Club Classics and Get Me To The Finals: A Very Thorough X Factor Performance Night Review (December 4)

We're almost there! It's the semi-finals of X Factor. Five acts remain--four will go on to the grand finale! And now, we're down to all four of MuuMuse's favorites from the very beginning: Cher Lloyd, Rebecca Ferguson, Matt Cardle, and Mary Byrnes. Oh, and One Direction's still going strong.…


MamaMuuse Presents: Burlesque, A Review of A Modern Masterpiece

Yesterday afternoon, my mother and I went to the movie theatre for a screening of the film Burlesque, starring Cher and Christina Aguilera. Afterward, my mother felt compelled to write me an email with a review of the experience. Here are her thoughts. Dear Son – Thanks for inviting me out for…


Rock Week: A Very Thorough X Factor Performance Night Review (November 27)

It was "Rock Week" on X Factor tonight. FUCK YEAHHHH! Oh man—what’s going to happen?! Will Dannii rock a mohawk?! Will Cheryl Cole light her nipples on fire?! Will Katie Weasel not be impossibly grating? No, none of that happened.


MuuMuse Live Tweets (Almost All Of) The 2010 American Music Awards

The 2010 American Music Awards aired live tonight. I live-tweeted the event. Well, most of it. (The Walking Dead came on at 10--I do have my priorities, after all.) So, rather doing a rather drawn-out summary of the affair, I figure I'd just regurgitate what I just said--except with pictures and…


Beatles Week: A Very Thorough X Factor Performance Night Review (November 20)

It's Beatles Week at the X Factor! And, as one of the only human beings on this planet who doesn't care much for the Legendary Icons of Music Making (well, not until they dabbled with the Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds anyway), I can't seem to muster much excitement for this week--except by using…


Elton John Night: A Very Thorough X Factor Performance Night Review (November 13)

Boy, they're really clobbering this whole Elton John thing to death, aren't they? This week's X Factor theme was "Elton John Night," in honor the same man who only a few weeks prior went on a queeny rant against X Factor, talent shows, Simon Cowell and popular music in general, which caused Louis…


Wynter Wonderland: A Night with Wynter Gordon (The First Dance EP Release Party and Showcase at Splash)

Between the two glasses of complimentary champagne and Wynter Gordon grinding on my lap for a photo, I slowly began to wonder: "What is my life?" On Tuesday, I was invited to a private party in the evening--we're going to call it a soiree--in honor of the release of Wynter Gordon's official debut…


Proud To Be An American: A Very Thorough X Factor Performance Night Review (November 6)

'Twas 'American Anthems' Week on X Factor last Saturday, a celebration of true, good ol' American talent. YEE-HAW! As the judges strode into the studio to the sound of Bruce Springsteen's "Born In The USA," US flags waved on the screens while overenthusiastic cheerleaders pranced around like loons…


Halloween Screams: A Very Thorough X Factor Performance Night Review (October 30)

Today is October 30, which means it’s time for the ghoulish Halloween X Factor spook-tacular! And oh, how terrifying it was: Damning choir chants from Hell, epilepsy-inducing flashes of lights, Louis Walsh’s general existence—wait, how’s this any different from any other week of the X…


The Creative Concept Meeting for Katy Perry's "Firework" Video: A Dramatic Reading

I haven't done one of these in a while (since Gaga's ill-fated tour with Kanye, actually), so I've decided I should start this up again. And now, a dramatic reading of what (I think) transpired at the creative concept meeting prior to the video shoot for Katy Perry's "Firework." Katy Perry: Thank…


Speaking of Guilty Pleasures: A Very Thorough X Factor Performance Night Review (October 23)

Get your tits out, everyone--it's time for another round-up of the X Factor performances! This week's theme was "Guilty Pleasures," which is basically a completely subjective, completely bullshit category that resulted in the judges inevitably squabbling over what defines a guilty pleasure and why…


It's A Hard Knock Lloyd: A Very Thorough X Factor Performance Night Review (October 16)

So, since so many of my Muusers (three actual requests) have been demanding that I do a weekly wrap-up of the X Factor performance night. I've decided to fulfill those wishes/dreams/desires. The show was boring in spots, so I've decided to highlight only the moments I had things to say about.…
