Been searching for this video on youtube for a while,
And I’m so bummed that even the so-called “unedited version” has edited out the best line, nay, the Whole Entire Point of this song!
Those parts that are bleeped silent? That’s where Mya declares “My ass is like woah.”
It’s seriously the best.
I love it.
She is fah reals the the Rappinest Rapper here, just telling it to us like it is.
Combine that utter confidence with the super hot fast-edit costume changes and it starts to feel like she’s representing Woman, with a Capitol Dub. I mean she starts with sexy gangsta androgyn, moves through rocker toughie, fitness hottie, disco grrrl, even some kind of swimsuit bandita, just kinda opens the song right up, like maybe Mya is not just telling us about her ass in particular, maybe she’s singing about the Collective Ass.
Mya is every woman; our ass is like woah.
And then she tapdances!
Ok but seriously youTube, how prudish is you? You’re ok with “My body’s like woah, my sex is like woah” but the word ass sends you into a gasp!-clutch-the-pearls!-delete-the-naughty-word frenzy? Really? You can say ass on tv! Sit-coms say ass! Bart Simpson said ass like twenty years ago!
Weak, youTube, weak.
Gentle Reader, I hope at some random point in the next couple days you remember, out of nowhere, that your ass is totally like woah.
