Now, however, girl done straight-up lost her mind. She is rapping. About Ursa Minor. And call centers? I don’t know, but it’s all bhangra-y, and it’s called “Bollywood,” and the Exile in Guyville Liz Phair we once knew and loved has officially left the building.

Stream this big ball of crazy after the jump, and just … oh man. Maybe use the comments section to try to explain what it is exactly that is going on here.
