Weekly Music Video

This week's video is Jealous by American singer and actor Nick Jonas. He started out by performing on Broadway as a child and in 2002 released a song that he wrote with his dad called Joy to the World (A Christmas Prayer). In 2005 he formed the  group Jonas Brothers, along with his older brothers Kevin and Joe. (They also have a younger brother called Frankie). Jonas Brothers also starred in the Disney Channel series Jonas L.A. Apparently the original plan was for Nick to have a solo career but the brothers ended up all being signed to a record label. Nick is also in a band called Nick Jonas & the Administration. (Jonas Brothers split in 2013).

Nick has released 2 solo studio albums, Nicholas Jonas (2005) and Nick Jonas (2014), 1 EP, Songs from How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying (2012) and 4 solo singles, his older ones Dear God and Joy to the World and 2 from his latest album Nick Jonas, Chains and Jealous.

Nick has starred in quite a few musicals and films, besides releasing music. His other projects include musicals A Christmas Carol (2000), Beauty and the Beast (2002) and Hairspray (2011), the TV movie Camp Rock (2008) and its sequel Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam which was released in 2010 (both with his brothers),  the new version  of TV series Hawaii Five-O and film Careful What You Wish For, which is due out this year.

I've never been that into the Jonas Brothers' music or but Nick's older solo stuff but I like his new music. It's more R'n'B that previous releases. Jonas Brothers' music is pop rock.

Jealous is the second single from Nick Jonas. It was released in the US last September but they've only just started showing the video over here. It's due for release in the UK on 5th April.. Nick's real life girlfriend Miss Universe 2012 Olivia Culpo appears in the video There's also a remix featuring Tinashe, which is good as well.




Just saw that there's a Gospel version of the song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bMb_cBv3iks

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…
