So … This Is Avril Lavigne’s New Music Video

Avril Lavigne Hello Kitty Music Video
Oh no. No. No no no no.

Here is the recipe for Avril Lavigne’s music video for her new single, “Hello Kitty”:

  • 10 heaping scoops of Gwen Stefani’s Harajuku appropriation phase
  • 3 cups Skrillex hair
  • 2 cups assorted Skrillex noises (OK to sub generic brand “Scrillecks” here)
  • 1.5 cups “Wait, isn’t Avril Lavigne my age? Why is this making me feel so old? Why is this song so loud? Why is she still singing about slumber parties?”
  • 5 tablespoons PROBLEMATIC
  • 2 tablespoons of that time you had a Skittles-eating contest with your brother and vomited rainbow-colored bile.
  • A pinch of the most awkward sushi restaurant scene since you saw a white guy bow to the chef at a conveyer belt sushi restaurant in a suburban strip mall in Utah.
  • Crumble “SERIOUSLY THOUGH, WTF” over the top and bake until crisp.

Yeeeepppp, that just about sums it up. Avril, you know I always want to have your back, but not this time. I’m going to go take two aspirin and lie down for awhile.

"All by my gooooooaaaat!"

Yesterday was the best day of my life. Want to know why? Because I discovered this video mashup of Celine Dion singing “All By Myself” with a screaming goat. I’d seen the Taylor Swift goat music video that Julie posted last week, and loved it (obviously!), but goats and Celine Dion are literally my two favorite things. Seeing them together in one video made me laugh, and cry, and push play over and over for about an hour. And guess what? There are so many more goat music videos where this one came from! After the jump, check out nine more hilarious examples… Keep reading »

Bjork’s “Mutual Core” Is Weird And Gorgeous, As You Might Expect

Bjork Is Back!

Icelandic singer Bjork is just a weirdo and I love her for it. She just released the video for her new song “Mutual Core,” which depicts a beautiful but terrifying natural disaster erupting all around her (donning a crazy blue wig, natch). Coral-like pieces rise up and cave in and slow-moving lava-esque sludge trudges, as slow gently falls. MTV may not play music videos anymore, but if they were all as visually engaging as this one, maybe they would change their minds. [Flavorwire]

"Cherry Wine"
  • A new Amy Winehouse song! Well, sort of. Nas has released his rap “Cherry Wine” featuring vocals from Amy and it’ll tug at your heartstrings that this amazing voice is gone. [Vulture]
  • Speaking of voices, “Grease” co-stars Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta are reuniting for a Christmas album that already sounds like it is going to be schmaltzy. Amelia, who loves Christmas music, is super psyched. [Celebrity Cafe]
  • Did Karrueche Tran dump Chris Brown after an alleged hookup with Rihanna (in the bathroom of a NYC nightclub, no less)? [Uptown Magazine]

Watch Lana Del Rey Take On David Lynch In This TV Ad For H&M

She wore blue velvet...

There was a moment there when I thought Lana Del Rey would be but a blip on our collective cultural radar given that, um, everyone kind of seemed to hate her, but with big-name brands like Mulberry, Jaguar, and H&M backing the controversial songstress, it seems like Lana will have a role in the zeitgeist for the foreseeable future. The real question is no longer, “who is she and what is she doing here,” but rather, “should she really be playing in David Lynch territory?”

Del Rey channels the director’s trademark grim atmosphere in a new video ad spot for H&M borrowed straight from the Lynch repertoire, complete with a rendition of “Blue Velvet.” As one of those really awful fangirls who believes in the sanctity of all things Lynchian, I’m not exactly excited about the homage, but I guess if there’s any pop singer who can do this tricky thing justice, it’s probably going to be Lana Del Rey. She’s kind of creepy, and I’m totally into it. [Spin]

"Overjoyed"

The Frisky staff laughs at me like a bunch of hyenas whenever I bring up how much I love Matchbox Twenty, because sometimes The Frisky staff are a bunch of jerks like that. But I hardly care today because this week, the band released a new music video for the forthcoming album North and the song “Overjoyed,” is just the sweetest. I’ve been listening to it on repeat all morning. Take that, jerks! (J/K I love you guys.) [PopCrush]

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 to take this outside, bitch? Because I will fight you. I will fight you in an alley. (Winona understands.) I’m beyond pumped for their new album and was super-excited when Amelia IMed me their new music lyric video, “She’s So Mean.”

So I was beyond not pumped when I actually watched the “She’s So Mean” video and my overwhelming emotion was “Ew.” Keep reading »

Nicki Minaj’s “Stupid Hoe” Video Plumbs New Depths Of Ugh

Maybe I am just old, finally. That would be the most reassuring explanation for Nicki Minaj’s seizure-inducing music video for “Stupid Hoe,” a song about … uh … some stupid hoe?

It’s a catchy, poppy rap that’s mostly titillating for being denigrating to women. (Although I’ll admit, “I’m Angelina / you Jennifer / come on, bitch, you see where Brad at” is really clever.) But it’s really the video that’s worth paying attention to: Nicki Minaj’s crazy-colored hair and lipstick schtick is trotted out again and in this video, she takes a Britney-esque turn by writhing inside a cage wearing fishnets. Oh, and there’s a lot of butts.

Lots to look at, at least. It’s visually interesting, but kind of the same way the inside of a Forever 21 is visually interesting: sensory overload, then forgettable. What say you? [FlavorWire]
