WATCH: Lady Gaga sings Frank Sinatra’s ‘New York, New York’


It feels like she’s been away for ages but a new video of Lady Gaga has caught my eye and I felt I had to share.

The talented singer shows off her voice recently at an event celebrating what would have been Frank Sinatra‘s 100th birthday, which was held at the Encore Theatre in Las Vegas.

The show, which was aired on US TV  channel CBS on December 6, also featured covers of Sinatra’s classic songs by artists including Celine Dion, Carrie Underwood, Alicia Keys and John Legend. 

Gaga’s performance of ‘New York, new York’ definitely stood out to me though – that lady really does have some serious vocals and stage presence!

Enjoy!

WATCH: J-Lo’s epic AMA performance

 

So, I know the American Music Awards (AMAs) were like a week ago, but I needed to share this video for all of you who missed J-Lo‘s EPIC performance as the show.

Not only was Jenny from the block hosting the show and dazzling with her gorgeous array of outfits, but she also showed of her amazing dance skills in the 7-minute-medley of the best tracks of the year, including Bruno Mars‘ ‘Uptown Funk’ and Nicki Minaj‘s ‘Anacona’.

The sexy singer also showed off her vocals at the start of the performance with a slowed-down version of her song ‘Waiting for Tonight’.

Honestly is there anything this lady can’t do – I actually think she’s Superwoman!

So Dan Humphrey is in a band…

mothxr-bandSo I have been meaning to write this post for ages ever since I saw a photo posted on Instagram of Penn Badgely a.k.a. Dan Humprey from Gossip Girl is in a band.

At first I just thought that the guy just looked like him, but no, it was definitely ol’ lonely boy once I checked.

The actor is, I guess, now trying his hand making it in the music biz after revealing himself to be GG herself (still weird) as the show came to its end back in 2012.

The band is called Mothxr and they are actually really, really good. I’ve been listening to them over the weekend, and can honestly say they I enjoyed their music from the first play.

It’s cool, chilled-out, and quite sexy. Just like Penn himself I guess.

Checking out the band’s Instagram page it’s obvious that Penn is now converting to a more dirty rocker vibe than his Mr Humphrey character, and it’s clear he’s trying to be taken seriously as a musician.

With the songs I’ve heard, I do think that he’s really talented, and the band deserve success. However, I don’t know quite how he’ll ever been taken totally seriously as a ‘rawk god’ after his time in GG.

But I do wish him well & I will definitely be listening to the band, and even checking them out live if I ever get the chance.

Check out my favourite track of theirs ‘Victim’ below, and go to their website for more.

Woman Crush Wednesday: Hemsley & Hemsley

hemsleyFor my #WomanCrushWednesday this week, I have not one, but two awesome females.

If you haven’t heard of them yet, sisters Jasmine and Melissa Hemsley, better known as Hemsley + Hemsley are the hottest new duo to hit the cookery scene.

The uber-talented pair, who are both chefs, have gained success thanks to their awesome healthy recipes, which they feature on their website. However, the health gurus have also gained fans thanks to their fun personalities, stylish fashion choices and excellent writing skills that can be seen thanks to their blog.

In fact, the two London sisters have impressed with their writing ability, food skills and fashion sense so much that they are now also writers for Vogue and The Guardian.

Being a blogger myself, I find it really inspiring that the pair have managed to achieve so much and that is why they are my #wcw this week!

You can buy the Hemsley sisters first book ‘The Art of Eating Well’ now and  can follow them on Twitter to keep up to date with their latest news. 

VIDEO: HAIM – ‘My Song 5’ ft. A$AP Ferg

So here is the new video for Haim‘s next single ‘My Song 5’.

I have to say, it’s not what I expected from the three sisters, as usually they’re all about the coolness. However, I do think the video’s funny and is a refreshing change from girls in videos wearing nothing and writhing around sexily.

This is not one of my favourite songs on the album, but that’s only because I LOVE some of their other tunes.

Check out the video and let me know what you think!
