You ready to dance?
Todrick Hall just released a Rihanna mashup, and we cannot get enough of it! In the video, we see four Todricks choreographing a dance to some of RiRi’s biggest hits, but clearly the best part is his clever Instagram layout. The YouTube sensation has covered other Rihanna songs in the past, including a Super Mario version of “Bitch Better Have My Money,” but nothing like this amazing mashup! Watch the video “4 Rihanna” above and enjoy!

Obviously, she kills it
When the day comes that we find something Lady Gaga can’t do, please let me know, because I’m pretty positive this lady is everything. First she was singing, then she was acting and now she’s taken Chic‘s “I Want Your Love” and reworked it with guitarist Nile Rodgers, all for Tom Ford‘s spring/summer 2016 line. The video was released today with Gaga taking over Chic’s iconic vocals, while she a group of very attractive models strut on the runway. But that’s enough talking, why don’t we appreciate it together? More »
He brought his '1989' covers to TDS
Ryan Adams gave his Taylor Swift‘s 1989 covers their late-night debut last night on The Daily Show. Trevor Noah picked Adams for his first musical guest since taking over for Jon Stewart early this week. The singer/songwriter performed “Bad Blood,” “Style, and “Blank Space” (which he dedicated to Sandra Bullock‘s character in the movie The Net), and it was just as great as the album. More »
They've just seen a face
As far as musicians go, Paul McCartney and Beck are pretty high up there, non? So are you prepared for the magic that happens when you bring the two of them together? Oh good! Beck and Paul hit the stage together last night for PETA’s 35th anniversary gala in Hollywood. They dueted on the classics “I’ve Just Seen a Face” and “Drive My Car,” while Paul also soloed on “Let It Be ” and “Blackbird.” At least I think he soloed? There are only Instagram videos of those performances and they only have Paul, so yeah! Let’s go with that. And now, let’s watch them all, shall we? More »

"With a little bit of, uh uh, and a little bit of, uh uh"
Taylor Swift has been having the time of her life on tour this year bringing famous friends on stage to perform with her at her various stops along The 1989 World Tour. As you may know, Taylor most recently brought on stage friends and fellow singers like Alanis Morissette, actresses like Lisa Kudrow and legends like Mick Jagger. Today we learn that, for her second concert performance in St. Louis, MO last night, Taylor brought on stage hometown hero Nelly to perform his 2002 song Hot In Herre with her … and HAIM as back-up dancers/singers. As you can see in the videos below, it looks like everyone involved had a lot of fun last night. More »
Last week we got to hear the new Disclosure song Magnets, which features vocals by Lorde, taken from their new album Caracal (which was released last Friday). Today we get to see the just-released official music video for Magnets which, as you can see above, features some very shady biz. The video is beautifully shot in what looks to be a fabulous home in the Hollywood Hills and it appears to follow the lyrics of the song pretty closely. The more I hear this song, the more I love it. Check out the video and love the song along with me. Enjoy.

'Hurts', so good
Last month — AT LONG LAST — singer JoJo released new music for the first time in EONS when she dropped her new tringle which features 3 new songs. Today we get to check out the official music video for one of those songs, When Love Hurts. As you can see above, JoJo is serving some SERIOUS body … along with some fun armeography. I love this song and the video is fun so I hope you will enjoy. It’s really amazing to have JoJo back among us. I’m looking forward to hearing what’s next from her. Her 3 new songs are good enough to tide us over for a while but … Imma need an album pretty soon.

I know that I do more than my fair share of gushing around here. It seems that whenever I go to a show or participate in an activity, I oftentimes have a hard time toning down my excitement when relaying the story the following day. Most times, it’s a matter of exaggeration but sometimes, my excitedness is warranted … like last night, for example, when Grace Jones absolutely changed my life. I have seen many concerts in my day but there are a select few live performances that have made an impactful mark me. Grace Jones‘s live performance at the Hollywood Bowl was one of those shows. Everything about the concert performance was perfect once Grace hit the stage. While she performed, the super blood moon phased through a lunar eclipse for the last time until 2033 — I am not kidding in any way when I say that the night was full of magic and wonder. More »

And so, the time is drawing ever nearer the time when I have to say goodbye here on Pink is the new Blog. As I announced a couple of weeks ago, September 30 will be my last day writing Pink is the new Blog before the whole thing is handed off to someone else. As the days tick away, I find myself feeling the pang of loss, even tho the end isn’t quite here yet. I’ve done my best to carry on “as usual” in the past couple of weeks (actually, in the past few months going back to when I was notified of the change in blog management), but as the end gets close … it’s getting harder not to put everything I write in context. Yesterday, I got my hands on one of the new rose gold iPhone 6S Plus phones and I picked up a vinyl copy of Chvrches‘s new album Every Open Eye — both shockingly and beautifully pink. PITNB will soon no longer be a part of my life, but pink will always be a very integral part of who I am. More »
