Daniel Bedingfield has become quite the provocateur. His latest video, “Secret Fear,” finds the British singer/songwriter cavorting with a comely woman in…a martini glass? A washing machine? Something like that. There’s also blood. And fire. I can’t say I understand all of the symbolism, but the song is pretty kicking. I didn’t realize Danny Boy had this much vocal range. The clip is also pretty artfully and tastefully done. Which is cool, because both principals are stark booty butt nekkid [...]
Soul songstress Marsha Ambrosius unleashes a provocative new video for her song “Fuck N Get It Over With.” Sexy and sultry!!
Frank Ocean’s recent reveal has had a strong, and important impact. Here’s why it matters.
Robin Thicke gets sexy (again…) in his new video. Check out the latest from the “Duets” star!
In the time it’s taken you to read this, Rihanna’s gotten another tattoo and changed her hair color twice. Check out her new video for “Where Have You Been?”
It’s been damn near a decade since we Americans last heard from Daniel Bedingfield. The young British singer/songwriter scored hits out the box with “Gotta Get Thru This” and the pretty ballad “If I’m Not The One.” Both songs worked that retro-MJ thing before Justin Timberlake, Chris Brown and Ne-Yo took over that particular lane, and Daniel even had a foot in that two-step thing that was popular in the U.S. for about five minutes (hello, Craig David!!) So, where [...]
Community is coming back from its mid-season hiatus, but what about that porn parody that was announced last year? This article explores what a successful Community porn parody might look like.
One of the better moments during Sunday’s American Music Awards was watching Robin Thicke (who is definitely his father’s son) goof his way through the proper pronunciation of Ellie Goulding’s name while presenting an award. Not sure if the brief appearance on the award show will do anything to promote sales of his upcoming fifth album Love After War, but hell…he doesn’t have to do anything to convert me anyway. The video for the album’s first single and title track [...]
Maroon 5 make me wanna dance! I’m a casual fan of Adam Levine and company. I think I own one album by them? I watch The Voice. He’s my favorite judge. But again, I’m a casual fan. “Moves Like Jagger” is the kind of song that would prompt me to become something more than a casual fan, though. Did I mention that fellow The Voice judge Christina Aguilera lends her spectacular pipes to the bridge? The song takes the best [...]
One 2011 release that snuck up on me out of nowhere is the latest from She Wants Revenge , tentatively due at the end of May. Besides all the industrial metal albums coming out this spring, Valley Heart is probably my most anticipated release this year. A co-worker of mine suggested them to me right before their first EP came out in late 2005 and I’ve been in love with them ever since. Dark, disturbing yet still sensual and seductive with lyrical content to match, [...]
The music-writing bug hit me pretty early in life, but it didn’t strike me as a viable option (for various reasons) until I was in my mid-teens. Starting with the creation of The Source, young urban culture finally got a voice in the print media mainstream, It was closely followed by Quincy Jones’ magazine venture, Vibe. From the first issue of the magazine I saw (with a striking photo of Treach from Naughty by Nature on the cover), I was [...]
