!! OMG, Robyn unveils ‘Dancing On My Own’ vid, plots tour with Kelis !!


Swedish pop star Robyn is throwing the marketing rule book out the hotel window by releasing three albums this year. The first, Body Talk Pt. 1, is due out on June 15 and will be preceded by the industrial pop single “Dancing On My Own” on June 1. As the title suggests, it’s a song about being sad on the dance floor and the official video, released mere hours ago, features Robyn dancing up a storm and pretending to make out with herself. There are also a few shots toward the end of cute boys making out (with each other).
According to the official press material, “Dancing On My Own” is inspired by Robyn’s love for “inherently sad, gay disco anthems” such as Ultravox’s “Dancing With Tears in My Eyes”. “It’s the contrast between dancing, which is such a happy form of expression, and feeling heartbroken,” she says. “I think those songs get to people because heartbreak is such a lonely feeling but you can share that sadness so easily with the right song.”
Robyn and Kelis also announced their intention to tour North America together this summer via an obviously contrived but cute Twitter exchange. Details have yet to be announced. Check out the making of the “Dancing On My Own” video after the jump.

!! OMG, That’s Arizona: Mischievous cat takes up green card theft !!


Kute or kriminal?! Well, both! A thieving cat from Racistzona has taken its larceny to the next level. Previously satisfied with sneaking out in the middle of the night to pilfer various socks and trinkets, this kitty has recently taken to stealing the only thing of real value to the people of John McCain’s Mexican-hating state: GREEN CARDS!

!! OMG, Put It away: Marc Jacobs strips down for perfume ad !!

You know, this isn’t something we usually say here on OMG Blog, but put some clothes on, Marc Jacobs. The designer’s recent transformation into a lobotomized, greased-up glitter queen has been so depressing to watch. Now he’s decided to go nude in the ads for his own perfume.
I’m always fantasizing about taking up healthy eating and yoga and gym-going and getting a perfect body, but if this is what you become then maybe I’ll just stay flabby.

!! OMG, Give yourself Carrie-hair with the Sex and the City hairitizer !!

Like many of you, I spend my nights dreaming of a world in which I am as glamorous, rich, and wealthy as Carrie Bradshaw! We already have a lot in common, after all: we’re both writers, we both love live in New York, and we both love to wear giant fake flowers on our persons. One sad difference, however is that I will never possess Ms. Bradshaw’s beautiful mane of honeyed tresses.
Ooops! Never say never! InStyle now has a nifty little program in which you can do yourself up with any of the Sex and the City gals’ signature locks. Feeling more like a slutty Samantha? Demure Charlotte? Even frumpy old Miranda? DONE!
You can even choose to adopt the girls’ retro hairstyles from the freewheeling 1980s– which is ultimately the coif I chose for the above picture.
How do I look? I’m thinking: ZA ZA ZU!
