Kelly Clarkson’s Gospel Cover Of “Shake It Off” Will Make You Swoon

Kelly Clarkson bestowed upon us humble plebs the most glorious and stirring "Shake It Off" cover to ever make its way through our speakers (not that I know of all too many "Shake It Off" covers to begin with, but you get my drift.) As Kelly's embarrassingly obsessive #1 superfan from roughly years 2002 -…

Weekend Shut-In Worksheet: See “This Is Where I Leave You,” Rock Out To Foxygen & Make Some Hybrid Desserts

Activities are wonderful, but sometimes, it’s fine to want to shut the world out for a couple of days, and make some serious time for you. Don’t be afraid of FOMO, either. There will always be another party, another pub crawl, another picnic. The time you’ll spend indulging in the things you want to do,…

This Beautiful Cover Of “Out Of The Woods” Will Hit You Right In The Gut

So here's what I think really happened when Taylor Swift released "Out Of The Woods" last week: some wild techno remix that she was saving for months down the line was accidentally released in the place of the original track, and this lovely singer…

Watch Kelly Clarkson Absolutely Slay Sam Smith’s “Stay With Me”

“Health Goth” Is A Thing; I Have Ideas For Other Subculture-Related Fitness Trends

Apparently “Health Goth” is something that I’ve kind of been doing without realizing it, because it basically consists of having a background in musical subcultures and wearing head-to-toe black when you work out. Cool beans! I hope I get a pass for the color of my shoes, though; I just wear whatever isn’t going…

Taylor Swift Covered Indie Hit “Riptide” And It’s Perfect

When it comes to Taylor, you either love or hate her. It’s easy to hate her– she reminds you how awful it felt when your not-boyfriend broke up with you, and you listened to Red on repeat for days at a time, while lying on your bedroom floor. It was a low point, and Taylor is an incessant…

No disrespect to my own parents or anything, but I'm still having trouble coping with the fact that I was not created by country music power couple Tim McGraw and Faith Hill. There are, however, three girls who were, and now I have one…

The trusty talents in Postmodern Jukebox have just released their latest cover -- a Motown rendition of Taylor Swift's "Shake It Off." Somehow, they managed to make the most energetic song in the world sound even happier (especially at the 3:10 mark)! I dig it. [Tastefully Offensive]…

Carrie Underwood Addresses Her Atheist Haters: “If You Don’t Like It, Change The Channel”

Just last week, Carrie Underwood released her new single "Something In The Water," but unlike most of her newly-released tunes, it wasn't exactly met with open arms. Carrie's song, which affirms her belief in God, conversion and baptism, focuses on the strength she found from…

If you're like me, still singing "A Whole New World" into your hairbrush while you twirl around your room like a seven-year-old, hold on to your magic carpets, because this is freakin' amazing.

Beyonce Crashed The Global Citizen Festival And It Was Perfection

Beyonce made a surprise appearance during Jay Z's set at the Global Citizen Festival in NYC this weekend, and it was glorious. She joined him to sing Justin Timberlake's vocals in "Holy Grail," and then added her voice to "Young Forever" (in a totally on-point outfit, I might add). You'd think that being fresh off the…

Gwen Stefani Sings “Hella Good” On “The Voice” With Awkward Backup From The Other Judges

Gwen Stefani sang "Hella Good" on "The Voice" last night, and while it definitely wasn't a full-on No Doubt reunion, Gwen totally rocked it. Instead of the rest of the band, Pharrell Williams, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton awkwardly stagebombed the whole thing. They don't exactly give off the right level of badassery to match…
