Making of a Star

Writing Songs for Miley Cyrus

When Jessie’s first record deal didn’t work out, she turned to songwriting and got herself a contract with Sony ATV where she started writing hit songs for Rihanna, Justin Timberlake, Christina Aguilera, and Alicia Keyes. Her biggest songwriting hit was Miley Cyrus’ song Party in the USA”!

2011: The Year of Jessie J!

Thanks to her hit single “Do It Like a Dude”, which went to number 2 on the charts, and her number 1 hit single “Price Tag” with B.o.B., we’re all super excited to listen to her debut album coming out in the UK on February 28, 2011! It’s debuting in the US in April and it’s called “Who You Are” and is a mix of dance, R&B, euphoric and reggae! If her first two singles are any indication, we’ll be hearing a lot from Jessie J in 2011!

Is Beyonce a Better Singer or Actor?

  • Way better singer.
  • She can act much better than she sings.
  • She's not very good at either.
  • I think she's a great singer and actor.

So even though Tangled was really funny i will always pick Brave. That's a really good point ^-^ I still like Tangled better. The plot made more sense and was better written (in my opinion though) I thought the humor was better as well; definitely a lot less crude! Also, the lack of songs in Brave bummed me out... it is a Disney Princess Movie :/ (Don't argue that it's Pixar!) Wait you think because it's a Disney movie there has to be singing!? Really that's dumb. Ok that Iis just my opinion. But really that's dumb.
