Love Me ?

"Love me love me, say that you love me, fool me fool me"

Overhearing "love me, love me, say that you love me", I had assumed that someone was doing a cover of 90's pop band, The Cardigans classic "Love Fool". When I sang the next few lines of the song and was wrong, I knew something was up.

Justin Bieber has sampled the start of The Cardigans song "Love Fool", but has then changed the lyrics of the rest of the song and is calling it "Love Me". It's the same tune as well!

"Love me, love me, say that you love me, fool me, fool me, oh how you do me, kiss me, kiss me, say that you miss me, tell me what I wanna hear, tell me you love me."

"Love Me" is the third single from Justin's debut album, My World.

Mariah Carey Vs. Eminem

"And I was like, why you so obsessed with me?"

According to rapper Eminem, he previously dated diva Mariah Carey for a six month period. In interviews, Mariah Carey denied this fact.

"Me and Mariah did have a relationship for about a good six moths, but it didn't work. I wasn't really into what she was into; our personalities collided. She's a diva and I'm a little more regular, I guess. I can never deny her talent, but the fact that she denied we ever had something, that's bad." - Eminem

Mariah Carey then continued on in releasing a single off her album 'Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel', named 'Obsessed'. This song was a personal and public attack on Eminem.

Rebuttling, Eminem released new single 'The Warning', which is no secret, about Mariah Carey. Directly attacking both Mariah Carey and husband, Nick Cannon, 'The Warning' exposes the prior relationship these two musicians allegedly shared.

In My Head

"You know the way I work, I'm like a

commercial jingle. First it's a little irritating, then you hear

it a few times, you hum it in the shower, by the third date it's

"By Mennen!". -

George Costanza

George Costanza is both a gentleman and a scholar. Singing your own name in the hope that it will get stuck into a woman's head to secure a second date is a strategy most R&B artists are doing in the opening of their tracks.

Most recently, you cannot listen to a Jason Derulo song without getting "Ja-son Derul-ohhh" stuck in your head.

Debuting with "Whatcha Say", sampling Imogen Heap's "Hide & Seek", followed by second single "In My Head", Derulo is making a catchy name for himself in 2010.

However, Derulo is not alone. T-Pain, T.I and Ludacris are all guilty for reciting their name in the opening moments of their song. I gue

ss that's why Jason Derulo named his second single "In My Head" because his name is always "in my head".

Pop Songs Are Best Represented By Graphs

"So many people simply can't understand what artists mean in their songs. And so many artists complain when the general public just don't know what they're trying to get across in their music. Well kind people from all over the world have put in time and effort in an attempt to bring artists and the public together. Uniting through the wonder of graphs!"

This description comes from the Facebook Group "Pop Songs Are Best Represented By Graphs". Thanks to this group, I now know that 100% of the time you can blame it on the boogie and Rick Astley is never gonna give you up, let you down, run around and desert you, make you cry, say goodbye or tell a lie and hurt you. So that's good to know...

With 900 different graphs, it is clear that some people have way too much time on their hands. But bless them, it's hilarious.

Pop Songs Are Best Represents By Graphs (

1. Michael Jackson - Blame It On The Boogie
2. Bonnie Tyler - Total Eclipse Of The Heart
3. Jay Z - 99 Problems
4. 3OH!3 Ft. Katy Perry - Starstrukk

Bluffin' With My Muffin

I won't tell you that I love you, kiss or hug you, cause I'm bluffin' with my muffin, I'm not lying I'm just stunnin' with my love-glue-gunning. Just like a chick in the casino, Take your bank before I pay you out, I promise this, promise this, check this hand cause I'm marvellous.

God, thy name is Gaga.

Stefani Germanotta, stage name, Lady Gaga is world renowned for being disturbed and fabulous, known for pushing boundaries, bizarre outfits and scandalous performances.

The best performance of Lady Gaga's Poker Face is played acoustically with a piano and her magnificent screeches, recorded by AOL Music Sessions. From the clicking of her thumbs to her playing the piano with her foot, this performance is proof that Gaga is most definitely 'gaga'.

"When I saw the AOL video, that's what made me fall in love with the song — when I saw her play the acoustic version. I could hear all the melody lines. On the 'Poker Face' single, she sings it straightforward, almost, like, ripping it or chanting it. But on the acoustic version, you hear the Broadway melodies run up and down. I was inspired by that. I wanted to sample it. I thought it was really dope — just on some hip-hop, 'Say when I p-p-poke her face." - Kayne West.

