A Really Big To-Do
Each year, on the night before the Grammy Awards, music mogul Clive Davis hosts an annual Pre-Grammy Awards Gala where some of the biggest names in music come out to perform for or merely party with one one another. This year, newcomers like Lorde hopped up on stage to perform alongside music royalty like Pharrell, Dave Grohl, Jennifer Hudson and others. In the crowd, folks like Kelis and Taylor Swift took it all in and became the A-List audience for an A-List group of performers. Click thru the gallery to see some of the photos that were snapped last night at Clive‘s big shindig and see just how amazing this year’s line-up of performers and attendees was. Davis‘s Pre-Grammy Awards Gala is the biggest event to take place before the Grammys air LIVE worldwide. We are now in the final countdown to Music’s Biggest Night!

AKA The Night I Partied My Arse Off With Toni, Tamar, Trina, Traci, and Towanda Braxton
As many of you know Trent is partnering with Gain for the launch of their new product Gain Flings, and it’s kind of a huge deal. Why is it a huge deal? Ummmm because my epic night with FRIGGEN Toni Braxton, FRIGGEN Tamar Braxton, FRIGGEN Traci Braxton, FRIGGEN Towanda Braxton, and FRIGGEN Tina Braxton was brought to me (and now you) by Gain Flings! They had a really sweet party in the city last night for their pre-Grammy launch, and I got to meet/party with/interview all of the fabulous Braxton sisters. And Tamar‘s hubby Vince, who I think is just… awesome. Click inside for more!

"This sweater is dope as fuck. That's like some shit I would wear to the airport."
Last July, Kanye West released a capsule collection for French design house A.P.C. to some success (I think) and this weekend, he showed a new collection of A.P.C. clothes at Paris Fashion Week. At the A.P.C. show, Kanye treated guests to a 15 minute presentation wherein he talked about his design work on the collection and, to be honest, actually sounded like he knew what he was talking about. Click below to read some quotes from Kanye‘s A.P.C. presentation and see what you think of Kanye West: Fashion Designer. More »
That-Ish-Cray Of The Day
I don’t know what it is about stories like this but they just get me! Y’all. Pamela Anderson just got hitched to her ex-husband Rick Salomon and I just can’t get over it. I am obsessed with people who marry the same person twice… Don’t ask me why. I know it sounds crazy, but I honestly think it’s, like, the most romantic thing ever, LMAO! And in the midst of all this DUNZO news (i.e. Hilary Duff and Mike Comrie, friggen Tori & Dean, and Miranda and Orlando… because yeah, I’m still not over them), I just like hearing that some couples are re-igniting the old flame. Click inside to learn more! And sidenote– that’s a pic from their first wedding back in 2007.
"No it's not a hologram, motherf*ckers"
Last Friday night, Justin Bieber decided to pay a visit to the Laugh Factory here in LA and was cajoled into jumping up on stage to be made fun of during comedian Chris D’Elia‘s stand up comedy routine. Honestly, D’Elia isn’t really that funny but I guess his jokes make make a few people laugh considering they are meant to make fun of The Biebs. For his part, JB was a pretty good sport thruout the routine … but, eventually, he did feel he had to speak up and defend himself by resorting to misogyny. Naturally, TMZ has video of the whole event … which you can watch in full below. More »
Saints & Sinners, Gods & Idols
Lana Del Rey has finally unleashed upon the world her much talked about/ballyhooed/anticipated short film Tropico online after she premiered the film at an event in Los Angeles, CA last night. The film has a run time of just over 27 minutes and is … well, interesting. The scenes look like they were shot using Instagram filters and opens with cameo appearances by Jesus Christ, John Wayne, Marilyn Monroe, Elvis Presley and Lana in the guise of the Virgin Mary (which isn’t the only religious figure she portrays in this film) … then the really weird (artsy) stuff begins to unfold. If you have the time, it’s worth watching I think. I mean, Hello, we’ve been hearing about this damn Tropico thing for what seems like an eternity so now that it’s out, we might as well see what all the hoopla is about. Along with the premiere of this short film, Lana has announced that she is readying the release of her next album. Click below to find out more about her new music to come. More »
