Kimbra Serves Up Irresistable Disco-Funk With "Miracle"

Wow, Kimbra's Miracle is giving me life today!

I woke up feeling pretty grim - a feeling compounded by the sun and its mocking fierceness. However Kimbra has come to my emotional rescue with this disco-inspired ditty.

Miracle doesn't quite sound like anything I've heard from the Diva before- vocally or production wise- so either I've not listened to her debut album properly, or she's changing direction with her new LP, The Golden Echo.

Whatever the case, I needed this today, so thanks Kimi!

When The Music Moves You, Don't Let Nothing Stop You...

...even your son's second-hand embarrassment.

Paris Hilton Returns with "Come Alive"

So this happened yesterday [see video].

Having viewed/ listened to it, let's now play the "how nice can you be" game. Leave a positive comment, about what you just experienced, below.

Listen to Brandy Cover Coldplay's "Magic"

If you happen to be a fan of both Brandy and Coldplay, you are (potentially) in for a treat.

Clearly feeling Coldplay's new sound, the Diva took to the studio to record a cover of their single Magic. It wasn't a total rework, mind. Instead, the Diva added her own spice to the production by throwing in some of her trademark vocal harmonies to fill out the song.

Honestly, the original did little for me, so Brandy's version- which changes little- also left me feeling like I was being assaulted by a Jigglypuff. Her voice sounds good, don't get me wrong, but the song isn't for me.

Perhaps you guys will appreciate it!

[New Music] Traci Braxton - "Last Call"

Look who's going solo, everyone: say howdy to Traci Braxton!

The surname should be a big giveaway, but for those still unsure, let me go ahead and confirm that she is indeed the sister of Toni (and Tamar) Braxton.

Taking a similar route to her siblings, Traci is serving up Rnb with her debut song Last Call. Unfortunately, it also sounds like she's giving us a side helping of auto-tune, with some parts coming off almost robotic in tone. I could be wrong though, so don't quote me on her being computer assisted!

I guess a live showing of Last Call, or further material, will help me get a better feel for her real tone and timbre. Till then, I'll leave you all to make up your own minds.

Jezebel Tells us what we All already knew: Mariah Carey's Photos are retouched. Go Feminism!

We all know that Mariah Carey's promotional photos are airbrushed to the gawds. In fact, it wasn't too long ago we were all laughing about the ridiculous album artwork for Me. I Am Mariah. The Diva even seems to be self aware enough to know when it's gone too far, recently calling her own team out when the awfully edited cover for You Don't Know What To Do hit the net, tweeting:

[Free For All Friday]

Today's matinee movie is Betrayed. The synopsis is as follows:"A pregnant woman going through a divorce takes a secret holiday in a coastal village with her lover, but immediately suspects someone is watching them. When her boyfriend is kidnapped, she is forced to turn to her husband for help in saving him".

Hmm. Not sure if I'm going to enjoy this one. Seems a little serious. Anyone in the UK, this film is currently on channel 5.

If you don't know the score, here be the rules:
  • Try not to get too perverted- this site needs to basically be "safe for work".
  • If somebody starts a controversial subject, try keeping it civil when dealing with it. If things get out of hand please flag the conversation.
  • It would be nice if it stuck to music, but it's not a requirement! So talk about news, current events, how you're getting your hair done next time you hit the hairdresser! Whateves, really!
  • No nasty comments aimed at other users.
Inappropriate hugs to all of y'all (hi-fives to the underagers), and wishing you an awesome weekend!

[Listen] Britney Spears' Unedited "Alien" Vocals Leak

Ever wanted to hear Britney Spears sans auto-tune? Well today is your lucky day, as the original audio for Alien mysteriously found its way onto the internet.

The thought of this happening must be a concern for most vocally-challenged Divas. However, I'm guessing Britney will remain unbothered by this blip. The track's producer, on the other hand, seemed more concerned and issued a statement- thereby confirming the authenticity of the recording- in an attempt to do damage control:  

Watch Jasmine Sullivan gets Down With Muppets In "Dumb" Video

What's with all these Muppets running around in music videos of late? Has Jim Henson's copyright over his creations recently expired?

Whatever the case, the last place I thought I'd see them turning up was in a Jasmine Sullivan video. But that's just what I've witnessed with the comedy visuals for her new single Dumb.

Check out the Diva parodying famous show Cheaters with a cast of Tamaresque stitchlings.
