Hot Video Alert: Kristin Chenoweth - I Want Somebody (Bitch About)
I was THRILLED when I heard that Broadway singer and television actress Kristin Chenoweth is releasing a new studio album and single. What I wasn't expecting was a country song! Really a fabulous little number, "I Want Somebody (Bitch About)" is actually a little bit country and a little bit Broadway, taken from Chenoweth's upcoming fourth studio album Some Lessons Learned, due out September 13th on Sony Masterworks. Chenoweth's enjoyable little country twang is very reminiscent of her Emmy nominated role on Glee, April Rhodes and makes me wonder what sort of album this is going to be. At this point, it could go country or it could go Broadway. To be honest, I could get into either of those options.
Check out the FABULOUS Roman White-directed video featuring Kristin Chenoweth gossiping with her friends in a beauty salon. As Chenoweth gets into the meat of the song, the video turns into a full throttle, Broadway production number, complete with a big sound stage, lots of backup dancers and fabulous glittery dresses. Ha. As if Kristin Chenoweth needs a sequined gown to shine any more than she already does. This video is absolutely charming. Chenoweth's last release was 2008's A Lovely Way To Spend Christmas, released by Sony Masterworks. The album peaked at #77 on the Billboard 200 chart and #7 on the Billboard Holiday albums chart. Prior to her Christmas album, Chenoweth released a Christian album, As I Am in 2005, where it peaked at #31 on the Billboard Christian Albums chart.
