Jimmy Fallon is sooo excited to hear Rufus Wainwright sing. I love the idea that celebrities are just as “fangirly” about other artists as we are about them.

Unabashed adoration for someone you admire?

Jimmy, you just keep getting more bonus points in my book!

I hope they’re still friends…

My favorite Britney song performed live. *squeal*

This song was a bonus track off the deluxe version of her latest album, Femme Fatale. I’m so surprised they didn’t make this a single because the beat is killer. I mean, it was obviously used structurally in the show as a transitional song, but it’s still cool that they gave a B-Side a spot on the setlist. Additionally, unlike some of the other songs, “He About To Lose Me” was actually performed live. (Or so I have been informed)

Shrewd readers will remember that I used this song as a pop showpiece in my Social Network Mixtape. I still maintain that it’s a great song that nicely demonstrates the Mark/Sean/Eduardo triangle.

"Well, at first we thought of just "The Onyx Tour” because onyx is a black gemstone and it’s supposed to ward off evil. And they actually, this is real, like they have black stones and um, mines and stuff like that Indians go to and they’re, like, really scared to even approach them ‘cause some of them are so strong and powerful, not in a bad way, but just the energy from them is like a…spiritual thing.
And um, the whole concept with the tour that I liked about it was that onyx… whatever light is reflected on it, that’s what it becomes and it’s kinda like being a character in a show. Whatever light is put on me, you know, performing as an entertainer and artist, it’s like, it’s like, you’re not set in your ways, you just kind of express yourself and that’s what you become when that light is set on you…
So I thought the whole onyx thing was really, really cool, but then to have it in a show and to make it more general and to tie everything together-The Onyx Hotel- since I’m traveling so much and I’m always on the go and, you know, going I thought, you know, to call the show “The Onyx Hotel Show” there’s a lot of things that we can do to, you know, make it smaller ‘cause “The Onyx” just in itself is so broad, I think “The Onyx Hotel” kinda limits it a little, which is good, so it’s not all over the place.”

I love you, but SERIOUSLY Britney?!! The “hotel” motif was just an excuse to have people dance around in their underwear atop erotically furnished motel beds. Need evidence?

Nicki Minaj needs to be on every morning show every day.

Here were my two favorite moments from this video. Please to note her skeptical “How can these people not understand my need for a turkey leg" face in the second screencap.

"What does she want with a turkey leg?"

"Is that code for something?"

"Well, it’s code for chickens that are fried.

…or turkeys that are friiiiiieeeeeed!!!”

-Nicki Minaj
