Lana Del Rey just dropped her new music video “Freak” off of her Honeymoon album — and you know what that means right? You’re going to have to completely stop what you’re doing and clear out some space in your schedule because this one is 11 minutes long. But just like her previous singles, including “High By the Beach,” it’s probably going to leave you mesmerized! The video, which features singer/songwriter Father John Misty, has a ’70s California feel and the two of them doing acid. With lyrics like, “Screw your anonymity/ Loving me is all you need to feel/ Like I do,” you knew a video like this one was coming. At around the 5:30 mark of the video, “Freak” fades down and the opening notes of Claude Debussy‘s “Clair de Lune” begin, leading to a five-minute slow-motion sequence where Lana, John and a group a mermaid-looking women swirl underwater. Watch the music video above — it’ll definitely put you in a Coachella mood!
Nashville star Hayden Panettiere goes head to head with Eva Longoria on Thursday’s episode of Lip Sync Battle and it looks like things are going to heat UP. In the preview that just dropped, Hayden perfectly rocks Christina Aguilera‘s “Lady Marmalade” costume, crazy blonde afro and corset perfectly in tact. She lip sync’s Lil Kim‘s rap from the Moulin Rouge song, dancing with just enough sass, until Christina herself busts onto stage with her signature belt. Awwwww yeah! If y’all forget already, Christina guest starred on Nashville for a bit, so this performance was a reunion in itself. How is Eva going to top that? Can’t see what she has up her sleeve… More »
Happy Friday! Zayn Malik debuted his first official solo single, “Pillowtalk,” late Thursday night — and we must admit that we are NOT disappointed. The sultry R&B jam offers a lot of what you wouldn’t find in a One Direction song (or video for that matter): naked women, references to Zayn’s sex life, and his girlfriend, Gigi Hadid. And with lyrics like “So we’ll piss off the neighbors” and “F–king you, and fighting on/ It’s our paradise and it’s our war zone,” you know he means business! Plus, in the video, Zayn and Gigi are all over each other — kissing, hugging, and more kissing. In an interview with Sunday Times Culture magazine earlier this week, Zayn described “Pillowtalk” as pure and raw. “I think I’m pretty black and white about what it’s about,” he said. “Everybody has sex, and it’s something people wanna hear about. It’s part of everybody’s life, a very big part of life! And you don’t wanna sweep it under the carpet. It has to be talked about.” Oh boy! If the rest of the album, Mind of Mine, (out in March) is anything like this song (we really hope it is), we won’t be talking about his 1D ties for much longer. Watch the video above — we promise you’ll be watching it over and over again.

Can you believe it’s been ten years since “My Humps?” We haven’t seen too much from Fergie lately, minus a few photos here and there. So it’s refreshing to hear from Idolator that her second solo album is due out in March. Fans were expecting the album at the end of 2015, but hey, sometimes these things take a while. According to Women’s Wear Daily, the singer went to Paris last weekend “to shoot the cover and press materials for her long-awaited second solo album.” Apparently Fergie is currently shooting a music video in Paris today, and will also be shooting one in London later in the week. Oh snap. More »
Awwww. Now that it it’s official that One Direction is on hiatus, the band decided to surprise all their fans by releasing the video for “History,” their fifth single from album Made in The Am. And it’s enough to make everyone just tear up and cry! The video features footage of Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, and Louis Tomlinson, spanning the band’s entire career, from the moment they started on The X Factor. And they look so happy in all the clips! But that’s not all. The video also features some never before seen footage from Zayn Malik, who left the band last year. Grab your tissues. More »
You know, the days when we wore those giant hoop earrings and baggy clothes, and before we were texting all the time. Rashida Jones recently recorded a ’90s-sounding R&B track with Sunny Levine, called “Flip and Rewind.” The name already summons all the nostalgia, but the video really takes us there. It opens with Rashida on set working. She goes into her trailer, and FaceTimes with Jermaine Dupri, lamenting on how much she misses the ’90s, until she’s transported there.
Rashida also co-directed the video with her writing partner Will McCormack. More »
WOOHOO! David Bowie has a new LP coming out called, “★“ (pronounced “Blackstar). In November he released a teaser the short film and video for the album’s first single with the same title, which is creepy as helllllll. A woman is walking through ancient ruins, three people have been crucified like scarecrows, and Bowie himself stands with a book with a black star on it, looking like a priest. Well, Bowie just released his second video for the LP, another creeper called “Lazarus.” In this video Bowie plays a mental patient with bandaged eyes. More »
If you existed on this planet in in 2000 you definitely remember the *NSync video for “It’s Gonna Be Me,” or as I like to call it, “It’s Gonna Be May.” In the video the boy band members get turned into little dolls who come to life in a massive toy store. It was actually a pretty freakin’ awesome music video, directed by Wayne Isham. Wellllll Wayne just teamed up with Demi Lovato and Fall Out Boy to do their video for the “Irresistible” remix.
The video pays homage to *NSync’s, as Demi is featured as the toy store employee, and the guys from Fall Out Boy become packaged toys. More »
Remember when you used to dork out with your friends to Brandy and Monica‘s “The Boy Is Mine?” I’m pretty sure I sang it with a friend for karaoke at the senior prom after party. Well, Monica has a new album coming out. Finally–I’ve been wondering about her. The album’s called Code Red, and she was recently interviewed by HuffPost Live about it. In said interview, Monica addressed the song that pitted her and Brandy against each other, and made us all start choosing sides.
“People are still asking, ‘Who was the boy?’ and ‘Who got the boy?’ There was no boy! It just was a song!” More »
