Fresh Pop Culture
The “Your Body” video makes it clear Aguilera still has it and plans to flaunt it. If the rest of her Lotus album proves to usher the singer into a new era of pop music as capably as the lead single, Pop Blend expects Lotus to do pretty well on the charts. We’ll have to wait and find out when Aguilera’s seventh full-length album drops on November 13.
Now, Jermaine Clement and Bret McKenzie have joined together to produce “Feel Inside (And Stuff Like That),” a new song created to help a New Zealand charity focusing on research for kids to raise money. The duo first met up with some New Zealand kids to get some perspective on how to write a good song for charity.
A little over a week ago, the release of the Flaming Lips’ nudity-filled video for “The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face” caused quite a stir, both because it was incredibly graphic and because it was incredibly offensive to Erykah Badu who appeared in the clip. Now Sigur Ros has offered its own nudity-filled video for “Fjogur Piano”, and it too is generating headlines, though more for its rampant weirdness and who actually gets naked than anything else
Earlier this year, the Flaming Lips decided to team up with Erykah Badu to film a music video for their collaboration “The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face”. Lead singer Wayne Coyne presented Badu with an outline of how he saw the clip going. He wanted Badu to be in a bathtub filled with glitter, blood and other fluids. The singer was having no part of that, but out of respect for their partnership, she extended the offer to her little sister who accepted.
That’s right, folks, Bieber opted for some swag in his newest track, offering sort of rap-spoken verses that manage to rhyme “you” with “fondue” before popping into a catchy hook that reminds us why Bieber has gotten so popular in the first place. The video features a lot of women in short shorts, including one brunette Bieber particularly has eyes for.
Season 10 American Idol contestant Haley Reinhart was a fan favorite in her season, even if she never pulled through with the final prize. Luckily, a third place win ensured the 21 year-old singer had enough fans, or in her case “Haliens,” to ensure she earned her own record deal.
The band’s latest music video endeavor, “Tuck the Darkness In” is a great example of what Bowerbirds can achieve as a band, standing out as much for its harmonic, orchestral music as for its lovely little video tale of a young boy and his relationship to fish.
I love watching his head swivel in different directions as beautiful women walk past him. He might still be getting older while the high school girls are staying the same age, but that doesn’t mean his fundamental personality characteristics have changed at all. And how perfect is this song to accompany his slow motion stroll around the dance floor? I love everything about this video.
What do you do when you’ve tied Michael Jackson for the most singles per record? Katy Perry’s philosophy is pretty simple - put out another single, of course. After filming the video for the newly promoted track in late September and early October, the singstress decided to premiere her sixth video off of the 2010 hit album Teenage Dream yesterday on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
Maybe this is the next step fin Shia’s career that shows he’s not simply an actor anymore, but a force to be reckoned with? The video still gives me the creeps, but I’m glad that it was Sam Witwicky who took me on that ride.
The video for Lady Gaga's latest single "Yoü and I" was supposed to premiere on MTV this Thursday, but the singe herself has leaked it via her Twitter account. While the song itself is one of the more traditional sounding efforts she's put out-- no autotune, no funky dance tracks, a strong emphasis on guitar and drums-- the video is one of the strangest
This is the first Jonze directed music video where I felt alienated. It’s as though Yeezy and Hov have taken their ideas from past videos featuring cars, girls, and senseless rapping in front of cameras and brought it to an unnecessary next level. “Otis” is like almost every other rap video in existence
With talent like comedian Donald Glover, and the adorable Mortez, this video wasn't anything short of amazing. The story complimented “Our Deal” and helped give Barrymore a stronger cred among directing. Her movie Whip It was a deal breaker for her skills as a filmmaker, but the music video accompaniment for “Our Deal” is a deal breaker for her talent as a director.
This is not the first time the filmmaker’s worked with West, directing the 2009 short film We Were Once A Fairytale, it stuck a cord with many hip-hop fans.
If you hadn’t noticed, Explosions is similar to an orchestra, slowly building its element of sounds layering on top of each other to create a symphony of guitars, bass, drums, strings, and horns that make for a complex listen. That’s why this new music video of theirs is amazing, it’s a perfect environment for them to show off trippy visuals and overwhelm their audience in sight and sound
