What’s With Those Sexual Commercials Trying To Sell…Jeans or Perfume?

You know how the saying goes ‘sex sells’, but does it really go too far.  Recently, my roomate and I were watching a commericial and it was so sexual that we would have never imagined that it had anything to do with perfume or jeans.  All we said was, “What’s with that?”  I believe that you are still able to sell those products without all the excess sexual content…its soo weird.

Sade Is Back…and It’s About Time

It has been 9 years since the soft singing R&B songstress, Sade released her last album entitled, ‘Lovers Rock’.  And I must say I loved the album so much and since then craved more of her music.  No  one does music like her, and therefore she is a legend in my book.  

If her strategy was to keep her fans on their toes, well it certainly worked.  This time the classy and soulful queen of what I call ‘real love music’ has finally emerged from the ‘wood works’ and has quietly dropped her lastest new album entitled, ‘Soldier of Love’.  What I admire about her songs is how each track tells a unique story about a topic that may not even relate to the song before or after it, but for some reason it just flows.  I just can’t wait to sit, kick back, and listen to her newest album.

Vacation Couldn’t Be Any Cheaper

With the way the economy is currently, I’d say its a good opportunity to take advantage of taking a vacation in a cruise, while the prices are extremely low.  According to www.cruisesonly.com you could save up to 80% on last minute cruises.  Get this: A quick getaway cruise for example to the bahamas for 3 days is as low as $179, and bonus offers include free onboard spending, free stateroom upgrade, reduced booking deposits and more! I guess one could say the current economy has its bad and good sides. So what are you waiting for…you know you need a vacation after you take all those finals!

Rihanna Is Back…With a Dark Side

Rihanna didn’t let the assault with ex-boyfriend Chris Brown, last Feburary get the best of her. With 5 albums under her belt and 29 songs that topped music charts, Rihanna is back and showing her dark side in her new Album entitled,’ Rated R’.  The first track that played on the album was ‘Welcome to the Mad House,’ which was the same song she began her performance with at the 2009 American Music Awards (AMA’s) recently.  In my opinion, the song was really gloomy and dark as with the entire album. I must repeat: It was really dark.  Although Rihanna has had some dark songs in her previous album, ‘Good Girl Gone Bad’ , it was nothing compared to this new one.  I truly hope this is just a phase for her.  Because if it this same gloomy type of music carries on to her next album…hmmm I don’t know if I would still be interested in listening as much.  And are you not wondering?: Whatever happened to the sweet island girl from Barbados?  Take a look at this clip of her back in the day, I know it will bring back memories of the Rihanna the “sweet island girl” we once knew.
