GMA: Icona Pop “I Love It” Performance
Electro pop sensations Icona Pop came by GMA to play their catchy ear worm song “I Love It.” If you have somehow escaped hearing this song, be warned: it is quite possibly the catchiest song of the year. It’s been on my workout mix for a few weeks now, so I have a Pavlovian response of wanting to run whenever I hear it, but it’s a great dance tune, too. Caroline Hjelt and Aino Jawo, the ladies who make up Icona Pop, were born in Stockholm. The music video actually begins with an exchange in Swedish between them. But their hit “I Love It” is so universal, it transcends national borders.
Besides having a great beat, the lyrics depict a person so fed up with their other half, that when everything goes wrong, they don’t care (they love it!), even though this includes crashing their car into a bridge and realizing their lover is gone. But it’s okay, because the guy is “from the 70s” and they’re “a 90’s chick.” I don’t know what that last part even means, but it’s awesome.
Caroline Hjelt and Aino Jawo stood on either side of the stage when they performed, singing and dancing throughout the first couple of verses. But then they began a triumphant march outside to stand near the crowd gathered there and perform for them.
Dear Mom, Love Cher Documentary
GMA talked to Cher and her mother May 3 2013. Cher has had a top 10 hit in every one of the past five decades, but she hasn’t had an album in a long while. But soon she’ll have a new album out in the fall. In the meantime, Cher fans can get their Cher fix by watching her new documentary on her mother, called Dear Mom, Love Cher. At 86, Georgia Holt is a star in her own right. She’s recently released her own album Honky Tonk Woman.
Georgia Holt told GMA she wasn’t a conventional mother, but she did a good job with her children. She was married eight times to six different men. Georgia Holt said her father insisted she couldn’t go to bed with a man unless she was married, so she took the advice to heart.
Georgia Holt Success
Georgia Holt first came to Hollywood with dreams of being a singer, but wound up taking small parts in TV shows. When some old songs Georgia recorded 30 years ago turned up in the garage, Cher decided to give her mother a gift by remastering and releasing them.
Cher’s Big Success
Georgia Holt said when she first heard her daughter, she knew she was going to be a huge star. She said she was thrilled her daughter did what she never could do. Georgia Holt said she didn’t think she was equipped for the success.
Cher’s New Album
Cher said her new album is about “being fabulous.” She also said she’s never been a huge fan of her own music, but she thought this new album was the best one she’s ever done.
