Kathy Griffin Releases Dance Remix of Her Bravo Show Theme Song, 'I'll Say It' (AUDIO)
You can now add singer to the list of Kathy Griffin’s jobs as she world premiered her song “I’ll Say It” on Monday’s On Air with Ryan Seacrest. The song is a dance remix of the theme song from her Bravo talk show, Kathy.
The song features clips from her comedy show including soundbites on Lindsay Lohan and the cast of Jersey Shore.
The star told Seacrest: “My little song started off as a joke written by Adam Schlesinger, a legit songwriter (Fountains of Wayne’s “Stacy’s Mom”). Emilio Estefan said, 'You should do a remix.' One thing led to another… my cd drops today. I’m now a member of the music industry because I actually sang the song for my talk show. I’m auto-tuned within an inch of my life.”
What else did the talk show host/comedian have to say about her new foray into music and the remix?
“[Gloria and Emilio Estefan's] 17-year old daughter, Emily, who doesn’t want to be known as an Estefan, because typical kid of a celebrity, she just wants to be her own person which is ridiculous. Her DJ name is Keisha Mai Ash, so that’s her way of saying kiss my ash. She did an even edgier remix. So, Gloria Estefan pulled me aside and lovingly said, ‘God knows I love my husband and his remix is great, but I think Emily’s is even edgier.’ Now that I’m in the music industry, I want the kids to dance with glow sticks.”
Griffin will next appear at the iHeart Radio Festival where she said she’s “going bottomless and I’m going to wear a cute blouse. In the music industry, which I’m apart of, it’s all about image.”
Her comedy special, Tired Hooker, is also nominated for an Emmy. Now, she’s after another award this year for her recording career: A Grammy. Having previously been nominated for her comedy albums, this year she plans “to be in the dance category alongside Calvin Harris, Swedish House Mafia, Kathy Griffin, deadmau5 my new crowd.”
