This Week in Music: Selena Gomez’s Leaked “Love Will Remember”

What’s life without a little bit of leaked music, eh?

love will remember

Yesterday, Selena Gomez’s song “Love Will Remember”, which will be released on the Stars Dance album on July 23rd, got leaked.

She doesn’t seem that upset about it either. She embraced it, posting a video to her YouTube sending fans to the song via Soundcloud link.

Yay?

The big hype about this song is the fact that the intro features a voicemail. Said voicemail might be a real voicemail from her ex Justin Bieber.

Well.

I will admit that it does sound like Bieber. And its a pretty sweet message.

Is it wrong that this little detail reminded me of that article I read on Hollyscoop about Justin Bieber (aka Bitter Bieber, haha) banning all Selena Gomez songs from his photoshoot?

I bet this song is at the very top of his banned list now!!

Selena Gomez admitted to InStyle that the song is about Bieber. “That’s the most personal track on the record, for sure. I think it’s a sweet way of releasing it. It’s not an aggressive approach to what people are probably expecting,” she said.

“Love Will Remember” is a ballady type song. It’s not too slow, but the tempo is light enough to evoke more of an appreciation for the lyrics.

I think the lyrics are the best part of this song. Writers Antonina Armato, Desmond Child, David Jost and T. James did a mighty fine job of working with Selena to create such profound lyrics.

My favorite lyrics from the song are the first verse and the bridge. I especially like the part that goes:

Now’s all we got,
And time can’t be bought,
I know it inside my heart
Forever will forever be ours…

I also really like the bridge where Selena Gomez sings, “Somewhere in forever we’ll dance again.”

So romantic! Brings a tear to my eye!

I think the underlying “Oh”‘s in the chorus are a nice touch as well.

I’m not going to lie, I didn’t really like the song too much when I heard it the first time. It took three listens to really get into it.

Can’t wait to hear the rest of the album later this month!

Westboro Baptist Church Calls Taylor Swift a Whore

Where do I even begin with this?

Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka, Kansas has made plans to picket Taylor Swift’s concert at the Sprint Center in Kansas City on August 3rd, 2013.

Why?

Because according to a press release from the church, “@TaylorSwift13 works her ‘girl next door’ country-singer shtick, while hopping from one young man to the next and strutting across the world stage like a proud whore.”

In an interview with RadarOnline, Ben Phelps, the grandson of  the group’s leader, stated, “This girl is a whore. Who else is gonna say that if it’s not the church of the Lord Jesus? She’s coming into our backyard. We’re gonna go preach to her.”

Oh, and that’s not the end of it. Apparently its Taylor’s job to preach to her followers.

Phelps goes on to say that Taylor Swift pretends to be a “good Christian, but she’s not.” According to him, Taylor should use her influence to “promote the standards of God,” to young girls instead of “whoredom, fornication … that filthy lifestyle.”

Ok now, they just went WAY too far.

As a Christian and a Taylor Swift fan, this really boils my blood.

Taylor Swift is the last celebrity I would even think of associating with whorish, filthy behavior.

That’s actually one of the reasons why I love her so much. Taylor Swift isn’t one to behave in such ways.

When was the last time you heard about Taylor Swift in the tabloids for reckless driving or crazy partying?

NEVER.

Since she doesn’t live “la vida loca”, the media needs to write something about Taylor Swift, so they just pick on her love life. Because that’s her only fault: the fact that she hasn’t been able to settle with someone for long term.

So what? That doesn’t make her a whore. As a matter of fact, if I’m not mistaken, the reason why she hasn’t been able to settle with one guy long term is because she won’t give it up!

Isn’t that the opposite of a whore? Last time I checked it was.

Back in January, when Taylor Swift and Harry Styles broke up, the tabloids speculated that it was because she’s a prude.

A source revealed that “Harry found Taylor a little sexually uninterested.”

The same source also stated, “What Taylor doesn’t get is that the guys keep dumping her because she’s being a prude.”

I honestly don’t understand how being a prude is synonymous to being a whore. I thought those two words were considered antonyms.

I think Taylor Swift is a wonderful human being. From the way she dresses to the way she carries herself, she is a wonderful role model. Her fans can learn a lot from her just by watching the way she lives her life.

