I know MTV doesn’t care, but I love a good music video. Recently, a lot of entertaining ones have been released. I would like to share a few of my new favs.
Say hello to Mike WiLL Made-It — ft. Miley Cyrus, Juicy J & Wiz Khalifa. I honestly have no idea why I’m into this song. I really don’t even know what it’s about, but I find myself listening to it quite frequently.
I have actually thought about this being my theme song when I walk into places such as malls, grocery stores and even work. Anyways, my favorite part of the music video is watching Miley Cyrus be a BAMF.
Does anyone else want to sit on a basketball hoop and rap? I know I do.
Hold On, We’re Going Home
This music video mashes all of life’s most beautiful things: Drake, the year 1985 and A$AP Rocky. Watching this music video is like 7 minutes in heaven…really, the music video is 7 minutes long. It chronicles Drake saving his lady from a kidnapper. It’s really beautiful, you’ll see.
Does anyone else wish that Drake would dress like Miami Vice from now on?
Obviously you had to see this one coming, right? I have to say, I really enjoyed watching this music video. It made me feel exotic, when in reality I was sitting on the couch with the cats.
I have a few favorite parts that I must share:
1. How do I get a vanity set in the desert? I would like to place mine approximately 2 feet from Brit’s. I’m trying to borrow that perfume.
2. Does the dancing scene with the gloves remind anyone of the Me Against the Music era?
3. God, Britney looks GREAT! The weave, dance moves and facial expressions are all in check.
Britney, I’m so, I’m so, I’m so proud of you.
Many people’s favorite time of year falls around the holiday season or the beginnings of summer. My favorite time is neither of those…it’s when Britney Spears releases new music.
As you may have guessed, that day is RIGHT NOW!
Before you listen to Brit’s new jam, I would like to say a few words. If you haven’t visited http://britneyspears.com in a while, the site has been displaying a countdown with the phrase All Eyes on Me. There has been much speculation as to what this countdown was counting towards. For a few days I thought it was for the Vegas tour announcement, but now I realize it’s for a NEW MUSIC VIDEO! If you can’t tell, I’m freaking out!
Here is what we have all been waiting for. It’s time to Work Bitch!
A few things I’ve learned/realized from this song:
- Britney loves using the word Bitch
- She must have some English roots, because Brit is really going British these days
- I need to start purchasing leotards to wear on casual friday
Lyrics to look out for: Go call the police / Go call the governor / I bring the trouble / That means the trouble y’all
Keep an eye out for Brit’s new music video. It will be revealed in 1 day, 11 hours, 56 minutes and 25 seconds. I mean 24 seconds. No wait 23 seconds. Jesus, you get the point.
I would want it to play out just like Katy Perry’s new music video for “Roar.” Haven’t seen it yet? Thank goodness I’m here to share it with you.
While watching this music video, I thought how great I would look in a leopard top, a skirt made out of leaves and a leather strap wrapped around my arm to show off my guns. I know I would look so good that I’m even considering wearing that exact ensemble for Causal Friday.
At first, I thought this music video was a little redic. After watching it three and a half times, I realized that Katy always gives us ladies such positive anthems (Remember “Firework” and “Part of Me“). Because of her lady anthems, it’s hard not to love her imitation of a tiger roaring loudly.
There are a few highlights to Katy’s new music video that I would like to share with you:
- Katy teaches us how to make a spear with a high heel and a stick
- She trains an elephant to be a portable shower…snaps for Katy
- She also assists an alligator practice good hygiene by brushing his teeth
- Katy enjoys taking selfies with a monkey. It’s amazing that Katy’s cell still works in the jungle. She must have a solar-powered charger.
Those are just a few of my favorite moments in the four-minute video. If you don’t have time to watch, I’ll tell you the ending…Katy becomes queen of the jungle. Get it girl.
P.S. Katy – Can you tell me how you hair looks so damn good in that jungle heat? Give a girl some tips!
Occasionally I like to creep on iTunes for new songs that I can’t live without and at $1.29 a pop I better not be able to live without them! Anywho, I came across musical bad ass Kylie Minogue and her new single “Time Bomb.”
As usual, Kylie has yet to disappoint and anyone who can wear a dress made out a few pieces of string and three scraps of fabric is a hero in my book. Hint: watch the whole music video and you will see what I mean.
After watching “Time Bomb,” this spurred me to look up some older Kylie jams and I came across my all-time favise Kylie song…”Red Blooded Woman.” As they say, you don’t choose what you love, it chooses you…and in this case that’s 100% truth.
“Red Blooded Woman” can be found on Kylie’s ninth studio album “Body Language,” released in 2003. The song did really well in the UK, reaching the number four spot and not too bad in the U.S…reaching number 24 on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Party chart (yes, this exists).
Favise lyrics: “You’ll never get to heaven if you’re scared of getting high”
While I love the song, I love the video even more! Now that I drive to and from work, I get stuck in the occasional rage-blackout inducing traffic jam. If I just take Kylie’s approach, I can reduce my blood pressure and probably meet some new people along the way. Let me explain.
In the musical video interpretation of “Red Blooded Woman,” Kylie get stuck in traffic. Instead of blacking out and/or lighting up a cigarette like the rest of the traffic participants, Kylie exits the vehicle and dances provocatively along the highway. Now my question is…why didn’t I think of this?
Kylie – Thank you for giving me something constructive to do while in traffic. I will be forever grateful.
Kelly Clarkson’s new music video for “Dark Side” has hit the Interweb!
While I was praying for “Let Me Down” to be the American Idol’s third single off “Stronger,” I’ll admit that “Dark Side” is a good jam…especially when you have the privilege to hear it live. You can really hear that famous Clarkson rage.
