BONUS Music Monday: Monster by Kanye West featuring Nicki Minaj, Rick Ross, & Jay-Z

From Entertainment Weekly's Tumblr:

“The following content is in no way to be interpreted as misogynistic or negative towards any groups of people. It is an art piece and should be taken as such.”
As EW’s Kyle Anderson writes, “In reality, that opening sentence”—which precedes the full video for Kanye West’s “Monster”—”will be way more incendiary than anything in the actual clip. Just because something is ‘an art piece’ doesn’t let it off the hook for misogyny. And not allowing people to even enter into a conversation about whether or not it offends women is, in itself, sort of misogynistic.” Do you agree?

See the video for yourself, after the break.

Music Monday: I'm Walking on Sunshine by Katrina & The Waves

Given my recent real life development (new job!!), I feel like this is a pretty appropriate song to kick off week.

After the break, take a listen and get excited. It's a whole new week to make as awesome as you can imagine.
