Finally, Rivers Cuomo Duets With iCarly

Weezer front man Rivers Cuomo has collaborated with the star of Nickelodeon's "iCarly," Miranda Cosgrove, on a track for a new EP she plans to release March 15. Naturally. The song is called "High Maintenance." Rumors about the collaboration have been floating around for a little while, but Cosgrove confirmed it today: "My part of the song is this girl who's high maintenance, and Rivers is this guy who's having to put up with it. He's really cool." The two met through hitmaker Dr. Luke. In as many ways as this makes no sense (40-year-old indie rock icon duets with 17-year-old kid TV star?), it also makes a lot of sense: Cuomo likes TV for children, he's always had an unabashed love of pop hits and celebrities, and he has sung about age-inappropriate relationships! It's all coming together now. [Billboard]
