[Black Eyed Peas - Boom Boom Pow]

black eyed peas

So, I'm so ttotally behind on fashion week right now, and I'll try to catch up on that on the weekend. But for now, it's just me and the music. I got a new one here for ya today, called "Boom Boom Pow" by BEP. And, I must say this, I knew they would come back, but this new song is not as great as i had hoped. I expected much more after I heard (a while ago) another leak from them called 'Imma Be' [play below]. The song, is sort of average - it's that type of good, but sort of boring song that you hear all the time. Anh, whatever, I've always loved the peas, and I've been eagerly awaiting their return for some time now; I'm fully content with whatever they produce. Just glad their back! WOO!

Beaten Rihanna Photo appears online


Article taken from (with some changes)

A photo of what is reportedly Rihanna's face with bruises, scratches and swelling has appeared online.

Celebrity website is reporting the photo was taken after Rihanna's boyfriend, Chris Brown, allegedly beat her earlier this month following the Clive Davis pre-Grammy party.

In reaction to the release of the photos Los Angeles Police Department issued a statement saying that the "unauthorised release of a domestic violence photography immediately generated an internal investigation", adding that its leak was "considered serious misconduct with penalties up to and including termination".

Brown was arrested in Los Angeles on February 8 after the pair cancelled their appearances at the Grammy Awards that night, as previously reported. The teenage singer, who issued a public apology earlier this week, is still under investigation for domestic violence charges.

P.S. I was listening to the radio this morning (which is now) and it was Perez Hilton radio, and I think Perez mentioned that Chris is being investigated for attempted murder. OH. EM. GEE.

[Miley Cyrus - The Climb]

Erhm, hmm.. what can I say about this song? ....
I'm a pretty small fan of Miley Cyrus, I mean, I try to like her, but its really difficult. But I'm rooting for her. Especially after her asian candid photo "scandal". Whatevss. So she has a new video for her Hannah Montana movie, and well, there it is below!

No I'm kidding, that's not all I'm going to say....uhhmm, the song is all 'inspirational' or a kidd-y attempt, at that. Disney always seems to have either one or the other: a sad attempt at a pop-dance song, or a childish inspirational song. This one, I would say isss that second one (yeah, you just listen up!). Miley's voice is getting better, I guess, I don't know, andd she sounds pretty good when she's not yelling. I wouldn't really say this song is for moi, I'm not really one for country or any country-ish style, but I'm hella sure Miley's err Hannah's (Montana's) fans will like the song. Oh! And before I forget, I'll just squeeze this little part in there: this song was performed at the Kids Inaugural for Barack Obama! Woo!

And a new feature I will add from now on to my music posts, are ratings! WOO!
I give Miley Cyrus's "The Climb" a: 6.7/10 Not bad, I guess! I wouldn't really give it a 7, but neither a 6.5, so I gave it a 6.7!

F/W 2009 - Yigal Azrouël Brings Back The Cold.

Yigal Azrouel F/W 09 01

The second show of the official F/W 2009, Yigal Azrouel brought back the leaving cold of winter indeed. I personally never heard of this designer - I'm a rookie, hello?! But man, was this collection ever beautiful. I really enjoyed flipping through pics of the show (haha) and was just suprised that I JUST discovered him.

The collection was layered but nicely, not too much. And Yigal showed a whole bunch of capes, and voluminous sleeves, and whatnot in dark, rich colours, heading into a cool gothic-y sort of look. Apparently, that's his sort of 'style' but whatever; style is style, and this guy has good styleee. :)

I see ankle boots are still going strong, and I really like how this was styled black on black on black.

This is why I want to be like a celebrity or something because then I could wear all these nice clothes, man!


The Swell Season

Today is the last day of my long wekend - NOOOOOOO! Ugh, don't you just hate that part? I'm feeling like that lazy blob of laziness again, and I have done NATA homework all weekend! I'm so failing, because I can't do much today, since I left my freaking text book at school! ANNNNNHH! I don't want to do anything. Nope. Ughh, I don't even want to type right noww. If you see me sllurr my words, that means I'm too lazy to lift my fingers.

Yesterday, I watched Nick and Norah's playlist - yay! Uhm, it was sortof minimalistish but I liked it! Me, loving New York City, added to my liking of the film because that''s where it was. Anddd, I ddon't know, I just liked it. And the music. I'm ll about the music. Infactually, I'm looking up the soundtrack right now!

So there you have it! I'm going to go and finish up a few coverages on fashion shows that I've missed on Sat and Sun! See ya! :)

P.S. How was your Valentines Day? I got treatbags! :)

[The Virgins - Teen Lovers]

My, my, my, once again, another music video. WHEN DOES IT END! And now that I realize I'm talking to my self, I say, "IT DOESN'T MWAHAHAHA!" So here is another endless post. This video is called "Teen Lovers" by The Virgins - which is one of my favourite bands everrrrr. Gosh, I love them so much. I also love Metric, but that's irrelevant. The Virgins have been criticized for the absence of depth of life and what not in their lyrics, but I mean, who cares? A person likes what they like, and I not only like them, I love them!! (I always say that, but this time I REALLY mean it). I don't think any other sort of lyrics or more 'mature' videos would suit the band - NOT saying that they are immature er whatever, no, not at all. I'm just saying I like where the band is right now, and if they can build off of where they are, and what they're doing, that's magnifique.

