Gossip? | Rock Candy

This may've happened a long time ago, but only today did it come to my attention (thanks to an always reliable Rock Candy tipster) that the Gossip is just plain Gossip now, perhaps in an effort to distance themselves from the glut of "the" bands. When did this happen?

Old news to "Hills" faithful: The Gossip are this week's "MTV Buzzworthy Artist of the Week." Throughout the week, MTV is showing snippets from videos like the awesome "Listen Up" above (I love the teenage fawning over the album and bedroom stepping while Beth knits placidly) and another clip where the band members talk about early influences. Brace Paine, nee Nathan Howdeshell of Searcy, says Sonic Youth and Mariah Carey and the oldies station.

  • Janet Jackson at Verizon Arena: A Review

    Her dance abilities had clearly diminished, as they naturally would over two decades. I mean, she's 50. And has a newborn. I get it, but it's like they're grasping at recreating 20 year-old Janet instead of focusing on what makes 50 year-old Janet amazing, and I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t terribly disappointed.
