Santigold Is Clearly Not A Fan Of Lady Gaga Or Katy Perry

Santigold is offering a free download of her new single “Big Mouth”, off her upcoming album Master Of My Make-Believe, but it’s the video that you’ll really want to pay attention to. The vid (as well as the song itself) reminds us of M.I.A.’s /\/\/\Y/\ period, what with the similar tribal/synth sounds and crudely drawn DIY animations. Another characteristic she shares with M.I.A.? Blasting pop stars, as Santigold’s clip takes shots at both Lady Gaga and Katy Perry. Watch below.

A caricature of Gaga as a mermaid appears, and Katy Perry in her nude cloud pose is seen with a “blah blah blah” speech bubble (in addition to a “TGIF” reference). Santigold also appears to not care much for Lindsay Lohan, as the starlet is depicted topless with a cigarette in her hand. Watch out, Santigold, Lohan bites back!

Santigold – “Big Mouth”

What do you think of Santigold targeting Katy and Gaga? Is this just a way to get attention, or do these pop stars need to be knocked down a few pegs from time to time?

    I like Santigold and frankly don’t give a **ck who she’s talks smack about but this song/video has clearly been influenced by M.I.A.

    These pop stars need to be knocked down… Aside from adele, all theses ladies (gaga, Katy, Rihanna, Taylor, and Nicki) are what’s wrong with the music industry

  • aseifu

    um shes just like MIA nothing original here oddly enough both MIA and Santigold hate gaga …
    and to Gabriel
    adele is overexposed and although her lyrics are good they arent anything ground breaking

    i am tired of adele fans always saying that everyone else is bad for the music industry

    Good thing this one is free because nobody would pay for it

    Santi is completely right–all these starlets and skanky pop stars really need to be knocked down a bit. It’s just too much already… As for the similarity to M.I.A., well, they work with the same people–obviously there’s going to be a crossover. But if you listen to her music as a whole, you’ll see that there are so many other influences as well. She’s a chameleon.

    Oh, and I would totally pay for “Big Mouth” and plan on buying her album, Mr. Example, so looks like you’re wrong.
