Hip-Hop is evolving. There is an increasing amount of social awareness returing to the genre, which is a welcomed element for fans. Miami-based rapper, Jesse James, adds to this, as he has released a new video for his single "Outcast," featuring X-Factor's, David Correy. The song and video bring to light an issue rarely discussed in rap; bullying, and the repercussions of it. The brutally honest piece is a call to action to end bullying and harrassment, and to think about the effects those actions have on their victims. This is a must-watch for everyone who has been bullied, anti-bullying advocates, and most importantly, bullies themselves. This is a step in the right direction. Kudos to James and Correy for doing their part to spread the message. Watch the video below, and tell us what you think!
It's an awesome thing when a fad becomes a trend. But let's face it, fashion trends don't last forever. If you're lucky, 5 years will roll by, and some resemblance of what was in then will be in again. But what happens when the trend you're sporting now is stuck with you forever? This seems to be the case with the fashion world's latest bad ass trend, tattoos. From the chic runways of Paris, France to the hipster streets of Williamsburg in Brooklyn, New York-- tattoos have become the ultimate fashion accessory for both men and women.
Often small, and sometimes in the most intimate of places, women have adopted a tough yet romantic tattooing trend; using ink to rock risqué phrases, pretty limericks, and cute symbols. Celebrity fashionistas like Miley Cyrus and her funky "Da Vinci" heart done by celebrity tattoo artist, Kat Von D, is just an example. But no one compares to Rihanna and her stunning 19 titilating tatts, including the word "love" on her right middle finger and the image of the goddess "Isis" on her lower chest, just to name a few. Other famous tatted starlets include Katy Perry, Demi Lovato, and Selena Gomez.
The X Factor judge we hate to love has revealed that he's parterned up with Syco Entertainment, his joint venture with Sony Entertainment, to design a line of headphones called "X Headphones."
"I've tried all of them, literally every single one. Sony and I set out to create the best headphone in the world. We are absolutely blown away by these. With the X headphones, it's like being in the recording studio when the records are made. The sound is that clear," Cowell said in a statement. The headphones are going for a nifty $299 and will be featured throughout the X Factor season.

If a revolution was ever to take place in America, I can only hope that Rage Against The Machine will be playing in the background somewhere. Can you think of any other band that has been more connected to protesting or rising up for a cause in the past 15 years than Rage Against The Machine? I can't, so it only makes sense that Rage has done it again.
Tom Morello announced on the band website that if their single "Killing In The Name" is number one on the Christmas Week UK pop charts over the single from Simon Cowell's X-Factor," Rage would play a huge free concert in the UK to celebrate the victory of this historic people's campaign".
