Music Monday's: Simone Battle- "He Likes Boys"

Simone Battle is a recent "X Factor" castaway.
Apparently, Simone was NOT a favorite of the judges on the show but she vowed to make it anyhow (don't they all?).
She seems to be taking active steps toward making good on that promise with her recent release of "He Likes Boys". I saw this video a few days ago and the title alone made me curious.
I wondered, "Is that a typo?"
"Did she mean "She" likes boys?"
Then I pressed play and was pleasantly surprised!
The video/song is about a gorgeous young girl who just can't seem to pick the boys right. Each guy she falls for always seems to like boys. Hey, I'd dance to it at a party.

Simone describes herself as "If a Cheerleader, a Hipster, and a Drag Queen had a Threesome, I would be their love child"... Sounds like my kinda girl!

WTF Wednesday: Mom Tries To Sell Daughter's Virginity?

Well, what do we have here?
A mother in Utah plead guilty to the charge of trying to sell her 13-year-old daughters virginity.

Really?

Okay...

 The "mother" (if we can call her that) is charged with sending sexually explicit messages about her daughter to a man she hoped would pay $10,000 for sex with the virgin teen.

New Video: Rihanna "We Found Love"

Pop superstar Rihanna filmed the video for upcoming single “We Found Love" in Belfast, Ireland.
The single is the 1st off her upcoming album Talk That Talk.
The video was directed by Melina, one of her favorite directors, and Tanisha Scott handled the choreography.

The video is pretty intense. There's a great storyline of 2 lovers, addicted to one another, and learning that that dependency is not always healthy in a relationship.
I actually REALLY liked it. I could have done without the flashes of drug paraphernalia but other than that, GOOD JOB Ri!

I know she's about to get a whole lot of flack for this in 5, 4, 3...

What I Want: Biker Boots!

I've been dying for a pair of really GOOD biker or riding boots... and I've YET to find one :-(

So far, these three are the closest to being what I want but I would have to see them in person to decide.
I'm really funny about how the leather looks, how it will age, etc.

My other problem shopping for boots is the prices! Oh my... Most of these boots are no less than $100... but according to my friend Danielle "I am just NOT willing to spend that much money on a combat boot." At this point though, it doesn't look like I have a choice :-(
Do you guys have any suggestions on possible boots I may like?
What are you pining over right now?

Yesterday, on Monday October 17, 2011, Singersroom.com held an intimate Meet & Greet with R&B singer Lloyd at the Rocawear office in New York City.

I've always been a fan of Lloyd's music.
His voice and style is unique among the pleathora of pop and techno sounds that are dominating the airwaves.
Lloyd disscused how he feels about being a top artist under 30 years old, what his fears are, and shared personal and professional stories.

Music Monday: Emeli Sande

I'm absolutely in love with Emeli Sande!
I had never heard of her until I went to London. The whole time I was there, I kept asking who she was. For me, she's a breath of fresh air.
The Scotland born singer signed to Virgin Records in 2010 and released her first single "Heaven" in 2011. She has written for a few of the UK's current top acts like Tinie Tempah, Cher Lloyd and Leona Lewis.
While she originally went by her first name, Adele, she later changed it to Emeli (for obvious reasons). Not only is she talented, she's smart too! She graduated from the University of Glasgow with a degree in neurology.
Go ahead girl, beauty and brains!

Emeli's debut album "Our Version Of Events" is set to be released in January of 2012. I look forward to it.

New Video: Beyonce- "Love On Top"

The darling Queen Bey released the official video for her single "Love On Top" off her "4" album.
Last week, Beyonce teased her fans with a "sneak peek" but in all honesty she could have released the whole thing.
I am more of a theatrical girl so i like to see plots in a video. You know, beginning, middle, and end... It was the same thing over and over in different outfits.
-___- Bey, you ain't fooling nobody.

She looked gorgeous though! She always glows.

Anywho, Click "READ MORE" for some of the cyphers. I thought they were actually really good!
Maybe hip hop does have a chance after all.

WTF Wednesday: Vybz Kartel To Launch... A Line Of Bleaching Cream?

Before and after of Vybz Kartel

I just can't. Not today, not ever.

So apparently Jamaican artist Vybz Kartel, who was recently indicted on murder charges, is launching is own line of skin bleaching cream for the young men of Jamaica.

Why? I don't know.

Kartel, who likens his skin bleaching to Caucasian people tanning, will release his creams under the name of "Vybz".

Somebody call the FDA, the CDC, somebody... ANYBODY. I know this can't be legal.

People are calling bleaching a "growing" problem in Jamaica but that is untrue. It is just a problem that is NOW receiving attention. In Jamaica and many other Afro-Caribbean islands, bleaching has been a long standing practice. I have family members that bleach their skin. There is so much underlying self hate among people of color it's disgusting.

Now, with all that said, let me go some blast Kartel :-)
I still love his music *GIGGLE*

New Video: "Lay It On Me"- Kelly Rowland

YES! Kelly Rowland looks STUNNING in her new video "Lay It On Me" ft. Big Sean.
Kelly prances around and fondles her half naked male dancers, plays with an elephant, and just enjoys being sexy in this video... Gosh I want her job!
While I can do without her choice of wigs, all in all, great video.
This is the 2nd single off Kelly's album "Here I Am", a title very appropriate for the new and improved Kelly.
It's time for her to take her place on the charts, she definitely deserves it.

Up In London

I spent the last 2 weeks and 3 days of my summer in the UK!
I'd ALWAYS wanted to go there, (I'd been working on my accent since I was about 5) so when i got my ticket as a graduation gift, I was beyond excited!

I stayed with family and got to go all over London. North, South, East, West, you name it, I went.
I did all the tourist bits, like museums, tours, shopping etc., but the time I enjoyed the most was just driving around the city.
I really admire their attempt at preserving all their historical sites and buildings.

Esquire Magazine Crowns Rihanna As "Sexiest Woman Alive"

Rihanna covers this month's Esquire magazine naked... not that that's surprising.

The Bajan superstar was crowned the sexiest woman alive by the magazine and discusses the issue of being a role model, her sex appeal, and more.

Riri is undoubtedly sexy, sexiest woman alive though? Do you agree?
