Watch St. Vincent Perform and Chat on ‘The Colbert Report’

Last night St. Vincent stopped by The Colbert Report for quite the chat as well as two bad ass performances. She’s a rock goddess, and Colbert is well aware of that. He gave her a lot of praise (calling her new record the “Top Rated self-titled album”) and got some good lines out of the newly […]

Paul McCartney is probably your favorite living Beatle (sorry, Ringo).

Jack White On The The Colbert Report
