GREEN DAY‘s American Idiot was definitely my depression album. Everyone has one of those during the developmental stages of life, I know its cheesy you don’t have to tell me twice! I don’t know what this whole alternative stuff they are talking about is? I mean what can you do after Madonna, Manson, Howard Stern? Is anything really ‘alternative’ anymore? I love the vibe even though they look like washed up twinks -what can I say they make a boys night! Dunno if i can say much about the performance, I could definitely hear them better in my earphones, love the rain of fire and the guitar breaking but GAGA did it already, didnt you guys get the memo? - JAKE
At the beginning of LADY GAGA‘s performance at the American Music Awards it seemed that she was going for a boring exact copy of the dance-routine-in-the-video performance of smash hit BAD ROMANCE. As my attention began to move elsewhere, she blasted out with those pipes – smashed some glass and toned down the evening with a burning piano rendition of Speechless, a track off the slickest pop album to be released all year, The Fame Monster. I’m eagerly awaiting her next performance, and the tour. Very disappointing she did not win anything this year. Smash that glass! - Matt
MARY J. BLIGE is one of those phenomenal artists that just gets up on stage and makes it look easy – every time – delivering over and over again! I love how she really tells the story of her songs with her performance and sings like she means it – with unparalleled passion. I’ve just heard recently heard her latest track I AM from the PRECIOUS soundtrack (amazing movie that I just saw today) and I’m really feeling it! Mary’s next release STRONGER WITH EACH TEAR is another album that I’m looking forward to! – Camille
First off I think ADAM LAMBERT lost weight!, second off can I say those horse-people are Confessions Tour rip offs? He reminded me of Journey soundwise, i must say i can’t be hatin’ too much. The performance was rad, the moves slick. I especialy loved the ample body dragging and did he just make out with a boy? Oy vey! The ending note was off the hook!
Adam has always been a oddity ever since his arrival in the pop music scene, shocking teens than winning admiration of artists and finally begrudgingly finding places in Americas hearts. I hope this is a beginning of a new era in pop music, one where male can actually bring true rocking quality to their music. Check out his debut – For Your Entertainment. - JAKE
Hot damn JENNIFER LOPEZ has landed again…or was that a fall?! This years performance American Music Awards featured a LOUBOUTINS-less Lola killin’ it in a sexy boxing outfit. The track itself isn’t half bad, first time I listened to it I wasn’t impressed. Jenny is back on the block! Check out Amazon to brush up on your Lola! - Matt
