chromeo: don’t turn the lights on!

August 12, 2010

I really like Chromeo‘s music. It’s always very upbeat, 80s inspired electrofunk. Their new single Don’t Turn The Lights On is no exception. I love it, and the video, as you can see, is different. Very silly, with a lot of eyeballs. I’m excited for their album Business Casual to drop in September. Check them out!

kanye west: power!

August 8, 2010

Kanye West is and will probably remain my favorite rapper. You may question his antics or disapprove of his attitude, but that’s not any of my business. I am always too impressed by his artistic genius to care about his outbursts (besides, BeyoncĂ© did make one of the best videos of all time). From his music to his style, he is just the ultimate artist to me. This post, though, is about his videos! More specifically, his provocative video for his new single Power!

Watching this innovative music video is basically why I love him. I get into anyone who isn’t scared to reinvent themselves and their craft. This video is fresh in concept and very inspiring to an artist like myself. Instead of the typical music video, Power is a beautiful portrait – literally. It’s a painting that slowly zooms in all of the different subjects (Kanye included) to tell an abstract story. I don’t know if this concept has been done before, but Kanye definitely innovated and refreshed a genre that some say is dying. Kanye West is a trailblazer and he is here to stay, people. Stay mad.

get ready for: lady guyga!

June 29, 2010

The infamous Lady Gaga has got the girls talking again. This time as Jo Calderone, an alter-ego of sorts. She recently did a photoshoot for Vogue Hommes Japan dressed as a man. Not surprisingly, she pulls off being a man really well. I didn’t know it was her until I read about it. Not sure if this will be any indication of the *imagery* or *theme* from her upcoming album, or if she just felt a little cocky that day.

What do you think? I kind of love it.

kelis: 4th of july (fireworks)!

June 17, 2010

I love Kelis! Like I said before, she’s ALWAYS so 3008. Lightyears ahead these other girls. Even if her music isn’t always particularly groundbreaking it’s still good and she always put her stamp on it in one way or another. Plus you know her imagery and/or fashion is always going to be on some other world nonsense. Nonsense meaning fierceness. Whether she’s dressed like a wolf who ate an Avatar or like a peacock disguised as a Native American chief, she’s committed and I love it. This video for her song 4th of July (Fireworks) isn’t spectacular, but it’s cool and summery. Nice close-ups and colors, and of course fireworks at the end. She looks great in the couture gowns! Love the song, too. It’s fun! It’s definitely going on my July playlist (get it?).

rihanna: rockstar 101!

May 25, 2010

I love Rihanna‘s music. I love Rihanna’s videos. I love Rihanna’s style. However, I’m over her interpretation of being “dark” and “edgy”. If she can’t get more creative than striking strange poses while wearing couture outfits, then I’m over her. She’s done it so many times already that I don’t care. Dance, come up with a storyline, do something different! And don’t even get me started on the abundant illuminati/freemason references she is once again promoting. This video did nothing for me. Hopefully Te Amo will be more refreshing.

christina aguilera: not myself tonight!

April 29, 2010

Woah!

I don’t know what to say. Christina Aguilera is definitely not herself tonight. I think she definitely took that song title to heart, and took full advantage of being able to go crazy in this video! It’s the Dirrty Xtina we all love paying homage to Madonna’s Human Nature and Express Yourself. I love the S&M theme. She was giving me life in the catsuit, licking the milk from the bowl. I also loved the scene with her setting her old wardrobe on fire like a boss. The product placement, with the phone and her perfumes was a little tacky to me, though.

Besides being sexual in a not-so-subtle way, she is doing it in a church (remeniscent of another Madonna video). Between that, and the inevitable (and retarded) Gaga comparisons, this is sure to cause controversy. But, there’s one thing Christina is no stranger to and that is controversy. Love it or hate it, she does what she wants, and if you don’t like it…

theophilus london: accept the new!

April 15, 2010

I just found this video. I didn’t know Theophilus London had a new mixtape coming out! Apparently it’s called I Want You and it’s being released on April 28th (which as an anniversary for something I’m sure). I’m really feeling this song. It has a 80s vibe without being a typical 80s inspired track. The video’s kinda cool. It starts out with him riding a very brightly lit bike, then turns into a deep sea PBS special at the end. A little trippy, very simple, and pretty cool.

Also, check out his cover of Tweet’s song Oops! Great, looking forward to his new mixtape.

kelis: acapella!

March 29, 2010

Kelis, as always, is twenty-seven steps ahead of the game. Whether that’s a good or bad thing is irrelevant. I’m sure we’ll be seeing Rihanna with the same hairstyle in a few weeks. Check out her video for her new single Acapella, in which she’s giving me Avatar, Brazilian Carnaval, and Dances with Wolves all in one. Her new album Flesh Tone will be out in the summer!

So excited for Bionic! A preview of Not Myself Tonight will be up tomorrow on her website. This will be a good Spring Break for me.

xtina is: not herself tonight!

March 23, 2010

Yes yes, y’all, the “big news” has been revealed! It is the title of Christina Aguilera‘s single and the cover artwork. It is not Glam or Bionic as the first single like we speculated. The single is called Not Myself Tonight. The single is not available to listen to yet, but there’s MORE “big news” coming tomorrow! I wanted bigger news, but I’m excited regardless for the return of my fave. I’m anxious to see what the big news will be tomorrow.

I am however wondering why I’m getting an illuminatina vibe from the cover art…
