"I love being a musician."
Prince, the Purple One himself, reigned supreme at the South by Southwest Music Festival in Austin, TX on when he closed out the week with an E-P-I-C 2 1/2 hour performance at the Samsung Galaxy party on Saturday night. Prince played a set so long that he outlasted many of the younger folks who came out to see his show. The setlist wasn’t the expected string of hit songs, rather it was a fluid, organic jam session that spanned various music stylings, with various costume changes. Speaking to the crowd, Prince proclaimed himself a “servant” to the fans … and boy, did he deliver. Click below to see a photo of Prince at SxSw and read some deets about his stellar performance.

Last night, he took his performance to another level.

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 »

It's Official: Everybody Loves Kendrick
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!
