Pop Shots - Plan Ahead
Wednesday, September 14, 2011

Welcome to your weekly dose of pop world musings. Covering all things pop culture, this week Pop Shots is hitting you with thoughts on everything from Justin Bieber’s wedding plans, to Broadway’s plan to embrace a pop star, to how Justin Timberlake might want to consider planning the next part of his career, and since it’s Pop Shots you know everything is seasoned with a little bit of attitude.

* Moms, be prepared for your daughters to start planning their nuptials a little early. This after the news that Justin Bieber has said he wants to get married by the time he’s 25 or 26, at which point he hopes to be starting a family. The interview this information comes from was with Women’s Wear Daily, and no, I have no idea what conceivable connection a 17 year old boy could have with a magazine titled Women’s Wear Daily. That is, unless Bieber has been trying on Selena Gomez’s clothes, or working on a remake of “Thong Song.” In a perfect world, he’d be doing be both.

* Soulja Boy has soulja manned up and apologized for lyrics of his that slammed US troops currently at war. The lyrics in question, from the song “Let’s Be Real,” are “Fuck the FBI and fuck all the Army troops / Fighting for what? / Bitch be your own man.” I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention that nothing in that set of lyrics actually rhymed, which is a pretty big aspect of rap music, but even even leaving that aside, how are you going to slam the troops when the first part of your stage name is SOULJA?!?! Up next maybe he’ll slam some boys. You can take that however you want.

* Because apparently Broadway’s new target audience is tween and teen girls, Nick Jonas, who’s already been a part of productions of Les Miserables and Hairspray, has signed on to play the lead role in the Broadway production of How to Succeed in Show Business Without Really Trying. Jonas is taking over the role from Danielle Radcliffe and his run will go from January 24th to July 1st. In a related story, the guys from O-Town will be on Broadway, as well... begging for nickels.

* True Blood fans finally something something to drink other than blood and it’s all thanks to a few alcoholics at Betty Crocker. In an effort to get people to care about Betty Crocker again the company has been creating specialty drinks based on popular TV shows and the True Blood Blood-Red Sangria Cocktail is the latest in the series. The recipe seems to mirror the show perfectly in that it takes way too long to get started (face it, season one sucked), but once it’s together it will mess with your head pretty quickly.

* Top Gun, one of the many 80s movies that made Tom Cruise a household name, and the object of countless teenage girls’ affections, is being converted to 3D for a theatrical re-release. Not only will the 3D conversions take the flight scenes from the film to a whole new level, but now it’ll feel like the Scientology is coming right at us! If that isn’t a highway to the danger zone I don’t know what is.

* Something tells me we may not be seeing Justin Timberlake return to the recording booth for a little while. This is because on Saturday night he took home two Creative Arts Emmys, one in the category of guest actor in a comedy series for his appearance on Saturday Night Live, and one for his SNL monologue. This marks the second and third Creative Arts Emmy wins for Timberlake as he also won one back in 2007 for “D*ck in a Box.” Timberlake should really consider staying with acting, at least for now, because while singing talents were always good, when he was in N*Sync he was just one of five people girls loved, when he guest stars on SNL he’s the only reason anyone watches. Plus, we need a heck of lot more of THIS


And with that, my time is up for the week, but I'll be back next week with more shots on all things pop.

B-Lister Nation
B-Listers are a select group of artists that were featured in my Artist Of The Week series that ran every Monday from April of '06 to April of '11. All of these artists have two things in common; extreme talent, and a flight path far too under the radar for my liking. They took on the title of B-Listers as they embraced being featured by me, Adam B. Check out the AOTW Archives for all the interviews.
