Who’d You Rather: Flowers VS Saporta

In: Music, Totally GAY!, Tyrell

Good Wednesday everyone. Who’s ready for our dose of Who’d You Rather? Hipsters get ready, because this one is for you. I’m setting up this battle royale between lead singer of The Killers, Brandon Flowers and front man to Cobra Starship, Gabe Saporta. Both men are good looking, there is no denying that. However, the two of them couldn’t be more different when it comes to their lives outside of music. Let’s take a look.

Brandon Flowers known for his role as lead singer to The Killers is the youngest of six children and moved around quite a bit until he finally graduated from high school in Las Vegas. Brandon is married to his wife Tana Brooke Mundkowsky and they have three beautiful boys. A fun fact about Mr. Flowers is that he is an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and is even featured on their website Mormon.com.

Gabe Saporta known for leading the synthpop group Cobra Starship was born in Uruguay and is the oldest of three kids in his family. When he was four, his family relocated to Queens and he finally ended up in New Jersey living with his father. As of earlier this year, Gabe is dating fashion designer Erin Fetherston. Fun fact about Mr. Saporta, he is vegetarian, active member of PETA and best friends with Fall Out Boy’s, Pete Wentz.

You know a little about the boys but now, it’s time to make it count. Check out the photo evidence below and then pick which one you’d rather take home to momma… not literally but you know what I mean.

Kelly Clarkson Does Christmas

In: Music, Tyrell

It looks like releasing a Christmas tune, album or EP is the new trend for musicians this holiday season and reports are coming out saying the Christmas music is actually boosting radio ratings. So with that, I’d like to share a Christmas classic, revamped by one of my favorites, Kelly Clarkson. Instead of taking a standard and making it a Top 40/Pop track, Kelly took the jazz route to keep it traditional and the result is amazing!

Kelly’s vocals sound absolutely amazing on the track. Even though we’ve heard this song covered many times, no one can deny that Kelly has a voice to give anyone goosebumps. So why a sudden itch to record a Christmas track? It’s actually part a special iTunes package Kelly and her team are putting together; a new EP with Kelly taking new spins on old Kelly songs. WHAT?! This sounds amazing!

With that comes the addition of one Christmas tune. Kelly even said she can’t wait to write a Christmas album. Working on one song was such a tease. I personally would love a Christmas album from the former Idol superstar. Give a listen to I’ll Be Home For Christmas after the jump.

How I missed this Britney Spears morsel last week is beyond me? On Spears’ 30th birthday, fansite BreatheHeavy.com gave Brit’s fans a gift in the form of new music. I should’ve probably air quoted “new” since the track seems more like leftover scraps from a previous studio album rather than new material. Still, if you’re a fervent Spears fan… any new material is music to your ears.

“This is a girl who stays strong through the toughest of times, yet continues to carry on with a positive attitude and inspires millions of people around the world. She is truly my favorite artist and gives me strength and passion for craft. Britney gave me this song ‘Love 2 Love U’ several years ago, and am very happy to be able to share it with fans today. Happy Birthday, Brit. We love ya.” – BreatheHeavy.com

Love 2 Love U” is heavily inspired by Madonna’s huge 1987 hit, “La Isla Bonita“. Not only does it sample the beat, but also borrows heavily from the song’s lyrics. Madge’s version was island-inspired, and so is Brit’s. Her take seems to be more Caribbean-infused though. I guess, Brit was listening to a lot Rihanna, Sean Paul and Sean Kingston at the time. Check out the previously unreleased track below.

Last week, I shared with you Mattel’s Nicki Minaj Barbie doll being auctioned off to raise funds for Project Angel Food. Turns out, there’s also another celebrity-inspired doll on CharityBuzz.com you can bid on. Just like Minaj, this singer has a propensity to don colorful wigs. So much so, this singer is the face of GHD Wig’s holiday ad campaign.

Just like Nicki’s version, this celeb doll is meticulously made with the greatest attention to detail made. The stunning cupcake dress is made with 70 hand-painted mini-cupcakes with a glittered bodice. The fishnet stockings are even adorned with Swarovski crystals. Bidding has started at $1,000 and has the same $15,000 estimated value as Minaj’s. See which singer is the latest to receive a Barbie Doll treatment.

