Iggy Azalea’s “Bounce,” Bounces Right Into Cultural Appropriation Territory

Bounce?

I’m going to walk you through what I imagine might have been the thought process/creative storyboarding for this new Indian-themed* music video from Australian rapper/singer Iggy Azalea.

“I love saris! They’re so pretty! Also, elephants! What if that old Indian guy was my stern uncle? Let’s all have Bindis! Bindis for everyone! Old Indian guys bring gravitas to this party jam! Sad Indian ragamuffin children will bring double gravitas! Does this sari make my butt look hot? It does, doesn’t it? Holi festival! Wait, no! I’m the Indian elephant goddess Ganesha, except with a better gold jumpsuit!” Keep reading »

David Bowie’s Latest Star-Studded Music Video Is Totally Amazing (And Probably NSFW)

Watch it!

David Bowie gets what David Bowie wants, and if that means having Marion Cotillard and Gary Oldman star in his latest music video, then by God, that’s what’s going to happen. The Thin White Duke is at it again with this impressive video for the titular track from The Next Day, which you probably shouldn’t watch at work. There’s a couple of boobs in there. Also, Marion as church whore is my new style muse. [Vulture]

Cat Power, she of the haunting vocals and paralyzing stage fright, is back with a new video for the song “Manhattan.”  Aside from a newish cropped ‘do, Ms. Power (Chan Marshall) seems like she’s got a new, more positive attitude. And for what it’s worth, those guys dancing in the subway are everywhere and they always seem to find the car I’m in. [MTV]

"Stevie Jobs, chillin' in heaven."

A few years ago, this British series called “Nathan Barley” (it’s hilarious, seriously, check it out) featured a plot line about a young pop singer with a track called “Bad Uncle.” It was hilariously bad and super funny. I thought of it today when I watched the new video from atrocious “singer” Petite Meller (yup) called “Stevie Jobs.” Does the song feature her writhing provocatively on a large computer mouse whilst badly singing “put your finger on my application”? A bunch of models dressed in Steve Jobs’ signature black turtleneck and tennis shoes? A supersized computer keyboard and a rapper that pays homage to the McDonald’s “I’m lovin’ it” jingle? You betcha. All that and more.

I watched it hoping that it was some kind of self-aware, campy parody. I went back and looked at the email sent to me directly by Petite, but couldn’t find a whiff of irony. I’m afraid that “Stevie Jobs” is as shamelessly fucking bad as it seems. Which of course makes it endlessly watchable. [YouTube]

No blurred lines here: YouTube has banned Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” music video for crossing the line. Thicke’s sexy, sultry music video featuring T.I. and Pharrell violated the site’s terms of agreement by being too porny. The unrated version of “Blurred Lines” featured writhing, dancing models undressing down nude-colored lingerie and the phrase “Robin Thicke Has A Big D” flashes onscreen during the song. As Julie put it when she posted the video last week, “Yup, this video falls squarely into the ‘women and their tits-as-set dressing’ category.” You can still watch the more covered-up version of “Blurred Lines” although he looks too much like his dad Alan Thicke — the father on “Growing Pains” — for me to find him remotely sexy.

Justin Timberlake’s Music Video For “Mirrors” Is A Touching Tribute To His Grandparents

One of my favorite songs on Justin Timberlake’s just released album, The 20/20 Experience – which is growing on me! –  is “Mirrors,” which also happens to be the latest single. Justin released the music video for the song yesterday, which he dedicated to his grandparents William and Sadie. The video — which doesn’t even feature Justin until towards the end — tells the story of his grandparents’ 63-year marriage and, damn, if it didn’t make me get a little teary. I’m still waiting for Justin to bring sexy back again, but tugging at my heartstrings will do for now.

I'm gone with the wind fabulous!

I have so much love for so many “Real Housewives,” but I believe Kenya Moore of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” is my absolute favorite crazy, insofar as she might actually be insane. For those of you who aren’t on board with “RHOA” — where do I begin? She started off on the wrong foot with another new cast member, Porsha Stewart, on the gang’s trip to Anguilla. Names were called, buttons were pushed, weaves were pulled, and it ended with Kenya proclaiming, “I’m gone with the wind fabulous!,” and twirling away. She literally twirled away.

Zeitgeist hilarity ensued; even fucking Beyonce name-checked Kenya when she said her Super Bowl half-time show was “gone with the wind fabulous.” Then Kenya ended up in fisticuffs with Southern belle Phaedra Parks over a Donkey Booty workout video or some shit. Basically, everyone hates her, and so here I am today, right now, presenting you with this here gift to end all gifts: Ms. Kenya Moore’s new music video, “Gone With The Wind Fabulous,” in which she throws shade at ev-ery-one. It is incredible and words do not suffice. Kenya, I live for you. [Official Kenya Moore]

Thank Christ The Knife are almost back with a new record. Their last, Silent Shout was totally genius, as was Karin Dreijer Andersson’s solo project Fever Ray, which resulted in one of the best and weirdest awards acceptance speeches ever.

For their latest video, the band gathered together a group of male dancers to “deconstruct images of maleness, power and leadership. Who are the people we trust as our leaders and why? What do we have to learn from those we consider inferior? In a sport setting where one would traditionally consider a group of men as powerful and in charge, an unexpected leader emerges.”

Also, the song is pretty great. Enjoy! [Youtube]

Do you like androgyny? David Bowie? Tilda Swinton? Then you’re going to love this new Bowie video featuring all that and more. The incomparable Tilda and David star as a settled older couple who are rocked by their young, androgynous David Bowie Motherfucker neighbor. “The Stars (Are Out Tonight),” directed by Floria Sigismondi, takes a poke at the idea of Bowie as the aging, settled rock star. David, Tilda, we will love you forever. [YouTube]
