Today, the Encore channel made my day and decided to show the classic film From Justin to Kelly. This 2003 musical romcom stars Kelly Clarkson (aka America’s Idol) and Justin Guarini (America’s runner up Idol) and it tells the tale of two spring breakers who are into each other, but obstacles keep popping up and block their love. It’s literally frustrating.
Don’t remember this spring break classic? The trailer will surely refresh your memory:
In case that piqued your interested, the movie is roaming around on the web just waiting to be watched for free! But before you type that in on Google, I’ll be honest, From Justin to Kelly didn’t do so well at the box office. The movie only grossed $4,922,166 to be exact. The critics considered this movie a total fail and it’s considered one of the worst movies of all time.
Now, I’d like to note that American Idol‘s legal team made Kelly and Justin go through with this. I’m hoping they had a blast and partied like they were on spring break…because some parts of this movie are a bit awkward. It’s totally clear that Kelly and Justin were not into each other in a romantical way whatsoever. But there is one good part to this movie…all the great musical numbers!
Here is my favorite jam from the movie’s soundtrack. It’s called Timeless and this clip is the duo performing it live!
I’d like to note that I’m not completely delusional. I know this movie isn’t the greatest, but can’t we all just sit down and enjoy it for what it is? You can’t blame Kelly either…it’s not like she tried out for an acting show, I mean Kelly Clarkson was on American Idol. Girl knows her strengths.
If you ever find yourself in a situation where this movie is on the TV, I’d recommend creating your very own drinking game. You can get real wild and enjoy America’s Idol.
P.S. If you want to know how I really feel about American Idol, please read my post! It really is all Seacrest’s fault.
Deep, deep down, I’ve always had a great disdain for the singing competition show American Idol. The great disdain did not start budding until season 2, when I realized the show was still continuing to search for an American Idol.
For those that do not remember, let’s go back, back to 2002 when American Idol debut on Fox. There was a girl named Kelly from Burleson, Texas who sang her face off for the judges (Randy, Paula and Simon) and really made an impression. Paula was probably in a self-induced coma, but at least Simon and Randy were paying attention.
Anywho, Kelly impressed America so much that she was crowned the winner of American Idol. If you aren’t picking up what I’m dropping, see the News Flash below.
News Flash: They found America’s Idol in season 1 and her name is Kelly Clarkson! Case closed, Idol found, show over.
Well I guess I’m the only one who thought that America needed one Idol. We are currently gearing up for season 13 and this season is equivalent to the beating of a dead horse. Let’s be real, J.Lo is doing it for the money, Harry Connick Jr. has nothing else going on now that Will & Grace is over and Keith Urban just wants to get a look at J.Lo’s backside.
As I said earlier, my great disdain for this show started budding in season 2 and has continued to grow until now. So why did I wait this long to express my feelings? Two words: Biggest Loser.
I took a hard right turn there, didn’t I? I’ll explain. One of the contestants on this season of Biggest Loser is Ruben Studdard. You may remember Ruben from season 2 of American Idol…he actually won. Well, Ruben was booted off Biggest Loser because he was below the red line. Sad, but totally fair.
Next thing you know, the Biggest Loser host made an announcement saying that Jillian Michael’s team cheated by drinking energy drinks and then Ruben magically appears. Now I’m all about Ruben getting on the healthy track, but I think this was totally unfair to the other contestants who did not win American Idol. Yea, I said it.
So this is the spark that reignited my hatred for American Idol. Don’t get me wrong, I am grateful every day for Kelly Clarkson and the way she was discovered, but the show is called American Idol and not American Idols. Now that I think about it, this is all Seacrest’s fault.
Ok, rant over. Thank you for listening. I’m ready for the angry fan mail.
Kelly Clarkson’s new music video for “Dark Side” has hit the Interweb!
While I was praying for “Let Me Down” to be the American Idol’s third single off “Stronger,” I’ll admit that “Dark Side” is a good jam…especially when you have the privilege to hear it live. You can really hear that famous Clarkson rage.
Anywho, the video isn’t a favorite of mine, but I have to support Team Clarkson and show it to my millions of followers! And by millions…I mean my mom, roommates and the cats <3
I have to say, Kelly is looking good! Get it girl.
In anticipation of Kelly Clarkson’s new show “Duets” debuting this Thursday…I am dedicating this Topless Tuesday to a singer on the show.
Side note: Yes, I know there are three other singers competing on “Duets,” but let’s be real… Kelly Clarkson is going to win because she is America’s Idol.
