[SNAPS] Kim Kardashian is DEAD! by wearesme

Fans of Kim Kardashian and her derrière (yes they should be classified as separate entities!) can breathe a sigh of relief; Kim is very much alive and kicking, and looking stunning as ever. However, on Wednesday 1st December her Twitter and Facebook accounts will be 6 foot under.

Its all part of a new campaign called ‘Digital Life Sacrifice’ where a host of celebrities have agreed to sign off from all social media platforms on behalf of Alicia Keys’ charity Keep a Child Alive. The digital protest aims to raise money on World AIDS Day, with participants signing back on to their respective social networking profiles once the charity has raised $1 million.

Kim joins a whole host of celebs who have signed up for the cause including Alicia Keys, Lady Gaga, Usher, Jennifer Hudson, Justin Timberlake, Janelle Monáe, Swizz Beatz and Jay Sean.

What a brilliant idea! And lets hope they raise above and beyong the $1 million aim.


[VIDEO] American Music Awards 2010 Performances by wearesme

It may have been all about Justin Beiber who picked up 4 awards on the night, but Rihanna stole the show from a performance point of view, opening with a medley of tracks from her album ‘LOUD’.

And in a blast from the past, Backstreet Boys and New Kids On The Block took to the stage together to perform a medley of their past hits. The 2 bands are soon to embark on a summer tour together; every boy band lovers dream.

NEW MUSIC: Amy Winehouse – It’s My Party (Prod.Mark Ronson) [Quincy Jones] by wearesme

Amy Winehouse is back! Its been an age since we heard new material from her (too busy getting drunk and releasing clothing lines with Fred Perry) but here she is covering the classic track ‘It’s My Party’.

The track is taken from a tribute album to Quincy Jones (don’t worry he’s still alive!) which features reinterpretations of songs associated with him by some of the biggest music names around today. The likes of Usher, Ludacris, B.O.B, Akon and Mark Ronson all feature on ‘Q Soul Bossa Nostra’.

On the album Jones said; “Each artist picked a song that resonated with them for different reasons. I am honored that everyone wanted to be a part of this celebration of these songs. They all made them their own and knocked them out of the park.”

Q Soul Bossa Nostra will be released on November 9, 2010.


[SNAPS] Willow & Jayden Smith join the Buy Life campaign for Keep A Child Alive by wearesme

Willow and Jayden Smith are the newest recruits for Alicia Keys’ Keep A Child Alive campaign. Willow and Jayden are pictured above (looking like true models may we add) wearing the ‘Buy Life’ T-Shirt. Is there anything these kids can’t do!?

Keep A Child Alive was founded by Alicia Keys and her husband Swizz Beatz. The organisation provides care and support, including medicine, food and shelter, for families affected by HIV and AIDS in Africa and India.

Each of the ‘Buy Life’ t-shirt’s has a unique barcode on the front which can be scanned using several smart-phone applications.
The barcode then allows you to make donations to the charity or as they put it, ‘make the purchase of a LIFE-time.’ Pretty cool concept! And more importantly, for a good cause.

The campaign has been supported by Alicia Keys, Kim Kardashian, Katie Holmes, Usher, Ryan Seacrest, Swizz Beatz, Jay Sean and now Willow and Jayden Smith; all shot wearing the Buy Life T-Shirts, along with Swizz Beatz and the then pregnant Alicia Keys. Check out the snaps in the gallery below.

Way Back When…B2K by wearesme

That’s right, its back!

Having gone AWOL for a few months our much loved feature Way Back When has returned, and it’s bigger and better than ever. Not only will we bring you some of our favourite tunes from the years gone by, but we will also be doing whole features on artists and even years.

So to kick start things, we would like to re-introduce you to B2K. Founded and managed by music producer Chris Stokes in 2001 with Lil’ Fizz, J-Boog, Raz-B, and Omarion as members. B2K was an R&B/Hip-Hop boy band of the early 2000’s, until their break-up in 2004.

During their time together, they released two studio albums. The first, self-titled B2K, debuted at number 2 in the U.S. and the follow up, Pandemonium, only reached number 10. They also collaborated and associated themselves with some pretty heavyweight names like Bow Wow, Ray J, P Diddy and Usher. However, it is singles such as Bump Bump Bump, Girlfriend and Badaboom, which featured on the You Got Served soundtrack, that they will always be remembered for.

So, sit back, appreciate and enjoy the musical talents of B2K…

Banger(s) Of The Week – Usher and Wale by wearesme

Usher – DJ Got Us Fallin’ In Love (feat. Pitbull)

Both Usher and Wale have released new tunes. The former’s is called ‘DJ’s Got Us Fallin’ In Love’ and features Pitbull, whilst the Latter’s is called ‘Workin’.

Usher’s last track ‘OMG’ was and still is an absolute club banger that is guaranteed to fill the dance floor when the DJ drops it. So whilst he is still revelling in the glory of that tune, he has decided to release a new EP entitled ‘Versus’ next month. The first single from this features Pitbull, which seems like a good move considering his recent success in the mainstream party scene. It’s a pretty decent tune, to be fair, and we can certainly see it having some pretty good commercial success.

Wale – Workin

Wale, on the other hand, is an upcoming star who has recently announced his follow up project to last years ‘The Mixtape About Nothing’ which is set to be titled ‘More About Nothing’. This track, however, will not feature on the album and is just a taster so wet our whistles in anticipation. Ladies and Gentlemen… ‘Workin’ produced by UK producer Yogi…

Wale – Workin’

Nuff Love x
