Hot Mess Mondays: Why Do U.S. Artists Suck???

Guess who’s back! And, I’m back full force. After my longest hiatus ever, I think it’s definitely time for a real return. Not to mention, the Billboard Awards took place last night and there’s a lot of people to call out for their hot messness. Let’s get it!

1) Chris Brown for TERRIBLE lip-synching.

Usually, I give Brown a free pass since he literally dances his ass off. BUT, last night, his lips were so out of sync with the track that I absolutely had to put him on this list. Watch Chris’ performance below.

I do better than that singing in front of the mirror….

Sidenote: Why did he borrow Harriet Tubman’s headscarf for this performance….I’m just sayin’.

2) Katy Perry for another horrible vocal.

I heart this song, but O.M.G. At least Rihanna can start a song off right. Katy was horrible from the very beginning. I think it’s time for Ms. Perry to consider playback.

p.s. Didn’t Pink twirl around once above the stage and sound A-mazing doing it?

Yup….that’s what I thought.

3) Justin Bieber for failing to sell me on his new single.

I saw Bieber perform “Boyfriend” on The Voice. His performance was okay, but he could’ve done better.

Now, he’s done worse. I just think boo boo needs to let his voice finish changing because that awkward squeaking is doing the absolute most. Maybe Chris Brown should give him one of his free passes….

4) Nelly Furtado for confusing the hell out of me.

I don’t know whether I liked her performance or not. It was Pop/Rock/Hip Hop? The only real adjective that for sure fits this song is LOUD. lol Maybe it will grow on me….

5) The Wanted for making the U.S. look real bad.

They’re hot and talented?! I am so sold on this U.K. manband. **HOT**

BTWs I have to give Usher some credit here because he sang AND danced AND sounded really good doing both. Hollers old man!

If only he would cut that scruff!

Hot Mess Mondays: Grow Up Bieber!

Okay, I might get some heat for this one, BUT….

1) Justin Bieber for growing into womanhood.

I know that I’ve already put him on this countdown once for this, but I just can’t get over the girlie-faced popstar. When most boys grow up, they get…well…manlier. I don’t know if higher testosterone levels are in Bieber’s future, but one can only hope. After all, it took Zac Efron a while, and he turned out just fine.

Zac Efron

p.s. This will be my last post about Bieber’s look. Poor thing can’t help it.

2) Nicki Minaj for her “new” single featuring Rihanna.

Okay, is it just me, or did Nicki Minaj release “Fly” last year? Radio stations and websites are calling it a new single, and it’s bothering me because I’m pretty sure I was singing this LAST summer. Maybe I’m just a little tired of Ms. Minaj….and her sidekick RiRi.

3. Bishop Eddie Long for being in denial.

Even though his wife has filed for divorce, Eddie Long is choosing to remain optimistic about his marriage. According to Eddie, he and his wife love each other and are not mad at each other…

Yeah right! If any of the black women I know were in the middle of an Eddie Long sex scandal, they would be mad. There’s nothing positive about a cheating husband. And, there’s definitely nothing positive about a cheating husband who is involved with young boys….Side-eye. I won’t judge Bishop Long. I’ll leave that up to his Father.

Note to Men: Women can “forgive” you when things unfold behind closed doors, not in the national news.

4. The creators of New Year’s Eve for making New Year’s Eve.

One can only hope that this movie won’t suck, but alas this is another product of Hollywood…New Year’s EveΒ  comes out this Friday, December 9th in theaters.

Hot Mess Mondays: Blah Blah Blah

Let’s cut to the chase and GET IT!

1) Bill O’Reilly for being played by 50 cent.

If you have been following the FOX news/Chris Brown story, then you know that rapper 50 Cent has come to the Pop singer’s defense. A little over a week ago, Chris Brown performed on The Today Show to a record-breaking crowd of fans. Although Brown’s performance was well-received, FOX employees, including the infamous Bill O’Reilly felt the need to attack the singer and his past abusive behaviors. As a result, 50 Cent came to Brown’s defense, causing a mini back and forth with the network, which ended with 50 bringing up Bill O’Reilly’s sexual harassment scandal a few years back…as suspect as that scandal was….

When will Bill O’Reilly and everyone else just learn to shut up? I am so tired of the negativity! ol

p.s. I’m not taking sides here. Both Chris Brown and his FOX enemies need to GROW up.

2) Captain America filmmakers for making a bad movie…

Now, I have yet to see the superhero flick, but my sources are telling me that the movie was not that good…Sadness. I was really excited about this one. Actually, not really…lol

Anyways, my sources are “legit.” One of them is your stereotypical boy and loves any movie where things blow up (i.e. Predator, Expendables, The Mechanic, etc.). The movies I just listed aren’t Oscar winners folks…so, if he’s saying it’s bad, I have to believe him.

With that said, if you thought Captain America was awesome, do tell! Either way, I’m going to try and see it. πŸ™‚

3) Justin Bieber for still looking like a girl.

