B E Y O N C E ! !


She's officially back...

Beyonce - Run The World (Girls)

So I'll be the first one to admit that when the snippet of this track first surfaced I didn't like it. Then the full version was "leaked" and I still didn't like it, and finally a re-worked version of it was released and it was a unanimous no from me. But being a true love to hate Beyonce fan, I waited for the video to surface before I finalised my decision. The video's here and she's done it again - she's won me over. I've been singing and dancing to this song nonstop, as if to say I wrote the single.

However (puts my I hate Beyonce hat on) I'm not feeling some of the outfits in this video. In fact I only like the black ensemble she wears in the first dance sequence with the two dudes. Other than that it's clear to see she's let her Mum start styling her again - not cool. Also I'm not feeling how she's catted both Gaga and Shakira, and I'm definitely not feeling the very Nicki Minaj face she pulls before the hook comes in.

Nonetheless (puts my I love Beyonce hat on) I like that the video's a bit out there for Beyonce and the dancing is fabulous. I'm also liking that we're seeing a deliberately sexy side of her, which adds a whole lot more human characteristics to her.

All in all, I'm impressed but I'm yet to be blown away. Saying that - check out the video below of her performance from the Billboard Awards (I'm semi-blown away):

Be sure to leave comments and let me know what you think of this song, laters xx

Something I Think You Should Watch...

The Hangover Part II

I cannot wait to watch this - The Hangover II hits screens in the UK on May 26th and I will definitely be watching it. I watched the first film way after it was released and to this date I don't think I've ever laughed so hard. The first Hangover was filled with some many tummy tightening moments that watching part two is a must. From the trailer it's obvious to see that the film will be following the same structure as the last. Although many film critics fear that this film won't be as great as the last because it seems too predictable, I think that if this film adheres to the same formula as part one then it should be a good watch, and more importantly a good laugh.
