Watch: Robin Thicke’s Music Video For “Give It 2 U,” Featuring 2 Chainz, Kendrick Lamar & A Whole Lot Of Booty Dancing

Watch: Robin Thicke's New "Give It To U" Video, Featuring 2 Chainz, Kendrick Lamar & A Whole Lot Of Booty Dancing
"Give It 2 U" Featuring Kendrick Lamar & 2 Chainz

Robin Thicke has found a formula that works for him: Naked girls, plus rappers, plus the Futura font, equals a magical video experience. The video for his new single, “Give It 2 U,” features 2 Chainz and Kendrick Lamar, and brings the scantily clad ladies, previously found employing sheep to cover their naked bosoms, to a football field. The Albany Passionettes and the Alabama State Stingettes — two stellar dance teams — shake their booties, while grown ass women in cotton candy outfits prance around, carrying oversized, paper mache bottles of Brut. There’s a shocking amount of product placement; Thicke swigs from a bottle of Remy Martin, the models are delicately planted around the new Beats by Dr. Dre music players, and there’s a Mini Cooper that gets prime real estate. Thicke positions himself as a campy Lothario, a harmless middle-aged Glenn Quagmire type that you really can’t take seriously — but the song is gooooood.  And here’s what else I like about this video, aside from the song, the dancing and the general lighthearted cheekiness: everyone in the video is given credit. The dance teams are named and the solo dancers are named, giving them a level of subjectivity not often seen in music videos. And I’m certainly not mad at that.

Watch: Pearl Jam’s Music Video For “Mind Your Manners”

Watch: Pearl Jam's Music Video For "Mind Your Manners"
Mind Your Manners!

This weekend is the MTV Video Music Awards, celebrating the year’s best music videos you probably only watched on the web since MTV barely plays video anymore. I have an early suggestion for next year’s Video of the Year: the just released video for Pearl Jam’s new single, “Mind Your Manners,” off their upcoming album, Lightning Bolt. Watch it above — it’s awesome! Natural disasters! Bombs! Eddie Vedder thrashing around! And for nostalgia’s sake, let’s revisit when Pearl Jam won a moon man at the 1993 VMAs for their video for “Jeremy,” after the jump… [Rolling Stone] Keep reading »

Tomorrow! Join Us On Twitter For A “Dirty Dancing” Soundtrack Listening Party!

On August 21, 1987— 26 years ago tomorrow — director Emile Ardolino released greatness upon the world in the form of a classic love story (and my all-time favorite flick!), “Dirty Dancing.”

Not only did the originally low-budget film become a box office hit, but it’s left a lasting impression on generations to come, thanks to what I like to call the movie magic trifecta: a great plot with one-liners you can recite from memory (“Nobody puts Baby in a corner”), memorable characters (I would still have a life-sized Johnny Castle cardboard cutout in my house if it weren’t for a flood in my basement), and, most importantly, an epic soundtrack.

Watch This: Avril Lavigne’s New Video Is So, So Weird

Watch This: Avril Lavigne's New Video Is So, So Weird
Yep, She's Making Out With Winnie Cooper

Remember when we saw those pictures of Avril Lavigne and Danica McKellar dressed up as sexy post-apocalyptic punk rock warriors and we were all like, “Umm, what?” Well, the video they were filming (for Avril’s new song “Rock N Roll”) is finished, and when you see it, you will be like, “Um, WHAT?!” In addition to Danica, the video features a BearShark, a dog funeral, a painfully awkward Sony sponsorship, and, perhaps most confusing of all, Billy Zane on a rocket-powered Segway. Push play, if you think you’re rock n’ roll enough to handle it! [NYMag.com]

Resign!

Hands down, the best part about pop songs is the inevitable parodies that follow. It’s undeniable that “Blurred Lines” is the song of the summer, so it’s without question that a San Diego news station would use the Robin Thicke song for their own parody music video. The staff of U-T TV filmed their very own “Blurred Lines” parody about San Diego’s Mayor Bob Filner, who has been accused of sexual harassment and sexual assault by 16 different women, including constituents and many past employees. His most recent victim, a former employee, said Filner repeatedly asked her out on dates and one day grabbed her and kissed her on the lips. Ick. Keep reading »
