... but what for?
J.J. Abrams‘s production company Bad Robot released a mysterious video trailer titled simply Stranger that has everyone wondering what the director/producer is teasing us with.

Kanye West is no fan of the media but yesterday, he agreed to tape an hour-long television interview so that he could talk to the world about his newborn daughter North West, his love for his daughter’s mother and various other topics relating to how he relates to the press. You may be asking yourself, Who or what could get Kanye West to agree to do such a thing? Well, Kanye‘s babymama’s mama has a new daytime talk show and I guess he got roped into appearing on the show out of lurve for his babymama … despite the fact that it is widely believed that Kanye and his babymama’s mama don’t really get along. HMMM. I guess there are just those times when you have to bite the bullet and do things that you normally wouldn’t do if family wasn’t involved.

Kelly Clarkson may be in the final phase of wedding planning these days but she’s also readying the release of a new album that will be out this Xmas.

Art, I guess
A few weeks ago Lady Gaga released the cover art for her new single Applause, the first from her upcoming new album ARTPOP. Yesterday we got to see the lyric video for the song and today we get to see the official music video. There appears to be all sorts of “art” going on in this video … which, IMHO, looks like a whole lotta nothing really going on. The focus appears to be on the song itself, which is good actually, but overall, I can’t say that I’m crazy about this video. MTV announced today that Gaga will open the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards this coming weekend with a performance of this song but no word on whether or not she’ll appear on stage as a swan with a human head. Stay tuned. As for the video, what do y’all think? Is this a hit or a miss?

'Higher' By Just Blaze & Baauer, Featuring Jay Z
Nabil has made amazing music videos for artists like Kanye West and Frank Ocean, and now it looks like the acclaimed director might be venturing into short film. Just Blaze (one of Hip Hop’s biggest producers and frequent collaborator of Jay Z‘s) has teamed up with Baauer (the guy who brought us the whole Harlem Shake movement) on a new single called Higher. Higher features Jay Z, and the video just premiered the other day. None of the artists actually appear in the video/short film; instead Nabil shot the footage in Kerala, India and created a powerful story of honor and revenge, inspired by the Kalaripayattu (Indian martial arts) warriors. The video definitely has me yearning for more, which is why I was psyched to hear that a longer film might be in development. Peep the video for more! Are you into it?
'Breakfast Can Wait'
If you are anything like me (or PITNBr Alecia), every time Prince does anything, you think of Dave Chappelle. Since walking away from his hit sketch comedy series Chappelle’s Show and the $50 bajillion contract that came with, Dave Chappelle has been deemed a recluse, popping up here and there for the occasional live performance. But many of us will never, ever forget the amazingness that was his show, and the True Hollywood stories he used to do with Eddie Murphy‘s big brother Charlie Murphy. Apparently, Prince hasn’t forgotten any of that awesomeness either. And now that he’s discovered and embraced Twitter (and, perhaps the internet as a whole) he’s sharing the hilariously appropriate cover art for his new single, Breakfast Can Wait. Chappelle fans will totally get the pancake reference, LOL. Click inside for more and listen to a snippet of the new track, above! It’s on friggen YouTube!
"Let's Get Started"
Fox has released a first teaser trailer for the upcoming 5th season of Glee and as you can see above, it looks like the show will be giving us business as usual when it returns next month. We learned yesterday that the tribute episode to the late Glee actor Cory Monteith won’t be as gritty as was previously suggested and by the look of this first teaser, it would appear that the new season will be chock full of the usual saccharine happiness that made it so popular in the first place. Check out the teaser embedded above to get your first look at the new season. Are you interested in see more?
