Upcoming Interview & Performances
Yahoo Music's Lyndsey Parker has a new interview with Kris coming out... "soon." Our favorite four letter word in this case translates to September. According to this tweet from Lyndsey:
Kris also tweet-teased us about performing some new mash-ups for Yahoo:
It turns out Kris performed 4 songs which will also be posted "one a week! 4 total" per this tweet from Lyndsey. Lots to look forward to there, folks!
