Charice's Debut Album Released Today

Take a listen to Charice's debut album "Charice" out today. Charice has a voice to blow your mind. Such a tiny body can produce such powerful vocals. Charice was first featured on Oprah. This girl will go far, and I predict she will be around for a very long time. Stay grounded Charice and don't let the hollywood life get to you. You can also catch Charice on QVC tonight! She will perform tracks from her album tonight at 8pm EST on QVC's QSessions Live.

I love Pyramid and In This Song.

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.
