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

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 Kathleen Nguyen thought she’d do Tay a solid by posting a video of…

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

I remember watching and rooting for Kelly Clarkson when she was on Season 1 of “American Idol,” and to this day, I can’t get enough of her voice. I honestly feel like she’s one of the most underrated singers in the biz, so when she does gets credit where credit is due, I’m a happy…

“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.

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

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.
