I hope everyone had a fantabulous weekend! I know I did, especially with all of the new releases at the box office. It is definitely the holiday season and the stars are coming out to play, which gives me even more hot messness to talk about before 2014. So, let’s get it!
1) Disney for approving the songs in Frozen.
After reading great reviews of the film, I was so excited to see Disney’s Frozen over the weekend. For the most part, Frozen did not disappoint. The characters were cute, funny, and lovable, while the plot was overall pretty entertaining. The only miss (and this was a BIG miss) was the music.
For the life of me, I do not know why Disney decided to skip on Alan Menkin for this project. Menkin was the genius behind such classics as The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, and Hercules. Although Frozen tried to give us the same magical moments as these earlier pictures, the music just fell incredibly flat. I mean, the songs’ lyrics didn’t even rhyme! Not to mention, the vocabulary that was used was beyond basic. What happened to using words like “provincial” and “succession” ???
Honestly, all I can say is that I don’t remember a single song from the movie. Maybe next time Disney will actually get it right…
2) Kanye West for just being Kanye West.
Last week, Kanye did a series of interviews to try and explain his “creative genius” to the world. Unfortunately, Kanye allowed his temper to outshine his message and ended up getting into a heated argument on the radio show, Sway in the Morning.

Although I completely understand what Kanye is saying about people being “slaves,” I think that he needs to find a different approach to interviews.
3) X Factor for eliminating Josh Levi.
Simon Cowell’s X Factor is struggling in the ratings department and the show is about to lose one more viewer. Last Thursday, when I watched the live results show, I was in shock when two of the top talents left the competition – Josh Levi and Lillie McCloud. Even though I love Lillie, I never saw her in the final 4. Josh, however, was a different story. On the show, the kid had more talent in his left pinky than half the acts combined.

This kid is a STAR and it’s just a matter of time before we see an album or television show from him. TEAM JOSH!
4) People Magazine for naming Adam Levine “The Sexiest Man Alive.”
Now, I know that a lot of people find Adam to be incredibly “sexy,” but is he reeeeeeeally the sexiest man alive??? I think not.
And in sadder news…
Today, Hollywood and fans of the Fast and Furious movies continue to mourn the loss of Paul Walker. The 40-year-old actor was in a fiery car crash on Saturday in Santa Clarita, CA. Investigators are still trying to figure out causes for the fatal accident.
In addition to The Fast and the Furious, the ageless actor was also known for She’s All That, Into the Blue, and Takers.

Bina, thanks for your comments about Josh Levi. I stopped watching X Factor early on this season, so I was not aware of the star quality Josh Levi had to offer. However, I love that you included the link for his recent performance. You are correct! He is extremely talented. I thoroughly enjoyed his singing and dancing. I sincerely hope that he will have much success in the music industry.
