She's responded by saying that she resisted the lyrics, but was ultimately persuaded by the song's writer and non-native English speaker, Max Martin. Watch the songs lyric video in the replies.

You can check out our new interview with Stray From The Path here. The band will be heading out on a headliner with Counterparts, Expire, and My Ticket Home - dates can be found here. In the interview, we talk about Warped Tour, their partnership with Cop Block, social media, and an upcoming fourth album.
Yeah, we flipped our van and we waited on the side of the road in -10 degree weather and the cop finally shows up two hours later and he writes me a ticket because and I quote "If you flipped your van, you must've been speeding." So the guy wasn't even there, and he gave me a $400 ticket on the assumption of something. They just generate revenue, they're not even trying to protect...

Back in 2011/2012, Lorde featured on Characters, an album by her friends under the name And They Were Masked. She still went by her birth name at the time, and she seems to only have appeared on the tracks "Sands of John" and "Piece of Mind." The band claims to have been influenced by Fugazi, Massive Attack, At The Drive-In, The Mars Volta, PJ Harvey, and more. Check it out in the replies.

Our interview with Bad Suns can be found here.
We’re not so concerned about being lumped into anything because I think we’re confident in what this band is capable of doing. I don’t see us being a flavor of the week type thing because we feel like we have so much to say and so much to do, as opposed to just one trendy sound or something like that. I don’t feel that way about our band, but time can only tell.

It looks like a bunch of guitars once owned by the late producer Jerry Finn are for sale on eBay. This includes the guitar used to record Blink-182's Enema of the State.
Even though he loved the sound of this guitar, Tom refused to be photographed playing it because it was 'TOO PRETTY' according to Him.

In what might be my favorite piece of tour novelties ever, Drake and Lil Wayne have released a Capcom-developed app based on Street Fighter called "DvsLW" to accompany their upcoming "Drake VS. Lil Wayne Tour." The app will apparently allow the crowd at the tour to "power up" the rappers during a rap battle portion of the concert by button mashing. They're also including trading cards featuring the rappers in the tours VIP packages.
