Beyoncé’s Ode To “The Best Thing I Never Had”


Beyoncé has released the video for “Best Thing I Never Had,” and normally, I am all about new Beyoncé videos. But I’m not so sure about this one. It starts with B standing around in bridal lingerie, awkwardly singing to an ex. As the video proceeds, we see Beyoncé and said ex at prom (where he dances with another girl) and Beyoncé at her wedding with the ex in attendance (wearing a pair of bad glasses) as she belts out lyrics like, “Thank god you blew it/ Thank god I dodged a bullet.” Now, I love the sentiment of this song. But really—a woman is singing to her ex on her wedding day? Who came up with this concept? Also, I don’t recommend rolling around in the grass in a wedding dress. Just sayin’.

LuAnn De Lesseps Recruits Jill Zarin And Kelly Bensimon For “Chic, C’est La Vie”

 

Everything I need to know I learned from a Countess LuAnn de Lesseps music video. Last year, we were taught that “Money Can’t Buy You Class.” And now in her new video for “Chic, C’est La Vie,” LuAnn has the following lessons to share: (a) saying a few French words makes you all the more fabulous, (b) diamonds are like, really important, and (c) every girl needs her besties—this time she has buddies Jill Zarin and Kelly Bensimon along to help her with the song. But the best part is when LuAnn tries to get philosophical. “Find your dreams within yourself and live with dignity/ Hair done, jewelry on, Oh mirror on the wall/ Beauty, class, and elegance fly within the soul.” Yeah, that almost rhymes.

Trust Me, I’m Doing You A Favor By Not Posting James Franco’s Music Video

God, James effing Franco. I hate James Franco so much. Why? James Franco believes — and the world seems to be all too happy to confirm — that he is smarter and more clever and funnier than he really is. He is not any of those things! It’s a conspiracy! Don’t believe it, people! Look, James Franco happens to be very good at one thing: being very, very attractive. James Franco has been riding on his pretty points for a long time now, and I’m so over it. His art sucks, his performance art sucks, his writing certifiably sucks, and judging from his nearly-unlistenable musical collaboration with performance artist Kalup Linzy, he is terrible at music, too. Stop the madness! Do not perpetuate this fallacy of Franco as some kind of genius renaissance mouse or something. He’s just a very hot dude who has used his prettiness to pull a sham on the world. (And okay fine, here’s the stupid video, after the jump.) Keep reading »

Today’s Lady News: MTV & VH1 Won’t Air Kanye’s “Monster” Video

  • Both MTV and VH1 agreed not to air Kanye West’s music video for “Monster,” which grotesquely eroticizes dead women, despite a new disclaimer about how it isn’t meant to be “misogynist.” I am sure he will find a way to write a song about how he’s been victimized by this. [Adios Barbie]
  • North Carolina Governor Bev Perdue vetoed an awful anti-abortion bill which would have required a woman seeking an abortion to wait 24 hours, receive counseling, and get an ultrasound before she could have the procedure. (Thanks, commenter LR52185, for the link.) [News-Observer]
  • Christine Lagarde, the finance minister of France, was selected to be the first-ever woman to run the International Monetary Fund today. She will replace Dominique Strauss-Kahn, who riddled the IMF with sex scandals and then was forced to step down after he was accused of sexually assaulting a New York City hotel maid. [NY Times]

A Scientology Sing-A-Long


I would like to declare a new genre of music: Scientology soul. Hey, it could be the new Christian rock. Apparently, the Church of Scientology made this music video for the song “We Stand Tall” in 1990 and it features many a Scientologist of note, from John Travolta to David Miscavige. Heck, it even shows L. Ron Hubbard himself. Anyone feeling the urge to convert after seeing those mighty … cruise ships? Oh man, this song is in my head now. [Huffington Post]

Britney Spears Says Eff You To The Press In New Video


Britney Spears must have gotten the memo that we were disappointed with the video for “Hold It Against Me,” because she’s really brought it with her new one, “I Wanna Go.” It starts out with an imagined press conference. “Can you confirm that you are pregnant with Brad Pitt‘s love child?” a reporter asks. “That is false,” says Britney. “It’s quintuplets.” Keep reading »
