I guess at some point The Frisky should start ignoring Robin Thicke and his cries for attention. But right now we’re still caught in the vicious What, really? REALLY?!? cycle. Today, Thicke released a new music video from Paula, his album about estranged wife Paula Patton, for a song called “Still Madly Crazy.” The melancholy song itself is meh, but the music video has a group of cute kids reenacting a wedding. Possibly Paula and Robin’s wedding, as the little groom is a white boy and the little bride is a Black girl. Anyway, it’s seriously the cutest music video … but dudebro really needs to stop it already. All the public pressure Thicke is putting on his estranged wife to take him back is just dickish at this point. [YouTube] Keep reading »
If you don’t know who Kina Grannis is, you’ve been missing out. Kina just released her sophomore studio album, Elements, which earned her the #2 spot on iTunes Singer Songwriter Chart (and happens to be a favorite here at The Frisky). Elements, the follow-up to her debut album Stairwells, takes a bold step forward with a more mature sound and deals with weighty topics like loss and impermanence. Oh, and we LOVE it.
“The Fire,” Kina’s first single from Elements, has a sound that’s been compared to that of Sara Bareilles and a stripped-down Florence + the Machine, and is quickly taking over the airways. As huge fans of Kina’s, The Frisky is THRILLED to debut her official music video for “The Fire”! Watch the video above and join us in absolutely loving her. To buy Kina’s new album, check out Elements on iTunes.
Here is the recipe for Avril Lavigne’s music video for her new single, “Hello Kitty”:
- 10 heaping scoops of Gwen Stefani’s Harajuku appropriation phase
- 3 cups Skrillex hair
- 2 cups assorted Skrillex noises (OK to sub generic brand “Scrillecks” here)
- 1.5 cups “Wait, isn’t Avril Lavigne my age? Why is this making me feel so old? Why is this song so loud? Why is she still singing about slumber parties?”
- 5 tablespoons PROBLEMATIC
- 2 tablespoons of that time you had a Skittles-eating contest with your brother and vomited rainbow-colored bile.
- A pinch of the most awkward sushi restaurant scene since you saw a white guy bow to the chef at a conveyer belt sushi restaurant in a suburban strip mall in Utah.
- Crumble “SERIOUSLY THOUGH, WTF” over the top and bake until crisp.
Yeeeepppp, that just about sums it up. Avril, you know I always want to have your back, but not this time. I’m going to go take two aspirin and lie down for awhile.
Icelandic singer Bjork is just a weirdo and I love her for it. She just released the video for her new song “Mutual Core,” which depicts a beautiful but terrifying natural disaster erupting all around her (donning a crazy blue wig, natch). Coral-like pieces rise up and cave in and slow-moving lava-esque sludge trudges, as slow gently falls. MTV may not play music videos anymore, but if they were all as visually engaging as this one, maybe they would change their minds. [Flavorwire]
