Happy Hoes

Dear Poptastic Readers,

As you may remember, last year there was a brilliant campy song on my Top 20 countdown called "Don't Try To Steal My Limelight" by Miss Inga featuring Dominika Peczynski & La Camilla (both of Army Of Lovers fame). The song came in at #8. Well, the three have decided to carry on as a music group, this time with Martin Johansson leaving his drag persona, Miss Inga, behind. The group chose the name Happy Hoes! Yes, that is right … Happy Hoes.

Happy Hoes: Dominika, La Camilla and Martin

I initially found out about them through Scandipop.co.uk and found further information at ArmyOfLovers.net. Pictures are from the group's Facebook page.

It appears that this summer Happy Hoes played at Stockholm Pride and they even released a single called "We Rule The World." It's a fun little dance song with a catchy chorus. Martin, Dominika or La Camilla aren't the best singers, but that is part of the charm. Thankfully some additional singers on the chorus. Nothing wrong with that, though. Unfortunately, there isn't a video for the song. If there is, it isn't on YouTube. You can listen to the song by clicking on the title above.

Well, if all of this wasn't great news … Happy Hoes are releasing a Christmas song! And naturally, it is called "Happy Ho Ho Ho!" Apparently there is a video for it. However, the video was already taken down off of YouTube. Hopefully there will be a link soon. However, don't despair! Happy Hoes performed their new holiday classic on Swedish TV last week. And thanks to the wonders of YouTube, you can view the performance here. You might wonder, who is that little girl singing with them? Why it is Dominika's daughter Hannah. And she is quite the singer!

If all of this isn't enough to get you super excited, there is more news. According to the Swedish tabloid Expressen, Happy Hoes might be participating in Sweden's Melodifestivalen, a pre-contest to Eurovision. They have submitted a song! Let's hope they get chosen because you know it would be a hoot! They are still waiting on confirmation.

Dominika was interviewed by the tabloid and she said, “Singing live is not something I’m looking forward to. But it would be reason enough to make me take singing lessons.” Hahahaha!

Another Swedish tabloid, Aftonbladet, asked former Army Of Lovers bandmate, Alexander Bard, what he thought of Happy Hoes doing Eurovision. He replied, “Our universes are so different that I don’t have anything to say about it. Freakshow isn’t part of my universe.”
La Camilla quickly replied: “What’s wrong with a freakshow? That’s exactly what Melodifestivalen is, isn’t it?”

Oooooh! Drama!

Poptastic regards,

"Happy Ho Ho Ho" hasn't been released on iTunes just yet. has just been released on iTunes! You can also buy "We Rule The World" on iTunes, as well as remixes for "Don't Try To Steal My Limelight."
