Songs about being famous, the perils of celebrity, the paparazzi, being stalked, appearing on magazine covers, the lack of privacy--songs, in short, about the upsides and downsides of being famous for singing songs.

Little Jackie - Black Barbie
Jaime Wolf

Don't Need A Lawyer, I Got Diane Sawyer

Back in 2008, "Black Barbie" was the first video from the debut cd of Imani Coppola's Little Jackie project-- there were better/poppier/more danceable tracks on the record, but the joke here was a little too irresistible.

The video is cheesy, sleazy and extremely lo-fi, and features the titular plastic Negress re-enacting various tabloid scenes & scandals from the lives of Britney Spears, Paris Hilton etc. Depending on your attitude toward TMZ, Perez Hilton and all those, it's either a tribute to, or a scathing social critique of the debased notion of glamour in contemporary culture. It is also, speaking of Christopher's Carpenters post below, an homage to Todd Haynes' all-Barbie Karen Carpenter biopic, SUPERSTAR.

(p.s. I directed it)
