Lana Del What The Hell Is This?

Yes, I usually praise Saturday Night Live for their musical guest choices, but they failed miserably this week by booking Lana Del Rey. All I knew about Del Rey before I watched her was that Perez Hilton was hyping her up as one of the “next big things” in pop music on his blog. Uh….even he has admitted after SNL, he’s not so sure. Sure, you can blame nerves, but if you have a record deal, nerves is no excuse for your first American major television appearance. I honestly thought it was a joke or a skit at first. This is so bad, I totally skipped her second performance. Listen and watch if you dare.
I mean what kind of artist is she? An Adele???? Oh hell no! When I went to look her up on Wikipedia, I could not believe my eyes when one of her quotes said she sees herself as a “gangsta Nancy Sinatra” what the hell does that even mean? She’s apparently trying to build a fan base overseas, let’s just hope she stays there. SNL FAIL!

Too Gay, Huh?: The AMA Recap…

Take two!…I was blogging and I decided to insert a video of Carrie Underwood’s horrible performance of “Cowboy Casanova” and POOF!…I erased all of my post!…I’m very angry right now!…thus, I am going with a new plan…hit the highlights!…and yes, we’ll get to Adam Lambert, Lady GaGa, Whitney Houston, Rhianna, and Janet Jackson…in fact, we’ll start with Janet…the ABC promos included this line “8 minutes of Janet Jackson to open the show”…she clocked in at a little over 7…Jackson performed a medley of her biggest hits, slipping in her new single, “Make Me”…there was a lot of old school choreography, which was a thrill…I used to know the “I Miss You Much” routine…LOL!…Paula Abdul presented the first award, Best Pop/Rock Group, to the Black Eyed Peas, other awards in first hour: Best Country Band/Duo/Group-Rascal Flatts, Best Pop/Rock Female-Taylor Swift (absent from the ceremony and she constantly had the “I’m so shocked to win this award” look on her face), Alternative Rock Artist-Green Day… best performance of the hour?…Shakira! Ferosh!

The second hour began with Nicole Kidman and Kate Hudson-who lost her boobs in her dress-introducing their NINE co-star Fergie and the Black Eyed Peas…great performance!…although I was a bit scared when the speakers started dancing during “Boom Boom Pow”…yikes!…also, at the end of the performance, Will.I.Am proclaimed, “Six months No. 1, the new kings!”…?????…all righty then….Michael Jackson, posthumously, won 4 awards, all accepted by brother Jermaine…at one point, Jermaine and sons, Jerfar, Jermajesty, and Jeremy helped accept…get that?…Jackson won two awards that were televised…Best Soul/R&B Male and Best Pop/Rock Male…American Idol winner, Kris Allen was only there to present an award with tweener Demi Lovato…so sad…Rhianna’s performance was freaky and underwhelming…I swear, her outfit was left over from either Lady GaGa or the “Disturbia” video shoot…I guess when Chris Brown beat her abused her, he took the talent out of her too!…okay, since Carrie Underwood destroyed my original post, I will NOT be posting her train wreck of a performance of “Cowboy Casanova”…she was not meant to dance, I’ll just leave it at that…well, all mediocrity was erased by Lady GaGa:


TAKE THAT DICK CLARK!…right after GaGa, her husband, Perez Hilton, did a quick backstage filler…including the joke, “I ran into Derek Hough (DWTS) in the men’s room” (wink!)…oh that Perez!…Mary J. Blige killed it of course…then the biggest shock of the night, besides Adam Lambert, came when the winner of the T-Mobile Breakthrough Artist was announced…GaGa was up for it, but country upstart group, Gloriana won?!?…yes, I know Gloriana, I work at a country station, but WTF?…they started their speech by saying “I’m guessing you are wondering who Gloriana is?”…the one person I saw the camera flash to in the audience? Jai Rodriguez…LMAO!… next, the Jennifer Lopez performance of “Louboutins”…and yes, she fell on her ass…I won’t bore you with it, because it wasn’t much and really, she’s not much either…moving on…

Hour three started with Samuel L. Jackson presenting the International Artist of the Year award to, ahem, Whitney Houston…who then attempted to sing “Didn’t Know My Own Strength”…folks, she’s still sweaty and her vocal register is much lower than it used to be…I just don’t know…yes, you can blame drugs, but is seems her confidence is not what it used to be either…so sad…Alicia Keys got to perform solo, after her duet with Jay-Z earlier in the evening (“Empire State of Mind”)…and I didn’t like the solo song or performance…she’s another one who is not a fan of the dance…sitting at a piano?…yes…I had seen Seth Green in the audience several times and I wondered why?…he introduced Eminem and 50 Cent…Em didn’t win anything, but I’m sure he doesn’t care..he has an Oscar for God’s sake!…another underwhelming performance? Timbaland with Nelly Furtado and Say So (a new female protege)…it paid a slight tribute to Michael Jackson’s “Thriller”…V star, Morena Baccarin and FlashForward star, Dominic Monaghan introduced Green Day…I like “21 Guns”…however, when you look at the landscape of pop music today, Green Day sort of looks out of place, not to mention Kings of Leon, who were nominated for multiple awards, including Artist of the Year…well, after Jay-Z took the Rap/Hip-Hop Male award…Ryan Seacrest presented the Artist of the Year award to Taylor Swift in London…again, I’m sick of her “shocked” face!…well, Taylor should have reserved her shocked expression for what happened next, Adam Lambert!…Rolling Stone did a follow up story on Lambert’s crazy, sex-fueled performance of “For Your Entertainment”…apparently, ABC pulled the simulated oral sex move with the guy, you know, Glambert shoved the guy’s face into his crotch?…from the West coast broadcast…but they didn’t remove the moment when Lambert grabbed his “straight” keyboard player for a deep throat session…here’s one quote from Lambert from the Rolling Stone blurb:
“Adrenaline is crazy and sometimes things just happen,” said Lambert after the show. “We had this great dance number totally staged. It’s a sexy song about seduction and power and I was just doing the lyrics justice. My intention was not to try and create a controversy. But if a controversy ensues, then so be it.”


