The Boys Are Back: US5

The boys are definitely back! US5‘s (Though it’s really 4 now with the departure of Chris Watrin) new song for High School Musical 3 is now hitting the world with its music video.  It’s not a song that I like but I’m just glad US5 is back again.

Pink’s Life After Divorce: So What

Ladies and gentlemen, it’s been a long time but the wait is worth it. Listen to Pink’s So What, produced by Max Martin. This new single solidifies her position as pop’s rock girl with a stomper that includes blaring guitars, subtle synth flicks and a hooky chorus that will hit you with flue-like infection.  “So What” deals with life after marriage as Pink makes several references to her divorce of Corey Hart after his rumored infidelity. The video for the single will premier on August 22 and will show the singer riding up and down the Sunset Strip in a lawn mover.

And yes, just like Stupid Girl, there is a reference to Jessica Simpson.

Scissor Sister Jake Shears Hanging Out on BUTT

Scissor Sister Jake Shears will be featured on the cover of the coming issue of BUTT, the quarterly gay journal which is equal parts raunch and literary interviews. This time it’s by the fabulous designer/photographer Hedi Slimane. This fall issue – no. 24 – will be out late August. With loads of contributions by BUTT readers and interviews with Jake Shears from New York, Rosa von Praunheim from Berlin, Will Munro from Toronto and ‘Your Big Dick Host’ from Brooklyn.

Uh…hanging out literally.

Crush:David Archuleta

Here is American Idol runner-up David Archuleta’s new single.

Warning: extremely addictive pop ballad.

Moon Crying and Do Me More

Divas in Japan are going all out this summer. With Ayumi Hamasaki’s world tour on the way, Namie Amuro and Kumi Koda have both released their new singles and videos. Amuro’s Do Me More is a catchy dance hit following her previous Black Diamond and I’d say it’s inspired by Gwen Stefani and Timbaland (watch the video and you’ll know what I mean). Koda’s Moon Crying is a sad ballad about a lover’s death. Miss Koda has sure changed her style from sexy pop diva to ballad queen in her past few albums. I think I like her being a diva more.

P.S. Koda should never be on tv without make-up again, ever!

Disturbia Never Looked So Good

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….