I hate to say it, but it’s so true….At least when I was younger, the boy bands that little girls were obsessed with looked like members of the opposite sex….Now, I love Justin Bieber. And, I’m aware that the poor thing can’t help how he matures. I just hope that one day he’ll turn into a man. How exciting would that be?! *Cough *Cough * Zac Efron *Cough

4) Ashley for being a mess onΒ The Bachelorette.

I already know what most of you are going to say, but I am very PROUD to be a Bachelor/ Bachelorette fan. This is quality reality TV at its finest. If it wasn’t, then it wouldn’t be on the air! lmao Anyways…

I’m just so so sad because last week Ashley kicked off the most entertaining person on the show, Ames. For those of you, who don’t follow The Bachelorette, Ames is quintessentially what every girl wants. Even though Ames can look a little odd, there is no denying that his poetic articulation is music to everyone’s ears. If Ashley doesn’t want him, then someone else will take him. lol πŸ˜‰

p.s. My friend said that Ames looks like Dorey from Disney’sΒ Finding Nemo

Yes? No? Maybe so? I just think he has an incredibly large forehead that holds an incredibly large brain. Nonetheless, homeboy is photogenic! Kind of….lol

Go Ames!

Hot Mess Mondays: The Grammys

Good morning boys and girls!

I’m sure everyone is aware that today is Valentine’s Day. Whether you have that “special someone” to share your evening with or not, Valentine’s Day can always be about so much more than just one person. It is a day to show love, and there is plenty of love and roses to go around. πŸ™‚

Anyways, enough with this V-day mumbo jumbo. I know why you’re really here, so let’s get it!

1) Lady Gaga for being born this way – a mess.

Last night, Gaga arrived on the Grammy red carpet inside of an egg shaped pod. Now, as much as I want to love Gaga, I just can’t support her antics anymore. She is always trying to top her own ridiculousness, and quite frankly I’m becoming a little annoyed. There’s a difference between being different and unique, and being a desperate attention-seeker. Unfortunately, Gaga is starting to become the latter. Not to mention, her new song “Born This Way” also has me on edge. Gaga’s new single honestly reminds me of everything that’s been done in the late eighties, early nineties, and I definitely understand the Madonna comparison. Regardless of its unoriginal style, however, I just actually don’t like the song. I’m a little disappointed and hope that the rest of her new music will be better….

p.s. Many of Gaga’s little monsters think “Born This Way” is the best thing since sliced bread. Why am I not surprised?…

2) Whoever attacked Esperanza Spalding’s Wikipedia page.

If you watched the Grammys last night or the news this morning, then you are probably aware of the “controversy” surrounding Best New Artist winner, Esperanza Spalding. Many people were flabbergasted when the Oregon native jazz singer took home the trophy over public favorite, Justin Bieber. Therefore, it was no surprise when not-so-nice comments were left on Esperanza Spalding’s Wikipedia page.

Honestly, I’m not really that upset that Esperanza won. Even though I had no idea who she was before last night, I trust that she was both nominated and voted winner by the academy for a reason. I checked out some of her music after the Grammys, and the sound is pretty good. I’m not really into jazz, but I liked it. With that said, during my investigation of her, I realized that she’s been out for a minute, which leaves the question, “Why was she nominated for Best New Artist?” At least homegirl has a really nice style… πŸ˜‰

3) Everyone who arrived to the Grammys looking a hot mess.

Nicki Minaj

Katy Perry

There were plenty of crazy fashion statements being made on the red carpet this year, but these two were just some of the worst! lol I know that artists are known to wear crazy outfits to the Grammys, but the show is not a Halloween extravaganza. Just sayin…

4) Rihanna and Eminem for performing that stupid song again!

A lot of people love Eminem’s “Love The Way You Lie,” featuring Rihanna. At one point, I did too. But honestly, if I have to hear this stupid song one more time, I’m going to go crazy…Not to mention, Rihanna can never perform the song well live. Can she just use playback please? It would be so much better, and no one would mind. Like, really. πŸ˜‰

Side Note: One of my favorite performances from last night was Justin Bieber, Usher, and Jaden Smith. Too cute!

Hot Mess Mondays: Guess Who’s Baaaack?!

Me! lol Hallo boys and girls. I am officially back and it feels oh so marvelous!

Now, I know that I promised to return January 1st, but you all know my record for punctual returns by now….In all seriousness, I have been M.I.A. for a very good reason. I’m ending my funemployment. Sadness. Yes, I know. After 3 weeks in D.C., I decided to come back to LA focused and ready to take on the job hunt. So far, things aren’t looking too shabby. No matter what I should be achieving my Febs 1st deadline of no more funemployment. Hooray!

With that said, I know that I am not necessarily the one that you all are interested in. It’s been a long time coming for this Hot Mess Monday post. Let’s get it!

1) Gucci Mane for tatooing “Burr” on his face.

