This song is so good. I can’t even think of what else to say because I’m too distracted by how good this song is.
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…
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.
God bless Mark Ronson for many reasons. One of which is bringing Mystikal back. I bet you didn’t realize how much you missed Mystikal. I think this song is pretty perfect. It’s been overshadowed by “Uptown Funk” and yet they still made this phenomenal music video. My jaw was to the floor the whole time.
I love every single frame of this video. Every. SINGLE. Frame. Charli XCX is my number 1 Euro Lady Crush. l mean, look at her. She’s so cool.
Mon Dieu. I have a lot of Euro lady crushes lately, and this Swede is toward the top of the list. Queen of the Clouds has been in my rotation for quite a few months, and I have now realized that it is one of my favorite albums ever. And I do mean it when I say EVER. It’s a concept album, and all the songs center around her relationships, taking you through all the stages – The Sex, The Love, and The Pain. And boy is she honest. This album takes you on Tove Lo’s Wild Ride.
This girl is an amazing songwriter. So much so that she’s pumping ’em out for everybody else too. She penned the Fifty Shades of Grey theme “Love Me Like You Do,” sung by fellow Euro lady crush Ellie Goulding. She also co-wrote Hilary Duff’s new single “Sparks.” Don’t lie, you love both of those songs. The point is, her songwriting is what makes this album such a masterpiece. I don’t even have a “skip song” on this album. There is always ONE skip song!
Then, you have this little thing about how she’s super DUPER sexy. She is fierce, she is confident, and she is sexual. And I love it. It’s like she takes the most brutal, most exciting, and most terrifying emotions a person can have, and she turns them into fucking great music. Female artists are making a comeback in a big way, and it is exciting. We are women, hear us ROAR. And curse. And sing about sex. And drugs. And love our bodies. And show off our bodies. Maybe a little too much? Nah!
Recently, I discovered that I love Ariana Grande’s latest single “One Last Time” and it was my favorite song for like TWO WEEKS. It’s my favorite song of hers, by far. There’s no obnoxious falsetto, it’s a beautiful song, and catchy as hell. Today, as Jimmy and I were having a music video binge, I decided to watch the video for this song. How exciting! Nope. Turns out instead of making a beautiful video to match a heartbreaking song, she chooses to make a pretty awful Cloverfield fan film. I feel this is a huge miss. Lame.
Here’s the video if you wanna waste some time:
This is a double feature, folks! This is another song that instantly makes me happy. That Bonnie McKee knows how to write ’em. Enjoy the official music video and/or watch the celeb-packed version. I like the celeb version because Katy Perry.
The Step Up Series is very near and dear to Jimmy and me. We love them SO much. Step Up: Revolution was the fourth installment of the Step Up franchise. After the disastrous Step Up: 3D, the crew came back with a spectacular fourth film, Step Up: Revolution. One of our all-time favorite Step Up dances comes from this film. It’s just MAGICAL. But Jimmy made it even MORE MAGICAL. See what happens when he replaces the music that was in the movie with “Lost & Found” by Katie Herzig. It’s just the greatest thing ever. Please enjoy.
This is the way to this lady’s heart. Harry Potter wrapping Alphabet Aerobics. If he were in full Gryffindor gear, you may have had to pick me up on the floor.
