I was about 87% sure it was going to be me this time around. Well I guess there’s always next year…
Beyoncé has two halos?
My roommates and I are big fans of music video countdowns and since MTV has forgotten it’s a music channel, the Fuse network has taken its place in our hearts.
Even though I have previously posted about “Halo,” I was educated last night by the lady on Fuse and now feel compelled to share my new knowledge with you.
Side note: While Kanye thinks that Beyoncé’s best video of all time was “Single Ladies,” I’m going to have to disagree and go with “Halo.”
Anywho, last night, while watching the 20 sexiest videos by singer/actress Beyoncé, I learned that there was an alternative music video for “Halo.” Next thing I knew I was experiencing whiplash over the fact that I didn’t know this. To my surprise, the info was legit.
Now for my comments on the piece.
As usual Lady B looks fierce and the gentleman in the video is on point.
I actually like this version more than I like the official version. I just wish I knew why Beyoncé’s man was being chased and killed by a dog. Along with that, why was money thrown across the forest ground? I’m thinking there was some mob action involved.
In the end, it doesn’t matter what Beyoncé did or didn’t do in the musical video version of “Halo.” She could have sat in a dark room and mouthed the words for all I cared…I would never shut Beyoncé out.
P.S. stay tuned for Topless Tuesday!
Typically I am okay with the fact that some people aren’t as diligent as I am in terms of celebrity gossip/news. But if you were unaware that the most anticipated birth since (I’m going to say it) Suri Cruise happened this past Saturday…you should be ashamed of yourself!
The top story since late Saturday evening has been the arrival of Ivy Blue Carter or Blue Ivy Carter. From the massive amount of creeping I have done on the interweb, no one has confirmed the name 100%. E! News is on Team Blue Ivy while Perez Hilton is on Team Ivy Blue. Personally, my pick is Ivy Blue, but I’m excited either way.
I have been waiting for this birth for quite sometime. I remember back in 2010, there was a legitimate rumor going around that Queen B was with child. That year I was working a full-time job…shocking, right? Hearing this news, I proceeded to pack up my desk and said the following to my wonderful boss:
Kari: “I have to go home early today.”
Boss: “Is everything okay?”
Kari: “Yes, Beyoncé is pregnant and I need to go to home to prepare.”
Needless to say, I was not allowed to leave the office early that day.
Flash-forward from 2010 to Aug. 28, 2011 at the MTV Music Awards…my dreams came true. Beyoncé officially revealed that she was pregnant during her performance of “Love on Top.” It was a beautiful thing.
It’s being reported that Mr. and Mrs. Hova spent $1.3 million on renting out the entire baby floor at the Lenox Hill Hospital in New York so Queen B could deliver her baby in private. Let me tell you, my mom chartered the same amount of security for my birth…it comes with the territory.
Checking in under the name Ingrid Jackson, Beyoncé and Jay-Z required that tape being placed over hospital security cameras and all employees turn in their cell phones to ensure no pictures would be leaked.
Since the power couple is super private, I don’t see them releasing pictures or news about the birth anytime soon. Therefore, I will share with you the one thing I am praying happened during this magical moment…Ivy Blue (or Blue Ivy) came out with the HOVA sign up.
Congrats to Beyoncé and Jay-Z! P.S. I have never babysat a small baby before, but I have taken care to two cats at once. That makes me qualified I’m sure!
Side note: Perez has flip-flopped to Blue Ivy.
Rihanna released her sixth studio album “Talk That Talk” Nov. 21, 2011. Let me tell you…I was pumped.
When Rihanna releases an album, she typically talks about the important things in life. For example, Umbrellas, S&M and the dangerous game of Russian Roulette…all important factors in my life, as they should be in yours. Needless to say, I was looking forward to the wisdom of her sixth CD.
The first track released off this album was “We Found Love” = superb choice. While the song is upbeat, the lyrics tell a different and sad story. As for the music video, it showed the masses that RiRi is still in pain. I feel bad for the Chris Brown look-a-like…do you think he gets heckled on the street?
Side note: I’ll see you in hell Chris Brown!
