#SPOTTED: LENA DUNHAM IN TORONTO FOR “NOT THAT KIND OF GIRL”
It is no mystery how much I adore HBO Series GIRLS and after being down about missing Creator and Star Lena Dunham's Just for Laughs Festival appearance in September last month, fate would give me a second shot at meeting her. In Toronto promoting her new Book NOT THAT KIND OF GIRL, the 28-year-old Screenwriter, Director, Actress, Producer and now Author, had a busy day of Press which concluded with her speaking at the Toronto Reference Library's Bram & Bluma Appel Salon.

The stars shined bright tonight on the yellow carpet at Sony Centre for the Performing Arts as the 2014 Canada's Walk of Fame Tribute Show commenced on a chillier-than-average October day. The annual Fixture which originated in 1998 honouring individuals who have contributed greatly to the Canadian Cultural landscape, saw representatives from multiple disciplines recognized with an equally star-studded list of Presenters.

One of my favourite annual Fixtures in the City is The Delicious Food Show and now in its third year, I've seen the Event develop from spectacular to somehow even more polished.

Cooking Demonstrations, Autograph Signings, Food and Drink Sampling - the question is, what isn't there to do at The Delicious Food ...
#SPOTTED: ALAN DOYLE IN TORONTO FOR MEMOIR “WHERE I BELONG”
You're not Canadian if you don't at least feel some sense of familiarity when seeing his face! Folk-Rock Outfit Great Big Sea's Frontman, Alan Doyle, is doing the rounds today in Toronto in support of his new Memoir, Where I Belong.
We caught-up with Newfoundland Actor/Singer/Songwriter this morning taping an interview with Erin Davis of CHFI. With Starbucks in hand, we noticed the friendly Doyle opt against being driven in his Mercedes Benz, instead taking to walking on his own before an ...
#SPOTTED: KIESZA IN TORONTO FOR DEBUT ALBUM “SOUND OF A WOMAN”
International Pop Sensation Kiesza is currently in-town promoting her long-awaited major label Debut, Sound of a Woman. Originally from Calgary, the Dancer/Singer/Songwriter/Model at once joined the Royal Canadian Navy Reserves. Since exploding onto the Pop Music Scene with breakout hit Hideaway, the 25-year-old isn't turning back and has established herself a huge European following, hitting number one in the U.K. with that Track. The Single was a Top Five Hit here in Canada also.
Kiesza is ...
#SPOTTED: CHARLI XCX IN TORONTO AT THE HOXTON
There is no Female Artist owning Pop Music currently like Charli XCX. The 22-year-old English Singer/Songwriter's voice certainly is familiar yet oddly enough there still is a degree of unfamiliarity with her name. You've heard her ability to write and sing an Earworm of a Hook whether it be Icona Pop's I Love It, Iggy Azalea's Fancy or even Boom Clap, made famous by arguably the Summer Movie of 2014, The Fault in our Stars.
Charli XCX, née Charlotte Aitchison may be young, but she's long ...
#SPOTTED: TOVE LO IN TORONTO AT THE PHOENIX
It is impossible not to tune-in to the Radio and be hypnotized by Tove Lo's (née Tove Nilsson) new Single Habits. The Break-Up Song which has her proclaiming the necessity of "staying high all the time to keep you off her mind" is an instant Earworm and in a v. short time since her last visit to Toronto in May for Canadian Music Week, the 26-year-old Swedish Songstress' popularity stateside has grown dramatically.
Tove Lo played a bang-up Set last night at The Phoenix and the passion ...
#SPOTTED: MEGHAN TRAINOR IN TORONTO FOR “TITLE” EP
There is no Popstar I am more excited about in 2014 than Meghan Trainor. The bubbly 20-year-old Massachusetts Singer/Songwriter quickly ascended to the top of the Pop World with her international breakout Hit All About That Bass, a fun '60s-inspired Doo-Wop romp promoting the virtues of self-acceptance and positive self-image. The Song poignantly addresses a matter seldom brought to the surface at a time when bullying and body image are at then forefront of our collective social ...
#SPOTTED: TORONTO MAYORAL CANDIDATE DOUG FORD AT CITY’S “BREAKFAST TELEVISION”
And the Race heats up. Toronto Mayoral Candidate Doug Ford continues to do the rounds in the City and this morning he stopped off at City's Breakfast Television to speak to Dina Pugliese and Kevin Frankish. Ford made the headlines this week clashing with fellow Candidate John Tory over funding for the $90-million expansion of BMO Field. In his words, "One of the wealthiest Corporations in the World should not be asking the City for $10 million".
Another highlight in Ford's Campaign is his ...
