flavorwire.com — You've no doubt read the hysterical, salacious coverage of the ongoing disaster that has been Justin Bieber's European tour: the scuffles with god-awful photographers in England, the "drug bust" (i.e., getting busted for smoking weed - a nation gasps!), the bizarre heist that apparently involved someone absconding with all the money from the tour's Johannesburg date.
psmag.com — At first, it might sound gross or a little bit scary. Ridiculous, even. You wonder if it's going to hurt. Will it be meaningless? Messy? What if you don't know what to do-or if it happens too fast or too slow? Relax, man. It's totally natural. WE ARE ALL GOING TO DIE.
flavorwire.com — Anyone who saw Greta Gerwig providing the soft, gooey center for Noah Baumbach's sharply acidic Greenberg would understand why he'd want to cast her again; as the accidental love interest to Ben Stiller's misanthrope, she gave a performance so nuanced yet winning and deeply felt that it sent anyone who observed it reeling for synonyms for "star quality."
flavorwire.com — These are strange times for electronic music. The rise of what the US insists on calling EDM means the genre's more popular than it's ever been. A second wave of superstar DJs walk the globe, commanding crazy appearance fees and lengthy GQ profiles.
newyorker.com — This morning, The New Yorker launched Strongbox, an online place where people can send documents and messages to the magazine, and we, in turn, can offer them a reasonable amount of anonymity. It was put together by Aaron Swartz, who died in January, and Kevin Poulsen.

flavorwire.com — Now that The Great Gatsby has opened to favorable audience reviews and not-so-ecstatic critical response, there seems little left to be said about Baz Luhrmann's garish 3D romance. As expected, Luhrmann's picture is a mostly faithful adaptation of the book, if not a completely obvious one.
flavorwire.com — In an attempt to save you (not to mention ourselves) from the general Monday-morning awfulness that tends to follow a lovely spring weekend, Flavorwire has compiled a playlist of indie/rock/generally guitar-based songs that are genuinely funny. These are 20 of the flat-out wittiest and most amusing songs we know - and we guarantee that at least one of them will make you chuckle.
flavorwire.com — There's been some really great stuff on at the Red Bull Music Academy this year, and your correspondent is kicking himself for missing Brian Eno's lecture/Q&A last week. Thankfully, if you're in the same boat, a full recording of the 80-minute event is online now - you can watch it above, and it's fascinating.
flavorwire.com — If there's anything Jay Gatsby went in for, it was capitalism.
