Carly Simon Sings “You’re So Vain” With Taylor Swift, All The Moms In The Crowd Go Wild

Taylor Swift Carly Simon Youre So Vain
You probably think this song is about you, don't you?

If you asked the average Taylor Swift fan who Carly Simon was, I’m not super confident they would know who you were talking about. The average Taylor Swift fan’s mom, though? She’s been singing along to “No Secrets” since way back in the day. So when Tay-Tay announced that she was bringing out Ms. Simon for a duet on a recent stop on her Red Tour, I’m pretty sure the deafening roar that ensued was the sound of a few thousand really, really excited moms. In related news? Carly looks amaaaaazing. Those boots! [YouTube via Rolling Stone]

Fiona Apple's "Hot Knife"

Fiona Apple, what happened to your octopus?  She should do all her music videos while wearing a cephalopod on her head. Maybe Paul Thomas Anderson, who directed “Hot Knife,” wouldn’t let her. Oh well. It’s still pretty good. By the way, that other woman in the video, facing off against Fiona? That’s her sister, the singer Maude Maggart, who also sang on Fiona’s new album The Idler Wheel… [SPIN]

Here’s a mashup of the “Growing Pains” theme song with Robin Thicke’s song of the summer, “Blurred Lines” — oh, and the video is mashed up as well.

Uncle Jesse Is Getting His “Full House” Band Back Together

This Friday is a big day for early-’90s nostalgia buffs, “Full House” fans, and John Stamos fangirls (and fanboys!), because Uncle Jesse’s fictional band, Jesse and the Rippers, is making a comeback. Stamos hinted at the news by posting a video on Instagram of him and the guys singing the “Full House” theme song. “Never thought I’d be singing THIS song,” he wrote. It was soon confirmed that the band would be appearing on Friday’s episode of “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.” No word yet on whether they will be accompanied by Bob Saget and/or an Olsen Twin, but hey, we can dream.
