LISTEN: Mary Lambert’s video for debut single ‘Secrets’

MaryLambert1Mary Lambert went from obscurity to zaftig pop hero when she teamed with Macklemore and Ryan Lewis on their hit rap about gay tolerance, “Same Love.” Now the queer singer, who has one of those indie rocker-chick voice you quickly latch onto, has release the first single off her debut album, due in the fall. “Secrets” is about her dysfunctional personality and how she comes to terms with being who she is. It’s a fun little romp. Take a listen (and watch the video) after the jump.

Sarah, you shouldn't have pissed off Levi!

Future Playgirl hottie Levi Johnston and his ex — and baby mama — during happier times.

I know, I know. Sarah Palin is SO last year!

But hey, Levi Johnston is getting to be bigger news every day. And this bit from The Daily Beast.com, won’t hurt that. It also proves that Ms. Palin maybe should have thought twice before casting Levi out of the fold:

“Diverting attention from his upcoming Playgirl photoshoot, Levi Johnston says he’s hiding some big secrets about former Alaska governor Sarah Palin, the grandmother of his son. “There are some things that I have that are huge—and I haven’t said them because I’m not gonna hurt her that way,” Johnston said Wednesday morning in the first portion of a two-part exclusive Early Show interview. Though he wouldn’t answer whether what Palin allegedly did while serving the state of Alaska was illegal or immoral, he went on to say the secrets “would get her in trouble, and could hurt her… If I really wanted to hurt her, I could, very easily.” As Johnston and Palin continue in their public he-said-she-said battle, Johnston isn’t worried about what he assumes is coming for him, perhaps in Palin’s upcoming memoir. “I don’t have anything to hide,” says Johnston. As for Playgirl, he says the photos will be done “tastefully… I’m not gonna just go out there and get naked.”
