Mya, Sisqo, DMX... and the Spice Girls, obviously
PITNBr Erica Croce changed. My. Life. Yesterday she sent me a link to The Nostalgia Machine and I haven’t been the same since! So today’s #ThrowbackThursday is dedicated to her… and to anybody else who remembers when Sisqo and Mya collaborated on It’s All About Me and basically changed the world. But before we get started on this week’s collection, can I just say that I’m still in love with our list of Songs That Make You Ugly-Cry from last week? I didn’t get to reply to all of the comments, but I wanted to thank ALL of you for sharing your fave tracks, and for also opening up about your personal connections to some of them. Y’all are the best. Click inside for more!
Bae Bae's kids
Back in May, Pharrell performed his new song Come Get It Bae LIVE during an episode of The Voice as an introduction to the show as one of the two new judges/coaches coming next season (along with Gwen Stefani). Today we get to see the just-released music video for Bae that features guest star Miley Cyrus. The clip is a cute celebration of women … and then Miley is included as well. I dunno. Click the embed above, have a looksee for yourselves.
He's so 'Handy'
Yesterday I shared a pair of parody music videos by Weird Al Yankovic that turned Robin Thicke‘s Blurred Lines into Word Crimes and Pharrell‘s Happy into Tacky. Today, I’m sharing two other Weird Al videos that brilliantly parody Lorde‘s song Royals and turns it into Foil (as in, aluminum foil) and Iggy Azalea‘s Fancy into Handy. There is none greater in the parody song game than Weird Al so please take the time to watch these two videos and see why the man may FINALLY get his first #1 album when the Billboard chart comes out next week. Watch Weird Al‘s Lorde parody above and his Iggy parody below. More »
Boyz II Men, Green Day, Mariah Carey & More!
This morning I was a hot, crying mess over that baby Reddit thread, so I figured I’d stick with that theme for our #ThrowbackThursday musical selections. I always tell myself that I’m not a big cryer but OMG that is so not true when it comes to good music and good movies. All of my favorite movies make me cry. I think the greatest example of that is Million Dollar Baby, the first movie that actually had me silent-ugly-sobbing in the theatre… LMAO. Interestingly enough, music had a lot to do with that as well. I have this special edition DVD set of the movie that includes the soundtrack and it’s amazing how much music sets the tone for things. So yeah, get ready to get your ugly-cry on today (or, at least, a little teary-eyed). Click inside for more!
Grumpy Cat and Friends, actually
It’s taken some time but at long last, Grumpy Cat has released her first music video. Grumpy Cat, along with other so-called “celebrity cats” (including Nala Cat, Hamilton the Hipster Cat, Oskar the Blind Cat & Klaus) has teamed up with Friskies for the release of this music video for the song Cat Summer which features these cats laying around being cats. Yeah, not all that exciting. BUT, for every time this video is viewed, Friskies will donate a one meal to cats in need at shelters all around the country so … watch this video, repeatedly. I mean, the Internet was made for the existence of cat videos so it really shouldn’t be too hard to watch one more video, especially for such a good cause.

Stop what you’re doing RIGHT NOW and watch the just released music video for Paris Hilton‘s new single/song of the summer Come Alive by clicking the embed above. Having watched the video myself, I know that it may be difficult to get thru the whole thing without LOLing your ass off but … give it a chance. Come Alive is one of the best songs released this year (so far) and is a bona fide contender for song of the summer. Paris the pop star is back, y’all!! We are not worthy!!
So … I gotta know … what do YOU think of this music video?!
'You & I (Nobody In The World)'
John Legend has released the music video for his new single You & I (Nobody In The World) and as you can see above, it is truly one of the most beautifully executed and surprisingly powerful music videos in recent memory. The theme of the video is simple, women of all shapes, sizes, ethnicities, ages, etc. look into the camera as if they were looking into a mirror. What we see throughout this video is the beauty that exists in all people, personified by the women who appear in this video. Among the women who are featured are actresses Laverne Cox and Tatyana Ali, along with Legend’s beautiful wife Chrissy Teigen. But, for me, I’m most taken with the non-famous women from all walks of life that are featured in the video. Have a look above, I think you will like what you see.
Here comes 'Crazy'
Earlier this week, Robin Thicke released a lyric video for his new song Forever Love which features animated characters acting out his desperate attempt to woo back his estranged wife Paula Patton (which is the theme of all of the music featured on his new album Paula, in stores this week). Today he releases a second video, this time a music video for his song Still Madly Crazy. Again, this new video is the latest in his public attempt to harangue Paula in an effort to win her back … but this time, Thicke is using cute kids in his campaign. Check out the video above to see how Robin Thicke is trying to use children to help him publicly harass his estranged wife and cringe along with me, won’t you?
BONUS: Click below to watch video of an interview of Robin Thicke talking to Hot 97 about his new album … and his estranged wife Paula Patton. If you’re at all interested in Thicke‘s messy behavior as of late, the video is a must watch. More »
Benji and Joel Madden of Good Charlotte have teamed up for a new musical project and have released for our listening pleasure a new song titled We Are Done just in time for summer. The Madden Brothers have a new album titled Greetings From California on the way but before their collection of songs is released we get to check out the music video for their new single. We Are Done sounds like a bit of a departure from the music they made with Good Charlotte, which is great because their new sound is very LA. Watch the video above and see what you think of The Madden Brothers‘ new single We Are Done.
