Lily Allen Confronts Her Internet Trolls

"Keyboard Warrior That Can't Spell"

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 »

Exclusive: Kina Grannis Premieres “The Fire” Official Music Video

"The Fire" World Premiere

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.

Robin Thicke Tries To Woo Paula Patton Back With Self-Flagellating Video For “Get Her Back”

Robin Thicke Airs His Dirty Laundry

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]

Beyoncé Says Yes
  • Michelle Williams from Destiny’s Child has a new single out and it’s all about Jesus! Apparently she is super Christian and I had no idea. Anyway, both Beyoncé and Kelly Rowland appear on the gospel song and in the video above, although this isn’t being billed as a Destiny’s Child endeavor. Someone called in a favor to Bey, huh?

Meghan Trainor’s “All About That Base” Is The Body Positive Anthem Of The Summer — And It’s FUN!

"Every Inch Of You Is Perfect From The Bottom To The Top"

I love everything about Meghan Trainor’s song “All ABout That Bass”: it’s catchy, it’s body positive, and the retro outfits and set design are so adorable. I just want to jump inside the music video and shake my booty in a pastel A-line from ModCloth. And what’s not to love about a summer anthem about a woman who “ain’t no size 2″ but can “shake it, shake it, like I’m supposed to do?” Every inch of you is perfect from the bottom of the top!
