John Mayer‘s first single off his upcoming album Born and Raised has finally been announced… it’s called “Shadow Days.” I like it, and I’m glad he’s back to singing about love. Here’s a 60 second snippet….
I hate that he used the phrase “it sucks” in his lyrics, because that’s sh*t sounds super low budget to me… but there are worse things in life. At least he didn’t say “crunk” or something.
What do you think about my hubby’s new song? His music usually has to grow on me, though.
Jay-Z wrote a song about Blue Ivy Carter about her birf. It’s called “Glory” feat….. BLUE IVY CARTER. Yeha, you heard me.. BLUE IVY CARTER has already dropped her first song, and her contribution was her first cry, it’s towards the end. I wonder when she’ll get signed to Roc Nation.
The song is pretty sweet, though. In the lyrics he talks about a miscarriage Beyonce had previously:
False alarms and false starts, All made better by the sound of your heart, All the pain of the last time, I prayed so hard it was the last time. Last time the miscarriage was so tragic, We was afraid you’d disappear, Naw baby you magic.
You know what? This alone shows they have really good people around them, that it never leaked that she A) was previously pregnant or B) miscarried. They got to tell the world on their own terms. Here’s the song, the cry is at the end:
More about the birth………The notoriously private couple, that hasn’t even confirmed they’re MARRIED, released a statement about the birth, probably to shut everyone up about the c-section rumors:
“We are happy to announce the arrival of our beautiful daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, born on Saturday, January 7, 2012. Her birth was emotional and extremely peaceful; we are in heaven.’ They continue, ‘She was delivered naturally at a healthy 7 lbs. It was the best experience of both of our lives. We are thankful to everyone for all your prayers, well wishes, love and support.”
A rep from the hospital also said:
‘The suggestion that the couple paid $1.3 million to rent an entire maternity floor is simply not true. The family is housed in an executive suite at the hospital and is being billed the standard rate for those accommodations. Our executive suites are available for any patient, including the food service and amenities provided to the Carter family. We have made every effort to ensure minimal disruption to other families experiencing the births of their own children over the past three days. No security plan that we or the Carters’ security team put in place would have prevented or delayed families from gaining access to the NICU, and to date, no families have complained to the hospital about being denied access to the NICU.’
Welp. That clears everything up. It apparently didn’t cost $1.3 million, and they didn’t piss off other people at the hospital, even though some guy said he wasn’t allowed to see his baby. Good talk.
I am in love with this woman. Whoever she is. She’s a genius.
This is another one of her videos called “Vlog from Stockholm” It might’ve gone over a lot of people’s heads but…. it made me laugh.

SO EXCITING. During his May 16th “In Support Of Our Troops” benefit, John announced that his next album will be titled “Born and Raised” (the title of one of his recently debuted singles) and is set to be released sometime in October 2011.
Here’s a live, rough performance of the song, “Born and Raised.” I can’t wait for a studio version to come out. Very Bluesy. Very soothing. Very John.
Lady Gaga is a officially a joke, y’all. Could her album get any more ridiculous? She released her latest monstrosity entitled “Hair,” just in time for her May 20 release of the album. Here are some of the lyrics:
I’ve had enough,
this is my prayer,
that I’ll die living just as free as my hair.
Don’t let it go
It’s my identity
And I’ll die living just as free as my hair
NO GUYS, I didn’t get confused with parody lyrics of an SNL skit making fun of her crappy music….. those are seriously the lyrics to her song. “LOLWUT” is right. Lady Gaga has become a parody of herself.
The sad part is her album will still sell a million copies in the first week because her “monsters” are convinced she’s the best thing to ever happen to music, but her singles (“Born This Way” and “Judas”) have underperformed and are hardly being played on the radio. 4 days ahead of the album release and she debuts another stinker single.
This all cracks me up because everyone thought this album was going to be amazing. She hyped it way too much and created high expectations for it. Back in September her producer, Red One, told MTV the album was “too precious” to talk about and that it was a “Freedom album.” If by “precious” you mean “embarrassing” I totally get it, Red One.
Am I the only person that hates this? Anyone else? Anyone?

OK, so these aren’t all super handsome, but being a Prince means you get extra hot points because YOU’RE A PRINCE.
