Danielle Staub Performs Her Creepy Song For Maury Povich

 

Former “Real Housewives of New Jersey” cast member Danielle Staub and her “singing partner,” Lori Michaels, stopped by “The Maury Povich Show” the other day. But they weren’t there for a paternity test, no sir, they were there to perform their single, “Real Close.” By George! They’ve created a new genre of…

What Do We Think Of The Video For Taylor Swift’s “Mine”?

Taylor Swift’s music video for “Mine” (off Speak Now, which come out October 25th) debuted on Friday and it is nothing too original. It’s typical Taylor: poppy beats, pouting through the blonde curls, and a happily-ever-after ending. What do y’all think? [Just Jared]…

What’s Your Favorite Song To Work Out To?

As I’m sure you’ve noticed in the two “Fearlessly Fit” videos I’ve done so far, I’m not what you’d call a fitness buff. I get my yoga on (sometimes) and I’m definitely game to try new types of fitness activities — like hip-hop dance or anti-gravity yoga — but strenuous physical activity that involves, um,…

Aretha Franklin Duets With Condoleezza Rice On “I Say A Little Prayer”

In one of their weirdest pairings ever, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Aretha Franklin teamed up for a duet on “I Say A Little Prayer” at a Philly benefit concert for inner-city youth. Unfortunately, the AP didn’t clip the whole song, but I’d like to think Condi whipped out the jazz hands at…

Saggy Old Men Cover Katy Perry’s “California Gurls”

If you want to look at saggy old dudes with blush smeared on their faces singing about constipation in a parody of Katy Perry’s “California Gurls,” then by all means, watch this disturbing video.

I recommend you watch this adorable video of baby pandas instead. [BuzzFeed]…

Frisky Q&A: Margaret Cho Talks Homicidal Exes And Camel Toe

Margaret Cho, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways. There’s your 1994 show “All-American Girl.” Your stand-up comedy concerts like “I’m The One That I Want” and “Notorious C.H.O.” Your shows “The Cho Show,” and most recently, “Drop Dead Diva.” I could go on, but I don’t want to embarrass you with…

The Situation Vs. The Countess: Whose Single Sucks Worse?

Lord have mercy, The Situation has released a “rap” song. Titled “The Situation,” the verdict is clear — he should stick to fist-pumping on the boardwalk.

Alas, this “Jersey Shore” juicehead isn’t the only reality star with musical aspirations. Who could forget Countess LuAnn DeLesseps from “The Real Housewives of NYC,” who recently released…

Alicia Keys Addresses Interracial Dating In “Unthinkable (I’m Ready)”

Alicia Keys’ new music video for “Unthinkable (I’m Ready)” addresses the heavy topic of interracial dating throughout the decades. I like the video, actually, because it shows how bigotry doesn’t necessarily disappear with time. But over at Feministing, our friend Courtney M. Martin — who’s also a Frisky contributor — is unimpressed. Marti…

Let’s Hope “The Song I Wish Taylor Swift Would Write” Is The Last Of The Backlash

Taylor Swift backlash: it was inevitable. We here at The Frisky are firmly in the for-cripes-sakes-they’re-just-love-songs-chill-out-everybody camp and we always will be. But as we’ve already seen, more than a few bloggers are angrily typing away, cataloging how Taylor Swift is (and I quote) “a feminist’s worst nightmare.” I’m sorry, but do you people…

Behold The Music Flesh Map

Fleshmap is a series of studies done by artists dedicated to an inquiry into human desire and its expression through touch, feel, and sound. Yep—it’s a little bit of crazy art science for ya. My favorite study on the site is about music genres and body parts. It maps out the body parts invoked most…

What Do Your Musical Tastes Say About You?

Blogger Lauren Leto, whoever you are, I love you. Your snarky list describing different authors and the people who read them made Amelia’s and my morning. Who reads Jodi Picoult? “Your mom when she’s at her time of the month.” Emily Griffin? “Women who give their boyfriend marriage ultimatums.” Sylvia Plath? “Girls who keep journals.”…

Berkeley Men’s A Capella Group Sings Lady Gaga’s “Poker Face”!

Sorry I didn’t post this clip earlier of Noteworthy, the UC Berkeley men’s a capella group, singing Lady Gaga! I was too busy sending it to everybody and watching it twice.

Even if you don’t know all the words to “Poker Face,” it’s worth watching for the booty-shaking dance moves alone. Please put…

Female Bloggers Ask, Is Taylor Swift Bad For Women?

Let me start off by saying a few things: I’m a feminist; I love Taylor Swift; and I also respect the minds of bloggers Kate Harding of Broadsheet and Amanda Hess of The Sexist.

But I really disagree with both of them, as well as with Sady Doyle on Bitch magazine’s She Pop blog,…

John Mayer doesn’t just open up to the paparazzi about private stuff with Jennifer Aniston—he composes ditties about her, too. Case in point: it doesn’t take Sherlock Holmes to figure out that “Heartbreak Warefare,” the first song on Mayer’s new album, Battle Studies is about Aniston being hung up over Brad Pitt:
