Remember that song Nicki Minaj teased at the MTV Europe Music Awards with Skylar Grey? Well, it’s here in full form. In “Bed of Lies,” she’s a lover scorned, calling out her ex for his infidelity and selfishness. She does so with “Balenciagas on [her] boots,” so something tells us she’ll walk away just fine.

There are three things we learned about Amy Adamsfrom her “73 Questions With…” feature on Vogue. 1. Her favorite television show is Girls. 2. Her daughter is the answer to anything involving love, joy, and pride. 3. Though she has an affinity for classical music, she wouldn’t mind strutting her stuff to Def Leppard’s “Pour Some Sugar on Me.” That almost makes up for the fact that she pinches a cute kid’s cheeks after coughing, repeatedly, at the end of the clip. Almost. [Huffington Post]
Let’s face it: as reliable as Uber is, it doesn’t always pass the test in terms of in-ride entertainment. A new partnership with Spotify is looking to change that.
