I feel like most days there is one website or blog in particular that I turn to for a good chunk of my links for the day. Today that site is Idolator, which fed me many of these stories, including this Rolling Stone profile of Coldplay and its ridiculous cover photo (above).

Pitchfork talked to Dan Boeckner, who wrote all the best songs on the new Wolf Parade album, about his favorite things.

So let me get this straight: Fatboy Slim has started recording as BPA so that he won't be pigeonholed. And he made a song with David Byrne and Dizzee Rascal with a video that features blurred-out naked people.

Speaking of 90s flashbacks, Coolio was arrested this week.

Scott Storch is wanted too.

Wanna spend a day in the life of Lily Allen?

George Michael is retiring from live music. Idolator offers a tribute.

AV Club remembers Wet Hot American Summer.

This seems like kind of a catty move by Katherine Heigl.

Status Ain't Hood chimes in on Wale's Seinfeld-themed Mixtape About Nothing.

Apparently it's Angelina Jolie Q&A season.

R. Kelly's trial is wrapping up.

Lastly, Idolator laments the proliferation of "Starbucks soul," and to prove it, they present this clip of Jamie Lidell on Conan.
