When it comes to music, I have serious ADD. Rarely do I ever fully listen to an entire song. Just ask anyone who’s been with me on a road trip. It’s such a problem, I consciously make an effort to scroll the slider to the end to make sure my iTunes knows to increase the song’s play count. Otherwise, most of my library would have zero plays.
Naturally, with that in mind, mashups are my audio adderall. You can listen to numerous songs without ever having to skip or fastforward a track. This latest one titled “Royal Burn” is one of the best I’ve listened to recently. It features Ellie Goulding, Katy Perry and Lorde. Representing for the men are Macklemore, Mike Will Made It and OneRepublic. If you like what you hear, click on the download link and follow the instructions.
Earlier this week, Britney Spears debuted her new music video for “Work Bitch” and it featured the incredibly sexy, Richie Nuzzolese. As shown him above, you may recognize him from Katy Perry‘s “Last Friday Night” music video, among other things like the “Dirty Laundry” Andrew Christian video and more. We’ve also previously featured him in a Model Behavior post.
Aside from the music video, Nuzzolese is working on a YouTube project with some friends and is working on his own music. He’s posted a few covers on line and is busy recording his own original stuff as well. Other things you might recognize him from is a Renuzit commercial and if you watch the E! Network, he’s the guy promoting the Ross Matthews talk show.
Check out a bunch of videos as well as some exclusive never before released photos of the hottie below. Enjoy!
As most of you know, I wasn’t a huge fan of “Roar.” I was expecting much more from this new highly-hyped more mature era from Katy Perry. The track felt more like a leftover from Teenage Dream than anything else. However, with her new track, the 28-year-old finally delivers.
“Walking On Air” is the latest single off her Prism album. The former Mrs. Brand is serving major 90s deep house realness. She teams up with frequent Robyn collaborator Klas Ahlund. The result is pure dance perfection, and not in that David Guetta cookie-cutter EDM kind of way either. Check out the hot new track below.
It’s no secret that I haven’t warmed up to “Roar” as of yet, but that just changed thanks to a hot new remix by Jump Smokers. Sure, the chorus still drives me a little insane, but at least it’s more tolerable in this new version. The sped-up vocals with the new throbbing beat elevates Perry’s chart-topper into a hot club bangin’ anthem.
In a completely different direction, Perry goes all broody in a new track off Prism. She teams up with Juicy J on the urban-tinged “Dark Horse.” The beat during the verses is everything. All you booty-shaking twerkers will be itching to drop it like it’s hot during it. This should’ve been the lead cut given that her Prism era was supposed to be darker and more mature. “Roar” wasn’t that, but “Dark Horse” lives up to the promise. Give it a listen below.
Saturday Night Live is bringing in the big guns to open its 39th season. Tina Fey returns to her former stomping grounds to guest host the September 28 episode. This will mark her fourth time hosting the show. Joining her as the musical guest are Arcade Fire. Coincidentally enough, it’s also their fourth appearance on the show. Find out who else is heading to SNL in the coming weeks below.
After surviving a plane crash, Katy Perry finds herself stranded in the middle of the jungle. Forced to live off the land, the 28-year-singer finds the tiger within her and quickly adapts to her beautiful new surroundings. It’s Lost meets Destiny’s Child “Survivor” meets The Flintstones. It’s a bit over-the-top campy but it’s everything you’d expect from her.
While I’m not a fan of “Roar,” I have to give Perry credit. She goes all out with her latest visual. Whether you like her music or not, you can’t deny she creates entertaining music videos. More often than not, I find myself tuning in til the end of the clip. There’s usually a storyline, hot eye candy, and gorgeous visuals. Check out the clip below which was directed by Grady Hall and Mark Kudsi. It’s presented in Junglescope… whatever that means. Be sure to weigh in afterward watching it.
With Labor Day (the unofficial end to summer) just passed, appropriately enough Robin Thicke’s reign on top of the Billboard Hot 100 has finally ended. It’s hard to argue the fact that “Blurred Lines” was the song of the summer given its incredible 12 week run. After two weeks in the runner-up slot, Katy Perry’s “Roar” overtakes Thicke’s huge global hit. “Roar” becomes Perry’s eighth No. 1 of her career.
I thought it was the perfect time to look back at her career and rank all her chart toppers. For me, “Teenage Dream” is by far her best. Like leaps and bounds. No matter what version, remix or cover by another artist, the track is a winner. I never thought, Perry could release a more irritating single than “E.T.,” but she has. While clearly millions have warmed up to “Roar,” I still find it utterly irritating. Maybe I’ll change my tune in a couple of months, but currently, it’s my least favorite track by Katy. Check out how all her other hits rank.
If you’ve been waiting with bated breath for the “Roar” music video, you’ll be happy to know it’s just around the corner. Katy Perry revealed she’ll be premiering the clip on Thursday September 5, which means it’ll probably leak roughly around Tuesday ;)
Along with the announcement, the 28-year-old singer unveiled a poster promoting it. She’s pictured channeling Tarzan and Mowgli as she swings on vines in the jungle. Speaking of jungle, her visual will be presented in junglescope… whatever that means.
If you haven’t checked out the video teaser, check it below. I hate to admit it, but I’m sorta looking forward to it. I’m living for the retro vibe of the poster. It’s very old school Hollywood.
