Paolo Tuci FTW!
While we wait to see how terribly horrible the live-action Jem and the Holograms movie will turn out to be, let’s check out this amazing music video that I stumbled up by Italian musician Paolo Tuci and friends. Paolo and co. bring Jem and the Holograms to life in this original music video that reimagines the characters as men … and it is truly outrageous. I’m not entirely crazy about the song but I do love the concept. The make-up and fun with gender fluidity is brilliantly inventive. I have a feeling that this music video alone is more entertaining than the forthcoming Jem movie will be. Please enjoy.
This is hilarious. Cry-face emoji, cry-face emoji.
So every day I’ve been checking various celebrities’ social media accounts, really in an attempt to see who’s speaking out about the events in Baltimore, Maryland. It’s been disappointing to see that some of my favorites (AHEM) have not said a word, but I’m still hopeful that this will change. Anyway, Nicki Minaj has been incredibly busy working, and clubbing, and I’m not mad at her, I swear (not really). And I actually enjoyed this little video of her dancing to Sean Paul in a corner, happily alone. Brought back a lot of memories. Click inside for more!

My girl Hustle Roses, who has been slaying LA as of late with a string of really great performances at the hottest clubs in town, just dropped the music video for her new song Is Paul McCartney For Old People? which can be found on her new EP battleplanning. As you can see in the video above, that Hustle Roses directed herself, she is really killing the game with her new music. battleplanning. is her strongest work yet and I am loving the way she’s been promoting the music this time around. I’m not sure if I’m allowed to say anything yet so I’ll remain vague … I understand that Hustle Roses may be playing a show on the East Coast this summer so she is ready for world domination. For now, enjoy this video for Is Paul McCartney For Old People? and fall in love (again) with the wonderfully talented Hustle Roses.
Hilary Duff teased the forthcoming release of the music video for her new single Sparks on her official Instagram profile and as you can see below, she is COMING FOR YOUR FAVES with this new video. Sparks is absolutely my favorite pop song right now and I’ve been listening to it obsessively since Hil. D released it earlier this month. And just when I thought I couldn’t love the song any more, she goes ahead and gives us a music video tease that makes me love it even more. Hilary sounds hot, yes, we know this … but she looks megahot in the music video … which you have to check out below. More »
"Turn the lights down low / And kiss me in the dark"
After we got a tiny taste of the song back in March, Hilary Duff released the full audio for her infectious new single Sparks earlier this month. Today we get to see the just-released lyric video for Sparks and altho it’s not a particularly impressive lyric vid, I am so crazy about the song that I am happy to feature it again. Sparks has been one of my fave new songs since it was released a few weeks ago and it fits in nicely in my running playlist. I’m hoping that the music video for Sparks will be a bit more exciting than this lyric vid but even if not, I’ll still be desperately in lurve with the song nonetheless.
No TIDAL required
A few weeks ago, Rihanna released a stunning new single titled American Oxygen that was released first on Jay Z‘s new music streaming service TIDAL before it was made available for purchase elsewhere. Rihanna also released the music video for American Oxygen exclusively on TIDAL … until now. The video for Oxygen has finally been made available for viewing outside of TIDAL which is great news because, IMHO, the song is one of the best that Rihanna has released in her entire music career. American Oxygen follows the release of her previous single Bitch Better Have My Money and it couldn’t be more different. This stirring mid-temp ballad is not only beautiful to listen to it is also educational in lyrical content. Click the embed above to watch the video for American Oxygen and see what you non-TIDAL subscribers (meaning almost everyone on planet earth) have been missing.
Featuring Brian Aubert of Silversun Pickups
Last month we learned the GREAT news that Garbage is, once again, releasing a new single in celebration of Record Store Day (which is this Saturday) and today we get to HEAR the song for the first time and SEE the music video for the track. Directed by longtime Garbage music video collaborator Sophie Muller, The Chemicals is the first of two new songs included on the 10″ vinyl single that will be released on RSD this weekend. The song features guest vocals by Brian Aubert of Silversun Pickups but longtime Garbage fans will hear immediately that this is 100% a Garbage song. I am really looking forward to picking up this vinyl when it is released on Saturday. Please enjoy.
"Party til the break of dawn"
Last month, Snoop Dogg released the music video for his single Peaches N Cream, the first from his new Pharell-produced album Bush. Today we get to see the just-released music video for his second single So Many Pros. As you can see in the video embedded above, Snoop showcases the many sides of his personality in this new music video, with the emphasis on his flawless pimp game. The retro feel of the faux movie posters is a very nice touch. This second single is the epitome of that smooth ’70s sound, I can totally dig it. Check out the video for So Many Pros and let the Snoop wash all over you.
"Just shot one of my favorite dance scenes ever"
Our dear Britney Spears is hard at work on day 2 of her music video shoot for her upcoming new single Pretty Girls (which will feature Iggy Azalea on guest rap vocals). Today, Britney and a bunch of backup dancer spent some time a a car wash for the video shoot and as you can see in the photos below, she is rockin’ a different look today. Yesterday she was all weaved out with lots of big hair. Today, her extensions are out and her shorter, natural hair is permy and fun. Britney shared a photo on her official Facebook profile and other photos of Britney on the Pretty Girls set have popped up on Twitter. Behold. More »
Tiny is better than nothing at all ;)
Earlier today we saw a pair of behind the scenes photos shared by Britney Spears from the set of the music video for her new single with Iggy Azalea, Pretty Girls. Right now we get our FIRST LISTEN of the song by way of a fan shot video from the music video set. Britney and Iggy are filming Pretty Girls right now here in LA and an industrious fan with a mobile phone managed to film a tiny portion of the shoot … which includes a tiny sample of the song. It’s not much to listen to, unfortch, but it’s better than nothing. Watch the clip above AND DON’T BLINK. Then, click below to see a photo shot by a fan of Britney and Iggy tooling around in their Jeep on the streets of LA today. More »
