Brad Paisley Concert Review

In: Dan, Music

Two weeks ago on October 2nd, Country Music superstar Brad Paisley descended upon Rogers Arena in Vancouver and if you know me, you’ll know that there isn’t a country music concert in the GVRD that I don’t do everything in my power to get my hands on tickets. Having never seen Brad in concert before I knew this was a MUST, having listened to his music for the last decade (at least). Thankfully my colleague Christine had a connection and was able to hook me up with last minute tickets. Yes, I screamed like a four-year-old girl and couldn’t WAIT to bust out the plaid shirt and imaginary cowboy boots.

(Imaginary in the sense that I have been threatened several times by friends that if I ever roll out to the bar in cowboy boots they will drag me home and make me change. Believe me, I don’t get it either?!)

Darius Rucker was the opening act and the perfect start to a night filled with country music. His edgy style and rare form are definitely what sets him apart from the rest of the boys in Nashville. His roots as the original front man from Hootie and Blowfish don’t seem to be hurting him either. He played homage to three of the bands legendary hits, which was both surprising and a nice touch to hear them redone with a country backbeat and twang.

Sadly it’s a repeat episode of “Glee” tonight. Damn you MLB playoffs. To satisfy your “Glee” appetite, I have several pics and a performance from next week’s Halloween-themed show. The kids of McKinley High are paying homage to the classic movie, “The Rocky Horror Picture Show“. Ryan Murphy is brill-balls for taking on this iconic show. I have no doubt the episode will be another homerun.

A few years ago, I went to a midnight screening of this movie and absolutely loved the experience. The movie itself was a bit cheesy and campy, but it was all about the audience who dressed up as their favorite character and got on stage and performed alongside the screening.

Rihanna Gives “Who’s That Chick” A Goth Makeover

In: Donovan, Music

A month ago, Rihanna’s music video for “Who’s That Chickleaked online and spread like wildfire. No one knew what the song and vid were for. Turns out, the David Guetta collaboration was for a Doritos “Late Night” ad campaign. The second I heard it, it immediately propelled the track as one of my favorites from Rihanna.

For Rihanna’s two most recent videos, “Who’s That Chick” and “Only Girl“, she looked happy and effervescent which was a welcome change from her somber dreary images from her previous album. Well, if you prefer your RiRi darker and edgier, she released a new version of “Who’s That Chick”. The new “Night Version” showcases a darker and more goth look, reminiscent of her dreary “Rated R” phase.

Warning to all wannabe Taylor Swift suitors. Treat her right, or you WILL be the subject of a future song. Swift lyrically gave Joe Jonas a public bitch slap in a song from her “Fearless” album after doing her wrong, publicly apologized to Taylor Lautner in “Back To December” and immortalized Kanye West on a track referring to that infamous night.

Now the 20-year-old country singer, has taken aim at John Mayer. Somewhere out there, Jennifer Aniston and Jessica Simpson are giving each other high-fives. The song finally confirms rumors Mayer and Swift were involved in 2009 while collaborating on a track, “Half of My Heart”, on her last album. If for any second you think “Dear John” isn’t about Mr. Mayer, check out the following quote from Swift in an interview to Access Hollywood.

“They’re all made very clear,” she said. “Every single song is like a road map to what that relationship stood for, with little markers that maybe everyone won’t know, but there are things that were little nuances of the relationship, little hints. And every single song is like that. Everyone will know, so I don’t really have to send out e-mails on this one.”

For those who feel Swift shouldn’t be kissing and telling, I say BOOOO. First, it’s way more fun for the public to see celebs trash each other. Second, it’s about time John Mayer finally got a taste of his own medicine. The incredibly busy ladies man SLASH man whore, is notorious for airing his dirty laundry. He called Simpson his sexual napalm and told the entire world that Jennifer Love Hewitt’s body is a “Wonderland“.

Katie White and Jules de Martino, or as they’re better known, The Ting Tings are back. The Brit duo launched themselves in grand fashion in 2008 with their incredibly successful debut album, “We Started Nothing“. That album sold over two million copies and earned them a Grammy nomination for “Best New Artist“.

