Lauryn Hill is set to make a Comeback

So I finally just bought Lauryn's first solo album at the record store not realizing that is was on sale for a reason. According to various blogs sites, Lauryn Hill has recorded new material and it expected to release later this year. However, I'm finding it hard to believe she'll be releasing new music this year due to the fact that the year is half over. Lauryn Hill blew up the music industry the last time she was on the scene in 98', so isn't more time needed to put the buzz out there? And why did Lauryn and comp. wait until now to anounce her long awaited comeback?

Any way the emotional ubran stylings of 'The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill' still most definately stand as the Holy Grail of Hip hop. It is going to be interesting to see what Lauryn comes up with on this album which was recorded during a ten year process. Hopefully she will be able to save music from the state it's in right now.
'Hip Hop started out in the heart, now everybody tryna chart!'

Fave Five: Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill, Ex Factor, When it Hurts So bad, To Zion, Sweetest Thing

The Diet Commercial

After a long day furiously waiting for my little brother to graduate middle school, I settled down at a restuarante and ordered a meal soo delish that i had to blog about it. The chicken ceaser salad. I don't know if it was the heat or being cornered by an insane and a sane grandmother, but that food was good. I even took a picture of it. It looks and taste better in real life.
With a side of cranberry juice, I was on cloud nine liberated from all the things that were pulling me down. As if cranberry juice was nature's red wine. That's when it hit me. I was eating healthy. While my insane grandmother (who i love btw) was devouring the chicken fingers she didn't want , eating something less greasy a but equally tasty.
like a diet commercial, one good choice lead to another. After the next few days I have been putting do the grease and researching healthy food. Although I have a high metabolism, I had to be sure to stay as healthy as I can . It is interesting to see the results of people getting older and how one decision can lead to many decisions in their life. Are all the decisions we make as important as the life that we live?

Robyn 'Body Talk's' Various Elements of Pop Music

The previously released eight track LP is Robyn's first album of new material in five years and it was well worth the wait. Body Talk Pt.1 is a fun creative disc on the inside and out. With the Cd itself resembling a demo tape and the first track entitled 'Don;t F***ing Tell Me What Do', Robyn was sure not to share any type of boredom to audiences.

On the record Robyn explores the many different types of Pop Music. She even fuses Pop music with other dancey genres. The track "Dancehall Queen" surely amplifies the fun crossover between robyn style pop music and dancehall records. The record "Cry When You Get Older" is a Heavy synth record where Robyn sings about the complications of love. The record is very edgy and is an instant Robyn classic (Like Be Mine!). "Hold up a second, now i got something on my dirty mind." Robyn sings on the first verse. Robyn slows things down on Body Talk with "Hang With Me (acoustic Version)'. An emotional record that shows the versatility of Robyn's music. Robyn sings accompanied by violins and a piano.

It is simply understood why Robyn couldn't hold on to the tracks any longer. According to the swedish magazine, Bon, Robyn stated that she did not want to wait with a release until they where all recorded and decided to release them as a set. Body Talk Pt.1 is only the opening to what the Body Talk series has in store. Body Talk will see a part two and three later on this year.

Fave Five: Dancing On My Own, Hang With Me, Dancehall Queen, Cry When You Get Older, Fembot

'I'm an Alien from Outer Space......'

It's true, I am not the typical jersey kid one would see on the street, especially south jersey xp. I am a very odd yet creative person through fashion, film, music, and writing. I spend most of my time as an overwhelmed college student but on the down side, I am very observant. People on this planet called Earth are very weird creatures. The varied personalities, unsettling disputes, judgemental opinions serve as only some of the far from beautiful qualities in human nature. However, like in every fairy tale, where ever there's ugly; there is beauty. As an observer, I going to expose, the beautiful, the ugly, and everything in between. Because thats just how life is beautiful, ugly, and in between. and always remember people don't change. They are just the same person with the same attitudes in a different world. a world where they must ADJUST and that's as real as it gets................................
