Best Celebrity Blogs! No, Perez Hilton Doesn’t Make the List.

I’m an avid blog reader. There are a few blogs I check on every day, but mostly I just click around from the different links they post and see what’s out there. Believe it or not there are a few really good blogs run and/or created by well-known celebrities. I love reading about celebrities and looking at gossip sites (no shame!) but it’s interesting to see a completely different, and more personal, side to them through their blogs.

In my opinion, these are a handful of the best blogs created/run by celebrities. (more…)

What’s Your Wardrobe’s Theme Song?

Grand Central StationHave you ever seen that episode of Family Guy where Peter wishes he had theme music that plays accordingly with his life situations? How cool would it be to have your own theme song that followed you throughout the day and changed with your mood and surroundings? It would take a lot of the guesswork out for the people around us. That’s what we do with our daily style in a way- we send a message out to the people around us what kind of mood we’re in. But with the amount of black I wear daily people would probably assume that I’m either perpetually depressed or that I don’t like to sort laundry.

Whenever I’m getting dressed and piling on gold accessories with one of my many moto jackets, I imagine some cross between Linkin Park and Shakira playing in the background (still keeping my fingers crossed that they’ll get together for a collaboration). For the rest of the day I have some dramatic mysterious beat following me while I people watch from behind my sunglasses. (more…)

Going to Coachella? Make Sure to Pack Your Best Attire – Here’s Why:

CoachellaEvery major music festival has a “type.” What we mean: you won’t see someone jumping up and down in a florescent tutu, fringe bikini top and plastic sunglasses at any other music festival than Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC)…and maybe Ultra. Coachella, however, falls on the other end of the festival spectrum. You can express your style in a more peaceful and laid back manner. If you’re into street style, boho-chic and flower crowns then keep on reading. (more…)

Glover discovered it from an online Wu-Tang Clan name generator. “There’s no difference between Donald Glover and Childish Gambino – they’re the same. I just want people to come at my music differently…” he says of the name. (more…)

After international touring,  his most recent album, Muchacho, received numerous amounts of praise from critics and fans. “Phosphorescent is a Brooklyn band that hasn’t forgotten its Southern pedigree, creating washy psychedelia with a foothold in country-rock,” states the New York Times.

Reactions to Last Night’s Oscar Awards!

After months of anticipation, the Oscars finally aired last night, hosted by Seth MacFarlane. The show altogether was a bit, um, odd and drawn out. Some of Seth’s jokes were funny and some a little offensive. Obviously, he took jabs at Hollywood as any host would do.

This year the Oscars celebrated music in the movies we love. It was the tenth anniversary of the film Chicago and Catherine Zeta-Jones lip-synced (not confirmed, but obvious) her performance of “All That Jazz”. Jennifer Hudson got a standing ovation from the crowd of A-listers after her beautiful and heartfelt performance from Dreamgirls. (more…)

A Recent Obsession – Icona Pop

Ever since I saw the Girls episode “Bad Friend” in which Hannah will do anything to get interesting material for her new freelance job, I was knew this song would be stuck in my head for a while. Take a listen below to “I Love It” by Icona Pop, a Swedish synthpop duo.

For those of you who watch Girls, you know exactly what scene I’m referring to, and if you don’t watch Girls, well, you should. Hannah and Elijah go crazy at a rave at nightclub Greenhouse where they end up dancing and screaming to the song “I Love It.” This song is just so much fun and I think it’s definitely going to make its mark.

Brittany McDonald’s “Notice Me” Sends a Powerful Message to All

Songwriter

Growing up in Orange County, Brittany McDonald knew she had a passion for music before she could even talk. Taking inspiration from Gwen Stefani’s confidence and stance on societal views of women, Brittany realized her true mission was to change the way people think through her songs.

Graduating from the University of Southern California with a degree in psychology, Brittany packed her bags and headed to Nashville, TN. Her first few songs gained a lot of attention from music industry big shots calling her music too opinionated and edgy to fit in with other country music produced by females. On that note, moving back to Southern California, Brittany poured her soul into her newest single Notice Me.

Notice Me grabbed the attention of Ariana Huffington, who personally gave Brittany her own blog on the Huffington Post. We sat down with Brittany to ask her questions as to what motivated her to write a song with such a powerful message, especially for the society we live in today. (more…)
