Andrew W.K. is set to speak this September at Ohio's Canterlot Gardens, a convention for the cult show My Little Pony. The positive party rocker will host a panel to ponder "What Would Pinkie Pie Do?" in an exploration of Pinkie Pie, a pony who shares many of W.K.'s rambunctious qualities. The "Party Hard" singer will also speak on wider topics, like making partying as important as work.

Canterlot Gardens will take place on September 28th-30th in Strongsville, Ohio. For more information, visit the convention's website.

“Money For Nothing”

Dire Straits | 1984

Mark Knopfler wrote this song with Sting, and it wasn’t without controversy. The Dire Straits frontman's original lyric used the word “faggot” to describe a singer who got their “money for nothing and their chicks for free.” Even though the slur was edited out in many versions, the band, and Knopfler, still took plenty of criticism for the term. “I got an objection from the editor of a gay newspaper in London--he actually said it was below the belt,” Knopfler told Rolling Stone. Still, "Money For Nothing," undoubtedly augmented by its innovative early computer-animated video, stayed at Number One for three weeks.
