Music Feed: The American Music Awards

The American Music Awards aired last night on ABC. The shows red carpet arrivals show also aired last night on E! an hour before the award's telecast. The AMAs which lasted for three hours featured red hot performances, sizzling red carpet ready looks, and a few shocking moments. Check out all you may of missed during last nights AMAs.

Host: Pitbull
Winners: Justin Timberlake, Nelly, Rihanna, Macklemore, Rihanna, Marc Anthony, Taylor Swift, etc.
Performers: R. Kelly, Lady GaGa, TLC, Kendrick Lamar, Justin Timberlake, Christina Aguilera, Miley Cyrus, Jennifer Lopez, Ariana Grande, Rihanna, etc.
Presenters: Ciara, Jennifer Hudson, Sarah Silverman(comedian), etc.
Audience Sightings/Red Carpet Sightings: 2 Chainz, R. Kelly, L.A. Reid, Kelly Osborne, Kendrick Lamar,etc.



The show opened up with host Pitbull paying homage to his hometown of Miami complete with dancers, and some of the raunchy dance moves Miami is known for. After that is when I started changing the channel as I was also watching the newest episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta.

I missed Rihanna when she won her award for R&B/Soul Female because Twitter was on fire when they saw her hairdo. I didn't see her hairdo until her second appearance in the show when she received the first ever ICON Award. The award was presented by her Mother which also led to Mother praising daughter and vice versa. Rihanna capped off her win by performing her monster hit Diamonds from her album Unapologetic.

Justin Timberlake was a multiple winner last night as he swept the Pop/Rock and R&B/Soul categories which wasn't surprising to me, but surprising to everyone else. JT is equally accepted in both genres so it was no surprise there that he was nominated and won in both categories. I think some felt slighted that more Black artists weren't nominated this year. This just goes to show that Black artists need to step their cookies up. JT and Robin Thicke has been ruling the roast too long in my opinion. If that wasn't enough JT performed his single Drink You Away from his latest album.

The performance highlight for me was Jennifer Lopez who paid tribute to Latin diva Celia Cruz. The performance was complete with what I thought was live singing, a rigorous dance sequence, two outfit changes from J-LO, and a standing ovation from the audience.J-LO definitely brought the house down!

Other highlights include: TLC performing Waterfalls with Lil' Mama, Miley Cyrus performing Wrecking Ball with a huge cat in the backdrop, Lady Gaga and R. Kelly performing Do What U Want complete with a Scandal like concept and much more.

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…
