UK FILM: STREET DANCE 3D

I just watched the trailer for the up and coming film ‘Street Dance (3D)’ and it looks like it’s trying to be the UK’s answer to US dance films made over the past 5/6 years e.g. ‘Step Up’. Britain’s Got Talent winners Diversity team up with dance group rivals Flawless and 2008 Britain’s Got Talent winner George Sampson. It looks like another cheesy dance movie with a weak storyline, but well done to Flawless and Diversity for getting this gig. Film release []

50 CENT FT NE-YO – ‘BABY BY ME’

Baby By Me is taken from Fiddy’s forthcoming coming album Before I Self Destruct. The video features Kelly Rowland as his love interest and there is some good sexual chemistry there. The track sounds OK but I prefer the video. Your thoughts please. Hit or Miss?

PICS: THE Q AWARDS (LONDON) – AMY WINEHOUSE

Singer Amy Winehouse attended the 2009 Q Awards last night (26th Oct), which took place at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London. Waste Woman Winehouse also showed off her recently surgically enhanced breasts and was accompanied by her protégé/”god-daughter”  13 year old singer Dionne Bromfield. I question the sanity of Dionne’s parents.  They are just asking for trouble and a visit from Social Services (if they can be bothered). I’m sorry but all I see is warning lights up ahead. Amy with her 13 year old “god-daughter” Dionne Bromfield who looks a lot []

WHAT HAPPENED???? Rest In Peace H-Town’s original lead singer Dino Connor. Your thoughts please. Hit or Miss?
