Dear Beyonce, First you killed it at the inauguration with your unbelievable rendition of the National Anthem, when you ripped your earpiece out like the true diva that you are.  Then we found out that you sang to a pre-recorded track.  Don’t worry, we had your back, we know it was cold outside! Then you sang it again, acapella, at a Super Bowl Press Conference that you held and now you've blown us away with the half time show at the Super Bowl last night.  Listen, we don’t care if you lip-synch, we honestly don’t care WHAT you do.

This morning, a funeral was held for former mayor Ed Koch, who passed away last Friday.  Mayor Bloomberg, Former President Bill Clinton, Christine Quinn, and Rudolf Giuliani were among the many people who spoke, and thousands of others gathered at the Temple Emanu-El on the East Side of Manhattan to pay their respects.  He was the 105th Mayor on New York City, serving from Jan. 1, 1978, to Dec. 31, 1989, when New York was filled with graffiti, crime, and was considered much more dangerous than it is today.

During an intimate performance at the Sundance Film Festival last week, Courtney Love covered Jay-Z’s  “99 Problems” and introduced it by saying, “This either sucks or it's genius, I don't know." That’s our girl!  Courtney has never been afraid to take a risk and it’s one of the things we love most about her. While we know Courtney has gone through periods where she has indeed had 99 problems, nowadays Courtney is doing just fine. Look out for her new single, “This is War” which comes out February 7th.
