Daniel Caesar looks for a missed connection on sensual new song “Who Hurt You?”: Stream

Last week, Daniel Caesar guested on The Free Nationals’ new song, “Beauty & Essex”, alongside Unknown Mortal Orchestra. Now, the 23-year-old R&B singer is back with a track of his own, “Who Hurt You?”.

Produced by Jordan Evans and Matthew Burnett, the track serves as Caesar’s first piece of solo material since his 2017 debut, Freudian, which earned him two Grammy nominations and featured collaborations with H.E.R. and fellow breakout star Kali Uchis. It’s a sexually-charged, late-night jam which finds Caesar completely emotionally and physically infatuated with someone new.

“Strange new addictions picked up on the road/ Changed my opinions and changed up my flows/ Changed my approach, no more loving these hoes,” he croons, later adding, “You make me feel so primal/ That’s what I am, I’m just a man.” Rapper/singer T-Pain also chimes in during the graphic chorus.

Prior to officially dropping the single, Caesar shared a Craigslist ad for a missed connection, aka the woman at the center of “Who Hurt You?”:

Voluptuous beauty at Follies on a Tuesday. Blonde wig. You danced on me all night.” The classified goes on to add that “you said you liked my gap. You gave me your number but I lost my phone. I hope I find you” before ending with “Please email me. Btw, I wrote a song about you, it’s called “Who Hurt You?”

Take a listen below.

5 Ingredients that My Type 4 Hair Loves

I have been doing this natural hair thing for a long time but it has only been the last three or so years that I have discover what works for my hair. I look beyond the front of the product bottles and like to delve into the ingredient list to determine what will give me shiny, defined curls. With so many products and ingredients with long and complicated names, it may feel impossible to narrow down which ones your hair likes and does not like. But anyone can do it when you start making looking at the ingredient list a priority. If you are new to the language of labels, here is a guide for what to look for.

Here are the five ingredients that I have found my hair loves.

1. Jojoba oil
Jojoba oil is extracted from the seeds of the Simmondsia chinensis or jojoba plant. I love this oil and make no bones about how much of it I use. It has replaced my coconut oil as my favorite oil to use for just about everything including for my oil cleansing method to cleanse my face. Jojoba oil has a similar chemical makeup as sebum, a very long shelf life, and is a great asset to any hair recipe. I add this to my deep conditioner before warming under my heat thermal cap or use as a pre-poo whenever my hair is tangled. Many claim this oil to be pricy but I always buy mine at Amazon.com and pay no more for it than any other oil. When low on body oil I use it as my body oil too.

2. Cetyl alcohol and cetearyl alcohol
I learned a long time ago that not all alcohols are bad. Cetyl alcohol and cetearyl alcohol work as emollients, emulsifiers, and carrying agents for other ingredients in the products without the drying effects of ethyl alcohol. They work to condition and soften the skin, scalp, and hair and quite often used in moisturizers, conditioners, and anti-aging treatments. My hair loves this and when I see either of these in a product I know I will have no problems with that product.

3. Coconut oil

This fatty oil obtained from the coconut has a unique combination of fatty acids. It is a star in the kitchen and the bathroom. Most curly, wavy, and coily girls love coconut oil but as jojoba oil has taken its place in my favorite oil for hydrating and conditioning. I use it for the oil cleansing method and for moisturizing and conditioning my hair and scalp. Coconut oil stays on my list of Holy Grail products. I keep it around and sometimes use on my body I know that with my favorite products and what I gravitate to, I will always have coconut oil in my hair in one form or another. I still have several products that have coconut oil in the top five ingredients.
4. Stearamidopropyl dimethylamine
This replacement for silicones is water soluble and derived from vegetable oil. It is often used in hair conditioners and shampoos as a conditioner and anti-static agent, but it also binds to the surface of hair and gives excellent slip without causing excessive buildup. I love the slip this ingredient gives me whenever I use it in the TRESemme Naturals Aloe Vera and Avocado Nourishing Moisture Conditioner. Whenever I want silky movement, I grab this conditioner with no worry about buildup.

5. Marshmallow root
Marshmallow root or Althea officinalis is a polycrest herb that has been around for centuries and is used for medicine as well as being a wicked slip ingredient in several hair care products. It is the main reason I have had Kinky-Curly Curling Custard as my staple gel for years and why I will forever keep a jar of their Knot Today in my shower for those massive tangles I sometimes get.

