MACY’S THANKSGIVING DAY PARADE GONE WILD FEAT. KYLIE MINOGUE

What do marshmallows, giant inflatable elephants, and whitey tighties have in common?

All of these random delights are seen in Kylie Minogue’s new video for All the Lovers. It’s a beautifully shot video, that even in its sexiness is actually about love. It’s seriously like a Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade gone wild, delivered in a classy way that only Minogue could pull off.

All The Lovers is the first single off Minogue’s eleventh studio album, Aphrodite, which is set to release on July 6th. After more than 68 million records sold the 42-year-old looks better than ever, still full of light.

Says Kylie (regarding the song): “The single was one of the last tracks to be written for the album. As I was recording it I knew that ‘All the Lovers’ had to be the first single; it sums up the euphoria of the album perfectly. It gives me goose-bumps, so I’m really excited to hear what everyone thinks of it.”

GOOD FOR YOU, EMINEM

Nothing but mad love for this song/video!

Eminem is back and stronger than ever. The controversial rapper who struggled for years with an addiction to painkillers and anti-depressants is now clean and spitting rhymes fused with an edge of deep rooted empowerment. Eminem, who nearly lost his life after an accidental methadone overdose, admitted to popping as many as 20 pills a day at the height of his problems.

A perhaps unlikely source, Sir Elton John, helped Eminem throughout his battle with coming clean. John battled drugs and alcohol addictions early on in his career but has been sober since the 1980s. The odd pairing first caused controversy when John made a surprise appearance with Eminem at the 2001 Grammy Awards. Many protested the collaboration citing Eminem’s lyrics at the time as being filled with hatred and homophobia. But that all seems to be a thing of the past, as Eminem’s new single Not Afraid is heightened with a true sense of maturity and a person who has risen from the ash of a dark journey in the theme of the song.

It’s undoubtedly an anthem for anyone who has ever felt afraid to face the demons in their own life.

In an interview with BBC Radio in January, John said: “I’ve been helping Eminem over the last 18 months and he’s doing brilliantly.”
