Forget Alejandro or Te Amo, this summer’s hottest latin-inspired pop video belongs to Belinda, Mexico’s answer to Hannah Montana.
The 20 year old pop singer and telenovela queen vamps it up with rapper Pitbull for Egoista, the first official single from her new album Carpe Diem.
Egoista is a marked departure from her previous pop/rock sound. Egoista (or “Selfish”) is instead autotune-heavy, Poker Face-inspired electropop.
Vanessa Carlton publicly acknowledged that she is a “proud bisexual woman” at Nashville Pride (see video):
Before you ask, she’s a singer who had those pop/rock hits in the early 2000′s. Not Michelle Branch, but the other one who sang the song, A Thousand Miles on her moving piano. I always wondered how they made that video. Did they just stuff her on the back of a truck and hope she wouldn’t fall off?
You know what? The song is eight years old, but its aged really well! I don’t care, I reckon it’s a classic of that decade.
Charice continues her worldwide campaign and Australia is next!
Unfortunately though, the song has been stalling on Australia’s iTunes for the past week, languishing in the top 120′s. At the moment she’s no. 126, after Survivor‘s Eye of the Tiger. I mean, as classic as that song is, come on!
It’s time to request her on Aussie radio (she’s been playlisted on Austereo‘s Hot30 Countdown among others), buy her single and drive her up the charts.
Kelly Rowland‘s long-awaited video for Commander has been released in HQ! It features cameos from Rico Love and David Guetta, who morphs into a turntable at one point.
The video was supposedly more polished than the low-quality version that leaked a few weeks ago.
So is it any different?
Kelly Rowland is cool if you keep bringing up gossip about her and Beyoncé not getting along, as long as you don’t forget mentioning Michelle Williams!
In an interview with Oprah’s Gayle King, Kelly kept bringing up the fact that most people ignore Michelle in interviews about Destiny’s Child.
Lady GaGa has finally unveiled her brand new, Steven Klein-directed video – Alejandro!
So was the 8 minute plus-long clip for her favorite song off The Fame Monster worth the wait?
Sure was!!! Militaristic choreography, lots of gay innuendo, a bizarre Tsarina-like character complete with a smoking pipe and even religious imagery…it’s a cracker of a video. I mean, she dresses as a nun and swallows rosary beads!
The Rolling Stone has posted a brief article breaking down the video with its director.
A mixtape featuring songs from Kylie‘s upcoming album, Aphrodite, has made its way onto YouTube. Holy shit the album sounds AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!
The Stuart Price-produced album is classic Kylie. Meaning an album full of dance pop anthems that will explode in any gay club. I already love the sound of Get Outta My Way and Aphrodite.
The album is released in July.
All my regular readers (all two and a half of you) have been demanding that I hurry up and choose this month’s regular.
Well far out, I’m sorry! I’ve been going through a personal crisis these past few days. I’m this close to getting kicked out of clown college.
Anyway this month I’ve decided to go with Taylor Lautner, best known for Twilight, New Moon and the craptacular Valentine’s Day opposite his supposed ex-girlfriend, Squinty McSquints.
Beefcake just left Australia today with Kristen Stewart, who seems to have spent the entire promo trip being the awkward, sourpuss little bitch we’ve all grown to…get to know.
