Rihanna Album Review

Hey all you styling and rocking listeners and internet surfers, this is your sassy host Symone here giving you the lastest on what's new on the music bloodstream. First let me say, I hope you guys had a great, relaxing, and strategic Thanksgiving Break! I add the strategic part to this greeting because there had to be strategies and game plans after the major rush on Black Friday weekend and Cyber Monday. Anyway time to give you a first for the MoodRose Radio Show, an album review by yours truly and my 1st album reiview is on Rihannia's latest album Unapologetic! How I got my hand on the CD is simple to answer, BEST BUY! The store had a special on the new album by selling it for $10! Sweet deal wasn't it!?!

To begin with my review is to stay that Rihanna is really starting to evolve into a A-rank songtress with her unique mix of songs, that contain soon to be memorable beats and rhythms. If you guys haven't heard yet, the song Diamonds off the album is more than likely to be a chart-topper especially with its soothing tones yet thumping beats to keep you moving. Other songs like "What Now" and "Stay" give off a more dark romantic vibe which seems to be a common theme with some of Rih-Rih's love songs. After listening to the CD for a record of 50 times after purchasing it, I have to say its has potential to become a chart-topper. Its also a great gift for anyone who is a fan of Rih-Rih! So that's my first album review, but if you guys think there more to the album than post your comments about it on the MoodRose Radio Facebook page.

Since I'm not a fan of goodbyes, I leave you guys with a music video off of Rih-Rih's new album and a personal favorite. So without further ado, here's Rihanna with a "Diamonds" music video!!

Fashion + Celebrity News (Thanksgiving Special!!)

Hey all you radio listeners and online shakers, this is your celebrity news hunter and radio host Symone giving you the latest in fashion reality tv show news of this Thanksgiving season. Remember the the firings of Mr. and Mrs. J and Nigel Barker, from the guilty pleasure of ANTM (America's Next Top Model)? Well word on the reality TV street is that Nigel Barker is going to be the host of a  new fashion reality tv show, The Face.

The Face, a new modeling competition series by Oxygen Media, is having well-known names from the industry on the show such as Coco Rocha, Karolina Kurkova, and Tyra Banks' modeling rival, Naomi Campbell. So far the show has been seen on the social media web as The Noami Campbell show despite having former ANTM judge Nigel Barker as the show's host. Yet the real question with this news, is whether or not that this is Nigel's way for pay back at Banks by working with her former rival, Campbell? In my opinion, I don't think it is because Nigel did stated that the of ratings of ANTM were going down, so he wasn't surprised that he was going to be cut from the show.

But while you curious cats speculate this recent news, the show is already starting its open casting call phase, which is the perfect time to shine. So if you think you have what it takes to walk down the runway and become one of the new and big model names of the industry, check it out and sign up. I think this show will be nothing short of exciting if the executive producer of the show is Andrew Frank, the genius behind The Amazing Race and Survivor. But don't get to excited, the show won't air til 2013.

Theme Song of This Week and Thanksgiving Closeout/Greeting

The theme song of this week is Signs by Bloc Party. I first heard this mysterious and spine-chilling song through my new favorite show, Gossip Girl. The soothing  yet chilling tones of the song can make you feel like time has slow down for you, giving you the chance to fix your mistakes or realize the ones you just made.  Quick Bio time, Bloc Party is a British indie rock band, composed of Kele Okereke (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Russell Lissack (lead guitar), Gordon Moakes (bass guitar, synths, backing vocals, glockenspiel), and Matt Tong (drums, backing vocals). Inspired by bands the Cure, Radiohead, Mogwai, and Souixsie and the Banshees, this groups's soft yet lyrical songs can make you feel and easy throughout a day of anxiety and stress. I would recommend looking at there other songs and seeing if there are other bands similar to them out if you really like their music it doesn't hurt to see if you find more of it from different places around the world. As an avid music hunter, I try to expand my horizons of music and with different and unique methods to find music that might grab your interests its always fun to find it, listen, and see if it would be you next favorite musician, artist, or band. For the Thankgiving holiday, I'm closing out to say happy music hunting through the reasonable deals of Amazon and remember once Black Friday rolls around, its time to whip out the best and funkiest Christmas music you can find to really get into the holiday spirit. So happy Black Friday prep and shopping and most importantly have a happy Thanksgiving. As an Thankgiving gift below is the chance to listen to the song Signs by Bloc Party from their album Intimacy. See you soon!
