Now then — if Bobby Newberry is reading this I want him to not take any offense to the following commentary as it all ends on a very positive note: “Dirrty Up” is very gay. Like — very, very gay.
Not only are there former Pussycat Dolls in the video (including Melody Thornton, or more appropriately ‘She Who Musn’t Sing When In A 5 Mile Radius of Nicole Scherzinger’), but there is a screenshot of Grindr (the gay social networking hookup app) in the beginning (perhaps product placement?) and that gay YouTube black kid.
But also — HELLO lipgloss, Bobby! And dancing, and abs, and gay, gay, gay.
Now — all of those things being said (yes, remember I said don’t be offended) “Dirrty Up” is certainly catchy. It gets me very excited for the summer, low-cut bathing suits, and big sunglasses. In essence — it gets me excited for being gay.
