Okay. Here’s my deal with Miss Xtina. I love Stripped, love Back to Basics even more. But then it took four years for Bionic to come out and it was a big, steaming pile of shit. Like, Not Myself Tonight is catchy and I’m into it, but Vanity, for me, is like slutty acrylics on a child’s chalkboard. I say child’s because her kid is at the end of it.
After Bionic, I straight up went off Christina. Wasn’t interested in anything she had going on, couldn’t have cared less. And then I watched The Voice and loved the shit out of it. It reignited the spark of my Christina Aguilera fandom enough that I watched Burlesque (and for the record, loved it. Put your hands up, show me how you burlesque!!) and well, here we are.
So after the massive flop that was Bionic, it seems Christina was as keen to move on from the entire era as everyone else was, pushing up her new album release from her standard four years between albums to a more manageable two years.
The new single, called Your Body, is cool. I’m actually really into it. Listen to it here. It sounds like Christina, which I think was missing from the last album which sounded like a whole bunch of Gaga rejects. I like the electropop synth vibe, the tempo is cool, the hook is wicked and is my favourite part of the song, and most importantly, it’s got a good balance of pop melody and vocal acrobatics (Beyonce, I’m looking at you. Sometimes your fans want to be able to sing along, ya know?).
Anyway, enough from me, what do you think of Xtina’s new single? Are you looking forward to Lotus, the new album?
So the video for As Long As You Love Me (the Bieber song, not the BSB song) is out, and I’ve gotta say, this song has grown on me a lot since I first heard it. It’s probably because I finally managed to stop comparing it to the Backstreet Boys song (which I still prefer, but it’s whatever.). Anyway, the video is great, but also kind of unintentionally hilarious, so let’s run through it real quick, yeah? Oh, you should probably watch it first, hey. Here it is:
And so, we begin. Biebs is walking to a payphone and it’s all intense.
Michael Madsen may be dressed like a Florida retiree/like Leo in Catch Me If You Can, but he’s still Michael Madsen, and he’s going to kick Bieber’s ass. JB should just be thankful that it doesn’t turn into *that scene* in Reservoir Dogs.
Michael Madsen’s all ‘IDEGAF get out of her life.’ It’s like Romeo and Juliet… but shit because where’s Leo? (Second Leo reference so far.)
If I was JB I’d back out now, but he’s all noble and shit and wants her daddy’s approval. Give you a hint, he’s not going to get it.
Okay, so after this convo, JB goes to a bunch of payphones, and this is where the song finally starts. He calls his girl and is all ‘As long as you love me…’
This is the phone he’s calling. Vintage shit is vintage.
This is JB’s indie, vintage phone owning girlfriend. She hasn’t even answered the phone, so I don’t know why JB’s singing to her already. Maybe he doesn’t understand how phones work.
JB’s asked her to run away with him. I’d probably do it because he’s like hella rich now, way richer than Michael Madsen would be. But not stronger, and that’s the point.
She’s gonna do a lot of this through the video, get used to it.
Oh, we’re back to this. JB’s all ‘what would you do?’ and MM is all ‘walk away, kid. (I’LL CUT YOUR FUCKING EAR OFF!)’ Okay, he doesn’t say that… but how badass would THAT shit be?
This video is ridiculous. It’s actually like it’s trying to be a Tarantino film the way the plot jumps around. You’re a music video, not Pulp Fiction. Stick to what you know, Biebs.
Literally just keeping this screenshot in because it’s badass.
‘Are you sure you wanna do this?’ They’re so star-crossed. Obviously.
Get used to this expression because it’s basically on JB’s face every single time there’s a close up of him singing. It’s meant to express heartbreak I think but actually it looks more constipated than anything. Awkwarrrrrrd.
Oh, here’s where all the lovely flashbacks to them being in love start. There’s lots of them too.
Being in love is writing on each other–Things I’ve learnt from this video.
This is the start of the best bit. After calling his girlfriend, he begins his mission to find her…
You think he’s just going to go directly there, because that would make the most sense… but it’s a music video…
… Not only does this mean that he’s going to dance like Michael Jackson the entire way…
While continuing to look pained, no less (quite the accomplishment, really).
Seriously. This entire part makes me laugh because of how awesome/unnecessary it is.
This is absolutely how I plan to walk everywhere when I’m in a rush from now on.
