Jessie J, Ariana Grande, and Nicki Minaj came together for “Bang Bang” which could have been some sort of mini “Lady Marmalade” situation but, unfortunately, is not. I now find Jessie J annoying and after watching the VMAs, it’s apparent Ariana Grande has negative personality. When I watch her I feel like I’m sacrificing part of my personality to an unknown being.
After seeing the “My Song 5″ video, I’m very interested in this HAIM situation and mostly wondering if you all know anything about them slash have inklings about any of them being queer because I am now severely into their whole entire deal whereas before I was just somewhat into their music. Also in the middle of the video they all wear leather jackets and start a coven? I don’t know why witchcraft is a gay thing but it for sure is probably because of Hermione’s omnipresence in our youth.
Hannah Hart tries to get to the bottom of whether a girl is gay or not in her helpful How to Ask if a Girl is Gay video. In my experience, it’s never as simple as just asking but it should be and isn’t because of the patriarchy.
Jon Stewart finally delivers his signature smackdown of Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity, and other dumb dumbs about their handling of Ferguson news coverage and basically their complete lack of understanding of the way race functions in America.
Amy Poehler seemed genuinely annoyed by Neal Brennan being unaware of his male privilege while doing an interview for his show, “The Approval Matrix” and thusly lays into him before slyly moving into a “funny” answer. I love it when Poehler gets annoyed with stuff like this and just goes off for a quick second then goes back into her comedic persona. It’s probably what people would call “sneak attack” feminism but it’s more along the lines of “I am so tired of you people” feminism.
This is Brittani’s Video Party, where I bring some of the “best” videos from all over my internet together so we can clap, cry or deconstruct. Have you ever gotten to a video and it already has 33 million views and you wonder where the heck have you been? Well I’m here to help you so that you see it when it only has 32 million views. Aim low, world. Aim low.
