Last night was a very fun night for me. First, thanks to PITNB reader Stacy, I was able to attend the taping of Jimmy Kimell Live last night that featured Nine Inch Nails making their network TV debut as they promote the release of the new album Hesitation Marks. After the taping, I met up with my dear Josh Rosebrook to see Mazzy Star in concert at the Wiltern Theater. OMG. Two of my all-time fave bands in the same night, I could hardly believe it. I snapped some photos and film some video, which you can check out below. More »

My big week of concerts continued last night when I made my way to the Staples Center to see Selena Gomez perform live on her Stars Dance Tour. I’m not the biggest Selena fan but I do think she is incredibly cute and she reminds me so much of Britney Spears when she started out so, yeah, I decided I wanted to go out and see what her concert would be like. For the most part, I’m glad I went but honestly, it wasn’t the best show I’ve ever seen. I had a good time but it was, by no means, a must see show for me. More »

After a six year break from releasing English language albums, Céline Dion is back this week with a new album titled Loved Me Back to Life. In a new interview with omg! Insider, Céline talks about the release of her new album — which is all well and good — but it’s only when she is asked about Britney Spears‘s upcoming concert residency in Las Vegas that the interview gets really good ;) Click the video above to watch the interview and make sure you watch to the very end for the good stuff.
This Is AMAZING
Kanye West has made a reputation of his arrogance but way back in 2002, he was once a young, hungry and very humble musician trying to launch his career. MTV has released an hour-long raw, uncut interview with Kanye from back in the day that gives us a look at the rap superstar that we are unaccustomed to seeing. West, of course, mentions his mother right at the start of the interview but he goes on to talk about how he creates music and comes across as a nice, approachable and humble guy. It’s fascinating. I know an hour-long video clip is quite a time commitment but you have to watch at least a portion of this interview to see what Kanye used to be like before his ego got the better of him. This is a great video, I think you’ll enjoy it.

In what I expect will come as no surprise whatsoever to anyone at all we learn today that Lady Gaga will reportedly become the first popstar to perform in outer space. According to a new report out today, Gaga has agreed to appear at the 2015 Zero G Colony Music Festival in New Mexico where she will fly into space on a Virgin Galactic ship to perform a song on the shuttle. Honestly, I’m not at all familiar with this festival but I am aware of the Virgin Galactic flights that will take folks into space (for a very hefty fee) starting next year. I have to say … I’m usually unimpressed with Gaga‘s outlandish antics but this performance in space sounds insanely cool. More »
On Sunday, our dear Britney Spears released her new single Perfume to much fan and critical acclaim. Today we learn from the song’s producer Dr. Luke that there is a second version of the song that he describes as “rawer” and “less produced” … leading some to guess that this alternate version of the song may be acoustic. I, personally, was BLOWN AWAY by how different Perfume is from all of Britney‘s previous work … I can only imagine what this “rawer” version of the song sounds like! Read on to see exactly what Dr. Luke has to say about this alternate version of Perfume. More »

Last night I made my way to the El Rey Theatre to see the phenomenal Charli XCX in concert and I have to tell you, I had the best time ever. Charli was supposed to play her LA show back in September but the tour got a bit delayed and last night was our make-up date. Altho I’ve seen Charli open up for Marina and the Diamonds before, it wasn’t until she put out her debut album True Romance that I really got an appreciation for her talent. Her show last night was far too short for me but it was damn sweet and very fun — from even before she went on stage! I snapped some photos and shot some video, which you can check out below. More »

"There's magic everywhere you go"
Early last month we got to see the very fun photospread that boyband McFly did for Attitude magazine and today we learn that the lads have a new single and music video out. All grown up, McFly are not a bonafide manband in the just-released video for their single Love Is On The Radio. Love is a fun, poppy track that I’m certain longtime McFly fans will love. Altho it’s really not my brand of pop music, I can appreciate that McFly are still doing their thing. The guys look great in this video, I think you will agree, so it’s nice to have them still on the scene doing what they love. Check out the video above for Love Is On The Radio and see what you think. Does this new track/video satisfy you McFly fans out there?
