And Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley dished on the reasons they keep on being invited back to the Country Music Association's awards show in the cover interview for September's issue of Southern Living, out on Friday.After Lady Gaga released her tech-centric "Telephone" video on Friday, I couldn't help but rack my brain about other songs that include references to modern-day geek and tech culture.Directed by and starring Jason Alexander (of Seinfeld), the “Online” video pokes fun at online dating and people who deliberately tweak their online profiles to show themselves in a more flattering light.Another tongue-in-cheek song and music video, Paisley’s “Celebrity,” also stars Alexander and William Shatner.
