Macy Gray’s Latest Is a Love Song to Her Vibrator

We promise (or warn) you that you’ll be singing this catchy song all day once you watch the hilarious animated video below for Macy Gray’s new song, “B.O.B.” And no, Bob isn’t short for Robert Redford or Bobby DeNiro — or for any living, breathing, human being for that matter. According to the lyrics, that’s “B is for battery, O for operated, B is for better ’cause he’s not complicated.”

You’re totally singing it now, right? We’re particular fans of the caterpillar line. It’s almost as catchy as her 1999 hit “Try,” except that song was a heartbreaking ode to how much love can hurt. This new song is an ode to self-love that feels so good.

“You get bored and you stop having sex and that’s a tragedy really,” Macy Gray told Elle magazine. “You should have a Bob. You should have all kinds of shit. You shouldn’t be so quiet.”

Here’s to making some noise in bed! Though, for the record, your vibrator doesn’t have to be the noisy one. While there’s something kind of intense and urgent about the burly motor of the Hitachi Magic Wand, we’re fans of whisper quiet vibes, too, like LELO’s pebble-shaped vibes. Whatever floats your little man in the boat, really — because none of them will break your heart, and none of them will make you want to sit in an empty bathtub, hugging your knees and listening to Macy Gray’s “I Try” on repeat.
