Don’t Mind Me, I’m Just Crying Over How Much I Love Taylor Swift

Ummmmm, is there anything conceivably more awesome than Taylor Swift hanging out of a cab singing this version of West Side Story’s “Tonight” as a teaser for the VMA Awards? I think not. MTV hit it out of the ballpark with this one.

There’s a matching — although less phenomenally amazing — teaser featuring Cobra Starship (nice to see them getting some much-deserved attention) and Leighton Meester:

This is all a great start to the awards show. In general, though, everyone’s just going to have to work really, really hard to compensate for the fact that, through forces of nature I will never understand, Russell Brand is being allowed to host again this year. Whatever. Better than Dane Cook, anyway.

Leighton Meester/Cobra Starship Video: “Good Girls Go Bad”

There is a long list of people who ought to be penning thank-you notes to Michael Jackson’s estate right now. These people include Senator John Ensign, Governor Mark Sanford, and Leighton Meester. With the media insanity surrounding MJ’s death, the cheating scandals of Ensign and Sanford have disappeared from view like a political penis into an intern’s hoo-hah, and we’ve now forgotten entirely about Leighton Meester’s little foot-job sex tape.

Luckily for Leighton, she’s got a chance to be back in the spotlight for something other than her fancy footwork — her latest track with Cobra Starship, “Good Girls Go Bad,” is poised to be one of the hottest songs of the summer. I told you guys about this song back in May, when it had first hit the Internet, and it’s starting to get widespread radio play and gain popularity now. I LOVE this track. I just can’t get enough of it. The video was just released — enjoy!
