NEW MUSIC: JASON DERULO - WATCHA SAY? ACOUSTIC VIDEO


Mr. Derulo is a 100% cutie and I will say I like him better without his braids.. Go on J-boog...I see you getting your grown man on! When I first heard this song I didn't pay it much attention, but after the first few times I began to really listen to it, and I do see this young brother has talent and the song now is one that is on my rotation. Jason released the video for the acoustic version of his pop hit this week and BLAKstar had to bring it to you!

LADY GAGA PERFORMS LIVE WITH KID CUDI

Lady Gaga performs live Poker Face with Kid Cudi for the opening of The Monster Ball Tour that stopped off in Montreal. While many feel (as well as I) that Lady Gaga is very "out there" I do like a lot of her music and think she is shaking up the music industry and makes it quite interesting. Needless to say her performances at the award shows leave everyone talking the morning after (including me).

REVIEW: JWORK LIMITED PREVIEW




Check out the full review after jump...

JANELLE MONAE - MOONWALKING FRONTWARDS

I was talking with a friend a week or so ago and the topic of Janelle Monae came up and how she is really just an amazing performer. (I STILL WANT TO SEE HER LIVE...*sigh*) I was asked if I saw how she not only can moonwalk backwards but also FORWARDS..my reply "NO WAY MAN". so I had to go look for myself. I am always just so amazed when I watch her videos that I don't think I ever noticed (SHAME ON ME.. Dear J.M. please forgive me!) If she isn't from the planet she has got to be one of the coolest aliens ever!

Peep the video below around 4 min & 12 sec into the video she does the reverse moonwalk. I'm saying and we thought MJ was just BAD for doing it period...she reversed it and has put a new spin on it..GET IT GIRL..

NEW MOVIE: BOOK OF ELI - DENZEL WASHINGTON

This looks interesting! I hope it's better than the Taking of Pellham 123 - I didn't care for that movie, seeing I fell asleep in it 3 times. Book of Eli is scheduled for a release Jan. 10, 2010 is the newest motion picture from the Hughes Brothers' Camp. The dynamic duo are known for several efforts - most notably Dead Presidents and Menace II Society. The Book of Eli stars some of Hollyweirds heavy hitters (other the face on the poster Denzel) Mila Kunis (voice of Meg Griffin on Family Guy and Jackie on That 70's Show), Gary Oldman (Sirius Black - in the Harry Potter series and James Gordon in the Dark Knight) and Jennifer Beals (Flashdance, The L word and recently a regular on the Fox series Lie To Me)

A little piece of Trivia - Denzel preformed all of his own stunts and was trained in martial arts by Bruce Lee's protégé Dan Inosanto.


The Plot VIA IMDB - A post-apocalyptic tale, in which a lone man fights his way across America in order to protect a sacred book that holds the secrets to saving humankind.

His first album was decent (in my opinion), from the other material I had heard him produce I expected a little more from his personal effort. From the looks of this video I would love to see him live. Ryan is on his way out with new sounds and from what I heard I think this might be what we've been waiting for.

MUSIC VIDEO: “NO SECURITY” - CROOKERS FEATURING KELIS






The song is different, the music video..not so much!

~♥Shené

I MISS: KELIS



I miss Kelis. Not the make up to break up with hubby bubby Nas. I miss Kelis - N.E.R.D.'esque blonde faded to a bright pink (yes I dyed my hair this color before and it was HOT...then I grew up lol) not quite understood and musically under appreciated Kelis circa the year 2000. Her first album Kaleidoscope was a heavily slept on CD. I was in college in ATL (CLARK ATLANTA people STAND UP) and was in love with her and only a few people shared my excitement for her music. Most thought she was crazy due to her first single I hate you so much right now. I thought it was genuis! The video, the song's concept spoke to me...call me angry but *shrug* I am sure we all can relate to what she was talking about. I revisit her first cd on a occasion and I am never disappointed and have grown to love and appreciate and understand it as the years pass. I suggest if you have not looked at the first CD Kaleidoscope in awhile (or ever..shame) then sit and listen to it...good music never dies..hence while we all still listen to Lauryn Hill (tear...that's a whole other blog). I decided to add two of my favorites from her freshman effort. Enjoy...And Dear Kelis..please come back and bring Lauryn with you...Please..I'll be your best friend (just don't tell Shené)

MUSIC MONDAYS: NO JAY-Z OR POP FOR MILEY


Oh Miley Cyrus... She does it again. Everyone should have heard her newest song by now, "Party in the U.S.A", blaring on the radio every hour. In the song, she references feeling out of place because she is "rockin' kicks" at an upscale Hollywood party, but is soon comforted when the DJ plays her "favorite song". A Jay-Z song. Here she admits to not knowing a SINGLE Jay-Z song, not liking pop music, and also sports a Native American halloween costume... Oh Miley... This video is a must see.

- BCon.



Rihanna: Te Amo?



