We're Not Dead!

That's right. After a brief hiatus brought upon by chronically busy schedules, we're back!




Here at BLNN, we like forecasting any upcoming buzz in the fabulous world of pop music. Today, we bring you a strong contender for the position of pop rock queen. Meet Kim Kline.

Combining the savvy of an industry veteran, the voice of an acclaimed diva, a dynamic personality and looks to die for... meet Singer/Songwriter, Kim Kline. Originally training with Ron Anderson, best known for his work with the Rolling Stones, No Doubt and Janet Jackson, Kim began developing the powerful voice she is known for today. Always looking to hone her talents, Kim now works with renowned vocal technique and performance coach Steven Memel who has trained such artists as Adam Levine and members of Maroon 5, Taryn Manning of Boomkat, Brittany Murphy and Big City Rock.

Fine tuning her music and voice, Kim began to accumulate an abundance of songs she wrote over the summer of 2004. These songs sparked the interest of acclaimed music entertainment law firm “Davis, Shapiro, Lewit, Montone and Hayes” (Linkin Park, Usher, and The Bravery.) The same day she met with Steve Shapiro, she was signed immediately.

Give her a try! She's going to be something soon, and she's definetely alot better sounding (and looking) than that rat voiced bitch Ashlee Simpson.

Maybe There's a Devil...



I think y'all are turning Japanese! I know I have...and you will too, thanks to this week's Pop Gem of the Week! This week, we present Devil Inside by Utada Hikaru, one of Japan's biggest pop stars! Don't worry, this song isn't sung in Japanese, it's in English so no need to worry about the language barrier. This particular version is the Richard Vission Radio Mix. A fantastic electro dance mix! Just between you and me, the album version of this song is rather dull. Anyway, enjoy and Ta!

Ask BL/NN: Issue 1

Us here at BL/NN have been receiving emails as of late with some questions. We'll be taking the liberty of answering them here for you in a few installments.

Q: Why so much Girls aloud news?
A: Aloud Sound is a huge fan, as am I. If it comes, why not post it?

Q (Or more, statement): Dear BL/NN. I am thoroughly offended by your post about Coldplay. They are a powerful and talented rock group, and deserve to be spoken of higher than what you reduced them to. This blog is slanderous and rude.
A: You pointed out something very important. They are a rock group. We don't kiss thier ass here. There's a nifty little briefing at the top of the page. Read it, a second of third time if you have to. Sink in yet? Good.

And FYI, i'm the rude and slanderous one. Aloud Sound is a terribly nice, cheery fellow.

Q: How do you find out all this news and songs so fast?
A: We have no lives.

Q: Thanks for bashing James Blunt! He is a right slag. Are there any other artists you hate?
A: I can only speak for myself, but I can't stand Mariah Carey. Putting aside the fact she wears clothes way too small for her, as an artist she doesn't take risks. She finds a song, and sticks with the exact same formula. She has an amazing voice, but all of her songs sound the same, and most often sing about the same subject. All of her Mimi singles were virtually about getting dumped and longing for your ex. Get some range, please.

That's all for this time! If you'd like to drop us a line, email us at blnn@isafan.lisascottlee.com

What? We're not giving out our personal email! Lisa's free one will do just fine, thank you very much.

Baby Give Her One More Chance


It leaked! It finally leaked!

So incase you don't have a pulse, Dannii Minogue's video for I Can't Sleep At Night has finally hit the net.

You can download the video here.
And a low quality song rip here.

Absolutely fab track, but i'm glad this isn't leading in the album. Not the hit she needs.

In related news, Dannii's Webmaster Nathan is officially pissed.

Woopsie.

What's That Sound?!



This week's Pop Gem of the Week comes from none other than pint-size pop goddess Kylie Minogue! What Do I Have To Do? is an excellent piece of early 90's Dance Pop and in my opinion (the only one that matters), is the epitome of 90's Pop music. There is no Kylie fan that doesn't like this song. And you will like it too.

Frostbite



She's been crowned the ultimate girl band member by Boys Bible Arena, ES magazine has quoted her to be the cool Kitten, she sang for Nelson Mandela, and even made Prince Charles blush. But nobody's perfect and people make mistakes...major mistakes...well, in this case at least. Hey Kitty is the name of that mistake. It leaked onto the internet a few days ago, and it features some unknown rent-a-rappers doing what they do worst on songs: rap. In October 2005, former Atomic Kitten member Jenny Frost released her solo debut single on All Around The World Records. Crash Landing was a collaboration with Route One, and an excellent pop song. So why is La Frost hopping on the rap bandwagon you say? Well, after Crash Landing peaked at #47 on the UK charts, it comes as no surprise that she may just be desperate for a hit single. But why at the risk of sacrificing good pop music?! Oh, J-Fro...you've let me down.

Walsh Me Go


As if last month's boisterous internet clatter concerning Girls Aloud's decision to release Whole Lotta History as their next single wasn't enough, Louis Walsh, The Aloud's manager, allegedly spoke with an Aloud fan (not me, I swear!) about the Girls' choice to release Whole Lotta History as their next single. According to the fan, Louis said that he wanted Watch Me Go released instead of Whole Lotta History, which was chosen by the Girls themselves.

I'm not surprised Louis didn't want WLH released. I don't think anybody wanted it released. Whether WLH charts well or not, nothing can ameliorate the unscrupulous ineptitude of the Aloud's past two single releases...except maybe a Models single release.

Britney is a lesbian!


...on her upcoming appearance on Will And Grace.

Apparently Ms. Spears will play a republican lesbian who lies to keep her job. Sounds interesting enough. It's supposed to be terribly funny- so it does seems as if it'll be worth a watch.