Seriously. It’s so dramatic, I love it.
We’re soooo in love.
Literally left this in just because I think it’s pretty.
Remember what we talked about? Drawing on each other is love.
And here’s the pained/constipated close up again.
… And again.
In hindsight I probably could’ve cut a lot of these out and you guys would’ve got the gist still… but it’s too late now.
Yes! My FAVOURITE PART. So on his way to meet his girlfriend, so they can run away together, because that’s the entire plot of the video, Biebs runs into a ragtag group of dancers in a car park.
Forgetting all about the love of his life, Biebs immediately jumps into dance with this crew, and all of a sudden it’s like you’re watching Step Up.
With that being said… as much as it makes Michael Masden’s point that he’ll hurt her, this is my favourite part because pop music videos need choreography and this dance break is sick.
But really, would JB’s girl be happy to see what her boyfriend gets up to when she’s not around?
Somehow he’s found a car and is presumably back on his mission to get to his girlfriend.
Blah blah, let’s be cute and write on each other. I’m over this part now.
If he loved her that much would he be slutting it up in a carpark with this HUSSY?!
I’m a pretty chill person, but if that was my boyfriend I’d probably be having words with him about this. I mean, what happened to ‘I can be a gentleman’?
MM is all ‘OMG WHAT EVEN IS THIS YOUNG LADY?! LOVE IS NOT WRITING ON EACH OTHER! LOVE IS TURNING DOWN A DANCE BREAK WITH SOME CAR PARK SLUTS, AND JB HAS NOT DONE THAT FOR YOU!’
He’s all cross because he doesn’t want her to be with JB. After seeing that dance routine I can’t say I blame the guy, really.
Ooh, first shot of JB all beat up. Don’t worry, there’s plenty more where this came from, and the constipated/pained expression is still there.
See what I mean about this being all over the place? Sometimes you can just show me events as they happen chronologically and I’ll be completely fine with it, seriously.
Leaving this one in because his expression makes me LOL.
The screencaps really don’t do the choreography justice. I mean, it’s no I’m a Slave 4U or Me Against the Music, but it’s sick.
This is one of my favourite screenshots just because it looks sick.
I really like all the stomping and kicking there is.
Ooh, and this little shuffle.
JB, that’s creepy.
LOLZ @ JB’s expression.
This is where girls go wrong. They confuse something totally creepy with being romantic. They’re not one in the same.
Oh, what the hell. Let him in, then.
Okay, this is some serious stranger danger right here.
As it turns out, JB’s had time to call his mate down to throw down a rap while he and his ragtag group of dancers rock out in the carpark. Because that’s normal life. I do that all the time.
Seriously though, less is probably more, bling wise.
A hood and a hat is also a lot of sun protection when it’s nighttime and you’re in an undercover car park. It’s suspicious. I’d probably run, if I’m being honest.
But again, it’s okay, because he’s just another member of JB’s posse.
Oh, here we are, back to the plot while this guy raps. She’s running away with him. It’s happening.
Do you know where YOUR daughter is, Michael Madsen? I don’t think you do… although I’ve got a pretty good idea you’re going to find her since this video has already given away what happens because it has no idea how to effectively use non-chronological storylines.
I think he’s keeping his arms up to ensure that we can see all his bling at once. We get it. You’re rich. Richer than us.
This looks like it should be a fragrance commercial for something summery and fresh smelling (which is not what JB’s perfume Someday smells like, because Someday smells like Britney’s Fantasy.)
… Most fragrance commercials don’t have the ominous side story of Michael Madsen being displeased with his daughter’s choice of boyfriend, though.
… Don’t you love how indie they are with that vintage wallpaper and camera?
It’s not the sun that’s making that effect, it’s the reflection off Big Sean’s bling. Oh, and his rap is still going.
Smoking is what bad guys do. MM is therefore supposed to be the bad guy. Oh, except JB is dance-cheating on this girl and MM is probably right to be concerned.
Lol. He’s going to march down there and give that boy a talking to.
JB goes to a public phone, dances in a carpark, and now he’s gonna bang his girlfriend in another carpark. I’m starting to wonder if he’s supposed to be homeless.
Shit’s about to go DOWN. Look how displeased he is. Immensely.
Even though he’s all beaten up, he still loves her.
This is the harmonies near the end where he’s like ‘LOVE…
The confrontation begins.
