So this happened: In case you missed it -- God knows we did -- 3OH!3 recently had a cameo on Hellcats, in which the Boulder boys performed "My First Kiss," with a scantily clad Ashley Tisdale serving as a sultry proxy for Ke$ha. Nice! Uh, what the hell is Hellcats, you ask? Well, let's see, near as we can tell, it's a show about this girl named Marti Perkins (a "hip, edgy townie with working-class roots," evidently) who loses her scholarship and ends up having to join the cheerleader squad to pay for school. Sounds positively riveting.
