One of the things that Jon and I discovered after doing a blog challenge was that we want to blog more regularly. So every Monday will be Entertainment Mondays where we highlight our favourite movies or music for that week. Sometimes we’ll showcase our old favourite films and music artists other times we’ll write about our current obsessions. Jon and I will be taking turns writing this column and the first Entertainment Monday will be my turn. Hopefully, we’ll introduce you to new interests and start a dialogue with our readers.
The artist that I want to highlight today is Ariana Grande. Coincidently, I learnt about her from a blog post that I read a year ago. I went out to check out her music and I’ve been a fan since. I’m currently obsessed with her song Problem featuring Iggy Azalea. Ariana Grande is a 20 year old American artist who is an up and coming singer and actress. It was her success with her debut song The Way featuring Mac Miller and her role in the Nickelodeon show Victorious which helped her to become an international star.
I like Ariana Grande because she had big loud, flirty voice that reminds me of a young Mariah Carey. In fact, I think most of her video clips have a retro 90s vibe which makes me feel nostalgic as I grew up in the 90s.
Ariana Grande’s current single, Problem featuring Iggy Azalea is an upbeat and catchy song . It’s about being in love with someone who is not good for you. I also love the song because Iggy Azalea is in it and I’m fast becoming a fan of hers as well.
The video clip has a 60s theme and the dance number that Ariana does in it is so cute and can easily be copied by fans. I think Ariana’s live performances of this song have been very good. I first heard the song when she made an appearance on Ellen.
