Best concert

Q-Tip with Busta Rhymes and Consequence (Knitting Factory New York baby!) This concert was good on so many levels. 1. It was FREE! 2. I was in New York and just to be in the environment of so many hip hop heads was amazing. The mans/gyals chanting to every hip hop tune played. I was truly left in the shade realising that I still have a lyric or two to learn- "lah di dardy we like to party" I'm quite a newby (is there such a word) 3. Busta Rhymes came and sang a few verses. 4. Did I mention it was FREE! One of my top ten concerts, the atmosphere was just on a next level.

Best Albums
Q-Tip- Renaissance, after such a long wait it was good to see the brilliant Q-tip back in fine form. Loving the quirky look I'm ma try and fine me some of these glasses for 2009- yeah!

Jazmine Sullivan- Fearless

Neyo- Year of the Gentleman.
Such a talented song writer, this man has a lot of longevity. Miss Independent was my jam Sept 2009, W34th St (sniff sniff)

Dwele- Sketches of a Man (got me through many a journey on the New York subway, sniff, sniff)

Most over hyped artist

Lil Wayne- in my opinion anyway!

Best video
Jay Z Roc Boy's. Simply for all the cameo appearances. I have to take my hat off (not literally) to the Jigga man. He made an honest woman of Miss Knowles. He headlined Glastonbury festival, probably opened at least another two 40/40 clubs lol. Plus The Carters were the power couple to top the Forbes List at the latter part of 2008. Well done!

Most Annoying Song's

Lil Wayne- Lollipop see image for most over hyped artist. I'm not saying Lil Wayne is whack but he was very over hyped for 2008.

Snoop- Sensual Seduction

Mary J- Just Fine. I get the message and the song has a good meaning, but after hearing it a zillion times. I just cant take it!

Most Underrated Artist.

Lupe Fiasco, this man has done two albums and still hasn't received the props he deserves hmm...

I'm still flying the flag for the UK. Let's see what Sway brings for 2009, now that he is signed too Akon's Label.

I've probably forgotten many artists in my mini line up, My bad!

Single Ladies part 2

These hot to trot females are going to give Beyonce's Single Ladies video a run for it's money (sarcasm). I haven't seen such a complex dance routine in a long time (side eye glance). Go ladies- shake what your momma gave ya- WHAT?!?!
I wonder if they kindly supplied the vocals playing in the background as well. As I ain't never heard that song before.

Do ya dig the new look?

I'm not really feeling Estelle's new hair do

VV Brown

Milly Tilly kindly introduced me to this singer by inviting me a mini gig on Tues. VV Brown's voice reminds me of Gabriella Cilmi. This lady whose style has been described as 'doo-wop soul' has a lovely voice and 2009 should be a good year for her.


Well Jazmine Sullivan has caught my attention. I'm feeling her debut album "Fearless". It's mixture of reggae and pop, plenty of up-beat tracks and consistent. She has been compared to Lauryn Hill hmmm.. and even co-wrote a track on Jennifer Hudson's album. All this at the mere age of 21, she may just get one or two of the five grammys she's been nominated for. "I buss the windows of your car.."

Who ate all the pies?

I originally put this pic up a few days ago, but took it down due to a friends comments. What happened though to Mikey?????? On that note Busta Rhymes has also grown a bit of a belly hmmmm. It must be down to the generous servings of thanksgiving meals lol. Although I have been waxing off the mince pies drowned in cream. I better go easy or I may just join the over grown belly club (chuckle)

I wonder if they'll make a doll of me one day?

If you are stuck for a christmas gift this year, then why not invest in a Obama doll-YES WE CAN! The preseident-elect (action figure) is apparently selling like hot cakes in the states.

Coolest women under 30

Company magazine has released a list of the coolest women under 30 years old. However this list is not just about trendy clothes but also about achievements. Included in the top ten was Alesha Dixon and Estelle well done ladies.

Alexandra Burke trully has the X Factor!

As I was away with no Internet access my bog has suffered lol. So i'm a bit late reporting Alexandra's win on the X Factor. She deserved it as I feel she was the best performer of the night. Although she didn't really need to win as she will go on to have a successful career regardless, but when you duet with Beyonce Knowles how can you not win. Each week Alexandra Burke got better and better, her confidence grew with each performance. Her attire improved week after week, as well as her hair and make-up which looked flawless. Watch out Leona Lewis as we all know Mr Cowell is now going to whisk Alex off to the states. Allowing her to work with some of the top vocal coaches and producers, watch this space.....

A recap of Saturday nights performance below.
