Kpop: CL/Diplo/Riff Raff/OG Maco - Doctor Pepper MV

Oh come on! You watched it only for CL. Not Diplo or the other dude.

B*TCH I GUESSED IT! ... And I was right, wasn't I?

CL's beat dropped a couple of months ago but the video is here! Keep a open mind as this is not a Kpop song but a Kpop artist doing an American hip hop song collab, please? So tired of the kpop stans giving this so much hate. I'm judging her as if she were a hip hop artist in America for that reason.

Also, THIS IS NOT HER USA DEBUT. Don't get sad over this song.

The Good: Catchy as faq. Like the monotone melody (if that exists) and ratchet delivery of CL's verse. Riff Raff and OG Maco held their own as well.

The Bad: Basic hip hop song. She sounds like any other rapper and leaves me feeling unconvinced. I know CL for her usual awesomeness but most Americans don't know who she is yet. I'm not worried because she is getting good exposure for this song but will the kpop fans be with her? I don't know.

The Ugly: IT'S A COLLAB! Keep the high expections low for any hip hop collab. It's just a simple showcase for rappers. Nothing more. You know the GBZ, The Baddest Female, can do better than that.

I give this 3 out of 5 Blinded Pikachus

Now where my bad girls at? Where you at?

JESC: Ukraine Finalist Preview Reactions

Hannah Katrina - Fly

She could do alright. Sounds a little UNICEF for Africa ish but it's likable.

Alisa Panchuk - Spivay

Good voice but the song is like meh.

Sofia Dobryvecher - My Khochemo Myru

Weird notes. Is the heart important in her performance? We'll see on Saturday.

Voice Land - Dytnstvo

Nice name. They remind me of San Marino's The Pepperments from last year's JESC. They sound like hot mess but that may change.

Nina Boikova - Rozmalyuy Moyi Sny

I've faith in her. I'm interested in what that art set in the background is about.

Victoriya Svyatogor - Sylna. Vilna.

Sounds like it came straight out of Ukraine. If it gets picked, would Europe like it? IDK.

Fresh - Zhyvy Na Povnu

It's Symphonik with a more fun song. Lots of jumping. Might be lost though.

Anna Trincher - Pochny z Sebe

She'll do ok. I love that she doesn't over do it. She's got a good voice.

Yarina Taras - Povir u Chudesa

Grabbed me instantly. I like the stand she's on. Looks like she stole Symphonik and made them her backup singers. lol

Sofia Yaremova - Salsa

Mixed reaction about this one but Ukraine is known for revamping songs so this could do very well if remade.

Mariya Karogodska - V Sertsi Muzyka Ye

My fav so far. Something that kids would like. Love the concepts and the light up shoes. lol Very colorful personality.

Nazar Stinyanskiy - Come On

He's got something going on. Good voice.

Zabava - Lety

Reminds me of Symphonik... Not promising. Don't get me wrong but this songs like the song Symphonik would've followed up on.

Anastasiya Tkachuk - Moya Zemlya

Slavic but sounds Iberian. I can feel the sun and sand when the beat drops in. lol But am I the only one? Hmm. But Hey HEY!

JESC: Georgia's 3 girl - 1 boy Group. Bring Out The Weird And Crazy!!!





Georgia does it again! With Bzikebistudio, they will bring a psycho, crazy, zany, wild, but child-like experience to the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2015 in Sofia, Bulgaria! 

You want to know the group? Alright then!

Elene Kezhrishvili (11) - she loves to swim and jams to hip hop music

Lizi Tavberidze (12) - Likes to sing, dance, draw, and play football (football or asso. football IDK), not to be confused with Lizi Pop from last year but could be just as interesting and exciting

Tako Gagnidze (11) - Enjoys singing, dancing, and drawing like her bandmate Lizi. He name makes me hungry.
Yes, you are!
Data Pavliashvili (12) - He likes to swim and enjoys playing football. The only dude in the group but looks at other 1 men groups Georgia has sent and tell me how he's not important...

Oh yeah! Get ready for Georgia!!!

Eurovision: Inga & Anush - Aprelu April

So dramatic.

Kpop: ANDA - Touch MV Korean Miley Cyrus!!!


The Good: Sensual sexy but not sloppy sexy. Fanboys, run away! This is for the ladies but it's not lesbian! Good for a house party full of red cups and one night stands. She stands above the rest of solo korean artists.

And that dance though! "cause if you gone be mine/you don't have to waste your time

The Bad: It's americanized and the fanboys aren't gonna feel it. Plus, kpop females are about playing with the idea of sex but never giving it all up. She's not offense - actually, it's quite tasteful outside the booty pops and the Rihanna-style crotch patdowns - but there's not a lot of fantasy. A lot of fun but no fantasy.

The Ugly: Anda had some FUUUUN! with this vid. You can tell she's no big time idol but she'd have fun at least charting on Mnet and Melon... And that's hard to do

3.5/5 Handclaps.


And ill you are. SO SIIIIIIICK!

The Good: Clubber song by Bravesound. The horn punches and the modest beats of bass made this electronica piece worth moving to under the bright lights of the club.

The Bad: Pretty Unremarkable. Bravesound improved it but still pretty bland for the most part. The hook wasn't even all that catch. Meh.

The Ugly: It's HELLOVENUS... Sorry if I've offended but I call a spade a spade.

2/5 Beat Drops. Good effort. Fans will like but this will be forgotten after a couple of weeks. Especailly with SHINee, Cheetah, and the Wonder Girls eating up Melon Charts.

CL Performing At Mad Decent Block Party



Put it on ice, doctor pepper!

Eurovision: Tamar Kaprelin - The Otherside

6 Eurovision Stars Come Together For a Song.

And it's actually GOOD! (Better than Genealogy!)

