Mon Laferte hit all of the notes during her appearance on NPR’s Tiny Desk (Home) Concert as she sang a set of four songs while rocking a wedding dress at a colonial-style church in Tepoztlán, Morelos, in Mexico.

Backed by a 10-person band that included a bassoon, a jarana, and an oboe, the Chilean singer performed tracks “Tu Falta de Querer,” “Por Qué Me Fui a Enamorar de Ti,” “Se Me Va a Quemar el Corazón,” and “Placer Hollywood.”

To kick off her performance, Laferte walked into the intimate church — wearing an all-white dress, boots, and her signature: a red flower tucked behind her ear — as she removed her veil and torch sang her biggest hit, “Tu Falta de Querer.”

For her second song, the “Mi Buen Amor” singer — who is expecting her first child with musician Joel Orta — made a silly reference to her baby bump as she changed the chorus’ lyric from “¿Por qué me fui a enamorar de ti?” (“Why did I fall in love with you?”) to “¿Por qué me fui a embarazarme de ti?” (“Why did I get pregnant from you”) as she let out a giggle.

The singer, whose album Seis is nominated for a 2022 Grammy Award in the regional Mexican music album category, then performed her La Arrolladora Banda el Limón song from the church’s altar as she was accompanied by tuba player Diana Gaby.

In true wedding fashion, Laferte’s Tiny Desk showcase ended with a dance party in front of the church as she wrapped “Placer Hollywood.” To end the show, she said, “It smells like baby bump here!” as she grabbed her belly.

“The concept of ‘Few Good Things’ is the realization of self after a search for exterior fulfillment,” said Saba“It is the satisfaction and completeness you gain by simply living a life that is yours. Few is a small number, but few is not lonely. In the face of all adversity, a few good things is recognizing and accepting blessings. Few is to count them, one by one – an empty glass is full of air, an empty bank is full of lessons., and an empty heart is full of memories. Few good things is to grow comfortable with the empty, and despite that, finding your fullness.”

Film director C.T. Robert adds, “As a storyteller, I’ve always been drawn to stories that attempt to identify what makes us who we are. The ones that ask questions like: ‘What does having everything you need really look like?’ ‘Is it sitting at a dinner table with your loved ones?’ ‘Is it waking up next to the woman you love?’ ‘Is it having cherished memories for all of those you care for, those still in the physical and those who passed on?’”

Tickets for the short film can be purchased here.

Elvis Costello Delivers Energetic Performance of ‘Farewell, OK’ on ‘Colbert’

Elvis Costello and the Imposters took to the stage on Friday’s episode of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to give a rousing performance of “Farewell, OK,” the lead track from the group’s latest album, The Boy Named If.

The song tells the story of a relationship gone off the rails, with one party wondering how things might have gone differently. “Ran my hand in the rhythm along the ballroom wall,” Costello sings. “Felt the rumble of the bass through the entrance hall/ And the door flung open to a mascara cry/ I can’t shake the sound of ‘How could you or why?’”

“Like a lot of good rock and roll songs this began with a drummer down in a basement and a singer howling outside the backdoor,” Costello said in a statement about the track. “It’s a blurred gaze, a drink too much, an accidental punch and a kiss goodnight all in the tumult of a dancehall.”

The My Aim is True rocker also surprised the audience with a rendition of his classic hit, “(What’s So Funny ‘Bout) Peace, Love, and Understanding.” The song, which appeared on Costello’s 1979 LP Armed Forces, was originally written by English singer-songwriter Nick Lowe.

The Boy Named If dropped earlier this month. In an interview about the album for Rolling Stone’s Last Word column, Costello shared what still attracts him to writing rock music after nearly five decades in the business.

“I don’t like much rock music. I like rock & roll,” the 67-year-old said. “I think if you lose the roll part, a lot of the fun goes out of it.”

Costello is set to hit the road this summer in support of The Boy Named If with a short UK tour. Most information about the shows can be found on Costello’s website.

Joseph Baena Dishes on Acting & Dad Arnold Schwarzenegger

Arnold Schwarzenegger was involved in a car crash on Friday, Jan. 21, his rep confirmed to NBC News.

Per TMZ, the former governor of California was driving his SUV in Los Angeles when he allegedly collided with a red Prius around 5 p.m. The outlet published photos of Schwarzenegger, 74, on the scene of a crash.

A spokesperson for the LAPD told E! News that officers responded to a four-vehicle crash on Sunset Blvd, after one vehicle “landed” on top of another. One woman was taken by ambulance to the hospital with “minor abrasions,” per the spokesperson, who added that her injuries are not life threatening.

Police did not confirm the identities of the people involved in the accident.

The actor’s rep told NBC News, “His main concern is for the woman from the other vehicle.”

E! News reached out to Schwarzenegger’s rep for comment but has not heard back. Per TMZ, Schwarzenegger is OK.

The Terminator star shares four children (Katherine, Patrick, Christopher and Christina) with ex Maria Shriver and son Joseph Baena with his former housekeeper, Mildred Patricia Baena.

Earlier this week, Joseph spoke on the Unwaxed podcast about his relationship with his dad. 

“I’m so close to my dad and we joke about everything,” he shared. “He always wants to hear about the drama. He’s like, ‘Tell me everything! Tell me the drama. Tell me about these girls.'”

But Joseph noted, “I also have to point out that with my relationship with my dad, it took a little while for me and him to get really close and just joke around with him and talk about anything.”
