Wicked Wednesday : Is it time to take the “featuring” out of the picture?

by kranARI

I don’t know about you guys but I’m getting a little tired of this whole fad that’s going around lately featuring a young successful singer singing the chorus to a rap song. It all started with JAY Z and Alicia Keys – and don’t get me wrong, it worked. With no disrespect to Goudling (because her talent is undeniable) but has it come to the point where we’re having type casting in music videos as well now? In other words did a music exec go, “Hmmm yes, I think this Ellie Goulding has a decent voice and the looks that we need for this video, let’s ask her if she’s interested!”

These were the videos where I thought it worked well. But maybe it’s time to look for another attraction.

Part of what makes these videos and songs great are the fact that the choruses are absolutely genius and catchy…

It scares me how many hairstyles Rihanna has sported in the past couple of years. Is there such a thing as hair style addiciton?

This is my personal favorite though it’s more of a mash-up than a collaboration/feature.

Moody Monday : Women with an edge

by kranARI

To bring a little bit of a kick into your week, since the weather is certainly not bound to recover till Friday, I give you Edgy Monday. Hopefully this visual material can do what a cup of coffee does for me halfway through the day when my eyelids are failing and my need to climb under the covers grows to a new high. Enjoy my lovelies.
