Amy Winehouse: Music Industry's Angel

BY: GURU JAY

Amy Winehouse: Music Industry's Angel


Amy Winehouse was England's Janis Joplin. Without question, Amy is singing with the angels now. Winehouse and Joplin may very well be recording duets produced by Saint Peter himself.

The legendary songstress established a legacy of greatness. This celebrity was one of a kind in a full house of Hollywood stars. You see the spotlight shined on her everyday. Also, no one can question her amazing abilities.

I highly recommend Amy (2015) because the documentary film showcases the entertainer's originality. You'll like how the music artist became unique. Plus, you'll appreciate her vocals much better after seeing this expert performer go to work.

At her peak, she wasn't more popular than Britney Spears; but that didn't matter. All that matters is the music she gave to the world. And the music she gave was a life of empathy and kindness.

In a sense, Amy's name is synonymous with music. Scratch that. Amy means music in every language!Plus, like Lady Gaga the young lady was fearless and she made bold moves.

Winehouse passionately crooned. Maybe, she was best known for Back to Black or back to Rehab. So the story goes...In her own words to paraphrase a bit “Yes I been black but when I come back...they tried to make me go to rehab. I won't go.” She said NO NO to celebrity rehab.

What Chuck Berry is to Rock and Roll, what Bono is to U2, Amy Winehouse was to Neo Soul. She developed new sounds in the studio booth and on the concert stage. Who can deny Amy Winehouse her legendary status? She rightfully claimed her throne in England like Janis did in America.

In a nutshell, Amy meant the world to the music industry because she pioneered a creative sound. Her vocal chords stretch toward the heavens. It is my honor and privilege to write this tribute to a great soul.

Keeping Up with the Joneses Movie Review

BY: GURU JAY

Keeping Up with the Joneses Movie Review


Where's Guru Jay been you say? I was on vacation because everybody is entitled to a break. Thank you for giving me one.

Well do I have a blog for you today or what. This is my Keeping Up with the Joneses movie review. For starters,I feel the writing is phenomenal.

It's like a full course meal in every way. Zach Galifianakis performs above expectation. And that guy...ahem from Mad Men Jon Hamm delivers the good and services on a silver platter.

You must love the cool soundtrack. I sure do. Here's a movie about change. We all go through changes. I had to change a tire the other day.

Plus, it is a movie filled with laughter from start to finish. The comedy is absurd at times. You'll love rich scenes and suspenseful moments. I thoroughly enjoy the plot, especially the tongue teaser. There are Snakes BUT not on a plane.

To put things in perspective, I saw it today. Yes the day of the World Series. If you've been following my Twitter @IamGuruJay you know I love baseball by now.

Anyway, the movie stars shine bright lights. The acting is great. Overall, I liked my day at the theaters. There were many thespians there in my audience.

And it's the audience's response that makes a movie or a blog or a website fantastic. While I'm on the word fantastic, the director did a fantastic job. And the producers made the most out of their budget.

If you want to see a crowd-pleaser, then Keeping Up with the Joneses is your movie. After careful consideration, I give the film editing an A-. It is truly excellent entertainment. There are bad actors and some I assume good.

This is well executed and lively. Here's something I would watch with my family for a second time. Give it three stars out of five.

Rotten Tomatoes got it wrong. Keeping Up with the Joneses should make $100 million in a fair world. Will it make it that far? I don't have an answer for you. I'm only a Guru,who knows one thing and one thing only and that is...question everything.

My Bob Dylan Story

BY: GURU JAY

Times are a changing. Oh was Bob Dylan right. I've been hard at work trying to create a masterpiece.

Right now, I'm writing on the back of typing paper with an ink pen. Before this I started writing the Bob Dylan story on my Apple computer. In other words, I took my precious time on this blog and I accept star treatment.

You see, most writers just go to Starbucks, drink their Grandes, and write their blogs. Well at Guru Jay, I create original entertainment stories which will blow your mind. Maybe, I might just show the behind the scenes creation. I've written over 400 blogs and each one is different. It's a piece of me. So with that said. Here you go, my friend.

It's official. Bob Dylan won the Nobel Prize in Literature. What more can the 75 year old accomplish?

