Watch Joey Bada$$ spin a Prince cover with ‘When Thugs Cry’


Rapper Joey Bada$$ put his own spin on a Prince classic on Friday, with a cover dubbed “When Thugs Cry.”

Performed at Australian radio station triple j on Friday, for the popular, weekly “Like a Version” cover songs segment, the Brooklyn artist paid tribute to The Purple One. 

“To this day my mum is the biggest Prince fan, she always played Prince around the house, put me on to Prince at such an early age. Me and her we used to always sing “When Doves Cry” together, so I made my own version. It’s called “When Thugs Cry,” he told triple j.

Joey Bada$$ is currently touring Australia, performing at Melbourne’s Sugar Mountain festival in Melbourne alongside Actress, A.B. Original, Jamila Woods and more on Saturday, Jan. 20. Read more…

Top 10 last-minute half-term holiday deals

Looking for a family break but no time to browse? Our pick of late deals in Europe and further afield will ease the way to a February escape

Cyprus is one of the most popular winter sun destinations in Europe. In February it won’t be hot and the sea temperature will be a bracing 16C-17C but it’s a lot warmer than northern Europe and in many ways more pleasant without the summer crowds. Base yourself in Paphos and think of this as a sunny city break, rather than a week on the beach. The harbour city, in the west of the island, has a wealth of Greco-Roman and medieval sites including the Kato Paphos Archaeological Park, a fortress, and an old town that was revamped for the city’s stint as joint European Capital of Culture in 2017. Stay at the beachfront Amphora Hotel and Suites, which has views of the harbour and a pool and is within walking distance of the castle and other sights.
£428pp for seven nights’ B&B including return flights departing Gatwick 11 February for 7 nights, book through onthebeach.co.uk

Tide Pod pizza looks terrible, and everyone just stop it already


Can we simmer down and can it with the Tide Pods already?

It was semi-fun and highly poisonous for a while, but if we see one more edible Tide Pods variation we might just burst a blood vessel.

Oh! Here’s a pizza version!

Hopping aboard the Tide Pods meme bandwagon, noble Brooklyn crusader Vinnie’s Pizzeria is attempting to curb the trend of moronic daredevils consuming laundry detergent that apparently resembles candy. 

They’re making “Pied Pods,” stuffed with mozzarella cheese and pepperoni, topped with blue-dyed cheese “for that hypnotic pizzaz.” Read more…
