Introducing Jo Hamilton ( I Love This Diva)



I'm a big Jo Hamilton fan, so I'm wondering why I've never featured her on the blog before.

I think my thought process behind this travesty was that I discovered her a while after her first album had been released. Thus, I must have been waiting for some new material from the singer-songwriter to showcase to all of you. However, somehow I missed the release of the video for song Think Of Me back in February, and so a perfect opportunity to create a post slipped by.

[Watch] Ariana Grande Attempts Jessie J's "Bang Bang" climax! Sucessfully or Not, You Decide!



Jessie J is a vocal beast. I can't deny that- can you?! Case in point, the vocal during the bridge of her latest single Bang Bang.

[Free For All Friday]



This cat speaks to me...it really does....

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!

[Music Video] Anastacia - "Staring At The Sun"


The video for Anastacia's dramatic new single, Staring At The Sun, has debuted on Vevo.

Sounding like a mash-up of the pop and theater world, Staring At The Sun has Anastacia delivering drama and break-ups. It's a catchy song, all right, but I wish the production had been a smidgeon darker- to really match the Diva's delivery. Still, it is great to hear the American's unique pipes over new material.

[Music Video] Annie Lennox- "I Put A Spell On You"



Tis the season of the cover album, or so it seems! Barbra Streisand has just delivered hers, in the form of LP Partners- from which we saw a few songs performed on the Tonight Show- and now follows (another) veteran Diva: Annie Lennox.

[Watch] Jimmy Fallon & Barbra Streisand Sing Medley On "Tonight Show"


Don't hate me, but I can't stand Jimmy Fallon. And as such, I had a hard time really enjoying Barbra Streisand's performance on the Tonight Show.

[Music Video] Anouk - "Places To Go"



Anouk had a new video! I know somebody who'll be rejoicing...;)

Places To Go is a synth-laden pop song, featuring top-notch vocals and a catchy chorus that will surely be stuck in your head after the first listen. Undeniably channeling an inspirational vibe with its lyrics and production, the video for the song captures this with candid moments of the Diva being surrounded by loved ones and lovingly cradling her newborn son.

Awww. It's almost enough to melt this icy heart. But as Brandy once said, "almost doesn't count"(!)

[Music Video] Grimes - "Go"



Go was revealed in June to be the song Vancouver-born musician Grimes had submitted to the captain of the Navy- AKA Rihanna- for consideration for R8. Unfortunately it wasn't picked up for that project by Rih, leaving Grimes- who penned it- to claim it as her own and release it anyway.

Thank Gawd she did, because I loves it!!

Beyonce Caught Lip-Syncing During "On The Run" Tour In Paris



Other Divas breath a sigh of relief! Beyonce isn't a machine sent from the future to destroy your careers and scalp you of your wig and weaves. She is HUMAN, after all! REJOICE!
