Thursday night at the House of Blues in West Hollywood, Robin Thicke introduced "Dream World," a track from "Something Else" (due out Sept. 9), by telling the packed room that the song is about "an ideal world with no racism and no poverty." The tune offers a few more features of Thicke's utopia: "The ice caps wouldn't be melted," and "energy would fall down from the sky." Oh, and also -- the singer "wouldn't be so damn sensitive." Yeah, right.

Sure, the president was on  “The Tonight Show” Tuesday, but it was Stephen Colbert who easily had the most memorable moment of the night. To celebrate his annual summer concert series, “StePhest Colbchella  '013,” the host donned tube socks and roller skates and boogied down to the song of the summer, Daft Punk's “Get Lucky.” He was joined in the celebration by a slew of celebrity friends, including Hugh Laurie, Jeff Bridges, Charlie Rose, Jimmy Fallon, a plaid leisure suit-wearing Bryan Cranston and, naturally, Henry Kissinger.

Poor Miley Cyrus . Apparently, she's been kicked off the cover of December Vogue. Unless you've been, say, trekking for several weeks in Bhutan, you undoubtedly recall her rather infamous performance at the recent MTV Video Music Awards . Her jam with Robin Thicke and that giant foam finger was rather ... lascivious. At the time it seemed she wasn't really worked up about the controversy. Ministry of Gossip columnist Christie D'Zurilla reported her as saying: "Me and Robin, the whole time, said, 'You know we're about to make history right now.'" But it sounds as if Vogue editor Anna Wintour was making a little history herself.

After Tuesday's post about how dressing as Miley Cyrus this Halloween might earn you a bit of a reputation, the folks at HalloweenCostumes.com reached out to let us know they've compiled an extensive DIY tutorial on channeling the former Hannah Montana. Every last detail of how to create one of Cyrus' looks from the "We Can't Stop" video is twerked -- pardon us, worked -- out in this post by Aleksandra Sobic, so we won't bother rehashing it here beyond noting that it involves, among other things, a pair of white hot pants and a teddy bear backpack.

Last week, we brought you news that Robert Glasper, the wide-ranging jazz pianist, would release a new album by his band the Robert Glasper Experiment on Oct. 29. Now you can hear the album's lead single, "Calls," below. A luscious neo-soul cut with vocals by R&B singer Jill Scott, the track comes from Glasper's sequel to last year's "Black Radio," which won the Grammy Award for R&B album. In addition to Scott, "Black Radio 2" is to feature guest spots by singers and rappers including Anthony Hamilton, Snoop Dogg, Common and Faith Evans, as well as Patrick Stump of the emo-rock band Fall Out Boy. (That one should be interesting.)

Lauryn Hill began serving a three-month jail sentence Monday after pleading guilty last year to not paying approximately $1 million in taxes. The singer and rapper, best known as a member of the Fugees, reported to the federal prison in Danbury, Conn., according to the Associated Press , which quoted a Bureau of Prisons spokesman. Following the completion of her stint there, she's to spend an additional three months under home confinement, the AP said. Hill was sentenced in May, the result of leaving taxes on earnings of over $2 million unpaid from 2005 to 2009.

“Almost everything could be forgotten,” Alex Kapranos sang Tuesday night at the Echoplex, and that's a truism he's observed firsthand. The stylish frontman of Glasgow's Franz Ferdinand is the rare survivor from the dance-rock revival that occupied hipsters in the mid-2000s before giving way inevitably to subsequent trends; Kapranos and his bandmates have outlasted comrades from Radio 4 and Moving Units and the Dead 60s, and they've done it...
