Carly Rae Jepsen And Gotye Collide For One Awesome Mashup!

Okay, okay. We know. We’ve probably heard enough of both songs by now, but THIS mashup is a MUST listen!!!

California indie duo Pomplamoose oh so seamlessly mixed together the chord of Carly Rae Jepsen’s Call Me Maybe and the melody and lyrics of Gotye’s Somebody That I Used To Know into a ball of amazingness!

Check out the mashup, titled Do Not Push, (above)!!

SO great!!! Now, as for some fun facts about the duo?

They don't lip-sync when recording their videos and, if they sound familiar, their music's been featured in commercials for Toyota and Hyundai!

Wander through Kimbra's fantastical land (above)!

Hearts ALL OVER this one!!

CNN Reported Gotye Killed Himself With A 9MM Pistol! THIS DID NOT HAPPEN!

Filed under: Music MinuteOops!PinkTwitter

Gotye Someone That I Used To Know CNN False Reporting Suicide

What the…?

How does the world's pre-eminent cable news network make this kind of mistake???

CNN incorrectly reported on Sunday that Gotye committed suicide by shooting himself in the head with a 9mm handgun!!

Gotye, of course, denies reports of his untimely demise. He tweeted:

Ha! Nice Pink reference!

Tim Shiel, a musician currently touring with the "undead" artist, also joined in on the fun. He tweeted:

We're glad you and your bandmates thought the ordeal was HIGHlarious!

Still, we're worried about overworked guys and gals at CNN — what exactly went wrong?

Bad vetting, it seems.

This is the story CNN iReport "broke":

"At 4:32 AM EST, it was reported that Gotye had shot himself in the head with a 9mm handgun… He was pronounced dead at 4.45AM, and the investigation concluded that the cause of death was suicide."

Wow!! Get your facts straight, CNN!

Everyone is prone to messing up dates or misspelling names once in awhile but, when you rush to inform the world that a music superstar has taken his own life, you had better make sure you know what you're talking about!!!

Talk about some news source that we used to trust!!

We can only imagine this "breaking news" breaking the hearts of Gotye's fans, friends, and family!

What if Gotye's mother was watching CNN when the horrible misinformation scrolled by on the ticker??

Carly Rae Is STILL Topping The Billboard Hot 100!


Yeah! We didn't think she would be going anywhere!

And obviously, we were RIGHT!

For the second week in a row, Canadian cutie pie Carly Rae Jepsen has once again remained in the number one spot of the Billboard Hot 100 with her smash single, Call Me Maybe, after selling 292,000 downloads this week alone!

Meanwhile, Gotye and Kimbra remain steadfast behind her in the number two seat with their equally catchy collaboration, Somebody I Used To Know, while Maroon 5 comes in at number three with Payphone and Katy Perry leapt from nine to four with her latest, Wide Awake!

Well done, gurl! Let's see how long your reign lasts this summer!

We have a feeling it might be a while!

Ch-ch-check out the rest of Billboard Hot 100 top ten…AFTER THE JUMP!

Karmin Gets Gotye!

Filed under: Music MinutePerezTVKarmin

They get him soooo good…

The delightful duo - well trio - that is Karmin boarded the Gotye cover bus and rode it alll the way down to amazeballz town!

While Karmin's version does kinda lack the the heart and honesty of the original, it's definitely a punchy, slap-in-your face take on its mellow master!

So HUH, YEAH join Karmin as they mold Gotye's Somebody I Used To Know into their very own, musical shape (above)!
