Pop Up Video is Back! And With More Shade. YES!
Ok if you were born after 1990, you might not remember this too much but for us older than that folks, we recall VH1’s “Pop Up Video.” I used to LOVE that show, and I mentioned it when I talked about old shows I miss. I love behind-the-scenes stuffs. I’m the kind who will sit on the couch and watch “Making Ofs” for hours on DVDs. I think it’s because I’m nosy in general. Finding out insider info of stuff is interesting to me, so naturally, Pop Up Video is my kind of show. And when it ended in 2002, I did a *wall slide*! But it’s back now!
And last night, they did a 2-episode sneak peek on VH1, and I had a TV-gasm!
It kicked off with a Britney Spears video, “Till the World Ends,” and they didn’t miss a beat. The commentary was all types of random and awesome. BUT it was snarky as always, if not more. Lemme tell you… there was sooo much shade being thrown in those pop ups. Especially when they played Lauryn Hill’s “Ex-Factor.” I won’t give y’all all the facts but apparently, that song was about Lauryn’s relationship with Wyclef Jean. I HAD NO CLUE! Throw in more than a coupla comments bout Lauryn’s mistressy ways with Rohan and her lack of work and Pop Up Video won me over ALL over again. That show is a gossipy summabish and I LOVE EVERY PARTS OF IT! YESSSS!
It did allow me to #payamish to old Lauryn Hill. The one who didn’t dress like her address was 123 Cardboard Box Under the Bridge Blvd.
They also showed “Coming Home” with Diddy, Dawn Richards and Not Estelle. That was a good one cause Diddy’s divadom was kind of put on blast. And Cee-Lo’s “F*** You” also made me cackle.
I’m SO excited for this series to be back, y’all. You don’t even understand. And these 2 episodes I watched got my hyped up. VH1 knows how to keep me watching. And honestly, if they need any more writers for their Pop Up Video series, they need to look no further. I could bring all of the shade! *slides resumé to someone*
Oh and I was perusing the Pop Up Video site and found this CLASSIC of Michael Jackson’s “Black and White.” YES LAWD!!! Enjoy:
Pop Up Video will be playing on weekdays at 12/11 CST and 12:30/11:30 CST. And they’re on Twitter!
Are y’all gonna be watching this series? Who else is geeked up like I am?
