Let’s keep this one short and sweet since I’m already a week behind. SORRY, EVERYONE WHO READS THIS. Here are my favorite things from last month:
Even though Mac Miller is on it, “The Way” practically became my favorite song the first time I heard it. Not only is the Mariah Carey-influenced jam totally designed for summertime, but Grande seemingly came out of nowhere with this debut single, and then just totally smashed everyone with it. Love of my life Demi Lovato even endorses her! Girl can SING.
Check out this video (below) of her doing impressions, including Britney Spears and Shakira. Nuts. AND – get this – this clip was posted in 2010. As in, it took everyone over three years to even notice that this girl is cray-talented.
4. The Catholic League calls David Bowie a “senior citizen”
Full quote: “The switch-hitting, bisexual, senior citizen from London has resurfaced…”
I can’t be the only one who finds this combination of words hilarious.
3. Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories
Definitely a highlight of this month (it dropped May 17), the album has potential to leave a serious impression on 2013 year-end album lists…
2. Ke$ha: My Crazy Beautiful Life
The 6-episode series (which admittedly premiered at the end of April) follows Ke$ha around on tour for two years, packing all the urine-drinking craziness into little half-hour spots each week (yes, that screen grab is what you think it is.) It was actually filmed by her brother, Lagan, and honestly, truly, really shows the singer in a relatable light through the ups and downs of proving herself to the music industry (and the world!!!!) Pop stars are obviously just like you and me (…she said as she watched Ke$ha do things like hang out with Steven Tyler and walk around Hollywood in a red velvet suit.)
1. Yeezus revealed!
Yeezus is soon to be upon us! In celebration, I may be doing a “Countdown to Yeezus” honoring Mr. West himself, but I’m not 100% sure if I want to feed his ego even more than the world already is by accepting an album titled “Yeezus” in the first place…
Guess I’ll mull over that one for a couple days.
