I liked Lily Allen’s song “URL Badman” to begin with, but I love it now that there’s commenters up on YouTube screaming “misandry” over the new music video. (Of course plenty of women hate on other women online and I have experienced that firsthand myself. But generally, my experience with trolls — you know, like the time a bunch of them emailed me with answers to my post “18 Sincere Questions I Would Like To Ask Internet Trolls” — they have all been dudes.) Anyway, this song is totally on point, Lily!
I guess at some point The Frisky should start ignoring Robin Thicke and his cries for attention. But right now we’re still caught in the vicious What, really? REALLY?!? cycle. Today, Thicke released a new music video from Paula, his album about estranged wife Paula Patton, for a song called “Still Madly Crazy.” The melancholy song itself is meh, but the music video has a group of cute kids reenacting a wedding. Possibly Paula and Robin’s wedding, as the little groom is a white boy and the little bride is a Black girl. Anyway, it’s seriously the cutest music video … but dudebro really needs to stop it already. All the public pressure Thicke is putting on his estranged wife to take him back is just dickish at this point. [YouTube] Keep reading »
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 »
