It would be oh so fun to claim -- as Dan Weiss just did in a post for this very blog -- that Kreayshawn's long-awaited full-length debut is on track to be the worst record of 2012. And it wouldn't be hard: Somethin 'Bout Kreay, which came out this week, is basically an album of nonsensical brags muttered halfheartedly ad nauseam over amplified flatulence.

But you know what? Some of the Oakland tart's dimwitted overshares are actually kind of cool -- and the loud fart sounds are, too. While we highly doubt Somethin 'Bout Kreay will be a critics'-list topper come January, it's certainly not the wholesale massacre that some people have made it out to be. The album even makes a case for Kreayshawn as a charmingly, hilariously incompetent brand of pop star. So before you believe the haters and take it for granted that Kreayshawn's debut is a disaster, here are the top five reasons why it totally isn't.

5. It has "Gucci Gucci" on it.

Any song that can thrust a rapping white girl in Minnie Mouse ears from total obscurity to a major-label deal and glossy-mag-profile fame wields some serious power. Really -- respect.

4. Many waaaay worse albums have come out this year.

Seriously: Give us Somethin 'Bout Kreay over Madonna's MDNA any day. Kreayshawn's soul may be irritating, weed-fried, and lazy, but at least she still has one.

3. You could spend all day laughing at the lyrics.

And we don't think that's unintentional. Kreayshawn knows what she's doing with guffaw-inducing lines like, "Can we go to Hawaii so you can roll my blunts when I get too hiiiigh?" And if she doesn't, she's an idiot savant.
