Miranda Lambert And Carrie Underwood Run Wild In Their Epic “Somethin’ Bad” Video: Watch

Move Over, Thelma & Louise!
Miranda Lambert and Carrie Underwood gleefully ditch their girl-next-door personas in the duo’s wonderfully wicked “Somethin’ Bad” video. After teasing the ladies-on-the-lam themed extravaganza in an Instagram post yesterday, I thought I knew what to expect — heavy drinking and card games that end in a mugshot —but I was way, way off.

The blond bombshells put Thelma & Louise to shame with their hijinks, which include stealing jewels from a bank and exploding a building. If this were real life they would be the most-wanted babes in America! My favorite moment is when Miranda and Carrie pose next to their motorcycles with their big hair and body-hugging leather ensembles. Bad never looked so good. Watch up top. More »

Miranda Lambert And Carrie Underwood Tease Their Role-Reversing “Somethin’ Bad” Video: Watch

Move over, Thelma & Louise. Miranda Lambert and Carrie Underwood find themselves on the wrong side of the law in their much-anticipated “Somethin’ Bad” video and show their movie counterparts a thing or two about how country girls handle life on the lam. The campy visual hasn’t even premiered in full but it’s already exceeded all my expectations!

Miranda teased the video on her Instagram today (June 24) and it finds the usually refined divas (hell, Carrie even released a song called “Good Girl”) indulging in all kinds of bad behavior. The blond bombshells gamble, drink heavily and eventually find themselves arrested. (Their faux mugshot is the best thing I’ve seen all week). Watch the clip after the jump. More »

Miranda Lambert’s ‘Platinum’ Bumps Coldplay Off The Top Of The Album Chart

Miranda Lambert kicks some excitement into the upper reaches of the Billboard 200 this week — and unseats Coldplay‘s Ghost Stories from the top spot in the process — by debuting at #1 with her fifth album Platinum. The LP, which was preceded by the single “Automatic,” sold 179,000 copies in its first week. Coldplay, in the meantime, fall four spots to #5 after moving another 46,000 copies of Ghost Stories. (That brings the British band’s latest up to a total of 512,000 sold in three weeks.)

Other activity within the Top 10 this week: 50 Cent goes in at #4 with fifth LP Animal Ambition (47,000), while the reissued versions of Led Zeppelin‘s Led Zeppelin, Led Zeppelin II and Led Zeppelin III re-enter the main album chart at #7, #9 and #10, respectively. Also, the Frozen soundtrack moves back up to #2, while the Fault In Our Stars soundtrack, which contains tracks like Ed Sheeran‘s “All Of The Stars” and Charli XCX‘s “Boom Clap,” hops 10 positions to #8 following the film’s $48 million opening over the weekend.

See how the rest of the Top 10 played out below. More »

Colbie Caillat’s “Try” Lyric Video: Watch Her Go Makeup-Free With Sara Bareilles & Others

Colbie Caillat Try lyric video
Just Plain Lovely
Yesterday, Colbie Caillat surprised fans by pulling a small-scale Beyonce and releasing Gypsy Heart Side A, a five-track EP that is to precede the singer-songwriter’s full-length Gypsy Heart album (due out later this year). The Babyface-produced “Try” serves as a single for this particular appetizer of Caillat’s.

“We did four or five songs. I love him as a producer and writer,” Caillat told Idolator a few months back while discussing her work with Babyface. “I just tell him any style that I’m in the mood for and we write it. It’s not like he’s pigeonholed in being an R&B producer.”

The lyric video for “Try” features Caillat, her fans and other famous faces — like Sheryl Crow, Miranda Lambert, Kelly Osbourne, Sara Bareilles, Lady Antebellum‘s Hillary Scott, Natasha Bedingfield, Christina Perri and Jessie J — going sans makeup in an effort to spread the message that beauty truly is on the inside.

2014 CMT Awards: Carrie Underwood Wins Video Of The Year, John Legend & Jason Derulo Go Country

Somethin' Bad (But So Good)
Carrie Underwood won the fan-voted Video of the Year at the 2014 CMT Awards, for the third year in a row. “It’s really hard to believe that I have been doing this for nine years, but every single second of those nine years, you guys have been so amazing,” she said, while accepting the award for “See You Again.” Underwood seemed in shock, though to those watching, her win seemed like a no-brainer compared to the night’s crossover moments.

This year’s awards show kicked off with heads nodding to ZZ Top performing its 1973 hit (and signature song) “LaGrange,” only for Florida Georgia Line to crash in for “This Is How We Roll” and Luke Bryan to introduce Jason Derulo, so that everyone on stage could chime in and wiggle their hips to his smash “Talk Dirty.” (Trust – the sight is one of the more strangely delightful things you’ll see today.) Later, Jennifer Nettles and John Legend teamed up to perform his No. 1 hit “All of Me,” while backed on acoustic guitar by Hunter Hayes. And to close, Miranda Lambert and Underwood performed their fierce country-pop duet “Somethin’ Bad,” off Lambert’s new album Platinum.
