Weekly Music Video

Today's video is Stuck On You by British singer Joss Stone. She first became famous aged 16 with the release of her debut album The Soul Sessions in September 2003 and and its first single Fell in Love with a Boy, a cover of The White Stripes' song (theirs is called Fell in Love with a Girl), which came out in early 2004.

The Soul Sessions was very successful and Joss' second album Mind Body Soul (released in September 2004) was also a best seller. The lead single You Had Me which came out the same month, is one of her most successful songs. To date she has released 7 albums, the rest are Introducing Joss Stone (2007), Colour Me Free! (2009), LP1 (2011), The Soul Sessions Vol 2 (2012) and her most recent Water For Your Soul which was released in summer 2015. Some of her other singles are Right to Be Wrong, Don't Cha Wanna Ride, Tell Me What We're Gonna Do Now featuring American rapper Common, Teardrops which is a cover of the Womack & Womack song (I like the 1998 Lovestation version the best), Stuck on You and The Answer. She also has a greatest hits album and 3 live/session EPs.

Joss was part of the "supergroup" SuperHeavy, with Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger, Indian composer and musician A.R. RahmanEurythmics and solo singer Dave Stewart and Jamaican rapper/singer Damian Marley (son of Bob Marley).

She also acts, playing witch/fortune teller Angela in the 2006 film Eragon in 2006 and Anne of Cleeves, the fourth wife of English king Henry VIII in TV series The Tudors. In addition she's appeared on several TV shows.

In recent years Joss hasn't received much mainstream promotion. She was originally signed to the record label EMI but fought legally to leave them and the release of her 4th album Colour Me Free! was delayed. She set up her own label called Stone'd Records in 2011. I only discovered Colour Me Free! on Spotify and have come across her later albums there too.

Stuck On You is from Water For Your Soul. I wasn't even aware that it was a single and there was a video until the other day when I came across it on YouTube. I got the album last Christmas and have been listening to it again lately. Joss started out with soul and R'n'B music but WFYS is more reggae heavy. Some are more soul/chilled though, like Stuck On You. It's one of my favourite songs and the video is nice as well. :)

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!
