There's still time to see one of the greatest shows on Earth. And it's not far, particularly if you live near Long Beach, CA (or another ocean-front city). The largest animal on the planet, the Blue Whale, is frolicking in the waters off Southern California.
I left the hospital thinking about what the future holds, and about how I'm going to take off 50 pounds during my 50th year... Fifty for 50. So, as I figure it out I'll write about it, in hopes that maybe a few of you can, too. It's not going to be easy. No great changes are.
Jenni Rivera can touch the heart. She's the sister you want, the mom figure, the playful wife, the business woman; she's many things. And she's Latina. And that's why so many in my world haven't heard of her.
Yes, they're creepy and they're kooky, mysterious and spooky, they're all together ookie...still. Catch the tour in Los Angeles and them moving on nationally until the year's end with stops in Seattle, DC and points in between.
The weight of being Madonna is never greater on you than when you record an album. After all, you inspired a generation, including the GaGa, brought William Orbit to world wide mainstream attention, you brought us Junior Vasquez and Shep Pettibone and countless others.
The headline on the iPad news program was grim..."What can the President do about gas prices? Not much..." As I sat thinking about being oil company victims, I looked up. And there it was: $5.12 per gallon.
Vesta Williams was one of the greatest singers in R&B and music, period. And I was lucky enough to call her a friend. Her voice is now silenced but her drive and passion live on forever in her music and videos.
It's easy to forget about Katrina and New Orleans, since it was almost six years ago. But actor/comic/filmmaker Harry Shearer has not forgotten. As a part-time resident of New Orleans he's lived it from the beginning.
The BMI Pop Music Awards, while star studded, may not be handing out awards to household names unless you're one of the people that hit the "Get Info" button on the track or are an aspiring singer/songwriter.
For 37 years residents of Long Beach have started many an April day with the sound of roaring race car engines, helicopters and planes overhead and tens of thousands of people descending on the city for the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach.
In the budget "debate" the Democrats have had it wrong all the time. They contended that the budget was no place to have an ideological debate about things like Planned Parenthood, the EPA or NPR. But that's exactly the place to have that debate.
I first found Teena in 1981, when I was a year out of high school. She was a little white girl from Venice Beach making all kinds of R&B, the first little red headed white girl to be signed by Motown Records in 1976 -- the woman that would become the Ivory Queen of Soul.
