2016's breakout supernatural comedy hit Ghostbusters was packed with projectile vomiting ghouls, four amazing lead women, and a soundtrack to die for. And, who knew Chris Hemsworth was funny?
The album features new music from Zayn. He delivers an easy slice of easy listening with “wHo”. After all who are you going to call when your all alone? Elle King stomps in with her hell raising “Good Girls” and there's enough versions of “Ghostbuster” to make anyone happy. Walk The Moon, Pentatonix, and the original by Ray Parker Jr. all make appearances.
The most inventive of these new additions is the Fall Out Boy/Missy Elliot collaboration, “Ghostbusters (I'm Not Afraid)”. It blends their rock n roll inclinations with Missy's flow for one of the most explosive reimaginations. Expect one of these songs to light up radio this year, especially with the movie's continued successs.
Fortunately we have a stream lined cast to keep our expectations up.
We have the single lonely girl played by Dakota Johnston. She was born a star from the help of Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith. Her mother is still beautiful by the way. Dakota might be a little boring, but we have time to work that out of her. She seems picture perfect to play this role especially after scandalizing us in 50 Shades of Grey of franchise. Her mother refuses to watch them.
The two I saw in the trailer are supposed to be are white candy. Neither of them are too sweet. Jake Lacy is going to be there. He's fine. I've never seen him before. Ander Holm is also in it. I only know him as the pastor that Mindy Kaling dates in The Mindy Project. I'm sure he's a fine actor. I will make my judgement on the movie screen .
Damon Wayan is also in it. The junior one. I think he cute. I have no idea what his role is, but he's bound to be funny. If the writers don't let us down this movie will be amazing.
He wasn't wrong, but he was stanning hard. Who are universally famous Australian recording artists? Olivia Newton-John, Kylie Minogue, and ACDC. Sia if you want to go current. Their platinum certification is 70,000 copies compared to the United States a million copies. The thresholds are wildly different. Havana Brown's “We Run The Night” sold over a million copies in this country. She might be one of the highest selling Australian recording artists, but that doesn't mean well renowned.
This was the song I stood for. “Bullet Blowz” was good. It was a club banger. Too much of a club banger for radio. That's a damn shame, because that song is amazing. Havana slayed it. Our bald headed boy DJ Kronic served up some sick beats. You couldn't figure out the name of the song to save your life. It was tragically not destined for success.
Buy "Bullet Blowz"
The music video? To die for. Literally. There are sexy shirtless men surrounded in a stilted western themed extravaganza where Havana Brown gets her revenge. The concept is already more original then the shoot she and Pitbull did for “We Run The Night”.
Buy "Battle Cry"
She croons. She slays. Havana Brown's “Battle Cry” deserves to top your end of summer playlist.
With any luck we should have a second studio album release by the end of this year. I will keep you updated. With even more luck it might even be released in the United States. Wouldn't that be nice. Shipping from Australia takes too much time.
If I tried doing a Q&A there would be no questions. You my eight readers would be like, I hope one of the other seven asks a question. And, this is her first video. If that does not convince you of the star power behind this girl I don't know what will. She already had the following to launch a video and launch it with a Q&A.
Forewarning that her youtube channel is ten times better then mine. Her instagram is at least a million times more impressive then mine. Even, if it is all lips. I'm just fan girling from a hundred miles away and that's when you know that someone is a celebrity.
The one thing that you must be prepared for before you watch this video is her love for Fall Out Boy. Specifically, Pete Wentz. I think she wants to have his babies. Honestly, I was a little surprised when this came out so strongly in her video, although her tumblr should have put me onto this information.
Pete Wentz is 36 years old. Divorcee. Certainly not unattractive. Still it came to me as a surprise. I did not anticipate this as her type, but I only see her every two years. I can't say I can judge. I am also in love with a much older married man named Matt Bomer. We all have our vices.
Love yourself and watch her very first video. There is no news on when a follow up will be released. Compare it to my first video and understand why she's internet famous and I'm not. Also feel free to send me money for introducing you to Gamma Brother Cas. Meme loving freak.
Much like Ester Dean her focus has been behind the music's production. She is a hit maker and what's more sexy as fuck. Besides a stray studio album she released in 2004, Bonnie McKee's solo career has been uneventful. She's planning on changing that.
