StreetLevel has Hip-Hop’s Most Controversial Album Covers which includes blurbs about, among many others, 2 Live Crew’s As Nasty As They Wanna Be, Eminem’s The Slim Shady LP and Lil Jon & the East Side Boyz’ Put Yo Hood Up.

Somehow I missed diligent.me’s 2009 retrospective.  Cosign on the favorite single!

NME has Courtney Love defending herself from using ’Hole’ name for her new album.  Former band members are not on the album.

Fugees’ members, Pras and Wyclef, are heading to Haiti to help with the relief.  Both are urging for others to follow suit.

MSNBC writes that American Idol, once again, has started strong.  Yawn.

People has Jessica Simpson making music, laughter with Billy Corgan.  And I just threw up in my mouth quite a bit.

Gaga Craze

NME.com has a short, but good, blog post regarding Lady Gaga’s quick rise to popularity and fame.

It’s almost impossible to fathom that just one year ago, Lady Gaga was opening for New Kids On The Block and Natasha Bedingfield at L.A.’s Nokia Theater. This week she returned to the scene, but as the headliner of a super-sold-out three-night Nokia stint…and really, NKOTB and Natasha would be lucky to open for her now.

There’s no denying Gaga’s impact on mainstream pop music this year.  And as such, she was recently named MTV’s Woman of 2009
