R. Kells nude mannequin (sans fake beard or merkin) probably won’t be as popular as Jane Birkin Nude
kanyewest.com: New “Can’t Tell Me Nothin'” (Zach Galifianakis version) vid posted. Zach and Will Oldham get down with some tractors and Amish kids.
NME headline of the week: Coldplay: ‘Our new album has Hispanic theme.’ However, Chris Martin explains there will be no maracas or castanets. I hope it sounds like Cinco de Michael.