I have sporadically been watching Bonnie McKee's career since she released “American Girl” back in 2013 from her still upcoming studio album. I heard this song on the radio of all places. I heard multiple times all in the same day and it was clear. I was either going to love it or I was going to hate it. I really thought this song was going to blow up. It didn't.
Buy "American Girl"
The only thing that worries me is that Bonnie McKee is no longer with her major record label. Something about not having artistic control or whatever it was. She is no longer with them. Now, I like “Bombastic”, but this needs a good record label push. The song and the video are not on the viral level of “Gangnam Style”.
This is also hopefully just a teaser for her album, which should be released at some point later this year. And, “American Girl” along with “Sleepwalker” will find their way on to the track list. The EP is called Bombastic and it's guaranteed to be just that. It's out on June 30th. It will be the four hottest songs of the summer all in one place. You can preorder it now on iTunes.
Preorder the Bombastic EP
If we're being really honest I have never read the books. I implied that I read them, but I didn't. I read some really trashy books with some good sex scenes, but spending more then ten dollars on a book with some hardcore BDSM is not for me.
I am here for those less then a dollar, free kindle books. There is one series you all need to read called Big Girls Do It Better. Slay me. The whole series was free when I downloaded it and I loved it. It is a little sad, but it's like empowering. One that I read was kinky as fuck. It was called Stripped, Paddled, and Bound and it was about college hazing. That book was rough, but the cover is everything.
It was not. It was about this boy who was captured by the vikings and turned into a sex slave. Oh, my god it is so nasty and so good. Can't favorite that book enough. And, there are sequels. It's just my idea of a good time. I just enjoy pointless sex stories. Most of them are so awkward and funny. They're great. If you ever need a recommendation, I am here for you.
Like, everything about this movie will be perfect. The soundtrack is something we're all going to buy. You need to hear the Weeknd's “Earned It”. He's the boy who dueted with Ariana Grande on “Love Me Harder”. It's luscious. That's what this song it.
Buy "Earned It"
And, if you have not heard Beyonce's new rendition of “Crazy In Love” for this movie, I am disappointed in you. Because, that means you haven't watched the trailer. What is your life.
Disco is back from the dead. After three dormant decades, it is back with Giorgio Moroder leading the way. You could make the argument that disco never died and that it simply evolved. In Europe this was very true. Disco didn't fade, dance music changed. The United States, however really did have a come to terms with bringing disco down, and it wasn't until Madonna that dance music really came back in vogue.
Giorgio Moroder is probably not a household name to most people. Not even those who lived through the highlights of disco. I know who he is, because of his work with Donna Summer. I don't think I've really talked about her on the blog, but I love Donna Summer. Needless to say you will see Giorgio Moroder's name stamped across a lot of Donna Summer hits “Love to Love You Baby”, “Hot Stuff”, “I Feel Love” to name a few.
He's an iconic record producer. Quite recently his sound had a surge of popularity when Daft Punk enlisted him for their album, Random Access Memories. It won a Grammy for album of the year, spawned the massive hit that was “Get Lucky”. I was never interested enough to really look into it, but it received phenomenal reviews.
Fun fact that he also did the Scarface soundtrack. Jenny knew this for some odd reason. I don't know why, she is surprisingly skilled in knowledge in film scores and soundtracks. Something, I am not.
The moral of the story. The reason he is the subject of conversation is that Mr. Moroder is releasing a new album at the age of 74. There will be a slew of guest hit makers, much the way David Guetta and Calvin Harris tailor their albums.
At the moment there is no release date, but I will keep you updated. I'm definitely curious about this project. What does this 74 year old man think he can contribute to pop music? I have no idea and that's what is so intriguing, as his last studio album came out over 30 years ago. The same time disco died. He is now back, and about to let us have it?
Collaborators include: Britney Spears, Charli XCX, Kylie Minogue, Sia, Mikky Ekko, and Foxes.
Obviously, I am excited for new Britney music as the rest of the world is. I'm kind of bored with Charli to be honest. I am considering buying Sucker next week, though. I still haven't decided. Kylie Minogue is irrelvant to Americans.
