WEST COAST SPOILERS: We have Beyonceheavily bleeped Drunk in Love for alla y’all. Oh, and her hubby JayZ showed up. Surfbort.

Holy shit. Lorde’s raw and stripped-down performance of ‘‘Royals’ is KILLING ME. Remember–she’s SEVENTEEN YEARS OLD. I love her jerky-spazzy moves. And her black nails FINGERTIPS? Badass.

Macklemore On The Cover Of Rolling Stone Magazine!



I squealed like a schoolgirl when I saw OUR SEATTLE BOY, Ben Haggerty on the cover of the Rolling Stone, which hits stands this Friday. In the article, he addresses his past struggles with addiction and the possibility of being considered a novelty act with the hit ‘Thrift Shop’ (which ain’t gonna happen):



“Haggerty, a recovering alcoholic and drug addict, says that at one point he was so worried about being trivialized as “the ‘Thrift Shop’ guy” that his sobriety was at risk: “I went through a place of not being happy, getting put in the box of ‘This is a novelty rap song,’ and being like, ‘What did I sign up for’?” But the success of the pro-gay-rights track “Same Love” helped him relax. “The legacy that I’m leaving on the world is more than just a song about second-hand clothes,” he says.”


After catching my breath about Ben on the cover, I was all, “so where’s Ryan Lewis, for eff’s sake?Ryan was given the opportunity to discuss the issue of being in the background to some of the fans around the world (NOT AROUND THESE PARTS, LOVE!):

“I think on the mainstream level, nobody knows what the fuck I am. Am I the DJ? Do I make the beats? Do I rap? Am I singing on tracks? I don’t think a lot of people know except real fans who have been around. I mean, you guys, Rolling Stone, don’t want to put me on the cover. It’s like, you’re going to sell more copies with Ben’s face. Why is that? Because the general public, based on the way this whole thing’s been marketed . . . are going to be more receptive to ‘Macklemore.’ The public don’t care how the song came together. And I can’t change that. So if I have jealousy, deriving from that, then that’s just stupid.”

Don’t worry, Boo. We all know you’re talented, an integral part of MACKLEMORE, model-hot and you are NOT invisible. Unf. So don’t even worry, Sugar.


Macklemore is set to tour this fall, and tickets are selling right OUT, including a THREE-NIGHT STAND in Seattle at Key Arena.

And so we put our hands UP…” CONGRATS on the Rolling Stone cover, y’all!!


Macklemore and Ryan Lewis Film Video For ‘White Walls’ At Dick’s On Broadway In Seattle

It’s being called “MACKLEMOB”! Seattle rap-heroes, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis caused a hot mess of a crowd in the BEST WAY at our beloved Dick’s Drive-In on Broadway (“…my posse’s been on BROADWAY; and we did it our way”in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Seattle last night.  It looked like one big awesome party, too.

Crowds on rooftops cheering on local heroes, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis

Let me just tell you about Dick’s burgers. Even with my “stomach issues”, nothing is better when you’re starving and want something good, hot and fast. (Okay, back in the day, it was the ONLY THING that would do after a sweaty night of debauchery and dancing at Neighbours just down the street, but that’s another story.)

Sure, it’s a little sketch in that parking lot, but that’s part of the charm of ramming a Dick’s Double Deluxe (and spilling fries that you’ll find in six months underneath the passenger seat) and a chocolate shake. See, I used to eat TWO in one sitting of these hot, gooey things, but my belly now tells me NO–and I’m a wise girl to listen up.

Dick's Double Deluxe...Holy LORD. I need one now.

I’m gonna say again just how much I LOVE Macklemore and Ryan Lewis for how much and how OFTEN they speak and show their loyalty toward their hometown. SEATTLE, BITCHES!!

“Macklemore and Ryan Lewis perform for a video shoot on Wednesday, July 24, 2013, on the roof of Dick’s Drive-In in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood. Macklemore and Ryan Lewis were working with a crew to shoot a video for their song “White Walls.” Thousands of people showed up for the video shoot on the roof of the iconic burger joint after word of the shoot was leaked onto social media earlier in the day. The shoot was delayed because of the large crowd that showed up on Broadway Avenue.”


Seriously. We. Love. Macklemore. So. Hard. I wish I had been there for this awesomeness.
