Sex In The City Trailer Courtesy of Yahoo

Yahoo! Just put up the trailer for a major “must see” movie on my very short list of movies to “must see” and I just had to do my part to pass it on.  You know, I just cried and cried during the final episode of “Sex and the City” on HBO, as it seemed that all the girls had gotten her fairytale ending and in, what I would guess is, true New York fashion.  Of course, being a true Southern girl, I don’t have much to go on but that’s how I would imagine it.  But anywho, I am dying to see this movie. I may even round of the girlfriends and make a girl’s day of it…you know no kids, no husbands or boyfriends just shopping, spa, dinner and this movie.

Though I have not been yammering about it nonstop throughout the season doesn’t mean that I have not been watching it as if my life depended on it. Now that it down to the “real” final three, I’m ready to weigh in. I really hated that Chris went home, but I thought that Ramey deserved to be in the top 3…of course I thought that I Sweet Pea deserved to be in the top 3…I felt bad for her when she had to go home because she was so close to her life’s dream but…well somebody had to go.

I know everyone is rooting for Christen because he/she is such a “fierce” character and competitor but he’s also the stereotypical vision of what everyone thinks a designer should be…eccentric, loud, feminine…gay. His talent as a designer can’t be denied but I’m pulling for Jillian who is more artsy in terms of a designer but I love her style.

….I was just over at Bravotv.com and it looks like Sweet Pea will be showing at Bryant Park…I don’t know how but check out this like and get a look at the Final Collections of Chris, Rami, Christian, Sweet Pea and Jillian at http://www.bravotv.com/Project_Runway/season/4/final_collections

From the looks of these collections Christians should be the winner hands down!

The Way That I Love You by Ashanti

Okay so I’m on a video kick this week…sue me!

Anyway, I think most people will agree that when Ashanti released that “Switch” song featuring her reported boyfriend Nelly, it looked like it may have been time for Ashanti to just give it up. But in true fighter fashion Ashanti is coming back with a vengeance! Her voice is really suited for this type of whiny, heart-broken love song. I guess she was tired of people saying she was washed up and suffering from a severe case of Beyoncitis, some fictious disease cook up by some Beyonce fanatic as a reason why no other R&B singer could get a foot in the game. Besides if nothing else she’s always got her body tight and she a beautiful girl…and we know in America that’s 50% of your selling power right there. I like Ashanti and if she wants to get her Diva status back in tack she needs to stick with this type of music because it works for her…oh and Mariah could really take some tips from this girl on how to dress sexy without looking like a slut.

Touch My Body by Mariah Carey

First things first, I absolutely LOVE Mariah Carey and think she is one of the best vocalist of our time…that being said. Why does she always feel the need to dress like a $5 dollar whore? Seriously. Her voice alone will sell any record she puts out so why in God’s name does she feel compelled to show her T&A at every opportunity?

I know the video is supposed to be a dream sequence from the point of view of the nerdy guy in the video or at least that what Mariah said when she premiered the video on BET’s 106 and Park, where she looked halfway decent wearing black leather pants and black lowcut halter top. That being considered, the video doesn’t even go with the song and is clearly just a vehicle to showcase her weight loss…which is understandable because if I lost weight I’d want to show it off to the world too. But making the same video over and over again wearing different versions of the same silver dress is getting a little old.

We all know that sex sells…that’s a given. It’s also a given that talents sells as well. I mean, Celine Dion sold a shitload of albums and we didn’t have to be subjected to her Victoria Secrets every time she flashed across the screen and let me just add a thank god for that one. Mariah could sing the paint off the walls if she had to and has been a top seller since the biggest debate about her was whether she were black of white. Even through her failed marriage, suspected romances with famous men and touch with lunacy, her talent as a singer has never been and will never be questioned or denied.

There’s also the “If you got it, flaunt it crowd” and them I say…KISS MY ASS…Mariah is pushing up on 40 whether she wants to accept it or not and she should know by now how to flaunt it without flashing it. This type of sexy is for someone in her early 20s who is just realizing the sexual power of her breast and bootie, whereas someone in her 30s and definitely her 40s should know how to demonstrate her sexy without putting it all out there on display.

Like I said, I LOVE Mariah but damn! Put some clothes on!

Clumsy by Fergie

Yes, I’m back! The mind of Ms. Mills has been at a stand still for quite some time now, but Gawd it’s good to be back. The are so many topics that need my opinion that I hardly know where to start…but I’ll figure it out, lol.

I leave you with yet another annoying infectious tune from Fergie. She has the uncanny ability to make the stupidest songs a hit. It’s amazing! The truth is that she still hasn’t sung a song that showcases her true vocals. I appreciated her voice so much more when she sang with Wild Orchid but whatever make a girl a millionaire, I guess. Good for her!
