On Friday, March 14, 2008, our favorite brothers performed live at my very own school, George Mason University, in the Patriot Center!

Jonas Brothers

The Jonas Brothers are no longer opening shows for the very popular Hannah Montana or….Miley Cyrus–they’re flying solo!

The members of the band Kevin Jonas, Joe Jonas, and Nick Jonas are dreaming big at a young age. Nick was actually the one who was found by professionals and the brothers decided to form a band once Nick was signed to Columbia Records (now they are signed under Hollywood Records since February 2007).

They’re self-titled second album, Jonas Brothers, was released in the year 2007 of August and reached number five on the Billboard Hot 200 chart in its first week. They are becoming more successful by the minute!

I could not believe that people actually liked listening to these “kids” but after listening to their song, “When You Look Me In the Eyes,” I knew I judged them too fast.

They’re great! They may be “little” or better said, young, but they’re music is big. Check them out!

She’s the queen of pop.

She’s always been an entertainer.

She’s looked the same since you can ever remember.

Pop stars want to be just like her.

She debuted in 1982, her last album was called “Confessions on a Dance Floor” in 2005, and now she’s back!

That’s right! Madonna is back with her latest album “Hard Candy” which will be released on April 28, 2008! This CD will contain several featured artists including, Pharrell, Justin Timberlake, and Timbaland. “Hard Candy” is expected to have a hip-hop and R&B feel but still keeping that “Madonna” vibe to it.

Here’s her single “4 Minutes” featuring Justin Timberlake and Timbaland off of her newest album “Hard Candy”

Our favorite pop star Britney Spears made a risky move. Her most recent music video, “Break the Ice“, doesn’t feature Britney, it features Britney, the animated version!

That’s right. She is now a cartoon character fighting off evil male villains, or so it seems in the music video.

In my opinion, she made a risky move that works! Some may think it’s lame but Britney is always surprising her audience with something different and new! While for some artists, making themselves a cartoon character may not work, it works for Britney.

This video screams fierce!

Spears is slowly starting to recover and we all wish her the best! Check out “Break the Ice” by Britney Spears below.

Yup! Jordin Sparks, season 6 American Idol, and Chris Brown decided to work together! Although their duet, “No Air” was featured in her 2007 album, “Jordin Sparks“, it wasn’t until recently that their music video came to the surface.

Their duet in this music video is passionate and anyone should be able to tell that they both are great musicians for such a young age.  Not only do both their voices purely and melodically just flow through the entire song but this song is passionate, and that’s why I love it!

Jesse McCartney–YoungerImage Provided by google

This was Jesse McCartney just two years ago. In 2003, he’s won the hearts of young girls with his songs “Beautiful Soul” and “She’s No You”.

Now he’s back and he’s more mature than ever! His new album “Departure” will be released in May of this year. His single, “Leavin” sure is leaving up a stir with fans all over! His music video is no longer cutesy and childlike, it’s mature and a bit more provocative. There isn’t too much to say except that McCartney is all grown up! Check out what I’m talking about yourself–

“Big Bang” is a Korean hip hop and r&b group that composes of five members. The youngest Seungri, age 17, Dae Sung, age 18, Tae Yang, age 19, T.O.P, age 20, and the leader G-Dragon, age 19, are the most sought after by female fans of all ages.

Debuting in 2006 with their first single, “This Love” and second single “Big Bang is VIP” won fans’ hearts all over Korea. Due to such great success right off the bat, these boys have decided to make a debut album in Japan this year. The funny thing is, their Japanese album is sung in English. All of it! Despite their odd decision of making a Japanese album all in English, their album, “For the World” was debuted at #14 than #10 on the Oricon charts. Apparently, this was a successful surprise because there were no huge promotions that were done in Japan for this album or for this boy band. These young guys stated in an interview once that their dreams are to debut in America one day. They only hope that they can advance their musicality to do so in the near future.

Just for fun, I made a Big Bang CD for a few of my friends who weren’t Asian and had them listen to it just to see their reactions. Surprisingly they all enjoyed their music and said that it was a lot of fun. Their English was a little off but they said that the music itself was great to listen to, especially if you like hip hop and r&b.

Check out their single, “How Gee“, off of their “For The World” album. This song is a remix of the original version by Black Machine.

Can everyone be on broadway nowadays?

Nicole Richie‘s father may be Lionel Richie, but this is one star that people have a hard time believing that she can be singer.

All over the celebrity gossip sites, such as Perez Hilton and Pop Crunch, states that there are rumors of the new mom and girlfriend of Joel Madden, playing the role of Roxie Hart in Chicago!

Richie is apparently a trained musician as well as a dancer. She is seriously considering in moving to New York City with boyfriend Joel Madden and their daughter to make this really happen!

I really want to know how the outcome of this will be.

I first found about Sara Bareilles from a free itunes gift card that I received from Starbucks.

Thank God I did because she is so good! Sara is a gifted singer who is most known for her song titled, “Love Song”. Her album called “Little Voice”, was released this year and includes songs about her past relationships, her inner battles with trusting her instincts, and her insecurities. Right now she is on VH1’s You Oughta Know tour with James Blunt. So if you’re in the area you better check her out ASAP! Or check out one of her songs right here and get a feel for her music!

Jack Johnson has decided to say goodbye to his bright pop tunes from his previous soundtrack, Curious George. His new CD, “Sleep Through The Static”, includes a different type of emotion. It almost sounds a bit darker than before and he is much more mellow in this soundtrack than before.

If you want to stay inside a rainy or gloomy day, this soundtrack is the way to go. Check out his single, “If I Had Eyes”.

Girls Aloud are a British girl group created in the year 2002 by a talent show Popstars: The Rivals. The group consists of five girls, Cheryl Cole, Nadine Coyle, Sarah Harding, Nicola Roberts, and Kimberley Walsh. Despite the fact that not many groups that come out of a talent show become successful, i.e. Danity Kane and O-town, Girls Aloud are one of the most popular British pop groups of the decade!

Their new single and released music video “Can’t Speak French” is all the rave. Girls Aloud are not afraid to challenge pop music. They know how to make music fun. Critics love them and so do the fans. No wonder they are known as the best girl group that UK has ever seen! Even Perez Hilton agrees that they are the “HOTTEST girl group on the planet”!

Here’s their latest single:
