Do You Know the Name of Taylor Swift’s New Album?

While this blog is mostly about travel, I do have my little entertainment section. I haven’t posted in this section for much too long, but that’s because I was writing bi-weekly celebrity-related content for Her Campus, an online collegiate magazine. However, my college days are now over, so I can direct my entertainment writing back… Continue reading Do You Know the Name of Taylor Swift’s New Album?

How Fans Saw the Post Malone 2018 MTV Video Music Awards Performance

The 2018 MTV Video Music Awards were met with a lot of criticism: the deserving artists didn’t win, the Aretha Franklin tribute by Madonna was lackluster and Avicii was almost completely ignored. I did not read much disapproval, however, about Post Malone’s performance, the finale of the night. The grand ending of the 2018 Video Music… Continue reading How Fans Saw the Post Malone 2018 MTV Video Music Awards Performance

A New London Original in NYC

I make it my mission to see at least one Broadway show per semester and thanks to Hofstra University Honors College, I was able to check that box early. I saw a newer play, Farinelli and the King, at the Belasco Theatre in New York. The show tells the story of how the mentally unfit… Continue reading A New London Original in NYC

Fall Concert Series 2.0: Lil Wayne

“NO WAY WE ARE GETTING LIL WAYNE AT FALL FEST OMG (insert crying emojis)” is exactly what I tweeted when I found out the rapper was coming to Hofstra for Fall Fest. I was excited because being a two-time Grammy winner and having a mountain of songs under his belt, Wayne was one of the… Continue reading Fall Concert Series 2.0: Lil Wayne

Fall Concert Series 2.0: Bruno Mars

Bruno Mars was dripping in Finesse as he opened his 24K Magic World Tour at The Nassau Coliseum on Long Island with his song “Finesse.” I’ll have to say, I was surprised when he did not open the show with “24 K Magic,” the first song on his 24K Magic album and, obviously, the name… Continue reading Fall Concert Series 2.0: Bruno Mars

Fall Concert Series 2.0: Tash Sultana

I am no longer physically in Australia, but I would like to say my trip was extended until October 5th, when I saw Melbourne native Tash Sultana perform at The Brooklyn Steel. After falling in love with her music and seeing her at Groovin’ the Moo music festival in Australia last semester, my roommate Sierra… Continue reading Fall Concert Series 2.0: Tash Sultana

Best and Worst of the MTV 2017 Video Music Awards

I was really feeling the FOMO (fear of missing out) of not being at the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards, since I was there in the pit having the time of my life last year. Despite my consistency of almost never being able to watch award shows, I made sure I was home to view… Continue reading Best and Worst of the MTV 2017 Video Music Awards

Oz: Purpose World Tour

Monday, March 6 may not see like that important of a date to most, but I had been looking forward to it for months. It is the day I saw Justin Bieber on his Purpose World Tour at NIB Stadium in Perth, Australia. As soon as I found out he would be in Perth when… Continue reading Oz: Purpose World Tour

Fall Concert Series: Carrie Underwood

Carrie Underwood has the most effortless voice in the world. You won't catch me listening to country music very often, but Carrie is an exception to all the laws of the universe. Honestly, she might not even be human; she is more like an angel. I recall my nine-year-old self watching Carrie on American Idol and rooting… Continue reading Fall Concert Series: Carrie Underwood

Fall Concert Series: Charlie Puth

My boss: “I am going to the Charlie Puth concert, too.” Me: “OMG, I love him!” My boss: “So does my thirteen-year-old daughter.”’ That is what pop-music does. Its mainstream and general appeal attracts people of all ages to the artists. I attended Charlie Puth’s We Don’t Talk Tour and fan-girled just as much as the… Continue reading Fall Concert Series: Charlie Puth
