CARTOON CIRCLE HOTTIE – Chrissie Swan
April 18th, 2011
CARTOON CIRCLE HOTTIE
Much loved 2003 BIG BROTHER Australia runner-up, entertaining breakfast radio host on Queensland’s HOT 91.1 and Melbourne’s VEGA 91.5 along with Australian Idol judge Ian Dicko Dickson & comedian Dave O’Neil, a regular guest panelist on Channel 10′s Friday Night Project, popular co-host on Channel 10 morning chat show The Circle, and spokesperson for Jenny Craig weight loss, 1980′s music devotee… CHRISSIE SWAN!
FUN FACTS: The Circle co-Host’s popularity with viewers is so great she has been nominated for three 2011 Logie Television awards including Most Popular Newcomer (Female), Most Popular Presenter and (controversially) the coveted Gold Logie for Most Popular Personality on Australian Television!
Music Review: Jessica Mauboy Accentuates Her Fabulosity
January 20th, 2011
Jessica Mauboy never seems to put a foot wrong. She is sexy, she has matured, she has an awesome voice and she is über cool.
Jessica Mauboy is cool. She has come a long way from being barefoot with flies on her face on Australian Idol. And good on her!
Her latest album Get ‘Em Girls is the product of fine and versatile vocals, superb producing and awesome management. She is the ultimate salable Australian to the world, and I hope to God she conquers the tough American market, which after one listen of the new album, you think you are listening to some of Americas best talents like Fergie, Rihanna, Lil’ Kim or Kelly Rowland.
The first of fifteen songs to burst through your speakers (and you’re going to need good ones!) shares the album title, Get ‘Em Girls. It is also the first song Jessica released from the album and superbly produced by Mr. Bangladesh. Big bass, Jimmy Choo‘s, great producing, Snoop Dogg and Maseratti‘s make the song sexy, dancey and a hell of a lot of fun to move to!
Handle It is the next track, a fun and perky track with cute rhythm reminds me a little of Mya‘s Case of the Ex, just faster.
One of my favorite track is Accelerate That, for me it’s a standout track. Fast, furious, frantic… Jessica accentuates her “fabulosity”. For some reason, when I drive listening to this song… I “speed up”, it makes me want to drive fast. In her words, “you need to step on the gas!”
Scariest Part, the first track that slows down the pace a little, but turns the high notes up to maximum. A great song, with plenty of feeling and range.
Saturday Night. At first it took me a while to like it, but now I love it. It’s a young, free and fresh song, it almost makes you feel a little liberated. A fine collaboration of lyrics and music with Ludacris.
An international flavor from the first second, Foreign is definately showcasing Jess’ versatility. This song requires great speakers, it’s brutally bassy, busy but freaking amazing! I love this one, it makes me want to crump, do the caterpillar, the robot and then spin on my head Run DMC styles!
Can Anybody Tell Me, a cute girly song, which is very Jordin Sparks, Tattoo. It’s a sweet song, with no particular meaning, it just sounds good. Like many of the tracks on this album.
Fight For You, which has a mix of Cheryl Cole and Pussycat Dolls is a great little tune, but not as great at the song Maze which follows. A boppy girly song, but it’s just so unforgettable – I promise it will be one of the songs that will stick in your head all day! It’s the epitome of ‘pop’, a song too cute to skip.
No album can be complete without an emotional, yet strong song. Here For Me is that song. To finish off the album, Forget Your Name, an up-beat track with fast and snappy lyrics, great vocals and one to definately dance along to. This track has a real Deborah Cox sound and feel to it. Love it.
This is one mega AWESOME album. I love it. I love it. I LOVE it.
My only complaint though… Well two actually. Firstly, when I heard Jess Mauboy was about to release her new album, I was excited. But when I heard the album name Get ‘Em Girls, I was disappointed and thought it was going to be some silly 10 year old girls album. Boy was I wrong. I guess as the saying goes, you can’t judge a book by it’s cover. Speaking of cover, that’s the other thing that irks me. The cover doesn’t match the content, it should be a sleek, sexy and metallic cover – much like TLC did with the single No Scrubs and album Fanmail.
Second, her video clips also don’t match her music. Well for the first two releases anyway. They lack pretty much everything. Her songs are about fabulousness – great shoes, fast cars, great friends, nights out, spending lots of cash and living the good life. This could be reflected in her videos – not cheaply made, poorly lit sets with poor direction. I don’t blame her though, she is still awesome!
I give this album a very special 9 out of 10. It’s brilliant. Absolutely brilliant.