Hitler Hates Kanye West

Yo Kanye, I'm really happy for you. Imma let you finish. But Hitler had one of the best videos of all time. One of the best videos of ALL TIME!

Everybody has seen the infamous video at the MTV Video Music Awards of douchebag, Kanye West interrupting Taylor Swift's acceptance speech. Moments after Taylor accepted her award for Best Female Video for "You Belong With Me" over Beyonce's "Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)", West storms on stage, snatching the microphone from Taylor.

What you might have missed was Hitler's strong reaction to what happened the night of the MTV Video Music Awards.

"It was a beatufiul video too. A band geek falls in love with the jock football player. But he likes this other fucking cheerleader. I'm also pretty sure Taylor Swift played both girls in the video; a masterpiece of epic proportions. Truly an achievement in boy meets girl video stoytelling."

You Know How I Know You're Gay?

While researching a university music assignment on androgyny and music, I came across a website called, “God Hates Fags, Love Gods Way”. Expecting the website to be filled with If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them, I was oddly surprised when I was told exactly what music was particularly homosexual.

“One of the most dangerous ways homosexuality invades family life is through popular music. They lure children in with Pop Grooves and Salacious Melodies leaving them wanting more. They’ll move on to more dangerous bands and the next thing you know you’ve got a homosexual for a child.

When reviewing the unexpectedly long list of “gay” bands, I decided that this Donnie Davies character who had written this list, has obviously been smoking from a crack pipe. According to this list, Slipknot and The Cure are gay because they wear make-up and NOFX were from a new musical genre called "gay punk". Check out the entire list of 130 "gay" bands here : (

“If you find 3 or more of these bands in their collection it is time to take action. We Strongly recommend that you burn the CDs. Make sure your child is watching. Make sure they can feel the heat. It is crucial that the image remains emblazoned in their young minds. They need to know that if they continue to listen to these bands they may Burn eternally as well."

Pretty Fly For A White Guy

Not since The Beatles have teenage girls been screaming out for newest pop sensation, Justin Bieber. Okay, maybe that’s too big a call since we’ve had our fair share of Hanson, Aaron Carter and Jesse McCartney's. So why are audiences so shocked when they hear that Justin Bieber, the latest teen craze is just sixteen?

How old is he? Like 12?seems to be the majority of first reactions I have encountered. Slightly older than 12, Justin Bieber is in fact 16 years old. While this is still an incredibly young age to establish ones name in the music world, Justin Bieber is not alone. At 22, the Jonas Brothers have obviously reached their used by date and are now simply “too old” for juvenile girls to obsess and drool over. Needing a new fad to replace last week’s, Justin Bieber was discovered on youtube, introduced to R&B singer, Usher and signed to The Island Def Jam record label. It has occurred to me that every time Bieber’s name is brought up in conversation, when told he is only sixteen, mouths instantly drop to the floor. What? You mean, it was okay for Miley Cyrus to have a successful TV show at age 14, a film career, record deal and fashion label at age 16 but when the latest 16 year old R&B singer reaches the Billboard charts it’s a little controversial?

It might have something to do with the audience demographic. Artists mentioned like Jesse McCartney, The Jonas Brothers and Miley Cyrus targeted the pop music pre-teens/teenagers as their core audience. We haven’t really had any young R&B breakthrough artists since Lil’ Bow Wow or even Lil’ Romeo, unlike Bieber, these Lil’ musicians were black. Wait, can I say that? Justin Bieber’s objective target audience is both the R&B demographic and the pre-teen/teens. Definitely receiving admiration from pop music’s most significant judges, teenage girls, I don’t think the R&B world welcomes Bieber with too much regard. What can I say; everyone needs a little white chocolate now and again.

Unlike Peter Pan, everybody else grows up. Jesse McCartney who once brought us “Beautiful Soul” is now collaborating with rappers Ludacris and T-Pain. The Jonas Brothers, Nick Jonas has broken out of the brotherly band and introduced “The Administration” to the world, this band, not involving Disney. Now an innocent young boy, it is just a matter of time before the corruption of the music industry distorts this na├»ve artist. Oh, hold on. Usher is in Bieber’s film clip “One Time” and Ludacris collaborates and rap’s on hit single “Baby”. Already singing about girls and ‘love’, it seems this adolescent boy is growing up a little too prematurely for his time.

I didn’t receive the memo but apparently bangs are back in? Forget actual talent, having hair that resembles Zac Efron or a lesbian ( is really all you need to have a successful career in the music industry. Just wait until his voice breaks...
