I’ve seen some great impersonations in my day, but this guy… THIS GUY is the real deal. Not only has he come up with an awesome, catchy original song, but he manages to impersonate 29 celebs with almost perfect accuracy. From Sir Ian McKellan to Bono, Rob Cantor, who just released his debut solo album, is on point when it comes to his impression game. I’m afraid he might actually sound more like Shakira than the real Shakira, if that’s even possible. (I know it’s not, but he’s that good). Check it out for yourself and find some inspiration for your next karaoke night.
This performance by newlywed Sean Rajaee and his groomsmen is pretty much my favorite wedding video of all time and I cannot stop watching it on repeat. Rajaee secretly choreographed the dance as a surprise for his bride, and lots of the groomsmen lived out of town and had to learn the routine via video at the last second. The group goes through Beyonce, Bruno Mars and even a Persian dance, but it’s Rajaee’s rendition of the “I Want It That Way” that convinces me that this bride chose a total winner as a husband. I mean, look at those moves!
If you don’t know who Kina Grannis is, you’ve been missing out. Kina just released her sophomore studio album, Elements, which earned her the #2 spot on iTunes Singer Songwriter Chart (and happens to be a favorite here at The Frisky). Elements, the follow-up to her debut album Stairwells, takes a bold step forward with a more mature sound and deals with weighty topics like loss and impermanence. Oh, and we LOVE it.
“The Fire,” Kina’s first single from Elements, has a sound that’s been compared to that of Sara Bareilles and a stripped-down Florence + the Machine, and is quickly taking over the airways. As huge fans of Kina’s, The Frisky is THRILLED to debut her official music video for “The Fire”! Watch the video above and join us in absolutely loving her. To buy Kina’s new album, check out Elements on iTunes.
In case you haven’t noticed, Robin Thicke has no interest in being coy about his separation with Paula Patton after 10 years of marriage. His upcoming album “Paula” drops on July 1st with songs like “Get Her Back,” “Forever Love,” and “Too Little Too Late.” Just in case the tour (which we’re assuming is just Thicke pulling a Say Anything) doesn’t send a loud enough message to Ms. Patton, maybe these B-Sides will do the trick: Keep reading »
Robin Thicke sure is sorry he was photographed groping that girl’s butt. And he’s very sorry that he and Miley Cyrus humped each other onstage at the VMAs. But even after he and his wife of 10 years Paula Patton released a statement in February saying “we have mutually decided to separate at this time,” Thicke is laying it on, well, thick to get her back. And “Get Her Back” just so happens to be the first video Thicke has released from his upcoming album, called Paula, featuring a track list of songs that mostly appear to be about Patton.
Some might call his desperateion stalker-ish and obsessive. I, personally, think it brings to mind Justin Bieber-level, “Grand Sweeping Gestures Will Prove I’m Not A Douchecanoe,” of relationship maturity. In any case, if the “Paula” text messages in this video are remotely accurate, she doesn’t seem too ready to hop on this crazy train again. [YouTube]
Hip-hop is probably my favorite genre of music, but goddamn, sometimes the lyrics can go and ruin a perfectly great song. Such is the case with T.I.’s collaboration with Iggy Azalea, “No Mediocre,” which musically is cool and catchy and would be super fun to dance to — if not for the lyrics being painfully sexist from start to finish. The song is all about how T.I. doesn’t want to get with any women he deems “mediocre,” specifically women who don’t do their hair, have “bush” (“I should see nothing but pussy when I look down there”), wear tennis shoes instead of heels, and don’t have pretty faces and a “fat ass.” In other words, the song is about how mediocre and unworthy the vast majority of women in the world are, according to T.I.
