The other day, my mom emailed me an article about how Iggy Azalea’s career is over and how she’s racist and homophobic, blah, blah, blah. My mom was concerned, because I love Iggy (I wrote a blog about it). The article made me laugh a little bit, then I thought of this Beyoncé video. The song is pretty self explanatory. The video is INCREDIBLE and one of my favorites of all time. It features Baby Beyoncé, Beauty Queen Yoncé, and even Amazon Yoncé. I could, and do, watch it all day.
Point is, everyone is a critic. Iggy is a racist, Miley is a whore, Meghan Trainor is ruining America. Haters gonna hate. Meanwhile, these bitches be like…
AAAND she’s back. I honest to god did not see this coming. Touché, Miss. J. I think this song is so fun, so catchy, and a legitimate follow-up to “Call Me Maybe.” Even Biebs makes an appearance in this one. Oh yeah, and then there’s Tom Hanks.
God bless Mark Ronson for many reasons. One of which is bringing Mystikal back. I bet you didn’t realize how much you missed Mystikal. I think this song is pretty perfect. It’s been overshadowed by “Uptown Funk” and yet they still made this phenomenal music video. My jaw was to the floor the whole time.
Recently, I discovered that I love Ariana Grande’s latest single “One Last Time” and it was my favorite song for like TWO WEEKS. It’s my favorite song of hers, by far. There’s no obnoxious falsetto, it’s a beautiful song, and catchy as hell. Today, as Jimmy and I were having a music video binge, I decided to watch the video for this song. How exciting! Nope. Turns out instead of making a beautiful video to match a heartbreaking song, she chooses to make a pretty awful Cloverfield fan film. I feel this is a huge miss. Lame.
I am an OG Hilary Duff fan. Lizzie Maguire was my jam when I was twelve. My friends and I were the oldest group by far to see the Lizzie Maguire Movie in the theater – we were 16 – and were likely the only ones waiting the WHOLE movie for LIzzie and Gordo to kiss already. H. Duff and I are the same age, almost exactly, which makes her my spirit celeb (I just made that up). Duff followed in the steps of my other loves, the Olsen Twins, and created a tiny empire for herself. She inspired Selena, Vanessa, and other disney kids to break-out. Anywho, not sure if you’re all aware, but she’s back in the world of TV and music and girl looks GOOD. Her music is usually middle of the road, but she just released a single written by Tove Lo – smart move Duff, because it’s one of her best. I think she’s beautiful, adorable, and I’m stoked for her to be kicking ass again. Get it, girl.
This video needs no explaining. I love the shit out of this song. It’s the most fun thing ever. I have not been exposed to much Mark Ronson, but brother, I’m all in. Also, pay attention to the editing of this video because it is top-notch. Jimmy and I are constantly pulling our hair out over music video directors who DON’T CUT ON THE BEAT! This editor knows whats up, and he did a wonderful job. These guys are super ridiculous nerds, but they pull it off and it’s so great. There’s nothing like a good Uptown Funk dance party.
This video was an emotional ROLLERCOASTER for me. First off, I love the “Chandelier” video. If you haven’t seen that one, I recommend making this a double feature. It makes me sad that Sia was pressured into apologizing for offending people who found Shia LaBeouf’s character to be a pedophile. It’s sad to apologize to people for being dumbasses. Anywho, the point is, I think Sia is a talented lady who makes beautiful art. Also, I’m a lifer in the Shia LaBeouf Fan Club. I think he is a phenomenal talent and I hope he gets to prove it more in the future. I think they both should be damn proud of their performance because it makes me cry every time.
Jimmy and I are long-time Selena Gomez Fans. This SONG. The fact that I love it even though it’s clearly about Justin Bieber, goes to show how good the song is. I mean, if I were in a rocky relationship, this would be my JAM. Also, may I say that while I usually really hate this new trend of doing a dialogue breakdown or intro in the song, Selena Gomez rocked that shit. Know why? Because she’s actually a really good actress. And gurl knows how to cry.
