Surprising absolutely no one, Billboard has announced that Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy” is the official song of the summer. Bwog will likely continue to play “Anaconda” and the Nicki Minaj remix of “***Flawless” instead. (Gawker)

Also surprising absolutely no one, American Apparel is indeed just as shitty to its workers as one might think (they’re sexist and racist!). (Gawker)
