And then there’s teen (or pre-teen) sensation Justin Bieber.
C’mon! There really is nothing to discuss, is there? Read the rest of this entry »
It’s been a while since I’ve actually found an artist in this genre whose music I’ve actually wanted to download onto my playlist. Most of the songs I have on rotation are a hodge podge collection of old school artists that I never grow tired of. However, it was just begging for something fresh!
I was at a friend’s flat when I heard her first streaming through my buddy’s iTunes and I was instantly hooked. Earning two Grammy awards in 2009 for Best New Artist of the Year and Best Female Vocal Performance, 23 year old British singer Adele made my jaw drop with those set of pipes that just rocks your core and moves the earth! That girl has her soul in her music and it reaches out to you. True to this, Beyonce complimented the young artist saying that listening to her feels like listening to God!
Hearing that from the ravishing pop diva herself can make a successful budding artist end up with creating their own alter ego! And from that day, Sasha Carter became Adele Laurie Blue Adkins’ alter ego who may just as well be a bootylicious half Black and half Caucasian woman who sings dark bluesy music in a British accent.
But who needs an alter ego when you’ve got such an amazing talent? Apparently, the refreshing luscious singer has stage performance anxiety. She confesses her dislike for tours as this has her hiding away and running out through fire exits in a vomit fit and even hurling projectile puke on someone.
At least that’s not due to an eating disorder as she admits her disdain for working out. The rather curvy singer, who is currently on the cover of Rolling Stone Magazine, oozes with a rather subtle sensuality to her classic beauty. Adele believes in enjoying good food and wine and not go ape on cutting calories just to be able to show some skin like most young pop stars these days. Although she admires Katy Perry’s décolletage and her derriere, Adele says that she makes music to be appreciated with one’s ears …and not with one’s eyes.

In his MySpace blog, the former Idol writes that “We pride ourselves on being accessible to you as fans, but in contrast, we do enjoy what little privacy we can muster. To that end, the efforts by some fans to find our hotel rooms, call our hotel rooms, attach things to our bus, etc., is something I have to condemn.”
In short, fans should give a little bit of space. I think it’s reasonable. Then again, I am not a fan. Whatcha think?
Ever since the news broke out that Rihanna was beat up by boyfriend Chris Brown, people have been hungry for updates. Here’s one from Clara Brathwaite, Rihanna’s grandma. She says that her granddaughter is fine and does NOT have a broken nose. Thank God for sparing her pretty face that!
Jessica Simpson recently performed at Sunday’s Kiss Country Chili Cookout in Pembroke Pines, showing off a much fuller figure than what we were used to. In true Hollywood fashion, bloggers, writers, and reporters couldn’t wait to jump on her case. And sister Ashlee’s reaction? Fuming mad. I totally understand why.
“A lot of people have told me about the surgery and they say the hardest part is just being quiet”
Rachael Ray, the queen of cooking talk show television told the crowd during a charity event hosted by Rosie O’Donnell. Despite the grim news, Rachael characteristically stayed upbeat as she candidly spoke about her upcoming throat surgery.
“I’m having voice surgery on Dec. 16, so we’re going to celebrate very quietly……It’s fine, it’s just a little bump, I need to get rid of it though.”
Ray explained, continuing to joke on how she planned to write on a pad of paper to communicate, saying that she was going to “grow back the callous” that she had in grade school.
In October, Rachael’s reps told the press that the cooking star had found a small lump in her throat and had to have it removed. They said it WASN”T throat cancer. Phew.
In a recent interview in the British media, Gwyneth denied allegations that her marriage with Coldplay rocker, Chris Martin was in trouble. Rumors of separation were “ridiculous” the Gwyneth insisted, she went on gushing that being a wife and Mother is her greatest joy, has made her stop searching, ended her loneliness and made her whole. Awww.
So why couldn’t she reveal the wherabouts of her husband (the reason why those rumors erupted)? “We just don’t want to be one of those couples…..It evolved that way” Yeah. whatever.
On a better note, Gwyneth was last seen in New York, attending to the Mexican birthday bash of 2-year-old Moses. And where was Dad? London of course….
