A Legendary Night At The Rose Bowl

The TV Guide

Yesterday was a long day and a late night … but it was hella fun all the while. Justin Timberlake and Jay Z brought their Legends of the Summer Tour to the massive Rose Bowl stadium in Pasadena, CA last night and I was among the 50,000+ people in attendance. My friend Courtney and I started our day in the early afternoon because we had to beat the traffic of people making their way to the Rose Bowl last night. We got to Pasadena around 4pm for an early dinner and then had to wait for about 35 minutes in a massive line to get shuttled to the stadium for the show. Once there, we had to wait in another massive line just to get in and then had to compete with 49,998 other people just to get to our seats. I know it sounds daunting and exhausting, and it was, but the amazing concert last night more than made up for the hassle. More »

Watch: Justin Bieber Covers Eminem’s ‘Lose Yourself During A Performance In Detroit

You Probably Won't Enjoy This. At All.
And Other Things Justin Bieber Should Probably Never Do

LMAO… when I first watched this I had a flashback to that moment in 300. You remember the part, where it’s about to go down in a really awful way between Theron and The Queen: This will not be over quickly. You will not enjoy this. I’m not your King. Y’all, this video of Justin Bieber covering Eminem‘s Lose Yourself (in Detroit, no less!!!) is going to be a difficult– if not traumatic– experience for some of you. Of all the horrific things he has done, this might take the cake. Even though it’s only 24 seconds long, it will not be over quickly [enough]. You will not enjoy this. He is not our Eminem. LOL! Peep the video for more… and. Well. I apologize. DirectLyrics posted it and I just had to share. Forgive me.

P.S. Apparently, some folks in the audience started to boo him, so there’s that to celebrate…?

The Cover Art For Mariah Carey’s Unreleased New Album Leaks To The Internets

The Art of Leaking Out

Mariah Carey was supposed to release her new album, The Art of Letting Go, last Tuesday July 23 but because she still wanted to record new music for the release, the album was pushed back to an as-yet undetermined date. Because of the late timing of the delay, the promo machine set in place for the album’s July 23 release date was already in full swing. Target was ready to promote the album’s release in last weekend’s newspaper flyer which featured the album’s album cover. The circular did NOT go into publication but a black and white proof has leaked its way online, giving us our first look at the album art for The Art of Letting Go … which you can see below. More »

Courtney Love Stumbles Into SoCal, Performs Her Heart & Lungs Out

The TV Guide

My good friend Josh Rosebrook and I have a thing that we do … we like to see Courtney Love in concert whenever she comes to town. We don’t expect the shows to be good or anything but, mostly, we like to hope that Courtney will surprise us and deliver a truly outstanding performance. Last night, Josh and I made our way north into the suburbs of LA to Agora Hills to see Courtney Love play The Canyon Club last night. While I would love to say that Courtney put on a fantastic show, I cannot … because she did not … but Josh and I had a blast nonetheless. Even tho Courtney didn’t sound great (at all), you could tell that her heart was into the performance … and that, in the end made all the difference. More »

‘Madonna’ Turns 30 Years Old Today

All Hail the Reigning QUEEN of the Universe

Madonna turns 30 years old today. Not the queen of the universe Madonna Louise Ciccone but her self-titled debut album Madonna … it was released 30 years ago today on July 27, 1983 … and the world was forever changed. As the expertly written article quoted below by Entertainment Weekly writer Kyle Anderson brilliantly explains, Madonna‘s impact on the world wasn’t immediate … but it was a slow burn that was ignited in the Summer of ’83 and continues to blaze even to this day where Madonna reigns supreme as the best selling female artist of all time. It’s really hard to imagine that Maddy‘s debut album came out 3 decades ago (particularly because I have vivid memories of the album’s impact when I was a young child) but it’s true … Madonna turns 30 today, so homage must be paid to her royal Madgesty.

Watch: Jay Z Releases A Trailer For The ‘Picasso Baby’ Video

Featuring Judd Apatow, Alan Cumming & Marina Abramović
'An unprecedented performance experience'

I can safely say that I am not ready for this new Jay Z/performance art/Alan Cumming- all-up-in-his-videos-movement. This Picasso Baby video really does look like it’s gonna be… different! Which is awesome. A little while back we got to see a bunch of Vines and photos from Jay Z‘s live, 6-hour performance of the new single off Magna Carta Holy Grail, and now the video has a teaser trailer. Although, I think we should stop calling it a “video,” as it’s now been dubbed a performance art film. Judd Apatow, Marina Abramović, and other stars will appear in the film and I’m really looking forward to seeing the final product.

Picasso Baby debuts on HBO Friday, August 2 at 11PM.

Watch: Nine Inch Nails Makes Its LIVE Return In Japan At The Fuji Rock Festival

New Music Has Been Debuted
Ghosts of who we used to be I can feel them come for me

Earlier this year Trent Reznor announced that Nine Inch Nails would be returning with a new album and tour this year. The album won’t be out until September but earlier today (here on this side of the planet when actually it’s tomorrow on that side of the planet) NIN played their first live show of their Tension 2013 World Tour at the Fuji Rock Festival in Japan. Because I will be seeing the newly reformed Nine Inch Nails live with my own eyes when they play their first US date at Lollapalooza in Chicago, IL next weekend, I have decided to NOT spoil my experience by watching any of the footage from this first performance … but you can click the embed above to watch video of NIN‘s performance of the new song Find My Way. I have not watched any of the video footage that was streamed online so … you’ll have to enjoy the video for me. I did ask my friend Rob Sheridan to send me a few photos from today’s performance and he graciously sent them for sharing here on the blog. Click below to see 3 photos from this first NIN performance which aren’t really spoilery so they’re OK to see if you’re saving yourself, too. More »
