I guess it's funnier from where you're standing, cause from over here I missed the joke.
"It's about how I felt when I was trying to get signed, I was going for all these meetings and people were looking at me like 'What do we do with you'? It's about not allowing yourself to be judged by others or to be taken for an idiot. I feel the video reflects that" Emeli Sande 2012.
I have a huge crush on her so if I ever see her I might just yell out at her and tell her that I love her. Check out the video. And if you have time to listen to her album then make sure to do so.
How long could you handle the Gator's stare? Watch as we follow him around campus to find out how others fare against his mighty gaze.
This made me chuckle. Gator just stands there and stares at people. With the music and the reaction it made for a pretty funny video.
The EP is coming on 12/12 and it's entitled Whispers in the Dark. Luke James can sing his ass off so stop pretending that R&B is dead and listen to this.
There are a few ways the visual for "Make Love to Me" could have gone, but Luke James took a different route. The R&B music video portrays tasteful sensuality, as it was inspired by the famous Ernie Barnes "Sugar Shack" painting made notable by the 70s sitcom Good Times. There are times, also, where the clip takes on the vibe of Michael Jackson's "Smooth Criminal," as James passionately croons from the stage surrounded by dancing couples. "I want people to catch the party feeling; make it a fellowship of spiritual sensuality in the act of dance," he told ESSENCE.com about the Frank Gatson Jr.-choreographed clip. Cameos include Kelly Rowland, En Vogue's Terry Ellis, Stacey Barthe, and actor Omari Hardwick.
"Make Love to Me" will be a part of his 2013 LP Made to Love, and comes after James' Grammy nod for his single "I Want You."

In this short documentary, JAY Z's Life+Times takes an unprecedented behind the scenes look at the creation of JAY Z's Barclays Center opening concerts.
Deshawn Raw is an young comedian most known for his "Rap Battle" parodies on YouTube. In just over a year his sketch comedy and parody videos have resulted in over 60 Million YouTube views.
In this short film I traveled to Deshawn's home in Rancho Cucamonga, CA and talked with him about his start as a comedian and where he plans to take his comedy career. Deshawn started telling jokes in high school as a form of self defense and after a stint at college, he wanted to showcase his videos online as a reel.
A few viral videos later, Deshawn Raw's YouTube channel would lead him to creating the "Rap Battle Part 5" video with the man that inspired him to pursue an online career, Soulja Boy.
Deshawn is currently working on a Comedy Central pilot with Chris Rock, and has come a long way in a short time.
Jabari Presents was made to inspire youth culture to chase their dreams by showcasing people who are living theirs. This is a story of standing out amongst the competition and chasing your goals. This is Jabari Presents: Deshawn Raw.

I. AM. IN. TEARS!!! This flash mob occurred at the College of DuPage. Don't ask me where that is. When flash mobs occur you should just watch and see who's going to join and how many people are in on it. One mustached man tried to go against the grain. He tried to become apart of the flash mob and has left me in tears. Oh man. Enjoy.
I like the song. Video is okay. I just think directors and artists are getting lazy about how they approach their videos. It's probably because no networks really play videos but it's getting to the point that every damn video is looking the same.

I'm definitely shocked at this video. Not because he knows the Christmas song but because it was so tight. I was over here nodding my head, bouncing to the beat. Check it out. DMX should make a Xmas album.

Lianne La Havas peforms "Lost and Found" live at Billboard Studios. This is my favorite song off her album. Remember I tried to put all of you on a long time ago. I definitely want/need to see her live. Someone get me don't shit me.
