It’s a game of cat and Deadmau5 at the Gumball 3000 international motor rally, where the electronic music producer is driving through Europe in a half-million dollar “Purrari” — a Nyan Cat-themed Ferrari.

Amid his vehicular antics, Deadmau5 is world premiering a new song (listen below) exclusively on Mashable on Monday, one day before it becomes available on iTunes.

This is the final album version of “Phantoms Can’t Hang” from while(1<2), which comes out June 17. Fans have previously heard snippets and rough cuts of the track because Deadmau5, born Joel Thomas Zimmerman, routinely uploads works in progress online.

People can follow Deadmau5’s Gumball 3000 live-streamed #TeamPurrari journey at live.deadmau5.com to catch a glimpse of the meme-infused car.

“I only know one dude who would do this to a half-million dollar Ferrari: me,” he told Mashable via Skype chat earlier this year before Gumball 3000 got under way. “LAWL. Suck it, world. Nyanyanyanyanyanyanyanyanyanyanyan.”

Curiosity Rover to Broadcast Will.i.am Song Live on Mars

Whether or not you’re a fan of will.i.am‘s songs, his music will soon be out-of-this-world.

NASA‘s Curiosity rover is set to broadcast a new song by the Black Eyed Peas singer live from the surface of Mars on Tuesday, NASA announced. It will take place at 1 p.m. PT (4 p.m. ET) at the agency’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif.

Called “Reach for the Stars,” the song is about will.i.am’s passion for science, technology and space exploration, NASA said. Check out the video above for more.

In addition, members of the team that successfully landed Curiosity earlier this month will describe the rover’s mission at the event. They will also explain the technology behind the song’s interplanetary transmission.

Will.i.am announced via Twitter that “Reach for the Stars” will be the first song from Earth ever to be broadcast from another planet.

He then encouraged other celebrity tweeters, including Kim Kardashian and Justin Bieber, to “spread the word.”

The event will be streamed on NASA’s website, and broadcast on NASA TV.

Will.i.am, through his i.am.angel Foundation has also partnered with digital-learning company Discovery Education to develop a science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics initiative featuring NASA resources, such as Curiosity.

If you could choose a song to be broadcast on Mars, what would it be? Tell us in the comments below.

Katy Perry’s Victorian Dreams Go Up in Flames in ‘Unconditionally’

Katy Perry has found an era that suits her perfectly — Victorian.

The pop star went retro-chic in a visually stunning music video for power ballad “Unconditionally,” the second single from her “Prism” album. There are gowns, snow, pearls, flower petals, an owl, underwater scenes and a bed on fire — so nothing really out of the ordinary for Perry.

The singer recently told MTV that this music video would be a departure from her other videos because it “doesn’t have a complete narrative.”

“I usually have quite a big story line,” she said. “This time I wanted to give a lot of gorgeous, beautiful looks, which I don’t usually go for. But it’s mostly just a beautiful video that is supposed to evoke this power of love.”

Mission accomplished, Katy.

Perry also released a lyric video for the song in October, featuring models Janell Shirtcliff and Erika Linder.

Skrillex Teaches Richard Branson Dubstep

Billionaire Richard Branson can send satellites and himself into space — is there anything he can’t do? Apparently Branson can’t DJ. That is, until Saturday at the 2012 Virgin Mobile Freefest, where he got a lesson in dubstep from none other than Skrillex.

Watch the unlikely duo come together to make music in the video above. We’ll know exactly who to hold accountable if Branson shaves the side of his head.

Barack Obama Impersonator Raps 99 Problems Parody

“Campaign problems? I feel bad for you son. I got 99 problems, but Mitt ain’t one!”

Boy Band Parody Mocks You For Still Acting Like a Teenage Girl

A new parody of boy band One Direction’s “What Makes You Beautiful” pokes fun at adults who fawn over things that teenagers often love.

“I know it feels pretty weird to discreetly listen to a teenage boy band at 33,” the One Direction look-alikes sing in the video. “We know it’s meant for little girls, but we can’t agree it’s OK (oh-oh), it’s OK to like this song.”

The spoof from comedy site Jest goes on to mock the video’s main character for liking Glee, Degrassi, Dreamworks and Pixar movies, Selena Gomez, Hunger Games, iCarly, Twilight and other pop culture guilty pleasures (and for trashing her bedroom after Javier won The Voice).

But the question remains: Are you a grown-up teenage girl? If so, are you OK with that? Because I am.

Lexi George Dancing To The Rhythm

Well, it’s time for our regularly scheduled annoying tween pop song. It seems just as we’re getting over the last tween pop disaster, some jerks in California just churn out another auto-tuned, junior high themed musical massacre. The creators of the infamous and dreaded Rebecca Black Friday song have brought us their next victim-Lexi George. The music video is featured on YouTubeTrends.

John Mayer and Katy Perry Look Silly on Fake Bull in New Music Video

Lovebirds John Mayer and Katy Perry throw real-life couples onto a mechanical bull and into their new “Who You Love” music video.

The duo takes a ride on the fake bull, too, looking quite ridiculous in the process:

“Holding on for dear life!” Perry told her 60 million Facebook fans Tuesday.

To help build buzz for the video, Perry and Mayer on Tuesday’s Good Morning America discussed their relationship and their decision to make this song and video.

“The very first thought was you can’t do that … then the more I thought about just the music part of it, it made perfect sense, even if I didn’t know Katy, it would have made perfect sense,” he said. “I went in the other room, called her phone. … It’s a pretty big moving target to be a couple and have a song, but I think there’s an authenticity to it when you hear it.”

“It transcends us,” Perry chimed in. “It’s more about, you know, the message of the song.”

I’m A Stupid Freaking Cat Song

NSFW – language.

Let’s get real. What is the point of cats? What exactly do they do? Dogs can be taught tricks, can guard the house, and are loyal. Cats don’t really do any of those things. They just run around like they are busy, eat, and sleep. It sounds like an awesome life. I wish I was a stupid F***ing cat too.
