Okay, So I’ve never been a fan of Rihanna’s vocal ability. Yet she always manage to get good songs so I just had to put up with her. I would be so much happier if her songs were sung by other artists that actually CAN sing (Rachel Stevens would be my first choice to take over her songs). Anyway, back to Rihanna and Disturbia. Another new video from her album, Good Girl Gone Bad. It’s another catchy dance song like S.O.S. and Pon de Replay. If you like those you’re gonna like this, and I suppose this song will go around for weeks (naturally for Rihanna). Moving on to the video, got some make-up, a little creepy, dark and dirty while letting Rihanna look good in it. It’s a nice pop video, but I don’t feel the Disturbia. Bum bum be-dum bum bum be-dum bum….
In emotionally-charged monolithic portraits and dark panoramic landscapes, Picture’s Not Perfect by Melvin Culaba delves into the psyche of the artist and his society. Each canvas plays out almost as a psycho-social mystery, where the viewer seeks to uncover the impetus behind the situational drama and underlying melancholy that permeates each composition.

A: “I know you do. But sometimes we get sad about things and we don’t like to tell other people that we’re sad about them. We like to keep it a secret. Or sometimes we are sad but we don’t really know we are sad. So we say we aren’t sad. But really we are. I mean, you just started a blog that’s all dark and stuff.”
