Jessie J - Who's Laughing Now [Music Video Premiere] + performance on Alan Carr
Just because you've got a broken leg and just so happens to be Britain's "pop star of the year" doesn't mean you don't go to work. Jessie J may have fallen off a stage during a summer gig, landing her foot in a cast and all, but she most recently filmed the video for fourth UK single Who's Laughing Now and did a performance on Alan Carr.
The music video shows a young Jessica Cornish in school getting bullied and taunted by the pretty girls in pink. But by the time the first chorus starts, lil' Jessie's had enough and goes all bad ass on us, wrecking some of the school property in the most innocent 8 year old manner you can think of. Well, you know, when you were 8 and not actual 8 year old monsters these days. Jessie herself appears as a cleaner, lunch lady and a teacher, watching lil' Jessie turn herself into a gangsta brat, before joining young Jessie for the final chorus.
Hoping to land herself another hit, Jessie hit up Alan Carr: Chatty Man recently to talk about her injury, the message behind Who's Laughing Now etc., before taking the stage to perform Who's Laughing Now. By Jessie standards, it was another flawless vocal performance, unlike her performance of the same song at Radio 1's Big Weekend, where I suppose she could barely hear herself, and ended up catching herself in the wrong key almost the entire way through, making the performance almost unbearable. Check all of them out below.
We review the latest in 21st century. Mostly we do pop, but it doesn't really matter, along with new music premieres, video premieres, album premieres. If the links don't work, please notify me in the cbox right below and I will post a new link in the cbox. Thanks.
Artist Of The Month. (November 2011)
The Power Rangers of British pop, The Saturdays, are returning this year with a more mature sound and image, with the girlband taking a stab at the pop/dance wave with their fourth album On Your Radar's first single Notorious being a total flip in direction in their sound, and was noticeably more clubby compared to their previous singles and albums. They then took things a level further with the complete rave-tastic All Fired Up, which is without a doubt their best single release, not surprising since the track was produced by production powerhouse Xenomania, the machine behind pretty much all of Girls Aloud's discography. The pop five-piece are charging forward with the Christmassy ballad My Heart Takes Over before their album On Your Radar drops November 21st!