There's no reason Giorgio shouldn't enlist hit maker Sia, especially with her recent chart successes. As far as Mikky Ekko and Foxes go. I don't really have anything against it. I thought Mikky Ekko's career had flat lined after his duet with Rihanna, so if he can get his name back out there he might finally drop that solo album.
Who even knows what's happening with Foxes. She sang “Clarity” for Zedd and now she's on a veteran producers album. I suppose that's exciting for her. I have no interest in her career. If it blows up, I will take note, until then. I have better things to do.
One song has been released from the album so far. It is mainly instrumental, but it has me interested in this new project. It's called “74 is the New 24”.
I don't know if I would go that far.
Me, over here it is not happening. I just don't comprehend social media. It's one reason this blog doesn't have a facebook. No one uses it anyway, and facebook informed me that my name isn't actually Bubbles Utonium. What a bold faced lie. Of course I'm Bubbles.
So, needless to say. That just didn't happen. I guess the reason I care about twitter is because it's such an outward reflection of like your position in social media. It clearly states how many you follow and how many follow you.
It is vain of me to want more twitter followers to let people know that people read my blog. Granted, I blog about myself and me and the things I like. So, this really shouldn't surprise any of you. I also want more twitter followers, then my former blogmates. Because, I'm a pathetic bitch. I accept this.
For a while there I just followed anyone and everyone I wanted on twitter, then I realized my follower count was 16, and me over here was following 91 celebrities.
One of my problems is that I don't follow back. If your twitter does not interest me I am not following you. I will not hunt people out, just so they will follow me. I'm sorry. There are a few people on twitter I have followed back. I'm just like you seem cool. Maybe a little basic, but your blonde, I'm blonde. We can get along.
Needless to say that ended. I made a hard 80 cuts from my twitter roster. It hurt me. It hurt the people I was closest to, but it had to happen. And magically that day I gained two followers.
I thought it was magical. I had finally done something right. This plateaued. Then, I started hashtagging like crazy, and that's where I am today. I use hashtags that don't make sense, and know I have 30 followers. Give or take the few on the fence followers.
People on twitter or so finicky. They will just unfollow you. These five Lady Gaga twitters unfollowed me when I mentioned my article on Madonna. It took less then an hour. I wanted to tell them to calm down. You can like Madonna and Gaga as I do. They are not on opposing sides of the world.
My newest scheme has been to post screenshots (because, I don't know how to embed) tweets on tumblr. I don't know how successful this is campaign is going, probably because I'm not a funny person naturally, but we shall see.
Someone actually did come for little old me on twitter, though. Yes. You better believe it I got in my first twitter feud. Only I didn't respond back directly.
And, this person decided to reply:
Now, I decided to be the stronger person and tweet out my stance on Miss Azaelia Banks without confronting this person who needs to calm down.
I hope this helped you avoid my pitfalls on social media. I'm sure you'll find your own. But, make it to the top. I'll be struggling through all of them until twitter is replaced with the newest social media.
For people not invested in the process of Madonna's new studio album. It is a lot of information to keep up with. Collaborators, tracklists, instagram pictures. That is why I will try to summarize the event that is sure to hit us in year 2015.
For over a year now Madonna has been teasing us with the release of her 13th studio album. It's been a cruel process to the fans. At the start of this year, I thought there was a strong possibility that we could have a new album that summer, maybe later that year. Well, it is no longer later this year. It will be 2015. No release date within 2015, but I think the album is close to done.
From the collaborators swirling around in the studio, this album should be EDM inspired. We have Avicii, Diplo, Disclosure, Natalia Kills, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Nicki Minaj, Alicia Keys all as possibilities.
Avicii is for all intensive purposes confirmed as a collaborator. I do not approve. Although, it doesn't surprise me that Madonna likes him. His music is derivative of her American Life album. His lack of originality and his critical acclaim bother me as Madonna's similar work was derided by the critics. However. I have chosen to accept him as the Queen has graced him with her presence.
Diplo is confirmed. Diplo is just a producer. You probably know some of his work. He's the man behind “Paper Planes”, “Look At Me Now” and “Too Close”. He has guaranteed us that there are three certified smashes from the album with his name attached to it. Now when I listed those three songs earlier and said this is what you should know him for. That is literally all you will know him for. He's worked with other big names, but those are the hits he's attached to. Three.
