So I’ve been waiting to watch “Platinum Hit” with Jewel and Kara DioGuardi (P.S. facebook keeps telling me to add her cause we have soo many friends in common… but I don’t wanna seem like a geek…) on Bravo for a few weeks now, and finally got to watch the first two episodes… I’m hooked. Seriously. My friend, Rachel who I was watching it with told me to settle down a few times. There’s something about watching people doing what I do that makes my blood boil… 😀
I also met Jes Hudak at Lestats a few weeks ago, and bumped into her again at one of my shows in LA. She’s a good girl. I’m a little nervous about them talking about her and some sort of romance with the other guy on the show, cause from what I’ve seen, she doesn’t seem like the kind of girl to jump into something like that… But that’s how TV does it… It’s all about drama! I called the first guy getting kicked off, cause he was pretty boring… just some white guy with not much of a character. (He didn’t add much value to the show… except for the pumpkin shirt and brown pants…)
I’ll talk more about the 2nd week when I try next weeks challenge. (Write a dance hit…. OMG… I DUNNO HOW THAT’S GONNA WORK….)
Anyways, the first week was a song about Los Angeles. I already wrote “LA is Not My Home” and all kinds of negative songs about it… but this time I thought I’d try a new spin. I started with the “Hook” like they talked about on the show. (I do that anyways…) But the hook came almost immediately. “In the city of Angels” with sort of an “Eminemesque” guitar riff from “Rehab”. I’d love Rob Deez or Jimmy Powers to write a rap for the 3rd verse, and probably more time to fix the key, cause I don’t think I sang it very well, but it was 3 in the morning and I couldn’t wake my neighbors… ANYWAYS… no more excuses, here’s the first week!
