If you don’t know who Kina Grannis is, you’ve been missing out. Kina just released her sophomore studio album, Elements, which earned her the #2 spot on iTunes Singer Songwriter Chart (and happens to be a favorite here at The Frisky).

Guy Pastes Himself Into Britney Spears’ “Work B**ch” Video, Awesomeness Ensues

Ladies and gentlemen, meet your new role model, Gal Volinez. Gal decided that Britney Spears’ iconic “Work B**ch” music video could use a little less Britney and a little more … him. So he recreated all of Britney’s trademark writhing and neck-snapping dance moves, showed a little midriff, and pasted his performance right over the…

Jenny Lewis Ends 6-Year Solo Hiatus With New Single And Album

It’s been six long years since we’ve heard any solo tunes from Jenny Lewis, and every day without her mellifluous voice has been harder than the one before it. However, at long last, it looks like the musical drought is over! This week, the ex-Rilo Kiley frontwoman released the lyric video for “Just One Of…

Arcade Fire’s New Video For “We Exist” Tackles A Young Person’s Struggle With Gender Identity

Last month at Coachella, Andrew Garfield walked out on stage in a white lace dress and a blonde wig to strike a few victorious poses during Arcade Fire’s song, “We Exist.” As the teaser we posted last week indicated, the live footage was shot for the finale of the “We Exist” video, which stars Garfield…

These Kids Have An Important Message About Drinking And Falling In Love

In light of songs like “Donkey” (shudder) taking over the mainstream country airwaves, I feel the need to even things out a bit by presenting some evidence that good country music is still being made, even if radio stations insist on plugging their ears and yelling “LALALALA” when confronted with any artist that’s not Florida…

Aww, Eminem’s New Music Video Is An Apology To His Mom

How did Eminem spend Mother’s Day? By releasing a music video for yet another song all about his relationship with his mother, Debbie Mathers. But unlike songs past, which focused on a mutual addiction to Valium (“My Mom”) or being a “victim of Munchhausen’s Syndrome” (“Cleaning Out My Closet”), “Headlights” is actually an apology. Directed…

Oh, But The Sweet, Perfect, Simple Wisdom Of A Dog!

Nat Johnson’s new song, “Dog,” is a sweet ode to how lovely it is to have a dog, inspired by all the happy dogwalkers she saw in the park near her home. The just-released music video is a beautiful animation that perfectly illustrates the song’s central theme: dogs can teach us so much. My favorite…

Lana Del Rey Is A Two-Timing Vixen In New Video For “West Coast”

Seems like Lana Del Rey has traded her signature hair-sprayed bouffant for a headful of relaxed beach waves in the video for “West Coast,” the first single off Ultraviolence, her much-anticipated sophomore album.

The primarily black-and-white clip features Lana frolicking on the beach with a couple of gutter punks intercut with footage of…

Watch: Usher Releases New Video For “Good Kisser” (Psst! It’s About Blow Jobs)

I’ve been a big Usher fan since forever, so I live most of my days waiting for him to release another sex-fueled slow jam that I can add to my bedroom repertoire. The day is finally here, my friends! The guy who brought us “Nice and Slow,” “You Make Me Wanna,” and “You Got It Bad,”…

All Hail The Alt-Rock Queen: Garbage Singer Shirley Manson Is Still A Girl-Power Goddess

For those of you who celebrated Record Store Day last month, I hope you picked up a copy of Garbage’s limited-edition 10-inch green vinyl, which featured the anti-mean girls anthem “Girls Talk.” Inspiration for the song first came in 2007 when the band was putting together their greatest hits collection, Absolute Garbage, but didn’t fully…

Move Over Yeezus And Make Room For Lily Allen’s “Sheezus”

Having just released the video for her latest song, “Sheezus” — which just happens to be the title track off her third album, out May 5 — Lily Allen’s eyeing the diva crown and no one, not Rihanna, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga or Lorde, better get in this bitch’s way. (Her words, not ours.)…

Sky Ferreira Goes To Compton, Dances Her Ass Off In Shoppable Video For “I Blame Myself”

Sky Ferreira’s new video for her song “I Blame Myself” is a fun one to watch, but it’s even more fun to shop. Shot in Compton, this ode to “early ’90s gangster rap videos” features the pop singer as the neighborhood’s queen bee, driving around with her crew in a hydraulic car. But she’s still got plenty of…

Beyonce’s Alternative Video For “Grown Woman” Is For Those Of Us Who Grew Up With “Saved By The Bell,” Caboodles & Trapper Keepers

As I’m sure you know, Beyonce‘s most recent self-titled album came along with a music video for each song on the record, plus a few extra videos, including one for the song “Grown Woman.” Now an alternative video has been released for that song, and visually, it is seemingly inspired by so many of the things that…

Lily Allen’s “Our Time” Music Video Reenacts The Time Lindsay, Britney & Paris All Hung Out

Once upon a time, there lived three wild, crazy, barely-to-moderately talented entertainers who ran in the same circle but did not often hang out together, either because of jealousy, competition and, some say, bits of unrequited affection. Then one day, all three of these starlets were photographed in a car together and the universe practically…

Miley Cyrus Writhes Around, Touches Herself Sensuously In Video For “Adore You”

“Adore You” is perhaps the best example on Miley Cyrus’s latest album, Bangerz, that the girl can sang. Vocally, the song is just great. However, the video, which debuted today, is just hilarious. Watch as Miley, sans fards, writhes around in a nude bra and panties beneath billowing white sheets, holding a video camera as she rubs her body and…

Bob Dylan Finally Releases A Video For “Like A Rolling Stone”

It’s about time Bob Dylan released a music video for “Like a Rolling Stone,” which only came out, oh, nigh 50 years ago. Is it possible that he could have been working on this very thing for the past 48 years? Possible, sure, but not likely. The interactive video, which I imagine is the first…

Kanye West’s New Video For “Bound 2″ Features Horses, Topless Kim Kardashian

I’m going to be honest, I didn’t even watch this video with the sound on. Why bother? I already know the song, and frankly, sometimes I’m just not in any mood to listen to Kanye West‘s voice. So what we have here is the music video for “Bound 2,” the last track on Yeezus, which…

Lily Allen Responds To Allegations Of Racism Against Black Women In Her “Hard Out Here” Video

This week, Lily Allen debuted the video for her new song “Hard Out Here,” to extremely mixed reactions. Some, like our own Rachel, saw her song about pop music’s policing of women’s bodies and double standards about sexuality as a “feminist anthem.”  Others are deeply offended by her use of mostly women of color backu…

Lily Allen Is Back And Better Than Ever, And We Couldn’t Be More Excited

Fiiiiinally! After a three-year hiatus, Lily Allen is back with a long overdue new single and music video … and it’s a FEMINIST ANTHEM, no less. “Hard Out Here” is awesome and fun and catchy in true Lily fashion, but the song itself serves to stand as commentary against celebrity culture and beyond, with none-too-subtle…
