I rarely post songs, but this one has been an earworm forever, so I just had to share it in the blog… for my records 🙂
Plus the fashion in the video is so trashy and wonderful that I just wish I could wear a denim short skirt ensemble with tigh-high socks and sneakers. Too bad Sofia is not the place for trash fash and Jeremy Scott Spring 2012 would not be appreciated in the right way. 🙂
The video is cool! I am a big fan of music videos from real life settings travel, concerts, fan meet-ups… It just seems so real and makes the “stars” from the glossy videos a bit more reachable and human. And of course in this video we can see all the different hairstyles the blogosphere has been writing about, as well as the high-waisted hot pants. Hot or not?
However on a first listen, there was something that bothered me in the song. The “Yeah Yeah” part after each verse was very familiar, and I realized with the help of google that it is Avril Lavigne’s song ‘”I’m with You”. Check out Avriln’s video after 2:21. So my most normal question is – is it ripped off or is it a collaboration? I’m pretty sure Avril is in Rihanna’s video, above, but hell… if you put a key phrase from someone else’s song, quote them in the title! It’s not that hard!
I shared my fascination with Schmohoyo geniuses and the Bed Intruder song in a previous post. And you can imagine how surprised I was, and for long when I could not close my mouth when I was that Antoine Dodson and Schmohoyo performed during the BET Hip Hop Awards last night. See the performance bellow:
It is simply amazing how social media works in creation of fame and fortune, and how from being a funny guy on YouTube a person can transform to a worldwide sensation.
