Hot Mess Mondays: Nelly Actually Makes A Headline

Yesterday marked the end of a most A-mazing music festival, Treasure Island. I was there. My friends were there. Great music was there. And, my energy was left there. Yet, despite my deep need to get some rest, I’ve decided to power through and write this post. LET’S GET IT!

1) Nelly for  supposedly not knowing about the illegal items on his tour bus.

Last week, Nelly’s tour bus was pulled over at a border checkpoint in Texas where police found boxes/bags of drugs (heroin and marijuana), as well as a loaded pistol. According to reports, Nelly’s “staff member”, Brian Keith Jones, took responsibility for the substances before being arrested. Nelly supposedly knew nothing about what was found.

Although I love Nelly to death, something about this story just doesn’t seem right. There’s absolutely no way I’m going to believe that he was unaware of the drugs on his own bus. Sorry for the stereotype, but rappers and their entourages consume drugs like water.

I guess Nelly’s just smart enough to have a friend like Jones, who’ll take the fall so that the rich and famous can walk away clean.

p.s. Marijuana should really just be legalized.

Moving on…

2) Britney Spears for having bad hair.

Okay. Even I have to admit that this is a little petty. However, I get really really REALLY annoyed when I notice Britney’s bad extensions on X Factor…

Britney Spears is the second highest paid woman in Hollywood, and she can’t manage to get decent extensions?! I guess that’s what happens when your fiance and daddy make the decisions for you.

Even the female X Factor contestants have better hair…

…as well as better voices….  A MESS!

Side Note: Demi Lovato‘s look is always perfection on the show.

Step it up Brit Brit!

3) Christina Aguilera‘s promo team for sucking.

A couple of weeks ago, Christina Aguilera a.k.a. X-tina released her new single “Your Body.” Even though “Your Body” is radio perfect, it’s barely getting any play.

Once again, something just doesn’t seem right. X-tina hasn’t even performed the song live yet…Honestly, if I was X-tina’s team, I would have her single in the top ten by now. It has millions of views on YouTube, so people are OBVIOUSLY listening.

Anyways…we’ll see how X-tina’s “comeback” goes. The Pop diva is set to perform at this year’s American Music Awards on November 18, 2012.

**Lotus drops November 9, 2012.**

 

And, with that, I am ending tonight’s post. Excuse any typos and have a mess of a night!  🙂

 

 

 

 

 

Music Tuesdays: Nicki Minaj is NOT a Rapper. She’s a “Popstar.”

After hearing Nicki Minaj on David Guetta’s track, I started to like her again….UNTIL she released a music video for “Stupid Hoe” and performed “Roman” at the Grammys.

Fortunately, Minaj has decided to leave those tragedies behind (at least for now) and put out some more promising Pop music.

Honestly, I can no longer consider Nicki Minaj a rapper. She clearly wants to be Britney Spears and Lady Gaga with a Katy Perry wig. Sometimes I think the direction of her career is kind of sad. Instead of trying to be the best female rapper of all time, she’s turning into just another dance-track maker.

The song is cute though!

Moving on…

Another rapper releasing new music right now is B.o.B. I love B.o.B. He’s always had his own unique sound.

Listen to his new single “So Good” below!

I know that this song is about to have major airplay. People were already going crazy this morning.

p.s. Rihanna and Chris Brown’s “Birthday Cake” has hit the radio.

Music Tuesdays: U + Me = Us

These posts are getting later and later at night….Struggles.

ANYWAYS, I’m a little tired of the music that’s on the radio. It really is all starting to sound the same. Like I’m obsessed with the dance tracks and all, but I need something new in my life. Or, maybe I just need some good ol’ bubblegum Pop. 😉

Below are some of my favorite Pop songs of yesteryear, and I have had  them all on constant repeat since Sunday. Hollers!

2gether – “U + Me = Us (Calculus)”

I remember when I had the biggest crush on Chad. HA! I don’t even think 2gether was a real group…Regardless, the breakdown in this song goes hard! If only calculus was really that simple…

BB Mak’s “Back Here” 

British boy bands! I really do love this song.

Britney Spears’ “Crazy” 

I can’t believe this came out over a decade ago. That means I’m old and Britney Spears is ancient….haha Okay, maybe not really, but that would explain why her dancing abilities have flown out the window…

Jordan Knight’s “Give It To You”

I didn’t know what this song was really about until I got much older. lol I’m glad that Jordan Knight got his life back together though with New Kids. Remember when he was on VH1’s Surreal Life? Those were rough times.

Hot Mess Mondays – He No Funny

Let me first apologize to all of you for disappearing. My life is a struggle and there’s nothing I can do about it. Although my roommate and I both have jobs and a new apartment, we’ve been sleeping on the floor for the past week and a half. Not to mention, I’ve had no internet to blog with. Struggles….Nonetheless, I’m back and it’s time to take advantage of this shuttle bus’ wifi. Let’s get it!

