Umm, I don't know what to say. Forget that, yes I do: I'm flabbergasted. Gobsmacked. Horrified. Malin, sweetie, what in the name of heaven were you thinking?? Were you sniffing Absorbine fumes?? Hitting the Brännvin a little too hard?? (Note: I am by no means insinuating that Malin has any substance issues. This is an attempt at humor, for heaven's sake. Really though, something had to be behind a dubious decision like this!)
I love this woman's riding, and have enjoyed watching her re-emergence at the top after the retirement of the wonderful Butterfly Flip with her new partner, the Lux Z stallion H&M Tornesch. Her singing, if one can call it that, I'm not a fan of.
At first impression, based on the fashions, I thought this was an ad for her sponsor H&M. I mean really, who mucks a stall wearing all white??? Then the penny dropped -- this was no ad. This was supposed to be music!!
Entitled Do You Wanna Ride, it's got a bit of a dance hall/bad elevator music feel to it. The lyrics are a crack-up: "Do you wanna ride, Do you wanna ride, Do you wanna ride, I love horse." And who could forget that transcendent line, "Horse are my fetish."
Oh....my...word. Honestly, I would kill to ride any of her her horses, although I'm relatively certain that's not what the lyrics are really alluding to. I would also love to find a browband like the one on the gray in the beginning of the video.
Malin, I love ya -- I'd give my eyeteeth to ride with the style you do. A word of advice, though: If you wanna sing, do it in the car, preferrably with the windows up. Just saying...
