Don’t even pretend that you’re not at least curious as to how this will turn out. 12-time Grammy nominees’ frontman, Marcus Mumford, recently told Style Magazine that they will explore the electronic side of music on their next album, while still doing “whatever feels soulful.” While going electronic would mark a huge shift in the overall sound of the group, who are known for bring folk rock into the mainstream, they would not be the first artists to do so. Ever since dance music started to take over America, everyone from Nicki Minaj to Taylor Swift have given it a try, and have been mostly commercially successful. What do you all think? Will this be a smash hit or a total flop?

It has been said by many that 2012 was the year that EDM truly took over and went mainstream, and Forbes annual “30 Under 30″ list certainly drove that point home. Grammy nominees and winners Skrillex, Calvin Harris, and Avicii have all managed to make the list this year, which is considered a collection of “young disruptors, innovators, and entrepreneurs…impatient to change the world.” The EDM heavyweights newest honors put them in the same ranking as the likes of pop superstars Katy Perry, Taylor Swift, One Direction, Bruno Mars, and Ke$ha, along with R&B/rap/hip-hop moguls Wiz Khalifa, Mac Miller, and Frank Ocean. Only time will tell where these talented artists will go, but we have no doubt that they will all be in the spotlight and changing the world for a long time to come. You can check out the full list of musicians along with other top lists here.

Throughout the years, people have heard story after story about absurd artists demands. From Axl Rose wanting a “square melon” in his dressing room to Eminem’s “need” for a Koi pond, not much shocks the general public anymore. Superstar DJ Diplo shattered any sense of security people had about the craziness of artists this past week when the rider for his Manhattan Pier 94 show was released. Media outlets are running rampant with claims saying that is both is and is not serious but honestly, with a list like this, we’re guessing that either way, the joke is on us. The full list of demands is as follows:
Two (2) Air Horns
Two (2) Inflatable Animals (Bonus points for endangered or extinct species)
Four (4) Blank Maxell Cassettes (New in Package)
One (1) Paddle Swimmin’ Pool
1983 G.I. Joe Storm Shadow Action Figure (New in Package)
One (1) Framed Picture of Diplo
One (1) Gorilla (Silverback is preferred, an Orangutan is also acceptable)
Ten (10) Magnum Condoms
One (1) Malawian Orphan

Two (2) Logs to sit on
Third season of Lost (on VHS tapes)
One (1) Parrot that is trained to say your name

Ah, romance in the digital age…it’s like watching a fairy tale unfold right in front of your eyes, isn’t it? Former “LA Ink” star (and ex-mistress of Jesse James,) Kat Von D got the surprise of her lifetime when on-again-off-again boyfriend Joel Zimmerman, AKA Deadmau5, proposed on twitter, and chose to share the intimate moment with his over 1.8 million followers. The deejay posted a picture of the ring with an attached message that read, “I can’t wait for Christmas so…Katherine Von Drachenberg, will you marry me?” Kat immediately tweeted back, “Mi corazon! Thank you all for the lovely congratulations! Please excuse me while I go squeeze the hell out of my fiance!”
…And they say that romance is dead.
