Benji And Joel Madden Do “Family Double Dare”

 

I am not the world’s biggest Good Charlotte fan. But, man, am I loving this video for their song “Last Night” because “Double Dare” was so awesome! I especially appreciate that Marc Summers pushed past his extreme OCD to once again gaze upon the giant nose with all the boogers you have…

Willow Smith Is A 21st Century Girl

Willow Smith isn’t waiting for the sun to come out tomorrow. She has dropped her new video for “21st Century Girl,” which takes her to the desert, where she turns sand into a butterfly and runs with wolves. Well, until she pulls some buildings into place and peels away the desert to reveal a…

Little Girls Debut Music Video Criticizing Lil Wayne’s Sexist Lyrics

Kick ass! A nine-year-old and a 10-year-old who call themselves Watoto From The Nile wrote and performed a hip-hop song about rapper Lil Wayne’s derogatory and sexist lyrics. How much do you love these little girls? Amelia, when you retire in 2031 and replace yourself with the five-year-old girl who won’t marry until…

Kanye West’s “All Of The Lights” Video Is Out — Featuring Rihanna And Kid Cudi

Britney Spears who? The new music video I care about is Kanye West’s “All Of The Lights,” a bittersweet love song about a nasty breakup, featuring Kid Cudi and Rihanna. I’m in love with the beginning and the end of the video where all the lyrics are lit up onscreen, but the middle i…

6 Music Videos With Obvious Product Placement

So what’s the deal with all the product placement in music videos these days? Sure Britney’s video earlier today was filled with subtle – and not so subtle – references to products available on the market. So what’s the deal?

Well, product placements help offset the costs of making videos, which are normally paid…

Woo Hoo! New Radiohead Album And Video

It feels like Christmas in February listening to the new Radiohead album, King of Limbs, which is available for download today from Radiohead.com. As exciting? This new video for “Lotus Flower.” Oh, how I love Thom Yorke’s dancing. His moves are just adorable in an awkward yet not-at-all awkward way. This definitely undoes the…

Yes, Britney—We Will Hold It Against You

So, yesterday, I felt a little giddy about the prospect of a new big budget, big choreography, big costume Britney Spears music video. Only instead of BritBrit dancing in the new dance track “Hold It Against Me,” we get lots of Britney just standing there and gesticulating with her arms while other people dance…

Katy Perry And Kanye West Have Alien Sex

Looks like Katy Perry and Kanye West have made up after beefing over the whole “Imma Let You Finish” debacle. Kanye has added some verses to her new single, “E.T.,” and yesterday Katy posted a photo of the two of them on the set of the new video. So what does Kanye rap about o…

Ani Di Franco And Margaret Cho Bring You … Captain Cameltoe!

This Ani Di Franco/Margaret Cho animated music video for “Captain Cameltoe,” off Cho’s new album Cho Dependent, is something you’ll appreciate fully the more stoned you get. (JK! Don’t do drugs, kids!) But I can’t say my 16-year-old self isn’t thrilled two of her real-life superheroes finally teamed up as Captain Cameltoe and Righteou…

Rihanna Spanks Perez Hilton In Her New Video For “S&M”

You don’t have to love S&M to love Rihanna’s new music video for “S&M,” but it certainly helps! The pop princess’ ode to bondage, dominance and sadomasochism features bondage gear, pink latex, ball gags, and leather switches, and stars gossip blogger Perez Hilton lead around on a leash. (And yes, the fact that Perez…

Avril Lavigne Still Doing The Bratty Badass Teenager Thing

Avril Lavigne’s back with a video for her new single, “What The Hell,” a product placement-happy joy ride in which the punk-pop princess — now 26 — tries to outrun (and outdrive) her super hot, Brody Jenner-esque plaything. Why? I’m not entirely sure. We see Avril in her skivvies, playing basketball, and driving a…

Is Pink’s Video For “F**king Perfect” Exploitative Of Cutters? Or Seriously Addressing Self-Harm?

Pink’s music videos are nothing but provocative — and that’s why I love her. “F**king Perfect” is an angst-ballad about loving and respecting oneself, but the NSFW video, which appeared online yesterday, is all about a young women’s self-hatred. She snorts drugs, shoplifts, and in one gruesome scene, cuts the word “PERFECT” in her…

Jena Malone A Stripper For Dirty Vegas In “Electric Love”

Jena Malone is one of those actresses I love but feel I never see enough of. Here, the “Donnie Darko” and “Into the Wild” star plays a stripper in a music video for Dirty Vegas’ “Electric Love.” The story line isn’t altogether clear (are they ever?), but one man seems to find Malone…

Ricky Martin’s New Song & Gay Pride Video Is Astoundingly Bland

I don’t know what I was expecting from Mr. Easy Listening himself, Ricky Martin. But his new song, “The Best Thing About Me Is You” (with Joss Stone), is as bland as it gets. I can see a class full of kindergartners warbling this to their parents at the school concert. But the music…

Old-School Wednesday: Salt-N-Pepa Make Us Wanna “Shoop”

Ah, a sexy anthem about sexy sex featuring the fine ladies of Salt-N-Pepa. “Shoop” was totally our middle school jam–even when we had no idea what “shoop” meant. […

Kanye’s Leaked “Monster” Video: Sexy Dead Girls, Decapitated Heads, And Other Violence Against Women

Kanye West’s unfinished video for “Monster” has leaked online and it’s a disgusting display of gratuitously sexy dead women. In the opening shot, dead women in lingerie hang from nooses made of chains; the camera lingers on one’s stiletto heels. In a later scene, Kanye lies in bed with two lifeless models, moving…

Enrique Iglesias’ Dirty-Talkin’ New Single And Raunchy Video

That crafty bastard, Enrique Iglesias, has a new single out called “Tonight (I’m F**kin’ You)” — no, seriously, that’s the f**king title — and just released a super soft core video to accompany it, thus stealing my vote for Song of the Year. [There’s also a “clean” version called “Tonight (I’m Lovin’ You),” but it’s

Julianne Hough’s New Video Is “Kinda Banned”


Wait, did you know that Julianne Hough of “Dancing with the Stars” was a country music artist? I had no idea until I read the news this morning that her newest video, “Is That So Wrong,” has been deemed too, well, wrong for Country Music Television. They have apparently “kinda banned” the…

Emerson College’s Epic Lady Gaga Lip Dub

Lord knows, we love a lip-dub. Especially when they’re done by large groups of people–and especially to Lady Gaga. So you know we fell in love with this Gaga-ish one shot lip dub from Emerson University. So many jazz hands! [YouTube]…
