i do not hook up

Kelly HQ has the cover for Kelly Clarkson new single "I Do Not Hook Up" and while we won't get into what a stupid name for a song that is, we will be getting into the fact that someone over at RCA Records needs a Photoshop intervention. There's a sparkle overload going on a poor Kelly is a helpless victim.

The evidence:

On the lips guys, really? A little shine would have been sufficient.

I refuse to believe that these hooks are sparkling. That brass, or whatever the hell it is, is way too dull. Next time all or nothing guys, preferably nothing.

See, when it's that big it's just comical.

And now the word sparkle? That's it. Done. Whoever this guy's boss is, fire his ass. This sparkle shit has gone on long enough. Her next single cover is going to just be rainbow glitter glue sticked to the CD. That's not a world any of us want to live in.

New Flo Rida Single

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Have a soft spot for cheeseball 90's dance songs? Is Flo Rida your guilty pleasure? Then you'll probably love his new single "Sugar" featuring Wynter. Oh that's right with a y. It's a name, not a season y'all!

nelly furtado

Singer-songwriter Nelly Furtado is going indie. The "Promiscuous" singer has launched her own brad-new music label, Nelstar Music, in conjunction with a Canadian independent record company. She's even already signed her first act, dance band Fritz Helder & the Phantoms, whose debut album is expected in July.

Nelly told Billboard "I always secretly wanted to be an indie artist. When I was a teenager, I loved Ani DiFranco and hoped I could do something like that. A major turned out to be my destiny, but I'm enjoying reconnecting with the indie world."

Here's some Fritz Helder for you. If it's any indication of what Nelly's label is going to put out, it's pretty damn catchy.

Flo Rida's "Right Round"

| 183 Comments | No TrackBacks

Flo Rida, who coincidentally enough is from Florida (go figure) has just released the new music video for his single "Right Round". It samples "You Spin Me Round (Like a Record)" from 80's new wavers Dead or Alive. That's Ke$ha you hear singing the chorus, and yes, this song is about exactly what you think it's about.

Boring video, but it's a fun song to drive to. Enjoy.

Lady Soverign is wearing a very cute t-shirt that I wouldn't mind owning in her new music video for "So Human". She heavily, heavily samples The Cure's "Close To Me". The world's biggest Simon Gallup fan in me cringes in repulsion that such a classic is being butchered in this way, but then again, eh, it's kind of a little maybe a bit cute. I'll let it slide if she brings back the side ponytail.

Much, much better than "I Got You Dancing". And I mean it about that yellow and white shirt. Sov, call me!

Enjoy.

Last of the English Roses

Here is the official music video for Peter Doherty's "Last of the English Roses". I think he's kinda yucky, but understanding that other peeps do not (like my gross sister Liz) I post it for y'all. The things I do, sheesh.

Though, the last 15 seconds or so are pretty interesting...

Pete's new album will be in stores on March 16th.

Kid Cudi's "Day N Nite"

| 173 Comments | No TrackBacks

Kid Cudi's song "Day N Nite" has been out forever. I could swear I heard this shit in early 1998. So he finally got around to making an official music video for it, thank goodness, since everyone and their mother has seen the Crookers Remix video. This one is much better.

I would recommended against watching if you recently took any hallucinogens. Enjoy.

Happy Valentine's Day!

I'm just excited to see Fanny Pack in the video. They are totes fun, got to meet them last year. Pic after the jump.

lily allen

I literally cannot stop listening to this song. Lily Allen's "Fuck You" is my new anthem. It's on her new album "It's Not Me, It's you" which was released today. I want this for my ringtone, my alarm clock, my email alert, my voicemail, and I want it to play when I honk the horn on my car. Very, very much. Enjoy!
