While these animals are all very talented, they have nothing on my albino shih poo Kokomo, who learned the old “bang bang” trick years ago. Admittedly, the hamster is a slightly better actor so I’d nominate him for the Oscar. This compilation of dogs playing dead was put together by CompilarizTV, who were also the masters behind the sleeping dogs and babies laughing at dogs compilations.

When the superpowers at Glee decide to reinterpret your song, it’s a fairly good indication that people like your music. In this case, television show or not, the guys from Imagine Dragons are pretty excited about where their careers are headed. Not only have they won over the Gods of entertainment television, they’ve also gathered a group of pretty serious music fans. In spite of all their success, one thing never changes with bands, you always have to get someone out of jail. In this interview Dan chucks Ben under the bus and tells Jordan about how they had to bail him out of the big house.

You’re going to love this! Seriously though, the newest release from our Colorado homies 3OH!3 is really good. That’s why we figured a regular sit down interview wasn’t exciting enough for Nate and Sean. Their music video speaks for itself but there are a lot of people questioning whether or not 3OH!3 actually made those trick shots. That’s why we decided to test their skills at the best contest for any real games fanatic, our local carnival.
ANDPOP and Summit Entertainment are teaming up to give two winners a copy of the novel and soundtrack for fan-favourite The Perks of Being a Wallflower.
Written by Stephen Chobsky, the book is a funny and touching coming-of-age story about the dizzying highs and crushing lows of growing up. The movie, starring Logan Lerman, Emma Watson and Ezra Miller, also has a badass soundtrack that includes songs by The Smiths, David Bowie, New Order and Sonic Youth.
It’s easy to win!! Just fill out the form below and make sure to like our Facebook page.

Love and loss are pretty common subjects to write songs about. However, few people bring the theatrical drama to songs about heartbreak like Marina. Once again, @Jordans_life had a bit of a “Dr. Phil” moment with her and asked about her personal life. We’re not exactly sure about his motives here but Marina seemed into it. What do you think? Should some things be left private, or do you like when artists pour their hearts out? Let us know in the comments below.

Chris Richardson did his very first Twitter interview with ANDPOP’s @britt_mahaney. The “Joy & Pain” singer/songwriter and American Idol alum talked about his upcoming album, what he thinks of Nicki Minaj as an Idol judge and whether or not Tyga has taken him to Rack City.
Before we wrapped up the interview, we dared him to tweet us a photo. A lot of the fans were crossing their fingers for a topless pic (okay we were too) but we got an equally awesome mobster-chic pic. Check out the interview below!!
I have to say I’ve written so much about the great K-Pop god that is Psy lately that I’ve practically run out of adjectives for awesome. Psy made his second appearance on Ellen today with an epic performance of “Gangnam Style.” He wore a tuxedo and his trademark glasses, dancing with a bevy of white-clad dancers.
While we’re kind of missing Britney Spears from this equation, we love that Psy went out to the audience and danced with guests. But I have to warn you that overexposure to the track might burn you out. So take it easy.

I think the last and only time I live-tweeted some type of activity with my dad was back on Father’s Day when I took him to a board game cafe with my sister. The most rebellious things we did that day involved drinking high-calorie Nutella lattes and playing a mobster board game that involved fake guns, but other than that it was pretty Leave It to Beaver.
Snoop Dogg Snoop Lion’s son Corde “Spanky” Broadus’ quality time with dad involves smoking pot. The 18-year-old regularly tweets photos of him smoking but we don’t always getting a glimpse of his badass rapper dad.
Like father like son, right?
If you’re one of those fame-seeking baseball fans who likes to go to the game partially so you can get on the jumbo-tron, this is NOT how to do it. Unless you want the video to be immediately uploaded to YouTube so you can become a viral video star. Then go haead.
This fan made blowjob gestures behind home plate for nearly a full minute before the camera stopped rolling. We’re guessing the cameraman either didn’t notice or he thought “screw it,” this is way more interesting than what’s happening on home plate.

“Not Even the King” — Alicia Keys
After dabbling in the pop and hip hop scene, Alicia Keys goes back behind the piano in “Not Even the King,” the second single off her upcoming album, Girl on Fire. “Not Even the King” carries a special message: money alone doesn’t make you rich. The new, artsy lyric video for the single features positive, childlike paintings that reinforce Keys’ beautiful melody and gentle keystrokes. It’s a great track to remind you what matters most in life. “Girl on Fire” is released Nov. 27.
“Fall Down” — Diggy Simmons ft. Victoria Monet
Seventeen-year-old Diggy Simmons dropped “Fall Down” featuring Victoria Monet from his upcoming mixtape Out of This World. The track re-ignites beef between Diggy and J. Cole, who freestyled a rap about Diggy at a Kendrick Lamar show: “Picture me hating on a young n—a with talent/Album flopped, but it’s cool, he caked out on his allowance.” Diggy took the lyrics as a direct attack on him and came back with “Fall Down.” He raps: “Thought J. stood for Jermaine, not Jetsetter/ You see me and shook my hand, coppin’ pleas in person/ Now you act less than a man, mentioning me in verses.” Ouch!

We’ve watched our fair share of “Gangnam Style” remakes and parodies here at ANDPOP. Just last week, I feverishly compiled a list of the 15 best covers and literally couldn’t get the song out of my head for the rest of the weekend, much to the annoyance of my friends who had to humor me as I presented my horse-riding move.
There’s yet another parody this week. This time, Psy’s viral hit gets turned into “London Style,” showing off popular landmarks like the London Eye and Big Ben. Expect more covers… they probably won’t stop until every city on Earth produces at least one respectable “Gangnam Style” cover.
Watch it here:
With all the “Gangnam Style” parodies and tributes flowing off the Internet everyday, it’s been pretty difficult to keep up. We’ve seen parodies by lifeguards, beauty pageant contestants and even a quick dance blip starring Britney Spears and singer Psy himself.
That’s why we’ve put together this handy guide, featuring 15 of our favourite “Gangnam Style” parodies. Watch comic book anti-hero Deadpool storm the campus library and two guys trolling Chatroulette. You’ll never look at the iconic horse-riding dance the same way!

After some secret messages were exchanged through their music, rumours started circulating about a potential romance between Adam Young and Taylor Swift. We all know nothing really happened around Valentine’s Day but we’re still curious about what exactly went down. We asked Owl City about his musical flirting with Taylor Swift and a rather controversial blog post about changing his musical style.
Work training videos are usually pretty hard to get through because they’re so boring and LAME. However, every so often a video surfaces that we could watch over and over again because of its sheer awkwardness. At first, our reaction is:
But after our general bafflement and fear subsides, we realize it’s probably one of the most awesome videos we’ve EVER SEEN in our lives. I was lucky enough to find to work training gems today but I’m having a hard time deciding which one is more awesome. So we’re going to battle it out.
Contender One: Pier 1′s rap starring everyone
Description: This is a poorly written and performed rap by the “Pier 1 All-Stars” reminds me of when parents try to be “with it.” The song, which is called “Let’s Coaching,” is intended to train employees who want to make a “sale in the house” and features customers who look far to comfortable with their participation for me to be comfortable.
