[WGO] Happy New Day

  • I'm sure you've heard by now, but if not -- California has officially overturned Prop 8 which called for gay marriage to be illegal. One battle down in a long war -- but it's definitely an important one. In honor of this momentous occasion, I encourage you to grab your gays and go party -- blaring this very loud.
  • We finally have a tangible first single for the boys in NLT 2.0 Menudo 2.0 One Call. The song is called "Blacklight" and it's set to be premiered on an episode of the runaway ABC Family hit teen dramaedy "Pretty Little Liars" on August 10th...
  • Justin Bieber somehow wrangled a huuuuuge feature spread in this week's New York Magazine. I'm so very very confused.
  • While Katy Perry's still on top with "California Gurls", her second single off the Teenage Dream sophomore set (same name) is on pace to possibly overtake it. This is a very good thing, as "Teenage Dream" is leaps and bounds better than "Gurls", and...I hesitate to say it, but...I really, really like it. More on that to come. Also on the upward swing at Pop Radio -- Bruno Mars' "Just the Way You Are". It's almost tripled its airplay in just one short week to land at #29. (It also bears mentioning that Kelly Rowland's "Rose Colored Glasses" rears its head at #48. It's no "Commander" but I'll take what I can get with that project.)
  • Lady Gaga has gained herself a record breaking 13 nominations for this year's MTV Video Music Awards (clearly to make up for being snubbed out last year). In a related story, Christina Aguilera, Rihanna and Britney Spears fans have taken to Twitter to stage an elaborate, bitter and quite laughable "boycott" of the show's televised airing due to the three being snubbed. Hate to be the Bitter Betty of Devil's Advocate Lane, but Xtina released nothing in 2009, Brit hasn't really either, and Rihanna still managed a nomination for "Rude Boy" despite having a stinker of a "dark" concept album. MTV doesn't even really air videos anymore! Stop your bitching like this show still matters more beyond gossip-mongering and performances. I don't recall rumors of a Grammy Boycot -- at least Grammy's actually mean something (or at least they should). Go cry in your milk, please, and stay off my Twitter timeline.
  • With that said, a trailer for Xtina's Burlesque film (also starring Cher) has finally found the light of day, if you're clever.

Yay! I want to go to California now and remarry Darren on american soil :) And yay to the new boyband. I do quite like Pretty Little liars though it is more drama than comedy so I shall be sure to look out for their single. BTW I saw a new irish boyband on facebook whose promo shots were them in handcufffs. How weird.

I love Shake Them Haters Off by kelly. It's very amazing. haven't heard rose coloured glasses yet, but i am besotted with Haters - i may love it more than Commander. Eep!
