I listen to covers way more than I should. And I’ll admit, sometimes I feel like certain covers are better than the original… #sorrynotsorry. In no particular order, here are 5 covers I recommend you check out. Yes, these just so happen to be my favourites:
1. Ed Sheeran - Drunk in Love (Beyonce)
Is he aware of how angelic his voice is? He probably is. Yes, Bey is Queen and no one can ever outdo the Queen - I know, I know. But I’m okay with listening to this cover as an alternative ANY day: WATCH HERE
2. Arctic Monkeys - All My Loving (The Beatles)
Arctic Monkeys. Miles Kane. The Beatles. What more do you want here? WATCH HERE
3. One Direction - Teenage Dirtbag (Wheatus)
Good luck not getting this stuck in your head. Not to mention that Zayn Malik’s vocal range in this cover is DEADLY (let’s be real, they’re all amazing in this cover): WATCH HERE
4. Miley Cyrus - Jolene (Dolly Parton)
She’s already got the country voice. Natural pick. In my opinion, this is one of Miley’s best covers and will always be a fave: WATCH HERE
5. Foo Fighters - Tie Your Mother Down (Queen)
Oh c’mon, you knew it was coming. The Foos have done some pretty sweet covers: Baker Street, Stairway to Heaven, Tiny Dancer…the list goes on. But this Queen-Foos collab has to be my favourite cover OF ALL TIME. You’re really missing out if you haven’t seen this already. I’m not biased, I swear… WATCH HERE

Had a chance to check out the Carnivores Tour last night as apart of #NokiaAllAccess concerts. For those of you who aren’t aware of the tour, it consists of three bands: AFI, Thirty Seconds to Mars & Linkin Park.
I’m a fan of both AFI & Linkin Park - don’t get me wrong. I remember being really into AFI back in their Decemberunderground days (how can you forget about Miss Murder?). And Linkin Park….let’s take a moment to appreciate Mike Shinoda. Cause I feel like he’s underrated. Have ya heard his lyrics?
BUT HOLY MOLY Thirty Seconds to Mars COMPLETELY stole the show for me. Jared Leto knows how to work a crowd. He made everyone in that audience feel as though they were part of the show. Inviting fans up on stage, running ALL around the Air Canada Centre floors & snapping selfies with fans were just a few of the shenanigans that went down.
Between the gigantic beach balls appearing out of no where (for your reference: https://vine.co/v/MlB1ghPJ7j5), the massive amounts of confetti and Leto prancing around waving a huge Canadian flag, their entire set felt like a huge party.
The crowd seemed pretty amped to hear the band perform new hits such as “End of All Days” and “City of Angels.” My favourite part of their set was when Leto appeared on the mini stage in the centre of the venue, asking the audience: “What do you want me play? I’ll play anything you guys wanna hear.”
THE KILL. PLAY THE KILL, JARED. And that he did. And it was beautiful. Just like this gif:

I love award shows. And with the MTV VMAs just around the corner, I’m not entirely sure what to expect this year. But whatever it is, I know it will be extremely entertaining. Let’s take a quick trip down VMAs memory lane, shall we?
Remember that time Britney casually performed with a snake draped around her neck? Me too. LEGENDARY:
Or the time Gaga showed up on the red carpet in a dress made of RAW MEAT? Guuurrrl…
When Bey announced her pregnancy at the end of her “Love On Top” performance. Too adorable:
"I’mma let you finish but…" Nuff said:
Remember this performance? I KNOW you remember this performance:
And Diana Ross’ reaction to Lil Kim’s purple pasty. You may or may not need to Youtube this one:
Last but not least, WHO can forget last year’s Miley/ Robin Thicke performance. Aka the time Miley unleashed twerking to the world:
What performances are you looking forward to this year? I can’t wait to see 5SOS, T Swift and Maroon 5! And you know I won’t be moving when Nicki Minaj takes the stage. Drop me a note or send me a tweet and let’s talk!
