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!

Just a Dream

The Country Grammar king is BACK with a brand new track y'all!

Nelly has just come out with a hot new single titled "Just a Dream" and it's off the hizzle for shizzle. He's more sentimental than his usual hit song ("Hot in Herre" anyone?). I've got a feeling that this song is gonna be playing on a lot of radio stations in the near future... check it!

Only Girl in the World

I love the non-emo-I-love-dance-and-house Rihanna!

Now THIS is a great song to have fun too! It brings Rihanna (and me) back to her (our) "Please Don't Stop the Music" days. Besides "Rude Boy", this has got to be the best song on her new album "Last Girl on Earth" album. It makes me just want to run to the clubs and get CRAZY!

Britney Spears "Radiance" Perfume Commerical

Just like her weekly E News Hollywood stories, Britney's commercials are getting weirder and weirder.

I mean, I love the girl, but a fortune teller asking her to tell her future and Britney merely replies "No thanks, I choose my own destiny"? Super original. I think now this is Britney's fourth perfume, and how I hope it is more successful in getting people to buy the perfume instead of getting the attention of their target audience with this sub-par commercial!

(Sorry Brit Brit, I still love you!!)

T.I. in Jail... AGAIN!?

Quite the appropriate picture, eh?

Yup, the "Whatever you like" rapper T.I. is getting thrown back in jail just after his recent release for having drugs and weapon charges. Now he's being dragged back to court for possession of marijuana (and his wife) who were smoking it in his car. His bail was worth $10,000, but he will appear in court on Friday. I guess it's no more stacks on deck and Patron on ice for you, buckwheat!
