Everything is exactly how it should be.

For the second year in a row, MTV has named Lady Gaga as Woman of the year!!

And my OTHER fav won for MAN of the year.... that would be Kanye. Just perfect. The two best, most talented, and utterly original artists right now, right at the top where they should be.

Here's the video clips for both. Of course I love Gaga and she is my goddess and all.. but I find Kanye's video more exciting because it involved redemption!! He really wasn't in a great place PR-wise, when 2010 began. Fresh off the Taylor Swift incident and still under fire for it.. but then he starts releasing killer music and rises again! Kanye will always rise again!!!

In contrast, Gaga hasn't fallen. She's this epic pop music monster, that keeps growing and growing and growing with no end in sight! She didn't even release an album in 2010 and yet she's still dominated so hard. With her next album out early next year.. I think we might be going for a three-peat

Michael K is right, this is some Addams Family shit! Lamar as a black uncle Fester, Khloe is Cousin It, Kylie is Wednesday and I'm sure I could name more if I knew the Addams family characters.

just, wow.

Photobucket

What in God's name is going on with these Golden Globes nominations?? HELLA Razzie status movies are scoring noms. The Tourist got THREE, and even Burlesque and Easy A got a nod. Wow...

We can all thank Adam Lambert for this years boring AMAs

ABC was hella pissed at Adam Lambert’s shenanigans at last year’s show so they must’ve told everyone to keep it tame because this year’s AMAs were boring as hell!!

Rihanna opened the show. She started off with a soft, slow song I didn’t recognize, then she did the chorus to Love the way you lie... she jumped off the swing she was on, disappeared for a few seconds, and then comes out all sexy, struttin around in a black and white bra and panties and a sarong.. I found that an awkward transition.. from one second singing your song about physical abuse in a relationship to jumping out in a skimpy costume gyrating around.. in bad taste- Yes, but her bod is BANGIN! She was singing her new song "What's my name", which has similar vibe as Rude Boy, and she was doing the same kind of dancing as in the vid. Her body looked so good! And awesome dancing. She was kind of channeling Beyonce, with her hair all huge in ringlets, huge hoop earrings, and dancing like her.. at one point she turned to the side and did her “uh oh” move from Crazy in Love. Hmm.. So, elements of the performance were good but it was just too long! She ended up doing 4 songs!

Favorite Soul/R&B male goes to Usher. I can’t look at Usher with respect since last week when I went to his concert and it was the most lackluster concert I’ve ever been to.. no audience connection, no build up or anticipation, vocals sacrificed for dancing, cheap ass effects.. Dull. OMG is still the shit though.

Favorite Pop/Rock act- Black Eyed Peas

Enrique Iglesias performance. He starts out with a song I don’t know.. GRATUITOUS use of auto-tune. Then segued into “I like it” with Pitbull. Pitbull has got to be the most disgusting man in the music industry. I would meet Marilyn Manson or Andrew W.K. or any creeper before I’d meet Pitbull. I wouldn’t even win free tickets to his concert.

Miley Cyrus performance- She’s channeling Stevie Nicks big time. Dressed in a long black flowy dress, even a very Stevie Nicks style of singing. It could have been a Stevie Nicks song for all I know. But her vocals were actually pretty impressive.

Next was a performance by Diddy-Dirty Money.. I think of a Hello, Good morning club banger when I hear that name and what I got was totally the opposite.. they came out singing some religious, inspirational “Forgiving my mistakes” , “Thank you, Lord, I’m coming home” song, with a full on orchestra-cello, violins.. seems a little off-track for a group called “Dirty Money”. I’ll pass.

Favorite Country singer- T.Swift.. She’s wearing her hair straight!! With blunt bangs! She looks like an adult! Congratulations! She was wearing this little mini dress.. still having a hard time breaking away from the sparkles..but this is progress. Definitely the best she has ever looked. Ever.

Photobucket

Kid Rock performance- all acoustic, just him, a guitar and some background singers. It was really good, His song was kind of a social one about the hard times hitting home.. it was really cool to see something like this from him. He’s always surprising us.. he’s a rapper, then he’s rock, then he’s southern rock, country, and now this. I liked it. Props!

Favorite Latin music artist- ok.. Daddy Yankee was nominated.. Shakira won, but what they hell have either of them done in the past year? Further, this is the AMERICAN Music Awards. We’re losing focus.

Black Eyed Peas performance-started off with the traditional stealing of another artists’ music. This time, it’s “Time of my Life”. And then Will.i.am is off spitting his nonsense as usual. He thinks he’s the shit. Bambi says he acts like Kanye.. and she’s so right! Will.i.am thinks he’s Kanye status! Hahahahaa

Katy Perry performance-Firework. I really don’t have anything to say. It was mediocre.

Next, Nicki Minaj, Trey “Songz” and Taio Cruz get up to present Fav Soul/R&b female. Nicki’s outfit is crazy, as usual. It looks kind of Alexander McQueen-ish, but probably isn’t. Green-painted hair.

Photobucket

And Nicki gives the most shameles plug I’ve ever heard!! Trey and Taio are presenting the freakin award.. like “And the award goes to....” and Nicki jumps in right into the mic, “Pink Friday! This Wednesday my album drops, show some love for Pink Friday!” OMG girl. They tried again to present.. and it goes to Rihanna.

Wilow Smith presents the next performance: The Biebs. He did another song about our hard times right now! Shit son.You know our country isn’t doing well when both Kid Rock and Justin Bieber are performing inspirational songs about social awareness! Good for him though, expanding pop’s boundaries a bit. I’m not a fan, but I think it was a great performance.

Photobucket

Fav country male- Brad Paisley

Bon Jovi performance- didn’t they perform their greatest hits medley at the Grammy’s or some other recent award show? They can’t just keep doing this every time.

T-Mobile Breakthru artist- Biebs

Pink performance- “Raise your glass” What a fun performance! Pink can always be counted on to bring the energy. She had a cool Rosie the Riveter look going on. She’s such a badass, I always love her performances.

Ne-yo performs with some MJ moves. That’s about it.

T.Swift performs. Now, you are not going to believe what I’m about to say. Well, I already said she looks better than ever, like an actual adult. And she’s singing a song where SHE’S the one in the wrong!! What?? No trips to Martyr Land today? She sampled One Republic’s Apologize.. which was weird.. but when she was signing her song she actually was bringing the energy and putting emotion into it! She was showing passion and not just being a princess. She actually gave a good performance!! Thumbs up from me.

Fav. Pop/Rock male- Eminem was nominated.. seriously.. Pop/Rock? Something is wrong with this classification system. Anyway, it went to Bieber.

