'The Youngblood Chronicles' Continue
Fall Out Boy is releasing a music video for each of the 11 songs featured on their album Save Rock And Roll. When taken in sum, the 11 videos will make up the larger narrative of something the band is calling The Youngblood Chronicles. FOB have just released the 9th video of the series for their song Rat A Tat. As you can see in the embed above, Courtney Love stars in the video as a totalitarian dictator bent on the destruction of the forces of Fall Out Boy … or something like that. Honestly, I like seeing this side of C. Love. The woman has really settled down in the past year or so … dare I say she’s now relatively normal? With a new web series online now, a memoir reportedly on the way and now guest appearances like this, Courtney Love seems to have finally gotten her house in order. I’m not crazy about this FOB song but I really dig the video. Do you?
"How the hell did this shit happen?"
An industrious fan has recreated the music video for Beyoncé‘s sexy single Drunk In Love using nothing but emoji icons. The result is nothing short of ***Flawless. Watch above, marvel, lurve. Enjoy.
Whatever! Iggy & Charli get 'Fancy'
Sooo, rapper Iggy Azalea has released a music video for her song Fancy, which features Charli XCX on guest vocals, and as you can see in the video embedded above, it is probably the best music video that has ever been made in the history of music videos. Iggy pays BRILLIANT homage to the 1995 movie Clueless with this music video and I totally love it entirely … despite the fact that the song kinda bugs the ish out of me. Full disclosure: I’m not a huge Iggy Azalea fan. The way she enunciates her lyrics irritates me to no end. But, that being said, having watched this music video about 45 times already, I guess I have to confess that the song is growing on me (due in large part to the fact that I love Charli XCX). Whether or not you love the song, you have to watch this video in full — put it on mute if you have to. Iggy‘s tribute to Clueless is only everything. Please enjoy (I know you will).
Like, "licking" frisky
Latino pop superstars Ricky Martin and Jennifer Lopez are featured guests on Wisin‘s new single Adrenalina and as you can see in the video embedded above, they are also featured stars in the just-released music video for the song. For some reason, mostly likely because of the high level of Latinoness in the video, Ricky and J. Lo get really amorous together in this video … like, to the point where Ricky felt compelled to lick Jennifer‘s ear. I suppose it’s possible that Ricky is merely playing a straight character in the video and that’s where this licking business comes from but … I really do think the latino level in the video is to blame. Check out this video for Adrenalina and see what you think. Does video make you want to lick the person closest to you right now?
I have no idea what is happening here
Last week we got to check out a really cool photo of musician BFFs Brody Dalle and Shirley Manson of Garbage on the set of Brody‘s new music video Meet The Foetus / Oh The Joy, the first from her debut solo album Diploid Love. Today we get to see the finished music video … and it is awesome. It’s a totally insane video that is half animation and half rocker chicks kicking ass that you have to see for yourselves. Brody and Shirley make a kickass team, it’s great to see them together in this kickass video.
HAIM, that sister band that has been infecting the airwaves with their catchy debut single The Wire for the past few months, have released a music video for their new single If I Could Change Your Mind. As you can see in the video embedded above, the sisters (Este Arielle, Danielle Sari and Alana Mychal) are out to prove that they can do more than just sing and player their instruments … they can also dance choreography with the best of them. Honestly, I’m not the biggest HAIM fan (mostly because they sound too much like Amy Grant for my liking) but there is something special about this video that appeals to me. Check out the video above and see if it appeals to you as well. Are there any big time HAIM fans out there? What do you think of the ladies’ dancing?
The Most Watched Vevo Clip EVER
Justin Bieber‘s music video for his smash hit single Baby has just been certified by Vevo as its most-watched video EVER with 1 billion views:
@justinbieber’s “Baby” music video has reached 1 BILLION views on @vevo, our most watched clip ever http://vevo.ly/hW8OXO #BabyBillionVEVO
This certification is mind-blowing, yes, but a look at the count tally on the Vevo video page HERE shows no view tally and the number on the You Tube site HERE only shows at present 994,939,965 views. My assumption is that the Vevo site has the views that make up the difference to equal 1 billion. How many times have YOU watched the Baby music video? If you would like to add to the 1,000,000,000,000 view count, you can do so by watching the video embedded above … baby, baby, baby OOOOH!
'Nunca Me Acuerdo de Olvidarte', now with 100% less Rihanna
Late last month we got to see the music video for Shakira‘s duet with Rihanna, Can’t Remember To Forget You. Today we get to see the music video for the Spanish version of the song titled Nunca Me Acuerdo de Olividarte and as you can see in the embed above, Rihanna has been excluded from this version of the video. As much as I love the Shakira/Rihanna match-up, I think this song works MUCH better in Spanish. I can really only understand every other word (ok, every 5th or 15th word … sorry mom) but to me the song sounds much stronger in Spanish. Check out the video above and see what you think. Altho there is no Rihanna in the clip, you may be happy to see that there is still plenty of Shakira ass in the vid.
BUT, if you really need your Rihanna fix, you can click below and watch her and Shakira in the music video for the English version of this song, Can’t Remember to Forget You. More »
Katy's Best Video Ever
Way back in September we got our first listen of Katy Perry‘s current single Dark Horse and just yesterday, we saw video of her amazing technicolored over-the-top Egyptian-themed performance of Dark Horse at the 2014 BRIT Awards in London. Today we get to see her just-released music video for the track and I have to say … the girl has truly outdone herself. Katy has made a name for herself by putting out elaborate and extremely entertaining music videos but this video for Dark Horse has to be my fave ever. She has taken the Egyptian theme and has really gone all out in a way that I just love entirely. The styling, the colors, the choreography, the weird storyline that is kinda like Michael Jackson‘s Remember The Time but not really. I am in LUST with this video. Check it out in the embed above and see what you think. I can’t stop watching this video … and now I kinda want a jewel-encrusted pair of grillz. WHAT?!?!
Last week we got to hear the debut solo single from The Distillers‘s frontwoman Brody Dalle and today we learn a bit about her debut solo album. Diploid Love will be released on April 29 and as you can read below, the album was composed with love by Brody and a group of her closest friends. Garbage frontwoman and BFF Shirley Manson provides guest vocals on Brody‘s single Meet The Foetus/Oh The Joy and the pair teamed up for the filming of the music video last weekend. Read on to learn all the deets about Brody‘s new album and see a photo of Brody and Shirley on the set of their new music video. More »
