Tina Fey Spoofs Joni Mitchell. I Love It!

I love Joni Mitchell so much that I even based an entire post once on her music at, but my love for the singer did not stop me from laughing at Tina Fey's spoof of Mitchell's musical stylings on 30 Rock (via jukebox), per Huffington Post and Jezebel. Fey sings rather well her "Paints and Brushes" Mitchellesque tune. One of the lines in the Fey's hilarious spoof is that she will not stop making jokes about Tampons.

Some people get angry when comedians imitate their musical loves, but not me. I love Jamie Foxx's imitation of BabyFace, Luther Vandross, and Prince during his rendition of the "Brady Bunch Theme," and I am a fan of all three of those artists. I also laughed at Sheila E.'s Prince imitation.

Yes, I'm a bona fide Purple Hippie to the point that my children tease me, which is why I still enjoyed Kevin Smith's story about Prince even though it didn't necessarily show his Royal Purpleness in the best light.

And while I'm not a bona fide Beyoncé fan, but I do admire her spunk and talent, I also laughed wildly at "Mo'Nique's spoof of "Crazy in Love" on the BET Awards a few years back.

Tina does a good Joni! The lyrics are pretty funny!

I also love Mo'nique's take on Beyonce. Those sistas worked that routine.
