To be fair, if you got the chance to ride a real hoverboard, would you want to get off? Wiz “Marty McFly” Khalifa didn’t either…only problem? he’s not Michael J. Fox and Emmett Brown was no where to be found. Next thing you know he’s pinned on the ground by a bunch of cops.
Taylor took to Tumblr to explain, “The Mom-Croon – (noun) A dance move invented at the 2014 Grammy Awards. To sway, perform, and sing along to a song in an extremely emotional or sentimental way, possibly incorporating hand gestures. Eyes closed, lost in the music. The way your mom gets taken away by a tune from her high school days, glass of red wine in hand, shuffling around the room as her teenage kids roll their eyes in disdain. Cynics may judge the Mom-Crooners (MC’s as they are commonly referred to in the dance world) as it is a form of dance only perfected by those willing to be absolutely swept away by the feels you get when you hear a certain song. Those who know how to Mom Croon cannot see the eye rolls of haters. They have reached a level of musical transcendence that is hater-proof. Once you perfect the mom croon, you are truly free.
Used in a sentence: “Oh look, Taylor’s being embarrassing again– just mom-crooning away in the corner by herself because Sometimes by Britney Spears came on. Oh God. Now she’s crying.”*
Aw yisssss. Bring it ON.
Oh and don’t forget to keep Party Hits locked, cocked, loaded, it’s my dance battle station of choice 🙂
Good luck and lets go get ’em!
**I’m going to assume you can Mom-Croon with or without tears…preferably without.
If Taylor is using a CSCG, I’d like to volunteer Lara Marie Schoenhals to take over programming duties.
Lara went to see Taylor Swift in Santa Clara and by the looks of her hilarious (kinda NSFW because of language) parody video, T’s celeb cameo bit may have jumped the shark. It started out really strong with Team USA and her girl squad but doesn’t it feel like someone is making last minute calls after Joan and Julia?
Not that either of these ladies is anything less than spectacular. Julia is “America’s Sweetheart” and seems nice in just about every acting role she’s ever been in so she’s gotta be great in real life right? and maybe Joan and Taylor are BFFs who spend long nights waxing about The Bangladesh Liberation War??
But be honest, when you first found out about Taylor bringing Joan out on stage, didn’t it feel like the couple pictured below?

Oh the irony of banning a song about gas emissions given this…
According to Billboard, China’s Ministry Of Culture has banned “Fart” by Chang Csun Yuk and 119 other songs, including Britney Spears, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Backstreet Boys, and a lot of Owl City (who knew?) because they “harm public morality.” Here’s the full list.
Do they really not know when something is banned it only makes you want that something more?? or maybe it’s a fantastic marketing scheme?? because now I’ve got to hear “Fart”! If you find it, email me, firstname.lastname@example.org
PS – MC Hotdog is actually slick. Seriously give him a chance…Someone ought to be listening since China can’t. 🙁
I dismissed Carly initially thinking she was just another popstar whose voice could only be appreciated by tweeners and dogs because of the high frequency usually associated with a saccharin sweet voice but I was wrong. Either that or I’ve totally misjudged tweeners, dogs and saccharin.
You may have thought Lenny Kravitz’ #PenisGate would be the most humbling moment of the week but that was before Macklemore released his new song Growing Up. In it he references Langston Hughes, A Raisin In The Sun but Langston didn’t write it, Lorraine Hansberry did. This may not be the biggest faux pas to you but it’s the principal.
Firstly, wouldn’t you know who wrote it if you did read it? Wouldn’t you check? Especially out of respect given the sensitivity of cultural appropriation vs cultural appreciation?
I’m embarrassed to admit I haven’t read it, I didn’t know who wrote it, I make mistakes and humiliate myself constantly…but I’d rather have my pants split on stage for all the world to see than pretend to be something I’m not…especially in a song everyone is going to hear.
