The Brit Awards 2010 Nominees!

So updating a little later than expected, I know have the list of nominees for each category of The Brit Awards 2010. I am actually looking forward to them this year and hope they have some great performers. The performance list has yet to be announced, but as soon as it becomes available I will be sure to post about it. But moving on, to the nominations...

Album Review: Rihanna - Rated R

Today I am going to be reviewing Rihanna's "Rated R" album. I said that I would be featuring a few reviews, so this is my second review so far. Definitely expect to see more, and if there are any albums you would like me to review, leave a message in the chat box and I will tell you if it is possible or not. I know that this album has been out to buy for a few months but updates are as slow as ever and I think it would be best to get some album reviews in before I am bombarded with updates.
So, moving on...
This is Rihanna's fourth studio album, and is completely different to the other material that she has produced.
The producers who she worked with for this album include; Chase & Status, The-Dream, StarGate - to name but a few. It has already spawned two singles, and her next single "Rude Boy" is expecting a release in February 2010.
This album is a complete change of direction and takes on a much darker side of Rihanna. I believe this is to do with the complications that she had with Chris Brown last year. But don't let that affect you, as I haven't even got onto whether this album is worth checking out or not.
On to the track by track review...

The Brit Awards 2010 Nominations Launch Tonight!

So as some of you may know (or may not know) I come from the UK, so therefore it is right for me to post about the Brit Awards 2010 Nominations. Tonight, I won tickets to go to this but unfortunately I am not able to go. Pixie Lott, Ellie Goulding and La Roux are to perform tonight along with the nominations for the Brits 2010 being announced.
I will be keeping up to date with the announcement and as soon as I know who is nominated I am sure to be writing a post on it to let you all know and to give my views on who I think should pick up each award.
So stay tuned, and from 8pm GMT tonight I will know who has been nominated and will begin to write my post.

Lady Gaga Cancels More Concert Dates...

I did not post the news of Lady Gaga collapsing during her concert last week. But I am going to post about it now, followed by extra information that has arose today. Last week, Lady Gaga was supposed to perform in Indiana, but minutes before going on stage she was advised not to go on stage by her doctor. News came that she was suffering from exhaustion, so this is why the show was cancelled. It was later rescheduled to a later date.
Today it has emerged that Lady Gaga has cancelled more of her concert dates for her "Monster Ball" tour. This includes the concert she was supposed to be performing tonight. These shows are expected to be rescheduled, but no news has been given on them yet.
Here is the full official message from her website:

Request: Ke$ha - Animal Previews

Someone has requested that they would like to hear some songs from Ke$ha's debut album "Animal". I have chosen a few of them, which I will stream below. If you would like to download them, leave a message in the comment area or the chat box and I will post download links later as I haven't got time now.


"Tik Tok"

"Take It Off"


Enjoy :)
