Coming Soon: Beck Beer, TV on the Radio “Staring at the Sun” Brand Tequila, M.I.A.’s Super Premium Hard Lemonade?


mojo-photo-afiabsinthe.jpgAnybody thirsty? Billboard.biz reports that Interscope Records has just entered an agreement with Drinks Americas to “develop various drink products” with Interscope artists. The oddly-named Drinks Americas (I guess they’re including Central and South?) currently produces tasty beverages like Donald Trump’s Super Premium Vodka and Willie Nelson’s Old Whiskey River Bourbon, and I can’t imagine buying either of them. Okay maybe Willie’s whiskey.

Now, we’ve already seen a hot Bay Area hip-hop style get its own energy beverage, but the mind reels at the co-branding opportunities that could emerge from this deal. The label’s roster includes mainstream hitmakers like Fergie, Enrique Iglesias and 50 Cent, as well as critical favorites like Feist, Wolfmother, and even Simian Mobile Disco. You can find their complete list of artists here; post your own ideas for artist-themed beverages in the comments, and if you’re lucky, maybe you’ll see them soon at your neighborhood 7-11.

THANK YOU.

We recently wrapped up the crowdfunding campaign for our ambitious Mother Jones Corruption Project, and it was a smashing success. About 10,364 readers pitched in with donations averaging $45, and together they contributed about $467,374 toward our $500,000 goal.

That's amazing. We still have donations from letters we sent in the mail coming back to us, so we're on pace to hit—if not exceed—that goal. Thank you so much. We'll keep you posted here as the project ramps up, and you can join the hundreds of readers who have alerted us to corruption to dig into.
