Report: Daft Punk unmasked at LAX

Posted by Emily Wright January 29, 2014 04:14 PM

The robots have been humanized.

Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, the French duo behind the Daft Punk, cleaned up at the Grammys on Sunday night, winning five awards -- all while wearing their infamous robot masks. The TSA wasn't so keen on the reflective, visor-clad get-ups and forced the pair to take them off before boarding a flight at LAX, according to a Tuesday TMZ report. Check out the video above for more details.

Do they look too normal? Yeah, we're going to keep pretending they're robots anyway.

TiŽsto pulls out stops for Boston fans before two deaths occur at NYC's Electric Zoo

Posted by Emily Wright September 2, 2013 11:41 AM

Dutch DJ TiŽsto played a successful set at the Ocean Club Friday night in Quincy before the weekend took a dark turn with two more suspected drug-related deaths at an electronic dance music show in New York City this weekend.

After visiting the Quincy venue, TiŽsto went on to play Electric Zoo in New York City Saturday night where two concert-goers died of a suspected drug overdose of MDMA, a pure form of ecstasy commonly referred to by its street name, Molly. Electric Zoo is an annual electronic dance music festival held during Labor Day weekend. The third day of the festival, Sunday, was canceled following these incidents.

M.I.A. has switched up her speaker-rattling single "Bad Girls" in recent days with not just one but two remixes featuring some of hip-hop's most fiery females. Days after dropping a woozy revamp with her spunky protégée Rye Rye and game-changing femcee Missy Elliott, she swapped out Rye for rising raptress Azealia Banks.