Gucci Mane has been making plenty of headlines lately for comments of “mental incompetency.” Although everyone knows that Gucci Mane is a mess for several reasons, his new tat has to top any hot mess list. It’s one thing to say “Burr!” in every music video and song. It’s another to have that mess tatooed on your face on a giant ice-cream cone. There’s no “hip” in this fool’s hop. And no, Gucci. Lightening bolts do not make your tat any cooler…

2) Justin Bieber for getting his hair trimmed.

Bieber’s locks have been a major topic of discussion ever since he first burst into Pop stardom. I mean, who could ignore the constant hair flipping in EVERY interview? It’s a wonder that ol’ boy didn’t get whiplash…Anyways, now Bieber has gotten his hair trimmed, and the whole world is talking again. Unfortunately, the shorter side bangs are not really working for me.

People used to say that Bieber looked like a young lesbian before. I never saw it. To me, he looked like a regular adolescent white boy, which is what he is… (in case there was some confusion). lol But now, I’m not so sure. Maybe next time Bieber. πŸ˜‰

3) Snooki for saying that she is tired of her nickname.

Apparently, the Jersey Shore’s Snooki was caught running her mouth again. This time it was about how she misses being called by her real name Nicole. I’m sorry, but did I miss something? Snooki is the name that brought you a lot of fame and a lot of money.

Without the name Snooki, this little Chilean Italian would be irrelevant. Sounds to me like someone needs to SIT down, and stop complaining! Smh… lol

p.s. The Jersey Shore is A-mazing, and a special episode is airing tonight on MTV! I believe there will be a drunk “Nicole” getting arrested on the beach.Β  πŸ™‚

4) Nina Tassler, CBS exec, for making comments about Charlie Sheen.

Charlie Sheen’s problems over the years have been talked about in every newspaper, magazine, and media outlet. However, I think it’s funny that CBS executive Nina Tassler feels the need to talk about CBS’ “high level of concern” for the actor now. Let’s be real. There’s no point in even voicing concern. At the end of the day, no one cares what goes on in Charlie’s personal life, as long as he continues to bring in the big bucks for studios. Unless Ms. Tassler is going to try and actively get involved with Sheen’s personal troubles, any comments on Sheen just aren’t necessary.

5) The Golden Globes for not giving me anything to talk about…

Even though I have no real comments about the attendees at last night’s Globes, I do want to congratulate all of the winners. I more or less agree with the awards that were given out, and am excited about Colin Firth’s win for “The King’s Speech.” Can’t wait for the Oscars! πŸ™‚

Music Tuesdays: Bieber’s Street Cred

It’s official. Justin Bieber has more street cred than a lot of people right now, including me. Actually, I might not have ever had street cred…lol

Anyways…

Popeater.com reports that the little sunspot has released a remix to his “Runaway Love.” The original “Runaway Love” appeared on Bieber’s My World 2.0 album. The remix features Wu-tang Clan’s Raekwon and Kanye West.

Listen to the song now! ——> Runaway Love

Is it a winner? Fans seem to be split. Leave a comment!

Love and Happiness

Justin Bieber premiered his latest music video for “Somebody To Love” yesterday on Vevo. I must at admit that the video, featuring Usher, is kind of the ish. It’s a pretty cool concept, using different dance groups from ABDC plus a step team and some others. Someone needs to give Usher props for knowing how to stay relevant. In addition to having his own success as a solo artist, Usher stays standing next to Bieber all of the time. Sure, he helped discover the boy, but Usher knows that the more times he partners with Bieber nowadays, the more success he’ll see as an artist. Luda knows too!

Here’s the video Enjoy!

Feelin’Β  it?

Side note: Apparently, there’s a 27 year old woman that continuously gets mistaken for Bieber. The whole thing sounds a hot mess lol. TMZ reported the full story on their website –> TMZ Justin Bieber Look A Like

Moving on…..

What type of person would I be if I didn’t support the World Cup right now??? It is the biggest global event happening. Even though I didn’t wake up this morning to watch the US game….I must admit that I am a HUGE fan of the music that the World Cup is promoting. Here are Shakira’s version of “Waka Waka,” and K’naan’s “Wavin’ Flag.” If you haven’t heard these two songs, then I don’t know what to tell you except to listen now! lol

If you want to watch the “official” music video instead click here —>Shakira Waka Waka

p.s. I really am happy that Shakira was chosen to sing “Waka Waka.” She definitely brings a lot of energy to the table, and considering that her U.S. album wasn’t exactly a hit with Billboard this year, it’s nice to see some other success on the global stage. ***Also, it should be noted that Shakira was not the original creator of “Waka Waka.” The catchy chorus first came from a song called “Zangalewa” performed by the group Golden Sounds, now known as Zangalewa. Check out the original song –> Zangalewa πŸ™‚

And, here’s K’naan’s “Wavin’ Flag.”

Don’t you just love it when the world comes together? lol I think it’s about time I up my World Cup game, and watch some matches. Four years ago, I followed the Italians all the way to their victory. I wonder what team I should root for this time. Hmmm…….
