'Jersey Shore' earns juicy tribute tune from Sarah Bareilles? Fuggetaboutit. Or don't!

Left-field hit-maker Sara Bareilles (you know, the one who wasn’t going to write us a love song) has penned her own loving tribute to the cast of MTV’s Jersey Shore. Watch her perform it live here, but beware some NSFW language (hey, it’s a Jersey Shore tribute, what did you expect?)

Set to the tune of Rihanna’s “Umbrella,” Bareilles tells a Christmas-themed Joisey tale from the perspective of Snooki, The Situation and the rest of our grammatically-challenged, follicularly spectacular friends. With lines like “I have perfect abs/They’re above my crabs,” this might not become her next chart-topping hit, but it certainly has a future in the viral video vein.

What do you think? Does it make you laugh/giggle/guffaw or is it time we all lay off the poor, persecuted stars of the Garden State?

    I was there that night. The funniest thing is it’s an all-ages club, and I was there with a 13-year-old. Haha. But it was all in good fun.

    I loved her for her music before. Now I just love her. She sounds great, was hysterical and just plain awesome.

    I want her to be my best friend. She’s hilarious, she watches bad tv, and she’s super talented.

      Oh god I need some help and have no idea where to go! I’ve read conflicting tignhs on the web as to where to go for it, so I’ll ask here and hopefully someone can help me.Who do I contact about the Ragnarok accounts that were split when the servers merged ages ago? I can only access some of my characters (the ones I don’t want!) and I would like to merge them in some way. Any help would be so greatly appreciated!

    She needs to release another record. I don’t care if she will never match Love Song, and the album will flop. I loved her last one, although i thought it was a little overproduced in some tracks, i love when she strip down her songs, fit her better, she should an album: voice, piano & strings, maybe a guitar over here and a drum over there, but basically her and her piano.

    I like how she did that song over a familiar song in Rihanna’s Umbrella with her guitar. The lyrics are so funny, a little vulgar and raunchy in some parts, but it shows how much she likes the show Jersey Shore a lot. Even interpolates the Eagles’ Hotel California at the tag end! Brilliant! She needs to get her next album out! She’s that good!

    Too funny for words, and right on target.
