The best way to spread commencement cheer is singing loud for all to hear.
FAB, get out.
"Turn this shiz up!!!! LIKE I WOULD," he tweeted. What a jokester.
I've never been a Bieber fan (cue the angry comments), but I think he's reached a new level of awful with this song. In the intro, he makes sort of an attempt at rapping, but it's more like a male version of the Ke$ha sing-talk. And then he starts singing, and from there the song pretty much turns into a Jesse McCartney ripoff.
Part of me just wants to sing to the lyrics right now but I will refrain. Partly because I'm not sure I would sound as good on paper, partly because you might hate me by the time I've finished. But what better way to spread Christmas cheer than by singing loudly for all to hear?
Finally. The moment we've all been waiting for has arrived. No, not the Peeta-Katniss-Gale sex tape. Something even better! Taylor Swift's song for Hunger Games is finally here and it's....it's Taylor Swift singing.
I often ignore live and "best of" albums. Even from artists I love. What's the point, right? I have all their music already - how many different versions do I need? But this week I decided to live on the edge a little bit and listened to both a live album and a "best of" album. And ZOMG, I'm so happy I did!
Do you ever listen to music that's completely ridiculous? (Editor's Note: Does Miley count?) To the point that you start feeling ridiculous and maybe even hide the fact that you listen to other people? (Editor's Note: Miley definitely counts.) Or just sorta wonder what's going on in the artist's head?
The great thing about new music is that you never really know what you're gonna get. Sorta like life. And a box of chocolates (thanks, Forrest!). Sometimes albums totally and completely surprise you. And sometimes they don't at all. Sometimes surprises are good, and sometimes they're a huge letdown. Sometimes all you want is your favorite band just the same as always, and sometimes a little change makes them all the better.
All the artists this week make me happy. Even when the songs are sad, I'm happy. And I think that's a sign of a truly great artist; they can sing about the saddest things in love and still put a smile on my face. And sometimes you just need music to comfort you and make you feel good. Like during midterms after spending 6 straight hours at the library and you're only a third of the way through your reading.
Wow, this week was a bit of a bummer. So much anticipation and a whole lot of disappointment. You're probably thinking I deserve it. After all, I got my hopes all up about Mariah Carey and Selena Gomez, so what did I really deserve, right?
I feel like I'm having a major flashback this week. Like Wayne and Garth are running by me in my bedroom waving their hands in the air screaming "Do do do do. Do do do do." And then everything gets all jumbled and I'm ten years younger and wearing something completely ridiculous.
This has been a crazy week. Jay-Z came back! Scarlett Johansson came out with an album with Pete Yorn. (Hey, it's gotta be better than The Hoff's singing, right?) Oh, and Mason Jennings came out with something new..though everything he does is new to me.
