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

Phun in Philadelphia

I underrated Philadelphia as a kid. I decided it was old, small and dull. It wasn’t a “real” city (AKA not New York). However, over the last few years, I have really grown to love Philly and visit every chance I get. I made it to the City of Brotherly Love twice in one week… Continue reading Phun in Philadelphia

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: 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

My 24 Hour Visit to Massachusetts

I’m not one to make spontaneous plans. This is mostly because I prefer to have things planned out and my schedule is forever packed. However, this is not a normal summer for me. So, when a spontaneous opportunity arose two weeks ago, I took it. My sorority sister, Sarah, had an extra concert ticket for… Continue reading My 24 Hour Visit to Massachusetts
