VidZone Update: What’s Your Style? Gangnam Style? Thought So…

At first mention it sounds like a sub-genre of acid techno (Psy Gangnam Style) or psychedelic grannies in a posse (Psy Gang Nan Style). But after you’ve got yourself over to that other video streaming service that I believe is quite popular… then you will have found it out to be something equally as bizarre! A K-Pop video involving a man in a white suit dancing as if he was on a tiny horse that seems to have caught the imagination of pretty much everyone and his internet savvy mum online.

So if you haven’t seen it (unlikely) or you want to see it in its full big-screen glory (much more likely) then head over to VidZone for that and so very, very much more. Over to “Candice the Informer” for all the news and gossip from the VidZone. Enjoy.

CIARA

Artist Of The Week – Ciara

Who run the world? Girls! To celebrate then return of American singer/songwriter/dancer Ciara, and her upcoming fifth album One Woman Army, VidZone have made the gorgeous RnB star our Artist Of The Week. She exploded onto the music scene with the global hit ‘Goodies’ in 2004 and showed us how to ’1,2, Step’ with Missy Elliott before making us ladies jealous by wooing Justin Timberlake in ‘Love Sex Magic’. And now she’s back with the honest and tender ballad ‘Sorry’. Check out all of these videos and more in her playlist now.

Check out below for all the highlights of the next couple of weeks.

Awesome, now me and the lil’un can annoy the missus with 40″ of Psy (oo-er).

“Heeeeey, sexy lady….” *Rides invisible horse*

 

Gangnam Style really manages to bring a smile on my face. Witnessed just yesterday when they played it before the CL match Manchester City – Borussia Dortmund. Seemed that the audience enjoyed it too.

But I must that the fabulous game by Dortmund produced a far bigger smile. Well … till the very last minute with this stupid penalty decision. That was just “Psy”. ^^

I was told about Gangnam Style a week or two back and subsequently checked it out. All I can think is I don’t get it. I really don’t get it…
