Beyoncé Says 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 favor to Bey, huh?

"Every Inch Of You Is Perfect From The Bottom To The Top"

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 a woman who “ain’t no size 2″ but can “shake it, shake it, like I’m supposed to do?” Every inch of you is perfect from the bottom of the top!

Oh, the things you can do with a smartphone these days! A man named Richard Dunn found himself stuck overnight at the Las Vegas Airport, so he did what any bored adult man with an expensive toy in his pocket would do: he filmed a music video for Celine Dion’s power ballad “All By Myself.” Someone deserves complimentary tickets to Celine’s Vegas show, yes?  [Vimeo]

Guy Proposes With “I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)” Music Video That He Filmed Over 4 Years Of Dating

Filmed In 26 Countries

Jack Hyer didn’t get the first memo, or the second memo, that public proposals are showoff-y and cringe-inducing for everyone around you. But I’ll forgive Jack, because he’s been traveling a lot these past four years. Twenty-six countries, in fact. In every new place, Jack filmed bits of himself singing the karaoke jam “I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)” in preparation of the day he would propose to his girlfriend, Rebecca Strellnauer. As he told ABC News, they dated briefly as teenagers and got back together during their freshman year at the University of Montana in Missoula. After deciding that he knew he wanted to marry at the end of their first date, he planned his proposal for four years, filming the entire time. He showed the proposal video to Rebecca and their families at a graduation party last week. (She said yes, duh.)  I don’t know what I hate (er, envy) the most about Jack Hyer. That he’s traveled to China, Thailand, Turkey, Israel, Tanzania and Cambodia? That he found the woman he wanted to marry in middle school? That he’s really freaking attractive? That he thought up a cute way to propose and pulled it off? Congratulations, you, too. And remember, you’ll only have nine months to plan a baby announcement! [TIME; ABC News]

6 Young Iranians Arrested For “Happy” Music Video Finally Freed

Because They're Happy

Police in Iran arrested six young adults over the weekend for posting a music video on YouTube in which they dance and lip synch to “Happy.” Tehran’s police chief reportedly called the video “obscene” and said it “offend[ed] public morals.” Particularly problematic was how the women were not wearing headscarves and men and women are shown dancing together.

After an outcry from human rights groups, the six were released yesterday and have posted appreciation for the worldwide support they’ve received over social media. However, the director of the amateur music video is still in police custody.  Keep reading »
