#ThrowbackThursday: Here Is Concert Video Of Green Day Performing In High School Back In 1990

Way Back When
Before they were Famous

Over the past weekend, Green Day was formally inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as part of the Class of 2015 (the ceremony will be televised at a later date) but today we get to check out the band WAY back in the day when they were still in high school, playing punk shows in the parking lot. Video of a full concert performed by Green Day at Pinole Valley High School here in California on May 10, 1990 is making the rounds and it shows how the guys started their journey to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Featured is frontman Billie Joe Armstrong and bassist Mike Dirnt along with original drummer John Kiffmeyer — who all attended Pinole Valley HS (tho, Billie Joe did not graduate) — performing a full show in their high school parking lot which included songs that would eventually end up on their albums 39/Smooth (1990) and Kerplunk! (1992). This is my fave era of Green Day … from their punk rock beginnings right up to their smash major label debut Dookie. They were just so effing rad. The video above is almost an hour long but it’s worth your time if you have some to spare this Throwback Thursday. Click below to check out a special message written by Billie Joe to the legion of Green Day fans thanking them for their support over the years. BJ included a rad throwback photo that includes longtime Green Day drummer Tré Cool. More »

Those Hollywood Nights

The TV Guide

Last night, I met up with my friends Eileen and Caleb for a dinner hang that we have been planning for a few weeks now. We decided at Caleb’s birthday party a few weeks ago that the 3 of us needed to get together and catch up on things. After dinner, we made our way into Hollywood to see our girl Hustle Roses play a late night show. My night with my friends was so chill, it was a great way to spend my Wednesday night. More »

Watch: Britney Spears Announces That She Will Perform ‘Pretty Girls’ Live At The Billboard Music Awards

"Be sure to tune in on May 17"

Just a couple of days ago, we got to see photos of our dear Britney Spears on the streets of LA filming the music video for her new single with Iggy Azalea titled Pretty Girls. Today we learn from Britney herself that she and Iggy will be performing their new song LIVE on the stage of The Billboard Music Awards. The BBMAs take place in Las Vegas, home of Britney‘s show Piece of Me, so it makes complete sense that she would choose that awards show to perform her new single live for the first time ever. Click below to watch Britney‘s announcement video and MAKE SURE you are watching The Billboard Music Awards on May 17 to see Pretty Girls performed live. More »

Watch: Kanye West Made A Surprise Appearance At Coachella To Perform ‘All Day’ With The Weeknd

Kanye is the new Madonna
Yeezus blesses Coachella with his presence

Last weekend, Madonna made a surprise appearance at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival when she appeared on stage during Drake‘s headlining performance to suck face with him. Last night, Kanye West was the big surprise performer when he hopped up on stage to perform his new song All Day with The Weeknd during their set. As I understand it, The Weeknd did a cover of Kanye‘s 808s & Heartbreak during their set and that’s when Yeezus came out on stage. In addition to performing All Day, he also performed Can’t Tell Me Nothing, I Don’t Like (Chief Keef cover) and Black Skinhead. Click the embed above to enjoy Kanye‘s performance of All Day and see what you missed out in the desert of Indio, CA last night.

A Night Out With The Girls

The TV Guide

Last night I met up with my friends Ollie and Amelia for a fun little hang in DTLA where we grabbed dinner then saw a show. Because we are such big fans of her music and because I was really impressed when I saw her in concert a couple of years ago, we were all very excited to see Azealia Banks in concert at Club Nokia at LA Live. Believe me, I am not a fan of many of the things that Banks says in interviews or on social media but her music is really amazing and her live performances are absolute fire. She was amazing last night, like truly, so I’m glad that we got to see her in concert together. More »

Mac Sabbath Slays, Chvrches Rules

The TV Guide

Last night, I finally got to see the LA cover band Mac Sabbath live in concert and I am very happy to report that it was truly one of the most fun concerts I’d been to in a very long time. Mac Sabbath is a Black Sabbath cover band that dresses as demonic McDonald’s characters. They play up the McD’s theme very well in the look and feel of their shows and even change the lyrics to Black Sabbath songs to make them even better. I went to the show with my friend Eileen and her new man Kevin. Afterward, I hightailed it back to Hollywood to see Chvrches play a late night DJ set at Sound Nightclub … which kept me out until 3AM. Ugh. It was a long but very fun night. More »

Watch: Britney Spears Called A Rude Fan A ‘F*cking Asshole’ In Las Vegas Last Night

You really don't want to step to her

After some time off for some much needed rest as well as time to film the music video for her new single Pretty Girls, our dear Britney Spears returned to Las Vegas, NV last night to resume performances of her Britney: Piece of Me show at the Planet Hollywood Hotel and Casino. At one point during her show, tho, a very rude fan reportedly yelled out something at Britney which caused her to refer to said “fan” as a “fucking asshole”. Unfortunately, Britney‘s mic was still on and everyone in The Axis theater heard what she said … whoops! More »

Here Are A Lot Of Photos Of Madonna Sucking Face With Drake At Coachella

“Oh, shit. What the fuck just happened?”

Earlier today we saw video of Madonna sucking “hella face” with Drake during his headlining set at the Coachella Music and Arts Festival in Indio, CA last night and right now we get to see a bunch of photos of said kiss because, yeah, it deserves a second (and third) look. Madonna came out on stage to steal the spotlight for a bit during Drake‘s set and she really put one on him. After she nearly sucked his lungs out of his throat, she saunted off stage like a BOSS. It was Drake‘s reaction, tho, that really got people talking. He seems to have cringed after the kiss and very clearly wiped his mouth (apparently he didn’t like the taste of her lipgloss or whatever?) … haha. I know some people think he wasn’t into it but I think he was definitely into it. My guess is that Madonna managed to suck some youth out of Mr. Drake, enough to keep her going for a few more years so … it was a win/win situation for everyone. Whether the kiss was welcome or not, it’s the only thing about Coachella that everyone is talking about so … Madonna wins again.

Actually, he jumped into Swan Lake

Kanye West is currently in Armenia with his wife and daughter on a family holiday and last night decided he wanted to put on a free concert in the streets of Yerevan, Armenia. I dunno, maybe he was touched by the Holy Spirit, maybe he was just itchin’ to cause a scene … whatever the case was, Yeezus took to the streets to perform a full show for his Armenian fans. At one point, he jumped into Swan Lake so that more people could get a better view of his performance … it was madness. There were many cameras on hand to capture the moment … click below to watch video, see photos and watch — if you like — his entire Armenian street concert. More »