Christina’s performance- Dun Dun Dun. Well..... what do you think I’m going to say here?...
Photobucket

She can never fucking bring anything original to a performance.! All she knows how to do since her Stripped album is old, clichéd themes. Obviously she’s promoting her “movie”, Burlesque, so she’s gonna go with the Burlesque theme. It’s just so overdone. It’s just as bad as the school girl uniform in pop music, it’s been done! Her vocals were what you’d expect, her usual impressive range. But the aesthetic wasn’t anything special. Her hair looked like she’s been taking weave-maintenance tips from Britney! Some mangy poodle shit going on. There’s a few other things I’m tempted to mention but I should probably just draw the line here and stop.

Fav country band/duo- Lady Antebellum- that’s a group?

Usher performance- Shit son! This is just what I was talking about! Just like his concert all over again! What is UP ...just like when I saw him, he’d basically not even sing in order to do his choreography. He’d sing a couple of words, then abruptly just stop singing in the middle of a verse for the next 8 seconds to do his moves. His lyrics trailed off, he’d mumble.. Then, when there’s some cheap-ass fireworks going off in the back, he’ll stop singing all together and just shift back and forth like we’re supposed to be so amazed by the effects that we forget we want to hear him sing, or at least engage us somehow. You’re fired, Usher.

Fav alternative rock- Muse

Train performance- I want Pat Monahan’s jeans! Skinny, grey and glittery!!
Fav adult contemporary- AKA the most boring category. And of course Michael Buble wins. He makes the most boring milktoast music.

You know things are bad when I’m looking forward to the Ke$ha performance. She did two songs, SUPER synthesized and auto-tuned Turn me on and then “We’re superstars” or some shit. I hate myself for it but I’m warming up to Ke$ha. Ugh. She did pretty good, for her. At the end she smashed her guitar.

Santana and Gavin Rossdale performance- I kind of wasn’t paying too much attention to this one, but I’ll venture to say it probably had the most musical integrity of the night.

Fav soul/R&b artist-This is freakin repetitive! They did best Soul/R&b female, male, and now ARITST and it’s the same winner as who won the MALE category- Usher. He gets up there, “Trey, we killin em on the road!” Yes, you ARE killing us.
Artist of the year- JUSTIN BIEBER! He’s ballin on this shit!! Safe to say he swept this one.

And the closing performance, the New Kids on the Black and Backstreet Boys collaboration. It was just about as embarrassing as it sounds.

Photobucket

I just felt... bad for them. NKOTB weren’t my age group but BSB sure was; I was a huge fan. I even saw them live.. but, I dunno, I just don’t see why they’d even try to do this. They’re missing a member.. and their fan base doesn’t care about the NKOTB and the New Kids’ fan base doesn’t care about the BSB! They’re doing a whole god damned summer TOUR together! Can’t you just leave your legacy in the past when you were great and desired? Don’t end it like this.. you guys are pushing 40.. Jordan Knight from NKOTB was up there like he’s still some teen heart throb, still doing that cheesy choreography.. The worst lyrical sample: “All you people-can’t you see, can’t you see, NKOTB,S,B!” Stop!! You’re making me sad.

The biggest theme of the night, aside from boredom, was synthesized robot music. When I take control of the radio in the car, my dad complains that all today’s music just sounds like a bunch of Star Wars sounds. And he’s right. Black Eyed Peas were hella robotic just like their last album, Ke$ha took it to the MAX with the synthesizing and even Enrique Iglesias used auto-tune. Sign of the times I guess..

Here’s hoping that next year will be good.. With Kanye and Nicki Minaj’s albums coming out this week, and Britney, Gaga, No Doubt and Lil Wayne slotted to release new albums in 2011, we should hopefully have some good music to celebrate next year.

hahahahhahahah make it stop

Kim is getting a little too big for her britches!! She's crazy if she thinks she's pulling this shit off.

Put the broom away Gaga, you already swept the VMAs

Starting with the Red Carpet!

Not crazy about Katy Perry's ice skating Marchesa-look. I REALLY think it's time to retire the one shoulder-dress.
Photobucket

Snooki was rockin some new bangs instead of the pouf she "invented".

Gaga arrived wearing Alexander McQueen from his last collection-the same dress she wore in one of her photos from the Vanity Fair spread.
Photobucket

The dress is so long she could get away with wearing some comfy shoes but of course she went the whole mile. Under that dress she wore Alexander McQueen armadillo shoes. They look absolutely impossible and must be a good 7 inches in height. 8? They look like this...
Photobucket

I don't know why but the producers decided to give out a few awards early on the red carpet (white carpet technically..) but the two categories were Best Dance Video and Best Collaboration. Best Dance went to Gaga for Bad Romance and Best Collabo went to Gaga and Beyonce for Telephone. Just as I predicted in my earlier post.

Ursher and Justin Bieber were interviewed...boring as hell.

Then we were graced with an early performance from Nicki Minaj and Will.I.Am. She came out with pink hair and set to it. Props for singing live. It went okay I guess. She did "Your Love". Then Will.i.am came out..And he was black man to the MAX! Like he was completely black from top to bottom. Skin and everything. Actually, his hair was some colorful plastic piece but it was cool. I'm already reading that he's catching some heat for being insensitive doing "blackface". Some guy tweeted that Will.i.am's blackface set black people back 1000 years! OMG are you serious. It would be weird if a white person painted themselves all black.. but Will.i.am is ALREADY BLACK. ugh.
Photobucket
So they switched to the song they have together that samples Video Killed the Radio Star. So, in her performance, Nicki stole not one, but two people's songs.. because Your Love samples Annie Lennox's No more I love yous. I do like Nicki's song but I do find it lame that people making music today can't just come up with their own music and have to resort to stealing stuff from songs that already exist. Just sayin-It looks bad that both songs she performed featured stolen material.

Kesha makes her appearance in what she claims in a garbage bag she got from Home Depot.
Photobucket

That was about it from the Red Carpet. It was kind of underwhelming compared to last year. There wasn't must exciting fashion. I had a bad feeling this was an omen that the rest of the show would follow suit. I decided by the end of the show I'd make the judgement if the VMAs in NYC are just infinitely better than the ones in LA. More on that later.

So the show begins with a tramatizing close up of Eminem's face and blinky right eye, starting "Not Afraid". It starts in an 8 Mile-esque underground club, and then opens up into thw whole Nokia Theater. He continues with the song, then we get a surprise appearance from Ronald McDonald to assist with "Love the Way you Lie"
Photobucket

Ok, I already hate both the songs.. but especially the second because it glamourizes and seems to excuse domestic violence.. But even putting that aside, I kept thinking these two were not appropriate opening songs! An opening song to the VMAs should be something upbeat to pump people up! A club-banger or pop diva strutting her stuff-Not a heavy, sad song about domestic abuse. So I thought that was a bad move.

