Helloo!! Where WERE these guys all this time?? I remember shaking my then-obese funky backside to ‘5,6,7,8‘ ( in ways NO backside could have EVURR been shaken AT ALL) back in the day in high school and falling in love with this group! A decade after their last release, the reunited group lands in straight at # 1 on this weeks UK Top 40 with their new compilation ‘The Ultimate Collection‘, making it the group’s 3rd UK # 1 album! (brings back high school memories of obesity and amazingly low self-esteem..yay!)
Respect to the group y’all, they’ve had 14 consecutive UK Top 10 hits! And that wasn’t easy back in the late 90’s (wonder how Rihanna might have performed then). They’ve regrouped and are ready to tour again in 2012, and they appear on their own documentary ‘Steps : The Reunion‘, hence the boost to # 1 (the power of reality TV yet again). The love’s surely flowing for this group in the UK! In fact they beat Evanescence to the top spot, with the latter coming in at # 4 with their new self titled album.
My fave Steps number was and still is ‘Say You’ll Be Mine‘ (it’s cheesier than an extra-cheesy pepperoni pizza with some additional extra cheese and some more extra cheese. And a little more extra cheese).
And then we have Miss Rihanna, who has taken it upon herself to release a new album for every time there’s a season change. Girl means BIZNESS y’all! Hence the Bajan banger is at # 1 on the UK Top 40 Singles Chart for a second week with the latest of her rapid-fire releases ‘We Found Love‘ featuring Calvin Harris . The hawt hawt video for this one will be releasing soon. Apparently Rihanna was shooed away by a poor unsuspecting farmer while she was shooting for this one gallivanting in a barely there outfit bang in the middle of a field in Ireland. And then she was spotted shooting the remaining video in Belfast wearing something that Lady Gaga would’ve patented in the first place (zomg moment comin’ up below y’all).
Dearest Rihanna. I love you and stuff, but MY EYES!!!
A stone washed denim bustier with cheetah print platforms? This video’s gonna be one of the
ugliest most interesting video’s we’ll get to see in recent times! And the new album, poignantly called ‘Talk That Talk‘, should just be renamed ‘Good Girl Gone Clown‘.
