When I went to visit my family on Christmas, my sister told me that my birthday gift wasn't avaliable and she would have to have it shipped to my house. I wondered what she was going to give me. A few weeks later, she told me what I was finally gonna get for my birthday; "Michael Jackson's This Is It." I was excited because my family knows how much I love Michael Jackson and she made sure that the DVD was delivered the day it was released by texting me and letting me know how far the UPS truck was from my house, and an hour later a sexy young man delivered it to my door. Like many music lovers, I'm still sad that he passed before he was scheduled to make his return to the stage, but I'm so grateful for Kenny Ortego for perserving the clips and allowing the fans to see how serious MJ was to make sure the show would be fantastic. The film also captures many of Jackson's characteristics including his professionalim, humility, sense of humor and his ability to have people enjoy his art and work hard to enchance theirs.
The musical adventures with Jackson's hired dancers speaking about auditioning, thankng Michael for the opportunity and how he inspired them to pursue their goals, followed by a voice-over of Ortego the show's director, speaking to the staff on how the opening number was going to consist against flashes of photographs and fireworks and before you can say wow, Michael comes from a robot suit dressed in a silver blazer, blue T-shirt and red pants and goes into his concert highlight "Wanna Be Startin' Somethin'" allowing the music to take over his body and dancing. After performing the bridge, the film fades to him telling the musicians that they need to make the song funkier.
"I'm not feeling that part enough " Jackson said as he demonstrated in a beat-box style" before the film fades to him performing "This Is It" and show him arriving for his press conference where he informs the crowd that the performances would be his last ones.
"I'll see you in July" he said as he waved and left.
Next you see Jackson's dancers popping up from the stage, and joining Michael on stage for the bridge where they gave it they all as they danced on a slanted part of the stage if they were at an actual live show.
The show's main cheoragpher Travis Payne talks about the auditioning process and is shown in various clips sitting with Michael watching the dancers strut their stuff
"If you don't have that ooze that comes out of you, then you won't get that job" Jackson's assistant cherographer said.
Up next is the performance of "Jam" which had more bass then the original version and features the dancers in athletic clothes performing a stepping miliatry style routine with Jackson along with the intro of Jackson's single "Can't Let Her Get Away."
Another hot number is seeing Jackson rehearse with the dancers routines of "Bad" and
"They Don't Care Abou Us" which for the latter feature various clips of the dancers dressed in street clothes and black miliatry outfits, while Jackson dancers with gutarists Orianthi Panagaris, who brings fire to her solo adding more funk to the original licks. What I like about the performance was the clip of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr's "I Have A Dream" speech incorporated into the show along with Jackson singing the chorus to his single "HIStory" and the dancers doing a shoulding shaking routine to the sound of "She Drives Me Wild" and "Why You Wanna Trip On Me."
One of my favorite clips was seeing Michael perform his classic "Human Nature" with accapella with background singer Dorian Holley and keyboardist Michael Braden going over keys with the Motown legend.
"You sound great MJ" Holley tells Jackson and he was right. Seeing Michael rehearse that beautiful song was breathtaking (though it would have been more beautiful had he incorporated the vocals of SWV, who sampled this song for their hit "Right Here/Human Nature" which was also featured on the soundtrack of "Free Willy" the first album that was released on his record label MJJ Records in 1993). Especially when he's dressed in two different costumes shown in split screen.
The prep/performance of "Smooth Criminal" is hot. In addition to the footage of him at the front row of a Rita Haywood concert, it also captures his romantic ballad "Break of Dawn" in highlights and it also captures his timing with the crew as well as his ability to avoid conflicts with his staff, who had a slight misunderstanding with Jackson and the dancers about when they should start to perform. You get to see Jackson vibe with his musical director while rehearsing "The Way You Make Me Feel" during a sound check, where Braden adds Reggae elements to the songs extended intro.
"I wanna hear the song the way I wrote it" he told Braden, who replied jokingly with "It needs a little more booty."
"A little more booty?" Jackson asked while laughing.
The Jackson 5 medley features colorful backgrounds and a designed of the group's famous logo, and Jackson smiling during the rehearsal and informing that they needed to adjust the sound in his earplugs before performing a nice rendition of "I'll Be There" which contains various clips of him performing with his brothers including their performance of the Motown 25 special. Another highlight is watching the dancers dsiplay their moves to The Jackson's platnium classic "Shake Your Body (Down To The Ground)" before the legend returns to the stage and leads the dancers into the song's famous routine.
Viewers will get a chance to see Michael display his sensual and romantic side while performing his classic ballad "I Just Can't Stop Loving You" with singer Judith Hill. Making the performance sexy is the dim lights and Michael using his index finger to ask Hill to come close to him in a seducitve way. The crowd was so moved that they wanted MJ to belt out the song.
"I'm warming up to the moment" Jackson said trying to hold his composure.
"I gotta save my voice."
A funny moment was when the band started playing an Gospel number while Ortego jumped onstage and dance, making Jackson laugh.
"Thriller" was over the top with the special effects of ghosts floating around the arena and an unreleased rap by Vincent Price. Another highlight is watching Jackson and the dancers leaving the stage as the band played his single "Threatned" (A great way to let the tabloids know I'm not the one to be messed with).
The run through of "Black or White" displayed another form of Jackson's humility, when he apologizes to the band for misleading them throughout the performance, and he instructed guitarist Pangaris to continue playing if the band stops.
"Hit your highest note. It's your time to shine" Jackson says before the film cuts to interviews and performances of her and Tommy Organ.
"Earth Song" shows his humanitarian side. In addition to show him riding on the ramp, it also shows films of animals and a little girl in playing in the forest, it also had a voice over of Michael speaking about his how upset he was about the destruction of the planet.
"The planet is like a fever. This is our time to fix this problem we have. It's up to us."
This DVD would not be complete with out seeing Michael prepping his classic performance of "Billie Jean" which had the crew dancing and cheering him on, and while sadly we didn't get to see him do the famous moonwalk, it was great to see him adding extra moves that makes people wonder what did Justin Timberlake do to bring sexy back.
The adventures ends with Michael thanking the crew for their hard work and telling the dancers not to allow fear to enhance their gifts and crafts, and as they hug, the films fades to Michael performing the classic "Man In The Mirror"
This was a great way to pay homage to a man who's music and dancing is still making an impact on people around the world, and a great way to help fans cope with the loss of a great Icon, who provided the soundtrack for people lives. It was also a great way to show the tabloids his true character (hopefully they will start calling him by his given name), and show today's inspring artists what it really takes to put a show together and hopefully they will see that it take more than getting on stage and looking cute.
Many are still sad that Michael never got the opportunity to return to the stage, but watching this DVD will make you think that you're actually seeing him in concert having a great time.