Now Disclosure is interesting. They're a relatively new production team. I don't particularly care for the Sam Smith fronted “Latch”, still with the right backing vocals (*cough* *cough* Madonna) I'm interested. They said recently to Billboard that they are not working with Madonna, but they would “consider it”. Everyone would consider it. Are you being shady, Disclosure. Are there plans to work with Madonna that you are respectfully choosing not to inform us of. That is my question. I think they are definitely possibilities. I expect to see collaborations from them on her new album.
This brings us to a very interesting point. Natalia Kills, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Nicki Minaj, and Alicia Keys have been linked to this album. The question is are they appearing on the album as songwriters or featured artists?
Natalia Kills I am very up in the air about. She is a wise move for Madonna to team up with. Natalia has that underground pop vibe that could lure the hipsters into looking into a Madonna record. I think a duet or just some backing vocals from Natalia Kills would be great for the album.
The same goes for Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Nicki Minaj, and Alicia Keys. I like what they bring to the table. Katy Perry has been rumored to have been collaborating with her since their S&M themed V cover shoot last Labor Day. Miley Cyrus's twerking “We Can't Stop/Don't Tell Me” mash up with Madonna this year shows it as a possibility. And, I think it would be a great move. Both Katy Perry and Miley Cyrus draw from different sectors of the pop market. It is too bad that the Queen couldn't have gotten Katy during her Teenage Dream phase. Everything Katy was touching turned multi-platinum, but she will still be useful to her.
Nicki and Alicia are collaborators. No question. Who knows what song Alicia Keys will be featured on. This is a rather new announcement made through Madonna. Personally. I'm shocked Nicki is back in the studio with Madonna. I love it. It will be great. Madonna almost never collaborates twice with someone. William Orbit and the producers of her earlier records being the major exceptions.
What's great about all these women is that they all draw from different sectors of the pop market. This new album will be big. It will catapult Madonna to the upper echelons.
Word has it that Nicki Minaj is doing a rap verse for a song, tentatively titled “Bitch, I'm Madonna”. I hope this song exists. However, in the way of star power. A “Bang, Bang” style trio would be fantastic. Imagine.
Titled, either “Messiah”, “Living For Love”, “Rebel Heart”, “Sorry Not Sorry” or “Unapologetic Bitch”. I repeat. “Unapologetic Bitch”
Featuring: Nicki Minaj and Miley Cyrus.
Yes. Do you feel it. Can you imagine. Shaking at the thought of it. Also in case you weren't aware all of those song titles I threw out there are popular tags Madonna has been adding to her twitter and instagram. Conversely all of those tags could be the title for her new album.
It saddens me that the album won't be out this year, but I think it's a good thing for its sales. Madonna is a legend. Legend status doesn't get you on the radio. If anything it's a barrier to get on the radio. Madonna does not need to be fighting the Rihanna's for radio play this holiday season. When the music industry has slowed back down, she should strike. For all intensive purposes, though I think the album is done.
A “source” stated that if the album was done there would be sales sheets and other proof it was coming out this year. They said she would have a cohesive plans for music videos and the “look”. Now if anyone does follow her on instagram. Madonna has the look down. She's settled on what this album is. It's just not going to drop. Anyone who suggests that Madonna will drop an album like Beyonce did last year is blindly mistaken. This is Madonna bitch. She is not going to copy someone that shamelessly.
The earliest I feel we can hope for any music from this new untitled set is December. An album release in February at the earliest. The first public performance of a lead single at Dick Clark's New Year's Rocking Eve. I would push that forward to the Grammy's in February. Leaving the album to a release date in March or April of 2015.
Once, she has a large public performance of her single she can drop the album and go on tour. Drop it like MDNA and link ticket sales to the album. She doesn't need to prove herself anymore and she certainly doesn't need a song on the radio.
At this point it's more a point of pride. If however she's going to get on the radio. We need better promotion then what we got for MDNA. And, a better lead single. I love “Give Me All Your Luvin'”, but “Girl Gone Wild” was a better choice. Especially if all America was going to hear of the new album at the Superbowl was that song.
In the words of Madonna, "Music makes the people come together."
