Kicking-off this past Friday, the first of two weekends at Coachella 2019 kicked-off in Indio, California. With headliners Childish Gambino, Billie Eilish, 1975, Khalid and Ariana Grande, plenty of surprises were unveiled, including the latter’s surprise performance with ’90s Boy Band supreme, *NSYNC for a rendition of Tearin’ Up My Heart! Her star-studded set also included an appearance by Nicki Minaj despite some technical difficulties.
During the first weekend, zedd in his set brought-out Katy Perry for a performance as a surprise for their new single, 365.

Check-out more here on Coachella‘s YouTube Channel 1 which includes sets by zedd, Khalid and Ariana Grande (still to be uploaded).
We saw and were floored by Taylor Swift‘s BAD BLOOD Video, but Madonna never has been one to be outshone. She’s back and wants you to know, BITCH, SHE’S MADONNA! After a Premiere on Tidal, the Video is available now to all.
Beyoncé! Miley Cyrus! Katy Perry! Rita Ora! Nicki Minaj! Madonna pulls-out all the stops and the Big Girls to do battle on her new Music Video for BITCH I’M MADONNA (ft. Nicki Minaj)... and we LOVE IT. Sure it’s no match for Bad Blood, but it’s still Madge.
See the Video:
But where’s Gaga?

It was only a matter of time before Sir Mix-a-Lot got a revival! Nicki Minaj‘s new Video for Single Anaconda finally has been unreleased. The v. revealing Clip shows the Rapper/Singer back at it in a big way! I like that she’s taking female objectification and re-owning it. She even got her Buddy Drake out to enjoy a bit of a Chair Dance – not that it was a hard sell I’m sure… Definitely not safe for work – just saying…
Watch the Clip:

Although they formed six years ago, Twin Sister Duo Heathers finally are getting their big break, starting with Canada first in their North American debut. 22-year-olds Ellie and Louise Macnamara hail from Dublin, Ireland. Although their Folk-Rock influences range from Bruce Springsteen to Simon & Garfunkel, they are avid Pop Fans through and through. “We listen to a lot of Pop like Katy Perry“, Ellie tells me. “We love Katy Perry and everything to Santigold and even Nicki Minaj.”. They’d even go as far as to describe their new sound as being “dancey”.
As part of their Promotion today in support of brand new Disc Kingdom, select Media got to tour Toronto with Heathers on a Sightseeing Trolley Tour around the City where even longtime Torontonians like me learned some interesting facts about our City. For example, I had no clue the CN Tower is built on man-made land. For real!
Although the Sisters have been here for a couple days, they admit to loving Toronto and with their schedule filled with work, work, work, tomorrow they will be taking some time out to peruse the Fashions of Queen Street. “We did check-out Eaton Centre and enjoyed some Frozen Yogurt!”, although sadly they not get much shopping done.
In the meantime, enjoy their fantastic new Single Forget Me Knots:
It’s alright not to feel okay, indeed. Who can relate?
Some Snaps below:
An Instagram account is to come soon. They promised! In the meantime, follow them on Twitterhere.
Heathers play The Supermarket tomorrow night at 9:00 PM. Kingdom is now available in stores via Sony Music Canada.
If Mariah Carey approves, I do too. Check-out this amazing performance from American Idol Contestant Candice Glover of The Cure‘s 1989 Hit Lovesong. Although covered prior by the likes of Adele and Tori Amos, Glover offers a fresh take with some innovative runs. All four Judges were on their feet and Keith Urban bowed to the 23-year-old Singer from South Carolina. Could there be any greater honour than having glitter tossed at you by Carey?
Watch the Performance including Glitterbomb below:
Although it’s only been a few months since they were here last, Toronto certainly loves their Aerosmith and tonight the “Bad Boys from Boston” played before yet another huge crowd at Air Canada Centre for the second leg of their Global Warming Tour. Frontman and former American Idol Judge Steven Tyler made it into the City early yesterday and was spotted eating at Camros, an Organic Persian-inspired Eatery on Hayden Street.
Tyler was spotted following tonight’s Show, where Aerosmith performed Jimi Hendrix Tribute in celebration of that Rock Legend’s Birthday today. Although his Handlers earlier in the day had intercepted Tyler‘s time with Fans, he stayed true to his word, making time for Fans at his Hotel afterward shortly before midnight. “You crazy F*ckers!”, he joked as he head-over all Rock-Glam in fur to reward Fans generously who waited in the cold for him.
I was lucky enough to get a Snap with Tyler, whose work as a Vocalist I’ve admired since Childhood – reaching feverish heights in High School. He gave me a big hug and playfully took the hood on my Parka and covered my face, telling me he loved me! Unforgettable. Surely Nicki Minaj‘s opinion of him would change after meeting him too? The Rapper/Singer and current American Idol Judge currently is feuding with Tyler over a statement he made challenging her ability as a Judge, saying “If it was Bob Dylan, Nicki Minaj would have had him sent to the Cornfield!“. Minaj interpreted that as a Racist Remark and took to her Twitter account to prove her point.
In celebration of Jimi Hendrix‘s Birthday, Aerosmith incorporated a Tribute to that Rock Legend at their Show tonight and they are headed to Las Vegas next this weekend. Their 15th Studio Disc Music from Another Dimension! is now in-stores with latest Single What Could Have Been Love performing rather well on the Adult Contemporary Charts in the U.S.
