Eminem, TLC, and Jar Jar Binks, oh my!

It’s been a really long time since I’ve thought about the song “If You Steal My Sunshine,” the movie “Bicentennial Man” (shudder), or the Y2K scare, but this video forced me to confront all those 1999 memories–and many more–in exactly 10 minutes. Before you hit play, be warned that side effects may include involuntarily singing along to Limp Bizkit, confusing feelings about Enrique Iglesias’ leather pants, extreme heartache for TLC, and nostalgia-induced vomiting. Godspeed. [YouTube]

Tomorrow is the Backstreet Boys’ 20th(!) anniversary. Yep, BSB has been around for two decades, and I have been a die-hard fan for pretty much that entire time. In fact, at one point my deep love for AJ McLean even informed my religious beliefs (I prayed every night for his hand in marriage). It seems like every week a new boy band emerges and then fades into obscurity just as quickly. So what’s the secret to BSB’s longevity? Well, besides being genuinely talented, charismatic, and appreciative of their fans, I’ve put together a list of 10 other reasons they’ve been around so long, illustrated by GIFs, obviously. Up-and-coming boy bands might want to take notes… Keep reading »

"Gentleman"

Granted, I can’t understand what Korean pop star Psy is singing about in his new song “Gentleman,” his follow up to “Gangnam Style.” But his behavior in this video is anything but gentlemanly: he rips off a woman’s bikini top, pulls a chair out from underneath another, and acts like a general asshole towards women until one shows him that she’s his equal, I suppose, by being a jerk right back. The premise of the video, as well as the dancing, is pretty ridiculous. But then again, I suppose ridiculousness is Psy’s thing? [YouTube]

It’s Spring Cleaning Week here at The Frisky, and in addition to tips on how to organize your makeup and clean out your dating life, I thought it would be an excellent time to pay homage to the movies, TV shows, music, and podcasts that we like to absentmindedly watch and/or listen to while we straighten up the living room and scrub the kitchen floor. After the jump, check out The Frisky staff’s preferred cleaning soundtracks and shows (including two votes for “The Real Housewives,”) and please share your own in the comments! Keep reading »

"It'll never be Manhattan."

Cat Power, she of the haunting vocals and paralyzing stage fright, is back with a new video for the song “Manhattan.”  Aside from a newish cropped ‘do, Ms. Power (Chan Marshall) seems like she’s got a new, more positive attitude. And for what it’s worth, those guys dancing in the subway are everywhere and they always seem to find the car I’m in. [MTV]

Watch her rock out to "Boogie Wonderland"!

This is Ronan, a three-year old sea lion living at the University of California at Santa Cruz, and she loves to dance. She first bobbed her head to Creedence Clearwater Revival’s “Down On The Corner,” and since then has rocked out to songs by the Backstreet Boys and Earth, Wind & Fire. Aside from being adorable, Ronan’s dance moves are actually kind of a big deal from a scientific perspective: researchers previously believed that animals could only keep a rhythm if they were able to mimic the sound vocally (which is why certain birds can “dance” to pop songs). “It may be that rhythmic ability is more widespread in the animal kingdom than previously thought,” says Peter Cook, one of the researchers who has been working with Ronan. Personally, I can’t wait for “So You Think You Can Dance: Animal Edition.” Ronan will be a tough act to follow. [YouTube via Huffington Post]