More harmonies. They’re basically all him looking pained singing things like ‘PLATINUM!’ and shit.
The fight moves pretty quickly but basically this is MM punching JB in his face.
Whoever edited this together basically makes a hot mess of the plot here. Like, it doesn’t even make sense anymore, but whatever.
Aaaahahhaha. These are the best. LEVITATION!
We’re back to them being in love. Again, in public. JB is so homeless in this video. He doesn’t even own a cell phone. OMG maybe it’s because he’s trying to make it as a dancer and that’s why he’s broke/meeting dancers in carparks. Okay, I get it. It’s like Step Up. I’m into it.
Remember, this is her bedroom, not his. He doesn’t have a bedroom because he’s a homeless dancer with nothing but his love to offer her, which is actually the plot of another Backstreet Boys song, All I Have To Give.
Quick, homeless or hipster?!
Remember, they’re very in love.
They actually look like they’re straight out of a catalogue here, don’t they?
Oh wait, we’re back here again. Okay. This is probably more harmonies. I can’t be bothered checking.
She’s trying to hold him back, but he’s all ‘nah, I’m gonna fight your dad,’ but again, it’s Michael Madsen and there’s no way in hell he’s going to win because he is Justin Bieber.
See? He’s already on the ground.
She’s all ‘Dad, no! I love him!’
Meanwhile, JB is struggling to stand up and coughs up a bunch of blood at one point too.
Oh, maybe this is the part where he coughs up the blood I was just telling you about.
At some point MM piles his daughter into his car and leaves JB bleeding on the side of the street. The moral of the story is ‘Don’t fight Michael Madsen, you will lose.’
Well, lovers, without a series of polls, these are now just going to be mostly unrelated polls about whatever the fuck comes into my head. You can see why this is the first of these, as Britney is always at the forefront of my mind. That’s not the case for everyone, though, so have your say!
Lana Del Rey did an interview with Nova about her first Australian tour with Tim Blackwell, and announced that she will be releasing a deluxe version of Born To Die with ‘around 7 new songs.’
It will be called the Paradise Edition, and if you’re interested, you can hear the 14 minute interview here. She talks about the re-release around the 12:00 mark and says that this re-release will be the end of this era of her music.
I adore Born To Die so I’m very excited to hear the 7 new songs, although I’m very curious to hear what her next era will bring.
So I was sitting at my computer, looking through my iTunes, wondering what song I should recap for this edition of PCP Flashback, and came across Day and Night. Now, don’t get me wrong, I love the Day and Night video a lot. Like, a whole lot. I think about Billie’s fierce black eyeliner in that video a lot, even now. Is that weird? That’s probably weird, but it’s true. Oh well. Point is, I feel like I’d maybe talked about that video recently, and then I realised that for the amount of times I’ve seen Day and Night this year (probably more than 4), I hadn’t seen the video to Because We Want To literally since it was a single. I’d forgotten about it completely, and let me tell you, if you’re in the same boat as me, and don’t remember this video, you are in for a TREAT, because it is INSANE.
Now, I’ve started formatting my galleries differently, so if you click the first image you should be able to view them all at a decent size with the captions down below. Let me know if you have any troubles with it, though!
So this is how the video starts out. You see a pretty normal looking street, and then a giant spaceship flies down and drops off Billie Piper. I guess that either means she’s an alien or she got abducted.
Boom. It’s Billie Piper, dressed in a purple suit with butterfly hairclips and sneakers.
So this is what I learnt watching the video: Anytime you see those glowing orb things around Billie, some seriously whack shit is about to happen.
Back up dancers! Let’s all get together in the street and do some mad late-90′s choreography! OMG. This doesn’t happen enough in videos right now. Billie’s a better dancer than I remember her being, too.
The back up dancers haven’t really gotten into it just yet, but I think maybe alien/abductee Billie is teaching them her 90′s space moves. Pay attention, there’s definitely more where that came from.
So I missed the part where there were glowing orbs around Billie for this one, but basically she points at a garbage can and it goes all Alex Mack on her and melts into a puddle.
Seriously, this is straight from Alex Mack, am I right?
… Except that Alex Mack is a girl who can turn into a puddle and back, not a trash can that Billie’s turned into a trash-can-puddle-man. Because that’s whack.
