Video Review: Demi Lovato throws house party in “Sorry Not Sorry” video

SNS-sm

On June 29, Demi Lovato threw a house party, invited a production crew. They filmed this music video and made the party less enjoyable for some as they had a follow marks and do reshoots on takes. This is the video of that house party.

The video for “Sorry Not Sorry” is a simple video with a concept that has been done over and over again for years. Pop star throws a wild and crazy party and then films it for the music video. But Demi does it her way. She pretty much shows us a party that she threw and didn’t invite us to and rubs it into our faces.

The video is pretty much like Miley Cyrus’ “We Won’t Stop” but more sane and fewer drugs. Demi looks sexy af in it and is just like “Sorry, not sorry you weren’t invited to my party” with those looks. The video is pretty much a middle finger to anyone that wasn’t invited to this party because this party was EVERYTHING. Literally looks like a blast. Better than the party that Justin Bieber threw in the “Beauty and A Beat” video.

Jamie Foxx was there with Wiz Khalifa, which is a party just with the two of them. Fucking Paris Hilton was DJing the party. Like we all missed out on this party and I’m really sour. Like I’m saltier than a soft pretzel at a sporting event. I’ve heard Paris Hilton’s set is everything and to be there in person for it? It was also a bubble party in this house and fuck, who doesn’t love a bubbly party.

The video is beautifully shot with the lighting very similar to what was featured in the “Cool For The Summer” video. Everything about this video is gorgeous. Again, Demi looks so hot in the video. Her ponytail game is strong. The part of the video that irritates me is the fact that how well-lit and produced it is something that was done at a random house party that she threw. Yes, I get that isn’t true because I’m a full believer that Demi sits at home with her dogs and knits sexy outfits. But if you are going to go with that being the plot then you should go fully into it. Like, have it be a little bit of a shaky cam with not great shots and whatnot. It would have been even better. They did it for some of the video but it was only in the beginning and not throughout.

While I’m extremely pissed off that I wasn’t invited to this party, “Sorry Not Sorry” video is amazing and beautiful. Demi, call me next time you throw a house party. I’ll bring an obsessive fan who won’t get tears on your outfit, cake (who doesn’t love cake?), and life-size cut outs of the Jonas Brothers that may or may not have bodies or heads. The party doesn’t start til I walk in. Slide into my DMs and we’ll talk.

Single Review: “Sorry Not Sorry” by Demi Lovato

sorrynotsorry sm

Lovatics rejoice as their queen has come back. Demi Lovato released her newest single to the world today and boy, it’s a Demi Lovato single.

“Sorry Not Sorry” is pretty much a fuck you anthem. It has an R&B feel to it that isn’t like any other Demi Lovato song that she has put out. She has given us rock, pop, ballads, and now she has tapped into the soulful R&B. It fits her voice extremely well, especially with the way she has used it for “Sorry Not Sorry.”

The song itself is extremely catchy and just slay with its lyrics. Every time I listen to it, It reminds me of Ariana Grande’s “The Way.” It sounds like certain parts of it. It something that you can easily hear at parts of it and you can also hear it subtly underneath. It doesn’t really hurt the song but it really doesn’t help it. It just made me think of that song while I was listening to “Sorry Not Sorry.” I think they could have still used/sample that song but done it in a different way that wouldn’t make me think of Ariana Grande.

“Sorry Not Sorry” is a great song but it’s just not up to Demi Lovato’s usual banger status. It’s not a “Cool for the Summer” but yet it’s not as bad as “Who’s that Boy.” I think the music video will help make it amazing as long as it isn’t something bad or stupid.

Top 5ive: Hannah Montana

hannah-sm

It’s time to reflect on an amazing artist that was taken too soon. It’s time that we list the top songs of Hannah Montana.

If you don’t know who the fuck Hannah Montana is then you need to go watch all four season of what some consider to be the greatest Disney Channel show of all time. Hannah is a cultural iconic. So let’s break down the Top 5ive Hannah Montana songs. “The Best of Both Worlds” isn’t on the list because it’s the most iconic song of the entire series. It’s too obvious that it was going to be number one.

