Before 2010 is welcomed into our adolescent lives, I believe it to be  important to reflect on a few recent things that have been rather defining. Putting aside good or bad, sometimes guilty is all relative. The list of the following are a compilation of some Pop Divas latest hits I can’t get enough of.

1. Shakira’s “She-Wolf” – Shake it girl is all that comes to mind. Shakira is a Columbian goddess incarnete from, hence the name, a sensual, body suit wearing wolf. This is by far one of the best work out beats. The diamond cavern, lack of clothing and pulsating beats are what make this video pretty endearing closing out 2009.

2. Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance” – Gaga. That essentially sums up 2009. In Bad Romance, yet again she boasts her eclectic, outrageous and diamond-clustered self. Despite the fact the song is lacking in comparison to the beats of say Poker Face, the video fails not.

3. Taylor Momsen’s “A.D.D.” – Okay, yes it is that Taylor Momsen. Gossip Girl’s little Jenny seems to be growing up on more than just the show as she apparently has been rocking out for quite awhile with her band “The Pretty Reckless”. Although not one techincal video has been produced, there are various YouTube favorites that show off this young starlette’s chords. To be honest, I was surprised Momsen’s pretty intense outcome. Much better than her time on Gossip Girl.