Apparently this isn’t a disturbing turn of events for Billie or her back up dancers, so they just get stuck into the choreography.
It’s like a late 90′s flash mob. Billie was so ahead of the times.
This move is sick and I’ll be trying it out.
Orbs. ORBS! Whack shit alert!
I think if I did drugs I’d find this video terrifying.
Basically, the orbs appeared, she pointed at the sign and her name popped up. That’s not even the mental part though.
This fucking cartoon dude leaps out of the fucking billboard (Billieboard?!)…
… and starts dancing! What even?!
Better than that, Billie’s like ‘Sick! More people to dance with!’ and gets right down with this come-to-life ad-boy.
I actually don’t have much to add for this one, I just think these screencaps are so ridiculous that I couldn’t delete them.
Look at all the background dancers, just accepting this as normal.
Enough of that, time for MORE CHOREOGRAPHY. Except it’s around now that you realise that she’s just got the one chorus full of moves, and they don’t change, so we’re literally just watching them do the same however many steps over and over.
‘Hey guys! Wait for me!’
This part is whack because all the back up dancers are gone and suddenly there’s a really bizarre green screen effect going on for absolutely no reason.
Basically I left all these in because her facial expressions are amazing.
There’s a couple of times during this bizarre segment when she says things like ‘me and the crew there’s nothing we can’t do,’ and points behind her, except that there’s no one there and it’s totally funny.
‘Hey, 3D ad-man! I’m trash-can puddle-man, care to dance?’
‘If you wanna catch this vibe then get with US!’ … except that it’s just her.
The strangest dance off in history.
… I don’t know who won.
‘Here we are at da cluuuuub, *click* MY CLUB. Called Billie. My name’s Billie. Billie.’ She literally just goes around branding everything, you can tell it’s a debut single because her PR people are desperate.
‘I love when I get to my club and there’s no line, makes me wanna DANCE!’ Also, as a side note, this club looks like P3 from Charmed.
‘We need a bouncer. A RHINOCEROS will be perfect for the job! *click*’
‘See you in there, I’m gonna go daaaaaance!’
‘I’m a rhino… just head on in, I won’t stop you because this is a normal situation and you’re on the list.’
‘I don’t have ID on me but you’re looking kind of… horny… maybe we could work something out?’
‘I’m so happy to be in the club that I’m just going to dance in the doorway for a few seconds if that’s okay.’
‘All in a days work.’
‘I’m so excited to be in MY club! Let’s all get on the stage and do the routine we’ve been practicing on the streets for the past few minutes.’
I’m pretty sure that’s the plot of at least one Step Up film, just saying…
It’s the exact same choreography, but because it’s in a slightly different location it’s like it’s BRAND NEW!
‘Ooh, you know what? After dancing in my suit all day, I’m actually feeling a teensy bit flushed… ‘
‘… Maybe I’ll take my jacket off.’
She’s got a personalised holster. That’s bad ass, you guys.
This is literally how I picture my nights out turning out, but instead I just get shitfaced and then I can’t remember any of the sick dance moves that I’ve stolen from The Sims 3. I’m not kidding about that. My sims are the fiercest dancers.
These guys tagged along to the club, I guess the rhino let them in…
Once again, if you haven’t picked up on it yet, her name is Billie. And the rhino’s not very good at his job.
And that concludes our third PCP Flashback. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did! If you have any suggestions for the next recap let me know, too. I’d love to hear your suggestions!
It’s no secret to y’all just how much love I have for Rihanna, so you’ll understand that I’m incredibly excited about this.
Rihanna, my favourite filthy queen of slut pop (after Britney, obviously) has just announced her own clothing line. Debuting in Spring 2013, Rihanna is teaming with London based brand River Island to create her own line.
Announcing it on her blog, she said:
I’ve been wanting to design my own collection for some time. River Island is the perfect partner for me to collaborate with and working with a British, family run business also really appealed to me.
I find London really inspiring and River Island loves to have fun with clothes. I’m looking forward to working with them and creating something really special.
So, basically I’m expecting her line to be a mix of girly fun clothes and tough bitch, bad-ass shit. However it turns out, though, I’m sure I’ll be totally into it, and will be keeping you posted as more information becomes available.
Frank Ocean has just become the first hip-hop star to come out, posting this long message on his Tumblr:
Four summers ago, I met somebody. I was 19 years old. He was too.
