It's hard to believe it's been 30 years to the day since John Lennon died.
To mark the anniversary, Rolling Stone released its full-length interview with Lennon conducted three days before his death. Excerpts from the nine-hour interview with writer Jonathan Cott previously ran in a tribute issue, but the tapes sat in Cott's closet for nearly 30 years.
"Earlier this year I was cleaning up to find some files in the recesses of my closet when I came across two cassette tapes marked 'John Lennon, December 5th, 1980,'" Cott says. "It had been 30 years since I listened to them, and when I put them on ...

Snoop Dogg "Oh Sookie"
Snoop Dogg has spoken about his love for HBO's hit vampire series True Blood in the past, but now the rapper has made a True Blood music video for a song he wrote titled "Oh Sookie." And it's hilarious.
True Blood's James Frain: Who is Franklin Mott working for?
The video starts out with the show's theme song playing as an old school Caddy pulls up with California plates that read "Tru Pimp." As the music video begins — which features actual footage from the show, as well as Sookie-lookalike back-up dancers in blonde wigs — Snoop raps his smooth playa lines as he tries to sweep Sookie off her feet. And the refrain that goes a little something like this ...

Jail, poison, Beyonce: Lady Gaga debuts her latest brainchild
Male dancers in various states of dress (sometimes full uniform, sometimes just fishnets and skivvies) accompany the diva, who simulates sex with them in a snowy underworld that's part Evita, part Dr. Zhivago. The dreary video is an odd visual match for the song itself, which uncannily recalls the peppy, tropical vibe of Madonna's "La Isla Bonita."

The tune is not the only "homage" to the Material Girl. In one dance sequence, Gaga wears a black pantsuit that recalls Madonna's "Express Yourself" get-up. Gaga puts a finer point on Madonna's cone bra by attaching guns to her black leather version. Throw in a few close-ups of rosary beads and Gaga in a red-and white nun's habit, which, well, come on, we've see all that somewhere before.

In the S&M inspired clip, Aguilera wears several dominatrix-style outfits as she dances, crawls, writhes and makes obscene gestures. There's also a smattering of obligatory girl-on-girl action with Step Up's Jenna Dewan.
