“Sex is a part of nature. I go along with nature.”

 

What Do Women Want?

by Kim Addonizio

 

” I want a red dress.

I want it flimsy and cheap,

I want it too tight, I want to wear it 

until someone tears it off me.

I want it sleeveless and backless,

this dress, so no one has to guess

what’s underneath. I want to walk down

the street past Thrifty’s and the hardware store 

with all those keys glittering in the window, 

past Mr. and Mrs. Wong selling day-old 

donuts in their café, past the Guerra brothers 

slinging pigs from the truck and onto the dolly, 

hoisting the slick snouts over their shoulders. 

I want to walk like I’m the only

woman on earth and I can have my pick. 

I want that red dress bad.

I want it to confirm

your worst fears about me,

to show you how little I care about you 

or anything except what

I want. When I find it, I’ll pull that garment 

from its hanger like I’m choosing a body 

to carry me into this world, through 

the birth-cries and the love-cries too, 

and I’ll wear it like bones, like skin, 

it’ll be the goddamned

dress they bury me in.”

 

“Oops, I did it again”

“Cause to lose all my senses

That is just so typically me.”

Britney Spears

Here is the VMA performance from 2000 that catapulted Britney Spears from pop princess to icon status.

This is how the good, all American girl next door became a full fledged sex symbol overnight.

She’s been through hell and back both professionally and personally, but she’s still always managed to persevere and return to the stage an even greater force than before.

And you know why?..

..”It’s Britney, bitch.”

The sexiest thing you’ll see today.

Aliya Janell and Joie Chavez are my absolute favorite dancers right now! Aliya is the choreographer and main teacher for Queens N’ lettos based in L.A. She opens up the video front and center, setting the tone for the rest of the video.

Joie is a profession dancer and fitness model in the Los Angeles area as well. But Joie in my opinion, is the main attraction here. She’s the one in the second group, wearing black thigh highs and baseball cap. She just oozes sex appeal and confidence. I love it!

I know this video has now gone viral and has well over a million views on both Instagram and YouTube, landing them the opportunity to perform this dance live alongside Tank, at the soul train awards recently.

 

 

 

Demi Lovato: Simply Complicated – Official documentary

I loved Demi Lovato’s documentary on YouTube titled “simply complicated”. It’s such an honest and vulnerable interview. She candidly speaks on her personal demons and the incredible resiliency she found within herself to overcome them.

I really respected her vulnerability and I personally related to many of the struggles she’s experienced as a young woman still trying to find her way.

For me, the most powerful and touching part of the documentary was when she opened up about the pain she felt over the tremendous loss of her one true love, Wilmer Valderama.

I have to admit, I teared up watching her her recount the moment she met Wilmer and how his love and support helped her through the darkest times of her life. She explains the painful reality of codependent love and the disappointing realization that sometimes even the most electrifying soul connections aren’t always intended to last. It still doesn’t stop her from confessing to the world her undying love for the man she says saved her in so many ways.

It’s also enduring to listen to her explain her conflicted emotions over maintaining a positive outlook on life today in spite of the pain she feels over the loss of that relationship and her ongoing struggle to maintain a life of sobriety.

Lessons learned. Bridges burned.

Demi is such a huge talent with an even bigger heart. I’ve always loved her as an artist but I’ve gained an even deeper respect for her as a human being. She’s so inspiring and I hope to catch her on tour this upcoming year.

Here’s an excerpt from the documentary along with the video of the entire interview below.

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=QSw7qGO4cfw

“I’ve never loved anybody like I loved Wilmer and like I still love Wilmer.”

“When I met him and laid eyes on him for the first time I was in hair and make up. He came and sat down and I was like, I love this man and I have to have him, but I was only seventeen.”

“I think it was love at first sight. And I don’t really believe in that, but I believe that it happened.”

“I do have moments where it’s late at night and I’m lonely and I wonder if I made the right decision because love is a gamble. I don’t know if I’ll lose him for the rest of my life.

“I think my heart’s always with Wilmer, I think it was with Wilmer, and think that it is with Wilmer and I think that it will be with Wilmer. Because you don’t share six years with a person and not give them a piece of your heart and vice versa. Like, I’m pretty sure I’m not gonna find someone that compares to him, but I’m trying to keep an open heart and an open mind when it comes to that.

