Season three, American Idol winner (yes, I forgot too) Fantasia Barrino is back with new music. I have to say, I’ve feeling this song for a while and to finally see the visual treatment it got……I’m a happy chick! Reminds me of the music videos of the late 90’s and early 2000’s, fun time for female entertainers. Anywho, feels like I can start rambling at any moment LOL so here you go…the new single from her new album “Side Effects of You.”
“Without Me” Fantasia ft. Kelly Rowland & Missy Elliott
You know those “I remember exactly where I was the first time I heard _____ (insert any music artist) moments”? Well, I’m currently having one of those moments! While watching Saturday Night Live one night, Jessie J was the musical guest. Most of the Twitter world, including myself, didn’t know who this chick in a bodysuit was. Next thing you know, she’s on MTV and the rest is history! Flash forward a couple years, a few haircuts, and a bottle of golden blonde hair dye to now…Jessie J is one of musics’ sweet er slightly rugged voices!
Before we jump into this weeks new music video…..lets go over this interesting tidbit….
Over the weekend, while many of us where trying to stay cool in this heat wave, Kelly Rowland was out in a boat. By far one of the weirdest celeb stories I’ve read recently. Kelly was on a tour boat, um touring the area of Provincetown, Mass, when the captain became disoriented. A captain…disoriented…at sea. Nope, that can’t be good at all! Luckily and very thankfully, everyone was pulled to safety by the Coast Guard and were all a-ok! Get details on the incident over on Huffington Post.
I’m so glad Ms. Kelly is ok because I couldn’t go on without hearing her wonderful voice! Here she is with her new single “Dirty Laundry” airing out all types of gossipy stuff we never knew about! Find more music on her new album “Talk A Good Game” out now.
Ready to turn up with me this Thursday?! Time to tune in and get a dose of fresh hip hop from rapper Eve. Her new single and official video for “Eve” (which is explicit) is featured down below. Always game for new music from female rappers…glad Eve is back to bless us once again.
Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and all of you great dads out there enjoyed your Father’s Day!
I know I’ve been a tad lackadaisical with posting lately and here’s my apology…truly sorry. Between working on and looking for writing gigs to support my shopping habit, my gusto for purging creative content has fallen off. Don’t fret friends! For I’m getting back into the swing of things, you guys are my motivation!
Alrighty, enough excuses…grab your coffee and bagel…here’s your morning linkage!

You see that rock of an engagement ring she’s wearing, yes THAT rock, well she temporarily lost it earlier this week. I….would….die! Apparently, the engaged singer forgot to put the ring on before performing over the weekend and couldn’t find them later in the day. Good news is…she found her diamonds! Check out more of the story over on USA Today.
Hey stylish sweets! Since I had some technical difficulties this week aka my power adapter cord for my laptop completely fizzled out while typing! Talk about a disaster! Luckily, I was able to give you guys a taste of the Met Gala via mobile blogging. It’s amazing how technology can fail and create all at the same damn time! Speaking of technology, Curves and Coffee will undergo an overhaul in the coming weeks. Definitely time for a fresh new look so stay tuned and I’ll keep you updated.
