Last month Nine Inch Nails performed a set of concerts in Tokyo, Japan before they made their way to Australia/New Zealand where they continue to play live shows as part of the #NIN2014 Tension Live Tour this month. At the end of March and in early April, NIN will perform in Latin America … in May and June they will perform in Europe. Today we hear that NIN may soon announce US tour dates for later this year. The NIN official Instagram profile was updated with a curious video tease and an industrious fan stumbled on a NIN tour date that wasn’t supposed to be announced just yet. HMMM. More »

Yesterday evening I got to hang out with Tamar for a showing of The LEGO Movie even tho I had already seen it with my friend Courtney a few weeks ago. Tam had yet to see it and I wanted to spend time with Tam so it was win/win for both of us. I loved the movie just as much as I did when I originally saw it so I can attest that the movie is worth multiple viewings. After the movie, I made my way to The Mayan Theater in downtown LA to see the industrial band Skinny Puppy live in concert. I’ve been a fan of SP for many, many years and it’s been quite a few years since I last saw them in concert so … yeah, I was really excited to see them live again. More »

"I rule in my fantasy"
The legendary Bruce Springsteen performed a concert at the Mt. Smart Stadium in Auckland, New Zealand last night (well tonight there, last night here) and he decided to pay homage to one of New Zealand’s own by performing a cover of Lorde‘s world-wide smash hit single Royals. Yes, Bruce covered Lorde … as only Bruce can do. Naturally, he amended the lyrics a little bit to suit his needs but for the most part, he did his best to pay tribute to Lorde‘s Grammy award-winning song … much to her glee, I’m sure. Click the embed above to watch Bruce‘s cover of Royals and see what you think of his take on Lorde‘s song. As far as compliments go, this seems like a pretty significant one … I’m quite certain that Lorde is pretty pleased with herself right now :)

Earlier this week we learned that Drake brought out on stage his ladyfriend/possible love interest Rihanna for a duet performance of their song Take Care in Paris, France. Last night, Drake brought out another BFF for a special surprise performance during his Would You Like A Tour? Tour, this time in Berlin, Germany. None other than BFF Kanye West came out for a special performance of his song Black Skinhead, much to the audience’s ecstatic glee. As you can hear in the video embedded above, Drake had a lot of really great things to say about Kanye before Yeezy launched into his performance. Check out the performance and see what you think. It’s clear to me that these two guys have a pretty ride or die friendship … which is really nice to see among men, don’t you think?
Directed by Hype Williams
Kanye West updated his official website with a video trailer for an upcoming concert film that will be releases in movie theaters. You may recall that we learned last week that author Bret Easton Ellis has penned a movie script for Kanye West but this particular film is something different. Kanye‘s site doesn’t give much information other than revealing Hype Williams as the film’s director. Click the embed above to get your first look at Yeezus: The Film and stay tuned … we will likely be hearing more about this Kanye West movie in the coming days and weeks.
Nine Inch Nails has kicked off their 2014 World Tour in Tokyo, Japan this week and last night they brought out a special guest performer to close out the show. Trent Reznor‘s wife and frontwoman of How to Destroy Angels came out on stage last night to perform a couple of HTDA songs during the concert encore. This is the first time that HTDA has performed since they successfully completed their debut tour back in April of last year. Click below to see a photo of Mariqueen and Trent on stage together and check out the amazing setlist that was performed last night. More »
Fans in attendance at Drake‘s concert at the Palais Omnisports de Paris-Bercy in Paris, France last night got a special surprise treat when Rihanna came out on stage to perform her duet Take Care with Drizzy. The pair (who have long been rumored to be romantically linked and were just spotted at a nightclub together in Paris Monday night) just so happened to both be in Paris at the same time so they thought it might be neat to perform together in order to drive the crowd wild. Check out the video above to watch Drake and Ri Ri do the damn thing together last night. Do you think these two are together together or is it more likely they’ve got a friends with benefits situation going on? Friends or more than friends?

Last night I made my way to the El Rey Theater to see the amazing band Cibo Matto live on stage for the first time since 1998. I heard a few weeks ago that Cibo Matto was releasing a new album and when I found out that they would be playing LA on tour, I knew I had to see them live. Honestly, I had forgotten how great their music was but last night’s show, chock full of their greatest hits and select new songs, not only took me back but reminded me how much I’ve missed them! Click below to see a few photos and a couple of short Instagram videos from the show last night and get a tiny taste of what their live experience is like. More »

Remember last week when we saw that photo of Miley Cyrus putting a pair of thong underwear in her mouth after they were tossed on stage by a random fan during one of her concert stops on her current BANGERZ Tour? Well, it looks like Miley simply cannot get enough panties in her mouth because during one of her shows here in LA over the weekend, she went and did it again. Fans have started throwing random things to Miley on stage and that includes underwear. For some strange reason, she cannot resist putting said underwear in her mouth. Again, I say, gross. More »
