    T-Pain And Taylor Momsen Are Helping Pornhub Find A Theme Song

    "Climax" was unavailable, apparently.

    This is real life: Pornhub.com is looking for someone to write their next official "anthem" and they just got T-Pain and Taylor Momsen onboard to help.

    Gifted singer-songwriter T-Pain, former-Gossip Girl-turned-rockstar Taylor Momsen, and VICE/Noisey music editor Dan Ozzi will make up the official judging panel for Pornhub's talent search. The competition kicked off in late September and will close by Nov. 30, when the esteemed judges will be tasked to select an official winner.

    T-Pain, for one, is excited for the project. "To have such an eclectic mix of genres, artists, and content come together for the purpose of getting recognized and creating art on a unified front is exciting," he said in a press release. "You can feel the hunger coming from each contestant trying to earn their shot at fame; it’s a humbling experience, and I can’t wait to participate and help Pornhub find their next official anthem.”

    T-Pain also publicly announced his involvement in a video selfie, declaring, "All you rappers, singers out there, send in what you got. I'll let you know what I think. Ya heard me?"

    In September, the adult site asked people to compose and submit "an original Pornhub themed song", and since, they've been infiltrated with pure artistry...

    Pornhub's VP Corey Price tells BuzzFeed News that they've gotten well over two thousand submissions, and that he has even started sifting through them.

    "We’ve had so many interesting entries," Price said, using the YouTube submission (above) as an example. "I’m super impressed with the talent of Pornhub fans the world over for the most part."

    He says he already has some favorites, but he wouldn't disclose any of them for fear of potentially "skew[ing] the judges' perceptions".

    In January 2015, the panel of judges will select a winner, who will be awarded $5,000 to produce a music video (for their song), which will be featured on Pornhub TV.

    On Nov. 30, the judges will be given a comprehensive rubric to help them make a decision by assessing several attributes: style, aesthetics, lyricism (including lyrical content), and song narrative structure. The song that ranks highest in all of these categories will be selected as the winner, with their song being helmed as Pornhub's official jingle, be given expenses to make a music video, and then have it featured on Pornhub.com.

    Judge Dan Ozzi says this opportunity is the least he can do to give back.

    "PornHub has provided me with nearly countless hours of free pornography with their wonderful web service," he said in a statement to BuzzFeed News. "I saw the words 'Pornhub' and 'judge a panel' and I said yes immediately. Then I called my mother to tell her, as one does when having a dream realized."

    As far as working with co-panelists T-Pain and Taylor, Dan is "look[ing] forward to discussing pornography with both of them."
