Justin Timberlake: Can’t Stop The Feeling

Justin Timberlake Cant Stop This FeelingWhile everyone is still talking about the latest release by Beyoncé, Lemonade, earlier this week Mr. Timberlake released a fun new music video for his song Can’t Stop The Feeling, a celebration of shaking off your troubles and busting a move; a perfect song to get ready to on a Saturday evening.

It has been reported that Prince has died

PrinceFrom HuffingtonPost Prince, the legendary musician who brought us countless hits, such as “Purple Rain” and “When Doves Cry,” has died, TMZ reports. He was 57. The award-winning artist died on Thursday at his Paisley Park compound in Minnesota. The cause of death has yet to be released.

News of Prince’s death has hit me the way many said they felt when David Bowie’s passing was reported. Not only was his music incredibly influential but his string of hits and protégés who he nurtured and encouraged was impressive to say the least.  Although Prince’s influence had waned over the past 20 years, his legacy is impressive and it bothers me to write about his passing.

I’ve been watching The Voice this season and have to admit I’ve developed a little bit of a crush on the handsome and charming contestant Bryan Bautista.  I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one – just last week guest coach Miley Cyrus was practically gushing when she talked to him. I’ve come to refer to Bryan as my TV crush. Check out his audition and wait til the very end – he is more than just a handsome face – he is a bit of a practical joker and very funny too.
