If you watched Arcade Fire’s recent Coachella headlining performance, then, whether you realized it or not, you actually caught a glimpse of Jesse Pinkman in the flesh. Actor Aaron Paul has revealed on Instagram that he was behind the giant, paper-mache mask of Pope Francis onstage during the show. As you’ve probably seen, as part of the Reflektor tour, the Canadian outfit has incorporated massive bobble heads into their performance. And, you never know whose behind them. It was recently revealed that Strokes frontman Julian Casablancas was the one wearing the Win Butler mask during Arcade Fire’s recent concert at Lollapalooza Chile. The only question now is, who was wearing the President Obama mask? ... Discuss

 

Beneath Pharrell's giant hat and ubiquitous single lies a guy who seems truly humbled by where he's at in his career. After Oprah showed him a brief montage of people around the world singing "Happy," Pharrell was reduced to tears, saying "It's overwhelming because it's like, I love what I do and I appreciate the fact that people have believed in me for so long that I can make it to this point, to feel that." Not all tears are an evil, Pharrell. Not all tears are an evil ... Discuss

 

Global superstar and human Christmas tree Taylor Swift was flipping through her fan mail recently (which, by the way, she gets a lot of, and it's genuinely cool that she takes time to read at least some of it) and happened upon an invitation to Gena Gabrielle's bridal shower in Ohio. Miss Swift has never met Gena or anything, but she was touched enough by the offer to take her up on it, all unbeknownst to Gena or anyone else at the shower. And she filmed the whole thing and posted it to her YouTube page, for good measure. Publicity stunt? Sure. But it's hard enough to get your close friends to come to a shower, so it's fun when an international celebrity takes time out of a very busy schedule to make it.

The look on Gena's face is great, and T-Swift brought along a covered wagon's worth of cookware for the married couple-to-be. Who needs a steady boyfriend when you can make a girl's wedding shower dreams come true just by showing up? ... Discuss

 

The site Movoto has put together this interactive map of the United States that shows where throughout the country specific genres of music are most popular. After clicking on a selected style of music, the color-coded maps indicates where its most listen to. How did they measure popularity? According to the site, “We calculated musical taste scores using data from the National Endowment of the Arts, the Bureau of Labor Statistics, and the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis (via the Martin Prosperity Institute) and state level music preferences from Wikipedia.” Sounds pretty official. Who knew bluegrass was so popular in the Pacific Northwest? We knew gentle bands were big up there, but bluegrass? ... Discuss

 

Now, because we can't see his face, we don't know that this is Leonardo DiCaprio dancing to MGMT at Coachella. But whoever's taking the video sure seems to think it is, and Mr. DiCaprio had been spotted at Coachella earlier that day wearing that exact same outfit, so let's hope that it's Leonardo DiCaprio dancing to MGMT at Coachella, because it is a thing of beauty. Should Mr. DiCaprio fail to ever take home his long-denied Oscar for acting, he should consider dancing, because he's got literally everything it takes ... Discuss

 

The Black Keys have released the title track off their forthcoming Turn Blue and, in keeping with that first song we heard from the album, it's another hazy, psychedelic departure from the straight-up rock and roll the boys cut their teeth on. It still sounds like something from the '60s and '70s, but it's definitely more Doobie Brothers than Zeppelin. The full album drops next month ... Discuss
