PVOTD: “Good For You” by Selena Gomez

It took me a minute on this one.  Just a minute, though.  I had to get over my expectation of an upbeat “Birthday”-like single.  After a few listens, I realized that this song is amazing.  I love both versions – the video is a basic one, the single has A$AP Rocky.  Gawd the A$AP Rocky addition is good though.  I recommend listening to it without the video.  The video is beautiful and she’s sexy as hell.  But guys, she still looks like she’s 15.  I know!  She’s 23.  But I can’t.

PVOTD: “Blue” by Marina and the Diamonds

It’s a TWOFER!  I just don’t think anyone should go their whole Friday without watching this video.  I’m on the third watch, myself.  Respect to director Charlotte Rutherford.  This video is just as magical as the song, making almost four minutes of heaven.  This girl has stolen my pop music lovin’ heart.

PVOTD: “How to be a Heartbreaker” by Marina and the Diamonds

 

I have a big fat crush on Marina and the Diamonds.  She is so damn talented, gorgeous, and her music is crazy fun.  I think the Brits and the Euros get it, but I don’t think Americans get it yet.  Electra Heart is one of my favorite albums and a welcome addition to my regular music rotation.

PVOTD: “I Will Never Let You Down” by Rita Ora

Rita Ora hasn’t really hit it huge yet, but she’s will.  Just you wait.  There are a lot of redeeming qualities about this video, but my favorite is the editing.  It cuts so well to the song, and the video builds perfectly with the song.  It is a super refreshing, simple video that is sexy as hell and a Moschino Fan’s dream.

PVOTD: “Cool For the Summer” by Demi Lovato

You’re gonna need a cold shower after this one.  I’m so in love with this song and this girl.  She’s one of the hottest females on the planet right now.  There’s something magical about this song, and I don’t foresee it getting old anytime soon.  It’s one of those Max Martin Masterpieces.

“Dollhouse” by Kourtney, Kim, and Khloé Kardashian

Dollhouse

I have a lot of love for these ladies.  They don’t give two fucks.  Actually, they don’t give any fucks.  I respect that.  I also happen to think they’re hilarious and entertaining as hell.  Do I think they’re good at writing novels?  Not really.  To be fair, they didn’t write this shit.

I’ll say this – have you ever seen an episode of Passions?  It was a Soap Opera in the early 2000s that had a fantastical vibe – there were witches and magic and shit.  Anyway, I would equate this book to that show.  It’s a quick read, it’s pretty funny for the most part (as you can see by the quote I chose) and you don’t really have to be paying attention while you read to put it all together in the end.

And I had to know.  I had to.

PVOTD: “Grown Woman” by Beyoncé

The other day, my mom emailed me an article about how Iggy Azalea’s career is over and how she’s racist and homophobic, blah, blah, blah.  My mom was concerned, because I love Iggy (I wrote a blog about it). The article made me laugh a little bit, then I thought of this Beyoncé video.  The song is pretty self explanatory.  The video is INCREDIBLE and one of my favorites of all time.  It features Baby Beyoncé, Beauty Queen Yoncé, and even Amazon Yoncé.  I could, and do, watch it all day.

Point is, everyone is a critic.  Iggy is a racist, Miley is a whore, Meghan Trainor is ruining America.  Haters gonna hate.  Meanwhile, these bitches be like…

“‘J’ is for Judgement” by Sue Grafton

JisforJudgement

Another one down.  This one was kinda depressing as far as main storyline went, but it was great everywhere else.  Kinsey finds out she has family nearby – bummer.  Rosie and Henry’s brother are getting married – gasp!  But no collateral damage done on this one.  No bullet wounds or concussions suffered.  Just blows to the heart.

How could I not write that?  It was staring me in the face!  Anyway, K is for Killer.

PVOTD: “I Really Like You” by Carly Rae Jepsen

AAAND she’s back.  I honest to god did not see this coming.  Touché, Miss. J.  I think this song is so fun, so catchy, and a legitimate follow-up to “Call Me Maybe.”  Even Biebs makes an appearance in this one.  Oh yeah, and then there’s Tom Hanks.

Mic Drop.
