Yesterday, I went to Ariana Grande’s Dangerous Woman Tour in Sacramento at the Golden 1 Center! It was an unforgettable experience. Opening guests were Victoria Monet and Little Mix. Little Mix is one of my all time favorite groups! They performed many of my favorites including Salute, Black Magic, Shoutout to my Ex, and their latest Touch!
Ariana Grande’s entire set was just amazing. She performed many of my favorites including Be Alright, Problem, Everyday, Love Me Harder, Side to Side, and so much more! She is definitely one of the most talented in the industry right now. Check out these photos below:

If you can’t wait until March 17th for “Beauty and the Beast” to release then you can listen to the full soundtrack now! It’s available for purchase on iTunes (regular edition or deluxe edition) and available for streaming on Apple Music and Spotify. You can also listen to the entire soundtrack on Disney Music’s VEVO channel on YouTube here.
I only listened to a couple tracks off of the soundtrack but so far what I’ve heard, it is absolutely beautiful! I am saving the rest until after I see the movie. The renditions of the familiar classic songs such as “Belle“, “Be Our Guest“, and “Gaston” are great. Emma Watson has a gorgeous voice, she is the perfect fit as Belle. I must say I love the Overture which is the opening track. Alan Menken is a Disney God! Another song I like is a new original “How Does a Moment Last Forever” by Celine Dion. There’s no words to describe it but simply beautiful. I am very excited to listen to the rest of the album.. I am a huge lover of movie music, especially scores! Watch my tweets when I do tweet about the rest of the soundtrack.
If you are huge lover of the music to the original Beauty and the Beast, I’m sure that this soundtrack will not disappoint! Now I’m REALLY ready for the movie now!
Also, if you haven’t seen Ariana Grande and John Legend’s music video for “Beauty and the Beast” which premiered on Freeform earlier this week, watch it down below. I think it is an absolute gorgeous modern rendition. The music video is visually stunning and we also get a glimpse of what the classic ballroom scene will look like.
What are your thoughts on the soundtrack and/or music video?

So many moments last night at the MTV Video Music Awards 2016! The show took place at Madison Square Garden in New York City. One of my favorite moments was of course.. Beyonce’s performance of a medley of her songs from the “Lemonade” album. I also LOVED Nick Jonas’ performance of “Bacon” featuring Ty Dolla $ign.. the performance was basically a recreation of the “Bacon” music video. Loved the little appearance from DNCE. Ariana Grande performs “Side to Side” with Nicki Minaj. I liked the theme of the performance, it was an overall workout theme which I thought was pretty unique. Another performance I loved was The Chainsmokers and Halsey performing “Closer”. I must say, it is great to see Halsey getting the recognition she deserves. To me, I feel she is very underrated. She is a beautiful and talented artist and will continue to be successful! Also, congratulations to Rihanna for receiving the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award. Drake’s speech was very sweet when he presented the award to her. Her performances were awesome too, I like how she broke them down by different types of genres. She opened the show with dance medleys such as “Don’t Stop the Music” and “Where Have You Been.” The second performance included Caribbean style hits such as “What’s My Name?” and her 2016 hit “Work.” Third performance consisted of R&B/Hip-Hop hits such as her latest “Needed Me” and “Pour it Up.” Last performance consisted of ballads such as “Stay” and “Diamonds.” For everything on the VMAs, click here to go to the MTV website.