Westboro needs to get their facts straight. Pull out a dictionary before you start going around calling people whores.

And while you’re at it Westboro, here’s a cherry to put on top of your little Sundae:

“Do not judge others, and you will not be judged.” – Matthew 7:1, NLT

Now eat it. And leave Taylor alone!!

 

Amanda Bynes vs Rihanna Twitter Feud

rihanna and amanda

So I guess this is what happens when a child star retires at 26.

Amanda Bynes has hit rock bottom.

And she just won’t stop rolling downhill.

Between the head shaving, the dimple piercings, the nose job, the weight loss, and her recent bong-throwing arrest, it doesn’t look like its going to stop any time soon.

Twitter doesn’t seem to be helping either.

Just yesterday, Amanda wrote on Twitter:

@rihanna Chris Brown beat you because you’re not pretty enough

Wow.

Where did that come from?!

Before this tweet, she wrote, “@rihanna you look so ugly trying to be white.”

Unless I’ve been missing something, I don’t remember any communication between Amanda and Rihanna before these insane tweets.

So this was completely random.

Rihanna did not turn the other cheek on this one.

She tweeted: “ya see what happens when they cancel Intervention?”

Amanda wrote back: “@rihanna unlike ur fugly faced self I don’t do drugs! U need the intervention dog! I met ur ugly face in person! U aren’t pretty u know it!”

These tweets have been deleted from Amanda’s Twitter, but the power of screen capture has salvaged them.

The only logical explanation for Amanda’s seemingly random tweet to Rihanna could be the rumored romance between Drake and Rihanna a few years ago.

It’s still possible that she wants Drake to “murder her vagina.”

Amanda went way too far with this one. Implying that a person deserves to be beaten because of the way they look is very disrespectful.

Thankfully, Rihanna isn’t naive enough to believe Amanda’s comments.

Imagine if this tweet was sent to a girl with low self esteem issues. This could have driven her to commit suicide.

Amanda’s mental health is clearly not where it needs to be.

Someone needs to help this girl before things take a turn for the worst!

What Really Happened to Robsten

Premiere Of Summit Entertainment's "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1" - Arrivals

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you probably already know that Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have broken up.

Yup. AGAIN.

The two began dating around the end of 2008 when the first movie of the Twilight Saga premiered. This trend of becoming a real life couple off-screen is not new, as we have seen it happen with Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens of the High School Musical franchise.

Not even Zanessa made it.

In 2010 the producer of Eclipse, Wyck Godfrey, stated “The thing that I think about is, ‘Oh my God, I hope they stay together.’ Because it could be awkward on set in the next movie if they have a huge falling out. It’s like, wow, they have to portray this love story through two more movies. God, I hope they stay together; please stay together.” To be honest, I hoped the same. The chemistry would be off if they broke up during the filming of the Twilight Saga.

The couple attended premieres together, celebrated birthdays together, and won best kiss at the MTV Movie Awards for three years in a row.

Inseparable, right?

Think again.

In July 2012 there were even rumors about them tying the knot but Robert Pattinson denied them.

Later that same month, on July 24th, 2012 we learned of KStew’s cheating scandal with Rupert Sanders, her costar in Snow White and the Huntsmen. Shame on the both of them! Sanders is a married man!

So they broke up. And then RPatz forgave her and let her back into his life. They began living together in March 2013.

She PROMISED Robert that she would never see or contact Sanders again.

This weekend they broke up again, and for a while we were uncertain as to why.

I thought it was because of an article I saw a few weeks ago about Kristen getting mad at Robert because they were living in his mom’s house. It wasn’t so much just that, but the fact that his mom wasn’t letting them have any privacy…

Or sexy time. Whichever way you want to put it.

But no. That wasn’t it. Kristen broke her promise and Robert found text messages on her phone to Sanders. ON ROBERT’S BIRTHDAY.

Gee, Kristen. Couldn’t have thought of a better birthday gift??!!

Sigh.

I guess forever is only in the Twilight Saga.

Since the break up Kristen has been leaning on Taylor Swift for support. Never even knew they were buddies. I guess heartbreak brings us girls together.
