GaGa Blesses the Gays

Lady GaGa @ National Equality March from Dwayne Yates on Vimeo.

I was given the oppertunity to travel to Washington D.C. last weekend to participate in the National Equality March. I did a video about it for my college's newspaper. The people I met were all amazing, and all of them together created a positive vibe I haven't felt since I campaigned for Obama. This time, though, that vibe was multiplied by 1,000. About 100,000 people came to show their concern for equal rights last weekend.
This is a clip I got from GaGa.

Gaining Airplay: Nicki Minaj - I Get Crazy

Young Money representative Nicki Minaj has finally begun getting radio play in Cleveland, OH. Why is this important? It is important becasue Cleveland is one of the slowest markets in the US to get music. Bassically, Cleveland is late. So when a new artist starts to get airplay there, it means that artist has made it to some above-mediocre level of popularity. Congratulations, Miss Minaj.
The single being played isn't quite a single. Like Drake 6 months ago, Nicki is getting radio play on mixtape tracks. This one is called 'I Get Crazy'. Download it HERE
The picture above is from a shoot she did with Honey Magazine. Honey Mag's choice in interviewees has been interesting lately. Maybe two months ago they featured FeFe Dobson.

Download This: Lady GaGa - Bad Romance

Bad Romance is a track from GaGa's re-release of her debut album The Fame. It's interesting. It has a horror movie feel to it.

Download This: Kid Cudi x Ratatat - Alive

Alive is our favorite track off the Cudi Album. It's one of Cudi's best collaborations thus far. He gives love to the indie-electro-pot head crowd and he receives love back from them. He should keep going in that direction and see where it leads him. With half of the rappers that used to be around either dead or in jail, rap is about to be a thing of the past. It's up to new comers like Cudi and Drake to pave the way for something new to come about.

Pretty Wack Video: Q-Tip x Norah Jones - Life is Better

Sorry, but this song is pretty WACK, and Norah Jones' verse is beasting Q-tip's.
"Why post it?" Right?
Well, we thought it was going to be good, but it was not. It was a rush post. Hopefully this won't happen again, but we can't promise anything.

Black Eyed Peas Tracks Worth Your Time

BEP "meet me halfway" PMS from PrettyMonkeyStudio on Vimeo.

There are two Black Eyed Peas songs that have come to our attention!
The Black Eyed Peas released its fifth album, Energy Never Dies (The E.N.D.), this past Summer. The success of their number-one single, Boom Boom Pow (like Kid Cudi's single 'Day 'N'Nite') confirms that there is indeed a taste for electro-hip hop in the market. E.N.D. is on its 16th week hanging above the top 20 on Billboard's Top 200.
Here's the point: B.E.P. has released it's third single off the album, 'Meet Me Halfway', and it has caught our attention. Will.I.Am took 80s new wave very seriously when he picked the direction for this song. The vocal arrangement sort of has Fergie sounding like Olivia Newton John in 3008. It works for us, though. We're sure the video will be totally random. Almost as random as the one above.

'Missing You' is another good song off E.N.D. It is another techno-hip hop ballad. Give it about 40 seconds to kick it.

What do you know about crackheads? They're addicted, right? Well Crack.Rock.Surprise is currently addicted to Miss Lady GaGa. Here she is performing 'Paparazzi' on SNL on Oct. 3. She also did a skit with Madonna that night. It wasn't funny. YouTube it yourself. :p
