Likely Looks: Little Boots - New In Town

Little Boots has the power to make people dance!!!!! From the homeless to the gangs, somehow her song "New In Town" just makes people automatically begin doing a choreographed dance mid whatever they were originally doing.

She looks amazing in this blue sequined dress, its fun and it screams Little Boots...

Check out the video here:

Likely Looks: Green Day - Know Your Enemy

Most of us music fans that are my age have grown up on Green Day and remember getting that copy of "Dookie" after hearing "Longview" on the radio...

To this day I still have a soft spot for the band and am really liking the single "Know Your Enemy". The video isn't brilliant but it fits its purpose

Here is the video:

Amy Winehouse To Write A Poetry Book

St. Lucia seems to have put Amy in a happy place, that's why she is currently penning a book of poetry while she is in the process of writing her third album.

"Amy's been stimulated since living in St Lucia." according to a source to the Daily Star. "She loves the chilled-out Caribbean atmosphere and has found it has encouraged her to write again."

Who was the influence behind the poetry book? Why, Mr. Pete Doherty of course.

Likely Looks: Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Heads Will Roll (Live On Jimmy Fallon)

So, obviously with the Yeah Yeah Yeahs having a new album out, "It's Blitz", along come the TV performances.

Unfortunately, I missed SNL but I did catch Jimmy Fallon and I have to say...borrrring. Karen O built herself up to be this exciting stage presence wherever her performed and now she just looks bored. Her dance moves don't even resemble what she once was on stage and the only touch of old Karen O I saw was her pulling the microphone cord slickly through her fingers and pulling it across her torso.

I love the album and I absolutely love this band...but I think Karen O needs to watch some old videos of herself because he new moves just aren't working

No Doubt Stands And Delivers

No Doubt is backwith their upcoming tour and a new song (well, a cover).

They've really got the best parts of the 80's on lockdown and just released a killer cover of Adam Ant's classic, "Stand And Deliver"

Have a listen and download it here:

No Doubt - Stand And Deliver

Likely Looks: Tori Amos - Welcome To England

So, I missed Tori Amos at SXSW...and I hate myself for it. Therefore, her new video for "Welcome To England" from her upcoming release "Abnormally Attracted To Sin", which comes out May 19th in the U.S. will just have to hold me over.

The scenery is stunning, Tori looks stunning and its just an absolutely beautiful video of Tori in almost a medieval setting.

I love it...and you should too.

Likely Looks: Phoenix "1901" Live On SNL

Blah blah blah its amazing Phoenix made it onto SNL considering what kind of bands they usually choose. That is all dead in the water...but their performance was AMAZING!

Hopefully they get a little more love as their new album "Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix" has been on repeat

Here is the performance...enjoy!:

Lindsay Lohan Joins Lily Allen On Stage

During Lily Allen's performance of "Womanizer" last night at the Wiltern, a special guest popped out to do some dancing and barely sing...Lindsay Lohan.

What the point of her coming on stage was? I don't know. Maybe you have a theory...
