Throwback Thursday Says WTF To Kimye
The other night when my partner in crime/babymaking/the biggest Kanye West fan ever came home I tentatively said, ‘Sooo… are we gonna talk about the Kanye video? Or should we just never, ever talk about it?‘ Well, we talked about it, but I wish we hadn’t. I wish I could stop talking about it and stop thinking about it, and I wish it had never happened. You guys. WTEverlovingF was that?!?!?! I. CAN’T! I have tried to champion Kanye and I’ve even tried to be supportive of his relationship because, as far as I can tell, he’s a man in love and that’s great, right? Right? Wrong. I think that I can no longer be cool with Kimye, because Kimye has blinded Kanye to such a scary point… and it just hurts. But whatever! It’s totally not my business and if they’re happy then great. I just humbly ask that they never ever evereverevereverevereverever create art again together. Ever. And just to prove a point, I’m sharing a few Throwback videos where the artist used his/her boyfriend/girlfriend and it totally worked! Kanye could have put her in the video and made a dope video! Which is why I’m so mad! I just don’t know what happened! LMAOooo… Oh, gawd. Click inside for more!
Daddy Bieber Makes the Little Guy CRY!
Justin Bieber took some time in between takes on the set of his music video for All That Matters to help his little brother Jaxon celebrate his 4th birthday. The video starts out really cute with Justin carrying his little brother toward his birthday cake while everyone sings Happy Birthday To You to the happy little dude. After he blows out his candles, tho, all of the Biebers (including dad Jeremy and sister Jazmyn) gather together for a photo and then … ugh … Jeremey Bieber turns into an asshole and makes Jaxon cry in front of the cameras ON HIS BIRTHDAY! EVEN WORSE, daddy Jeremy is the one who decided to share this video with the world! Check out the video above to see for yourselves. The video stars out really cute and then the douchebag dad goes and ruins all the fun. Happy Birthday, Jaxon. Sorry your dad is a dick.
The Florida State University AcaBelles Just Killed It
Okay. I now know exactly what song I want to hear on the Pitch Perfect 2 trailer… whenever it drops, like, 3 years from now. The Florida State University AcaBelles’s released this video a while back and my life just got changed in all of the right ways. They covered Lorde’s hit Royals, and they just… slayed. I love my life, but I really feel like I effed up by not learning how to sing and/or make percussion sounds with my mouth. Peep the video for more!

Katy Perry has released a new music video for her soaring ballad Unconditionally, the latest song from her new album Prism. As you can see in the embed above, Katy has upped her music video game to an impressive new level. The video has a Renaissance theme but, for me, it’s the special effects that really make it work. I understand the song is rumored to have been inspired by her relationship with John Mayer but I won’t hold that against her (I guess). Check out the video and see what you think. Katy does a damn great job of putting out beautiful music videos, this one is no exception.
Xtina is Flawless again
Already this year, Christina Aguilera has found massive success by collaborating with Pitbull and Spanish singer Alejandro Fernández so … I guess she decided to team up with A Great Big World for her most recent collab. The band released the music video for their new single Say Something and as you can see above, Xtina looks and sounds flawless in this very powerful video. To be honest, this isn’t a band that I would probably notice were it not for their association with Xtina but you must admit that they do make beautiful music together. I hope Xtina is ready to begin work on her next solo album (especially considering the success she is enjoying with her song We Remain from the original motion picture soundtrack to The Hunger Games: Catching Fire) but, if she wants to keep collaborating, I can’t be mad at her. With the success she’s enjoyed this year, I can see why she’d want to keep her success streak going.
"Do you guys think that Kermit's been acting a bit weird lately?"
Back in August we got to see the very cute teaser trailer for next spring’s sequel film Muppets Most Wanted. Today we get to check out the just-released first official trailer for the film … which you will see in front of theatrical movies starting this weekend. As you can see in the video embedded above, this first trailer gives us a really good understanding of what to expect from Muppets Most Wanted when it hits theaters next Spring. The trailer is over 2 minutes long so we get to see a lot … and, personally, I’m loving it all. This looks really cute (and already better than the last Muppets movie we got). I’m in, are you?

Josh Hutcherson, who stars in the upcoming sequel film The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (which opens in theaters this Friday), will host this weekend’s episode of Saturday Night Live and today we get to check out the just-released promo videos for his appearance. Now, I gotta admit … Lady Gaga kinda killed it as host last weekend (tho, her role as musical guest left a LOT to be desired) so Josh is going to have to bring it hardcore this weekend. As I’m sure you can guess, there are a couple of Hunger Games-related jokes featured in the promos above but they’re actually kinda funny. In fact, Josh is kinda funny thruout the video so I think he’ll do a great job on the show. Check out the video above and see if you think he’ll bring the LULz this weekend when he guest hosts Saturday Night Live this Saturday night with musical guest HIAM.
And proves that TODAY is a day of the WORST VIDEOS EVER
So, yeah … it’s been confirmed … today is the day that we get to see the worst music videos ever made in the history of existence. Earlier we saw Kanye West‘s really laughably horrendous music video for Bound 2, then we got to see the less terrible but not great Backstreet Boys music video for their new single Show ‘Em (What You’re Made Of). Right now, lord have mercy, we get to see a music video starring former child star Blake McIver (Full House, The Little Rascals) for his new single Wish I Didn’t Need You. For those that don’t know, McIver is an all growed up go-go dancer who fancies himself a singer, too. This video … I mean … I just can’t. You have to watch and LISTEN for yourselves. The video is just bad … like, really really bad. Then, at around the 2:50 mark, Blake starts attempting to hit high notes and, well, that Kanye video ain’t look so bad in comparison anymore. On the plus side, Blake wrote this song himself … but the lyrics are so bad, you can’t really give him credit for his creativity. I’m thinkin’ Blake should stick to go-go dancing cuz I don’t think this singing thing is going to work out for the lad, unfortunately.
