"I take these pills to make me thin/I dye my hair and cut my skin" are the opening lines to the new video "Invisible" by Skylar Grey.
They are lyrics that teenage girls are relating to more than you want to believe. Grey is not emo by any stretch of the means but the new pop mantra. You might think Demi Lovatto and Skyler are not in the same genre but they are, and speaking to the same audience.
Skylar had this to say about the "Invisible" video, the title track from her alubm due in 2012.;
“I wanted it to be Peter Parker by day meets Spiderman by night. An everyday kid who isn't really that cool but there's something else going on that people don't know about. That's kind of the journey that I went on. I discovered that my insecurities and my flaws were things that I actually need to embrace, and I let them become my superpowers.”
"Invisible" is powerful, not as powerful as Lovatto's "Skyscraper" but in the sense that inside of even the most confident girl or woman, they will feel a mess and invisible.

Diagnosis: No Need To Take Those Pills, Dye Your Hair Or Cut Your Skin...
OK. I am absolutely dumbfounded. I just watched the new video "This Is My Moment" from Rebecca Black. The video has been viewed 10 million times in the past 2 days. Dumbfounded. If this is her moment, let it be over fast and swift. You guys know I am not mean but...this video....this song. Wow. I rather pass kidney stones than watch it again.
The only plus I can think of is that 166,000 people "like" it on You Tube, and 302,000 people dislike it. The way she looks at the camera, the way she tries to dance, it is like the video is on a 2 second delay for lameness. This girl almost made "Friday's" suck for God's sake.
This video, this song, is one of the worst I have ever seen or heard. A week after Demi Lovatto gives us "Skyscraper" Rebecca Black gives us her moment and I rather be on the toilet having a moment.
Am I wrong about this?-Dr.FB
Diagnosis: 10 Million Views? Seriously?
"Another Cup Of Green Tea...." Ha! With lyrics like that you know I dig "Need You Now" by Lady Antbellum.
2 Members of All Star Weekend have covered "Need You Know" and it's pretty cool.
Allstar Weekend's debut album Suddenly is in stores and on iTunes now for only $6.99.
They will also be performing with Demi Lavato this weekend at the Glendale Galleria which is sure to be teen madness.
