BoomKat Was A Fly Girl?
I was just watching the Jessica Simpson special on MTV (more on that later) and there was a promo for an upcoming show called “The Little Talent Show.” It looks like a low-rent combo of American Idol and So You Think You Can Dance/Act that will probably suck big time, but its saving grace is that one of the judges is none other than BoomKat!
For those of you not familiar with precious BoomKat, she’s Laurie Ann Gibson, the choreographer from “Making the Band 3” who screams “boom boom KAT!” rather than the usual “5, 6, 7, 8” dancing counts. She’s spunky and probably insane, but I love her for making me care about pelvic thrusts, Danity Kane and keeping it real.
That being said, I’m surprised I’ve never googled her ass before tonight. In doing so, I found out that she is from Toronto (what?) and was a fly girl on “In Living Color” for two episodes. I can totally see her getting into it with Rosie Perez, the ILC choreographer. First rule of BoomKat? BoomKat does NOT like being told what to do.
I searched YouTube for a little ILC footage of BoomKat, but to not avail. I guess I could rent her dance DVD “Breakin’ It Down,” videotape myself doing just that and post it online, but that’s just crazy talk. That and I don’t own a camcorder.
The moral of this ramble is that MTV realizes that BoomKat makes for good TV and I’m glad I will be graced with her presence yet again.
I think THIS might be her official MySpace page, but she misspells Danity Kane in the “about me” section, so who knows? That could just be her way of showing the ladies what’s what. Who else would post a video there that consists entirely of their tiny rat dog barking like he was hopped up on crack?
