Blerd Radio – American Idol Live And In Color

It’s been a fairly eventful first three episodes of the American Idol finals of season 11. Just three weeks in and we already have four eliminations and the season is just about to start heating up. Joining me this time, just like last time, is my homie from the hood, Tiffany, who you all can follow on Twitter at @TVProducerLady . Tiffany was live at Wednesday’s performance show so she has all the skinny on how it went down live. I […]

The Idiot Box: Guess Who Came To Visit Blue Ivy On “SNL?”?

Unfortunately, I missed the most recent episode of “SNL.” Maya Rudolph hosted, and it seems like she did a really good job. Anyway, the skit that made the most noise found Maya playing new mom Beyonce Knowles. She and Jay Pharoah (doing a note-perfect Jay-Z impression even though there’s no resemblance whatsoever) entertain a who’s who of celebrities into their home to meet Blue Ivy. Fred Armisen is great as Prince, and Kristen Wiig does Taylor Swift’s surprise face to […]

The Singles Bar: Jay-Z’s “Glory”

The biggest celebrity news this week was unquestionably the birth of Ivy Blue Carter, the child of rap legend Jay-Z and his larger-than-life pop star wife, Beyonce Knowles. What I bet you weren’t expecting was for young Blue Ivy to potentially become the youngest artist to ever appear on a Billboard chart! In honor of his first child’s birth, Jay has released “Glory.” It’s a touching (if obviously rush-recorded) tribute that features his newborn’s coos in the song’s mix. Also […]

The Popblerd Chart Report 1/6/12: Wrapping Up 2011 With A...Smile?

The Popblerd Chart Report 1/6/12: Wrapping Up 2011 With A…Smile?

So, I’m sure you’ve all seen various news articles saying things about the state of the music industry in the previous year. Here are a few irrefutable facts as well as a listing of the top selling albums of the year. Music sales are up vs. the previous year for the first time in seven years. Despite a so-so fourth quarter, sales of prerecorded full-length albums were up 1% over 2010. Does this mean the CD is on the rebound? […]

bLISTerd Presents: Brittany’s Top 11 Albums of 2011

Okay, I’ll admit it- I didn’t listen to a lot of music released this year. I can’t really explain why- I think partially it was because I was listening to some of the albums released last year still (because Sufjan Stevens’ Age of Adz is still my favorite from 2010), and the other reason is probably because I tend to procrastinate when it comes to buying/listening to new albums anyway. For example: Bon Iver’s self-titled release (which is on the […]

bLISTerd Presents: Drew’s Top 11 Albums of 2011

As we reach the inevitable list-making portion of the year, all of the usual concerns arise: how to order? What was the one album of the year that stands head and shoulders above the rest? Will LMFAO come back next year, and if so, is there any way to stop that from happening? But me, I’ve got a special reason to celebrate: this year, my good buddy The Blerd roped me back into doing some more of that writing stuff […]

The Jukebox From Hell 07: “If I Were A Boy”

If you and I are friends – and if we’re not, we probably should be – you’re undoubtedly scratching your head right now, wondering why I’m about to lay into Beyonce. After all, I’ve been a vocal and unabashed fan of Lady B even before she went solo; I’ve got love for Miss Knowles (Mrs. Z?), and I don’t care who knows. She’s one of the finest pop stars of our time, a classy performer with an ear for a […]
