Take that, Katy Perry and your whipped-cream-spewing/fireworks-exploding boobs. Two can play this game! Ke$ha, the greatest artist of our generation, has tapped into the “Jersey Shore” spirit with her new song, “Sleazy.” It’s the cliché “Your Money Doesn’t Impress Me, Dude,” girl power-ish tune that every female singer or singing group does.

If you weren’t already aware of Lady Gaga‘s greaser dude alter ego, Jo Calderone, you are after last night’s VMAs. Especially Britney Spears, who almost got to smooch him. While I enjoyed Jo, especially his performance of “You And I” with Brian May, it maybe wasn’t the best venue for this particular brand of performance art and made some people, well, uncomfortable.
