James Gandolfini Dies in Italy at 51
HBO confirms Wednesday that the star of The Sopranos has died in Italy, possibly of a heart attack.
Gandolfini was only 51 years old, and was in Italy to attend the Taormina Film Festival.
"The New Jersey-born actor is survived by his wife, Deborah Lin, their daughter and a son from a previous marriage."
Such sad news.
Prayers go out to his family.

Kanye West Debuts "American Psycho" Inspired Trailer for "Yeezus"

If you're not too excited to buy Yeezy's new album to help feed his un-named child, this trailer may sway your decision.
It stars Scott "Lord" Disick and Kim K.'s BFF Jonathan Cheban mimicking a famous scene from the movie American Psycho.

Personally, this kind of freaked me out. Because, along with some of the titles on the record....and this seems like Mr. West is angry....but then again....isn't he always?

Miley Cyrus Debuts Video for "We Can't Stop"

This video is a complete mind-F*$k.
It's just hard to see Hannah Montana all grown up, but the song is great and the party in the video looks like a blasty blast. It light-weight reminds me of this Fiona Apple video.

Jay-Z Announces New Album "Magna Carta Holy Grail"

For those of you watching the NBA Finals Sunday night, you most likely caught the commercial that Jay-Z will be releasing his 12th studio album this summer!
For those of you who missed it:

Makes sense, considering he'll be kicking off the Legends tour with Justin Timberlake this summer too.
What makes this album unique is that Jay will be teaming up with Samsun to promote the album.
Hov is such a marketing genius!
According to the New York Times:
"... the company is giving away a million copies to its cellphone subscribers as a promotion.
Jay-Z, the Brooklyn rapper, announced the deal with a three-minute commercial during halftime of the NBA finals on Sunday night. The album, “Magna Carta Holy Grail,” will come out on July 7, but it will be made available free three days earlier to Samsung subscribers through a mobile application."

Throwback Monday

This video is hilarious, because I find the collaboration between Michael and Paul strangely phenomenal...and also the fact that Michael's love interest in the video is LaToya....yes...Michael's sister.
