Remember Bow Wow? The pint-sized 21-year-old R&B poptart and "rapper"-turned-"actor" was apparently told the best way to deal with "those" pesky rumors was to go hardcore. That would include going shirtless in the new video for "Sunshine", flashing his abs, proudly pointing out alleged girlfriends on the cover of (straight) porn magazines ... oh and all while sampling and lip synching to "These Boots Are Made for Walkin' ", the camp gay classic immortalized by fierce 60s/70s gay icon Nancy Sinatra.
Bow Wow lip syncs to Nancy Sinatra AFTER THE JUMP.
Gossip blogger Sandra Rose was the first to identify the "You've Got" refrain sampled from Nancy Sinatra’s 1966 classic "These Boots Are Made For Walkin’". It's new music for Bow Wow's generation, and admittedly the beat is hot, but surely someone at his record label or management were aware Nancy Sinatra and that song are camp gay favorites.
One reviewer writes: "Nancy Sinatra happily acknowledges her gay icon status. Her often defiant lyrics and no-nonsense attitude inspire gays ... Her flair for fashion doesn't hurt either. Dig the eye-popping costumes in her 1967 TV special Movin' With Nancy. The two-tone eyeliner, frosted blond hair ... and, of course, de rigueur vinyl go-go boots."
Did the Judy Garland estate want too much money to sample "Somewhere Over the Rainbow"? I'm just sayin' ...
