Ain't No way is a gorgeous song written for Aretha Frankin by her sister, Carolyn Franklin. If you've never heard the original, buy it on itunes. It's not campy at all, it's amazing, so obviously everyone with a hearty belt has covered it. Below, Whitney Houston and Mary J. Blige take the song, throw it on the floor, and stamp on it till it's a bloody, shitty mess, while wearing matching red leather outfits complete with hair extensions and coke noses. Below that is Patti Labelle showing them how it's done by singing the shit out of it right in Aretha Franklin's face.

Back in Cincinnati there was a place called "The Shadowbox Cabaret." They fancied themselves to be a sexy live version of SNL. Their commercials were the CAMPIEST and when we were offered free tickets we of course went.
Along with major J ssssing, non-stop nachos, and delicious ice cream, we saw a show similar to the current one playing, smartly titled "CrazySexyCool!" Keep it up, Shadowbox. You guys are RICH.
Side note: We were so fucking high that we had the giggles. Our waitress was IN THE SHOW and she thought we were laughing at her, which we kind of were. You would have too. Trust me.

If you know my well enough, you know that I'm OBSESSED with this campy song called "In L.A." from the stage musical adaptation of the film "Fame." For a masterful rendition download the most recent "Fame on 42nd Street" recording, but check out this coke slut too. She kind of gives you the idea. Fast forward to 1:40 for the most delicious treats.

Make-up is ridiculous. This first picture is of my friend Stephanie. When we were in school, someone from the tech department had to do a project and got her to do this. Turns out, the picture is HILARIOUS. I laughed when I saw it then, and I'm still laughing now. I'm assuming Stephanie is too. This is camp gold.

Tartanbobz, my new favorite youtube group has loads of videos in their collection. Thanks AKB for introducing this CAMPY bunch of mixing cougars to me.
It's a musical theatre recital. They don't perform the songs in context, so the actors are challenged to write a monologue and give the song their own personal context. AMAZING! They won't let you embed them (they probably know how fucking campy they are) so click here:

Who knew Nantucket, the line at TJ Maxx, Jake's room, Times Square, and Theatre Row Studios were all so fucking RICH?

It has been brought to my attention that not everyone understands the meaning of the word "camp." While an hour or two with the material posted below should make it clear to all, I'd also recommend clicking HERE for a proper, Wikipedia lesson in camp. It's as entertaining as you'd want it to be.
Keep it campy you guys!
