Upon looking into it, the Taylor Swift was awarded to Swift at the BMI Pop Awards “in recognition of her creative and artistic talent and influence.” This is like naming your college softball team after yourself.

Today Ice Cube turns 47. O’€™Shea Jackson is one of my favorite celebrities, so much so that I actually didn’€™t pursue an opportunity to have him on BRUNCH as much as I should have because I honestly thought it would have turned into The Chris Farley Show.

My favorite musicians are the ones who can adapt over and over and over again. It’€™s why Paul McCartney, Billy Joel and Sara Bareilles can do no wrong in my mind, as all three of them can do pretty much any subgenre of pop and make it sound convincing. (Billy Joel’€™s “Sting”€ voice isn’€™t that great, but that’€™s another story for another time.)

Ice Cube has adapted both on and off wax, going from a scary lyricist to a still-pretty-scary actor. Everyone knows the main staples of his career (“It Was a Good Day,” Barbershop, etc.), but here’€™s a stroll through some of the other various Ice Cubes, with it to be assumed that every video here is explicit and/or extremely inappropriate for work or pretty much any setting:

Horrifically insensitive to women Ice Cube (1988)

Horrifically insensitive to every person on the planet Ice Cube (1991)

Screenwriter/protagonist Ice Cube (1995)

Playing roles that you would assume Steve Martin or Eddie Murphy might play Ice Cube (2005) 

Actually working with Insane Clown Posse Ice Cube (2012)

Presenting a Grammy and then bouncing Ice Cube (2016)

Run the Jewels are on a Chance the Rapper-esque streak where they can do absolutely wrong right now. Need RTJ3 and I needed it yesterday.

Due to scheduling issues, I picked my spots for this spring’€™s Boston Calling. My priorities were Sia, Janelle Monae and, of course, Haim.

(Shouts to male musicians. Some of you are good, too.)

I saw other acts; Disclosure was underwhelming and Elle King’€™s talent (which is good) far outweighs her songs (which mostly aren’€™t).

Yet I finally started listening to Miike Snow recently (whom I missed at Boston Calling) and yowzers am I kicking myself for it.

Now on their third album, Miike Snow is automatically good because they’€™re Swedish and Swedish people are practically incapable of making bad music. Max Martin, ABBA, Yngwie Malmsteen, Robyn, Ace of Base, The Cardigans? Sweden is awesome. Suck it, Ted Cruz.

Like CHVRCHES, Miike Snow’€™s strength is that they consist of two great producers and a great singer. That’€™s a recipe for hits and only hits, which is exactly what “Genghis Khan” is.

So in diving into Miike Snow’€™s work, I realized that the two producers in the group are none other than Bloodshy & Avant, who happened to write and produce one of the single best pop records of the last 20 years.

In addition to “œToxic,€” Bloodshy & Avant have also written and/or produced a number of other Britney Spears songs (“Piece of Me,” “My Prerogative’€ and “Do Something’€™” among them) and have also done stuff for the likes of Madonna and Rob Thomas.

So yeah, these are giants of pop making great gigantic pop music. Don’€™t be an idiot like me. Listen to them immediately and proceed to get down.
