Clifton Shores is coming

The Hills might be over, but this show could be the next best thing. It’s MTV’s latest reality TV drama called Clifton Shores. It shows a bunch of young American women moving down to South Africa for what appears to be a once in a lifetime opportunity, to be party hosts. They’re working closely for their billionaire boss. It has all the makings of a great reality show, that isn’t scripted *coughs*. Beautiful women, bulky, toned guys, drama between friends all set on the magnificent backdrop that is Cape Town, the Mother City, South Africa. Clifton beaches are amazing but who knew they could hold so much drama too 🙂 The show is expected to start later this year on MTV. As soon as I have more details on the cast and the broadcast details, I’ll bring them to you.

Happy 4th of July

To all my American friends colleagues and to the rest of you who I haven’t had the pleasure of meeting, happy 4th of July to you. A friend said on Twitter last night that she was celebrating her first 4th of July in the US by having a good old BBQ. I can’t wait for my first 4th of July 🙂 Enjoy celebrating the Declaration of Independence in 1776 – and of course your day off today!

Christina Aguilera’s Super Bowl blooper

Whoops… Five time Grammy Award-winning star Christina Aguilera had the duties of singing the American national anthem, “The Star-Spangled Banner” at last night’s Super Bowl at the Cowboys Stadium. While her voice is powerful, the star lost her way in the track. Eish, SMDH! Christina released a statement earlier saying, “I got so caught up in the moment of the song that I lost my place. I can only hope that everyone could feel my love for this country and that the true spirit of its anthem still came through.”

Choice of words/ terms doing the rounds on the net:
Epic Fail
What a cost
Atrocious
Shocking

You take your pick!

Justin Bieber ft. Jaden Smith – Never Say Never

It pisses me off that I like this song, but I will shamelessly admit it. Justin Bieber and now rising superstar Jaden Smith have teamed up for this song called Never Say Never. What do you think? You like/ hate?

Locnville stars on the Von Vodcast

Locnville is an hip-hop/electro outfit from South Africa (and America). The outfit, made up of twins Brian and Andrew Chaplin, were born in New York some 19 years ago. They’re brilliant, refreshing and offering not only South African fans something new, but soon they’ll be offering international audiences the same thing too! Their first single, ‘Sun In My Pocket’ raced up the charts and now their second single ‘6 Second Poison’ is doing the same. Check out the videos below and to find out more about the guys in my interview above.

Now a little birdie whispered in my ear yesterday telling me that they’re off to L.A. for meetings with very prominent producers. Big things await them and as soon as anything in confirmed, you’ll hear about it first right here! For now though, be sure to check out their album, ‘Sun In My Pocket.’ It is currently number 2 according to Musica and it’s moved over 15 000 copies in the two weeks since it was released, big up. Music videos, as promised:
