Sergio Says! Musings From Cosmo (and Beyond…)
Cosmopolitan editrix Joanna Coles is out on vacay, but lest you worry he’s bored and gallivanting in her absence, JoCo’s assistant extraordinaire, Sergio Kletnoy, has been busy dealing with a stressed-out back. Aww! At least there were also some awesome tunes, a JT concert, and a chill sesh with Little Boots…
You know what they say: when the cat is away, the mouse will play. THE BOSS is on a business trip in Milano and I took off from work to sleep longer and play louder. Well, not so much play, but rest up and see a chiropractor for this aching back that made me feel like a 90-year-old man for the last few weeks. Surely the slouching in front of the computer, late nights at concerts, and my all-over-the-place sleeping habits have nothing to do with my little problem. Be a dear and send flowers and get-well gifts to the Cosmo office next week; I could use a little cheer-me-up!
Pain or no pain, I still managed to see Justin Timberlake at Roseland, although I only lasted one hour due to the most uncool crowd I’ve ever been in a room with. They sang completely off key in unison and danced with no rhythm, definitely to the beats of their own drums. I just know one thing: whichever planet that crowd came from, I don’t ever want to visit again. I also got to hang out with Victoria Christina Hesketh, known to the world by her stage name Little Boots. Boots is a English (duh!) singer-songwriter, DJ, and musician. On her glorious sophomore album “Nocturnes,” she collaborated with hipster-gods Simian Mobile Disco and Hercules and Love Affair, plus paid homage to ’70s disco and ’90s house. It’s truly a must-have for any lovers of better-than-ice-cream-almost-as-good-as-sex pop music. I’ll be back and better than ever next week, until then follow me on Twitter at @SergioKletnoy and check out my fave new tunes I’m obsessed with right now:
“Live It Up“ by Jennifer Lopez and Pitbull
“#Beautiful“ by Mariah Carey and Miguel
“One Foot” by fun.
“The Next Day“ by David Bowie
“Mosquito“ by Yeah Yeah Yeahs
“Demons” by Imagine Dragons
“Master Hunter“ by Laura Marling
“Union“ by Rebecca and Fiona
