I try to be good, but I don't wanna be

Returning to music...

Blake Lewis was on TRL (yes, it's still going) today to "deliver" his video for "Break Anotha." He passed my "what does he look like?" test (note that this picture is not from that appearance--he was going for the vest-tie-short sleeved shirt look instead). It was just nice to get to see promotion on a channel that wasn't MTV Hits (though, in true TRL style, only about half the video was played).

The first half of the interview was pretty much stuff we've heard before; the second half was rapidfire questions, the answers to which would probably look odd if I typed them out (see: how do you spell "Jordin Sparks"? Which, contrary to his phone spelling, he got right). In other words, nothing notable, but as if I was going to pass up an opportunity to write about him.

Hey!
It's Aleera, but with a different account.
Hope you're better...

Hey, I'm with a pop blog too, so... I was wondering... could you please add me on your LINKs list?

Thanx

finally! Blake looked good enough that he may be my non festive advent calendar treat of the day. I just wish that the album was doing better. That can be my christmas wish this year. Oh and world peace. Of course.

PS my word verif. was snomgung, which sounds like the name of an icelandic pop thrash band. "welcome to trl with their latest hit Stabbing Santa it's Snomgung!"

That would be mine, too :( Poor Blake. Ha ha ha ha at your Snomgung comment--that got real laughter!

Oh, and as a P.S., I've actually seen the video on TV now, but (beyond the TRL debut) only on MTV Hits, a channel which virtually no one gets. But yes, at least he looked presentable! No bandanas or ridiculous baggy sportswear/tracksuit type of stuff.
