Murs Kicks Homophobia In The Butt 'Animal Style' With His Latest Video

Take that homophobia! Rapper Murs breaks barriers in his latest video 'Animal Style', going as far as playing the role of a gay boy, kissing a man on camera, and sporting a "Legalize Gay" T-shirt (calling for the repeal of California's ban on same-sex marriage Prop 8).

This shouldn't be a big deal, but let's face it, it still is.

Murs says: "Animal Style is a song I did for many reasons. The first was to be an advocate for people close to me who are out, and those who…

Lil Raggamuffin Summer Camp Rocks Jamaica

I'd like to tell you about the Lil Raggamuffin Summer Camp – an arts and entrepreneurship summer program located in the mountains of Jamaica.

Introducing Johnnie Heartbreak and the rAdiCaL Legs

Another find right from the AP community: Ms. Johnnie Heartbreak and the rAdiCaL Legs. If the demo for 'Shotgun' is any indication, we should be in for some kick-ass tunes when they're done recording their project. Rocking and rolling with a dash of hip-hop. "Urban rock", as they put it. The vocals go back and forth between smooth sensuality and defiant fierceness. You can say you heard them here first. :) - Lou…

Frank Ocean On His Sexual Orientation

Did you hear about singer Frank Ocean's online post in which he reveals that he once fell in love with a male friend? "4 summers ago, I met somebody. I was 19 years old. He was too.

I’d hear his conversation and his silence until it was time to sleep. Sleep I would often share with him. By the time I realized I was…
