In an interview with Billboard, Carly Rae Jepsen talks about never having another huge "Call Me Maybe" type single.
Another "Maybe" may never present itself, but Jepsen doesn't mind. Meeting expectations is no longer on her agenda. " 'Call Me Maybe' was such a gift, but I don't need that to happen again," she says. "I wanted to be brave and [record] music that was really me rather than just putting out what I thought would sell. I would've regretted more not doing what I did -- *making a passion project come to life."

Earlier this morning ROMP had posted a message on Facebook stating that they had asked their drummer to leave the band due to some allegations made against him. That post was then deleted when, apparently, one of the drummer's parents threatened legal action against the band. Bad Timing Records will be donating all proceeds from the band's latest EP to RAINN for the rest of the year.

Dan Campbell of The Wonder Years is running some fantasy football leagues for charity this year. All of the money will be donated to RAINN. It looks like sign-ups went so fast he's had to cap it for now.

Andrew McMahon is now 10 years cancer free. He's started a 72k Challenge to raise money for the Dear Jack Foundation.
There are 72,000 newly-diagnosed adolescent and young adult patients each year in the population that ranges from 15 to 39. While many consider these to be the most formative years of a person’s life, this population suffers a well-documented deficit in research and attention from the cancer community. This shortfall has lead to a 30-year stagnation in the improvement of AYA survival rates compared to all other age demographics.

What we want to do is raise a dollar for every one of the 72,000 adolescents and young adults that will be diagnosed this year.

Dee Barnes has written an essay for Gawker titled "Here's What's Missing From Straight Outta Compton: Me and the Other Women Dr. Dre Beat Up," detailing her experience being assaulted at the hands of Dr. Dre and her reaction to the new N.W.A. biopic Straight Outta Compton, which ignores Dre's violence towards women entirely. One of the most disturbing pieces of information is that the Compton director F. Gary Gray was the cameraman filming the interview between Barnes and Ice Cube that led to her assault. I can not encourage you to read the entire piece here enough.

Sharky Laguana, writing for Medium:
The reality is only some of your money is paid to the artists you listen to. The rest of your money (and it’s probably most of your money) goes somewhere else. That “somewhere else” is decided by a small group of subscribers who have gained control over your money thanks to a mathematical flaw in how artist royalties are calculated. This flaw cheats real artists with real fans, rewards fake artists with no fans, and perhaps worst of all communicates to most streaming music subscribers a simple, awful, message: Your choices don’t count, and you don’t matter.
