With the screening of a documentary of The Eagles came an admission from front-man Glenn Frey: the Eagles may go on tour again, Spin reports.
The documentary, which premiered at Sundance Film Festival, led to a Q&A with the band. Inevitably, the question of what the band may do in the future was brought up.
"The future? We don't know. We're taking it one year at a time these days," Frey said. "But we have been looking into going back out on the road and playing some shows soon, maybe incorporate some footage. We just haven't decided when yet."
So, we may have been teasing when we wrote that *NSYNC would be reuniting, but we’re completely serious when we say former *NSYNC front-man Justin Timberlake may be releasing a new single.
It started with a cryptic tweet Wednesday evening that simply read, "Thursday, January 10th, 2013, at 9:01 am PST…” but honestly, with fans so thirsty for new music from him, that’s all it took for crazy rumors to start swirling. We’ll have our answer in less than three hours, but Twitter may explode between now and then with excitement?
Although Timberlake began as a singer, first with several successful *NSYNC albums and then with a lucrative solo career, he’s taken a break from singing to try his hand at acting. He’s done hilarious skits on SNL (most famously a song involving a body part in a box), plus he’s starred in movies like "Friends with Benefits," "Bad Teacher," and "The Social Network" (as well as my all-time favorite Justin Timberlake film, Disney’s "Model Behavior").
In fact, it’s actually been almost six years since he released his last album FutureSex/LoveSounds, where he told us all he was bringing sexy back. (Jury’s still out on whether it needed to be brought back, but we appreciated the effort nonetheless.)
There's even been talk that this alleged new single might include an appearance from Jay-Z AND Beyonce, or be produced by Timbaland. Then again, it could just be that he's announcing what he's eating for breakfast. Who knows? As a not-so-secret boyband lover and pop music enthusiast (that sounds better than straight up calling myself lame, right?), I'm SO EXCITED. Justin Timberlake + music is pretty much all I ever wanted — and new music means a new album which means a new tour...
While hundreds of artists and bands sold tickets, only a few dominated the landscape in 2012. However, it was a landscape that changed often, and sometimes very quickly. Meanwhile, some new acts, especially in the pop genre, burst onto the scene with enough force to at least partially overshadow other artists who had been wildly popular only a year earlier.
At TicketNetwork.com, the best-selling concert artist of the year was one of those new bands, One Direction. We took a little time to explore some of the stats that made up their year. Click on the image below to see the full infographic.
You know how everyone talks about how awful it is to be alone around the holidays?
Apparently that fear extends to celebrities, businesses, and even satirical political commentators, as they’ve all decided to join one union or another just in time to have someone (or thing?) to kiss under the mistletoe.
Taylor Swift and Harry Styles
The union of Taylor Swift and One Direction’s Harry Styles caused an explosion within the tween (and, let’s be honest, teen and adult) blogospheres as the couple was spotted – get this – holding hands. The newly-confirmed relationship provided answers to "who will be the subject of Taylor’s next song?" and "WHAT IS GOING ON WITH ONE DIRECTION RIGHT AT THIS VERY MOMENT?" (caps lock necessary). It broke the hearts of many who wanted to date the superstars themselves, and even caused a few to balk at the age difference between Swift, who will be 23 next week, and Styles, who turned 18 in February. (Fun fact: Styles was born in 1994. Seriously.) Tonight, the two will team up for the Z100 Jingle Ball with Justin Bieber at Madison Square Garden – and there are miraculously still tickets left. All we can say to this is: OMG.
As the days in November wound down, there was one thing that I kept hearing people say, "I can't believe its almost December already." Well, you can eliminate the "almost" from that statement because December is here with all the cold weather and holiday cheer you can handle.
For a lot of us, December also marks one of the busiest times of the entire year between holiday shopping, visiting family, decorating... well, you get the idea. So, if you are looking for something fun to do in between all the holiday chaos, here are some of the top events that are coming up in this month:
The Rolling Stones: The aging rockers celebrate their 50th anniversary with three shows, including December 8 in Brooklyn and December 13 and 15 in Newark.
