Teetering on the edge…of stilettos

April 14, 2011 § Leave a comment

We’ve all done it. Hit that imaginary puddle of water or tripped over that painted line. And the results…not too pretty or nonexistent if no one is around. Quick double take over the shoulder and keep it moving.

Well, the queen of the little monsters, Lady Gaga, has taken her fair share of spills on the stage. When you’re teetering around in 12-inch platforms, how can you help but fall? Gaga’s latest tumble inspired an homage to the greatest spills…and recoveries that we could think up. We’ll start it off with our inspiration, GaGa in Houston.

Didn’t miss a note!

Another great performer and recoverer. Is that a word?

Can’t forget about B’s former group mate, Michelle, on 106 and Park.

Here’s our girl RiRi.

Now for the runway. One of the best of all time. Dying with laughter over here.

Please don’t think we’re mean. We do this all in fun and games. None of these ladies were hurt and like the true performers they are, they bit the dust but didn’t miss a moment of the show. We applaud all of them. If only we could be so graceful under pressure.

Bringing back that old school vibe

November 28, 2010 § Leave a comment

Something about Bruno Mars’ voice is enchanting. It has a delicacy, that makes “I wanna be a billionaire so fricking bad,” (one of my favorite lines of the year, by the way) sound just as smooth and supple as, “When I see your face, there’s not one thing I’d change, cause you’re amazing just the way you are.” Lyrics with completely different vibes, but from an artist who knows his delivery and sticks to it. You can’t help but enjoy his voice.

And you can’t forget his style. As old school as they come (peep that  doo-wop hair), but perfect for 2010 and beyond. He puts it all together in just the right way. We’re loving it.

We love when a new artist takes the stage and makes it his own from the outset, without a care as to how en vogue his style may be. The sights and sounds are just refreshing.

Bruno Mars has a special touch, and with his debut album Doo-Wops & Hooligans just released in October, we’re sure there’s much to be seen and heard from him. Here at BJ we’re wishing Mr. Mars a long, successful career, one where he never forgets what makes him so unique.
