The ultimate music wars of the 2010s has finally arrived!
The two main contenders are Drake, the Jewish-Canadian recently-re-bar-mitzvah’d rapper, and Chris Brown, America’s bad boy.

Everyone is talking about last night’s concert in Ramat Gan Stadium near Tel Aviv. Dynamic stage, people flying in the air, gigantic video screens, different costumes and crazy rhythm were a part of a show that Israelis don’t see that often.
Madonna began her show with “Girl Gone Wild” and moved to “Revolver” and “Gang Bang.” As the show progressed, critics argued that the 53-year-old idol was just focusing on put on her very own rendition of “Cirque du Soleil,” instead of, umm, singing. More ▸
