Emmys 2020: ‘Schitt’s Creek’ wins first seven Emmy awards of the night

During his opening monologue of the 2020 Emmys, Jimmy Kimmel joked that the ABC censors ordered that the name of multiple nominee “Schitt’s Creek” be flashed on screen every time the show was mentioned. Just, you know, so no one at home got the wrong idea about what word was being said. “HBO can show us a big blue penis, no problem,” Kimmel joked in reference to a scene in the nominated series “Watchmen.” I can’t say the word ‘Schitt’s Creek’ with a ‘c’.” It’s a good thing the censors didn’t rea...

Why Marc Bolan was 'the perfect pop star', by Elton John, U2 and more

The T Rex singer captivated generations with his strutting music and hyper-sexual charisma. As a tribute album is released, stars explain why he is glam’s greatest icon In early 1971, a nine-year-old called David Evans was sitting at home in the suburbs of Dublin watching Top of the Pops. He was already a Beatles fan, but, by his own admission, he was completely unprepared for what was about to happen on screen.“It was kind of challenging,” says Evans – better known as U2’s guitarist the Edge – ...

As Collective Soul’s ‘The World I Know’ Turns 25, ‘It Still Really Gets Me,’ Says Frontman Ed Roland

No one really knew which record store bin to put Collective Soul in when the Atlanta band broke onto the scene — they were labeled everything from “bubblegum grunge” to southern blues-rock to neo-’60s rock. Their breakout occurred in 1993 with the sudden success of “Shine,” a fuzzy, quasi-spiritual anthem that pinged from college radio […]

Revisit Six of Elton John’s Most Iconic Concerts, Streaming in Their Entirety for 72 Hours

Now a knight (the first openly gay musician to be so anointed), Sir Elton is using his enormous public platform to encourage youth who m...

Fashion retail is at an unprecedented place. With COVID-19 restrictions and guidelines everywhere, times are extremely tough. Shopping in brick ’n mortar stores is not what it used to be.
