Looking at some of the comments this video by Jenna Marbles got on Youtube, I feel compelled to clarify that she is not actually serious (although that should be pretty obvious). I also think I should give anyone who is actually reading my blog fair warning that she swears quite a bit. Then again, if you’re familiar with even a few of the artists she talks about here, you’re probably used to that.

That said, this girl is HILARIOUS. I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve watched this video and many others of hers since I discovered her, but they never cease to make me laugh. They’re so unpretentious, and so true. She’s also very, very different from what she looks like at first glance, so you should definitely check some of her other stuff out if you liked this video.

She really is a fan of rap and hip-hop music and I am (somewhat) as well, but I totally agree with what she says in this video. Tupac was one of the greatest and his music was really inspirational. There are lots and lots of other good artists in this genre who convey a real message with their music, but you gotta admit, some of this stuff is just ridiculous.

Like that dumb Nicki Minaj song she talks about that’s playing on the radio all the time right now. I’ve never listened to that song all the way through and I don’t want to. Even my 14-year-old brother doesn’t want to. Maybe it’s just because I’m not the kind of person who can enjoy rhythm and melody without listening to the lyrics. Or maybe the song is just stupid. I can’ t really hate on Nicki Minaj, though. I like some of her stuff and she and Rihanna made a tribute to Steve Jobs out of their song Fly that I absolutely loved. She’s a kook, but a cool one (like Lady Gaga).

But I just don’t see Drake’s appeal anymore.  At first I really liked his songs. Then he started doing the same stuff over and over again and I was like “Okay, he’s clearly a studio artist who would sound awful if he couldn’t use auto-tune as a crutch, but what else is new?”  After that, I stopped being able to tell the difference between most of his songs. Jenna must have made this video before The Motto was released, or else I’m sure she would have bit into that one like a See’s chocolate. Y.O.L.O. You Only Live Once. First of all, I cannot for the life of me understand why that is such a huge revelation to so many people. All he did was take “carpe diem” and turn it on its head to mean “you only live once…so go get drunk and high and catch all the STD’s you can”. The entire song is thoroughly unoriginal as it is, but “the motto” is so old that it was actually written in Latin first. Come on. Really?

The parts about Ace Hood and Pitbull just made me burst out laughing and wish I could give Jenna a high five. Perfectly done. She has another video in which she does an impression of Pitbull if you’re interested.

All in all, she puts a witty and entertaining spin on everything from the institution of marriage to reality TV. I apologize in advance for getting you addicted to her. (But not really.)
