Zayn Malik- Pillow Talk
So we’ll p*** off the neighbours..
The music video to Zayn Malik’s new song pillow talk is honestly amazing, I love the way that the video is similar to where are you now by Justin Bieber. Also there is a short remix of those two songs.. Please someone remix it to make not me but everyone happy?? Thanks.. Everyone knows that Zayn and Gigi had a thing but the chemistry which some fan girls may cry over..

There has been so much support from fans regarding his new look, new video and new sound. I’m very proud of Zayn and this is an amazing song.. People may say he caused a stir but who doesn’t after they left 1D . Let’s not forget he was adamant not to even preform and audition on the next stage of X-Factor, let alone being in one of the biggest boybands. Lets just hope he stays on track and keeps creating these visually captivating music videos and music.
Coldplay- Hymn For The Weekend
Now.. Not many people are happy with this video.. this video is both beautiful, visually captivating and is set in a beautiful India.
Yet I do understand both arguments as many people getting annoyed with music artists using Indian culture as something just to use as a fashion statement. Poverty isn’t fashionable and we know by looking at adverts or charities how much poverty there is. The video is set in a slum area within India, but that isn’t what India is all about. There are beautiful captivating temples, farmlands and homes that they could have easily filmed in. Also to point out that due to the fact holi is the celebration of colours they have colours thrown onto them to make the video look better..
why didn’t they choose another desi woman instead of Beyoncé

Yet NOBODY (but if you’re one of those somebody’s who do then what the f***) will say Beyoncé doesn’t look good in the traditional dress.
Beyoncé did nothing wrong…y’all really gotta learn the difference between appreciation and appropriation

//platform.twitter.com/widgets.jsYet it’s catchy.. I’m in love with her album and her new sound.. I’m just wondering if she’ll give us a video too..
Now back to Rhi-Rhi going platinum in less than a week, to become a platinum artist they would have had to sold over 1,000,000 copies of their album. This is where the speculation starts.. allegedly Samsung has a marketing deal alongside Tidal (Jay-Z’s music service), Samsung snapped up one million copies of the album as a part of their $25 million sportsmanship with the music service and gave them away for free on tidal.
1 MILLION in under 15 hrs!!!! NAVY R die!!!! Thank u to all my fans and @samsungmobileus Listen to ANTI now: https://t.co/0FRaUXR8bk

So what do you think.. did Rhianna cheat her way into making a platinum record or was it just a rumor.. Was Beyoncé right in looking the way she does, and was it right to show the poverty in India.. Has Zayn gone too far in his music video?? I’d love to hear your comments below!
