  • Since Prince released his song "Breakfast Can Wait" earlier this year, I haven't been able to look at breakfast the same. Now, to make my mornings even more awkward, we have a very sensual music video to enjoy. Sexualized breakfast foods are just the tip of the iceberg in this video, there's also lots of leather, a lady-Prince, and some pretty kick ass choreography. Enjoy. [SPIN]
    • UK duo THUMPERS have shared the lyric video for their brand new song, "Unkinder (A Tougher Love)." It's full of a bubbly energy that really speaks to their namesake. The alternative pop band recently signed with Sub Pop, and I'm excited to hear more from them. They are expected to release a full-length album next year. [Stereogum]
    • The viral video madness that is "The Fox" has finally made its way to the late night TV circuit. Ylvis performed their completely ridiculous song along with The Roots on Jimmy Fallon, and it was just as insane as you can imagine. Just seeing Questlove wearing cute, little fuzzy ears is enough to make this video a hit. [CoS]

    • Harlem rapper Azealia Banks has delivered a hard-hitting remix of Britney Spears' anthem "Work Bitch." It's just as intense as you would expect from Banks, while still serving up sassy, ridiculous lyrics. [Stereogum]
