I have been missing The Buried Life on MTV and now with its cancellation, I’m sad that I won’t be able to enjoy the sexy boys on their cross-country adventures. However, that hasn’t stopped a few of them from appearing online in new videos like this, created by Dave Lingwood and Duncan Penn.
The two tackled Rihanna’s epic dance floor track, We Found Love and nailed the video’s treatment to a T. Not a detail is spared from the projections on the walls to the bathtub tears. However, instead of being addicted to drugs, they’re addicted to candy.
We watch as both Duncan and Dave crave Bubble Tape and even carve out lines of sugar to snort. In my books, this video gets an A for effort and an A+ for creative genius. You won’t be disappointed by this one.
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.
It’s finally arrived! After the track dropped as the second official single from Talk That Talk all the way back in November, You Da One has finally received it’s accompanying video. Rihanna had leaked a few pics from the shoot prior to it’s release but none of it lived up to what we were about to experience with this video.
Pulling a little bit of inspiration from her Rude Boy video and capitalizing on the popularity of the lyric video, Rihanna delivers once again, a unique video to compliment the single. Directed by Melina Matsoukas (who also directed her video for We Found Love), the duo shot the video in Northern Ireland almost a month ago.
The video features Rihanna channeling some Clockwork Orange and images leaked from the set earlier this month of her rocking a blonde bob and holding a black cane infront of a pink background. Too bad the resulting video is all done in mostly black & white. The motif of newspapers rings through as well which was the design of most of her Talk That Talk deluxe edition linear notes. Check out Rihanna’s new vid below.
After weeks of speculation, it turns out the rumors are true. One of Bravo’s “Real Housewives” is heading over to McKinley High. Rachel Berry (Lea Michele) and Kurt Hummel (Chris Colfer) confirmed it during their appearance on Andy Cohen’s “Watch What Happens Live“. Before I reveal who’s guest starring for at least two episodes, I’m going to make you squirm a bit and discuss other Glee-related news.
When “Glee” returns in the New Year, it’ll do it in style. The January 17th episode, titled “Yes/No” will be a bit of a “Grease” homage, with scenes filmed at the actual high school featured in the hit musical film. Also in the episode, Mr. Schue pops the big question to longtime love Emma. Will she say “yes” or “no”? Ergo, the episode title.
On the Trouty Mouth front, Sam joins McKinley High’s synchronized swim team to win back Mercedes. Side note. How is the Glee Club the joke of the school when they also have a synchronized team? LOL. Sam’s new extracurricular activity involves the aforementioned “Housewife“. Check out the deets below.
Adele topped both Rolling Stone and Billboard’s year end charts. Rihanna reigned supreme on Facebook’s year end lists. While topping those lists are all well and good, everyone wants to be number one when it comes to earning bank. As Cuba Gooding Jr. said in “Jerry Maguire“… SHOW ME THE MONEY. Both Adele and Rihanna earned some decent moolah in 2011, but fell short compared to the Top 3 earning women in music. Check out what how much of your money these female superstars raked in.
10. Alicia Keys and Britney Spears ($10 million each)
9. Adele ($18 million)
8. Celine Dion ($19 million)
7. Carrie Underwood ($20 million)
6. Pink ($22 million)
5. Rihanna ($29 million)
4. Beyonce Knowles ($35 million)
Adele’s “Rolling In The Deep” may have earned #1 honors on both Rolling Stone Magazine and Billboard Magazine’s 2011 year end lists, but the British songbird is barely hanging on to Facebook’s Memology 2011 list. Instead, it’s everyone’s favorite Bajan songstress, Rihanna that reigns supreme. The 23-year-old singer proved she’s tops when it comes to social networking site, Facebook. I must say that I’m a little surprised she beat out other more tech-savvy artists like Lady Gaga, Katy Perry or even Justin Beiber. Congrats to the “Disturbia” singer.
For Facebook’s year-end recap, Rihanna topped both its music lists. Firstly, the singer’s latest hit single, “We Found Love” earned the honor of being the most-listened song of the year on the Mark Zuckerberg-owned website. The other accolade Robyn Rihanna Fenty earned was that her Fan Page was deemed the fastest growing page of 2011. Facebook didn’t reveal how many new “likes” she received this year, but her total number of fans is at a whopping 47,000,000. See who RiRi beat out on both lists below. Some entries might surprise you. I know it did for me.
Even though I played ‘Battleship‘ as a kid (both the original and the electronic version with sound effects), I still wasn’t sold on the this upcoming action film after the first teaser trailer came out late this summer. The film, starring Rihanna in her first big movie role, as well as some hot male stars including Taylor Kitsch, Alexander Skarsgard and Josh Pence, takes place at sea (obviously) where a war takes place between humans and aliens. Well, aliens that look like Transformers, to be more exact.
The trailer sets the scene with intense sound and very few words: “The Ocean. Vast. Unexplored. The Perfect Place. To Hide.”
Comparing the first trailer to this one is like night and day. This trailer really shows how amazing of an action flick ‘Battleship’ will be.
I have to preface this article by saying that this mash-up is UNREAL. At the end of every year, we expect to hear a mash-up courtesy of DJ Earworm throwing together all of the top songs we listened to throughout the past 12 months. However, a new mash-up surfaced on social media yesterday that beat Earworm to the punch and I have to say, it’s definitely being added to my playlist ASAP.
Compiled by Mashup-Germany with a video edited by Panos T, the track is four minutes of pure musical ecstasy. There are literally too many moments for me to pinpoint which are my favorite. Britney’s Till The World Ends is pretty prevalent throughout the entire song along with Adele’s Rolling In The Deep but you still have room to fit in every other song you were addicted to from January to December.
If you’ve never heard of Mashup-Germany, you should check out some of their other amazing mixes like their Top Of The Pops 2010 and my personal favorite Hey Jude, I’ll Be There. Oh ya, their Rolling In Sweet Dreams which is an Adele and Eurythmics collision is also pretty sick. Check out their current year end offering below.
