OK, Pop Culture guilty pleasure confession time–I kind of love Ke$sha’s new album. Love it or hate it, you’ve got to admit it’s filled with catchy pop songs. Of all the new albums that have come out in 2010 I’ve probably listened to Animal the most, even though it’s one of the few albums I haven’t actually bought yet. I’m kind of afraid that if I were to bring the CD up to the counter at Easy Street, Patrick will revoke my man card (or worse, my random 10% discounts!)
If you don’t still watch The Simpsons (Why not? It’s still funny!) you probably missed one of their best opening credit sequences ever. For the first time, I believe ever, they reanimated the whole opening credit sequence as if it were a music video to Ke$ha’s Tik Tok. It’s pretty clever and hilarious. Check it out:
Tik Tok Simpsons Intro
[BTW – I have no idea why everything is backwards in this video, but it’s the best quality version I could find on YouTube, so we’ll have to live with it. Get a mirror and hold it up to your computer if it’s bothering you, I guess.]
Just released this week was Ke$ha’s video for the first song on her album, Your Love Is My Drug. This is probably my favorite video of her’s so far (not including the Simpsons clip), what with its LSD-like, Yellow Submarine-esq, love-induced hallucinogenic trip in the middle of the desert. It’s kind of a cute and innocent little video. I like it.
