Weekly Music Video

This week's video is for the song Thinking About You by Calvin Harris feat. Ayah Marar. It's one of my favourite songs at the moment.

Calvin Harris (real name Adam Richard Wiles) is a British DJ, singer/songwriter and music producer who released his first album I Created Disco in 2007. The first single from the album was called Vegas and was released as a limited edition vinyl but it was the second single Acceptable in the 80s that was most successful, it reached No 10 in the UK singles chart (March 2007). Calvin has produced music and written songs for quite a few artists, including Kylie Minogue, Dizzee Rascal and Rihanna. He has two other studio albums Ready For The Weekend (2009) and 18 Months (2012). A few of his most popular singles are I'm Not Alone (his first No 1 in April 2009), Ready for The Weekend (No 3 in August 2009) and Bounce featuring Kelis (No 2 in June 2011). His latest single is Under Control with Alesso featuring Hurts.

 Ayah Marar is a Jordanian singer/songwriter, who also owns record labels and  hosts radio shows. She had her own DJ residency for four years at nightclub Herbal. She previously worked with Calvin on some of his early singles. Ayah's latest single is Beg Borrow Steal.

Thinking About You was the 8th single from 18 Months. I don't quite understand the video, it has different storylines and features rich people having a non-stop party, more rich people on a boat who then get taken hostage by Somali pirates, a boy beating up another boy, a couple having sex on a plane and two girls kissing in a nightclub! Maybe it's about the jet set lifestyle and how things that can go wrong? I think I saw people on YouTube commenting that Theo from Hurts is in it. This is the "uncut" version compared to what they show on the music channels but I think there was originally an explicit one.

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:

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…
