Say My Name

I spent Labor Day weekend sweatily pressed shoulder-to-shoulder with 60,000 other people in Philadelphia at the Made in America Festival. I was there for Beyonce only. Everyone else was there for Deadmau5, Phoenix, and a slew of other bands that I care very little about. I had a goal: to see if Festival Beyonce is the same as Stadium Beyonce, and to figure out what, if any, cracks there are in her seamless exterior. (Also, I saw Haim, and learned to love the center part.) Here are some assorted thoughts and lessons learned from my trip to Made in America. Keep reading »

Watch The Made In America Livestream!

The universe has smiled upon me and given me not one, but two chances to see Beyonce, Queen of The World, Light of My Life this summer. When I had the opportunity to see her in Brooklyn with Amelia earlier this month, I took it. “That’s cool,” I thought. “A once in a lifetime opportunity to see Bey and find proof of whether or not she’s actually human!” Sometimes life works in mysterious little ways that I will never understand. In a remarkable turn of events, I’m headed to the Made In America festival, curated by none other than Mr. Beyonce himself, Jay Z, with Beyonce Giselle Knowles headlining tonight!

Starting at 2 p.m. today, you can check out the video above to view a livestream from the festival, featuring performances from what is basically my summer jams playlist: Beyonce, Haim, 2 Chainz, Solange, A$AP Rokcy, Kendrick Lamar, Phoenix, Emeli Sandé, and a whole slew of others. If I am not raptured a second time under the spell of Beyonce’s ever-changing hair and flawless everything, I’ll be tweeting over at @TheFrisky and posting pics of whatever strikes my fancy, including but not limited to festival fashion and Blue Ivy. Join me!

The 25 Best Photos From The “TRL” Photobooth

If you spent any time near a television in the late-’90s and early 2000s, then you are familiar with TRL. If this is the case, you are also surely familiar with the TRL photobooth, the last pit stop Britney, or Christina, or Da Brat would make before grabbing the mic and standing next to Carson Daly. I always assumed that the celebs in the photo booth were flashing the camera or making out, but what do I know? Thankfully, MTV has ALL the photos from this pop culture touchstone up on their site, so, before you take off for the long weekend, peruse our favorites from the photo booth, and check out the whole thing over at MTV.

I will just come out and say it, because this is a safe space — Adam Levine is my secret guilty pleasure and celebrity crush. The hair, the inscrutable tattoos, that reedy, breathy falsetto — he’s the dude that induces eye-rolling at the beginning of the night, but at last call, you’re taking him home. He is my LA-singer-songwriter-babe-I’m-in-a-band kryptonite, and that is why he is here to stay. Surely a man with all these character traits has a lot to say about love. Thankfully, he has left us with his one true gift to the world — the music of Maroon 5. Let’s take a deep dive into the lyrics of Maroon 5 and eke out the very valuable lessons in live and love that Adam has left for us, sprinkled like so many jewels over the years.  Come!