1) Tracy Morgan for thinking he’s funny.

Last week, Tracy Morgan became a trending topic on Twitter after making homophobic jokes during his comedy show in Nashville. Apparently, Tracy said something along the lines of stabbing his son if his son turned out to be gay. Honestly, I don’t know what to think about this one. I don’t really care about what Tracy Morgan does or says because he’s NOT funny. That’s the real issue here. Yet, this fool continues to make it in Hollywood…There’s too much talent out there for people like him to be successful in my opinion. But, I guess nothing beats good ol’ shucking and jiving across the camera. Right?

p.s. After Tracy’s anti-gay comments, there’s been debate over whether or not he should be fired from the hit NBC show 30 Rock. I know I don’t like Tracy, but I never want to see anyone lose his/her job. A comedic coach is what would really help with this situation…

2) J. Cole for acting like he’ll be relevant in September.

Every so often, I hear something about the release of J. Cole’s new album under Jay-Z’s Roc Nation label. Although I want to be excited for homeboy, a part of me really could care less. As much as I love J. Cole and his music, I completely understand why Jay-Z might have been getting annoyed with the high yellow rapper. You only have .5 seconds to get your  five seconds of fame. Thankfully, Mr. Cole actually has talent, so maybe his hype won’t die by September? I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve already moved on to Tinie Tempah. Just sayin….Get it together J.!

3) Britney Spears for having half-off concert tickets.

Now, I don’t know what to think about this one either. Today, my friend sent out an email about Britney Spears’ concert in San Jose. Apparently, tickets are half-off. I never thought I’d see the day when non-nosebleed seats were $45 bucks at a Britney concert. With that said, we all know Britney is not what she used to be. Not to mention, she’s performing in San Jose…I don’t see that city being super excited about an old Popstar. Still love ya Brit Brit!

p.s. I’m so sad I never got those NKOTBSB tickets! Damn.

4) The judges on NBC’s The Voice for telling teen queen Raquel that this was a good vocal. Watch the vid below!

Now, don’t get me wrong. On a good day, Raquel can sing. She can also perform her little butt off. I enjoyed the performance even though it was not music to my ears. I just think the little sunspot needs another couple of years to mature. Team Frenchie!

Speaking of Frenchie Davis, here’s her performance below.

Sigh…Why can’t I be a big black vocal powerhouse? Some dreams just will never come true… lol

Can Anyone Dethrone Bieber???

As you guys already know, I dig Justin Bieber. His song “Baby” has definitely been on repeat in my iTunes. With that said, I still can’t believe how much success the little sunspot is having. Once again, Bieber’s My World 2.0 holds the #1 spot on the Billboard 200. Not even our darling Charice Pempengco’s self-titled first-internationally released album, could dethrone it.

Ms. Pempengco’s album debuted at number 8, which causes me to wonder whether or not Americans are ready for the Filipina star. Though she has managed to build a following, Charice’s name is still not known amongst the masses stateside, and in my opinion her people need to figure out a way to get younger kids listening to her music.

Charice Mania

p.s. Charice’s album cover is fierce!

Check out Charice’s most recent Oprah performance below.

Charice has the potential to appeal to both younger and older consumers. Anyways, we’ll see how the album fares later on. Sometimes artists can have low debuts, and then all of sudden gain massive popularity. It all depends on how much money, time, and effort their record labels want to spend on them. I’m sure hers has her back though. After all, she is an Oprah and Ellen favorite.

Speaking of Ellen, it looks like Ellen has finally discovered 6th grade talent Greyson Chance, who by chance created a YouTube buzz around his video of him singing Lady Gaga’s “Paparazzi.” After reports that Greyson was signed to Interscope Records, Greyson’s parents told the media that they would seek guidance from multiple people before signing any contracts. Well, it looks like Greyson is now the first artist signed to Ellen’s label eleveneleven.

Ellen Degeneres Starts Label, Signs Greyson Chance

Here’s the video that made Greyson a star.

What do you think? Is Greyson the next Justin Bieber?

Even though I admire Greyson’s voice and raw talent, I don’t know if we can call him the next Justin Bieber just yet. Bieber seems to have cornered the market for the all cute scrawny white boys on YouTube, at least for the moment. With that said, if we are moving towards another bubblegum Pop phase, then there is definitely room for two little white boys, plus some boy bands lol. Awwwww….All this talk of Bieber and Greyson is reminding me of the period when Christina Aguilera and Britney Spears were clear Pop rivals.

Remember when they were innocent?

Britney Spears

The good ol’ days…. 🙂
