Ooh-la la! The Material Girl is ready for some football love this weekend during her Super Bowl Halftime Show and with all the press Ms. M is getting – why not give them what they want?

Madonna shakes her pom-poms for her latest song – Give Me All Your Luvin’ – feat. Nicki Minaj and M.I.A…Whaddya think? Does Madge still make you want to dance, for inspiration?

Props: Marilyn Monroe references, Nicki Minaj’s bustier, the little rap breaks mid-song by Minaj and M.I.A, the Japanese girls with babydoll masks

Quirks: The song itself is a little bubblegum for Madam M.  M.I.A.’s look and dancing looks offbeat, ala Carlton Banks…


Thanks to Muve Music from Cricket Wireless, we had the chance to catch the gifted and beautiful Beatriz Luengo perform LIVE a winning trifecta of songs from her new album, Bela y Sus Moskitas Muertas.  Her unique brand of music – inspired by a rich tapestry of life experiences as an actress, circus performer, and singer(!) – is impressive.  Though critics will compare her to a softer version of Shakira, she packs a punch with her lyrics and delivery that will keep fans and critics alike looking forward to what’s next.  She’s more of a nod to Bebe, with a wink to Fiona Apple funk and No Doubt ska, all tucked into amazing pair of glittering heels.  Luengo, who hails from Spain, is no newcomer to the music scene.  Earlier singles have had a good showing on the international charts, proving she is more than ready for her primetime spotlight.

With collaborations from artists from Orishas, Reik and even reggae royalty, Ziggy Marley, Beatriz is slaying “moskitas” by the dozen and getting winning looks from Univision’s Premio Lo Nuestro Awards (Best Music Video of the Year) and solid reviews from the music critics.

Looks like Beatriz Luengo’s is going to keep us grooving into the new year!

And speaking of the new year,  did you make a resolution to be a wiser spender of your hard-earned cash?  Good (b/c now I’m not alone at the sample sales and happy hours)!  Cricket Wireless offers plans that allow you to be your DJ right from your very own phone. You can download new music as much as you text, talk or surf the web on your phone – all in one unlimited plan, with no contract,  no hidden fees and nationwide coverage.   Finally, a resolution that I can check off the list that keeps my wallet (and ears) happy! Cheers to that!