If you liked “That’s Not My Name“, “Shut Up and Let Me Go” or “Great DJ“, then you’ll love their new single, “Hands“. It’s pure electro-disco heaven. The Ting Tings not only wrote it, but produced it in their home made Berlin studio.

Glee Gone Wild In GQ!

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Patrick

Holy hormones, Batman! Glee’s Cory Monteith has costars Lea Michelle and Dianna Agron by their asses on the cover of November’s GQ Magazine (see the full cover later in the post). It doesn’t stop there, as the two actresses pose in some pretty racy poses with little clothing on, all while dressed as teenagers in a highschool setting. They seriously look like porn stars in these photos – especially Lea Michele, as it is a far cry from her goodie two shoe character, Rachel on the hit show.

Despite the sexy pictures, Cory Monteith says that creator Ryan Murphy’s “Law” so to speak is that there is no trailer sex on set. “There’s a beautiful chemistry to this show, and messing with that would be dangerous,” says Monteith. “It’s the high school experience I always wanted. I remember I’d come home from fifth, sixth grade, and I’d watch ‘Saved by the Bell’ and be like, ‘I hope my high school experience is like that.’ And it totally wasn’t. It sucked.”

Now, onto the racy photos…

Nelly Furtado’s Best Songs & Music Videos Ranked

In: Donovan, Music

To celebrate her first decade in music, the gorgeous Portuguese-Canadian is releasing her first greatest hits compilation. In her short career thus far, Nelly Furtado has amassed worldwide fame, won prestigious awards and sold millions of records. Considering her success, it’s pretty remarkable she’s stayed out of the tabloids and not been involved in any major scandals. Given the fact her female counterparts with equal or more success have been less than angelic, Nelly practically comes off as Mother Theresa. Nah, she’s just a good ‘ol Canadian girl doing her country proud.

The multi-platinum selling, Grammy-winning singer drops “The Best of Nelly Furtado” on November 16th and will be available in both standard and double-disc deluxe editions. It features all her hits and three brand new songs, including the recently released “Night Is Young“. Her fifth original album will be released in early 2011.

Furtado has only released four studio albums, and all have been very creatively different. “Whoa, Nelly!” (7 million units worldwide sold) introduced an earthy Lilith Fair artist, “Folklore” (3 million) then showcased her Portuguese roots. By the time “Loose” (10 million) came around, Furtado was revealing her sexy urban hip side. “Mi Plan“, her first album entirely in Spanish, showed off her bilingual skillz.

Take a quick trip down memory lane with me and see if you agree or disagree with my rankings. I have no doubt you will, as a couple of my choices are a bit random.

In this week’s episode of “The GAYs of Our Lives”, sorry I meant “The A-List: New York“… it was all about relationships. Rodiney and Reichen look like they have a one-way ticket to splitsville and surprisingly it’s not even Austin’s fault (at least for this week, it isn’t). Speaking of the devil, the Southern troublemaker dropped a grenade that had all the Manhattan gays talking. Derek, on the other hand, was enlisting professional assistance to get his groove back. Apparently it’s been a long eight months. So without further adieu, here’s what each homo was up to this week.


Even though it looked like Austin’s primary objective was to break up Reichen & Rodiney the past couple weeks, turns out it wasn’t. The little sh*tdisturber has been hiding a secret from the rest of the boys, and more importantly us. As it turns out, the hooker has a boyfriend, correction, a fiancee named Jake who’s from Jolly Ole England. The two have been together for two years and apparently in love.

I wasn’t the only one who’s spidey senses went off when I heard this little bit of info. Both Ryan and TJ worked out the math and figured out Austin must by lying about his claims of hooking up Reichen only nine months ago. Hmmm, something smells awfully Shady McShaderson. Irregardless (I know it’s not a real word) of the facts, Austin claims to be in love with the charming Jake. Damn his accent is sexy.
