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?
