American Idol 11: St. Louis Auditions

In: Adam, TV Shows

THE AUDITIONS ARE FINALLY OVER!! Well, after this final review that is. Typically, the loyal viewers of Idol fall into two groups: those who like the try outs and those who prefer to jump on the wagon once the messes have been sorted. I have always been one to like finding the stars early, before the producers, stylists and makeup men and ladies take hold and change everything about them. So, as we hit the final audition city of St. Louis, I have high hopes that maybe SOMEthing worth a snuff will show up.

A pretty established city for talent and performers who do well enough in past seasons, I’m slightly optimistic going into this but considering the awfulness of the last 6 cities (save for Galveston), that optimism is VERY limited. So, let’s take a deep breath, take a few shots of whatever says at least 80 proof and dive into this the final night of what might go down as the lamest series of auds ever recorded.

If you watched “American Idol” last night, you saw a 90-second preview of Madonna’s upcoming music video for “Give Me All Your Luvin’“. If not, then you can catch the full version right here. How is it? Simply put, it is fantastic and has the potential of being one of Madonna’s better visuals. It’s her just having fun and no pretension in sight. The second the preview ended, I wanted more. That side-walking camera angle was brilliant. Thankfully, the full-length clip has now been released.

Firstly, Madonna looks absolutely amazing. The singer may be 53-years-old, but she doesn’t look a day over 40. Talk about the magic of good lighting. When I first heard the song, I wasn’t going crazy over it like so many people. That said, video has made me fall in love with the track. That speaks volumes on exactly how Madge has masterfully used the music video medium to define her career. Definitely one of the pioneers.

For their parts, both Nicki Minaj and M.I.A. look great as well. The latter usually looks unpolished, but she’s got it going on here. Props to both of them for showing respect to Madge by staying back and just cheering her on.

Top 10 Most Desirable Women Of 2012

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Patrick

Although most of us are probably more interested in the most desirable men of 2012, we can all appreciate the beauty of Hollywood’s most stunning women. Popular men’s site, AskMen.com has just released their extensive list of their Top 99 picks for the “Most Desirable Women of 2012,” as voted by their readers. Of course I’m not going to rehash their entire list, but I thought I’d share the Top 10 list with you. “The ladies of 2012 aren’t just the next pretty faces: They’re smart, strong women who offer the complete package,” says AskMen.com.

Last year, Gossip Girl’s Blake Lively topped the list as most desirable. This year, she’s not in the top 10 anymore and the number 3 on the list from last year has become numero uno. Some famous names include Glee’s Lea Michele at number 19, Gaga at 18, as well as Katy Perry at 16, falling from number 8 last year. It may seem that many guys like them young, with 21-year-old Emma Watson at number 17 and 19-year-old Selena Gomez at number 14, but the woman who came out on top is 39 years old. Find out who the guys are drooling over most by checking out the Top 10 list below.

Channeling Frankenstein’s monster, David Guetta and Nicki Minaj tell quite the story in their new Turn Me On music video. David plays the role of a mad scientist who is creating Nicki, he turns out to be one of his most beautiful creations. Once alive, Minaj takes a stroll through the village and all the others (who are more mannequin-like) don’t approve. Cue the witch-hunt.

While I love that the music video is very effects driven, I feel like they rushed through the storyline and should have extended the song and video to really tell the whole story. However, one of the highlights is when the female mannequins strip off Guetta’s flesh revealing his chainmail body frame. Wow. Guetta’s packing quite the body at 43-years-old. However, as a whole, the teasers made me want more from this video. Check it out below.

Nicki Minaj Drops “Stupid Hoe” Video

In: Music, Tyrell, Videos

Before Christmas, Nicki Minaj dropped the ultimate diss track on all her haters titled Stupid Hoe. I can’t help but think that more than 75% of the disses are aimed at long time enemy, Lil Kim. Now, the track has received the video treatment and while it’s simpilar than a lot of her previous videos, it hits the nail on the head and I love it.