My hair thrives on natural ingredients. I align my arsenal with products and lines that use natural ingredients like natural oils, herbs, or derivatives of natural ingredients. No, I am not Mother Nature nor do I only use rainwater to wash my hair but once I reviewed the ingredient lists, I began noticing certain ingredients my hair responded well to.

Which ingredients does your hair love?

Here’s How to Make Your Own Curl Cream

As a curly hair blogger and enthusiast I naturally am a bit — ok, huge — product junkie, which can become very expensive when you have to buy products with natural ingredients and get through conditioners quickly!


Because natural, healthy hair care can be expensive, a lot of curlies and transitioners might go for cheaper products with harsh ingredients that in the long run will damage the hair. An alternative to this is to DIY! Make your own hair products. After some research online I found an easy and cheap recipe for a ‘curl cream’ leave-in conditioner. Check out the steps to make it and my results below.

This is my day 3 hair.

I will be refreshing it with water and the DIY curl cream. To make the cream you will need just 3 ingredients, coconut oil, shea butter and aloe vera gel, which came to around £15 to 17. Keep in mind that I will only be using a small amount of each for the curl cream.

We will be mixing 2 tablespoons of each ingredient in a bowl for the cream and you want to start with the thickest product (Shea Butter) as the base. I am using 100% natural unrefined shea butter, which was very hard to mix and came in clumps, so it did take a while to break down!

Step 1: Apply 2 tablespoons of shea butter to a bowl.
I prefer wooden bowls as the product doesn’t stick to them as much.

Step 2: Add in 2 tablespoons of coconut oil.
Mix both the oil and shea butter together until you get a soft creamy consistency, try to smooth out any clumps of shea butter.

Step 3: Once the consistency is smooth add in the last 2 spoonfuls of aloe vera gel.

This is in a way the LOC method mixed together. (LOC stands for liquid, oil, cream, with the liquid here being the aloe vera gel. Once the aloe is mixed in you will get a very creamy and white looking consistency, which is ready to apply to your damp or wet hair!

Step 4: Apply the final mixture to damp hair (a little goes a long way) so I was left with a lot of cream after!
This is amazing as the 2 tablespoons is hardly anything from each ingredient so you should have a curl cream lasting for at least a month. With a huge amount of ingredients left to make more and more curl creams until your heart is content! And plus, it is super cheap.

Check out my final results below, my hair was immediately moisturized so this is amazing if you ever are out of product and your hair is dry and needs to be replenished. I did feel that it may have been just a bit too heavy for my hair to give it the greatest definition but would work well for styling a bun of even twist or braid-out.

Let me know how this curl cream works for you!
If you have another tried and true DIY, tell us which mixture you would recommend for the best-defined wash and go in the comments below.

T.I. pisses off White House with Melania Trump stripper look-alike in new video: Watch

It’s another day in Trump’s America, which means more madness, more hypocrisy, and more shame. At the very least, rapper T.I. is doing his part by pissing off this current administration, thanks to a teaser for his new album, Dime Trap.

In the video, controversy abounds when Melania Trump is reported as not heading to Mar-a-Lago with our unfortunate Commander in Chief. Instead, she visits T.I. in the Oval Office.

Of course, it’s not really Melania, but a stripper look-alike wearing the First Lady’s now-iconic “I Don’t Care” jacket, which she takes off for T.I., who’s puffing away on a cigar while lounging in ol’ Donny’s chair.

Following up on his recent comments, T.I. tweeted a blistering caption with the teaser that reads, “Dear 45, I ain’t Kanye,” referencing Trump’s new partner-in-crime and recent Saturday Night Live musical performer:

It’s incredibly stupid, but stupid is as stupid does, and so, naturally, Melania Trump’s people have tossed gasoline on the fire by responding to the video on Twitter, even calling for a hapless boycott:


And life goes on…

Ty Segall delicately covers The Dils’ punk rock hit “Class War”: Stream

In just a few weeks, Ty Segall will release his fourth album of 2018. Titled Fudge Sandwich, it’s a covers LP featuring tastily reimagined versions of tracks originally by Grateful Dead, John Lennon, Neil Young, Funkadelic, and War, among others.

