  1. It’s a bit late, but here’s a new St. Patrick’s Day drinking song.
  2. Go home, Madonna. You’re drunk. Good thing that fan isn’t going to sue.
  3. Remember the music service Drip? It’s been bought.
  4. The sober rave? It’s just like it sounds.
  5. Interesting: Facebook users saw different trailers for Straight Outta Compton depending on their race. Cool, creepy or something else entirely?
