I noticed something very interesting yesterday when watching the video for Demi Lovato's new song "Really Don't Care". If you haven't seen it, here it is:
Now, ladies and gentlement of the jury, I would like to present my findings to you and let you decide what has happened here.
this is my wife, @superchicktrish. For those of you who don't know, she is the singer for Superchick. She is a regulation hottie. and for some reason, she agreed to marry me. and since she's such a fine piece of eye candy, i will include another picture of her:
This is a screenshot from a tweet by Demi Lovato (@ddlovato) about 5 years ago where she quoted lyrics from a lesser-known Superchick song named "Courage."
so even though Demi is pretty famous, it's clear that she listens to Superchick and is aware of who Tricia is.
Now for those of you who don't already know where i'm going with this, I'll post a few screen shots from Demi's "Really Don't Care" video:
hmmm....black suit jacket, skinny black tie and white shirt? i feel like I've seen this before. lots of gold bangle bracelets and dangly earrings. striking a pose with hands on hips.
bright red lips, hair shaved on one side, tips colored pink. this seems really familiar. oh wait! i know where i've seen this before!
These pictures were taken a little over a year ago as part of the promo shots for @superchicktrish's most recent solo album Radiate. And because I am not above shameless promotion, here is the iTunes link to that record: Tricia Brock - Radiate
We know Demi is a Superchick fan. I think it's entirely possible, and even probable that she saw Tricia's promo pictures sometime in the last year and used it as an inspiration in her look for this video. No, I am not bashing Demi. I actually really like her voice and some of her songs. I just want to point out that my wife is awesome and quite possibly provided visual inspiration for a very popular pop star. If somehow Demi is reading this and is somehow still mad, be mad at me and not Tricia. She doesn't even know I'm writing this. Anyway, in the past couple years Tricia has been hired to do makeup and styling on various photo shoots because her knack for fashion has become so well known. Sometimes a guy just has to brag on his wife. So in conclusion, i ask you, ladies and gentlemen of the jury to declare my wife awesome.
