Lana Del Rey At The El Rey

Last night, after I flew in from Detroit, I met up with my homies Ollie and Josh at the El Rey Theatre to see Lana Del Rey in concert. As you may know, LDR played a 3 night residency at the El Rey here in LA and last night’s show was the finale. On Monday we got to see video of Lana performing a new song titled Body Electric and, unsurprisingly, she performed the same song last night. In fact, she performed the exact same setlist … and I understand mimicked her uncomfortable between song banter from all 3 nights. I was worried that seeing LDR‘s third show might be less interesting than seeing her first two shows but it sounds like all three shows were exactly the same. More »

Listen: Rihanna’s Songwriter Drops Her Own Track

Rihanna‘s secret weapon,” is what people are calling Ester Dean. This is fair, I guess. The Grammy-nominated artist has written an INSANE amount of hits for badgalRiRi: Rude Boy, What’s My Name, Where Have You Been, Talk That Talk, and a host of others. But to call her Rihanna’s secret weapon simply does not do this woman justice.

The Day Drake Gets To Meet The Vice President… Is The Day He’s Getting Punk’d

The resurrection of the trucker hat at the MTV Movie Awards was kind of a big deal, especially if you’ve been missing Ashton Kutcher on this new season of Punk’d. I’ve caught a few of the episodes– they punk’d my girl Chloë Grace Moretz, and they got Scott Disick and Shenae Grimes too. I never thought I’d say this but… um… I kinda missed Ashton Kutcher! They’ve got some celebs punking other celebs but (insert melodramatic sigh) it’s just not the same.

Sheryl Crow Records New Music In Spite Of A Brain Tumor

 

The talented and tenacious 50 year old singer has a benign brain tumor, and revealed her story in an interview with the Las Vegas Review-Journal. “I haven’t really talked about it,”  she said. “In November, I found out I have a brain tumor. But it’s benign, so I don’t have to worry about it. But it gives me a fit.” In spite of this major– but currently harmless– development, Sheryl Crow remains true to herself and in good spirits, which is fantastic to see.
