The TV Guide
Last night, I met up with my friend Stacey at the Belasco Theater in DTLA to see the utterly amazing FKA twigs live in concert and let me tell you, she put on a breathtaking performance. I got to see twigs in concert last November and I was so utterly amazed by her show that I knew I had to see her in concert again. twigs is one of the featured performers at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival but, thankfully, she decided to play a Localchella show here in LA this week. OMG. She was so good. So damn good. More »

The cover is actually PRET·TY
Last week we learned that Carly Rae Jepsen titled her sophomore album E·MO·TION and today, thanks to Tower Records in Japan (sigh, remember Tower Records?) we get our first look at the cover art for CRJ‘s new album. As you can see below, Carly is really channeling the retro feel that she appears to be going for on this new album. It’s a pretty cover, worthy of Carly Rae Jepsen. Check it out below. More »
Prepare for the Xtina takeover
Yesterday we got to hear one of the songs that Christina Aguilera will sing when she makes her guest appearance on the ABC drama Nashville starting this week and today, we get to hear more of Xtina‘s singing on Nashville. Not content to sing only her own songs, Xtina also puts her spin on the theme song for Nashville titled The Real Thing. Click the embed above to hear the Xtina-ized version of the Nashville theme song and get ready for her to completely take over the show when she makes her first appearance this Wednesday night.
"Party til the break of dawn"
Last month, Snoop Dogg released the music video for his single Peaches N Cream, the first from his new Pharell-produced album Bush. Today we get to see the just-released music video for his second single So Many Pros. As you can see in the video embedded above, Snoop showcases the many sides of his personality in this new music video, with the emphasis on his flawless pimp game. The retro feel of the faux movie posters is a very nice touch. This second single is the epitome of that smooth ’70s sound, I can totally dig it. Check out the video for So Many Pros and let the Snoop wash all over you.
The remaining members of One Direction just released their first promo photo taken since Zayn Malik left the group a couple of weeks ago and, as you might imagine, the guys look pretty sad and miserable. It’s interesting that the decision was made to release a promo photo of 1D where everyone looks bummed or, at the very least, nonplussed rather than looking, Oh, I dunno, happy. There ain’t a smile to be seen which, I guess, is how pretty much all One Direction fans feel these days. Click below to see what the members of 1D look like officially sans Zayn these days. More »
Last week we saw footage from Christina Aguilera‘s upcoming guest stint on the ABC drama Nashville and today we get to see more footage of Xtina on the show. The clip embedded above is from a scene where Aguilera is performing a song in, what looks like, a honky tonk. As you may know, Xtina plays a Pop star character named Jade who is desperate to break into the world of Country music. I believe Pop star Jade will have pink hair and Country music star Jade will have black hear (as in the clip above). I’m really intrigued by this guest stint on Nashville so I’ll be tuning in even tho I don’t even watch the show. I like what I see and hear thus far, do you?
“Oh, shit. What the fuck just happened?”
Earlier today we saw video of Madonna sucking “hella face” with Drake during his headlining set at the Coachella Music and Arts Festival in Indio, CA last night and right now we get to see a bunch of photos of said kiss because, yeah, it deserves a second (and third) look. Madonna came out on stage to steal the spotlight for a bit during Drake‘s set and she really put one on him. After she nearly sucked his lungs out of his throat, she saunted off stage like a BOSS. It was Drake‘s reaction, tho, that really got people talking. He seems to have cringed after the kiss and very clearly wiped his mouth (apparently he didn’t like the taste of her lipgloss or whatever?) … haha. I know some people think he wasn’t into it but I think he was definitely into it. My guess is that Madonna managed to suck some youth out of Mr. Drake, enough to keep her going for a few more years so … it was a win/win situation for everyone. Whether the kiss was welcome or not, it’s the only thing about Coachella that everyone is talking about so … Madonna wins again.
Actually, he jumped into Swan Lake
Kanye West is currently in Armenia with his wife and daughter on a family holiday and last night decided he wanted to put on a free concert in the streets of Yerevan, Armenia. I dunno, maybe he was touched by the Holy Spirit, maybe he was just itchin’ to cause a scene … whatever the case was, Yeezus took to the streets to perform a full show for his Armenian fans. At one point, he jumped into Swan Lake so that more people could get a better view of his performance … it was madness. There were many cameras on hand to capture the moment … click below to watch video, see photos and watch — if you like — his entire Armenian street concert. More »

"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.
