Cee-Lo Green the soul machine is certainly living up to his name these days. Whether he’s singing about contemplating suicide or buying ladies drinks, he brings a full-force whirlwind of soul. And these days, he is turning out soulful sounds like a MACHINE.
You may be among those who are sick of “Crazy” thanks to the constant airplay on radio and video channels, or you may be among those who just realized how fabulous St. Elsewhere is. Either way, you probably want more Cee-Lo than can possibly be delivered. Or can it be?
Currently Cee-Lo is working on three musical projects…Gnarls Barkley with DJ Danger Mouse, The Heart Attack with Jack Splash of Plantlife, and an un-named collaboration with producer Jazze Pha.
If you haven’t heard Gnarls Barkley yet than you must live on another planet. The extremely bizarre duo has lucked out, becoming pop music superstars.

The Heart Attack is a collaboration that makes sense the minute you actually hear Jack Splash’s music
. It’s blatantly right up Cee-Lo’s alley.

Jazze Pha & Cee-Lo’s collabo Happy Hour was originally shelved, but will probably be released after the success of Gnarls Barkley. Honestly, there’s no reason it shouldn’t have been shelved because it’s the least interesting and uninspired of this bunch. But whatevs…the show goes on for Mr. Green.

On top of that, there are rumors that Cee-Lo will be involved in a Goodie Mobb reunion album. All of that, and we’re not even taking into account his solo career. Below you will find a video featuring Cee-Lo and a closing jam that was brought to my attention by Ms. Moondance Gypsyfox.

Silvia Night is congratulating you!! Why? Because she is so amazing, of course.
This Icelandic superstar caused quite the stir at the Eurovision Song Contest this year. When her song “Congratulations” was translated to English, the lyric “the vote is in, I’ll fucking win” was pointed out as being inappropriate by Eurovision exec Svante Stockselius. Silvia’s response to his statements were “I’ll fucking say what I fucking like.” In a press conference, she called out a reporter for looking her in the eyes and demanded that her bodyguard take her away. Despite all of this, Ms. Night gained quite a following. She appeared on MTV Japan, telling the VJ that she arrived in Japan to purchase a baby because they’re cute. The first thing she says to them is “Dont mention Björk cause she’s a retard. I feel really bad for her cause everyone is making fun of her.”
The profanity and generally offensive behavior didn’t stop there. After Silvia’s song did not “fucking” win, Silvia got violent with several reporters, stating “Somebody has been spreading lies about me and I think it is YOU…and you are a slut and I hate you.”

Unfortunately, Silvia’s performance went beyond this song. She is actually a character created by a member of the band Ske, Ágústa Eva Erlendsdóttir, and an actress on a semi-reality television show. Even the reporter who was carried out by her “bodyguard” was an actress. It actually took a while for the Icelandic and Eurovision audience to realize this. It only took me a few minutes thanks to youtube and wikipedia. At first I was disappointed, and then I realized what an amazing acting job all of this was.
TIGARAH was planning to change the world through the government after graduating as a political science major from Japan’s Keio University, but instead she decided to change the world with music. It was that simple. She’s traveled from Japan to Rio to the UK to L.A. to craft a delightful mixture of Baile Funk, UK Grime, etc. Her full album hasn’t even dropped yet, and I am shitting my drawers in excitement…literally.
Apparently, I’m not the only one. Tigarah has recently been the cat’s meow in LA— featured everywhere from the LA Times to cobrasnake. “Girl Fight” was featured in BLENDER’s top 20 downloads a few months ago. She’s catching on like the bird flu…which isn’t really catching on at all.
Beyond all this though, I can’t help but think she’s just a second-rate M.I.A. But even if she’ll never be as cool as the recently deported Ms. Arulpragasam…I don’t really mind.
