Young love! Jaden Smith cuddles and kisses girlfriend Sarah Snyder's neck as the two make a grocery run

There is nothing quite like young love.

And Jaden Smith looks to be in the throes as he was spotted canoodling with his model girlfriend Sarah Snyder on Monday.

The son of Will and Jada Pinkett Smith carried off an effortlessly stylish outfit wearing a black shirt, dressed with a long gold pendant, skinny jeans zipped at the bottom and black sneakers. 

His brown locks were tied up in his signature messy bun as his maroon hat - which comes from his MSFTSrep line - hung off his jeans.

21-year-old Sarah Snyder also showcased her unique fashion sense in a casual, grey Thrasher magazine hoodie, which she paired with light grey sweatpants that appeared to be worn inside-out, black trainers and a silver chain necklace.

Her sandy blonde hair was neatly tied back in multiple braids - which her Instagram fans accused her of cultural appropriation.

"Complexity" is rooted in Hughes and Homme fondness for classic rock & roll, and is powered by a backbeat hip-shaking and the persistent rumble of a piano. The track also has a lot of blown-out guitars and charmingly awkward lyrics about not taking rock music - or whatever - so seriously.

The single also comes with scandalous work in which Homme and Hughes are dressed as members of the crew of Star Trek clueless, wearing uniforms with a patch devil horn instead of the Starfleet insignia.

Eagles of Death Metal have yet to announce a release date for the zipper down. The LP marks the first since 2008 Heart of the band. Eagles of Death Metal are currently on tour in Europe, with plans to return to North America for a handful of dates from the end of August.

Despite the long delay between Eagles of Death Metal albums, both Hughes and Homme they have remained busy with the release of former Honkey Kong in 2011, a solo album under the name of Boots Electric.

The Eagles Rocked Perth Arena With Sold Out Show

Quiet please ... Eagles gathered for a memorable performance.

Welcome to the Hotel California: Please save their mobile phones and dare to experience life through their own eyes rather than through a screen.

That was the simple request, sobering US rockers the Eagles as they began the Australian leg of their world tour retrospective at Perth Arena on Wednesday night in front of a sellout.

And while most of the loyal legion of fans were quite happy to do so, it seems that there were more than a few who just could not bear to be separated from their electronic devices during three hours of instrumental expertly played and heavenly harmonies.

But despite texting with whom he replaced, long conversations and strong arguments, the founders of the six times winning band Grammy Award, Glenn Frey and Don Henley, members managed to make the venue 15000 capacity feels as one of its intimate studio sessions in 1971 - the year that were formed.

Perched on a couple of amps and guitars surrounded by the simple scenario, the pair eased the audience with acoustic Night before starting to assemble the rest of the group one by one.

Original Eagle Bernie Leadon, who resigned in 1975, walked on stage to train leaves here this morning, before Timothy B. Schmit did for Peaceful Easy Feeling and Joe Walsh for Witchy Woman with a new arrangement.

Capture sincere, deep in his documentary of the same name spirit, history of the Eagles given the best of the band's back catalog with corol├│gica end and was dotted with stories and videos about the trip.

To Doolin-Dalton, the curtain rose, revealing the full musical cohort and giant screens carving Already Gone, Best of my love, Lyin 'Eyes, one of these nights and take the limit follow to complete the first half of the series.

Keep it classy with a brief interval, the Eagles regrouped to songs including New Kid in Town, love will keep us alive and Heartache Tonight.

Richly layered guitars (special mention goes to the additional guitarist Steuart Smith) and perfect harmonies were nothing less than stunning and a real treat for fans.

While Frey sent the MC duties for the most part, was peculiar Walsh, in particular, never missed a chance to shine on stage with his amazing skill and songs in the city and life has been good.

At one point, put a camera head to capture the crowd and proudly declared "I spent one week (in Perth) one night!"

Closer to life in the fast lane was generously followed by two encores - the first featuring the California Hotel and second Take It Easy, Walsh Rocky Mountain Way favorite and Desperado.

As the Eagles took their final bow at night, the crowd stood cheering and fist pumping in a show of immense satisfaction.

Timothy B. Schmit, who left little to join the Eagles in 1977, will meet with former band when they are inducted into the Hall of Fame of Colorado at Denver Paramount Theater on January 9.

