NEW MUSIC VID: - “My Song 5” ft. , Vampire Weekend’s , , , Big Sean, Ke$ha, & “SNL“‘s Vanessa Bayer

Lolol totally luv the randomness of this damn vid.  U already know I’m a huge fan of this album & song.

Via Pitchfork:


In it, “Saturday Night Live” star Vanessa Bayer plays Dallas Murphy, the host of a Jerry Springer-style daytime talk show. The members of Haim play guests, as do a number of musicians. Ke$ha plays a woman in love with her cat, while Ferg is a guy whose girlfriend is leaving him for another woman. Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig is a stoic audience member; Grimes chats with Danielle Haim in the waiting room; Big Sean shows up, too, as do Haim’s parents and producer Ariel Rechtshaid.

"Shake It Off" - Lefsetz Letter

I love the new track “Shake it Off.”  But I told my friends I’m a lil bummed T Swift is going full on Pop b/c that country splash did help distinguish her.  She’s now going to sound like other top Pop singers, not too distinguishable from the Katy Perrys of the world.  I’m sure I’ll love the album too.  But, time will tell if she’ll be able to still have that edge now that she’s full pop? 

An insightful excerpt from this post:

She was working in that bastion of truth known as country music, now she’s just another faceless pop singer, boosted by Max Martin and Shellback. There’s no difference between her and Katy Perry and the rest of those young women backed up by the old men. They bought insurance. It’s as if your parents hired someone to take your SATs for you, so you could get into an Ivy. Sure, you achieved your goal, but don’t you feel crummy inside, isn’t there a telltale heart?
