Watch: Disclosure & Lorde Release A Music Video For Their Song ‘Magnets’

"Let's embrace the point of no return"

Last week we got to hear the new Disclosure song Magnets, which features vocals by Lorde, taken from their new album Caracal (which was released last Friday). Today we get to see the just-released official music video for Magnets which, as you can see above, features some very shady biz. The video is beautifully shot in what looks to be a fabulous home in the Hollywood Hills and it appears to follow the lyrics of the song pretty closely. The more I hear this song, the more I love it.

My Other Half

Since this is the second to last edition of The TV Guide that I will be writing for Pink is the new Blog, I want to spend my time today writing about one of the greatest gifts I’ve ever received in my life … and her name is Shannon Houston. Back when I partnered with the company that is taking over complete control of PITNB on October 1, my grand plan was always to work toward making the site bigger and better.

When I finally found Shannon, I knew she was the one. What I didn’t know was that, not only had I found the my perfect compliment here on the blog but, I found a new family member — a new friend — a new piece of my heart. More »
