More Summer Songs

Back in August 2016 I did a post of my Top 10 Summer Songs. You can check it out here: https://starsparklex.blogspot.com/2016/08/top-10-summer-songs.html


Now since it's summer again and we're having what it one of the hottest days so far (31/32 Celsius in some places, which is hot for the UK!), I'm sharing some more summer songs. :)


Robin Thicke feat. Pharrell Williams

American/Canadian singer Robin Thicke's single Wanna You Girl has a great exotic beach vibe and was released in August 2005. It was a Weekly Music Video back in May 2012: https://starsparklex.blogspot.com/2012/05/weekly-music-video_30.html


Hadise- Yaz Günu

Turkish Belgian singer Hadise's 2015 single Yaz Günu translates as "Summer Day" in English and has a suitable video to accompany it! It was released in May 2015 and I featured it as a Weekly Music Video in July that year: https://starsparklex.blogspot.com/2015/07/weekly-music-video.html



Mila J- Kickin' Back

Mila's single Kickin' Back is on her EP 213 and was released in July 2016. It has parts that are similar to Will Smith and Jazzy Jeff's Summertime (which is in my first Summer Songs post) and Aaliyah's A Girl Like You. Nice, laid back summer vibe.  I featured it as my Weekly Music Video 2 years ago: https://starsparklex.blogspot.com/2016/07/weekly-music-video_13.html



 Calvin Harris + Dua Lipa- One Kiss


Calvin and Dua's  On Kiss came out in May and it suits the summer season: https://starsparklex.blogspot.com/2018/05/weekly-music-video_41.html



Yemi Alade- How I Feel

Nigerian singer Yemi's single How I Feel featues lots of beach and yacht scenes! It was a Weekly Music Video in June: https://starsparklex.blogspot.com/2018/06/weekly-music-video_36.html


5 Seconds of Summer- Youngblood


Their name has summer is in it, so I'm including 5SOS' latest single Youngblood! Check it out here: https://starsparklex.blogspot.com/2018/06/weekly-music-video_27.html



Jessi- Down

Korean American rapper and singer Jessi's latest single has  tropical sound and beach video which fits this time of year. Jessi (full name Jessica Hyun-ju Ho) was born and raised in the US and moved to Korea aged 15. She's been releasing music since 2005. Her debut EP Un2verse was released in July 2017.

The video for Down was uploaded to Youtube on 6th July. It's a mixture of Korean and English.

Hope you're enjoying the summer. I danced at an event with my belly dance group at midday today and it was really hot! I'm staying indoors for the rest of the day, lol. It's 30C (86F) in my town this evening.


Hope you like the songs! What is your summer soundtrack? :)

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…

Top 10 True Movies

I like watching films based on true stories. I used to watch them occasionally as a child and teen but I started watching them more after the True Movies channels (True Movies 1 and True Movies 2) launched on Sky 11 years ago. It seems weird that it's been so long, lol. I usually watch the films on those channels (or True Entertainment) but I also sometimes watch them on Lifetime or other channels. (I think a lot of these are Lifetime original movies but we didn't get the Lifetime channel in the UK until late 2013).

I thought that today I'd share my Top 10 True Movies. :)


Trigger warning:

Most of the films are based on crimes (often murder or abuse) and I realise these are difficult subjects, so read with caution if you're sensitive to these type of films.
