The arts have been a big part of my life for as long as I can remember.  Creativity drives passion.  This is a weekly look into the world of artists in music, art and dance and what they create.  Feed your imagination!

“Monogamy is the way to go. Just put your lips together and blow.” Oh Britney Spears… you sexy little kitten.  Brian Friedman has been one of my favorite choreographers for quite some time.  To sum it up in two words he is fucking brilliant.  The fluidity and preciseness of the movements he creates have proven to be tough to match.  Another thing I adore is the quiet confidence he exudes.  It is perceived through his dance so at times does not seem very quiet but rather very much in your face, but his execution is always solid.  That shows confidence and true talent.  I have yet to partake in one of his master classes as I am currently back into dance after quite a hiatus, but plan to very soon!  I will be ready for it.  I have enjoyed his choreography on past seasons of So You Think You Can Dance and the many videos up on YouTube.  Go Brian! Be Free! This video is dripping with sex and the performance makes you want to get up and move.  I found myself swaying my hips and head and loving every second of it.  And an appearance from JoJo Gomez (blonde hair and black outfit) is great! She is another one of my favorite choreographers.  Get it grrl.  Dancing in heels is always incredibly sexy and with seductive moves to match it makes for a fantastic video.

P.S. Millennium Dance Complex in North Hollywood (where this is shot) is a top-notch studio to take classes!  #BrianSaysBFree

I was first introduced to $kinny’s mixtape by my friend Joey.  He listens to a lot of up and coming artists and I am always elated to hear the new tracks he has discovered.  I took a liking to this particular mixtape and have been a fan ever since. Roll up a blunt and enjoy Ghetto Disneyland.  It has a lot of solid tracks on it.  It is so great when you have the fortunate opportunity to find an album that can be played from start to finish with pure enjoyment.  That is a sign of a quality artist.  I am excited to see his progression in the music industry as he has been gaining a lot of traction in the past year.

I discovered this artist on Instagram.  Her pictures captivate me.  Glamour meets edgy meets despondent grrl.  I currently have a print of hers on my living room wall and display it with pure elation.  Her collection of artwork displays what life is like for a grrl.  The best and worst qualities of the female nature are blended together into a beautiful rendition of life.  I hope to purchase a few more works of hers very soon to add to my collection.  I have quite the affinity toward pen drawing as I enjoy working in this medium so I think that furthered my interest in this particular artist.  And the female body is forever an exquisite form.