When the album was released, I like to chose the songs that should be released as singles. I was seriously campaigning for “Talk that Talk” ft. Hova and was slightly disappointed when I heard “You Da One” playing on the radio a few days ago. Sad face.
After going through a period of denial, depression and recovery, I’ve have accepted “You Da One” as the second single, but realized that I don’t have to like it.
My goal with this post is to start an Internet movement/revolution in order to get “Talk that Talk” ft. Hova as the third single off RiRi’s album.
Here are some reasons why:
- It features Mr. Hova
- You can play this song extremely loud in your Honda and look like a boss
- Rihanna taught me how to count from 1 to 4…thanks boo
- Jay-Z says the word “pee”
- Rihanna chants at the end…and who doesn’t love a good chant
Favise Lyrics: “I’mma get it right on the first try for you” (As do I Rihanna, as do I ).
Rihanna – I know once you read this, you will be convinced to release “Talk That Talk” as your third single. All I ask in return is to be featured in the music video. I’ve been working on my Pop, Lock and Drop It and I think I’ve finally hit the nail on the head. See you on set girl!
The year was 2009 and it was one of the best years of my life so far. While there are a multitude of reasons that this time period was fucking awesome, I am only legally allowed to reveal a few:
- I was FINALLY of age to enter a bar without the threat of being kicked out
- It was my senior year in college…and I graduated on time…point Kari
- Spring Break ’09…details to follow in my highly anticipated book
- Beyoncé released “Halo”
A track on her third studio album, “I Am…Sasha Fierce,” Beyoncé really hit the nail on the head with this song. Every time I listen to this jam I just want to sway back and forth and pretend Jay-Z is my husband.
As usual, Beyoncé ran right up to the top of the Billboard Hot 100. “Halo” debuted at number 93 and scooted up to number five…Yeaaa B.
Favises lyrics: “Remember those walls I built/Well, baby they’re tumbling down”
Whenever I hear “Halo,” there is one particular moment that I always flash back to. It was the mid-morning of May 2, 2009…the day my world stopped and I graduated from college. From 11:03 a.m. until 2:56 p.m., I played “Halo” on repeat and cried in my bedroom. This is when I realized the party was over and I was about to crash into real world. So I would like to thank Beyoncé for getting me through that rough time and making me feel pretty.
As for the music video, Sasha is Fierce…I wish I could wear a black leotard, tights and heels as an outfit…don’t we all? Also, do you think B and Jay sit in a chair and stare at each other?
I’ve made a decision…decision made… “Halo” is in the lead to be my wedding song. That is, unless B. Spears covers it.
Thank you Beyonce.
I keep seeing these Match.com commercials which state that “1 in every 5 relationships begin online.” These days, online dating is becoming the norm…one reason why…we are busier than ever. This got me thinking that since celebrities are some of the busiest people, they might benefit from hopping online to find a date or whatever they’re into. I’ve decided to compose a post on which celebs would match up on Match.com.
Rihanna & Drake
As we all know, Beyoncé and Jay-Z currently hold the crown as royal couple of the hip-hop/R&B genres. Rihanna and Drake will have to settle for the princess and prince spot …for now.
These two are meant to be and they are slapping us in the face with their love every time they are within 10 feet of each other. If you’ve ever watched Rihanna’s video for “What’s My Name?” it’s like watching a newlywed couple…equally gross and cute…for us single ladies…more gross than cute.
While these two briefly dated last year, they decided to hold off because of that dumbass Rihanna previously dated (still haven’t forgotten Chris Brown). Rihanna also tried to date that sports guy, but he obviously wasn’t on her level. Hint, hint Rihanna…read the writings on the wall…they say DRAKE!
A few months ago, I heard these two lovebirds were spotted making out in Montreal – Drake is from Canada after all. Hopefully he took RiRi to meet the parents and got this ball rolling. Following the Montreal incident, it was reported that these two want to focus on their careers or want to date around or not in a place to commit…what I’m really hearing is blah, blah, blah. Stop beating around the bush and get it together!
First date location: an exotic island where Rihanna and Drake can get there grove on without the cameras.
Rihanna – I think Drake can go downtown with a girl exactly like you…he will make you feel like the only girl in the world.
Don’t fret – I’ll add more couples who would match up on Match.com throughout the day.