ON January 14, 1970, Diana Ross & The Supremes took the stage at the Frontier in Las Vegas and performed their last show together, marking the end of an era and the end of Motown's top selling female group , who had scored 12 # hit records and became the first feamel group to top the UK charts with their classic "Baby Love."
When it was announced that the lead singer Diana Ross was leaving to pursue a solo career, many were sad including original member Mary Wilson, who stayed with the group unti they disbanded and hiring Cindy Birdsong, who had replaced the group's original member and founder Florence Ballad 2 years earlier.
Well fans who were lucky enought to attend that concert had some great memories and though I didn't make my debut until 11 months later, whever I listen to the Farewell album, I can sfell a sense of saddness because they never had a proper farewell tour, and many had wondered if both Diana and the group featuring her replacement Jean Terrell could make it. The answer was yes. For a while, the new Supremes were hotten than Diana; the new line-up had scroed four gold records including "Up The Ladder To The Roof" and "Stoned Love" wheile Diane scored a # 1 hit with "Ain't No Mountain High Enough, but the latter didn't have a ntoehr #hit until 3 years later. She did becme a successful actress earning an nomination for her portrayal of Billie Holiday in the hit movie "Lady Sings The Blues."
That concert was filled with great singing and solos by bothe Diana and Mary and featured many guest in the audience including Smokey Robinson and his first wife Claudette, Marvin Gaye and many of the Gordy family, while Ed Sullivan send them a telegram and proclamimed them as the hottest act of the 60's were know becoming two of the hotttest acts of the 70's


