From Degrassi to Drake: Canada’s Hit TV Show Shapes Pop Culture

August 14th, 2009
Photo: Annie Racz (Drake), Epitome Until recently, the only people checking on the Canadian teen drama Degrassi: The Next Generation were teen girls and die-hard fans of the original ’80s series. But in the last year, all of that’s changed. Between Drake storming the hip-hop scene with his single “Best I Ever Had,” Shenae Grimes’ starring role on 90210, Nina Dobrev’s part in the upcoming series Vampire Diaries and Jake Epstein’s lead in the touring company ...

August 14th, 2009
A new Chris Brown recording called “Changed Man” that features lyrics that could be interpreted as an apology of sorts to Rihanna leaked today. But Brown’s reps told MTV that the track isn’t the first single off Brown’s forthcoming LP Graffiti, but an old tune. A handful of new Brown songs have leaked over the past few months, however Jive Records insists that no Graffiti-bound tracks have emerged as yet. The singer first made mention ...

Photo: Metcalfe/Getty MGMT, “Anything Could Happen” [Clean Cover] Well, this is a nice surprise: dance act du jour MGMT point their acolytes toward the past with this cover of a Kiwipop classic. Does this mean we should expect to see Kanye twittering about “Tally Ho” sometime within the next few weeks?

Flashback: Ween Visit MTV Back When It Was “Oddville”

August 14th, 2009
With this week’s news that MTV would be vacating their famed 1515 Broadway studios at year’s end, we figured it’s a great time to look back at the channel’s glory days, when a bizarro late-night talk show called Oddville could feature a musical performance from bizarro musical satirists like Ween and it would be completely normal abnormal-programming (Anyone else remember Austin Stories?) The above video dates back to 1997, when the under-appreciated Gene and Dean ...

August 14th, 2009
Photo: Pereira/Michael Ochs Archives/Getty Nine months ago I sat down with Les Paul backstage in his dressing room at the Iridium nightclub for a story about the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s tribute concert recently held in his honor.
