Ish Got Real!
Yesterday Trent gave you guys a few deets about our night out on the town. He was so right to describe the night as magical– it totally was! You should have seen the faux-ish jealousy all over the love of my life’s face. Awesomeness. But it was a special night for me because I got to actually hang with Trent outside of the world of G-Mail Chat. Here are a few fun facts I had to share with ya’ll. Enjoy!
That-Ish-Cray Of The Day
I don’t know what it is with rappers and seemingly bizarre samples… but I like it! Today, the love of my life pointed me in the direction of Pusha T‘s latest track, and as soon as the beat dropped I knew I had to share it with y’all. Okay now, technically it’s not an actual track, Pusha only spits one verse on Pies, but one verse is enough to qualify this song as today’s That-Ish-Cray Of The Day. I’m over here crackin up… The Backyardigans?! Hells yes. My love for rap and Pusha T and, the reality of my Nick Jr.-dominated lifestyle is finally coexisting in perfect harmony.

Earlier this week we got to hear the first new posthumous Aaliyah track, Enough Said featuring Drake and a lot of us had mixed feelings about the amazingness that is and was Aaliyah being re-introduced to the world via young Drizzy. There were also a lot of unanswered questions about who would actually be involved in the project (other than Drake), and whether or not Timbaland and Missy Elliot would be called on for production. A couple of days ago a statement surfaced that was allegedly from Aaliyah‘s brother Rashad Haughton. It read, ‘there is no official album being released and supported by the Haughton family.‘ However, others came forward and said that the Facebook account through which that statement had been released had been hacked and that this was an old statement from many months ago (notice there was no mention of Drake). And Drake himself has come forward and said (in the video above, which was recorded prior to all this drama) that all of the appropriate people who should be involved will be involved with the project.

Here’s the thing about Johnny Depp as a rock star. It. Just. Makes. Sense! Now this is only the second time I’ve seen him perform (the first time being during the 2012 MTV Movie Awards), but I’m totally sold. And seeing as how music was his first real passion (remember, he dropped out of school to become a rock star and ended up doing film), this whole movement is really working out for him. I would have totally lost it if I’d been at The Hollywood Bowl earlier this week. Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler suddenly announced to the crowd, “We’re going to need a little help out here… Johnny Depp, are you in the house?” Madness ensued as Johnny (newly single, not that I care or anything) sauntered on stage in that friggen crazy sexy brimmed hat and proceeded to rock the ish out of Train Kept A-Rollin’. Watch Johnny do the damn thing in the video; as long as Ryan Gosling doesn’t release a video of himself singing, like, old Keith Sweat songs, this is guaranteed to be the sexiest thing you’ll see all day.
From 'Weeds' to Broadway to Potential PopStardom
Hunter Parrish, the young actor who made the transition from TV to the Broadway stage, is making a new transition in his carrer … to popstar. Hunter has just unleashed his first music video for his first single Sitting At Home. The video is cute and the song is OK but … I was hoping for more. Parrish is known for all the nekkidness he brings to the TV series Weeds, I was hoping he would channel some of that oomph into his first music video. I mean, give the people what they want, right? Check out the video and see what you think. Does Hunter Parrish got what it takes to become a bona fide popstar?
But It, Maybe?
So … Carly Rae Jepsen, the girl who brought us the infectious and NEVERENDING pop song Call Me Maybe is ready to release her full length debut album so that the world can be filled with even MORE infectious and NEVERENDING pop songs. The album is titled Kiss and it will be released next month. Now, I don’t really expect the album to be full of massive Call Me Maybe-like hits but I do expect there to be at least a few hit singles. Are you ready? More »

Y'all Ain't Ready for This
Last year I fell in LURVE with Jessie and the Toy Boys when Jessie opened for Britney Spears on her Femme Fatale Tour. Today I re-fall in LURVE with her hot new single and music video for On With My Bad Self. The video, which Jessie co-directed herself, was released today and it gives us a fresh taste of the new music she’s been working on since the release of her debut EP Show Me Your Tanlines which she dropped last year. I understand that Jessie is readying the release of her full length album This Is How Rumors Start which is just too damn exciting. If the rest of the songs on her album is as infectious as On With My Bad Self is, we are SO not ready for the awesomeness. Don’t mind me, I’ve had this video on repeat since I got my hands on it so you’ll forgive me if I run off to take a bubble bath with bath salts :)
Is Mr. SexyBack Bringing Music Back?
OK, brace yourselves, y’all … there is a new interview out today with producer Jim Beanz that CLAIMS that Justin Timberlake is currently working on new music for a reported new album. Thus far, there are no solid details about this new music project but if Beanz is correct, then we might get to hear something new from JT relatively soon. Of course, there is no way of knowing how far along Justin may be in the “early stages” of his new music project … Hell, we don’t even know if this report of new music is even true but … it is very possible that Beanz is spilling the beans on JT‘s secret. HMMM. UPDATE: Timberlake‘s publicist has issued a statement on reports of new JT music. Read what the publicist has to say below. More »
Eminem called in to chat with Detroit radio station Channel 95.5 to discuss his work on the forthcoming album from his pet project Slaughterhouse and over the course of the interview, he revealed that he has started work on his next album — which is very exciting news. Now, Em didn’t go into much detail about his next album because he was really focused on discussing the Slaughterhouse album Welcome To: Our House … but he does confirm that he is in the early stages of the creation of his next album.