Segall initially teased the full-length with last month’s rendition of “I’m a Man”, made famous in 1967 by Steve Winwood’s The Spencer Davis Group. The prolific garage rocker is back today with his take on “Class War” by punk outfit The Dils. Led by brothers Chip and Tony Kinman, the group was once affectionately known as “California’s The Clash” and “the punk rock Everly Brothers.”

(Read: The Top 25 Albums of 2018… So Far)

While The Dils took a brash, rapid-fire approach to their 1977 cut, Segall is happy to take his time unfurling “Class War” first as an acoustic ballad, then ’70s-era rock and roll jam. Perhaps this is why he’s able to churn out album after album, and under different aliases — Segall is as chameleonic as they come, showing various sides of himself with each project.

According to a press statement, The Dils’ Chip happily approves of the cover. “Ty Segall answers questions that Tony and I never even thought to ask with his version of ‘Class War’,” he said. “I LOVE it!”

Take a listen to their cover below.

Here’s The Dils’ original for comparison:

Fudge Sandwich hits store shelves on October 26th via In The Red. The LP follows Segall’s Freedom’s Goblin in January, July’s collaborative effort with White Fence, and his latest GØGGS record. This Wednesday, Segall will kick off his 18-date solo acoustic tour.

Godsmack guitarist Tony Rombola’s son dies, band postpones Europe tour

Tragic news to report, as Godsmack guitarist Tony Rombola’s son, Joe Fay, has passed away at the age of 34. In order to give Rombola time to mourn, Godsmack have postponed their fall 2018 Europe tour, which was set to kick off October 29th in Stockholm, Sweden.

Rombola, 53, performed with Godsmack during the band’s set at the Aftershock festival in Sacramento, California, over the weekend, which marked their last North American date of 2018.

Godsmack frontman Sully Erna issued the following statement to announce Joe’s passing and the band’s tour postponement:

“With my deepest regrets, and on behalf of our guitarist Tony and his wife Sue, I am personally writing this message to all of our fans worldwide to inform you that Tony and his family have suffered a loss that no parent should ever have to endure.

Tony and Sue’s son Joe Fay passed away last week, unexpectedly, at the young age of 34. He was one of the kindest and most humble guys I had ever met. And most importantly, he was a FAN. Just like all of you. He literally lived the success of Godsmack through his Dad. He was always so excited and proud just to be around all of us, and we will all miss him deeply.

As we await more information on how this happened, we humbly ask that you respect Tony and his family’s privacy as they take time to process this and heal.

We appreciate all of your patience, prayers and support in this very trying time. And I promise you, we ARE coming back bigger and stronger in the beginning of 2019, and we WILL honor all of these tour dates in Europe and across this globe. So be ready!”

Our deepest condolences go out to Tony Rombola and his family during this difficult time.

Go behind the scenes of Arctic Monkeys’ Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino in Warp Speed Chic short film: Watch

Arctic Monkeys are checking fans into Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino with a new short film called Warp Speed Chic. Directed by Ben Chappell, the nearly 12-minute video comprises footage from the band’s recording sessions in France; their concert in Lyon, France a year later; and behind the scene clips of their music video shoots for “Four Out of Five” and the album’s title track (both of which Chappell also directed).

The short juxtaposes the raw studio sessions with the fully realized live performances, splitting verses between the two modes so you can see the complete arc of a song in microcosm. Speaking of the film in a statement, Chappell explained,

“After spending a year documenting Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino I wanted to try and pull it all together in a short film. I spent a few weeks with the band in France documenting the recording process with my 16mm camera in September 2017. At that point I was still only hearing bits and pieces of the tunes as they were being recorded. Nearly a year later, I was on stage with them in Lyon France, shooting some of those same tunes. When the film came back from the lab I put the live songs next to my shots of them recording and found it to be quite nice. With that as a starting point, I then used James Ford’s instrumental mixes of the album and I put an assortment of the images we created for this album overtop, giving a glimpse into the last year and the full progression of Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino.”

Check out Warp Speed Chic below.

In related news, Arctic Monkeys will release the title track to Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino on 7-Inch vinyl. It’s due for release on November 30th and contains a new song called “”Anyways” as its B-side.

Introducing The Keto Reset Diet Cookbook (Plus, an MDA Pre-Order Bonus Deal)

The Keto Reset Diet Cookbook is here! Well, almost here, but my team and I are excited to release it to the world—and especially to you, the readers of Mark’s Daily Apple. In fact, I decided to do a sneak peek today just so you’ll be the first to know.

