Happy Birthday, Simon Le Bon!

Simon Le Bon, the lead singer of Duran Duran, produced some of my favorite ’80s music of all time — “Rio,” “Hungry Like the Wolf,” “Girls on Film,” “Reflex,” “New Moon on Monday,” to name just a few. And he was so hot back in the day. Major crush. Happy birthday, dude!

Snooki Whips Her Pouf Back And Forth

I promise this video will be the dumbest 46 seconds of your life: Snooki whips her pouf to Willow Smith’s ditty, “Whip My Hair.” Wait, we thought Snooks nixed the pouf to “look more mature”? [YouTube]…

Kanye West Album Cover Allegedly Banned From Walmart

Walmart has apparently banned Kanye West’s new CD over seXXXy monster cover art. “Yooooo they banned my album cover!” Kanye whined on Twitter last night. “So Nirvana can have a naked human being on the cover but I can’t have a PAINTING of a monster with no arms and a polka dot tail and wings.”***…

I’m With The Cat Band

Ignore the fact that this video — for the song “Red Lights” — is by a band called Holy F**k. Instead, enjoy the fact that it chronicles an alternate cat-iverse where cats play in bands and drive around dogs like perfect little kitten cabbies. Best part: little cat paws playing the drums.

If The Beatles Covered Lady Gaga

Usually when someone messes with The Beatles, I throw a fit. But this Beatles “cover” of Lady Gaga’s “Telephone” — played by a Beatles cover band, I assume? — is so kickass that I wanna download it on my iPod. I’m pretty sure those green pants mean George Harrison gets to be Beyoncé. [YouTube]…

1993 Time Machine: An Ode To Evan Dando And Juliana Hatfield

In honor of my tickets to see Juliana Hatfield and Evan Dando in concert TOGETHER … TONIGHT, I thought we could take a stroll down my memory lane, circa 1993. All I have to do is hear any song from Become What You Are by the Juliana Hatfield Three, especially “Spin the Bottle,” which…

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]…

Taylor Swift’s New Taylor Swift-ian Album Cover

Red lipstick? Check. Sparkly dress? Check. Oodles of blonde curls? Check. Yes, this is most assuredly Taylor Swift’s new album cover. Speak Now won’t “drop,” as they say in the biz, until October 25th. [People]…

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…
