Can we go back to 19eightywhatever when black men could dance around in videos and still be the leading man? I’m over mean-muggin. Pebbles Perri Holyghost Reid was not about to let some scowling, saggypantsed thug into her Mercedes. She was not about that Angry Rapper Life. Give her a Pretty Boy With an S-Curl Who Studied Modern Dance so they can go shopping and get their hair did together. I ain’t mad atcha, Ms. Pebbles.
A lot of female pop stars have released music videos this month and I am so disappoint. What happened to pop? Why is everything so boring, awkward, and/or uncomfortable?
Mariah Carey “#Beautiful” feat. Miguel
Mariah…is really trying. Hard. Hashtag Beautiful is Hashtag Boring and Neck-Breaka Miguel isn’t adding anything other than sugarsweetsyrup to this with his lil swishy behind. This video though. Mariah playing an innocent sex kitten at sixty-seven years old is so uncomfortable to watch. She has the right to wear whatever she wants…I just wish she wanted to wear more. She’s just so unsexy. She doesn’t even move sexy. Stop trying to be sexy all the time. You aren’t Janet. Nobody is checking for your midriff, I promise you.
Well, I’m not sure whether you know this or not, but Naomi Campbell had already BeenThere DoneThat TheyLovedMeInJapan ten years earlier. In the spirit of competition, as well as internet cattiness and holiday boredom…who had the better video?
