Rihanna Releases Her Official Video for ‘You Da One’!…

Rihanna finally unveils her sassy new video for her latest single ‘You Da One’, taken from her ‘Talk That Talk’ album. This is definitely Da One I’ve been waiting for as I am craaaazy about this traaack! She has hardly switched things up much in comparison to her previous videos  – apart from the blonde transformation of course – but what more did we really expect??

 I am probably bias seeing as I am completely in love with the quirky number, but I do appreciate the execution of the video, the artistic lyrical graphics and effects, the whole creative aspect of the visual – it’s powerful in that it clearly presents the song’s message in the simplest way, and it enriches the track and sits perfectly with the nature of the song.

Check out the new vid from Da One and only Rihanna

Chris Brown Heats Up this Wintery Season With His Official Video for ‘Strip’…

Well Chris Brown seems to have dropped his wintery-themed official video for his latest single ‘Strip’ (ft. Kevin McCall) at the perfect time this ‘breezy’ season. Only CB could consider stripping down in midwinter! But let’s face it – this chilled yet frisky visual certainly helps to heat up the chilly days and our frosty bones.

The ‘She Ain’t You’ singer proves to be having a whole lotta harmless fun, acting his cheeky breezy self, along with lavish ladies he and rapper McCall would surely love to reflect the track’s title. Taken from his upcoming fifth album ‘Fortune’, ‘Strip’ is not necessarily an original number, or visual, but it’s an addictive one all the same!

Get all warmed up below…


[Video] X Factor Final Press Conference and Duets Revealed!…

The X Factor final Press Conference which took place yesterday, revealed all the exciting plans for this weekend’s X Factor final at Wembley Arena!

The one aspect of the final I tend to look forward to the most each year is the duets – but this year it is set to be an all new format. Instead of the finalists performing a duet with various artists, this time they will be performing with their own mentors! So no pressure Gary, Kelly and Tulisa! Ironically I think it’s the judges that are going to be judged – a taste of their own damn medicine – and it would surely be shameful if they get upstaged by the amateurs! (hehehe)

So which songs will the duets be performing…

Well Gary has confirmed that he and Marcus will be singing Billy Joel’sAlways A Woman’ which is said to be dedicated to the finalist’s mum. (They’re gonna shut it DOWN!)

Tulisa and her “little muffins” will be performing a mash-up of Alicia Key’sEmpire State Of Mind’ and ‘If I Ain’t Got You’. (Yep they’re sure to bring the house DOWN with that one).

And finally, Amelia Lily and Kelly Rowland will be performing Ike and Tina Turner’s classic ‘River Deep, Mountain High’ – and in the words of Kelly Rowland, they’re gonna “put it DOWN!”.

So can comeback kid Amelia Lily take the winner’s crown? Can cutie Marcus steal even more of the viewers’ hearts and become the X Factor champion? Can Little Mix win the competition and make X Factor history!?

And to top off the weekend’s events, Coldplay, Michael Buble, Leona Lewis, One Direction and JLS will be gracing the stages on Sunday night! I for one cannot WAIT for the phenomenon that is the X Factor final to commence!


Lady Gaga MARRYS THE NIGHT In Her Longest Music Video Ever Made…

Now the thing is…I really do like Lady Gaga. She has a brilliant voice, huge talent and a wonderful personality, but this music video for her latest single ‘Marry The Night‘ has left my heart disputing with my head; my heart believes that she’s totally awesome……but my head believes that she is officially deranged.

When I noticed that I was about to watch a 14 minute-long video, I was optimistically intrigued, but that was honestly precisely 13:51mins of complete nonsense!!! I guess I could never deny the fact that she is totally living up to her stage name!

I understand that the visual is representative of her past, but it was just uninteresting to view, it had no life, a bore to watch, and I have no words to offer on the final scene…

We all know that the unique superstar is outrageous/wacky/eccentric/plus any other nutty-related terms, but this was on a whole new Gaga level. The only part that just about sparked my interest was the dance routine – but overall, to put it plainly…I just didn’t like it.
