In The Spotlight: Jaybird

Another spotlight for you all today! As always if you are or represent an upcoming artist, designer, producer, etc., and are interested in a feature on the blog, please email me with a request!

Today on The Spotlight, we have hip hop artist Jaybird! Hailing from San Diego, CA, Jaybird got his start in music very early. Growing up in a musical family and influenced by his own father’s R&B group, “The Isles,” the rapper started singing at the age of five. However, all wasn't easy for him. “My parents were divorced, though both stayed in my life,” he said. “My mom always kept me and my big brother in nice neighborhoods, but because of that, money was tight.” Holding on to faith and family, Jaybird acknowledges his upbringing is what made him a stronger artist.


"Love In The Fast Lane'-The Challenge: Free Agents E2 (RECAP)

How are you guys liking The Challenge: Free Agents?! I'm LOVING it, and I'm so glad that now that Scandal is over (I know you saw that crazy finale...¡Escandalo!), I can watch Free Agents at its normal time! Picking up from last week, there's definitely some love and lust in the air! At the beginning of the episode, Jessica and Dustin talk and flirt. Emilee wants him too, though, and knows Jessica is her competition. That night, the house has a costume party, celebrating another night back in the house. Dustin and Jessica make out in the staircase really quick, but Emilee makes her way into Dustin's bed! Dustin gets caught up playing the single game, but Nany catches him. Definitely think that Jessica is a better catch!

The next day, the players come to a racetrack and play "Auto Body Rally," during which T.J. lets them know that they will playing in pairs, with 13 guy-girl teams. The layout of the game is the players will race cars down the runway, stop before a set of hay bales, run around another set of hay bales to bikes for the final race. One person will steer the bike while riding backwards, and the other one will be pedaling. The team with the fast time will win, and be safe from elimination. The slowest four teams are going to the Draw, but everyone else still isn't safe, since the winners will get to pick two players to go to the elimination round (and it doesn't have to be a team!).


"Mommy Dearest"-The Game S7, E8 (RECAP)

Tuesday's episode of The Game! Picking up from last week's episode, Chardonnay comes over Blue and Keira's place to talk about the vow renewal ceremony, and asks Keira to be her maid of honor. Keira asks why, since Chardonnay is closer with Tasha. However, Tasha is too busy with her baby stuff to fulfill maid of honor duties. Keira tries to lie to get out of it, but Blue reveals that Keira really doesn't have anything going on, and can do it!  Now she has to organize stuff and make calls for the wedding!

Meanwhile, Tasha talks to her midwife about how to prepare for birth. Kelly and Brittany come over, and Kelly and Tasha immediately start laughing and joking like old times. Brittany starts making fun of Tasha for being "50 and pregnant," to which Kelly responds by kicking her out with Kelly's credit card to go shopping.


The Challenge: Free Agents Season Premiere (RECAP)

I'm excited to recap the newest season of MTV's The Challenge--The Challenge: Free Agents! This episode and the next will be a struggle to review since MTV has the show on Scandal Thursday at 10 p.m exactly, but I'm still watching!

This season, which marks the 25th season of The Challenge, takes place in Punte Del Este, Uruguay, South America! 28 MTV alumni came together to battle it out (see the full list of competitors here). When TJ announces the game to them, he lets them know that this is definitely an individual game. At the beginning of each challenge, everyone will be part of a team, or pair, or go alone, but at the end of the day, there are no teams. Every player is playing for himself!
