Taylor Swift Justice

A few years ago, I found these YouTube skits of people impersonating different celebrities.  They had a skit called “Gaga Vloga” where one of them dressed like Lady Gaga doing a vlog, but her vlog was always something really strange.  It was quite funny.  They had another one called “Taylor Swift Justice” where Taylor Swift was cop and investigated crimes.  This one was hilarious because they actually had a few episodes and in one Swift gets a new partner, Nicki Minaj.

Long story short, these videos disappeared off YouTube.  Perhaps the team that made them disbanded and deleted them or they got in trouble with copyright (which I don’t see how, they weren’t copying anything or defaming anyone)…I don’t know what happened, they just weren’t there any more.  Which was sad.

The other day I decided to just google it to see if I could find them.  And because nothing is deleted from the Internet, I found the first two “Taylor Swift Justice” clips.  I also found another one of their skits “Fierce Factor: Africa” where Lady Gaga hosts a reality show where male models compete to see who is the “fiercest.”  It’s quite funny.  Check them out below:

Sadly, I couldn’t find “Gaga Vloga” or any of their other hilarious clips.  If I do, I’ll post them.

Bang Bang: I Just Realized Something

I was listening to “Bang Bang,” by Jessie J, Ariana Grande, and Nicki Minaj, and I noticed something in the production which I thought was cool but also curious.  It’s rather subtle, but they added a sax or some type of horn to the last chorus of the song.  It starts around 3:02 in the clip below:

Personally, I think the horns add power to the chorus and really fill it out.  It also seems to emphasize the beat more.  So, I’m wondering: why did they only add those horns in the last chorus?  Why not every chorus?

Perhaps it’s like that old saying, too much of a good thing…

Apple Picking Playlist

Whenever my family and I do something and take a road trip, I always make a cd with different songs.  Since we’re going apple picking tomorrow, I made this playlist for our ride, so I thought I’d share…especially because it’s been a long time since I’ve blogged…this semester is legit killing me (#stressed).  Normally I put upbeat/happy songs and a wide range of genres on the playlists for my family so there’s something for everyone, but I think I kind of dropped the ball on this one.  Oh well. I’m an artist.

If you’re wondering why I randomly added “Ew!,” the Jimmy Fallon skit/song, my family like Jimmy Fallon…so it was meant as a joke…although I do think the song is actually quite good because of will.i.am’s production.  Plus, Jimmy Fallon rapping as a teenage girl is hilarious.