New Releases Out This Week: December 6

In: Charge It, Movies, Music, Tyrell

How goes your Christmas shopping? If you’re like me, you haven’t even started. Honestly, I’ve always been more of a last minute type of shopper. For those of you who are a little bit more on the ball than I, here are this week’s new releases. There are a few great movies and some great music hitting the shelves this week that are the perfect stocking stuffers; especially this week’s feature release.

Amy Winehouse’s highly anticipated posthumous release Lioness: Hidden Treasures is finally here in it’s entirety; a collection of previously unreleased tracks, alternate versions of existing classics, as well as a couple of brand new Amy compositions.

Following her tragic passing, some of the producers and musicians who worked closely with Amy Winehouse, among them Mark Ronson and Salaam Remi, spent time listening over the many recordings that Amy had made, before, during, and after the release of Frank and Back To Black. It was said by all who worked with Amy that she never sang or played a song the same way twice. It quickly became apparent to Salaam and Mark that they had a collection of songs that deserved to be heard, a collection of songs that were a fitting treatment to Amy the artist and, as importantly, Amy the friend.

Check out more new releases including music from the cast of Glee, smooth tunes from Robin Thicke and some hilarious movie watching courtesy of The Hangover Part 2. All of them featured down below.

Beyonce’s Dad Drops Music Video For New Girl Group

In: Donovan, Music

Last week, I first shared Matthew Knowles’ brand new girl group, From Above, with you. Beyonce’s dad is hoping his new army of British singers can achieve the same level of success that Destiny’s Child did. Will lightning strike twice for him? Maybe, but it’ll be hard without the likes of Beyonce or Kelly Rowland in the group. That being said, he’s certainly taken a few moves out of their playbook and re-appropriated them for From Above.

Firstly, the group’s name has the same celestial heavenly sound as Destiny’s Child. Secondly, he’s enlisted his ex-wife Tina Knowles to style the ladies for the music video, which BTW was not a wise move. Remember some of that tacky shizz DC used to wear back in the day? Now Tina’s styling choices are even worse. From Above’s look is an amalgamation of House of Dereon rejected designs with leftover wardrobe scraps from Kelly, Michelle and Beyonce.

But by far the most blatant rip-off Matthew Knowles has used for his new venture is stealing Beyonce’s signature “Single Ladies” hand gestures. Apparently plagiarism runs in the family. LOL. Watch the video and you’ll see what I mean. It’s a shame that Knowles hasn’t updated his managerial repertoire for a new decade. I actually don’t mind “Not The Same Girl“. Sure, it’s a bit Danity Kane meets The Saturdays but has a catchy beat and solid vocals. Check out From Aboves’ debut music video below.

Are you all anticipating the release of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo as much as I am? Director David Fincher who gave the brilliance that is The Social Network is ready to blow our minds with the explosive and edgy film and I cannot wait to see Rooney Mara as Lisbeth. Her physical transformation for the role is astonishing.

What’s even more exciting is that Fincher has teamed up with Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross once again to soundtrack the film. If you recall, the team was won an Oscar for their synth heavy and percussive soundtrack for The Social Network that literally made me leap out of my seat every time that droning bass kicked in. Here is what Trent had to say about his latest work.

“We laughed, we cried, we lost our minds and in the process made some of the most beautiful and disturbing music of our careers. The result is a sprawing three-hour opus that I am happy to announce is available for pre-order right now for as low as $11.99. The full release will be available in one week – December 9th.”

However, Christmas has come early and the team has released six tracks from the upcoming soundtrack for free. The songs available are so dark and mysterious that they kind of make you squirm just listening to them. Only one song really has the same melodic feel that Reznor gave us with his Social Network OST but the results are still brilliant. Trying to go for that Oscar again perhaps?

Madonna Reveals Her “Masterpiece”

In: Music, Tyrell

I cannot wait for Madonna’s new album next year. After we got a taste of Gimme All Your Love, I was hooked and ready for some more Madge. Now, a new song has hit the web and it reminds us all of the American Life days. The song is titled Masterpiece and will be featured in the final credits from her directorial debut, W.E.. The song is about falling in love with someone who is like a work of art. The lyrics sing out:

“If you were the Mona Lisa. you’d be hanging in the Louvre.
Everyone would come to see you, you’d be impossible to move.”

William Orbit produced the down-tempo track which has been confirmed to appear on her upcoming album. I think it’s a nice addition in comparison to what we’ve already heard which makes me think this album will be more eclectic in comparison to her dance heavy confessions and her hodge-podgey Hard Candy. Give a listen to Masterpiece below and tell us what you think.
