Oprah interviewed Lindsay Lohan last night

Oprah Winfrey and Lindsay Lohan

The moment finally arrived last night, as Oprah Winfrey's interview with Lindsay Lohan made its debut on OWN and everyone finally got to see the grilling. Except for the most part, it was pretty amicable, and while Oprah didn't pull any punches, she was pretty tactful about the whole thing. For her part, Lindsay seemed pretty stable and sounded like she was actually serious about staying sober, although apparently she's still pretty tight-lipped MORE

Exclusive: Marina and the Diamonds chats w/ PopBytes

Marina and the Diamonds

This past weekend I had the chance to sit down with Welsh singer/songwriter Marina and the Diamonds right before her much buzzed about show at Los Angeles' Shrine Expo Hall.

Three short years ago Marina played the Troubadour with a couple of hundred fans, Saturday night MORE
