Listen To Amy Winehouse In Nas’ Song “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…

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

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…

How Do We Feel About Pink’s New Song “Slut Like Me”?

A Frisky reader sent me the lyric video for Pink’s new song “Slut Like Me” and asked what I think. To be honest, musically, I think it sucks. But I have a feeling he was asking what I really think about Pink owning the word “slut” and using it to describe herself — which I’m

The Snuggie Kid Returns For The VMAs

Nevermind that I’ve never heard any of the songs in this clip because I’m approximately 100 years old, all you need to know is the Snuggie Kid is back, and he is better than ever. The be-Snuggied preteen — who stole our hearts with his pitch perfect rendition of Beyonce’s “Countdown” video — returns to…

Matchbox Twenty Debuts “Overjoyed” Video

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…

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 /…

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 whe…

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 tra…

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,…

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 o…

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.

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…

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.

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…

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…
