Permanent Records is an ongoing closer look at the records that matter most. Raw Power isn’t simply the title of Iggy Pop’s 1973 signature album with the Stooges; it’s the spirit and attitude instilled in the recording. The Stooges wasn’t a band riding high after two major-label releases. Show More Summary

At this Sunday’s (August 24) MTV Video Music Awards, Pharrell will be the one male facing off against female pop forces Beyonce, Miley Cyrus, Iggy Azalea and Sia in the Video Of The Year category.

Unless you've been living vacuum-sealed under a rock on the ocean floor, the hook to Song of the Summer 2014 "Fancy" has surely wormed its way into your ear. And last summer, you couldn't walk into a party without "I Love It" blasting to the stratosphere. These two insidiously catchy songs have one thing in common, and that's Charli XCX. Read more...
It wasn't all that long ago that Iggy Azalea was trying to kick off a career as a pop princess. (If you haven't watched the "Nothing Like Me" video yet, you really should.) Who would have thought that just six years later, that sheepish...Show More Summary
Charli XCX can do complicated and weird, and that all turns out pretty well. XCX is slowly taking over the pop world, from helping launch Ryn Weaver to stardom and contributing a killer part to Iggy Azalea's huge hit "Fancy." And if her latest single is any evidence, she's still just warming up.
Last week, someone uploaded a song and accompanying music video to YouTube entitled, "Iggy Azalea - Nothing Like Me (Official Music Video)." It's a terrible track and a shoddy music video, but worst of all, it's pop music. As if that's going to chip away at Azalea's street cred or something. Read more...
This week’s big videos were Iggy Azalea’s take on Kill Bill and Ariana Grande’s take on (I guess) Barbarella, and they were both straight trash. You can make a good pop video by making a pastiche of a particular movie; 2Pac doing Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome springs immediately to mind. But that’s not enough. The [...]
One-time boy-wizard Daniel Radcliffe told a radio host that not only is a massive fan of The Stooges and their music, but he’d be a great pick to play The Rock & Roll Iguana because, "We've got a similar, gnarly sort of, slightly strange skinny bodies."
Before she scored (arguably) the song of the summer with "Fancy," Iggy Azalea apparently tried her hand at Britney Spears-style Auto-Tuned pop. This is allegedly a leaked video for an early Azalea song aptly titled "Nothing Like Me." Read more...
Zig Zags are a Los Angeles-based punk and metal band. They're rhinos, and they'll be at Lo-Fi tonight coming at us live. Guitarist Jed Maheu, bassist Patrick McCarthy, and drummer Bobby Martin slam it down heavy. Their music makes you...Show More Summary
First things first, this song is a straight-up rip off of Britney Spears' "Womanizer." But that aside, one of Iggy Azalea's pre-fame music videos, for a song called "Nothing Like Me," has apparently surfaced online. As Time points out,...Show More Summary
Before finding fame as a rapper, Iggy Azalea briefly tried her hand at dance-pop. The Australian hitmaker recorded a sexy club-banger called “Nothing Like Me” prior to signing with Grand Hustle and probably forget all about it. Until someone posted the Britney Spears-channelling video on YouTube. (Think “Womanizer” filmed on an iPhone). Of course, bloggers are... More »
Pop starlet Iggy Azalea has unveiled her latest video for ‘Black Widow’, featuring none other than Rita Ora. Taking inspiration from Japan’s action films and paying more than a passing resemblance to Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill saga, the… Watch the New Iggy Azalea ‘Black Widow’ Video Featuring Rita Ora is a post by Alec Leach on Highsnobiety.
Iggy Azalea, Rita Ora and MAGIC! all performed at Pandora Summer Crush — a free concert showcasing 2014?s break-out pop stars — on Santa Monica pier on Saturday night (August 9).

What?! We all had a Britney phase, but dayum, gurl! It turns out before she took the rap world by storm, Iggy Azalea was less DMX and more Xtina! Who knew she could sing too? Gurl still had dat butt tho! Ch-ch-check out this amazing early video (above) discovered by fans, in which the Aussie rapper shows off [...]
This year’s queen of the summer pop scene played the “Today Show”'s “Summer Concert” series on Friday. Iggy Azalea delivered her warm season hits before a crowd of mainly teenage girls in a performance that could best be described as curvaceous.
All the songs we’ve heard from My Everything (thus far) indicate that Ariana Grande is trying to distance herself from the middle-of-the-road, grandma-friendly pop of Yours Truly. The 21-year-old roped in the services of Iggy Azalea for upbeat urban-pop smash “Problem” and embraced EDM on Zedd-assisted club anthem “Break Free”. It’s interesting then that she takes... More »
Look: These BarackDub videos, in which internet goons edit footage together and make it look like the President Of The United States Of America is singing goofy pop tunes, are obviously the dumbest shit ever. They are also compulsively watchable, for reasons I don’t quite understand. And now, the inevitable: These people have combed through [...]
