Dance Moms Music Videos

Two of the Abby Lee Dance Company (ALDC) students from the reality show Dance Moms have released music videos recently. Following in the footsteps of former student Brooke Hyland and current student Mackenzie Ziegler aka Mack Z, Nia Frazier and Kendall Vertes are also launching singing careers.

Sadly the whole thing has been made into a big competition between the girls because the dance teacher Abby wanted to manage Nia's career but her mum Holly went "behind Abby's back" and contacted singer-songwriter Aubrey O'Day to arrange a meeting. Holly feels that Abby doesn't have Nia's best interests at heart. Since Kendall's mum Jill is happy for Abby to manage Kendall, it's turned into a rivalry. I don't think there's anything wrong with lighthearted competition, but on Dance Moms you can see the whole thing is affecting Nia and Kendall. So this isn't a "Vs" post, I'm just featuring both girls' videos here today. :)

I couldn't find an official upload of Kendall's, maybe its being released later. I'll post a clip for now and update it when there's an official full version.

Here's Nia's video for Star In Your Own Life. Star In Your Own Life Remix is available on iTunes now.

And Kendall's video for Wear Em Out. Payton, another member of the ALDC, is one of Kendall's back-up dancers.

Update 16/12/15: The previous video was removed but here is the official Lifetime upload.

There is a full length version but isn't as good quality. It looks like it was filmed at an event, maybe the video premiere? Here's the link:

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!

Here are Lexi's social media links:



Brianna Jaramillo

Brianna is 18 and  lives in W…

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…
