WTF? Wednesday

Katy Perry kissed a girl and liked it, which is great for her. But then she defied gender norms again and butt-raped this MGMT song. The result isn't good for anybody.

Please, musicians, don't attempt to cover a song unless:

  • You really like the original and can unmistakably have fun with a cover.
  • You are pretentious and think you can do the song better.
  • You can add a new sound or musical interpretation to the song. Or,
  • You are Jimi Hendrix, Johnny Cash, or the Detroit Cobras. (Note: Do not go see the Cobras live, it is really disappointing.)

And please, don't just sing over the existing song blatantly coming out of one speaker and post it on youtube.
