Congratulations to Lena for winning Eurovision with 'Satellite' - watch the official video now!

For once Eurovision got it right. They actually chose the best song as the winner, and, in fact, the one ScopiSat wanted to win. Lena is a 19 year old singer, who sings with an inexplicable Cockney accent and for that reason comes off as a sort of brilliant Eurotrash Kate Nash. For that reason there is RIFE SPECULATION (read:  some drunk on Twitter) that she learned English by listening to Lily Allen songs.  If you don't believe us, check out the official video for the German winner:

Rihanna gets all saucy in 'Te Amo' music video - watch the premiere now!

We made no big secret of our loathing for Rihanna's new North American single 'Rockstar 101,' but luckily the rest of the world gets 'Te Amo,' the much more palatable jam from the sexy singer.  Sexy, here, is the operable word, as RiRi gets all kinds of lesbo-racy up in her new clip.

Some vital points:
1.  The video is CONTROVERSIAL because there is extended girl-to-girl eye contact and a smattering of lingering hugs
2.  Ri looks great
3.  The 'other girl' looks great
4.  It was shot in France
5.  The song is still kind of crap :(

Out June 11 in Europe/elsewhere
