This was NO April's Fool's joke!!!
Regina Spektor and her singer-songwriter husband Jack Dishel have welcomed a baby into this beautiful world, and it's a…
At the Grammys this Sunday - don't look for this face among the sea of talented people.
But she's not ditching the show for any regular reason, but rather for one spectacular one!
The singer has announced that she is certifiably PREGNANT!!!
Check out the bombshell news she dropped on the world on her Facebook today. She wrote:
The queen is back! Regina Spektor has dropped a new single on the world, and it's ah-MAZING!
You've Got Time is the theme song to the upcoming Netflix original series Orange Is The New Black. And if the song is anything to go by, the show is going to be pretty darn addictive!
Ch-ch-check out the video (above) and get hooked on the song!
Then, according to Regina, you'll get just as hooked on the show. She says Orange and its creator Jenji Kohan inspired the song completely, explaining:
We adore Regina Spektor's latest album What We Saw from the Cheap Seats, but there is one track that blatantly stands out with its divergent style, unique composure, and pure emotional core…
And that somber, shiver-inducing tune is How.
Ch-ch-check out the soul piercing track along with it's newly released — and JUST as lovely — music video (above)!
We say How is divergent in style because while it remains true to Regina's signature, alt-pop-piano tinkering, staccato sound, the song takes on a whole different rhythm and melody structure than what we're used to from RS… it slightly reminds us of an old blues song!
And that emotion! You can hear it
AND these supreme stars are just some of the multitude of mega talent that will be taking part in the music video awards orgy-extravaganza that is the MTV Video Music Awards 2012!
Katy Perry has been nominated for Video of the Year with her fantastical adventure-time vid for Wide Awake, and Rihanna's dark and twisty tale of emotionally (and physically) damaging romance AKA We Found Love will be competing alongside!
Riri is also getting props in the best video category for the smooth and somber visuals for her and Drake's Take Care, and M.I.A. will be throwing her galang-spiced towel in for her death-defying CRAY vehicular stunts in the desert-set, dash-board banging vid for Bad Girls!
And, rounding out the Video of the Year nominations for 2012 is the paint-splattered vid for Gotye's Somebody I Used to Know.
Ooooo we can't WAIT to see what ridiculous schemes MTV is cooking up for our viewing pleasure!
