If you haven’t heard of Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, today is your lucky day. The collaboration of these two is amazing and I just started listening to their music (Thrift Shop Music Video) a couple of months ago, but know I am a huge fan already. Then, today, I find this video, which shows their support for marriage equality, as well as equality in general, but specifically homosexuals. For me, this makes me an even bigger fan, who will show my support not only for their great music, but also for their morals and integrity. Musicians have the power to influence people, and I’m glad Macklemore and Ryan Lewis are doing it in this way.
We support civil rights, and hope WA State voters will APPROVE REF 74 and legalize marriage equality. Visit http://www.music4marriage.org for more info. Support Marriage Equality by ordering the limited edition Same Love vinyl here:http://www.subpop.com/catalog/artists/macklemore_and_ryan_lewis

And a VERY special thank you to Kerri Harrop (Music for Marriage) for her hard work and dedication in the fight for marriage equality and her devoted support to Same Love as an idea, song, and finally now as a music video. “Same Love” and the campaign to approve Ref 74 wouldn’t be the same without you, Kerri.

Being creative and making a statement that catches the attention of over 600,000 people, is one hell of an accomplishment; This video most certainly deserves it. Not only is it entertaining, well thought out, but also represents how all of us as children have dreams of one day finding love and should have the right to share that, no matter what our differences are.

I wanted to tell this famous fairy tale in a new and innovative way, combining familiar top 40′s songs with classic Disney melodies. This story speaks volumes and I think that love is as classic as this fairy tale. It’s time for us to legalize love in all shapes and colors. Please support this movement by posting this on your social media sites.

It’s always fun discovering some new great music. This, is that.
Seeing as I’m in love with almost every video that either Willam or Rhea has been in, I was waiting for this one. And they managed to pull off my favorite video thus far. It is incredibly entertaining and definitely done well! Enjoy!
The newest video for Willam and Rhea Litré’s panty-dropping, leg-spreading new single Let’s Have a KaiKai.
Los Angeles, CA – 9/4/2012 – Recording Artist, Actress and star of RuPaul‘s Drag Race, Willam releases “Let’s Have A KaiKai” with West Hollywood‘s Fiercest Diva and TranzKuntinental Bandmate, Rhea Litré. “Let’s Have A KaiKai” is a parody of Scissor Sisters hit single “Let’s Have A KiKi” released on the “Magic Hour” Album. Willam says, “As part of my volunteer efforts with the LA Gay & Lesbian Center, I’ve been big broth…sistering youngsters who may or may not have some major prostititutional leanings in their past. Rhea Litre and I wanted to show them that sex, including the once taboo “KaiKai,” is OK and is nothing to be ashamed about, especially when it’s used as a tool to get drink tickets. This is their song -The ones in the askew wigs at Donut Time or spitting as they emerge from behind Shakey’s Pizza with a fellow queen. Say it with me- LET’S HAVE A KAIKAI.” The song was approved by the Scissor Sisters’ frontman himself, Jake Shears, when he visited the videos set. Willam adds, “The fact that we weren’t being sued was great but the surprise visit made this kaikai even more satisfying.”
“KaiKai” was written by, Rhea Litré, Willam Belli and Mike Munich. “Let’s Have A KaiKai” was produced downtown in Los Angeles by Markaholic. Bongos By: Francisco DeCun (Tru Cisco) The Music Video was Directed By: Shawn Adeli at Robertson Nightclub in West Hollywood and features some of LA’s top Drag Queens like, famed Porn Director and DJ, Chi Chi Larue. Other Drags included: KiKi Xtravaganza, Anderson Brooks, Allusia, Misty Violet, ChaCha Cache, Mercedez Elektra among others.
When asked why there was no real KaiKai in the Music Video Rhea adds, “We didn’t want to make everyone throw up or ‘DieDie’, this is a fun video and party song that we wanted everyone to actually dance to and enjoy. The Production of both the song and the video speaks for itself. Lets take it to the Dancefloor #AweYeah.”

Apparently, you fall over the side of your balcony and are left dangling by your dress with your panties exposed. In the video below, you can see the 74-year-old woman from Ukraine who had fallen from her balcony on the 8th floor and was lucky enough to have her dress snagged at the 7th floor. The elderly woman, who is a Mariupol resident, had leaned over the balcony too far while trying to yell at street musicians who were being bothersome, according to the woman.
Firefighters were able to help the woman out of this rather embarrassing situation and gave her a sedative before she sent them away. Clearly, this woman was a rather large pain in the ass. In fact, if I were those musicians, I wouldn’t have been more pleased with the outcome.
This girl is pretty awesome. Hopefully this witty one wins the competition. I mean, yes, maybe a signing competition should be about vocals, but I’d vote for comedy any day.