I was having an conversation with my Godfather this evening and hea asked me about his favorite British singer Craig David.
"He's workking on new material" I told him.
Wjile we were talking I begasn to reflect on how many artist from over seas (London, Austrailia, Belgium and Africa) made an impact and invaded the states with theri music and since I'm a huge lover of international artist I decided to post a list of my favorite overseas artists

1. Selwyn-First R&B singer to emerge from Austrialia
2. Simon Webbe-British Soul/Folk singer/songwriter/actor and member of UK group Blue
3. Dizze Rascal-British Garage/Hip-Hop MC/producer
4. Dido-British singer/songwriter who sang the hook of her hit "Thank You' on Ememien's hit record "Stan" which created a buzz and forced Arista Records to rerelease her debut album in the states.
5. Akala-British rapper/producer/CEO and the first rapper to perform in Vietnam
6. Human Nature-Austrialian Pop/Soul group, who finally conquered the United States with their ramake of the Barbra Strisand-Barry Gibb classic "Guilty" with rapper Kelly K.A.E. and their 3 CD's of Motown classics.
7. Blue. British Pop/Soul group who scored several hits and recently reunited after taking time off to pursue solo career with Simon Webbe becoming the most successful member.
8. V.S, A group formed by Singer Simon Webbe, who disbanded after they were dropped from their record label. They did record a album called "All Kinds of Trouble" and a hit with the ballad "Love You Like Mad" the group consisted of three males and two females who could singer, rap and dance.
9. Criag David. Award winning and nominated Brithsih singer/songwriter and occasional rapper, who was overlooked by many awrd shows in Britian, which caused many acts including Elton John and U2 to protest.
10. S Club 7 A Pop/Soul group who became a household name with their relevision show and break through hit "Never Had A DreaAm Come True" which peaked at # 10 on the US Pop Charts and did well on the US Adult Comptemporary Charts.

When New Edition released their self-title for MCA Records in 1984, many teenagers and college students played the album including the classic radio hit "I'm Leaving You Again," a smooth ballad written by group members Ricky Bell and Ralph Tresvant, who showcased his maturing vocals on this song that's a favorite among the fans, who, like myself wish that it was released as a single. (His phrasing improved during the song). This first time I heard this song was at one of my neighbor's birthday party, and when I heard the intro I took noticed and fell in love with the song to the point of taping it constantly.
What makes this song beautiful are the keyboard riffs that was sampled for Bow Wow & Ciara's 2005 top charting ballad "Like You," beats and lyrics about telling a girl that though I love to spend time with you, remember I'm in the music industry and I have to go out on the road due to the popular demand of the fans.

Girl I'm leaving you again
And I thought I tell you in
I know how you must feel
But if your love is for real
Try to understand that
I'm in popular demand

Another great part of the song is the ending which has a cute classic soul/do-wop rhyme, while Tresvant performs a falsetto ad-lib.

This is my all time favorite song by New Edition, which showed that they were able to create a beautiful song about trying to balance a love life and a career as a professional singers, and hopefully it will serve as a guide for guys who wanna maintain both. It's also a great song to play at parties.


1. The song wasn't released as a single, but it was a radio hit meaning that it received lots of air play on radio including 98.7 Kiss FM in New York City. It did become a hit in 2005 when rapper Bow Wow and ex-girlfriend singer Ciara sampled this classic for their ballad "Like You," which topped the R&B chars and peaked at # 3 on the Pop charts, going gold with sales of over 500, 000 copies.

2. The song was co-written by group member Ricky Bell and Ralph Tresvant, and it was one of two songs the group wrote on their self-titled double platinum release. The other song was "Kinda Girls We Like" which was written by the whole group.

You know those sayings success is the revenge and look who has the last laugh?
Well many singers and rappers were caught in dramatic situations that caused the media to have field days with their situations as well as put fans in akward situations as to wonder who should they beleive or support. Well the situations these artist were in showed the industry and the world that artist who have heart, strenght and good character comes out on top, while the fans have the last laugh.
Here are my choices