“The spark’s never faded but I have issues that I haven’t conquered yet that I know I won’t conquer if I’m relying on somebody else to take care of the loneliness.”

“One way” by 6lack and T-Pain has me feeling some type of way.

We still haven’t even been to each other’s house

But baby that could wait for another time

I never been one to fuck up the vibe

Though I might fuck up your life

My favorite dancer/choreographer by far is Aliyah Janell, the woman in thigh high black boots and orange hat. She’s got a pretty big following on Instagram and YouTube if you want to check her out. There’s no doubt that her talent and passion really bring this sexy choreography to life.

“O, swear not by the moon, th’ inconstant moon..”

The man in the moon must really be missing me tonight because he’s glowing, bigger and brighter than normal; no longer hiding behind the fog of clouds or acting seemingly distant like the countless nights before. It’s almost like he’s trying to catch my attention, pull me back in and make me believe that he might be close enough to touch.

Forever my December.

As the music softly plays in the background, I grab my glass of Cabernet and watch the puff of smoke fill the air as it escapes my lungs. I’ll willingly give into him yet again, knowing he is the one who has loved me the purest because he has loved me the longest. And how could I ever deny something so magnetic, so captivating and so perfectly imperfect?..

You and I both know the others were just shooting stars, but you, you will always be my beloved but inconstant moon.

Taylor Swift & her Reputation: Look what you made her do

She’s a complicated, passionate, honest, smart, angry, and vengeful kind of mess, but her fans adore her for it. Long gone are the days of sweet country love songs about boys who left her heartbroken with teardrops on her guitar. The “new Taylor” is like an erupted volcano; spilling over with emotions of hurt, anger and the purging of lackluster ex lovers who have undoubtedly crossed her. Her insistence on telling her unapologetic truth through music along with her over the top artistic expressions doesn’t seems to be letting up anytime soon either. Like it or not, Taylor Swift has taken every stone thrown at her and used it to build her own unique pathway within the music industry. And who wouldn’t love to get even with an ex, while capitalizing on the pain and getting paid out millions? Seems to me that Taylor has learned the art of illusion, seduction and manipulation and has used it to her full advantage in the media and with men alike. Love her or hate her, she’s still making headlines as one of the highest paid and most controversial female performers of this generation.

“I did something bad” is a combination of airing dirty laundry, cold revenge and gloating in the ever present, unfiltered truth. Miss Swift owns her new identity as the heartbreaker and kills her previous reputation as the heartbroken good girl. No longer the victim, she seems to have taken on the personalities of all the calloused men that have betrayed her and forced her to become the heroin of her own love story.

The single even boasts the sound of gunshots being fired during the chorus, as if to say, “you’ve taken your shots, now I’m here taking mine.” The bold lyrics are straight to the point and in this stripped down cover you’re able to keep the focus on each jaded word. It has received plenty of praise from the public as well as Taylor Swift herself. Tony winner Cynthia Erivo and Wicked actress Shoshana Bean give new life to the most talked about song featured on the singer’s Reputation album, released last Friday.

I never trust a narcissist

But they love me

So I play ’em like a violin

And I make it look oh so easy

‘Cause for every lie I tell them

They tell me three

This is how the world works

Now all he thinks about is me

I can feel the flames on my skin

Crimson red paint on my lips

If a man talks shit, then I owe him nothing

I don’t regret it one bit, ’cause he had it coming

They say I did something bad

Then why’s it feel so good?

They say I did something bad

But why’s it feel so good?

Most fun I ever had

And I’d do it over and over and over again if I could

It just felt so good, good

I never trust a playboy

But they love me

So I fly with him all around the world

And I let them think they saved me

They never see it comin’

What I do next

This is how the world works

You gotta leave before you get left

I can feel the flames on my skin

He says, “Don’t throw away a good thing”

But if he drops my name, then I owe him nothin’

And if he spends my change, then he had it comin’

They’re burning all the witches, even if you aren’t one

They got their pitchforks and proof

Their receipts and reasons

They’re burning all the witches, even if you aren’t one

So light me up (light me up), light me up (light me up)

Light me up, go ahead and light me up (light me up)

Light me up (light me up), light me up (light me up)

Light me up (light me up), light me up (light me up)
