With the 2015 MTV VMAs airing on Sunday night, many artists seized the moment to debut music videos. Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus and Nick Jonas all premiered new clips. Justin Bieber joined in on the action by dropping the accompanying visual for his well-received new single “What Do You Mean?

Given that the Poo Bear and Skrillex co-production has a tropical house sound, I was expecting the music video would be a sunny lighthearted affair. Boy, was I wrong.

Instead, the Brad Furman-directed clip features The Biebs concocting an elaborate prank that involves John Leguizamo abducting his on-screen love interest played by model Xenia Deli. After being bound and gagged, his girlfriend finds herself at a surprise underground skateboarder rave. Now that’s romance ;) Check out the random music video below.

It was a busy night for Miley Cyrus on Sunday. Not only did the 22-year-old singer host the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards but she also dropped a brand new album and music video. If that wasn’t enough, Cyrus also engaged in a bitch fight with Nicki Minaj on live television. It was epic and will undoubtedly be played for years to come.

Recently in an interview with The New York Times, Cyrus shared her thoughts on Nicki Minaj’s outrage at “Anaconda” being snubbed in the Video of the Year category. While Minaj clearly forgave Taylor Swift for her comments on that subject (ergo Taylor joining Nicki on stage), she hasn’t given the same courtesy to Miley.

After giving her acceptance speech for Best Hip-Hop Video, all hell broke loose. “Back to this bitch that had a lot of say about me the other day in the press. Miley Cyrus, what’s good?” Minaj said. Cyrus, not one to back down, fired right back, even looking at Nicki’s way when she talked about losers. You have to watch the entire interaction below if you haven’t already done so.

In other Miley-related news, she dropped her fifth studio effort immediately after the show. Miley Cyrus and Her Dead Petz was released as a free streamable album. Early word regarding her new LP was that it was experimental. And that it is.

The 23-track offering is definitely not pop music. There’s not one radio-friendly mainstream song out of the bunch. I do applaud Miley for taking an artistic risk though, albeit an indulgent one. Listen to the album below, along with watching the music video for “Dooo It.” It’s pretty much a closeup of Miley’s mouth and plenty of glitter.

The “Levels” music video is pretty cliche with all the scantily-dressed women slithering about. But with that being said, it’s watchable due to its interesting art direction and Nick Jonas naturally of course. The 22-year-old singer has never been sexier. Even all covered up.

The Colin Tilley-directed music video is set in an abandoned warehouse. With piles of tires and empty oil barrels as a backdrop, Jonas rocks some slick denim and distressed graphic tees.

I wasn’t a fan of the song originally, but it’s grown on me. This smoldering new visual will further solidify Nick’s quest to become his generation’s Justin Timberlake. Check out the clip below.

By the time an artist releases their album’s fifth single, the accompanying music video is some low-budget affair that might incorporate concert footage. Not the case for Taylor Swift. The budget for her clips appear to be getting bigger and bigger. Her latest is a cinematic masterpiece.

Wisely, the 25-year-old has reunited with frequent collaborator Joseph Khan to direct. Taking inspiration from classic romance flicks like Out of Africa, The Notebook and The English Patient, T-Swizzle cozies up to super sexy Scott Eastwood to give those cinematic pairings from the aforementioned clips a run for their money.

The “Wildest Dreams” video probably won’t break the VEVO 24-hour record set by “Bad Blood” given that it doesn’t have an endless parade of famous friends, but it should do quite nicely. Swift is donating proceeds from the clip to the wild animal conservation efforts by African Parks Foundation of America.

As much as I adore any shirtless moment featuring Eastwood, the scene where Taylor wears that flowy mustard dress is my favorite. She looks absolutely stunning there. Watch the video below.

Rita Ora Enlists Fetty Wap For ‘Body On Me’ Remix

In: Donovan, Music

Fetty Wap currently occupies the No. 8, 9 and 11 spot on the Billboard Hot 100. With that kind of success, it’s no wonder Rita Ora enlisted the 25-year-old rapper for a remix of her current single “Body On Me.” Maybe some of his good luck will rub off on her. Girl is thirsty for a hit.

Chris Brown, who’s featured on the original, still remains on the new version. However, his verses are pushed back to make room for Fetty’s vocals. Surprisingly, Wap shows off his singing talent instead of his lyrical prowess.

Personally, I like the original version more. I’m not a fan of the reworked beat. But who knows? It might grow on me. I originally was ho-hum about “Body On Me” but quickly changed my tune once I saw the accompanying visual. Now, I can’t get enough of it. Give the remix a listen below.

After a greatest hits compilation and delivering a baby, Carrie Underwood is back with a brand new album. Looking better than ever might I add. The 32-year-old American Idol winner looks beyond stunning in her newly-released music video and in the cover art for her forthcoming fifth studio LP, Storyteller. Motherhood definitely agrees with her.

Smoke Break” is the first taste off her new effort. Carrie stays true to the formula that’s made her a country superstar. It’s a feel-good rockin’ country anthem. It’s all about letting your hair down and unwinding after hard times.

Interestingly though, there’s not one person lighting up a cigarette in the accompanying visual. Underwood drives down Nashville roads en route to a gig while vignettes of individuals embodying the song’s lyrics are shown. Check out the Randee St. Nicholas-directed clip below.

Mother’s Day was a few months ago and it’s not Diana Ross’ birthday anytime soon but Tracee Ellis Ross decided to pay homage to her legendary mother this past weekend. The black-ish actress recreated one of Ross’ most iconic music videos, nearly frame by frame.

“Often in today’s images (moving and still), we are being objectified or we objectifying ourselves. I think it is meant to be an empowered act, a reclaiming of our bodies.”

“I decided to recreate the video and try to feel the joy of being in my body while offering up tribute to my glorious mother,” Ellis Ross shared on her website. “I hope it inspires you to find and be in the joy of your own body!”

Clearly, Tracee Ellis is the lucky recipient of her mother’s genes in the physique department. She can work her body like her mama. Check out both versions of the “Work That Body” video below.

The Weeknd Debuts ‘Tell Your Friends’ Music Video

In: Donovan, Music

The Weeknd drops his second studio album Beauty Behind The Madness this week. Based on what I’ve heard so far, the 25-year-old Canadian crooner will avoid the dreaded sophomore slump. “The Hills” and “Can’t Feel My Face” were both Billboard Hot 100 Top 5 hits and his latest is poised to follow the same trajectory.

Abel Tesfaye aka The Weeknd just debuted his latest visual to promote his LP’s release. And it’s a dark one. “Tell Your Friends” produced by Kanye West features Weeknd getting buried alive. He later appears above ground firing his gun at the same man who appeared in the his “Can’t Feel My Face” video.

Check out the Grant Singer-directed video below, along with a Beauty Behind The Madness album sampler. His album sounds so good.
