Bettye LaVette’s cabaret act is “too much of a good thing”. LaVette’s entry into the heights of cabaret – she says she dreamed as a young woman of taking over for Bobby Short at the Carlyle someday – is for sure a sight to be seen. I have only one problem with LaVette’s cabaret act – it’s too long by half.
Rihanna said it best when she sang, “we fell in love in a hopeless place.” At least that’s the way it seemed when Anthony and I met last weekend at that sex party. I knew something was there, because I normally work a sex party like a fat girl at a buffet. I like to try a little bit of everything, and I’m not too shy to go back for seconds on the good pieces. But this time was different.
Okay so this one is a little closer to mainstream dance-pop — but at least it’s in Korean! Most K-Pop videos feature twinky Korean boys doing incredible choreography (owing as much to martial arts and traditional Asian dance forms as to hip-hop) set to a lame imitation of American pop-R&B. This one is different: The song, as fits the title, has real fire, the fashion is very forward, the cinematography excellent, and the choreography truly off the charts. The Koreans are coming!
