Missy Elliott – WTF (Where They From)

This week rapper Missy Elliott released her new song WTF (Where They From). Missy teamed up with this Pharrell to produce the catchy song that I predict will be playing in a lot of gay clubs this weekend so I thought I’d share the official video which I can only describe as over the top.

Jordan Smith on The Voice

Sergio and I have been watching The Voice this season, and ever since the blind auditions I’ve been a bit obsessed with one contestant in particular, Jordan Smith. The unlikely singer from coal country in Kentucky has an amazing voice, but it is his comments after singing that touch my heart the most; unfortunately neither clip capture what I’m talking about but check out his rendition of Chandelier in the video above and his performance from last night when he sang Halo by Beyoncé.

Anyone else watching The Voice? I’m curious if you also think this guy is special.

WELL-STRUNG: The Devil Went Down to Georgia

I saw this live in Provincetown this summer when we went to see WELL-STRUNG and I happened to see the video appear as a suggestion on what to watch.  Enjoy their version which happens to also feature J.S. Bach.

When Love Hurts by JoJo

New England native and pop star, JoJo, is back and she’s smoking hot in her new music video. Are you hearing this out at the clubs? It’s practically begging for a remix. Who will be the first to do this for me?

Controversy presents Janet Jackson tribute – Saturday, Oct 3rd

Nathanael Bluhm, Machine BostonJANET JACKSON Tribute Night: A Grown & Sexy Affair

Looking for something fun to do tonight? Check out Controversy upstairs at Machine in the Fenway.  The evening will include a loving tribute to Ms. Jackson by Teashaboo, Endego & Karizma, while one of my favorite DJs, Begbick, plays from Janet’s impressive catalog of music.

While there is no dress code, grown and sexy attire is strongly suggested. The Facebook event page asks “come dressed for our red carpet photo booth.” and all club kids know you always do as the DJ asks.

Upstairs at Machine | 1254 Boylston St. in the Fenway | 10pm – 2am

Just to get you in the mood, I’ve included one of my all time favorite songs from Ms. Jackson. This late 80s hit seems appropriate considering her absence from the public. Welcome back Janet – I’ve missed you too. 

Madonna’s Rebel Heart beats in Boston tonight

Madonna is in Boston tonight with her Rebel Heart tour. She is and has been one of my favorite entertainers ever since I first heard her in the early 1980s. She was a role model, trendsetter and provocateur and I loved her instantly.  I’m not at her show tonight but I hope that everyone attending has a great time. I’ve opted to include this vintage clip of Madonna from her Like A Virgin Tour. The medley even includes a nod to Michael Jackson’s Beat It.