The opening comedy bit with Chelsea Handler started, featuring a cameo from LINDSAY LOHAN!
Photobucket
She did a good job and really poked fun at herself for being a drunk at work so it was funny. This fully supports Bambi's hypothesis that Linds is always better off with the natural red hair. Nothing bad happens to her when she's red. It's only when she's blonde or dark that the drama comes. She just dyed her hair back to red a few days ago and she's already getting it together! Team Lilo FTW.

A hilarious opening number to Bad Romance ensued, with Chelsea as Gaga in some crazy outfit with a house on her head. After the song she released a dove from under her dress... and it didn't even fly away!! It just perched on one of the dancers' legs.
Photobucket

It was the first time in 16 years that the VMAs have been hosted by a woman (Roseanne Barr hosted in 1994). That's sweet and I'm all for it but I'm not sure how well the rest of her comedy went.. I really wanted her to cut down some celebrities but she played it so tame!! She's usually so good with calling people out and confronting them with their shit, and all with a perfectly straight face.. She was ok but not as brutal as I had hoped. Although she did call out Kanye as "The big, black elephant in the room". HA!

Best Female- Lady Gaga-Bad Romance. She needed a little help up the stage but who wouldn't in those armadillo shoes?

Best Rock- 30 Seconds to Mars-Kings and Queens. That's cool. It's a good song. Too bad they sold the rights to it away to that fucking stupid owl movie.

Kim Kardashian introduces Justin Bieber in the stupidest intro of the night. She thinks she's so clever. She even fucking tweeted about it after the show. "Wasn't that intro funny?? Restraining order! lol!" FYI Kim after that whole show, no one is talking about your stupid intro.

Biebs performance is okay. Kind of boring. He's a midget.

Kesha and Trey Songz (Real name: Tremaine Aldon Neverson, you fucker!)introduce Ursh. Kesha appears drunk.

He started with DJ got us fallin in love and segued into OMG. He sang a few parts live but the performance was mostly about his dancing; It was pretty major. No Hot Toddie though??

Katy Perry and Nicki Minaj present the next award. I had no idea Nicki had such a huge ass! Maybe it was just the dress.
Photobucket

Best Male- Eminem-Not Afraid. They said he wasn't there because right after his performance he hopped on a plane to do a concert in New York.

Ahhh... NOW it all makes sense. Eminem needed to at least show his face and do SOMETHING at the ceremony since he was the most nominated male this year. But with his obligation in New York, he coulnd't stick around longer than the beginning. THAT'S why they gave him the opening slot, just because of the time convenience. If it hadn't been for that he wouldn't have opened the show cuz those songs are unfit opening material. I knew something wasn't right with that shit.

Next performance: Florence and the Machine. Never heard of her. She seems kind of indie to be a VMA performer. I'm pretty biased in that department. But she did well. Impressive vocals.

Best Pop- Lady Gaga-Bad Romance. She got up there, thanked people, and MTV, even though she said they wanted her to cut a lot out from the video to shorten it. Then she said "God bless pop music and God bless MTV!" I actually saw this one going to Katy Perry for California Gurls. That video is the total embodiment of a sugary bubble-gum pop music video. But no. It hit me when Gaga was done that she just stole the one category Katy had a chance for. Ha! She was talkin shit about Gaga a few weeks ago. Suck it Katy.
Photobucket

Now time for that goody-two-shoes Taylor Swift. I guess she took a break from the sparkly dresses this year. She started her performance with clips from last years VMAs-announcing her win, her stupid look of "what?? little old me?? Wow you guys!!" and then Kanye's imminent take-over. And then fade to black. Omg you fucking dramtic twat. Where's the violins?? Can we get a cello for her pathetic ass??
She proceded to sing the whiniest, gag-inducing folk song about how terrible it was and how broken she was but she forgives him. Sample lyrics: "shattered on the floor", "32 and still growin up now/Who you are is not what you did" and "everyone has messed up too".
Photobucket
Who you are is not what you did??? Who the fuck are you? Jesus?? Thanks for pardoning our sins, Saint Taylor. I bet Kanye is real fucking relieved.
I can't believe she went there. I guess it's not enough to just be positive and move forward to show resolve. You got to wallow in it a little more-there's still some sympathy to be milked!

In lighter news, Drake performed next! It was a cool 1950's Copa-Cabana vibe. He and Mary J. and Swizz Beatz performed Fancy. And I loved Mary's touch on the song! It was so good live. The beats sounded good, it was a good flow, good energy and everything was right.

Best Hip Hop- Em-Not Afraid. Omg that vid is so lame. All the noms in this category were.

Bruno Mars and B.o.B. perform Nothing on you. Then Hayley Williams comes on stage and she and B.o.B do Airplanes and then the rest of Paramore comes out and they do Only Expecption. ahhh omg ENOUGH!!!!! Was this necessary? It was just a mash up mess. Too many songs the public is already sick of.

Best New- I had this one going to Kesh but it went to the Biebs.

Cut to Gaga wearing raw meat! On her head too.

Linkin Park performs. I didn't know they still had fans?

Cher comes out, in the same exact outfit and hair from "Turn back Time" vid!! And she can still cary it off just the same! That was 20+ years ago.. props, Cher.

She announced Video of the Year.... Lady Gaga-Bad Romance

It was so entirely appropriate that Cher would be the one to give this to Gaga. Cher was the Gaga of my mom's generation-pushing the envelope with sexuality and wacky over-the-top costumes. Love it.
Photobucket

Gaga makes her way up on stage to accept. She says she told her fans if she won she'd reveal the title of her new album, and its called "Born this way" Love it! She said those words earlier in the night when accepting her best pop award, and she also said it at her Tacoma concert. So, I'm not surprised at all. But totally excited.

So the big closer of the night is Kanye, introduced hilariously by Aziz Ansari, host of this year's MTV movie awards. He pretended he was on the phone defending Kanye. And then he was like, "Wait, what?" "..He did what last year?" "HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH! Thats so funny!"
It resounded with me because that was my reaction last year as well.

Photobucket

So Kanye did some song "Let's have a toast for the douchebags!" He knows. He knows whats up, he knows how the public views him, how he smudged his name yet again last year and he's not ignoring it. It's like he's mocking himself and bashing himself so the audience won't have to. You know if he sang a song about how great he was or about ANYthing else, he'd get boo'd off the stage.
I read tweets from people at the show that there was some booing but on TV all I heard was cheering. And afterwards, chants of "KANYE!, KANYE!, KANYE!"
Funny, he's supposed to be the big bad wolf, but I didn't hear anyone chanting Taylor Swift's name like that. I must have missed it.


