The Great Beginning... And the Horrifying Now.

Miley Cyrus has been quite a popular topic this week.

Her performance at the VMAS (MTV Music Video Awards) was with Robin Thickie  was apparently really bad. Everyone is talking about it, from secular critics to my local Christian radio station broadcaster. Yes, it was that bad. Parents are upset because that used to be the girl that their younger children looked up to on Hannah Montana. Other comments talk about having nightmares with her... front and center. Just like it has been since Sunday.

First of all, I would like to confess, that though I didn't watch this performance, but did see a few pictures, I am disgusted. But not surprised for three reasons.

1. This is VMAs we're talking about here. MTV! A lot of really terrible things happen at this award show.

2. She did a duet with Robin Thicke. His #1 video was blocked by Youtube! I don't even want to say why!

3. This is Miley Cyrus. Sure, she was good on Hannah Montana. She was great until those pictures got out about three years ago. But let's face the sad truth: That girl died. Because if you look at her back in 2009 and get a glimpse of her now. Oooo... big difference. It's sad. She's sad. She's so vain. I remember reading her autobiography a few years ago. I saw the Psalms written in it. She talked about God and how He did great things in her life. I don't know what happened, but her story is a warning. When you get older, you change. There's no way around it. Only you can decide how you want to change. You have to surround yourself with godly influences. I've heard stories like this, not about celebrities. It can happen to anyone, even you.

Okay, enough about that. Actually, the reason I'm taling about this is because I wanted to review her new song. Her album, Bangerz, (does it surprise me that I can't even pronounce that word?), is available for preorder. Not that I would want to preorder it! Six of those songs are explicit and you can tell by the album cover that this isn't very good.

'Wrecking Ball' is the lastest song by her. Though it is nothing like 'We Can't Stop', which talks about partying and taking drugs. It's more serious. It takes about a relationship, a relationship in which Miley is determine is make work, even if she has to force him into it.

Stating out, the song goes into a soft, haunting tune with Miley singing in a narrative. We see right away how violent this relationship is. "We clawed/We chained our hearts in vain." Also sexual. "We kissed/I fell under your spell/A love no one can deny."

She confesses that though this is a broken relationship, it was much more than it seemed. "Don't you ever say/I just walked away/I will always love you." Now she sings against what she seems to be already doing. "I can't live a lie/Running for my life/I will always love you."

Here comes her meatopher as the song builds up to a very powerful chorus. "I came in like a wrecking ball/I never hit so hard in love," she confesses. "All I wanted to do was break your walls, but you broke me."

Also, she sowerfully sings of how the relationship ended. "I put you high up in the sky/And now you're not coming down/It slowly turned/You let me burn/And now, we're ashes in the ground."

Miley did love this boy, so much she wanted to 'break his walls.' Some people, when their hearts have been broken before, have 'walls' when they get into other relationship. They're reluctant, shy, and sometimes even scared. 'Walls' is a popular metaphor in music.

But this song doesn't just talk about just another, regretful, sowerfull relationship. I'm afraid it is much more. The bridge hints to what could have been emotional, and even sexual abuse. Who's doing the abusing? Apparently right now, it's Miley. She even admits to being wrong about the way she 'came in like a wrecking ball'. "I never meant to start a war/I just wanted you to let me in/Instead of using force, I guess I should have let you in."

It is unclear who's fault this was. She went too far, and the boy gave it right back to her. The mentions towards a destructive, and perhaps abusive relationship come in multiple lines and ultimately, the whole idea of the song. "You wrecked me," she tells her ex-lover. 

This song has a way better message than 'We Can't Stop.' (And it doesn't want to make me puke every time I hear it) It was well written, and it was honest. But it seems as if these lovers were just abusing each other. The sad fact is that Miley meant well, and it started with something as simple as a kiss.

It's a warning. Things might start innocently enough, but they have a destructing end. Just like Miley's career. It started so innocently with Hannah Montana. Now it's gone viral... for the wrong reasons.

One thing's for sure. Miley has demolished all the trust, and respect she had from her old fans and their parents. She has pulled the final straw, and now Hannah Montana, her autobiography, and her Christian faith, has turned into memories, memories that are slowly fading away.

It's funny. Whenever I hear a song like 'We Can't Stop', my first reaction is gag! But once I realize that person is someone I used to look up to, my feeling of disgust turns to sadness. It really is sad because things might have a great beginning, but with Hollywood, you never know how it's going to end.

Katy Again/Something I've Been Thinking About

I'm going to post about some things I've been thinking about due to very recent happenings in my life.

