This is Tale of the Sea Maid by Leaves' Eyes. They are a Norwegian/German gothic metal band. The current members are lead singer Liv Kristine, her husband Alexander Krull  who is also a vocalist,  guitarists Thorsten Bauer and Sander van der Meer, bass player JB van der Wal and drummer Felix Born. Liv, a former vocalist for the band Theatre of Tragedy,  formed Leaves' Eyes along with the members of Alexander's heavy metal band Atrocity in 2003. Liv Kristine has also released solo albums. Past members of Leaves' Eyes are guitarist Mathias Roderer, bassists Chris Lukhaup and Alla Fedynitch and drummers Martin Schmidt, Nicholas Barker, Moritz Neuner, Seven Antonopoulos and Roland Navratil. The band have released 4 albums, the most recent being Meredead (2011) and are working on a new one, Symphonies of the Night. A lot of their songs are based on  Nordic sagas and legends. Tale of The Seamaid is from their debut album Lovelorn (2004) and is one of my favourite songs. There isn't a video for it because it was never released as a single. I think the only single off Lovelorn was Into Your Light. That's a shame, because it's a good album. Most of their releases appears to be albums or EPs.

Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant

Earlier this month I did a post on the new series of Teen Mom UK. At the end of of the post I mentioned that a new show had started in America called Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant. It's now due to start in the UK next week, so here's more about the programme. :)

Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant is the latest in the Teen Mom franchise which started with the 2009 series 16 and Pregnant. It follows 5 girls- Ashely, Brianna, Kayla, Lexi and Jade. Their ages vary from 17 to 21.

Lexi Tatman

The clip of Lexi was the first one I saw. She's 17 and  a cheerleader from Colorado. Her baby son's father is Kyler Lopez and she split-up with him before finding out she was pregnant. When you see Lexi cheerleading while pregnant it reminds me of Farrah Abraham (from Teen Mom OG) in her 16 and Pregnant episode!

Here are Lexi's social media links:



Brianna Jaramillo

So Sharp: Dance Squad

So Sharp: Dance Squad is an American reality TV series about the University of Louisville Ladybird Dance Team run by Todd Sharp. It's set in Louisville, Kentucky. As you'll know if you follow this blog, I'm a fan of dance reality shows such as Dance Moms and Bring It! So I was interested when So Sharp started in the UK a few weeks ago.

Todd is head coach along with Sheryl Knight, a former Ladybird herself. Todd has also coached the Floyd Central Dazzlers. The team have won 15 national championships so far.

As with the other dance reality shows, there's a lot of drama! Marissa Hall is close to Todd and describes him as like a father to her. She is considered one if the best dancers and her close relationship with Todd rubs some people up the wrong way, particularly Michelle Carpenter. Rose Crombie is one of Marissa's main rivals but according to the Decidr article about the team (see below) they're close. Gabrielle Iannone struggles sometimes with the choreograp…
