Watch Katy Perry, Migos' Campy, NSFW 'Bon Appetit' Video

Katy Perry is seasoned and served as a sexy chicken cutlet in the NSFW “Bon Appétit” video. Rap trio Migos and Kogi restaurateur Roy Choimake appearances in the bizarre clip.

The video opens with a circle of male chefs brandishing steak-knives cutting Perry out of plastic wrap. She’s tossed into flour where they knead and massage her body like dough. In the kitchen, vegetables are tossed on top of Perry before she’s thrown into a stew. Chef Roy Choi bastes and decorates the pop star-turned-cutlet.

In a dimly lit club/restaurant, Perry lays on a platter as the patrons hungrily take their seats at the table. In the VIP section, the Migos rappers are surrounded by stacks of cash and other luxuries, before revealing that they’ve been conspiring with Perry the whole time to help her (the meal) break free. The chefs tie up and blindfold the guests while covering them with spices.

The Last Word: Bonnie Raitt on Blues Heroes, Father John Misty, Trump 'Dismay'

Bonnie Raitt was a little nervous before she and James Taylor played Boston’s Fenway Park in 2015, a venue bigger than she’s used to performing at. “The sound was great. I saw what a difference those high-def screens make. There wasn’t a bad seat in the house. It wasn’t alienating for people. It was such a great event, to put us two old fogies together.” This summer, the two will hit more stadiums, including Chicago’s Wrigley Field and San Francisco’s AT&T Park. Touring is just one of Raitt’s full-time jobs, which also include heavy activism for causes ranging from Standing Rock to getting musicians paid. Raitt spoke with Rolling Stone from her Northern California home about several of those topics, how to relax, her childhood growing up Quaker and what she learned from being dropped from her record label.

How do you relax when you’re at home in California?
Usually I spend the afternoon hiking. I love Marin County because there are a couple of dozen beautiful hikes within 30 minutes. Then I usually do an hour-and-a-half yoga class with one of my girlfriends – either Skyping or at one of our houses. That’s been really keeping me in shape the last five years. I also like having friends over to watch Netflix at night. I try not to watch anything too political in the evening – I don’t want to get too upset right before bed.

What did you take away from growing up Quaker?
It’s part of the reason I’m drawn to spending so much time in nature. Unlike being in a cathedral or having to look at icons – not to put anyone else’s religious practices down – being in nature is a spiritual connection for me. God – right now there’s a little squirrel in the tree looking right at me! Growing up, we worked hard to figure out what we could do to give back and to find peaceful ways to resolve conflicts around the world. A lot of my values come from that.

Your dad, John Raitt, was a legendary Broadway actor. What advice did he give you?
“Make every night opening night.” It doesn’t matter whether you’re playing Topeka, Kansas, or you’re playing on Broadway – that audience deserves the very best you have.

You dropped out of Harvard to play with several classic blues artists. What did you learn from them?
By my junior year I was opening for Mississippi Fred McDowell and John Hammond Jr. I was friends with the guy who booked a lot of my blues heroes. I fit on the bill because I was different and I could play a little bit of everything. I learned how to put a set together.
 I learned from Mississippi Fred McDowell in particular – playfulness, and passion, how to go back and forth between rock and something mournful.

What’s the most indulgent purchase that you’ve ever made?
I love taking my friends out 
to restaurants and putting together interesting groups of people. While some might say, “That’s too many people,” it’s an extravagance and I’m happy to do it. When I go out here, it’s more with activists. But in New York or L.A., I hang out with a lot of musicians.

What do you like about hanging out with musicians?
They get the joke. We call everyone else “civilians.” There’s a certain twisted sense of humor that comes with rock & roll musicians. A lot of them are professional partiers. We don’t have to go to bed if we don’t want to. So it’s constantly like going to never-never land in some ways. Even though we’re older, we still feel like we’re getting away with something.

“Not only is Father John Misty handsome, but he’s talented and hilarious.” 

You were dropped from Warner Bros. in the early Eighties. What did that experience teach you?
Be with a company that really likes you! [Laughs] I’ve been a pretty savvy businesswoman since the beginning – I admit that I’m probably more of a businesswoman than I am an artist. I learned by watching people get ripped off. When I got involved with the Rhythm & Blues Foundation, I found out that all my record collection – my favorite artists – had never really received royalties.

Which young artists inspire you?
I’m really digging Father John Misty. I caught a couple of his late-night performances that he did recently, and I think he’s really smart and the kind of satire we really need right now. It took me a minute to realize that he’s playing a deliberate character – but the more I see him, the more I like him. Not only is he handsome, but he’s talented and hilarious. I was knocked out.

