Concert Announcements: Taylor Swift and Queen Latifah

Friday, October 9, 2009

Queen Latifah, star of the mid-'90s Fox show Living Single, a.k.a. the greatest sitcom ever, is coming to Fillmore Miami Beach on November 17. Unfortunately, she's not taking Synclaire, Maxine, Regina, and Overton with her to do live Living Single theater. No, instead she'll be banking on her musical talent to entertain the crowd during "The Persona Tour." Persona is Latifah's first album in six years, and it's getting mixed to positive reviews. Tickets are available now through Live Nation.

Taylor Swift, country music's hottest thing and my guiltiest of pleasures has announced a second leg of her "Fearless" Tour will be coming to South Florida. According to Live Nation, the 19-year-old sensation will be visiting Sunrise on March 7, so it only makes sense she'll be playing BankAtlantic. Tickets aren't yet on sale, but stay tuned to Crossfade or Ticketmaster for updates. And check out Taylor Swift's adorably cheesy award-winning video after the jump.

Taylor Swift Has A Computer-Generated Dream

The video for Taylor Swift’s coming-of-age-thanks-to-boys tale “Fifteen” is out, and its heavy reliance on computer-generated scene-setting gives it the overwhelming feeling of a bad dream in which you’re transported back to high school, and you have to deal with all the insecurity-borne crap that you thought you got past after graduation and therapy. (Uh, you guys have those sorts of dreams, too, right?) I sort of feel like the overwhelming literality of the video and cheesiness of its setting torpedo the plain-spokenness of the track a bit, but something tells me that the clip won’t stop the song’s aphorisms about youth and love from being quoted at length on many teengirl Facebook pages.

Emma Watson is making a serious bid for the much sought Milano award this year.

The Milano is given out each year to the television star that is regarded as most able to inspire masturbation in males of all ages. Past winners read like a who's who list of American masturbatory fantasies, with such names like Tracey "Carol Seaver" Gold or Shannon "Brenda Walsh" Doherty. And of course Alyssa "Samantha Micelli" Milano, whom the awards were named after.

Taylor Swift shows Chicago why she has a following

October 10, 2009

A lot can happen in a year. Last October, Taylor Swift was one of the acts that played near Soldier Field as part of the Chicago Country Music Festival. On Friday, she was headlining the first of two sold-out nights at the Allstate Arena.

During that 12-month span, Swift released her sophomore album, "Fearless," and saw her music cross over to the pop charts. She rode a wave of media attention that transformed her from country star to pop-culture phenomenon. Then last month, an awards show incident made Swift a household name.

Taylor Swift 'Confused By Dating'

Saturday, 10th October, 2009

Taylor Swift is still baffled by dating and reveals she has no rules when it comes to new romances.

"I think the reason I write about love so much is because I have no idea what is going on with love." Swift explains. "It's unpredictable and I haven't figured it out yet."

"Every love story is different and I like to approach every person I meet like they're a separate book, rather than a chapter in a whole book. I don't have one general theory for how to date a person."

Despite being able to perform to tens of thousands of fans at sold-out arenas, Taylor still gets shy around guys she has the hots for.

The Avril Lavigne Corollary

In commemoration of this reportorial approach, I would like to add the "Avril Lavigne" corollary to "opinions of the shape of the earth differ" journalism.

"Opinions of the shape of the earth differ" journalism was given its name by Paul Krugman in a 2000 op-ed about George W. Bush's alleged campaign trail falsehoods. "If a presidential candidate were to declare that the earth is flat, you would be sure to see a news analysis under the headline ''Shape of the Planet: Both Sides Have a Point.'' After all, the earth isn't perfectly spherical," Krugman wrote.

Avril Lavigne in News Notes

Avril Lavigne filed for divorce from her husband, Sum 41 frontman Deryck Jason Whibley Friday (October 9), in Los Angeles, California. The pair, who have been married for three years, have no children together. Lavigne cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the split…

The Sum 41 rocker was seen holding hands with a unnamed female, and reports soon suggested Avril had also found new love in the form of billionaire Justin Murdock. But Lavigne's rep tells GossipCop that the stories are "totally 100 per cent not true."

Avril Lavigne's ex caught with new love

A mere week after Avril Lavigne filed for divorce from Derek Whibley – the Sum 41 frontman was spotted in a heavy breathing session with new love interest Hanna Beth Merjos.

The two were caught on camera by openly kissing his in at Tattoo Mania in Hollywood on Monday night.

Paramore's Hayley Williams 'So Nervous' About Returning To Stage

After spending a week in near-total silence as a result of a nasty case of laryngitis, Hayley Williams was raring to get back onstage. The only problem was that she didn't know if her voice was up to the task.

So, on Saturday night, backstage at Chicago's House of Blues, the mood was understandably tense. Not only were Paramore resuming their oft-delayed Brand New Eyes tour, but there were serious questions about just what would happen the second Williams strode onstage and attempted to sing.

And, truth be told, even she didn't know what to expect.

Hayley Williams Goes Solo For Jennifer's Body Soundtrack

Whether you've heard about it or not this had people talking a bit. Fans have been wondering why when the soundtrack listing for Diablo Cody's cannibal-tastic film Jennifer's Body was released, Hayley Williams' name was listed, not Paramore. No, this was not a mistake or a sign that she'll be starting her own solo project she assures us, so don't worry.

Hayley Williams and the Charismatic Frontperson Problem

Thursday, Jul. 23 2009 @ 10:32AM

Jennifer's Body is a new movie that's got all kinds of stuff I can really get enough of: Megan Fox, vampires, high school. It's also got a hot-shit soundtrack full of hot-shit music that people over the age of, say, 17, might find irritating: Panic! at the Disco, Cobra Starship, etc. It's all so very 2009-sounding (except maybe Screeching Weasel and Hole), and there's even that Black Kids song.

Anyway, track 3 is apparently a solo number by Paramore singer Hayley Williams, called "Teenagers." As you may recall, when the group appeared in Spin last year, they were adamant about how they're a band, and not just a vehicle for their charismatic, flame-haired singer. (The article was called "Paramore Is a Band," after the slogan Williams wore emblazoned on a shirt to reinforce that point.)

Hayley Williams Wants Everyone To Know That Paramore Is Still A Band

Hayley Williams’ solo contribution to the soundtrack for Jennifer’s Body has led some outlets to engage in a bit of speculation over whether the Paramore singer would be embarking on a solo career anytime soon. But in a post to the band’s Livejournal, she’s pretty adamant over the fact that her solo track is a one-off, and that even though she admires her tourmate Gwen Stefani, she won’t be following in Stefani’s uncomfortably shod solo-career footsteps anytime soon:
