Khaya Mthethwa sings an acoustic version of Nicki Minaj’s “Super Bass” on South Africa’s version of American Idol.
I like this version better than the original.
No Doubt says they got the ok from “Native American friends and Native American studies experts” before making this video.
The video is laughably bad, but the Youtube comments… *tears*
This cannot be a real thing.
I’d forgotten how hilariously random this guy is…
Have you heard Randy Newman’s latest release, “I’m Dreaming of a White President”?
Here’s what he has to say about it:
I’m not sure about a trend, but for me it’s a reaction to the Republican Party, which seems to have drifted farther to the right than a major party has drifted in my lifetime in any direction. It seems to have become almost a radical party. The hate and… I don’t think it’ll last. That kind of thing doesn’t seem to last.
I have some concern that kids will hear this and think, “What is he talking about?” If you have a kid and you try irony out on them, they don’t get it at 7, 8 years old. “What do you mean, you’re dreaming of a white president?” It’s a problem. You can’t really hide the Internet from kids. It worries me some particularly because I’ve done Disney and Pixar stuff. In Toy Story, there’s my voice saying, “You’ve Got a Friend in Me.” And then here’s my voice singing that I want “A real live white man / Who knows the score.” I’d like it to be clearer which side I’m on. Of course, it comes a little late.
Best application of this song yet.
Ok, I like this “Gangnam Style” song so much more now. Props to Britney for keeping it classy and corny, as Psy has decreed.
I’d seen Sophia Grace before, but how did I ever miss the time that she actually got to meet her hero?
Have you seen the video for Nicki Minaj’s “Pound The Alarm”? (No? Where’ve you been?!?)
I’d tag The Honourable Ambassador to show her how Ms. “Minjai” does it if she hadn’t deleted her Twitter account…
“Let Me Love You”
(I can never resist a Ne-Yo video, especially one where he’s shirtless and performing MJ moves :)
Dude just killed this recreation of Beyonce’s “Countdown”. Even in a Snuggie. The lady herself says that he may have done it better than B.
Have you seen the behind-the-scenes clip for Nicki Minaj’s ”Pound The Alarm” video shoot?
Personally, I’m more interested in the coverage, which is hilariously foreign. The Daily Mail’s my fav for priceless quotes like these:
On the red, black and white colors of Nicki’s Carnival costume:
“The 29-year-old adopted a full costume displaying traditional colours that are often worn at the world famous Trinidad and Tobago Carnival.”
(Nope, but nice try.)
On our Carnival trucks and the phenomenon itself:
Nicki was driven around the streets on the back of a lorry with music blasting from huge speakers just like a real carnival procession.
(I will henceforth refer to them as “Carnival Lorries” and the “Carnival Procession”)
On the Carnival costume itself:
She was dressed as flamboyantly as ever in a a pair of fishnet tights with high-waisted black pants and some well placed jewellery to cover her modesty along with a tiny gold bikini.
The Young Money Cash Money star was also wearing a huge flume of feathers as she paraded herself in her mostly red attire.
(Umm… that’s the costume…)
(“cover her modesty”?!? ROFL!)
YBF had also gotten in on the delightfully unfamiliar act, before commenters pointed out the following:
They’ve since made the (unacknowledged) corrections.
Would it surprise you to know that a law professor has analyzed the second verse of 99 Problems, line by line?
What about if I told you that it’s actually a pretty interesting read?
Long story short: The police don’t actually need a warrant to search your trunk in the U.S.
I managed to resist watching every single “Call Me Maybe” parody … right up until Cookie Monster made one.
Guess what’s going to be my next ringtone.