Did you have a favorite book as a kid?
To Kill a Mockingbird. When you’re a kid, you don’t know so much about the history: how the “First World” took over the rest of the world, the horrifying reality of slavery, what we did to Native Americans and how we took California and Texas. To Kill a Mockingbird was key in my awakening about the way the world really works.

You’re a longtime activist for causes like safe energy and getting money out of politics. How do you keep hope alive in the Trump era?
It’s a daily challenge to keep the fight going. There’s an expression that I first heard from Black Lives Matter, which is that people are “woke.” The election woke people up that we can’t be complacent. Election Day was my birthday, the last night of a nine-month tour. I’d gotten birthday cards saying, “For your present I’m giving you the first female president.” I came offstage and saw the faces of the people backstage reacting to the results. Then I went back out and sang “I Can’t Make You Love Me.” It was good to be able to do an extremely sad song. It was hard to contain my shock and dismay. But I’m encouraged by how upset people are.

Watch Phoenix Play Fake Italian TV Show in Wild 'J-Boy' Video

Phoenix stage a faux TV show performance in their new video for “J-Boy,” the first single off the French rock act’s upcoming LP Ti Amo.

In the video, the band serves as musical guest on a fictional Italian show Ti Amo Special. Following a minute-long Italian language introduction – where the band are compared to the Velvet Underground and Kraftwerk – Phoenix launch into their new song, providing a preview for fans who will see the band on their summer tour.

Following the performance, Phoenix and Ti Amo Special‘s hosts sit down for a celebratory glass of wine. Phoenix also recently performed “J-Boy” on an actual television program, The Tonight Show. Ti Amo is due out June 9th. 

On Thursday, it was revealed that Phoenix would replace Frank Ocean at the Hangout Music Festival after that singer canceled his headlining gig due to “production delays.” Ocean similarly canceled his Sasquatch appearance the following weekend; he was replaced by LCD Soundsystem.

Review: Paramore's 'After Laughter' Triumphs Via Shiny Pop, Moody Lyrics

Paramore’s giant hooks and soaring vocals have often been accompanied by a withering worldview – their rip-roaring breakthrough single “Misery Business” was a poison-pen letter to a romantic rival, while “Ain’t It Fun,” the Top Ten single from their 2013 self-titled album, blended the gospel-assisted bounce of “Like a Prayer” with a firm trust-no-one stance. The tension between sugar-spun pop hooks, the acrobatic soprano of lead singer Hayley Williams and an arm’s-length take on the world has placed Paramore at the head of music’s post-millennial class. They simmer on After Laughter, their first album since that 2013 offering and their reunion with drummer Zac Farro, whose acrimonious departure from the band in 2010 presaged their fuller turn from the rock world into pop.

What “pop” can be in 2017 is open to question, and on After Laughter Paramore thankfully decides to junk large chunks of the concept as it’s currently practiced. (“I can’t imagine getting up there and playing a Max Martin song – at that point we might as well just stop,” guitarist Taylor York told The New York Times in April, shortly after the album was announced.) Instead, they embrace “pop” as a musical vibe, with a record that’s so sunshine-bright it gives off a glare at times, rooted in fleet basslines and beats made for open-road drives and solo bedroom dance parties. The hooks are big and the detailing is sublime, at times borrowing from unexpected sources. York’s highlife-inspired arpeggios add bursts of color to the manic “Told You So” and the freestyle-jam-in-disguise “Hard Times”; “Rose-Colored Boy” nicks its swinging synthpop from Scritti Politti’s Cupid & Psyche 85 arsenal; “Pool” shimmers like a mirage on a blazing day, its countermelody recalling a Doppler-ed ice-cream truck’s chime. The ballad “26” sighs into its lush strings, an older-and-wiser version of the twangy 2009 track “The Only Exception.” “No Friend,” the menacing second-to-last track that lets Williams off the hook on vocal duties and hands the mic to MeWithoutYou frontman Aaron Weiss before burying him in a cacophony of rumbling bass and frantic guitars, has a persistent lightness. 

But while the surfaces of After Laughter might glint, Hayley Williams’ lyrics evince a weariness that makes that brightness seem garishly empty. “All that I want/Is to wake up fine,” she sings on the opening salvo “Hard Times,” a track that also shouts out “My little rain cloud/Hanging over my head.” Things don’t get much sunnier from there – fake friends abound; “26” pivots on a vision of love that’s assuming eventual doom; “Idle Worship” rides its titular homonym to comment on fame. Williams’ voice is in gorgeous form, providing even more of a contrast to the stunning acridity of lyrics like “I’m gonna draw my lipstick wider than my mouth/And if the lights are low they’ll never see me frown,” from the gently rolling “Fake Happy.”