To start off, some friends of mine are moving and others have already moved. I don't know... Some of it caught be by surprise and I was like, "Okay what's going on here?"

A few of these friends that have moved or are moving because they feel like God is telling them to. I want to say first that they are incredibly faithful beyond belief and it is a honor to know them!

Though the surprises dazed me for a while, I started thinking about me. Would I do that for God? Would I leave everything I know behind and be not even sure where I'm going?

This question ties with another question, a question that we might think we know the answer to, but really, we might not. This question you might try to avoid, but it always comes back to you. It expects so much out of you. It takes you places you don't want to go, but you have to answer it.

Who am I living for?

Until recently, I've never been into Katy Perry. You guys might have read my review to her new song 'Roar.' To the you the truth, I liked it, a lot. It speaks to me so much. The first few lines are who I am. Because if you know me in person, you know I am SUPER shy. Sometimes I accept myself for who I am. Other times, I wish I was more sociable and confident.  So in a way, this song represents (in a less extreme way), who I want to be.

Has does Katy Perry have to do with this post?

Well, actually, you might not know this, but Perry has a song called, 'Who Am I Living For?'. Though I'd heard of it and I knew it was spiritual, I really hadn't listen to it until recently.

The song, though is very techno and sounds a little weird, the lyrics are very convicting and really sound like their influenced by something spiritual. Like the line, "So I pray for favor like Ester/I need your strength to handle this pressure."

But it is so powerful and relating because everyone, at a point in their life, is faced with question. It is definitely of the most important questions in your life. It influences how you think, how you feel, and your goals in life. But... the answer is... that there is only one thing worth living for.

"I am ready for the road less traveled," Katy sings. "I can hear the heavens/But I still see the flames/Calling out my name."

Have you ever been through a moment like this? Where you know what's right, but you can still hear the your flesh's voice calling you out, saying, "Com back to me. It isn't worth it. None of it is."

I have. I remember almost going towards the flames, even attempting my sin again, but before I could get into it, God found me.. I had turned my back on Him, but He was still there, even though I wasn't worth going back for. But He still did. Because His love is unstoppable and no matter the world tells you, no matter what Satan tells you, no matter what happens in your life,  I know, with all my heart, that He is the only one who is worth living for.

Even if it means going away and leaving everything behind. That's why I admire those people in my life, instead of thinking they're crazy. Because I truly believe, that though I might wander from God, He never wanders from me. So He deserves for us to follow Him.

Though Miss Perry has made it unclear who she is living for, I know who I am living for. I hope you do too. Some of you might have heard this before, but I hope to have remind you (and me) about it.

In Christ,

From Meow to ROAR!

It's been about a year since we've heard from Katy Perry when she released Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection. In her hit album, Teenage Dream, she sings
about running away with a guy, girls with binkies, fireworks, and a supernatural relationship. Though the album was explicit, sexy, and used one too many cuss words, she ended it on a good note with her moving on song, 'Wide Awake.' After her divorce, she also released a 3D movie.

Now if you are Katy Perry fan, or if you just know a little about her style, you know that she is a candy girl. (See pic)Though her hair is naturally colored black, her hair is often colored, blue, pink and purple.

But that little stunt is over.

With the release of her lead single, 'Roar', she has released four teasers. One showed her burning her blue wig. Another took place at a cemetery where they supposedly buried the old her. The third showed a cat, meowing. He eats something black, then roars. At first, I thought these teasers were a good sign. Maybe she would go back to the way thing were before with her debut Christian album. Then I came to realize that though Katy is weird, at least she is weird in a candy, innocent sort of way. Since she's putting all that behind her, what would become of her now?

She is a cat girl. Her super fans are called 'Katy Cats'. But now, she isn't a cat anymore.
If you haven't guessed it by now, she's a tiger.

'Roar's shows a new side to Katy. It is full of girl power and triumph. Letting people push her around is not a option anymore. Staying in the depths of despair is not longer doable. "I wrote it because I was sick of keeping these feelings inside and not speaking up for myself, which caused a lot of resentment," Miss Perry says, on writing this song.

Starting off, she speaks of the old her. "I used to bite my tongue and hold my breath/Scared to rock the boat and make a mess/I stood for nothing/And feel for everything."

As the song gets faster, she tells the pusher that she will no longer put up with it. "You held me down/But I got up/Get ready cause I've had enough."

What is she going to do now?

Roar! "I got the eye of the tiger/Dancing through the fire/Cause I am champion/And you're gonna hear me Roar/Louder than the than the lion." Though she is softer now, she still has a fierce side. "Now I'm floating like a butterfly/Stinging like a bee/I earned my stripes/I went from zero/To my own hero." Katy has no intention of being merciful either. "You hear my voice/You hear my sound/Like thunder, I'm gonna shake your ground."

