“Arichella” or Not? Ariana Grande Attempts to Leave her Mark on the 2019 Coachella Festival with Ambitious Set

Ariana Grande Coachella 2When getting ready to headline Coachella last night, Ariana Grande prepared to try to make her set the most memorable of this year’s festival. Just a night after some argued that Billie Eilish’s iconic performance may have made this year’s event into “Billiechella,” Ariana’s big voice, elaborate main-stage floor show and list of well-known guest performers attempted to take back the buzz and stamp the event as her own.

So did Ariana succeed in making Coachella 2019 into “Arichella,” as many Arianators argued on social media (even when they had not seen her performance)? Well, maybe. But issues during Ariana’s set made many feel that the total experience wasn’t everything that it could have been.

Only the fourth woman ever to headline Coachella, Ariana performed Continue Reading →

Twerking, Draq Queens and Funerals: Iggy Azalea Looks for a Comeback with Video for “Sally Walker”

Iggy Azalea Sally WalkerIggy Azalea just dropped her new single “Sally Walker” with a very cinematic video. The video — shot as well as any movie short — centers on the death and funeral of the title’s “little Sally Walker,” and it is loaded with twerking, dancers in stripper gear, drag queens and choreographed step-dancing.

It honestly looks and sounds like the first musical offering that Iggy has actually cared about in years. But we would not be shocked if, after hearing the track and seeing the video, some might still say Continue Reading →

After 24 Hours of Big Highs and Lows, Cardi B Deactivates Her Instagram Account

Cardi B GrammysCardi B’s life — never drama-free — was a particular rollercoaster ride over the last day since her big night at the Grammy’s on Sunday. From becoming the first solo woman to win a Grammy for Best Rap Album to meeting her childhood idol Lady Gaga, Cardi B should have had an amazing time. And confirming that she was also back together with her previously estranged husband Offset should have just been icing on the cake.

But there were a number of distracting and detracting moments that were apparently so bitter for Cardi that she finally decided that she had to pull the plug and deactivate her Instagram account after a expletive-filled Continue Reading →

Pete Davidson Supports Kanye West, Then Deletes Instagram Account as Ariana Grande Rushes to His Apartment

Pete Davidson Kanye WestKanye West got support from an unexpected place today, as Ariana Grande’s ex Pete Davidson posted a message to his Instagram account following Kanye’s explanation why Ariana’s tweet a couple days ago promoting her new single “Imagine” by making light of his beef with Drake bothered him. “Bravo Kanye West,” Pete posted “for standing up for yourself and speaking out against mental health.”

Pete went on to explain how “difficult and scary” it is to be honest about mental health issues, especially in an environment where others still mock people who do. Unfortunately, after his post, Pete got a huge amount of social media hate directed at him for joking about Kanye and mental health, himself, in the past. Others, particularly Ariana fans, blasted Pete for not supporting his ex.

Pete then left an incredibly dark message on his IG account … before deleting the account entirely. “[I] really don’t want to be on this earth anymore,” Pete wrote, “i’m Continue Reading →

Zayn Posts Another Bollywood Cover “Allah Duhai Hai”

Zayn BollywoodZayn pleasantly surprised many of his Asian fans — and confused many of his Western fans — by uploading the cover of the song ‘Allah Duhai Hai’ on social media today. The song comes from a Bollywood movie called Race 3 which stars leading man Salman Khan; Zayn is apparently a big Salman Khan fan, or at least it seems so from previous tweets and even another cover that Zayn released in the past.

If you give it a listen, you will find that Zayn’s “Allah Duhai Hai” is a fully produced song, not something he sang in the shower. In fact, the former One Direction member added an entirely new EDM backdrop to the song, along with some dramatic vocals to create a rendition that could easily be taken for a club banger … at least in Mumbai or New Delhi.

The thing is — and we almost hate to say it — Zayn’s Bollywood cover honestly sounds better than any of his last handful of officially-released singles. It feels Continue Reading →

Zayn Nicki Minaj 2Zayn continues to surprise everyone with how he is handling his musical release strategy. Without much warning, today, he dropped a new single that is a collaboration with Nicki Minaj called “No Candle No Light.”

While the release date might have been a bit of a surprise, the fact that Zayn had a collaboration in the works with Nicki has been rumored for a long time. In fact, some believed that a tweet from Zayn not long ago to Cardi B about wanting to work together might have been a joking way of needling or at least trolling Nicki into Continue Reading →
