‘I’m So Hungry’ Parody Of Iggy Azalea’s ‘Fancy’ Is Our New Song of the Summer

Who would have thought that the best parody of Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy” would be about food?

In a week filled with parody videos (Weird Al is releasing one new song each day this week), our favorite one comes from a very unlikely source. To celebrate Ramadan, which goes from June 28 to July 28 this year, Heidi Naguib, a documentary filmmaker and artist in Washington, D.C., rewrote the words to Azalea’s hit song to be “I’m So Hungry.”

While Azalea’s version is a main contender for song of the summer, we’re confident calling Naguib’s version the song of Ramadan — if there is such a thing.

In the video, two Muslim women rap about what it’s like to fast during the day, and then eat a large meal in the evening after sundown as part of the holiday. The chorus sums it up perfectly: “I’m so hungry / You already know / I’m in the buffet / Till I can’t eat no more.”

Yazzy and Netti, the women in the video, are spot-on, even down to rapping their names a the end.  Pretty impressive for two grad students. It might be an unconventional topic for a rap parody video, but we’re definitely going to have “I’m So Hungry” stuck in our heads for the rest of the day.

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.