After “No Friend,” where Weiss shouts doom-and-gloom metaphors from beneath the band’s noisy rubble, After Laughter comes down with “Tell Me How,” a stutter-step ballad that allows Williams’ voice to curl around and into expressions of anxiety that sound impossible to quiet. It’s a fitting closer for After Laughter, a gorgeously produced, hook-studded record with cocked-eyebrow trepidation adding a jittery edge – a combination that’s very of-the-moment in 2017, even if it veers outside of pop’s rigid lines.

Harry Styles, Paramore, Zac Brown Band and 18 More Albums to Hear Now

Rolling Stone Recommends:

Harry Styles, Harry Styles
The searching solo debut from One Direction’s rakish heartthrob “digs so deep into classic California mellow gold, you might suspect his enigmatic new tattoos that say ‘Jackson’ and ‘Arlo’ refer to Browne and Guthrie. … The whole album has the personal yet witty spirit of the cover photo, where a topless Harry has a moment of doubt and pain in a bathtub full of pink unicorn tears,” writes Rob Sheffield in our four-star review.

Paramore, After Laughter 
With drummer Zac Farro back in the fold, Paramore “embrace ‘pop’ as a musical vibe with a record that’s so sunshine-bright it gives off a glare at times,” writes Maura Johnston. The album’s big hooks, fleet basslines and intricate detailing – which includes highlife guitar arpeggios and ice-cream-truck-inspired countermelodies – contrasts, however, with the lyrics sung by Hayley Williams, which possess “a weariness that makes the music’s brightness seem garishly empty.”
Hear: Amazon Music Unlimited / Apple Music / SoundCloud Go / Spotify / Tidal

Juanes, Mis Planes Son Amarte
The heady concept album by this Colombian rock legend combines “the blues of loneliness with the funk of desire and tripping-rock vibrations in a stark deep-soul music – Juanes channeling the prime solo George Michael and my favorite Seventies records by the American R&B icon Donny Hathaway while facing forward with self-assurance,” writes David Fricke.

Colter Wall, Colter Wall
It’s a boom time for inspired renegade country acts, but this twentysomething from Saskatchewan is something else. Namechecking Jimmie Rodgers’ “Blue Yodel #9” and a laundry list of abusable substances in a boomy baritone pitched between Johnny Cash and a smoke-cured Kris Kristofferson, he unspools vivid story-songs about “loners and no-account stoners,” guided by little more than foot-stomp percussion and Travis-picked acoustic guitar. Producer Dave Cobb shows his mastery by mostly staying out of the path of this talented freight train. One helluva debut. Will Hermes
Hear: Amazon Music Unlimited / Apple Music / Spotify / Tidal

Pwr Bttm, Pageant
Finally: a great punk-pop anthem with the chorus “answer my text, you dick!” – how did it take so long? The second LP by the upstate New York duo ups the ante on their debut’s genderqueer playfulness with a new sense of mission, right on time for the Trump era. It also varies their sonic palette: The title track is a tender, gender-dysphoric acoustic ballad; “New Trick” is a come-on that crunches like Nirvana. Will Hermes

Various Artists, The Bob’s Burgers Music Album
Fox’s animated delight Bob’s Burgers derives a lot of its joy from music – whether its characters are throwing down pitch-perfect homages to sleaze-adjacent Quiet Storm (“Lifting Up the Skirt of the Night”) and strummy boy-band balladry (“Coal Mine”) or putting on dueling musical adaptations of Working Girl and Die Hard. This omnibus of songs from the show’s first six seasons has cameos by the likes of St. Vincent and Magnetic Fields mastermind Stephin Merritt, but for the most part the spotlight rightfully shines on the greasy spoon-themed sitcom’s superlative cast, who take to their roles with an affectionate gusto that gives even the most absurd situations an extra side of heart. And, as befitting a show featuring Dan Mintz’s eternally rear-obsessed Tina Belcher, there are lots of butts, too. Maura Johnston 
Hear: Amazon Music Unlimited / Apple Music / BandcampSpotify / Tidal

Also of Note:

B.o.B, Ether
The Atlanta MC’s indie debut features cameos from fellow Georgians Young Thug and Young Dro as well as “Big Kids,” a swirling ballad with assists from CeeLo Green and Usher.   
Hear: Amazon Music Unlimited / Apple Music / SoundCloud / Spotify / Tidal

Zac Brown Band, Welcome Home
The fifth album by the genre-melding, stadium-filling country act is a “back-to-basics collection of odes to the band’s musically humble roots” that at times comes off “as an anxious defense of fame and fortune, a reactionary right-turn in response to the mixed reviews the band received for their most recent global pop-grab,” writes Jonathan Bernstein.

Dreamcar, Dreamcar
No Doubt’s Tony Kanal, Tom Dumont and Adrian Young hook up with AFI frontman Davey Havok for a full-length that straddles the 1980s and the 2010s. “There are a lot of things on the album that are Eighties-influenced,” Kanal told Rolling Stone, “but I feel like what we’ve created is something very fresh and new, too. You have to find that balance, and I think we’ve achieved that.”

