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.…


Brittersweet Reflections: The Britney Episode of Glee

Spoiler alert: I don't like Glee. I just don't. I'm not trying to be 'a hater.' Lord knows, I've tried so many times to like this forsaken show. This episode now marks my fifth attempt to engage with this program, and trust me, I really wanted to like it--especially for tonight's show. First,…


Hey, You Know What Was An Amazing Song? LL Cool J's "Control Myself" (featuring Jennifer Lopez)

That's right. You heard me: "Control Myself" was a goddamn jam. Are you familiar? Yes/no? Let's discuss. Let me take you back a little--four years ago, to be exact. The year was 2006. It was a fine year: The Timbaland takeover was just at its glorious peak with Nelly Furtado's Loose and Justin…


The 2010 MTV VMA’s: A Very Merry MuuMuse Recap

OMFG It's the 2010 MTV VMA's--the glitz! the glamour! The meat purses! Let's cut the shit: The show was mostly boring. Taylor Swift sung a song about Kanye West, Kanye West sung a song about Kanye West, and no one gave a shit about Ke$ha.


Free Lindsay: In Remembrance of a Better Lohan

I'm a big Lindsay Lohan fan. Massive, really. I've got all the magazines she's ever spread her legs for, held my own in arguments regarding her 'acting ability,' and even made my ex-boyfriend sit through I Know Who Killed Me. (Not the source of the break-up, though potentially.) Obviously then,…


MuuMuse Analysis: The 2010 Grammy Awards

It's that time again: The Grammy Awards, a time when pop dreams are crushed by a barrage of country stars winning awards chosen by really old, really privileged record executives that haven't been in touch with the consumer market since 1983. Since I didn't really feel like doing a massive…


The Rise and Fall of the Fame Kills Tour: A Dramatic Reading

Photo courtesy of BeatCrave. First, a LOLZ-worthy headline from CNN: Kanye West's 'Fame Kills' tour meets swift death I am no longer of the mind that the T. Swift incident caused the demise of what would have been the 2 Much Ego Tour. Laurieann "BOOMCACK!" Gibson, the choreographer to the ~stars~…


The 2009 VMA’s: A Reflection

Oh, the 2009 VMA's. We laughed, we cried...but mostly, we bitched about Kanye West. In what was perhaps the most entertaining go-around since 2003, the 2009 Video Music Awards took to the streets of NYC at Radio City Music Hall last night. There were some excellent performances (Beysus),…
