Rockabilly sweetheart Nikki Lane pays homage to old school country in a new video for her song, "Gone, Gone, Gone."

GIRLS RUN THE WORLD! Beyonce, you are a beautiful Queen and I love watching you break it down in post apocalyptic dance offs, chanting girl power lyrics over Major Lazer's "Pon De Floor".
Beyonce, what more can I say? You're on a rearing black stallion in an all white suit. You're dancing in heels on sand. (A feat that I am sure is impossible, further convincing me that you are not in fact human, but some kind of amazonian deity of my dreams.)I love the way the ... Read More
