Cat Power Spoofs Her Onstage Breakdowns in 'Funny or Die' Video

She can't keep it together for "The Alphabet Song" with a class of grade school kids

Heading into a performance from oft-erratic, emotionally-unhinged songwriter Cat Power, you've got to be prepared for anything. Unless you're a second-grader and Chan Marshall is visiting for music time.

"I think I've made it very clear, no hand-dancing," Cat Power tells the beaming schoolteacher right off the bat. It goes south from there, with Marshall telling the confused kids, "Don't ever sing, always respect the performer," and asking everyone to turn away and quit judging her.

We won't spoil the ending, but we'll say it's ... emotional. (And it involves pudding.)

July 22: HyunA Monkeys Around

HyunA, the K-pop star who gained global recognition from co-starring in Psy's "Gangnam Style" video, is teasing her new single "Red" in a very sexy, very odd new photoshoot. The singer poses amid two hunky beefcake wearing humongous, furry monkey heads. HyunA's new music will reportedly showcase a more "mature" side from the singer and while this isn't the look we were necessarily imagining, it does amp up our anticipation.
