Adele has a new song out off her soon-to-be released album 25. The song is called “We Are Young.” Adele named her 2008 debut album 19, to reflect the age she was when she was writing it. Her 2011 album, 21, followed suit, title-wise. It was a monster hit: It topped the Billboard charts for […]

I like to catch Ringo Starr‘s show whenever he’s in town, so I got tickets for his October 31 concert at Kings Theatre in Brooklyn. I figured I’d dress the part of a Beatles fan in the “Mod girl” outfit I’d worn once before for Halloween. It wasn’t until last week that I realized I’d […]

I never got around to doing a post on the Foo Fighters concert I went to in July. I was lazy about putting a watermark across the important parts of all my photos before sharing them. I had to start putting my name on concert photos after I discovered a few of my old ones […]

Back in the day, when Madonna would play a series of New York City dates, I’d get tickets to one show and say, “I want to do it again!” as soon as the house lights went up. I finally figured out it was best to always get tickets to two shows, which is why I […]

I’m having a belated, band-related fashion trauma! Ten days ago, I saw Duran Duran for the first time since 1987. The band was at Terminal 5 in New York to support their new album, Paper Gods, and my designing friend Stacy Lomman and I were there in the second row. That day, I deeply regretted […]

MrB and I went to the Broadway production of hot-hot-hot musical Hamilton tonight. Despite the uniformly rave reviews for Lin-Manuel Miranda’s hip-hop interpretation of Ron Chernow’s 2005 biography of Alexander Hamilton, I was dreading the evening a little. I was originally supposed to see Hamilton on March 26, when it was downtown at the Public […]

Straight Outta Compton, the authorized biopic of the rap group N.W.A, was the unexpected hit movie of the summer. It tells the story of the five guys — Dr. Dre, Eazy-E, Ice Cube, MC Ren and DJ Yella — who shocked the country with songs like “Fuck tha Police.” Five guys. But wait! Look at […]

Sometimes, you look at a magazine cover and just think … That’s how a number of people reacted when they saw the September cover of the new Spanish Vogue, featuring Penelope Cruz. Seriously, the magazine didn’t do her justice. But I’ve been pondering the matter of the totally inexplicable magazine cover since last month when […]

I don’t know why this video from 2014 popped up in my Twitter timeline recently, but I’m glad it did.  We’ve got The Voice television talent show here — where judges initially face away from the would-be stars in order to focus on the voices — but other countries have The Voice Kids, for 8- […]
