On trainwrecks and twerking

So, I’m going to go out on a limb here and assume that you either watched the VMAs on Sunday or heard about them Monday and possibly have an opinion. Of course, the runaway performance of the evening was Miley Cyrus. Should we be surprised? I mean, c’mon, this is MTV and the 10th anniversary…

This or That: Lady Business

Seriously, this week has been all about lady business. From discussions about Helen Gurley Brown to the Bic for Her pen dustup (I was all thinking that surely that can’t be real. I’ll stop now lest I hijack the purpose of this post.), so why not a This or That focusing on lady business? And…

Lady business revealed

Thanks for playing! Here are the details on our women in rock-themed Friday Fiver. Welcome to the Sunday Scoop, where all will be revealed …

She will be missed

I woke up this morning to the news that Amy Winehouse had been found dead in her London home. ¬†Although I haven’t seen any official reports as to the cause of death, as a long time fan of Winehouse (and someone who has picked her for the dead pool game the past two years), I…

Kids’ Music…or just GOOD MUSIC?

I invite you to decide…

Lucy Schwartz: What A Year She’s Having!

Things are definitely looking up for relative newcomer Lucy Schwartz. The brunette beauty, still only twenty years old, has already toured with Lilith Fair and performed on “The Tonight Show”. Her “Graveyard” video just won “The Freshmen” at mtvU (putting it in regular rotation at mtvU!), she’s recorded a song for the movie “Shrek Forever…

Hole: Nobody’s Daughter

Okay; I’m a huge fan of Courtney Love. HYOOGE. I’ve loved her music from Pretty on the Inside to Live Through This and Celebrity Skin (in the interest of full disclosure, I did not get America’s Sweetheart). I pulled for her through her days with Kurt Cobain, when she was much-maligned as the Yoko to…
