Gwen Stefani Is The New Lip Synch Queen
By now we all know that Gwen Stefani is more than capable of holding her own vocally as a solo artist or as the lead vocalist for her group No Doubt. Last night we learned that she has another talent as well. Lip Synching. Who knew??? It was probably one of the better Fallon segments since he's been at the helm of the Tonight Show. Even if it was nothing more than one big promo for The Voice, it was still pretty darned entertaining!
9-17-14 Word of the Day - Taylor Swift
New Day, New Album, New Taylor Swift
Over the span of her previous four studio albums and various live and holiday compilations, we have learned a lot about this young and talented performer. First and foremost, like many female twentysomethings, she's dealing with boy troubles......and lots of them if you believe the headlines from the gossip writers. For Taylor Swift the problem is magnified even more because of the constant spotlight and scrutiny from critics and her fanbase. In a recent interview with Rolling Stone magazine, the young singer says it's time to change things up a bit as she continues to discover who she really is. Walking away from country music, swearing off dating, and buidling a "fortress" around her heart is just the beginning.
