Mariah Carey reharshed the classic song “I Want to Know What Love Is” and now has released the video for it. It’s a classic song and simple video.Here’s an interesting comment from a fan of her beautifully resuming  few things on why the hell Mariah Carey career is jumping the shark.The author could surely land a music executive job as the ones behind Mariah dont seem to “get it” …

I am nobody, just a fan of Mariah with taste and some creativity. I am very sad to see Mariah like that : not at her best vocally, awful vocal quality in live (partially sung), not caring about her image and not at the top of the chart. Despite of this, I still love her music, but Mariah can do better. I am someone frank and honest and be like that. I can’t say “amazing live!!” when it’s not (and not 100% live), I can’t say this is a wonderful clip (compared to it’s like that, or WBT).”

I love this song so much.Its reminded me the naive and immature 18 years old me whom was went in the South of France -Toulouse- to pursue a higher education.Independance being my motto, its excatly at that time that i felt the beginning of my new own life without any parents, family nearby..You know those years where friendship,the first love, formidables parties, could only lead you to see life beautifully  as if unhappiness never existed.4 Am used to found my apparttement filled with empty bottles of red, cigarettes ashes,a couples of friends “high”, the night was spent talking about the first crush on the campus, religion, recreationnal drugs and all the things that mattered to us.A truly amazing college experience that dramatically shaped my personnality as i started to “think” about the world surrounding me, to confront my own fears thus building the real ” me”.

The cover art for Rihanna’s new single “Russian Roulette.”

Rihanna is exposing her fans to more than her music with her new single, “Russian Roulette.”The singer is featured nearly topless on artwork for the song, covered only by what looks to be barbed wire.The photo fits the apparent theme for her new album, “Rated R,” which is due out Nov. 23. It will be her first CD since 2007’s “Good Girl Gone Bad,” which went multiplatinum. It will also be her first solo single since she was attacked by ex-boyfriend Chris Brown.I just listened and I have to say : I’m not impressed at all…just regular pop nothing special except the cover art

Strictly Come Dancing : Amy Winehouse

October 19, 2009

If you missed Strictly Come Dancing at the weekend, we’ve got all the action right here.More exciting than any of the celebrities’ routines, Amy Winehouse performed with her goddaughter Dionne Bromfield on Saturday night.Singing her forthcoming single Mama Said, 13-year-old Dionne did not stole the limelight from Amy, who was her backing singer.She’s cute and has a nice voice, but I really think it needed to be “tuned”-She just didn’t sound like a voice you’d hear on the radio, It sounded somehow amateur. Great start, but Ms Winehouse should work more on smoothing those tracks.According to a source, during the show, “Amy started shouting, ‘I need to see someone, my boobs are fucking killing me.’ Her manager quickly sorted a car to get her to the London Clinic.She was discharged from the hospital on Sunday and told that she needs to rest.

THE Black Eyed Peas set a new record at the weekend when they performed during a flight from Melbourne to Perth in a stunt billed as “Mile High Karaoke”. On Friday, 140 Virgin customers and competition winners climbed on to a 737-800 plane in the hope of setting a new record for the world’s highest gig. A record previously held by Jamiroquai who performed at 10,668m in 2007. The Peas soared into history by performing live and karaoke at 12,800m.The red-hot quartet of Fergie, Will.i.am, Taboo and Apl.de.Ap wowed the plane with their karaoke skills – Fergie ripping through Led Zeppelin’s Black Dog while Will.i.am attempted Barry Manilow’s Copacabana.

Michael Jackson’s ‘This Is It’ Single Debuts Online [Money Making]

October 12, 2009

Vodpod videos no longer available.

The whole song feels like a demo, they messed up.

A loyal reader- Hipolito M. Wiseman- sent me a pretty good and accurate review about Michael Jackson.As opposed to me he actually loves the tune ” This is it”.Thanks for sharing..

In late 1996, Jackson remarried, to nurse Debbie Rowe; over the next two years, the couple had two children, son Prince Michael Jackson, Jr. and daughter Paris Michael Katherine Jackson. However, Jackson and Rowe divorced in late 1999. In 2001, Jackson was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and later held a massive concert at Madison Square Garden celebrating the 30th anniversary of his first solo record.

Among many other celebrity guests, the show featured the first on-stage reunion of the Jackson since the Victory tour. In the wake of September 11, Jackson put together an all-star charity benefit single, “What More Can I Give.” His new album, Invincible, was released late in the year, marking the first time he’d issued a collection of entirely new material since Dangerous; it found him working heavily with urban soul production wizard Rodney Jerkins.

Invincible debuted at number one and quickly went double platinum; however, its initial singles, “You Rock My World” and “Butterflies,” had rather disappointing showings on the charts, with the latter not even reaching the Top Ten. To compound matters, the expensive “What More Can I Give” single and video were canceled by Sony when executive producer Marc Schaffel was revealed to work in pornography.

Jackson’s camp tried to distance the singer from Schaffel, and the various corporations that were attached to it (McDonalds, Sony) claimed they had minimal involvement if any with the song. Sony and Jackson began a press war in the summer of 2002, starting with Jackson’s claims that the label asked for 200 million dollars to pay them back for marketing costs. Although they had spent 55 million on his disappointing comeback, Sony released a statement saying that no such request had ever been made.

Jackson stewed for a few weeks before launching a press attack on Sony Music chairman Tommy Mottola, calling him “devilish” and making claims that he used racist language and held down black artists. Many Sony artists, including Mariah Carey and Ricky Martin, defended Mottola, but Jackson and his family maintained that racism ended their professional relationship.
