J. Lo Covers 'No Me Queda Mas'
Back in 1997, Jennifer Lopez portrayed the slain Tejano superstar Selena Quintanilla-Pérez in a biopic film about her life titled simply Selena. It is commonly held that J. Lo‘s performance in that film jump-started her music career which proved to be very successful in the late 90′s/early 00′s. Last night, on Lopez‘s concert stop in Dallas, TX, Jennifer performed a cover of the Selena song No Me Queda Mas in tribute to the late singer … and she managed to win the hearts of every single person in that area. Check out the video and see for yourselves. J. Lo owes a lot to Selena, it’s nice to see her remember and respect that fact.

Yesterday was a very long day for me … in more ways than one. I finally got a very successful long run under my belt and managed to reach a new milestone in my marathon training. Last night, David and I went out for dinner with our friends Adam and Michael. Late last night, I went out with Ollie to a party that didn’t get started until 1AM and was, for all intents and purposes, a veritable hoot. I am a bit wiped out today but yesterday made it all worth it. More »
Scrubs Need Not Apply
Kelly Clarkson busted out another fantastic cover on her concert stop in Bristow, VA this week when she put her spin on the classic 90′s jam No Scrubs by TLC. As you may be well aware, Kelly takes song requests from fans as she tours the country and in the past has covered Britney Spears, No Doubt, Eminem, Carly Rae Jepsen and more. This time around, she takes on TLC and does a pretty kickass job, I think. Check out the video and see what you think.
"I know he's a big fan of mine"
Earlier this month we saw video of Elton John viciously and disgustingly attacking Madonna in an interview with Molly Meldrum on Australian TV. It would seem that Madonna isn’t one to hold a grudge because she graciously dedicated a performance of her Golden Globe-winning song Masterpiece to “Mr. Elton John” during her concert stop in Nice, France. Maddy told the crowd that she “forgives” Elton, tho, she doesn’t say what she forgives him for. It’s *possible* her dedication is a bit of a dig at him because she tells the crowd Masterpiece is for him because she knows “he’s a big fan of [the song]” and is a “big fan of [her]“. MMM HMMM. Whatever the case may be, whatever Madonna‘s intentions may be, it is my personal belief that THIS is the way you handle yourself in public when you are engaged in a pointless feud with someone else. Madonna shows what it takes to be the bigger person and, as a result, further illustrates what a small, small person Elton John really is.

All Kinds Of Sexy
A$AP Rocky may have delayed the release of his debut album LongLiveA$AP (whimper), but that doesn’t mean he’s going into hiding. In fact, he made his first late show appearance on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon and I was sooo excited to watch this video… and then sooo kind of disappointed that he gave a pretty lackluster performance. Still, I could stare at that chocolate brown skin all day (she writes, making sure that the love of her life isn’t watching her as she types or anything awkward like that). Check out ya boy A$AP looking crazy sexy cool, performing Goldie, with The Roots backing him up.
Kelly Says: Here's My Cover, So Listen Maybe?
As Kelly Clarkson‘s tour rolls on, so too does her affinity for performing fun cover songs. Carly Rae Jepsen‘s monster hit Call Me Maybe has been parodied TO DEATH in the past year but during her concert stop in Hershey, PA last weekend at the Mixtape Festival, Kelly put her own personal non-parody stamp on the song by delivering a genuine Clarkson cover. This ain’t no lip-dub, this is Kelly‘s version of the song done acoustically … and brilliantly. Enjoy!

Last night my BFF Darion took me as his guest to a private Q&A and live performance by non other than Alanis Morissette at the Sonos Studio here in LA. As you may know, Alanis is readying the release of her 7th album Havoc and Bright Lights and she teamed up with Sonos to give a few lucky fans an up close and personal introduction to her album. For the first half of the night, Alanis answered some questions about her new album (among other things) and the second half of the night, Alanis performed a short acoustic set of songs. Click below to see some photos and watch video of her performance last night. More »
'When I Leave This World, I'll Leave No Regrets'
A few days ago Trent shared a short clip of this video, and today we get the super-official full version of Beyoncé singing live at the United Nations General Assembly Hall. The performance starts off (appropriately) somber, but really picks up as Queen Bey sings about the change she hopes to be in this world, and the change she hopes to see from the rest of us. Today is World Humanitarian Day. Be present in the world you call home and always remember that a random act of kindness can easily change the world.
AKA For Expressing Herself
The last Madge suit we heard about involved an allegedly hidden sample in Vogue, but this is a lawsuit of a different order. Her MDNA tour stopped in St. Petersburg, Russia on August 9, and Madonna had big plans for her performance. She used the stage to address new laws in Russia that ban so-called gay/lesbian ‘propaganda’ or promotion. After speaking out against this law and the homophobic mentality behind it, Madonna is being sued by Russian anti-gay groups for over $10 million. She has, apparently, corrupted their youth. Deets inside.
