I've been to Coachella once. It was back in the day when I could stomach outdoor concerts that consisted of thousands of people whacked out of their mind on drugs and alcohol, and each one of them hoping to get laid. I'm not judging these people, because I was one of them.
You probably spent weeks making sure that you had the right car seat, the best stroller, the appropriate clothes and nursery for your child. It takes time and effort to make informed decisions about parenting and about our child’s environment. Today, I would like to ask you to consider an aspect of your child’s environment that you may not have thought about. What is your child’s “sonic environment?” What sounds are they surrounded by? How safe are their toys?
Using a musical cue for sleep with your baby and young child can be a wonderful way to help your child know when it is time to sleep. It also serves as a way for them to enter sleep more easily and is a wonderful tool to build a bedtime routine around.
Here are my top 10 anti-love/anti-Valentine's Day songs of the moment.
The past few days have been excruciatingly hard on the millions of fans worldwide coping with Whitney Houston's passing on the eve of the 54th Grammy Awards, her favorite event. Music's biggest stars paid a special and beautiful tribute to the late Houston on Sunday night, and now we're learning that tonight's episode of Glee will also pay tribute to the singer.
Just one night before the world was set to celebrate the music industry, one of the most talented acts has passed away. Whitney Houston, known for her soulful and passionate voice, has left the world shocked as she leaves behind her legacy. A true inspiration to musicians and fans alike, Houston’s death has left many crushed.
In a bold move on Sunday night, Katy Perry took the Grammy stage and debuted a new song, "Part of Me," to serenade her audience while sending ex-husband Russell Brand a poignant message— it's over, but I'm doin' fine!
Although the night had a somber feel to it given the sudden and tragic news of Whitney Houston's passing the night before, Sunday's 54th Annual Grammy Awards were a huge night for British singer Adele. The 23-year-old took home all six Grammys she was nominated for, proving that 2011 was the year of "Rolling In The Deep."
Writing about love is daunting. It really is. To paint an accurate illustration of the way I felt when I first began tackling this topic, I ask you to envision me—a skinny, uncoordinated white girl measuring all of 5’3”—facing off with Shaquille O’Neal on the basketball court. The entire scenario is silly and farcical, and that’s exactly how I felt trying to form accurate conclusions about love, a force that is much like a giant on a basketball court. It’s towering and intimidating and has the capacity to undo me. The challenge was intriguing, however, so I couldn’t say no.
Men and women usually go to the club for vastly different reasons. Men go to the club to find women, find women, and to find women. Women go to the club to sometimes find a man, but also to enjoy themselves by dancing and drinking the night away with friends. Men are reactionary creatures. If you want to know what we think about you at the club, all you need to do is evaluate one thing: Your activity at the club. Men read what women give us to read. It’s as simple as that.
Want a little Einstein around the house? The role of genetics in intelligence—i.e., the extent to which our smarts are inherited—has long been an academic war zone. What can raise your child's chances? There's no single best recipe, but studies prove that keeping TV out of the nursery, shelling out for music lessons, breastfeeding, having a big library, and withholding cookies are just a few ways to boost your child's chances of success.
It seems that my opinion on how important music is to a relationship and how my taste in music is far superior to most people's has ruffled some feathers. So, in an effort to help those poor Lady Gaga, Coldplay and Justin Bieber fans out there, I'm doing them a favor by offering my 10 favorite love songs... that aren't mainstream and lame.
The creepiest song lyrics ever. Having babies too late may be even less safe than we thought. Do not start having sex with your neighbor if you want a relationship. Is your guy totally into someone else? Plan B may soon be available over-the-counter. Good-looking friends make you look... better. Hugs may not be as innocent as you think. France may ban prostitution.
