Hailee Steinfeld Sends Positive Message with Debut Track “LOVE MYSELF”

Aside from the obvious message about self-love, Steinfeld addresses being body positive with “Love Myself” better than Meghan Trainor was able to do with “All About That Bass”. The difference between Steinfeld’s take on being true to oneself and Trainor’s take is that “All About That Bass” still focuses on what others, particularly boys, think of you. Steinfeld ignores that entirely and focuses on what … Continue reading Hailee Steinfeld Sends Positive Message with Debut Track “LOVE MYSELF”

Lana del Rey Remains True to Her Musical Style While Giving the Audience Something Different with Her Latest Album, “Honeymoon”

Lana del Rey came out with her latest album Honeymoon late September after being on what seemed like too long of a hiatus.

But sometimes, I miss the country “Teardrops on My Guitar” Taylor – remember those awesome tracks off her Fearless album?

Swizzle’, but I wouldn’t mind her going … Continue reading FOUR ARTISTS WE MISS TO DEATH

Augusta Ray I had the incredible opportunity to hear Augusta live multiple times last summer back when she was a local artist. I’m not exaggerating when I say that singer-songwriter, Augusta Campoli, is going to be huge. She personally told me that her stage name is Augusta Ray because she wanted something simple, that people can pronounce easily. I’d say that’s a smart move! With … Continue reading The Music Scene: Artists to Keep an Eye On

Why Nina Dobrev’s Departure from the CW’s The Vampire Diaries Should Have Signified the End of the Series

I have been watching the CW’s The Vampire Diaries (TVD) since it first started to air in the fall of 2009. The show is based on L.J. Smith’s book series, but the writers, namely Julie Plec and Caroline Dries, began to take their own direction as the show became more popular after the first season.

FIVE INCREDIBLE ED SHEERAN SONGS YOU PROBABLY DON’T KNOW

When I say that these are songs you probably don’t know, I’m not trying to insult you. I’m not saying that you aren’t a true Ed Sheeran fan. As an avid Ed Sheeran listener myself, I only recently discovered these gems. These tracks are either part of the deluxe version of Sheeran’s popular albums, or they are from less popular EPs and much older albums. … Continue reading FIVE INCREDIBLE ED SHEERAN SONGS YOU PROBABLY DON’T KNOW
