J-pop vs Bollywood

I thought I'd do something different for the "vs" category! Today I'm posting two songs that use similar music and beats from J-pop and Bollywood.



Update 14/9/18: Videos are now blocked from being shown on third party applications. If you click on the videos you can watch them fine on YouTube. :)

 The first one is the song Want Me, Want Me by Japanese singer Namie Amuro. It was released as a single in 2005 and was on her third compliation album BEST FICTION (2008). According to Wikipedia it features a sitar sample.


        

                               
                                                  
               


The second one is the song Aa Khushi Se Khudkhusi Kar Le from the 2007 Bollywood film DarlingFardeen Khan stars in the film as Aditya ("Adit"), who is married to Ashwini (Isha/Eesha Koppikar) but having an affair with his secretary Geeta (Esha Deol). When Geeta gets pregnant and refuses to abort the baby, she and Aditya fight and he accidentally kills her. Geeta's ghost then starts haunting him, intent on getting revenge. The video is a scene from the beginning of the film, where Aditya is watching a movie at the cinema and imagines himself in the role of the man dancing with the actress, who is played by Nisha (Priyanka) Kothari. I think the scene is just put in to show how he's lusting after other women! lol.



                                      


Which do you prefer? I like both but maybe Aa Khushi Se Khudkhusi slightly more.

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:
