all i could do was cry

I think we all know how big my love for Beyonce is, and it has now 
been further extended by the release of her Motown-style tribute tracks
for her latest film, Cadillac Records. Here is her cover of Etta James's 
"All I Could Do Was Cry". Definitely one for the shower ladies!

edie sedgwick




Edith Minturn "Edie" Sedgwick was an American actress, socialite, model, and heiress who starred in several of Andy Warhol's short films in the 1960's. She was born in Santa Barbara, California to Alice Delano de Forest and Francis Minturn Sedgwick, a philanthropist, rancher, and sculptor. In March 1965, Sedgwick met artist and avant-garde film-maker Andy Warhol at Lester Persky's apartment. She began going to The Factory regularly in March 1965 with her friend, Chuck Wein. During one of those visits, Warhol was filming Vinyl, his interpretation of the novel A Clockwork Orange. Despite Vinyl's all-male cast, Warhol put Sedgwick in the movie. She also made a small cameo appearance in another Warhol film, Horse, when she entered towards the end of the film. Although Sedgwick's appearances in both films were brief, they generated so much interest that Warhol decided to create a vehicle in which she would star.

I'm a big fan of Edie; her beauty, her acting and her natural ability to shock and wow is something I admire.

bat for lashes - sad eyes

I don't like the things you don't say
Leaving it for such a long long time
Why do you show me those sad sad eyes
Each time you decide to pass on by

And when you smile those sad eyes
Look sadder and sadder still

Autumns you know sad eyes
Makes me laugh and laugh and more
I'll have a bath or make the dinner and then I'll go wait for a long long time
But still you haven't passed my door

And when you smile those sad eyes
Look sadder and sadder still

I can tell that you're lonely
But it seems now
There's nothing you want me to do
So I won't try to take the sadness from those eyes that I love
Leave it open for someone else to

And when you smile those sad eyes
Look sadder and sadder still

Trying to hold it together
Keep my love as light as a feather
Sad eyes baby it's been such a long time
Keep my heart breaking in the dark
Come and spend the day

Now I understand that X Factor, and all of its its sister programs are cheesy.com, but when a performance like this comes along, you really can't disrespect the fact that it finds raw talent! Alexandra deserved to win, because her voice compares to those such as this Beyonce performance. Her voice is world-class and she will be a star, just wait. 
Note: Beyonce Knowles is unbelievably good live.

Music is a skill-required love, and anyone who says they "like a bit of everything" clearly hasn't paid it enough attention.

story

I've decided to begin writing a story. How far I will get with the story I do not know; judging my common ability to give up on things. But I hear writing a novel is quite life-changing, and i'm up for changing my life.

I don't like Madonna, she really pisses me off in fact. But even I cannot disagree with how fantastic she looks in the new Louis Vuitton campaign.

ann summers, what a babe

I ordered a pocket pleaser on friday. Very excited about its arrival. If it doesn't erm please my pocket, I will be very upset. Also ordered a book of foreplay tips; now regretting the purchase as the price tag was greater than the need I have for it. No man, no foreplay. However, I have just started reading a book named 'Gigolo', which I must say, is encouraging me to make an order for one.

affection addiction

I'm currently in the middle of a casual fling with an ex of mine.  He's perfect for me, and we both know it, but neither of us can ever bring ourselves to take a step further and commit. His reason being that he's a male, and males shy away from commitment; my reason being that I'm desperate for a relationship with someone nice so I don't want to push him away by trapping him. 
   See the main problem in our relationship, is that he knows that he could have me anytime, one phone-call and i'd be at his door, because quite frankly, I am and always have been mad about him. This time rounds a bit different though, i'm trying to play it cool; never call him, wait at least an hour before I reply to his texts, not telling anyone about us, and most importantly not giving into to his quite frustrating sexual advances. 
   Last night, however, this got me thinking. Why am I so desperate for something more all the time? I've figured it out. I should be a psychologist..

I am addicted to affection. And there's no way out.

little girls

Now I am a calm person. I don't let things affect me, and I certainly DO NOT get involved in petty arguements. But, for the first time in my life, I was very close to doing so the other day. 
   Some little tramp (we'll call her Slut One) decided to have a go at me, over facebook. That for me is a no-go. Embarrasing. Immature, and very, very lame. This, however wasn't the worst thing. She happens to be the best friend of the little bitch (we'll call her Slut Two) who my ex-boyfriend cheated on me with. These two girls, to be fair, are in a lucky position anyway. Me being me, took the cheating well, dumped my boyfriend, and had only a small go at Slut Two, and then moved on. So they got off pretty lightly.
   My best friend (we'll call her BF) decided she wanted to say something to Slut Two about her being a slut. So BF did exactly this. Nothing to do with me, whatsoever. Slut One, decided to bring me into it, being the div that she is. Slut One decided to write on my facebook - so that everyone could see - that in her opinion, I was 'still obsessed' with my ex, and that I am a 'slut'. 
1. I could not give two shits about my ex.
2. I am not a slut.
This is where usually I would simply delete the comment and move on. But something inside me boiled up uncontrollably. I suddenly wanted to kill her.
   So I rung my ex, and informed him of this want to assassinate the little bitch. He - knowing I would follow through with this execution - attempted to calm me down with a beautiful one-liner, "Don't sink to their level babe! I know you're better than them". 
   At this point I hung up, deleted the comment, and remembered who I was, a much better person that Slut One, Slut Two and MY PRICK OF AN EX-BOYFRIEND.

