OMG, please let these videos keep coming!!!
Last weekend I shared absolutely BRILLIANT behind the scenes b-roll footage that was filmed on the set of Madonna‘s 1990 music video for Vogue. As you may recall, that 30 video gave us an unprecedented look at the creative process that goes into the making of an iconic music video. Today we get to see more behind the scenes b-roll footage, this time from Maddy‘s music video for Rain (from her 1992 album Erotica) which was released in 1993. Like the Vogue b-roll video, this new footage gives us a really cool look at Madonna at work. I am completely in love. More »

Earlier this year, singer Eden xo released a new single titled The Weekend which quickly became one of my favorite pop songs o’ the moment. The infectious beat and fun lyrics struck me at first listen and was immediately added to my running playlist (the highest honor I can bestow on any song). AT LONG LAST, Eden xo released the music video for The Weekend that is too cute not to share. Have you ever wondered what it might be like for Disney Princesses to get together and party with friends here in Hollywood? Well, wonder no more. Click the embed above to see the video for Eden xo‘s The Weekend and see how Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, Belle, Ariel and co. like to get down and party. Keep an eye out for cameos by singer Bonnie McKee (as Cinderella) drag queen Vicky Vox (as Ursula) and Vine star Matt Cutshall (as Prince Phillip). Enjoy!

Back in April and May, Kanye West delivered a pair of inspired performances of his new single All Day at Coachella and at a NBA Finals basketball game, which will be featured on his upcoming new album SWISH. This weekend, West debuted the official music video for All Day along with a short film titled I Feel Like That, which was directed by Steve McQueen. The screening took place in front of an intimate group of people and has yet to be formally released online. BUT, thanks to one industrious fan, we can watch the All Day / I Feel Like That video in the embed above. Kanye described himself to the assembled audience of 120 people as a “bad celebrity, but a pretty good artist” … which I leave to YOU as the final judge. Check out All Day / I Feel Like That above and see what you think.
30 Glorious Minutes of B-Roll
B-Roll footage from the set of Madonna‘s 1990 music video for Vogue has made its way to the Internets, giving us an entirely charming and completely unexpected behind the scenes look at the creation of this iconic music video. As you can see above, this video clocks in at just under 30 minutes and it gives us a really amazing look the work that went into filming the video. The alt angles, the scenes in between takes, that smile … this video gives fans a look at a side of Madonna that we don’t usually have access to. I’ve watched this video twice the whole way through already and I’ll probably watch it a few more times. Madonna was already a superstar before she filmed the music video for Vogue … but this behind the scenes b-roll shows us the birth of an icon. Please enjoy.

Since Janet Jackson released her new single No Sleeep back in June, she was honored at The BET Awards with the Ultimate Icon Award and she announced in July a second leg of concert dates for her Unbreakable World Tour. Today, at last, Janet releases the music video for her single No Sleeep. The video is laid back and chill, just like the song, and I think it complements the vibe of the track very well. I’m hoping that the release of this video will mark the end of the No Sleeep promo and push her toward the release of single #2 from her upcoming new album — hopefully a huge dance track. But, in the meantime, let’s get No Sleeep.
Yesterday we got to hear the sick Dave Audé remix of Demi Lovato‘s new smash summer single Cool For The Summer, which will be featured on a remix EP out on August 7. Today we get to see the just-released music video for Cool For The Summer and, people, it’s so great. Demi rounded up some girlfriends, went for a drive around LA on a night completely without traffic and sings the only song that I am obsessed with right now. Check out the video above and see how much fun it can be to spend the summer with Ms. Demi Lovato :)
The Song of Summer '15 is ready to party
Altho I had pinned my hopes on another song becoming the unofficial song of summer 2015, I have to admit that Demi Lovato‘s luscious pop track Cool For The Summer has quickly become the only pop song that I am in lust with this summer. Ever since I first heard the track a few weeks ago, it has been on constant replay on my computer … on my phone … in my car. Demi has a great track record of releasing really fun pop songs (her single Give Your Heart a Break is fave in my ever-growing running playlist) but she’s really hit it out of the park with Cool For The Summer. Today we get to check out a high energy, dancey remix of Cool For The Summer by Dave Audé — which you can hear in full above — which is featured on the forthcoming Cool For The Summer Remix EP due out on August 7. This is a remix of the song that you are likely to hear bangin’ in the club when you hit the dancefloor this summer. Additionally, Demi will be releasing the music video for Cool For The Summer this week, which you can preview below. More »
"Y'all should know me well enough"
The very inventive folks at New York magazine have done it again with the latest installment of their Vulture Remix series of videos. They came up with the inspired idea to mash-up footage of Miss Piggy from The Muppets with audio from Rihanna‘s song Bitch Better Have My Money. The result? Perfection. Check out the video above and try and convince me that Miss Piggy does NOT sing this song better than Rihanna does … because you can’t, because she does. Enjoy.
"I know I need to feel released"
A few days ago we learned the really great news that Chvrches have set September 20 as the release date for their sophomore album, titled Every Open Eye. Today we get to hear the first single from the new album in full. Chvrches have released a lyric video for the new single, Leave A Trace, which you can watch above. The song, I’m happy to hear, is very much in vein with the sound that Chvrches have become famous for. I absolutely LOVE the sweet, poppy, electronic music that the Scottish group crafts so expertly. If Leave A Trace is a sign of what we can expect when Every Open Eye is released, then we are in for a treat. Have a listen, see what you think. It’s a really great song, yeah?

THIS NEW MUSIC VIDEO IS ALL THAT MATTERS
It’s been a while since we talked about Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and I’m here to report that he is still EVERYTHING. I just watched his Sexy Motha video for maybe the third time (maybe the fifth), and I don’t understand how this is the first time something like this has happened. We did have Stacy’s Mom back in the day, but this is very different. The moms in this incredible music video, made in collaboration with The Gregory Brothers, don’t look like Stacy’s mom or Stiffler’s mom—they look like your Mom. And my Mom… and me. LMAO.
