Selena Gomez Sings Britney Spears – ‘Hit Me Baby (One More Time)’ At SXSW

 

And Selena killed it, thank you very much.

After being accused of lip syncing in the movie ‘Spring Breakers‘, Selena and her co-stars Ashley Benson and Rachel Korine proved those smug interviewers a thing or two. Or just one: That Selena can saaaang.

 

Who’s gonna take Selena’s career by the hair and pull it? Make her scream and come out punching? Maybe a cover of “Violet” by HOLE.

 

 

Man, I’d pay cash MONEY to see Selena get dirtied up and yelling, “I told you from the start, just how this would endwhen I get what I want; then I never want it AGAAAAAAAUHHHHN”.  Then she could curse and throw old boyfriends’ names around in some incoherent rant.  Ohhhh…this would be pure heaven.

Who’s with me on this?  Look up there, man.  She could totally werq. It. OUT.

Oh, and Spring Breakers opens April 5th.

HOLE Reunited for NYC Premiere of “Hit So Hard” – Drummer, Patty Schemel Documentary

Eric Erlandson, Patty Schemel, Courtney Love and Melissa auf der Maur

I realize that most bloggers are type, type, typing away about Britney Spears today since her cd dropped and all, but I wanna talk about HOLE, if that’s cool with everyone.  (I may or may not write about Poor Britney later…)

This film looks fascinating. I’ve loved HOLE from the beginning and I still love them. Even with all the personnel changes, they have only gotten better. Yes, I realize this film is primarily about HOLE’s drummer, Patty Schemel’s descent into the hell of addiction and homelessness, but leave it to Courtney to bring the cray-cray”LSD“, aka Lead Singer’s Disease, and make it all about her.  I wouldn’t expect anything else from CLove.

The good news for Patty is that there is a happy ending.  I’d love to see this documentary…are you guys interested?

Today’s Song of the Day – Courtney Love – “Nobody’s Daughter” by Hole

Atta girl, Court.

Courtney Love played Bumbershoot in Seattle tonight with her band HOLE – and I missed it. I’m bummed, but I can tell I’m getting old when I don’t have the energy to stand for 6 hours (at least) in the cold, damp evening at Memorial Stadium underneath the Space Needle.

Memorial Stadium - Mainstage at Bumbershoot

Oh, I’ve been to Bumbershoot before. I’ve seen Beck, The Black Keys, Stone Temple Pilots, and sure–it’s fun.  For awhile.  Until you feel the dark and achy chill of the evening.   I’m just too much of a biddy now to truly enjoy that dirtiness that is nighttime at Bumbershoot.  And when autumn began here in Seattle about 2 weeks ago?  In mid-August.  No. Thankyouverymuch.

I love this song…and I love Courtney. Even (especially?) with all of her Cray-Cray.
