On Thursday night during American Idol, Jessica Sanchez and Ne-Yo performing their new single “Tonight,” and in this live performance, Donovan said it wasn’t her best in his recap of the episode. Yesterday (Friday), the Idol alum released the music video for the song which we’ve embedded for you below.
Teaming up with Ne-Yo is never a bad thing when you’re a teen reality show castoff trying to build your singing career. “Tonight” is much more of a dance-pop song than we’re used to seeing Sanchez do so it’s kind of cool to see her change her image up and let loose in her club-vibe video.
Check out the video below and let me know what you think. I’m looking forward to seeing what’s next from her!
98 Degrees are the latest boy band from yesteryear to drop a brand new single. They debuted it on New York radio station Z100 earlier today. “Microphone” is the first new song from the group in a decade.
Was it worth the wait? It’s not as awesome as NKOTB’s “Remix (I Like The),” but it’s not half bad. It’s sorta The Wanted-lite. You can definitely hear a bit of the British man band in it. I’m a little surprised they went with an uptempo track. 98 Degrees, for me, has always shined when they did their ballads. Don’t you agree? “Microphone” is the lead cut from their upcoming studio album 2.0. Check out their comeback single below.
“#secret project. I want to start a revolution! Are you with me?” For weeks Madonna has been teasing her fans about this “secret project” with pictures like this on her Instagram account. What revolution? And why does she want us with her?
The 54-year-old singer just debuted a trailer for said project and it’s even more of a mystery than before. After watching it, I’m even more clueless. The 60 second clip alternates between a blurry red figure and a twitching bloodshot eye. The one clear thing revealed is that it has something to do with Steven Klein. The photographer previously worked with Madge on numerous tour visuals, which would indicate perhaps the project involves her recent successful MDNA tour. That global romp was the highest-grossing tour in 2012. Perhaps a DVD is on our way? One can only speculate. Check out the clip below.
Remember MTV Icon? The short-lived tribute annual special ran between 2001 til 2004. Each year, the network would pay homage to a musical act they deemed a cultural icon. Aerosmith, Metallica and The Cure were all celebrated on the series. The inaugural honor, however, went to Janet, Miss Jackson if your “Nasty,” Jackson.
For her special, MTV brought in several acts to honor Jackson. Outkast kicked things off with a performance of their then-hit “Ms Jackson.” The rest of the night featured other pop acts either covering Janet’s biggest hits or paying homage in their own way. My two favorite moments from the special came from a video by ‘N Sync and a dance tribute from P!nk, Usher and Mya. The boy band filmed an exact replica of my favorite Jackson hit, “That’s The Way Love Goes.” Meanwhile, the trio strutted their stuff to some of Janet’s iconic choreography. It was EPIC.
Not everything was a success though that night. Destiny’s Child, Macy Gray and Buckcherry all bombed big time (IMHO) with their respective covers. The evening ended with Janet performing “All For You” accompanied by dancers wearing some of her signature looks from her music videos. Check out some of the performances below.
In addition to the already announced lineup of performers for Jeffrey Sanker’s White Party 2013 in Palms Springs next weekend, this week some surprise additions were added and another has joined the pack. Earlier this week, it was announced that Carly Rae Jepsen would be performing at the Sunday night T-Dance. Then, we learned that Girls Gone Wild founder, Joe Francis would be hosting the T-Dance and celebrating his 40th birthday party, inviting all of his celebrity friends including the Kardashian sisters! Now, yet another performer has been added to the list.
Vassey has been added to the lineup, headlining the Sunday night party and surely performing her hit “We Are Young,” remixed by Dave Aude. The song has made it to #1 on the Billboard charts and recently celebrated the victory at The Abbey in West Hollywood. So exciting to have so many great acts and fun people at the event and I can’t wait for Adam and I to get there! We’ll have a video montage of our experience so see what it’s like and join us next year if you can’t make it this year.
Check out Vassey’s #1 hit below and hope to see you on Easter weekend in Palms Springs! If you see us, come say hi!
Cody and I talked about this video for a while during the multitude of pillow talk we have while I brushed his hair back from his forehead and listened to his days on set. He was really excited for it, and now my husband has finally done it and released his first single “Baby Get Out.”
There’s no missing the fact that I think Cody Belew is a serious talent, but I really think he hit the nail on the head with a duet and shows me he’s just looking to make good music instead of prioritizing having the solo spotlight for the sake of having the spotlight. Kudos!
Featured in the single and video is another great talent, New Orleans native Meghan Linsey, one half of country duo Steel Magnolia. Leave it up to Cody to find another great talent, and the great thing is this bombshell’s voice accompanies Cody’s so well. I think the single is great, and should do well on the country charts. The video is well shot, the chorus is catchy, I dig. Also, I follow Cody on basically all social media, ’cause I’m clearly head over heels for him, as one husband is to another husband naturally, but I can see him really pushing himself out there and can’t wait to see his career continue to take off from here. So get the single on iTunes, and also go to his new website codybelew.com for all things Belew.
Tune in next week when Cody posts a picture of a goat from Ecuador and I wonder why it’s not on CNN. Yes, I actually know he’s in Ecuador. Sigh.
Man, Robin Thicke is one sexy mother effer. I love his music, his look, his moves, and his latest music video for his new single, “Blurred Lines.” The singer, who stars in the Real Husbands of Hollywood, is preparing to release what will be his sixth studio album.
In both the song and video, Thicke joins T.I. and Pharrell and I for one am a fan of both. The song is upbeat, funky, sexy and has certainly added a little kick to my morning. The song is produced by Pharrell as well and in a part of the chorus of the song, Thicke sings, “I know you want it / But you’re a good girl / The way you grab me / Must wanna get nasty / Go ahead, get at me.” An entourage of sexy female models join the boys in the video as they all get nasty to the song together. The song reminds me of Usher’s “Twisted” and Madonna’s “Give It To Me,” which also both feature Pharell. Although I was reminded of those songs from the beat and a few of the sounds, this one is of course very different and has the Robin Thick twist. As someone I know says on occasion, this song and video is a “panty dropper!”
Watch the video below and let me know what you think. I can’t wait to hear the rest of his album when it comes out!
I was SO not expecting this but I’m not gonna lie, I’m excited. Keeping Up With The Kardashians and the spinoffs have been guilty pleasures of mine over the last couple years so it would be fun to meet them if I get the opportunity.
The announcement was made this week that Joe Francis, creator of Girls Gone Wild and Guys Gone Wild, is celebrating his 40th Birthday at the Sunday T-Dance and has been asked to host the event by his friends Jeffrey Sanker and The Abbey founder David Cooley. He’s inviting some of his celebrity friends which include Khloe, Kourtney, and Kim Kardashian. I wonder who else will be there! With the “fourth sister,” Kris Jenner make her way to White Party? LOL. It’s going to be one hell of a 40th Birthday Party, that’s for sure.
From how they worded the announcement, I’m not certain that this is the official second surprise that they had yet to announce, but it very well could be. Earlier this week, it was announced that Carly Rae Jepsen was performing and that there was one surprise still in store. Are YOU going to White Party? If so, Adam and I will see you there!
