Justin Timberlake Gets Knocked Out by Riley Keough in ‘TKO’ Video

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=FyXtoTLLcDk]

Love can be a total knockout, but not always in a good way, as Justin Timberlake discovers in the official video for ‘TKO.’

The spark between JT and his partner, played by actress and model Riley Keough, has truly been lost until passions flare during an argument and the couple indulge in a quickie on the kitchen counter.

That proves to be a bad move on Justin’s part as he literally gets knocked out by Riley, and later tied to a pickup truck driving through the desert which, as cinema has taught us, is never a good thing.

Produced by Timbaland, ‘TKO’ sits on Timberlake’s Billboard-topping ‘The 20/20 Experience — 2 of 2′ — his second No. 1 album of the year

The setlist for Drake’s OVO Fest was beyond ridiculous: Kanye, ASAP Rocky, and more!

Screen-Shot-2013-08-05-at-9.34.16-PMDrake hosted his annual OVO Fest at Toronto’s Molson Ampitheatre. He was joined by a number of special guests, including Kanye West, ASAP Rocky, Miguel, The Weeknd, Lil Wayne, TLC, Diddy, and J Cole, among others, leading to one especially mind-blowing setlist.

Kanye performed a trio of cuts, specifically “New Slaves”, “All of the Lights”, and “Can’t Tell Me Nothing”. According to a report on Twitter, he also told the crowd that Drake inspired him and Jay Z to record Watch the Throne. In turn, Drake said Kanye is the reason he’s rapping today.

ASAP Rocky joined Drake for “Fucking Problems” and also performed “Goldie” and “Wild For the Night”. Miguel accompanied Drake and J Cole for “Power Trip” and sang “Adorn” solo.

Check out a partial setlist below.

Notable Quotables From Yeezus That We Know You’re Going To Abuse On Social Media!

kanye-west-yeezus-650_0It’s happening.

A weekend before the June 18th release date put in place for Kanye West’s 6th album, Yeezus, the powers of the internet caught wind of a leak, and with the click of a download link everyone had access to Kanye’s lyrical ingenuity.

What exactly does that mean? It means that the raps of Kanye on Yeezus are now in the hands of the reckless youth and eager-to-be-relevant social media stunters who will tweet, Facebook, Instagram caption and sidewalk chalk the fuck out of every catchy line on the album before you even form a strong opinion on the body of work.

I’ve decided to round up all the most notable quotables from Yeezus that we know you’re going to abuse on social media. Consider this an accurate cheat sheet.

You’re welcome; now hurry up with my damn croissant!

——

TRACK 1: ON SIGHT

WHO WILL ABUSE THIS: The same men and women who through fits for bottle service just to Instagram P.O.V. photos of them standing on the couch.

LYRICS:

“Indian hair and no moccasins”

“Black timbs all on your couch again”

“And I know she like chocolate men. She got more niggas off than Cochran”

“No sports bra lets keep it bouncing”

TRACK 2: BLACK SKINHEAD

WHO WILL ABUSE THIS: The same person who currently tweets/Instagrams about their late night grind and frequently posts “sleep is the cousin of death,” “Vamp life,” or anything of the variety.

LYRICS:

“Pardon, I’m getting my scream on”

“Four in the morning, and I’m zoning they say I’m possessed, it’s an omen”

“I keep it 300, like the Romans 300 bitches, where’s the Trojans?”

“You niggas ain’t breathing you gasping.”

“These niggas ain’t ready for action.”

TRACK 3: I AM A GOD

WHO WILL ABUSE THIS: The self-absorbed professional on the rise who just happens to really be feeling themselves at the moment, and simply has no time to wait.

LYRICS:

“Hurry up with my damn massage.”

“Hurry up with my damn ménage.”

“Hurry up with my damn croissants.”

“And here’s a few snake-ass niggas to bite you.”

“Old niggas mentally still in high school.”

“Nobody else had swag, man, we the Rat Pack”

“I know he the most high But I am a close high”

TRACK 4: NEW SLAVES

WHO WILL ABUSE THIS: The forward thinking former Africana studies major, who also frequently posts links to conspiracy theories.

LYRICS:

“You see it’s broke nigga racism, that’s that “Don’t touch anything in the store” And this rich nigga racism, that’s that “Come in, please buy more.”

“Spending everything on Alexander Wang.”

“You see there’s leaders and there’s followers But I’d rather be a dick than a swallower.”