[Imogen Heap - Just For Now]

Once again beating you to it - MAN I'm good! :)
This time around we've got the irreplaceable Imogen Heap, whom I admit, fell in love with on The OC, way back in 2004 and 2005. But thanks not to me, but to Kanye West who posted this video on his blog, bloggers and what not are talking about this song, and stuff. SO hey, I thought I would bring i t you, to my so few followers - hope you like it!

[Jennifer Hudson - If This Isn't Love]

So like I told you, I'm there for you! THERE! RIGHT there. Infront, beside you. I'll beat you to it everytime. Every single time. The latest beat-you-to-it? J Hudson's second single, following the unbelievably nice Spotlight, 'If This Isn't Love'.

Uhm, the song is sort of your average R&B song, slow, hard beats, with the soulful singing added to it, yada yada yada... Do I like it? Ofcourse! Why? Well first of all, I probably wouldn't post a song on here if I didn't like it (hmm, now that I think about it, I should do that more often) and second of all, I'm almost always a sucker for R&B. So there you have it!

[Lady Gaga - Love Games]

You know I'm always there for you with new music veos right? Ok, no you don't still. I have a new one AGAIN for you! This time, it's another Lady Gaga, haha, and it's called "Love Games".

It's a very intriguing song from which I have heard from her album "The Fame" back in the summer. Gosh, I am just loving this girl so much more every single time I see her! The video showcases Gaga kissing another ladyy (here come "oohs" and "aahs" and dont forget *gasp!*)and it just further proves my belief of Gaga being a bisexual. What?! Is this a surprise for you? Well, it shouldn't be. The video is basically her dancing around with a whole bunch of guuys, and her at the end doing the "cameltoe" (at which I was doing at my school's dance today...).
Anyway, lees about the video, more about the song, alright? Mmm, there's not much to say about the song other than, "I Like It!" and then make that queasy smile of yours when you've discovered something new. I would say it's that type of DYNAMITE pop song, you know the kind that becomes uber-popular. It's not really the type of song that would change your life, or whatever, but its definetely a club-banger.


P.S. The video is viciously off sync with sound, but it's all I could find for now! If I somehow find a better version, I'll be sure to change it!

New York Fashion Week: F/W 2009 - Starting...NOW!

AHAA! Sooo, been waiting for this time for a long time (what a funny snetence)! ITS FASHION WEEK AND IT STARTS NOW! [well, actually it started earlier today...] This is my first ever OFFICIAL fashion week I've covered on The Zoot, so I'm really excited. Oh, and that previous post where I spoke about Nathan Jenden, yeah, just forget about that yes? YES! Be prepared for (hopefully) a bea-U-tiful seven days of fashion week coverage! AGAGA!

Anyways, today we had shows from a whole bunch! It oofficialy starts with The Heart Truth's Red Dress Collection, and ends the day tonight with a Venexiana show. But I can only cover so much! I mean it is a long weekend, but I do have homework to be done! So let's start, shall we?

First up, as previously mentioned, The Heart Truth's Red Dress Collection! The includes the likes of Amanda Bynes, Hilary Duff, and Tory Spelling - just to name a few. The show had dresses that were of course red, and sort of 'annhhh.." to me. Nothing really caught my eye, and I just found the whole thing boring. Even seeing celeb faces didn't help the show from going downhill. I don't know, maybe the dresses were just to not my liking, and maybe you actually had to be there to see the dresses for what they really are. But at least the funds go to a good cause!
But as always, there were some stand out dresses, like Katie Couric's dress by Carmen Marc Valvo, Tori Spelling's Betsey Johnson dress, and Valerie Bertinelli's Christian Siriano dress.

[The Pussycat Dolls - BottlePOP!]

Sooo, brand new music videoo coming from my favourite ladiess; THE PUSSYCAT DOLLS! Oh! Wait. Second favourite ladies - girlicious is numba one. So anyways, back to the song. At first I have to say, I was listening to it, and right off the bat, I thought, 'Eugh. I don't really like this song.' But once I was saw the video, I think the song just suddenly had a much greaterimpact on me. I was then like, 'Wow! This song is great!` And it was, sortof. Pretty much. I feel like it makes Nicole AND the group seem really strong and powerful. And personally, I think the original version - the one with Snoop Doggy Dog - is 10X better. YEAAH! Sooo, here`s the video!

P.S. It does get very repetitive - i just realized! Hmm, my likenes of this song should be reconsidered...

[Eh Eh (Nothing ELse I Can Say) - Lady Gaga]

Lady Gaga's FOURTH video installment, yes, fourth is out! :) It's called Eh Eh (Nothing Else I Can Say), and I personally think, it's not one of her strongest songs, though I completely understand that she can't always have upbeat singles. At least she could have put out Brown Eyes, or Again Again! Not this one, no. Hmmm...maybe I'll grow accustomed to it later, but in the meantime, here's her new video!

Oh, and while I'm at it; if you haven't heard Lady Gaga's Poker Face in piano version, then you must here it below! I absolutely love it! :)

And one last thing, because I'm so googoo for Gaga (hehe)! A leak of hers, called No Floods:
