Hot Mess Mondays: That’s NOT Hot

It’s been far too long amigos… Let’s get it!

1) Charlie Fuqua for being a complete nutjob.

Just when I thought the GOP couldn’t get any worse, it did….Charlie Fuqua, the Republican candidate for the Arkansas House of Representatives, is openly supporting the death penalty for “rebellious children.”

Read the full story here –> Charlie Fuqua Supports Death Penalty

Honestly, these Republicans are starting to make me very uncomfortable. First, they supported women having their rapists’ children. Now, they’re supporting the killing of children…

Don’t get me wrong. I’m well aware that the views of a few idiots do not represent the entire party. It’s just sad that the GOP is attracting the crazies. Where are the sane Republicans??? Oh wait…they’re probably trying to hold Mitt Romney’s campaign together. Fail.

p.s. This picture of Fuqua all over the Internet is not particularly flattering. He lowkey looks like a pedophile….

2) Mariah Carey for taking “threats on her life” a little too seriously.

Last week, Mariah Carey  told The View‘s Barbara Walters that Nicki Minaj threatened to shoot her. Carey and Minaj are both judges on American Idol.

Nicki Minaj

Personally, I think all of the drama surrounding Carey and Minaj is for TV ratings. With that said, I wouldn’t be surprised if they both hated each other’s guts. If I was Mariah Carey, I would constantly side eye Nicki Minaj and her Skittles weave at the judge’s table. Like, why is she even there? Rainbow Bright was never known for her voice…Just sayin’.

Side note: I wonder what  Keith Urban thinks about all of this drama. He probably wants to shoot himself for agreeing to do A.I. with two huge divas.

3) Justin Bieber for throwing up in concert.

Apparently, during the first show of his Believe tour, Mr. Bieber thought it was okay to vomit on stage.

While the media continues to praise Bieber for finishing his show, I’m still gagging at the idea of seeing such a mess live. I don’t care if Michael Jackson arose from the grave to perform. I wouldn’t want to see him hunched over sick…

4) Lady Gaga for also vomiting several times on stage in Barcelona.

I really hope this isn’t becoming a trend because it’s NOT hot…

It’s just A MESS!

Hot Mess Mondays: At Least He Looks Good

After taking two Mondays off for Labor Day (don’t ask…lol), I’m baaack. Let’s get it!

1) Mitt Romney for being a complete idiot.

Just when I was about to declare American Idol as the #1 Hot Mess, I heard about Mitt Romney’s comments at a private fundraiser back in May.  Read the full story here —> Secretly Filmed Video of Mitt Romney

According to Mitt, “There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. [These people] believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing….and that the government should give it to them.” Furthermore, “these are people who pay no income tax.”

Really Mitt?

As if that statement wasn’t bad enough, Mitt goes on to joke about how being Latino would help him win the election…

When will Mitt and the rest of the GOP learn to SHUT UP?! I mean, it really isn’t that hard… Don’t they teach quiet time in Kindergarten? I’m just sayin’….#AMess

On a brighter note, I was looking at old pictures of a young Mitt Romney the other day. He looks significantly better today than he did in this picture.

I wonder if he waxes his eyebrows now or if the white hair just blends in with his face…Whatever it is, he looks good for an older man. lol 

2) American Idol for actually making Nicki Minaj a judge.

WTF American Idol! Did I miss something? First of all, I thought Nicki Minaj was a rapper personality. Secondly, I thought she didn’t sing without autotune…

When I first heard rumors of Nicki joining the judges panel, I didn’t give it too much thought. Now, I don’t know what to think. Even Mariah Carey doesn’t like the show’s decision.

Apparently, Mariah does not get along with Ms. Rainbow Bright.  Surprise…Surprise…Nicki vs. Mariah

p.s. I’m glad Keith Urban has joined A.I. Luv him! 🙂

3) Chris Brown for being stupid.

Last week, the media went crazy when a new tatoo appeared on Chris Brown’s neck.

Chris’ tat looks like a battered woman’s face. However, it is an image inspired by a MAC cosmetics design. Check the proof here –> Chris Brown Tatoo

Although Brown appears to be innocent this time, his lack of good judgment still makes him a hot mess.

By the way, Chris Brown is scheduled to have a probation hearing soon. Some aren’t convinced that the singer/rapper has been completing his community service hours since being convicted in 2009 for beating up ex-gf Rihanna.

4) Amanda Bynes for becoming the next Lindsay Lohan.

