Bright LIGHTS in Big Cities

Canadian beauty, Lights, (born Valerie Anne Poxleitne) took time out from her non-stop touring to sit down with us and answer some questions – but these weren’t just any questions, we took to Twitter to ask fans what they wanted her to talk about. The response was overwhelming.

However, when sitting down with the 25-year-old electro-pop star, Lights seemed the furthest from overwhelmed. There had already been a plethora of fans lined outside New York City's Irving Plaza – some whom had even started chanting “Lights” over and over, knowing the show was still five hours away. Lights’ response to the madness? “I love my fans, they’re some of the most dedicated people out there.” Judging from the hundreds of questions that plagued Twitter, it's safe to say they love her too. Below are just a handful of the different ones that poured in.

New Album: Beyonce - '4'

Rocking wild blonde locks again, Beyoncé emerges with a wistful tone in her fourth album, 4, released June 28. Within a few minutes of hearing the first tracks on the album, fans will detect a noticeable change in momentum from Beyoncé's last album. 4 is very much a ballad-filled album overflowing with sentimentality and a heavy sense of self-induced maturity.

While I Am… Sasha Fierce also showcased a mature sound, it featured both firm ballads and a handful of up-tempo chart hits that possessed as much emotion as they did spunk. That spunk is what gave Beyoncé that “diva” moniker in the first place. This album, spunk muted, falls somewhat flat in both of these regards.