Some people don't win a prize, let alone a Nobel Prize. We're rewarded for our efforts sometimes. Other times we work and work and work like Rihanna and nothing happens. That's when you gotta pull yourself up by your own bootstraps and make it happen. In the end, longevity can come.

The legendary Bob Dylan made things happen; and, he's making it happen right now. His boots were made for walking but this ain't a Jessica Simpson song. Yes, Bob Dylan sings things. No, I can't get you his autograph.

It seems music (everything, really) is taken too literal today. Beyonce says Becky with the good hair and everybody automatically assumes she's referring to an actual person. We need more metaphors in music such as Dylan's Like a Rolling Stone. Moreover, Like the Rolling Stones say “You can't always get what you want but if you try sometimes you might find you get what you need.” You see Bob Dylan's music doesn't fall on deaf ears.

The Dynamic Acting of Cameron Diaz

The Dynamic Acting of Cameron Diaz

Someone is walking into the tallest building downtown and he's creating a scene. It appears there's a blonde woman with him. What's that? The woman is a badass like Drew Barrymore and Lucy Liu. Plus, she's comparable to Reese Witherspoon.

Oh, it's O.K. That someone happens to own a magazine. And that woman he's with is none other than the one and only Cameron Diaz. Every now and then, people require imagery like this as much as their thirst for water.

SOME LIKE IT HOT

Moreover, milk does the body good. If there's a lady who's all that it's Cameron Diaz. Cameron's body of work reminds you of Sofia Vergara because like Sofia it's hot. Although she's not technically a comedienne, Cameron cracks you up in movies such as Bad Teacher. Maybe, the Hollywood actress could be casted in the Hot Pursuit sequel.

For what it's worth, Cameron Diaz doesn't look a day over 36. I guess Ben Stiller was right. There's something about Mary foreal. Diaz even wrote a book spilling her perfect body secrets.

Also, there's no business like showbiz. This actor shows how hard work pays off over time. According to sources, her networth is about $140 million. In other words, Cameron Diaz doesn't have to work anymore.

How do you calculate the entertainment value of this celebrity? Where do I begin? Cameron is energetic and fantastic. Plus, she is a people person and maybe a people pleaser.

It's always a joy seeing Cameron Diaz smile. She's so sweet. Only Julia Roberts has a sweeter smile.

Who thinks they should do Charlie's Angels one more time? I think Diaz would do it.



We love Cameron Diaz for the same reason we love Jennifer Aniston. She is like a Friend. Do you get it? I'll wait for that to sink in.

All the Planets Orbit Around Miley Cyrus

All the Planets Orbit Around Miley Cyrus



Howdy! Miley Cyrus is her name and music is her game. I wonder if the Dead Petz celebrity has any pet peeves. Anyway, let's start the show.

Fans were Partying in the U.S.A. when Miley Cyrus became a Voice coach. I've watched this season of the Voice so far, mainly for Miley. Wasn't that clever how the singer enlisted Dolly Parton in order to form her team? Who wouldn't want to be chosen for Team Miley?

In addition, Miley Cyrus will remain on my VIP list forever. I support my celebrities and I'm loyal without a doubt. Even when she marries Liam Hemsworth, I will still like her because she's hot. No matter what I'm down for the Cyrus cause.

Plus, I love Miley's personality. The entertainer is nonjudgmental. She can sing her ass off; and bake a cake at the same time. What?!

You could argue Miley Cyrus is in the process of building a bigger name than Britney Spears. All the planets orbit around Miley Cyrus. Right now, she has 31 million Twitter followers. Britney is beating her with 47 million. However, things change.

Did Britney Spears ever show Miley Cyrus love? Probably not because the music industry is more competitive than Harvard. You see Britney is back in business, and that makes Miley her competition. Check out Britney Spears: Back In Full Swing at your leisure.

Also related are Why Christina Aguliera Is the Voice and How Adam Levine Is Different. You can find all these and more inside the Guru Jay Archives.

Wouldn't it be great to see these two collaborate? I don't care if they sing along together or if Britney only sings background vocals. All I want is to see them work side-by-side on something. Shout out to Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj. Let's make it happen. A man can dream... All the planets orbit around Miley Cyrus.
