Back in June we got to check out the brilliant Ok Go music video for their song The Writing’s On The Wall and today we learn that they are back with another brilliantly brilliant music video for their new single I Won’t Let You Down. As you may know, Ok Go have made a reputation out of making really impressively inventive music videos and this newest video is proof that they’ve still got it. If you enjoy perfectly synchronized choreography timed perfectly with the opening and closing of umbrellas, filmed in one long shot, then this is the music video for you. The song’s not so bad either ;)
Last week we learned the joyous news that November 5, 2014 will be Britney Day in the city of Las Vegas, NV in honor of our very own dear Britney Spears and today we get to see a personal video from Brit herself inviting us to join her in celebrating her day with her. In all actuality, Britney‘s invite seems more geared toward people named Britney but an invite is an invite so click below to see it. More »
Only EVERYBODY is loving Taylor Swift right now. Her new album 1989 was officially released at midnight last night (after it leaked online in full over the weekend) so pretty much everyone on earth is geeking out on new Taylor Swift songs right now. Over the weekend, Kelly Clarkson performed a show where she busted out a gospel song-inspired arrangement of Shake It Off that truly takes the infectious pop song to C-H-U-R-C-H. This is an impresive cover … and it just may save your soul. Enjoy.
"Head up, head up Keep holding, holding"
Chvrches released their debut album The Bones of What You Believe last year but it is proving to be the album that keeps on giving. The group has just released the official music video for Under The Tide, the latest single from their album, which you can watch in full above. This clip may remind some of you fans of ’90s alternative rock of Matthew Sweet‘s music video for Girlfriend which also incorporated anime scenes in his video … an effect that I greatly approve of. Honestly, my favorite Chvrches songs are the ones with Lauren on lead vocals but Under The Tide is a great song, now with a great video.
Last month we learned that rapper/singer Nicki Minaj will host and perform at the 2014 MTV Europe Music Awards in Glasgow, Scotland next month and to promote the show, MTV has released a brilliantly funny promo video that shows us what the world will be like after Nicki hosts. Honestly, I did not expect to like this promo video as much as I do, I think you’ll like it, too :D
They also covered 'Lust For Life' by Iggy Pop
Johnny Marr played a solo show at the O2 Brixton Academy in London, England last night and he brought out a special guest for a couple of special performances. The embed above features Johnny performing with Noel Gallagher of Oasis on the legendary Smiths song How Soon Is Now? Click below to watch Johnny and Noel perform a cover of Iggy Pop‘s classic hit Lust For Life. More »
And it's really not all that good
For weeks now, One Direction has been teasing the release of their music video for their new single Steal My Girl and at long last … it has been released. Honestly, I’m not crazy about the song and I really don’t like the video. The best thing about this video is Danny DeVito being Danny DeVito. The worst thing about the video is, well, everything else. Have a look, see what you think.
Earlier this week we got our first look at Johnny Depp in character as the Big, Bad Wolf as he will appear in the forthcoming Disney film Into The Woods and today we get to see actual footage from the film that features actual music! A new promo featurette titled The Story has been released that features stars of the film talking about the movie … yada yada yada … and at the 2:30 mark, we hear Meryl Streep sing. This is our first really good look at the film, much more impressive (I think) than the teaser trailer we saw last summer. Enjoy.
Taylor Swift kicked the promo for her new album 1989 into high gear last night with a major live performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Taylor shut down Hollywood Blvd. and turned the Hollywood Walk of Fame into her own personal concert venue with her first live performance of her song Out of the Woods. As you can see in the video embedded above, Taylor stepped out onto the stage and performed in front of the world without a guitar strapped to her body … like the pop star she has truly become. Check out her performance and see what you think. Taylor Swift the pop star is coming for you, whether you like it or not.

Mariah Carey doesn’t have time to listen to the haters who think she can’t sing or hit her trademark high notes any longer cuz she’s too busy living her life. Mimi uploaded a video online that was filmed while she was tidying up her hotel room and as you can hear, she was singing all the while. Haters gonna hate but Mimi is still gonna sing, sing sing.
