With no LA date ::cry::
Last summer, Morrissey was forced to cancel his North American tour due to illness that we found out back in October was cancer. Since then, he has managed to recuperate enough to start performing live shows in Europe. Today we learn that Moz has announced a string of new North American tour dates set to take place here this summer with Blondie and Amanda Palmer opening for him on select dates. It’s unclear how Moz is doing health-wise but since he appears back to “normal” touring shape, my guess is that he is doing A-OK these days. More »
The 'Jackie' Tour begins on May 3
Last month, Ciara (née Ciara Princess Harris) released a music video for her new single I Bet. Today, we learn that that single will be featured on her new album titled Jackie which will be released on May 4 … one day after she officially kicks off her Jackie Tour in Chicago, IL. I know I haven’t been paying too much attention to what Ciara has been doing lately musically (tho I have been enraptured by her babydaddy drama) but this surprise album has deffo piqued my interest. Click below to see the cover art for Jackie and see the dates released this far for her upcoming Jackie Tour. More »
"he stopped crying wen he laid his head on dem thangz"
So, a clever little boy in attendance at the Belfast stop of Nicki Minaj‘s The Pinkprint Tour managed to weasel his way on stage and mustered up a torrent of ugly cries to hoodwink Nicki into giving him a hug so that he could nestle his sweet little head betwxit her ample bosoms and managed to instantly become a boss for life. The entire incident was broadcast on the jumbotron screens inside the concert arena and Nicki was so impressed with this clever kid that she shared the video on her official Instagram profile. Folks, this kid is a damn genius. Watch the video below and marvel. More »
The 'End Times' are Here
For the past couple of years, many things from the ’90s have made their way back into pop culture … from fashion trends to music styles … but nothing beats the real thing, I guess.

Zayn-less and Painless
Just a few days after Zayn Malik broke the hearts of One Direction fans around the world with his announcement that he was leaving the group, the remaining members of 1D performed their first concert sans Zayn in Johannesburg, South Africa over the weekend and wonder of wonders — the world didn’t come to a crashing end. In the days following Zayn‘s departure from the group, there was a lot of exaggerated weeping and such but Saturday night’s show in Johannesburg proved that One Direction can carry on just fine as a four member group. Click below to see a photo and video of the smaller version of 1D doing what they do in concert in South Africa. More »
Yesterday we learned that being Nicki Minaj‘s new boyfriend means being a prop of sorts for her raunchy Instagram photos (I’m convinced that whole, incredible photo shoot was all her idea). And people are taking the hint—if you wanna get to Nicki, you might wanna just go ahead and dress up like Meek Mill. London fans during the Pinkprint Tour took their concert attire to a whole ‘nother level, and I love it! Click inside for more!
It's not real until you mount your boyfriend on IG
Well, isn’t this… adorable. Last month it became pretty clear that Nicki Minaj and rumored new boo Meek Mill were an actual thing. And this month it’s clear that being a thing with Nicki Minaj is really really fun—at least on Instagram. She’s been on tour with her boo and apparently performing together in Paris was a real turn on. Click inside for more!
The TV Guide
In the past few weeks, I’ve been hearing about and falling in love from afar with a new band out of the UK called Years and Years and last night I got to see them make their official debut here in LA at their sold out concert at The Troubadour in West Hollywood, CA (Y&Y made their unofficial LA debut at Bardot on Monday night at a last-minute surprise show that I missed). I’ve been really anxious to hear this band live so I was very excited to see the show. I got to meet up with Darion for dinner before the show last night for the first time in forever so that was a lot of fun too. After we got caught up over dinner, we made our way to the Troub to see Years and Years play their first LA show. More »

Don't cry, Harry ... please, don't cry :(
Yesterday the world was SHOCKED with the news that Zayn Malik has decided to quit One Direction, leaving the group as a sad Zaynless four piece. No one was hit harder with the news that Zayn has left 1D than the members of One Direction themselves. Last night, the remaining members of 1D performed a concert in Jakarta without Zayn and at one point, Harry Styles was seen crying sad tears on stage over the departure of his 1D group mate. That’s right … tears fell from Harry‘s sweet face … and as they hit the ground, sweet little flower blossoms sprung up … and then quickly withered and died :( If you think you can handle the sight of Harry crying over 1D‘s loss of Zayn then click below and have a look. Brace yourselves, this isn’t easy to see. More »
