If you’re going to make a mockumentary about being the biggest pop star in the world, you’re going to need some killer tracks. At least, that’s the case for The Lonely Island and their upcoming film Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping.
Andy Samberg stars as Conner 4 Real, a pop star who embodies all the worst attributes that come with being a celebrity. Over-priced holograms, a group of yes-men, and an ego bigger than his album sales all make up the world’s most notorious fictional pop star. The rest of The Lonely Island also appear in the film, with Jorma Taccone as Conner’s DJ and Akiva Schaffer as Conner’s reclusive lyricist.
The trio have now released two new songs from the soundtrack and they’re just as hilariously offensive as past hits from The Lonely Island, including “Dick In A Box,” “I’m On A Boat,” and “I Just Had Sex.”
The first track is a lesson in art history with “Mona Lisa.” Singing “Mona Lisa, you’re an overrated piece of shit,” Conner 4 Real calls the famous muse “worse than the pyramids” and compares her to a Garbage Pail Kid and “the world’s first basic bitch.” Asking where Mona Lisa’s eyebrows are, Conner explains that in America no one lies about paintings, but that’s not the case in Paris.
The second track released from the film today includes vocals from Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine, who appears as a hologram in the film. He’s not dead or anything, holograms are just sweet. “I’m So Humble” shows off just how humble Conner 4 Real can be, listing things like not complaining when his private jet is subpar and trying to ignore all the girls that tell him he should model.
In addition to Levine, the new film features a laundry list of stars, including Simon Cowell, Carrie Underwood, Usher, Sarah Silverman, Martin Sheen, Will Arnett, Bill Hader, Tim Meadows, Will Forte, Seal, DJ Khaled, Snoop Dogg and Pink. Samberg’s wife, musician Joanna Newsome, also makes an appearance in the film as the woman who brings roadie Bill Hader back from the dead. Take that, Game of Thrones.
Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping hits theatres on June 3.
