The official video for Scissor Sisters’ sleeper hit “Let’s Have a Kiki” is finally here, after going totally viral via Videodrome Discotheque’s mashup clip (below). If we wanted to be hunty we might say this one looks a little… rushed? Like, somebody was all, like, “Ooh girl! We got a viral hit—we gotta get a video out there!”
But, hey, nobody needs that shade! So instead we choose to focus on the impressive fact that the video is all one continuous shot of Ana Matronic and company serving full-on kiki realness!
Check out the official video above, and VD stars Craig MacNeil and Blythe Russo’s clip below. We’ll leave it to you to read them for filth in the comments.
What’s the T not Tea, surely?
Have to admit the videodrome version is better… But the one take dance number is pretty special, too.
Del Marquis is adorable playing the tambourine on the right side.
LOL, the Videodrome vid . . . . Looking like a drowned harassed rat . . . and the image is Phi Phi O’hara. Priceless.
I like this video.
That’s not what realness means.
That’s not what a kiki is.
Gurl, you’re not even using shade right.
This whole mess is a disgrace.
Do the elements and structure of this song remind anyone else of B-52’s Love Shack?
@dee ampersand: Exactly. Snatching black gay lingo without doing your research will always make you look awful.
God, they are so boring! The only thing they have going for them, in my opinion, is an almost awesome logo.
Wow, people. Typical Queerty. Let’s take the hippest thing America has to offer and, well why not, slam them!
You guys wouldn’t know what was hip even if it roophied you, took you home and then had the decency to buy you breakfast when you woke up.
Unreal but, you know, what else do you expect from this website?
Hippest thing in America? Michael the scissor sisters’ music sucks, and their use of Kiki as borrowed from African American slang is OLD.
Ana used to be a drag performer. She knows her drag slang.
The video is amazing…all in one take!!..stop the “bitch bullying” already!!…
Does no one realize this song sucks? Jake Shears looks ridiculous at age 50 doing bad Britney Spears choreography. Ana Matronic has no talent expect maybe doing bad drag? I think in this video Kiki means shit.
It may be a boring mess and not even an interesting kiki at that, but you must be confusing kiki with [phonetically] KAI-KAI.
I think Dorian Corey knew her slang. “You get in a smart crack, and everyone laughs and kikis because you’ve found a flaw and exaggerated it, then you’ve got a good read going.”
@Scott: Yes…I thought b52’s as well…would be cool mega mix..
Finally! Someone with some sense. KiKi and KaiKai. Two completely different things.
Mostly just typical cynical Grindr gay bois. They must be highly cultured and exposed to art that the rest of us only dream about.
@Stephen: Let me guess, you have tickets to grandMa-Donna’s concert when she brings her Old Lady N Their Walkers tour to the US. Bless your heart, imagine you have been hating on the SS’s from the first time you heard em.
i love this damn song haha. and video.
@Spike Huh? No. And I said both were good, I just liked the Videodrome one better. Oh, wait, that’s right, you’re an idiot!
Spike is a D0uchebag
You are a fool.
Ana Matronic=pathetic appropriation of drag/trans subculture
Let’s Have a Kiki=pathetic appropriation of black ballroom/trans subculture
@um… OK, if you say so. You have no idea what my tastes in music are actually like. You assume SO MUCH based upon one stated opinion of slight preference for one video presentation versus another, when I state both a good. You people crack me up!
