She took nine out of ten!
In between an infectious chopped-and-screwed chorus, Kid Sister makes it absolutely clear that her acrylic nails are Not. To Be. Fucked With.
His self-titled debut record may be one of the only music-business success stories this year, but members of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences just couldn't bring themselves to nominate Chris Daughtry for Album of the Year today.
Plus industry news on Tom Petty, Kanye West, and poor, wretched Cary Elwes.
Last December, daredevil Evel Knievel filed a lawsuit against Kanye West over West's video for "Touch the Sky" in which the rapper plays "Evel Kanyevel" and tries to jump over a canyon on a motorcycle.
Obviously! It's not like he's some kind of egomaniac or something!
Plus: News about John Legend!
Plus: News about Cloverfield and Star Trek!
Plus: What's Brett Ratner not up to?
Plus new songs by the Verve and Wu-Tang Clan!
Plus: New music from Kanye West and Ted Leo!
Plus: Music from Radiohead and Sondre Lerche!
Chris Cornell Sings in French and Germans sing in German!
The results are in and, as predicted, Kanye wins. According to Nielson SoundScan, his Graduation is the No. 1 album in the country, topping the inordinately crappy Curtis by 50 Cent, who had promised to retire if he were outsold.

Just in case the stench of corny marketing hasn't yet reached your rap-loving nostrils, both 50 Cent and Kanye West have new CDs out today. Who will sell more copies?
50 Cent, Kanye, and murder!
Yep, more Kanye.
Of the two major hip-hop releases that leaked today, Curtis is — as expected — the lesser album.
