Beyoncé Helps NYC Celebrate The 4th Of July

Independence Woman

Another 4th of July has come and gone here in the US but last night all of New York City was alight with rockets’ red glare and star-spangled banners. And right smack dab in the middle of all of the celebratory hoopla was a very special lady. No, not the Statue of Liberty (altho, she was there, too) … I’m talking about popstar Beyoncé. Bey was the featured performer on NBC‘s 4th of July fireworks spectacular … click below to see some photos and video of Beyoncé celebrating our nation’s independence as only she can. More »

Move Over Jem, There’s A New Hologram In Town

The TV Guide

Yesterday afternoon, Darion and I made our way downtown to attend the 2011 Anime Expo going on at the Convention Center this weekend so that we could attend the Hatsune Miku concert. Hatsune Miku, you ask? Well, she is the world’s first hologram popstar. She is a computer generated singer who has been all the rage in Japan for the past few years. Last night’s concert was her first ever here in the US. As a big Jem and the Holograms fan from back in the day, there was no way I was gonna miss seeing this real life hologram concert. More »

Rihanna Gets ‘LOUD’ In Los Angeles

The TV Guide

Last night David and I met up with our friends Ollie, Woody and Darion for a fun concert night at the Staples Center to see Rihanna on her Loud Tour. Darion and I saw Rihanna on tour last year so we were very excited to see her perform again this year. I managed to stay away from photos and videos of this tour so as not to spoil the show and was very happy to see that Rihanna‘s live show changed pretty dramatically from last year to this year. Click below to see some photos of Ri Ri‘s live performance last night. More »

A Nice Day For A ‘Blood Wedding’

The TV Guide

For the most part, yesterday was a very nice and relaxing day … but last night, I was quite the bizzy little bee. First, David and I made our way to the Odyssey Theater here in LA to see our good friend Josh perform on the opening night of his new play Blood Wedding. After the show, I had to get to West Hollywood to see Missing Persons live in concert at The Viper Room. It was a night of fantastic entertainment, once that I enjoyed very much. More »

Britney Spears WOWs Anaheim With Her ‘Femme Fatale’ Tour

The TV Guide

Last night David and I made our way down to Orange County to see Britney Spears perform on her Femme Fatale Tour at the Honda Center in Anaheim, CA. As you may recall, we got to see the show in full last Monday at the Staples Center in LA but seeing the show once simply wasn’t enough. Because we did the backstage tour last time, we missed seeing Nervo and Jessie and the Boy Toys perform … but last night, we got to watch these up and coming femme fatales open the show and put on FANTASTIC sets! We had a different vantage point for this concert and, to be honest, it put the entire show in an entirely new yet equally amazing light! More »

Watch: Beyoncé Doesn’t Know The Words To Queen’s ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’

Oh, Gurl

Everyone knows that if a pop star decides to cover another artist’s song LIVE in concert, they better know the lyrics to that song but sometimes, well, that doesn’t happen. For example, this weekend Beyoncé performed a Queen cover in France and managed to fumble the lyrics to Bohemian Rhapsody in front of a live audience … and their video cameras. Meh, it happens. Unfortch for B, what happens in France DOESN’T stay in France. Check out the video below. More »
