'90s Sunday is just the way it is...



Today, I felt inspired to post the best song by my first DIVA-love (a.k.a. Celine). I always wondered why I adore this tune oh so much, and now I know...it was written and produced by the same team behind all of the Y2K-era Backstreet Boys / N'Sync / Britney hits. I can totally imagine Nick Carter belting this out. Though the video is SOOO turn-of-the-century, the song still qualifies as a '90s POPster, as it was released in November of '99. Ahhhhhhh, Celine, how I do love thee...

Unapologetically,

Barry Gregory

P.S. Enjoy the Golden Globes (& Downtown Abbey for all you Americans)!

The funny thing about twitter feuds is that they benefit absolutelyeveryone EXCEPT those of us who have to listen to them - until now?

Our lovely new year is being rung in by old tricks - that is, what Idolator aptly titled the Twitterpocalypse: an unnecessary internet feud between ever-so-bashful Azealia Banks & up-and-coming rapper Angel Haze.  But this time - steady yourselves - something productive has actually been done with all the hot air: a diss track! Wow!! Could it be that Azealia, Queen of the Twitter Feud (translation: Queen of 21st Century Music Promotion), has been one-upped???(???)??  Doubtful... Listen below:



Well, that was certainly something, wasn't it? This is no sophomore effort, kids... we shall see.  Either way, sit back, relax, pop some popcorn & enjoy the publicity circus being drummed up just in time for Azealia & Angel's debut albums.  Hey, at least we get a good song out of it... But we highly doubt that Diplo & Paul Epworth will care much since, um, they're both working with them (suspicious much?)

Azealia & Angel are probably high-fiving backstage right now. The collab's still on, right?

Unapologetically,

Minna
