I feel like a Monster…Monster’s are taking over

June 2, 2010 at 7:35 pm (music, pop culture) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

I was listening to Rihanna Distubia today and that line “I feel like a monster,” made me think. There has been a lot of monsters mentioned in music lately and the talk of monsters always reminds of that send in the Little Mermaid and all the poor unfortunate souls.  Does listening to music about monsters or being called a little monster make you think of those green things grabbing for anything they can hold on to or make you feel like them? Or is it just me?

Anyways besides Disturbia, there’s Monster by Lady Gaga on the Fame Monster and all all her fans are Little Monsters. Then Neyo just did a song called Beautiful monster. And I would say that’s a lot of monsters in pop music right now.

Then there’s the appearance of the Big Bad Wolf in Monster and Taio Cruz Break your Heart, would you say they were the same? But that’s another matter.

The Apocalypse on Tour!

April 21, 2010 at 11:03 pm (music, pop culture, Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

The snowacalpse,  snowmeggedon, earthquakes, and that one particular volcano’ s probably got a lot of people thinking its the end of the world.  Movies like 2012 and the growing fear people in the US are showing towards the government aren’t helping matters.  At least we’re no longer having a financial meltdown and the economy’s supposedly getting better.  2010 has been particularly busy.

But I’m not going to talk about those things anymore. Lady Gaga’s Monster Ball tour and Rihanna’s Last Girl on Earth Tour both herald the end.  Not to start any new conspiracy theories.  There are enough of those flying around.  But does this pic of Gaga remind you of something quite scary or is it just me? She’s even got horns on that mask. Gaga had her little monster’s making apocalyptic videos for the first leg of her tour.  Here’s one particularly good one:

The second leg may not be the apocalypse anymore, but it still has monsters. I’m looking forward to the Monster Ball.

As for Rihanna her whole gig seems to be the end, last girl on earth. How could that not be the end.  And with songs like Fire Bomb, Hard, and Mad House you’d think the whole world’s gone to pieces and only crazy, tough people remain. I’m curious how she’s got her concert planned out. And with Ke$ha opening I know she’s going to have a wild crowd. Too bad Nicki Minaj’s not doing the tour that would have been even more crazy.  People are going to be hype coming out of the show.

Anyone going to the Monster Ball or Last Girl on Earth Tour? And what do you think about all this about the apocalypse?

Lady Blah Blah no Gaga

January 16, 2010 at 11:42 pm (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , , , , )

I’m offended Sarah Palin’s being compared to Lady Gaga even on the DL.  What did Gaga do to deserve such a slight?  Seriously the New York Times Op Ed compares the two directly.

Lady Blah Blah is obviously a play on Lady Gaga.  Of Palin  “And, she has one of the best poker faces in the game —” and that “She continues to command the spotlight while they dance in the dark.” and “this fame monster who seems to have the stamina to endure until the end.”

It’s really kind of funny.  This Gaga language really gets to the base of Sarah Palin.  She is a fame monster.

Sadly I thought that Palin was going to be on Oprah the same day as Lady Gaga and James Cameron.  I would have loved to have seen Palin’s face at seeing Gaga’s fans  little monsters seeing that a little went to the show in costume.  Could you image?

Magic Date November 23rd

November 20, 2009 at 12:07 pm (music) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

What’s up with releasing all these albums on the same day? I know they’re trying to jump start the holiday season and this is a good time to release albums, but seriously all on the same day?

Shakira She Wolf    I liked the song She Wolf whether other people liked it or not I can’t say.

Lady Gaga   Fame Monster    Listen to the dark side of fame.  Some of the songs are scary so watch out, but they’re all addictive.

Beyonce     Iam…Yours  Live album   Beyonce’s first live album and she’s got pipes that are shown off live.

Adam Lambert  For Your Entertainment   Glam

Rihanna     Rated R        Was this written for Chris Brown? Some of it is kind of it is frightening and sounds really rough.

Susan Boyle   I Dreamed a Dream   She can sing for real.

Kenny G     Holiday Album     Yes he’s releasing an album

And it looks like Britney Spears was a little off with release of her singles collection.

Are you planning to buy one of the many albums released on November 23rd?  In person or on itunes? Or are you just into singles?  Personally I’m getting the fame monster.  I haven’t figured out if I’m getting the version with the fame attached or not.  I’m buying the actual physical CD  because I want the cover.

A Monster Bad Romance Vid

November 10, 2009 at 2:08 pm (anime, art, fashion, music) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

 

I wonder if Lady gaga watches much anime or if this is a coincidence.  The cross in the monster as part of the title font and the big anime eyes in the  music video. They were so freaky.  I thought they came out in the beginning like they’re vampires or creatures born of the abyss. 

Also in the vid there’s the attack of the Alexander Mcqueen monster.  She had premiered Bad Romance at the Alexander Mcqueen show so I guess that’s understandable.  And that polar bear dress was fierce.  There’s also a bit of East European feel to it to go along with that Russian sound that she uses in the song.  The only thing I thought was really scary was that cat.  I don’t know why but it freaked me out.

 And the end is a surprise so if you haven’t seen it I won’t spoil it where strangely she looks like Amy Winehouse. I love the vid.  What do you think?

Collector’s Fame Monster Edition Scary!

October 30, 2009 at 11:40 pm (music) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Lady Gaga Announces Track List & Collector's Edition Art Book of THE FAME MONSTER

Lady Gaga has announced that she will release a collector’s edition art book of The Fame Monster to be released December 15. Everything included in the Fame Monster’s collector edition makes sense except for the lock of hair. It includes a collectable puzzle, posters, tons of pics and even paper dolls.  Why would someone need a lock of Lady Gaga’s hair! That’s so creepy! Eww.  And how big of a lock could it be anyways?  I mean she’s only got so much hair.  Maybe its from her extensions or something, but still!  What are people supposed to do with it? Smell it?  And isn’t only the really creepy fans who want locks of hair? I guess if you’re eaten by the fame monster creepy is what creepy does.

What do you think? Creepy or not?
