Tim McGraw on the Light We All Carry

If only you could have both, right? Jesus and whiskey, a preacher and a bartender, a jukebox and a choir, a proper baptism and barroom smoke, holy water and unholy water, honky-tonk angels and wings on fire. Then you’d really be able to get through getting over someone. Because you wouldn’t have to chose one or the other. So says Tim McGraw in the new video for his single […]

The biopic, which opens in theaters on Nov. 2, stars Rami Malek as Mercury. “I’ve seen it hundreds of times now, in fragments and eventually coming together, and it still gets me,” May told Classic Rock in a recent interview. “It’s very emotional.

Kanye West & Nicki Minaj Reunite For “Yandhi” Body-Shaming Track

Kanye West and Nicki Minaj are all set for a reunion. Kanye West, the eternal paradox. “Sick Fu*k” one minute, “love-spreader” the next.
