Sarah was assigned to cover the 2012 MuchMusic Video Awards on Sunday for AOL Music Blog.

This was mostly fine because it was basically a Carly Rae Jepsen coming out party and she’s relatively onside for the CRJ.

She was somewhat less onside for the latest crop of Much VJs (who are these people?), but whatcha gonna do? MuchMusic is firmly demographic television these days.

When Pop Stars Go Goth (Katy Perry, Madonna, Christina Aguilera)

Pretty much every successful musician has a “dark” period, which often results in some of their best music.

For a certain segment of pop starlets, however, their dark periods are more often characterized not by dark music, but by dark clothes.

This phenomenon of pop-ettes “going goth” isn’t a new one and Sarah collected some examples of this game of gloomy dress-up for AOL Music Blog.

Click here to read all about Madonna, Katy Perry and Christina Aguilera‘s “goth” phases.

How Kidz Bop De-Pervertizes Katy Perry Lyrics

Kidz Bop 21 is free of ANYTHING that would scare your kids

Kidz Bop 21 is free of ANYTHING that would scare your kids

There’s a thing called the Kidz Bop series and it’s a really big deal. Basically, producers get a bunch of next generation Disney kids together and they sing reworked versions of popular Top 40 radio hits with all the sex, drugs, violence, innuendo, negativity, religion, and any other potentially controversial language smoothed out of the songs and usually replaced with the words “dance” or “dance, yeah!”

Sarah spent an unnaturally long time listening to the kidz-ified versions of songs by LMFAO, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Maroon 5, Rihanna and a pile of others on the recently released Kidz Bop 21. She then compared the kidz versions to the originals to find out how youth-friendly they’ve been made.