Overall, the year's VMAs were okay. Not as stellar as last year, but certainly not as disasterous as 2008. I'm definitely happy with the winners. However, the fashion and performances were lackluster. The redcarpet just had so much more drama last year. (I guess who whole show did!) It's just a different vibe to start with in New York. It just seems more theatrical. I remember so many cool dresses from last year- Gaga's black one with feathers, Pink and Shakira's matching dress, Taylor Swift arriving in her fucking carriage. That's drama. The red carpet didn't have that this year. It was a freaking white carpet in downtown LA. There were no glamourous arrivals. MTV mainly just used the time in the red carpet pre-show to suck its own cock and show clips of its own productions. Here's a clip from Snooki and Angelina's big fight coming up next week on MTV! Here's an exclusive sneak peak of Jaskass 3D! Here's video of the Jersey Shore cast SEEING Jackass 3D! Watch the clip from our new show, "Life of Jenks" ! OMG.
And secondly-the performances!! Last year almost every performance was a huge spectacle! Pink sopping wet doing acrobatics above the audience, Platforms and platforms of girls doing the Single Ladies dance behind Beyonce, Lady Gaga going batshit, bleeding all over herself and then hanging dead on a rope. Jay and Alicia's performance of Empire State of Mind was huge, and I'm not just talking about Alicia's ass in those leggings- And it was freaking crashed by Lil Mama. Shit, even Taylor Swift had a performance on the Subway, then out in the Manhattan streets!

If I had to choose the best performance this year, I'd say I enjoyed Drake's the most but it wasn't anything spectacular. It was great but it didn't have much to keep you buzzing about it for the rest of the week or anything. Em and Riri? Yeah she was a surprise but it wasn't that great. The performances that will be the most talked about will be Taylor and Kanye's but just because they're singing about eachother and talking about LAST YEAR's show! The performances themselves weren't that great; it was the content. Bah. So the performances were kind of a let down for me.

I guess its a trade off. Botched wins and good performances one year, Good winners, bad performances and fashion the next. Let's keep the VMAs away from LA forever please MTV?? Maybe let's try Vegas again??

These aren't regular tweets... this is stream of consciousness

Kanye West went on a twitter-binge early this morning and graced us with his profound thoughts and uncensored feelings! These were all tweeted within a couple hours. Thank GOD he joined twitter. It was getting boring. These are must read tweets and I bolded my faves. if you want it in the correct chronological order, start from the bottom and read up!

I'm sorry Taylor.

It starts with this...

I want to win there hearts back so I can continue to bring my take on culture to the masses with a clean opinion.

I want to help starting with the music and ending with the smile.

I wish they could accept that I've grown and only want to do good for the world. I want to help as many people as I can.

I wish they all knew how much I really cared about music and pop culture and art and peoples feelings.

I wish I could talk to every hater face to face and change there a opinion of me one conversation at a time.

I've hurt, I've bled, I've learned. I only want to do good. I am passionate I am human I am real. I wish I could meet every hater

When I right songs like Heartless I always say "is this melody good enough to be a country song or a broadway song?"

TAYLOR LOVES RAP MUSIC... I LOVE COUNTRY MUSIC
Why was it made into such a race issue. Taylor loves rap music... I love country music.

There's a layer of... Entertainment... we are entertainers and this is only TV... not the War

There's a layer of... hey Kanye said what I was thinking

A year later where do we stand?

WHO BENEFITED FOR REAL PEOPLE???!!!!!!!!

Walk with me people... let's break this down for real now. I might get in trouble again lol?

MTV? JAY LENO? BEYONCE? ALL FORMS OF MEDIA? TAYLOR? KANYE WEST? Who gained? Who lost?

You've got the Media play... Who benefitted off of the moment?

You've got a layer of... What is reality? You really want this guy to die over an award show???!! wooooooow .....

You've got a layer of order... this is how things are spose to go this is how it's always been etc.

If I speak in 3rd person it's because I'm quoting people sometimes I forget to put the quotations you know my grammar.. #ITSAPROCESS

You've got the top layer... Kanye's rude!

Why are there so many tweets? Well this isn't a simple subject. There are layers to this beyond me running on stage.

Humanity and Empathy are 2 of the 4 principles at facebook. Those were the 2 principles I was missing on that evening

These tweets have no manager, no publicist , no grammar checking... this is raw

It feels like the movie Heat when you wanted Deniro to make it... You want the bad guy to make it.

These aren't regular tweets... this is stream of consciousness ... I want you guys to know and feel where my head is at...

Beyonce didn't need that. MTV didn't need that and Taylor and her family friends and fans definitely didn't want or need that.

I am not a bad person. Even in that moment I was only trying to do good but people don't always need my help.

When I woke up from the crazy nightmare I looked in the mirror and said GROW UP KANYE ... I take the responsibility for my actions

Yes I was that guy. A 32 year old child.

It is distasteful to cut people off as a general rule. What's the point of dressing tastefully if I'm going to act the complete opposite?

With new found humility ... who am I to run on stage? I would never ever again in a million years do that. Sorry to let you down.

The Wicked witch of the west basically is so convicted to tell her' truth when she does it she is outcasted by society and turned WICKED

Who's seen the play Wicked? I've seen it 4 times! Other than loving the music acting and costumes... it's my story!!!

I have given my awards to other groups multiple times on national TV... They never showed that this past year during the massacre of Kanye

It's not about race America. No one in our position ever stands up and says anything anymore.

I would have ran on stage for Justin that night because Sexy Back (in my mind) was that important... that impactful to our culture

I watched Justin Timberlake at the Grammies loose every televised award including album of the year which the Dixie Chicks won

I am responsible for those who love and represent me and what they have to deal with on a day to day defending "The American Psycho"

There are people who have named there kids after me... can you imagine that next day in school. Even though I don't have kids...

I know there are family members friends and fans that have literally fought for me.

I'm ready to get out of my own way. The ego is overdone... it's like hoodies

We're both artist and the media and managers are trying to get between us.

Everyone wants to capitalize off this is some way

She deserves the apology more than anyone. Thank you Biz Stone and Evan Williams for creating a platform where we can communicate directly

She had nothing to do with my issues with award shows. She had no idea what hit her. She's justa lil girl with dreams like the rest of us.

I wrote a song for Taylor Swift that's so beautiful and I want her to have it. If she won't take it then I'll perform it for her

I wear my scars... It's almost like I have to where a suit to juxtapose my image and I won't lie... IT WORKS!

People tweeted that they wish I was dead... No listen. They wanted me to die people. I carry that. I smile and take pictures through that

I'm the guy who at one point could perform the Justin Timberlake on stage and everyone would be sooo happy that I was there

...taking a 15 second blip the mdeia have successfully painted the image of the "ANGRY BLACK MAN' The King Kong theory.

The media has successfully diminished the "receptive" audience of (3rd person)... KANYE WEST

I have a mission in life to bring truth and beauty through my music and the visuals that anchor around it

Some people say... Why worry about "the haters?" This is bigger that just the concept of haters.

If you google Asshole my face may very well pop up 2 pages into the search.

