Beyoncé big winner at Video Music Awards and Alicia Keys claps back at haters

Beyoncé big winner
So I am a day late on my recap of the Video Music Awards. I didn't watch the telecast and nowadays you don't have to because most, if not all performances become readily available on social media and YouTube. There were many highlights as well as shocking moments,typical of all award shows these days. I took the liberty to cover some of the moments. Check it out! 
  • Beyoncé was one of the big winners at the Video Music Awards. She now holds the record for the most awarded female surpassing Madonna. Beyoncé graced the red carpet with her daughter, Blue Ivy in tow. Jay-Z was noticeably absent. I'm not sure if that's a good thing or bad thing. I do notice when Beyoncé does attend award shows without Jay-Z, she seems more gracious and personable as opposed to when she is with him, she comes off as rather icy and cold, just my opinion. She also performed several songs from her "Lemonade" album.
  • People were criticizing Alicia Keys for not wearing any makeup at the Video Music Awards. Ever since Alicia got her skin clear thanks to Proactiv, she's been showing off her makeup free face and she looks good. Well Alicia clapped back with a nice nasty message to all the haters. Alicia says she's not anti-makeup but she is simply embracing her natural beauty. 
  • Rihanna brought the house down with several performances of her classic hits and an ode from Drake who presented her with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard award. 
  • Britney Spears performed her new single, "Make Me" with G-Eazy(sp) who many think she is dating but nothing has been confirmed. 
  • Kanye West premiered his new video for "Fade" which featured Teyana Taylor channeling her inner "Flashdance" and "The Pleasure Principle". 
  • Future performed "Fuck Up Some Commas". Other appearances include Meek Mill, Nicki Minaj, Remy Ma, Fat Joe, 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…
