Christina Aguilera's Bionic Out Now!!!!


I bought Christina Aguilera's newest release Bionic. This album is a totally different style than Back To Basics. I LOVE this album and kept it on repeat all week. It's perfect for me to work out to. Christina worked with Tricky Stewart, newcomer Nicki Minaj, and Linda Perry again. Now a days the style to tearing up the charts is dance pop or electronic type sound. Christina keeps reinventing herself, but still staying true to her vocals and sexuality. Christina's voice seems to have matured even more. She still has her strong vocals but she isnt all over the place. Plenty of times I have read that she is always all over the place with her vocals like she can't control them. In my opinion, Christina could always control her vocals, its just how she wanted to express herself at that time. My favorite songs are "Not Myself Tonight," "WooHoo Ft. Nicki Minaj," "Sex For Breakfast," "Lift Me Up" "All I Need" "I Am" and "You Lost Me". I can't forget the beautiful intro "My Heart" that features hubby Jordan and their baby boy Max. The cutest intro features Jordan trying to get Max to "sing like mommy". This album gets a B+ from me.
Don't let me forget Linda Perry once again is featured on the album with credits of writing and I believe producing. Christina can never do wrong in my eyes. She co-writes beautiful ballads. "I Am" has amazing harmonies, I even got chills down my spine at one point in the middle of the track.

I know that I'm not that good with words at times. Just make sure you got listen to the tracks that I mentioned if you don't by the album. Even though I recommend you buy it.

I have always been proud to be a Nashvillian, but especially now, seeing the love that runs through this city when there are people in crisis.”

New Video: Miley Cyrus - Can't Be Tamed

Miley Cyrus spoke about the video saying, “The video isn’t about being sexy or about who can wear less clothes". Miley wants to make sure people see that it isn't about showing your body, “It’s about explaining the song and living the lyrics… I don’t want to be in a cage. I want to be free and do what I love.”
The song is very catchy and perfect for her breaking free from Hannah Montana. Miley is growing up. She's at the right age to want to do more mature things. Britney was dressed just the same at her age. For the first time I'm saying this, let Miley do her thang and clap it up for her performance in this video.

New Music: Miley Cyrus - Cant Be Tamed


Miley Cyrus is done with Hannah Montana and ready to grow up. The Disney queen has a new track called "Can't Be Tamed". Miley's voice isn't that strong so the whole electro-pop sound works in her favor. Good job on the person who mixed her vocals. It's going to blow up on the radios and be played probably more times than "Party In The U.S.A." and "The Climb" so be ready if your not a Miley fan. The music video for "Can't Be Tamed" will premiere on May 4 on E! News, and the song will be available as a digital single on May 18.

Mariah Carey & Nick Cannon To Renew Their Vows


Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon will say “I do” for the third time. Yes, the THIRD time. The couple is planning to renew their vows on April 30, their two year wedding anniversary. This made me laugh out loud. Why would you renew your vows and you've only been married for two years. Let the married life marinate. The rate Hollywood is going many people divorce sooner than that.

Nick told UsMagazine.com, “We get married every year! That’s our thing. So it’s going to be our third wedding this year. That’s what we’ll be doing on the actual [anniversary]…We’ll do something…A party or event, just to celebrate.”

Ummm.... does anyone think this is weird? Or am I the only one?

Nick also plans to get Mariah another ring, “This is the third ring I have to buy…It’ll be something different. Something good.”

Congrads...again Mr. and Mrs. Cannon

Ready For John Mayer's Summer Tour!


I love me some John Mayer! I'm even more excited for his tour this summer. I came across this video when I stumbled upon his Tumblr account again. John finished his winter tour and will be hitting a town near you this summer.

John wrote this on his Tumblr:
"As a thank you to everyone who came out to a show on this tour, my friend 13th Witness put together a little video memoir of the times we had on the road.

To those who came out…It’s safe to say I had some great times and some not-so-great times on this run. Every second on stage was an uplifting and beautiful experience for me, as I hope it was for you. My new favorite part of playing shows is looking around and watching you. It’s impossible to take a second of this for granted when I can see you letting loose and dancing and singing along and getting to watch that weight on your shoulders lift for 2 hours."

Enjoy the video!!!

Takin' It Back To An Old School Jam

I had to post this song. I heard it on the radio on Sunday when I was listening to the Rhythm Review with Felix Hernandez on NY's 98.7 Kiss FM. You have to check it out! It plays all the classics of R&B and Soul. This guy is so great he even gives you a little background information on some of the songs he plays. The song by Main Ingredient "I Dont Want To Be Lonely" reminds me so much of my grandpa I thought I'd share. A quick cool fact about this group Cuba Gooding Sr. sings in the group. Cuba is actors Cuba Gooding Jr and Omar's father.

Gaga's Topless Magazine Cover Causes Issues


Lady Gaga recently posed for the cover of Q magazine, which has been banned by several leading stores in the U.S. As soon as I found this article and saw the picture I felt people were overreacting. The singer supposedly walked out of the recent shoot after bosses wanted her to strike a controversial pose to address rumors about her being a hermaphrodite. That right there pissed me off. The first comment that came to mind was to "leave Gaga alone".

The article also states the editors weren't impressed with her demands and various negotiations continued. Gaga reportedly burst into tears and walked out. Regardless of what happened at the photoshoot, the final product isn't that risky of a photo.

Borders and other stores (that the article didn't mention) refuses to stock the magazine unless it is placed in a sealed cover (according to QTheMusic.com). I can think back to plenty of covers that featured celebrities practically naked and they weren't sold in plastic wrap. Think back to Ciara's 2008 nude Vibe cover, Britney and Christina's Rolling Stone covers (from '03 and '02). Do people expect certain covers to have certain type of pictures on it? RS is known for controversial covers, but does that mean people won't be outraged by it? I know nothing about Q magazine, but I feel they were giving Gaga a hard time.

John Mayer Brings Fan Onstage

Regardless of what John Mayer said in his recent Playboy interview, the man still puts on a good concert. Many people may be hating on John at the moment (I bet he wishes he could take back the comments from that interview) but this video made me smile. John brings a young fan by the name of Austin onto the stage and they play "Belief" together. John I still love you. Even if your comments were out of line.

New Video: Timbaland Ft. Justin Timberlake - Carry Out

I've been stalking the internet for this video for the longest. Timbaland & Justin Timberlake team up once again for "Carry Out". Check out the new video by the duo for the latest single off Timb's album Shock Value II. This video bored me. For such a hot song, there has to be a hot a video. Videos in general are getting pretty lame now a days.
