I know MTV doesn’t care, but I love a good music video. Recently, a lot of entertaining ones have been released. I would like to share a few of my new favs.
Say hello to Mike WiLL Made-It – ft. Miley Cyrus, Juicy J & Wiz Khalifa. I honestly have no idea why I’m into this song. I really don’t even know what it’s about, but I find myself listening to it quite frequently.
I have actually thought about this being my theme song when I walk into places such as malls, grocery stores and even work. Anyways, my favorite part of the music video is watching Miley Cyrus be a BAMF.
Does anyone else want to sit on a basketball hoop and rap? I know I do.
Hold On, We’re Going Home
This music video mashes all of life’s most beautiful things: Drake, the year 1985 and A$AP Rocky. Watching this music video is like 7 minutes in heaven…really, the music video is 7 minutes long. It chronicles Drake saving his lady from a kidnapper. It’s really beautiful, you’ll see.
Does anyone else wish that Drake would dress like Miami Vice from now on?
Obviously you had to see this one coming, right? I have to say, I really enjoyed watching this music video. It made me feel exotic, when in reality I was sitting on the couch with the cats.
I have a few favorite parts that I must share:
1. How do I get a vanity set in the desert? I would like to place mine approximately 2 feet from Brit’s. I’m trying to borrow that perfume.
2. Does the dancing scene with the gloves remind anyone of the Me Against the Music era?
3. God, Britney looks GREAT! The weave, dance moves and facial expressions are all in check.
Britney, I’m so, I’m so, I’m so proud of you.
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!
Snooki was drunk all the time
So I’ll say it…I’m not entirely happy that Snooki is with child. I’m sorry, but I can’t hide my feelings any longer. I spent a majority of last weekend watching the “Jersey Shore” marathon on the TV and appreciated the fact that Snooki would drink until she fell over. It’s harder than you think…it’s a full-time job. During these benders, Snooki taught me how to Snook for love for goodness sakes! I think I’m crying.
Even though Snooki is engaged to Jionni and the happy couple is expecting a baby…I wanted to share some of my favise Snooki moments and reminisce on the good times.
Remember when Snooki couldn’t find the beach?
Remember when Snooki and Deena were cruising in Italy and Snooki slammed into a police car?
Remember when MTV constructed a life-sized hamster ball and plopped Snooki inside? What a way to ring in 2011.
Typically, I would address Snooki with a sassy comment at this point, but I can’t sass a pregnant woman…I do have some morals. So this one goes out to Deena. Girl if you need someone to hit up the bar or club with you…I’m available day or night.
Boy oh boy or should I say boy or girl?
This week is filled with a lot of baby news and the rumor mill is running on high with reports that Snooki is pregnant. Like me, you might need a moment or seven to digest that.
Snooki, 24 is allegedly three to four months pregnant…the father is Jionni LaValle, Snooki’s current bf who makes the occasional cameo on the “Jersey Shore.”
Mama Snooks is said to be shopping her pregnancy story around to all the mags. Rumor has it Us Weekly picked up the story and if it’s true…we’ll be seeing Snooks, the woman with a constant blood alcohol level, on the cover in the classic pregnancy pose.
Snooki hasn’t commented on this vital matter…neither has her rep.
What an interesting turn of events Snooki and JWoww’s spinoff show “Snooki and JWoww vs. The World” could take if this news is true. Instead of shopping for booze, they could be shopping for baby things…ugh.
Hi, my name is Kari and I watch the “Jersey Shore.” I love it…so much so that I incorporate such words/phrases into my vernacular:
- “I know I’m not the smartest crayon… but we can make a party”
- “Let’s get wasty-pants”
- “Where’s the beach?” (Say while screaming at top of lungs)
- “I wanna go to the gymmm”
In preparation of Jersday…I discovered a photo to make you giggle like a fool:
Bahahahahhaha…guess whooooo? Yes, It is Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino. He looks like such a gentleman here. But I know better…I read the gospel of Snooki:
Snooki on Mike: “That’s what you get for being a fucking douchebag.”
How does a man go from a bow tie to this:
Dear Mike, Stop shaving the sides of your head! Along with that, stop being a fucking douchebag. Love, Kari
Yes, I’m one of those people that still watches “The Real World.” I wish that I bought or stole a video camera so I could film my life and get my ass on that damn show. Who doesn’t want to put their life on hold for three months and drink on national television?
Last evening was the start of the 26th season of…dare I say…the first reality show. The cast has been relocated to San Diego…the same place that season 14 was filmed. MTV – get it together and pick new cities.
Anywho, “The Real World” got me thinking. What if we placed celebrities in a house and filmed what happened? Don’t even think about saying “The Surreal Life,” I’m talking real celebrities and not Mini Me. As you all know, there are classic “Real World” stereotypes. I will attempt to fill them with the appropriate celebs and magically create an unforgettable season.
I would cast this street racer as the crazy drunk guy that beats people and/or walls. Every season has that guy who is intoxicated 94.8% of the time. A more recent example being, Adam from Las Vegas part II.