That's when you realize perception is reality. I've been straying from this subject on twitter but I have to give it to you guys raw now.

I was chilling with this white girl having a conversation and she cut me off and said... Hold up... I thought you didn't like us?!

There are people who don't dislike me... they absolutely hate me!

Remember in Anchor Man when Ron Burgandy cursed on air and the entire city turned on him? But this wasn't a joke. This was & is my real life

People booed when I would go to concerts and the performer mentioned my name.

Had to let employees go... for the first time I felt the impact of my brash actions ... I felt the recession from an ownership side

How deep is the scar... I bled hard.. cancelled tour with the number one pop star in the world ... closed the doors of my clothing office

With the help of strong will, a lack of impathy, a lil alcohol and extremely distasteful & bad timing ... I became George Bush over night

Even though the NBC telethon was widely praised yall didn't think they was just gone let me get away with that did yall???!!!

Some people's truth is Kanye is racist... It's not my truth but I do believe it's my Karma.... walk with me...

When I say perception is reality I mean whatever you think is the truth... is your truth

I accept the idea (ideal) that perception is reality

Happy B day to sister B ... I gotta dope ass gift for you.

Even now a lot of articles start there first 2 paragraphs about how much of an asshole I am

I feel like they were waiting for the opportunity to go in all the way on me and when it came they beat me to a pulp

They wanted yall to believe I was a monster in real life so you guys wouldn't listen or buy my music anymore

Man I love Twitter... I've always been at the mercy of the press but no more... The media tried to demonize me

Emmys Red Carpet

It's been a while since I've done a red carpet blog! This wil be a good warm-up for the VMAs in 2 weeks. So excited.

I usually don't watch the Emmys red carpet but I watched this one and was pleasantly surprised! The women looked so beautiful! Here's some highlights and lowlights.

Lea Michelle in Oscar de la Renta
Photobucket

Kelly Osbourne in Tony Ward
Photobucket
I think she looks absolutely stunning. I love the texture of this dress.

Cheryl Burke in ??
Photobucket
Couldn't find who made this dress but I think Cheryl looks great in it.

Eva Longoria in Robert Rodriguez
Photobucket
Another pat on the back for Eva for not reaching for the mini dress. Even though she's short, this full length gown WORKS.

Christina Hendricks in Zac Posen
Photobucket
Kinda cool and different. Love the feather touch. But who's really looking at her dress.

January Jones in Atelier Versace
Photobucket
This was a nice risk. I LOVE this color. Props for doing something different, January!

Jayma Mays In Burberry Prorsum
Photobucket
Another pretty blue color. And more lovely texture!

And YES I purposely snubbed Kim Kardashian. Her dress wasn't bad but I pretty much never like what she wears. It's always so overdone and vulgar.

WORST DRESSED

Some Glee person in ??

You look like an alien.

Awww

There's a very fine line between sweetness and over-the top mushiness. I don't like most mainstream romantic comedy because they cross that line. I don't know where exactly that line is but Katy Perry's video for Teenage Dream is definitely on the right side. This is embarrassing but it almost brought a tear to my eye!! I think it just captures the essense and emotions of young love so flawlessly. It's the perfect summer video. Here it is.

"It's not a video .. It's a moving Painting!!! "

Wow, he was really serious... My god man. Only Kanye would take himself so seriously enough to make a video like this. He is obviously going though a classic art phase.. twitpic-ing shots of all this old art and antique furniture from Europe so I guess he wanted to make some renaissance-looking art of his own. What a self-righteous bastard and I love him for it.

Check out his moving painting POWER.

I expect this from Xtina.. but CHER??

Wow.. here she goes again, doing something that's already been done. This Burlesque movie is sure looking like a piece of shit... and whats worse is its a piece of shit Ive already seen before. Hmm let's see...a movie about a young, modest, small-town girl going to LA and HEY!! She can sing!! Crossroads anyone? Glitter with Mimi is practically the same. Girl from humble backgrounds trying to get into singing.. and it's discovered she has a miraculous voice!! Repeat this same scenario but replace singing with dancing and you've got Coyote Ugly AND Showgirls.
I was kind of neutral and even hopeful when I saw shots from Xtina and Cher filming this shit.. assuming Xtina was doing a legit acting role and not just playing a singer and banking on her amazing voice to carry her thru the movie. NOPE.

Chech out this cheesy, expected mess!!

VMA predictions

Well the 2010 VMA nominations were announced this morning and I could not be more excited! Lady Gaga is leading the pack with 13, the new record for the most nominations EVER. Eminem is a distant second with 8. And what a surprise, he's in a cranky mood.

Here's what EM had to say about it..

"Apparently, MTV doesn't care that I have two massive stadium shows on the other side of the country the day after the VMAs. F me, right?!?!"

"I mean, I'll be there, but don't expect me to be nice about it."

seriously??

Anyways! Here's the full list of nominees along with my expert predictions and analysis ;)

BEST COLLABORATION
B.o.B feat. Hayley Williams - “Airplanes”
Beyonce feat. Lady Gaga - “Video Phone”
Lady Gaga feat. Beyonce - “Telephone”
3OH!3 feat. Ke$ha - “My First Kiss”
Jay-Z & Alicia Keys - “Empire State of Mind”

So far it seems like this is gonna be the toughest competition.. Keeping in mind here that we're talking about the VIDEOS and not just the song, the three frontrunners will prolly be Airplanes, Telephone and Empire State of mind.

SHOULD win: Telephone
WILL win: Telephone



BEST FEMALE VIDEO
Lady Gaga - “Bad Romance”
Ke$ha - “Tik Tok”
Katy Perry feat. Snoop Dogg - “California Gurls”
Beyonce feat. Lady Gaga - “Video Phone”
Taylor Swift - “Fifteen”

Bad Romance is so incredible but I can't count Katy Perry out.

SHOULD win: Bad Romance
WILL Win: Bad Romance


BEST MALE VIDEO
Eminem - “Not Afraid”
Usher feat. Will.i.am - “OMG”
B.o.B feat. Hayley Williams - “Airplanes”
Drake - “Find Your Love”
Jason Derulo - “In My Head”

This one is tough because it seems like Em is slated to win but really, is his video more impressive than OMG? Not that OMG is life changing but as far as dancing, visuals and editing go.. it has a lot more going for it

SHOULD win: OMG
WILL win: Not Afraid


BEST HIP HOP VIDEO
B.o.B feat. Hayley Williams - “Airplanes”
Eminem - “Not Afraid”
Drake, Kanye West, Lil Wayne & Eminem - “Forever”
Jay-Z & Swizz Beatz - “On To The Next One”
Kid Cudi feat. MGMT & Ratatat - “Pursuit of Happiness”

None of these videos is fit to win! Eminem's video is NOT impressive. It's mostly just him rapping in a basement and walking down a city street. Looking anorexic and washed up and pathetic. There is NOTHING impressive about it.

