Weekly Music Video

This week's video is Lush Life by Swedish singer Zara Larsson. Her first name is pronounced "Sara" and her career started aged 10 when she won the 2008 series of Talang Sverige (formerly Talang), the Swedish version of Britain's Got Talent. She went on to release a cover of Celine Dion's My Heart Will Go On as her debut single.

In 2012 she signed to TEN Music Group and released her debut EP Introducing and second single in early 2013. Uncover was No 1 in Sweden and Norway and also did well in Denmark.  That same year she brought out her second EP Allow Me To Reintroduce Myself and also signed to the American label Epic Records.

In October 2014 Zara released her debut studio album 1 and the following June brought out Lush Life, one of her most successful singles to date. Her other releases include the 2015 EP Uncover (her first release outside of Europe) which contains 6 songs from 1, The Remixes EP and singles Never Forget You with British singer MNEK and Girls Like with British rapper Tinie Tempah. She's set to release her 2nd studio album later this year.

While Lush Life was released over a year ago, I don't remember actually seeing the video on music channels until a few months ago. There are actually 3 videos. The first one I saw was the international version but there's also a Swedish version which was the original. More recently a third video has come out, under the name Alternate version. I've featured both the first international video and the Alternate version. I actually prefer the first one I saw, just like it better for some reason. :)

Here's the international video:




And the Alternate version:



You can also see both the Swedish and international videos side by side here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UQXe5egyRiU

There's not really much of a difference, they've just added some special effects and taken out some scenes from the Swedish version.

Update 13/8/16: I just found another video too, the Pop Version (Play with pop). Check it out here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bYZM1EfMJl4

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…

Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant UK

The Teen Mom universe keeps growing! This month sees the start of a brand new spin-off- a UK version of Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant. The original Teen Mom, now re-named Teen Mom OG (itself a spin-off on the American reality show 16 and Pregnant, which follow pregnant teenagers) started in 2009 and there have been several other shows since- Teen Mom 2, Teen Mom 3 (cancelled after one season), Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant and Teen Mom: Young Moms Club (formerly Pretty Little Mamas). There have also been several international versions, including Teen Mom UK and Teen Mom Australia. Series 6 of TM: UK just finished and now the British version of Young and Pregnant is due to start next week.

TM: Young and Pregnant UK follows 4 new girls- Charlie, Alisha, Laura and Charlotte who are all expecting babies. When TM UK started only Mia Boardman was pregnant but this time all of the mums were pregnant during filming. (Which makes sense since this is "young and pregnant"! lol).
