Cher Lloyd’s debut single has mysteriously leaked all over t’internet. ‘Swagger Jagger’ is due for release this August but you can have a listen here amongst other places. The cynic in me doubts how accidental all of this is, but Cher does seem pretty miffed about it. In the last hour she has tweeted:
“I’ve never been this upset ever!”
“i worked so hard, and people wanna ruin it for me, if you wanted to hurt me you’ve done a great job”
“please don’t do this to me. i wish i was at home with my family, i’ve been through enough this year”
Hmmmm….. Publicity plan? Ragin’ for her if it’s not.
Anyway, whatcha reckon?
I am shocked and aghast! Turns out, Rebecca Black was but a charlatan! The true queen of tweeny parent-paid-for pop is surely Jenna Rose? ‘My Jeans’ was around a long time before ‘Friday‘. Like OMG Rebecca! You’re like totes jockin’ Jenna’s swagger! Ridic!… Jenna is already on her second “song”. Here she brings us the musical stylings of ‘O.M.G.’ and a little pre-teen-peedo-porn video to go with it. Ahh how cute…
OMG is right love!
New Britney video/Sony advert.
My distain for all things Diana Vickers is no secret at this stage. But I shall no longer wait on hold to The Samaritans for somebody to listen to my hurt. This vidjo soothes my blackened soul. It tells me I am not alone in the world…others feel my (throbbing ear) pain. Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall - all I gotta to is call. And it’ll be there..yes it will. I’ve got a friend!
….Sorry did I just accidently copy a song there? Imagine that…..
This year’s attempt at beating X Factor’s winner to Christmas no. 1 is a liiiittle quieter than last year’s. In 2009 Rage Against the machine’s ‘Killing in the name of’ beat poor little Joe Mack-el-daree to the no. 1 spot and the plan to make John Cage’s classical piece ‘4′33”, which is entirely silent, the next Christmas no. 1 is being ‘orchestrated’ (har-har) by the same revolutionaries.
The Facebook group already has over 22,000 fans. Join it here, if you’re so inclined.
Some of my favourite comments so far:
“It’s just a rip-off of Stephen Hawking - Unplugged”
“Have you ever played it backwards? I’m sure there’s a message in it”
“There should be a novelty version where Noddy Holder shouts “IT’S CHRRRIIIISSSTMAAAS!!” right in the middle”
“Silent Night for the B-side?”
“Yeah I love this tune. Bet if it’s Christmas No. 1 they’ll only play the radio edit (4′27”)”
“I love the bit where the trumpets don’t come in”
“Wanna use this as my ringtone”
What do you reckon? Have they made their point? Should we keep pushing until the traditional race for Christmas no. 1 is reinstalled? Stupid considering that it’s the public who buy the X Factor single so we’re battling against ourselves? The ultimate passive-aggressive stance against the commercialisation of music? A load of c*ck?
Talk to meeeee!!!!
There always comes point with a reality TV show where I go from ‘just watching it because there’s nothing else on’ to…..INVESTED!! That moment came on Sunday night when I cried unashamedly in front of a room full of friends during Matt the painter and decorator Cardle (official name)’s performance on X Factor. Would I?! Sweet mother of jayzus, would I what!
Then there’s Gamu Nhengu who I thought was just cute and sorta original until she dropped the vocal BOMB on us this week. Herro? Deadly biscuits!
Mary Byrne…who’s first audition still destroys me!!!… I LOVE YOU MARY!!!!
And not forgetting Mini-Cheryl AKA Cher Lloyd….
I’ll leave you with this, a version of Sade’s ‘By your side’ that I found on youtube by one of my other favourite’s Marlon McKenzie….who would also get it btw.
So talk to me…who manages to scrape your attention away for Dermot O’Ridey for a few minutes?
eh..I know she’s a child n’ all but..I kind of FRICKIN LOVE this song!!!
Here it is, Nadine Coyle’s long awaited (yeah not really) solo single ‘Unsustainable’ …or something. There’s only one thing more annoying than her singing voice…and here it is…
AAAAGGGGHHHHHHH!!!! SOMEBODY HELP ME RIP MY EARS OFF MY HEAD!!!
So it is true!! I was NOT expecting that. Makes sense though, Robbie’s career wasn’t exactly on fire and I guess Take That, like any other band, have to keep shaking things up to stay current. (Mmmm current…I’d love a scone..haven’t had breakfast yet) Particularly after Marky Owen’s morto!!-fication stations earlier this year. Who’d a thunk it eh? Little innocent head on him! ….Why I oughta.
I was always an East 17er growing up and despite a lingering love for the East-end Cream Crackers I’m a big enough person to admit that I was wrong. So here it is on record for the first and last time….. Take That were better. FACT. Looking forward to seeing what they come up with avec Robbie I must say. But I’ll never believe Gary Barlow has anything but pure unadulterated hatred for him! Sorry!
You’ve probably heard these by now - but just in case! Here’s Mel and his many INSANE!! phone calls. Some people are saying that these are totally set up, that her responses are not natural and dubbed in afterwards blah blah blah….Meh - I dunno.
His breathing thing halfway through some of the calls freaks me the hell out. It’s not in any way natural, it’s totally bizarre. It’s like he’s playing ‘angry angry’ actor and heavy breathing shows ‘the anger’ or something weird and arty and odd like that. In fact - all of his rants are a bit ‘trying out for a part’ to me. I think the boy has lost his ever-lubbin mind.
Hear the rest of them after the jump!

Oh I am so glad Katie Price chose an elegant medley of Andy Williams and Burt Bacharach for her first single. Her cover reflects the glamour and timeless chic of this new tune. I also enjoy how much it is about the future, and not dredging up her past. Kudos!
Yeah. I lie. It’s sh*t. It’s about Pete. She looks like she has lips made from hemorrhoids on the cover.
You know the youngwan from Precious, Gabourney sidibe? Well her Mam only went and tried out for America’s Got Talent! Scarleh for Gabourney right?……WRONG!
GO ON YE GOOD THING ALICE TAN RIDLEY!!!
Blasphemy, nudity and ridin’! The way pop videos should be!
Katie Price is about to release her fist solo single. Single as in song…..as in SINGING! AAAAAAAAAGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! She’s all about the….. “I can at last reveal my first solo single is out Monday 12 July. I love the tune and hope you guys do too xxx”
Call your local TD, the police, fire service, ambulance, your mother, the Lifeboats, Childline, the ISPCC, Amnesty, Santa, Unicef, IMRO, SIPTU, KFC, JLS, ….surely somebody can help??!! Let’s remind ourselves why this is NOT a good idea……
If anyone needs me I’ll be in the hills.
No, this isn’t some video saying ‘ha ha-zers, look at funny Chinese kid pronouncing Mariah Carey lyrics completely wrong’ - when in fact, those videos should come with a whole big follow up saying ‘BUT HIS FECKIN’ PRONUNCIATION IS 143 MILLION TIMES BETTER THAN ME SINGING IN CHINESE’…anyways Lin Yu Chin is Taiwanese, and he’s epic. He actually does sound a LOT like Whitney Houston, when Whitney Houston could sing.
