Jon Stewart, Steve Carell and Stephen Colbert #breaktheinternet With Sultry #TBT Instagram Post

Stewart

Quick hashtag linguistics lesson for the uninitiated: #TBT stands for "Throwback Thursday", and accompanies pictures and videos of yesteryear for reminiscing and, more often, mockery; #breaktheinternet is referencing some bit of news, usually trivial, that inexplicably drives massive amounts of traffic and attention, Kim Kardashian's ass on the cover of Paper being one of the more recent examples.

All caught up? Good.

Yesterday the Instagram account for The Daily Show decided to try their hand at breaking the internet with a Throwback Thursday video from the golden years of Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert, and Steve Carell. The video features seduction, saxophone music, and an utter absence of shirts.

No more needs to be said, you just need to click through and watch the short video AFTER THE JUMP...

Screen Shot 2015-01-27 at 3.39.52 PM

In an interview with Popjustice music legend Giorgio Moroder revealed that he's working on Lady Gaga's next album and that he's working with several popstars on his own untitled album. Moroder, who worked with Daft Punk on their recent album Random Access Memories, revealed his next album is entirely composed of features from several different singers including popstars Charli XCX, Sia and Britney Spears. Moroder discussed Spears' song and is thinking of adding another singer to sing the bridge on the song; Popjustice recommended Lady Gaga and Moroder revealed that he's currently working with her on her next album and hopes that she'll feature on his next work as well.

Said Moroder:

"I was supposed to be in the studio with her a week ago, but I got a cold. I’ll see her when I’m back. I have about five or six tracks, just basic ideas. Drums, keyboard, bass. I’m going to be surprised, I think – I don’t have a clue about the way she’s recording. Will she play the piano? Will I?

"...This is for her new album – that’s the intention. I was hoping that maybe I can convince her to have one of the songs for my album. If I could convince her, well that would be incredible."

As for Moroder's own upcoming tracks, Popjustice called the track with Sia, Deja Vu, a "melodramatic, string-laded pop explosion of such devastating intensity that the crater it leaves will be visible from space," and Charli XCX's Diamonds a "noisy, clattering megabanger." Moroder refused to reveal the full name of Spears' song on the record but did reveal that he added new aspects to it that is "not on the original," indicating that the song isn't entirely new. 

Said Moroder:

"It's more than just a remake...I added quite a lot of stuff actually-one melody in the chorus, which repeats, and one bridge. It's old, but I consider it a new song.

Screen Shot 2015-01-27 at 3.44.59 PMSince Gaga was unable to meet with Moroder, Gaga's spent the weekend tearing up New York City with her best gal pals, posting pictures to her social media accounts of festivities from her best friend's bachelorette party.

Although last weekend was fun and games for Gaga, she's also been hard at work on her next album working with Bad Romance and Poker Face hitmaker RedOne, Diane Warren and Nile Rodgers who also worked with Daft Punk on Random Access Memories. Also rumors of a collaboration with Adele spread like wildfire after Gaga posted a pic of the two hanging out together, leading some to believe that the two discussed possible collaborations with each other.

Moroder just released a single from his upcoming feature album featuring Kylie Minogue called Right Here, Right Now and is currently available on iTunes. You can also watch the visually striking music video for Moroder's song 74 Is The New 24, released in November, where the disco pioneer proves that he can still hang with the best of EDM even at the age of 74, AFTER THE JUMP...

Screen Shot 2015-01-13 at 3.51.05 PM

Hints of Rihanna's return to the music scene are surfacing as the singer's cover of Madonna's classic Vogue surfaced this week reports OutAccording to U.K.'s Attitude, the cover is from 2008 and her vocal stylings sound reminiscent of her Good Girl Gone Bad days, which served as a guide track for a live performance. Rihanna's absence from the music scene and pop charts has fans and others anxious, and curious, about the release date of her next album, which many, including Rihanna, have dubbed #R8. The singer has dropped an album virtually every year since her debut album Music of the Sun in 2005, and her last album Unapologetic was released in 2012.

However, Rihanna's kept busy in the interim with her film career in a cameo role in 2014's Annie and one of the lead roles in DreamWorks' new animated film Home--set to debut on March 27, features on other artists songs including Shakira's Can't Remember to Forget You and world tours. Rumblings of a new album began in early 2014 after Rihanna left her label Def Jam to fully sign with Roc Nation and news of rising artist Kiesza writing new material for the artist. Rihanna posted a snippet of demo song Kiss it Better on her Instagram late last year and a rough demo of a song called World Peace leaked on the internet and was subsequently taken down. Crooner Sam Smith also let slip that Rihanna shared details with him about the new album stating that he's "excited," for it.

Notable fan Mina Gerges, a college student with 35,000 followers on Instagram, recreates famous photographs of female celebrities including Kim Kardashian's "Break the Internet" picture, Nicki Minaj, Beyonce and Rihanna and posts them on his Instagram.

Snoop Dogg Threatened with Lawsuit Over Transphobic Instagram Post

Snoop Dogg Instagram post

Snoop Dogg is not known as being one of the more homophobic rappers in the music industry; in fact, his song "Dove of Peace" that he performed with Elton John at the end of Sacha Baron Cohen's Bruno along with explicitly stating that he's cool with gay people seems to make him an outright ally.

And perhaps deep down he is, despite having previous instances of homophobia on the internet. What he is not, however, is sensitive to the discrimination and hate that the gay and especially trans community face on a daily basis. This insensitivity is highlighted by a now-removed Instagram photo of Cortez Booze, a caretaker at a senior care facility in Edgewater, Maryland with the caption, "Whose auntcle is this?"

The remark was tasteless and transphobic on its own, regardless of Booze's gender identity, but Snoop's followers, being members of the internet horde, escalated things by orders of magnitude by hurling slurs and hate directly at Booze. In response, Booze allegedly reached out to Instagram to have the post taken down, but when it remained up he consulted his lawyer to investigate a lawsuit against the notorious D-O-Double-G.

The Instagram post has since been taken down, but Snoop has made no public comment and for the moment Booze appears to still be investigating pursuing a lawsuit.