"Tim has been an artist full of grace for decades," said Colorado Music Hall of Fame President Chuck Morris in a statement (via Reverb). "And I am delighted that he will be part of our program and help make history in front of music fans of Colorado."

Schmit joined shortly after the release of his debut in 1969 "Pickin 'Up the Pieces", replacing original bassist Randy Meisner which, coincidentally, resigned to help train the Eagles. Although associated with country-rock scene in LA, pedal steel guitarist Rusty Young and drummer George Grantham hail of Denver, and the rest of the band followed to Colorado in 1971.

Top 10 Lehigh Valley Concerts Of 2014: Tom Petty, Eagles, Keith Urban, The Killers And More

When it comes to the stories of the year in music in the Lehigh Valley, actually is one.

The buzz of the new $ 177 million arena downtown Allentown drowned everything else through the calendar year - starting with speculation of what acts reserves, the enthusiasm with the announcement of the Eagles as the first show, and even uproar when both Rascal Flatts and Cher canceled.

When the show opened Eagles local September 12, which was more than a concert - it was an event. It was definitely an uplifting evening for Allentown, not only for music but also because of the excitement. The capacity crowd was electric.

Of course, there were other great stories they did not focus on the Seventh and Hamilton streets. The headquarters SteelStage home of Bethlehem Musikfest festival had its second best attendance ever - probably the result of its strong alignment. Tribune The Great Allentown Fair had a year of attendance down, but the quality of their performances was high: Two of the shows that our Top 10 of the year is done.

Sands Bethlehem Event Center had perhaps the biggest in three years, The Killers name and a year of concerts of high quality.

But opening PPL Center, with artists like Neil Diamond and Nickelback to come, changed the paradigm for concerts in the Lehigh Valley.

I saw more than 100 concerts in Lehigh and Northampton County locations this year. Here were my favorites.

1. Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, PPL Center, September 16

the Eagles was the perfect show to open PPL Center Allentown. But Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers was the perfect act for second event of the arena. Or anything beyond that.

While the Eagles played a set that was pleasantly accurate restoration of all their hits, Petty played a more raucous spectacle that often shook, not relieved, the crowd nearly exhausted.

Petty and the Heartbreakers six men tore through an 18-song, an hour and 45 minutes long, with an intensity that sometimes took them outside the lines. It was for the sake of change songs, but in a way that suggests confidence he knew, playing with abandon, were good enough to challenge the comfort of the songs.

2. The Eagles, PPL Center, September 12

ultimately, the Eagles could have been the perfect opening act for shiny new PPL Center of Allentown.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame group - was once a powerful force in music that sold 60 million albums in the 1970s and became the third best-selling band of all time - was on tour after only one studio album in 35 years.

That put the band in the same situation as Allentown - a city that is decades away from their glory years and is seeking to reassert itself.

Both were quite impressive in the first event of the sand.

The concert lasted for 21/2 hours at 20 minute intermission. When the full band playing the hits came, the Eagles were really impressive.

3. Keith Urban, Musikfest, August 10

Bethlehem Musikfest this year was blessed with an almost perfect climate concert, with cool summer nights. But on the last night of the festival headliner Keith Urban heats things up with a very entertaining night of summer songs that were hot but as windy as the night air blowing through the sand Steel Stage.

Playing to a full house of more than 6600 (only sellout Festival 10 days), Urban was lively and energetic through a show that included 24 songs in just over two hours.

He sank deep into his pit 15 # 1 hits (he played 13 of them). The music swirled and heated to songs with wild, fiery guitar solos prolonged. "Night amazing! Thank Bethlehem," he told the crowd. And so it was.

4. The Killers, Sands Bethlehem Event Center, May 15

Three songs in the concert of The Killers at Sands Bethlehem Event Center, it was clear that something special was happening.

The band was open - open - the show with a boost, barreling one of his greatest hits release, the successful alternative No. January 2006 "When You Were Young" in the auditorium yet fully illuminated.

This was a band on top of their game. And on a good night, to boot.

With an 18-song, 90-minute show, and the murderers got Sands Bethlehem Event Center's second birthday party setting - perhaps the best show of the place has seen.

