Britney Spears Screams and Shouts!

So during one of my many sleepless nights, I came across this new track with Will.I.Am & mizzzzzz Britney ‘Bitch’ Spears. Now maybe I just missed this altogether and it’s been out for a while, but what’s with mizzzzzz Spears’ new found vocal chords? Do we like? Definitely not something to write home about but a rocking club tune to let your camp side out to dance? I think so!

Rate or Slate bitches!

Urban Decay Posher than It Sounds?

So the makeup world is abuzz again after another corporate sale of a well know cosmetics brand. Kevin James Bennett, Emmy award winning makeup artist to the stars revealed on Facebook today that makeup GIANTS L’Oreal Paris have bought Urban Decay Cosmetics. So what does that mean for one of our make up favs?

Who knows? When Estée Lauder bought Smashbox over 2 years ago there was nothing but hype for the brand, coming into a corporate company whom own the likes of MAC, however when Estée, finally took control of the brand earlier this year, it seemed all the hype for the future of the brand was just that…… Hype. Since then, in the UK & Ireland Smashbox has been pulled out of most retail & department stores, and in Ireland only now remain in Arnotts & some larger pharmacies.

This is not the first time Urban Decay has swapped hands of the corporate kind either….. Urban Decay is an American cosmetics company founded in 1996 by David Soward, Wende Zomnir, Patricia Holmes, and Sandy Lerner. Urban Decay was bought by Moet-Hennessy Louis Vuitton (LVMH who own the likes of Givenchy, Dior, Benefit, Make Up Forever etc. being the biggest Luxury Brand in the world.) in 2000, & then sold again in 2002 to the Falic Group. In 2009 it was taken over by Castanea Partners, a private equity firm, to where it now stands to date with L’Oreal. So don’t go feeling sorry for the small time big hit company, because its been a long time since then.

Girls Aloud Give Sarah a Back Seat?

So, a little late, & a little slow, but I just checked out the new Girls Aloud track & video….. Love the track & video! Think its great for a night out & a perfect comeback song for the girl group….. However…. Is it just me, or do you also think the girls gave Sarah a back seat for the video? Personally I think she destroyed herself with all her surgery and looks years older then she did before, and I think the rest of the pop troop may feel the same way? Its very rare throughout the whole video you see a closeup of her face clearly? Cheryl, Nadine, Nicola & Kimberly all share a similar black & white segment for themselves & yet in her ‘solo’ segment, they have a lighting effect all over her? Not stirring the brown stuff…… But check it out yourselves!
