Take 5 Friday: Poetic Justice

Friday, September 25, 2009

1. Spreading Ledisi Love To The Parents: Good news. I have converted my father, the Audio Dad, into a Ledisi fan. I should get a Nobel Peace Prize shouldn't I? Or at least get an award from President Obama...or a cookie cake. I have to hand it to my parents for being knowledgeable in music, even well into the 2000's. I don't know about anyone else, but sharing music with my parents is just as important as sharing it with others. I dunno, maybe its just me. So what makes my parents so musically connected? Well...My mom makes a point to call me whenever she sees a music artist on TV (Her telling me about Maxwell one day was really funny..."This singer, he was named after some coffee...?"). As for my Dad, he is attached to his Zune player and plays Nelly Furtado and John Legend in his office...bless them. To celebrate my victory, take a look see at Ledisi rockin' a fierce jacket as she grooves to the swangin' "Turn Me Loose" on The Wendy Williams Show.

2. "Single Ladies", Annoying No More: First, they made Rihanna's "Take A Bow" sound like an actual song, now, the TV show, Glee has done the unimaginable, they have made me ENJOY a Beyonce song. This so plush, silly and hella camp.

3. Poetry Reading With Mariah Carey:
"If we were two Legos even the graduating class of Harvard University 2010 couldn't put us back together again"
She is a regular Raphael De La Ghetto, isn't she? This lyric is just a sneak peek at what other lyrical treasures are to come from Mariah Carey's Memoirs. Doing this review is going to be fun.

4. Prince Hypnotizes You With His Eyes and His YouTube Page: Wait, a darn pinkin' minute...when did Prince do this James Bond opening theme styled video for "Crimson and Clover"? Oh, it was back in April...but wait, he has a YouTube page now?? And the videos are embeddable?? Somehow this feels like a joke. A big sexy n' funky joke.

5. Whitney Houston's Million Dollar Worthy Looks: Yes, Whitney Houston was on Oprah last week, but its still a ravishing interview to go back to. Whitney revealed all kinds of things from instructing Oprah on how to roll up a "good" joint, how mother, Cissy Houston called ex-husband, Bobby Brown "Satan", and what she was doing all that time she was away from the music scene (FYI: She was sitting in her room, getting high and listening to Gospel music...just like everyone else on their downtime). See such amazing stuff. But the best thing about the interview was Whitney's facial expressions whenever she was answering Oprah's tidal wave of questions. I wanted to do a list of the best Whitney looks from that interview, but I'm not savvy enough to make animated .gifs and the like. Thankfully, someone took the time to do what I had hoped to create, and it's glorious...or should I say Whit-tastic!? Erm...

My favorite facial expression:
