What’s New With The Wonderful Cheryl Cole?

August 11, 2013

Adele, the latest pop sensation, has once again disappointed fans due to an illness. It started off with a severe cold and chest infection, which forced the British singer to cancel a handful of dates. After that, she developed a hemorrhage in her vocal cords, forcing even more dates to be cancelled. Then, the unfortunate luck continued for Adele, when she was forced to tell her fans that she had to cancel the remaining tour dates due to severe laryngitis. The star claims that if she did not cancel her tour dates, she could face ruining her beautiful and raspy voice forever. Adele has deeply apologized to her many followers with statements such as this, “Guys, I’m heartbroken and worried to tell you that yet again I’m experiencing problems with my voice. It’s ridiculous I know! I can’t believe it myself”, which she posted on her official web page, along with a photo of herself holding a sign that says “I’m so sorry”. Adele’s physician requested that it is highly mandatory that the British songwriter/ singer rests her voice and completely heals. If she fails to follow these orders, her career may be over. Adele plans to attend a rehab for her vocal cords, which is intended to help her recooperate quickly, as well as build stamina so that she can perform at her best once again. The “Rolling in the Deep” singer prays that all of her faithful fans will be forgiving and accept her most sincere apologies. Most of Adele’s fans completely understand, and wish her nothing but the best. Adele does plan to finish and reschedule her tour once she is completely healed. Adele has become a very successful internationally known superstar. Her latest award nominations include Best Song, Best Video, click, Best Female, as well as Best UK and Ireland, according to the MTV EMA 2011 Nominations.

What Happened to Hip Hop?

June 24, 2012

A few days ago, I was browsing http://www.cable-tv.com/, doing some research on the various TV providers my area. I was also listening to Internet radio, jamming out to some 90s hip hop when all the sudden a track by Soulja Boy titled “Doo Doo Head” began playing.

Is this really what hip hop has come to?

In the eyes of many fans and artists, hip-hop music has taken a turn for the worst. I’m not speaking for all rappers – there are definitely some talented and lyrically adept underground emcees – but what happened to mainstream hip hop?

When it first broke ground in the early 1980s and through the “golden age” of the mid 80s and early 90s, hip-hop music actually meant something. It was influential, diverse and most importantly – a unifying force in the African-American community. Artists like Public Enemy, Run-D.M.C., Rakim and Big Daddy Kane were some of the most notable pioneers of the “golden age,” giving hip hop a sound and a name. Back then the music was motivated by the passion of the artist, whereas today it’s driven by commercialism and marketability.

Today, when you turn on the radio, every hip-hop song is about drugs, money, expensive cars and material possessions. As legendary rapper Nas so eloquently put it, “hip hop is dead.”

He may be right.

After nearly three decades of growing popularity, hip hop has seen a significant drop-off in sales over the last 10-plus years. According to Billboard Magazine, hip hop/rap sales have dropped 44 and shrunk to 10 of all music sales since 2000.

Needless to say, today’s hip-hop music has also faced tremendous criticism. Many people, both inside and outside the hip-hop community, have denounced it for spreading the wrong values by endorsing using/selling drugs, theft, rape and illegal activity.

Beep. Beep. Beep.

That’s the sound of hip hop on life support. With fewer 2Pac’s and Biggie’s and more Soulja Boy’s and Lil Jon’s, the outlook for this once glorified and unique musical genre gets dimmer and dimmer every day.