Anywho, the video isn’t a favorite of mine, but I have to support Team Clarkson and show it to my millions of followers! And by millions…I mean my mom, roommates and the cats <3
I have to say, Kelly is looking good! Get it girl.
With the weekend coming to a close, I think you could use another J.Lo jam to get your spirits up before a case of the Mondays hit.
‘Jenny From The Block’
There are many, many reasons to the love this song/music video. Don’t worry, I’ll only be highlighting two:
1. Did you know that Jennifer is from the Bronx…more specifically the South-Side? Don’t feel bad if you didn’t…she reminds us every time the chorus hits.
2. One of my hobbies is reminiscing about celebrity couples from the past. J.Lo not only provided one of the greatest/awkward celebrity couples, but whored it out in the music video. Hint: Bennifer.
Even though this song is basically J.Lo telling everyone about all the great shit she has…I’m still into it. I like hearing about the rocks that she got and that she used to have a little, but now she has a lot.
Now lets discuss the most important aspect of this video…Bennifer. I have always wondered why Ben Affleck participated in this video…J.Lo must have really had his ass whipped.
I can only imagine the boatloads of harassment Affleck took after this video was released and especially after his engagement with the singer ended. I can practically hear Matt Damon asking Ben “Remember that time you slapped J.Lo’s ass on a yacht and it was in that music video?” Poor Ben.
One good thing about Bennifer…J.Lo really turned Ben from a scruffy dude to a leading Hollywood man who uses hair gel and wears expensive suits.
J.Lo – Thank you for getting Ben on point and prepping him for his next Jennifer…Garner that is.
Last Thursday Nicki Minaj released the musical video for her single “Starships.” I have finally gotten around to watching it and after viewing and reviewing the video I have two things to say:
- Holy crow
- I’ll never get those four minutes back
From the first time I heard “Starships” I have always had a bit of an issue with the song. I feel like Nicki is trying to jam three different genres into one song. Is it a pop song or a rap song…could it be house music? Does anyone know? Has anyone asked Lil’ Wayne? He might know.
The music video does not help me answer the question either. It’s basically Nicki running around on a Hawaiian beach…nothing special. There is also a spaceship and men dressed in paint and cloths. Been there, seen that.
Nicki – get it together.
Beyoncé has two halos?
My roommates and I are big fans of music video countdowns and since MTV has forgotten it’s a music channel, the Fuse network has taken its place in our hearts.
Even though I have previously posted about “Halo,” I was educated last night by the lady on Fuse and now feel compelled to share my new knowledge with you.
Side note: While Kanye thinks that Beyoncé’s best video of all time was “Single Ladies,” I’m going to have to disagree and go with “Halo.”
Anywho, last night, while watching the 20 sexiest videos by singer/actress Beyoncé, I learned that there was an alternative music video for “Halo.” Next thing I knew I was experiencing whiplash over the fact that I didn’t know this. To my surprise, the info was legit.
Now for my comments on the piece.
As usual Lady B looks fierce and the gentleman in the video is on point.
I actually like this version more than I like the official version. I just wish I knew why Beyoncé’s man was being chased and killed by a dog. Along with that, why was money thrown across the forest ground? I’m thinking there was some mob action involved.
In the end, it doesn’t matter what Beyoncé did or didn’t do in the musical video version of “Halo.” She could have sat in a dark room and mouthed the words for all I cared…I would never shut Beyoncé out.
P.S. stay tuned for Topless Tuesday!
While it may be some other religious-like holiday, I have officially deemed today…Drake Day.
Why you ask? One of the most handsome rappers alive has released not one…but TWO new music videos. I’ll give you a moment to process this greatness. Breathe into a paper bag if necessary.
The first music video is “HYFR” ft. Lil’ Wayne (ugh). It chronicles Drake’s re-bar mitzvah, which he celebrated back in 2011. The video starts off with a smaller version of Drake getting his groove on then transports us to the sweet, sweet party.
Leave it to Lil’ Wayne to be underdressed for the occasion.
The next video released on Drake Day is….”Take Care” ft. his number one lady Rihanna. Honestly, when are these two going to stop beating around the microphone and get married?!
It makes everyone on the planet so sad to continuously see the pain in Rihanna’s precious eyes.
While I don’t understand the concept of the snowy mountain, the big bird and the bull…I do love the shots of RiRi and Drizzy together.
Even though it is Drake Day…this message goes out to Rihanna: Girl, let Drake take care of you.
Kelis’ milkshake brought all the boys to the yard?
I certainly remember and I’m still wondering what the Kelis version of a milkshake actually means. According to Urban Dictionary, a milkshake could be:
- What “brings all the boys to the yard” and causes them to fall in love with you and do whatever you want.
- If you’re milkshake is really good you don’t even have to ask, they do it automatically.
- A milkshake is a female’s mojo. Something that can’t be taught but you are born with. Either you have it or you don’t.
Now that we have solved that mystery, “Milkshake” is a jam by R&B/Hip-Hop star Kelis that was released Aug. 25, 2005. You can locate it on the album titled, “Tasty.” I am deeming this song an oldie, but still a God damn goodie.
“Milkshake” reached number three on the Billboard Hot 100 and is considered Kelis’ best charting song to date. Let’s be real…it’s her only good song.
What I think really makes this song awesome is the music video. It consists of Kelis entering a diner called Tasty’s Yard and dancing seductively with an actual milkshake for three minutes. Keep an eye out for a Nas cameo. Side note: Nas used to be hitched to Kelis but the couple divorced in 2009 when Kelis was seven months pregnant…sad face.
Anywho…favise lyrics: “I could teach you, but I have to charge” | favise part of music video: when Kelis is gyrating on the diner counter.
Moral of this story…shake your milkshake and the boys will come running.
