With this year’s iHeartRadio Music Festival a little over a month away, I thought I would give a rundown on the artists that will be performing. The already sold-out festival is boasting an extensive line-up of who’s who in the music industry. Tickets went on sale on July 14th and sold out in eight minutes. Continue reading →
Finally the music video for one of my favorite songs off of Coldplay’s Mylo Xyloto album, “Princess of China”, was released over the weekend and it is stunning. Love the part where Rihanna and Chris Martin are on their knees facing each other.
“Where Have You Been” was directed by Dave Meyers with the video’s choreography Nadine “Hi-Hat” Ruffin.
The first official single off of the Scissor Sisters’ fourth studio album, Magic Hour, is now up on YouTube and it is astounding. “Only the Horses” was co-produced by Calvin Harris, who also produced Rihanna’s hit, “We Found Love”.
Before I go into my thoughts about last night’s Grammys, I wanted to make a major criticism to CBS and the Grammy Association itself. Those of us who are music and pop culture bloggers on the west coast had to wait three hours behind the east coast to see the telecast of the Grammys. It made it very difficult to tweet or blog about who was performing or who won what when the east coast knew three hours before we did. It’s not like it couldn’t be shown at the same time as the east coast. I have seen it done with other award shows. Now that I got that complaint off my chest on to the show itself:
Just announced this morning at 7:45 am PST, the Beach Boys will reunite on the Grammy stage and perform with pop/rock groups Foster the People and Maroon 5. This will be the first time that the Beach Boys have performed live together in over twenty years. Also scheduled to perform is The Civil Wars, Diana Krall, Joe Walsh, Nicki Minaj, and more.
One of the most anticipated performances is British band Coldplay and R & B superstar Rihanna, who will perform “Princess of China” from Coldplay’s new album Mylo Xyloto.
Glee returned this week with what is being heralded as the best episode yet. The episode appropriately titled “Yes/ No” gave us two proposals, another character who got married before this episode, and an interesting look into the inner thoughts of a well-loved character with the voice of Helen Mirren. Spoilers ahead after the jump. Continue reading →
