Rihanna - WAIT YOUR TURN
Katy Perry - THINKING OF YOU
Lady GaGa - BAD ROMANCE
Ciara ft. Missy Elliott - WORK: Fun song, and a really good music video. Too bad her label didn't release it as a single in America. It would have been the only hit off of that wack album.
Janet Jackson - MAKE ME: A good, fun dance track that a simple stripped down video to match. Going back to basics on the track and video really worked for Janet.
Beyoncé - DIVA: I just like the video. That's all.
My Music let-downs just make me so mad when I think about them. Ciara's FANTASY RIDE was NOT that great...or good. Mariah's MEMOIRS OF AN IMPERFECT ANGEL is a good album. The videos were horrible, though. Even though Mariah isn't this huge "video artist" she didn't used to disappoint the way she is lately. And Leona Lewis...WE GET IT! You are a great singer, but you bore me to death! Make something happier, but not a song called "Happy" that is so ballad-like and generic.
As far as good things from this year, I'm super excited about the new healthcare plan President Obama is putting into action. The man is trying people. He can't work miracles. I'd give him a hug if I met him. I think he needs one. I also am glad that the new equality rights thing is being put into action as well. Whether I am for it or not, everyone deserves the right to get married. Who are we to say who can or cannot get married. But I will say I will NOT be surprised if the divorce rate goes up. I have come across many gay men that one day they are head over heals in love, and a week later they were in the cluub and met the penis of their dreams and that guy they were in love with last week..is last week. Its sad, but its a true thing in this community. So people MAKE UP YOUR MIND AND STICK WITH IT! Love is not to be tampered with. Its not a game. Some of us take it seriously..so BACK OFF OF A TAKEN FELLA! Sorry..vented a lil' bit. ;-) This year also some unexpected/shocking passings of some amazing people. The late, great Michael Jackson passed away...the fucking King Of Pop! It still boggles my mind and feels like its not true. But his music shall live on forever. I was jamming to "Wanna Be Startin' Somethin'" with Althea last summer..and now he's gone. Crazy, man. Farrah Fawcett also passed away, an original CHARLIE's ANGEL. Brittany Murphy just passed away almost 2 weeks ago, and that still sounds crazy saying out loud. It just doesn't seem real or make any sense. Then again does someone passing ever make sense?! May they all rest in peace, and everyone else that passed this year. You'll all be missed.
I am really looking forward to the new year. I want to do a lot of change this year. Almost like a life renovation. I've managed to weave out all of the bad seeds in 2009, and whats left are true friends. It pleases me to know that the few people left are those that do care about me, and I cherish these people terribly. I care about them as well and would do what ever I could to be there for them...its kind of an unspoken fact between us. I want to try to do school this year to further my career goals, find a new job in addition to BBW, and get my body healthier..skin, build, etc. I'm not into the gym thing, but I can eat better, and maybe stretch...push-up or something. Haha. I also want to say that my New Years Resolution is to be focused of my future, and STOP biting my nails. UGH! So hard for me..these nails of mine. I need to quit already. I want pretty dominican man nails. Have you seen a dominican man's nails? OMGosh they are so nice! Jealous!
This is ends my 2009 blog. I will miss this year filled with lots of up and downs, but the ups will live on forever in my heart, mind, iPod, and soul. Thank you to everyone that reads my blog, and has subscribed to it. You guys are the fucking best! God bless you all, and I wish you all a very safe, healthy and happy NEW YEAR! AND a GREAT 2010! *hugs* :-)
