Kanye West Says, ‘I Make Perfect Music’ At Revel Concert

He has a big ego. Such a huge ego. And we kind of love it. At Atlantic City’s Revel Hotel and Casino this weekend, Kanye West performed his first solo show since Coachella in 2011. During his set he told the crowd, “I make perfect music.” At least he followed it up by recognizing he’s a flawed human being. Performing for two nights, both sold-out (he talks like this ’cause he can back it up!), West performed “Way Too Cold,” “Mercy” with no guest appearances, “Runaway” joined by Pusha T, “New God Flow,” “All of the Lights,” and “In The Air” cover by Phil Collins. Yes, you heard that right. Yeezy showed off his novice vocal skills. Read more…

Kelly Clarkson Pays Tribute To Etta James In Concert, Covering “I’d Rather Go Blind”

Paying tribute to the late Etta James live in concert at New York’s Radio City Music Hall this weekend, Kelly Clarkson gave a beautiful performance of “I’d Rather Go Blind.” It was a poignant enough moment in the face of James’ tragic passing, but also given that 10 years ago Kelly sang “At Last,” for her first ever appearance on American Idol, which she went on to win, the performance was a rather weighty one. While most of the videos we tracked down of the performance were rather shaky (see above, which was the least shaky but unfortunately from a distance), the poor visual was negligible in light of Kelly’s spine tingling vocal. Even on fan-filmed, amateur film, there’s no mistaking the distinct power of Kelly’s voice as she sings the words of the great Etta James.
