Here’s a present for you Little Monsters and Fighters. Click the link below to listen to the brand spankin’ new studio version of Gaga’s Do What U Want with Legendtina herself. YASSS! Happy NY B*tches!
It’s obvious , the divas dominated the charts, the airwaves and the awards shows. And they sure made some hella noise. Still, healthy competition came from their male counterparts. Justin Timberlake brought his sexy back back for his two, yes 2, albums: The 20/20 Experience 1 & 2. I really dig his signature Pop/RNB sound and you think by now he and Timbaland would’ve run out of ideas. Plus those ballads, you can never go wrong with a JT love song. *swoon* You also can’t overlook (they’re everywhere!) the mega success of One Direction whose Midnight Memories topped the Billboard 200, gave them the record for the only group to have their first 3 albums debut at no. 1. For me they’re eye-candy so let them do what they want but seriously the tattoos have got to stop (ehem Harry). At least Liam still looks clean for the most part. Even the rap gods bowed down: Jay Z, who officially removed the “-” from his name (uhm, okay), still leads the pack with Magna Carta… Holy Grail. Late this year, Eminem released part 2 of his breakout The Marshall Mathers LP. And of course, Yeezus, which he refers to as his god name. Like really? ugh so over him. Yeah, I’m talking about you Kanye.
2013 was literally a pop female explosion. Let’s just say it, ratchet as everything she does right now. Miley is the blockbuster hit. I love all the pop albums that came out but damn, Bangerz is my jam yo!! Didn’t know Southern Pop/Hip-hop got it goin’ on. And THAT kitty is so cute. Since we’re in the topic let’s move on to Katy Perry. Prism presented her in a different light. Light as in bright and as in feather. Like a breath of fresh air and you can tell she’s in a good place. The songs came from a good place. Newcomer Lorde making waves with Royals and recently, Team. She’s the ultimate outsider and we relate to her because of it. Don’t forget earlier this year, Disney Alums Demi Lovato and the now solo, Selena Gomez both shined with their respective releases. Demi was an emotional piece, showcasing her vulnerability and vocal strength. I’d like to think she’s the Christina from Selena’s Britney. Stars Dance was a dance fest. Fun and sexy. Yeah, you should try watching the Come and Get It video, whut. My personal fave, Sara Bareilles, also came out with the power anthem, Brave off The Blessed Unrest. Happy for her Album of the Year Grammy nomination! Speaking of award shows, Taylor Swift is still reaping the rewards from last year’s Red. That record is awesome. For months Lady Gaga teased us with her ARTPOP. It even came with an app. So when she said she lives for the Applause then I’m more than willing to give it. Paws up, monsters! The record’s unconventional. I mean it’s still mostly electro dance music but I don’t know, maybe that’s what happens when you infuse Pop with Art. LOL, I’m talking shit am I? Can I just say something about that Gaga-Xtina performance of Do What U Want on The Voice Finale? I GAGGED. I LIVE for this kind of thing.
Capping off the year, It’s-Britney-Bitch Spears gives us her most personal record. They say that all the time, how personal can you get? Kidding. The first single Work Bitch brought us back the Dance-ney we always loved. So we held hands in tears, in awe as she gyrated to her British accent. But just like that we were caught unguarded. We were not prepared.
QUEEN Bey rendered all them artists irrelevant by dropping
a bomb an album out of nowhere. Sure we heard she’s recording but with no single close to year end we all thought we were safe from the onslaught. But we’re not, no one is and we all just died from Beyonce realnezz. This bitch had enough time from her Mrs. Carter World Tour to even conceptualize, shoot music videos for all the tracks. Well she did it on B’Day so she can do it again. So there it goes, who run the world? Anyone dare say the contrary?
This may be old news but I just realized we’re gonna be expecting more new music this 2011. Since last year’s announcement on the VMAs, Lady Gaga has been since dropping news about her new album ‘Born This Way’. She tweeted: “THE SONG 2 13 11 THE RECORD 5 23 11” alongside the pic above. I don’t know if I consider myself one of her little monsters but I’m definitely a fan and I will grab that record when it hits the stores. I’m excited to listen on the new single as well, she’s unpredictable and I like the sentiment of that phrase: Born this way…
Telephone has premiered today on E!. This video marking the 2nd collaboration between GaGa and B has been much-anticipated and talked about.
More like a short film (it’s over 9 minutes long), it didn’t relate to the song once again kind of what happened to Paparazzi which coincidentally is where the story picked up. I immediately loved this track upon hearing The Fame Monster and its supposed to be a fun song – about dancing and stuff but instead she turned it into one of her creepy, twisted creations. Beyonce a.k.a. “Honey B” was also just as weird. There where funny parts though, I did laugh on the line saying: “You know what they say, once you kill the cow, you’ve got to make a burger.” And I know we’re talking about GaGa here but the wardrobe, man! There’s really nothing much.
