I hope you are having a fantastic week. I am loving this beautiful warm weather! It makes me want to work at night so I can spend my days outside in the sun. Then again I sunburn easily so I should probably just be happy with the fantastic view from my desk and lunch time outside under the trees.
I want to quickly mention that Backstreet Boy Howie D and his lovely wife Leigh welcomed a precious baby boy into the world on May 6th at 2:30pm weighing in at 4.5 pounds. According to BSB and Howie's twitter the little guy and mommy are doing good. They named their little man James Hoke Dorough. Awww!! I started a thread on the Pop Music forum about the new Backstreet baby if anyone is interested: http://forums.bellaonline.com/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=519186#Post519186
Things are busy, busy around here. Last week I launched a new weekly section on the Pop Music site called Pop Treats, and next week will see the launch of another new weekly section that will bring you the latest in pop music news tidbits. Also, I will be launching a YouTube channel towards the end of summer (hopefully!) which will feature interviews, behind the scenes fun stuff, and general random awesomeness. So stay tuned!!
I'm excited about watching the final 3 on American Idol tonight. If you are an American Idol fan too then please drop by the Pop Music forums and join us in the American Idol discussion thread: http://forums.bellaonline.com/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=518918#Post518918. Also, don't forget that Katy Perry will be performing on Idol tomorrow night Wednesday, May 13th.
The Latest Pop Treats
As I mentioned I've launched a new weekly section on the Pop Music site dedicated to the hottest must-have songs for your iPod. Check out this week's Pop Treats:
Pop Treats from Perry, James, Franti & Spearhead
These songs will make you feel like you’re “Waking Up in Vegas” feeling “Wanted” wishing that Elvis would just say “Say Hey (I Love You)”.
Also check out last week's Pop Treats which were posted after I sent last week's newsletter:
Pop Treats from DeBarge, Tisdale, and Kingston
These songs will reassure you that “It’s Alright, It’s OK” and will help you get a “Fire Burning” on the dance floor. These treats are so tasty, you won’t want to say “Goodbye”.
Kylie Minogue – North American Tour
One of pop music’s most beloved icons has announced plans to get North America dancing with a six city tour.
Stay in Touch!
I hope to hear from you sometime soon either in the Pop Music forum or in a response to this e-mail message. Tell me what you are thinking, what music you are loving, or just say "hi".
