NEW MUSIC: Keri Hilson ft. Chris Brown “One Night Stand” Video

With a song title called “One Night Stand,” I was expecting to see an over the top sexual music video between Keri Hilson and Chris Brown.  We all remember her last video “The Way You Love Me” and his “No Bullshit” video.

But to my surprise, the interaction between Keri and Chris isn’t something we haven’t seen before.  Between the song, a simple concept and the two of them dancing at the end, the video definitely gives off a 90s/early 2000 vibe (the type of music many of miss). Like most song these days, I’ll have to listen to it a few times to determine if I really like it, but it’s definitely a little different than what we’re hearing on the radio right now. And honestly, that’s quite refreshing.

What do you think of the new video?

Lessons Learned From The BET Awards

Source: Clutch Magazine

Sunday night marked the 10th Anniversary of the BET Awards.  After last year’s disgrace of a show in honor of Michael Jackson, BET NEEDED to redeem themselves and make sure they got the show right!! And they definitely did; this show was 10x better than last year, but then again, they could only go up right?

The show was definitely entertaining.  Blog sites have been going crazy with commentary: recapping the show, talking about Chris Brown’s performance and Prince’s lack of enthusiasm.  Regardless on your take of the show, there are a few lessons learned from this year’s award show: 

1. Debra Lee Needs a Stylist (or a new one):

Every year, Debra Lee never fails to come out in some other the top outfit that would look great on someone else, but just doesn’t translate when she walks out on stage.  Is she picking out these outfits herself or does she have help?? And it doesn’t help that she seems to be nervous every time she speaks too.

Sidenote: Whoever told celebrities it was ok to wear sweaters and other winter clothing in 90 degree weather needs be fired. If these celebrities made that decision on their own, they clearly have no friends because there is no way I would let my friend walk outside like that.  It doesn’t make you look cool; you look foolish and uncomfortable.

2.  Never Try to Dress Like Your Kids

Jada Pinkett Smith. Need I say more? Usually Jada is on point when it comes to her red carpet outfits, but her 90s braids were an epic FAIL!! She looks like she goes tanning and was she wearing shorts or a skirt? Jada, we love you, but please stay out of Willow’s closet.

3. Lip Synching Rap Songs is NOT ok!

I don’t know who told Nicki Minaj that it would be ok to lip synch her 20 seconds on stage during the “Hello, Good Morning Remix” and “My Chicks Bad Remix”, but they clearly gave her some bad advice.  It wasn’t cool when Britney Spears did it, but at least she was dancing while “singing” so I understand if she didn’t want to sound bad and seem out of breathe. But Nicki, all you have to do is look like you’re having a seizure and say your 5 lines. Can it really be that hard??

4. Oldies Are Still the Goodies

From the surprise appearance by El DeBarge to Tyrese swooning the ladies with his Teddy Pendergrass tribute, these fellas proved once again that the oldies R&B is still the best.  I’ll even push early 90s into my “oldies” category because there is nothing like some 90s slow jams! The R&B music we were reminded of at the award show is exactly the type of music we’re missing today. I feel bad for these young kids today because they don’t have any clue as to what good music is.   I can tell you it isn’t Teirra MarieSponsor

 5.  We ALL Make Mistakes

This isn’t a new lesson learned, but I’m sure someone was expecting a reference to Chris Brown if I was going to talk about the BET awards.

We all make mistakes and would want to be forgiven in order to move on. Why can’t C Breezy do the same thing? If he has truly learned from his mistake and is trying to be a better man, then let him be. Should I even bring up other artisit who we have forgiven over the years?

I would talk more about this, but between twitter and blogs, I’m tired of talking about it…moving on…

6.  Pregnant is Sexy

Alicia Keys looked stunning at the award show; I guess she has a reason to glow now that Swizz Beats divorce is final and the two love birds can move on to create their own family.   This diva worked it on stage with her pregnant self, singing some of her biggest hits while being recognized as the BET’s Artist of the Decade.  I think she forgot for a second that she was pregnant, because she climbed on top of a piano to serenade the audience during her rendition of “Adore” for the Prince tribute. According to Necolebitchie.com, this was supposed to be her last televised performance until after the baby was born.  Well she worked it out!!! Ms. Keys proved Sunday night that while she may be pregnant, she is still sexy and fierce! I wouldn’t be surprised if this diva was 9 months pregnant trying to go on another world tour!

7. We All Have Meltdowns; It’s How We Recover That Really Matters!

Last year Kanye West went a little crazy and had to go into hiding.  So it was refreshing to see him open the show with his hit “Power.” His show was solid and surprisingly, we didn’t hear from Mr. West for the rest of the night.  Maybe he’s done a little reflecting and now has his emotions under control after his stunt at the MTV award show last year.  Only time will tell until the next MTV Video Music Awards, but until then, Mr West, we’re glad you’re back!

 That’s all I could think of at the moment.  What other lessons did we take away from Sunday night’s BET Awards show??

T.I. Video: Yeah Ya Know

T.I. recently released a video for his new song “Yeah Ya Know” from his second motion picture Takers, in theatres August 20th.  The video was released 2 weeks ago, so in the entertainment world, I’m late with this posting. BUT the eye candy looked so good, I felt that it was wasn’t too late to share the video!

Takers features Tip “T.I.” Harris, Paul Walker, Idris Elba, Jay Hernandez, Michael Ealy, Hayden Christensen, Matt Dillon and Chris Brown (glad to see he wasn’t banned from making movies).

I’m definitely going to check this movie out in August.  Ladies, who’s joining me!?!?

Is Chris Brown Back?

BET hosted “SOS:Saving Ourselves Help Haiti” on Friday, February 5th to raise money for the relief efforts in Haiti.  I flipped to BET to watch some of the performances and Chris Brown came on the screen.  Yes, Chris Brown; the one who we haven’t seen since last February due to his “incident.”  The guy who didn’t have a chance to participate in any Michael Jackson tributes.  Yes THAT Chris Brown.

Chris  Brown released an album last year, but it’s easy to forget since it wasn’t really a hit.  Does anyone remember the single(s) he had out this past year????? Didn’t think so!

So it was refreshing to see such a great young artist back on stage performing again.  While Chris Brown’s personal life flashed all over the news last year, let’s not forget he can still sing and dance his butt off (please believe, I am not comdoning what he did at all).  It’s nice to see him back to performing and I hope his performance at the BET event was a sign that he’s back on the scene.  Are you ready for Chris Brown to make a major comeback?
