"I wanna thank all of y'all for coming out tonight"
A few days ago we learned that Bobby Brown reluctantly agreed to fulfill a contractual obligation to perform in Australia next month despite the fact that his daughter Bobbi Kristina remains comatose in a long-term medical facility. Today we learn that Bobby decided to get back up on the concert stage sooner than was previously believed. Bobby made his way to LA yesterday for a performance at The Soul Food Festival and as you can see below, he got up on stage and performed like a champ. IMHO, getting back to work is probably a very good idea for him right now, even tho his daughter remains in a coma. For his well-being, I think he has made the right decision to get back to work.

Right now I’m having one of those “How long has this been on the internet and why haven’t I heard about it yet?” moments. Anne Hathaway lip synced the baby bejeezus out of Miley Cyrus‘ Wrecking Ball on SPIKE TV’s Lip Sync Battle show, and I must not have been on Facebook… or Twitter… or even alive when it first happened. It is beyond epic. And the only bad part is that it was so disgustingly good and amazing, that it completely eclipsed Emily Blunt‘s Piece of my Heart rendition. Both need to be seen, experienced, and relived over and over again. Click inside for more!
Out this summer
Carly Rae Jepsen has released two singles HERE and HERE from her forthcoming second album, which is due this summer and today we finally learn the title of said album. CRJ has been keeping info about her sophomore album pretty close to the vest thus far which I think is meant to entice but kinda feels more annoying than anything else. Nonetheless, she has finally decided that the time is right for her to reveal the title of her next album. Carly made the big reveal on her official Twitter profile and has decided to name her album … More »

Last night, I met up with Darion and Omar at The Roxy to see our absolutely favorite pop star Yelle in concert and we had an amazing time. Yelle is performing at Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival this weekend and next weekend and she booked a pair of LA-area concerts so that fans could see her live without having to deal with the pain in the ass that is the Coachella festival. I’ve been a fan of Yelle for a few years now and I still don’t know what she’s signing … but I do know I love her music and she puts on a fun ass show. More »

Jenny Lewis played an intimate pre-Coachella concert at the Echoplex in Echo Park last night in front of a sold out house of very happy fans. Tix for this show sold out in minutes and I was very lucky to score one. I got to see Jenny when she opened for Ryan Adams late last year and I’ve been newly obsessed with her ever since. Her setlist last night included songs from her full catalog — from the Rilo Kiley days to her new album The Voyager. Last night’s show was really pretty perfect in every single way. More »

She also did stand-up comedy, but let's not talk about that right now
Madonna made an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon on Thursday night to do a little promo for her new album Rebel Heart and her world tour that will follow later this year. In addition to a short sit down interview (and embarrassingly disastrous and wholly unwatchable stand up comedy routine — which we’ll discuss later today), Madonna delivered a pair of live performances on the show. First up, Madonna teamed up with Jimmy Fallon and The Roots to perform her classic song Holiday with classroom instruments … you can watch that performance in the embed above. Below, you can watch Madonna‘s very extravagant performance of Bitch I’m Madonna. Folks, if you watch anything today, it must be the performance video below. More »
Tiny is better than nothing at all ;)
Earlier today we saw a pair of behind the scenes photos shared by Britney Spears from the set of the music video for her new single with Iggy Azalea, Pretty Girls. Right now we get our FIRST LISTEN of the song by way of a fan shot video from the music video set. Britney and Iggy are filming Pretty Girls right now here in LA and an industrious fan with a mobile phone managed to film a tiny portion of the shoot … which includes a tiny sample of the song. It’s not much to listen to, unfortch, but it’s better than nothing. Watch the clip above AND DON’T BLINK. Then, click below to see a photo shot by a fan of Britney and Iggy tooling around in their Jeep on the streets of LA today. More »
A new day is dawning for Mimi
Now that Mariah Carey has a new management team and a new record label, it would seem that she is ready to kick off a new era of her music career. MC posted a photo on her official Twitter profile yesterday that may hint that she is prepping the release of a new single … possibly titled Infinity. Mimi hashtagged #Infinity in the caption to the photo below which many fans believe is a hint of a possible single title. Click below to see the photo in question and speculate along with me. More »
Truly, this is the best thing ever
First, Carly Rae Jepsen got mashed-up with Nine Inch Nails back in 2013 … and today we learn that CRJ and NIN have been mashed-up again — and this one, by far, is the better of the two. An artist named YITT has mashed-up Jepsen‘s I Really Like You with Nine Inch Nails‘s Head Like a Hole to create the duet of your DREAMS! OMG. This mash-up is so flawless in its perfection that I could damn near cry at its beauty. Click the embed above to have a listen and see what you think. I have a feeling you’re gonna really, really, really, really like this as much as I love it.
