Procrastinate on This: Jay-Z is a Big Fan of Breast-feeding and Screen-to-Stage Musicals

You know, March kind of sucks. I say this, b/c in most places it rains a lot. Also, there are no holidays whatsoever in March, save St. Patrick’s Day — and I can’t drink this year. I don’t want to call the month useless, but I am ready for it to be over and a bit sad that we’re only 13 days in. Anyway, here’s a bright spot. Some stuff to procrastinate on:

1. Wow, what do your music choices say about you? Apparently those who listen to classical, indie, the Beatles and U2 are above average. Those who listen to Justin Timberlake, Jay-Z and Beyonce are average or below-average. And those who listen to Lil Wayne are at the “rock bottom.” [Sun]

2. Future Moms: if you want to feel unsure and a little angry about breast-feeding and “the tyranny of the breast pump,”read this. [Jezebel]

3. Say good-bye to originality on Broadway. This is why one producer says that we’re seeing more and more screen-to-stage adaptations: Basically, audiences don’t want to pay to see original musicals — even though many of them are really, really good. [Producer’s Perspective]

4. Though I’m feeling all judgmental about the dearth of new musicals. I will totally go out of my way to see the upcoming Heathers: The Musical. Teenage suiciiiiide. Don’t do it! [The Hollywood Reporter]

5. Is no animal safe from Hollywood’s evil machinations? Introducing G-Force, a movie about super-agent gerbils. Only one female gerbil is on the team, and yes, she is super-sexualized — cue “Don’t You Wish Your Girlfried Was Hot Like Me?” — no really they use that song in the trailer. Because you’ve gotta teach girls that they’re only valued for their looks as early as possible. Thanks Disney.
