Since Disney teen star Selena Gomez is apparently all about promoting local produce (seen her Borden milk commercials yet?), I guess we can return the favor and mention this: The Grand Prairie native has joined forces with her fellow Dallas suburbanites in Forever the Sickest Kids to record a remix of sorts, in which Gomez sings extra harmonies for the song "Woah Oh (Me vs. Everyone)"--the track that broke into radio playlists last summer and put FTSK (and, subsequently, the entire Dallas mall punk scene) on the map.
More on FTSK in next week's print edition cover story (in which I try to make some sense of the suburban rock landscape). But for the time being, if you're just jonesing to hear this collaboration in full, OK, you can download it here, thanks to this blog. Or you can get it on iTunes for a dollar, I think.
Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
