Lana Del Rey has released another of her trademark music videos, this time for the title track of her new album Ultraviolence. Despite the fact that LDR tends to say ridiculous things in interviews (likely, for attention), she does manage to consistently put out music videos that keep her 100% on brand. In this new video, Lana plays a bride bathed in grainy black & white who looks forlorn and heartsick. Click the embed above and have a look. I love this song, I don’t mind the video. More of this and less interviews, LDR. For both our sakes, please.
Her debut solo album 'Crush Songs' is on the way
Karen O, the frontwoman for the band Yeah Yeah Yeahs, announced last month that she would be releasing her first solo album later this year. Today we get our first look and listen of her debut solo single Rapt. Rapt is the first song released from her new album Crush Songs, which will be released on September 9. As you can see above, the video is a nice compliment to the sparse acoustic track. I love Karen O. I’ve been waiting for her to release a solo album for years now, so this is very welcome news for me. Check out the video and prepare yourselves for what will undoubtedly be an amazing album to come.

We got to hear Hilary Duff‘s NEW single Chasing the Sun yesterday and today, we get to see the just-released music video. In the clip embedded above, we see Hilary acting out a scenario where she is an overworked woman suffering in a bland office environment dreaming of the lazy summer days at the beach. It’s not the most unique of music video treatments but it is a cute video overall. I’m digging the song, the video is adorable … Hilary Duff is BACK, y’all.
Mya, Sisqo, DMX... and the Spice Girls, obviously
PITNBr Erica Croce changed. My. Life. Yesterday she sent me a link to The Nostalgia Machine and I haven’t been the same since! So today’s #ThrowbackThursday is dedicated to her… and to anybody else who remembers when Sisqo and Mya collaborated on It’s All About Me and basically changed the world. But before we get started on this week’s collection, can I just say that I’m still in love with our list of Songs That Make You Ugly-Cry from last week? I didn’t get to reply to all of the comments, but I wanted to thank ALL of you for sharing your fave tracks, and for also opening up about your personal connections to some of them. Y’all are the best. Click inside for more!
Bae Bae's kids
Back in May, Pharrell performed his new song Come Get It Bae LIVE during an episode of The Voice as an introduction to the show as one of the two new judges/coaches coming next season (along with Gwen Stefani). Today we get to see the just-released music video for Bae that features guest star Miley Cyrus. The clip is a cute celebration of women … and then Miley is included as well. I dunno. Click the embed above, have a looksee for yourselves.
He's so 'Handy'
Yesterday I shared a pair of parody music videos by Weird Al Yankovic that turned Robin Thicke‘s Blurred Lines into Word Crimes and Pharrell‘s Happy into Tacky. Today, I’m sharing two other Weird Al videos that brilliantly parody Lorde‘s song Royals and turns it into Foil (as in, aluminum foil) and Iggy Azalea‘s Fancy into Handy. There is none greater in the parody song game than Weird Al so please take the time to watch these two videos and see why the man may FINALLY get his first #1 album when the Billboard chart comes out next week. Watch Weird Al‘s Lorde parody above and his Iggy parody below. More »
Boyz II Men, Green Day, Mariah Carey & More!
This morning I was a hot, crying mess over that baby Reddit thread, so I figured I’d stick with that theme for our #ThrowbackThursday musical selections. I always tell myself that I’m not a big cryer but OMG that is so not true when it comes to good music and good movies. All of my favorite movies make me cry. I think the greatest example of that is Million Dollar Baby, the first movie that actually had me silent-ugly-sobbing in the theatre… LMAO. Interestingly enough, music had a lot to do with that as well. I have this special edition DVD set of the movie that includes the soundtrack and it’s amazing how much music sets the tone for things. So yeah, get ready to get your ugly-cry on today (or, at least, a little teary-eyed). Click inside for more!
Grumpy Cat and Friends, actually
It’s taken some time but at long last, Grumpy Cat has released her first music video. Grumpy Cat, along with other so-called “celebrity cats” (including Nala Cat, Hamilton the Hipster Cat, Oskar the Blind Cat & Klaus) has teamed up with Friskies for the release of this music video for the song Cat Summer which features these cats laying around being cats. Yeah, not all that exciting. BUT, for every time this video is viewed, Friskies will donate a one meal to cats in need at shelters all around the country so … watch this video, repeatedly. I mean, the Internet was made for the existence of cat videos so it really shouldn’t be too hard to watch one more video, especially for such a good cause.

Stop what you’re doing RIGHT NOW and watch the just released music video for Paris Hilton‘s new single/song of the summer Come Alive by clicking the embed above. Having watched the video myself, I know that it may be difficult to get thru the whole thing without LOLing your ass off but … give it a chance. Come Alive is one of the best songs released this year (so far) and is a bona fide contender for song of the summer. Paris the pop star is back, y’all!! We are not worthy!!
So … I gotta know … what do YOU think of this music video?!
