This Boy This Girl

...aka Miley Cyrus and Iyaz! I think this is either her best or second best song release (next to Party in the U.S.A.). It's definitely another step away from the innocent Hannah Montana character she plays on Disney. I like!

Who's That Chick

Yes, it seems to me that Rihanna has been riding the 'house' trend and has been hanging out a lot with French DJ David Guetta. But who's to blame? At the rate that she is producing these awesome dance tracks, it's no longer that she's stuck on the house train! "Who's That Chick" is yet another great song after "Only Girl" to dance to!

Chris Brown Brings Back "Yeah x3"

Chris Brown is BACK in action... and this time he brought David Guetta along to help him.

It's kinda bittersweet; I mean with everything that went down with him and Rihanna, he clearly has had a hard time with a comeback. Maybe this song will do it? It's actually a great song to groove to, but will that be enough to win his fans (and the rest of the music world back)? Tell me what you think!

Kanye West: Here's a Toast & Power

"Let’s have a toast for the douchebags
Let’s have a toast for the assholes
Let’s have a toast for the scumbags
Every one of them that I know
Let’s have a toast for the jerkoffs that never take work off
Baby I got a plan, run away as fast as you can”

"Here's a Toast" is kind of a weird song, but I guess Kanye West wanted to show the world that he can make fun of himself? The beat of the song is definitely a different one, but I think I dig it... I think. At least he can raise a toast to himself... he would be selfish like that. OK OK I'm sorry that was mean, but I thought I should stick up for Taylor Swift...

I DO, however, like his song "Power," although it at times reminds me of "Jesus Walks." I think he shows off his genius in this song, which kind of takes you away from all of the sh*t that has surrounded him for a while. I guess it's like a Chris Brown case: can we just listen to his music anymore without thinking about the b.s. that he may have said or done?

Video of the Year at VMAs

Lady Gaga takes home not one, but TWO VMAs this past Sunday for Best Pop Video of the Year and Best Female Video for "Bad Romance"! Gaga also revealed (among her numerous wardrobe changes, ranging from Alexander McQueen and, ahem... a dress made out of meat...), that her new album to be released is titled "Born this Way" and even sang a little snippet of her new single... geez that girl can sing!

Best New Artist at VMAs

And our little Canadian takes the cake! Justin Bieber won the Best New Artist award at the VMAs on Sunday night! So proud :) And I am so happy I am going to school in the U.S.A. now since I got the chance to vote for him!

Best Hip Hop Video at VMA

Eminem wins the award for Best Hip Hop Video at the VMAs Sunday night for his hit single "Not Afraid". Mr. Slim Shady had a stellar performance of his song, followed by his duet with a red-haired Rihanna for "Love the Way you Lie." He also beat out Jigga's (aka Jay's) "On to the Next One", which I guess wasn't that popular, but I still love him more than Eminem... as of now. Oh well, congrats Eminem! I think you deserved it this round... and I hope to see you get as good as you were in your Encore days!
