The-Dream: Trilogy (Video)

A wise man named Dr. Steve Brule once said, “You can’t kiss a beautiful girl and have a cool uncle.” This applies to all aspects of life. For instance, you can’t be a brilliant singer/songwriter and producer and dance. Looks like The-Dream may not have come to terms with Dr. Brule’s “rule”, judging by whatever he’s trying to do in the first part of this “Trilogy” video.

You can’t really complain, though, as musically he’s doing his best Prince impression (which is a very good impression) via “Yamaha,” which then bleeds into “Nikki Pt.2” and the “Cry Me A River” cribbing “Abyss” (complete with crying/watery imagery). Just listen to the jams, folks, and be happy he’s serving ’em up!

But really – you don’t see Yeezy pretending he can dance after that “Gold Digger” video, do you? He already has a cool uncle, and he knows it.

Wait a minute, Dream, WTF is going on with that girl in the shower? #creepedout

The Goddess Returns

Is she the crowned princess of dance music? Nope, think bigger. Queen? Closer, but still light years off. Goddess? Yeah, that’s the ticket!

Aphrodite, to be exact. No, that’s not just the name of her new (and 11th) album (Try counting that many albums on your fingers, little babies! No? Add a toe!), that’s actually Kylie’s literal identity. She is, in fact, the goddess Aphrodite. She is just chilling on earth for the past 20 years or so, so you’d better enjoy this shit while she’s dishing it out, before she goes back into outer space where all the other gods party without us!

Wanna hear her new album for free online before you trip over yourself trying to whip out your debit card to buy 10 copies in a week? NPR is here for you.

Wait, I mean, here for you.
