6. Karen O and N.A.S.A. (the music group, not the space agency) cover Bob Marley's "I Shot The Sheriff." It is...a song that exists. [NME]

7. Courtney Love fought the law and actually won...a defamation suit. But she's not out of the woods yet—the 49-year-old sometimes singer is fighting another defamation suit for something she did on Pinterest. [SPIN]

8. Disclosure and Lorde will team up for a performance at this year's BRIT Awards. We're actually quite excited about this. [Consequence of Sound]

9. This week was all about how predictable some bands' sounds can be. One group released a fake Red Hot Chili Peppers' song called "Abracadabralifornia" and another dropped a Nine Inch Nails parody song called "This Is a Trent Reznor Song." They're both hilarious and weirdly accurate. [SPIN]

10. Future and Angel Haze cover Beyoncé's "Drunk In Love" with Future taking over Beyoncé's part and Angel Haze covering Jay Z. [Pitchfork]