Forever is a good song but whats with the video? An homage to Lebron James? I think it's distracting to throw something like that in a video.

Airplanes isn't even that impressive of a video either. Nor is On to the Next One. Though I really like that song.

SHOULD WIN: none
WILL WIN: Airplanes, I guess



BEST NEW ARTIST
Ke$ha
Jason Derulo
Justin Bieber
Nicki Minaj
Broken Bells

Ugghh don't make me choose between the two evils.. Bieber and Kesha

SHOULD WIN: Bieber
WILL WIN: Kesha



BEST POP VIDEO
Lady Gaga - “Bad Romance”
Katy Perry feat. Snoop Dogg - “California Gurls”
Ke$ha - “Tik Tok”
Beyonce feat. Lady Gaga - “Video Phone”
B.o.B feat. Bruno Mars - “Nothing on You”

If there is such thing as a merciful God Kesha will not win. Actually, I wouldnt be surprised if they gave this one to Katy Perry. California Gurls is the complete embodiment of the sugary, pop-tastic video. They'll feel an obligation
to give her some kind of recognition, so I think the pop category would be most fitting than any other. Even though Bad Romance is still a better video.

SHOULD win: Bad Romance
WILL win: California Gurls



BEST ROCK VIDEO
30 Seconds To Mars - “Kings and Queens”
Muse - “Uprising”
Paramore - “Ignorance”
Florence + the Machine - “Dog Days Are Over”
MGMT - “Flash Delirium

No Idea. I'll just go with Paramore because I like them.


BEST DANCE MUSIC VIDEO
Lady Gaga - “Bad Romance”
Enrique Iglesias feat. Pitbull - “I Like It”
Cascada - “Evacuate The Dancefloor”
David Guetta feat. Akon - “Sexy Chick”
Usher feat. Will.i.am - “OMG”

This should be a no brainer. The only competition for Bad Romance is OMG because the last 3 are nothing.

SHOULD win: Bad Romance
WILL win: Bad Romance


VIDEO OF THE YEAR
Lady Gaga - “Bad Romance”
Florence + the Machine - “Dog Days Are Over”
30 Seconds to Mars - “Kings and Queens”
Lady Gaga feat. Beyonce - “Telephone”
Eminem - “Not Afraid”
B.o.B feat. Hayley Williams - “Airplanes”

This is defs a Gaga vs. Gaga situation. It's either Bad Romance or Telephone.

Its deserved by both and either one could take it. I'd prefer Bad Romance but I'd be happy if Telephone won too.


BEST ART DIRECTION
Lady Gaga - “Bad Romance”
Florence + the Machine - “Dog Days Are Over”
30 Seconds to Mars - “Kings and Queens”
Eminem - “Not Afraid”
Beyonce feat. Lady Gaga - “Video Phone”

This is nopt even a competition.

SHOULD win: Bad Romance
WILL win: Bad Romance


BEST CHOREOGRAPHY
Lady Gaga - “Bad Romance”
Lady Gaga feat. Beyonce - “Telephone”
Beyonce feat. Lady Gaga - “Video Phone”
Usher feat. Will.i.am - “OMG”
Janelle Monae feat. Big Boi - “Tightrope”


I have to go with OMG. Telephones choreography was cool but just Meh for me. And I love Bad Romance's choreography but it's pretty basic.

SHOULD win: OMG
WILL win: OMG



BEST CINEMATOGRAPHY
Eminem - “Not Afraid”
Jay-Z & Alicia Keys - “Empire State of Mind”
Lady Gaga - “Bad Romance”
Mumford and Sons - “Little Lion Man”
Florence + the Machine - “Dog Days Are Over”


Duh. Bad Romance


BEST EDITING
Lady Gaga - “Bad Romance”
Eminem - “Not Afraid”
Rihanna - “Rude Boy”
Pink - “Funhouse”
Miike Snow - “Animal”


I'm actually gonna vote Rude Boy on this one. I actually wrote on here when it first came out that whoever edited that shit deserved PROPS. That video was all over the place, in the best way. Colors, shapes, close ups, backgrounds, everything! Bad Romance was visually impressive but in different ways. Mostly the costumes and some effects. So yes, for editing, I give this one to Riri

SHOULD win: Rude Boy
WILL win: ehhh..I really can't say. Let's go with Rude Boy


BEST SFX
Lady Gaga - “Bad Romance”
Eminem - “Not Afraid”
Muse - “Uprising”
Green Day - “21st Century Breakdown”
Dan Black - “Symphonies


What does SFX mean? Sound effects? I'll go with that.

Bad Romance.


BREAKTHROUGH VIDEO
Dan Black - “Symphonies”
Gorillaz feat. Bobby Womack & Mos Def - “Stylo”
Coldplay - “Strawberry Swing”
The Black Keys - “Tighten Up”

Huh? NO idea.

And that wraps it up!! Any critiques??

Make sure to tune in to the VMAs live from Los Angeles on September 12 at 9 pm.

Pot calling the kettle black

In the latest issue of Rolling Stone, Katy Perry addresses calling Lady Gaga's Alejandro video "blasphemy"

"I am sensitive to Russell taking the Lord’s name in vain and to Lady Gaga putting a rosary in her mouth. I think when you put sex and spirituality in the same bottle and shake it up, bad things happen. Yes, I said I kissed a girl. But I didn’t say I kissed a girl while f-ing a crucifix.”

Shut up Katy!! Like you're just the picture of Christianity. Look at your boobs hanging out on the cover of the magazine! I don't have a problem with that at all but she is certainly sounding hypocritical. She's doing a LOT of things that would be frowned upon in the Christian religion but she's too busy pointing the finger at others to realize.

She famously proclaimed she'd "rather die" than take a vow of celibacy.Here's some other Christian lyrics from Katy

"You PMS like a bitch"

"I hope you hang yourself with your H+M scarf while jacking off listening to Mozart"

Be quiet and stick to squirting whipped-cream out of your tits in your videos.

Am I being won over to the dark side??

That wasn't intended to be a pun..but whatever. I've been kind of a Nicki Minaj hater becuase she just seems so grimy and nasty... but I must admit in the last few weeks she's been growing on me. First her guest spot on Drake's song "Up all night" is pretty damn good. And I was surprised that I really like her newest single "Your Love". So I was definitely warming up to her but still reluctant until I chanced to switch to a channel showing the music video of Diddy's "Hello Goodmorning" remix RIGHT as Nicki's verse begins. Hellllooooo... straight-up SICK. I loved the inflections and emphasis she put on on the words.. and the visuals of her make up and hair and movements.. I can't help it. It's very reminicient of Eve's Tambourine vid actually.. with the bright hair and makeup and badass attitude. And you know I love that.

