Last Friday Night – Katy Perry (Viceroy Poolside Remix)

19 Jul

T.G.I.F (it’s actually Thursday)

This is killer. I only found it by trawling through our inbox (and if you’re emailing us, please avoid capslock at all costs. Most likely I’ll be checking this thing in the early hours of the morning and don’t appreciate my computer SCREAMING AT ME) but it’s great. Viceroy is a producer from San Francisco (whence comes all the coolest music) and remixed Katy Perry’s Last Friday Night last summer! It may be slightly dated but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t check it out immediately. I’ve posted the MP3 below and you can download it from Soundcloud. After the jump is the original Last Friday Night video (fun!) and an article I wrote at the time (tempus fugit! I remember writing that in Thailand) about Katy Perry, Beyonce and feminism. It was kinda cool:

A Career Retropspective Of This Katy Perry Thing

5 Jul

I made a collage. And I liked it. Seriously, I love a collage.

I’m leaving on vacation tomorrow! I’ll be back the end of July and then for three weeks in August. I’m away but never truly gone (seriously, I have posts lined up). Anyway, today is also a good day because a) it’s Thursday! and b) it’s (one of) our artists of 2011’s film premiere. Katy Perry’s Part of Me opens today and I’m heading to learn about the path to super stardom with my sister. I’m super pumped which, given some of these descriptions, isn’t surprising. Quite simply, I think Perry’s one of the most intelligent, inspiring and unique singer-songwriters of our generation. Let’s check out some of these tunes, shall we?

Woodkid’s Teenage Dream

4 May

Photos From Last Night: Lana, Woodkid, Katy.

Friday! Thank goodness. Here’s some exposition about Woodkid: His real name is Yoann Lemoine, he’s a french music video director and artist. He’s directed videos for Katy Perry (Teenage Dream), LDR (Born To Die) and Drake (Take Care.) I kinda want to be him. He’s released an album called Iron, which currently resides in my Amazon basket. He performed Videogames with LDR, live:

Freakin’ cute (how adorable is LDR’s giggle after the wolf-whistle?) Here’s his rendition of Teenage Dream.

Teenage Dream – Kelsie Rimmer

20 Apr

Aussie rules

Have you been watching The Voice? I haven’t but that’s purely my memory’s fault and not BBC’s. It always seem to be on earlier than I think and I never remember next week. I know, I know, series link but I don’t need another television show in my life right now. Anyway, I was Tumblring the other day and found this little gem. A contestant from The Voice Australia singing Katy Perry’s Teenage Dream. This is probably one of my favourite love (?) songs of all time, and Rimmer’s rendition is ah-muz-ing. Take a lookedy-look after the jump:

Reviewing Katy Perry’s Complete Confection

26 Mar

Sorry for: lack of posting, breaking Hunger Games-related promises. News: I’m not particularly reliable, Katy Perry’s Teenage Dream has been re-packaged with some bonuses. What we’re going to do: try and be a better person, review them. See you after the jump.

Bullet – Katy Perry

4 Jan

Howdy! 2012 has been the year where I’ve been indisputably Sherlocked. I like, and can easily separate both versions. Guy Ritchie’s is a fast-paced, rompy caper. And Moffat’s version is a fast-paced, rompy caper. Okay, there are a few distinctions but when you boil both Sherlocks down, they contain a little heart a lot fun.

10 Things I Love About Pop: Week 6

19 Nov

Talking That Talk (in black and white): It’s been a moody time in pop. Not really, but I couldn’t find colour photos.

Last week was pretty dramatic for me, and pop music. And the WORLD.  So let’s take a more peaceful gander through the world of pop music this week. No apocalyptic visions, just ear-friendly beats. It was a Rihanna-centric week which is good news for anyone who’s a fan of the Good Girl Gone Debauched, bad for anyone who still has Umber-ella-ella-ella ringing through their brain. This is also a video-heavy post, because a) there seemed to be rather a lot this week and b) I’m tired. Let’s pop!
