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.
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.
Rihanna channels everybody from Alex in “A Clockwork Orange” to a cane-toting pimp in her new video, “You Da One,” which is all done in black and white. The song is epically meh — her vocal inflections remind of stuff Gwen Stefani was doing 10 years ago. But at least the outfits are cool. What do you think? Keep reading »
Do you love hip hop? And you think gays, lesbians and transgender folks are, you know, actual people? Then you have to check out the music video for “Imma Homo,” a rap song by a group of MCs under the record label Rainbow Noise. (The audio is NSFW; use headphones.) The rappers run the gamut from ultra-femmey lesbians to ultra-butch dykes and everything in between; their lyrics proudly declare “Imma homo” with lines about “my lezzie peeps,” and watching Logo (the gay channel).
When would you hear that coming out of Diddy Dirty Money’s mouth? Keep reading »
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 »
Sometimes there’s no point in being coy — you just have to come out and say what you want. In the case of be-wigged singer Majela she’s looking for a man with a beard to “tickle my vagina.” And also: “come have sex with my vagina.” Well, OK then. We’ll get right on that. Also, is she related to The Queen of the Lesbians? [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »
Campaign songs have caused more of a ruckus in this presidential race than teenage pregnancy and extra-marital affairs combined. It all started with a John scandal, when John McCain stole “Our Country” by John Cougar Mellencamp from John Edwards after he got axed in the primaries. Then, Mellencamp told McCain to stop using the track, because the liberal musician didn’t want his tune affiliated with the Republican candidate. After that, hippie balladeer Jackson Browne sued McCain’s campaign to protest the use of his “Running On Empty” in an attack ad against Barack Obama. So, we here at the Frisky decided to put together a voting day soundtrack that everyone can groove to. We might have some differences on our ballots, but our booties bump to the same beats. After the jump, The Frisky’s Election Day Mixtape. Keep reading »
