Demi Lovato Nude Photos

Demi_Lovato

Hold your horses, guys. The photos have not been released.

Not yet, at least.

According to RadarOnline, about 20 nude photos of singer and X Factor judge Demi Lovato have been emailed to the site for sale.

The photos are quite racy, including some nude bathtub pics and a few of Demi topless on a bed.

However, we’re not 100% that these photos are of Demi Lovato.

They do have indicators, though. The tattoo of 12 birds that Demi has on her arm is on the arm of the woman in the photo as well.

The person trying to sell the photos to RadarOnline states, “These are Demi. The collection I have show some nude, including face, some including parts of the body Demi is known for — tattoos, butt, chin. Then, I have pictures of her getting rowdy… I can guarantee you these photos are legitimately of Demi. “

Interestingly, last year, Demi staged a fake Twitter hack prank. In a tweet she wrote, “Demi’s twitter is hacked. Want to see Demi naked? Here it is..” She then posted a photo of a naked Barbie doll with her head photoshopped onto it.

This doesn’t seem to be one of Demi’s pranks this time.

I really hope these photos aren’t real. Demi Lovato and her publicist have not made any comments about this scandal.

If these photos leak, what could it mean for the X Factor season 3?

Whatever happens, it doesn’t look good so far.

Songs to Celebrate Independence Day

fourth of july

Today marks the 237th birthday of the United States.

It’s time to celebrate!

We’ve come a long way since 1776.

It’s a shame though, that the founding fathers didn’t have a soundtrack to go along with their signing of the Declaration of Independence.

Or did they?

In any case, here a few patriotic songs to listen to as you celebrate your independence in America, the land of the free.

1. The American Dream, Allstar Weekend: Because we all believe in the dream, don’t we? This song celebrates the fact that in America, it doesn’t matter who you are and where you’re from, you can make it in this world if you have the dream.

2. Party in the USA, Miley Cyrus: Every Fourth of July since 1776 has been a party, so let Miley remind you to live it up!

3. Made in the USA, Demi Lovato: Anything that has been fabricated here in the US has special meaning, so why not celebrate love as well as independence with this song from Demi’s new album?

4. Americano, Lady Gaga: Think about how hard the soldiers fought when Gaga sings “I will fight for, I have fought for how I love you.” And go a little gaga for America.

5. The Star-Spangled Banner, Frances Scott Key: At some point during the day, you’ve got to remember the national anthem. It’s only right.

Have a happy and safe Fourth of July!

‘The X Factor’ Taping at Nassau Coliseum

Yesterday I went out to Long Island’s Nassau Coliseum with my friend Kristell to watch The X Factor taping.

1371667180750-1

I’ve never been part of a live audience before, so this was pretty exciting for me.

However, my excitement disappeared when the clock struck 1pm and they weren’t letting us in. The ticket told us to arrive by then, so we got there around 12:25pm. We didn’t actually go inside until about 2:25.

The sun was unbearably hot. The soles of my feet were killing me and there’s a tan line from my flats on both of my feet.

When we got inside I was starving, so I bought cotton candy. It cost me $6.75. Since when does cotton candy cost six freaking dollars and seventy-five cents?!

Once Kristell and I sat down and I put the cotton candy in my mouth, I got excited again.

Jay Flats pumped the crowd up while we waited for the judges to arrive. We “got rowdy” to Martin Solveig and Dragonette’s “Hello” and Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe.”

Then they did a sound check. Amy, a member of the crew, sang “Rollin’ on the River.” She was really good.

After the sound check came the camera check. Audience members either got really shy, excited, or did nothing when they saw their faces on the big screen. The elderly were most likely to do nothing when the camera focused in on them.

At around three, judges Demi Lovato, Paulina Rubio, and Kelly Rowland showed up. They began auditions without Simon Cowell.

Simon didn’t arrive until three auditions later. When he walked in, the Franco Sisters were on stage and they thought the screams and cheers were for them. Unfortunately, as soon as he opened his mouth I wished he had gone back to wherever he came from.

He blamed Demi for his lateness, saying that she texted him to be there at 3:30 instead of 3. How dare he!

Then he told the older Franco sister off. I won’t spoil that part for you, but I think that what he said to her was unnecessary.

The youngsters were definitely blowing us all away. The three to look out for are 13 year olds Hannah Johnson and Ashley, and 15 year old Isaiah Austin.

Another interesting performer was Steven, a 40 year old blueberry farmer from South Korea who moved to the US when he was 18. I wasn’t expecting him to be any good, but gosh did he shock us all with his audition! He sang “Wind Beneath My Wings” starting at the final chorus. Wow is all I can say to that.

Then of course there were the trolls, Vincent and Tara. The sad part about the trolls is that they let them sing for longer than the people that can actually carry a tune.

