Who knew singing about domestic violence and envy could be so glamorous? I suppose after making it through the rain, all Kelly Rowland wants to do is celebrate. Months after the 32-year-old’s track about past relationships and jealousy regarding Beyonce’s post-DC success first surfaced, the video for “Dirty Laundry” has FINALLY arrived.
I don’t know why it took so long for Kelly to drop the video for arguably her most controversial and buzzed about song off her fourth studio album. Perhaps had a visual dropped sooner, Talk A Good Game might’ve notched better first week sales. Whatever the reason, the Sarah McColgan-directed clip is here. Definitely check it out below and watch Rowland emote.
“Best Song Ever” may not be One Direction’s best track ever, but the accompanying visual is probably one of their best, if not their gayest. I mean c’mon. It features Village People and Kazaky (those Ukranian stiletto-wearing bitches) references, Liam Payne playing a flamboyant choreographer and Zayn Malik doing drag. If that isn’t enough to entice you to watch this supremely gaytastic 1D clip, nothing will. The boys certainly do love being borderline homos, don’t they?
Zayn and Liam aren’t the only ones to don alter egos. The rest of the guys get in on the action as well. Niall and Louis are practically unrecognizable. I have to say for the most part, they pulled of American accents quite nicely. Check out their latest clip below featuring their hijinks, along with footage from their upcoming 3D biopic film.
Well isn’t this a little self indulgent? I kid. The little Disney princess who starred on Wizards of Waverly Place is all grown up. Selena Gomez turns 21 today. In honor of this milestone birthday, Selenars debuted another music video from her Stars Dance album. It’s the second brand new visual (“Slow Down“) in just the past week. Keep them coming Selena.
“I wanted to celebrate my 21st Birthday with all of you, so we made this video for us all to celebrate to,” the entertainer wrote along with the video. “Thank You for all the love and support you have shown and continue to show me. I love you all so much!!” – Selena Gomez
Appropriately enough, the clip is titled “Birthday.” In it, she’s shown partying it up by dancing the night away with her friends as glitter falls from the ceiling. A scene I highly suspect occurs on a frequent basis. Oh, to be young again ;) A group “Happy Birthday” sing-a-long takes place at the end of the video.
Just in case you were wondering if this was her actual celebration, it wasn’t. Even though, I’m certain most of the people in the clip are her friends, Gomez’s big birthday soiree took place over the weekend at the Roosevelt Hotel for a 20s-themed fete. All her celeb friends were in attendance. Now, that’s a video I’d also like to see. Check out Gomez’s new vid below.
Holy vampy Batman!!! Where did this Selena Gomez come from? The 20-year-old singer turns up the sex volume to dangerous decibel levels in her new music video. No wonder Justin Bieber is spiraling out of control. He realizes he most likely won’t snag anyone as hot as Gomez ever.
Thanks to some shady video streaming site over in Asia, we get a leaked version of Gomez’s visual for “Slow Down.” UPDATE: Selena just released the official video on VEVO. Enjoy. Seleners heads to the City of Lights to get her freak on. Whether she’s strutting sexily down a cobblestone street, giving come hither stares in an old school Benz or navigating through neon lights at some Parisian club, Gomez has never looked better. Major fierceness. She’s even channeling vintage Britney with her steamy choreography. I’m living for this clip right now. Check out Selena rockin’ a high pony (I miss my samurai pony ;) below. It’s everything.
The Backstreet Boys premiered their brand new video on Good Morning America today. It shows couples watching television witnessing historic moments in history- the 1969 moon landing, the falling of the twin towers on 9/11 and the recent Supreme Court DOMA ruling. That’s right, BSB is getting all marriage equality on us. I don’t normally get emotional watching music videos, but the last vignette surprisingly touched me.
“BSB wants to show our support for the LGBT community and we believe that two people of the same sex should have the right to get married,” A.J. McLean explained to GMA. “The concept of the video is based on the song, which tells a story of how love conquers all and ‘in a world like this’ that we live in, with all the craziness and negative energy that can go around, with real love you can overcome anything.”
“In A World Like This” is the lead cut from their upcoming eighth studio album. The boy band reunited with their longtime collaborator Max Martin for the up-tempo track. Even before watching the clip, I was already lovin’ it. It’s definitely their best since their hey day. While their other boy band compatriots band together for The Package Tour, BSB are hitting the road with DJ Pauly D and Jesse McCartney. Check out their new visual below.
Given its patriotic vibe, I was fully expecting Demi Lovato to premiere the music video for “Made In The USA” around the Fourth of July. Two weeks later, the visual has finally arrived. Was it worth the wait? I’d say so. It’s by far one of Lovato’s best clips. Unlike “Heart Attack,” this one actually has a narrative. Perhaps, Demi should consider commanding more of her clips. The 20-year-old X Factor judge co-directed it with Ryan Pallotta.
The nearly five-minute video showcases star-crossed lovers, played by Dustin Milligan (90210) and Aimee Teegarden (Friday Night Lights), who meet at a carnival. Their romance is put on hold when that sexy Milligan departs for military action. Don’t worry, there’s a happy ending. Meanwhile, Lovato playfully mugs for the camera and strums her guitar for carnival goers. Check out the video below which features love, war and fireworks. Hopefully, the newly-released clip will propel the single to Top 10 status like its predecessor.
Apparently naked is the new black. From Robin Thicke to Justin Timberlake to Calvin Harris, having naked people in your music video is all the rage these days. Goldfrapp is the latest to jump on the trend.
Lead singer Alison Goldfrapp strolls through an empty mansion as some naked people frolic around her. It’s one big hallucinatory orgy in the English countryside. The Lisa Gunning-directed clip is part of a film which shall accompany the whole album.
“Drew” is the lead cut from the English electronic music duo’s upcoming sixth studio album, Tales Of Us. It’s the first album from the group, minus a greatest hits compilation, in over three years. If “Drew” is an indication of things to come, their new album will be one lush reflective piece of ear candy. Check out their new video below.
In my opinion, Calvin Harris barely makes a misstep. With seven Top 10 hits off 18 Months, it’s hard to argue against that point. The Scottish DJ just released the music video for his eighth single off the album. At this point, he might as well film a clip for every track. It’s surely headed that way. As much as I love Harris, the visual for “Thinking About You” is a bit of a letdown which is a shame because the track is one of my favorites. It definitely deserves better than this.
To describe the Vincent Haycock-directed clip as ridiculously random would be an understatement. It’s Scarface meets Pitbull music video with a dash of 80s vigilante movie nostalgia thrown in. To boot, it’s also very explicit. It begins with a topless woman walking through a mansion and then segues to a couple having sex in a private jet, some lesbian action at the club and teenage boys fighting. Poor guest vocalist Ayah Marah gets the short end of the stick. The Jordanian singer gets her yacht hijacked by pirates. Harris on his part only briefly appears in the clip working the turntables. Check out the vid below.
