If this music biz thing doesn't work out for Katy Perry, I'd say she could probably made a decent living by performing at birthday parties — so long as she doesn't use this video as her work reel. The video for "Birthday" operates in the tradition of Bad Grandpa and Punked, with Katy in serious disguise as horribly incompentent birthday entertainers. We get the animal expert who likes to eat mice and let the animals crap all around the kids, an elderly stripper who makes Robin Byrd look hot, a Bar Mitzvah comic who makes Bruce Vilanch seem cutting edge (I kid), and much more.
And lest you're worried that Katy ruined all these parties, I'm sure they're more than thrilled to be involved in what's likely to be a smash... and those kids with the awful facepaintings don't seem so annoyed when she reveals her true identity.
Katy Perry looks like she'll be going full-Klumps in this preview for her new "Birthday" video. She plays a series of not-so-great birthday entertainers, ranging from Goldie, a moldy former dancer, to Yosef Shulem, a Borscht-belt comedian with jokes as stale as week-old challah.
The full video rolls out Thursday, April 24 — and, hey, if this music thing doesn't work out, then I'm pretty Katy can get an HBO comedy going with these characters.
There are many perks to being one of the biggest country crossover acts. One of them is you can afford very big toys. So while others might dart around in their pick-up trucks to a rodeo, FGA Line get on their Semi and Ride in style to an explosive motorcross.
Kinda appropriate that this is released early in the new year since the theme here is getting out of a bland state of ennui and adding some color to one's life. And probably giving the dry cleaner and Molly Maid some extra business. This is Foxes' latest video from her soon-to-be-released debut LP, Glorious.
Although R. Kelly has lately been resurrected as a sort of national treasure, he's still an acquired taste that leans decidedly NSFW — so its questionable whether Nabisco marketing execs are celebrating this high profile look for Oreos?