5. I’ll Always Remember You

While the “Hannah Montana: Forever” isn’t as memorable as the third before it, “I’ll Always Remember You” is a classic because of how it’s used in the show. It was played as Miley Stewart pondered revealing her secret to the world and clips played as Miley walked around her closet. It was soul crushing and made the fact that the show was ending. It’s also showed off Hannah’s vocals so well.

4. Life’s What You Make It

One of the only songs off of the first two soundtracks that didn’t talk about leading a double life, “Life’s What You Make It” is a jam. It’s a song with a message that doesn’t get old about just living life to the fullest no matter the situation. It was the song that unfortunately followed “Nobody’s Perfect” but it was just a jam. Especially when it came to her live performances. It’s also made me upset that we never got to see the Hannah Montana Concert taping in full. Like, you are already filming it, just air it make money off of it.

3. Rock Star

This song should have been single for “Hannah Montana 2” because they played it enough on Disney Channel. “Rock Star” is one of the underrated songs off of that album. It had an infectious beat with lyrics that presented the whole “double life” that wasn’t obvious but yet did it in a more relatable way. Let’s be real, at some points with the musical directions, it was shocking that no one ever assumed that Hannah Montana might not be who she seems. With “Rock Star,” it was more like “I’m not the typical girl. I could fix your car while fixing my hair.” That’s way more relatable them most of the double life lyrics that was presented in the show.

2. Ice Cream Freeze

The most underrated song in the entire show’s history. It’s a hidden gem on the “Hannah Montana 3” soundtrack. It’s pretty much Hannah’s answer to the “Hoedown Throwdown.” It’s a dance pop line down number that mixes catchy lyrics with easy dance moves. The groove wasn’t bad either with some country influences in there. It’s just one of those songs that will put a smile on your face.

1. Nobody’s Perfect

This song. Where do I begin with this song. “Nobody’s Perfect” is just as iconic as “The Best of Both Worlds.” It’s the sister’s song of it. Everything thing about just amazing. The lyrics are catchy, the music video and her outfit are forever stuck in our heads. They even made a cover of it where Miley, Lily, and Oliver used it to help memorize the bones. It’s like they made this song with the idea of changing the theme song in season two. It would have been such a good theme as well, even though it’s hard to imagine the show without hearing “The Best of Both Worlds.” But this song will forever be the second greatest song in the history of the show.

Honorable Mention: “The Best of Both Worlds”

The movie mix is the best version of “The Best of Both Worlds,” but this song is iconic.

Unreleased single review: “Sad Serenade” by Selena Gomez

serenade-sm

One of the most beloved songs off of her debut solo album “Stars Dance,” “Sad Serenade” is an unreleased song that many have wondered why Selena Gomez didn’t include it. So I thought that it was time this #MemoriesCureMondays to review this song that is I believe is a missed opportunity for a single. It’s time to reminisce about our own Sad Serenade with what never was.

“Sad Serenade” follows the EDM/europop style that is pretty much present throughout “Stars Dance.” The arrangement of the song is something that is rather addictive. The beat is catchy and just makes you want to dance. This contradicts the lyrics, which takes more of a sadder nature. The song is about relationship that ended badly. The progression in throughout the song is great. It’s builds up to the chorus and then let’s loose. The lyrics are classic pop lyrics that will get stuck in your head for days. It’s the most upbeat heartbreak song. The vocals on the song are the best because you can feel how vulnerable Selena is in the song. It’s the most open and honest song that Seleners did for “Stars Dance,” which was pretty much what Selena’s ode to hating Justin Bieber.

The song itself is a Selena classic that really should have been on the album. It could have easily replaced one of the tracks that wasn’t that great because this song is addicting to listen to. It’s sheer pop perfection, something that you would have to wait to hear from Selena until years later. It just one of those song that never gets old. It’s been four years since the song was “leaked” and I still listen to it. It’s just something about the song that makes it so good.

No one is really sure why it didn’t make the cut. Selena Gomez never let us know nor actually acknowledge the existence of the song, I don’t think the SoundCloud below is her  actually hers. It’s a shame because it’s the best song off of “Stars Dance” which is ironic because it didn’t make it. Don’t get me wrong, the album is a classic with a lot of jams. They just don’t match up to what “Sad Serenade” could have been. Can you picture an acoustic version or a live version of it?
