This Is What 28 Beyoncé Songs In 6 Minutes Sounds Like

A Cappella Beyonce

How could we have missed this? An a cappella group called Pentatonix (yes, people do a cappella outside of college) filmed a medley of 28 rapid-fire Beyoncé songs in only six minutes. All your favorites from the Bey ouevre make an appearance. “Say My Name”? Duh. “Survivor”? Check. “Single Ladies”? Yup. “Halo”? Obviously. Okay, some of these songs are from Destiny’s Child, but it still counts! The video was posted on YouTube in October, so it misses all the songs from Beyoncé’s latest album, BEYONCE. Maybe Pentatonix will do another one?  [YouTube]

Lea Michele Releases “Cannonball” Music Video

"I'll Fly, I'll Fly, Like A Canonball"

I generally find Lea Michele profoundly annoying. But you got to hand it to her: the girl can sing. Lea’s new song, “Cannonball” (from her solo album), is a total earworm. Even though she still belts out songs in her Broadway star voice, it works for her on this song like it wouldn’t for, say, Pink or Katy Perry. “Cannonball” has got a catchy hook and it’ll do really well in mashups. What do you think? [YouTube]

Listen To 56 Pop Songs In Just 10 Minutes

The Mashup Of All Mashups

2013 was a pretty memorable year for pop music, especially if you had lots of opinions on blurred lines and riding a wrecking ball naked. In case you need a recap of pop radio in 2013, musician Robin Skouteris made a mashup of this year’s top 56 songs and their videos. It exhaustively clocks in at just under 10 minutes! IMHO, the Katy Perry “Roar”/Taylor Swift “Trouble” part is the best. (Thanks, commenter LR52185!) [YouTube]

This Punk Rock Cover Of Rebecca Black’s “Saturday” Is Better Than The Original

Move Over, Rebecca!

A few weeks ago, I wished aloud for a sequel to Rebecca Black’s “Friday.” Apparently, the universe heard me loud and clear. Rebecca delivered with a sequel called, yes,”Saturday.” (Does this mean everything I ask for on the internet will now come true? In that case, I’d like the next winning lottery numbers please.) Now, a pop punk cover of “Saturday” performed by Patty Walters has surfaced on YouTube  and it’s even more fun than the original. Enjoy! Let’s cross our fingers for “Sunday” to be recorded in another two years.[YouTube]

Kate Nash Releases The Anti-Christmas Song We’ve All Been Waiting For, “I Hate You This Christmas”

"It's Christmas, You're F**king One Of My Friends"

Not every Christmas will be as magical as the ones when you still believed in Santa Claus. In fact, some of your adult Christmases are really going to suck. Kate Nash has the perfect Christmas song for everyone out there having a crappy holiday season: a new song called “I Hate You This Christmas” off her new EP, Have Faith With Kate Nash This Christmas. “I Hate You This Christmas” is about walking in on her boyfriend cheating with one of her friends and so she doesn’t have any holiday cheer. How true are these lyrics? “Everyone’s excited about going home / But I’m embarrassed to tell my mom / All the Christmas lights and mistletoe / Are only making me more alone.” Yup, been there. Someone get this girl an eggnog. [Twitter.com/KateNash]

"Chaotic" Was The Best!
23 GIFs That Prove "Britney & Kevin: Chaotic" Was One Of Britney Spears' Best Decisions
Please, Britney Spears' reality show was AWESOME. Read More »

A new Britney video is out! “Perfume” debuted today from Britney’s new album, Britney Jean, and it’s got her usual male model eye candy lying around shirtless. Thanks, Brit!  The singing itself is a little grating — Autotune, much? — but the song is pretty catchy … even if it will make you paranoid that your partner is cheating. [Huffington Post]

Ali Lohan Sings Christina Aguilera’s “Beautiful” And It’s Just OK

Another Singing Lohan

As we ponder whether Lindsay Lohan ordered a hit on Barron Hilton, you may be asking yourself, Hmm, what are the other Lohan children up to?  The fruitful womb of Dina Lohan spawned many other children, though none are quite as famous. Last time we saw Aliana Lohan, she was breaking into the modeling biz and maybe-getting plastic surgery. Turns out, she’s got a set of pipes on her, too. Here’s a bashful yet endearingly charming Ali singing a part from Christina Aguilera’s song “Beautiful.” She’s OK, no? [YouTube.com/AlianaLohan]

Watch Jack White Add A Folk Twist To A White Stripes Classic

Can The White Stripes Get Back Together Yet?

I am still not over the breakup of the White Stripes, so any little scrap I can get of their hits is a big deal to me. Here’s a touch of folk to brighten up your day: the lovely Showtime concert film “Another Day, Another Time.“ The concert was recorded this fall in New York City and brought together performers from the Coen brothers’ new film “Inside Llewyn Davis.” It will air on December 13 on Showtime and includes Marcus Mumford, Joan Baez, Gillian Welch, and Patti Smith. In the meantime, check out this clip of Jack White performing a folk version of his former band’s song “We’re Going to Be Friends.” [NYMag.com]

Rebecca Black Revisits “Friday” And It’s Still As Embarrassing As You Remember

Which Seat Can I Take?

Rebecca Black, the world’s favorite internet celebrity, has a special holiday gift for you. She’s filmed herself watching her famous “Friday” music video and her commentary is no holds barred. Surely we can all remember that video, which made her something of a household name and posed us with life-altering questions like “which seat can I take?” as she cruised around singing in a convertible. Rebecca’s ability to laugh at herself and two and a half years (and 61 million YouTube views) later is pretty admirable. I’m rooting for a “Friday” sequel. “Saturday,” anyone? [Gawker]

I Never Meant To Start A War

Chatroulette is still a thing. At least, it is for the infamous Chatroulette Guy who made one of the best viral videos the Internet has ever seen when he performed “Call Me Maybe” to unsuspecting folks on the video chat site. Now he’s back with his special take on Miley Cyrus’ fall hit “Wrecking Ball.”  He’s got a sledgehammer, zero shame, and seems to have an actual wrecking ball attached to his ceiling for authenticity.

You win the Internet for the second time, sir! Until we meet again … [YouTube]
