Anyone who went to see Bjork on Friday..did the Science Center open up early for ticketholders so you can roam around the Science Center? If so that is a nice added perk. Also how was the show? How did the seating verse standing work...anything to add?

Yikes. Bjork has alien feet!

lulz at white kids in williamsburg calling jay-z a bitch

Shut this white bitch up. Talking about books and whatnot.

i'm sorta shocked there has been no coverage of the bjork show yet

Posted by Anonymous | February 6, 2012 3:37 PM

Actually I'm a black dude that lives in The Queens Bridge housing projects, and yes Jay-Z is a little bitch.

337 is more full of shit than my ass after last night.

I guess Jay Z found his saturation point. $1250 a ticket apparently is too much, even for rich UES/UWS kids and Wall Streeters.

Whether or not 3:37 is who he says he is, or is from where he says he's from, I actually agree with him.
Overrated rapper. His biggest talents are marketing and business, not rapping.

439 the dude wasn't talking about him being a bad rapper. he was talking about him being a bitch.


drake is a bitch and he flows like silk bebe

I hear MIA is showing up at Jay-Z tonight. She is giving the finger, then walking the fuck out.

I wish Bjork would do the Super Bowl.

Posted by Anonymous | February 6, 2012 6:05 PM

4:55 - Good point; I stand corrected. Jay Z is not a bitch. Just an overrated rapper.

Posted by Anonymous | February 6, 2012 7:01 PM

Bjork's a shithead.

701 is Nas underrated? Because he was there tonight as well, rapping onstage alongside Jay-Z.

Posted by Anonymous | February 7, 2012 12:03 AM

fact: Nas/Queens > Jay-Z/Brooklyn

Posted by Anonymous | February 7, 2012 12:59 AM

Fact #2 Lebanon/Hummus > American/Corn dogs

Bjork show was awesome last night..Acoustics were great and getting into the science center to roam around before the show was a good time. Show in the round was great and she played to each side multiple times. There was a 20 person chior and some other assorted wacky instruments.

Setlist included Isobel and You've Been Flirting Again last night...

Jay Z is in fact a bitch
If you don't think so, prove that I'm wrong

Posted by Anonymous | February 7, 2012 8:09 AM

what exactly makes jay z a bitch, but more importantly, what makes you such an authority on that? just curious.

Posted by Anonymous | February 7, 2012 8:25 AM

So I guess that you got nothing, NOTHING, to disprove the fact that he is a bitch then, huh, amirite?

Posted by Anonymous | February 7, 2012 8:45 AM

He's an uber rich little Occupy bitch.

Posted by Anonymous | February 7, 2012 9:01 AM

12:03 - No... in fact, Nas is 10x better of a rapper than Jay.

Posted by Anonymous | February 7, 2012 9:19 AM

How come Beyonce's baby looks more like Nas than Jay Z?

Posted by Anonymous | February 7, 2012 10:00 AM

Jay Z is so ugly ... when he was born the doctor took one look at him, and slapped his mom.
