!! OMG, Erykah Badu takes it all off in “Window Seat” video !!


The official video for Erykah Badu‘s new single “Window Seat” came out on Saturday and it’s sparked a lot of chatter on Twitter and in the press. Inspired by this Matt & Kim video, Badu shot it in a single-take, guerilla-style in Dallas’ Dealey Plaza, the site of President John F. Kennedy’s assassination. “Window Seat” opens with Erykah pulling up in a 1965 Lincoln Continental as a radio broadcast from 1963 describes the final moments leading up to the assassination. She then gets out of the car and walks toward Elm St. and the book depository, removes all of her clothes and collapses next to the grassy knoll.
Following the premiere, Badu led a discussion on her Twitter feed about the concept of groupthink and how individual expression can lead to character assassination – especially relevant these days as the word ‘groupthink’ has figured into many a news article about the healthcare debate in the United States. As a blog that encourages both nudity and inspired social discussion, we highly recommend “Window Seat”.

!! OMG, a Q&A with Alison Goldfrapp !!

gf_headfirst1000.jpg
Earlier this week, British pop duo Goldfrapp released a new album called Head First, their fifth in 10 years. If you’ve been following the career of Alison Goldfrapp and Will Gregory for that long, you’ll know that they have a tendency to shift musical gears with each new release.

Goldfrapp describes the album’s nine songs, which took six months to write and produce, as unabashedly optimistic and upbeat. Indeed, Head First is a shimmering, euphoric take on ’80s stadium pop, with big choruses, propulsive beats and dreamy, disco-influenced piano and string arrangements.

A few weeks ago, we rang up Alison Goldfrapp in London to chat about the positive vibes she’s sending off these days, her love of Olivia Newton-John, Prince and Chrissie Hynde, the unusual amount of press attention her personal life has received lately, and her experience songwriting with Christina Aguilera.

!! OMG, Stop calling! !!


The general consensus seems to be that despite the ciggie sunglasses and telephone hats, Lady Gaga‘s TELEPHONE video (ft. BeyoncĂ©!) was kind of a flop.
Well, you knew the parody video was coming. Is it any better than the original? I can’t care enough to decide anymore! Sorry!

!! OMG, music video round-up: Peaches does Dorothy, Finland does Gaga, The Temper Trap get cute, Estelle & Kardi reunite !!


The first item in this week’s round-up of must-see music videos comes from mustachioed Ssion mastermind Cody Critcheloe. It’s a revisionist take on The Wizard of Oz for Peaches and it co-stars former Yo Majesty emcee Shunda K. If you are a female rap aficionado and a close personal friend of Dorothy, then this is the moment you have been waiting for.

The handful of programmers that still air music videos on television should pull the original “Bad Romance” video out of rotation and replace it with this epic performance from the Finnish TV show Battle of the Choirs. (Via Popjustice)
