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?

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

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

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

Fall Concert Series: Fetty Wap

I still can’t believe Hofstra University hired Fetty Wap to perform for its annual Fall Fest. Fall Fest weekend is a weekend for family, friends and alumni to gather together and celebrate. Hofstra packs Saturday and Sunday with sporting events, tours, talks on special topics and more for all visitors. The main event is the actual… Continue reading Fall Concert Series: Fetty Wap

Fall Concert Series: Alessia Cara

I drove four hours through a rainy night to see a pop concert, and it was well worth it. I wanted to see Alessia Cara in concert as soon as I heard her song, “Here.” I totally related to her experience in the song: being at a party, but wishing she were somewhere else spending… Continue reading Fall Concert Series: Alessia Cara

MTV Video Music Awards 2016: First Thoughts

The VMAs has been dubbed as the “superbowl for pop music” and may be one of the most controversial award shows out there (flashback to Miley Cyrus’ 2013 performance with Robin Thicke). I was lucky enough to attend the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards on Aug. 28th at Madison Square Garden in New York City. I… Continue reading MTV Video Music Awards 2016: First Thoughts
