Brought to you by PITNB Intern Iris!
We announced recently that PITNBr Iris is now (and henceforth forever more/until she gets too fancy for us) The PITNB intern Iris. Lemme tell you about Iris. She’s kind of a big deal, and she has been saving my life over the past couple of weeks, helping out with #TBT, awesome galleries (like the Celebrity Hallowe’en Costumes, which I love), and now handling much of our Facebook stuff. Last week I asked her to help me find some creepy Throwback music videos for Hallowe’en, and she came up with some great stuff. Click inside for more!
New music from his upcoming new album
Back in July we got our first look at singer-turned-actor Marilyn Manson in the final season of Sons of Anarchy (where he plays an incarcerated white supremacist gangster) but today we get to see MM back in his role as rock star. Manson has released for free a new song titled Third Day of a Seven Day Binge that will be included on his as-yet untitled new album, due out in 2015. Click the embed above to hear the song in full then head over to the official MM website HERE to download the track, if it tickles your fancy. Marilyn Manson is playing a string of intimate Hallowe’en concerts here in SoCal this week and I’ll be seeing his show in Santa Ana tomorrow night. It looks like MM is trying to get his music career going again so … we’ll see how well that goes for him.
Back in June we got to check out the brilliant Ok Go music video for their song The Writing’s On The Wall and today we learn that they are back with another brilliantly brilliant music video for their new single I Won’t Let You Down. As you may know, Ok Go have made a reputation out of making really impressively inventive music videos and this newest video is proof that they’ve still got it. If you enjoy perfectly synchronized choreography timed perfectly with the opening and closing of umbrellas, filmed in one long shot, then this is the music video for you. The song’s not so bad either ;)
"Head up, head up Keep holding, holding"
Chvrches released their debut album The Bones of What You Believe last year but it is proving to be the album that keeps on giving. The group has just released the official music video for Under The Tide, the latest single from their album, which you can watch in full above. This clip may remind some of you fans of ’90s alternative rock of Matthew Sweet‘s music video for Girlfriend which also incorporated anime scenes in his video … an effect that I greatly approve of. Honestly, my favorite Chvrches songs are the ones with Lauren on lead vocals but Under The Tide is a great song, now with a great video.
And it's really not all that good
For weeks now, One Direction has been teasing the release of their music video for their new single Steal My Girl and at long last … it has been released. Honestly, I’m not crazy about the song and I really don’t like the video. The best thing about this video is Danny DeVito being Danny DeVito. The worst thing about the video is, well, everything else. Have a look, see what you think.
#KnuckIfYouBuck is now 10 Years Old!!!
So, here’s what’s going on with me. My youngest son just turned, one and ever since he was about 3 months old, I’ve been talking to his Dad about this upcoming weekend. I’m going to let you all in on what my life has been like for the past 12 months: insane. Dark. Exhausting. Terrifying. All things I’ve been carefully concealing when I post these kinds of Instagram photos, LMAO. I’M TIRED! And I could tell when Josev arrived that I was going to have to do something I’ve never done before, and take a weekend off of motherhood. Yes, I’m done. For one weekend. And that weekend is this weekend, during which I’m going to be playing this video (and the dirty version with ya boy Lil’ Scrappy) all. Effing. Weekend. And drinking wine by the bottle. And TAKING LIKE 3 NAPS BACK TO BACK (then waking up to Knuck if You Buck) BECAUSE OMG my partna-in-babymaking is taking the kids away for the weekend! Nobody call meeee! And listen to Crime Mob (I love Crime Mob… and—fun fact—the only college dorm party I ever threw/the only party I’ve ever thrown in my life was called Knuck if You Buck—shouts-out to my roommate Ángela—because that is how much this song defined my college years. Sort of.)
Strut Your Stuff, Gwen
A few days ago the world was blessed with the first solo song from Gwen Stefani in 6 years and today we get to see the music video for that new song. Just a short time ago, Gwen dropped the music video for Baby Don’t Lie after she previewed the vid on The Voice last night. TRUTH BE TOLD, I’m not at all blown away by this video. It’s colorful, yes, but it’s not really all that interesting. Without the green screen, there’s not much to this video. But, that being said, I really love Baby Don’t Lie the more I hear it and now that Gwen is releasing music videos and is teasing OTHER NEW SONGS, I can’t help but be super excited for what’s to come from Ms. Stefani. What do you think of this music video for Baby Don’t Lie? Do you love it … or nah?
Last week we got to see the lyric video for Fergie Ferg‘s new single LA LOVE (La La) and today we learn that Fergie and her crew filmed the official music video for the song over the weekend. Fergie was spotted in a tricked out party bus on the streets of LA for the music video shoot. As you can see in these photos, the look of the video appears to be garishly tacky … which is perfect for a Fergie video. I can’t wait to see the final product.
Announces the video for 'Baby Don't Lie' is out TOMORROW
Gwen Stefani is super serious about her return to the music biz because not only did she officially release her new single Baby Don’t Lie today but she also released a snippet of another new song titled Spark The Fire, which you can listen to above. Gwen previewed the song on the radio earlier this morning and as you can hear, it’s a damn fine song (OMG OMG she’s back again). Just moments ago on her official Twitter profile, Gwen announced that the completed music video for Baby Don’t Lie will be released tomorrow!
My video for #BabyDontLie premieres tomorrow on @Vevo! Tune in to #TheVoice tonight for a sneak peek & join my Twitter Q&A at 10pm EST!
OMG, so much new Gwen stuff right now! I was hoping she might release another single this year … at this rate, she may release her entire new album by Thanksgiving :D
"If you really need me ..."
It’s been a few weeks since Ariana Grande released her collab with The Weeknd, Love Me Harder, so it’s about time we get the now-standard lyric video accompaniment. While we wait for the official music video to hit the Internets, let’s bide our time with this just-released lyric video. Do you know all the words yet?
