EMA 2010 at Madrid

The EMA Awards are round the corner and the voting have started in full swing. But don't you want to compare conclude your precious speculation of the winners. This is one stop spot learn about all the contenders, listen to their songs and get some gossips too!

BEST SONG

Fastest things first. It is comparatively easy-to-select category. "Best Song" . The legendary Eminem is back again along with the Rihanna, Katty Perry, Usher and Lady Gaga. Rihanna has a double probability of winning with her single "Rude Boy" and her joint venture with Eminem in "Love the way you lie". Hopefully, the jury doesn't get carried away by the Eminem mantra as he has other categories to win too, like the Best male or the Best HipHop. Best song should primarily focus on what it is meant for : the tune, the lyrical beauty and the message it tries to convey.


NOMINEES


  1. OMG, Usher.
  2. California Gurls, Katy Perry feat. Snoop Dogg.
  3. Love the Way You Lie, Eminem feat. Rihanna.
  4. Rude Boy, Rihanna.
  5. Bad Romance, Lady Gaga.

Eminem ft Rihanna- "Love the Way You Lie"

ALBUM: Recovery


The song is a tale of a falling relationship, an abusive and regretful love and violence. The violence would seem even more disturbing if only Eminem and Rihanna weren't singing it. Both of them had a personal experience with violence while in love. While Rihanna was the victim of domestic violence from her partner, Eminem himself had been one such violent partner. What more could a singer offer to his fans more than opening up his life infront of them? Atleast in that way, the message of the song is relatable. I liked the ranting rap. I liked Rihanna's soothing chorus which contrasted the rant. But unlike every love song, the message might not be acceptable by all. It goes like this. No matter how violently a guy treats his lover, she is bound to accept it as she belongs to him. This spooky aspect of tolerating domestic violence from loved one is viewed in the the girl and the guy's point of view.


Goods

Eminem's choice of words is extremely brilliant. Perhaps it was easy for him as he had experienced the feeling. The song resounds from the hearts of countless short-tempered lovers who are struggling to control their anger to avoid losing their loved ones. I really cried for these lines.


Now I know we said things

Did things

That we didn't mean

And we fall back

Into the same patterns

Same routine

But your temper's just as bad

As mine is

You're the same as me

But when it comes to love

You're just as blinded

Baby please come back

It wasn't you

Baby it was me

Maybe our relationship

Isn't as crazy as it seems

Maybe that's what happens

When a tornado meets a volcano

All I know is

I love you too much

To walk away though

Come inside

Pick up your bags off the sidewalk

Don't you hear sincerity

In my voice when I talk

Told you this is my fault

Look me in the eyeball

Next time I'm pissed

I'll aim my fist

At the dry wall

Next time

There will be no next time

I apologize

Even though I know it's lies

I'm tired of the games

I just want her back

I know I'm a liar

If she ever tries to fucking leave again

I'mma tie her to the bed

And set the house on fire


Just gonna stand there

And watch me burn

But that's alright

Because I like

The way it hurts

Just gonna stand there

And hear me cry

But that's alright

Because I love

The way you lie

I love the way you lie

I love the way you lie


The girl gets ready to leave unable to sustain the guy's anger each time when they fight. But the guy convinces her each time to stay back lying every time that he would control his anger. The girl sings that she gets carried away by his words and decides to stays back even when she knows that he is lying to her as always, because "she loves the way he lies".


Bads


If she ever tries to fucking leave again

I'mma tie her to the bed

And set the house on fire


A guy can't be so adament in wanting his girl to stay when she gets pissed of by his anger. There are better ways to keep our love from going away. He could rather try to control his anger.

Making of a colorful candy world

Caliornia gurls, perhaps is an apt nominee for the "Best Video" award. Maybe they might not have spent too much time and money in outdoors, while all they needed was a decently spaced studio to bring to life paintings of the Art Director.

The theme lies in a board game wherein Katy comes as a pretty little coin moving according to the dice thrown by Snoog. Her job is to rescue the girls who are captured in some form in the candy world.

GOOD

Whether or not the song relates to the Californian lifestyle, it demands your attention with colorful visuals and mouth watering candies all over. Atlast a smash for this summer has come. Katy is shot as a candy herself. The scene where she lies on top of a cotton-candy-like cloud is soooo cute. The chorus is really lively and it can make a wonderful feel-good song. But not when you have diabetes!!!

BAD

When compared to "the way you lie" which deals with a very intense theme, this theme seems so light as the candy themselves.

Katty wins not just an award, but a life partner through VMA!

It was only last year that Katy met Brand Russell, the British Comedian who was hosting the 2009's VMA. Within months, they became Mr. and Mrs.Brand. This year's EMA would not only see Katy performing on stage but also see the hot couple's presence.
