Passenger Frolics with Half-Naked Office Workers in Video for "Scare Away the Dark"

Passenger, the British singer/songwriter who brought you the global hit "Let Her Go," is back with a brand new album called Whispers and a new single called "Scare Away the Dark."  "Let Her Go" was a pretty heartbroken and serious song, but Passenger himself -- who was born Mike Rosenberg -- is actually a pretty funny guy, as you can see from the new song's newly debuted video.

Iggy's "Fancy" Inspires "Pregnant" Parody

Iggy Azalea's #1 hit "Fancy" is about living it up in the fast lane, but a new parody video of the song imagines a much more mundane existence: being nine months' pregnant and miserable, unable to drink alcohol, eat sushi, or fit into your wardrobe, and being plagued by heartburn. The parody, called "I'm So Pregnant," stars a pregnant woman and a supporting cast, and features lyrics like, "I be Pre-G-G-O/Hope my water holds/did you get my push present?/Only two weeks to go," and "Still swollen cankles can't wait/got the whole world asking when my due date."  The chorus goes,…

Lorde Is Now "Lady Lorde" After British TV Show Buys Her a Royal Title

She'll never be royal -- or will she?  Lorde is apparently now "Lady Lorde" after a British TV show went to the trouble of buying her a lordship. Turns out you can buy such titles online for about 19 pounds, about 32 bucks.  You get an embossed certificate, and a deed for two square feet of land in England's Lake District.  During Lorde's appearance on the BBC's The One Show this week, the hosts, Matt Baker and Alex Jones, presented the singer with the certificate. "Oh my goodness. Is this real?" she asked.  "It's my first two feet of land! …

Ever since Sam Smith appeared on Saturday Night Live, the British singer's been making inroads on the U.S. charts.  Now, he's finally achieved a milestone: his first top 10 hit.  The "Stay with Me" singer is so surprised at his accomplishment that he's wondering if there's been an error.
