This Week on VH1

You might think that I watch a lot of TV. VH1 specifically. Not true - I just run a treadmill at the gym for 20+ minutes. That's pretty much all it takes to keep up with America's favorite cable adult contemporary music video channel.


Only two things worth pointing out this week, really:

Maroon 5 - "Won't Go Home Without You"
Lame song.

Bad haircut, Adam (still!).

But nice pants. O so very nice pants.


Sara Bareilles - "Love Song"
I have to say I think I'm in love with Sara Bareilles. Have you seen this video? She's just so damn cute.
She's the ultimate girl next door. When I see this video, I envision her living in the apartment across the hall. She'd be the neighbor that plays piano and bakes in her spare time. Too busy for a boyfriend. We'd become friendly and she'd occasionally bring over cupcakes or have me sample a new casserole recipe she's working on.

One night she'd come over and we'd watch something on Bravo or HGTV and have a bottle of wine and then she'd say something funny and suddenly I'd lean over and kiss her and she'd jump up from the couch saying "But I thought you were supposed to be gay!" and I'd fumble and say "But I think I'm in love with you!" and "But you're on my List*!" and she'd leave in a hurry and then it would be awkward for a few days and we'd avoid each other in the building and then she'd make it big and move to LA, and then a few years would go by and she'd be in town and invite me to her show and then backstage afterwards we'd joke about that one night I kissed her and we'd laugh and then all would be cool because, you know, she'd be like that.
* The "List" is of the women many Gays Would go Straight For (in my case): Jessica Alba, Jennifer Aniston, Cate Blanchett, Rachel Weisz, sometimes Natalie Portman and now Sara Bareilles.

I have never heard that song and need to go check it out, but the part that made me laugh out loud is:

"We'd become friendly and she'd occasionally bring over cupcakes or have me sample a new casserole recipe she's working on."

Because I did that with a guy who lived across the hall from me many many years ago. Way too funny!

FitnessNerd said...

Wait a minute? You're gay?

;)

Big Daddy said...

That's awesome.

classyandfancy said...

I think you should make me cupcakes. Hawaiian Punch flavored cupcakes.

OH SAD!

I really, really like the song "won't go home without you" It's my favorite on the CD. The video is eh though.

Anything on Adam looks great as far as I'm concerned. Haircut, Pants, Shirts or me.

Sara - I have her CD, can't even bring myself to listen to it.

Perhaps I'll give it another whirl because you said so. I just can't help thinking that this is another arbitrary girl with a piano. And really, does the world need another cornflake girl?

Airam said...

Oh I love that song! I remember hearing it for the first time last year ... I need to check out more of her music.

Jules said...

Personally, I'd prefer Adam with his pants off.
Jules
House of Jules

Mighty Dyckerson said...

Which chick made you gay to begin with?

I'm Not Carrie Bradshaw said...

I totally can imagine this movie. It'd be perfect for Lifetime!

carolyn says said...

d said...

but what about scarlett johannson? or frances mcdormand? or kate beckinsale? or gina torres? i'd go straight for any of 'em. put 'em all in a room together and game over.

JUSTIN said...

Maroon 5 was on Leno last night (I was forced to watch it at gunpoint) and saw them "perform" their new "song". Simply terrible. Anyways for a split second I thought his haircut was cool and thinking I would get mine cut like his...then I regained my sanity and turned off the TV, swearing to never turn the evil device on ever again.

Oh, and that girl is cute too!

Dr. Kenneth Noisewater said...

I have that same casserole, baking, neighbor fantasy about her too! Only in mine we go at it like a couple of spider monkeys.

Hex said...

Maybe it's just me, but I'm feeling the need for clarification on 'Sometimes Natalie Portman'

(which btw, would make a fantastic band name, if ya need one)

Loaf said...

I'm impressed, you've put a LOT of thought into this one :)

Rachel Weisz; good call!

Dr. Kenneth Noisewater said...

I'm not in the "What People Are Saying About the Cherry Ride" section anymore. : (

I've been holding down tranny quotes on there for like 2 years, and then "poof!" I'm out.

: (

ReckenRoll said...

Why aren't I on the list?
I'm famous.

Are you calling me fat?

Chelsea Talks Smack said...

This might sound strange. But....the way your describe Sra Bareilles: playing piano and baking too busy for a boyfriend ect...you sorta described me. and her and I are music kindred souls. LOVE HER.

Dop said...

i listened to a little Maroon5 this morning getting ready for work. i loves me some adam levine. damn those skinny dark-haired boys...

blythe said...

are you all blind? have you seen her nose? fine. she's cute in a weird looking normal person kind of way - not what i look for in a VH1 approved artist. p.s. i talked up that song months ago before starfucks started playing it like crazy. in the meantime, i would totally go gay for frances mcdormand.

Frontier Psychiatrist said...

I'm actually surprised to see Jessica Alba on the list.

She seems like the embodiment of a 13-year-old's wet dream. Acting skills and all.

Wow... you actually saw music videos on VH1. I just do not believe it.

Mood Indigo said...

Funny that you posted about Maroon 5 and Sara together - they are long-time touring partners. And also funny that you have such a crush on her - I used to go see her in L.A. all the time before she got all famous and stuff, with a group of guy friends. They were ALL enamored - including the one that would later come out - and the ones that still haven't. There's just something about her - I think she's the closest thing I can have to a girl crush...

Honeyspy said...

How much do I love the fact that you have an 'inappropriate crushes' tag? <3 <3
