DanCool Video: Star In Your Own Life, Beyoncé. More Nia Sioux, Todrick Hall And ALDC Than You Can Handle.

You know I love a good mash-up.

Especially if it comes with a beat you can dance to.

But toss in body glitter and Single Lady fingers?   And the secret Dance Moms/Toddlerz Connection?  And maybe even your name spelled out in lightbulbs?

Yes, please.  Bonus points immediately given.  No questions asked.

Which would explain this random assortment of videos…some hot off the press and some from the ALDC vault…that make me smile.  And you need to watch them.

Or rewatch them, if that’s how you do.

Like my girl Nia Sioux, who is hash tagging her Star In Your Own Life message to the masses right now, courtesy of the exceptionally fabulous Mikey Minden and some of that diva fierceness she got from her Mama.  Don’t try this at home, kids.

Or youtube king Todrick Hall, who had me at Beauty And The Beat back in 2012.

His latest jam, 4 Beyoncé From Todrick, won me over before I even hit the play button.

You have no idea how difficult it is to find good quality colored crew neck tee shirts that don’t stretch out after you pull them over your head.  (Trust me…the struggle is real.)  And in four different deeply saturated colors that don’t fade?  Take me shopping, dude.

Todrick’s latest video compresses something redoinkulous like 5 albums and 70 Beyoncé songs (…which is pretty much every Beyoncé song in the history of Beyoncé songs…) into a four minute jam that I can’t stop watching.  But more importantly, the video shows that when you strip the guy of his mouse ear hat and floppy cartoon gloves and just focus on what he’s doing…he’s straight up genius.

And speaking of mouse ear hat and cartoon gloves.

Don’t forget Freaks Like Me when Maddie, Mackenzie, Payton and Kendall joined Nia at the Abby Lee Miller School of Dance and Disney Acid Trips for a library dance-off.

They even said “Yolo.”  So there’s that.

Full disclosure:  I don’t remember much about this video after my MomCrush Jill danced, but I’m sure the rest of it was good.

And one last flashback to when it all started for the ALDC gang.

The official Lux music video for It’s Like Summer with Chloe, Brooke and Paige.

It makes me miss Chloe.  And feel very old.

Look at how little they are…

So do enjoy this musical interlude.

And stay tuned for Kendall’s upcoming military video Wear Em Out.

Abby says it’s gonna be yummy.

Dance Moms Video: Freaks Like Me Are Dancing To Beauty And The BEAT. The Todrick Hall ALDC Double Feature.

Wednesday, October 22nd, 2014

Fix your feet.

And then get your Freak On.

It’s a tale as old as time.

And as tired as that weave, girlfriend.

First, it’s Beauty and the Beast as you’ve never seen it.  And if you’ve already seen it, you need to watch it again.  Because it’s that good.

Warning:  This aint’ Yo Mama’s Belle, tho.  Not even close.  But it is somehow now a Dance Moms Six Degrees of Separation kind of moment.

When youtube sensation Todrick Hall first reinvented this Disney classic, I got a little obsessed with the video.  Not gonna lie.  I posted it and predicted even bigger things for him than dancing down the aisle at Target.

Then Dance Moms came along and Holly and my MomCrush Jill became my new obsessions (…which just sounded way creepier than it really is…I swear…) and you know how that’s been going lately.

Finally, the Freaks Like Me video came out and my worlds collided.  Todrick doing his thang while Holly and Jill did back up dancing?

Yes, please.  And then I’ll have some more if there’s any left.

And today we got word that Todrick is getting his own reality show on MTV next year.

Yaaaaas, hunty.  F’realz.

A TV show.  On that TV station that used to play music videos.

Now I don’t want to say I told you so, but I’m pretty sure I may have also mentioned that whole International Year of the Nia thing a few times and…well…let’s just say I’m 2 for 2.

So to celebrate Todrick’s success and give me a chance to ramble on about Dance Moms during their hiatus (…seriously, is it over yet?  It’s been like forever already…) you really need to watch some Disney in da ‘hood and then Freak Out in the library one more time.

Enjoy.

And since there’s no such thing as too much Dr. Beyoncé and Principal Jill

(PhD=Pretty Hot Dancing.)

You’re welcome, world.

Here Comes Honey Boo Boo Rewind: Celebrate 2 Billion Gangnam Style Hits With The Redneck Mashed-Up Classic.

Sunday, June 1st, 2014

Trust me.

Dolla still make me holla.

But 2 billion youtube hits?  That’s Redneckulous.

That’s right.  Park Jae-sangPSY to all us hipsters…and his Gangnam Style dance anthem just crossed the 2 billion views mark.

You heard me.  Billion.  With a ‘B.  Like in ‘Boo Boo.’

Apparently, almost two years later everybody is still doing it Gangnam Style.

So what better excuse to bring back one of the best music video mash-ups evah for your viewing pleasure to celebrate the milestone.

The official Honey Boo Boo Style ReMix.

toddlers-tiaras-yupshes-back-honey-boo-boo-ch-L-kL3kzn-e1345815022830-650x383

You know I still love me some Toddlers & Tiaras.

I miss all that sparkly goodness more every day.  And I’m always up for anything that will help my milkshake bring all the boys to the yard, so to speak.

So naturally, adding some Go-Go Juice to my Gangnam seemed like the next logical step.

Cuz that s*** makes everything even better.

To congratulate Psy, let’s all enjoy another look at Honey Boo Boo Child going Gangnam in the ultimate Korean Redneck ReMix.

It’s like someone took everything inside my brain and made a music video.  Some of my favorite obsessions brilliantly mixed together until they’re smooth as buttah and ketchup.

And, surprisingly, even more tasty the second time they’re served.

It’s like Korean Sketti.  That you can dance to.

And you’re welcome.

Oppa Gangnam Style.

Y’all.
