I love Jennifer Lopez and think she’s pretty flawless, generally speaking, even if she is a raging ghetto biatch. In fact, I think that’s one of the main reasons I love her. However, there are just some things I cannot abide, and her new single, ‘I Luh Ya Papi’ (yes, I’m typing that correctly), is one of them.
Sure, we’ve heard ‘Girls’ and ‘Same Girl’ (real creative titles there, JLo), but those were just promotional releases. THIS is the song she is allowing to represent her as the first single from her upcoming album, which will be released later this year.
In addition to the horrendous title, the lyrics don’t fare much better. JLo sings about how she loves her man so much, she’ll give it to him right there in the car. Now there’s romance! On the other hand, she does insist that her man engages her mind before her body – but once he gets to her body, he will need “4 or 5 beds” because what she’s got to offer is that good. I just… LOL. Okay.
That being said, it’s REALLY catchy from the second listen on. God help me.

I have a serious problem, you guys. I hate Robin Thicke. I hate this song. Jessie J is only marginally bearable anymore… and yet I woke up with ‘Calling All Hearts’ – which is apparently actually DJ Cassidy‘s song that the other two are featuring on – in my head. And I’ve only heard it ONCE. That’s all it took! I’m not sure what that means. Is it kind of a decent pop song after all, or am I being subject to some serious brainwashing? I vote the latter.
The most confusing thing about this video is how these three people came together for this song in particular. It’s pseud0-disco to listen to, but the video has B-Boys and Girls and way too much pink shit. The lyrics and the concept are terrible, DJ Cassidy is… whatever, Robin Thicke serves no purpose, Jessie J thinks she’s starring in her own Broadway musical and it’s all a disaster. So why is the chorus on repeat in my brain? HELP ME!

I’m not really sure to make of ‘Adrenalina’, the new single by Jennifer Lopez, Ricky Martin and Wisin. I’ll admit my ignorance in saying that I’ve never heard of Wisin, but given that this song is done entirely in Spanish, I’m assuming he’s a big hit in the Latino music world.
The song isn’t all that bad, really. There’s nothing special about it, and sort of makes me feel like I should be clubbing in Mexico City or something, even though I’ve never been clubbing (seriously – no interest) and I’ve also never been to Mexico City. Basically, I’m entirely out of my element here, though I do speak Spanish, so I guess that’s something.
I’m sure JLo’s fans will be happy to see her singing in Spanish again (and looking hot, to boot), and Ricky Martin fans (he has those, right?) will be happy to see him doing anything at all. I kid!
The biggest problem is the close dancing with Ricky and Jennifer. Just make that shit stop IMMEDIATELY.

I feel like Coldplay gets a lot of stick here in the US, but I really love them! I’ve been a fan since Parachutes was released, then fell off somewhere around Viva La Vida, then came back during Mylo Xyloto. I even saw them over in the UK during the Mylo Xyloto tour, at an outdoor stadium show in the pouring rain, and they were incredible, so it’s safe to say I’ll always be a fan.
I was a little unsure when that song leaked last week that sounded literally like a track from a Bon Iver record, ‘cos that’s just not them. Thankfully, we’ve got their actual new single now, which IS very much them, and it’s called ‘Magic’. The track was put online on Monday morning, and is taken from their forthcoming studio album, Ghost Stories, which is due out on May 19th.
Listen to ‘Magic’ below and sound off. Do you like Coldplay? Do you like the song?

Well, this was never going to end well. Katy Perry has gone full-on Egyptian for for the ‘Dark Horse’ video, which is a shame, because I rather preferred the whole witches’ coven/The Craft vibe she had going during her performance of this track at the Grammys, to be honest.
It’s still a great song and will do really well, no doubt, but it’s a bit strange and I’m sure the cultural appropriation police will be ringing their bells anytime now (especially after the whole geisha thing). I like it, generally speaking, and as far as videos go, it could be a lot worse.
What do you think?

Lady Gaga‘s been keeping it somewhat low key lately (or maybe I’ve just been ignoring her), so I wasn’t too exhausted off to bat to see her pop up on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to perform ‘Artpop’. It’s a terrible song and an absolute racket, but this version is actually pretty inoffensive.
I like the start on the piano – Gaga can actually sing and sing well when she’s not lost in her own moronic ego. You sorta have to ignore the lyrics to this song, which are a bit daft and ~anti-establishment~ and up herself (as usual), but seriously, I’ve seen worse. Good to see she’s adopted the Donatella Versace wig as part of her act now. She also has zero rhythm and should never dance, but uh, besides that, right on!
Side note: has she got even MORE plastic surgery in the past few months, or is this just a weird makeup job? She doesn’t look ANYTHING like herself!