During the breaks in between auditions, there was a girl in my section with a Demi poster that had lights on it who kept screaming Demi’s name at the top of her lungs. By 4:30 she hardly had a voice. But she just kept on screaming. And Demi just kept on ignoring her.

Overall my first experience as an audience member was okay. The waiting and the food prices were annoying, but otherwise I had a good time.

 

Album Review: Demi Lovato’s ‘Demi’

Image

Tuesday, May 14th, 2013 marked the release of Demi Lovato’s senior album, Demi.

This excited me, because any mention of this girl opening her mouth to belt out a tune is an opportunity that should not be taken for granted!

Demi took to the streets of NYC to promote her album on the day of its release. “Buy it on iTunes!” she kept screaming at the passersby.

This girl knows how to get the attention of the New Yorker!

Ex-boyfriend Joe Jonas tweeted, “Congrats @ddlovato on the new record! So happy for you!”

Aww! See? There’s no hard feelings!

Rumor has it that some of the songs on the album are about her ex, Wilmer Valderrama. Oooo, JUICY!

Which ones do you think are about him? “Shouldn’t Come Back”? ”

The album is currently number two on iTunes.

Below is the track listing:

1. Heart Attack

2. Made in the USA

3. Without the Love

4. Neon Lights

5. Two Pieces

6. Nightingale

7. In Case

8. Really Don’t Care (feat. Cher Lloyd)

9. Fire Starter

10. Something That We’re Not

11. Never Been Hurt

12. Shouldn’t Come Back

13. Warrior

If bought at Target, the album features a bonus track titled, “I Hate You, Don’t Leave Me.”

The next single is rumored to be “Made in the USA.” Can’t wait!

I had a listen and put together a video review for your viewing pleasure.

Enjoy!

 

Prince William and Kate’s Second Anniversary

Image

I remember Will and Kate’s wedding on April 29, 2011 at Westminister Abbey. I was a first year student at Bard Early College Queens at the time. I woke up at 6am to watch a portion of the wedding on ABC 7, then took a shower and watched some more as I ate my breakfast.

It was 7:25am—five minutes after I was supposed to have left for school.

But they hadn’t kissed yet.

So, naturally, I wanted to skip school. But my mother wasn’t having it.

I proceeded to grab my school bag and rush through the door. Then I realized I had forgotten my keys.

I ran back to get them, ran across the street and then remembered I left my retainer.

That was a pretty hectic spring morning for me.

Nonetheless, I made it to school on time. With 15 minutes to spare!

When I got home I saw pictures of the kiss, so it was all good.

Prince William and Kate celebrated their wedding anniversary on April 26th with a private dinner in London.

How cute!

The six months pregnant Kate Middleton will be ready to blossom in no time!

I cannot wait to see their lovely offspring this summer!

These two are my model couple. Even though my dad thinks it’s stupid, I have a photo of them on my dresser drawer, along with LIGHTS (Valerie Poxleitner), Demi Lovato, and a my best friend at graduation.

I love them as a couple, and I hope one day I can share a romance like their’s with the one that I love.

Take a trip down memory lane with a few highlights from the royal wedding: http://eonli.ne/187uUdN

Happy Anniversary Will and Kate!

This Week in Music: Mike Tompkins’ “Shake the Ground”

Wednesday, April 24, 2013 was a big day for Mike Tompkins.

Why?Shake the Ground

The genius of a musician released his first original single.

ORIGINAL.

NOT A COVER.

For those of you who have yet to meet the Canadian YouTube phenom, I’ll show you what this guy is about:

Yeah. His voice is his instrument. Literally.

He does covers like this regularly. Most of the songs he remixes with his mouth are of the pop genre, including Demi Lovato, Rihanna, and even Owl City.

You can imagine how excited his fans were when they learned of his original single.

The possibilities are endless when it comes to song beats, since he can rely on his own instrumentation. So would he choose a ballad or something fast paced? Heavy base or loud snare? Vocals or instrumental?

I was itching to know. So I went onto Spotify and listened.

And I loved it.

At first I was kind of disappointed. I stared at my computer thinking, no, Mike Tompkins can do way more than just a chorus of “Oh”s and a steady snare.

And then the beat dropped.

He went electronic on us.

Holy crap, that was unexpected!

“Shake the Ground” is a song about what it feels like to be in the party scene, or even on stage, where the flashing lights transform you.

He sings, “Somehow I feel born again tonight.” The feeling of bursting out of your own skin to show the world who you really are shines through in the lyrics of this song.

This song should definitely be on your next party playlist.

“Shake the Ground” probably describes exactly how Mike Tompkins felt when he performed his original song at Playlist Live.

The lyric video features scenes from his performance at Playlist 2013. No word of an official video yet.

Have a listen here. I dare you to challenge his Skrillex-like capabilities!
