Lady Gaga Does “Born This Way” With A Mariachi Band

 

Yesterday was Lady Gaga‘s 25th birthday, and she Tweeted in the morning, “I woke up to chicken and waffles in bed, pink tulips, + little monster bday videos. I love you! I was #bornthisday.” Later in the night, her friends threw her a surprise party at a Mexican restaurant. Apparently, Gaga spent an awful lot of time communing with the restaurant’s mariachi band. “She was onstage for most of the night performing for all her friends,” a source said. “No one knew she was going to go up there and perform with them. I think she just loves to be on stage.” One notable moment—this mariachi version of “Born This Way.” Honestly, I still think the song is kind boring, in addition to sounding a lot like “Express Yourself,” but the mariachi instruments do really add something.

Rachel Maddow Gets Her Very Own Country Song

 

I love Rachel Maddow as much as the next bi-curious liberal with a cable subscription. But still, I can’t compete with this guy. Country musician Marc Black penned “I Love You Rachel Maddow,” an ode to his favorite MSNBC host, her hair, and the way she stands up to Pat Buchanan. Hopefully Maddow is flattered and doesn’t think Marc is a stalker. But even if he is … hey, it’s pretty catchy! [YouTube via After Ellen] Keep reading »

Death Metal Version Of Rebecca Black’s “Friday” Somehow More Appealing Than Original


I worked really hard all last week to stop Rebecca Black‘s “Friday” from creeping onto my radar; like, I could see it hovering peripherally, and I heard snippets of the song, but I refused to give it my full attention. Then I saw that there was a metal version of the tune and I just couldn’t resist listening. From what I can tell, this version is more soothing. Keep reading »

Little Girls Debut Music Video Criticizing Lil Wayne’s Sexist Lyrics

Kick ass! A nine-year-old and a 10-year-old who call themselves Watoto From The Nile wrote and performed a hip-hop song about rapper Lil Wayne’s derogatory and sexist lyrics. How much do you love these little girls? Amelia, when you retire in 2031 and replace yourself with the five-year-old girl who won’t marry until she has a job, can these cuties replace me, Kate and Ami?

Hanson’s All Growns Up

Teeny-bopper, mmm-boppers, Hanson are back with a new song. The video for “Give a Little” from their latest album Shout it Out is still jump-up-and-down while you chew your bubble gum fun, but with a slightly more adult feel. Like maybe you’re chewing Orbitz instead of Bubble Yum. I still can’t believe they have facial hair. I feel like a perv for thinking they’re cute. What do you think of their new single? [ONTD] Keep reading »

“Siamese Dream” Girl Found!

If you were a music fan in the ’90s then you listened to Siamese Dream by the Smashing Pumpkins until your cassette tape unraveled or your CD was too scratched to play again. Usually while lamenting an unrequited crush (or maybe that was just me). Ever wonder what happened to those little girls on the cover? Well, frontman Billy Corgan found one of them in a very unusual place. Find out where after the jump. Keep reading »

What’s Your Wedding Song — Real Or Imagined?

Sitting in Starbucks awhile ago, Jack Johnson‘s cute little ditty “Banana Pancakes” came over the sound system. “Pretend like it’s the weekend now,” I sang to myself, thinking, This song is significant. Why is this song significant? Then I remembered: my friend Tania picked “Banana Pancakes” as her first dance song when she married her now-husband Mark this summer. At the time, I thought “Banana Pancakes” wasn’t particularly romantic, but hearing it again, I think it’s sweet. Keep reading »

Ani Di Franco And Margaret Cho Bring You … Captain Cameltoe!


This Ani Di Franco/Margaret Cho animated music video for “Captain Cameltoe,” off Cho’s new album Cho Dependent, is something you’ll appreciate fully the more stoned you get. (JK! Don’t do drugs, kids!) But I can’t say my 16-year-old self isn’t thrilled two of her real-life superheroes finally teamed up as Captain Cameltoe and Righteous Babe. And who doesn’t need to hear “I’m a freaking rock star superhero bitch” on repeat?! New personal mantra, what what! [MargaretCho.com] Keep reading »