So...I have a copy of the new CD from Rihanna and I am not ready to do a full evaluation of her CD - however I will say after a few half hearted listens I am not all that impressed (sigh-I expected a lot more after all the hype). There was only one song that has caught my attention immediately and that is Te Amo (I love you in spanish). The thing is the beat and the music gets me that everytime I listen the only words I hear are the infectious repetitive Te Amo. Ok so she is talking bout she love someone or someone loving her - no big deal. Welp lol I was talking to a friend about it and told them I really hadn't listened to the lyrics yet because the music arrangement (latin, regge, r&b feel) was somewhat hypnotic lol - but I knew I needed to listen when I heard her say something about Te amo she said to me. WAIT.. rewind!! -----> She said? Yes She said..  Well I dug a little further and it seems the song is stirring up some controversy. Ehh- s'ok I was thinking this might mean something ..until I found out she doesn't write her music...any of it #FAIL. Don't get me wrong I know there are lot of artists that use other people's words..but at some point I am going to need you to express yourself.. just my thoughts. Now that I know that Ri-Ri has not wrote any of the music on her album..or any of them----it kinda takes the validity of it away. Like when we all first heard Russian Roulette - thought wow...she is going through it.. po'thing. But umm Neyo wrote that...nice song Neyo.Well listen to the song below and tell me what you think...if you think anything.

MeaLee





Te amo, te amo
She says to me, I hear the pain in her voice
Then we danced underneath the candelabra she takes the lead
Thats when i saw it in her eyes its over

Chorus
Then she says te amo then she put her hand around me waist
I told her no,
She cries Te amo i told her im not gonna run away but let me go
My soul is crying, without asking why
I said te amo, wouldnt somebody tell me what she said
Dont it mean I love you
Think it means I love you
Dont it mean I love you

Te amo, te amo, shes scared to breathe
I hold her hand, i got no choice uhh
Pull me out on the beach, danced in the water, i start to leave
Shes begging me and asking why its over

Chorus
Then she says te amo then she put her hand around me waist
I told her no,
She cries Te amo i told her im not gonna run away, but let me go
My soul is crying, without asking why
I said te amo, wouldnt somebody tell me what she said
Dont it mean I love you
Think it means I love you
Dont it mean I love you
Think it means I love you

Then she says te amo then she put her hand around me waist
I told her no,
She cries Te amo i told her im not gonna run away but let me go
My soul is crying, without asking why
I said te amo, wouldnt somebody tell me what she said
Dont it mean I love you
Think it means I love you
Dont it mean I love you
Dont it mean I love you
Think it means i love you

MUSIC MONDAYS: JOHN MAYER

I love me some John Mayer. Forget he is the supposed Playboy to the Hollywood Lady Stars, if we get passed that, his music is beautiful. The raspy tone that his voice produces when he sings always gets my attention and his songs generally make me think, not just bob my head or sway my hips. He had me at Hello lol. If you are one of the few who hasn't given this singer the time a day..QUICK stop what you are doing and just listen to a few of his tunes.. I mean really listen and you will see that his vocal talent is just the surface of his artistry.

MUSIC MONDAYS: MIA CARRUTHERS

I got this video from one of my tweeples (person we talk to on twitter) Sketchbug. I must say the few times I watched the Taking The Stage an MTV reality show based at the School for Creative and Performing Arts in Cincinnati, Ohio, Mia was the main one I was interested in watching. Not because she shares a variation of my name (smile) but because she is really talented and when she won big talent show I felt out of the people they showed, she deserved to. I hope we get to hear more from her. Watch the video and lyrically and musically she is very talented!


About Taking The Stage: The program chronicles the lives of five high school students and their friends as they train for careers in the arts (via Wikipedia).

NEW MUSIC: "TELEPHONE" - LADY GAGA FEATURING BEYONCE







According to In Entertainment: 


We first heard Lady Gaga and Beyonce sing together, when they teamed up for the extended remix version of Beyonce’s sexy single “Video Phone.” And now, it appears that the two popular singers have teamed up again. Only this time, it is for one of Lady Gaga’s tracks. And the single we are talking about is “Telephone,” which according to neonlimelight.com, is the second single from Lady Gaga’s re-released debut album “The Fame Monster.” Does anyone notice a common thing between the two songs? Yes that’s right, they obviously both like singing about the popular communication device. Lady Gaga’s “Telephone,” was produced by Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins. These videos are going to be crazy!

NEW MOVIE: "CLASH OF THE TITANS"



Synopsis according to Wikipedia:
In the film, the ultimate struggle for power pits men against kings and kings against gods. But the war between the gods themselves could destroy the world. Born of a god but raised as a man, Perseus (Worthington) is helpless to save his family from Hades (Fiennes), vengeful god of the underworld.[4] With nothing left to lose, Perseus volunteers to lead a dangerous mission to defeat Hades before he can seize power from Zeus (Neeson) and unleash hell on Earth.[5] Leading a daring band of warriors, Perseus sets off on a perilous journey deep into forbidden worlds. Battling unholy demons and fearsome beasts, he will only survive if he can accept his power as a god, defy his fate and create his own destiny.
