Thoughts on Amy Winehouse’s ‘Hidden Treasures’

Amy Winehouse

The other night on Twitter I tweeted about not being impressed with Amy Winehouse's new posthumous album, Lioness: Hidden Treasures, but of course being a huge fan of Amy's, it's great to hear previously unreleased material even if it isn't quite up to snuff. I have mixed feelings on the release, on one hand some proceeds are benefiting her foundation yet if Amy was alive today, would she have put this out? Probably not. It's still really hard MORE

Lady Gaga’s ‘Marry The Night’ music video!

Lady Gaga - Marry The Night

Here's the highly-anticipated new music video for Lady Gaga's latest single Marry The Night. As much as I adore Gaga, I think the video (which she directed) drags a bit clocking in around 14 minutes, I just wanted her to get to the song already which happens to be one of my favorite tracks off Born This Way. If you want to skip all the 'art' (which almost put me to sleep) skip to around 8:30 when the song actually starts! MORE

Mariah / Bieber: All I Want For Xmas Is You

Mariah Carey and Justin Bieber

I do love Mariah Carey's 1994 holiday hit (almost a classic!) All I Want For Christmas Is You, but there was simply no need to release an updated (SuperFestive?) version. Especially with Justin Bieber who adds nothing fresh or particularly exciting to the song. Below is the new music video (it could easily double as a commercial for Macy's), Mariah looks fabulous and Justin is kind of cute, I guess, ugh. MORE

Watch: Trina’s ‘Long Heels Red Bottoms’

Trina - Long Heels Red Bottoms

Here's the latest music video from Miami's own 'Diamond Princess' Trina aka 'Da Baddest Bitch,' a tribute to infamous shoemaker Christian Louboutin called Long Heels Red Bottoms! She's already released five studio albums and is currently working on her sixth, she's definitely one of my favorite female rappers, kudos to Trina for staying in the game for so long! Now if only Lil' Kim could get her shit together ... Katrina "Trina" Taylor, MORE

Our Day Will Come: Amy Winehouse Tribute

Amy Winehouse

I still miss Amy Winehouse, I am still so upset about her untimely death at age 27 this past summer. Her first posthumous compilation album called Lioness: Hidden Treasures is about to hit stores next month (12/2), here's the first track, Our Day Will Come, watch the touching tribute music video below. MORE

Feist: How Come You Never Go There

Feist - How Come You Never Go There

After a day of Demi Moore finally getting a divorce, kitty litter facials, white trash baby daddy long-cons, and famewhores trying to drive a man to suicide all because he called her a famewhore, let's end the day out right: with the brand new music video for Feist's track How Come You Never Go There (off Metals), which features Feist in a floor-length black wig, being all super-artsy-fairy-creature in the woods. It's a great song and a great MORE

Beyoncé’s ‘I Was Here’ – Live at Roseland

Beyoncé - I Was Here (Live at Roseland)

Remember a few months ago when Beyoncé did four shows at NYC's Roseland? Well there's a DVD being released (11/29) of the show (thank heavens, since I wasn't able to make it to the Big Apple) and here's a video of her performing I Was Here, one of my favorite tracks off her most recent album 4. BONUS: Beyoncé’s video for End of Time (Live at Roseland) MORE

Rebecca Black’s new music video!

Rebecca Black

I honestly can't make fun of Rebecca Black. For starters, she's not a bad person, so much as she's just a kid who found her way into one of the campiest music videos in the world. Although if you need to hate SOMEONE in that video, feel free to direct some of that anger towards Fat Usher (I don't know his name, so let's just assume that's it). Anyway, Rebecca has a new song out called Person of Interest, and you know what? It's not bad. The song MORE

Katy Perry’s ‘The One That Got Away’ video!

Katy Perry - The One That Got Away

So as most of you know, Katy Perry is just one more #1 single from Teenage Dream away from beating Michael Jackson's record of most #1 singles from an album (which he did with his 1987 album Bad, just take a minute to reflect on that). So she decided she's going to win the record the only way she knows how: boobs dressing up as an old lady! Wait, what? Yeah, that one caught me off guard too! Anyway, it's a nice song and the video is all about how MORE

Presented without comment: Glee’s Rumour Has It / Someone Like You!

Glee

Watch: Duran Duran’s ‘Girl Panic!’

Duran Duran - Girl Panic!

OMG! The brand new music video from Duran Duran for their single Girl Panic! (off their latest release All You Need Is Now, produced by cutie Mark Ronson) is hands down one of the most ambitious and creative videos of the year, it's totally epic! The video was shot (by director Jonas Åkerlund) this past June in London's Savoy hotel, and the band members are all played by legendary supermodels including Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, Eva MORE

Dear Justin Bieber: WHAT HAVE YOU WROUGHT?

Justin Bieber

Okay, so I went easy on the last Justin Bieber Christmas song / video, because I like to keep an open mind about these things no matter how many death threats Beliebers send me, so I'm going to try and stay positive for his new video, a clay-mated take on Santa Claus Is Coming To Town. And I mean, it's pretty - Oh. Oh God. What is happenin- THE MAW HAS OPENED. RUN ALL YOU WANT, THE SOUND OF HIS STEPS DRAWS CLOSER. PRAISE THE MAPLE BEAST. NO MORE

Watch: V V Brown’s ‘Children’ music video

V V Brown - Children

OMG! This is totally a shining example of when a video helps to make a song more likeable! I love V V Brown but to be completely honest I wasn't overly crazy about her new single Children (featuring Chiddy of Chiddy Bang) but for some reason once I saw the just released music video I fell head over heels for the track, I cannot stop playing it! Ms. Brown will very soon be making her way to Los Angeles, I'll be catching her show at The Hotel Cafe MORE

Watch: Beyoncé’s ‘Party’ (featuring J. Cole)

Beyoncé - 'Party' (featuring J. Cole)

Oh my word, Beyoncé must have went crazy shooting music videos before her baby bump (it sounds like she's having a little girl) appeared! Here's yet another new one (doesn't she look absolutely gorgeous?) for Party (featuring J. Cole) which is off her totally stellar album 4. Hopefully there's more to come, I really need her to make one for I Was Here which is probably my favorite track off her latest release! MORE