In a nutshell, I didn’t like it. Still think the song is awesome! And oh, you can watch the video here. 🙂
Lady GaGa – Bad Romance
Ashley Tisdale – Crank It Up
Kesha – Tik Tok
Beyonce feat. Lady GaGa – Video Phone (Extended Remix)
VMA ratings higher than 17% this year; the highest in 5 years, thanks to Mr. West.
But no thanks.
Kanye’s ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) triggered once again and what’s silly is that he wasn’t even nominated for that category and yet he still had something to say. I understand if he has qualms on not winning but damn that was Best Female Video for crying out loud! I’m sure you’ve heard about him taking Taylor’s winning moment when he interrupted during her speech. It even brought about several jokes on the net. It was funny btw. I remembered Beyonce’s shocked reaction, she was like: “Oh, Kanye!” It was really nice when she let Taylor have her moment again when the former won for Video of the Year (well-deserved!). Although some were saying these were all staged, I doubt it. Kanye’s a douchebag even in real life, wait a jerk too and an asshole.
Another crazy thing that happened that night was Lady GaGa. I don’t know what to do with her anymore, I know she’s a self-confessed attention whore but what the hell were she wearing!!! Ugh, I mean I love her and her music but… when she does things like that. Tsk, I’m just glad she won for Best New Artist. As well as Britney’s Womanizer for Best Pop Video, kind of stupid she wasn’t nominated for the Female category.
All in all, the VMAs was such a blast once again. Janet’s performace was amazing I wish she had lengthen it. Madonna’s tribute speech for MJ was surprisingly good, for a moment I thought she will make it all about her. I wished B performed another song, as much as I loved Single Ladies but that was like so last year already! And I didn’t like the changes she made either. As with GaGa, she murdered the song once again. Paparazzi is one of my favorite songs from her and I was disappointed with the video and this performance.
Okay that’s it, til next year then. 🙂
Oh my gosh!!! I love Adam Lambert! Definitely betting on him to be in the finale… now it’s a toss up between Allison, Matt, Danny and Megan for the other spot. And can somebody just kick off Anoop already? Damn!
I take back everything I said about Lady GaGa. I love her! She’s so cool and hot! That’s the perfect combination. So addicted to her songs right now.. Poker Face, Just Dance, Love Game, Beautiful Dirty Rich, The Fame, Paparazzi and even Eh Eh which is so not like her but I like it….
I can’t believe Kaba Modern didn’t make it to the finale!!! Aside from Jabbawockeez whom by the way has 3 Filipino members, they’re the sickest group in the show America’s Best Dance Crew, they’re amazing!!!
Okay, I know it’s 2009 already and this issue about ‘who copies who’ is so last year, more like so last century! But I just can’t help it when I see people’s reactions and comments about this on the net. Personally, I don’t know Lady Gaga as an artist, I just know she has this song called ‘Pokerface’ – never really heard it. But this whole craze about Christina Aguilera copying her style is so lame. Now even Britney Spears and Gwen Stefani are being accused too. My point is how can someone who’s been in the industry like forever copy someone who’s new? Then again, fans of this Lady Gaga are claiming she’s been in the industry for years, it’s just that she’s only been active since 2008 and had a huge hit. Heck, I heard she even has a greatest hits already! But that’s what I think is going on here – these Lady Gaga fans are making this a huge deal so she’d get more famous. (emphasis on more coz apparently she already is.) And I guess they’re succeeding coz I myself is getting curious. Hey, negative publicity is still publicity. Well, as Christina sang via Can’t Hold Us Down: “It’s a shame you only get your fame through controversy.”
There were talks that Christina was already asked about this and claims she doesn’t even know her or if she’s a guy or a girl. Haha.. 😀 Lady Gaga does sound drag in her defense. I know it may seem like a backlash but it’s not impossible for her not to know who she is. On the other side, I don’t know what Lady Gaga’s say about this though. Coz I don’t think she’s even at fault here nor we can blame her for what her fans are doing. Although, I did heard she’s thanking Christina for copying her coz that put her on the map. Damn right it did!
My opinion? Although they resemble each other at certain angles, this whole copying thing is getting old. I mean I’ve seen that look (straight blonde hair with bangs and scanty, futuristic outfits) like a gazillion times before and no one seems to care. I bet these artists don’t coz it’s not true. They got lots more important things to do. All artists have their own personal style and nobody is copying nobody! Why can’t we all just get along? Who knows these two can be BFFs for all we care. They do look like they got separated at birth. 😀
