It's mid-March, and the NCAA madness has begun. Even though you're probably getting excited to root on your alma mater, as John Oliver notes, the games are so full of product placement and branding that the only thing left to be sponsored are the sponsorships themselves.
Despite college coaches getting paid millions while the hard-working athletes are getting paid nothing, the games are undeniably exciting, especially if you bet money on them. For more upcoming events to get the spring season r... [Read more]

There’s been a lot of talk lately about Madonna’s age, namely that she’s too old to be doing what she’s doing. After her fall at the Brit Awards, critics have been voicing their concerns about her choice to still be on stage breaking it down like she is at 56-years-old. However, Madonna tripping over a designer cape doesn't quite prove that she’s about to bite the dust. The media is using this blunder as an excuse to share their overall disapproval of the Pop Queen’s style – while her stage ant... [Read more]
Madonna has just announced her upcoming cross-country trek - the 2015 Rebel Heart Tour - in support of her thirteenth studio album of the same name, which is planned to be officially released later this week.

Alluding to various aspects of the books, wizard rock, or wrock, sings of bizarre creatures and is often lyrically comedic, which satisfies both my lite... [Read more]
Okay, ladies. So it's that marvelous time of the month when we can let all of our 19 personalities shine through simultaneously for about 1 to 2 weeks. The struggle is real with PMS and the emotional turmoil it brings, and though I DO feel sorry for my boyfriend, coworkers, my cat, and anyone else who makes eye contact with me on the highway (even if by accident), I would just like to state: YOU ARE THE LUCKY ONES.
While others have the ability to run away, I'm stuck here hosting the battle ... [Read more]
Musicians cannot escape the stereotype of being hard-partying, womanizing, high school dropouts, and while this is true for many, there are diamonds in the rough! From microbiology to 18th century French literature, you may be surprised at how many bands you love are fronted by utter geniuses.
1.) Brian May
Not only did Brian May pen one of the most famous songs of the last century – Queen's “We Will Rock You” – but during his time off from touring the world, he managed to obtain a PhD in astro... [Read more]
As soon as the weather hits “sunny and 75”, Northeastern country music fans are itching to kick off the summer with Luke Bryan tickets, a Miranda Lambert concert, or Jason Aldean tour tickets. And, like most concert rituals, tailgating in the lot outside the venue is a given. Fans will post the obligatory status update to kick off the party, “It’s a smile, it’s a kiss. It’s a sip of wine, it’s summertime,” in honor of Kenny Chesney. Most of the not-originally-from-the-South redneck wannabes will... [Read more]
