"womp womp womp"
My friend Michael pointed me in the direction of a hilariously brilliant parody song that pokes a bit of fun at Nine Inch Nails mastermind Trent Reznor and his songwriting style. Frederick Scott, who makes very clear on his Twitter profile that he is a big fan of Reznor‘s, penned and performs the song This Is A Trent Reznor Song which I think NIN fans (and anyone with a sense of humor, really) will enjoy. We’ve seen over the years that TR has a great sense of humor so I’d like to think that he’ll see the humor in this parody and be flattered … tho, we also know he has been in the best mood lately, so … yeah. In any event, click below to hear this parody and let it brighten up the rest of your day. More »
"In the end, I'm still the Same Girl'
Last week we got our first listen of a new Jennifer Lopez song titled Girls, which may or may not be included on J. Lo‘s upcoming new album, but today we get to see the music video for her official new single Same Girl. As you may recall, Jenny went back to the block she grew up on late last month to film the music video for this song and today we get to see the final product. I have to say, I love the way this song sounds … in that it sounds much like the music she used to put out on her first few albums. We’ve heard that her upcoming new album is supposed to be a return to her original sound so, yeah, I’d say she’s on the right track with Same Girl. The video is great because it looks like it could’ve been filmed back in 2001. La Diva Latina, y’all, in full effect. I’m impressed by this song and encouraged by her album to come. Are you?
The full video is out later today
A couple of weeks ago we got our first listen of Shakira‘s new single Can’t Remember to Forget You which features Rihanna on guest vocals and today we get our first look at scenes from the song’s music video in a just-released behind the scenes video clip. The full music video for Can’t Remember to Forget You will be revealed during an E! special that will air tonight at 8PM ET/PT and then will be released online. BUT, while we wait to see the finished product, we get to see how Shak and Ri got along on the set of their music video. Check out the clip above and see what you think.
Pretty Good 20 Years
I couldn’t let the day go by without mentioning that the absolutely AMAZING album Under the Pink by Tori Amos was released 20 years ago today. 20. Years. I about fell onto the floor when I realized that today is the 20th anniversary of the release of Pink back on January 28, 1994. OMG. I’m not even kidding, I have butterflies in my stomach just thinking about it as I type these words. When I think back to 1994 … man, that was more than a few lifetimes ago. Under the Pink is Tori‘s second album and I wasn’t into her yet when her debut album Little Earthquakes was released in 1992. But I had heard that Trent Reznor provided guest vocals on a track for Tori‘s UTP album … so when it was released 20 years ago today I had to pick up a copy … and the rest is history. More »
Official Single Release Day
Early last week we got our first listen of Kylie Minogue‘s new single Into The Blue, the first from her forthcoming new album Kiss Me Once which is due out in March. Today, on the official single release day, Kylie gives us the lyric video for the track. Unlike some artists who tend to not appear in their lyric videos, Kylie has made it a very good habit of showing up and appearing in her lyric videos … which gives fans a little more of their fave artist. We are still waiting for the release of the music video for Into The Blue but, for now, we get this great lyric video to tide us over. The more I listen to this song, the more I love it. If this is a sign of what’s to come, then I think Kiss Me Once is going to be a stellar release from the fabulous Lady Min.
Coming Out of the Dark
Last month we got our first listen of Glee star Lea Michele‘s debut solo single Cannonball, the first from her debut solo album Louder, and today we get to check out the just-released music video for the track. As you can see in the embed above, Lea is having her Coming Out of the Dark moment with the powerful imagery featured in the clip. As we saw in that cheeky photo she shared on Instagram earlier this month, she is ready to put the pain and sadness of 2013 behind her and move forward into a brighter and happier 2014 … a fact that is further emphasized in this music video for Cannonball. Check out the video in full in the embed above and see what you think of Lea‘s debut solo music video.

"Livin' in a Powerpuff world"
Last month we got our first look at the new version of the Powerpuff Girls animated series that will return in celebration of their 15th anniversary in CGI animation (as opposed to the original 2D animation that we know and love). Today we get to check out a just-released music video for the show titled I Wish I Was a Powerpuff Girl by former Beatles member Ringo Starr. As you may recall, we learned last month that Ringo will appear in this new Powerpuff Girls episode so it only makes sense that he would appear in the first music video for the ep. Click below and check out the video in full. More »
NEW MUSIC NEWS!!!
So, a year ago last January Kylie Minogue parted ways with her longtime manager and told the world that she was planning to take a break from making music. In February, all of that changed when Kylie signed to Jay Z‘s Roc Nation management company and started working on a new music sound with Pharrell. In May, she dropped a fun little single called Skirt but it was clear that she was still not ready to release a full new album. Now, all these months later, Kylie appears ready to deliver the 12th album of her career. On December 31, Kylie told us to be ready for new music titled Into The Blue and today we get to see a photo of Kylie on the set of the music video for her new single. We don’t know when we’ll get to hear Kylie‘s new single or album but I have a feeling we’ll be hearing something soon … soon … SOON! More »
Last weekend we saw photos of Jennifer Lopez on the streets of her hometown in NYC, NY returning to her roots as she filmed a music video for her new song Same Girl, which will likely appear on her upcoming new album (due out later this year). Today we learn that the video she shot will be released this month to coincide with her return as judge on the upcoming new season of American Idol. J. Lo seems intent on capitalizing as much as she can on her return to Idol and seems anxious to help foster her music career … which is a very smart move, I think. Click below to learn more about when we can expect to see the Same Girl music video in full. More »
