ANTM: Michael Jackson and the Kardashians

Reblogged from - By Joey Guerra, Sixela Harpy

Laura as the King of Pop. (Tim Peterson/Pottle Productions) I’m not sure what’s more ridiculous about this week’s episode of America’s Next Top Model. (And in Tyra-world, as we know, ridiculous is relative.) Bianca’s superiority complex and anger issues. Shannon being boring. (“I have a senstive spirit!”) Alexandria’s ramble about minnows and sharks and teeth and fins. (No idea.) The carousel-runway combo the girls have to master in a matter of seconds. The presence of the Kardashians and the fact they offer the winner of the merry-go-challenge ONE outfit from their collection. THEIR COLLECTION THAT IS SOLD AT SEARS. No, no, no. The whopper this week is that the photo challenge had the girls posing as Michael Jackson. Who is recently dead. Whose involuntary manslaughter trial is going on RIGHT NOW. Oh, and also? That it required some of the girls to essentially be in blackface. (Or blackish, whatever.) Oh, Tyra. Haven’t we gone down this road before? Wait, this isn't the Drag Racejudging table? (Mathieu Young/The CW) La Toya Jackson, always ready for her close-up to honor her brother, served as a consultant and guest judge. Look, I love MJ as much as the next person. And I’m sure this is meant to be an homage/tribute/honor. But just the timing makes it unfortunate, to say the least. Country-pie Laura takes best photo of the week — SHAMOWN! — selected by La Toya herself. I like it, sure, and I love Laura. But I really think Alexandria, Domnique or even Kayla were a few moonwalks above. Seriously, I’m sort of in love with Alexandria’s photo. Bianca’s attitude reflect in her shot, which is devoid of energy and inspiration. Beat it, indeed. And, of course, we get Shannon, Allison and Lisa in dark makeup. Just WOW. In honor of Michael’s legacy of love, no one goes home — a lucky save for Lisa and my girl Angelea. 716 still in effect! ANTM All Stars airs at 8 p.m. Wednesdays on the CW.

As previously reported, Adele's "Hello" spends a second week at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 (dated Nov. 21) and Ariana Grande flies in at No. 7 with "Focus," the lead track from her forthcoming album, Moonlight. Notably, Grande becomes the first artist to debut in the top 10 with the lead singles from each of her first three albums.

It’s never too early in the day, or too late at night, for deep and luscious bass, particularly when they come with classic Michael Jackson. And by classic, I’m referring to MJ’s timeless, everlasting imprint in music history. Thriller is one of the most recognizable, widely loved hits in the world. It’s practically universally revered holy pop scripture. TropiKult collective producer N2N braves a sizable risk in taking on such an anthem when he decided to remix the track as an extension of his string of MJ remixes from a set...

The mansion where Michael Jackson died is close to a final sale. The King of Pop died in the Los Angeles home, which is located in the exclusive Holmby Hills neighbourhood, of acute Propofol intoxication in June 2009. TMZ reports that extremely rich investment banker Steven Mayer purchased the 17,000 sq ft, seven-bedroom abode at a price ranging between $17 and $20 million. The estate was originally listed at $24 million. Steven reportedly had no qualms about the fact that Michael met his demise there. The house has been on and off the market...

You've never heard "Smooth Criminal" quite like this before.
