Even if you don’t know Tanisha Thomas from Oxygen’s Bad Girls Club, you surely know her work. Her famous tirade from 2008’s season two, in which she laments, “I didn’t get no fucking sleep ’cause of ya’ll, ya’ll not gonna get no sleep ’cause of me,” has been endlessly posted and remixed, and is now a pillar of Web culture.

Tanisha as a meme and cultural relic already had a big presence on Tumblr, but recently people have started remixing her iconic freakout with music, proving her expert percussion skills.

Even sped up she sounds amazing. Watch as she takes on Nicki’s “Starships.”
