Give It Up, Give It Up – Erotica – Madonna

4 Oct

Erotica is perhaps the pentultimate fall album for me. And that’s saying a lot as there are a lot of them (as you’ll all be exposed to in the coming weeks.) I cannot talk about fall music without mentioning Erotica. It is the unlikely sister album to Simply Streisand. Both evoke such strong memories of my first year of pharmacy school that it is simply impossible to listen to either of them without thinking about that time.

I did a quick search of the blog to see which of the stories of Erotica I have told. I have told most of them. I’ve told of my disilluionment with Madonna around the time of Erotica, how I did not purchase it on the first day of release, how I didn’t really like “Erotica” the song, but eventually, I relented and purchased it on the Friday after its release. It is, quite simply, Madonna at her best. It was always my favorite Madonna record – nothing ever came close until Confessions on a Dance Floor was released. But even having said that, I love Confessions for entirely different reasons. While Confessions was a calculated move aimed at the dance floor, Erotica was Madonna being a mess and self indulgent and being fucking amazing at it.

It is SO Funny, You have to chek this out

Hot Shakira

6 Aug


Since Shakira’s done with her tour, she has been all over the place. She can be seen just hanging out, shopping or out partying with the likes of Penelope Cruz. But this time around, she’s doing something that’s a little more productive by lending her face to endorse Panasonic.

She looks hot in the shots that were taken as a part of a series of commercials for the electronics brand. Is it me or did she get thinner? Not unhealthy thin but more like lean and mean thin. Like I said, she looks hot!

Let’s just hope she doesn’t turn out like her friend Penelope and flaunt it too much.

Wyclef on Lauryn Hill

4 Aug

Don’t expect a Fugees reunion any time soon or at all. A few weeks ago, Pras spoke on what he thought about Lauryn Hill. This time, Wyclef Jean is speaking out about his issues with the soul singer.

Lauryn has been sued, and lost, in the past for failing to give writing credit on her solo album. In the new issue of Scratch magazine, Wyclef rubbed some salt into her wounds.

He says he’s not going to do a Fugees reunion with Lauryn wanting to break the format of how things work. Lauryn thinks that she’s the producer so she can get credit for the work like she did when they did a remix for John Legend. Wyclef claims that Lauryn cannot produce a beat even if given a month to finish it.
