Fifth Harmony cover ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’

fifth harmony

Maybe you’ve heard of Fifth Harmony, maybe you haven’t. They won the US version of The X Factor before it was canceled and released a single called ‘Boss’ earlier this year that was actually pretty good if you ignore the idiotic lyrics (“Boss/Michelle Obama/Purse so heavy/Gettin’ Oprah dollars”). Now they’re covering one of the most iconic Christmas songs of all time: Mariah Carey‘s ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’:

I want to like this version, I really do. I want to not want to be constantly distracted by Camila’s awkwardness (the one that looks like a bird). I want these girls to do well because America is not into girl bands and I do think they’re talented… but yeah, I dunno. This one doesn’t work for me.

Though it is arguably better than what happened at the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree lighting this week…

Gwen Stefani releases ‘Spark the Fire’ video

Gwen Stefani is getting back in the swing of things as far as her music career goes, and her first offering to the world in several years is this: ‘Spark the Fire‘, a semi-shitty rap/pop whatever-the-hell you’d call it that’s… not very good. I mean, even Fergie’s comeback single is better than this shit.

I love Gwen and think she’s absolutely divinely beautiful, but I feel like she probably needs to give the music a rest. Your mileage may vary, of course… I’ll let you decide for yourself:

The 5 Most Ridiculous Things Beyonce does in the ’7/11′ video

beyonce

It’s time Beyoncé came out with some new music, I guess, so she’s dropped the first single from her upcoming album. The song is called ’7/11′ and it already has a video. The “unique” concept behind it, I guess, comes from the fact that it’s all shot in home movie format – we’re meant to feel like we’ve got a sneak peak into how Beyonce lives because all of this was shot on the balconies or in the hallways of the penthouse suites she spends her life in. How do I feel about it? Eh…

It’s all downright ridiculous, really. While the entire clip is full of “WTF?” moments, the following 5 take the cake:

1. Beyonce, in a fit of laughter, sits on the bathroom floor and lifts her foot to her ear, pretending to use it as a telephone. Your foot cannot transmit or receive data.

2. Beyonce attempts to do that weird “dance” move where you hold your leg in front of you and then jump over it with the other leg. She fails.

3. Beyonce and friends crowd around a small pile of bills – the bills look to be small denominations and add up to probably no more than $100. Hardly ballin’ out.

4. Beyonce wears a blue sweatshirt that says “KALE” in large letters. Kale is gross.

5. Beyonce has a split second light saber fight with a fully masked/hooded villain who disappears as soon as he appears.

And that’s just to name a few.

The beat of the song is fantastic – whoever Beyonce has producing for her now is great – but I just don’t know what any of it means. I don’t think pop music (or any kind of art) has to mean something – it can certainly exist for itself without reference to anything else, but something is just… missing. Then again, I thought that about the self-titled album for about half a day and now I will lose my mind to it, so… there’s that. ‘

Taylor Swift goes psycho in ‘Blank Space’ video

Taylor Swift‘s 1989 is probably the best pop album of the year, maybe the past two years (at least). Seriously, it’s that good. I pretty much love every song on the album, save for Welcome to New York, but that’s just because I’ve lived there for 13 years and that doe-eyed naivité thing about it hasn’t been my bag for over a decade. But that’s neither here nor there! What’s important is that this album is FULL of hits, so she can ride on this one for a long while.

Her new single, ‘Blank Space’, is supposed to be an homage to the psycho alter-ego the press seems to report of her when she’s in a relationship/just ending a relationship. TayTay likes to have fun, so she played on that for the music video, which leaked a day early (oopsies!) and had been watched by a zillion people before anyone realised they weren’t supposed to have seen it yet. Ah, well.

I’m not a fan of music videos in general – I prefer to just listen to the damn song and I don’t need a visual to go along with it – but as these things go, this is a lot of fun and I ain’t mad at it, as they say. I mean, if brought us faces like these:

That can’t be a bad thing. What do you think of ‘Blank Space’ and the video?

Selena Gomez releases ‘The Heart Wants What It Wants’

selena gomez

LOL at the title of Selena Gomez‘s new single, ‘The Heart Wants What It Wants’. Obviously her heart has wanted a bit of Bieber action for the past few years. This is all pretty… uncomfortable and bizarre, since the track starts off with Selena seemingly making a confession about a relationship on how much she loved this guy but then he did something that completely shattered her. Then the guy turned things around on her and made her feel crazy.

This song is OBVIOUSLY about Bieber, and it’s kinda a shitty song, but it’s the only single from her upcoming Greatest Hits album, which she’s doing to finish her contract with Hollywood Records. The video was actually filmed in March and was just delayed; she’s working on a new album that will come out on Interscope next year, apparently.

Anyhoo… enjoy! Homegirl is dickmatized, as the kids say.
