Let It Burn

Recently, I started asking friends at parties what their all time favourite song is. Usually, people enter in a kind of blank stare, hypnotized mode, thinking hard & going back in time through a wormhole. Before I get to bored, waiting for um-teen minutes for an answer, I blare out: “Mine is Burn by Usher.” Most of the time, this is greeted with laughter, disbelief and mockery. I don’t care, ’cause the haters can’t take Burn away from me.

Also, a lot of people don’t seem to remember that I’m in the video. It was a very exciting time in my life when Usher’s manager called and said: “Ush wants and needs you in his next clip.” I just screamed into the phone: “Where is my flight ticket?” and hung up. Next thing you know, I was in L.A. shooting a video with Usher under burning palm trees. My love was burning up for him. SO HOT.

Of course, I’m totally into lyrics of the song. At the beginning, Usher is so sure that the relationship is over. Only when he calls his new “girlfriends” by the ex’s name, he realizes the big mistake. But Usher knows, the boss lady ain’t coming back. So he has to: LET IT BURN.

He loved this picture of me, so demure.
Ok, I’m not really in this frame, but we did a photo shoot for the big picture on the wall.

Always on his back.
This scene features a one of a kind Usher jacket with a print of me in Japanese drag on the back. So cute.

Hello, Ushy, I'm behind you!
Another fun Burn moment. I mean does he even recognize I’m still thurr for him? As you can see, I was trying my hardest to get noticed.

Stop the engines, Ush, Boss Lady on the road!
I ruined a couple of shots for this scene on purpose. I wanted to show my pretty make up and always turned around to blink my lashes. This would have been so good. Anyways, it was lots of fun to stop Ushy in the middle of the road. Total Boss Lady style.

And now, just check out the full clip. Burn.

Fun Girl

J6! YAY!

And while we wait for the new Mariah video (please scroll down), why not watch Jessica 6 – Fun Girl. J6 consists of Morgan Wiley, Andrew Raposo and Nomi Ruiz, who could also be heard on the Hercules & Love Affair single, You Belong. If you’ve ever seen H&LA live, you know what a great stage presence Nomi has.

Anyways, here is a free download of the sexy dreamy disco Worldwarwater version of Fun Girl, which clocks in at just under 13 minutes. Love it.
And the Jessica 6 debut album is planned for this spring.

p.s. Why hasn’t anyone told me about Jessica 6 before?
Apparently my girlfriends over at omgblog.com have covered them for awhile.
And yes, I already follow Nomi on twitter.

Bits & Pieces

You first saw Twista, Vixen and Snoopy of the House of Monroe at our Hotnuts Pride party in June. They set the night on fire with their drops.

Now, the three hotties are in the new Junior Boys video, Bits and Pieces.
Check it out below & some backstage pictures.

Lass uns Liebe sein

Hier ist nun endlich die erste Solosingle und das dazugehörige Video “Lass uns Liebe sein” (Let Us Be Love) von Jochen Distelmeyer. Nachdem mir “Wohin mit dem Hass?” doch etwas zu aggro war, geht’s hier in gluecklicheren Tönen weiter. Und wer hätte gedacht, dass JD nochmal mit den jungen Leuten tanzt? Herzerfrischend jugendlich.
Und als Zugabe gibt es noch ein Interview.

(Danke superschum)

In a Thunderstorm

Gentleman Reg’s video to his dancy new single “We’re in a Thunderstorm” has just been released. The song is going to stick in your head, believe me.

I’m so glad G-Man is stepping out of the indie rock corner & giving us some fresh air. The clip features lots of Toronto Queen West peoples including the wonderful Fay Slift aka Ladybear Extraordinaire.

And in case you were wondering why Mary and Proddy are not in the video: we were to drunk to show up, totally confused we headed to Queen East, looking for the shooting location. Doh.

As always, I’m hoping for a pumping deep house remix. Get the Thunderstorm source files of the song and submit your mix to Arts&Crafts. Make it work.
