Last night I met up with my friend Eileen for a dinner hang at the Cat & Fiddle Pub in Hollywood (which is closing in a few weeks, I’m sad to say) before I met up with my friend Josh at the Echoplex in Echo Park to see live concert performance of some of the songs from Schoolhouse Rock. Now, I realize that all y’all under 30s probably have no idea what Schoolhouse Rock is or how important it remains to a generation of people but I can assure you, last night’s show was very impactful for me. Dinner with Eileen and the show with Josh conspired to make a Monday night that I won’t soon forget. More »
Taylor Swift opened the 2014 American Music Awards last night with an audacious and very fun performance of her new single Blank Space, currently sitting in the #1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 Singles chart, and as you can see above … she was only the perfect choice for the honor. Not only is Taylor ruling the pop music world right now, she appears to be having the BEST TIME EVER doing so. There were a lot of great performances last night on the AMAs but Taylor‘s has to be one of my fave. Enjoy.
She put it ALL out there
Earlier this month we saw the music video for Selena Gomez‘s new single The Heart Wants What It Wants which is very clearly a painful love song to her ex-boyfriend (for now) Justin Bieber. Last night on the American Music Awards, Selena performed The Heart Wants in front of millions of people on the awards show and basically ripped her heart from her chest so that she could expose it for all to see. First the video, then this performance … it’s very obvious that Selena‘s heart wants Justin Bieber in the worst way. Cry. Check out Selena‘s performance above and make sure you keep a box of Kleenex handy.
There will be glitter.
Back in October we hear whisperings about a Katy Perry performance during the Pepsi Super Bowl XLIX halftime show, but the news hadn’t been confirmed yet. Perry was reportedly gearing up for a performance alongside Rihanna and Coldplay, and I guess a big part of her appeal is her fun and bubbly, mostly non-controversial image. As a result of players being charged with child abuse and domestic violence, the NFL has been coming under fire lately, and they need a drama-free night. So Katy Perry is, officially, headlining the halftime show! CLick inside for more!

Yesterday was a very fun, pretty busy day for me. In the early afternoon, I met up with my friends Elena and Andreas in Hollywood so that we could see the new Disney Animation film Big Hero 6 at the El Capitan Theater. Afterward, I paid a visit to my superstar hairstylist and BFF Josh Rosebrook for a much-needed haircut and then I made my way downtown to see FKA Twigs live in concert. The movie was great, the company was even better … and the concert was truly an amazing experience. I had a really great Saturday, I have to say. More »

Last night, I met up with my friend Amelia for a quick drink/catch-up sesh at The Well before we made our way into the Hollywood Palladium to see Tegan and Sara live in concert. I love me some Tegan and Sara so I had been looking forward to the show for some time now. And because I never get to spend as much time as I like with Amelia, I’m so glad that she was free last night to see the show with me. We had the best time ever … probably aided by the fact that the beers we drank were so large ;) More »
"I don't want anybody else"
Tori Amos has made her way down to Australia for a new concert tour there and over the weekend, she performed in Melbourne. During the Lizard Lounge portion of her show, she covered the 1991 song I Touch Myself by The Divinyls. Divinyls singer Chrissy Amphlett passed away in April of last year and, as you can hear above, Tori dedicated her performance to her memory. I love the song, I love Tori and I think you will love this performance.
Never a dull moment when K-Dot takes the stage
You can’t see me right now, but my brow is furrowed. I’m watching Kendrick Lamar‘s performance of i on last night’s Saturday Night Live, and I’m honestly not sure what to think. Many people are praising his performance, but okay—first. The black contacts are terrifying. Necessarily so? Perhaps. And, for a second, I found myself wondering if my boy was on one. Maybe it was all the sweat and the hair, and I got some ODB vibes, but it was weird. His second performance of Pay For It (featuring Jay Rock) was a little more my speed.I’m very curious to hear what you guys think. Peep the video above for i and click inside for Pay For It.
Plus, "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay" cast showed up!
So I missed Saturday Night Live last night, because I was busy recovering mentally from the madness that was the Lifetime Aaliyah movie. I’m starting to think I missed a really good episode because the skits I’m watching now are hilarious—my fave being The Dudleys. It’s a really funny critique on the current state of TV, especially in a world where social media reigns supreme. Click inside for more!
Ain't no party
Way back in 2012 we first heard rumblings that the iconic ’90s pop group S Club 7 were planning to reunite … but nothing came of those rumors and all hope was lost. Then last month, out of the complete blue, we learned OFFICIALLY that S Club 7 would be reuniting for a performance at the BBC Children In Need event and last night … the impossible happened. All 7 members of S Club 7 reunited to perform a medley of their biggest hits. The video above speaks for itself because, really, what else can one say about such a momentous moment? See, friends, dreams really do come true if you believe hard enough.
