Our friends at Pop & Hiss do a bang-up job in general, but we just noticed they've been covering a bunch of celebrity-style dish out of the music scene the past day or two.

Did you hear about Randy Jackson asking for Grammy voting help on Twitter? How about the part where it wasn't him doing the tweeting

And of course, to start the new year, Kanye West invoked the musical mojo of Kobe Bryant with an ALL CAPS MISSION STATEMENT on his blog. Also at that link, you'll find further discussion of the leaked song from Michael Jackson and Lenny Kravitz.

JoBros fans might take an interest ...

... in how Nick Jonas is doing as he gets all serious and spicy with his new band, the Administration.

Dang, just now I kept typing "the Association" instead of "the Administration" -- but I'm not that old, really. Close, but not quite.

But if hearing "the Association" makes you think, "Hey, where are my 45s?" -- well, we'll direct you to one last celebrity post over at Pop & Hiss: In honor of the 75th anniversary of Elvis Presley's birth, they have "King vs. King: Debating Elvis Presley's best songs."


And, oh, yeah, below you'll find a YouTube of "Windy" by the Association. Because I realize, yes, I really am that old at heart.

I even saw them in concert.

Take that, Nick Jonas.
