miranda-lambert-two-of-a-crime

After seeing Sofia Vergara at the recent ACM Awards, some viewers were scratching their heads as to why the Modern Family actress was there. Obviously, she was there to promote her film Hot Pursuit co-starring Reese Witherspoon, but why appeal to the country crowd. Now, it all makes sense.

Miranda Lambert just debuted her offering to the film soundtrack. With Mrs. Blake Shelton channeling her inner lawbreaker with Carrie Underwood in “Something’ Bad,” she seemed an obvious choice to deliver the lead cut for the film. Lambert revealed to Ryan Seacrest on how she got involved.

“Reese texted me and told me about the movie and wanted me to write something or sing or both. I got inspired,” she said. “It was a bit of a Thelma and Louise theme and that’s totally up my alley. It is really so fun to be part of it.” – Miranda Lambert told Ryan Seacrest

Securing a top musician is a savvy business move by studios since soundtracks generate big business these days. Snagging Miranda seems to work on paper, but “Two of a Crime” is a bit underwhelming. It’s kinda all over the place. It’s a bit country and rock with some Latin flavor added in as an afterthought.

I suppose she was only following Reese’s orders who advised her to whip up something “Southern and a Latin flavor.” That’s not even the oddest thing. For some reason ,the last half of the song is mostly instrumental. So weird. I’ll chalk up this fail to it being Miranda’s first time writing a song specifically for the big screen. Check it out below and weigh in afterward.

Miss Fame Debuts ‘Rubber Doll’ Music Video

miss-fame-rubber-doll-video

Miss Fame is one savvy beyotch. Wisely, she choose the same night she was eliminated from RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 8 to premiere the music video for “Rubber Doll,” the lead cut off her forthcoming debut album.

“Rubber Doll is a new take on my identity,” proclaims Miss Fame in the press release. “It details how my obsession with beauty and makeup helped me to evolve into an alluring creation that captivates imaginations. The lyrics are taken from entries in my own journal.”

Being a former male model, Kurtis Dam-Mikkelsen knows how to work his alter ego’s best angles to the hilt. She looks fantastic in every fantasy fetish latex couture design she wears. It’s very clear old Hollywood glamor including Marilyn Monroe and Marlene Dietrich inspire Miss Fame.

For a RuPaul alum, I will say the clip and song are decently produced. Let’s be honest, some of them are pretty shoddy and cheaply done. Not so in this case. Miss Fame was wise to team up with the same team (Killingsworth Recording Company) that produced Adore Delano’s debut LP. Check out the clip below.

jake-gyllenhaal-boy-band-holeshot

Must get my hands on this CD!!! I’m sure hardcore Jake Gyllenhaal fans were already aware of his boyband past, but not me. That is until today.

The 34-year-old actor was surprised by Ellen DeGeneres with a promo shot taken of his group, Holeshot, years ago. He looks so late 90s, I can’t stand it. I wonder what the other guys are up to these days. Surprisingly, they recorded rock and not pop music. Likely story Jake, likely story ;)

The Southpaw actor also talks about his current dating situation. Apparently, he’s as single as can be and even open to being set up by his mother. How do I randomly bump into Mama Gyllenhaal to throw my hat in the ring. LOL. Check out the interview below.

On May 18, Mariah Carey releases her third compilation album titled #1 To Infinity. The album includes all her 18 number-one songs to top the Billboard Hot 100 and one new track. To the delight of her ever loyal loving Lambs, the 46-year-old diva just debuted the sole original.

Carey co-wrote and produced “Infinity” with Eric Hudson. Mimi sings about coming out triumphant from a breakup on the mid-tempo number. Since it’s featured on a greatest hits album, fittingly, the track serves some major nostalgia. It sounds like something that Mariah would’ve released during the 90s. Until the Brett Ratner-directed video drops, check out the lyric clip below in the meantime.

carly-rae-jepsen-all-that-remix

Maybe it’s because I’m a child of a certain decade, but I adore disco. Even when it wasn’t en vogue, I loved anything from the 70s. Naturally, this neo-disco movement that’s emerged in the past few years is right up my alley.

NYC duo The Knocks transform Carly Rae Jepsen’s 80s-tinged ballad into a slinky disco masterpiece. I can’t get enough.

The Knocks are slaying it these days. Their current hit “Classic” featuring Powers is a favorite, along with their recently-released collaboration with Alex Newell “Collect My Love.” I’m obsessed with these guys. Give their latest a spin below.

I was already in love with “All Cried Out.” But now, I’m even more obsessed thanks to a new remix by Oliver Nelson.

The Swedish producer gives the Blonde and Alex Newell (who BTW is slaying it these days) collaboration an airy disco transformation. The slinky beats and added fun vocal effects make it perfect listening for summer days and nights. This is a must add for your playlist. Check it out below.

Amazing Supercut Featuring Memorable Dance Scenes

Shut Up And Dance” is one of my favorite guilty pop pleasures of the moment. Whenever I hear the extremely catchy track by Walk The Moon, I can’t help but smile and feel the urge to hit the dance floor. Clearly, I’m not alone. Some enterprising YouTube user crafted a wonderful montage featuring the infectious tune.

Clips of memorable dances from 13 Going On 30, Footlose, The Sound of Music, Mamma Mia, Slumdog Millionaire, Save The Last Dance and Beetlejuice are among the countless scenes carefully pieced together for one truly feel-good clip. Check out the masterpiece below.

You’d think the woman who wrote Miley Cyrus’ “Party In The USA” could’ve crafted something more fun. Maybe it was the studio’s idea for a ballad, but still. Jessie J could’ve penned an epic one. Sure “Flashlight” soars but it’s a bit unmemorable. Given that Pitch Perfect 2 is all about the music, I expected more.

At least the accompanying video is a bit more fun. The 27-year-old heads to the Barden Bella’s alma mater for the clip. Sporting a severe cut and shortalls, Jessie roams around Barden University while students go about their merry way. As you’d expect, it ends with Jessie J surrounded by flashlights. Footage from the highly-anticipated sequel is also shown. Check out the music video below.
