Weekly Music Video

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.

Unexpected Girls Updates

Back in September I did a post about the American reality TV show Unexpected. You can read it here:

There have been two seasons (or series as we also call it in the UK) so far. There will be a 3rd one  featuring mums Lexus, Mckayla and Chloe (Chloe joined in Series 2). Emiley who joined in Season 2, says she isn't returning (see below) so. Laura (who also joined in S2) will also not be back (see below for more on that). Original cast member Lexus shared a casting call on her Instagram page in November, so it seems the company is looking for new girls due to give birth from March to June 2019. Check out the post here;

The gossip site Starcasm also reports that Unexpected's producers are casting for a new programme:

23/2/19: Updated with new links. :)

Unexpected (full title Unexpected: Teenage & Pregnant) is an American reality TV series following the lives of pregnant teenagers and their partners, and their journey into parenthood. It's the TLC version of the hit show 16 and Pregnant, which spawned the spin off Teen Mom. The first series/season was shown last year, and Series 2 was shown in the US this summer and has just started in the UK.

Season 1 followed  16 year old Lilly Bennett and her boyfriend James,  15 year old Lexus Scheller and boyfriend Shayden, 17, and Mckayla Adkins 16 and her boyfriend Caelan Morrison. Lilly gave birth to daughter Aaliyah Rose, Lexus had a daughter named Scarlett, and McKayla had son Timothy (Timmy).

All 3 of the girls' mums were also teen mothers, and in Lexus' case her grandmother was a teen mum too.

S2 catches up with Mckayla and Lexus, and introduce some new girls and their boyfriends. I'm focusing mainly on the girls here, like with my Te…

Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant UK

The Teen Mom universe keeps growing! This month sees the start of a brand new spin-off- a UK version of Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant. The original Teen Mom, now re-named Teen Mom OG (itself a spin-off on the American reality show 16 and Pregnant, which follow pregnant teenagers) started in 2009 and there have been several other shows since- Teen Mom 2, Teen Mom 3 (cancelled after one season), Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant and Teen Mom: Young Moms Club (formerly Pretty Little Mamas). There have also been several international versions, including Teen Mom UK and Teen Mom Australia. Series 6 of TM: UK just finished and now the British version of Young and Pregnant is due to start next week.

TM: Young and Pregnant UK follows 4 new girls- Charlie, Alisha, Laura and Charlotte who are all expecting babies. When TM UK started only Mia Boardman was pregnant but this time all of the mums were pregnant during filming. (Which makes sense since this is "young and pregnant"! lol).