When I published my New York Times bestseller The Keto Reset Diet in October, 2017, keto was already hot among forward-thinking folks in the health, fitness, and longevity spheres, and it was catching on in the general population as well. Over the past year, its popularity has only continued to skyrocket. While I’ve personally enjoyed watching the tide of people rejecting carbohydrate dependency eating patterns and embracing a new scope of Primal/paleo/low-carb eating strategies, I also recognize the pitfalls within the potential….

On the one hand, the keto fervor has spurred people to question conventional nutrition advice, probably more than I’ve ever witnessed in my more-than-a-decade of conventional wisdom busting. That’s a good thing! On the other hand, as I’ve written before, the explosive growth has led to rampant hype, misinterpretation, and criticism. Even devoted keto enthusiasts have tweaked the foundational message to make keto a fat fest. A friend related to me recently how she’d attended a luncheon where one guest whipped out a stick of butter and set about applying pat after pat to her meal. You see, she was doing the keto diet!

I wrote The Keto Reset Diet as a countermeasure to the nutrient-poor, scientifically questionable, hacky versions of keto. I wanted to advance a version of keto that emphasizes the consumption of colorful, nutritious foods, including ample (but sensible) added fats when called for. I also wanted to put in a plug for fasting, eating in a compressed time window, and engaging in supportive behaviors like getting sufficient sleep and managing stress. In other words, the Primal interpretation and application of a ketogenic diet.

With this book project, I’d like to make another plug for enjoying the heck out of every single bite of food that you eat. This is pretty much my mission statement for my PRIMAL KITCHEN® product line—to enhance meals with healthy and deliciously flavored condiments—and it’s how I live my own life each day. Unfortunately, I’ve seen many keto enthusiasts resort to a somber, strict approach where bland meals are the norm to simplify counting and micromanaging macros. After all, if they keep their meals totally austere, they don’t have to stress about pesky carbs sneaking in and kicking them out of ketosis.

If you’ve read The Keto Reset Diet or taken the Keto Reset Online Mastery Course, you know that I don’t endorse any amount of struggling or suffering when eating a keto profile, just as I reject them in the context of a Primal diet. You probably also know that I refuse to eat anything that doesn’t bring me genuine pleasure. I want the same for you. That’s why I’m doing the work with you—helping you to eat colorful, flavorful, interesting food and stay within your ketogenic macros. This cookbook is part of that mission. Check out the video intro, and see what I mean.

The Keto Reset Diet Cookbook contains 150 keto-friendly and totally Primal-approved recipes. My co-author, Lindsay Taylor, Ph.D. and I have put together a collection that is sure to please every palate. (Yes, even your kids’—can you say Green Eggs and Ham?) We’re offering everything from quick-and-easy convenience foods (Handheld Chef Salad or Smoked Salmon Stacks) to recipes for nights when you feel like making something a little more special (Crab-stuffed Fish Pinwheels or Lamb Roast with Mint Chimichurri), and even some delectable desserts like the heavenly Dark Chocolate Pudding. Throwing a dinner party and want some keto-friendly fare that all your guests will love? We’ve got you covered! How about Bacon Party Mix, Roast Beef Bites with Horseradish Sauce, and Harissa Almond Dip?

In additional to the fabulous recipes, The Keto Reset Cookbook contains a plethora of educational content to explain the whats, whys, and hows of keto. Let’s just say, hypothetically, you give out copies of this cookbook as holiday gifts to your keto-curious friends and family. In addition to being inspired by the mouthwatering recipes, they’ll gain a good understanding of how to go keto the right way—laying the groundwork of ditching carb dependency and becoming somewhat fat-adapted before attempting a distinct keto phase, and steering clear of the flawed practices such as stuffing one’s face with fat in the name of making ketones.

The fact is, I recognize that a cookbook can be a less intimidating way to enter the keto scene. With The Keto Reset Diet Cookbook, not only will you get the basic guidelines you need to do it right, you’ll have an awesome collection of recipes to keep things lively and creative. Here are two of my favorites….

