Thanks For The Beats, 2011.

December 25th, 2011 by Martine St-Victor

Like many, my life has a soundtrack. Music is both solace & motivation, every single day. Silence might be golden but music, is platinum. 2011 was a year of many things, including great tracks

Ostentatious Doesn’t Win Elections.

September 17th, 2008 by Martine St-Victor

In Beverly Hills last night, the great Barbra Streisand and the even greater Steven Spielberg respectively hosted Obama events at $2800 and $28500, a plate. The major faux-pas is that Senator Obama attended them. In the wake of financial crumbles, mortgage nightmares and major job cuts, the last image Middle America needs to see is [...]

Tragic Coverage

February 7th, 2008 by Martine St-Victor

For so many years, for my generation and the one before, Rolling Stones Magazine was a reference. Showcasing worthy music, analyzing the business of music and forecasting its trends. With its latest cover, the Magazine has fallen victim to sensationalism, regardless of how in-depth the inside story is. Britney Spears is an American Tragedy? Hardly. [...]

My West Coast Crush

January 8th, 2008 by Martine St-Victor

This morning I was awakened by heart-sinking news. My friend Francisco passed away. So young, so vibrant, so smart, so funny, so sexy, so handsome, so Francisco. When I met him years ago in Vancouver, I remember thinking “Wow!” Not only because he was so handsome but because he instantly made an impact on me [...]

Still a Coward

December 14th, 2007 by Martine St-Victor

I don’t care what ingenuity Ike Turner may or may not have injected into the world of Rock n’ Roll, he was what he was: a wife beater. When a man raises his hand on a woman, it speaks volume of his (or lack of) character, morals and values, regardless of whether or not he’s [...]

Rehab.

December 12th, 2007 by Martine St-Victor

“They tried to make me go to rehab I said no, no, no”.… and just like that, prophetically, Amy Winehouse’ first hit single, Rehab, was a glimpse into her less-than-perfect lifestyle. And now, emulating what seems to be the norm in the Entertainment biz, Winehouse is spiraling out of control in the difficult and unkind [...]

Battle of the Rolodexes.

December 11th, 2007 by Martine St-Victor

Oprah, Obama and now Will Smith? In what promises to be a celebrity-filled bandwagon, Will Smith announced yesterday that he would lend his support to the Barack Obama campaign. How that would help, I’m not sure and I worry about a candidate who could actually benefit from a Will Smith endorsement. Madonna has now joined [...]

To Endorse Or Not To Endorse

December 5th, 2007 by Martine St-Victor

Barbra Streisand is endorsing Hillary and Oprah is getting on the Obama campaign bus.Celebrities have the right to voice their political preferences even if they would be much more helpful fighting concrete social issues such as the pitiful state of education in poorer neighbourhoods but that might not be glamorous enough. Many pundits have condemned [...]

Look Who’s Turning 50.

November 20th, 2007 by Martine St-Victor

I’m not a big-action film type of girl. I don’t fancy weight lifters either. I do however marvel at Arnold Schwarzenegger. Today, Arnold turns 50. With all he has accomplished in such a short time, 50 is really nothing. To say Schwarzenegger is the American Dream on steroids is an understatement. He made a seemingly [...]

Here’s a wise piece of advice to Michelle Obama: stick to the Law (which you are exceptional at) and leave the sound bites to your husband, Barack. While speaking to a reporter, Michelle Obama blamed the hesitant Black vote for her husband on an inferiority complex Blacks have which leads them to believe others are [...]

Bons Baisers de Sarkozy

October 29th, 2007 by Martine St-Victor

Leave it to 60 minutes to rekindle my obsession for Men in French politics. Last night, France’s new President Nicolas Sarkozy showed the American public what the fuss has been all about. Brash, direct and un-cookie-cuttered-like, Sarko refused to dance to Lesley Stahl`s beat. Despite his cult-like love for all-things Americana, Sarko refused to answer [...]

Born to Run

October 9th, 2007 by Martine St-Victor

Watching 60 minutes on Sunday night, I was reacquainted with Bruce Springsteen. Reacquainted not because I had forgotten about him but in the current midst of hailed talentless artists, I had lost touch with the essence of Springsteen. With the soul of a working man and the naivety of a hometown boy, Bruce Springsteen is [...]

The House Britney Built

September 10th, 2007 by Martine St-Victor

The buzz was definitely over-rated and borderline annoying. The MTV Music Awards were to open with a breathtaking Britney Spears performance. Well, breathtaking it wasn’t. Britney simply looked uncomfortable and rusty. Mind you, I’m a big Britney fan. I think all she needs is discipline and a good kick in the ass and she’ll be [...]

Arrivederci, Grande Padrone.

September 6th, 2007 by Martine St-Victor

The Original velvet teddy bear has died. Luciano Pavarotti has always been great. Long before his ascension into popular charts with various duets alongside contemporary pop cultural iconic figures, Pavarotti had dominated a world where so few are chosen. Big and bigger than life, he was the Original. His tumultuous love life had only confirmed [...]

Live and Let Die

September 4th, 2007 by Martine St-Victor

A recent study in the Journal of Epidemiology & Community Health revealed that Rock Stars are 2 ½ times more likely to die in the first 5 years of their success than the average (talentless, I suppose) American or European. Really? I have my own study: the average American, European and yes, even the average [...]
