Behold the unholy terror of Korean hip-hop star G-Dragon

Categories: Freaky Friday

Meet G-Dragon. He's a Korean rapper who seems to be the unholy hell spawn of T Pain, Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber. He's got Bieber's androgynous look and hairstyle (albeit in a bleached-blonde model), Gaga's fashion sense and dance moves and all the overly-AutoTuned goodness of a dozen T-Pain songs packed into this one track.

Terrified yet? Good, then let's continue.

The weird mix of English and Korean (we assume) makes it impossible to figure out what the hell he's singing about -- as if your typical pop rap song made any kind of freaking sense, anyway, regardless of its country of origin. What's more, it's got a throbbing electro backing track, enough Auto-Tune to kill a kitten and an incomprehensible video that mashes up pseudo-2001: A Space Odyssey, some snazzy dance numbers, bizarre costumes and apples (you'll see) into one weird-ass mess.

By all accounts, it should be awful, and in a way, it is. But it's also kind of awesome, like Die Antwoord is awesome, and chances are good you'll be hearing the chorus ricochet through your brain repeatedly after a listen or two.
