MTV News has been counting down our picks for the Top 25 Songs of 2010 , and with everything from Lady Gaga’s “Telephone” to Drake’s “Fancy” making the list, it’s pretty clear that we just wanted to party this year. So when MTV News caught up with some music megastars, we wanted to know what they were jamming to this year.
Katy Perry showed her girl some love with her pick, choosing a seriously fun Rihanna track. “I love ‘Only Girl (In the World).’ Of course I gotta give it up to my girl!” she said. Rihanna returned the favor to Perry, saying, “My favorite song of the year has to be ‘Teenage Dream,’ Katy Perry.”
Snooki gave a shout-out to Pauly D and his “Beat the Beat” remix, Far East Movement gave love to Bruno Mars’ “incredible” songwriting on “Just the Way You Are,” and Mike Posner and Keri Hilson both shouted out “F— You” by Cee Lo Green as their pick.
The Situation went with a non-”Jersey Shore” track: “Definitely Drake. … Maybe ‘Forever’ or one of his songs. I’m a big fan of Drake.”
The guys from My Chemical Romance showed some rock camaraderie with their picks. “We got into Sleigh Bells and the new M.I.A. record,” they shared, adding that they thought the Black Keys’ Brothers was “phenomenal.”
Paramore leading lady Hayley Williams also flew her rock flag, saying, “I really love the Arcade Fire record. and I love the song ‘Month of May.’ ”
The fellas of Muse showed love to the Black Eyed Peas’ track “I Gotta Feeling” and, on the other end of the spectrum, Phoenix’s “1901.” Crooner Michael Bublé gave some love to fellow adult-contemporary act Train and their song “Hey, Soul Sister.”
Christina Milian and Dane Cook both loved Willow Smith’s instant smash “Whip My Hair.” “It’s the song that I put on the minute I wake up in the morning,” Cook said. “I whip my hair back and forth.”
Hip-hop also got some love. “Community” star Joel McHale opted for Kanye West’s “Runaway,” Avril Lavigne went for B.o.B and Hayley Williams’ “Airplanes,” and TLC’s Chilli loved another B.o.B track. ” ‘Beautiful Girls’ — is that the name of the song though?” she laughed, referring to “Nothin’ on You.” “I love that song!”
Other tracks that made the celebrity list included Rick Ross’ “B.M.F. (Blowin’ Money Fast),” thanks to songwriter Sean Garrett; Dwele went for Gucci Mane’s “Wasted”; and Ray J made a case for “Right Above It” by Lil Wayne and Rihanna’s “What’s My Name?”
