Snap Judgment: Eve's 'Tambourine' video

Keeping it really real, PopWatchers, when it comes to busting a move, I am a humble foot solider. If a commanding officer instructs me to shake my groove thing, shake my ass, or shake shake shake my booty, I have no choice but to follow orders. So with that in mind, I’m definitely in the target audience for Eve’s delightful current single, "Tambourine," a feverish track that’s all about putting one’s jingly little drum in motion.

The question remains, though, how is the corresponding video, which premieres today at Yahoo Music? It all starts out promisingly enough, with Eve’s vinyl-clad maids busting into our heroine’s cotton-candy bedroom and engaging in some fiercely frenetic choreography. But things devolve from there. An emerald-hued backyard tableau in which the rapper rocks a fabulous feathered fan is abandoned all too quickly, and subsequent setups involving Eve cruising through the city streets in her car and strolling a palm-tree-lined road look low-rent instead of colorfully campy. I suppose the final setup, which takes place at a raucous, balloon-filled party, is all right, but, that said, Eve should really avoid any kind of choreographed routines — unless she’s willing to return to Boot-y Camp and learn the basics. What think you, PopWatchers?

    Great single, but …
    … is this an outtake from “In Living Color” circa 1991?

    Finally there is a video! I have been playing this track for 2 months now.
    There were good parts to the video, and some boring. Just like you said. Oh Slezak, I miss the days when you would post on stuff like this instead of 5000 Idol posts a day. Hopefully I can expect more like this instead of a post in July that says “Jordin’s single is out of the top 10. What does this mean for the future of Idol?” or “On The Scene: Sanjaya plays a kid’s birthday party in Birmingham”

    like the song, but the video, not so much. Does anyone know why Eve is sunbathing in the beginning?? And Slezak’s right, Eve should never ever dance again. ever.
