Carly Rae Jepsen: “This Kiss”

Carly Rae Jepsen‘s breakout album Kiss is packed with squeaky clean, saccharine pop songs that make the Disney Channel seem XXX-rated.

It’s award season, you guys! This is the time of year when I pretend that I don’t care, yet impulsively read pieces about whether Naomi Watts will or won’t get a nomination for Best Actress. It’s also the time of the year when I complain about the Grammy nominations and pray to my copy of […]

Yup! It’s that time of the year when DJs make epic, surprisingly not-annoying mash-ups of every pop song on the radio.
