Kreayshawn went all bubble pop electronic on us for her new track “Go Hard (La.La.La).” While the Barbie chorus and nonsense lyrics become slightly annoying by the end, the partially-animated music video is worth watching.
Kreayshawn raps in front of cartoon bloodshot pupils and from front pages of Andy Warhol-tinted comics. She raps: “Hey, bitch. What’s up. You know, I’d really like to do that, but I don’t have any fucking money. Like, I don’t have any fucking money.” The track is from her forthcoming album Somethin ‘Bout Kreay, out Aug 14.

Our favourite celebrities are usually so glammed up in dramatic costumes and makeup that it’s hard to imagine what they looked like as dimple-cheeked kids. From their perspective, a home video surfacing on YouTube must be like when a proud parent pulls out an embarrassing photo of your first successful potty training lesson to scare your new date (wait, that doesn’t happen to everyone?).
Luckily, these videos aren’t that embarrassing. In fact, they’re pretty adorable.
Without the heavy liquid eyeliner, Kreayshawn is barely recognizable. She posted this video on YouTube a couple days ago with the comment: “I decided to put some old footage of me up so you guys can see a little of how I grew up and some things that inspired me to be who I am today. It is pretty damn hilarious. I have always been a free spirt and I hope this video inspires young girls too. You can do anything you wanna do.”
When I was seven years old I could play “Hot Cross Buns” on the piano but here’s Lady Gaga basically being a little piano prodigy. The video, which was shot in 1993, is short, sweet and foreshadows what was to come… well, except for her daring sense of fashion. Who knew this headband-wearing pianist would later wear a smelly meat dress on the red carpet?

In Kreayshawn’s new video for “Summertime” she wears cutoff jeans, retro sunnies and Twiggy-esque falsies, while bumming around a park’s lookout point and Hollywood’s Walk of Fame. The rapper looks like a local tourist, casually strolling through LA and posing in front of Roscoe’s House of Chicken Waffles while her friend records her on a
90s hipster VHS camera.
The song, which features V-Nasty and was produced by DJ Two Stacks, reminds me of those write-off summer days when you’re just chilling in your backyard on a sweltering summer day with friends.
According to her YouTube page the “official video” is coming soon (though this looks pretty legit to us) and her album Somethin’ Bout Kreay will be in stores on Aug. 14.

Here’s what you get when you add Kreayshawn with Grimes, Tragik and Blood Diamonds. A trippy video built around the refrain: “I be that grimy motherfucker.” The group, called L$D, wrote “Don’t Smoke My Blunt Bitch” in under 10 minutes and shot the trippy video in under an hour at a Los Angeles thrift shop. Then, it was loaded to Tragik’s YouTube page.
We’re not sure if this was a one-time thing or if they plan to release more. Either way, a dream come true?
It’s really not wise to watch Kreayshawn’s new video for “Breakfast (Syrup)” unless it’s after 11 am and you’re sufficiently stuffed. The two-and-a-half minute video chronicles an intense breakfast party that involves pancakes, whipped cream, and an unhealthy amount of syrup.
If you didn’t catch it, Kreayshawn says she has all the syrup, which is kind of a lie since a yawning 2 Chainz makes an appearance with even more maple syrup. She knocks it back from the glass like it’s a shot of JD while some other girl pours it over her body in the pantry, creating a stick unattractive mess.
The video is directed by Kreayshawn and I kind of like that we now have an appropriate song for the little-known Breakfast Party. The Oakland-based rapper also set Aug. 14 as the release date for her debut album Something about Kreay.

2 Chainz and Kreayshawn’s creepy music video starts in a poorly-lit house that’s filled with all kinds of taxidermy, tools that hang on the
dungeon basement wall like weapons and caked blood in the drainpipes. Naturally, it’s a music video for a song called “Murder,” by 2 Chinz and Kreayshawn.
The Alex Nazari-directed video starts with 2 Chainz thinking about killing but he settles for dinner instead.
He raps: “Murder, Murder, This Right Here That Murder / Pulled the Car Out The Garage, They Screaming Bloody Murder / Murder, Murder Chalk Line Around Your Daughter / 3 Cell Phones and I Still Don’t Ever Call Her.”
So he’s talking about murder, right?

Tumblr rapper Kitty Pryde actually made the internet explode this week with her nerd-culture track “Okay Cupid.” The suburban teen’s sleepy sounding song is all about drunk dials, planning dream weddings, getting messed up and everything else teen girls think about.
She’s already been hailed as the self-aware, suburban high school version of Kreayshawn, to which Pryde responded: “I don’t think I’m following in her footsteps or anything, but the same kind of thing is happening, like ‘Oh she’s cute, this makes me laugh. It’s not good, but it’s funny.’ You send the link to your friends, and then it’s a big joke. Which is good, that’s what I wanted. But I want people to laugh with me, not laugh at me.”
Pryde raps about some of the youthful crap teens are into, like doodling your crush’s name in a binder and sexting, but she does it with self-awareness that is beyond her age and also with a sense of humour. She’s getting a mixed reaction on YouTube but received positive reviews from The New York Times and Vice.

In case you haven’t heard, Google Glasses are the new big thing. They’re essentially wearable smartphones, because apparently it’s too hard to carry one in your pocket. The glasses can help you navigate to a new cafe, enable a video call with a friend or allow you to take a photo — just by a simple command.
Oh and here’s what different celebrities would look like wearing Google Glasses:
I have to admit that Google Glasses look pretty epic, but one thing I wondered about was whether they’d be a distraction while walking down the street. We get distracted enough looking at our cell phones, what if parts of our vision were actually blocked by an app?
With that in mind, here’s the parody that Google never wanted you to see.
