Dirty Work” has such potential to become Austin Mahone’s breakout hit. The funky track shows off a more mature side of the 19-year-old singer. Who knew the Texan had so much urban swagger?

Sadly though, Mahone has released an underwhelming music video for the catchy single. The Gil Green and Kenny Kool-Aid co-directed visual pays homage to The Office and goes for a humorous approach.

It’s a tad too literal, IMHO. This isn’t the “Dirty Work” I had in mind. Personally, a sexier route would’ve benefited the sizzling track much better.

“We were like, let’s make a video where we are all stuck in an office, and we are all super bored and our boss keeps us over, and then he leaves and we have a huge party in the office,” Austin revealed about the video’s concept. “It’s me and my coworkers, and we are running around and dancing and then there is this new girl that comes in, and I’m showing her around, and we like each other a little bit, and we are getting a little freaky in the boss’s office.”

Watch Mahone below goof off with his co-workers, drink Slurpees and flirt with the hot new employee.

After a fun-filled weekend, Mondays can sometimes feel like a bitch. If there’s a promise of a shirtless pic of Calvin Harris on a weekly basis, I might actually look forward to them. That Taylor Swift, among being rich, young and beautiful, is one lucky chick to call this slab of beef hers.

A new image of the 31-year-old producer wearing only his underwear has surfaced. It’s the latest image from the Scottish stud’s ad campaign for Emporio Armani. “The new Emporio Armani Fall/Winter campaign @armani #CalvinHarrisforEA,” he tweeted. Check out the full pic below.

I’m sure by now you’ve heard the sad news of Bobbi Kristina Brown’s tragic passing. The 22-year-old only daughter of Whitney Houston died Sunday in an Atlanta-area hospice nearly six months after she was found unresponsive in a bathtub.

“Bobbi Kristina Brown (March 4, 1993 – July 26, 2015). It is hard to say goodbye. On Sunday, July 26, Bobbi Kristina Brown made her transition peacefully. The family thanks everyone for their loving thoughts and prayers. As Bobbi Kristina would say: ‘The wind is behind me and the sun is in my face.’” – Posted on Whitney’s Official Facebook

If you recall, the “I Will Always Love You” singer drowned in a bathtub as well three years ago on the eve of her Grammy performance. Bobbi Kristina will be laid to rest alongside Whitney’s body in New Jersey.

Bobby Brown has broken his silence over the tragic death of his daughter. He spoke to Us Weekly.

“Krissy was and is an angel,” Bobby told Us Weekly. “I am completely numb at this time. My family must find a way to live with her in spirit and honor her memory. Our loss is unimaginable.”

Our condolences go out to Brown and Houston’s families. Check out more celeb reactions below, including tweets from Oprah Winfrey, Dionne Warwick and more.

When Disclosure first hooked up with Sam Smith, magic transpired. The undeniably catchy “Latch” became a global smash and introduced the world to these two talented acts. Smith became a Grammy and media darling while Disclosure churned out more club anthems.

The two reunite for what will undoubtedly be another hit collabo. “Omen” is the second single off Disclosure’s Caracal album.

“It was really exciting,” Disclosure’s Howard Lawrence said in a statement. “We had three whole days to hang out with Sam and write, which are two of my favorite things to do.”

For the accompanying visual, Ryan Hope was enlisted again to direct the clip. He did four videos for them during this era, two of which have yet to premiere. “Omen” takes place two weeks after the events of “Holding On.”

Check out the Smith-assisted new track below. I’m already obsessed.

where-the-bears-are-season-4

New episodes go online every Monday and Thursday beginning August 24. Check out the trailer below.

staten-island-summer-trailer

As with any Lorne Michaels-produced film, Staten Island Summer features a handful of current and past Saturday Night Live cast members. Will Forte, Bobby Moynihan, Fred Armisen, Cecily Strong and Colin Jost are among those who appear in the comedy film. Jost played double duty and also wrote the screenplay.

Staten Island Summer isn’t anything groundbreaking but looks like it’ll provide a few laughs. It’s giving me a Porky’s meets American Pie type of vibe. Two teenage buddies and their motley crew throw one last huge bash before heading off to college. Naturally, a hot girl that one friend has been crushin’ on for years is the ultimate conquest. Ashley Greene plays the unattainable girl-next-door.

Staten Island Summer arrives on Netflix on July 30, but is already available for digital download. Check out the trailer below.

run-the-world-dance-tribute

Beyonce’s 4 era was highly-underrated.The highest-charting single off that album was “Best Thing I Never Had” which peaked at No. 16. Following up her commercially and critically-acclaimed I Am… Sasha Fierce album was a monumental task, even for Queen B.

I’m not a hardcore card-carrying member of the BeyHive but I enjoy listening to “Love on Top,” “End of Time” and “Run the World (Girls)” more today than when they were first initially released. Like wine, the tracks have aged quite nicely.

I utterly hated “Run the World (Girls)” when I first heard it, but now think it’s one of Bey’s finest moments. Over the years, I’ve enjoyed watching numerous dance tributes to the female empowering anthem. This recent one featuring Larsen Thompson and Taylor Hatala is one of the fiercest. These girls can daaaaaaance. Watch them slay the choreography below and literally walk over men in the corporate world.

kate-ryan-runaway-smalltown-boy-video

Toying with a classic track, especially a much-revered gay anthem, is a difficult juggling act. Bronski Beat’s “Smalltown Boy” addressed key issues including homophobia in the 80s, bullying and loneliness due to family rejection. The accompanying visual was a moving one which featured band member Jimmy Somerville flashing back to the events that motivated him to runaway.

Kate Ryan does an astounding job with her cover. Her vocals over a deep house beat give the track a contemporary vibe but also keeping it quite somber. The same can’t be said for the music video. It’s kind of a host mess if you ask me.

The Belgian dance diva is shown riding a horse before stumbling upon a group of young adults camping. “Runaway (Smalltown Boy)” isn’t exactly a feel-good campfire song. So random?!?!?! Check out the Pascal Baillien and Wim Rombouts-directed visual below.