So.. I guess I'm converted?

Here's the clip of her verse.

A must-watch for any Kardashian fan

This is a freakin hilarious parody by Perez Hilton of Katy Perry's "California Gurls"..but about the Kardashian sisters. hehehehe

STFU, Eva Mendes

This trick again...
Photobucket

Here's what (s)he had to say to Allure, "(When) Other actresses who aren't thought of, maybe, as being quite as attractive do full-frontal, they're called brave. Nobody has ever said, 'Eva, you're so brave for doing full-frontal nudity.' Just because I'm attractive doesn't mean it's still not scary. Why am I not brave?"


Really? You're attractive?


Actually, I'll give this one to her. You have to be pretty brave to do full frontal as a post-op male-to-female.

Drake about to beat Weezy?

Photobucket

Drake's MUCH awaited debut album is released today. He's the hottest rapper out there right now and this CD had more collabos with big names (Alicia Keys, Nicki Minaj, Swizz Beatz, T.I., The Dream, Young Jeezy, Jay-Z, Lil Wayne, and Kanye, as a producer)than probably any other CD out this year! Drake has been Lil Wayne's protege and now that Weezy is in jail, Drake's pretty much the only one holding down Young Money for the time being. But that's really all they need because the man is on fire!! (Which makes me awesome because I've already seen him live, BEFORE all you people going to see him at Summer Jam this week)

People have been waiting for an official studio album from Drake for over a year now.. so the question is, will Drake beat Wayne's milli in album sales the first week of release?? I think YES.

We will see, we will see! I'm literally about to go buy mine as soon as I sign off here. Happy Listening!

ALE-ALEJANDRO!

Aww Shit! This video man.. I'd say second best only to Bad Romance. Gaga is really making this into an art form. Her videos lately have been soo hotly awaited and then when you finally see them, not only are they visually stunning but they need to be dissected and interpreted. I just now saw the video and I'm trying to put it all together.. there's an obvious homo-erotic military theme, mixed with Catholicism.. Was it Alejandro that was dead at the beginning? And the rest of the video is flashbacks? What is the significance of the evil queen-Gaga at the beginning?
Mmm God I love it.
She did what Christina failed to do with Not Myself Tonight. Both have overt- sexuality but Alejandro brought something new. Christina's use of domination was obvious and not creative. The domination in Alejandro takes a differnt turn when the guy is shown wearing stockings and heels.. and features not an obviously vampy, made-up dominatrix (Xtina), but a surprisingly bare-faced Lady Gaga. Not completely but it's definitely the most bare-faced I've seen her. No showy costume, no crazy wig, bare minimum make up. That alone is kind of shocking, considering who we're talking about. Especially considering being the dominator is supposedly a position of power but she looks more weak and vulnerable than anything else. What is she trying to say with that?

Here it is, Alejandro:

MTV needs to stop having such a Twilight boner.

2010 MTV movie awards AKA the Twilight show.

No pics for this one cuz the movie awards aren't really geared towards extreme fashion or crazy eye-popping performances. Let's jump right in..

Best Female performance- KRISTIN Stewart. I refered to her as KIMBO to Eva, and have been referring to her as Kimbo Stewart for the past year and I finally realized KIMBO Stewart is someone else, Rod Stewart's daughter! LOL Why have I been calling her Kimbo? Her name is Kristin... hahahah my bad. I'm obviously a huge fan.

Best Breakout Star- Anna Kendrick. That's bullshit. She was so harpy and annoying in "Up in thr Air". The bearded dude from Hangover should have won. no brainer.

Cutting to different celebs in the audience and I spied Lindsay Lohan! Shoot, what else does she have going on? If anyone questions why she's there, don't forget she hosted the MTV movie awards in 2004-the youngest host ever @ age 17.

Then "Les Grossman" (Played by Tom Cruise) does this ghetto dance number.. Considering this was Tom Cruise, it was pretty impressive. Tom's got SWAG! And then I was completely thrown off when I hear "Get Right" come on by J.lo.. and then she pops out and does some choreography. SO random. Of all songs.. Get Right? Some song that never got popular, but was mainly just made fun of for the excessive horns or whatever hell instrument its suposed to be. 5 YEARS ago. I just didn't understand why.

Scared as Shit Award: Amanda Seyfried in Jennifer's Body.

Best Kiss: Kristin Stewart and Robert Pattinson. Taylor Lautner and Taylor Swift were nominated for Valentines Day and I was really hoping they'd win just for the sheer awkardness..

Katy Perry performance: California Gurls. SO over her. I saw her in concert last summer and loved it.. I relate to her songs but I've just had it with her pin-up-too-cute-and-innocent-yet-secretly-naughty act. One of the Boys is a solid album and I dont know what else she has up her shiny sleeve with her new CD but this California Gurls song is straght up shit. Terrible! And I'm a California girl myself so you know its gotta be bad if I'm rejecting it.

Generation Award: Sandra Bullock. Looking HOT for a second night in a row to accept in a sliky backless dress with nude heels. ScarJo is up there presenting to her and then they kiss... what!

Best WTF momemt: Ken Jeoung AKA Asian guy from Hangover

Best Villain: Tom Felton from Harry Potter. This makes me realize that Harry Potter has been plaguing my existance for TEN YEARS now.

Biggest Badass Star: "Rain" who the fuck

Sneak Peak at Eclipse..... 5 minutes I'll never get back.

Best Male Performance: ROb Pattinson.

Now time for Christina's big performance. gotta hype her album Bionic that comes out this week.. amidst the copy-cat criticisms Xtina has a lot riding on this performace. Sooo she starts out with "Bionic" and I kinda like it. Hits some impressive high notes. Then segue into "Not myself tonight" and she performs basically everything the same from the video. Grabbed a male dancers face and shoved it into her crotch. Then trasition into that terrible wreck of a song "Woohoo" Complete with a flashing heart over her vagina.
So overall grade of the performace..too obvious? boring? expected? She didn't do anything that we haven't already seen-either in her video or from Adam Lambert 6 months ago at the AMAs. Even the flashing heart thing.. Kanye did that at the 2008 VMA. except not over his vagina. She failed to bring it. Sorry.
Vocally it was her usual Christina level-that is, amazing. But for stage presence and excitement and bringing something new or unexpected? What did she do that was unexpected? I guess the flashing heart was as far as she was willing to go. Sorry, I'm not a hater I'm just calling it like it is, When you're at that level, you really have to bring it. Like Gaga performing Paparrazzi at the VMAs-she did something different from the video and totally unexpected. Or Pink at the Grammys- something different and unexpected and WAY inpressive with her acrobatics. Time to raise the bar Xtina!!

Best Comedic Performace: Zack Galifinakis

Best Movie: take a wild fucking guess. CLUE: see best Male performance, Best Female performance and Best Kiss.