We spent that summer, and the summer after, together. Everyday almost. And on the days we were together, time would glide. Most of the day I’d see him, and his smile.
Sleep I would often share with him. By the time I realized I was in love, it was malignant. It was hopeless. There was no escaping, no negotiating to the women I had been with, the ones I cared for and thought I was in love with.
I don’t have any secrets I need kept anymore … I feel like a free man.
Following this, his Odd Future bandmate Tyler the Creator tweeted:
My Big Brother Finally F***ing Did That. Proud Of That N***a Cause I Know That Shit Is Difficult Or Whatever.
I’m not going to lie, I laughed at the blase attitude of ‘I know that shit is difficult or whatever.’
Apparently Ocean opens up about his bisexuality on his new album Channel Orange, also. One journalist who attended a listening party for the record states:
Frank has also opened up about his sexuality on the album, we think it’s brave and admire him for being so honest and sharing such a personal aspect of his life through his music. On the songs ‘Bad Religion,’ ‘Pink Matter’ and ‘Forrest Gump’ you can hear him sing about being in love and there are quite obvious words used like ‘him’ and not ‘her.’
Welcome to PCP’s first video recap WITH SCREENCAPS. I’m so good to y’all, for real. I had to Google ‘how to screencap YouTube Videos’ because after having my Mac for over two years, apparently there are still things I’m not sure how to do. I’m going to need you to go ahead and ignore where you can see the little red loading bar at the bottom when you can see it there. First time, you know?
Anyway, let’s get to it! If you’d like, you can watch the video beforehand, (you should ‘coz Adam Levine and Minka Kelly are babes), but I mean, I SCREENCAPPED the shit out of it so you can get the gist either way.
So that shot up there is what we open on, and let me tell you, pay attention, because those goldfish will be important later on in the video.
We get a bunch of quick shots of happy snaps of Adam Levine, Minka Kelly, and what is presumably their child together. Minka Kelly is super pretty. I’m sure Adam Levine could give up Victoria’s Secret models if the other option was Minka Kelly.
I should probably be thinking about how cute that baby is, but really I’m just looking at Adam Levine and thinking about how I wouldn’t mind making a baby with him. Hey-o!
I think what we’re seeing is ‘domestic bliss.’ Adam’s tending to the baby while his super hot girlfriend makes him breakfast.
Ooh, a training montage. I don’t really get what’s happening, because in my mind this video was going to be all sexually charged like Love the Way You Lie, but less violent, and without Eminem hanging out in a field. I don’t really watch boxing movies, so I’m going to assume that this is referencing Rocky, or The Fighter, or Warrior, or that one that I can’t remember the name of but is basically Step Up but with punching.
Adam Levine can have a fierce boxing career AND maintain his home life while he trains for what I assume will be a big fight (because I feel like in all those films there’s ALWAYS a big fight coming up because what would the point be otherwise?). Or can he? Ooh, foreshadowing.
There’s this really gratuitous Minka Kelly ass shot that reminds me of Jessica Beil in Texas Chainsaw massacre, particularly because they’re basically wearing the same thing:
You guys should take a look at my search history sometime, because believe me when I say I Google some weird shit to find these pictures for y’all sometimes.
Ooh, mysterious. She looks like she’s up to something.
Don’t worry about why your girlfriend isn’t talking to you, she still made you breakfast, so y’all are cool. Back to training!
See? It’s a new day and shit’s cool again, maybe she was just on her period or something. Girls, right? Kind weird how they’re all wearing the same thing every day.
‘Laterz, babe. Off to kick some ass!’
Just a heads up, if you leave to go to work and your girlfriend looks like this, be prepared for a shit storm. That being said, I actually don’t understand what her deal is. Looks to me like he just has a job that he goes to everyday like the majority of us do, and she’s pitchin’ a bitch fit about it.
Uh-oh, have you been paying attention? These are the fish from the start! If we’re seeing them again their must be a reason. Let’s keep watching.
The BIG FIGHT is here! DING DING!
Adam’s in the ring, ready to kick some ass like the champion he is. (Look at his trophies up there in the fish shot! WINNER!)
Meanwhile, wait, what’s going on at home?! Is she packing? Are they going on a trip?
Uh oh, guys, I think things might be getting serious up in hurrrrrrrr.
