Weekly Music Video

This week's video is Love Me Harder by Ariana Grande featuring The Weeknd. Ariana (full name Ariana Grande-Butera) is an American singer and actress who prior to releasing music was best known for starring as Cat Valentine in Nickelodeon TV show Victorious and its spinoff Sam & Cat. She also performed in the Broadway musical 13 in 2008. Due to her voice (her vocal range is a 4 octave light lyric soprano) and music style she has been compared to Mariah Carey.

Ariana released her debut single The Way featuring rapper Mac Miller in March 2013 and her debut album Yours Truly in August 2013. Her other singles include Right There featuring  rapper Big Sean (who she is currently dating), Problem featuring  rapper Iggy Azalea, Break Free featuring music producer/DJ Zedd and Bang Bang with singer Jessie J and rapper Nicki Minaj. She also did a duet with Nathan Sykes from The Wanted called Almost Is Never Enough. Last December Ariana brought out an EP for Christmas called Christmas Kisses. In August she released her second album My Everything. Love Me Harder is from My Everything and is out now.

I like Ariana's singles The Way and Right There but I didn't like that many songs off her first album when I listened to it online. I listened to My Everything recently though and I like more songs on that. It seems like a better album (in my opinion). I hope to get it for Christmas, lol.

Love Me Harder is a good song. I like the choice of The Weeknd to feature on it, he fits the song.

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 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…

Christmas Round-up

In October I did a Hallowe'en round-up post. Since today is Christmas Eve I thought it would be cool to do a Christmas round-up. :)

The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis (Narnia)

This is the 2nd book in the fantasy children's series The Chronicles of Narnia. Originally published in 1950, it's become a kid's classic. The series is about the magical land of Narnia which is actually meant to be Heaven. It's ruled over by the great lion Aslan (who is like Jesus). But if you're not religious (like me) it's still an entertaining story.

The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe is about siblings Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy Pevensie who are evacuated from London to the country during the Blitz. They go to stay with Professor Kirke who lives alone apart from his housekeeper Mrs. Macready. While looking round the house the youngest girl Lucy discovers an entrance to Narnia in the back of a wardrobe. She comes out in a snowy…