I think we will end on that note….oh yeah, buy Adam Lambert’s For Your Entertainment and Lady GaGa’s The Fame Monster today or sometime this week!…I’ll be buying my copies Tuesday!…I’m pumped!


Later!

I Will Never Understand Other Cultures…

Over the weekend, I was alerted to a “Poker Face” parody via Perez Hilton sending a tweet to Lady GaGa to check it out…all I can say is “is this what kids do for fun in other countries?”…The 2 Cool Guys hail from Finland…I can’t even begin to explain what is being said or what is going on in this home made video…I can tell you that drug trips are still popular and the blond kid may or may not be a boy…here it is:


UPDATE: here are the lyrics translated into English…

Happy Weekend all!…come back for next week’s recap!

A Case When a Label is a Good Thing…

Okay, I know Perez Hilton has not been very nice as of late…which you wonder, when is he nice?…we had the whole Black Eyed Peas manager sucker punching Perez (an investigation is still pending, the manager is supposed to appear in court next month), he jumped the gun and declared Michael Jackson being rushed the hospital as a stunt so Jackson could pull out of his London tour…GALATIC OOPSIE!…I guess he sort of made amends by alerting his blog readers that Jeff Goldblum was indeed NOT dead when word of Jackson’s death was confirmed…

However, one area Perez excels at, supposedly, is as a music taste maker…after all he gave us this glorious creature:

Yes, a little over a year ago, Perez introduced the world to his gal pal, Lady GaGa…Perez is also credited for bringing stateside attention to Mika, who hasn’t blown up like GaGa, but he just might, his second album is set for release this fall…therefore, after years of speculation, Perez is finally getting his own record label imprint with Warner Bros….according to a feature story on Hilton in the new ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY, Perez plans to announce his first signee by the end of this month…and he’s very serious about entering the music industy: “I have an ear, which is really important in the music world–to be able to hear a hit and to be able to know who has a good song or not..I’m more than just an A&R person. I’m also a marketing person. I’m also a manager.”

I just hope this new venture doesn’t interfere with his 7 days a week/no vacations blogging schedule…and I hope this means I’ll get my own record label someday…anyone? anyone?

Happy Weekend!

Diva vs. Diva

Perez vs. Will.I.Am

I figure I should put in my two cents on the Perez Hilton/Will.I.Am situation…I went to Perez’s site yesterday, like I do everyday, and the first item was “My Statement”…I watched the whole thing…Wow!…who knew Perez would get assaulted, all because he didn’t like the Black Eyed Peas’ new album?…it all took place this weekend in Toronto after the MuchMusic Awards…first Fergie approached Perez during rehearsals, he explained himself, then at two after parties, Perez was confronted again, only this time, by Will.I.Am…well, at some point after Perez exited the second after party (his claim) he was punched in the eye by the BEP’s manager, who was arrested and charged with one count of assault…Perez has been sued multiple times, but NEVER physically harmed…

On the flip side, Will.I.Am is claiming all of the events didn’t happen the way Perez said they did…he claims Perez was assaulted by a random person and not the band’s manager…Perez is also getting flak for calling Will.I.Am “gay” and “faggot”…yes, Perez, gay himself, called Will.I.Am the very names I’m sure he wouldn’t want to be called…and he admitted it in his video statement!!!…if you go to Perez’s site today, there is no further mention of the incident, probably because of the ongoing investigation…(this could change later on today)….

Some people are already saying Perez got what he deserved…well, no one deserves to be physically assaulted, especially sucker punched…and it’s being said, both parties are just looking for lots of media attention, who knows?…it all boils down to watch what you say and there’s two sides to every story…

Opinions?

To Bi or Not to Bi

I read yesterday Pink did an interview with a British newspaper in which she declares herself bisexual…however, via twitter, Pink still denies everything…she told Perez Hilton via twitter “100% FABRICATION”….I’ve always loved Pink and yes she is a DIVA…but whether or not she comes out…I won’t care…she’s lovely, hot, butch, talented, everything I look for in a woman…

After a week where we saw actress Kelly McGillis come out, and then I read about Pink, I kept thinking “who’s next?”…I think we all know why Pink was put on the hot seat all of sudden….this video (which I had to link, because it can’t be embedded anymore

It begs the question….would you do yourself?….and my answer?….yes…why not? Happy Monday!
