Here’s a classy way to pass the time on your Friday afternoon. Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett have released some rehearsal footage from their Cirque Royal performance and it’s fascinating stuff. Mother Monster, who rocks a Cleopatra-evoking black bob and golden robe, belts out Cheek To Cheek international bonus track “Bewitched, Bothered And Bewildered”, while her duet partner watches on.
The ARTPOP diva gives it her all in the mesmerizing solo performance, belting out the 1940s show tune in fine style. It’s surprising this was left off the US edition because it it really is lovely. (That probably had something to do with Rod Stewart and Cher covering it semi-recently on the rocker’s Great American Songbook 2 album). If you haven’t had the chance to check out Gaga’s version yet, make sure to watch it up top. More »
Nick Jonas is nothing if not a good sport. The “Jealous” hitmaker, who almost broke the internet when his Mark Wahlberg-inspired Flaunt underwear shoot surfaced online, was asked to play ‘guess the bulge’ during a recent interview with Sugarscape and accepted the challenge. Footage of the heartthrob evaluating Justin Bieber‘s package (among others) is now here!
The first cab/crotch off the rank is Nick’s own and he recognizes it (thankfully). He has less luck with Liam Payne and Harry Styles but easily picks out Justin Bieber (“this looks ridiculous… only one person in the world can look that ridiculous”). He also notes that Zac Efron is wearing nude underwear and talks about showing his butt on Kingdom. Watch up top. More »
Kiesza shows off her rock-hard dancer’s body in her video for “No Enemiesz,” the latest track from her debut album Sound Of A Woman. The flame-haired songstress takes notes from Janet Jackson‘s 1986 hit “The Pleasure Principle” visual, transforming an empty loft into her personal dance studio.
The video is all about choreography, where Kiesza dances alone in a mirror and with other members of her crew. But the most interesting parts occur when the singer strips off her clothes piece by piece. As each clothing item falls to the floor, it transforms into a live dancer — it’s a cool technique!
Sound of a Woman was released on October 21, and features songs like “Giant In My Heart,” “Losin’ My Mind” and “The Love.” More »
Countless teaser clips and photos have been leading up to today’s big moment for One Direction fans: the arrival of the music video for “Steal My Girl,” the lead single off the boy band’s upcoming LP Four. So was it all worth the wait? Let’s see what we have here…
Things kick off with the five guys on the desert-based set of the video shoot. (Looks like the much-filmed Vasquez Rocks, just outside of L.A., to us.) Then comes the startling arrival of the quirky “greatest artist of his generation,” played by Danny DeVito. He ominously informs the worried lads, “I’ve seen your work. Today we’re gonna take it to a new level.” Uh oh. More »
WALK THE MOON have a hit on their hands with infectious pop/rock anthem “Shut Up And Dance”. The first taste of the band’s sophomore set is steadily gaining ground on radio and hovering just outside the top 100 on iTunes. A blockbuster video is all the Cincinnati-based rockers need to take things to the next level and they well and truly delivered.
The guys take it back to the ’80s in their hilarious “Shut Up And Dance” visual, which finds lead singer Nicholas Petricca burning up the disco in a particularly fetching outfit. He soon lays eyes on the woman of his dreams things soon get really weird thanks to a serious case of dance floor concussion. Enjoy the retro fashion, graphics and audio equipment (love a good boombox!) up top. More »
Tamar Braxton is coming out of the gate swinging with her Aaliyah-sampling, Future-featuring “Let Me Know,” a dreamy R&B ode to her man, and the lead single from her forthcoming follow-up to 2013′s Love & War.
And to show just how much love she’s got, Tamar’s gone ahead and turned up the heat with about a half dozen glamorous looks for the accompanying visual. From bedside seduction to poolside dramatics on a diving board to lounging in fishnets and lingerie, the Braxton Family Values diva certainly knows how to seduce in a variety of lewks — and sparkle, of course. Just wait until she gets to the eye-popping all-glitter “ensemble”!
You’ve got to give it up for Tamar: It’s going to take her at least a few weeks just to wash off all that glitter. Do you love it? Do you feel it? Let her (and us) know in the comments below. More »
Kiesza follows up her breakout single “Hideaway” with her latest offering, “No Enemiesz.” The song, off the chanteuse’s debut LP Sound Of A Woman, now has an accompanying lyric video. The clip has a total throwback vibe, complete with a fuzzy camera filter straight from 1992 and the verses written on birthday cakes, magazines, iPhones and more. Dimly-lit shots of people at an underground basement party are also interwoven throughout.
Watch the lyric video up top, and look out for the official visual tomorrow (October 24). Sound Of A Woman was officially released on October 21 via Island Records. More »
Chvrches go on a psychedelic trip in their latest video for “Under The Tide.” The visual, directed by Sing J. Lee, combines Japanese anime with fuzzy space effects that takes the viewer on a wild journey. Martin Doherty takes the lead role, performing the track in between the animated clips. The song is a year old, but the Scottish synth-pop trio reworked it earlier this month that made for a refreshing listen.
“Under The Tide” comes from Chvrches’ awesome debut LP The Bones of What You Believe (released in September 2013). The band will also appear on the Lorde-curated Hunger Games: Mockinjay Pt. 1 soundtrack, which will be available on November 18. More »
Mary J. Blige‘s “Right Now” tune is so good, that the singer released not one — but two videos for it! The first came in a form of a black + white clip earlier this month, which highlighted the budding friendship between the R&B diva and Disclosure (the song’s producers).
The second premiered today (October 23), and it finds Blige strutting through the streets of London and performing at an underground club. “Right Now” is off the singer’s forthcoming thirteenth studio LP, The London Sessions (out on December 2). It features collaborations from artists like Sam Smith, Emeli Sandé and Naughty Boy. More »
Remember when the young queens of Fifth Harmony teamed up with Mattel to create a Barbie anthem called “Anything Is Possible”? Whether you’ve blocked the memory out of your head or have been happily bopping to the kid-friendly tune for months, the accompanying video has arrived — and it’s really something.
The über-perky, super colorful visual sees the BO$$ES going totally Barbie (even briefly turning into Barbie dolls!), crooning their female empowerment anthem while little girls dance around them and dream big: Olympians! Superheroes! Pop stars! Astronauts!
It’s undoubtedly the cheesiest thing the 5H ladies have ever participated in, but hey, it’s meant to inspire the next generation to dream big. Anything is possible, after all. More »
