Princess Superstar at Beta
Funny, sexy and slightly insane, Princess Superstar is unquestionably a distinctive talent. As a recording artist, she takes a clever and far-out approach that mashes hip-hop, pop and electro into funky, overtly sexual and hilarious anthems such as "Bad Babysitter," with its lyrics about sending the kids to bed so she can give her boyfriend head on the couch. Shifting the emphasis a little, her DJ mixes focus on keeping the dance floor moving, but without sacrificing her inherent playfulness and tongue-in-cheek raunchiness. Electro-house, chopped up hip-hop and experimental flourishes mesh into head-nodding, grin-inducing mixes that are as funny as they are funky. Princess Superstar has worked with everyone from the Prodigy to Kool Keith, made the covers of everything from the Village Voice to Urb and played clubs all over the world — and now she's coming to Beta, this Saturday, June 27.
