American Music Awards Recap

...well sort of. I watched the first hour or so of the 2011 AMA's before I got sucked into "The Real Housewives Of Atlanta". Hey! I can't help it. I'm sucker for the show and reality TV period. If you missed the show; I'm providing you all with a little recap. Mind you I didn't watch the entire show but bits and pieces. So here you go:

Nicki Minaj opened the show doing a medley of her hit songs including one with David Guetta which I don't know the title of. She also did "Super Bass" but by the time she performed that she was exhausted and out of breath. You can tell that Nicki Minaj still needs to work on her stage presence. The entire time I couldn't help but think of how much Nicki Minaj's performance reminded me of Rihanna. It was more so her vocals though that reminded me of her Rihanna than the performance.

Jennifer Lopez performed a medley of her hits as well including; "Papi" which included quite the dance number. She also went into "On The Floor" and brought out guest Pitbull who also appeared with J-LO's ex; Marc Anthony; how awkward! On top of that J-LO performed alongside will.i.am and Mick Jagger(who appeared via satellite) for the single; "T.H.E.".

Nicki Minaj won the award for "Favorite Rap/Hip Hop Artist" beating out Lil' Wayne and Kanye West. Taylor Swift won "Artist Of The Year". Kelly Clarkson didn't look very flattering in her red number but I like Kelly Clarkson; not so much her music though. Christina Aguilera performed with Maroon 5 for their #1 hit single; "Moves Like Jagger". Chris Brown performed; "All Back" before going into a dance number for another song(I can't think of the song). The performance wasn't as typical as I expected.

Rihanna won for "Best R&B/Soul Album" for "Loud". Really? Beyonce won for "Favorite R&B/Soul Female". LMFAO closed out the show and it got so weird that I just turned it. Mind you I was flipping back and forth throughout the two and half hour telecast so I didn't catch every moment.

Presenters included: Jennifer Hudson, Queen Latifah, Taio Cruz, Lionel Richie, etc.

Performers: Maroon 5, Christina Aguilera, Ludacris, Enrique Iglesias(sp), Chris Brown, Nicki Minaj, Lil' Jon, Pitbull, Marc Anthony, J-LO, etc.

Album Spotlight: Ne-Yo - In My Own Words

It's probably starting to look like a Ne-Yo fan site here with all the recent posts mentioning him; but I assure you it is not. The hype behind Ne-Yo's debut album; "In My Own Words" reached a fever pitch thanks to the debut single; "So Sick". The song was a huge success including its singles; "Sexy Love", "When Ur Mad" and more.

Ne-Yo definitely plays up on his buzz by writing and producing many of the tracks. This album would lead to Ne-Yo being a very sought after songwriter and producer. It is the album of his I favor the most. I think as he progressed as an artist; I somewhat lost interest.

*UPDATED* Music Feed: Janet Jackson's Most Sexualized Songs: REVISITED

You all, my readers, my visitors; my supporters; you have made this post one of the most successful posts on my blog. I kept wondering what it was about this post, that made it so successful; one word: JANET! The fact that Janet has new music on the way makes this post even more of a hot topic. As its been said before, no one sings about sex quite like Janet Jackson. Her songs, ooze with the right amount of sexuality perfect for a night of steamy sex. Take a look back at a number of songs Janet is responsible for delivering her in trademark breathy delivery. I took the liberty of adding a few other songs that didn't make the list before. 

"Warmth"
This song begins with echos of Janet saying "...in my mouth". By then you should already know what this song is about. Janet sings about the "warmth" of her mouth and how she pleases her lover; Jermaine Dupri at the time. This is a very sensual song and it is one of the most explicit Janet has ever recorded …

Album Spotlight: Beyonce - Dangerously In Love

If you were in love in 2003, it wasn't official unless you were living "Dangerously In Love". It was the title of Beyonce's 2003 breakthrough solo album which spawned the singles, "Crazy In Love" featuring Jay-Z, "Baby Boy" featuring Sean Paul, "Me, Myself, and I", and the title track. The album would serve as a precursor of what was to come from this bonafide superstar. Unlike her later albums, "Dangerously" was deep-rooted in southern soul and R&B melodies. This album also showed a more gentler, sultry, and relaxed(voice wise) Beyonce. As opposed to the last few years her style has been more abrasive and in your face. Never one to be outdone, Beyonce was set to release a follow-up to this album titled, "Dangerously In Love 2" featuring unreleased songs but it didn't happen. From the seductive "Speechless" to the cautionary tale of "Me, Myself, and I", "Dangerously In Love" is m…
