After Justin Timberlake won his award at the VMA’s for his music video, “Mirrors” I had the sudden urge to re-watch the full 8 minutes and 21 seconds again. One because my obsession with Justin is almost unhealthy, second I secretly think NSYNC will come out at any second in his videos, and lastly because the video is too bad not to make fun of. Justin dedicated his award to his dead grandmother at the VMA’s, but I would like to dedicate his hard work for this video to my awful falsetto rendition performance that I do daily in the shower to “Mirrors”. My roommates truly feel inspired, I can tell. During the entire video Justin does not wear a suit and tie but a large trench pea coat and touches the mirrors around him everytime he sings the words, “…its like you’re my mirror.” So you can see how dirty the mirrors must have gotten. Personally, I think the mirrors resembles Justin and Cameron Diaz’s relationship back in 2006, easy to clean yet still dirty and leaves streaks. Justin will always be my curly headed lead singer of the best pop boy band ever. Until he makes that transition back into that lifestyle my twerk team will continue to touch mirrors every chance they get.

Same Love is a song for all the gays out there wanting the hip-hop and rap industry to love them. Surprisingly enough, Macklemore is engaged to a…WOMAN. The song has not stirred anything conversational compared to Miley Cyrus’s performance and obvious drug addiction at the VMA’s. Macklemore has yet to come out of the closet, but in the music video viewers can all see that the white male proposing to his black chocolate thunder of a man resembles Macklemore himself, slicked back hair, pre-pubescent facial hair and the works. If a straight anyone watches this video, the viewer will hate Macklemore even more than “Thrift Shop” playing after every song on the radio. There is a lyric in the song that says, “…don’t press pause, press play.” WRONG. I pressed pause once to get a rum and coke, another to laugh at the main character’s awful acting in the spin the bottle scene, and last time because I felt very uncomfortable that the two gay guys got married in under 5 minutes and 32 seconds. These are all wonderful reasons why the gays cannot get married in the revolutionary country of ‘Merica. I truly cannot wait till good ole Macklemore makes another music video for me to twerk to; until then hats off to my twerk team.
