Why anyone let alone Brooklynvegan or Pitchfork would care about a thing that comes out of Heems mouth is way beyond me. Guy should go back to the buffet table and keep his big fat mouth occupied that way!

@1008 because in this case, he was correct. best album of 2011 was 'house of balloons' - every single track is a classic. that shit blew me away

The Weeknd is touring in 2012, indirectly said it on his twitter/tumblr. Hope he plays somewhere smaller than T5