Sandy's looking good!

Sandra Bullock made her first public appearance since her marriage scandal last night at Spike TV guy's choice awards last night. She won the troops' choice award for entertainer of the year and was looking HOT! This is the best I have ever seen her look. She is just smokin in that skin-tight leather dress.. Go Sandy!

Meh

After being soo utterly wowwed and dazzled from Rihanna's last two music videos, I won't hold this one against her. It's by no means bad. Just not quite as cool or eye-popping as the last two. Same directer...some of the same tricks... (it's time to stop with the close-ups of her lips with the snarl) but still solid. Defitnitely has some good looks towards the end.

Rockstar 101

Christina thinks people wanna see and taste her hoo-hoo.

Are you serious? This is the worst thing to come from Christina yet!! It's cheesy and disgusting! And Nicki Minaj is the equivalent of herpes to a song.. even more nasty and disgusting but she just won't go away.

Thank God Xtina cancelled her summer tour! I could not stand this being performed within 50 miles of me!!

Christina Aguilera ft. Nicki Minaj "Woohoo"

Bey goes old school!

I am liking Beyonce more and more these days. This video is soo cool! It's so different from anything out right now.

It's shot with effects that actually make it look like old vintage footage.. I love love love the whole aesthetic of the video-the editing effects, her make up, hair and costumes! Soo fab.

"Why Don't You Love Me" - Beyoncé from Beyoncé on Vimeo.

Some southern bird-tryin-to-be sexy shit

Here's Miley Cyrus's hotly anticipated new video "Can't be tamed". I saw early clips and expected it to definitely stir up talk.. she certainly does look sexy and a bit racy for a 17 year old. But more surprised at the idea of her being a squaking mutant bird on display. This is like some southern bird tryin-to-be-sexy ho-down shit.

I'm one for catchy pop but this song isn't impressive. Yeah it might be fun to dance to but its not really anything standout.

Judge for yourself.

I know I'm not the only one who drools when I see her.

Friday, April 30, 2010

I had high hopes for this video..

But alas I am disappointed. Why? I wanted to see something different. Something cutting edge, especially with her re-inventing herself yet again with this new "Bionic" theme. I feel like this was pretty expected. Don't get me wrong- I love overt sexuality, but I feel like this was a second attempt at "Dirrty" shock-value.

On the same note of wanting something different.. I could maybe handle it for just being unorginal but girl straight up jacks several looks and imagery from other videos! Namely Gaga!! Are you serious?? I've already said this! You are already coming under fire for jacking her style. You must tread carefully around anything sounding/looking like Gaga.. but no. Xtina goes there. Straight up!

I'll show you..



Eye Stickers/ Jeweled ornamentation in the video at 0:12.
Careful Christina, Gaga's been doing that...

The Most shameless and completely obvious. Definitely check this one out. Same Carrara glasses shot with the red lips as this at 0:20 in the vid. Really?

Photobucket



Gaga's Pokerface eye-circle imagery at 0:55
Photobucket


The 1:27-1:29 look is just wayy too Gwen Stefani for me. The Pin-up bangs with slicked back pony and red lips. Winged liner. That's essential Gwen Stefani to me.

Photobucket

Photobucket

.. And the pleather-ish bra she's wearing in that same look actually..
Photobucket

And towards the end pouring tar on herself.. thats already been overdone. By Christina Millian in the "Dip it low" video. Or by Shakira all covered in tar in the "La Tortura" video.

And how things start to catch fire in the ends... a la Bad Romance...


*sigh*

I really wanted to like this video.. But I suppose all is not lost. It loses major points for the rip-off imagery but I must say I do love the 1:03 boob-grab, the girl-on girl scene and the end scenes when shes wearing the red lingerie with the guy on the bed. Not to say those things havent been done before but I feel like they're common enough to not to attributed to "copying" any one video.

hmmm..on a side note though.. Someone who's obviously taking other people's ideas should NOT be allowed to be this bitchy..

She's back!

Omg I completely freaked out when I heard Christina had a new song! I didn't even know she was working on a new album. Look at the cover artwork!! It's so different from what I'd expect from her. Man. You have to give her credit. Christina switches it up every single time. She's constantly reinventing herself. Gotta love it, she keeps things interesting.

BUT. While I think this is all amazing and exciting, girl has already come under fire for ripping off Gaga. Like, before I even knew who Gaga was. It's kind of undeniable. (This was around the time she relased "Keeps gettin better") And what's also undeniable is that this new vibe is TOTALLY electro pop a la Gaga.

Just noting an obvious similarity. I still love it though.

Lessons on being a lady by Kesha

Some of her craziest moments:

Vomiting in Paris Hilton's closet-
I thought it was the bathroom! It was Nicky's birthday and we went to her house. I think we danced a little too hard.

Peeing in a British sink with Lily Allen-
The line was really long and there were paparazzi outside, so I didn't have too many options. It was pee in a corner or pee in the sink. The sink seemed prettier.

Breaking into Prince's house-
In order to give him a demo, I paid his gardener 5 bucks to let me sneak onto his property. His door was unlocked to I let myself in. I mean, what would you do if Prince's door was unlocked?

Robbing David Spade-
He thought I was trying to mack on him, but he wasn't having it, so I stole a bottle of whiskey and ran into the bathroom with it, Security came in, knocked the door down, and took me outside.

And some interview questions...

In "Party at a Rich Dude's House", you sing about "pissin' in the Dom Perignon". Really?
That one is about me and my friends getting bored in L.A. and crashing house parties. Cruise, crash, destroy..then bail. Anyway, I think champagne is gross and kind of tastes like pee. So to show my disdain for it, I pee in the bottles.

You sound like a real party girl.
That depends. You've got to define "party girl". If you mean I'm a walking good time, then hells yeah. But I'm not wasted and stumbling out of clubs and getting DUIs. I'm not that kind of party girl. I may be blonde and fun as balls, but I'm not a moron.

Do you have a boyfriend now?
No, no boyfriend. I mean, if I met a chubby, bearded man with glasses, who didn't mind being covered in glitter, maybe we could talk. I have yet to find such a man.

Yeah, you seem to really love glitter.
If you're wearing glitter and make out with a dude witha beard-which are the only kind I make out with anyways-it stays there for at least three days. it makes it look like they've been with a stripper, so no other girls will make out with him.

In you smash hit "TiK ToK", you say you "brush your teeth with a bottle of Jack". Have you ever actually brushed your teeth with Jack Daniels?
I have. I woke up in Vegas once and there was no toothpaste but there was some leftover Jack Daniels. I figured it would be good for my morning breath.

So have you ever done shots of Colgate?
Shots of Colgate? No. That's so ghetto.



Does Kesha even HAVE a PR person? What a piece of garbage.
