Attention Hollywood: Stop messing with stuff that don’t need to be messed with.
If you can’t make a cover better than the original, then you just need to leave it alone. Why was it necessary to send this song the 20s? Just write something new and leave Beyonce’s only classic out of it. I mean, it’s not horrible.
I need to know who is still bankrolling Kelly Rowland’s music career because she ain’t had an actual hit since Nelly was still wearing Band-Aids on his face.
Kelly Rowland “Kisses Down Low”
I can’t figure out who’s paying for it, but I’m glad somebody is still footing these bills for videos to nowhere because I am securely in Kelly’s corner. Her last album actually had some really amazing tracks on it, but I’m not quite sure this lives up. It’s okay, but I’m just over these super-explicit R&B songs. Kisses Down Low…nobody could find anything more creative to say than that? Might as well just name the song Please Perform Cunnilingus. At least she had the sense to keep the styling cute and not slutty with all of those Basic Bird lyrics. Not all of the looks work — especially that haircut from “Stole” — but she is loving those implants, yes ma’am. Overall, I call it a success for Kelly, even if she did steal that runway from some old warehouse with props from Toni Braxton’s “He Wasn’t Man Enough.”
I didn’t even know you could get this much life so early in the morning.
Ugh, this ignorant trick with her big mouth, thinking she knows everything. I wish I could hate her but OMG THIS BEAT. I wish I knew how to walk in heels, because I would be on the roof right now in slutty underwear losing my mind.
I expected a lot more from Dave LaChapelle though. You got him to do your video and you just stand in a room in a black dress? I guess there’s some small genius there. This is the guy who’s spent half of his career making Amanda Lepore look fabulous, so this probably was the best choice for Mariah at this point.
All shade aside though, she looks and sounds fabulous. I’m finally looking forward to a new album. Good job, Mimi. Now don’t fuck it up.
The Postal Service is back! I didn’t even know I wanted them to come back until they randomly did. Praise.
The only thing missing from this song is the smell of Abercrombie with two white girls looking at t-shirts saying “OMG did you see the OC last night?”
But no, seriously, this song is classic Postal Service and I for one liked them way better than Death Cab for Cutie anyway. Plus, Ben sings “Lower East Side” within the first 10 seconds, so all hipster cred is met and I can breathe easily.
Some other cool (and notsocool) stuff is out. Check out these videos from Paramore, Biffy Clyro, Wynter Gordon, DJ Antillas, Alpine, Sevyn Streeter, Kim Sori, Matt Hires, The Cast of Cheers, Lianne La Havas, Borgore, and that Rihanna person.
