Kelly Clarkson took a little bit of a break and when you look at it, it really was just a LITTLE bit of a break. She got off her tour, recorded a Christmas album, got married, knocked up and had said baby, somewhere in between there recorded a new album and BAM! The new single is already sky rocketing on the charts worldwide, called "Heartbeat Song."
The news today is that her brand new album, "Piece by Piece" will be available in stores and via download March 3rd. It's the follow up to 2011's smash, "Stronger" which took her on multiple tours with The Fray and Maroon 5 over the course of a couple years. So, what will "Piece by PIece" bring? This March, we find out!
"Who hurt you, Harry?" asks Meghan Trainor to the One Direction star. It turns out the two recently teamed up for a duet about breaking up and eventually, down the line getting back together again called "Someday, Maybe"
Meghan Trainor happens to be the hottest name in the music industry at the moment; hit single after hit single and writing credits galore (she even wrote "Sledgehammer" for Fifrth Harmony.) Her most recent team up happens to be with One Directions break out star, Harry Styles. Trainor, 21 and Stlyes 20 seem to be naturals writing about breakup at their young ages. Meghan has said that one of her ex's had told her that if he ever heard her music he would change the station. Well, he must be listening to static at this point because the girl and her "bass" are everywhere.
...well, how did you find yourself here, hmmm???
This little gem hasn't even aired during the show yet and won't until Wednesday! And here you are, finding it in my blog early...pat yourself on the back. This is like winning Super Mario Bros when you were 8, except in the musical capacity.
Here are 10 signs that you are...
1. It's something inside.
Describing how a soul mate makes you feel is difficult. It's a tenacious, profound and lingering emotion which no words can encompass.
If your partner is your soul mate, chances are he or she has been present in your past lives. You might even feel an odd sense of déjà vu, as if the moment in time has already taken place, perhaps a long time ago, perhaps in a different setting.
3. You just get each other.
Ever met two people who finish each others sentences? Some people call that spending too much time together, but I call it a soul mate connection. You might experience this with your best friend or your mother, but it is the telltale sign of a soul mate when you experience it with your partner.
4. You fall in love with his (or her) flaws.
No relationship is perfect, and even soul mate relationships will experience ups and downs. Still, that bond will be much harder to break. Soul mates have an easier time of accepting, even learning to love, each others imperfections.
5. It's intense.
A soul mate relationship may be more intense than normal relationships, in both good and sometimes bad ways. The most important thing is that, even during negative episodes, you're focused on resolving the problem and can see beyond the bad moment.
6. You two against the world.
Soul mates often see their relationship as "us against the world." They feel so linked together that they're ready and willing to take on any feat of life, so long as they have their soul mate by their side.
7. You're mentally inseparable.
Soul mates often have a mental connection similar to twins. They might pick up the phone to call each other at the exact same time. Though life may keep you apart at times, your minds will always be in tune if you are soul mates.
8. You feel secure and protected.
Regardless of the gender of your partner, he or she should always make you feel secure and protected. Your soul mate will make you feel like you have a guardian angel by your side. A person who plays on your insecurities, whether consciously or subconsciously, is not your soul mate.
9. You can't imagine your life without him (or her).
A soul mate is not someone you can walk away from that easily. It is someone you can't imagine being without, a person you believe is worth sticking with and fighting for.
10. You look each other in the eye.
Soul mates have a tendency to look into each others eyes when speaking more often than ordinary couples. It comes naturally from the deep-seated connection between them. Looking a person in the eye when speaking denotes a high level of comfort and confidence.
Seems like there's a lot to post when it comes to Justin Bieber lately, but lets face it, he's TRYING to better his image again. He did an impromptu acoustic show in Los Angeles the other night debuting some new material including a song he did with Cody Simpson called "Home to Mama." If he keeps making music like this, he's going to be around for a while...
Here the studio version in its entirity:
