Rihanna stars in Kanye West’s video for “Paranoid.” Why is she appearing in a music video for a song she doesn’t even sing on? We have a few ideas:

Beyonce’s “Ego” Video: Boring!

We get it, Beyonce, Sasha Fierce is great at dancing. Now can we have an exciting video, please? I’m rather disappointed by the crop of videos Beyonce is putting out for her I am…Sasha Fierce. The “Diva” video was just a mash-up of her other videos. And now “Ego” looks like it wa…

What’s With Guys Wanting Women Who Don’t Speak?

This morning, I flew back to New York and caught up on my pop music by listening to the Top 20on20 on XM radio, the one perk Airtran provides. Most of the music was expected — Lady GaGa, Miley Cyrus, Black Eyed Peas — but I’d never heard one of the songs that made it…

Shut Up And Watch Katy Perry’s “Waking Up In Vegas” Video

The title of this song says it all. High-stakes gambling, luxury hotel rooms, sparkly clothes, and bright lights abound in this Sin City dream featuring a wide-eyed Katy Perry. Oh, and the song isn’t bad either.

Crave: Jenny Owen Youngs’ “Led To The Sea”

We don’t develop girl crushes on many women. In fact, we’re kind of picky about who gets our admiration, because not many possess smarts, looks, spunk, and silliness in one package. Jenny Owen Youngs meets our criteria, and we can’t wait for her album Transmitter Failure to come out next month. We snuck a listen,…

Justin Timberlake Gets Manhandled By Ciara

We feel a little dirty watching so much gyrating this early in the morning, but what better way to wake up than by seeing Ciara and Justin Timberlake shake it in the video for “Love Sex Magic”? What do you think of Ciara’s style? We think she’s copping Beyonce’s look a little with…

New Bat for Lashes Video: Daniel

A new video arrives from Bat for Lashes: “Daniel.” Directed by Johan Renck, who’s directed videos for Madonna and Kylie Minogue, it’s sort of in the same surreal vein as “What’s a Girl to Do?” A little bit Stevie Nicks, a little bit Bjork, the melancholy music vid stars Natasha Khan in tear-streaked…
