What do you get when you mix a movie as awesome as Star Wars with a movie as fun as Frozen? Why, you get a parody video that features characters from Star Wars spoofing the Frozen song Do You Want to Build a Snowman? by turning it into Do You Wanna Kills Some Rebels? I’ve already watched this video about 10 times, so, I’m a fan. Check it out about and see what you think.
With A Surprise Cameo By ME
Back in April we got to see the music video for the NEW Veruca Salt song The Museum of Broken Relationships, which is one of TWO new songs that the newly reformed band released a couple of months ago on Record Store Day. Today we get to see the just-released music video for Veruca‘s second new song It’s Holy. As you can see in the video embedded above, this new music video features scenes where fans from all over the world are listening to these new Veruca Salt songs for the first time ever … and at the 1:20 min. mark you can see ME head-bopping along to the song. I was asked to appear in the video back in April and I GLADLY said YES! Thankfully, the shots of me screaming, crying, falling off my chair, crying, squealing and crying weren’t used … just a shot of me happily head-bopping along as I screamed with giddy delight on the inside. Sigh. The video is amazing. Huge shout-out and so much love to my friend Gary Kordan who directed the music video for It’s Holy. AHHH!!!!! Enjoy!!

Someone, PLEASE, stop this man
LOL. SO, last week we learned that Robin Thicke named his new album Paula after his estranged wife Paula Patton in a desperate attempt to woo her back after the couple split earlier this year in the wake of cheating allegations. As you may recall, we also learned last week that many of the songs on Robin‘s new album are songs that were written “in about a week” about his break-up with Paula. Today we get to see the just-released music video for his new single Get Her Back and, yes, it’s another sad attempt to try and get back in Paula‘s good graces. You may recall that Thicke debuted this song at the Billboard Music Awards last month. This video is hard to watch if only because of how embarrassing it really is. Do try to not cringe yourself to death with second-hand embarrassment. Oy!
Remember that legendary performance of Vogue that Madonna delivered at the 1990 MTV Video Music Awards? Chances are there are some of you younger folk who may not be too familiar with the performance but I can assure you, it was THE talk of the town when it took place 24 years ago this September. Today we get to check out a brilliant recreation of that performance done but a group of Estonian theater kids who had access to a Victorian mansion and an array of period clothing. Click the video above to watch this tribute performance of Vogue in full and marvel at how expertly these kids pay tribute to one of Madonna‘s greatest live performances of all time. Gods bless the children, there is hope for the future. Then, as a refresher, you can click below to watch Madonna‘s original 1990 Vogue performance in full. More »
"I just wanna fall again"
Last month we got our first listen of the newly reunited O-Town‘s new single Skydive. Today, we get our first LOOK at their just-released music video for the song. I know it’s not the weekend yet but it would be completely acceptable for any of y’all to turn down for this boy band power ballad. All the feels right here, all the feels in one music video.

So, OK, I know that Shannon already posted an EPIC #ThrowbackThursday post of all of her fave Tupac Shakur songs (#thuglife4lyfe) BUT, after that Amy Grant post earlier today where I came out publicly as an Amy Grant/Christian Pop fan … I feel compelled — MOVED BY THE SPIRIT, if you will — to share a little #ThrowbackThursday lurve of my own. I know sfmom will feel me on this one. Click below to hear the 12 best Amy Grant songs in existence … songs that range from full on Christian realness to full on secular pop music amazingness.

Earlier this week 2Pac fans the world over celebrated what would have been the artist’s 43rd birthday. I can’t even wrap my brain around that. I was 11 years old when he died in 1996 and was not a big rap fan yet. But within a couple of years I found myself hooked on hip hop, and throwing up Westside all over the place (I lived in Boston at the time, so that obviously made perfect sense). A recent release of a recorded conversation he had with a friend also further reminded me of his general awesomeness, and his vision for a better future for the black community. 2Pac dominated my life for a huge chunk of time (I talked about him so much, my Dad ended up editing a book about his legacy), and it’s high time we had a #ThrowbackThursday in his honor.

Starring a man convicted of sexual assault & directed by a man accused of sexual assault
Last winter, Lady Gaga had a hit on her hands with her single Do What U Want (Featuring R. Kelly) and as such, she decided to make a music video for the song. For various reasons, the video never got released in full … most likely because the finished video appears to glorify sexual assault, stars a man with a storied sexual assault history (R. Kelly) and was directed by a man notorious for sexual assault (Terry Richardson). I’m GUESSING here that someone probably informed Gaga that this mixture of sexual assault things might not make for a music video that would be well-received by the public. BUT, TMZ managed to get their hands on a clip of the video that shows us what we’ve been missing so … check it out above and see the terribly ill-advised video that Lady Gaga rightly decided to scrap altogether.
HIDE YOUR EYES, AZEALIA BANKS
Yesterday we learned that sometimes rapper Azealia Banks got into a dumb Twitter feud with T.I. after she insulted his wife after he released his song No Mediocre with Iggy Azalea. Today we get to see the music video for No Mediocre, the song that sparked T.I.‘s feud with Azealia. Honestly, the song doesn’t do much for me … and I’m not crazy about the video but … here it is anyways.
Yassssss, betches, Yaaaaaas
Last month we got our first listen of Michelle Williams‘s new song Say Yes which features her Destiny’s Child groupmates Beyoncé and Kelly Rowland on guest vocals. Earlier this month, we got our first look at the mini D. Child reunion that took place on the set of the song’s music video. Today we get to see the just-released Say Yes music video in full. While Michelle is clearly the star of this video, she graciously allows Bey and Kelly a fair amount of featured screen time. At one point, Beyoncé becomes Beysus Herself to bless all of the music video watchers:
Check out the video above to be blessed … then click below to watch a fun behind the scenes video that was shot on the music video set. More »
