    Dear Katy Perry: An Open Letter to a Pop Star

    Dear Katy Perry, You look tired. The vivacious pop star that once graced the top of the charts with pop masterpieces that made boys dream about “California Girls” and girls relive their “Last Friday Night” is seemingly distant. And that’s okay. We’re not mad, we’re just worried. What started as a low-key feud with Taylor Swift, turned into a full-blown war. A war you’re not winning. You performed at the Super Bowl Halftime Show in 2015; a moment that should have defined you, at the top of your game. The colorful performance though was second fiddle to the “left shark controversy” regarding Swift’s male dancer. That’s what people remember. Then…

    Taylor Swift’s Reputation: Here’s What We Know

    If the internet is a source of truth, we know two things: that cough you feel coming on is definitely a life-threatening illness and Taylor Swift is making her return to music tonight. For weeks, the inter-webs have been a buzz with news that Taylor Swift was preparing the follow up to her mega successful album 1989, released in 2014. Per usual for the country-turned-pop starlet, Swift has been tight lipped about the return. Many claimed the singer was preparing a massive overhaul to her image and sound, which the singer fueled when she stripped all her social accounts and website last Friday. This week, the singer began sharing videos to her social accounts…

    Sunday Funday Playlist: Catching “Feels”

    When Sunday morning rolls around, there’s usually only one thing that gets me out of bed. Brunch! And if you’re anything like me, you need the perfect brunch atmosphere to kick off your last day of the weekend. Typically a patio (weather dependent), a refreshing morning cocktail and the right music to fit the mood. Luckily, I have you covered on that last one. I have compiled a Sunday Funday playlist that will be the perfect companion as you sip mimosas, chat about the weekend’s gossip and pretend Monday isn’t right around the corner. No Sunday Funday would be complete without cameos from your favorite pop divas and pounding dance floor…

    Top 10 Songs of 2017 (…So Far)

    Hey all! I am back and I apologize that you haven’t heard much from me this year. Why? Because I am busy as hell: planning a wedding (more to come on that), working for one of the fastest-growing brands, and getting settled into my new home — with my new puppy. Yep, I’m pretty much a domesticated diva these days, spending my downtime watching one bitchy Housewives franchise after another. And honestly, I needed a break to refresh my mind and reset my priorities. But, break over. To kickstart my return, because music is where I started, I’m sharing my picks for the Top 10 songs of the year… so far.…

    2015 Grammy Recap

    It’s the Super Bowl of the music industry. Music’s biggest night. Cassadee and I gathered at her new Nashville condo downtown in our version of red carpet looks — a step above onesie pajamas — to watch the biggest names in music take the red carpet, perform their hits and accept their prizes at the 2015 Grammy Awards. We laughed, we cried, we ate pizza. Wait, scratch the first two: we mostly just ate pizza. And now that I’ve recovered from my pizza-induced coma of Grammy reflection, I’m ready to break it all down in my annual Grammy recap for those of you who may have missed the big show. The Carpet…
