The 2016 Grammy Awards rundown

You knew a rundown was coming so if you didn’t watch the Grammys, stop right here. Taylor opened the show and sang “Out of the Woods,” my fave song from her album 1989 and she did it well. I’ll let that horrible “Can I speak to the manager?” haircut slide. Sam Hunt is a handsome […]

The 2015 MMVA winners announced from backstage

It’s happening! The 2015 MuchMusic Video Awards just exploded at MUCH headquarters in downtown Toronto and I’m sitting right in the middle of this wild block party. Some mighty bright stars have descended on the city. There’s co-host and global phenom Ed Sheeran, R&B/pop sensation Jason Derulo, a grownup and studly Nick Jonas, glam-rockstar Adam Lambert, […]

No Summertime Sadness: Lana Del Rey’s Endless Summer Tour Review

I’ve been a Lana Del Rey fan since she gained underground buzz with her video clip for her hit song, “Video Games.” She hadn’t yet released her debut album, Born To Die, and the internet was going wild for her vintage aesthetic that set her apart from the pop queens who were on the scene. […]

Superstars Ed Sheeran, Nick Jonas, Jason Derulo, The Weeknd and Shawn Mendes were just revealed as performers, and the 2015 nominees have also been unveiled. The Weeknd leads the pack with 6 nominations including Video of […]

The summer of sequels: Movie preview

It’s the summer of sequels and Avengers: Age of Ultron kicked it off with a mighty $372 million at the box office since its May Day opening weekend. With a plethora of follow-ups, you might feel like your sensing a bit of déjà vu, but rest assured that a lot of these movies are aiming […]

A look into Madonna’s Rebel Heart

After a stumble at the Brit Awards, her Madgestry is back on her feet with the release of Rebel Heart, an epic opus of dance beats and introspective ballads. You can purchase the album as a standard release (14 tracks), a deluxe edition (19 tracks) or as a super deluxe edition (25 tracks). Madonna originally […]

American Music Awards Run Through: DVR Style

Taylor Swift continues to prove she can’t sing live, but nice try. Love the song and the sets were cool, but you try way too hard, Tay. Eyeroll. I love “Boom Clap,” but Charlie XCX is doing her best Gwen Stefani impression. Magic! looks as bored by their song as I am when I hear […]

Scream

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and what better way to celebrate the Halloween season than to discuss some great scary movies like one of my favorite horror series: Scream. Masters of suspense Kevin Williamson (I Know What You Did Last Summer, The Vampire Diaries, The Following) and Wes Craven (A Nightmare on […]

Gotham

As a big fan of the Batman franchise, I’d been anticipating the television premiere of Gotham for months now. I’m glad to say the show doesn’t disappoint. Gotham is an interesting entry into the Batman canon since it actually doesn’t feature Batman. Like Smallville before it, Gotham will be a show about how a hero […]

Justin Timberlake’s “TKO” video is a total knock out

Justin Timberlake takes a few hits and is out for the count in his sexy new “TKO” music video. The visual for JT’s latest single off The 20/20 Experience – 2 of 2 sees the star get hot and steamy with Elvis Presley’s granddaughter, Riley Keough. That is until she goes all femme fatale on his ass […]

FREE! Lana Del Rey “Young & Beautiful” EC Twins Remix!

I just interviewed the EC Twins, one of the hottest, fresh acts in the world of electronic music. These Manchester boys are working up to becoming the next big thing. You watch. After remixing for the likes of Adele, Dirty Vegas, LMFAO and Enrique Iglesias, the British duo put their spin on Lana Del Rey’s […]

“Blurred Lines” gender swap!

Mod Carousel, this boylesque troupe from Seattle, played spin-the-table on Robin Thicke’s video for his addictive single, “Blurred Lines,” and came up with this parody. They got me laughing. Check it! 

I want to take your questions to the 2013 MMVAs

It’s official, I’m heading to the 2013 MuchMusic Video Awards, and I want to take some of your questions with me. So, if you’ve got anything on your inquiring minds that you’re dying to direct at some of Canada’s elite like Avril Lavigne and Serena Ryder or superstars like Armin van Buuren, Demi Lovato and Taylor Swift, drop […]

The Following’s season end is near!

Only four episodes of The Following left, people! I don’t know about you, but I’m not ready to let go.  I’m not complaining though. I’m thankful for these 15 full episodes of Kevin Bacon and I have knuckle pains to show for it. Every week since the series debuted on January 21, I’ve crossed my fingers tight […]
