It’s time to put your dancing shoes on and start belting, “what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger!” because Kelly Clarkson is taking her show from the small screen to the Las Vegas stage.
On Monday (March 27), the Texas-born singer announced plans to make the Bakkt Theater stage (formerly the Zappos Theater) at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino her home for a few weeks this summer.
Dubbed “chemistry…an intimate night with Kelly Clarkson,” the multi-talented artist follows in the footsteps of many performers such as Britney Spears, Silk Sonic, Adele, and Celine Dion by taking some time to do a Las Vegas residency.
“I am so excited for these shows and couldn’t think of a better place to get back on stage than Las Vegas! The crowds in Vegas are such an amazing collection of people that simply want to have a great time, and that’s what we’re going to do!” Clarkson reveals in a statement.
“So many of my musical idols have had, and still have, incredible residencies on The Strip, and I’m so excited to create my own!”
According to a press release, the show was exclusively created for the Bakkt Theater. Clarkson and her longtime band will immerse fans in “an intimate music experience that spans her two-decade-long catalog of award-winning hits.”
Clarkson’s performance dates (so far) are: July 28, July 29, Aug. 2, Aug. 4, Aug. 5, Aug. 9, Aug. 11, Aug. 12, Aug. 18, and Aug. 19.
Fan pre-sales begin this Tuesday, March 28, at noon PST.
Citi card members can access pre-sale tickets beginning Tuesday, March 28, from 10 a.m. PST until Thursday, March 30, at 10 p.m. PST through the Citi Entertainment program.
Caesars Rewards members, Caesars Entertainment’s loyalty program, and Live Nation/Ticketmaster customers can access pre-sale tickets from Wednesday, March 29, at 10 a.m. PST until Thursday, March 30, at 10 p.m. PST.

The announcement was made Monday (Dec. 13) morning by Snoop Dogg live from the Beverly Hills Hotel in Los Angeles.
This will be the first time that the Golden Globes will not be broadcast live. Due to a behind-the-scenes racial controversy at the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) last year (and its damning report), the awards show’s broadcast partner (NBC) dropped the show from its schedule (can you say yikes?).
According to an official press release by the HFPA, “The HFPA will recognize the best in film and television on Sunday, January 9, 2022.”
Um…okay. We guess we’ll see about that.
The real questions here are “does anyone really care about the Golden Globes?” “Do we really need some rich people telling us what’s the best thing to watch in today’s day and age?” and “will anyone actually care enough to tune in?”
And the nominees for the 64th annual Grammy Awards are….

Hello Adele, and thank you for making our weekend a little sadder (in a good way).
On Friday (Oct. 15), the British songstress finally (FINALLY) released her first new song in five years.
Titled “Easy on Me,” the song is precisely what we’ve grown to expect from the singer. The track, which was teased earlier this week, gives fans a brutally honest look at her relationship and divorce from ex-husband Simon Konecki.
Instead of giving you all a breakdown, we’re going to let you listen to the track and make up your own theories.
Check out “Easy on Me” above.
“Easy on Me” is the first single from Adele’s highly anticipated fourth album, 30. The record is due out Nov. 19. Pre-orders for the record are currently available here.
There will be several special editions of the record. The Target deluxe CD will feature three bonus tracks. Walmart will offer a clear exclusive double vinyl, and Amazon will provide a white exclusive double vinyl.
30 is the long (and we mean long) awaited follow-up to 2015’s 25.
We’re two short months away from the end of the year, and the Red Hot Chili Peppers are already giving us something to look forward to in 2022.
On Thursday (Oct. 7), the California-founded band announced plans to embark on a massive tour next summer. The upcoming trek will include stops in North America, the United Kingdom, and Europe.
The three-month excursion begins its European/United Kingdom leg on June 4 at Estadio La Cartuja De Sevilla in Sevilla, Spain. The tour comes to a close on July 12 at the Volksparkstadion in Hamburg, Germany.
The North American leg kicks off shortly after on July 23 at the Empower Field at Mile High in Denver and concludes on Sept. 18 at the Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas.
Hitting the road alongside the “Californication” group will be The Strokes, Beck, St. Vincent, HAIM, A$AP Rocky, Anderson .Paak, Thundercat, and King Princess (all on select dates).
Tickets for the outing go on sale next Friday, Oct. 15, at 10 a.m. local time on Ticketmaster. The entire tour itinerary can be found below.

On Thursday (Aug. 19), the British musician announced the upcoming release of his fourth studio album. Titled = (Equals), the record is due out Oct. 29 through Atlantic Records. Fans have already gotten a firsthand listen to the new album with the release of its first single “Bad Habits.”
“‘=’ (Equals) is a really personal record and one that means a lot to me,” explains the musician.
“My life changed greatly over the past few years – I got married, became a father, experienced loss, and I reflect on these topics over the course of the album. I see it as my coming-of-age record, and I can’t wait to share this next chapter with you.”
To coincide with the new album announcement, Sheeran has revealed the album’s tracklisting. The 14-song album will include songs about love “The Joker and the Queen,” “First Times,” “2step”), loss (“Visiting Hours”), resilience (“Can’t Stop the Rain”), and fatherhood (“Sandman,” “Leave Your Life”).
As if all of that wasn’t enough, Sheeran has also released the official performance video for the song “Visiting Hours.” The almost four-minute track finds Sheeran coming to terms with the loss of his mentor and friend, Michael Gudinski. The song was reportedly written shortly after his passing and features backing vocals from Gudinski’s close friends, Kylie Minogue and Jimmy Barnes.
