WATCH: Taio Cruz and Ke$ha get filthy in the “Dirty Picture” video

It’s been a long time since I’ve written for this blog…but now I’m back…with the premiere of Taio Cruz’s Dirty Picture video which features everyone’s favourite trashy new pop princess Ke$ha. The single is set for release on 23rd April in Ireland and 26th April in UK.

The song itself isn’t much. I can see myself really enjoying this when I’m trashed on the dancefloor some night but I guess that’s the song’s overall purpose. It’s inferior to Break Your Heart but superior to last UK single No Other One and with Ke$ha’s added star power, it will probably prove to be another hit. Taio made a record leap to #1 in the US with former UK #1 Break Your Heart last month. The track was re-jigged with a guest rap from Ludacris for the US market.

The video is a disappointment. From Taio’s earlier description of the video, I was expecting it to be an update of Nelly Furtado’s Maneater but for the majority of the video, its just Taio showing us all what a sexy bad boy he is and Ke$ha barely moves from the toilet she’s standing on. However, I will let you guys judge for yourself. What do you think of the Dirty Picture video below?

P.S. Oh and does anyone else think that censorship has gone a bit crazy? If Akon can get away with saying “Damn you’s a sexy chick” on the radio then why is “dirty” bleeped out of this track?! They mightn’t be the most child friendly lyrics but there are worse.
