Weekly Music Video

Today's video is Thinking It Over by Liberty X. They are a British/Irish group formed by the contestants from reality show Popstars who didn't make it into the final group Hear'say in 2001. The members are Kelli Young, Kevin Simm, Michelle Heaton, Tony Lundon and Jessica Taylor. The group were originally called Liberty but they had to change the name to Liberty X due to legal issues.

Liberty X released their debut single Thinking It Over in September 2001, followed by their debut album of the same title, in May 2002  They went on to have longer more successful careers than Hear'say,  releasing 3 albums (Thinking It Over, Being Somebody and X) and 12 singles (including Thinking It Over, Doin' It, Being Nobody- with Richard X, Jumpin and Everybody Cries) altogether. Their most well known song is Just A Little, which was No 1 on the UK Singles Chart in May 2002.

The band split in 2007 (although they did a one-off gig in summer 2008). But then in 2012 they reunited for the TV show The Big Reunion, which brought together 90s pop groups to do a tour. Some of the other groups were 5ive, Blue and Atomic Kitten. After performing in The Big Reunion arena tour, Liberty X split again but they announced last year that they've signed to new management.

Liberty X were one of my favourite groups. I don't know if they're planning to release anything in the future but I'd be pleased if they did bring out new music. :)

Thinking It Over got to No 5. It was released when the group were still called Liberty.

Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant

25/2/19: Updated with more social media links. :)

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:

Khalid's other singles include Young, Dumb & Broke. Love Lies and OTW with rappers/singers Ty Dolla $ign and 6LACK.

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.
