GQ Names The 30 Least Influential People In 2014

In: Donovan, Music
2014-least-influential-people-gq

Clearly, GQ magazine wasn’t a fan of U2′s new album, Songs of Innocence, which automatically downloaded into every iTunes user’s library. The publication puts the Bono-fronted band on top of their annual “Least Influential List.” Every year, the glossy puts those “who took up vast clouds of oxygen, gave us back nothing of use, and probably helped accelerate the death of our planet,” on blast.

“The Tom Friedman of rock and the rest of his band collaborated with Apple to strong-arm their new album into your iTunes library without your consent. You couldn’t even delete it! Apple had to send out specific instructions for how to wipe Songs of Innocence (God, that title) off your computer. The worst part was the way both Apple and U2 treated this, like it was some kind of noble gift to The People; in fact this was a $100 million marketing campaign. Yes, $100 million to turn U2′s socially conscious dad-rock into a piece of direct mail.” – GQ

Do you agree that the Irish band belongs on top of their 2014 list? Others to earn a dishonorable mention from GQ include political mainstays President Obama and Sarah Palin, athletes and celebrities like Johnny Depp and Robin Thicke. The latter definitely earns his spot since his latest album sold an embarrassingly low amount in North America and around the world.

Not that I’m a huge Shia LaBeouf fan, but I wouldn’t have included him on the list. Especially after seeing his extremely sexy spread in Interview magazine. Check out his blurb below, along with my other favorite write-ups from GQ’s list.

weird-al-yankovic-foils

Weird Al Yankovic is going full out to promote his new album, Mandatory Fun, in stores now. The 54-year-old comedian has released a new video each day this week.

He started things off, poking fun at Pharrell Williams’ “Happy” with “Tacky” featuring cameos from Margaret Cho, Aisha Tyler and Eric Stonestreet. Yankovic followed that up with “Word Crimes” (Robin Thicke “Blurred Lines”), “Handy” (Iggy Azalea “Fancy) and “Foils” (Lorde “Royals”).

Wisely, Weird Al has debuted each video on different outlets- YouTube, College Humor and Yahoo. I can’t wait to see what he drops tomorrow. In the meantime, check out “Foils,” “Handy,” and “Word Crimes” below and share which one is your favorite.

robin-thicke-paula-album

After reaching career heights with his last album, Robin Thicke falls to a new low with his latest offering, Paula. It appears his estranged wife Paula Patton isn’t the only one NOT listening to his public groveling. Neither are his fans on both sides of the Atlantic.

At first, I thought his ode, “Get Her Back,” to win back his estranged wife was really sweet and touching. I was even okay with him dedicating his forthcoming album to her by naming it Paula. However, his quest to woo her back is starting to look like a desperate pity party.

Social media is starting to think that as well. He was inundated with scathing tweets ranging from his alleged misogyny and other antics during what was supposed to be a Twitter Q&A to promote his new album. One user even referred to him as ” a creepy, rapey, pound-shop Justin Timberlake.” OUCH!!!

In the end, all that really matters to Thicke at this point is if Paula Patton is buying any of it. I have no doubt the music video for “Still Madly Crazy” will tug on her heart strings. His latest stunt features pint-sized versions of himself and Paula wearing mini-tuxes and white dresses. An equally adorable lyric clip was also released for “Forever Love.” If ballads aren’t your thing, Afrojack has given the latter track a club-ready dance overhaul. Give it a listen below along with Thicke’s new clips.

robin-thicke-get-her-back

Since Paula Patton separated from Robin Thicke, the blue-eyed soul singer has been on a public campaign to win his estranged wife back. The lead cut “Get Her Back” off his forthcoming album, titled Paula is just a taste of what’s to come from the album that will undoubtedly feature Robin begging for his wife’s forgiveness.

The accompanying visual released today shows Robin getting even more raw and personal. He appears naked (emotionally and physically) in the simple back and white clip. In addition he shares what appears to be text exchanges between his wife. “I wrote a whole album about you,” a text reads. “I don’t care,” the reply says. OUCH!!!. Looks like Paula isn’t taking him back anytime soon. Whether or not she eventually forgives him, Paula hits stores in a couple of days. Check out the video below.

If Paula Patton ever plans on taking back Robin Thicke, I hope she holds out for a bit longer. Watching Robin Thicke publicly grovel is a nice change of pace after his misogynistic ways during the height of “Blurred Lines.” He’s clearly seen the error of his past ways.

At the 2014 Billboard Music Awards, the 37-year-old crooner debuted his slow-tempo R&B ballad which tells his regret over losing his lady love. The simple production is absolutely perfect for Robin to plead his case. If the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, the way to tug a woman’s heartstrings is through a song. I’m curious to know if this retro-tinged track makes any headway to winning his estranged wife back. Give “Get Her Back” a listen below.

“He loves [Robin] more than me,” younger brother Carter says in the show’s trailer. “Why? Because he makes him more money.” LOL. Consider me sold!!! I’m already hooked. The saucy title isn’t half bad either.

Unusually Thicke is a new 14-episode reality series premiering on TVGN on April 16. It follows the adventures of Growing Pains star Alan Thicke, his much younger third wife Tanya and teenage son Carter. “Unusually Thicke combines my two favorite things,” the 67-year-old actor said in a statement. “Family … and laughing at my family.”

I wanted NOT to like it due to my previous impression of Tanya on Celebrity Wife Swap, but I have to say, the charming trailer won me over. Their daily lives seem to be filled with lots of fun and humor.

If you have a thing for stars from yesteryear, Unusually Thicke has a slew of them. Several of Alan’s famous celebrity friends including David Hasselhoff, Bob Saget, John Stamos, Magic Johnson, Wayne Gretzky, Bill Maher and Tom Green make an appearance. Million dollar question is… do Robin and his now separated wife Paula Patton make an appearance? Check out the trailer below.

Director X sure is one busy dude today. Not only does he have one music video debuting, but two. First there was Iggy Azalea’s Clueless-inspired “Fancy” visual and now this colorful pink concoction. It’s like a 100 flamingos exploded everywhere.

Calling All Hearts” is a fun dance track featuring an all-star lineup. DJ Cassidy who’s deejayed celebrity parties for Oprah Winfrey, Naomi Campbell, Diddy and countless others, enlisted Nile Rodgers, Earth, Wind & Fire, Robin Thicke and Jessie J. for this retro-tinged single. It’s off his debut LP Paradise Royale scheduled for May. Check out the fun clip below.