And no, Kelly Clarkson is not the Topless Tuesday gentleman…you pervert.
One of the most important things about Robin Charles Thicke is that he is the offspring of Alan Thicke aka Mr. Seaver from “Growing Pains.”
Robin hatched March 10, 1977 in beautiful Los Angles, Calif.
Let’s skip all the childhood history junk and talk about the most obvious thing about Robin Thicke. I’m pretty sure if you stare at him for too long, you will most likely go blind. He is just that handsome.
Robin started out in the music industry collaborating with other artists including Brandy, Jordan Knight, Xtina and Mya.
In 2002, Robin, going only by Thicke at that point, released his debut single “When I Get You Alone.” It didn’t make waves on the charts, but it did earn him enough clout to release a whole album.
“A Beautiful World” was Thicke’s first album and it debuted at number 152 of the Billboard charts. I guess America was blinded by Robin’s good looks that they couldn’t find the CD in the store. He has since released “The Evolution of Robin Thicke,” “Something Else,” “Sex Therapy” and “Love After War.”
He has also collaborated with many heavyweights in the rap/R&B world: Lil’ Wayne, Faith Evans, Pharrell, Jay-Z, and Nicki Minaj are just a few. Thicke also went on tour with Mrs. Hova…Beyonce herself.
Ok ladies…it’s time for me to ruin your day. Thicke married actress Paula Patton in 2005…they have a son Julian Fuego Thicke who was born in 2010. The really devastating part about all of this is that Robin began dating Paula when he was 16-years-old. He is beautiful and dedicated…ugh.
Robin – I’m excited to get to see you on a weekly basis. ABC is known for making poor choices (like when they cancelled “GCB“) but they finally made a right choice by plopping you on a singing competition show.
As you know, Tuesdays are typically meant to be topless…at least in my habitat. But this particular Tuesday is different. Why you ask? It’s the most dreaded time of year…Valentine’s Day. Dum, dum, dum.
I usually celebrate this holiday by playing bitter songs and heckling couples out my window. That hasn’t gone so well in the past, so I have decided to pour my bitterness onto my blog!
I thought the best way to effectively convey my bitterness was through song. Below are my personal favorite breakup/non demeaning to women songs that are perfect for all those lovers out there.
5. ‘Stronger’ – Britney Spears
Back in the day, Britney seemed more positive about love, but things change. After experiencing the most crushing breakup in the history of breakups and two marriages, Britney has been a card-carrying member of the bitter club since 2006. Out of the many songs my spiritual goddess has recorded, “Stronger” seems like the best jam to put on the Bitter Club soundtrack.
What I have learned from this jam: When you finally break up with that loser, you become stronger than yesterday and can bust out a sweet chair dance.
4. ‘Breakin’ Dishes’ – Rihanna
This song is epic for several reasons: I can get my dance on, I now know if my man is out until 3:30 a.m. I am legally allowed to break his dishes and burn his clothing and I don’t have to stop until I see police lights.
Rihanna – Thank you for this instruction manual.
3. ‘Never Again’ – Kelly Clarkson
What is a bitter countdown without the president of the bitter club…Miss Kelly Clarkson. I think one line in this song can sum it up better than I ever could: “I hope the ring you gave to her turns her finger green.” O0o0o burn.
What I have learned from Kelly over the years is that bitterness is like a baby, it grows with age.
2. ‘Bye Bye Bye’ – N’Sync
Since it’s only fair I give my male fans a jam to jam out to, I have chosen an oldie but a goodie. Yes, I’m bringing it all the way back to when Justin Timberlake had the fro…his best days <3
Hopefully, Justin will take his own advice and say bye, bye, bye to Jessica Biel…oops, can’t say that.
1. ‘Independent Women’ – Destiny’s Child
This song provides us ladies a very important lesson. If you can’t figure it out after watching the video…I’m afraid all hope is lost for you.
Happy Valentine’s Day…Take that Cupid.
As you have probably noticed by now, I am not a sports enthusiast or sports anything for that matter. So getting excited for the Super Bowl is a struggle for me…especially since Reggie Bush isn’t playing this year…extra sad face.
Anywho, since I won’t be paying attention to the game, I will have to keep my radar on for the commercials…I know, typical woman response.
Since I have a duty as a blogger to report on all the celebrity cameos, I must watch the commercials diligently for any celebrity spottings and share the news with my people.
