Despite our best efforts, everyone has moments of failure in their life. We’re talking about small fails: falling on ice, getting hit in the head with a soccer ball. All you can do is pick yourself up and laugh after…. and maybe show those clips to the entire world so they can laugh too. It’s all very cathartic, you see.
Bon Iver, aka the love of my life, released his official video for “Towers” and it’s haunting! The video features a lonely old man walking slowly through an eerie forest to the shoreline. The “tower builder” gets in his rowboat, then something devastating happens.
The scenery in the video is beautiful. It was shot on Native American land in Washington state. It’s hard to tell exactly what the message is, but it explores our relationship with nature and is a testament to North American land preservation.
The song will be released as a single in March.
Bonnie Bear Bon Iver, who is fresh off his Grammy win, can do no wrong in my eyes.
Britney Spears made an appearance on KIIS FM’s On Air with Ryan Seacrest radio show last week, officially dropping her new single Till The World Ends and announcing her plans for a summer tour.
Spears’ album Femme Fatale drops on March 29th and is currently being labelled as the ‘comeback’ album. Although Spears has released two CDs since her mental breakdown and head-shaving fiasco, Blackout and Circus, this album is known as her comeback album since she is actually doing promotion, performances, and taking risks in her music.
Spears is also set to perform in San Francisco on the 29th for Good Morning America, in correlation with the release of her album. This performance is also highly anticipated by fans, as it will be her first televised performance in a while.
Spears sat down with Ryan to chat about her album, her personal life, and plans for the tour. Spears said she is currently happy, healthy, and ready to tour, and that this album is some of her best work to date. The album includes collaborations with artists such as will.i.am and Sabi.
I’m personally rooting hardcore for Britney. As a dedicated fans for years, I endured her mental breakdowns, hair choices, and gas-station fiascos. But that’s all behind me now, and I’m hoping she returns with full force and passion. She seemed to sound happier and more vested on the radio show, so that is a good sign. Her music video for Hold It Against Me, which was released a couple of weeks ago, also showed a more daring and edgy Britney, so I’m hoping this will transcend onto her album.
What’s really funny though is while Britney is on her way up, Christina is on her way down. Aguilera, who was recently arrested for public intoxication, is in between a messy divorce and public downfall. To all the Aguilera fans who have bashed Britney throughout the years, ha, who’s laughing now?
Summit Entertainment has announced their vampire-hit “Twilight” will be available for fans on March 21, featuring a two-disc DVD set. Although this may sound like just another movie on DVD, the makers of “Twilight” have decided to change things up.
The vampire-romance will be ready to be picked off the shelves by midnight, and on a Saturday, as opposed to the usual Tuesday release for DVDs.
The DVD version will come with many bonus features, including audio commentary by Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart as well as Catherine Hardwicke who directed the flick, a documentary of the making-of process, music videos from Linkin Park, Muse and Paramore and of course, deleted scenes.
A few months ago in November, the highly anticipated vampire-flick made its debut with a $35 million opening day, followed by a $70.6 million opening weekend. There’s no doubt these vampires will have fans running.
