The US rapper - who hadn't actually watched the video - tweeted: "I don't need to watch it to tell you that it's ultimately harmful...Perpetuating black stereotypes to the same demographic of white girls who hide their prejudice by proclaiming their love of the culture."

Big Guava 2014 Logo

Arguably what could be Florida's most fun-packed 3-day event of the year, Big Guava Music Festival makes its debut today (May 2nd 2014) with an impressive line-up headlined by Outkast, Vampire Weekend and Foster The People.

There's a lot of things we like about Florida, and we reckon Big Guava's inaugural event will definitely be one of them. Set against the glorious city backdrop of Tampa, this festival is bound to be the highlight of your year as it arrives at the Florida State Fairgrounds and Mid-Florida Credit Union Amphitheatre. As well as  40 awesome bands on 4 different stages, you got your craft beers, your diverse food trucks and your epic fairground rides (which are free, by the way) that will keep you busy in between performances from a line-up that prides itself on its quality over quantity. Having said that, we still think you're going to be spoilt for choice with this lot.

Grammy Awards 2014 Nominations: Who Are The Notable Absentees On The Nominee's List

Tags: Arcade Fire - Arctic Monkeys - Jay Z - Kendrick Lamar - James Blake - Earl Sweatshirt - Haim - Imagine Dragons - Pink - Daft Punk

The 2014 Grammy Awards will take place in January 2014, with the full list of nominees being revealed over the weekend. Jay-Z was the most capped nominee, with nine nods in total, whilst Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Kendrick Lamar and Daft Punk were also among the list of potential winners, but there were a number of artists who were nowhere to be seen on the list of nominations.

Arcade Fire
After their shock win in 2011, Arcade Fire have been ignored this time

Despite their last album, The Suburbs, being a runaway success at the 2011 Grammy Awards, Arcade Fire are nowhere to be seen on next year's list. Their fourth album, Reflektor, was met with almost universal praise and some critics noted that it was an improvement form their latest release, but it seems as though the Grammy committee weren't as impressed as everyone else. The Canadian band don't even appear in the Best Alternative categories, however it is pleasing to see Tame Impala and Vampire Weekend among the nominees in this category, especially considering VW released one of the albums of the year with Modern Vampires of the City.

It's Luke Bryan's 'Party' And He Can Stay Atop The Charts If He Wants To!

Tags: Luke Bryan - John Mayer - Jimmy Buffett - Earl Sweatshirt

Luke Bryan has remained at the top of the US Billboard Charts for the second week with his new album 'Crash My Party', narrowly beating John Mayer's new release 'Paradise Valley'.

The country star may have suffered a dramatic 70% decline in sales from the first week by only selling 159,000 copies this week as opposed to last week's 528,000, but John Mayer still needed to be up 144,000 to have had a chance at the top spot this week. 'Crash My Party' is the fourth studio album from Luke and his first to top the US, the US Country and the Canada charts, his previous album 'Tailgates & Tanlines' only scraping the top spot on the Country chart.

John Mayer is a little more used to success, his 2012 album 'Born and Raised' hitting number one across the world and even securing a spot at number 4 on the UK charts - an unlikely place to be for an American country record. A possible hindrance for 'Paradise Valley''s success could be that his performance of new single 'Wildfire' on 'The Late Show with David Letterman' wound up not being aired due to CBS' own problems with Time Warner Cable.

The Critics Love 'Doris,' Not That Earl Sweatshirt Cares

Tags: Odd Future - Earl Sweatshirt

Having emerged as part of Odd Future, Earl Sweatshirt became a fans’ favourite with tracks like Chum and WHOA. With a veritable truckload of hype behind him, the pressure was on to provide a solid debut album, and he looks to have surpassed himself.

“Doris displays some of those growing pains, but it also delivers a uniquely impressive collection of vicious beats and lyrics that make Magna Carta...Holy Grail sound like Marky Mark,” say Pretty Much Amazing in their review, while Pitchfork reckon “With Doris, Odd Future’s Odysseus is finally back and chasing the ghosts out of his head.”
