If I had any real interest in The Jonas Brothers I’m sure this video would be like ohmygodtotallyfunnyandhotandsexyandfunnyandstuff but seeing as I really am just aware of their existence I can see it for what it really is. A video to plug their new album. And it is pretty funny. But then it is the kind of thing that you can see happening at drunken parties everywhere, just no-one has the inclination to have it happen in some kind of studio and to add an effect or two. But the main thing is that drink would be involved. The Jo Bro’s dont get drunk do they? Hmmmm.
Over the Christmas week, everybody knew who would be taking number one in the UK Singles Chart, but what was happening state side? The closest thing they have to a singles chart is the Billboard Hot 100 Chart. So, lets take a look see at what the Top Ten looked like when Santy was coming down our chimneys:
1. Beyonce “Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)”
2. Lady Gaga featuring Colby O’Dennis “Just Dance”
3. T.I. featuring Rihanna “Live Your Life”
4. Kanye West “Heartless”
5. Katy Perry “Hot ‘N’ Cold”
6. Britney Spears “Womanizer”
7. Kanye West “Love Lockdown”
8. T.I. “Whatever You Like”
9. Beyonce “If I Were A Boy”
10. Britney Spears “Circus”
Just so’s we’re clear, only TWO artists in the above list didn’t have TWO songs in the top 10. I know the UK charts had the same song in the top ten twice, but this is getting ri-god damned-diculous! I’d almost feel bad for the two chicks who didn’t manage to land a second top ten, but then when you realise just how long ago Katy Perry (September 4th) and Lady GaGa (April 8th!!!) released those singles, that sympathetic emotion soon fucks off.
And just in case you’re thinking maybe the top that particular week is just a bad example, you’re wrong. A quick perusal through the top fifty shows Pink, Taylor Swift, Ludacris, Akon and Ne-Yo on it twice, Rihanna three times, T-Pain four times and Lil’ Wayne no less than SIX TIMES!
Its a sad state of affairs, I tells ya. And its only going to get worse; Timbaland’s Shock Value 2 is out on February 14th. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.
Yeah that’s right, there’s a hot new Latina on the scene so I think it’s time Nelly Furtado finally gave up. And maybe admit that she’s an irritating semi-talent, who would be spending her days working in the local supermarket and plucking her eyebrows to within an inch of their life were it not for the pity of Mr Career Saver himself, Timbaland. Ok maybe that particular confession won’t happen anytime soon.
Anyway, this clip appeared on youtube lately and is of a girl called Arianna shakin’ what her mama (only very recently) gave her to Beyonce “Single Ladies.”
