Slumming It.

Remember that song that won the Oscar this year? "Jai Ho (You Are My Destiny)" from Slumdog Millionaire as written/performed by A.R. Rahman? Guess what? The Pussycat Dolls have covered it in English for you. Complete with a video in which Nicole Scherzinger pretends to be current it-girl Freida Pinto. Yes, Rahman himself is involved with this project. Yes, it sounds just like Disney filtered UK-pop circa 2000. Yes, supposedly Scherzinger was asked to rewrite/format the lyrics herself. Yes, i am counting this as another reason why Slumdog Millionaire shouldn't have won best picture. Yes, i hear this song and it reminds me of stuff like this....