1. LeToya Luckett-Original member of multi-platnium sellling group Destiny's Child.
Ten years ago, when BET premiered the group's video for their Grammy-Award winning hit "Say My Name," many kept their eyes glued to the television set, and when it came to the part where the ladies was doing a famous rolling routine, many including Luckett and La-Tavia Roberson were shocked to learn that they were replaced by Michelle Williams and Farrah Franklin without the proper notification. Luckett and Robertson had issues with management, and when they wrote Matthew a letter saying that they wanted to get seperate managers to help have better communication, Matthew became scared, and instead of handling the situation as a mature adult, he replaced them, which forced them to hit him, Beyonce and Kelly Rowland-Knowles and Columbia Records with lawsuits. The result; both ladies received a settlement for an undisclosed amount, royalties from both of the group's albums as well as their greatest hits CD and a Grammy for "Say My Name" considering the fact that they co-wrote the song and sang background on it.
Success Story: Le-Toya opened a boutique, starting performing at malls, houseparties, and earned a record deal with Captiol Records, and in 2006, her solo album "LeToya" debutted at # 1 on the album charts, while her single "Torn" was named the Top ASCAP single of 2006, due to the sampling of The Stylistics' classic ballard "You Are Everything." The song's video was also # 1 on 106 & Park for 2 months making her the first female to have a video retire since Aaliyah, and the only member of Destiny's Child to have a # 1 video on the BET show. She's also starrred in a play, released her second album "Lady Love" and has two movies dropping this year.
The Last Laugh: LeToya showed the world (and Matthew) that she can sing and she don't have to shake or show her ass to have success.

2. Naturi Naughton-Original member of Award winning trio 3LW
Shortly after the trio dropped their second album, fans started to see the group appear on televison shows without Naturi, leaving many to wonder why she left. Turns out that she didn't like the group and management ideas of having a sexy image considering the fact that they were in their mid teens at the time. She felt that they should grow into womanhood and when they get to a certain age, then go with the sexy look. They was against it, and group members threw made shade at her and caused drama, but the turning point came when they threw mash potatoes in her hair during an arguement at KFC. She filed a lawsuit against the group and management, but decided to take the Vanessa Williams route and drop it, thinking success is the best revenge.
Success Story: She returned to high school, went to college and scored a role in the hit play "Hairspray" with Tevin Campbell and when Sister2Sister founder Jamie Foster Brown saw her at castmate Darlene Love's birthday party, she scheduled an interview with Naturi, who finally gave her side of what went down, and informed the journalist how nobody ever asked for her side of the story. Once the story hit, she received lots of fan support and love, but that was the tip of the iceberg. A year later, she landed the role of a lifetime; portraying Grammy-Award winning rapper Lil' Kim in the hit movie "Notorious" winning more than rave reviews, despite receiving flack from Queen Bee, who felt that she was too Black to play her (In other words, too dark). She also started in the ramake of the classic "Fame" and scored her first solo hit with her rendition of the song.
Last Laugh: Naturi took the high road and starred in a hit musical and two blockbuster films and blossomed into a beautiful woman, while her bandmates are typecasted as Cheeta Girls.

3. Christina Aguleria-Grammy Award winning Soul/Pop singer/Songwriter.
When Chirstina released her first single "Genie In A Bottle," many teenagers was drawn to her looks, while their parents and grandparents were drawn to her Soulful voice. "That girl got Soul" was the response many adults said after hearing her sing. They were right. The Half Latin/Half White singer honed her chops by performing on the Mickey Mouse club and listening to the music of Billie Holiday, Etta James, Whitney Houston, Janet Jackson and James Brown, but her record label wanted to capitlize on the growing Teen Pop market and they had her do songs that was catering to that market as well as having her redo songs in lower ranges, while her former manager had her doing a series of one-nighters that left Christina, her band, dancers and crew physically exhausted. Her wardrobe stylist even said that she had to constanly alter everybody's stage costumes everynight. Things changed when her current managers intervened and told her label the tour was going to be officially canceled for health concerns.
Success Story: After scoring a hit with the remake of the Labelle classic "Lady Marmalade" with Mya, Pink and Lil'Kim the critics began to take notice of her R&B roots, but the label wanted her to contiue being a Pop tart. Christina told her label that she wanted to have more creative control of her next album and she wanted to have more of an R&B and Rock flavor. In other words; she gave RCA an ultimatium; either let me do it my way or let me out my contract! The label granted honored her request and shen she released "Stripped" in the fall of 2002, it became her biggest selling album to date thanks to the hits "Dirrty" and "Beautiful." 5 years later, she performed a soul wrenching tribute to James Brown by performing his classic "It's A Mans World" at the 2007 Grammy Awards.
Last Laugh: Christina showed the industry that music needs to be color-blind and that nobody should have to be placed in a category because of their skin color or gender.

