Bruce Springsteen is releasing an entire 1978 show with the E Street Band in Houston, Texas. The release will benefit the MusiCares Hurricane Relief Fund, which will aid those affected by the recent devastation in Texas as well as in Florida.
The Houston show originally appeared as part of the Darkness on the Edge of Town box set. It captures the final leg of the Darkness tour, including the extended intro version of “Prove It All Night,” the rarely performed “Streets of Fire,” and Darkness outtakes “Fire” and “Because the Night.” It also features prototypes of The River’s “Independence Day,” “Point Blank” and “The Ties That Bind,” plus a rare September song, “Santa Claus is Comin’ To Town.”
Houston was one of Bruce’s earliest springboards, which accounts for the presence here of early favorites “Fire” and “Saint in the City.”

Get excited, beauty lovers. Sephora is having a drop-everything-right-now-because-you-can’t-afford-to-miss-this sale with some of the best products marked down at up to 50 percent off. Yeah, we know. This is rare. That’s why things are already starting to sell out. The online-only event has a limited quantity of each of the items. So once they are gone, that’s it—the deal is over.
But it’s definitely worth taking a break from whatever you’re up to because the sale includes some of the goodies that we’ve been eying. Luxury skin-care tools—like the Clarisonic and the Tria »

Normally a packed Italian restaurant and bar in the East Village of New York City, San Marzano has been transformed into Lola’s D’s Café (more on that name change in a bit), a less busy café run by Denise (Gabourey Sidibe) and Nate (Derrick Baskin), where Billy Epstein (Billy Eichner) works on Difficult People. During Et’s visit to the set of the Hulu comedy, which just so happens to be a day they’re filming scenes from the season three finale, things are noticeably different.
For one thing, there’s that name. Normally called D’s Café, the place has been taken over by Lola, an outspoken transgender waitress played by the bitingly funny Shakina Nayfack. “Lola saved us from Sephora,” Denise explains to the staff -- Billy, Lola, Denise, Nate and Matthew (Cole Escola), who has triumphantly returned from a Supermarket Sweep-turned-Scientology fiasco -- gathered around a table. But there’s »

In a candid interview last October with recovery website, TheFix.com, Von D expressed her reasons for being transparent about her sobriety.
"Personally, being sober means that I operate better and I function better; I believe I am meant to be that way. Although I’m just returning to where I’m supposed to be, it remains important to me," she confessed. "I am quite vocal about it, not for the praise or to get a cake, but it’s basically to be of service. If anybody out there feels that they relate to me in any capacity and happen to be struggling, perhaps I can lead »
Kat Von D is celebrating a milestone.
The tattoo artist, 35, took to Instagram on Friday to commemorate a special anniversary. “Today I celebrate 10 years of sobriety,” she wrote, along with a black heart emoji.
Von D has been open about her previous struggle with substance abuse, telling an L.A. radio show in 2016 that people make mistakes but can always redeem themselves when talking of former boyfriend Jessie James.
“I am a believer that we’re all human and we’re all capable of making mistakes,” she said. “I think if I were to be crucified for my drug addiction three years ago now, »

Earlier this week, makeup giant Nars announced its decision to sell their products in China — a move that would force them, by law, to test their products on animals. For the formerly cruelty-free brand, the announcement sparked major conversation among loyal customers and fans. And now, beauty industry pros — including makeup guru Kat Von D — are all voicing their concerns.
“I don’t normally post graphic images on my Instagram, but due to the terrible news we all got this week when @narsissist announced they’ve decided to start testing their cosmetics on animals, it wouldn’t feel right not to say Something, »
Makeup vlogger Jeffree Star is known for causing controversy on social media with Twitter feuds versus ex-bff Kat Von D, offensive comments and even with some products in his eponymous line getting delivered to fans with pieces of hair inside.

Recently, a series of videos from 12 years ago resurfaced, showing Star, then 19, saying some offensive racist comments that had many of his fans (and haters) in an uproar. But instead of jumping to defend himself, »

Who Tried It: Kaitlyn Frey, Style & Beauty Assistant
Why We Tried It: I like to wear a full face of makeup on the daily (not because I’m self-conscious, but because I just love playing with product), so I’m always on the hunt for a setting spray that will allow my hard work to withstand sweaty subway rides, end-of-day gym sessions and happy hour with friends. I also faced a dilemma: my foundation almost always transfers onto my boyfriend’s J.Crew polos and Charles Tyrwhitt button-ups when I lean my head on his shoulder, and (needless to say) he’s Over It. »
