The Return Of 10-Legged Ho Machine Danity Kane

Remember Z-grade hookers, Danity Kane? Probably not... they had one hit ("Show Stopper") two years ago, then skittered away like a caterpussy.

But the cash must be gone, so now Sean "Puff Diddly" Combs is trotting out the 10-legged ho machine for yet another season of Making The Band -- from whence they were created, in season 3 -- and this time it's sure to be a trashfest.

Come to think of it, they were first on that show five years ago. They've all gotta be about 40 by now. Anyway, the low-rent concept this time is that Danity Kane have to live in a house with the last boy band who won the show and some guy named Donnie, while they all record their albums.

Naturally, the music doesn't matter -- it's all about who's gonna hook up and do sex in the house. One would assume Puff Daddy already screwed all 11 of them -- you know, to make sure they were "in tune."

At any rate, Danity Kane's new single, "Damaged", will be made available on iTunes tomorrow. It's actually a pretty decent electro-pop number. A full album is expected in March. The premiere of Making The Band 4 airs tonight on MTV at 10 p.m.

    D'Luv, pretty harsh on DK, there aren't ya? Their debut album was quite good!! As for Damaged, is it me, or does it sound like Rihanna's Breaking Dishes mixed with Janet's Feedback? I can't hear it without hearing those other two louder in my brain.

    I was disappointed by their first album...not because it was horrible, but because it was really good. I blame P. Diddy for not really promoting them beyond the first single because they had plenty of material to work with. As for this second effort, I haven't listened yet but I will completely blame DK if it doesn't do well...because they should have left BadBoy after the first album!

    I've just got one word for Danity...meh. Although maybe it was well timed, since Atomic Kitten just released one of the blandest pop covers of the decade. They're downright exciting next to that!

    Oh..and you might like this. While I was down in Houston, I was walking through the Galleria, and FinishLine or something like that was playing "If That's OK With You". Does this mean they may actually be flirting with a US invasion?

    I seem to remember a title like this one cropping up before--so does this mean Danity Kane are our Girls Aloud?

    I meant to say, on the NKOTB post below, I know Paul didn't adore it, but I still love that Jordan Knight/Deborah Gibson MOR duet from a year or two ago. And also, the now confirmed to be great Robyn-featuring remix of that Snoop Dogg song is my positive karmic payback from the universe for me being forced to sit through a marathon of Snoop Dogg's Father Hood a few weeks back.

    ...the duet you discussed in that post you linked to--I didn't realize the "Give It To Me" post you linked also discussed that!

    And while I'm commenting, I might as well say that there are some things about "Give It To Me" that seem very...modern. Interesting. But good!

    PG, your last comment literally through me for a loop for about five minutes. I was like, "Is she talking about Timbaland/Nelly Furtado/Justin Timberlake's 'Give It To Me,' which didn't come out until about 8 months after I did that post?" Then I realized you meant "Give It To You"...

    Yeah, I didn't appreciate "Give It To You" at the time it was out. It was one of those minor hits that was easily avoidable (charting at #10), but it's aged quite well, I think.

    Shanaynay, didn't you get banned once before? Thank god you're back...

    John, well, I heard the "Space Hopper Mix" of Brother Beyond's 1988 single "He Ain't No Competition" a few weeks back at Pinkberry, so I think the retail world might just be protesting after being forced to pipe through Soulja Boy one too many times.

    Neka, I actually watched the show last night. I love how they each brought demos of new songs to Diddy, and he was like, "Yeah, riiiight. So, you'll be doing our songs for the new album, and you have 5 weeks to record them all." I highly doubt they have much say in anything, though I'm sure if this album tanks, they won't have to worry about leaving BadBoy...

    Bugger me. I despise danity kane in the same way you despise girls aloud ie i quite like one of their songs but it is purely against my will...

    And NKOTB. No no no no no! And No! But that Jordan/Deborah duet grew on me about a year after everyone else loved it, how weird I am.
