With his new album Revival, Eminem has become the first artist ever to release eight consecutive albums that debut at number one on the Billboard 200. Going all the way back to The Marshall Mathers LP in 2000, Eminem has debuted at the top of the album chart with every single long-player he's released. Three other artists have racked up eight chart-topping debuts...just not consecutively. Those are JAY-Z, the Beatles, and the Rolling Stones. (Stereogum)

Roseanne lashes out at Lorde

Lorde surely expected some backlash over her decision to cancel an upcoming Israel concert...but she probably didn't guess that her highest-profile critic would be Roseanne Barr.

Here's why Oasis won't reunite

When the Gallagher brothers announced plans to get together over the holidays, some of their fans' dearly held hopes for an Oasis reunion may have flared up again. Don't get too excited, though: Noel Gallagher says the band won't be getting back together because "I don't particularly want to be a stadium rocker when I'm 50. I think it's undignified."

Doesn't Noel ever think differently when he sees a band like Guns N' Roses selling out massive venues like U.S. Bank Stadium? Nope, he told an interviewer from Music Feeds. "If Axl Rose or Slash or any of those guys were as good as me, they wouldn't f---in' be in Guns N' Roses."