When I first heard this song, I was delightfully surprised. Maybe this song doesn't provide the best message, it is really good for Katy! Though I've never been a huge fan because of her inappropriate music, I did enjoy some songs. This is way better than the lead single for Teenage Dream, 'California Gurls',

Through the years, Katy has been through a lot. She started out a Christian artist, but since she has gone astray. I had hopped that her divorce had perhaps woken her up.  When I heard 'Wide Awake', I was hopeful. Then I heard that she said, "My music's about to get f---ing dark."

This song isn't dark, but I pray that the rest of her album, Prism, isn't. 'Roar' talks about girls. Think about this. When a guy ticks another guy off, the another guy beats him up and it's over with. On the other hand, girls can be mad for months. They don't punch. They talk and their words leave a mark. We're emotional people and we when we 'roar', we can hurt people more than guys do. Physical scars don't hurt, but emotional ones definitely do.

Though 'Roar' is pretty clean and its triumphant message is encouraging, when I put it that way, it isn't the best message.

Crying on Your Birthday

Dear Fellow Bloggers and Blog Readers, (you're all my friends)

I've been feeling a little down lately. For personal reasons, (and to protect a fellow blogger), I don't want to say why. It's been a hard few days. My deceased grandfather's birthday was a few days ago. Yesterday, I played, 'If I Die Young', and it reminded my dad of him. Not to mention, I'm starting school in a week. I'm excited to starting writing class again, but like always, I don't want summer to end.

But I'm not going to talk about that. I'm going to talk about one of my haunting memories.

The reason I'm posting about this is because I just read the lyrics to a song I knew a little bit about. Some of you might have heard of the popular show, Victorious. Though it has ended, I listened to a song by them. It's called 'Here's 2 Us'.  When I first heard it, I didn't really get the point of it. But when I watched a lyric video, I understood. It's about forgetting your mistakes and making the best of what you have... in this case... you're broke.

I'm guilty of being a con. I pretend to be someone I'm not. I pretend to be someone for my best guy friend. Sometimes, I even pretend me to someone else for my best friend. The only person I don't have to pretend to be someone else is my sister, Ellie.

But really, Jesus knows who I am. He knows the people I'm trying to be too. I can't be a con for Jesus, but He knows everything about me.

So, the reason I bring the song up is because I heard one particular line, I thought, 'Wow! That totally relates to me'. To be honest, the song is a little weird, but I love the chorus.

Here’s to never winning first place
Here’s to crying on your birthday
Here’s to every single heartbreak
Here’s to us
Here’s to us

Once I heard that 'crying on your birthday' line, it shocked me, but it made me realize something.

Alright, I will admit, I have cried on my birthday. Not because I was happy, but because I was sad. It wasn't my happiest moment. But I never told anyone. Mostly because it was such a dark moment in my life I mean, crying on your birthday. That's pretty sad. I regret it, and I don't like to talk about it. Why would anyone want to write a song about crying on their birthday?

But I've come to a point where I've realized that every moment in your life leads up to something. It builds who you are. I understand what this song is trying to say. We've all had our dark moments.. We tear ourselves apart for because of it.

But we have a choice. We can either beat ourselves up whenever we think of those moments or we could we could move on. Both options shape who we are. This song also says, "Here's to the mistakes/Somehow they put you in the right place."

Because all of the trials that we go through, all the mistakes we make, shape who we are. We can write a 'woe is me' song or we can right song like this. We could either let it have a positive affect on us or a negative effect. We can rejoice in our failures and our dark moments.

How? Why?

Well, that's the part that this song missed.

Because God has forgiven us and made us new. Look at you before you were a Christian. Look at you before you rededicated your life to God.

Now look at you now.

You've come a long way, haven't you? Well, I'm here to tell you that God carried you all the way.

Think about it. Jesus didn't say 'woe is me' in the garden. I'm sure he was sad, but He didn't feel sorry for himelf. Instead, He obeyed God.

I'm not going to forget I cried on my last birthday. I doubt I ever will. But I'm not going to wince at the memory anymore. Because we can either sing 'woe is me', or we can make the best out of what we're working with.

In Christ,

Ariana Grande  from Victorious and Sam and Cat is coming out with an album September 3rd! I love Ariana Grande's voice and her acting so I'm looking forward to listening to (and reviewing) this ablum. Her music style is different. It's more classy and sounds a lot like Mariah Carey.