American member Tamar Kaprelin brought together Genealogy bandmate from Japan Stephanie Topalian, Elhaida Dani (Albania), Elina Born (Estonia), & Maria Elena Kyriakou (Greece) got togehter for a basic ballad about seeing another's pain... From the other side.


The Good: Tamar had 4 other Eurovision stars got together and made a song and it WASN'T A MESS! :O 12 points to her! The song had a natural feel that sounds like it was made and agreed over a cup of coffee in the morning, then they turned it into a UNICEF style international number.

Here are some examples if you don't know what I meant meant by UNICEF style songs


But it's a good song.

The Bad: Basic ballad. The message if beautiful and if even just one person in the world could hear it and it inspires them then it did it's job. Sadly, nothing new. (see songs above).

The Ugly: lol Tamar got 4 Eurovision participants with little to no chance of winning ESC 2015 (Sorry, Elina.) to sing with her.

Score: 3/5 ESC Participants

Kpop: Wonder Girls - I Feel You MV I WAS WRONG!!!


The comeback wasn't average at all. It's actually pretty good.


The Good: The 80s are back! Wonder Girls has made another hit. Yes, we entered inside Sunmi's panty party but what a party! The girls actually look natural and normal. Not at all cutesy and agaeyo-filled like most girl groups are doing to day so their natrual charm shines though. Don't expect dancing because they'll be too busy playing actual instruments and keeping to a cool retro vibe. And that rap part... OOOH!

Because cool kids don't dance. (BURN!)

The Bad: They don't dance and WHO ISN'T DOING A 80s THEMED SONG! Can Korea love their legendary unnies as usual or will the lack of choreography throw them off. Also, it's very american in taste... Or would Koreans even care?

The Ugly: Sunmi's croutch party... Don't eat the chips and dip.

Song gets a big 4/5 stars. Wonder what the Wonder Girls would wonder up next. I wonder...



The music video shoot will be promoted in Korea and the United States. What song, IDK. (Pray it's not Doctor Pepper)

Remeber the man working on promoting the album is Scooter Braun... Does Ariana Grande, Psy, Justin Beiber (don't cringe), and Carly Rae Jepsen ring a bell?

I have such high hopes for her... As rachet as that song is. (rachet = ghetto = uncivilized)

Kpop: SHINee - Married To The Music MV Craziness

Oh my GERD. The violence! The horror! The confetti!

I'm downplaying it but there was some serious violence. Shawols - you love your idols too much? Look away. These dudes are getting DECAPITATED and it is AWESOME!

Eyeballs getting knocked out.

Lips snatched off of faces.

Heads chopped off.

Noses ripped out.

Vomiting confetti!

Not for the Faint of Shawol heart.

The Good: Odd and funky beat the fits with the "Odd" album title in a good way. It feels like a follow up from "View" (I'ma keep mentioning that video, so sue me) but it's a good one. Key gets more sing parts here and we'll all been wanting that. Taemin and Jonghyun have hogged the spotlight for every other vid and now Key gets a chance. :)

The Bad: Cartoonish violence and the sensitive SHINee fans that watch it. Seriously, look away and wait for their comeback stage. Your hearts will thank you.

The Ugly: Hey! Halloween ain't until 2 months from now but Taemin already got his costume... No wait. That's his make up everyday. lol *cheap joke* Wonder if Koreans will love this song on October 31st or will BOYFRIEND do it again like last year.

What did vampires had to do with witches? Do BOYFRIEND fangirls care? NOPE!

Kpop: Cheetah - My Number MV

Hmm... Meh.

I expected better from the winner of Unpretty Rapstar.

Or maybe I'm too hash.

It's great music video with your usual Korean Hip Hop rugged and rough set up and the occasional Cholo or two.

Good: The MV is pretty cool. The beat's pretty nice and the imagery is gritty and feels like a cool ass house party. Not much else to say because...

Bad: It's like every other K-Hip Hop female rap song. Musical production wasn't the highest priority as it's a good beat but very minimalistic and offered little to the effect. She's choosy. She changes her men like phone numbers until she got the one. This just songs like Cheetah didn't even need to rap.

Ugly: YOU KNOW YOU CAN DO BETTER THAN THAT!!! Her rap game was lame in this song but we all know she has skills! Quit hiding and give us your best effort or cut the ppl who gave you this average booty song. Be big booty. THINK BIG BOOTY!

Europop... Sighs... Where Do I Begin.

Why I don't commit to Europop you ask? Well...

There's too many scene!!!

Scandipop, Dutch pop, French pop, Iberian pop (Spain and Portugal), Greece/Cyprus pop, Balkan pop (Serbia, Montenegro and others), Slavic pop (Moldova, Ukraine, Poland, and so many others), Turkish music, and *shakes in fear* Russian music.

And there's enough Russian music coverage for days.

I CAN'T DO IT! Oh no no no! lol

Kpop is a world by itself.

Eurovision is manageable and lets me cover some Europop

Now I'm not saying I'm gonna stop at those two; I just need a plan to post and talk about the music I love without being going on blogging overload. MVs, Teasers, Reviews, and details on the music market and the artists themselves takes a lot from you. That being said, don't expect a miracle any time soon.

With Bitter Love,


Scandipop, Vpop, Bollywood, and PopAraby

I'm extending my world beat pop music posts to music from:

Scandipop: Sweden (#1 country in pop music), Denmark, Finland (#1 country in heavy metal and death metal in the world), Iceland, and Norway (has a good RnB scene)

Vpop: Veitneses pop music because it's coming up in the Asian music scene.

Bollywood: Indian pop music. Mostly made for movies


PopAraby: music in Arabic. Mostly from Cario, Egypt and Beruit, Lebonon since those are the biggest music scenes.

I may expand to Europop but they're are so many scenes in Europe.
