MTV wants me to buy Kate Nash's album

I've been sick recently, but VH1 ran an America's Next Top Model marathon all last week (yes, literally all week), so I had something to watch during my various states of half-consciousness (I am addicted to that show--I can have seen the episode a dozen times before and if it is on, I will still watch it again). Unfortunately, the end of the marathon was like ending an addiction cold turkey--what else was I supposed to do?

Luckily, though, MTV decided to run an ANTM mini-marathon today, which of course hooked me in. However, I couldn't help noticing that Kate Nash seems to be everywhere on this channel--talking about herself in promos for her site on, singing "Merry Happy" on the commercials for Run's House, overseeing baguette competitions on the commercials for something that I think was called The Challenge, soundtracking (with "Merry Happy" again) a commercial for a website called's pretty much at a ridiculous level of saturation. As if that's not enough, she's also on MTV Hits' "What To Watch in 2008" list ("Foundations" is getting play on the channel) and appeared on an episode of London Live run recently.

In other news, the Norwegian national finals songs are out (there are three sets of six). I'll have coherent thoughts on them at some point.

Haha, I love the modelthons! The same thing happened to me last year. So sick with the flu that all I could do was watch Top Model. (and will still watch it whenever it's on. depending on cycle)

Hope you're feeling better!

I'll have to get my paws on those songs now. Thanks for the link! :)

It's the perfect thing for watching when you're sick! And I have no choice, I have to get better--I'm going on a trip in a few days! ;) Thanks for the thoughts!
