Keeping on with the official reinvention, we will now proceed to give what you need in all the Mixtape music news that you guys can handle. I’m sure I can speak for all of you when I say that there is truly nothing better than a big ol’ slice of music gossip to get your mojo going. Over the past month, we’ve been dishing out one daily piece of music dish for you…and you all have certainly ate it up. Starting today, we’re going to give you more, more, more by delivering not one, but five short and sassy sonnet bulletins. So, if you’re looking to check out Carly Rae’s new video for “I Really Like You,” find out when the hell Gaga’s album is actually coming out and THAT Britney video that everyone’s talking about, we’ve got you covered. Get lost in your daily dose of Mixtape music news below…
1. THIS squeaky Britney Spears “Oops” parody….
Over the weekend, music video parodist Mario Wienerroither took a fun jab at Britney Spears’ classic 2000 video for “Oops…I Did it Again” by taking out the music…and adding in squeaks from her infamous red catsuit. The hilarious video is not only worth watching, I don’t know, a million times, but it’s also fun to hear the added “oohs” and “ahhs” that Britney made so famous. Trust me, you guys will love it…
2.Carly Rae Jepsen releases Tom Hanks-licious video for “I Really Like You”
Whether you really, really like it or not, Carly Rae Jepsen is back. Over the weekend, Ms. Carly delivered the video for her comeback single, “I Really Like You,” which features a whole lot of….Tom Hanks. In the cheeky clip, Mr. Tom takes over most of it, lip synching Carly’s catchy tune while walking around NYC’s Soho section before finally meeting up with the singer (and the Biebs, too) for a fun and corny dance routine. Cheesy? Yes…but it’s springtime…live a little!
3.Lady Gaga set to release new album….in 2016
After her show stopping ‘The Sound of Music’ tribute at the Oscars last month and recent announcement of her role in the upcoming, ‘AHS:Hotel,’ it looked as if Ms. Gaga was ready to make that music comeback that we’ve all been patiently waiting for. However…it turns out that we just have to be patient a bit longer. While she’s indeed in the studio hard at work on a new set, it looks as if it won’t be released until next year. But, that’s just yet another morsel of the Gaga comeback story, for more, you guys should check out this article from Billboard.com, which further tells the tale of Gaga’s forthcoming music reinvention. Guess we’ll just dance to Gaga’s older hits until the new set is ready…
4.’SNL’ takes on Iggy Azalea and ‘Empire’
Over the weekend, ‘SNL’ delivered a one, two music comedy punch by delivering the sketch, ‘The Iggy Azalea Show’ (played to perfection by Kate McKinnon), as well as taking on the FOX phenom, ‘Empire,’ by adding in a new “white character” named Chip, played so dutifully by host Chris Hemsworth. While I don’t want to give too much away, I will say that both are equally hilarious and added ferocious flair to what was a very hearty ‘SNL’ episode this past weekend.
5. This Whitney Houston influenced “Must-Listen-Monday” groove from singer Natalie La Rose
By now, you guys might have heard “Somebody,” the delightful debut single from Dutch singer Natalie La Rose that features parts of the dearly departed Whitney’s, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody.” If you haven’t heart this blazing banger, it’s worth a spot on your playlists. R&B crooner is also along for the lovely music ride, which is laced with a bubbling groove and fun, campy lyrics….just in time for spring.
