Weekly Music Video

This week's video is Fergalicious by American singer Fergie. Her full name is Stacey Ferguson and she is a member of American group the Black Eyed Peas as well as being a solo singer.

As a child Fergie was part of the TV show Kids Incorparated. She went on to form trio Wild Orchid and they released 2 albums before she left in 2001. In 2003 Fergie joined the Black Eyed Peas and they released their 3rd album Elephunk, which featured some of their mort successful songs, Where Is The Love, Shut Up, Don't Phunk With My Heart and My Humps. Since then the group have brought out 2 more albums, their last being The Beginning in 2010. As far as I know Fergie is still part of of the Black Eyed Peas but since she didn't appear on their last two songs Awesome and Yesterday it's not known if she will be on their new album.

In July 2006 Fergie launched her career as a solo artist with the single London Bridge. It was a hit, reaching No 1 in the Billboard Hot 100 Chart in the US and in New Zealand, No 3 in the UK Singles Chart and high positions in other countries. In September 2006 she released her debut solo album The Dutchess which was popular. Fergie brought out 4 more singles from the album, Fergalicious, Glamorous featuring rapper Ludacris, Big Girls Don't Cry and Clumsy. Later singles (not from The Dutchess) include Finally featuring singer John Legend and Labels or Love from the Sex and The City film soundtrack (2008).

In addirtion to singing Fergie has acted in a few films including the remake of Posideon (2006) and musical Nine (2009). She hasn't released any more albums to date but The Dutchess ws re-released as The Dutchess EP in 2008. In late 2014 Fergie made a comeback with the single L.A. LOVE (La La) featuring rapper YG. Last June she said that she was finishing working on her second solo album but there's no sign of it yet. I hope she brings one out soon because it's 10 years this year since she released The Dutchess! I have it and it's a good album.
 

Fergalious features Fergie's bandmate will.iam and was released as a single in October 2006. Although it was her second best selling song in the US, it didn't do so well in the UK (No 62) but it's one of her most shown music videos here and one of my personal favourite Fergie songs. :) The song is the video is different to the album version since some single releases were shorter.

So Sharp: Dance Squad

So Sharp: Dance Squad is an American reality TV series about the University of Louisville Ladybird Dance Team run by Todd Sharp. It's set in Louisville, Kentucky. As you'll know if you follow this blog, I'm a fan of dance reality shows such as Dance Moms and Bring It! So I was interested when So Sharp started in the UK a few weeks ago.

Todd is head coach along with Sheryl Knight, a former Ladybird herself. Todd has also coached the Floyd Central Dazzlers. The team have won 15 national championships so far.

As with the other dance reality shows, there's a lot of drama! Marissa Hall is close to Todd and describes him as like a father to her. She is considered one if the best dancers and her close relationship with Todd rubs some people up the wrong way, particularly Michelle Carpenter. Rose Crombie is one of Marissa's main rivals but according to the Decidr article about the team (see below) they're close. Gabrielle Iannone struggles sometimes with the choreograp…

Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant

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!
