Perspective is not something one usually finds in young pop stars. But that’s one of the more refreshing and endearing aspects of the personality that is artist Skylar Renee. Indeed, certainly talent is there as well, in abundance as a matter of fact. Her debut single “Good As Gone” is a catchy pop nugget that tugs at the ear in the way many of the classic California created and inspired tunes of yesteryear, but with a sheen and bounce of the best of today’s finest pop. A little defiant, and definitely showing a self confidence, poise, and yes, perspective that is lacking in many of today’s star and fame-obsessed youth. Only nineteen years old, Skylar Renee was raised in the relaxing and laid-back environs of Malibu, California.

The Los Angeles Kings announced sweeping changes to their front office Monday, firing longtime general manager Dean Lombardi and head coach Darryl Sutter in the process.
Assistant general manager Rob Blake was promoted to GM while longtime Kings business executive Luc Robitaille was named team president.
The changes come after the Kings missed the playoffs for the second time in three years. They haven’t won a playoff round since winning the Stanley Cup in June 2014.
Lombardi was let go after 11 years at the helm. He built a team that won the Kings their first two Stanley Cups in franchise history, both with Sutter behind the bench.
“This was an extremely difficult decision and was made with an enormous amount of consideration for what we have accomplished in our past. But the present and future of our organization is the highest priority,” Dan Beckerman, president and CEO of the Kings’ parent company, AEG, said in a statement

Congress is expected to receive formal notification within weeks, setting in motion a deal with Nigeria that the Obama administration had planned to approve at the very end of Barack Obama’s presidency. The arrangement will call for Nigeria to purchase up to 12 Embraer A-29 Super Tucano aircraft with sophisticated targeting gear for nearly $600 million, one of the officials said
UFC light heavyweight Anthony Johnson is exploring legal options to address the controversy of last week’s UFC 210 weigh-in, according to his manager.
The controversy arose Friday when Johnson’s opponent, defending UFC champion Daniel Cormier, initially missed weight by 1.2 pounds in Buffalo.
Cormier, 38, stepped away from the weigh-in area, returned approximately 2½ minutes later and made the 205-pound championship weight.
Many observers noticed Cormier’s hands were on top of an outstretched towel during his second attempt, which could offset weight. Cormier has denied the towel had any effect.
