We don’t have cable, but there is this awesome station that was just added recently to regular TV called “The Cool TV” (It’s channel 23-2 if you live in the twin cities area).
They play music videos all day. Seriously, the guide says “Music Videos” for the whole lineup, with some other things like “Pop Hour” and “80’s at 8:00” thrown in, and very few commercials.
I’ve never watched it for more than a few minutes at a time, but they play everything from top 40 to classic 80’s videos, live recordings, etc.
So today I had the pleasure of seeing back to back: Ke$ha and Justin Beiber.
First of all, I did not know Ke$ha was white. I was aware of the spelling of her name, so I guess I imagined the $ bling jewelry that black rappers tend to wear. But she is not black and didn’t appear to be rapping. My bad. I don’t know what the song was but there was a lot of dancing in a club like they were dumb (her lyrics?) and in between dancing they were looking at the dating site Plenty of Fish. Yeah, why not look at a dating website when there are real people in the club to meet?
Maybe I just missed the point of the video cause I was nursing Jane at the same time and not giving it my full attention?
And then…Justin Beiber!
Hahhaaaa ok I knew what he looked like from magazine covers, but have never seen him on tv or performing.
HAHHAAAAAA. The video was “Give me someone to love” with Usher and seriously made me laugh out loud a couple times.
He looks like a little kid completely out of place in this video, it was almost like an SNL skit. Complete with the “whoaoa whoaoaaaa” dramatic vocals, hands held up next to his face like he is in angst because he can’t find someone to love and he’s like 12.
(How old is he really? I don’t care enough to look it up.)
Anyway, his hair looks like a helmet and is ridiculous.
Maybe tomorrow I’ll watch Jerry Springer while I’m nursing! Or, maybe I’ll wake up early enough for The Young and the Restless!! (Full disclosure, I used to be absolutely obsessed with this soap opera in my late high school/early college years, but think the quality has gone down since then.)
My first day home alone is going great, here are some more pics of my sweet potato muffin angel face baby:
