>Thursday Jukebox Is On The Ho Stroll

>Yes, I said it, “ho.” Now let me explain.

Namie Amuro has a new video out. Well, it’s not really hers as it’s a duet with DOUBLE (who is really one person, but originally the name of a sister act, except it isn’t anymore–see wiki.theppn for more). DOUBLE has got a really good voice, but–how shall I put this politely–her image encourages the viewer to pay attention to things other than her singing…a bit like Mariah Carey (in her current I-know-you-want-my-cookie phase).

Anyway, DOUBLE has a collaboration album coming out soon and her duet with Ms. Amuro, Black Diamond is the lead off single.

A pretty decent song and video, but the choreography and styling! Poor DOUBLE and Namie looked like they should be doing the ho stroll in Hell’s Kitchen (and I swear I’ve seen amateur drag queens do the moves they did during the dance break).

By the way, the chorus can be read in a very interesting way if you apply my crackpot theory about diamonds to it, and look closely at the extras. (I know they’re saying “when you meet a guy who’s fly,” but drag kings do use the male pronoun.)
