2009 AMAs: GaGa’s Crotch-Thing, Rihanna’s White Worm & Glambert’s BDSM Moves

MTV did something right at the 2009 VMAs because it was entertaining and it’s a shame the American Music Awards are in dire need of a few lessons. The show was total garbage. I want those three hours of my life back.

I read an article this morning in the New York Times and I wondered if they were smoking the same junk the producers of the AMAs were.

Seriously?

The post in question, with closed comments, can be found [Read more…]

For this week’s Music Monday, I wanted to make it a little bit more serious. So sure, “Do They Know It’s Christmas?” is one of the best Christmas songs in the history of music and it’s one of my favourite’s, but it’s about music than just music. It’s about giving, sharing, life and heart.

So considering that we’re still in November it’s still early enough to make a difference. Therefore, I wanted to tell you about a great organization called Heifer International that you can donate too this holiday season on someone else’s behalf, rather than buying someone a gift.

I found out about Heifer International last year when my dad donated to them through [Read more…]
