As I mentioned yesterday, I had a date with my Detroit homeboy Andrew W.K. last night at his concert performance at the Avalon in Hollywood, CA. I’ve been an AWK fan for years, ever since he made it big with his debut album I Get Wet 10 years ago. When last I saw Andrew in concert, I was still living in Detroit so I’ve been itching to see the man in concert for a long time. Last night’s show as so fun, well worth the wait. Click below to see some photos and watch video of his performance of a new song titled Head Bang. More »

"It''s The Way We Move"
Rihanna has been in London the past few weeks working on her new fashion reality TV show. She has also been attending fashion shows and showing up around town with her new blonde look. Well, Ri-Ri is still as blonde as can be, and this week she took to the stage of the U.K talk show, The Jonathan Ross Show, to perform her new track, “Talk That Talk” strutting her sexiest moves. Earlier in the show, which aired in the U.K. on Saturday, Jonathan questioned Rihanna about her racy dance moves. She had explained that her dancing is a part of her Barbadian culture. Check out her new single and those signature moves… More »

Mama Mimi is Back On Stage
In recent weeks we’ve seen photos of new mom Mariah Carey at awards shows, in a public service announcement and in the recording studio … but today, we get to see her BACK on the concert performance stage.

Adele Is One Of 'Em...
It has been announced today that Adele is set for another honor, she will be a part of the closing ceremony of the summer Olympics in London. Executive producer of the opening and closing ceremonies confirmed that she will feature in the August 12th show. The theme of ‘A Symphony of British Music’ is a way of spanning the music genres, from classical to rock and in between, it is supposed to be a showcase of British talent. Lets be honest, for a lot of people the Olympics is all about the spectacle of the Opening and Closing ceremonies and not about the sports. (Yes, I’m one of those people!) We know Adele is one of the acts, but other details of who will be performing live at the closing ceremony are still undisclosed. Who else do you think will be part of the British showcase? More »
Sweet Home President
Putting the election campaign aside, I think we have a pretty cool President. During a blues concert for Black History Month at the White House on Tuesday night, President Obama took the microphone and sang alongside music icons, B.B. King and Mick Jagger. You might remember that Obama is no stranger to taking the microphone to belt out a few tunes- he sang Al Green’s ‘Let’s Stay Together’ at a fundraiser in January. Watch his bluesy performance of “Sweet Home Chicago”. He isn’t to bad.. More »
Spice Up Your Life (In Other Ways)
A few weeks ago we heard the exciting rumor that the Spice Girls may be reuniting this year. It was first suggested that it would be for the London Olympics, then Melanie Brown suggested that the much anticipated reunion would be as a part of Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations. The news spread like wildfire and caused MUCH excitement. Both events are a big deal for the U.K. and the Spice Girls are a beloved British pop act, so even though the news was never confirmed it was feasible and believeable and oh so, wonderful. Today the hope has been crushed though as Victoria Beckham has confirmed a proposed Spice Girls reunion this year “isn’t going to happen” because the singers are too busy. More »
... But Manages to Make It to the Concert Stage Later That Night
Earlier today we learned a bit about Whitney Houston‘s funeral yesterday, specifically the amazing eulogy delivered by actor Kevin Costner, and right now we learn about ex-husband Bobby Brown‘s involvement (or lack, thereof) in yesterday’s special event. After it was in doubt that Bobby would even be allowed to attend the ceremony at all, he managed to be allowed to attend Whitney‘s funeral yesterday with two guests. Bobby showed up with 9 people and was turned away by security. After he was, eventually, allowed access again, he took issue with the seating arrangements and decided to leave altogether. Brown missed the funeral altogether and only stayed long enough to kiss Whitney‘s casket and then leave. Later that night, he was on stage performing in concert. Class act, all the way. More »

Early last month I passed along the exciting info that visionary musician Björk was planning a 10 concert residence in NYC as part of her Biophilia Live Tour. Last night I was able to attend the 4th concert performance of Björk‘s NYC residency at the New York Hall of Science in Queens, NY. Over the years, I’ve missed out on a lot of Björk concerts (I used to have the WORST luck with show cancelations) but I was able to see her on her Voltaïc: The Volta Tour when she performed at Radio City Music Hall back in 2007 and KNEW I had to see her again as soon as possible. Last night was my chance … and it was a GLORIOUS performance. More »
"You Chew Me Up And Spit Me Up"
There have been a lot of Grammy stories today, as to be expected… and here is one more for ya. There are a few reports going around about Katy Perry’s performance last night because her new song (which was leaked a few months ago) seemed to be a direct reference to her divorce from Russell Brand. The song, and performance, did appear to be an empowerment anthem, in what was her first performance on TV since they split. Watch the performance again and notice the lyrics this time…it is a very timely release. Girl power or girl damaged? More »
