Today, Lady Z goes all girly on our asses….

Alicia Keys- "No One"- Alicia Keys is like a female Bob Marley- God, what a crooner!  I’m not really dissin’ her, because I respect her as a talented musician, but I just don’t think I can sit through this one.  Its like when someone puts on the Marley Legend CD at the party: ehh.. No One really wants to listen to that… The melody is so cyclical it just reminds me of Pachabel’s Canon, and thats where I muted this one… whew!!!!

Vanessa Carlton- "Nolita Fairytale"- God, I just hope she’s genuine.  She’s cute, she’s got style: no hoop earrings, no boob jobs, no hot pants.  So she sees fairytale lore all over her town, and I wonder what drug she’s on… This video reminds me of Nelly Furtado before she became "promiscuous," and how much more I liked her then.  Will Vanessa go whore??? As with everything, time will tell… and let it be said that I am totally against the destruction of perfectly good musical instruments for dramatic effect in music videos… Unless you’re Kurt Cobain or someone else worthy… Vanessa is NOT worthy… that piano could change the entire life course of some deserving child…

    “Will Vanessa go whore???”
    Yes, I think there’s a good chance she will. You know why I say that? It’s simple really; she’s on Irv Gotti’s label, Murder Inc. Have you watched Gotti’s Way on VH1? If there has ever been an asshole it is he. I think you could do a Vengeful Videorama on that show alone.

    I know, Guido and I disagree on this, but I would be content to never hear Bob Marley again. And don’t get me wrong, I like the dude. He was great and all. I just see his music as a given – let’s move on. How people could get stuck on one person like that all their lives – like musical monogamy!! Ugh!

    Musical monogamy – good choice of words. Alicia Keys could take a little make-up vacation. She’s kind of caking it on in that video.

    Darling, it’s “Pachelbel.”
