Keri Hilson

Keri Hilson made a comment on the song “Pretty girl rock”, quoted directly from her, "It's not really as vain as it sounds, although I do feel those things about myself. I really want people to take away how they should feel about themselves. You should feel like you're the baddest “girl” in the room when you walk in the room or that you are beautiful despite what society says. You're under heavy scrutiny, your Twitter profile and your MySpace pictures and Facebook and this that and the other, let alone walking in a room; you know how insecure that can be sometimes. I want everyone to listen to that record, from little girls to women, and just feel like they can do the pretty girl rock [dance] and they can sing "don't hate me 'cause I'm beautiful" 'cause we all are." (

Keri Hilson wrote this song to inspire those women out there to be able to be the prettiest no matter who they are, or what they are.

Aye, now do the pretty girl rock rock rock
Do the pretty girl rock rock rock
Do the pretty girl rock rock
All my ladies do the pretty girl rock rock rock
Do the pretty girl rock rock rock
Do the pretty girl rock rock rock
Do the pretty girl rock
Get yourself together don't hate (never do it),
jealousy is the ugliest trait (don't ever do it)
I can talk about it cause I know that I'm pretty
And if you know it too then ladies sing it with me

Top Music artist for November 2, 2010 !!

"We R Who We R" by Ke$ha was the top song for November 2, 2010.
Ke$ha was born on March 1, 1987. Her mother’s name is Pebe Sebert, Ke$ha’s birth name is Kesha Rose Sebert. Kesha had a very difficult youth, with her family not being the wealthiest, also being born in Los Angeles, California.
“We R Who We R” was written by Ke$ha because she wanted those who were being bullied about who they were to be able to stand up for themselves. She wanted to let them know that they weren’t alone. In the cause of this group of kids many of them were committing suicide. Ke$ha wanted this song to become a “pride anthem”, so that people would be able to know that they don’t have to go through things on their own.  And to let them know that it is ok for them to be themselves. That’s what makes people so special, is because they are who they are.

Top pop music artist for October 19, 2010 !

P!NK with her pink hair !

The top pop music artist for October 19, 2010 was Pink with "Raise Your Glass". This song was released just 13 days before it became a top song.
Pinks birth name is Alecia Beth Moore, she was born on September 8th, 1979, in Doylestown, Pennsylvania. Her parent’s names are Judith Moore, and her father Jim Moore. Pink is a very outspoken vocal artist. Many of her songs have been major hits! Pink got her name from being embarrassed at a young age when she turned bright red from blushing so much. When she started going by “P!NK”, she had dyed her hair pink.
With Pink being such a hit with all of her amazing songs, she is also an Award-winning Grammy American singer/songwriter. Her sense of style has also made an impact on many people around the world, which includes the UK, Austria, and Australia.
 Pink wrote “Raise Your Glass” because she said that she "wanted to write a song about underdogs. The protagonists of many of her hit singles have never been part of the popular crowd.” She wanted to be able to show that those people who weren’t the best and most popular still get the notice and recognition that they need.
Here is part of the lyrics…


“So raise your glass if you are wrong
In all the right ways
All my underdogs
We will never be, never be
Anything but loud and nitty gritty
Dirty little freaks
Won't you come on, and come on and
Raise your glass
Just come on, and come on and
Raise your glass

So if you're too school for cool
And you're treated like a fool
You can choose to let it go
We can always, we can always
Party on our own”

Top pop music artist for September 9, 2010 !

The top pop artist for September 9, 2010 is Katy Perry with her top song “Teenage Dream”.

Kate Hudson

Katy Perry’s birth name is Kathryn Elizabeth Hudson, she is well known for her up beat songs. Many of her listeners wait and listen for the next song of Katy Perry’s career. Katy Perry was born on October 25, 1984, in Santa Barbara, CA. When growing up, she was the daughter of parents who were both pastors. So she grew up in a very religious household. She was not allowed to listen to certain music because they believed it was bad for her.
Later on in her life when she was about 17, she started her career as a Christian artist. While being in the spotlight as Katy Hudson, she began to notice and listen to other artists of different genres. Katy Hudson changed her name to Katy Perry because she believed that she could get it easily confused with the actress Kate Hudson. Katy changed her last name to “Perry” from “Hudson”, because her mother’s maiden name is Perry.
Teenage Dream was written because it tells of someone older falling in love and the love of their life is making them feel like they’re a teenager in love all over again.
“You think I'm pretty
Without any make-up on
You think I'm funny
When I tell the puch line wrong
I know you get me
So I'll let my walls come down, down

Before you met me
I was a wreck
But things were kinda heavy
You brought me to life
Now every February
You'll be my valentine, valentine
No regrets, just love
We can dance until we die
You and I
We'll be young forever

You make me
Feel like
I'm living a Teenage Dream
The way you turn me on
I can't sleep
Let's runaway
And don't ever look back
Don't ever look back”

Top Music artist on Aug, 2010 !

For all of the month of August, "Love the Way You Are" by Rihanna featuring Eminem.
This song was one of thee biggest hits that either one of them ever had. They also have a part. 2 to this song. Most people such as myself think that part 1. of  "Love the Way You Are" is the best out of the two.
Some Lyrics from the song.

Just gonna stand there
And watch me burn
But that's alright
Because I like
The way it hurts
Just gonna stand there
And hear me cry
But that's alright
Because I love
The way you lie
I love the way you lie
I love the way you lie
This is a song that tells people about a bad relationship that a woman is in. And isnt able to get out of it because her boyfriend is very abusive towards her when she tries to leave.
Not anything I would want in my life. But there are people who go through this. But I do like listening to this song because it gives others courage to get help.

Top music artist for June 1, 2010 !!

Top music artist for June 1, 2010 is Mike Posner with “Cooler Than Me”.
The song “Cooler Than Me” was released in April and by the time June came around it was a hit not only in the US, but also in Australia, Ireland, and Canada.
Mike Posner, his birth name Michael Posner, was born in Michigan.

The song "Cooler Than Me" came about because in college at Duke University, Mike fell for a girl. She snubbed him and thought she was better than him. Hence the lyrics,

“You got designer shades just to hide your face and
You wear them around like you’re cooler than me
And you never say “Hey” or remember my name
And it’s probably ‘cause you think your cooler than me”

He made the right decision in writing this story about the girl who treated him wrong, but he won't tell who the girl is because he doesn't feel like she has the right to be actually have her name out there, to make her head bigger than what it must already be.
Mike Posner is a very good artist and am sure that he has many more amazing songs to come.