Girlpool, Powerplant
On their second album (and first for Anti-), Los Angeles duo Girlpool shakes the plainspoken Polaroids and innocent melodies of their 2015 debut. They’ve instead evolved into a taut, breezy, mildly shoegaze-y indie rock band in the vein of Throwing Muses, Blake Babies or Gish-era Smashing Pumpkins – with drums and all! Growing up and expanding their palette has ultimately dulled their impact a bit, but their emotion-examining lyrics are still remarkable avant-twee: “1-2-3, will you list it off to me?/How you’re sorry you feel weird in a jubilation dream.” Christopher R.

New Kids on the Block, Thankful
Released just in time for their Total Package Tour with Paula Abdul and Boyz II Men, this EP’s highlights include “Hard (Not Lovin U),” a slick R&B come-on that puts Jordan Knight’s falsetto front and center, and the “99 Luftballoons”-interpolating salute to the Eighties “Still Sounds Good.”

Todd Rundgren, White Knight
The pop wizard’s latest LP has a guest list as long and varied as his career – Swedish pop upstart Robyn, alt-industrial titan Trent Reznor, and funk omnivore Dâm-Funk are only a few of its guests. “He seems to work best with Seventies peers like Joe Walsh, Daryl Hall and Donald Fagen, whose smooth Donald Trump parody ‘Tin Foil Hat’ is a timely highlight,” writes Jon Dolan.

Son Lux, Remedy
Son Lux founder Ryan Lott’s cacophonous compositions have made him a favorite among new-music appreciators and pop aficionados, with his roster of admirers including heavy hitters like Lorde (who appeared on Son Lux’s 2014 EP Alternate Worlds) and Fall Out Boy (who interpolated his jittery “Lost It to Trying” on their 2015 cut “Fourth of July”). The EP, which benefits the Southern Poverty Law Center, buries gorgeous details in its twisty, tension-filled songs; synth blooms on “Dangerous,” bouncing-ball bass on “Part of This.” The closing title track resolves its instrumental chaos with a choir of more than 300 fans singing the openhearted, optimistic refrain, “Find your voice/In the sea of surging bodies and breath/To form a melody/To find a remedy” – a full-throated vote in favor of conquering the darkness. Maura Johnston

Paramore Settle Lawsuit With Former Bassist

A day before Paramore released their new LP After Laughter, the band tidied up some legal matters after reaching a settlement with their former bassist and founding member Jeremy Davis. 

In December 2015, Paramore announced that Davis had parted ways with the group, leaving – at the time – Hayley Williams as the band’s lone original member. Three months later, Davis sued his former bandmates, with the bassist arguing that he had been omitted from songwriting credits and their respective royalties from the band’s self-titled album, which included the 2013 hit “Ain’t It Fun.”

Davis also claimed he was a partner in Paramore’s Varoom Whoa, the band’s business entity owned by Williams. The band, however, argued that Davis was simply an employee and not eligible for royalties from sales, merchandising and touring, the Tennessean reports.

Prior to Paramore’s tour-opening hometown gig in Nashville Thursday, the band’s lawyer said that “everything has been resolved and settled” with regard to the lawsuit. Terms of the settlement were not revealed and a rep for the band did not immediately reply to a request for comment.

Davis’ exit marked the second time band members have left Paramore under less-than-cordial terms; in interviews following his departure, Davis accused Williams of “backstabbing” him.

In 2010, brothers Josh and Zac Farro acrimoniously left Paramore. However, seven years healed old wounds as Zac rejoined the band for After Laughter.

In other Paramore news, the Strokes-covering band announced their third annual Parahoy! Festival aboard a cruise ship will take place April 6th to 10th, 2018. The cruise will feature an acoustic mini-set, a Q&A session, karaoke with the band and more.

See DNCE, Nicki Minaj Play Spin the Bottle in 'Kissing Strangers' Video

DNCE and Nicki Minaj join forces for the playful “Kissing Strangers” video. Marc Klasfeld directed the Seventies-set clip.

The video opens up on lead singer Joe Jonas who is sitting back and putting on his headphones. He is then seemingly transported to the Seventies where he is biking around a suburb handing out fliers for a party. At a convenience store, he meets up with bassist Cole Whittle who does exactly as the song implies — kisses a stranger in a photobooth. At the party, the rest of the band joins in on the fun, playing spin the bottle and seven minutes in Heaven. As the band performs in a bar, Nicki Minaj joins the party and pulls Jonas in for an almost-kiss.

DNCE released their self-titled debut album in November 2016. “Kissing Strangers” is the funk-pop group’s first non-album single since the LP’s release. The band has yet to reveal if the new track is off a forthcoming sophomore album.
