A trip to Vegas and she lost her last name

Carrie Underwood kinda lost her last name in her new music video, “Last Name.” How did it happen? Well she married some guy she met in a bar and decided to marry him. The only problem is, she doesn’t know his last name. But hey! What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas right?

Nightwish: The Islander

This is the third music video from their newest album Dark Passion Play. The lead singer for this single is not Anette though (no, not Tarja either!), but Marco. If you’re familiar with Nightwish, it’s no doubt that Marco is good at heavy metal and hard rock. Yet I was never sure about him with songs like this (remember his scary performance in “While Your Lips Are Still Red”?) He truly delivered in this song though, showing he can sing outside his comfort zone. Reminds me of how Tarja always sings as if she’s telling a story. Rock on, Marco.

The single is out on May 21st

To Dø or not To Dø

Named after the first (and last) note on the music scale, The Dø is the quirky French-Finnish duo of Olivia B.Merilahti (vocals) and Dan Levy (guitar, synths). They explain that they are on a clear mission to crank out a sound that fills the void in popular music in their biography. “[Our music] spans the space between the rock and the roll, with wholesomeness & simplicity that excite like electricity,” the band says.

Dominated by Olivia’s idiosyncratic vocals, their music has an off the wall quality that is very refreshing. Listen to and watch video of the group’s European hit single “On My Shoulder” above.

The Do

Michael Stipe has something to announce: Fog?

Not long after he came out from the closet, Michael Stipe is declaring something on his band mates’ behalf. My immediate reaction: “LOL

Everybody flirts?
R.E.M.’s new record Accelerate is out April 1

Which R.E.M. member is gay?

This may not come as a surprise, but Michael Stipe, the lead vocal of R.E.M. is indeed gay. He talked to Spin Magazine about his coming out story.

It was super complicated for me in the ’80s. I was totally open with the band and my family and my friends and certainly the people I was sleeping with. I thought it was pretty obvious. Now I recognize that to have public figures be very open about their sexuality helps some kid somewhere out there.”

Yeah, who’d knew?
