What's weirder? (Music Edition)

172126__ll_lWhat’s weirder?

A) Renting yourself a little bit o’ Rick Springfield… for $1,000?

B) Finding out America’s newest confessional songwriter-director is some kid named Lindsay Lohan (left)?

C) Bracing for the twin oil-and-water collaborations of Lil Jon and Hilary Duff, and Lil Jon and Jessica Simpson?

Tough call here, folks. I’m gonna lay off Lindsay, because to be honest, the girl’s got talent, and her family situation just makes me sad. And as disturbing as I find the idea of a pay-for-play Springfield, I’m going with C, as the following Lil Jon quote sends me directly into the emotional fetal position: ”Hilary Duff, we did a song for a soundtrack. She has the Material Girl movie coming out and we redid [Madonna’s] ‘Material Girl.”’

(Yeah, of course, I can give you a minute…)

(You okay? You sure?)

I know; I know. I mean, I guess it was inevitable somebody would cover Madge’s mid-’80s classic, but is there an artist who less embodies her brassy, bawdy spirit than The Artist Formerly Known as Lizzie McGuire? To quote another cherished diva, ”Hell to the no!”

    Wow, for only a thousand bucks you can hang with your favorite stars of yesteryear? I’d spend a thousand bucks to kick it with Jim Kelly, talk scifi smack with Sam J Jones, or to tell Brooke Shields that her role in the “Blue Lagoon” was my first childhood hollywood crush. Does anyone else have a few “has-been” celebrities they would pay a grand to hang out with?
    Material Girl is a classic, I’d like to see it covered by women with some staying power rather than a flavor of the week. For example, Gwen Stefani with Missy Elliot. I think Stefani can Madonna’s notes okay and she’s clearly obessed with the 1980’s (“Make Out” off the Rocksteady album practically felt like it was written by Ranking Roger), and Missy could make some great background beats. Just imagine the video!

    I think the real problem is Madonna licensing her song to a teenie bopper. She should consult her Kabbalah minister before making stupid decisions like this.

    Now I would pay a thousand bucks to see Lil Jon and Hilary Duff in the studio together. Could you imagine seeing Hilary and Lil Jon knocking back some crunk juice together. YEAH!!! OKAY!!!

    Sample song lyrics with Lil Jon’s addition:
    Some boys kiss me, What?
    some boys hug me, OKAY!
    If they don’t give me proper credit, What?
    If they don’t give me proper credit, What?
    If they don’t give me proper credit, Okay!
    I just walk away, OKAY!
    that does sound kind of wierd…