There’s a fight montage going on while Minka’s packing all her shit up, but I like this screenshot better.
This is the part where he regroups because he’s losing. HE DOESN’T EVEN KNOW HOW MUCH HE’S LOSING RIGHT NOW, OMG.
He gets back into the fight and WINS. WINNERRRRRRRRRRR!
The camera makes a big deal about her packing up these two books, and focuses on her packing her copy of Grimms’ Fairytales for what feels like a very long time. OMG THIS IS SO DEEP, their fairytale is OVUH.
‘Hey baby! I’m a champion!!’
‘Baby? Da fuck? Did we get robbed?’
‘What the fuck is going on?’
‘Oh, shit. Now I understand. You’ve left me and used our fish as symbolism instead of talking to me about it or even leaving a note when you moved my daughter out of our house. That’s totally normal.’
‘Fuck. I chose my career over my girlfriend’s happiness one too many times, and now I’m paying the price.’
‘This is definitely my fault and not the fault of my psychotic girlfriend.’
Okay. For real. This video is mental.
First up, the lyrics to this song are all about a couple who fight and make up constantly because they’re bad for each other but it’s all sexy and passionate, but they should break up because they’re bad for each other.
The video, on the other hand, is about Minka Kelly living some Kate Winslet in Revolutionary Road life of quiet desperation, supporting her boxer boyfriend, smiling, raising their child, cooking him meals, but really hating every second of it and plotting her escape.
If she doesn’t like what he does, fair enough, but there’s really no indicator of that in the video that I saw. Also, he’s a champion, the trophies say so. And since the trophies are from like 2006, and there’s no way that kid was born before 2006, maaaaaybe she should’ve thought twice before having his kid if she knew she didn’t like his career. Bitches be psycho, yo.
I don’t even.
Also, although you don’t see it in the video, I totally picture her grabbing her fish out of the bowl the way Chandler’s insane roommate Eddie does, because let’s be realistic, she’s just as fucking unhinged.
Welcome to PCP’s newest series, where we travel back in time (probably to the late 90′s-early 00′s) and relive some fantastic moments in pop culture history. I’m really excited about this, because this gives me an excuse to sit around and watch 90′s music videos. Not that you ever really need an excuse. Anyway, today we’re going to look at Danish pop sisters S.O.A.P’s smash hit This Is How We Party. Fun fact, they’re just called soap, it doesn’t stand for anything. They were going to hold a competition with their fans to come up with a meaning behind the acronym… but then they basically disappeared after Ladidi Ladida. Totes awkward.
Oh, if you’re unfamiliar with This Is How We Party, then you’re welcome, because I’ve just got you onto one of the greatest pop songs ever written, and good luck getting it out of your head. As an introduction, the girl on the left of the picture up there is Line Sørensen, and on the right is her older sister Heidi Sørensen. But what are we waiting for?! Are you excited, because I sure as fuck am.
Okay, let’s run through it play by play.
S.O.A.P tv. Fantastic. I guess that’s their version of Aquascope:
I really didn’t expect that to be as hard to find as it was, apparently an aquascope is a thing to look at the water. Fuck that.
Okay, can we just talk about that silver lipstick for a second? Ah, man, I wish I had a photo, but I totally had an opaque silver lipgloss when I was 11. It smelt like coconut and I thought I was the BOMB when I wore it. Yes, I wore it out. I alternated between that and this deep raspberry lipstick with legit CHUNKS of silver glitter in it that I paid maybe $3 for. I’m not talking any kind of glitter that looks like it belongs in make-up, though, I’m talking like, craft glitter. I was basically the coolest 11 year old, you guys. We’re not even fifteen seconds in, though. Let’s keep moving.
When my friend and I talked about which one we wanted to be, I picked Line and she picked Heidi. I totally made the wrong choice, didn’t I? Heidi’s way prettier. I don’t know what I was thinking.
OMG the decor. I actually want all of it, I’d have a 90′s room. Also, remember when sunflowers were huge and they were like, stuck on hats and shit all the time? Fucking Blossom hats.
Fierce crocheted cardi. You can’t get green cardigans this season, apparently.
Their boyfriend… well… what can you say? I know it’s the 90′s but it’s hard to take a man seriously in a leather vest doing ducklips. Also, shouldn’t they have separate love interests? Are they planning on sharing?
