Singer/songwriter Skylar Grey has a nasty new song out and I love it. In the hypnotic “Final Warning,” Skylar informs her cheating boyfriend that she’s driven his truck into a lake. Then she tells him she’s going to go to the kitchen to fetch a knife. It’s clear she’s not going to use it to make a sandwich for him. I keep thinking that if the truck-bashing Carrie Underwood of “Before He Cheats” got back together with the bastard after all, “Final Warning” would be the next song she’d sing.
You can listen to it here … [UPDATED JUNE 28 TO ADD THE NEW VIDEO INSTEAD OF THE EXPIRED SONG LINK]:
… but you should also buy it on iTunes or Skylar will cut you.
Meanwhile, in the television world, Whoopi Goldberg, one of the hosts of The View, made it clear that she doesn’t give a fuck about cast changes on the show. Her words, not mine. As she said to Us magazine:
“Let me tell you this about The View: I take a paycheck every other week. That’s all I do. I could give a sh-t what comes. I do my job — I have a contract. That’s where I stand. I don’t give a fuck.”
Remember how Whoopi’s character channeled Patrick Swayze’s dead character in the movie Ghost? Well, Whoopi wasn’t acting, because she just channeled my attitude from every day of the five years I worked at Lehman Brothers. (I wasn’t dead but I was dead inside.) I’m impressed, Whoopi!
I wonder if Barbara Walters, a host and an executive producer of The View, is pissed off at Whoopi about this. Let’s pretend she is, so that I can use this clip from Ghost to send her a warning.
I think both Skylar and Whoopi would enjoy my middle finger emoji earrings, don’t you?
