A couple of weeks ago we learned that rapper Iggy Azalea was named the new house of MTV‘s House of Style and today we get to see a clip of footage from the season premiere episode. As you can see above, Iggy teamed up with designer Jeremy Scott to do a bit of vintage shopping in LA. Iggy talks about her fashion inspirations (Madonna, Cruella de Vil) and Jeremy talks a bit about vintage designers and history. The whole thing does feel like the House of Style episodes that aired on MTV way back in the 90′s so, yeah, I think you may like this clip. Have a look, see what you think. Do you like Iggy as the new host of House of Style?
"Oh My Gawd, Becky"
Earlier this month we got our first listen of Nicki Minaj‘s new single Anaconda and a few days later, we got to see a short tease of the Anaconda music video. Today we get another look at the Anaconda music video in an just-released behind the scenes video that has been made available. For the most part, this video is worth checking out. The video turns into a mess at the end but, admittedly, only because Nicki got drunk and a bit annoying. I’m digging the song and I’m anixious to see the video in full but this BTS vid is fun to watch while we wait.

Let's go back to 2000
Ricky Martin recently added his 2000 music video for Nobody Wants to Be Lonely, his duet with Christina Aguilera from his album Sound Loaded, to his official You Tube channel so I thought it would be the perfect video to share for #ThrowbackThursday! Way back in 2000, Xtina was a massive pop star and Ricky was still in the closet. These days, Xtina is ready to pop out baby #2 and Ricky is out and proud. Yay for progress. I remember really disliking how cheap and fake this video looked when it was released 14 years ago but now, I love the cheesy charm of it. Click the embed above to be reminded of what the world of pop music sounded like back in 2000. Do you miss videos like this on MTV?
"We're all in, brother"
Thus far we’ve seen fun promo videos for the forthcoming 7th and final season of Sons of Anarchy on FX. Today, AT LONG LAST, we finally get to see a trailer that features actual footage from the show. Sons teamed up with IMDB for the exclusive trailer above that shows actual scenes from the new season of Sons of Anarchy. The show returns on September 9th with a 90-minute episode and as you can see above, the action is going to come at us hard and very heavy. OMG. I cannot WAIT. AHHH!!!

Prepare to start handing out awards, Hollywood
The first video trailer for the upcoming biopic film about the life of genius scientist Stephen Hawking has been released and it has left me stunned after just one viewing. Actor Eddie Redmayne stars in this new film, The Theory of Everything, as Hawking and I kid you not … had me crying actual tears before the 2 1/2 minute trailer was even finished. It would be silly to predict awards glory from just one viewing of one movie trailer but that was the first thing that occurred to me as the clip finished — this movie will win all the awards. While that remains to be seen, click the embed above to get your first look at Redmayne as Hawking in The Theory of Everything. You may cry, you will likely be impressed and you will definitely want to watch this trailer again.
"This is where the magic happens"
Since everyone, including me, is crazy in love with actor Chris Pratt these days, I just have to share this fun new video with all y’all. Pratt is featured in a new Guardians of the Galaxy featurette video that takes us on a tour of the Milano spaceship that his character Peter Quill/Star Lord flies in Guardians of the Galaxy. As you can see in the video above, the tour is meant to look like an episode of MTV Cribs (remember that show?). It should also be noted that the Milano spaceship is named thusly in honor of Peter Quill‘s childhood crush Alyssa Milano. Check out the cute video above and try not to fall MORE in love with Chris Pratt.
Plus, he TOTALLY disses Orlando Bloom
Chris Pratt sat down for a radio interview this week to promote his blockbuster hit movie Guardians of the Galaxy and was asked about his favorite music. Chris revealed that he loved Dr. Dre‘s Chronic 2 (aka 2001, aka Chronic 2001) album so much that he knows every lyric to every song on the album … and the proceeded to bust out a killer performance of Forgot About Dre (Featuring Eminem). You have to watch the video above to see for yourself, it’s pretty epic. Make sure you watch the clip to the very end because Chris sneaks in a funny little diss toward Orlando Bloom which is kinda hilarious (even tho I’m Team Bloom). This video will make your day, I promise.
Je suis Groot
Chances are that you were among the folks who made their way out to movie theaters this weekend to see the #1 movie at the box office, Guardians of the Galaxy. Elsewhere in the world, Guardians also opened in theaters this week in various languages which meant that the voices in those films had to be recorded by native voice actors … except for Vin Diesel who recorded his lines in 5 different languages. As those of you who have seen the movie know, Vin only has one line of dialogue in the movie — I am Groot. Click the embed above to watch video of Diesel recording the line I am Groot in 5 different languages. Haha :)
