Tune-In Tuesday - The Return: And Now I'm Poor

It was a total aPOPcalypse today!  Ugh!  My poor debit card!
First, the debut album by Carley Rae Jepson, singer of "Call Me Maybe" THE most infectious pop song in like... forever!  (Although those One Direction guys gave her a run for her money.)  Her follow-up, "Good Time" with Owl City is damn near close!  One of those rare artists that can score two "songs of the summer" in the same summer.  (Kinda like... well, we'll get to that...)

The new album by P!nk, the baddest bitch in pop music.  I don't think she gets enough credit.  "Blow Me (One Last Kiss)" is poppy and radio-friendly, but this lady has depth and one of the most soulful voices around.  Done!  (Also both these albums are available at target with four extra songs a piece!)

Finally, speaking of having two songs of the summer, this artists is practically synonymous with that expression...
Katy Perry's behind-the-scenes documentary Part of Me also came out today.  I saw it in theaters and it was VERY good.  It's surprisingly emotional, because she doesn't hold anything back and you really get a look at her struggle to get where she is and... well, of course you get to see the breakdown of her marriage to Russell Brand, who is tellingly absent from most of the film.  The drama is punctuated with live performances from her "California Dreams" tour which lasted roughly a year and took her all over the world.  Definitely two thumbs up!

Here's the trailer:

Rewatching it, I just realized that they guy dancers' pants are totally designed to draw attention to their butts. And the dancer in teal is totally hot.
