Tegan & Sara Debut ‘Boyfriend’ Music Video

Tegan and Sara recently kicked off their new era by debuting two new singles off their forthcoming album, Love You To Death, due out June 3. Both “U-Turn” and “Boyfriend” tracks are fantastic, but I much prefer the latter. The 80s-tinged synth-pop anthem by producer Greg Kurstin has potential smash written all over it.

For the accompanying video, the Quin sisters enlisted actress Clea Duvall to direct. It’s a fairly simple visual featuring the Canadian duo singing in front of different colored backdrops while a frazzled fictional director played by Rachel Antonoff attempts to film them. The clip also features cameos from Parenthood alums Sarah Ramos and Mae Whitman. Check out the clip below.

As much as I love an Adam Lambert ballad, I much prefer him when his vocals soar over a banging club beat. Naturally, his collaboration with Felix Jaehn and Steve Aoki immediately received heavy rotation on my playlist. Love the track. The trio just released the accompanying visual and it’s interesting to say the least.

While I expected a summery tone for the music video, having a chimp as the leading man was unexpected. It would’ve been a nice treat for Glamberts if Adam appeared in the clip, but I guess she was bussay 😉

If you’ve ever wondered what a day in the life of a playboy chimpanzee looked like, check out the “Can’t Go Home” clip below.

Nick Jonas and Demi Lovato are two of the proudest LGBT allies of their generation. The “Confident” singer recently received a GLAAD award for all her work while the “Close” stud flaunts his sexy body constantly for our viewing pleasure. I kid 😉 Jonas, also is very vocal for his support for our community. The two are putting their money where their mouth is.

Jonas and Lovato kick off their joint Future Now Tour in June which includes a couple of dates in North Carolina. The two have decided to cancel their dates in the Tar Heel state due to its discriminatory HB2 Bill which prohibits transgender people from using public restrooms that don’t match their assigned birth sex.

The pop singers are just the latest to boycott the state. They join Bruce Springsteen, Pearl Jam, Foo Fighters and Ringo Starr to name a few. Read Lovato’s full statement below via Instagram.

For its 2016 live musical event, NBC selected Hairspray. Wise choice if you ask me. Love the stage production and feature film musical. The peacock network has announced its first two cast members.

Fresh off her Broadway debut in The Color Purple, Jennifer Hudson heads over to Baltimore to play Motormouth Maybelle. Queen Latifah memorably played the character in the 2007 film. Inspired casting if you ask me. J-Hud is going to absolutely slay it. Find out which Broadway legend is also joining the project.

Not surprisingly in the wake of his tragic death, Prince has risen to the top of the Billboard 200. But exactly how much he dominated the chart is impressive.

The late 57-year-old legend takes both the No. 1 and No. 2 slots with his greatest hits set The Very Best of Prince and the Purple Rain soundtrack respectively. With regards to the former, it moved 179,000 equivalent units (100,000 of which was in traditional album sales). Meanwhile, the latter shifted 69,000 units with 63,000 of those in pure album sales.

Beyonce’s Lemonade Available On iTunes

After her highly-anticipated HBO special premiered, LEMONADE, immediately became available for streaming and sale exclusively on TIDAL. As much as I love Beyonce, I didn’t cave in and sign up for a free 30-day trial. Wise move on my part. Just 24 hours later, Bey’s 6th studio album appeared on iTunes and unlike her previous album initially, tracks were available to purchase individually. With regards to streaming though, it appears LEMONADE will stream “exclusively in perpetuity” over at TIDAL.

Did you watch LEMONADE on HBO this past weekend? I did and even had a few people over to catch it. While I enjoyed her ambitious feminist feature film with beautifully-shot images of Afro-American Southern imagery, voodoo visuals and futuristic moments, I was a little underwhelmed by the music. IMHO, there wasn’t a single track that screamed instant radio hit. With that being said “Hold Up, “”6 Inch” feature The Weeknd, “Daddy Lessons” and “Sorry” I instantly liked.

Purple Rain Re-Release

AMC Theaters announced it will bring Purple Rain back to theaters for a limited time. The 1984 musical will screen at 87 of their locations in the United States from April 23-28. It’s not playing near me but I plan on reliving the revolution on DVD this Sunday.
