Hell hath frozen over — Kidz Bop has taken on the task of covering Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way”
. In the music vid below, tweens run amok in a shopping mall, all while dancing and singing a super sanitized version of the Mother Monster’s gay anthem
. See which of the pop star’s controversial
lyrics were altered and which got deleted all together.
Don’t shame us muggles, but no one here at Idolator HQ is all that familiar with the Harry Potter
phenomenon. (Blame the fact that none of the movies’ soundtracks featured any regulars from the Top 40.) However, we realize many of you out there are both super excited (and extremely saddened) that the series is wrapping itself up with the release of the final installment this Friday, so luckily the Internet has given us something both camps can enjoy: Harry Potter-themed pop song parodies! And, my oh my, are there a lot
of them. More »
So far in his career, Justin Timberlake has excelled at everything he’s tried — singing, dancing, acting, fashion, comedy
, drama, being sexy
… the list goes on. Golf aside, it turns out we don’t have to worry about JT becoming a professional athlete anytime soon, as evidenced by this video sketch from the upcoming 2011 ESPYs. Hop below to watch Timberlake try and fail and several collegiate sports — but mostly, check out his gams in a skirt as he attempts girls’ field hockey. More »
Over the past couple years or so, we’ve learned to take Lady Gaga’s many, um, eccentricities in stride. Meat dress? Okay. Donning a baby bump mid-performance on live TV? Fine. Songs about loving Jesus’ traitorous disciple, featuring lyrics about ear condoms? Sure, why not! But let’s take a moment to ponder the impression the currently aqua-bobbed fashion icon has on younger minds, shall we? The Fine Brothers have used their “Kids React To” YouTube series to do just that, revealing that the youth of America responds to Lady Gaga — well, just about the same way we do. Watch below.
With superstar mentors like Usher
, Chris Brown,
, you might think Justin Bieber doesn’t seek advice from a onetime (sorry, Deb!) teen phenom like Debbie Gibson. You would probably be right — but that hasn’t stopped the Mega Python-battling
singer from offering her two cents, anyway. The 80′s star has gone from tussling with Tiffany
to touring with her, and now, in a series of short videos titled “What Would Debbie Do?”, the former teen star is offering counsel to current ones like Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift, and Selena Gomez, tackling such issues as obsessive fans and name changes — not to mention a certain couple’s PDA.
Ladies with an attitude, you’ve officially been put on notice! When 9-year-old Robert Jeffrey stepped in front of a blue screen at the Hampton Beach Casino in 1991 to lip sync Madonna’s smash “Vogue” and
rock the choreography from the music video, little did he realize that he’d be creating one of the most amazing four minutes to hit the Internet in modern history. Who are you, little boy, and why aren’t you teaching Britney Spears how to dance
now? Strike a pose below.
It would be an understatement to say that Jack Moore is a fan of Katy Perry. It would even be a misnomer to call him an obsessive
fan of the pop star. With over 4,000 photos and an entire room coated in magazine cut-outs of the “Last Friday Night”
singer, it’s hard to adequately describe just how much he adores Katy Perry, so we’ll let the young British bloke explain his obsession himself in a well-shot mini-documentary, which you can watch below. More »
For all you Lauren Alaina fans disappointed with the results of Wednesday night’s American Idol finale
, you can blame the woman in the following video for Scotty McCreery’s win. According to the woman, who is bubbling over with energy awaiting Ryan Seacrest’s announcement, she voted for Scotty “at least 500 times”. We do not believe this to be a hyperbolic statement whatsoever. See what pure joy (and a possible groin injury) looks like when she finds out her Scotty McHottie won Season 10

Running low on tiger blood? We’ve got good (read: bad) news — there’s now such a thing as a musical collaboration between “Turtleneck & Chain”-wearer Snoop Dogg and Twitter legend Charlie Sheen. The unlikely substance-loving duo has joined forces with Filter’s Rob Patterson (not to be confused with Twilight star Robert Pattinson, whose inclusion really would make our heads explode) for the jokey track “Winner,” also featuring a Carmen Electra cameo for maximum cheese. Check it out below.
It’s been so long since Cascada copped Lady Gaga’s sound — case in point: “Evacuate The Dancefloor,” “Pyromania,” “Night Nurse,”
etc. etc. — we were starting to wonder what was up! But sadly for the “Judas”
songstress, the German dance act appears to have shifted its attention to another chart-topping American pop tart: Katy Perry. Watch Cascada’s “San Francisco” video below, and decide whether or not you think California gurls
should be snapping Natalie Horler & Co. with their beach towels.
