Last month we saw photos of Tori Amos and her daughter Natashya Lórien filming a music video for their duet Promise, which is included on Tori’s new album Unrepentant Geraldines. Today we get to see the video in full. As you can see above, the video is very simple in that it features Tori and Tash singing to one another — no special effects, no storyline, no setting changes. Tori, Tash, singing. It’s a surprisingly beautiful video to watch. Click above, have a look.
Lana Del Rey has released another of her trademark music videos, this time for the title track of her new album Ultraviolence. Despite the fact that LDR tends to say ridiculous things in interviews (likely, for attention), she does manage to consistently put out music videos that keep her 100% on brand. In this new video, Lana plays a bride bathed in grainy black & white who looks forlorn and heartsick. Click the embed above and have a look. I love this song, I don’t mind the video. More of this and less interviews, LDR. For both our sakes, please.
Sadly, they're both fully clothed :/
Last week we saw video of Bear Grylls teaching Zac Efron how to rappel down a mountain while shirtless (woot!) before their episode of Running Wild with Bear Grylls aired on TV over the weekend. Today we get to see an exclusive digital only clip from the show that didn’t air on TV but is totally worth seeing — even if the guys are both fully dressed (boo!). Click the embed above to watch Zac try and teach Bear some sweet dance moves. If you like what you see and you want to see more, you can click below and watch their episode of Running Wild in full.

Her debut solo album 'Crush Songs' is on the way
Karen O, the frontwoman for the band Yeah Yeah Yeahs, announced last month that she would be releasing her first solo album later this year. Today we get our first look and listen of her debut solo single Rapt. Rapt is the first song released from her new album Crush Songs, which will be released on September 9. As you can see above, the video is a nice compliment to the sparse acoustic track. I love Karen O. I’ve been waiting for her to release a solo album for years now, so this is very welcome news for me. Check out the video and prepare yourselves for what will undoubtedly be an amazing album to come.

We got to hear Hilary Duff‘s NEW single Chasing the Sun yesterday and today, we get to see the just-released music video. In the clip embedded above, we see Hilary acting out a scenario where she is an overworked woman suffering in a bland office environment dreaming of the lazy summer days at the beach. It’s not the most unique of music video treatments but it is a cute video overall. I’m digging the song, the video is adorable … Hilary Duff is BACK, y’all.
This is amazing
George RR Martin gave an interview on the red carpet at San Diego Comic-Con this weekend and talked openly and charmingly about a range of subjects including Comic-Con itself, Game of Thrones (of course) and his preference for boobies over weenies. This interview is classic Martin which means it’s a must watch. Honestly, he doesn’t really offer anything in terms of breaking news but it is easy to see how this charming old fella is just shy of actually being a dirty old man ;) Enjoy.
Introudcing Ra’s al Ghul
The cast of Arrow made an appearance at San Diego Comic-Con this weekend to promote the upcoming third season of the show and they brought along with them a 3+ minute preview video for season 3. The video showcases the burgeoning romance between Oliver and Felicity and at the very end, introduces the new big bad in town — Ra’s al Ghul. Arrow season 3 looks great, click above and see for yourselves.

The MUST WATCH video of the day
Charlie Hunnam, the star of the FX series Sons of Anarchy, was unable to attend San Diego Comic-Con this week to promote the show and as a consolation prize, he sent a video message that was played in his stead. I don’t want to give too much away because the video works really well if you just watch it without explanation. I will let you know that the video is funny and sexy and DEFFO worth your time. Click the embed above and enjoy (I know you will).
Because everything that is old must be repackaged, revamped and rebooted into something new … we get to see, today, the first trailer for the upcoming reboot of Max Max. Titled Fury Road, this new version of the movie (which originally starred Mel Gibson and Tina Turner) stars Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron. I only saw the 1980 Mad Max movie once, many years ago so I’m not too familiar with the overall story. This new version looks gritty and more serious. I love Tom Hardy so I’m intrigued, are you? Click the embed above to check out the trailer and see what you think.