Here's my favorite songs from the album so far. (singles)

Stars Dance: It Make my Head Hurt (Album Review)

(I decided to post this review on both blogs so you guys can get to it quicker)

So Selena Gomez has came out with a new album. But I'm not going to get into her story. Chances are, you know who she is since she has gotten more popular'. Also, since she got the starring part in that R rated movie.

But like I said, I'm not going to get into that.

I would say, however, that this record is a solo deal, unlike her three other albums which features her band The Scene. Now she's solo. This album is definitely a lot more 'Dance' than the rest of them. You can tell by the title, 'Stars Dance' of course.

Selena Gomez was actually one of the first un-Christian artist's I listen to. After I listened to 'Fly to Your Heart', the song she sang for the original Tinkerbell movie, I loved her. (Okay, that was awhile ago) That was back in 2009.

Some of these songs do sound like their under the influence of Selena Gomez's relationship with Bieber. But to tell you the truth: I wish it wasn't. Because this album is full of... well... 'it', even if it never says it directly.

So here it goes.

Wholesome Content

It was a tad difficult to scrape up some good stuff for this album. But one song makes the cut completely. 'Love Will Remember' is a good song which though talks about a broken relationship, looks to the positive side of things. "We used to be inseparable... I don't how it screwed up... love will remember... forever it will be ours/Even if we try to forget."

'Forget Forever' calls a lover up for hurting her. "Our love was made to rule the world/You came and broke the perfect girl." Though there is a hint toward trying again, in the end, Gomez tells her ex, "Forget forever/Forget you ever knew my name."

On a different note, 'Come and Get It' is a song about committing to one person. "I'm gonna love you for life/I ain't leaving your side," she confesses persistently. Though 'Like a Champion' is a little on the prideful side, you can say its a victorious song. 'Stars Dance' is a song about Gomez making her guy happy.

I'll face it: None of these songs, expect for maybe 'Love Will Remember or 'Forget Forever' are very good at all. In fact, they prove to be annoying and frequent mentions to intense sexual content doesn't help things at all. But other than 'Forget Forever', these songs are happy. That's not something I see everyday. Maybe she's happy for the wrong reasons, but its progress.

And that sums up the good things about these songs.

Unacceptable Content

These songs might be happy but the sexual part of it, in every song, makes me raise an eyebrow. To start of, 'Come and Get It' might have its good points, the overall meaning of the song is 'When you're ready, come and get my body." Similar meanings pop in nearly every song.

'Birthday' though is one of the more tamer songs, talks about everyday partying and compares sexual relationship to cakes and other party things. What's her excuse for doing all this? Every day is her birthday. She's lying about it. "Tell them it's my birthday/They don't know so it's okay... Feeling so fine and free/Crashing into you/Crashing into me/(So yummy)

In 'Slow Down', Selena asks a guy to 'slow down the song' to make the night go slower. The lines definitely talk about s-x. "You know I'm good with mouth-to-mouth resuscitation/Breathe me in/Breathe me out/So amazing." 'Save the Day' encourages what definitely is suggestive towards sex.  'Like a Champion' is a very prideful song. Plus, she also sings, "You gotta show them you're someone else/You've never felt so sexy sexy sexy." (with emphasis on the sex part in that word)

Though 'Write Your Name' is clean, Selena seems like she wants to over committed to her lover. 'Write your name... across my heart/Over every part." 'Undercover' definitely is the worst song in this album. "I look at you/And everything I want to do/Disappears," she begins. "I got a craving for you, baby... you're a sexy machine... I wanna find a place alone in the dark... Find me in the shadows/And put the shades down until tomorrow." Because of the title, Selena could likely be telling this guy to cheat on his girlfriend.

 In 'Nobody Does It Like You', Gomez is a bad girl wannabe falling for a bad boy.


First off, I want to say that Selena wasn't very clean in the first place. From her first album with her band, she has always loved partying. So I guess you can say she's always had this in her. Her last album was suggesting toward stuff like this.

There's a lot of sex going on in this album. The lines are not just suggestive. She's not just playing around with the idea anymore. What concerns me is that ironically, Gomez is still on Disney Channel. She says that she has respect for her young fans.

I would believe that. After all, these songs are, again, happy. But the mentions toward sex and her role in her R rated movie shows evidence to something else.

Okay, I'll be honest with this. I had a hard time reviewing this album. For awhile. I even decided to not review it because the songs were so annoying and they literally made my head hurt. They're catchy, believe me. But if Gomez had something else to say other than singing the chorus six times each song, I might be a little more soft. But seriously, these songs lack creativity and it's full of auto tune.

I would say, "Try again," but I really don't want to. Because these albums just keep getting worse and worse.
