Halfway to her EGOT
Congratulations are in order for Taylor Swift who just won her first Emmy Award! Altho the Emmys won’t be handed out for a couple of weeks, a small number of awards were announced today for categories that won’t be featured when the awards show airs on TV. Among the winners announced today is Taylor Swift’s Emmy for Original Interactive Program for her American Express Unstaged: Taylor Swift Experience which was released earlier this year in conjunction with the release of her music video for Blank Space. Taylor has already won Grammy Awards and now she has an Emmy … meaning that she is halfway to achieving the coveted EGOT status. I’d say this achievement is well worth a hearty congrats, wouldn’t you? More »

“Okay, I have some big news tonight!"
In recent weeks, we have been hearing murmurings that our dear Britney Spears was considering ending her Las Vegas concert residency show Britney: Piece of Me but today we learn officially that reports of her leaving Las Vegas have been greatly exaggerated. Britney announced on stage last night, during her performance of Piece of Me at the Axis Theater inside the Planet Hollywood Hotel and Casino, that she will remain in Vegas for another 2 years. Additionally, Britney sat down with E! News to reveal that the show will get revamped in 2016 with an updated setlist of songs and new set pieces and props. Click below to watch video of Britney making her announcement last night and read what she had to say to E! about the changes she has planned for the next phase of Britney: Piece of Me. More »
And away she goes ...
Yesterday we got to see one last video tease of Madonna‘s Rebel Heart Tour, which got started in Montreal, Quebec last night in front of a sold out audience. Today we get to see a few photos from the opening night of the tour which give us a sense of what kind of show Madonna and her team concocted for this latest concert tour outing. As I mentioned previously, I won’t be able to see Madonna in concert until late next month so I am going to do my best to stay away from seeing too many spoilers before I am able to see the show for myself. That said, I did see a few photos and very short videos on social media last night. Additionally, I checked out and am sharing a collection of photos that were professionally shot at her show in the gallery presented here. At first glance, many of the costumes that Madonna is wearing in this new show look very reminiscent of costumes she wore in previous tours (for whatever reason, Madonna is doing the gypsy-look again this time around) but until I’m able to see the show in full myself, I am reserving judgement. Check out the photos to get a sense of what Madonna‘s Rebel Heart Tour show looks like and see what you think. I’ve been reading really great responses from fans who attended the tour opener last night. I can’t wait to see it all in person for myself :D
Yesterday we got to hear an album sampler of Lana Del Rey‘s forthcoming new album Honeymoon and today we get to hear a track from the album in full. Lana debuted her song Music to Watch Boys To on Apple Music‘s Beats 1 radio station and, of course, the song made its way online immediately after. As you can hear below, Music is another moody taste of what we can expect to hear when Honeymoon is released next week. If you’re up for a slow, swoony musical stroll with Lana Del Rey, then Music to Watch Boys To is just the song for you. Have a listen. More »
'Superstar Wonderful Weirdos'
Last month we learned that Alanis Morissette is releasing a 20th anniversary edition of her iconic Jagged Little Pill album that will include a bonus disc of previously unreleased songs that were recorded during the JLP era but didn’t make the studio album cut. Today, Alanis is giving us our first official listen of one of those previously unreleased songs … a track titled Superstar Wonderful Weirdos. The song has been floating around unofficially for years but this new version sounds mixed and mastered, rather than just a mere demo. Click below to hear Superstar Wonderful Weirdos and get another taste of Alanis Morisette‘s Jagged Little Pill era. More »
A rebirth, apparently
Back in June, Selena Gomez released the audio and official music video for her single Good For You and today she is releasing a whole lot more. Selena is readying the release of her next album, Revival, and is teasing it’s eventual arrival with the unveiling of the album’s cover artwork. As you can see below, Selena is baring more than her soul on the cover of her Revival album … which she released a short time ago on her official Twitter profile. The photo below is mostly SFW since she isn’t really showing anything but she is nekkid nonetheless so, proceed with caution. More »

The TV Guide
SOOOO, yeah … Labor Day. I planned to take it easy and get some things taken care of around the house but what I actually ended up doing instead was pretty much nothing at all. I listened to some records for the early part of the day and then spent the rest of the day/evening/night watching episode after episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation. That show remains one of my all-time faves. And while there are a great many things I could’ve spent my day on, I know I made the right choice sticking with ST: TNG. More »
Last month, Lana Del Rey released two new songs (High By the Beach and Terrence Loves You) and announced that her new album Honeymoon will be out on September 18. Today we get to see a video sampler that features song snippets from her Honeymoon album. With just 10 days to go until LDR unleashes her next album upon us, she is giving us a taste of what we can expect. I like what I hear and I am very excited to hear more. Please enjoy.
