VH1 is bringing back its “VH1 Divas” concert series Sept. 17 after a four-year hiatus. But don’t get too excited yet. Some idiot over at the network thinks Miley Cyrus, Leona Lewis, Kelly Clarkson, and Adele should join the ranks of Mary J. Blige, Cher, Aretha Franklin, and Celine Dion, who have all been honored on the broadcast concert before. These four young singers, however, are not divas — they’re not even on their way to becoming divas! Keep reading »

If you’re not getting enough of Mariah Carey in the tabloids and press these days, just wait a few months. Carey has been in discussions about creating “Glitter” the musical, as we’re calling the Broadway production about her life.

Today, my friend Jon and I got a little girly and watched/listened to Leona Lewis’s “Bleeding Love.” A little-known fact about “Bleeding Love” is that it was written by Ryan Tedder of OneRepublic and Jesse McCarthney of BOP magazine. The song is currently the number one song at the iTunes Store, and it was the top single of 2007 in the U.K. There are two videos for the song, a U.K. video, and a U.S. one. We accidentally watched the U.K. version, but it is much more dramatic than the one meant for us, which features Leona riding around Times Square in a taxi. I guess they thought the domestic violence might not be as big of a hit here?
Catherine: Are you in the mood for a little Leona Lewis in the afternoon?
Jon: I think so.
C: You think so? You know so! Keep reading »
