Kanye West Reignites His Feud With Taylor Swift Over Controversial Song Lyric


(PCM) Kanye West just unveiled his new album “Life Of Pablo” during a kick-off event for New York Fashion Week held at Madison Square Garden. The album made its’ debut during the Yeezy Season 3 show, as West played tracks from the album during the runway show. However, with it being Kanye West, there is no surprise that there had to be a bit of controversy thrown into the mix.

It appears that West may have reignited his infamous feud with Taylor Swift with a lyric in the song “Famous” to which he raps that he and Taylor probably should have sex because he “made that b**ch famous”.  After receiving quite a bit of backlash online after the track was released, West claims that he spoke with Taylor about both the song and the lyric and she was well aware of the joke and gave her blessing.  West tweeted, “I did not diss Taylor and I’ve never dissed her …”.  He claims she found the lyric funny.

However, according to Taylor’s publicist Tree Paine Taylor never gave her approval on the track and said in the following statement, “Kanye did not call for approval, but to ask Taylor to release his single ‘Famous’ on her Twitter account. She declined and cautioned him about releasing a song with such a strong misogynistic message. Taylor was never made aware of the actual lyric.”

West went on to defend using the word b**ch in the song claiming that it is an endearing term for women in the hip-hop community. Taylor’s friends and fans have already begun to come to her defense via social media and even her brother Austin posted a video on Instagram of him throwing his Yeezy shoes in the garbage can.

Red Lobster Sees A Huge Sales Increase After Being Mentioned In Beyonce’s New Single!


(PCM) Seafood chain restaurant Red Lobster claims they have seen an almost 33 percent increase in sales after the release of Beyonce’s new single “Formation” where in a lyric she mentions taking her man to Red Lobster after sex! Talk about the power of pop culture! Reps from Red Lobster are deeming the sales increase the “Beyonce Bounce” and definitely credit her for the huge surge in sales.

Red Lobster has seen a steady decline in sales over the last few years and was sold by Darden Restaurant Group back in 2014.  It is now privately owned by investment firm Golden Gate Capital. After Beyonce dropped the “Formation” video, Red Lobster also became trending topic on Twitter for the first time ever. Red Lobster is incredibly grateful to Queen Bey and they jokingly tweeted “Cheddar Bey Biscuits” has a nice ring to it, don’t you think?”.

It is unclear whether or not Red Lobster has attempted to make any contact with Beyonce or her camp, but things are definitely moving forward at a fairly fast pace. Red Lobster boasts 700 locations in the United States and Canada.

Elton John Joins James Corden For Post-Super Bowl Carpool Karaoke On The Late, Late Show!


(PCM) Sir Elton John is the latest musician to join host of The Late Late Show, James Corden for a little carpool karaoke, as they jetted around in the very rainy Los Angeles weather belting out many of Elton John’s top hits. The clip is hilarious!

Their drive features songs such as “Your Song”, “I’m Still Standing”, “Crocodile Rock” and “Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me” to name just a few!  The whole Lion King bit was especially comical!

Savoy At Union Transfer In Philadelphia, PA! Concert Review And Exclusive Interview!


(PCM) This was our very first time witnessing Savoy live in concert and talk about putting on one heck of a show … these guys absolutely killed it and seriously, who can get enough lasers?! They by far and away put on one of the best laser light shows we have ever witnessed despite the small size of a venue like Union Transfer in Philadelphia, PA. Savoy played this show as if they were playing to an arena and we eagerly gobbled up every moment.


The fact that Savoy is a group that turns the standard definition of EDM straight on its’ head is definitely what has made us fall in love with them. They are completely unafraid to play around with various genres and a truly a group that refuses to be boxed into any particular format. Their live show gives the audience the feeling of raging out to a killer rock band while being entranced by the strong bass beats and incredible laser lights, all at the same time.  It is an out of this world experience and one that we highly recommend.

PCM’s Kristyn Clarke had a chance to catch up with Mike Kelly and Gray Smith of Savoy just prior to the groups amazing performance. You can check out the full interview below:
