Gaga as a Nymph


Is it me or it is weird to see Lady Gaga with almost no make up on?

Simple as 1+1


Beyonce’s latest video is out. I absolutely love the song, and the video does it justice. It is so simple and open and pure, just like real love.

It is great to see a singer in a simple kind of way. Without hype. Without much glamour. Without crazy clothes, hair, make up or a ton of props. Just talent and voice. That’s what music is all about right?

New Rihanna…. and Avril?


Rihanna’s new vid is out. It’s Cheers (Drink to That), the third track from her last album Loud .

The video is cool! I am a big fan of music videos from real life settings travel, concerts, fan meet-ups… It just seems so real and makes the “stars” from the glossy videos a bit more reachable and human. And of course in this video we can see all the different hairstyles the blogosphere has been writing about, as well as the high-waisted hot pants. Hot or not?

However on a first listen, there was something that bothered me in the song. The “Yeah Yeah” part after each verse was very familiar, and I realized with the help of google that it is Avril Lavigne’s song  ‘”I’m with You”.  Check out Avriln’s video after 2:21. So my most normal question is – is it ripped off or is it a collaboration? I’m pretty sure Avril is in Rihanna’s video, above, but hell… if you put a key phrase from someone else’s song, quote them in the title! It’s not that hard!

 

It’s a Hathaway Day


Anne Hathaway is one of my fave celebs. She is natural, funny and carries some kind of spark that is very hard to define. So first thing today, when going through my google reader I saw a wonderful photo session, Anne had for Interview Mag. It is gorgeous, exquisite, a bit goth, but very powerful imagery. I love the sinister and very dramatic set, with the lace and feathers, and of course the dark nails and makeup juxtapositioned with the white skin. It is simply gorgeous.

So I kept on reading stuff and there goes another Anne Hathaway piece. A youtube clip from a couple of days ago featuring Anne rapping away. It is hilarious! So there you go – from an angelic goth-like amazing photoshoot to being fun and crazy in the style of lil’Wayne.

Yoü And I and Gaga


She’s a mermaid. No! She’s a dude! No! She’s a high fashion robot in the mid-west! Oh, no, it’s just Gaga.

The new video for her latest track – You and I is out, and it’s cray-zey, a bit creepy, a tad fetishist and as always kinda weird, but of course, the fashion is just fab! Here you go… what do you think?

I got gadgets and gizmos a plenty!


Have you ever felt like you have everything and still there is something missing. I was talking with one of my incredibly witty friends tonight and explaining how I feel, and that it is so bizarre.  Her words were  “You feel like the little mermaid or Belle. I want adventure in the great wide somewhere…or look at this stuff, isn’t it neat, wouldn’t you think my collection’s complete?? I’m a girl,a girl who has everything??”
So here is a song, and a post for all the people who should be happy and satisfied, but there is always something out there, something more, something to reach for, even if you don’t know exactly what it is. Perhaps it is a new thing for our generation; a quarter-life crisis for people who have seen, tasted and experienced more in the first twenty-something years of their life.

The Fashion of Move


I am a very visual person – I think in images, remember faces, like painting pictures, so when I see something beautiful, it strikes my fancy.  But then when you make that beautiful imagery move and then you add a beat, you create a masterpiece.

I read today on PR Couture about La Jolla Fashion Film Festival  and couldn’t help but share what I saw.  Crosby shares her top favorite pieces, but there is one that I think is amazing. Fashion film and dance and beat, it is a masterpiece for the senses.

RIP Amy Winehouse


Amy Winehouse was found dead in her London flat yesterday. The reasons are yet to be confirmed, but Perez Hilton announced that drugs are less likely to be the mail reason for the songstress untimely death.

I must say I am not the biggest fan and completely believe she is a terrible role model, but her talent was truly great and she did a lot for the contemporary soul music. It is so incredibly sad that such talent and unique voice was lost. She will be missed.

The Daily Mail published a long piece on Amy – ups and downs, drugs and all.

 

 

The year of 4: Beyonce for real


I am a sucker for documentaries, and when it is inspiring and touching and real, it just makes me warm and fuzzy on the inside.

Beyonce is so open in this documentary, very true to herself, down to earth and shows us the journey she has been through in the creation of the new album.

The most exciting lesson for me “you need to live a life and open your eyes. you don’t want to wake up with no memories, and never really being able to see the world.” So true. Thank you, B.
