True Thursdays: Willow Smith Is Starting A Movement

Whether you agree with Willow Smith’s more “mature” look or not, the truth of the matter is Willow is redefining what it means to be a nine year old. A video was forwarded to me earlier today, and I found it to be incredibly hilarious. The video itself is not exactly funny (more like cute actually), but the idea of young girls embracing the look of teenage rebellion is. Personally, when I was 9 I wanted to be artsy, but I didn’t know how to convey that to the parentals… However, Willow has managed to do so, and I am glad that more girls are doing the same.

Don’t worry. No one is in favor of children growing up too fast. However, if you have a kid who wants to set the style standard for his/her age group, then I say let them!

Side note:  Is it just me or are kids developing swag earlier nowadays? My other friends seem to think so. 😉

p.s. Is anyone else waiting for Willow Smith’s album? A mess, I know… lol

Music Tuesdays: Time for Rihanna to Run Away

Last week, I decided that Music Tuesdays would have more structure. Then, over the past few days, I thought about my personality. Since my personality has no structure, there’s no reason that Music Tuesdays should either. I like all different types of music, and on any given day, a plethora of sounds will move me. With that said, let’s get started with our Music Tuesday shall we?

Willow Smith

Unless you have been hiding under a rock recently, you probably know that Willow Smith has released a new song “Whip My Hair,” which is catching some strong YouTube buzz. Willow’s song was posted early last week, and already has over 2 million for one of the videos. Honestly, I have been listening to her song since its post. lol People are saying that she sounds like Rihanna, and I can kind of hear it. With that said, the girl can sing for a nine year old.

Here’s the song if you haven’t heard it yet.

What do you think? Is Willow too young to be having a music career? Raven Simone had one when she was a child, and she didn’t have any Lindsay Lohan problems later…Then again, as a friend pointed out to me, Raven was not trying to be Rihanna. The only thing allowing me to support Willow is the idea that Will and Jada will be in full control of her career.

Side note: Rihanna had a song called “Whipping My Hair,” which was released a while ago actually. Sadly, Willow’s song is WAY better. In case you missed Rihanna’s song too, here it is.

Did you guys hear Rihanna on Sunday’s VMAs??? Atrocity.

Time for Rihanna to be phased out of the music scene. Schmanks! 😉

Moving On…

Kanye West

Willow is not the only one with a new song out. Kanye West debuted his song “Runaway” at Sunday’s VMAs. After his performance, there seemed to be mixed feelings about the song. I’ve listened to “Runaway” a few times, and I don’t know if I like it just yet. He kind of just sounds like a drunk screaming on the corner…BUT, I think that I’ll eventually start to like it. Maybe…lol

What do you think?

Next…

Kerli

As I stated before my personality has no “structure,” meaning it’s totally random the things that I do and like. For that reason, another singer that I have been listening to for a while now is Kerli. Kerli is the complete opposite of both Willow and Kanye. She has a gothic Pop sound that is all her own, and a personal style that even Gaga might want to try out. Kerli’s from Estonia and has been around for years. I first learned about her when I was looking at choreography done by Sonya Tayeh from Fox’s hit show “So You Think You Can Dance.” Anyways, there are two songs that I want you guys to check out by Kerli. The first is called “Tea Party” and the second is “Walking On Air.”  The video for “Tea Party” was released back in March. “Walking On Air,” however, is an older song from over a year ago.

Despite Kerli being an established artist in her own right, I know that a lot of people still haven’t caught onto her. Hopefully, you guys enjoy her sound. Go to Youtube to see more of her videos, and please, no Gaga comparisons. They’re two completely different artists with enough talent between the both of them to entertain us all.  😉

Hot Mess Mondays: From Lady to Lindsay – They’re All Crazy

Once again, another week of hot messness has passed, and it’s up to me to present to you the top 5 celebs, who were and are a hot mess. Let’s get it!

1) Floyd Mayweather Jr. for getting arrested.

Last week, I hoped that I would not be reporting another arrest. With that said, I’m not surprised. Someone always has to be getting in trouble. Right now, Mayweather could face up to 5 years in prison for grand larceny charges. In addition to supposedly beating his girlfriend, Mayweather is also accused of stealing the girl’s cell phone, which explains the potential grand larceny charges. Smh…

2) Lindsay Lohan for wanting to get pregnant.

Rumor has it that Lindsay Lohan believes that having a baby will help turn her life around. Lindsay supposedly cited Nicole Richie as a perfect example of her goals.

When I heard this, all I could think was “Oh Lindsay….”

Here’s the story —–> Lindsay Lohan Rumors

3) Lady Gaga for wearing meat at the VMAs.

Honestly, Lady Gaga is starting to annoy me. She’s commandeered every single “original style” for herself, causing more people to label her as Ms. Unique. Even though I love her music and the craziness, sometimes I just wish she would sit down and pick a persona. Not to mention, the whole meat thing was just too much and another cry for attention. She couldn’t even articulate to Ellen DeGeneres the purpose of her wearing the dress. I’m starting to feel like Gaga just needs a hug.

4) Anyone involved with the VMAs for making a very boring show.

Speaking of Gaga, I tried watching the VMAs live last night. I saw Gaga accept an award, and watched Taylor Swift and Drake’s performances before deciding that the night was not going to be that exciting. Later, I watched the rest of the performances online, and saw that Bieber was cute, but not spectacular; that Usher was cool, but outperformed by his light show; and that Rihanna was horrible as always. Honestly, MTV you failed. Anyone else think that they should have made Willow Smith perform “Whip My Hair” last night? Something tells me that a pinky from the Smith family has more talent than Rihanna. Just sayin’…

5) Snooki for writing “Tan” on job applications.

If you haven’t been watching MTV’s Jersey Shore, then all I can say is START WATCHING! The show is absolute hilarity. On last week’s episode Snooki explained how she didn’t get several jobs because under ethnicity she checked the “Other” box and wrote down “Tan.” Good job Snooki. Good job.

p.s. You can watch the latest Jersey Show episode on MTV.com.

**A part of me wishes that celebs wouldn’t be such a mess. Then again, some of these celebs just bring me so much joy and entertainment. lol

Look out for a whole new Hot Mess list  next Monday.  😉
