I am an unapologetic Britney Spears superfan, so I welcome every musical endeavor of hers with open arms, even if they include collaborations with lame dorks like Will.i.am from the Black Eyed Peas. Brit and Will.i.am debuted the video for their single “Scream & Shout” last night, and I have so many feelings about it. First of all, it’s a great, fun, if completely soulless club song. Second, Britney Spears sing-talks with a posh British accent, why? Third, she looks amaaaaazing. Fourth, less Will.i.am, more Britney please. It’s no “Toxic,” but I’m happy to have Britney flexing her pop muscle again.
If you’re not on the Spank Rock short bus yet, you probably should be: Rapper/singer Naeem Juwan makes sexy, catchy-as-hell tracks. For his latest video, “Baby,” Spank enlists a crew of adorable kiddies as his backup clappers/cheer squad. Too cute.
Hannah Montana is deader than dead: Miley Cyrus’s newest musical offerings include “Bitches Love Cake,” this totally weird (on purpose) dubstep song with Borgore. It’s got a baby goat, panda and unicorn costumes, and a big ol’ cake . Oh, and Miley Cyrus’s freakishly long tongue. As commenter LR52185 told me when he sent this in, “Miley must have some Gene Simmons in her … her tongue is huuuuuuuuuuge.” All the better to lick Liam Hemsworth with, I suppose.
We just found out about Awkwafina and now we’re kind of in love. The tiny rapper created the track “My V@g,” in which she compares her vagina to a “chrome Range Rover / your vag / hatchback ’81 Toyota.” Yeah, it’s that good. [The Hairpin]
Maybe you’re a fan of Marina and the Diamonds and lady rapper Kitty Pryde? Or maybe you just like sloths. Either way, this video for “How To Be A Heartbreaker” will satisfy. [YouTube]
A Frisky reader sent me the lyric video for Pink’s new song “Slut Like Me” and asked what I think. To be honest, musically, I think it sucks. But I have a feeling he was asking what I really think about Pink owning the word “slut” and using it to describe herself — which I’m cool with in my own life. We have to be aware of the nuanced differences between how different people use “offensive words.” Those words can be powerful or harmful depending on who is using them and how. It’s totally different when I call myself a slut in a positive, pat-on-the-back way than it is when an angry man calls me a slut because I rejected him at a bar. (Or, you know, Rush Limbaugh calls Sandra Fluke a “slut.”) “Slut Like Me” is no great piece of music, though. I wish it was worthy of the debate over women using the word “slut” that it is going to cause! [YouTube]
What happens when you combine two of the most infectious pop culture events — “Honey Boo Boo Child” and South Korean dance sensation PSY? Pure magic, that’s what. Check out this “Honey Boo Boo Child”/”Gangnam Style” mashup and just try to keep your brain from exploding with joy. [YouTube]
Nevermind that I’ve never heard any of the songs in this clip because I’m approximately 100 years old, all you need to know is the Snuggie Kid is back, and he is better than ever. The be-Snuggied preteen — who stole our hearts with his pitch perfect rendition of Beyonce’s “Countdown” video — returns to offer his stellar dance moves for the VMA’s “Best Choreography In A Video” award. Is that a thing? Cool, dude. [YouTube]
In Nomads’ new music video for “Addicted to Love,” a mysterious woman “accidentally” spills Leighton Meester’s drink all over her … and they rush to the bathroom to “clean it up.” I think it’s rude that Leighton is leading poor Wilmer Valderrama on, if you ask me! [After Ellen]
Sir Ivan is what might happen if David Guest and “Juicy” Joe Giudice had an adult baby. He made this horrific song and spent approximately 99 percent of the music budget on body paint. So it’s basically can’t-look-away terrible. Color us thoroughly mindfucked. [Sir Ivan]
