“Jai Ho” (Live on Ellen) (Video)

    I wonder what it’s like to be a Pussycat Doll. You used to spend your time writhing onstage for the likes of Charlie Sheen, and then you become a “singer” and your career basically becomes an escalation of sexual exploits in videos because even you know that no one is buying your records for the music. Then whoever is pulling your strings decides the only way you can stay viable is to cover a perfectly fine song from Slumdog Millionaire (“Jai Ho”) that didn’t need your verses to translate to American audiences. Then you have to go on Ellen and perform the song like it means anything to you when obviously you don’t care about the song in the least, but you are only there because it beats being in front of Jeremy Piven every night. It must be a sad existence. [Mr. World Premiere]
