The Weight Loss Divas

Though my friend and fellow blogger Quick has beat me to the punch I'm still compelled to talk about the slew of weight loss driven commercials featuring some of our favorite divas.

First up is Jennifer Hudson..

We've seen her first Weight Watchers commercial to the point of exploitation. I literally got tired of seeing the commercial especially when I watched BET. They would show it every commercial break from any show or movie I was watching on the network. Yes! We are all proud of Jennifer but others digress. They feel the Oscar award winning actress has lost too much weight. I think she looks fine! I do feel that she doesn't need to lose any more weight. It's almost like she's disappearing in front of our very eyes.

Now Jennifer finally has a new Weight Watchers commercial featuring her old self during her run on FOX's "American Idol". It's a huge difference; pun intended when the new thin Jennifer comes out and sings alongside her old self to Whitney Houston's "I Believe In You & Me".

Weight Loss Facts: Reportedly Jennifer went from a size 16 to a size 4. Wowzers!

Not one to be outdone Mariah Carey has shed the baby pounds and then some for her new Jenny Craig commercial. The clip features Mariah unveiling her new shapely feature while her hit single; "Make It Happen" plays in the background. I will say Mariah looks damn good but its certainly not the skinniest we've seen her.

Weight Loss Facts: Mariah lost either 30 or 40lbs after giving birth and an additional 30 or 40lbs or vice versa. Anyway Mariah's total weight loss is said to be 70lbs.

If you thought Mariah Carey endorsing Jenny Craig was shocking; her peer Janet Jackson endorsing Nutrisystem is just as shocking if not more. Yes! We have seen Janet battle her weight throughout the years most notably a few years back. Obviously her weight woes are still a constant battle which made the Nutrisystem endorsement a go. I guess when you feel like you tried everything; there's always some alternative that you haven't. How Janet has lost and kept her weight over the years have all been debated. Janet did publish a book; "True You" about her weight loss over the years. I haven't been fortunate enough to read it yet but maybe one of these days I might read it.

Weight Loss Facts: At presstime how much weight Janet has lost has not been revealed as far as I know.

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…
