Video: Ricky Martin - Come With Me

I've never been a Ricky Martin fan. Sure, he's a great singer and dancer, and looks great, but I've never been into latino pop. However, I love his latest single "Come With Me", an amazing mixture of dance-pop and house music! I'd definately buy a full Ricky Martin album with that sound. Keep doing electronic music, Ricky!

"Come With Me" is out now on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon UK and Amazon US. There is also a special remix EP by 7th Heaven.

Kids React To Gay Marriage

You have to check out this heartwarming video where kids react to gay marriage. I think the world would be a much better place if grown-ups were as open-minded as children.

"Justin Bieber married a guy!"

Kylie Minogue - Skirt (Remixes)

Video: Geri Halliwell - Half Of Me

I'm a big Spice Girls fan and I also love Geri Halliwell's solo music. The other day, Geri finally released her brand new single "Half Of Me" and you can see the video down below. It's a cute pop track that I'd love to buy. However, it's only available in Australia, which is a real shame.

Record labels should by now that they need to make songs available worldwide right away, or people will just download the track illegally. I like the song though and I really hope Geri's releasing a new solo album in the near future!
