remnantsoflove: operationitunes: Let’s kick off the New Year with something to wiggle to: “Sexy and I Know It” by LMFAO. What I love about LMFAO is that they’re shamelessly exploiting the shit out of the American public, making millions from doing so. They don’t pretend, as many Pop stars do, that they’re making timeless, innovative, heart-wrenching songs birthed from incredible talent....