4. Jennifer Hudson-Oscar-Grammy Award winning singer/actress
When Jennifer Hudson appeared on the 3rd season of American Idol, many felt that she was going to win. She lost that title to Fantasia, Simon told her that she wouldn't succed. Jennifer handled it with class, thanking him for the opportunity.
Sucess Story: Jennifer auditioned for the role of Effie White in the film "Dreamgirls" and after being called back several times, she beated out many hopefuls including Fantasia, and not only did the movie become a hit, she became a overnight sensation, winning several awards including an Golden Globe (where she acknowledge the late Supremes' founder Florence Ballard), and an Oscar for best supporting actress. She also performed the movie's theme "And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going" with the original Effie herself; Jennifer Holiday on the 207 BET Awards.
2 years later, Jennifer was presented with A Grammy-Award by her idol Whitney Houston last year, giving her comfort after the death of her maother, brother and newphew.
Last Laugh: She showed Simon that talented and sexy full-figured women can succeed, and you can't keep a good and grand woman down.

5. Adam Lambert-American Idol contestant, and popular singer
Adam Lambert auditioned and competed on American Idol winning the fans and judges including hard to impress Simon, who couldn't say anything bad about him. Simon even complimented the theatre trained singer for his voice and style, and though he made it to the top 2, he wasn't crowned the next American Idol. He did however, secured a record deal and an exclusive cover story for Rolling Stone Magazine where he revealed he was gay. When he performed on the American Music Awards, he gave one hot performance; he kissed his male keyboardist on the lips and placed his head in two of his dancer's crouches. His performance was too hot for ABC to the point where his appearance on "Good Morning America" was canceled.
Success Story: The Early show asked him to appear on their program, and he was later interviewed by Barbra Walters, who he told "yes I'm a homosexual. Deal with it!
Last Laugh: People are starting to finally realize that once you mess woth the gays, you're gonna have consequences to suffer.

6. Pleasure P-Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter and former lead vocalist of Hip-Hop/R&B Group Pretty Ricky.
Pleasure P's strong helped the sexy horny toads score two gold albums and several hits including "Grind On Me," "Age Ain't Nothing But A Number," and "On The Hotline," and performing on major tours arund the world, but by the end of their
2007 tour, Pleasure left the group and sued it's manager for non-payment of royalites and tour money, and secured a solo deal.
Success Story: Plesure released his solo debut The Introduction of Marcus Cooper, scored three hits and Grammy Nominations, and respect as a solo artist, and unlike many who bash their former group members, he took the high road and refuses to judges or talk bad about them as people.
"It's my daddy I fell out with, but I'll always love my brothers" he told Jet Magazine in 2007.
Last Laugh: He was able to do well

7. Mark Curry-Rapper/songwriter and former artist on Bad Boy Records
When aspiring rapper/songwriter Marc Curry met Sean Puffy Daddy Combs in the mid
1990's, he beleived that he was going to become a successful multi-million dollar rapper. He had wrote songs for Puffy and made guest appearances on many of the label's album cuts and singles, creating a buzz and fan base who was anticipating the release of his own solo album. Sadly that never happen. Curry found himself teaching Puffy how to rap and whenever he asked when he would be able to record his album, he was told to wait and it wasn't the right time. Curry later learned that there was no intention for the label to release an album on him and after many years of fighting, he decided to leave the label and industry.
Success Story: After being forced to retire, fans who recognized him wanted to know why he didn't release an album and they also wanted to know the real deal about Puffy and his label. That inspired him to write a book about his experiences with Puffy, who dismissed the book along with Wendy Williams who claims that his story is irrelevant. There were many however who were interested in what he had to say, and while the book didn't become a blockbuster, it began to circulate into book stores such as Borders, Barnes & Nobels, and the Hue-Man book store.
Last Laugh: All comebacks doesn't have to be big and major, and Marc Curry showed people that he had the heart and balls to pen his life story and how shady Puffy is, and whether or not the book becomes a bestseller, the main thing is that the truth is out.

