Music Mondays: The Return of Mimi, Pamyu Pamyu, Jenna Andrews Sex Tape, and More!

Saturday and Sunday:

The weekend was a bit slow for me. Never mind that Mother’s Day was on Sunday, it was just a whirlwind of crazy for me. However, there was a bit of news to round out the week.

Saturday brought news that had me jumping up and down. Elton John’s got a biopic! And it’s launching at the Cannes Film Festival! I don’t know whether to cry, laugh, dance, kiss somebody… I just… I’m all kinds of a mess right now!

“Much like the life of Elton John the man, ‘Rocketman’ is the larger than life movie spectacle that brilliantly captures the universal struggle of self-love that we all face,” added Good Universe co-founder Joe Drake. “Director Michael Gracey’s vision for this movie is overflowing with everything that makes for great event cinema. We pulled out all the stops to join Rocket Pictures on this incredible film.”

Remember Ne-Yo’s song Miss Right? It seems that it was originally in contention between the R&B crooner and another smooth vocalist named B. Smyth. Both recorded the song, but Ne-Yo put it on his album. Well, B. Smyth decided to give us version of the song. What do you think, guys?

Sunday saw a bit of news and new music. Firstly, and because I can, JYJ is finally, FINALLY releasing a new song. It’s been, what, three years? Yeah, bout time, chaps. This time, it’s the theme song for the 2014 Incheon Asian Games [1]. As the event ambassadors, of course, it’s their responsibility to promote the games to the fullest. And what better way than to give fans a thrill with a new single! Again… bout… damn… time!

Then some new music inspired by the beauty and perfection that is Sade. SchmitzCutz released a playlist that highlighted a bevy of artists inspired by the legendary soul singer. It’s one of the most soothing pieces of music to come out of the weekend, most certainly something lush and brilliant for Mother’s Day.

And that’ll about do it for this week. I think I did a wee bit better this time around, but I still need to work on getting news about the weekend. As you can see, this is pretty much a blog listing of some of the stuff that caught my eye and interested me during the week, so if there’s some news here that you didn’t see, sorry… HaHa.

For you fans of trip-hop and its greatest proponent, Tricky, I leave you with a sample of his upcoming album, False Idols. Enjoy and see you next week!

As unexpected as my path was to loving all things weird, more unexpected is my ability to get attention for writing about the stuff.
