Who is Rebecca Black?

Unless you are under an internet rock, you’ve at least heard mention of Rebecca Black. She is the new Justin Beiber you could say. If you haven’t heard of her at all then first check out her music video for her single Friday.

But in reality who is she and where did she come from? How did she get the opportunity to produce and record this song?

Rebecca Black is a 13 year old singer from Anaheim California. So that means that 13 she has already had more Youtube hits than you ever will. The key thing to know is that she has been trying to break into the entertainment industry for years. She’s gone to dancing school, tried out for multiple Disney type shows and never really quite made it.

So how did she break through? Her mom paid a company called Ark Music Factory to write two songs for her and produce a music video. Working with the vanity publishing company, Rebecca recorded, auto-tuned and produced the song and video. Once the video hit YouTube it went viral. I still have no explanation as to how a video goes viral but it did. Now she has been on Leno and TMZ and all the other major media pop sections.

Will Rebecca stick around and make new songs? Who knows, but I’m sure she and Ark Music Factory are reaping in some benefits of the new found success. You can buy her single form iTunes, and ring tones and the like.

My thoughts on this whole thing. She found a niche and she hit it on the nail and she was successful at it. Maybe it wasn’t the type of breakthrough that she wanted, but now everyone knows her name and have heard her song. She has gotten farther than some people do in an entire life time and for that she should be proud.

Pictures of Yo-Landi Vi$$er

I was trolling around the interwebs and found some pics of Yo-Landi Vi$$er from South Africa’s Die Antwoord. If you haven’t heard their music yet you should check it out. Enjoy the pics.

Tik Tok by Ke$ha

There is one song that I can’t get out of my head and that is Tik Tok by Ke$ha. It is laced with so much teen pop goodness that it is so bad that it’s good. Every time the song comes on the radio my first instinct is to change it, but then all of a sudden I’m grooving to the beat. I saw the video and it was nothing at all like I expected. I thought it would be more rap video-ish (dancing and half naked girls) and less house party video, but I was wrong. Check it out below:

Ke$ha, whose real name is Kesha Rose Sebert, has been making music since 2005. She has a lot more then this first song. She sang backup on Paris Hilton’s song “Nothing in the World” and Britney Spear’s song “Lace and Leather”. She also broke in to Prince’s house in order to give him the her demo tape. That is a little crazy, but I mean look at those eyes. Those are some crazy eyes.

Anyway check out her songs, they are worth putting on your going out Friday night party mix.

Die Antwoord and Zef culture.

In the last couple of days the internet has been buzzing about the rap group Die Antwoord (The Answer) that is based out of Cape Town South Africa. The group consists of Ninja,  Yo-Landi Vi$$er and DJ Hi-Tek.

The make this awesome mix of rave/rap that represents Zef culture. Zef from what I understand if Afrikaans slang that I think would be best akin to “Redneck” or redneck pride. You have to check out these videos:

Check out more songs and pics at Die Antwoord’s webset.

Lady Gaga Camel Toe

Did you have any doubts about Lady Gaga’s sexuality? Did you think that she was a man? Well this photo should remove all doubts. I don’t think that you could hide a member in all that camel toe.

Duece Poppi – My White Friends ( Directors Cut )

Have you heard this new song by Duece Poppi called My White Friends? Talk about so many white people stereotypes being exploited. The thing that bugs me though is that I swear some of his “white friends” look pretty Hispanic to me. Saying Hispanic people are white is just not cool.

DVNO by Justice

A few weeks ago I was flipping channels and I came across this music video. It was playing on Mun2, which I still get for some reason even though I downgraded to the cheap-o cable.

Either way it was awsome. DVNO by Justice has become my new groove song. It is part of the Cross album which has another single called D.A.N.C.E. D.A.N.C.E. is good too, in fact the whole Cross Album is alright, but DVNO is for sure my favorite song on the album.
