We’ve already marveled at the travesty that is Nicki Minaj covering up her gorgeous face with that giant red hood with out even telling us what the hell it means (and nope, that performance doesn’t really explain it to us either). But she was hardly alone in wanting to make a statement at the Grammys. Fergie openly admitted to it, with her see-through orange “dress.” We also salute those ladies who know that the only way we’ll ask who they are is by showing up wearing machine guns or the hide of a freshly killed zebra. Also, we are still confused about the presence of people like Snooki and Rebecca Black. Not that we’re complaining, mind you. We had a whole lot of fun putting this one together.
Some might argue that Rebecca Black’s “Friday” video led to the biggest cyber-bullying frenzy in Internet history, but we guess there’s a big difference between mean YouTube comments, and your fellow eighth graders coming after you during study hall. TMZ reports that due to the notoriety of Rebecca’s jam, the singer had to be switched to homeschooling to escape non-stop teasing from her classmates. Despite the taunts, Rebecca still plans on pursuing her pop dreams. So if you had planned to drive her out of the music business all together, bullies, you have only hurt yourselves!
You’d think people would be satisfied by that genius Rebecca Black Katy Perry collabo the way the rest of America was, but apparently it just got to be too much. “When I walk by they’ll start singing ‘Friday’ in a really nasally voice,” Black told ABC news. “Or, you know, they’ll be like, ‘Oh hey, Rebecca, guess what day it is?'” As if Rebecca Black, of all the people on the planet, wouldn’t know what day it was, in addition to what day comes afterwaaaaaards. As if!
OMG! Kathy Beth Terry, you’re so lucky your parents are Corey Feldman and Debbie Gibson, or else you’d be in big trouble, young lady! HAH. Seriously though, Kathy’s alter-ego and all around ham Katy Perry‘s Last Friday Night (TGIF) video has us tripping! All the promotional activity Kathy-Katy did — the Kathy Beth Terry Twitter account and Facebook page — did not prepare us for the awesomeness of this video. It’s 80’s overload with the whole ‘ugly ducking morphing into the swan’ cliche included. But it’s the cameo’s that have us in splits. Apart from Corey and Debbie, the partystarter in the video is none other than …. Rebecca Black! Insert whatever “Friday” puns you’d like to here.
That’s not all, peeps. While Rebecca’s responsible for Kathy’s makeover in the video (she waxes her mustache off), cool Uncle Kenny a.k.a Kenny G and Hanson make an appearance too! And if that wasn’t enough, how about Glee‘s Kevin McHale as her dorky knight in shining armor? Darren Criss is in there too, as a frat-boy type. This song has summer hit written all over it. Watch the video and let us know what you think.
Sometimes it seems like the kids at McKinley High have to deal with so many obstacles on the path to adulthood: unplanned pregnancy, infidelity, Coach Sylvester throwing them up against the lockers.Ã‚Â If it turns out rumors are true aboutGlee covering Rebecca Black’s “Friday” in their upcoming prom episode, the New Directions will face the hardest decision of all: front seat versus back seat. Allegedly Kevin McHale, Chord Overstreet and Mark Salling will be the cast members explaining what day comes after…wards.Ã‚Â If we know Glee like we think we do, guaranteed the car they’re rocking out in will either flip over, or an attention-starved Rachel will cut off a school bus while singing the Patrice Wilson rap break. Maybe Mr. Schue can use the song to teach a lesson on Autotuning and driving. No, we’re just kidding. Mr. Schue doesn’t teach.
New rumors aboutGlee‘s Lady Gaga episode next Tuesday have also dropped today. It looks like the 90-minute mega episode focuses on football playing bully Dave Karofsky, as well as a new love interest for the Britney-loving Santana. We-we-we-so excited to have the Gleeks back after their break, we’re even going to overlook the fact that they’re giving even more attention to the worst song every performed.
