Archives For why the 90’s ruled

While watching the latest version of Sparkle — besides checking out Carmen Ejogo (*legasp* English??) and fist-pumping for Tika Sumpter — the most emotional scene in the whole movie, which had me side-drying the “single” tear that kept on rolling down my left cheek, was when Whitney performed that song. And I didn’t even cry when her death was announced (more liked shocked). It’s just one of those powerful spiritual moments.

I have been listening to …Baby One More Time and Oops!… I Did it Again — nearly non-stop — for the past two days. And I just really really REALLY miss you so much. I think it’s due to my cousin mentioning you, and then wanting to see you on The X Factor. But it’s not the same :(

I’ve always liked Clea Duvall. Duh, Buffy~~~ Popular~~~ Girl Interrupted, The Faculty, Can’t Hardly Wait, She’s All That. I’ve grown up watching Clea on screen. She’s a big part of my teen teen teenage years, so I was so happy to see her in Affleck’s latest film, Argo. And I said to myself, “wow~ look at that. She is so great in here.” When I ended up on IMDb that now has her profile pic from one of the Argo premiere pics, I said “OMG, she looks stunning!” I’ve never had this reaction to a photo of her before.

Her face in this snapshot is quite flawless, and it’s impossible to get near-flawless on carpets with all the flashes going on.

When did this become NOT the norm for American pop music videos?

I know music video’s budgets have skyrocketed [1] — as of 2012 MJ and Janet’s Scream [MV] directed by Mark Romanek was still the most expensive music video ever made at $7M USD~~~ adjusted to nearly $11M USD nowadays. In fact, 8 of the Top10 Most Expensive Music Videos are of the 90s, lead by Madonna and Michael Jackson. Though, I still find it unbelievable that Mariah Carey’s Heartbreaker [MV] cost $2.5M USD. That’s just gotta be money not well spent.

Instead, Dominic Sena made this… fairly simple quite rocking and powerful music video.

Also, overreaching here since this MV is from 1989, but did the award circles in 1990 ;P

You know you’re fucking awesome when you lipsync through a whole show and nobody gives a shit, because it’s still awesome. Though, I would argue that MJ should’ve stopped his performance in Dangerous.

Not since Michael Jackson began dazzling the pop music stage has there been any other pop act that has been able to define dancing the way Michael did. To this day and age, when dance pop music (in America) is stale, and Korea gives me pretty choreographed skill [1] — there’s still no one bringing anything new to the pop table.

You’re still missed MJ.
