I wouldn’t say I went into Heidi Montag’s song “Heartbeat” with an open mind as I learned my lesson from her horrible album Superficial. It’s more accurate to say I braced myself for the worst, which apparently wasn’t enough.
I considered not positing the song at all because — really — why should I make anyone listen to it? But I guess it’s a shining example of what’s wrong with the mainstream music industry today. How is she relevant enough to record an album when there are so many unrecognized talented people out there?
Even with robotic auto-tuning , Montag manages to sound whiney. It’s as though someone’s trying to bar her mouth while whispering “For all that’s good! Stop singing!” but her voice travels through the muffled hands anyway.
The lyrics aren’t much better as she promises to be: “your hot mess, school girl in curls, whatever you like” and uses pretty obvious sexual innuendos “stick your key in my ignition, baby” and “you can be my pilot when we mile-high it.”
The track is from her just released album Dreams Come True.

Actor-turned-rapper Childish Gambino has dropped the heavily anticipated clip for “Heartbeat” from his debut LP Camp.
“I thought the best way to convey the feeling that’s in the song was to be confused ourselves,” Glover told MTV about the Kyle Newacheck directed video. The two had previously worked together on an episode of Community back in 2009. ”I wouldn’t say it’s so much a video as much as it is just a mood.”
Whatever the case, it’s bringing back those Drive-like urges to buy a Scorpion jacket and driving gloves.
On Thursday night, Lady Gaga was scheduled to perform at Purdue University, however cancelled the show at the last minute due to illness. Furthermore, LiveNation (the tour’s promoter) announced that Saturday’s show in Atlantic City, and Sunday’s show in Wallingford, Connecticut have been cancelled, and that Monday’s show in Uncasville, Connecticut will be rescheduled.
Gaga tweeted about the Thursday night event, explaining to disappointed fans, “I’ve been crying for hours, I feel like I let my fans down 2nite. An hour before the show, I was feeling dizzy and having trouble breathing.”
