DANCE BREAK!!! Yanis Marshall & Brian Friedman, “Breathe On Me”

“JUST PUT YOUR LIPS TOGETHER….AND BLOWWWWWW….”

So I’m sure you all remember the last dance break I showcased, and how I mentioned my love for bevys of bad b*tches…but there’s one thing that matches sexy girls almost toe to toe – guys in heels! Up-and-coming French ingenue Yanis Marshall teamed up with seasoned veteran Brian Friedman to choreograph a fire-hot heels combination to one of my favorite Britney Spears song, “Breathe On Me.” Yanis’ claim to fame is his fun, feminine choreo which he usually performs in sky-high platform heels, while Brian has danced & choreographed for every big name in the book – Britney, Janet, Justin Bieber, EVERYBODY. Put them together and you get this little gem that might leave you clutching your pearls. I’m a big fan of both men’s choreo, and although I don’t feel the combo is either of their best work (check these out here and here), it’s definitely a KILLER.

I’m not surprised that it would take the power of Bey to get me back to blogging…but she did it so let’s jump in it!

Last night, the incomparable Beyoncé Knowles was presented the MTV Michael Jackson Video Vanguard award. The Video Vanguard Award, also known as the Lifetime Achievement Award, is given to musicians who have made a profound effect on the MTV culture. Beyoncé’s influence is one of the strongest in the music industry today. With sold out tours, record-breaking music debuts, and successful endeavors amounting in a multi-million dollar net worth,  Beyoncé is the reason, the blueprint, and the design!

Since I haven’t down a rundown in a hot minute, why not breakdown Bey’s 15-minute mini set of songs from her self-titled album that dropped like a thief in the night last December. You ask “Why?”, flip the page and let me show you.

vlogging – opinions???

So I’m toying with the idea of vlogging…Not those daily ones where you follow me around, but a quick video of my experiences in the given situation. I’d love to be able to share a taste of what I do in the summer with you or the craziness of a rehearsal. As much as I have outlets like Instagram (now with video!) and Facebook for that, I’m thinking a video would be relatable and fun too!

spotlight: superbowl 2013 halftime rundown

yes, yes, and yes! werk Bey!

So as we all know there was a football game at the Beyoncé concert last Sunday. The Baltimore Ravens won the game (congrats to them), but Beyoncé won the night. Just a year ago, I reviewed Madonna’s Superbowl halftime performance, and here’s my rundown on Beyoncé’s from this year. It’s kinda becoming a tradition here…I hope next year’s show is as review-worthy as the past two. Pardon my lateness, it was so difficult to get a good video that wouldn’t get taken down by the time I published the blog, but to watch along with my commentary, click the tweet and let’s go!

spotlight: i don’t drink pickle juice…

As silly as pop culture can sometimes be, it can leave us with bright little gems of philosophical greatness that last long past the artist that says them or the situational context it is in. Today’s example is the Harajuku Barbie herself, Miss Onika Maraj (aka Nicki Minaj). Jump the jump and peep Nicki talking about respect around the 28sec mark – the particular anecdote I’m spotlighting ends at 1:27.
