Watch This: Adele Before She Was Big

Let me start by saying: If you haven’t heard of Adele you must be living under a rock. When I think of female singers I love, Adele is way up there at the top. Making her company at the top of my list are Regina Spektor and Florence Welch. Yes, I love Lady Gaga, but even though I love her as an artist and think she’s a great singer, as a “voice” she is not at the top of my list. Adele and the other two I mentioned have something, something that when the question of “If you could only listen to one artist for the rest of your life, who would it be” pops up their names comes screaming inside of me. I still remember the first time I listened to Adele, and then falling in love with her on the Sarah Palin episode of SNL.

Below you are going to see a different Adele, before she “made it” and you will see clearly why she made it. Many have tried comparing her to Amy Winehouse and Duffy, but even with a similar sound, her songs go deeper, if you allow them to. And if you were wondering, yes, I am mildly obsessed. Her last album, 21, keeps selling like hotcakes and I will not be surprised to see it get a bunch of Grammys, just as her previous one did.

Enjoy this video from the archives, let it sink in…

 

Lady Gaga Wearing… Normal Clothes!!!

Have you heard of Lady Gaga? Well, who hasn’t? And yes, every time we see a photo of her on TV, online or virtually anywhere you can expect little clothes, leather, latex, crazy wigs etc. Well, it’s time to be surprised. Lady Gaga was seen landing on the US after a promotional tour for her latest album, Born This Way, all over the world with… a dress. Not only that, but also a black wig, a briefcase, and “normal” heels. Yes, it’s true!

What do you think?

The Dark Knight Rises Official Poster

I have to say, Summer 2012, seems so far away and this makes it even worse. The official poster for the next Batman movie, The Dark Knight Rises, has been revealed and the teaser trailer will supposedly come out this week with the Harry Potter premier. I can’t wait.

Cher Lloyd: New Song “Super Hero”

Just a few days after the release of her new video, an acoustic rendition of Cher Lloyd’s new song Superhero has hit the lazernets! And let me say, I love it much more than her actual single.

Well well well, how the turntables: James Spader Joins The Office

Comedian James Spader has joined the cast of The Office, but it seems that he will not replace Michael Scott after all. At least not for long. It is said that James will replace Michael Scott, but will quickly be promoted to CEO of Sabre-Dunder Mifflin.

Paul Liberstein, who plays Toby and is one of the series’ executive producers said:

“James will reprise his role as Robert California, this uber-salesman that has a power to convince and manipulate, like a high-class weirdo Jedi warrior, he’ll have been hired over the summer as the new manager, but within hours, got himself promoted. Within days, he took over the company. James has an energy that is completely his own, and The Office has no tools for dealing with this guy. We’re thrilled he’s joining our cast.”

I quite enjoyed James performance on last season’s final episode . I felt like Jim did, this guy is either an idiot or a genius. A combination that can make great comedy. But still, who will replace Steve Carell as the boss? Who will be Dunder Mifflin Scranton’s new boss for good? The more I watch Catherine Tate on that episode, the more I like what they can do with her character. Let’s be real, they will not be able to find another Michael Scott, but they can sure bring a character that can revitalize the series. It worked for American Idol when the producers realized that there is no other Simon Cowell.

I have absolutely no idea. Who was your favorite of the guest stars bidding for the position?

Pia Toscano Gets Signed… New Song Coming Next Week!

No surprise there. Remember when Pia was eliminated from American Idol and everyone in the world cried? Ha! Well, it paid off, the outcry was heard and what was rumored is today a reality. Pia Toscano has been signed by Interscope Records.

Her first single, This Time, will be released on July 12th and she will also be singing it every night of the American Idol tour. If you have been following Idol as I have, you know that this doesn’t happen often. i have always said that Idol should strike the iron while it’s hot and they finally listened to me. Oh hai, Idol. You are welcome!

If you want to see a little bit more of Pia, go on to http://www.piatoscanoofficial.com/ and see the 4th Kardashian sister in all her splendor. I wish her well, she really has a nice voice, hopefully they can slap the spirit of boredom off her. ;)

In other American Idol related news: David Cook’s second album sold around 44k copies, not great, hopefully it will keep selling. Scotty McCreery saw the release of his American Idol Highlights album this week as well with close to 39k copies sold, not bad, after having sold most of those songs on iTunes as well. Lauren Alaina, on the other hand, sold 19k copies. I guess America chose the right winner.

Excited about Pia’s Album?

Mourning Gleeks: No More Glee for Sam

Today we mourn. News broke last night that Chord Overstreet will no longer be on Glee when the 3rd season starts. Chord tweeted saying “well its been a good yr too bad its over, time for summer and starting fresh.” I’m not happy about it, Glee needs Trouty lips. There’s also news that Darren Criss and Harry Shum will become series’ regulars. Not impressed. Yes, Darren has become very popular in the show but Harry? Meh.

After watching The Glee Project I can see why Chord may be leaving. He certainly provides a healthy amount of eyecandy on the show, but the writers have apparently struggled to give him a good storyline. And now, that things were starting to look upwards, giving him a background of a troubled family and having him hookup with diva Mercedes… off he goes. Is it true? We’ll have to wait and see.

So, for all you Sam lovers out there I leave you with a small gallery of his best looks!

New Video: Swagger Jagger – Cher Lloyd

Cher Lloyd was one of the highest ranking contestants on the last season of The X-Factor UK. Mainly because she was different than the usual contestants on singing competitions, from her first audition the judges knew there was something special about the girl. She really rocked that audition(Watch Below). She did not win the competition but did enough to secure her place in the music business at least for now, sparking the interest of Will.i.am who apparently is helping her get established as a star.

Now, months after her last performances on the show she has just released her video for her brand new single Swagger Jagger. I like it, but I really don’t love the song. That chorus annoys me a bit. She looks pretty, the finally fixed her eyebrows. I’ve always thought she looks a bit like Cheryl Cole.

Watch her X-Factor audition after the jump!
