Jay-Z and Kanye West’s “N*ggas in Paris,” these literary ladies spin verses about reading on the subway, buying print books instead of digital (best lyric: “You use a Kindle? I carry spines/Supporting bookshops like a bra, Calvin Klein”), and the eternal quest for a man who can keep up (with his reading, that is). Read More

Jay-z's new blog is LEGIT. The aesthetically pleasing front page makes it's content easy to browse. The photographs are pristine, the articles are attention grabbing and interesting and the candid interview with Gwyneth Paltrow where she reveals her secret love of gangster rap is totally adorable. "I went to LA the summer between my junior and senior year of high school and i discovered N.W.A which became my obsession." Personally, one of the highlights of the site was the Santigold and Karen O collaboration. Read More
