Lady Gaga: Ready to check you in … AHS: Hotel

Lady Gaga / American Horror Story: Hotel

Normally, the theme, cast and all general details for the next installment of FX's American Horror Story are kept secret until late summer, so as to churn the fanbase into a frothy hotbed of speculation. Except this year they've decided to announce some (stunt) casting early, such as the fact that the fifth time around the title is Hotel and that Lady Gaga will be starring in it. You may now commence all your many wild thoughts, educated guesses MORE

Rachel Lynn goes acoustic with “Tend to the Flame”

Rachel Lynn

Generally speaking I'm not a singer / songwriter person--I only wanted to go to Lilith Fair that one year Missy Elliott played the main stage. If Solange isn't going to cover it, I'm probably not interested. But I can get beyond this one: Rachel Lynn. Anyone who starts a song with, "a little whiskey and a love song" probably has a Pinterest board with Patsy Cline portraits. She probably likes sparse interiors and metal jewelry and sings in an MORE

Sophie and The Bom Boms bring the “Power”

Sophie and the Bom Boms

On Monday (MOANday) morning everyone use a little power (especially after watching what might have been the most boring Oscar telecast ever)–and that's literally what I have for you in audio format–"Power"–the hot new single from Sophie and The Bom Boms (produced by David Elevator). The band is headed up by LA native singer / songwriter Sophie Stern–who did some writing in the past for acts like Britney Spears (!) and Conor Maynard plus MORE

Roast of Justin Bieber

Justin Bieber

If you've ever read an interview about Kate McKinnon on how she creates her characters, you've probably heard her summation of Justin Bieber: A puppy who just piddled on the carpet and is kind of sorry about it. Keep that in mind as you watch the teaser for Comedy Central's Roast of Justin Bieber (March 30), since the overall vibe is that he's sort of sorry and this is an easy out for his bad behavior. If he's really sorry, he'll ditch the MORE

Beware: Ariana Grande’s right side–brings the dark side!

Ariana Grande

Back when the news first broke that Ariana Grande purposely refused to show the right side of her face, I made a joke amongst friends (SHUT UP I HAVE FRIENDS!) that seeing the right side of Ariana's face would bring about the apocalypse. Well, here's the music video for her latest single, "One Last Time," in which we see the right side of her face and the world explodes. So clearly, this one is on me. I apologize. Turns out, the Mayans were onto MORE

Listen: Beyonce’s “Crazy In Love” remix for ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’

Beyonce

It's going to be hard for Fifty Shades of Grey to shake its Twilight comparisons: For starters, Fifty Shades start off as Twilight fanfiction (SERIOUSLY). Both movies are adaptations of terrible books that became inexplicably popular. Both feature abusive relationships that people just love to romanticize. And no matter how bad the movies are, at least the soundtracks are actually totally amazing. Case in point: Here's Beyoncé's "Crazy In Love" MORE

Madonna is Now “Living For Love” on Youtube!

Madonna "Living For Love"

All right, we're going to get to the Grammy Awards in a bit, I swear. It's just that Madonna released a new music video over the weekend for "Living For Love," the lead single from her upcoming album Rebel Heart (due out March 10th) so we have to get to that first. Especially since she finally released it onto Youtube after initially releasing it on Snapchat or Imgur or whatever it is the kids are using to send around naked pictures these days. MORE

MAJOR: Erica Glyn’s ‘Dollars For Thieves’ EP

Erica Glyn Dollar For Thieves EP

There's a lot of talk about the nineties revival going through our culture right now. It's here. It's big. Get used to it.​ We want to wear crop tops again, we want everything to sound hazy and drug-induced ... on and on–and on. Erica Glyn's new EP, Dollars For Thieves is such a perfect throwback to the women of rock, Portishead and Sneaker Pimps. This is what every 'dream of the 90s' montage needs as a soundtrack. With nostalgia this MORE

Giorgio Moroder + Kylie Minogue = “Right Here, Right Now”

Giorgio Moroder + Kylie Minogue = "Right Here, Right Now"

As much as I love to bandy about my indie cred ("Oh, you don't have Dum Dum Girls on your gym playlist? That's okay, a lot of people haven't heard "Bedroom Eyes" either. Hold on, I have to accept my trophy for Most Exhausting Person Ever")–I will forever and always be a total stan for Kylie Minogue. She's hands down one of the best pop singers out there. Hell, she's who Madonna wishes she had grown into. Anyway, here's "Right Here, Right Now," MORE

Album Review: Fifth Harmony drop Reflection; remain flawless!

Fifth Harmony Reflections

After releasing their Better Together EP in 2013, the girls of Fifth Harmony have officially arrived with the girl power-dropping full-length debut studio album, Reflection. I have been listening to this album for over two weeks–and now ready to publicly announce my deep obsession with these ladies. Each song is a possible hit, thanks to the incredible management of Simon Cowell and LA Reid as well as the all-star team of producers including MORE

RuPaul + Michelle Visage: Bringing that “New York City Beat”

RuPaul + Michelle Visage "New York City Beat"

Michelle Visage has been becoming increasingly more popular thanks to Celebrity Big Brother, and stands as the bitch to beat because you don't mess with the queen mother! Anyway, with Michelle a household name, RuPaul released the music video for their latest collaboration, "New York City Beat," off the Covergurlz 2 album–plus there's even a little commercial for a new RuPaul figurine! MORE

Reasons Why Katy Perry slayed the Super Bowl Halftime Show

Katy Perry

Unlike the lame halftime show from last year featuring Bruno Mars and Red Hot Chili Peppers ... Katy Perry rocked the hell out of yesterday afternoon's Super Bowl XLIX's, halftime show–dazzling the crowd with impeccable production and a bubblegum pop, tongue-in-cheek performance–there was truly something for everyone. Here are seven reasons why our favorite "California Gurl" deserves all the credit due ... EXCUSE ME BUT WAS THAT A TIGER? MORE

Charlie XCX + Rita Ora = “Doing It”

Charlie XCX + Rita Ora = "Doing It"

My favorite thing about the web -- other than bitchy fashion blogs and Drag Race .GIFs (oh and porn) is the fact that it really does function as a great equalizer when it comes to media. It used be that if you wanted to get played, you had to have a label behind you to do all your PR. Nowadays, Twitter and Tumblr are easily viable options willing to share lesser known artists who actually make great songs. Granted, you still need luck, but at MORE

All Tied Up: FKA Twigs’ “Pendulum”

FKA Twigs / "Pendulum"

A quick aside here: At my dayjob (Northbound Leather), there's a TV behind the cash register that runs footage from our past fashion shows. One of my favorite bits to watch comes from Bento, which features a rope bondage suspension that creates, as I put it, a human chandelier. Super cool stuff. Anyway, I bring this up because FKA Twigs' new music video for "Pendulum" features tons of amazing rope work, including some seriously impressive MORE