I GOT TO GET ONE OF THESE

808's & heartbreak


I know i'm late but only just got back on this blog thing. I got to admit, I thought Kanye was going downhill for a while, but after seeing him on the 12th at the O2 and then hearing the leaked album, KANYE IS BACK ON TOP!


808's & Heartbreaks:
1. Say You Will
2. Welcome To Heartbreak ft. Kid CuDi
3. Heartless
4. Amazing ft. Young Jeezy
5. Love Lockdown
6. Paranoid ft. Mr Hudson
7. RoboCop
8. Street Lights
9. Bad News
10. See You In My Nightmares ft. Lil Wayne
11. Coldest Winter
12. Pinocchio Story (Freestyle @ Singapore)

BEST tracks are easily Street Lights.. and Welcome To Heartbreak.
This is Kanye's most emotional and raw album, and although there is a lot of the whole T Pain style singing, it's a brilliant album, that is easily Kanye's most original work.

GET IT NOW on iTunes or from all good stores. (haha how cheesy)

my dad

Today, I had a blazing row with my Dad.
I've decided to go to the London College of Fashion to study Fashion Journalism (if I get in), so he decided to give me a massive lecture on how its a stupid idea, how I won't get anywhere and how I need to be more open-minded and consider my options. He went on to tell me how its not even up to me to decide, because he's my father, and he has ultimate say over what I do.
Excuse the outburst but, FUCK OFF DAD.
No-one can tell me not to follow my dreams, especially not him. My father dropped out of school and did nothing, and now he's in a dead-end job going nowhere. Don't get me wrong, he's happy, but 'happy' isn't the future I want. I want 'amazing'. I want 'fabulous'. I want my dream, and whether he wants me to or not, I will go to LCF and I will become a Fashion Journalist, because it's what I want for me.
Sometimes I really hate him, and today is up there on the scale, right at the top.

good girl gone bad?

I was just listening to my iPod on shuffle, and one of the worst songs in the history of music making appeared on the screen, 'Rihanna - Good Girl Gone Bad'. I'm confused why it's even on my pod to be honest. But, anyway, I sat through and listened to it, and paid close attention to what I assumed would be cheesy, cliche filled, crass lyrics. However, they weren't. Well that's a lie. They were. But they had some strange meaning that I seemed to be able to relate to. Here's the chorus:

"Easy for a good girl to go bad
And once we gone
Best believe we've gone forever
Don't be the reason
Don't be the reason
You better learn how to treat us right
'Cause once a good girl goes bad
We gone forever"

Now, yes, I know, they are terrible lyrics. But, for once, they do have some message. I'd never relised until today, until right now, that I have fallen victim and become a 'good girl gone bad'. It's true.
I used to be - before the start of my first real relationship - a nice girl, with morals, who loved being at home and with friends doing 'nice' things. But, since that boy decided to dump me - breaking my heart, and leaving me crying for weeks on end - i've flipped. And it took Rihanna for me to notice this! I've slept with 3 boys since my downfall (which happened a year ago at the mere age of 16), flitted amongst numerous males at parties, and dated various men along the way also. I swear alot. I drink alot. I waste money ALOT. I go to parties, get a bit tipsy, fall on some boy and take him upstairs. I am a good girl, gone bad, and i've only just realized.
   When someone hurts you so bad, you fight for any little glimpse of a bit of comfort from anyone, and that's what I did. I searched endlessly for any tiny bit of love I could grab, be it simple flirting, a cheeky snog, or full on sex. I threw away my virginity, foolishly, to the first boy that came along, and from then on, saw sex as a simple act of comfort, not love.
And now, when relationships come along, I chuck myself at the male, and let them in too soon. I end up getting upset when a simple month-long fling doesn't turn out right, and I add another notch to my bedpost along the way.
I hadn't realized how stupid this was until I listened to Rihanna's little tune. The very first boy, the only boy, that i've ever loved, seems to have destroyed me, from what was once a nice young girl, to a dirty, almost sex-hungry, emotional woman. And I am definitely not a woman yet; 17 years is certainly not enough to class myself as grown.
   So, thanks to Rihanna, yes let's bow down to her! I am going to reform. 'Once a good girl goes bad, we gone forever' .. No way.. I'm out of this lifestyle, and i'm going back to my good girl roots. No sex before marriage! .. Well maybe not that far.

welcome

and although my pride
ain't easy to disturb
you sent me flying
when you kicked me to the curb
with your battered jeans
and your beastie tee
now i can't work like this
with you next to me


welcome to beastie tee..
enjoy.
