JT + Vegas = awesomeness!

i had an amazing time in Vegas this past weekend. it was my first time going so i didn't fully know what to expect. then to too Justin Timberlake on top of that and what do u get? a whole lot more fun thats what!! I went to Vegas mainly to attend the JT and friends benefit concert. AMAZiNG is the only word that comes to mind. All the artist that were signed up to perform [Jay Sean, Taylor Swift, Alicia Keys, Ciara, Snoop Dogg and Timbland.. and of course JT] ALL did really good. this concert definitely helped me become a fan of Jay Sean. I've always like his current song "Down" but after seeing him perform.. and hearing that man talk.. with his English accent.. i will for sure be buying his album in november! lol. Below is one of the videos i was able to make... JT singing "Use Somebody" by Kings of Leon mixed with his hit "Cry Me A River"

CD REVIEW: Backstreet- they still got it?!

As a teenager I was all into the boy band phase.. had the posters, magazines, and CDs and videos... but sometime after I moved to Cali and turned 16, I kinda stopped following those groups as much. Backsteet Boys was one of my fave groups back then, but as I got older i simply lost track of whatever they were doing... They put out 3 other CDs since i've lived in CA but i never bought any of them =/.. until this week. They released their 7th (?) album and I figured i'd give it a listen. I'm very proud to say.. they still got it! These new songs aren't all poppy.. many of them have an R&B feel to it. Heck they even did a song with T-Pain! Their ballad songs aren't as lovey-dovey as the old stuff [ex. As Long As You Love Me], which is still good! So props to the boys for still doing what they love and doing a good job at it, even with 1 less member!! I'll definitely have to check out their tour when it comes my way..

* It almost seems like the past few weeks and the week ahead is like 'flashback' month or something.... first the Britney concert, now Backstreet Cd then JTimberlake next weekend... haha i guess ii'm revisiting my childhood. LOL

* First i want to say i'm sad Brian from Backstreet Boys has Swine Flu.. wtf!?! Hope he gets better.. he was always my favorite!

Justin Timberlake <3

So in less than 2 weeks I'll be off to Vegas- for the FIRST time! Yea I'm totally late with that one... =/ But what's even better than going to Vegas?! Going to a J.Timberlake concert IN VEGAS! Yep I forked up a lot of $$ and I'm going allll the way to Sin City to see my FAV performer for the.. 4th time? ...[once w/ Nsync... 1 on the Justified/Stripped tour... twice on the FutureSex/LoveSounds tour...]. So 5th time! So yea, I'm kind of a huge JT fan if you couldn't tell! Many of my friends looked at my like I was a fool for buying these expensive tickets, BUT its for charity.. its going towards JT's Shriner's Childrens Hospital.. so I'm helping JT help sick kids... and since I'm in the child care field how could I not wanna help out kids?!?

And just for the purpose of adding a random pic.. I found this clip on YouTube from when JT hosted the Espy Awards last year... it was the longest sports-related event i've ever watched! lol
