Ali Lohan to Pursue a Music Career?

When word got out that Lindsay Lohan's young sister, Aliana 'Ali' Lohan would be getting back into music, I was so excited! In 2008 when I was 15 years old she released a single All The Way Around which I loved but sadly I don't recall her album ever coming out afterwards. Oh wait, let's not forget about Lohan Holiday (Google it if you have no idea about what I'm talking about - most South Africans won't). Three weeks ago Ali uploaded a YouTube video of her singing Beautiful by Christina Aguilera. Seriously, she did an incredible job! Her voice has definitely improved a lot from a few years ago when she was very young: it's a lot more mature and stronger. She reminds me of Lorde and Adele and maybe a bit of Gabrielle Cilmi too. I wish she would cover a few of my favourite songs like maybe Roar...

Ariana Grande x Cosmopolitan

You all know I love Ariana Grande – before she got so huge and now everyone’s like ‘omg, I totally love her!’. I really enjoy her music; she’s got a beautiful voice and I adore her style. I’m so happy she landed two major magazine covers for February 2014: Teen Vogue and Cosmopolitan. She look icredible in Cosmo so I decided to share the photos below. I can’t wait to read the interview with her even though it’s a tad bit dated because she’s no longer with The Wanted’s Nathan Sykes.
More photos after the jump. #TeamAri

DEMI

Have I ever told you guys that I love Demi Lovato? I love her style. I love her music. I love her personality and I am inspired by her life story.With Demi recently announcing her return back to The X Factor as a judge and releasing a teaser for her new self-titled album releasing mid-May, I felt it fitting to talk about my adoration for one of Disney"s ex-teen princesses. I am not going to sit here, type this out and tell you "OMG, I love Demi Lovato - always have and always will.". I did not. When i first noticed her in Disney Channel's Original Movie, Camp Rock I remember thinking "ugh, another little Disney princess - bleh". I enjoyed some of her music but still preferred Selena Gomez and Miley Cyrus. I watched Sonny With A Chance occasionally and started to have more 'tolerance' towards Demi. I Then really got in to her...

Musical Ambition

Oh hey there, I'm back! Yay! I won't bore you with all the details of where I have been, but if you follow me on Twitter then you'll know about how sick I have been, stressed out and lately just all over the place. Blogging had to take a back-seat, but now I'm back with my lists, ramblings and celebrity rants. In the next few days I'll be updating the blog a  bit but nothing too major - don't get alarmed. Right now, as I type this, I am listening to the latest album from Taylor Swift titled 'Red'. I'm a huge fan of hers; I love her music and equally love her sense of style. Her music is quite wonderful and is def pretty sounds for your ears. I'm sure that this album will be on repeat for a while - it's country with pop elements. I want to do a...

QUICK TIP: Mascara Resi-Don’t

Hey guys! I hope you all are well. I attended the Vodacom Durban July on Saturday and it was quite an expereince, but I left very early so in all honesty, it did not turn out the way I wanted it to. I could have covered the event so much better, but we can't all be perfect each and every time, right? The highlight of my day was finally meeting the amazing, beautiful, stunning, gorgeous and perfect Jeannie D from Top Billing and getting a quick interview with her - she's Africa's Giuliana Rancic. Oh my word, she's just wonderful. Sigh, the memory of meeting her made me feel a bit better. @MishGov so wonderful meeting you yesterday! You're a great interviewer and I think u have a fine career ahead of u! ????.?????? — Jeannie D (@Jeannieous) July 8, 2012 I'll maybe talk about the July later in the week or post the link to...

Lady Gaga is Coming To South Africa!

After Nicki Minaj, Lady Gaga is the next best thing when it comes to international performers I want to see live. After month's of speculation and a week of obvious hits and clues, we can all finally shout and scream that 'LADY GAGA IS COMING TO SOUTH AFRICA' - I AM SO HAPPY I COULD DIE. A lot of people may think 'what's with the excitement!?' but when you come from a country where very few insanely popular artists stop by for a concert, it is a HUGE thing. I'm really excited. Tickets start from R315 to R715 (that's about US$40 to US$100). I have no clue where I want to be...

I’ll Be Heading To The July!

Hey guys! I hope you are all well. Did I tell you all that I moved desks at work? It's tricky to describe our floor plan, but I'll upload photos next week maybe. Basically, I'm loving how my new spot is so quiet and I'm able to be more focused. Though, I do miss the random conversations with my colleagues about Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez, but they've just forgotten about me so I've made peace with that...