Here is one commercial I am super pumped for:
Another and more obvious reason to be excited for tonight’s spectacle is for the musical acts. While everyone is talking and wondering what the hell Madonna will be doing to piss off the church this year, I think everyone has forgotten about another singer attending the event…It’s Clarkson, Bitch.
Kelly Clarkson will be singing the National Anthem this year! After Xtina f’ed it up last year…I’m really nervous for Kelly, but I have the upmost faith that she will kill it. I mean she has already sang the infamous song at a Cowboys game and did a tremendous job. Point Clarkson.
That is all. Kari out.
In anticipation of seeing Kelly Clarkson this Sunday in AC (aka the Vegas of the East Coast), I have been listening to her new album “Stronger” along with some of her classics.
Since I am 84% bitter, Kelly and I get along quite well. Many of her singles are brewing with anger but they have an upbeat tempo. What’s the point of writing a man-hating/bitter/want to beat someone with a shoe kind of song if it sounds happy?
That’s where I come in. Kelly really didn’t let her bitter side show until her second album ” Breakaway.” That’s when it all came out.
I have listened to possibly every Clarkson song that she has released and I am here to give you the top four most bitter jams by the one and only American Idol.
Track #11 on “Breakaway” this hidden gem is Clarkson at her bitter best. She just wants someone (a man) to hear her. Snookin’ for love isn’t easy. After hearing this song, you will hear Kelly, her voice is amazing.
Favise lyrics: “Are you listening?”
Listed as lucky number six on “My December,” I think the title of this song says it all. If I ever meet the man who inspired Kelly to write these lyrics, I will roundhouse kick him in the face.
Favise lyrics: “Couldn’t believe, couldn’t believe/How you deceived, you deceived/I never thought you’d do that to me”
‘Let Me Down’
As you can probably tell by the title, it’s another uplifting jam by K. Clarkson that lands at track #11 on “Stronger.” I believe Kelly is talking about a potential bf and when she needs this man, he is not there for her. What a fool.
Favise lyrics: “The funny thing about forever/Is it comes with a side of never never” AND “You’re only gonna let me down/When it counts, you countdown”
Last but certainly not least, “Addicted” takes spot six on “Breakaway.” I have made a decision, decision made: “Addicted” is Kelly’s best song ever! The “American Idol” winner has since put out three albums and no song has come close to “Addicted.” If you listen to the lyrics, it probably explains why I’m afraid of commitment…oops can’t say that.
Favise lyrics: “It’s like you’re a drug”
Kelly- I hear your pain, girl! See you Sunday. Get ready for me to bum rush the stage <3
In honor of Non-Demeaning to Women Wednesday, I would like to share with you the new music video by Kelly Clarkson…”Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You)” is the 2nd single off Clarkson’s 5th studio album “Stronger.”
If you are wondering why I chose Kelly as the Non-Demeaning to Women Wednesday winner…you deserve a slap across the face.
Kelly Clarkson is the definition of Non-Demeaning to Women. She doesn’t care what you say about her fluctuating weight and will not let any man sass her.
Personally, I think she could kick my ass and I’m weirdly alright with that.
Below is Clarkson’s newest music video for “Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You).”
I have a few things I would like to say about this video:
- Kelly is looking good these days. I’m feeling the bangs.
- I’m not really pumped about the fan videos that are sprinkled throughout, but since Kelly is such a nice person I can see why she did it.
- Flash mob starring the American Idol…love it.
While this video is ok, I’m not in love with it. Whatever happened to the music videos that Clarkson would release that had a storyline? For example, “Never Again,” “Behind These Hazel Eyes” and “Since You’ve Been Gone.” I really felt Kelly’s pain when I watched these.
As for the 3rd single, I’m really pulling for “Let Me Down.” This song is Clarkson at her man-hating best. She let’s us know that: “You’re only gonna let me down/When it counts, you countdown/You’re only gonna turn me out/As I burn, you burn out.” So profound.
Kelly – In my eyes, you are the one and only American Idol. I don’t understand why Seacrest and J.Lo keep searching for another one season after season. They already found you! See you in AC, girl!
Below is another jam off Kelly Clarkson’s upcoming album “Stronger,” set to be released October 24th.
If you haven’t noticed by now, Kelly loves to scream about never ever needing a man. That’s why we love her!
In “What Doesn’t Kill You (Stronger)” Kelly says exactly what you’re thinking: “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.” Obviously, this is referring to a man crushing your soul, but not killing you. Since you aren’t dead, you will come out stronger and/or never wanting to date anyone ever again.
Favise lyrics: “Baby you don’t know me, cause you’re devil”
Sing it sister!