With a little help from Hype Williams, the vibrant and colorful palette of the video really showcases Minaj’s crazy sense of style and musicology. From the opening sequence of watching her lips and background change color to the rapper working it out in a bright yellow cage meant for tigers, there is no question that Minaj is the reigning Queen of Rap right now. As she puts it in one of her lyrics, “I’m Angelina, you Jennifer – c’mon b*tch, you see where Brad at.”

This track is set to appear on Nicki’s new album Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded which hits shelves on Valentines Day. How appropriate. Until then, enjoy the flashy Stupid Hoe video below.

Beyonce Reveals Her 10 Favorite Songs of 2011

In: Donovan, Music

It seems like everyone and their dog has a year end list these days. Why should celebrities be immune to succumbing to this trend and not share their favorites via a Top 10 list? Since Beyonce is major preggers right now and probably bored out of her mind, she decided to occupy herself by compiling her favorite 10 songs of 2011. According to a post on her official website, the “Irreplaceable” singer just couldn’t get enough of these tracks.

I have to admit the list sorta surprised me. The list is far more hip-hop than I would’ve expected. Sure, it includes her hubby Jay-Z but a few other rappers as well. Apparently, Bey has a major hard-on for Lil Wayne- he made the list three times. Someone sure likes to get their swagger on. That said, the list also included a few R&B tracks and a couple of surprises. Even Beyonce couldn’t leave Adele off her list. Because if she did, that would be some serious haterade. See what dominated the former Destiny’s Child singer’s iPod this past year. Speaking of DC, one of her bandmates also made the list. Find out who below.

10 Most Watched Music Videos On YouTube In 2011

In: Donovan, Music

The other day, Patrick wrote about the most viewed videos on YouTube in 2011. As you probably noticed, that list didn’t include music videos from artists from major music labels. Ergo, why Rebecca Black’s “Friday” topped that list and the likes of Katy Perry and Jennifer Lopez were nowhere to be seen in that Top 10 list.

As luck would have it, YouTube has a separate list for established artists or as they officially refer to it as, “Most Watched Videos From Major Music Labels Globally“. Man, that’s a mouthful. On this list, you’ll find most of your favorites and surprisingly a few notable omissions. Even though, Adele, Lady Gaga and Britney Spears have topped several year-end lists from Best Song to Best Artist to Best whatever, the trio are MIA on this one.

So who made it? Since it’s a global list, some entries may surprise you. For instance, Pitbull shows up in three spots. WTF, dude must have a huge following in all the Spanish-speaking countries. I was also a bit stunned, yet happy, to see Jessie J’s “Price Tag” on this list. Love that song. See what other music videos YouTube watchers watched over and over and over and over again in 2011 below.

Are you giving your head a big scratch at that title? As much as I love Britney Spears, I too am a little puzzled. Rob Sheffield who is the writer of their Pop Life blog just released his list of the Top 25 Songs of 2011. I assumed Adele would once again grace the top of the list. To my surprise, she didn’t even crack the Top 10. Yes, you read that correctly. Atop the list is one of Britney’s non-singles, How I Roll which is easily one of my least favorites from her Femme Fatale album.

Rob’s list is drastically different from the previously published Top Singles of 2011 also released by Rolling Stone. However, there are some tracks on the list that I do thoroughly enjoy that didn’t get much recognition on any year end lists or throughout the year. I am talking about tracks like Rewrite by Paul Simon and Beth/Rest by Bon Iver.

The biggest shock of the list for me is the insertion of Friday by Rebecca Black. I am sorry, but what? Yes, the track was a viral sensation and I’m sure there isn’t one person out there who doesn’t know the lyrics but seriously, #8 on the list? How did that happen? One thing is for sure, Rob enjoys himself some Nicki Minaj. She appears on three of the tracks in the full list. Check out this somewhat whack list of tracks below.
