Today's Music News: M.I.A.'s Halftime, Ja Rule's Fun in Prison, Ke$ha's Anti-depressant

Posted by on Mon, Feb 6, 2012 at 10:34 AM

In Case You Missed It: The Super Bowl was yesterday and Madonna put on an opulent half time performance (BTW if you plan on seeing her live sometime, Madge advises you to start "saving your pennies" now) with the biggest controversy coming from M.I.A.'s decision to say half of the word "shit" and flip off the camera.

Sounds Way Better Than the Fred Durst Douchebag Show: FX is currently developing a sitcom about a rock band that goes to couples therapy, with comedian Dana Gould to star, and Dave Grohl to executively produce.

Never Thought I Would Miss Paul Rodgers: Living members of Queen replace former Free/Bad Company frontman with American Idol silver medalist Adam Lambert for a string of upcoming concerts. I know there's no one who will ever fill Freddie Mercury's shoes, but this is just getting ridiculous.

Quote of the Weekend: Justin Vernon, of Bon Iver, on his band's decision not to play the Grammy's (despite being nominated for best album/song of the year): "Rock n' roll should be the fucking people with guitars around their backs. And their friends. And their managers." Granted, his brother Nate is his manager, but still.

Guess Whose Having a Great Time in Prison?: It's Ja Rule, seen here making an "o rly" face.

New Here We Go Magic: Luke Temple's latest band will release another album on Secretly Canadian on May 8th.

This Intern is Afraid: Sometimes when Ke$ha is sad she makes her assistant "put on the penis outfit [the giant one from her live shows] and bounce around my house." I can only hope my bosses are more benevolent/don't have giant genital costumes readily at their disposal.

Happy Birthday, Axl: Leader (and only remaining member) of Guns N' Roses turns 50 years old today. How about watching a video for the one GnR song that I get stuck in my head all the time?