Definitely would’ve murdered someone to get one of those phones that Heidi has where the dial is on the bottom. I had a normal phone extension in my room and felt pretty cool about it, it had a dial instead of buttons (which wasn’t cool but it was a phone so I thought I was a fierce diva). One day I got bored and painted it with a bunch of different nail polishes. I also painted my alarm clock with nail polish. Both of them still worked, but they looked shitty.
I love everything that Heidi is wearing. Also, I want a pink fluffy bathrobe.
I wonder where they got that disco ball at such short notice. Bangin’ party, though. They must be popular. Also, this video kind of reminds me of Can’t Hardly Wait when I watch it and I don’t reaaaaaaally know why…
S.O.A.P cheerleaders. If I threw a party I would want there to be cheerleaders that spelt out my name. If you’re reading this and you want to throw me a surprise party, I want cheerleaders that spell out Stephanie. That would be the most amazing thing in the world.
Men in black! Galaxy defenders at their party!
The cool guy’s shown up and the fiercest moment of the video happens when he points at his lights and they turn off. Seriously amazing stuff. He’s like the Fonz.
The back of their house door is padded purple velvet. Pretty sure they live in a brothel.
Male model kind of looks like young Joey (from Friends, obviously).
Male model’s got some moooooooves, but the S.O.A.P cheer squad disapproves. Get. Him. OUT OF HERE! GET HIM OUT OF HERE!
Aw, the geeky guy’s got the mooooooooooves like Jagger.
Fierce glitter streamer background. They definitely don’t live in a normal house though, hey.
Shit’s getting ridiculous. Their parents left, they called their friends and were like ‘hey, we’re having a party, kinda last minute, it’s whateverrrrr,’ and now people are rocking up in all kinds of costumes. Just throwing it out there, next time you last minute invite me somewhere, I might rock up as a FUCKING STRAWBERRY. Just ‘coz. That idea makes me laugh so much that I would seriously consider it. I feel like if it’s not my party the host might feel like I’m trying to steal focus, though. I probably would be trying to steal focus, though, let’s be honest.
There’s not enough choreography in this video. It’s probably why S.O.A.P didn’t last that long. What a shame.
Absolutely going to pull out that mad arm-waving move around 2:55 next time I’m on a dancefloor, though. That’s going to look so sick set to Pitbull.
Their dad’s totally into it. He looks like the ‘yes, dear’ type. He just wants to cut loose. Footloose.
They totally leave their own party with that geek and leave a whole bunch of people in their house. Their parents don’t even try to stop them.
Let me fill in the blanks for you:
Those girls are mad sluts. Sisters banging the same guy at a house party? Leaving their own house party? Sluts. I’m tellin’ ya.
The only reason their dad didn’t stop them is because he’s doing shots and trying to fuck the S.O.A.P cheer squad, while his high strung wife lays unconscious on the floor. That’s totally sinister, but hey, I’m just piecing it together from the facts that I’ve been given.
And that concludes the first PCP Flashback! At this stage I’m going to be aiming to do these every second Tuesday, but I very much enjoyed writing this one, so they may come more frequently than that. Did you have as much fun as I did? What’s your favourite late 90′s-early 00′s pop song? Send me suggestions and you might see a recap in the future!
So, if you read PCP even somewhat regularly, you’ll be aware of my fast-developing love for Adam Levine. I have no idea how he’s managed to slip under my radar for all these years, but my God. So hot.
Anyway. Enough of me gushing like a schoolgirl.
Maroon 5 have a new album called Overexposed out later this month, and they’ve just released the second single, One More Night. Listen to the album track and watch their first live performance of it below:
This is crazy catchy. I heard it for the first time like half an hour ago and it’s stuck in my head. I’ve also listened to it basically on repeat… which helps, but you know what I’m saying. I’m loving the super-pop version of Maroon 5 that this era is offering.
For all my Britney bitches out there, is it just me or is this like a boy version of Inside Out? It might just be because I was listening to Femme Fatale at work today, so it’s fresh in my mind, but basically I’m going to consider this the other side of the story to Brit Brit’s Inside Out. Britney and Adam Levine is definitely a sex tape I’d watch, also. Just saying. If you’re for some reason unfamiliar with the greatness that is Inside Out, you can listen to that below, too.
Oh, and here’s a photo of shirtless Adam Levine, because I’m good to y’all like that:
