Steve Aoki Releases "Reimagined" Version of 'Unwell' Suitable For 2021!

It is doubtful when 'More Than You Think You Are' was released by Matchbox 20 in 2002, they knew the impact the single 'Unwell' would have on its fans. After the devastating year we had in 2020, where everyone was forced to become recluses and get stuck inside their own heads, the lyrics could not be more appropriate. If you did not feel a sense of alienation from all that was "real", there was tone deaf chip inside of you. What the world was going through was not normal. Wearing masks to the grocery store is not normal. Being unable to hug your loved ones is not normal. Not being able to leave your house due to a pandemic is not normal.

Steve Aoki seemingly saw the call for help and enlisted Kiiara for 'Used to Be,' a "re-imagined" take on 'Unwell,' which charted at number one on the Billboard charts in May 2003. Just last week, Rob Thomas and his band-mates in MB20 partnered with RADical Hope as their charitable partner. The experience revolves around Unwell and Rob had this to say: "What we're really talking about is the mental health of our future generations. Who we're going to be ten years from now depends on how we treat these people now." 

For the acoustic version of 'Used to Be,' Aoki called upon Thomas to join in. The two recorded their vocals apart but what Aoki did was magical. The song is a summation of what we have experienced over the past fourteen months and will continue to deal with for a little longer. If you already had mental health issues or dealt with them in the past, the pandemic undoubtedly was a trigger. Maybe this song can help you see you are not alone with the peaceful harmonies, call for help, and diary-esque lyrics.

A 'Jerseylicious' Split!

  photo courtesy of When you were on a semi-successful reality show, especially as one of the key players, and everyone watched your love story unfold, it only makes sense they will want to keep following you after the series has ended. Such has been the case for 'Jerseylicious' star, Tracy DiMarco , who always went head-to-head with Olivia Blois-Sharpe on the show based around the never-ending drama at the Jersey salon, The Gatsby. Eventually, DiMarco got her happily ever after when she married Corey Epstein in her dream wedding. She continued to pursue her passion, have three kids, develop a wildly successful podcast, and work on clothing and accessories.  But, when you are in the public eye, boasting 541K followers on Instagram , almost everything you do is up for scrutiny. Fans (and haters) began to notice a lack of presence when it came to her husband, Corey and questioned if their marriage was okay. There is an abundance of photos of daughters, Skylar and

'The Real L Word' Cast- Where Are They Now?

  photo courtesy of With the return of the hit Showtime series, 'The L Word,' it makes fans of the original show and ultimate reality spinoff, 'The Real L Word,' quite nostalgic. Actors can keep acting but reality stars can drift off into the clouds after their 15 minutes of fame are over. TRLW lasted three seasons with a revolving door of lesbians who soon became like friends and family. Initially based in California, the show followed the lives of a handful of gay women, somehow intertwined in life, and what it was like to date, fall in love, have sex, try to make babies, propose, be successful, and so much more. By the final season, the series went bi-coastal, utilizing NYC as a playground, as well. The show ended in 2012 with two weddings and a lot of tears. So, where are they now?
