New Unexpected

We're finally getting the new season of the reality TV series Unexpected in the UK! Season 3 was shown in the US last summer , and I wondered when we'd get it here. I don't have any online streaming services so thought I'd just watch clips on YouTube, lol. However it's now starting here in early March. Similar to the popular MTV franchise Teen Mom , Unexpected focuses on teen parents. The first series featured 3 couples expecting babies- Lily Bennett and her boyfriend James Kennedy who have daughter Aaliyah, now 2;  Mckayla Adkins and partner Caelan Morrison who have son Timothy, also known as Timmy (and now daughter Gracelynn , born in January 2019), and  Lexus Scheller and boyfriend Shayden Massey who have daughter Scarlett. Season 2 saw the departure of Lilly and the addition of 3 new pregnant girls and their partners- Laura Barron and her boyfriend (now husband) Tylor Stawmyor who have son Lucas (and have since had another baby , a 2nd son, who is named Leo),

Today's video is Boyfriend, the brand new single by Swedish/British singer Mabel . She released her debut studio album High Expectations last summer, but I think this is a stand alone single. The video premiered today. I like Mabel's new blue hair (my favourite colour!). :) Want more Mabel?

MONSTA X Debut English Album

Sorry the post is late this week, I just realised I was behind a day, since I normally do the 2nd post on a Saturday! Bit of a stressful time lately. Never mind. :) Korean boyband Monsta X (sometimes also written as MONSTA X) have just released their debut English language album, ALL ABOUT LUV. It came out on Friday (on Valentine's Day appropriately!).  The groups has released 3 Korean studio albums ,7 Korean  EPs and 2 Japanese albums  to date. I heard about their English album a while and I'm sure many English speaking fans have been looking forward to it! Although I'm (obviously) a K-pop fan, it is nice to hear songs by them in my first/native language. :) Sadly the group is down a member with Wonho leaving in October . ALL ABOUT LUV contains 11 tracks (12 on the Extended Version which includes I.M.s rap version of BESIDE YOU). As you can tell by the album title all the songs are written in caps. And as you can tell the songs are all about love! This is a good albu

Bollywood Dance Videos- Street Dancer 3D

I recently shared my first dance videos post of the year. You can read that here: https://starsparklex.blogspot.com/2020/01/dance-videos_24.html Today I'm featuring some Bollywood dance videos. I kept coming across videos for choreographies to songs from the new Bollywood film Street Dancer 3D , so today's post is Street Dancer themed! :) Muqabla Song  by Sharma Sisters First up is a dance by the Sharma Sisters to Muqabla from Street Dancer. The Sharma Sisters are Tanya and Kritika and they are actresses from India. Muqabla is a new version of the one from the 1994 Kollywood (Tamil language) film Kadhalan . The movie has also been released in Tollywood (Telugu) as Premikudu and Bollywood (Hindi) as Hum Se Hai Muqabala.

(Most Korean groups are either all male or all female). They debuted in  September with the songs Now and Side Kick. Their 1st mini album was released on 19th September. The group also does K-pop dance covers. Now is my favourite out of their debut songs. I like the chilled
