Last month our dear Britney Spears shared a photo from the set of the music video of her new single Perfume and today she brings us a quick preview of the finished video. The full music video for the song will be released next week but in the meantime, we get a tiny taste of what’s to come with the just-released :36 second preview clip embedded above. While I can’t say that I’m really diggin’ on the way the video scenes are presented in this preview clip, I am excited to see how the final product turned out. Oh and as for all of that retirement talk we heard yesterday, I’m just going to pretend that IT NEVER HAPPENED. Nope, never happened at all.

At the end of October we got to check out the lyric video for Kelly Clarkson‘s new Xmas single Underneath the Tree, the first from her new holiday album Wrapped in Red. Today we get to check out the just-released official music video for the song. As you can see in the video embed above, this music video for Underneath the Tree was filmed as a sort of live performance of the song with fun behind the scenes footage interspersed thruout. Kelly looks radiant with her tiny but burgeoning baby bump. Check out the video and see if it gets you into the holiday spirit :)
Last week we learned that Rihanna met up with Eminem in Detroit, MI so that the pair could film the music video for his song The Monster but that video ain’t quite ready for release yet … BECAUSE, Em just released his video for his current single Rap God. You may recall that we got our first listen of Rap God in October and now we get to see the visuals that Eminem created for the song. As you can see in the video embedded above, Em is channeling the 80′s character Max Hedroom as he spits his rapid-fire (and controversial) lyrics. Em fans should be impressed. His critics? Yeah, probably not so much. Pick a side and enjoy … or not.

"I'm like Marina Abramović"
Last week Kanye West released a silly music video for his new single Bound 2 that he wants us to believe was made intentionally silly for the sake of “art”. In the wake of the release of that music video, James Franco and Seth Rogan created their own (brilliantly superior) homage to the Bound 2 music video and PITNB readers had a LOT to say about the clip. Today we hear from Kanye himself about the inspiration behind the Bound 2 music video in a new interview he gave to The Breakfast Club on Power 105.1 FM and according to him, the cheesiness of the video is intentional. The video grew from his desire to take the idea behind those “white trash t-shirts and make it into a video” (ie. t-shirts like THIS). You see, like performance artist Marina Abramović, Kanye West is an avant garde artiste. More »
On Monday, Britney Spears‘s little sister Jamie Lynn Spears surprised us all by dropping a new Country song on us titled How Could I Want More. Altho I do not consider myself a Country music fan, I had to admit that I was impressed with the song at first listen. A day later, JL went one step further and released the music video for the track — which you can watch in full above. The more I listen to the song, the more I like it. While I do not listen to Country music at all these days, I was surrounded by Country music the entire time I lived in Oklahoma City, OK while in collage at the University of Oklahoma. I learned an appreciation for the genre and can admit when I hear a Country song that I like (even to this day, I still enjoy songs by Alison Krauss, Tracey Lawrence and Alan Jackson). There is something about the slide guitar that just gets me … I feel the pain, I feel the hurt and longing … I FEEL THE FEELS. I love the simplicity of this music video. Just Jamie Lynn in the recording studio singing her song behind a big microphone. This is a strong first effort by the young Ms. Spears. I’m really looking forward to what she throws at us next. I suspect a full album is on the way shortly. Are you a fan?
All the Stuff you Hate in One Music Video
What do you get when you take a producer/performer who has a penchant for annoying people and you put that person in a music video with another performer with an even BIGGER penchant for annoying even MORE people? Well, you get the new will.i.am music video for his song Feelin’ Myself that features Miley Cyrus on guest vocals/twerking. Yes, folks, all the things that you kinda really hate all balled up in one music video. It KILLS me to admit that I kinda love the beat of this track (so, yes, I may have bopped along to the song as this video played) but I really do think the world has had quite enough of these two individually, let alone in collaboration. EVEN STILL, I suggest you check out the video above and see what you think. Do you actually enjoy this song (even a little bit like I kinda do)? Or, are you just SO OVER every single thing that this video represents?
Late last month we got our first listen of Eminem‘s new duet with Rihanna titled The Monster and today we learn that the BFFs are teaming up for a music video for the track. Rihanna posted a photo on her official Facebook profile that was snapped on the Detroit set of The Monster music video and as you can see below, she and Em look ready for business. In other, less happy Eminem news, we also learn today that the childhood home that he grew up in near 8 Mile road in Detroit (the one that was badly damaged in a fire) has been completely demolished :( I guess it’s a good news/bad news kind of day for Eminem.
