Justin Bieber releases All That Matters video

I’d be interested to hear from all the (non) Beliebers out there about this one. Justin Bieber released his new music video called All That Matters yesterday and I want to hear from you. What do you think of the new track? For me, it’s one of his weakest offerings. I like a few of his songs and for all the haters out there, I’m not ashamed to admit that. He is good, he’s got star power (obviously) and he’s one of the biggest names in the game. However, this new track does absolutely nothing for me. My opinion… What do you think?

Watch: Rihanna – What Now official video

One of my favourite tracks off Rihanna‘s Unapologetic album is this one. It’s called What Now and the video is officially here. I got to see her perform this one live in concert last month, when she was here as part of her Diamonds World Tour. The way the crowd sang it with and then back to her was just too awesome. Rihanna is too gorgeous for words, love the video.

Details on the video:

Rihanna in SA: 3 days to go… SOS

The lovely Rihanna will be in South Africa very soon. There’s a massive frenzy happening in the media space, with everyone trying to figure out when she arrives. I have my thoughts and suspicions as to when that will be, but I’ll keep that to myself for now. So anyway, I’m continuing with my little feature that is checking out her biggest songs in the build up to the Diamonds World Tour officially shining its light in SA.

This track holds a lot of fond memories for me. It’s called SOS. The song hit the top of the charts and stayed on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart for three weeks. It spent a lot of time in the top ten for numerous weeks! It’s a banger and I’d love to see her perform it live!!

Delicious Festival in pictures

The first Delicious Food & Music Festival kicked off at the Blue Hills Equestrian Estate in Johannesburg at the weekend. The festival, presented by DStv, played host to some of the biggest names in the cooking and music industries. You’ll see them in the pics above 🙂 Great day out and hopefully the first of many to come.

Britney Spears releases Work Bitch

You want a hot body? You want a Bugatti? You want a Maseratti… You better work bitch… Those are the lyrics by pop superstar, Britney Spears. It will become an anthem for many, as we make our way towards the December holidays. In the southern hemisphere most people head down to the coastal regions to enjoy some fun in the sun and that means taking off your shirts, putting on your bikinis and board shorts… Like she says, you better work bitches 😉

Lets be honest, Britney has definitely bounced back. She’s worked hard on her image, her sound, her appearance and she’s looking gorgeous in this video. It’s nice to see her putting her dance moves into action again. Cool video by director Ben Mor. Share your thoughts in the comment box below.

Sidebar, fifteen years ago the star released her debut single Baby One More Time… I remember it clearly, gosh how time flies.

Listen: Britney Spears Work Bitch

It’s a new week and with that comes new music. Welcome Britney Spears into that equation and you better Work Bitch… HOT SUMMER SONG ALERT!!!

Viral twerk fail a fake

We were sold down the river yesterday by that twerk fail video yesterday. Apparently many suspected it was a spoof… I like how they all say that after the news broke that it was in fact a fake video. Caitlin Heller, the ‘victim’ in question actually goes by the name of Daphne Avalon. She’s a stunt woman in Hollywood.

She together with talk show host, Jimmy Kimmel got together and shot this video about two months ago. They wanted to “let the magic happen.” And boy oh boy, did the magic happen.

Jimmy Kimmel and ‘Caitlin’/ Daphne… you’re #winning!