Over the weekend, Bynes’ car was impounded after she was caught driving with a suspended license. Bynes was charged with a DUI in June and has been having frequent run-ins with police ever since.

Personally, I am shocked that Amanda is the latest starlet to have drug abuse/legal troubles.

I guess that’s Hollywood for you. Bynes used to be hot. Now, she’s not.

Even Lindsay Lohan had something to say about Bynes’ recent misbehaviors –> Lindsay Lohan on Amanda Bynes

Wild Wednesdays: Mariah Carey Taking Care Of Two Boys?

Mariah Carey

Last week, rumors circulated that Beyonce and Jay-Z were expecting their first child. The news caused a media frenzy that ultimately ended in disappointment seeing as though the stars are reportedly not pregnant after all.

Now, after just a week, reports are once again swirling, but this time not around Jay-B.  Apparently, Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon are expecting their first child, a baby boy. Although the couple has not confirmed the pregnancy, this rumor is looking to be more and more true. Even E! Online tweeted the news last night.

With that said, Mariah’s baby bump is not the most wild story of the day (even though who would have thought that the singer would get pregnant at 40?). The wild part of this story is what I heard on the radio last night.

Mariah Carey is scheduled to make several TV show appearances to promote her new Christmas album. She will even be appearing on Chelsea Lately, Chelsea Handler’s late-night talk show. Now, for those of you who don’t know, Chelsea and Nick have been throwing jabs at each other via Twitter over the past couple of months. Personally, I think it’s funny that Mariah will sit down with Chelsea despite the comedian’s problems with her husband. I have a feeling both Mariah and Chelsea will be cracking up at Cannon jokes throughout the interview, and to me, that’s wild. It makes sense though. Mariah is a superstar first, and a wife second. Just saying… She’s already carrying one boy. She doesn’t have to take care of another. 😉

p.s. Even though I’m happy for Nick and Mariah, their story still doesn’t compare to the stupidity over at Riker’s Island where Lil Wayne is in “solitary confinement.” Hip Hop Wired reported today that another correctional officer had been suspended for chatting it up with the rapper. Wild…Is Wayne really that tight? —> Correctional Officer Suspended For Visiting Wayne

Old Skool Tear-Jerkers

It was just last night, when I thought to myself “Hmmm Bina, what should you write about next?” That’s when I randomly got on Youtube and started watching old music videos. Finally, I wound up at Celine Dion’s performance of the 1997 hit song “My Heart Will Go On.” At first, my Youtube searching seemed pretty random, but then I realized that everything that I searched for touched my heart in some form or fashion while growing up. I think that many of us love to reminisce about the past, especially those of us who appreciated our childhoods and the songs and shows that came with them.

So, let’s take a walk down memory lane, and remember some of those songs that warmed our hearts. Nothing can beat the music from the 90s and early 2000s. I don’t care what anyone else says.

Celine Dion – “Meart Heart Will Go On”

If there was such a thing as the perfect song, then Celine’s “My Heart Will Go On” off the “Titanic” soundtrack would be it. There’s enough emotion in the music video that no one ever has to watch the actual movie to get a tear.

Also, here’s a link to the Celine performance that served as inspiration for today’s post. Celine Dion – Titanic Live

Boys II Men and Mariah Carey – “One Sweet Day”

As separate performance entities, Boys II Men and Mariah could both make me cry. It’s not a surprise that they made my list as a partnership.

Aerosmith – “I Don’t Wanna Miss A Thing”

Like most tear-jerking songs, Aerosmith’s “I Don’t Wanna Miss A Thing” was written for the soundtrack to a great movie (i.e. “Armageddon”). I don’t think anyone could forget the unbelievably sad/happy/hopeful  ending of that film.

Goo Goo Dolls – “Iris”

This might be my favorite song of life. I never saw “City of Angels”, but as the film’s main song off the soundtrack, it’s extremely well done. Love you Goo Goo Dolls for sure.

Puff Daddy ft. Faith Evans – “Be Missing You”

I loved the MTV performance of this song so much that I had to include it instead of the actual music video. All of us can remember when violence took both Biggie and Tupac from us. Oh back in the day when P. Diddy was Puffy…If you really want to see the original music video, you know I was not about to disappoint. Click Here – Ill Be Missing You

**Of course, these five songs are not the only Tear-jerkers from back in the day. There are plenty of great songs. Feel free to leave a comment, saying what your favorite music tear-jerkers are.

p.s. When I originally started writing I People Watch, it was not my intention to have a blog full of posts about music. That must say something, right? Music is something that touches everyone’s soul and will always continue to do so. 🙂
