Colbie Caillat Goes Makeup-Free In Her New “Try” Music Video

In the music video for her new single, "Try," singer Colbie Caillat bares her lovely face without makeup, and looks that much happier without it. The song is all about the oh-so-familiar pressure women are under to chase perfection, and she co-wrote it with Babyface, of all people, who encouraged her to speak out about…

10 Life Lessons Learned From The Spice Girls On The 18-Year Anniversary Of “Wannabe” (In GIFs)

Eighteen years ago today, The Spice Girls put their stamp on the world by releasing "Wannabe." It's hard to believe I was just a little pigtailed eight-year-old at the time, but this song has remained one of my favorite jams and girl power anthems over the years, crowned as my karaoke song of choice. (And…

Lily Allen Confronts Her Internet Trolls

I liked Lily Allen's song "URL Badman" to begin with, but I love it now that there's commenters up on YouTube screaming "misandry" over the new music video.

I guess at some point The Frisky should start ignoring Robin Thicke and his cries for attention. But right now we're still caught in the vicious What, really? REALLY?!? cycle. Today, Thicke released a new music video from Paula, his album about estranged wife Paula Patton, for a song called "Still Madly Crazy." The melancholy song…

In case musical tributes to Supreme Court documents aren't your jam, here's a much quieter roundup of the eight best lines from Justice Ginsberg's dissent.

This Surprise Backstreet Boys’ Groomsmen Performance Is The Wedding Dance To Trump All Others

This performance by newlywed Sean Rajaee and his groomsmen is pretty much my favorite wedding video of all time and I cannot stop watching it on repeat. Rajaee secretly choreographed the dance as a surprise for his bride, and lots of the groomsmen lived out of town and had to learn the routine via video…

Robin Thicke Tries To Woo Paula Patton Back With Self-Flagellating Video For “Get Her Back”

Robin Thicke sure is sorry he was photographed groping that girl's butt. And he's very sorry that he and Miley Cyrus humped each other onstage at the VMAs. But even after he and his wife of 10 years Paula Patton released a statement in February saying "we have mutually decided to separate at this time," Thicke…

T.I. & Iggy Azalea’s “No Mediocre” Collaboration Is A Bunch Of Sexist Crap

Hip-hop is probably my favorite genre of music, but goddamn, sometimes the lyrics can go and ruin a perfectly great song. Such is the case with T.I.'s collaboration with Iggy Azalea, "No Mediocre," which musically is cool and catchy and would be super fun to dance to -- if not for the lyrics being painfully…

Destiny’s Child Reunites For Michelle Williams’ Gospel Song “Say Yes”

Michelle Williams from Destiny's Child has a new single out and it's all about Jesus! Apparently she is super Christian and I had no idea. Anyway, both Beyoncé and Kelly Rowland appear on the gospel song and in the video above, although this isn't being billed as a Destiny's Child endeavor. Someone called in a…

9 Actors & Actresses Who Are In Bands That Don’t Suck

No matter how many times he sadly sits down to eat a cupcake alone on a park bench — and you endlessly insert that same picture into images filled with cats or a reproduction of Lunch Atop A Skyscraper or whatever—Keanu Reeves will forever be known as the man who started Dogstar and, in turn, ruined…

Meghan Trainor’s “All About That Base” Is The Body Positive Anthem Of The Summer — And It’s FUN!

I love everything about Meghan Trainor's song "All ABout That Bass": it's catchy, it's body positive, and the retro outfits and set design are so adorable. I just want to jump inside the music video and shake my booty in a pastel A-line from ModCloth. And what's not to love about a summer anthem about…

Activities are wonderful, but sometimes, it’s fine to want to shut the world out for a couple of days, and make some serious time for you. Don’t be afraid of FOMO, either.

The Beyoncélogues: Actress Reads Beyoncé Lyrics As Dramatic Monologues

Ever tried (and failed!) to sing Beyoncé at karaoke? I have! And so has actress Nina Millin, whose terrible attempt at warbling Bey inspired her to try performing some of her songs as dramatic monologues instead. So far, she's tackled "Irreplaceable" (above), "Mine" and "If I Were A Boy" (after the jump), all of which work…

I’m Loving This Remake Of “Happy” From Fukushima, Japan

I never get tired of "Happy" videos -- they're just too much fun! The city of Fukushima, Japan, is the latest to join the party with their own version of Pharrell's hit music video, and as the area has seen a lot of tough times these past few years, it's especially poignant. Tsunamis, earthquakes and radiatio…

Lena Dunham graced "Late Night with Seth Meyers" with an interpretive dance to Sia's "Chandelier." Complete with a blonde wig, Lena offered her own hilarious take on the song's music video while Sia just kinda chilled out face down on a bed onstage. Can Lena do a dance like this to every hit song?
