Peace the Spork Out, Glee
After 6 seasons, Glee came to an end on Friday night when the series finale episode aired on Fox and while I don’t really have much love lost for this show that lost my interest years ago, I think it’s worth saying goodbye to the once truly revolutionary TV show. I can’t even get into the all the crazy stuff that went down on the series finale ep (way too many time jumps, TBH) but I do want to share video of the final song performance … One Republic‘s I Lived. Click the embed above to watch the cast of Glee perform the swan-song that caps off their 6 season run. I also want to note that the finale episode did much to pay homage to the late Cory Monteith, who was memorialized one more time with the Glee performance of Journey‘s Don’t Stop Believin’ from the season premiere episode. Click below to watch the performance again, remember how amazing Glee used to be and try not to bawl your eyes out. More »
What am I looking at?
This is not the first time that Beyoncé has done something that completely baffled my mind. We all remember the severity of those bangs. And there have been plenty of interviews she’s given, which left me with a big ol’ question mark on my forehead. So I shouldn’t be surprised to find weird little Instagram videos from the Queen Bey… but I certainly am perplexed. Click inside for more!

Last night I traveled back to 1987 so see Dokken play a rock show at the Whisky A Go Go on the famed Sunset Strip and I had a pretty fun ass time. Any kid who grew up in the ’80s has fond memories of the hey day of hair metal and any self-respecting ’80s kid has to count themselves as a Dokken fan, no question. Dokken was already a big metal band for most of the decade but when they did the song Dream Warriors from A Nightmare on Elm Street 3 their popularity shot them into the stratosphere. I must admit, I kinda only went to the show last night to hear Dokken perform Dream Warriors at the Whisky but I was very pleasantly surprised by how well Don Dokken sounded and looked on that stage. He put on a helluva show last night. More »

"At the age of 22, I fell in love with my boss"
On Thursday, in Vancouver, British Columbia, Monica Lewinsky delivered a stirring TED Talk at the 2015 TED Conference on the subject of cyberbullying. Titled The Prince of Shame, Lewinsky used her own personal experience to discuss the evolution of cyberbullying in the 22 minute speech embedded below. Monica Lewinsky has been a pariah for most of her adult life due to her scandal with President Bill Clinton but in recent years, she has worked very hard to take back to strength and take back control of her own narrative. Clips from Monica‘s TED Talk have been making the rounds but TED has finally made her entire speech available for viewing. It’s a video that is worth your time, I think. Check it out below. More »
Yesterday we saw video of Jennifer Lopez performing her new song Feel The Light on this week’s episode of American Idol and today we get to see the just-released music video for the track. We first heard Feel The Light last month when it was released as a single from the original motion picture soundtrack of the Dreamworks animated feature Home and, to be honest, it’s not one of my fave J. Lo songs … but it’s not bad. This video, as you can see above, has a lot of fun with the space theme of the movie so give it a look, see what you think. You’ll note that the cool white dress she wore on Idol is also featured in this music video. Who says J. Lo never wears clothes more than once?
Get Ready for the Return of Luda
If you’re like the rest of the world, every commercial for Furious 7 has you completely, ridiculously psyched for the new movie. One of the best things, for me, about these films is watching Ludacris on the big screen. He always stood at as a rapper (Chicken-n-Beer was seriously the soundtrack to my senior year in high school), and he’s now an even bigger deal than I could have imagined back in the day. For this reason, I was really excited to learn that, along with the realese of Furious 7, we can anticipate a new album from Luda. The rapper/actor/newlywed recently opened up to Vibe Magazine about the new album Ludaversal, how he got the role of Tej Parker, working with Paul Walker’s brother’s Caleb and Cody Walker, and of course Vin Diesel‘s viral Drunk In Love karaoke video.

Kicking Ass Since 1995
Not only is Madonna‘s Vogue celebrating a milestone anniversary today but so, too, is the rock band Garbage who are celebrating the 20 year anniversary of their birth into the world. Altho Garbage was actually born months before March 20, 1995, it was on this day 20 years ago that the band released their debut single Vow … marking their official debut into the world. I vividly remember when Vow was released because the song sounded unlike anything I’ve ever heard before. The Vow music video, embedded above, heralded the arrival of an exciting new musical force to be reckoned with and I was immediately obsessed. Watch the 20 year old video above and then click below to read the message that Garbage shared with their fans today on their official Facebook profile in honor of this special 20 year anniversary.

Strike A Pose
1990 was a very big year for music particularly because on this day back in ’90, Madonna released her truly iconic single Vogue and changed the landscape of pop music. It’s kind of hard to believe but Vogue was originally recorded as a “throwaway” single for the 1990 soundtrack to the Dick Tracy movie but upon its release (and evermore) it became one of the greatest Madonna songs of all time. Vogue was released on March 20, 1990 and today — 25 years later — we celebrate it’s birth into the world. Click the embed above to watch the equally iconic music video for Vogue and then click below to watch Madonna‘s epic performance of Vogue at the 1990 MTV Video Music Awards … because, damn, it’s Vogue‘s birthday!

No, it's not Excalibur Anaconda or Butternut Summer Squash
Shortly after Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds welcomed the birth of their daughter a few months ago, word started going around that the happy parents named their child Violet. For some reason, that rumor really stuck to the point that Ryan had to publicly deny that he named his daughter Violet (not that there’s anything wrong with the name Violet, just that that isn’t his daughter’s name). With Ryan‘s denial came the seeming vow that neither he nor Blake would be revealing their daughter’s name to the public ever … even tho we did hear that the girl was giving an “unconventional” name. Ryely‘s refusal to reveal the baby’s name made it a thing that people kept asking about and today … at last … he FINALLY revealed the name he and Blake gave their newborn daughter. Click below to watch video of his interview on the Today show earlier this morning and find out AT LAST the name of the Lively-Reynolds child. More »
