Leighton Meester Kisses A Girl And She Likes It

In Nomads’ new music video for “Addicted to Love,” a mysterious woman “accidentally” spills Leighton Meester’s drink all over her … and they rush to the bathroom to “clean it up.” I think it’s rude that Leighton is leading poor Wilmer Valderrama on, if you ask me! [After Ellen]…

Sir Ivan Takes Us To “La La Land” And Obliterates Our Minds

Sir Ivan is what might happen if David Guest and “Juicy” Joe Giudice had an adult baby. He made this horrific song and spent approximately 99 percent of the music budget on body paint. So it’s basically can’t-look-away terrible. Color us thoroughly mindfucked. [Sir Ivan]…

Ellie Goulding Debuts Amazing Lyric Video Project For Song “Anything Can Happen”

This is so cool: Ellie Goulding solicited photos from fans to create a lyric video project for her new song, “Anything Can Happen,” off her forthcoming album, Halcyon. Fans submitted over 1,200 pics and a great deal of them made it into the final video (above). The song is devine and I love the Instagram-y…

“Hollywood Douchebag” Is Everything That’s Wrong (And So Right) With L.A.

“Hollywood Douchebag” is a song by porn star Bree Olsen and some dude named Mike Gonsolin. It’s really terrible in a can’t-look-away-the-douchebag-train-is-running-off-the-tracks kind of way. Also, it epitomizes the very essence of what I hate about L.A. — not very smart people doing their very best impression of what they think it is to be…

Asian Teen Boy Recreates Beyonce’s “Countdown” Video In A Snuggie, Wins The Internet

Okay, everyone go home now. Ton has won the internet and our work here is done. Ton is a big fan of Beyonce and to prove it, he made this absolutely incredible video, recreating Bey’s “Countdown” video — only he’s wearing a Snuggie and the setting is, like, his parents’ rec room. Ton, if Beyonce…

Mischa Barton Inexplicably Runs Around In Leopard Print Bra & Panties In Noel Gallagher’s New Music Video

I never understood what was the big deal about Mischa Barton, other than a pretty face and a nice body and some decent-enough acting skills. She stars in the “Everybody’s On The Run” music video for Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds and, well, she’s inexplicably running around in leopard print bra and panties. Edgy, I…

Shia LaBeouf’s Penis Steals The Show In Sigur Ros Music Video

Shia LaBeouf and Shia LaBeouf’s penis are the stars of Sigur Ros’ music video for “Fjogur Piano,” or, as they put it, a mystery film experiment. I call it eight-and-a-half-minutes of WTF Is Going On. [Huffington Post]
Vile person Glenn Beck is planning what he calls an anti-“Glee” show, whatever that may mean.

Crazy Girl Only Gets Butt & Lips In Matchbox 20’s “She’s So Mean”

I am a lifelong, unabashed, unapologetic Matchbox 20 superfan. I own all their albums. They were the first band I ever saw in concert. I’ve even paid money just to hear the lead singer Rob Thomas to speak on a panel about music. I will defend his talented songwriting skills to the death. You want…

Fiona Apple Is Back And Wearing An Octopus On Her Head

You’ll have to excuse me if I don’t know what to say about this Fiona Apple video for “Every Single Night,” the first song off her new album, The Idler Wheel Is Wiser Than the Driver of the Screw and Whipping Cords Will Serve You More Than Ropes Will Ever Do. Fiona is wearing a…

The New Hot Chip Video: A Supermodel In A Super Weird Egg

This is the new video for “Night & Day” by the band Hot Chip. It features my favorite feral-looking supermodel, Lara Stone, along with Terence Stamp and the ubiquitous Reggie Watts. Seriously, that dude is everywhere. Also, there are some dancing monks. Do you die for Lara Stone’s teeth? Because I do.

Coolest Parents Ever Recreate Beastie Boys “Sabotage” Video

As much as it pains my Brooklyn heart to say this, this little video from a couple of cool Portland parents might just score extra points in the Portland vs. Brooklyn battle. These guys made a shot-for-shot remake of the Beastie Boys’ iconic Spike Jonze-directed video “Sabotage,” starring their own children. Brooklyn, I believe you’ve…

Justin Bieber Debuts “Boyfriend” Music Video

Confession: I am seriously, seriously obsessed with Justin Bieber’s song “Boyfriend.” It is Justin Timberlake-lite, but considering JT is so serious about “acting” now, JB will have to do. And now there’s a music video! Truthfully, I was feeling a little uncomfortable watching him trying to be sexy, because he is so young and really…

Double Take Takes Their Hot Problems to “Good Morning America”

Double Take, the dynamic duo who recorded “Hot Problems,” the song that threatens to overtake Rebecca Black’s “Friday” for the title of worst song ever, appeared on “Good Morning America” today to discuss their sudden fame and terrible singing. It seems the pair knew they really couldn’t sing, which is why they chose to simply…

“I Almost Lost My Heart In Monaco” Will Make You Almost Lose Your Mind

Another day, another bizarre rich girl vanity project, this time from Katie Chonacas, aka Kyriaki Sunday, who apparently took a trip to Monaco and “almost lost her heart” there. That’s why she penned this bubbly, name-dropping, weird spoken word track about her clubbing vacay to the Euro hot spot, and the man-child she almost fell…

A Couple Of Teenage Samantha Bricks

It’s really hard being pretty. That’s the sentiment held by the Rebecca Blacks of 2012, Double Take, who have made a simply horrific track called “Hot Problems.” Because “hot girls we have problems too, we’re just like you except we’re hot.” Clearly, two of their problems are 1) they can’t sing and 2) they will…

David Lynch Is Back With A New Music Video (NSFW)

I find that if you like one of David Lynch’s films, you really like all of them. His repertoire is interesting in that way — I don’t think there’s anyone who likes, say, “Mulholland Drive” but not “Blue Velvet,” or vice versa. I’m a member of the happily bizarre demographic that enjoys and embraces all…

Madonna Revisits High School In Her “Give Me All Your Luvin'” Music Video

Madonna has returned! The Material Girl has laid low for a few years, but the new video for her song “Give Me All Your Luvin'” proves that 30+ years after rising to fame, she still somehow looks, sounds, and even moves like no time has passed. That’s the extent to which I will allow myself…

Look, It’s Tavi In The New Wilco Music Video

Owing to a random train of events, Spencer Tweedy, the son of Wilco’s lead singer, made a music video with Rookie’s Tavi Gevinson for the title track of his dad’s new album, The Whole Love. The video, which also stars Spencer’s younger brother Sammy, shows the kids sliding around on wood floors in their socks, playing o…

Rihanna’s “You Da One” Video Is Meh

Rihanna channels everybody from Alex in “A Clockwork Orange” to a cane-toting pimp in her new video, “You Da One,” which is all done in black and white.  The song is epically meh — her vocal inflections remind of stuff Gwen Stefani was doing 10 years ago. But at least the outfits are cool. What…

All The Looks From Lady Gaga’s “Marry The Night” Video

This week, Lady Gaga debuted the new video for her latest single “Marry the Night.” There’s a lot going on, and unsurprisingly, not all of it makes total sense — even taking into consideration that its story is clearly jumbled chronologically. Gaga plays a bedazzling, hair-dying, cereal-smearing, train wreck of a ballet dancer gone rogue,…
