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…

New Brandy And Monica Duet “It All Belongs To Me” Is No “The Boy Is Mine”

"The Boy Is Mine" is a hard act to follow, but the new duet by Brandy and Monica is the very definition of underwhelming. "It All Belongs To Me" is their first song together in 14 years (do you feel old now?), but in all that time the best they could come up with i…

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,…

Kelly Clarkson’s “Einstein,” Plus Other Fuzzy Math In Pop Music

All morning I've been listening to Kelly Clarkson's quite enjoyable new album, Stronger, and found myself laughing aloud at the lyrics to the song "Einstein. Ahem:  Simple math Our love divided by the square root of pride Multiply your lifeless time I'm going out of my mind It was heaven when I finally figured it out…

Behold, Adele’s “Someone Like You” Video

Adele's "Someone Like You" is the most gut-wrenching song ever. As in, I had to stop listening to it because it just brought me to a dark place. And now, following her bonkers performance of the song at the MTV VMAs, Adele has released the video for the song. It shows her walking along the…

Much Ado About Britney Spears’ New Video

"He is a sucker with a gun, gun, gun, gun," Britney Spears sings in her track, "Criminal." But apparently, the local government in Stoke Newington, a borough of London, didn't get the memo about the lyrics or name of the song before they gave Brit-Brit permission to film a music video there. Now that they've…

Lisa Vanderpump Was In An ABC Video

I have a very soft spot in heart for ABC, the ultimate '80s band in my mind. As a kid, I remember absolutely loving their video for the song "Poison Arrow." It shows frontman Martin Fry lusting after a beautiful big-haired brunette, dripping in diamonds and fur, who eventually shrinks him and traps him under…

A History Of Umlauts In Pop Music

Lady Gaga didn't think one video for "Yoü and I" was enough, so she has also created six "fashion films" about each of the vid's assorted characters. She's shown us the Nymph and the Bride and, today, she released the third video in the series about her mermaid alter ego, Yüyi. The film, called "Hau…

Kristen Stewart, Video Vixen

Marc Foster enlisted a pretty high wattage star to be in his music video for the song, "I Was Broken." Behold, Kristen Stewart doing what she does best—looking tortured and thoughtful. So how did Marc get K-Stew for this gig? He is a friend of Robert Pattinson's. He even had Rob sing on his track…

OK Go Makes Beautiful Music With The Muppets

OK Go makes awesome music videos. The only thing that could make one of their epics even better? Muppets! Luckily, the band contributed a song to The Green Album, the new collection of Muppet cover songs. My favorite moment? When the guys hop on their signature treadmills—and Bunsen and Beaker speed them up. Oh, and…

Lindsay Lohan, The Persecuted Graffiti Artist?

Lindsay Lohan's first staring role since her release from house arrest is in the music video for Miggs' new song, "Let the Games Begin." In the video, Lindsay plays a model/actress by day. But by night, she is a "world famous street artist known for his social commentary," even though authorities have vowed to arrest…

Lady Gaga’s Video For “Yoü and I” Is Intentionally As Confusing As Love

Yesterday, Lady Gaga's video for "Yoü and I" was supposed to premiere on MTV at exactly 7:49p.m. However, after it leaked earlier in the week, Gaga jumped the gun on unveiling the video, which features her as mermaid Yuyi and as dude Jo Calderone, as well as rocking her mother's actual wedding dress. To make…

Cee Lo Green’s “Cry Baby”: Steve Urkel Gets Dapper

Cee Lo Green is such a genius. I am absolutely obsessed with his new video for "Cry Baby," from the '50s styling to the amazing guest stars—Jaleel White, aka Steve Urkel, and a girl who looks suspiciously like Laura Winslow. Wow, Jaleel has some pretty hot dance moves and looks kind of sexy in a…

Kris Jenner’s Awesomely Bad Music Video

  If you thought Rebecca Black's "Friday" was awesomely terrible and that LuAnn De Lesseps' "Chic, C'est La Vie," was infuriatingly amazing you must, must, must see this music video that Kris Jenner—mama of Kim, Khloe, and Kourtney Kardashian—made for her 30th birthday. It's called "I Love My Friends," and it's a poorly sung love…

What’s Happening Here? “Pon Pon Pon” Edition

Since I don't speak a lick of Japanese, I'm forced to visually interpret what this weird video from Japanese artist Kyary Pamyu Pamyu is all about. My take: "I love cute stuff, so much cute stuff, also dripping eyeballs. Maybe I murder you? Eyeballs vomit from my mouth! It's my evil! A dancing adult baby…

Björk Is Back, And Ready To Attack

Raise your hand if you are excited for Björk's new album, Biophilia, which will drop in late September. Luckily, she has cut the suspense, releasing her first video from the album, "Crystalline," this morning. Not only is the song thorougly embedded in my head now, the video is also dope. Not that I should be…

Rebecca Black Takes Her Moment

Rebecca Black has attempted to make Monday the new Friday. Yesterday evening, she released the video for her new single, "My Moment." It's gloriously cheesy, showing Rebecca clapping strangely in front of a sound board, singing dreamily while getting her makeup done and attempting a dance sequence, a very risky move. I don't quite get…

Greyson Chance’s Threat: He’ll “Unfriend You”

Now, if you are under the age of 14, you are probably already familiar with this video. But I'm old (as in, I don't even have a Twitter account), and thus it only entered my consciousness this weekend when I (fittingly) saw it posted on a younger cousin's Facebook page. Greyson Chance has been dubbed…

Beyoncé’s Ode To “The Best Thing I Never Had”

Beyoncé has released the video for "Best Thing I Never Had," and normally, I am all about new Beyoncé videos. But I'm not so sure about this one. It starts with B standing around in bridal lingerie, awkwardly singing to an ex. As the video proceeds, we see Beyoncé and said ex at prom (where…