8. Janet-Award winning Icon
Janet Jackson has been a star since she was a child. From acting to singing, she has blossomed into a talented star and sexy woman. In 2004 her career was almost derailed due to an wardrobe malfunction. At the 2004 Superbowl, she and Nsyench lead singer Justin Timberlake performed a performance of Justin's solo hit "Rock Your Body" and right after he sang the line 'you'll be naked by the end of this song' he grabbed her bra off and exposed her breast when in reality he was supposed to grab the leather part of. He got too horny. Many people called in complaining while President Bush added his two cents in. The saddest event that happened with Justin punking out and not showing the Icon who gave his group the opprtunity to open up for her during her Velvet Rope tour, while the Grammy Awards wanted both to appear on the show and apologize. Justin obliged, while Janet refused being that she gave a public apology a few days after the superbowl, which resuleted in the show preventing her from taking part in a tribute to Luther Vandross and many Black Entertainers boycotting and protesting about the unfair treatment the legendary Icon was being treated
Success Story: Miss Janet celebrated her 40th birthday two years later by releasing her long-awaited album "20 Y.O." and rocking the Today Show and the Billboard Music Awards, showing the crowd that she's moved on and you need to focus on the music.
Last Laugh: Miss Janet's current CD Number Ones made history be being one of the first CD's to be released whee all the singles hit # 1 with her current single "Make Me" hitting # 1 on the Dance charts.

Since I'm up, I midas well post somethings I've had on my mind onto this blog.
It seems that people wanna throw shade at President Obama for his reaction about the Nigerian who tried to blow up an airplane headed towards Detroit during the Christmas holiday.

I've heard crazy comments like he wasn't wearing a neck-tie to why did it take him along time to address the issue, to he was to laid-back during his speech.

Give the man credit; People need to be grateful that he took time from his vacation to address the issue and admit that they were mistakes made during the screening of the terrorist and futhter investigation is going to be done.

Barbra Walters calling Michael Jackson's kids mysterious.
I thought that was very tacky for an established journalist to refer to the late Motown Legend and music Icon's kids with that title.
Michael knew what it was like having being chased and followed by photographers, and he and ex-wife Debbie Rowe wanted to create an loving and normal envoirment for his kids, and having their faces covered with makes was a great move to keep the press for trying to cash in on the kids, who were raised well. Whenever I watch the clip of Michael's daughter Paris speaking at the memorial, you can say that her daddy raised her and her brothers right, and I would hope Barbra would show his kids some respect and exept the fact that they're biologically his.

Adam Lambert appearing on the Barbra Walters count down. I liked how he conducted himself and said that whoever he sleeps with doesn't take away from his talent and that people need to deal with him being a homosexual.
I don't get how ABC felt his performance on the American Music Awards was too much, but when Madonna was interviewed on ABC about her "Justify My Love" video, they showed the video in it's entirety uncut and unceansored.

The coverage of Actress/singer Alaina Hall.
When I learned that the star of "227" had died from breast cancer, I was shocked to learned that many of the media outlets including BET didn't mentioned it until many people started to write about it on Face bok and their blogs. It was the true fans, who got the ball rolling, and though I'm sorry that actress Britney Murphy had died, Alainia should have gotten the same amount of coverage being that she was a legend who paved the way for many to today's starlettes.

The MTA attempting to elimante student train and bus passes.
They've been trying to do this stupid act for years, but it always fail.
With billions of people ridng the trasnit on a daily bases, there's really no excuse why the system is always strapped for cash. Trying to eliminate the student fare passes ain't gonna help them get anymore money.
A bad move since many white kids who attend private school in the city rely on public trasnportaion, and when their parents have to use the money they give them for their video games to buy them a monthly metro card, they're gonna get started turning into bad kids and when they start robbing and stealing, it's gonna be hell. Plus most kids from rich families be the main ones partaking in crazy activites such as drinking, smoking, doing drugs and having sex.
IF they wanna help save the system, they need to show Obama the books and stop spending the moeny recklessly and put it to good use


Hey there
I wanna wish everybody a happy 2010.
So far the new year is going good for me so far.
I've been hanging out with cool people with positive vibes and energy and I'm also learning to focus more on the positive aspects of my life. Of course I'm gonna have my ups and downs (who doesn't) but the main goal is to move on from the experience because there will be something greater installed for me.
