After receiving less than favorable reviews of her new single "Go" from her loyal fan base, Canadian singer-songwriter Grimes (or Claire Elise Boucher) has decided to scrap her entire new album and start from square one.
The song was originally written for Rihanna, according to The New York Times, so it has more of a pop/mainstream feel than Grimes' previous work. Overall, it’s a huge departure from her underground electronic sound fans have grown to ... Read More

That’s right, Christian radio talk show host Kevin Swanson recently discussed some clearly accurate and well-researched findings that showed “there are these little tiny fetuses, these little babies, that are embedded into the womb…” of women using birth control pills.

Unless you’re living under a rock (which somehow miraculously has internet access), you’re probably aware that today is Valentine’s Day. This means that the super-sappy love songs that make up so much of popular music are out in full force.
