Song of the Week

"California Gurls" - Katy Perry featuring Snoop Dogg
So many reasons to hate this song
1) It's by Katy Perry
2) It's another attempt by her to get her songs in ads by the local tourism board. She got Vegas, now California, next a horrible song about the "concrete jungle where dreams are made of." Oh wait, that horrible song is already out there.
3) Girls is spelled with an U instead of an I, further contributing to popular music's deleterious effect on grammar in our society.
4) For those of you who thought MTV doesn't show music videos anymore, on my on-screen program guide 8:00 to 8:04 last night was carved out to show this video. They show one video and it's this one? (Note: it was the premiere because I don't see the video on youtube yet.)
5) Snoop's horrible verse which includes a line stolen from Vince's Slap Chop commercial (2:30 in)
6) A crude reference to the premature evacuation. "Sun-kissed skin so hot, will melt your popsicle"

I hate this song and Snoop has never had a good song unless it's produced by Dre or another super producer (Neptunes, Timbaland, etc). I dare you to prove me wrong. Remember when he was on No Limit Records?

I've disliked Katy Perry ever since I saw her on American Idol. She was extremely bitchy and had no right to be. I don't consider her to be a "real" singer. And I'm enraged by the word "gurl".