Crab Salad Remoulade


  • 1/2 cup avocado oil mayo
  • 2 Tablespoons Dijon mustard (whole-grain recommended)
  • 1/2 teaspoon prepared horseradish
  • 1/2 teaspoon Cajun Seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon sweet paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 pound lump crabmeat
  • 1 stalk celery with leaves, finely chopped
  • 2 scallions, finely chopped
  • 8 cups arugula
  • 2 avocados, sliced
  • 1 lemon, cut into wedges


In a bowl, combine the mayo, mustard, horseradish, Cajun seasoning, paprika, garlic powder, cayenne, and lemon juice. Add the crabmeat, celery, and scallions. Stir well to combine.

(Optional: Refrigerate the salad to chill.)

To serve, place 2 cups arugula on each salad plate. Arrange 1/2 sliced avocado on top. Scoop one-quarter of the salad mixture on top of the avocado. Serve with a lemon wedge.

Kale Salad With Pumpkin Croutons


  • ½ cup Homemade Pumpkin Puree (page 245) or unsweetened canned
  • 1 small bunch curly kale (green or red), ribs and leaves separated
  • 1 Tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 small bunch Swiss chard, ribs and leaves separated
  • 4 Tablespoons keto-friendly dressing of choice
  • ¼ teaspoon Pumpkin Pie Spice Blend (page 254)
  • 2 Tablespoons coconut oil
  • ½ cup crumbled goat cheese
  • 3 Tablespoons pumpkin seeds or sunflower seeds
  • ½ cup raspberries or blackberries (optional)


If you are using homemade pumpkin puree, line a sieve with a clean kitchen towel and place it over a bowl. Scoop the pumpkin puree into the towel and set aside. You can skip this step if you are using canned pumpkin, or if your homemade pumpkin is not too watery.

Tear or cut the kale leaves into roughly bite-size pieces and place them in a large bowl. Add the olive oil, lemon juice, and ¼ teaspoon of the salt. Use your hands to knead (massage) the kale for about 2 minutes, until the volume has reduced by half.

Chop the Swiss chard leaves into small pieces and mix it into the kale. Pour in 2 tablespoons of the dressing and stir well. Set aside.

Place the pumpkin in a small bowl. Stir in the pumpkin pie spice and remaining ¼ teaspoon salt. In a skillet, heat the coconut oil over medium heat for 2 minutes. When it is hot, carefully drop rounded teaspoons of the pumpkin mixture into the oil (watch for splatter) and press down to flatten slightly. Work in batches to avoid crowding the pan. Cook until browned on the first side, about 2 minutes. Flip and cook 2 minutes on the second side. Remove the pumpkin “croutons” to a plate and repeat until you have used all the pumpkin mixture. Add more oil if the pan gets too dry.

Dice the chard and kale ribs. Add them to the skillet and stir-fry for about 4 minutes. Mix them into the salad.

Transfer the kale and chard mixture to a serving bowl. Crumble the goat cheese over the top, then sprinkle on the pumpkin seeds. Arrange the berries (if using) and the pumpkin “croutons” on top. Drizzle with the remaining 2 tablespoons dressing. Serve immediately.

Open Mike Eagle’s new EP, What Happens When I Try to Relax, is coming later this week

Open Mike Eagle returned last month with a new single called “Relatable (peak OME)”, along with the promise of a more expansive project that would soon be on the way. He’s kept that vow, announcing today the details of an imminent new EP.

Titled What Happens When I Try to Relax, it’s due out this Friday, October 19th. It marks his first release through his own Auto Reverse record label, and spans a total of six songs. With the exception of “Relatable”, their titles have been mostly kept a mystery). The EP follows up on Brick Body Kids Still Daydream, his breakout 2017 album.

“It’s too complicated for a quick explanation….” the Chicago-born, but LA-based rapper previously said of “Relatable”. “It’s about expectations of form, anxiety, middle age and middle class. and that’s just the parts I know how to put into words a couple months after writing it.”

Beginning October 19th, OME will hit the road, with tour dates scheduled in parts of Europe and North America. Find his full itinerary here.

Recently, OME — an avid wrestling fan — actually participated in his first-ever wrestling match. He battled Shiloh Jonze in the ring in Louisville last week and came out victorious (with the added help of wrestling icon Mick Foley, but still).

On the comedy front, OME has been working with Mystery Science Theater 3000’s Baron Vaughn on the upcoming Comedy Central show The New Negroes, a variety show that combines stand-up and music to investigate “perceptions of blackness.” He also performed at Adult Swim’s inaugural festival in downtown Los Angeles a few weekends ago.
