!! OMG, discuss: The Britney ‘Glee’ episode !!


Some friends and I were just revisiting the hard-dancing hotness of Britney Spears in the “Slave 4 U” video at a house party the other night, and so it was extra weird this Sunday to see Glee‘s Heather Morris taking us back to the days when you could pour water down the trough of Britney’s lower back. She put in a few incredible performances, one of which you can watch above.
Is Heather the break-out star of the season? Discuss it on the Glee Britney episode thread over at !! omg social club !! (free sign-up takes less than a minute).
Just for fun, watch the original “Slave 4 U” video after the jump.

!! OMG, the gayest song on Mark Ronson’s new album is also the best song on Mark Ronson’s new album !!

MarkRonsonRecordCollection.jpg
I’m sure fans of Q-Tip, D’Angelo, Ghostface Killah and Duran Duran will disagree with me on this one but “Somebody To Love Me”, featuring the vocal talents of Boy George, Miike Snow’s Andrew Wyatt and Cathy “California Gurls” Dennis, is clearly the best song on Record Collection, the new album by Mark Ronson & The Business Intl.
It officially came out yesterday but if you are an Internet-savvy Mark Ronson fan like me, you’ve probably been jamming to this wistful pop anthem for a while now. If not, check out this (slightly out-of-sync) video recording of Boy George performing the song live for an audience in Belfast below:

!! OMG, the impracticalities: Kylie’s ‘Get Outta My Way’ video !!


Usually ‘making of’ videos are a bit wank (as they say), but this 12-minute clip about the filming of Kylie Minogue’s ‘Get Outta My Way’ video is actually somewhat insightful. Not only do we learn about the German engineering that went into the real-time, interactive projections and the story behind the back-up dancers’ spray on tans, we get to watch Kylie get done up like a Christmas turkey and dangle precariously from the precipice of a giant cheese wedge.
Watch the finished video here.

!! OMG, photos: M.I.A. live in Toronto !!

MIALEAD.jpg
We know M.I.A. has the ability to send the media into a Twitter tizzy, but can she still ignite a fan frenzy? During a concert at Toronto’s Sound Academy last night the defiant pop star delivered on the latter with an energetic, 90-minute set spanning her three albums.
Backed by three niqab-clad back-up singers, two b-boys, one hype girl and a DJ — all draped in matching, YouTube-print pajamas — M.I.A. hit the crowd with a wall of industrial-strength beats in the form of “Illygirl”, “Worldtown” and “Steppin’ Up”, three songs indicative of the brash noise of her third album /\/\/\Y/\. Of course she also played the hits, including the first-ever live rendition of recent single “XXXO”. She saved “Paper Planes” and “Boyz” for the encore and invited all the girls on stage to dance along to the finale “10 Dollar”.
Controversy was in short supply, though M.I.A. does like to keep her audience on its toes. She shrugged off her poor record sales of late by telling the crowd, “I don’t give a f*ck if nobody buys my shit! That shit should be free!” Later, she told a fan that groped at her wedding ring to keep away from “my retirement fund”. All the while James, the best-dressed concert photographer in Toronto, battled the corporate media schlubs in the photo pit. Check out the pictures and the rest of M.I.A.’s fall tour dates after the jump!
