Justin Bieber’s Deposition Video: Watch Four+ Hours Of Hell Condensed Into Six Minutes Of Torture

To be honest, it’s probably getting just as confusing for Justin Bieber to keep track of all the legal troubles he currently has as it is for us. And so when TMZ leaked video clips of Bieber’s May 6th deposition in Miami, we kind of had to ask, “Deposition for what, exactly?” The neighbor-egging incident? The limo driver thing? The DUI drag racing drama? Oh, right — that trash where JB’s bodyguard beat down some paparazzi.

During the four-and-a-half hours Justin was deposed in Florida, he was asked by photographer Jeffrey Binion‘s lawyer, as you’ll see in the above, condensed video, about dating Selena Gomez (Bieber’s response: “Don’t ask me about her.”), whether he knows Usher (“Usher…that sounds familiar.”) and if he remembers ever being in Australia (“I don’t know if I’ve been to Australia. Have I been to Australia?”). More »

Rick Ross has premiered the video for Mastermind standout “War Ready,” his collab with former nemesis Jeezy and ominous production from Mike WiLL Made It. It’s a pretty straightforward visual, with Rozay and Jeezy mean-mugging into the camera spliced with scenes of masked goons looking like 300 villains pillaging a warehouse. (And Tracy T pretty much steals the show after not even being listed as a feature on the official tracklist.)

There’s lots of machine gun fire, but amidst all the spent rounds, of course Ross is rocking a plush fur coat, which is not at all a war ready look. Check it out up top. More »

Kodaline Performed Heart-Wrenching Ballad “All I Want” On ‘American Idol’: Watch

Mar 7th, 2014 // Comment
Get Your Lighter Ready!

Irish rockers Kodaline won a huge international following with debut LP In A Perfect World, so it was almost inevitable that the US would also fell under their spell. The four-piece band dropped by American Idol last night (March 6) to perform new single “All I Want” and were typically spectacular.

These guys are so tight. Steve Garrigan‘s vocal is a thing of beauty and their musicianship is beyond repute. It looks like American Idol viewers were just as impress. After Kodaline’s epic performance their album shot to number 16 on iTunes and “All I Want” — a tale of heartbreak and loss — rocketed into the top 100. Watch up top. More »

Ariana Grande shared the stage with vocal heavyweights Jill Scott, Patti LaBelle, Janelle Monae and Melissa Etheridge as well as The Voice winner Tessanne Chin at last night’s (March 6) Women Of Soul: In Performance At The White House concert, which was hosted by President Obama and the First Lady.

The 20-year-old looked understandably nervous but delivered a competent if unspectacular version of Whitney Houston‘s classic ballad “I Have Nothing”. She sounded much more at home performing Yours Truly bop “Tattooed Heart” and later joined the other ladies for an entertaining rendition of Tina Turner‘s iconic jam “Proud Mary”.

Jennifer Lopez dropped by Big Boy‘s radio show on Power 106 this morning (March 7) to chat about her new album. The ageless diva spoke to the DJ revealed that music became her main priority again after completing her first world tour in 2013. The 44-year-old stunner has been cooking up fresh tunes ever since.

J.Lo admitted that it’s been a long process but she wanted to take her time. It turns out the “I Luh Ya Papi” diva is a taking an ‘organic’ approach to this LP — hence the initially somewhat confusing buzz singles “Girls” and “Same Girl”. As for the latter, Jenny opened up about filming the video with some friends and her strong connection to the Bronx. Watch up top. More »

The internet is truly a wonderful thing. I have no idea how someone got their hands on a video of Beyonce‘s Grammy rehearsal but I’m grateful it mysteriously surfaced online overnight because her warm-up is ridiculously entertaining. Not only do you get to watch Queen Bey perform a typically ***flawless rendition of “Drunk In Love” but there’s a also cameo from Jay Z ’s stand-in and Blue Ivy.

After meticulously working her way through the song (sexy chair choreography and all), the game-changing diva is joined on stage by faux Hov to finish the song. The highlight comes in the last minute when Bey reaches her now iconic ‘serfbort’ refrain and Blue Ivy sings along over the loud speaker. The look on Beyonce’s face when her daughter says “hi mommy” is priceless. Watch up top. More »

Sophie Ellis-Bextor’s “Runaway Daydreamer” Video Finds The Singer Looking More Beautiful Than Ever

It’s been a true pleasure seeing Sophie Ellis-Bextor have another hit album in the UK with Wanderlust, as previous efforts like Make A Scene and Trip The Light Fantastic were woefully overlooked by the music-buying public at large. And the charming, string-laden “Runaway Daydreamer” makes for an excellent choice for follow-up single to slow ballad “Young Blood.”

The “Runaway Daydreamer” video, however, doesn’t offer much more than what we already saw in the Wanderlust trailer clip last fall. In fact, some of the camera work, particularly during the final minute, seems a bit jarring and amateurish — though whether that’s on purpose or not is anyone’s guess. More »

Zhala’s “Prophet” Lyric Video: Watch The Bizarre Clip From Robyn’s Protege

Last month, Robyn and about a dozen dancers/extras stepped onto the stage with Zhala at the Swedish Grammis Awards ceremony and gave a performance of the latter’s Konichiwa Records single “Prophet.” All in all, it played out like somewhat of a reenactment of Nirvana‘s seminal visual for “Smells Like Teen Spirit.” Now comes the lyric video for the song, which is no less of an eyebrow-raiser, and is as bizarre as the tempo-changing dance song itself.

In the clip, a hand (Zhala’s?) holding flowers that, quite frankly, look at times like filleted body organs waves back and forth to the beat, threatening to put the viewer in a hypnotized state. That’s about all that happens. The real bonus is getting to see the actual lyrics, because who knew she was actually singing things like “immovable dance all night” and “I am the confuser now”? Certainly not I. More »

Pharrell, Future & Pusha T Chill In “Move That Dope” Video: Watch

Push It

Future has premiered the video for “Move That Dope,” his ice cold Honest track featuring Pharrell and Pusha T, with production from Mike WiLL Made It.

The visual, directed by Benny Boom, features the trio chilling out in a jeep, intercut with a police chase and some I Am Other branding for Pharrell. There are also cameos from Mike Will, Tyler, The Creator, Wiz Khalifa, Schoolboy Q and a Zack Morris cell phone. One person who didn’t make the cut, though, is Casino, who had a verse on the original version of the track but was excised from the video.

Awesome Electro-Pop Alert! Oh, Be Clever Impress With “Next To You”: Watch The Video

Press Play And Feel Alive

Here’s an unexpectedly great shot of electro-pop from Salt Lake City, Utah! Newcomers Oh, Be Clever — a duo consisting of vocalist Brittney Shields and music man Cory Scott Layton — impress with infectious new single “Next To You”, which sounds like a cross between La Roux and Phantogram. (Not exactly a bad thing).

The synth-splattered, ’80s-referencing anthem was born when the pair went through brutal break-ups at the same time. ”[It was] the kind of breakup that makes you question your sanity at all hours of everyday,” explains Brittney. “I had to constantly see pictures of him and his new girlfriend all over social media, and it KILLED me inside.” Been there.
