We luh-uhved this performance. AK gave us one heck of a mini-concert; vocals on point, hair and make up on point, songs on point... What isn't there to love?

This was actually quite a good performance - light years better than that ish she gave at the AMAs.

Thinking maybe Rhi should stick to these kind of performances where she doesn't really have to 'dance' and can carry it off on soul alone - cause you can't deny the girl's got at least that.

WEEKS SUMMARY: Song, Interview And Trailer Of The Week

WEEKS SUMMARY: Song, Interview And Trailer Of The Week


By now you guys know how this works. Every week, we pick what we think la semaine has offered us best. Then we post them all in one tidy section for you.

This week, we have Mariah's H.A.T.E.U, also known as her next single - which we personally can't get enough of. Understated, beautiful vocals, kick-arse beat... what's not to love?

And speaking of what's not to love, we have an excerpt from Jimmy Fallon's interview with the gorgeous and oh-so-nice Blake Lively, which just made us love her even more.

Last up this week, is the second international trailer for what must be one of the most highly anticipated movies of the decade - Toy Story 3.

Enjoy...

NJI: Gaga And Janet Jackson To Perform On X Factor







According to reports, both Lady Gaga and Janet Jackson are set to perform on the X Factor, 6th December.


While J.J. is set to make her only UK performance of the year with 'Make Me', the Gagita will at last perform, for the first time in Britain, her hit single Bad Romance (one of our favourite songs of this year).



Can you imagine our excitement when we first heard this? It's going to be sick!



And remember, come Sunday, both Rhi and AK are set to perform as well...

VERDICT: Our Thoughts On Cheryl Cole's New Video For Three Words...

VERDICT: Our Thoughts On Cheryl Cole's New Video For Three Words...







Directed by Vincent Haycock, and featuring a Gaga-esque C.C., the vid for 3 Words is far superior to that of her debut, with a better wardrobe and a partner in BEP frontman, Will.I.Am (who also produced the track).

Sadly we're not big fans of the song; it's nowhere near as good as Fight For This Love - which was by no means great, anyway- which has sold to date over 600,000 copies in the UK alone, and is on track to be the bestselling single of the year, and is considerably more annoying and lacks a basic beat.

Still, we were right about her last single going to #1 just 'cause she's on the X Factor, and watch this one also do well. Now, whether or not she'll still be doing well come April when the novelty's worn off, remains to be seen.

We love Cheryl, but we seriously doubt it.

PCD Have Broken Up?

PCD Have Broken Up?


If the New York Post is to be believed, lead singer, Nicole Scherzinger's relationship with the other girls has deterioated to the point where they have now reportedly split.
A source says : 'It is war. They have broken up for good. None of the other girls are speaking to Nicole, who they believe took the limelight then went off to do her own thing."

Um, Ok. First question: 'Does anyone remember back in 05 when all the girls had solo scenes? If you don't, go back and watch the Beep vid with Will.I.Am - all six had a solo scene with him. Compare that to the Whatcha Think About That vid with Missy where only Nicole had a solo scene.'

Secondly, it seems to have become the Nicole Show; does anyone recall Melody calling her out on it at one of their shows earlier this year, 'Thanks for supporting me... even if I'm not featured'... OOOH... And their latest single, Hush Hush, was all The Pussycat Dolls Featuring Nicole Scherzinger. Alright, then.

Sadly, we still can't bring ourselves to care really. Gone are the days of 05/06 when we were on PCD and actually gave two shits about whether they were splitting up or not. Love them individually, not sure about them as a group. Especially as this news comes as a surprise to no one.

Be honest; who actually expected them to see this decade out, anyway?

Still, the end of an era and all that.

We suppose.

UPDATE:

According to PCD's creator, Robin Antin, they are still very much 'alive'. She had this to say about the above reports...

'The Pussycat Dolls are very much ALIVE and there is NO truth to the silent treatment statements.

"Nicole and the Dolls have ALWAYS been close. Nicole is and always has been a strong creative force within this group and I cherish the way we collaborate."

She continued: "The Pussycat Dolls have proven their success over many years and will continue to do so.


Um, OK, sweetie. But, forgive us if that all sounds a bit iffy - like the Spice Girls excuses before Geri quite, so we won't hold our breath for another release from Nicole and co.

SNEAK PEEKS: Four Gossip Girl Sneak Peeks Of Next Ep - Treasure Of Serena Madre

SNEAK PEEKS: Four Gossip Girl Sneak Peeks Of Next Ep - Treasure Of Serena Madre





Yep, we know. We're all GG less for the next two weeks, so, to tide us over, we've posted below not one, not two, not three, but four sneak peeks of the next ep - Treasure Of Serena Madre, to be aired Monday 30th November.

The first has Chuck informing Nate about the affair Serena's having with his married cousin, Tripp, while the second has a v. funny conversation between Mr Archibald and Dan, the third sees thanksgiving at the Van De Humphreys (yes, we coined that), and the last, a discussion between our favourite adulterer and S.

We've always liked Keri if only for the fact that she seems to be one of those artists who is genuinely 'hungry' - she works hard and always gives 150%, even if she doesn't always perform that well, and she has more of a 'demo-singer' voice than anything else.

Still, I Like (off the German movie soundtrack, Zweiohrküken0 is a pretty nice song, and she looks nice in the vid.

NJI: The Beautiful Life Back From The Dead

Our prayers have been answered!
Just under two months after it was cancelled, the CW has announced that it will air the remaining four eps of TBL. Of course, there's no word yet on whether the cast will return to filming yet, but we're crossing our fingers as we type (don't ask how, we're just that good).
They should think about it though, cause with the shitty ratings Melrose Place has been getting (and no wonder, we couldn't even get through the first ep), they're going to need at least one new show to carry onto next year/season...

