Going GaGa!!!
November 28, 2009

She made us look. Whether it was on the VMA or AMA, our eyes were cemented on the Lady GaGa show. She’s NOT the typical pop princess that we’ve become acquainted with…no Britney Spears or Christina Aguilera but she exudes the same fervor. She’s an exhibitionist and her clothes & videos are plainly her art of expression. I could see her being the ultimate dream for extraordinary designers like John Galliano or Alexander McQueen but Lady GaGa takes full claim of her flamboyant style. GaGa has been taking risks and pushing envelops since stepping on the scene and breaking barriers with her signature uniqueness. One is never bored with her radical displays and whether it’s disturbing or just down right crazy, Lady GaGa commandeers our attention!

Take 2 Alicia!!!
November 27, 2009

When I first saw “Try Sleeping With A Broken Heart,” I wasn’t impressed. It had superficial outtakes of our superwoman healing a dying dog and blasting off into the sky; after witnessing Alicia climbing mountains in stilettos in “Doesn’t Mean Anything,” let’s just say that I was greatly disappointed. But after giving this song/video a second look-see, I’m definitely recanting my first thoughts and delving much deeper in the meaning behind Alicia’s second effort. The lyrics are based on living with a broken heart and the video compliments it beautifully. Instead of showcasing the deception of someone cheating on her, it has a sort of Hancock theme where Alicia’s love cannot be too close due to her special powers. It’s definitely painful to be in love with someone and not be with them. The make up is flawless as if someone could actually add anymore beauty to the stunning Ms. Keys. I was especially feeling the lilac lips to match that purple one-piece and her fabulous updo with the backless dress. I will add that Alicia does need to practice walking in those heels if she’s wants to sell the look and to please learn to rock those curvaceous hips…yikes! Still in all, I’m totally feeling Alicia’s Take 2!!!

Is Diddy Done???
November 27, 2009

There was a time when everything that was stamped with his name or infamous cameos were destined to be a hit. Biggie & Mase were a few but clearly those times and wonders are a thing of his past. He told us before that he won’t stop but after watching his latest effort…I’m begging Diddy to cease! Let’s just say Dirty Money’s “Love Come Down” isn’t making mine fall like what Evelyn Champagne King once did for me in the 80’s. To be completely honest, Diddy really never had rhyming skills but at least his past efforts were sincerely better than this new slow tempo talking…could it be blamed on those grills in his mouth? I mean we have to blame it on something! This video doesn’t compliment this song if that was even possible. It’s mainly dark, chime-ridden set makes it difficult to see the singers faces even with those annoying flashing lights…or is that the point? Damn…I really don’t have much more to add to this wack song/video. Musically Diddy, you’re DONE!!
