It really pisses me off because I am busting my ass out there and singing at the same time and nobody ever really…
I will go to the mat for the first Pitch Perfect. Anna Kendrick is fetching and quirky; “Cups” is ideal for shower singing; and I’m pretty undiscerning in my fondness for a cappella covers. The sequel is enjoyable not so much because it is especially good, but because I am a sucker for fan service. And that is why I…
Earlier this month when Lady Gaga released “Perfect Illusion,” a scream-pop explosion that edges on rock, my immediate reaction was a physical cringe.

To launch the summer 2013 collection, H&M hired Beyoncé to model and sing. Now, for fall, the retailer has hired Gisele Bundchen. Of course, these days, it's just not enough to be a beautiful leggy supermodel: H&M asked Gisele to sing, too. She's not bad! True, the Kinks' "All Day and All of the Night" is a wee bit…
