Jesse McCartney Shakes It In New Music Video

In: Donovan, Music

If you’re a regular reader of the site, by now you know I have an affinity for my R&B divas. You’re also aware I’m a secret lover of boy bands, if you saw my NKOTBSB post. But what you probably didn’t know is, I have an inexplicable adoration for Jesse McCartney. I blame my five years working at a teen online magazine where I picked up some nasty habits there. “The Cheetah Girls“, “Ashley Tisdale“, “Degrassi: The Next Generation” and the aforementioned McCartney to name a few. Too bad, worker’s compensation, didn’t cover this type of occupational hazard.

Back in the day, we covered the tween super-sensation heavily as he was a popular topic with our main demographic. I even went to a Jesse Mac concert in Seattle courtesy of his label, where I was literally one of five guys there. I heavily considered walking out, but my co-worker convinced me to stay. Sufficed to say, I slowly began to appreciate the blond heartthrob and his music.

The now 23-year-old is back with a more mature sound. It’s still poppy, but has a more grown-up and sexy feel to it. “Shake” is the lead cut from his forthcoming album, “Have It All” which drops on December 28, 2010. It was produced by DJ Ammo and has hit the Billboard Hot 100 Chart and steadily rising.

So I finally wrapped up the penultimate novel from Stieg Larsson’s trilogy series, The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest. I have to admit that I am extremely happy that I persevered through this series after my initial, rather negative reaction to the first book in the series, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. As of late I have opened my mind to alternative subject matter and challenged myself to read on through subjects that often stun me emotional, or cause me to recoil due to the graphic nature of the simple words on paper. Granted, it has been a personal challenge inflicted by yours truly; however, I am quite proud of myself for pushing my comfort levels and coming out on the other side a changed man.

Dramatic words, yes, but not far fetched when considering the tone of voice and series of events that unfold in this third novel of the series. Over the course of the last few books I’ve read I would constantly cast my glaze to the stack of books awaiting my attention that included Larsson’s final piece of literature. I was desperate to learn what beheld Lisbeth Salander and Mikael Blomkvist on this seemingly final venture. The constant barrage of men hating men (and women), savage bodily harm and murderous rage oozed through every page, sentence after sentence and for once I was able to channel my curiosity to make it through to the final chapter. For those of you not familiar with the storyline of this trifecta of brilliance, beware it is not for the faint of heart.

Is Meaghan Martin the new Cady Herron? Is Jennifer Stone the new Regina George? Is Maiara Walsh the new Gretchen Weiners? Um probably not. Paramount Pictures just released the trailer for the highly unexpected and unwarranted sequel to the hugely popular hit, “Mean Girls“. That movie not only made Lindsay Lohan a bonafide star but spawned a whole whack load of quotes our group have been using for years. We even did a parody as one of our first posts ever on Homorazzi.com

The sequel is directed by former “thirtysomething” actress, Melanie Mayron and features a new generation of “plastics” and “anti-plastics” fighting it out for high school supremacy. Besides the title, the only thing this film has in common with the original is Tim Meadows, who reprises his role as Principal Duvall. Beyond that, it doesn’t even look worthy to be associated with the hilarious original. Not only is it straight-to-dvd, which means crappy movie with a small budget, but it looks so boring, lacks that signature biting wit and delicious “meanness”. Watch the trailer below and you’ll see what I mean.

Oprah continued the insanity today with Part 2 of her Ultimate Favorite Things. How can she top the 3-D Televisions, diamond watches, and seven day cruise (to name a few) from last episode? HA! This is Oprah. She can, she will, and she did.

Just like Part 1, the audience has no idea that they are at her Favorite Things episode. Oprah asks them, “I’m so exhausted from that first show we did. Were you really ticked off—be honest—when you saw people leaving with their loot?”

“I was pissed!” one peeved lady said in the audience.

“Everyone else is saying no,” Oprah tells her.

“They’re lying,” the woman responds. “That was a heroes show, this is a heroes show…we all deserve it.”

Just then, an ornament falls down the stairs. Oprah then says, “What’s this? I’ve got a leftover ornament. … Actually, it’s beginning to look a lot like…favorite things!” AND THE MADNESS BEGAN!!!

YES! Finally another video from Ryan James Yezak, the brilliant videographer who has created some insanely incredible gay video parodies for our enjoyment. His last one was Katy Perry’s Peacock, which I loved, but I think this one tops it. He’s beat Kesha to the punch by coming out with this video before her official one (hurry up already, Kesha!)

The editing is so well done and all of the effort put into choreography and costume certainly comes through. From guys kissing, to a sexy teacher teaching her students that homosexuality is a sin, to superheroes dancing, the video is full of flesh, fun, and all things fabulous.

I hope Kesha gives them a special shout out! Keep up the good work boys!

Justin Bieber was the big winner at last night’s “American Music Awards” winning everything he was nominated for, but who was the winner on the red carpet? Let’s take a closer look. Traditionally, music awards bring out more adventurous dressing than other awards shows. And for that, I am thankful. It’s far more interesting to pick out the fashion hits and misses. Like beauty, fashion is highly subjective. Just look at Project Runway. Sometimes, I’m completely boggled on who the judges pick to win and go home.

I’ve picked five nominees for Homorazzi’sBest Dressed” and “Worst Dressed” honors. In several instances, I shocked myself on who I picked. Perennial worst dressed offenders surprised me with uncharacteristic good taste, while others disappointed. Check out the candidates below and help crown a winner.

Advice From A Cartoon Princess: Snow White

In: Patrick, Random Reads, Videos

A while back, I shared with you some advice for teen girls from The Little Mermaid. Now, The Second City Network is back with another amazeballs video teaching teen girls some more important life lessons. This time, Snow White shares some life lessons based on her experiences.

From living with the seven dwarfs, to cooking & cleaning, to dealing with the evil witches, Snow White always knows just what to do. The video stars Second City grad, Danielle Uhlarik. Watch out for this funny lady – she’s hilarious and I wouldn’t be surprised if we end up seeing her as part of the SNL cast soon.

Is It Wrong I Loved NKOTBSB’s AMA Performance?

In: Donovan, Music

I’m writing this post in hopes that I’m not alone in feeling this. Seriously, how UH-MAZING was last night’s closing performance. Throughout the 3-hour American Music Awards, I was mostly underwhelmed. Sure, I enjoyed Rihanna, Usher, Black Eyed Peas, but there wasn’t that ONE stand-out performance that would have everyone talking the next day. That is, until the final act of the extravaganza. NKOTBSB rocked that shizz out.

When I first heard the signature boy band of the 80s (New Kids on the Block) was teaming up with one of the hottest boy bands of the 90s (The Backstreet Boys) for an upcoming tour, I didn’t know how to take it. At first, it just seemed like a cash grab with former teen heartthrobs going through a collective midlife crisis trying to re-capture their youth. Boy did they shut me up. During segments of their performance last night, I found myself giddier than a tween girl. I wasn’t alone. Did you see those fans in the audience? Especially the lead singer of Train singing along with the songs and Ke$ha enjoying the boy band fest. How hilarious was that?
