In June of 2012 we saw video of Britney Spears‘s younger sister Jamie Lynn Spears performing a new song that she had recorded now that she is living in Nashville, TN. At the time, we heard that Jamie Lynn was testing out her new music at tiny shows around Nashville as she worked on putting together a full album of songs. Last night, seemingly out of the blue, JL released a new single titled How Could I Want More for our listening pleasure. This is Jamie Lynn‘s first official single ever as a solo artist and as you can hear below, it’s a very strong first effort. Even tho I am not a big fan of Country music, there are a few Country artists and songs that I enjoy and I can really appreciate Jamie Lynn‘s new single. Have a listen, judge for yourselves. More »
Miley Cyrus closed out the 2013 American Music Awards last night with a performance of her hugely successful ballad Wrecking Ball. As such, fans and critics were anxiously awaiting Miley‘s appearance on stage to cheer on/critique whatever performance she had cooked up for the event. Very smartly, Miley decided not to go for an over-the-top performance, choosing instead to deliver a rendition of the song that was fairly straightforward (even down to the 1000% completely fake attempt at crying near the end of the song). There was no twerking, Miley‘s tongue stayed in her mouth, all was good. The highlight of Miley‘s performance, tho, was the projection of a huge, extremely cute animated cat lip-syncing the lyrics along with her while she performed. Cats = the Internet … and Miley understands her target audience. Click the embed above to watch Miley (and her kitteh) perform Wrecking Ball at the AMAs last night and see what the influence of animated cat gifs on the Internets has brought to bear. Then click below to see a really supercute animated gif of Miley‘s cat looking so adorable that you will cry. More »
This was a very special week in pop culture, but a very difficult week for avid Kanye West fans the world over. I have continuously expressed my love for Kanye; I have hailed him a [musical] god and I nearly lost my mind when I found out that Bound 2 was going to be the next single off of my favorite album of the year Yeezus. I just knew the video was going to be all kinds of epic. I just didn’t know that it would be an epic fail. Luckily, you guys were there to walk me through it with some of the awesomest comments ever. So this week we’re having a special Kimye edition of the roundup. Click inside for more!
The 2013 American Music Awards is Ariana Grande‘s first AMAs appearance and she managed to, Oh I dunno, ONLY SLAY THE ENTIRE PLACE IN THE SPAN OF JUST A FEW MINUTES OF HER ANGELIC SINGING. In a sequined figure-hugging red dress very reminiscent of the sexy number that Jessica Rabbit wore in Who Framed Roger Rabbit?, Ariana blessed us with a live performance of her song Tattooed Heart and immediately made people weep with tears of joy all around the globe. I’m really taken with how much I love Ariana the more I hear her. Click below to watch Ariana perform Tattooed Heart on the AMAs tonight and TRY to keep from crying your eyeballs out. Be warned, the video below autoplays. More »
Lady Gaga made her grand arrival at the American Music Awards tonight in grand fashion. And, except for the fact that she was riding a fake horse made of human beings, her arrival was not only understated but her look was simple, classy … and beautiful. Gaga is the new celebrity spokesmodel for the new Versace ad campaign so it makes sense that she’s channeling Donatella Versace with her red carpet look. Click below to see video of Gaga on her high horse making her AMAs red carpet arrival. I have to say, I like the Lady when she goes understated and classy. Be warned, the video below autoplays.

Yesterday Miley Cyrus celebrated her 21st birthday yesterday on MTV to be followed by a rager at her home. BUT, it turns out that she was having a pretty crappy day the afternoon before. Miley‘s home was reportedly burglarized Friday afternoon while she was NOT home. Apparently many of Miley‘s personal items were taken and while no one was harmed or injured in the incident, the violation of something entering her home and stealing from her was clearly very upsetting. I’m certain that Miley‘s birthday celebration went off without a hitch but still … I’m sure she’s still pretty shaken up from getting Bling Ringed. More »

Yesterday was a really fun day spent in the company of really great friends. I met up with Darion, his mom Janai (who visited LA for a quick day trip) and our newlywedded friends Loy and Ryan for a brunch hangout session at Cecconi’s in West Hollywood. After we were sated and all caught up, I made my way to Pasadena to spend a bit more time with Emma, Josh and his mom Catherine who is also visiting LA for a short time. We had so much fun Friday night that I wanted to see Emma, Josh and Catherine one more time before she flies back home to St. Louis. After that, I made my way out to Echo Park to help celebrate my friend Genevieve’s birthday at a place called Little Joy. All fun, all day with all my favorite people! More »
