Bey sends a glowing recommendation to First Lady Michelle Obama. Lucky for Barack, that’s his wife, no? LOL
This web series kills me. It’s sad that misunderstandings and disrespect this ridiculous are still common, but this truthful portrayal is frickin’ hilarious. Creator Kim Williams is seriously talented. Complicated and talented.
This video is shaky, but just close your eyes and listen. Gaga’s voice is amazing. This songwriting reminds me of the FAME album. Sadly some silly young person will probably use this song’s subject matter as an excuse to do something unfortunate. But knowing Gaga she’s not the least interested in suicide, she’ll be making some commentary on fame, being a celebrity and the death of art in the 21st century. LOL
I saw a WSJ interview where the interviewer commented that Usher’s voice seemed to have gotten bigger on his new album Looking for Myself. I finally listened to the whole thing, and I have to agree. E’rybody knows I love me some Usher. Not for the looks – though I admit it doesn’t hurt that my man … Continue reading Lord, the Vibrato!

Not to say I didn’t watch. I did. Scream was like an ode to Michael Jackson, Billie Jean, Thriller, Leave Me Alone if I’m not mistaken. but not enough Ursh. One can take the mystery thing too far I think.
There is a reason that sarcasm will never, in my opinion, go out of style. That reason is, other people’s obliviousness. Whether it’s rooted in selfishness, unawareness, idiocy or sheer bloody mindedness, sarcasm is really the only logical response to certain situations. For instance, I am an editor, a journalist. I have been my entire … Continue reading I’m Too Old to Work For Free
