Tyler, the Creator isn't a fan of Drop Dead Clothing, the clothing line from Bring Me The Horizon vocalist Oliver Sykes. The issue seems to be over a t-shirt that reads "kill people burn shit skip school" which is pretty damn close to the Tyler lyric, "kill people burn shit fuck school." Tyler's response to the shirt? I'm censoring it and taking it out of all caps: "That kid with radical lyrics on his shirt is some tumblr f*g fuck him don't use my shit pussy."

MTV has announced that the 29th season of the Real World will come with a twist: instead of just seven strangers brought together to have their lives ruined/taped/made fun of -- the housemates will be forced to live with their exes. This has nothing to do with music except that it's on MTV and we can pretend that's what the 'M' still stands for and I find it hilarious that this is the state of entertainment.

Clear is an experiment to explore all of the different writing styles in the band. It's rare when you have a band where every member is capable of writing and producing music. With each member controlling their own track, this recording enabled us to go down any path we chose in terms of style and sound.
“Every track also contains a melodic theme established in Clear's intro track Overture this common thread links all of...

Spotify for Artists is an effort to engage artists and calm fears that streaming services are bad for musicians (fears personified by high-profile names like Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke). The biggest news is a real-time analytics dashboard that tracks how often an artist's music is being listened to and which songs are most popular. In addition to these basic metrics, the dashboard also offers up demographical insights, letting artists check up on their fans' age, gender, and location. It's like Google...
