I always thought to myself, what is missing on my Christmas song playlist?
A filthy rap by three drag queens! WELL LOOKIE HERE! DWV are back with their 5th song and 1st original just in time for the holidays. Now the song came out I’m gonna about 7-10 days ago on itunes but the girls were on the drag race cruise so we didn’t get much info about it. And today they released the video for “That Christmas Song.”
Drag queen in reindeer outfits, stripped, twerking…sounds good to me!
My personal favorite line I wanna drink you babies and nibble your ass/like I’m at midnight mass/and you is the communion.
That’s fine. MARY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!
Before we get into the meat of the video, can we discuss the slab of juicy prime beef Britney Spears cozies up to? Yowzers. I think I might have to revisit my 2011 post on Brit’s Top 10 Hottest Music Boy Toys. Model Alexander Kjellevik is pretty dang fine. The scruff, the hair, the abs, it all works. It must’ve been hard work laying that blond head of hers on his ripped stomach. I digress.
Directed by frequent collaborator Joseph Khan, “Perfume” can easily pass as a fragrance ad for one of Spears’ many scents. Girlfriend spritzes herself in hopes that Kjellevik’s girlfriend, Cindy, smells it. I suppose she didn’t mark her territory enough because in the end, poor Brit is left alone. I haven’t seen her act this much since her acting tour de force in the 2002 opus, Crossroads ;) Overall it’s a great clip (albeit simple) for the underrated ballad. Check it out below.
I’m calling it now. 2014 is going to be Lea Michele’s year. I was preparing myself not to like her debut single, but after previewing it, I’m already sold. The Glee actress uploaded a healthy snippet of her upcoming powerful ballad “Cannonball.” UPDATE: JustJaredJr.com just uploaded the full version. Check it out below.
Penned by Sia, it’s everything you’d expect from the diva-in-training. It’s part Barbra, part Celine and one hundred percent perfection. Check it out below, along with the tracklist for her debut album, Louder. Doesn’t she look sensational in the cover art above? Be sure to weigh in about the single, album cover and all things Lea-related below.
Are original new Yuletide tracks from Kelly Clarkson, Leona Lewis or Ariana Grande not doing the trick? Perhaps, this holiday anthem by Jordin Sparks will get you in the Christmas spirit.
Inspired by the best feelings of the holidays, “This is My Wish” is a simple, joyful reminder that peace is the greatest gift of all. The American Idol Season 6 winner is joined by The Young People’s Chorus of New York City on the track. To honor the occasion, Glade is donating $150,000 to Toys for Tots. If you like the joyous single, you can download it for free.
Despite all the headlines and chart success, Miley Cyrus received no Grammy nominations. I guess all her antics scared off Academy voters. Here’s a small consolation prize for being snubbed.
VEVO recently released their annual list ranking the ten most played music videos of the year. In no shocker, Cyrus’ “Wrecking Ball” topped the list. After all, the clip generated 19.3 million views on its first day of release and was the fastest to be certified in VEVO’s history by reaching 100 million views within just six days. As of December 1, the much-spoofed clip stood tall with over 371 million views worldwide. Last year’s winner, “Call Me Maybe” by Carly Rae Jepsen notched 357 million clicks in 2012.
The most interesting part of the list is how a couple of leftovers from last year made the list. Both Rihanna’s “Diamonds” and will.i.am’s collabo with Britney landed in the Top 10. On the flip side, Katy Perry breaking the Top 5 is equally as impressive, given that “Roar” only premiered just in August. Check out below what other clips were extremely popular in 2013.
Two years after “Friday” became an internet sensation, Rebecca Black finally releases a sequel. Naturally, it’s titled “Saturday.” Will it reach the legendary status of its predecessor which generated over 60 million views in 2011? Probably not, but with some shade thrown at Miley Cyrus and ‘ingenious’ lyrics like “Yesterday was Friday. Today is Saturday,” it’s a valiant effort.
Check out the clip below which features Dave Days. I also included a recent clip of Black re-watching “Friday.” Her play-by-play commentary and reactions to the video that changed her life are kinda hilarious.
“Grown Woman” first surfaced in Beyonce’s Pepsi commercial back in April. Eight months later, a snippet for the amazing cut has finally surfaced. Whether the footage was part of a scrapped music video or simply unused background visuals meant for her Mrs. Carter World Tour, only B actually knows. The uptempo gem definitely deserved better than the treatment it received.
I probably shouldn’t hold my breath for an official release of the single. During her recent gig in my hood, Bey never performed “Grown Woman” nor “Standing In The Sun.” #hugeletdown. Oh well, at least there’s this.
On a side note, Beyonce should really consider ditching her blond tresses for awhile. She looks stunning in dark straight hair. Check out the clip below which features cameos from Mama Knowles and Kelly Rowland. Poor Michelle Williams. Not invited to the party once again.
With just weeks before her heralded Las Vegas residency begins, Britney Spears made her official arrival at Planet Hollywood earlier this week. It wasn’t as extravagant as Shania Twain arriving on a horse, but there was plenty of fan fare. Lights, cameras, paparazzi, fans, you name it, it was there.
Naturally, the 32-year-old singer is in promotional overdrive to move ticket sales and also copies of her just-released album Britney Jean. She even hinted that she might retire after her two-year residency. Yeah, right. I smell that marketing ploy a mile away ;)
In other Brit-related news, she appears on InStyle magazine’s January cover looking quite lovely wearing a Dior couture gown. Photographer Michelangelo Di Battista snaps the singer for her most “candid interview ever.” Knowing how verbose Brit is, I wonder what classifies as “candid” for the publication. Right?
Spears also released a teaser for her latest single “Perfume.” It uses the official lyric video as the background with footage of the video itself incorporated in. Check it out below.
