Little Big Town
Country music stations are pulling Little Big Town's new "Girl Crush" after receiving complaints about the content of the song. The tune, like the title suggests, is about a girl crush, and many mistakenly believe it promotes lesbianism.

Singer Karen Farichild sings lyrics such as: "I want to taste her lips, yeah cause they taste like you / I want to drown myself in a bottle of her perfume/ I want her long blond hair, I want her magic touch / Yeah cause maybe then, you’d want me just as much. . . I got a girl crush."

Even though the song is actually about jealousy, not a homosexual relat...

Justin Guarini
Former "American Idol" star Justin Guarini is making a comeback...sort of. The singer appears in a new commercial for Diet Dr. Pepper, but he looks decidedly different.

Guarini lost out to Kelly Clarkson on the first season o...

Action Bronson Leads Albums To Check Out: This Week In Music
Kendrick Lamar took some of the luster of this week away when he moved his sophomore album To Pimp A Butterfly up a week. It was a smart move at the time as the only other big attraction was Modest Mouse’s first album in eight years, Strangers To Ourselves. Even without Kendrick Lamar heading the bill, on an off-cycle Monday release date, there’s plenty of newbies to sink one’s teeth into, arguably led by the long awaited debut album by Action Bronson. But if AB can’t do it, maybe the task falls into the hands of the likes of Earl Sweatshirt, James Bay, Van Morrison, Kidz Bop Kidz, or St...
