The iHeart Radio Music Awards were supposed to happen this coming Sunday, March 29th. That’s obviously not a possibility anymore because of COVID-19 lockdown. Instead Elton John will be hosting the iHeart Living Room Concert for America, a one hour commercial-free special to raise money for Feeding America and First Responders Children’s Foundation with performances from Alicia Keys, Backstreet Boys, Billie Eilish, Billie Joe Armstrong, Mariah Carey, and Tim McGraw. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Is everyone done with Elite season 3? Because I am and I need to talk about it but Kathleen has to share a television now that everyone’s staying home so she hasn’t caught up. Let’s give it a couple more days because I know some of you haven’t gotten into it yet and you’ll need to start from season 1.  Read Full Intro

It’s music video day so let’s keep it going. Not that it’s a competition but what was the biggest video that’s dropped today? It depends on how you measure “big”, right? And there’s no one right way to measure it. Taylor Swift is a global superstar. In the western world, she’s dominating the headlines with her video for “The Man”, she’s all over radio chatter and the entertainment news shows – she’s the top story. Full Story

I feel vindicated today. Sasha’s been mocking my BTS obsession for weeks. This morning she texted, probably after watching them on Carpool Karaoke with James Corden. Her message:  “I do think my goal is to laugh as much as BTS.”  Exactly. That’s exactly why, as I wrote yesterday Full Story

If you’re new to BTS, one of the most basic things to know about the band is that their career has progressed through eras. I don’t want to get too granular about this but an era for BTS isn’t exactly limited to a one album cycle – sometimes an era spans two or three thematically connected albums. Full Story

I’m not f-cking ready and I’m not even technically a member of the BTS ARMY. My friends are As IF-ing me right now because all I ever do, every day and multiple times now for weeks, is text them or make them come over and talk to me about BTS.

Dear Gossips,

It’s been about four years since I started mentioning BTS on this site. And, generally, I’ve been able to keep my obsession in check. But, man, the last few weeks have been out of control as we approach the release of their new album, Map of the Soul: 7.  Read Full Intro