Adam had one too many at the bar…gets kicked out of a Las Vegas bar (I didn’t even know that could happen) and goes up to their suite and starts throwing glass and swinging at various roommates.
Whether or not Vin is a big partier, he’s got that bad boy twinkle in his eye. I can see him at the club dancing and having a good time…when he gets back to the house…ripping doors off hinges in a fit of rage. I wish I could be there to watch him rage out with his shirt off.
I would cast this beauty as the girl who is single and ready to mingle, but has a 4.0 GPA. Almost every season, there is a lady on the show who likes to hit the town, but doesn’t become Snooki after a few cocktails.
This description reminds me from Kelley from New Orleans part I. She was the cool girl that everyone got along with. One evening while out at the bar, Kelley meets and scores a doctor …jackpot! After that gift from Jesus, Kelley was rarely seen on the season and I don’t blame her.
Julia Stiles would fit very nicely into this role. She earned an English Lit degree from Columbia University and can bust out sweet dances moves that will give you whiplash.
Julia describes herself as a feminist and she wrote an article in “The Guardian” back in 2004 about the roles she has taken on and what it means in our society.
Julia – you’re so smart, I feel like you would have the most inspiring moments in the confessional.
Of course you need the girl who lives to party. There are just too many Real World alums to mention that have taken on this role with great pride. Many celebs came to mind while choosing this member for the celeb cast…Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton, Courtney Love…
Why did I choose Tara? Remember that time she lost her front tooth, glued it back in and continued to party?! She was so dedicated to the cause that she reportedly glued her own tooth back in. Paris and Lindsay – you should be ashamed of yourselves.
I was doing a little reading on Miss Reid and found out an interesting tidbit…she was born and raised in Jersey. If the whole tooth debacle didn’t convince you that Tara has earned the position as house partier, her home state should.
Tara – I won’t ever get over the tooth thing, but I would still like to party with you and live to tell the story.
Of course there is more…stay tuned!
Well MTV, it’s about damn time. Britney Spears is getting her very own tribute on this year’s VMAs. I can only imagine what they are cooking up for this one. I hope we see Britney through the ages, starting from “…Baby One More Time all the way until “I Wanna Go.” Throwing in a few drag queens wouldn’t hurt the cause either.
Since they planned this epic tribute 24 hours before the day I was birthed into this world, I would also like to thank MTV for the early bday gift! I knew sitting in front of MTV for all those hours would eventually pay off.
As a society, we are rarely shocked these days. We have become immune to seeing celebrities flip out at the paparazzi, party till the wee hours of the morning and even some stars accidently showing their ‘Britney’ while getting out of a car. But there are some stories that really get us talking.
Below is a list of a few of those stories that put the shock back in shocking.
Kanye West vs. Taylor Swift
This shocking moment occurred on an evening that was supposed to be full of happiness for Miss Swift. Last year at the MTV Video Music Awards, Swift won for Female Video of the Year.
As she was accepting her award, Kanye West jumped up on stage and announced “Beyoncé had one of the best videos of all time.” Seemingly ruining Taylor’s night, Beyoncé saved the day by letting Taylor come up on stage and finish her acceptance speech.
Tiger Woods hitting multiple “holes in one”
It seemed to be a match made in heaven. In 2004, Tiger Woods married former Swedish model and nanny, Elin Nordegren. They had two beautiful children and a life that others dreamed of having.
Late one Thanksgiving evening, Woods was found lying on the ground next to his Escalade with injuries to his face. Why? According to “Us Weekly,” his wife found out that he was cheating on her with not one, but up to 13 women. Elin, he totally deserved to be beaten with that golf club…you go girl!
Larry, you are the father
Larry Birkhead was the former boyfriend of Anna Nicole Smith. When Smith unexpectedly passed away in 2007, the main question that arose was who would get custody of Dannielynn, Smith’s young daughter. There were many contenders: Howard Stern (Smith’s lawyer and longtime partner) Larry Birkhead (Smith’s ex-boyfriend) Howard Marshall (Smith’s ex-husband) and Frédéric Prinz von Anhalt (Zsa Zsa Gabor’s husband who had an affair with Smith) among many others.
After a long court battle, Birkhead was proven to be Dannielynn’s real father. His name is now listed on Dannielynn’s birth certificate.
Britney and Justin: The Breakup
Even though this couple has been separated since 2002, I am still impacted by this breakup. Britney and Justin were the couple next door. They met on the “Mickey Mouse Club” and both stepped into the role of pop stars. Dating for two and a half years, the couple broke up because Spears allegedly cheated on Timberlake with her chorographer, Wade Robinson.
As a result of the breakup, Timberlake decided to spill the beans and tell the world that he slept with Spears before marriage. Remember, Spears wanted to wait until she was hitched? Timberlake also went on to write the song, “Cry me a River,” which had a guest appearance of a woman who was a striking resemblance to Spears in the music video. This breakup also produced Spears’ single “Everytime,” in which she attempts to apologize to Timberlake. Even though these two have gone their separate ways, I still dream of the day when they will reunite.
