"Happy" is the musical equivalent of putting whipped cream on your already syrupy pancakes -- only some people can go all in on that level of sweetness. Or so I thought, until I heard Janelle Kroll cover it in a way that has me genuinely...wait for it...happy.
Snuggle all day and listen to music! Yes!
Every now and again a young woman tries desperately hard to look sexy by simulating what she saw on TV and looks like a total tool
We took some of the top nominations this year and decided to pick what we thought would be the winners!
"With my gift, I can pretty much write a song out of anything,” he says. It really is a gift.
Honestly, the video doesn't look that much different than Shakira's hit music video, "Whenever, Wherever," except that was released in 2001.
From the door to the wall /Coffee table girl get ready/I'mma put you down." Justin Bieber is preparing us for intercourse.
I know I'll get hate for saying this, but One Direction were really not that big of a deal in England, then they just came over to America and suddenly everyone was obsessed. We've got much better musicians that have been trying to make it big for years.
What you'll notice most is that she can actually sing.
The video for "Ingenue" features Thom Yorke and a woman dancing and sporting matching outfits. Thom Yorke is majestic but this lady is KILLING IT with the movements.
The three make for a flawless combination of sleek weaves, daisy dukes and woodland chic in their new video for "Falling."
Taylor leaves clues in her CD's liner notes to who the song is about. If you're like me and had no idea she did this or too lazy to figure it out yourself, you can find out right here who each tune is aimed at!
Liking her won't earn you any hipster street cred. But, gosh, sometimes it's fun to just geek out and sing into your hairbrush.
You can only imagine how excited I was to see a headline this morning claiming that Justin's in the studio working overtime to bring us what we've all been yearning for: a new set of classic pop songs to belt out at the bar.
Finding new music and artists is when of my favorite things. It's always such a cool feeling when you find music and artists that you can really connect with. I came across some of these artists on the rise through various websites, stumbling upons, and friend's suggestions.
She still rocks tank tops, skinny jeans, and boho chic accessories, she has also embraced sleek silhouettes and generally more sophisticated pieces. Regardless, she has not lost her sass and her spark, and her fashion definitely reflects that.
There are so many artists dropping new albums this month, that I thought I'd share some of the albums I'm most excited about. Which albums will you purchase?
The video features Taylor's usual guy-bashing, fighting, and some new furry friends. What does it mean? Who is the song about?
Sure, I get the point of the video: Rihanna is saying "where have you been?" to a perfect guy because she has literally searched everywhere, as evidenced by this video in which she is literally looking everywhere. And yet, if you turn the sound off, the point of the video is completely lost. Here are a couple things Rihanna could be doing in this video...
Austin Brown--this kid's got it. I couldn't have been happier to catch Austin's show at SXSW, and would be a much cooler individual if I could learn his dance moves. The influence of uncle, Michael Jackson, is immediately obvious in Austin's stage presence. Brown is definitely going places.
Morning Parade invaded SXSW with their indie rock/alternative sound and definitely left a mark on Austin. Hailing from Harlow, England, Morning Parade brings a different vibe to the music scene at SXSW.
Coming to SXSW all the way from London, England, Graffiti6 blew everyone in Austin away. Graffiti6, made up of pop/rock duo Jamie Scott (vocals) and Tommy "D" Danvers (producer and songwriter), bring a whole new kind of sound to the SXSW music scene.
Finding new artists is the greatest part of the SXSW Music Festival, but I never would of guessed I'd find an incredible rapper from Tulsa, Oklahoma! When I first arrived at P.D.A.'s show, I was a bit suspicious. The venue was pretty empty, and the few patrons that were there were caught up in idle chatter. As soon as he started the first song, I was immediately relieved.
Coming to SXSW from Santa Barbara, these boys brought California sunshine into the bar. After quickly packing the house, people congregated by the window out on the street just to soak up some of their sound. Tommy's voice is smooth like whiskey; warms you up and gives you chills all at the same time. He winked at me at the beginning of their set, and I nearly fainted.
If someone asked me what my favorite part of SXSW was, I would say Black Taxi. Sure, I saw Jay-Z. Yeah, I checked out Miike Snow, and I was mildly impressed with The Temper Trap. But no one turned me on like Black Taxi. Maybe it's the way the music makes me move, maybe it's the seductive nature of Bill's voice, maybe it's that Ezra pulls on a crowd like a marionette, and he didn't care at all when I stole his maraca in a fit of dancing.
