Tulisa Hits #1 With ‘Young’

Renown for her “triple x factor”, it seems Tulisa‘s career has actually been boosted her now infamous “tape”.

For, her debut solo single ‘Young’ rocketed straight in at #1 on the Official UK Singles Chart today. Having amassed a string of top-ten’s with her former group NDubz, ‘Young’ also earns the honor of serving as the 23 year old’s first career chart-topper – both solo and as part of the London-bred collective.

***********

Despite the shocking levels of “generic” the song is coated in, what isn’t a surprise is that it’s been a success. Much like the Cheryl Coles and other talent-strapped acts before her, Tulisa has morphed into a “tabloid celebrity” – a hat she wears readily and willfully.

And why not? After all, these days it’s easier for the “basic” to generate and capitalise on scandal as a means of promotion, instead of actually earning success. The end result, as seen here, are number ones. Congratulations?

Lil Kim Rep Slams Lady GaGa Manager Over Azealia Feud

 

Foxy Brown. EveRemy Ma. Nicki Minaj. Keys.

Yes, for whatever reason, Lil Kim has always struggled to get along with other Female Rappers.

In fact, barring Missy Elliott– who is responsible for putting the MC on the Pop classic ‘Lady Marmalade’- Kim has gotten into it with almost every Femcee she has been linked with.

So it didn’t surprise us when New York native Azealia Banks spoke out against her last week, hinting she had been disrespected by the Rap icon.

Now, Kim’s rep has slammed Lady GaGa‘s management company (who also manage Banks) over the matter, accusing them of manufacturing the feud for publicity.

From The Vault: NSYNC – ‘Girlfriend’

With the world at large drooling over the The Wanted and One Direction, it is safe to say that boybands are back in style.

Indeed, more than 10 years have passed since the last “boom” courtesy of the Backstreet Boys and NSYNC – who dominated charts globally. One of the latter’s last ever singles, ‘Girlfriend’, is this week’s From The Vault pick.

The track served as the final single from their blockbuster curtain-call ‘Celebrity’ and was a Top 5 hit in the US, the UK, Canada and Australia. Originally produced by multi-talented Wade Robson, the video mix for ‘Girlfriend’ featured rapper Nelly and was helmed by the mighty dynamo duo The Neptunes – who would go on to produce the bulk of Timberlake’s debut.

This more Urban, edgier sound was a departure for the boys, who before that were serving up cheese-flavoured bubble-gum in abundance (not to take away from the classic statuses of ‘Bye, Bye’, and ‘It’s Gonna Be Me’). The tune was also a hit with critics (as was its parent album), and is considered a fan favourite.

Its drag race-themed visual echoed the edgy; and is clearly a visual Team Bieber had on loop before shooting the youngster’s latest vid, ironically titled ‘Boyfriend’. The ressemblance is uncanny.

*****

We can’t say we are eager for a NSYNC reunion (although another JC solo run is a *must*). Still, we’d amply appreciate if the new breed of boyband stopped wallowing in the cheese, and actually concentrated on giving them young girls (and boys) something to really scream about. Today’s superstar’s should be building on the foundations set by their predecessors…not peeing on it.
