A Wonderful Date With Gillian (And Lynda Carter)

The TV Guide

Back in March of 2009 my good friend Gillian and I went to the Catalina Jazz Club to see Wonder Woman actress Lynda Carter live in concert. Last night, we returned to the Catalina Club to see our girl live in concert again. For those of you who don’t know, Lynda Carter was a singer before she famously became Wonder Woman on TV in the late 70′s/early 80′s. For the past few years, she’s made a return to singing and Gillian and I became HUGE fans. When I found out that Lynda Carter was performing again, I knew we had to see her … and we had a blast last night. More »

First Listen/OMG: Jay-Z Just Hopped On Kendrick Lamar’s ‘Bitch, Don’t Kill My Vibe’

It's Official: Everybody Loves Kendrick
Compton Meets Brooklyn

OMGOMGOMGOMG. Yespleasemorethankyou/I’ve lit’rally been waiting for this moment since Kendrick Lamar‘s debut album dropped back in October. The album was/is so damn good, I couldn’t help but wonder why Jay-Z wasn’t on it somewhere, lol. But here he is! As y’all know, Bitch, Don’t Kill My Vibe is one of my absolute favorite songs… of the century. I even got caught up in an intense, [totally one-sided] beef with Lady Gaga over the video she [unnecessarily] released for the song, after she decided she didn’t want it to be on Kendrick‘s album. But who needs Gaga when Jigga‘s on the remix?!?! Producer Young Guru (who is Jay-Z‘s everything) just premiered the Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe remix at SXSW and it’s kind of a big deal. I love that Jay-Z‘s on it, and I love that it’s a real, live remix with a new verse from K-Dot and everything. The best part of the whole thing is that I get to imagine Jay-Z walking around his house singing the hook to himself. Love it. Peep the video for more! Kendrick really is, officially, the hottest MC in the game!

Watch: Justin Timberlake Performs ‘Suit & Tie’ And ‘Mirrors’ On ‘Saturday Night Live’

Plus He Gives A Little Shouts-Out To Kanye... LOL
'My hits so sick got rappers acting dramatic'

So last night Justin Timberlake hosted Saturday Night Live and officially joined the SNL Five-Timer’s Club. We’ll check out some of the skits from the episode in a little bit, but I had to get this video up of him performing Suit & Tie with Jay-Z (who looked adorable, BTW). JT totally, not-so-subtly responded to Kanye West‘s diss of the new song. Y’all remember Kanye came out a while back and said he wasn’t feelin’ the Suit & Tie movement (and many of us saw where he was coming from, as an artist), so JT responded by changing some of the lyrics in his second verse. Instead of Sh-t so sick/Got a hit and picked up a habit, he sings My hits so sick/Got rappers acting dramatic. LMAO. Awwww shizz! The beef is officially on y’all, lol! And now, we are forced to choose sides. Sigh. Well, y’all should already know I’m on Team Yeezy, even though I do like JT‘s new singles. Peep the video above for more and click inside to check out Justin‘s performance of Mirrors.
