celine dion is so weird, endearing and naive. i love her.

oh here we go: celine dion made it back on the headlines with some crazy batshizz stuff. given how strongly the public is reacting to the death of whitney houston, celine’s statements are bound to land her in some hot water.

but let’s be honest here: we’re all thinking the same thing. she is just saying it out loud. what’s more, she’s saying it from a perspective of a mother who’s tried very hard to conceive. naturally, seeing a mother skirt her motherly duties because of drugs is going to hit a little closer to home with her. granted, now may not have been the time to be saying it. in fact, the time would have been 10 years ago…in a private conversation with whitney herself. not now. not so soon after her death.

but it’s celine dion–she arm claps. she says the word “lurve” and actually means it. she has a workout video (not really). simply, she is the best singer in the world. remember when she cried on larry king about sending kayaks, cash, blood and… cheese whiz? i don’t think she meant any harm or offense. in fact, she seems to actually have a lot of respect for whitney:

she just got caught up in all the whitney-ness of it all. and while we all pretend to have actually had concern for whitney all these years when in fact, we all made fun of her erratic behavior, celine chose to turn something tragic into something to learn from. and if that doesn’t work, she’s french canadian. give her a break.

so now i leave you with one of whitney’s songs:

looks like it’s gonna rain again

i heard a song i’d never heard of for the first time last night and i’m super excited!

one word i keep using to describe this song is “sexy.” it’s just so sexy. it’s almost as sexy as annie lennox’s money can’t buy it.

gossip reminds me a little bit of one of my all-time favorite bands, alphabeat. so i tweeted to both of them that they should do a collaboration and alphabeat replied to me. this made my week!

get it, ri-ri

let me start off by saying that i’m not a fan of kanye west. i had no interest in watching runaway but i was watching jersey shore (don’t judge me) this weekend while doing homework and this suddenly came on. i was too busy with my nutritional assessment, done with the participation of singapregrrl, so i let the tv play. long story short, i ended up loving all of the lights… but the version with rihanna.

get it, ri-ri!

 

so i wanna say “thank you”

i don’t think christina aguilera can get any better than her stripped album and fighter has got to be in my top 3 favorite music videos of all time, if not my top favorite. the song itself would get a lot of playtime around me when i needed to get pumped up and to this day, i still blast the song at ear-splitting levels in my car right before an exam. loves it!

shakira’s world cups (they’re small and humble)

i don’t get it but i love anything shakira.

south africans disagree. shakira’s waka waka (ft. freshlyground) has been chosen as the official world cup anthem and they don’t like it. whatever, i don’t complain when thalia sang in tagalog. you gyrate those hips, girl.
