First, Sophia Grace & Rosie. Now, Nicki Minaj.

Just a couple days after the cutest girls ever performed this artist's smash, "Starships," on Ellen, Nicki herself has come out with the official music video for this single.

Minaj, who is also not surprisingly back on Twitter, also says she'll release a second video - and you might be in it!

“All that fans that were in Times Square [for my surprise Nokia concert] will get to be in the video, which is gonna be super exciting for them to see themselves,” she told MTV News. “I’m actually really interested in seeing it. I didn’t really know how they were going to make it all happen.”

Exactly 10 years after Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes died in a car accident, former TLC band mates Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins and Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas have made a major announcement:

The group will reunite on stage for a number of performances later this year - and, yes, Left Eye will be included.

Inspired by the Tupac hologram (above) that wowed attendees at Coachella this month, sources tell TMZ that TLC has already booked five cities for the tour, and more will likely be added. They will incorporate their late member via the same kind of technology that brought Tupac to life.

TLC is best known for albums "Ooooooohhh... On the TLC Tip" and "CrazySexyCool." It's also responsible for hits such as "Creep" and "Waterfalls." Don't go chasing them, people.

Mitt Romney. Eminem. We never thought those two people would be used in the same THG headline, but one epic music video parody has united them at last.

This amazing mash-up of Mitt Romney quotes and Eminem's "The Real Slim Shady" takes dead aim at the presidential candidate's flip-flopping reputation.

President Barack Obama and Mitt's all-but-dispatched GOP rival, Newt Gingrich, also make cameos in "The Real Mitt Romney," which is a must-see ...

Oxford student Hugh Atkin created the video, combining the Republican candidate's soundbites and the hit song from the rapper's 2001 Marshall Mathers LP.

Obama begins the video in much the same way as Em begins his track: "May I have your attention please. Will the real Mitt Romney please stand up?"

"Y'all act like you haven't seen a Mormon before... I'm not concerned with the poor," Mitt says in spliced-together clips from various campaign speeches.

As for that catchy chorus, Romney raps, "I'm Mitt Romney and I'm the real Romney ... All the other Mitt Romneys are just masturbating." Obviously.

In other mashup news, check out Obama singing "Sexy and I Know It"!

On second thought, Gotye doesn't really hate what Glee did to his beloved single, "Somebody That I Used to Know."

A few days after referring to that show's cover of the track as "dinky and wrong," Gotye clarified the meaning behind his comments to Los Angeles alt-rock station 98.7 .

"I thought it was really clever to transpose the song to two guys," the artist said. "It was a great idea."

So why did he refer to the version as dinky?

"This xylophone hook in my song - it's kind of dinky not just in the cover version but the original song," he said, being critical of himself and adding that his original words were turned into "the Glee cover I hated and Darren Criss is an asshole."

The track, of course, is everywhere in pop culture these days. Over the past few weeks, contestants on American Idol and a contestant on The Voice have covered "Somebody That I Used to Know."

What did you think of the Glee rendition?

Gotye has been everywhere over the last few weeks.

He performed on Saturday Night Live. His breakout single, "Somebody That I Used to Know" was covered on American Idol and Glee.

And while the artist is clearly thrilled with his success - "I wrote the song and everything else has been a series of surprises," Gotye tells Great Britain's The Sunday Mail - he isn't enthralled with how the Fox comedy tackled his track.

"They did such a faithful arrangement of the instrumentals but the vocals were that pop Glee style, ultra dry, sounded pretty tuned and the rock has no real sense, like it's playing to you from a cardboard box," the artist said of the above cover by Darren Criss and Matt Bomer.

Talking to The Sunday Herald Sun, Gotye added the Glee version made his song "sound dinky and wrong."

Ouch! You tell us: is Gotye's assessment accurate? Or should be be grateful to Glee for giving the single such exposure?
