Quick question: why am I not at Lollapalooza right now? All sorts of madness is going down– mainly in the way of Frank Ocean covering Sade‘s 2002 smash ballad By Your Side during his set– and I’m not there?! A travesty, to say the least. Well, this is why the gods invented YouTube. Someone was kind enough to record the performance for us, and they did a really good job… except for the part where they didn’t get the entire thing, but two minutes is quite enough. In fact, it’s probably too much. I don’t need Frank Ocean tryna break up my happy home with all his croon-age. And boy, can he croon. *Commence swooning* And running back to YouTube to find the original version. And then back to listening to Frank‘s Channel Orange. And then back to swooning. Rinse. Repeat. In fact, I’m just gonna put that Sade video inside for you. Thank me later ;)
Kelly Clarkson continues to perform AMAZING renditions of some of her favorite songs as she tours the US and this past weekend in Phoenix, AZ was no exception. As you may recall, we’ve previously heard Kelly cover Britney Spears (twice — HERE and HERE) and Madonna (HERE) but this weekend, she set her sights on No Doubt. Watch the video above to hear Kelly‘s rendition of Don’t Speak. She kills it, y’all. KILLS. IT.
Okay. Y’all are gonna have to help me out with this one. I know very little about the Palin family drama/saga. I do know the basics, and I remembering hearing about Levi Johnston‘s forthcoming bundle of Beretta when Trent reported the story a little while back. But other than that, I’m still kinda lost in terms of the historical significance of today’s news, lol. I understand that Levi Johnston, father of Tripp Palin and ex-fiance of Bristol Palin has told TMZ that he’s none too pleased with the goings-on of the new reality show Life’s A Tripp. I haven’t seen the show (not sure that I’m missing out terribly) but I’ve just seen this clip that’s been making it’s way around the interweb for a couple of weeks and it pretty much looks like MTV‘s Teen Mom only… worse? Is that even possible? Check out the clip, and get deets about Levi‘s attempts to get full custody of a little boy who’s fond of the f-word. And the h-word.
Last week we heard some new music from Mariah Carey and a lot of ya’ll had mixed feelings. I, for one, found the original Triumphant track to be a bit of a disappointment, since we didn’t get to hear very much from the diva herself. And on top of that, Mariah is the undisputed (in my mind, lol) queen of the hip-hop collab! She’s produced much better songs than what came of her link-up with Rick Ross and Meek Mill (though I heart those two like cray), and I’ve got the proof inside. And… on a personal note… I can’t even front. Making this list was the most fun I’ve had since last week when I started working on PITNB‘s Best Videos Of The 90s list (forthcoming!!!). I really, really hope it’s as fun for you guys to experience it. Like… OMG. How could I have forgotten about the H.A.T.E.U. Remix??? And how did I not know that there was a remix to The Roof??? Featuring…. Mobb Deep?! That’s it. That was it! If I was ever for 22 seconds, not in love with Mariah Carey, that’s all changed now. She is the queen of all things; she has literally collaborated with every rapper that I would collab with if I had a killer five-octave range. Now if we can just get her in the studio with A$AP Rocky and/or Andre 3000 my life will be semi-complete. All hail the woman who makes Gucci Mane sound good. Gucci! The ill countdown is popping off inside!
Early yesterday morning, I boarded a train from Hartford, CT bound for NYC, NY all by my lonesome as I’m spending a few days here in the city. David had to fly back to LA to get back to his empire so I hit the rails for the Big Apple. I have planned for each of my days here something really fun … but I didn’t know what time I would be getting into NYC so I wasn’t sure which plans to make. Because I got here early and managed to get work done in time, I was able to see a matinee performance of Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark. This was the second time I saw the show and I have to tell you, I enjoyed it A LOT more this second time. More »

Heidi Klum can wear anything … from the simplest casual outfits, to the most glamorous red carpet gowns … to absolutely no clothing at all. Which is why it should come as no surprise that Heidi can also rock a viking outfit like nobody can. Heidi was on hand for a special performance of the new show How To Train Your Dragon Live Spectacular at the Nassau Coliseum in Long Island, NY and she got all appropriately dolled up for the occasion. Check out photos of Heidi and her new dragon friend below. More »
