Healthy Sex Education Video

Forget whatever video you saw in fifth or sixth grade… This is the only sex education video you need to see.

The video puts “porn sex” into perspective, which subsequently will make you feel much better about your own fruits and vegetables.

My key takeaway: vaginas are weird.

New Music: Neon Jungle “Trouble”

I loved this song and the group the second they started performing during the 2013 Victoria Secret Fashion Show.

Neon Jungle is a British girl group that hasn’t quite made it in the United States yet. Hopefully their performance during the 2013 Victoria Secret Fashion Show will create buzz and earn them some notoriety.

I’m a fan! I already can’t get enough of this song. 

Check out Neon Jungle’s “Trouble.” 

New Music: Britney Jean Review

20131204-092208.jpg

Here’s my song-by-song review (although somewhat bias) in 140 characters or less of Britney Spears‘ eighth album, Britney Jean.

1. Alien
Great song. Haunting vocals. Contagious lyrics. Definitely not Oops 2.0, but good in its own grown up way. Prefer leaked version better.

2. Work Bitch
After listening to the entire album, I think this was a weird first single to release. Especially “for the gays.” Good, but not my fave.

3. Perfume
It took me a while to warm up to Perfume (because I wear cologne), but… I do like it. Vocals are really strong. Lyrics are kinda dumb.

4. It Should Be Easy
Britney? No. Basically auto tune featuring will.i.am. However, I like the verses. “Million billion” gets me every time.

5. Tik Tik Boom
One of the best songs on the album. Should have been first single. Has mass appeal. Much more gay friendly. Less auto tune than normal.

6. Body Ache
The name suggests this song has potential, but it’s just okay. Not the best intro. The first verse is the best. Bad chorus. Okay beat.

7. Til It’s Gone
I liked Til It’s Gone the first time I heard it. Great beat with good lyrics. The intro verse pulls you in immediately. Vegas set list?

8. Passenger
Enter Jesus… The first of a few where Godney comes out, literally. Passenger is good, not great. Vocals are odd. Grew on me over time.

9. Chillin’ With You
IMHO… Maybe one of the dumbest songs I’ve ever heard. Fun and cute collaboration, but it fell flat. Not memorable or exciting.

10. Don’t Cry
Mid tempo ballad. Not bad, but not great. Britney speaks Spanish during the chorus (kinda). TBH… More relatable than Perfume.

11. Brightest Morning Star
And… More Jesus. I was depressed after first listening, but Brightest Morning Star has grown on me. Take it as you will. It is what it is.

12. Hold On Tight
I mean… The Deluxe Holy Edition? Song is, yet again, about Jesus. Strongest Britney vocals of the album, though. Amen.

13. Now That I Found You
Hands down my favorite song on the album. Great beat, great lyrics and great vocals. Should be a single. Club worthy.

14. Perfume (The Dreaming Mix)
No, no. Just no. The original is just okay as it is. Why slow it down? I could have done without this one… Sorry, Britney!

Overall, Britney Jean is okay. I’m not obsessed with any particular song (or songs) which makes me a little sad and suicidal. I was hoping for something better and more… Britney.

The album is also very far from being “personal,” which is how Britney has described it in countless interviews. Not sure if she’s even listened to the album. I can’t help but wonder what the album would have been like if will.i.am didn’t produce it… No one will ever know (unless tracks leak).

I’d say buy the album and give it a listen. Don’t get me wrong… There are a handful of good songs. Some diamonds in the rough, if you will.

Britney Jean is available in both deluxe and standard editions on iTunes.

Happy Halloween: Scary Laughs with Ellen

If I had to guess, I’d say that Ellen DeGeneres’ favorite holiday is Halloween! Take a look at Ellen’s epic Nicki Minaj costume this year! I mean… Those boobs!

Ellen_Nicki

 

Furthermore, she gets a rush our of scaring guests on her show throughout the entire year. Take a look at some of her most memorable scares:

There was Taylor Swift.

 

Selena Gomez.

 

Adam Levine.

 

Miley Cyrus.

 

Sean Hayes.

 

Emily VanCamp.

 

Taylor Swift again.

 

And again.

 

And again.

 

And… Again!

 

And the list of guests goes on and on and on.

Of all the people Ellen has scared over the past few years, my favorite, year-after-year, is her writer Amy. Each Halloween, Ellen sends Amy to a haunted house and films her fear. Amy’s reactions are similar to mine always worth a good laugh.

 

Check out Amy’s haunted house adventures from the last four years:

 

2013: Universal Studios Walked Dead Tour

 

2012: Haunted Hallway at Ellen’s Studio

 

2011: The Queen Mary’s Dark Harbor

 

2010: Universal Studios Hollywood Haunted House

 

I hope you enjoyed Ellen’s tricks on Amy as a little treat!

Happy Halloween!

New Music: Kelly Clarkson “Underneath The Tree”

Kelly Clarkson can do no wrong in my eyes.

Her voice is flawless.

She’s down to earth.

And she’s really funny. Just read her quick VMA recap:

 

Well, Kelly is back with her first Christmas album, Wrapped in Red, set to be released on October 25. The album will include covers of Christmas classics and original material.

 

Check out Kelly’s lead single from the album, which is likely to be an instant classic, “Underneath The Tree.”

 

Also, check out the Kelly’s cover of “White Christmas” from the album.

 

I guess Christmas came early this year!

New Music: The 1975 “Chocolate”

I couldn’t understand most of what they were saying the first time I listened, but I immediately liked the beat and flow of the song. After a few more listens (and a deep dive into the lyrics), the song really grew on me.

I think my boyfriend was pretty proud of himself for introducing me to something new that isn’t Britney. He did well.

Check out The 1975’s “Chocolate.”

New Music: Britney Spears “Work Bitch”

Britney Spears‘ new song is finally here and… It’s amazing!

I will admit that I am very bias, but I have a feeling this will do very well on the charts and impact the future of pop music. It’s Britney, bitch… She’s a legend.

Check out Britney’s “Work Bitch.”
