This can't be a good start for this lady!

We're still feeling the love from our party!!
Grateful really doesn't even begin to explain it.
We want to extend a very big thank you to all of them, including Jennifer Hudson, Kelly Rowland, Taylor Swift, Florence Welch, The Saturdays, Usher, Kerli, Fantasia, Darren Criss, Matisyahu, Kacey Musgraves, Jewel, Kristin Chenoweth, and all the others who took the time out of their busy shedzules to send us good vibes on our 35th!
You made our night so very bright! THANK YOU!!
Happy Spark Seeker release day Matisyahu-yearners!
The alt-rock musician with a reggae-rap twist dropped by recently and graced us with some intimate, acoustic performances of his spankin' new tracks!
We are such lucky ducks to be able to present you this beautiful, bare-bones rendition of Live Like A Warrior, off of Spark Seeker (above)!
We've always adored Matisyahu's thoughtful and spiritual lyrics, and Live Like A Warrior is no exception to his humanistic, musical library!
Matisyahu has decided to take a new spiritual journey.
To kick things off, he's leaving a piece of his past identity behind.
By shaving his beard!
As a Hasidic Jew, his beard was easily his most identifiable trait. The long beard is traditionally part of Orthodox Judaism.
The pictures were first revealed on Twitter. He tweeted the message:
At the break of day I look for you at sunrise When the tide comes in I lose my disguise
Following the message, he posted the two pictures above.
Hours later, he posted the following message on his website clarifying his tweet:
This is a pure pop gem, but he's a rapper.
And it's a song about Hanukkah, but you don't need to be Jewish to enjoy it.
If you've made it this far, check out the awesomeness that is Matisyahu's Miracle (above).
This is gonna be a huge radio hit!
Matisyahu's latest, One Day, is one of those songs you know will have everyone singing along in their cars. It is pleasing on the ears, uplifting and extremely commercial.
The track features Akon, whom we wouldn't call ourselves a fan of but we sure like listening to him on songs.
Our only critique with Matisyahu's One Day is that it sounds A LOT like Alicia Keys' No One. But, hey, steal from the best, right? That song was a hit and so will this one!