JUST RELEASED: Rihanna's New Video For Russian Roulette Leaks

JUST RELEASED: Rihanna's New Video For Russian Roulette Leaks






Ok, plus points:

The video is 5x better than the actual song any day of the week and is hella lot better than the one for Wait Your Turn.

It's actually pretty good and the various outfits she's sporting are v. nice...

Now, minuses...

At first, we could follow the story pretty easily, but this didn't stay the case for long. It got very confusing towards the end - what with the tiger flashing up every now and then (WTF was that about, anyway?), the random car crashing into her, her getting shot by bullets in the water (though that was our favourite scene - very visually pleasing).

We were just puzzled...

Still, overall, a pretty good video and maybe it'll become clearer the more we see it. Or, then again, it could be like JT's vid for Sexyback... which got more and more confusing the more we saw it...

JUST RELEASED: Rihanna's Rated R Album Sampler/ Preview

JUST RELEASED: Rihanna's Rated R Album Sampler/ Preview



After nigh on months of recieving nothing but hype about the 'massive' new Rihanna LP from some of the hottest artists (JT, Ne-yo) and producers/writers (The Dream, Tricky Stewart) in the game, it's understandable that we've been expecting an album at least on the level of the sick GGGB.

But, after hearing Russian Roulette - which we still don't really like -, Wait Your Turn (which has actually really grown on us), and the admittedly pretty good Hard, we weren't sure if Rated R would live up to the hype. And, after listening to the below, it seems like we were right.

While it's admittedly alright, compared to her last offering, most of the admittedly sick music she (used) to come with, and the high expectations we had of both J Brown and the many A-List songwriters/producers, it's just not on that level. While we like a couple of tracks - the two mentioned above, Cold Case Love and Rude Boy- the rest isn't quite ringing with us. Yes, there is a possibility the tracks may grow on us, but there are no immediate stand out smash hits like GGGB had - Sell Me Candy, Don't Stop The Music, Rehab... we could go on.

Overall, for us, it's quite disappointing and not up to par with either A Girl Like Me or GGGB.

Anyway, see what you think of the below.

TRACKS TO SKIP TO: Hard, Cold Case Love, Rude Boy, Wait Your Turn.






1. Mad House
2. Wait Your Turn
3. Hard featuring Young Jeezy
4. Stupid In Love (written by Ne-Yo)
5. Rockstar 101 featuring Slash
6. Russian Roulette (written by Ne-Yo)
7. Fire Bomb

8. Rude Boy (written by Ester Dean)
9. Photographs (featuring will.i.am)
10. G4L (Gangsta For Life)
11. Te Amo
12. Cold Case Love (written by Justin Timberlake)
13. The Last Song

JUST RELEASED: Queen B And Lady Gaga's Two Collaboes...


After weeks of anticipation and our breathless wait for a video (don't get all excited, it still hasn't been released yet), we finally have both collaborations between the fantabulous Queen B and Lady Gaga below.

After discovering that the Gagita was to feature in the remix vid for B's Video Phone, we were ecstatic on finding out that the latter was to feature in the former's next single off the sure-to-be-crazy Telephone. So, when we found the below, we knew we had to post them up asap.

Needless to say we love both, but beware that Lady Gaga's verse is reportedly as of yet unmastered. Both sound like they're going to be hits and, after seeing the vid for Bad Romance, and knowing the legendary Hype Williams has directed Video Phone, the anticipation for the videos of both is killing us...

Enjoy...

SNEAK PEEKS: Gossip Girl Previews Of Next Week's Ep - Last Days Of Disco Stick



With Monday's They Shoot Humphreys, Don't They? being one of the best eps of the season so far, with back-stabbing, uprisals, the introduction of the other Mafia-like dons/Queens of the UES, Queen J's kick-arse return with the Nate Archibald ('Nate Archibald is ... epic'), we loved every second.


So, as usual, we've got some sneak previews of next week's ep, The Last Days Of Disco Stick, which we are ridiculously excited for if only because the Gagita's performing her latest sick track, Bad Romance, at the request of a certain Queen B (no, not Beyonce, Blair Waldorf).

The below 3 previews see Dan and Nate discussing the now infamous 3some, and Mr Archibald informing him of just how stupid he has been; our favourite couple, Chair, having one of their infamously witty conversations; and a sneak look at the Gagita's performance...

Enjoy, ducklings...

With the release of hands-down the best video of the year for the sick track Bad Romance, and the leak of the below song Dance In The Dark (another of our favourite songs of the moment), we just had to dedicate this week wholly to the Lady Gaga's indisputable genius...
We leave you with both below...

Being that we love Skins like a fat kid loves cake (thanks 50), as soon as we saw this posted up on youtube mere seconds ago, we knew our first priority was to share it with all of you.

The above features clips of what looks a kick-arse new season; the writers just seem to get better and better every season... which means that the nine months a year where there is an absence of new Skins episodes (the seasons only run for three months at a time) are definitely worth the wait cause we'll be getting some sick stuff when January rolls round...

Whereas some people seem to think criticising Michael Lohan is the best way forward, we are of the opinion that he's the only one who seems to care enough about Lindsay to be trying to get her help. Yes, his methods maybe questionable, but the girl seems like she's got some serious issues. And her mother's always seemed like a bit of a fame whore to us - like, who goes clubbing with their daughter? Mom-ager yes, club-hopping bff no.