Almost every song was great, and performs impressively. And concert in such a small room - The Killers normally play places four times the size of the event center - the energy and intensity of the music was just that much more.

5. Lady Antebellum, Allentown Fair, August 28

A day after grandstand crowd of the Great Fair Allentown saw a musical act, Motley Crue, disappointingly limp away on his farewell tour, he was a musical act at the peak of his prowess in an almost perfect show: Lady Antebellum.

Since opening - his recent single "Compass" beginning with a muffled drum, tinkling mandolin and singer warm, rich voice of Hillary Scott - which was an almost perfect night for country music trio.

In a show of 85 minutes covering 20 songs, including Lady Antebellum each of his 14 Top 10 songs, although some in abbreviated form. That meant that the whole show was full of good songs.

6. John Fogerty, Sands Bethlehem Event Center, July 18

The former Creedence Clearwater Revival frontman / guitarist / songwriter John Fogerty played many of the same successes of Creedence Clearwater Revisited, the lineage band had played 18 months earlier.

The difference was that in the hands of Fogerty, songs occasionally changed and played with unbridled intensity that made a moot point accuracy.

In a game that lasted less than two hours, Fogerty played only five songs from his solo career, which now extends to 40 years - literally 10 times tenure CCR. But, like the way Bob Dylan plays his own expansive catalog, Fogerty apparently considers that the songs and the living entities, and plays them as if they are fresh, not relics.

7. Jackson Browne, State Theatre, Easton, August 9

Even when the singer Jackson Browne was young, his songs take a deep melancholy; kind words someone exploring the soul. Therefore, it should be no surprise that now, almost 66 and playing a solo exhibition spanning career at the State Theatre in Easton, plagued Brown would have a set of those songs.

And he did. And with the added element of age - both yours and the capacity crowd - those songs cut deep into a show that included 25 songs in two sets totaling nearly 21/2 hours (30 minutes in the middle).

Browne's voice is very well preserved. Their voices were mostly midrange largely as strong as they did in their best records of more than 30 years, with a weariness of the wise world added.

The show could have been even better: Jackson did not play many of his biggest hits.

8. Tegan and Sara, Levitt Pavilion SteelStacks, Bethlehem, June 23

There was more than a little dismayed when Canadian twin sister duo Tegan and Sara released their latest album, "heartthrob", a year ago. The concern was that his 80 synth-heavy 'new-wave environment was too much of a change in their sound indie pop.

Excellent show the couple in the Levitt Pavilion SteelStacks in Bethlehem, the second in a series of summer concerts paid back in place, allay these concerns.

The 21-song, 90-minute set showed that not only the new songs represent Tegan and Sara at its best, but not too different from previous material better partner.

9. Judas Priest and Steel Panther, PPL Center, October 15

basically, what makes heavy metal music so successful - and lasting - is its simplicity: three chords on guitar slashing, aggressive vocals and basic themes. Despite its reputation double intricate guitar attack and operatic vocals, British metal gods Judas Priest has the basic right to third concert of PPL Center.

In a 16-song, 90-minute show, and the band played a lot of these signature elements of showmanship - frontman / singer Rob Halford changed clothes, jackets or at least eight times. But were the fundamentals that made the show. The game spread by the band's career, extending over 40 years.

Opener Steel Panther was laughing loud funny - not only for his brilliant offensive songs, but for its between-song patter was equally offensive.

10. Hunter Hayes, Allentown Fair, August 30

during most of the last decade, country music aimed at young listeners it was neither good nor really country, and even worse when performed live.

Hunter Hayes change that. He is a talented singer and musician whose even better live entertainment, rather than being silly extravagances overexcited, they are real experiences of energetic concerts. And his music is really country.

Hayes played an 18-song show hour and 40 minutes. From the opening title track from his new album "Argument", he jumped around the stage, taking a walk on a catwalk or jump from one monitor. It was, dare we say, Springsteen-esque in its energy.

Honorable Mentions: Flogging Molly, Sands Bethlehem Event Center, November 29; Drive By Truckers, Musikfest Cafe, October 22; Avett Brothers, Musikfest, August 7; Wynonna, Sands Bethlehem Event Center, June 28.