“Y’all ’bout to turn shit up. I’m ’bout to tear shit down. I’m ’bout to air shit out”

TRACK 5: HOLD MY LIQUOR

WHO WILL ABUSE THIS: Everyone and anyone who posts anything drinking/ smoking /partying related. Be ready to make way to the new “sunglasses and Advil” of our time.

LYRICS:

“I can’t handle no liquor But these bitches can’t handle me.”

“You say you know me, my nigga But you really just know the old me”

“I’m hanging on a hangover.”

“You love me when I ain’t sober. You love me when I’m hungover”

“Late night organ donor After that he disown ya”

“Soul mates become soulless”

TRACK 6: I’M IN IT

WHO WILL ABUSE THIS: Two grades of people will find themselves posting almost every lyric to this song. 1. The men who comment with “I would lick your butt” on Instagram photos, and 2. The women who post those very “butt on the sink” Instagram photos.

LYRICS:

“Damn your lips very soft as I turn my Blackberry off and I turn your bath water on and you turn off your iPhone”

“Your titties, let ’em out, free at last. Thank God almighty, they free at last”

“Eatin’ Asian pussy, all I need was sweet and sour sauce.”

“Tell your boss you need an extra hour off”

“She cut from a different textile”

“Black girl sippin’ white wine”

“They be balling in the D-League”

“I be speaking Swaghili”

TRACK 7: BLOOD ON THE LEAVES

WHO WILL ABUSE THIS: This song is so dope, I am actually giving a free pass to anyone and everyone to utilize lyrics to it on social media…as long as they know the actual meaning behind the phrase “strange fruit.”

LYRICS:

“I’m holdin’ down the summer now.”

“These bitches surroundin’ me All want somethin’ out me”

“We could’ve been somebody ‘stead you had to tell somebody.”

“Let’s take it back to the first party when you tried your first molly”

“I don’t give a damn if you used to talk to Jay-Z. He ain’t with you, he with Beyoncé, you need to stop actin’ lazy”

“She Instagram herself like #BadBitchAlert”

“He Instagram his watch like #MadRichAlert”

“Two-thousand-dollar bag with no cash in your purse”

TRACK 7: GUILT TRIP

WHO WILL ABUSE THIS: Some salty men and women who need fresh subliminals to take shots at their significant others, and the singles who are out enjoying the fancy things, on someone elses’ dime.

LYRICS:

“Fancy like the things she likes. She lives her life”

“Pour a little champagne, cranberry vodka”

“I hit her with Jamaican dick, I’m the new Shabba”

“Star Wars fur, yeah I’m rockin’ Chewbacca”

“If you love me so much then why’d you let me go?”

TRACK 8: SEND IT UP

WHO WILL ABUSE THIS: Anyone with confidence levels measurable to Yeezy’s…typically while they are posting photos of pre-games or reminiscing on a night out the morning after.

LYRICS:

“Success got ’em jealous”

“Last night my bitches came in twos”

“The greatest shit in the club Since “In Da Club””

“I be going hard, I got a name to prove.”

“And her heart colder than the souls of men”

“Louboutin on the toes again”

TRACK 9: BOUND 2

WHO WILL ABUSE THIS: The people tweeting Send It Up and Bound 2 will be one and the same, just looking to turn up at high octaves and stunt on social media with pre-recorded lyrics to match. Can’t be mad at that.

LYRICS:

“When a real nigga hold you down, you supposed to drown”

“They ordered champagne but still look thirsty”

“Rock Forever 21 but just turned thirty”

“This that red cup, all on the lawn shit”

“Got a fresh cut, straight out the salon, bitch”

“One good girl is worth a thousand bitches”**

Okay bye now!

Out at Lady Gaga with 5FM

5FM and 4th Street Wines recently invited me as a vip guest to the Lady Gaga Born This Way Ball. I’m not a Gaga fan but hey, i went.

The invite came with an indemnity form which i found quite surprising. Guess they don’t want a Linkin Park and Lucozade situation happening.

The 4th Street and 5FM vip suites were insane looking. Lavish throughout! The exclusive hospitality really helped with the long wait we had to endure for Gaga to come on stage.

I must say that she is a performer of note! She came out with a horse and out of a vagina- who does that?

As i am enjoying my 4th Street sweet rose, she stops during one of her songs and says “i am not a man, i am not a woman, i am not a human. I am here to take over the South African government”. Whoa!!!

A big thanks to 5FM and 4th Street wine though.
