Weekly Music Video

Today's music video is for the single Jack Sparrow by American comedy/music group The Lonely Island and featuring American singer Michael Bolton. The Lonely Island consists of Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccone and Akiva Schaffer, who met in junior high school and began making videos in September 2000. They worked on American comedy sketch show Saturday Night Live (Andy was a cast member and Jorma and Akiva were writers).

The Lonely Island have released 3 albums, Incredibad (2009), Turtleneck & Chain (2011) and The Wack Album (2013). Their music is a parody of hip hop/R'n'B and tends to have sexual and/or silly themes, lol.  Some of their most well known songs are J*zz in My Pants, I Just Had Sex and YOLO. The band have worked with quite a few celebrities, including Akon on I Just Had Sex,  Justin Timberlake on D*ck in a Box and Lady Gaga on 3-Way.

Jack Sparrow was released in 2011 and is meant to be a song about how skilled the group members are with picking up women but it gets hijacked by Michael Bolton who seems to be just a bit obsessed with Captain Jack Sparrow from Pirates of the Caribbean!

Please note that the video contains swearing.

J Soul Brothers (Japanese boyband)

I don't know that many Japanese boybands. It's funny but I mostly know Korean groups and Japanese solo singers! I know KAT-TUN, Arashi (although they're more of a rock group, I think) and Hey! Say! JUMP but not many more. A friend recently introduced to me the band (or vocal and dance unit) J Soul Brothers, so I thought today I'd do a post about them. And of course it fits into the J-pop and K-pop theme I'm doing this month! This is a good opportunity to find more J-pop boybands too. :)


The J Soul Brothers were originally formed in 1998 but have gone through two line-up changes. The current incarnation- full title Sandaime (Third Generation) J Soul Brothers from EXILE TRIBE* or J Soul Brothers III- was formed in 2010 by HIRO who is the leader of Japanese boyband EXILE (which has an impressive 19 members!) and founding member of the First Generation J Soul Brothers.  It was decided that EXILE and former Nidaimie (Second Generation) J Soul Brothers members NAOTO and …

Dance Videos

It's time for another dance post! I thought I'd feature both modern dance and belly dance today. :)


First of all here are a couple of dance videos by choreographer Rumer Noel. This is one to Everyday by Ariana Grande that was uploaded in January. According to comments on YouTube the man dancing with Rumer at the beginning is called Lucas la Parada.



Dance Moms- Chloe Update

Series/Season 7 of American reality show Dance Moms is currently showing in the UK and I recently heard that one of the original dancers Chloe Lukasiak will be returning for the finale.

Chloe and her mum Christi weren't liked by the dance teacher and studio owner Abby Lee Miller and Christi often clashed with Abby. They left at the end of Series 4. Abby treated Chloe horribly in my opinion, once referring to her as "that girl over there" instead of her name. I always disliked the way Abby punishes the girls if she falls out with their mothers. Also Abby seemed to want to Chloe to fail in competitions, which was weird because she was one of her students representing her!! I think she just wants to be proven right a lot of the time. Chloe was my favourite out of the original girls (Chloe, Maddie, Nia, Mackenzie, Brooke  ans Paige, although Kendall joined quite early on) and I was glad for her when she finally left because she didn't have to put up with being treated li…
