Madonna's record-breaking, earth-shattering MDNA tour finally comes home. The tour begins its North American leg tonight (8/28) in Philadelphia, and will wrap up in Miami on November 20th. The show has already traversed throughout Europe, where Madonna managed to whip up plenty of her trademark controversy. Hoping to preempt the media's impending faux-outrage to the content of her show, Madonna released the following statement via her website: My show Is a journey. The journey of a soul from darkness to light It is part cinematic musical theatre. Part spectacle and sometimes intimate Performance art. But above all its a journey... Continue reading

Lady Gaga goes balls out (metaphorically speaking) with her latest video "Alejandro." The flesh-filled video was beautifully shot and directed by longtime Madonna collaborator, Steven Klein. What the hell the whole thing means is up to Gaga's "little monsters" to figure out. Lady Gaga "Alejandro" Continue reading

Beyoncé loves herself a good alter-ego, and her latest is a doozy. B plays B.B. Homemaker, a dutiful 50's housewife whose man doesn't appreciate her. Needless to say B.B. is having none of it! She tearfully rips her man a new one over the phone and then proceeds to chain smoke and get sloshed on a dozen martinis. By the end of "Why Don't You Love Me" dinner is burned, and B.B. passes out on the floor. Fierce, indeed. Beyoncé "Why Don't You Love Me?" Continue reading

The creature that is Tyra Banks slid down the slippery slope to extinction recently after a run in with a wild dog. Tests indicated the dog had rabies, though it is unclear from the video who first gave rabies to whom. Ty Ty went bug-eyed crazy foaming at the mouth, while her handlers ran for the exits. At least one audience member was bitten by the former supermodel, while the rest of the audience screamed in horror. Just another day on the set of The Tyra Banks Show. "Raaaarrrrggghh! Ruff! Ruff!" Tyra Banks Rabid Tyra Continue reading

While Christina Aguilera has been promoting the sound of her new album, "Bionic" as "futuristic," the imagery from her new video "Not Myself Tonight" is clearly an homage to the past. The Hype Williams directed video contains elements of Madonna's "Express Yourself," "Human Nature," George Michael's "Freedom," and just to stay current, a dash of Lady Gaga's "Bad Romance." Aside from looking fabulous, X-Tina really didn't bring much to the table creatively for the video. This is especially disappointing considering that this is the lead video off her first album in four years. The video isn't terrible, it's just that... Continue reading

We watched the debut of American Idol on June 11, 2002 and were mesmerized. The show used the time-tested format of a talent contest within the fresh backdrop of a reality show. We got to know the contestants and their families, while the show's live format presented plenty of 'water cooler' moments. The judges added their own flavor, particularly Paula Abdul's loopy behavior and kooky remarks and Simon Cowell's razor sharp wit. All those ingredients combined to make a tasty treat and the television audience gobbled it up. But in its 9th season, the old girl is showing some wear... Continue reading

M.I.A. is no stranger to controversy, but her latest video "Born Free" certainly ups the ante. While the video contains both nudity and graphic violence, it's really the clip's timely subject matter that proves to be the most compelling reason to watch. M.I.A. "Born Free" Continue reading

Superstar songstress Whitney Houston may have named her world tour 'Nothing But Love' but it's not quite working out that way. In her first concert tour in over 10 years, the response has been mixed at best. The beginning of the Australian leg of the tour attracted scathing reviews from critics and fans alike. She managed to finish the tour and depart from Australia in one piece, but more disappointment was to follow in London. Poor performances led fans to leave the performance early, while those critics paid to be there put their rage to the page. While some suggest... Continue reading

Cher has purportedly let it slip that she plans to tour after her stint at The Colosseum in Caesars Palace is done. One might say Cher is shameless for announcing a new tour after spending 2 years on the road with her "Farewell Tour." Well, some divas just take longer to say goodbye, and for that we are grateful. Cher 'Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves' Continue reading

Glee hit a home run with its highly-anticapted all Madonna episode on Tuesday. 13.5 million viewers tuned in so they could hum along to the strains of "Borderline" and "Like A Prayer." The soundtrack for the episode titled, "The Power of Madonna," currently sits atop the iTunes album charts and is expected to debut at No. 1 next week on the Billboard 200.

24-year-old tenor Lin Yu Chun was discovered on Taiwan's version of American Idol, 'Super Star Avenue.' His ample frame, style of dress, bowl haircut and remarkable voice has engendered comparisons with Susan Boyle. While he was dismissed from the Super Star Avenue competition, viral videos of his performances have sparked over 12 million hits in just the past week. He has made the rounds on various American talk shows of late, in one case performing a duet with William Shatner on 'Total Eclipse of the Heart.' One for the time capsule. Lin Yu Chun "I Will Always Love You" Continue reading
