Spotted: B in a Music Video

Posted by Marisa July 1st, 2009 at 10:30am In Gossip Girl The Funk

Since it’s music video week, how’s about posting the video for Cobra Starship’s new song, “Good Girls Go Bad,” which features vocals by Leighton Meester. Sure, why not?

Okay, now I don’t watch Gossip Girl OR listen to Cobra Starship, so the analysis is all up to you. Is this fun and self-aware, or are they tools and poseurs?

Things to consider:

*The white (lensless?) glasses.
*All of Mr. Starship’s incessant pointing.
*Ms. Starship’s bionic silver eye.
*Ms. Meester’s vocal chops that don’t seem to be auto-tuned…until the end.
*The melody’s resemblance to Sean Kingston’s “Fire Burning on the Dance Floor” at the chorus.
*The fact that Kara DioGuardi had to help make a song that sounds like a Sean Kingston song.
*Rap breakdown.

Verdict?

    That’s not fair. The Hives have a completely different kind of schtick.
