First of all, Happy Birthday to Donna Troy, Wonder Woman's younger sister/magical avatar/adopted younger sister she rescued as an infant from a fire/whatever the fuck she is this week! And while not the latest, certainly the greatest Wonder Girl! (In the 1978 DC Comics Calendar, they actually gave each hero a birthday!) I've been obsessed with Donna since I first learned of her existence... Wonder Woman has a sidekick too?!... and her depiction in New Teen Titans won me over for life! Too bad she'd one of the most fucked over characters in comics (had her origin completely scrapped and redone, then undone again, lost her husband and infant son, DIED, came back to life, has been forced to star in shitty books...
But... I still luv ya, baby!
So today saw the release of "Til The World Ends (The Femme Fatale Remix)" by Britney Spears featuring Nicki Minaj and Ke$ha. The hell?! This is the second week in a row that Brit Brit's been involved in a fairly nonsensical collaborative remix, after last week's "S&M" remix with Rihanna. I'm getting tired of getting a rapper to spit a rhyme on your album track and calling it a remix for the single release. Why can't you just get the rap on the album version to start with? Then, in a reversal, just as Britney simply re-sang Rihanna's second verse and chorus on "S&M," Ke$ha just re-sings the bridge on "Til The World Ends." She doesn't really add anything! Anyway... see for yourself:
Once again, Britney's album just came out a couple of weeks ago! You're telling me this couldn't have been arranged before that?
I can see the "remix" being necessary for Katy Perry's "E.T." because that's the fourth single from that album, which came out last summer/fall. PS, did you catch her and Kanye on American Idol? (See yesterday's blog. I DO NOT WATCH American Idol willingly!)
At least, every so often someone talented pops up on it.
Anyway, not much else going on, so I'm leaving it at that!
