Dance Videos

Recently I came across a dance video on YouTube (in my recommendations) of a girl called Kaycee Rice. I found this other video of Kaycee dancing with her partner Gabe De Guzman. It's called Monster and it's an interesting dance, it seemed a bit strange to me at first (lol) but it's good.

Kaycee and Gabe are in the 11 year old age category  in this video and the dance style is hip hop. Kaycee became an internet sensation at 10 when the video of her doing a solo called Werk (the one I was recommended) was posted on Twitter by singer Katy Perry. You can read the article and watch the video here: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-2345230/EXCLUSIVE-Katy-Perrys-Tiny-Dancer-How-superstar-turned-little-girl-internet-sensation.html

Kaycee is from Simi Valley in California and dances at Studio 13 Dance, which is owned by her mum Laura Rice. She does a variety of dance styles including hip hop, lyrical and jazz. Some of Kaycee's routines were choreographed by Tricia Miranda who has worked for music stars such as Missy Elliot, Jennifer Lopez, Black Eyed Peas, Britney Spears and Beyonce.

Gabe (full name Gabriel) has won dance competitions at regional and national levels, featured on TV shows and video games and danced with celebrities including Bruno Mars and Will Smith. He's also done TV adverts and live theatre. I think he mainly does hip hop. Both Gabe and Kaycee auditioned for America's Got Talent in June.

I've also been watching the TV show Bring It! on Lifetime (it just started in the UK). It's about a dance team called Dancing Dolls in Jackson, Mississippi. They're taught by Dianna Williams (Miss D) and the type of dancing they do is called "hip hop majorette". It's similar to Dance Moms, the series follows the girl's rehearsing and performing each week.

It seems good so far. Dianna is a tough coach but she doesn't appear to be malicious, like Abby Lee Miller (from Dance Moms) can come across as sometimes. There is some drama, mainly with the mums, lol. Dianna makes them stand outside the studio if they want to watch! This was a dance style I didn't know anything about, so it's good to see something new.

Here is a video of the Dancing Dolls performing in Memphis at the Prancing Tigerettes Jamboree 2014. The Prancing Tigerettes are their rivals but this appears to be an event they were hosting.

Unexpected Girls Updates

Back in September I did a post about the American reality TV show Unexpected. You can read it here: https://starsparklex.blogspot.com/2018/09/unexpected.html

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; https://www.instagram.com/p/BpzfLAjg8ek/

The gossip site Starcasm also reports that Unexpected's producers are casting for a new programme: https://starcasm.net/unexpected-producers-casting-pregnant-teens-from-same-high-school-or-tap-program-for-new-reality-series/

Unexpected

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…

Top 10 True Movies

I like watching films based on true stories. I used to watch them occasionally as a child and teen but I started watching them more after the True Movies channels (True Movies 1 and True Movies 2) launched on Sky 11 years ago. It seems weird that it's been so long, lol. I usually watch the films on those channels (or True Entertainment) but I also sometimes watch them on Lifetime or other channels. (I think a lot of these are Lifetime original movies but we didn't get the Lifetime channel in the UK until late 2013).

I thought that today I'd share my Top 10 True Movies. :)


Trigger warning:

Most of the films are based on crimes (often murder or abuse) and I realise these are difficult subjects, so read with caution if you're sensitive to these type of films.
