The weekend used to be a time to turn your brain off. You could relax, take stock of your week and do things you really want to do. Now, the media reserves their highest quality products for the weekend, when people “have the time” to digest their products.
But, here are five things you might have missed this weekend.
1. Diplo’s “Endless Summer”
Between organizing summer music festivals, performing as Major Lazer and just being an overall awesome guy, Diplo has found the time to put together a 98-song summer mixtape. Perfect for any BBQ, party or day at the beach.
2. Carrie Underwood Joins The Rolling Stones in Toronto
To appeal to younger audiences (as if they need to), The Rolling Stones have been joined on-stage by various younger artists helping them perform their classic. In Brooklyn they were joined by Lady GaGa for example. This past weekend, Carrie Underwood joined the aging rockers for “It’s Only Rock and Roll (But I Like It)” in Toronto, Canada.
3. Destiny’s Child Reunion
The Destiny’s Child reunion began on the Super Bowl and it now continues with a new Kelly Rowland track featuring Michelle Williams and Beyonce.
4. Wu-Tang Clan at Primavera 2013
In worldwide festival news, the Wu-Tang Clan hit the stage at Primavera 2013 this year.
5. Arrested Development Returned
If you haven’t watch a few episodes yet, I don’t know what your waiting for.
