Let’s call this the Variety Post of andPOP. Even we miss a couple stories every week that we wish we could cover. Here are some quick hits from the past couple days.
1) Highlights from Project X premiere party
Project X is being labeled the party movie of the year and the premiere blowout certainly verifies that. The party included performances by Tyler, The Creator, A-Trak, The Hundred In The Hands, Drop The Lime, Jesse Marco and Kid Cudi. Okay, I’m hooked.
2) Baby Snooki
As we know, Snooki is probably going to turn her supposed pregnancy into a Jersey Shore spin-off. Jimmy Kimmel envisions the show as more of a Rugrats style cartoon, but it still has plenty of spit-ups, burps and baby herpes to go around.
3) Grimes’ premieres “Oblivion”
This airy video, directed by Emily Kai Bok, is for a track from Grimes’ first album “Visions.” The quirky pink-haired singer dances awkwardly in a football stadium. It’s definitely a chill track to replay over the weekend.
4) Jingle Punks
The Jingle Punks are a hipster orchestra that created an Oscar mashup of all the best songs over history. The live performance includes shoutouts to Indiana Jones, Ghostbusters, James Bond and Whitney Houston’s The Bodyguard.
5) New scene from The Hunger Games
With all the trailers and scenes being released for The Hunger Games, I feel like I’ve pretty much seen the whole movie. What’s left? Today they released yet another new seen to torment you. The short clip features Katniss’s mean archery skills.
6) Justin Bieber’s dad posts a birthday video
When I first saw this video I thought it was some sort of parody or spoof… but no, it’s really Justin Bieber’s dad, Jeremy Bieber. What do you get the boy with everything for his birthday? How about a tattoo of the initials “JB,” for Justin Bieber, though it conveniently stands for his initials too. The worst part is when his dad picks up his phone and says: “Hello Weezy, what’s popping?” Cringe!
