And Away She Goes ...
Back in February we first learned that Beyoncé is hitting the road this year with a new world tour titled The Mrs. Carter Show. Last night, in Belgrade, Serbia, Bey officially kicked off her worldwide tour … and boy did she bust out some interesting costumes for the event. As you can see below, Beyoncé rocked some of her usual, flowy concert outfits … but she also busted out a look that she’s never rocked before. For some ungodly reason, Bey thought it would be sweet to wear a bodysuit covered in jewels that accentuate her boobies … it’s quite a look. Check out the photos below and see for yourselves. More »

'What Would You Be Without Me?'
Okay, so last time I checked I was not a huge Fantasia fan or anything. However. When I saw that Kelly Rowland and Missy Elliot were featured on her new track, Without Me, you know I had to checkie out. The 2004 American Idol winner has a new album (Side Effects) coming out later this month, and apparently she’s been putting in some serious werk on the music. Which is a good thing. I feel like she’s been caught up in so much drama over the years, I kinda forgot she made actual music. So this is good. Oh, and the song is kind of awesome! Click inide for more!

So … I survived my first Coachella Music and Arts Festival intact … and I am very happy to report that I had a lot of fun. Despite the scorching heat and the hordes of people, I managed to enjoy my one and only day at Coachella much more than I was expecting. Ollie, Caleb and I left LA around noon and made our way into the desert for the music fest. We made a pit stop in Cabazon, CA for lunch and then rolled into Indio, CA right in time to catch Johnny Marr‘s set. The rest of the day was spent relaxing as much as possible, catching other live performances, meeting up with friends, meeting a PITNB reader and then closing out the night with a stellar performance by How to Destroy Angels. I made it hope by 5AM this morning but, yeah, it was totally worth it all. More »
So Why Am I So Bummed Out Right Now?
So. Out of nowhere, my beloved Frank Ocean goes and releases a video for one of the songs from his critically-acclaimed debut album, Channel Orange. Frank shared the Lost video on his Tumblr today and it was a total surprise (although it is interesting considering he’s in the middle of a lawsuit over the production on the song). I should be psyched, right? Thrilled, OMGing everywhere, right? Okay, well. I am. The video is fun, I love the song, blah blah blah. But I have one huge problem– my effing favorite verse is totally missing from the damn video! Like, WTF happened to the third verse? I’m all waiting for it to come so I can belt out the whole shizz and nothing! Okay, I know it’s not a huge deal, and the full version is everywhere. But superfans like me freak out over stuff like that! It’s fine. I’m fine. Peep the video for more!

The Next Best Thing
Earlier today I blogged that I am on my way to the 2013 Coachella Music and Arts Festival today but if YOU cannot be at the fest in person, at least you can watch the whole thing for FREE online as it happens. For the second year in a row, the folks at Coachella are streaming the festival LIVE on You Tube. The embed above is the one provided for the livestream but if it doesn’t work properly, you can click HERE to update the stream if needed. The livestreaming begins at 3:30PM PT (6:30PM ET) today and will run all weekend long. If you can’t be in the desert, sweatin’ with us crazies, then this is the next best thing. Enjoy!

At last … at long last … I am FINALLY making the trek out into the desert to partake of the annual Coachella Music and Arts Festival for the very first time. In the almost 7 years that I have been living in SoCal, I have never once attended Coachella. As I’ve said many times over the years, I’m not a big festival person … and the idea of sweating in the 90+ degree desert heat with thousands and thousands of other people just never appealed to me. That being said, I must confess … I’ve always wondered what it would be like to attend so … since friends of mine are performing the festival this year, I figured it’d be the perfect time to give it a go.

'All Around The World People Want To Be Loved'
With all of the drama surrounding Justin Bieber recently, I kinda forgot that he makes music! So this was a nice reminder. Bieber just dropped the visuals to his song All Around The World, and I know Beliebers everywhere are having the best Friday ever. An ode of sorts to his fans, Bieber takes us (you guessed it) all around the world with this video, and we also get a welcome appearance from Ludacris (although I hope Biebs doesn’t think I’m giving him his Hip-Hop street cred back any time soon, lol). Peep the video for more! Oh, and… believe.
