Here Are The 2015 MTV VMA Nominations

Who could’ve predicted that after wagging a foam finger all over Robin Thicke, two years later Miley Cyrus would end up hosting the VMAs? Guess it’s not that surprising, but it certainly guarantees a good show, which is the whole point of the VMAs, anyway. What isn’t the least bit surprising is that Taylor Swift… More »

The Week In Pop: Hilary Duff Joined Tinder And, Oh Yeah, Made A Decent Album Too

It was obvious from the beginning that Hilary Duff signing up for Tinder was a stunt to promote her comeback album. What wasn’t obvious was what an elaborate stunt it would turn out to be — not just a headline-grabbing move to get people talking about Duff again but the premise for a craven music… More »

5 Memorable Sets From Bonnaroo 2015 Sunday

Sundays at festivals can so often be a bittersweet thing. People are starting to get ragged, the festival grounds start to smell of some kind of putrid something, the big climactic headliners may have come and gone. So often, whoever’s left playing that final night, when the work week looms around the corner, has a… More »

The Week In Pop: Nate Ruess Went Solo, Made A Fun. Album Anyway

Andrew Dost got screwed. Last year, when Fun. frontman Nate Ruess unilaterally decided to transform the next Fun. album into his solo debut, he essentially cut his bandmates out of one of music’s most bankable franchises. Fun.’s excellent-if-sometimes-grating 2012 LP Some Nights rocketed the trio from a respectable cult following to multiplatinum Grammy-winning pop superstardom. More »

The 8 Best Performances Of Governors Ball 2015 Friday

For being the biggest city in America, it took a hell of a long time for New York to lock down a festival. Sure, we have CMJ and Northside and venues booked tight throughout the year, but recreating the traditional “field day out” experience that’s become the norm across the rest of the country i… More »

Watch Florence + The Machine’s Better-Than-It-Had-To-Be Good Morning America Performance

Watch Florence + The Machine Perform “Ship To Wreck” On Jimmy Fallon

Florence + The Machine just released their really solid new album How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful, and Florence Welch is starting to make the late-night rounds, thankfully without the stool that she had to drag around to her appearances on Saturday Night Live and Jools Holland.

Premature Evaluation: Florence + The Machine How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful

Florence Welch does not half-step. I mean that literally: At Coachella, Welch leapt from the stage and broke her foot, and watching her, I had no idea that anything was wrong. She’d have to spend the next few months in a cast, performing while sitting down. But out there in the crowd, I don’t eve… More »

The 5 Best Songs Of The Week

Memorial Day weekend is upon us, but for the most part this week’s best singles aren’t the ideal soundtrack for your cookout. (Speaking of which: We’re still waiting for those BBQ bangers you promised, Kanye.) The songs that struck us this week are mostly serious and/or introspective, and even the loud ones are a better… More »

Florence + The Machine – “Delilah”

Florence Welch knows what she’s doing. Florence + The Machine’s new album How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful is coming in a couple of weeks, and all the songs we’ve heard have been big, wide-open stompers that make the most of Welch’s solar flare of a voice. We’ve heard a bunch of songs already: the… More »

Watch Florence + The Machine Return To SNL With A Stool

Florence Welch is still feeling the effects of the foot injury that she incurred at Coachella, so she had to do her second go-around on Saturday Night Live while sitting down on a stool. But like her also stationary Jools Holland performance from a few weeks ago, she has a commanding enough stage presence to… More »

Watch Florence + The Machine Perform With A Broken Foot On Jools Holland

Florence Welch broke her foot during her first Coachella set earlier this month, but she’s still powering on and performing live.

SNL’s Last Musical Guests This Season: Wiz Khalifa, Florence + The Machine, Rihanna

Saturday Night Live took to Instagram today to announce the last three host/musical guest pairings of the season.

Watch Florence Welch & Father John Misty Cover “Love Hurts” At Coachella

Last weekend, as Florence + The Machine were playing the Coachella main stage just before Drake’s headlining spot, Florence Welch broke her foot.

Florence Welch Broke Her Foot During Her Coachella Set

I went to college in L.A., which means I experienced Coachella during the only period of life when a decent human should be subjected to it. That three-day desert festival marathon is a rough one, man. Don’t take it from me though; just ask Florence Welch, who somehow broke her foot during the festival. Welch,… More »
