Ireland’s Jedward: Eurovision’s Next Top Male Models 2012

Earlier this week Jedward premiered their new music video for “Everyday Superstar”. But whereas their Eurovision hits – “Lipstick” and “Waterline” – were fresh and contemporary, this feels more like the same old, same old. Although this isn’t overly surprising once you realise that the song is actually taken from their 2011 album “Victory”.

The track is fun, throw-away pop, crammed full of celebrity references. Shakira, Angelina, Madonna, Gaga, Britney and Beyoncé all get a mention (Teo and Besim’s Jennifer Gray and Katy Perry name-drops seem discreet in comparison). It makes for a pleasant 3 minutes, but it hardly deserves a stand alone video.

The last 12 months have been relatively quiet (music-wise) for the Grimes brothers, and they haven’t released an album in almost 2 years. Are they stuck in a creative rut? Of course the lack of new material may be due to all the off-stage antics. They were dropped by Universal, split with their manager Louis Walsh, and then (who could forget?) there was the name-change which wasn’t.

Despite all this, the Jed-heads seem to love it, and #everydaysuperstar was even trending for a while on Twitter. But what do you all think? Has the Jedward idea-well run dry? Or is this just a little something to keep us going until album number 4 eventually lands?

“Everyday Superstar” Lyrics – Jedward

You know what?
She’s not your everyday average girl,
Listen up,
Ever since I met this girl,
Don’t even watch TV,
Don’t go to movies, no,
I don’t even turn on the radio,
She’s everything I want,
A-all rolled into one,
She’s like a fantasy,
But I’m in luck cuz she’s real to me, me, me, oh, yeah,

She’s got,
Hips like Shakira,
Lips of Angelina,
Twisted like Gaga,
Dances like Madonna,
She got that boom, boom, like Britney,
Swagger of Beyoncé,
Baby don’t you know that you are,
My everyday superstar, superstar, superstar-star,
It’s kinda hard to sum it up,
She’s got that what, what, what,

A mystery,
Moving on the scene like a dancing queen,
She ain’t that average type,
She’s bigger than her height,
But don’t you even try,
Givin’ her the eye cuz she’s all mine, mine, mine, oh yeah,

She’s got,
Hips like Shakira,
Lips of Angelina,
Twisted like Gaga,
Dances like Madonna,
She got that boom, boom, like Britney,
Swagger of Beyoncé,
Baby don’t you know that you are,
My everyday superstar, superstar, superstar-star,

She got that chemistry, chemistry,
Mixin’ it up,
She keeps on sendin’ me, sendin’ me,
Over the top,
She got that chemistry, chemistry,
Mixin’ it up,
She keeps on sendin’ me, sendin’ me,
Over the top,

She’s got,
Hips like Shakira,
Lips of Angelina,
Twisted like Gaga,
Dances like Madonna,
She got that boom, boom, like Britney,
Swagger of Beyoncé,
Baby don’t you know that you are,
My everyday superstar, superstar, superstar-star,

Like Shakira,
Lips of Angelina,
Twisted like Gaga,
Dances like Madonna,
She got that boom, boom, like Britney,
Swagger of Beyoncé,
Baby don’t you know that you are,
My everyday superstar, superstar, superstar-star,
Superstar-star,
Everyday superstar, superstar,
She’s my everyday superstar,
You are my everyday superstar,
You are my everyday superstar

Earlier this year Jedward were over in Los Angeles recording their fourth album, which they apparently wrote all the songs for. I think they just made this video because it’s a fan favourite and they really enjoy making DIY music videos in their spare time.
