Taylor Momsen wears nothing but eyeliner in new Pretty Reckless video: Watch the NSFW clip here

Ready to start your week with a shock video?

Gossip Girl vet Taylor Momsen shows up in a new video from the Pretty Reckless, Momsen’s rock band. The gimmicks are plenty: the clip’s in black and white, there’s no music (it’s a spoken-word verse taken from her band’s “Under the Water”), and, well, she’s naked the whole time.

Yep, naked — except for a pound of eye makeup. Needless to say, this one’s NSFW, so if you’re at the office and just really want to know more about the lyrical passage in the video, skip the following clip and head straight to the words, pasted below:

Coldplay's 'Hurts Like Heaven' video brings their comic to life -- VIDEO

The music video for Coldplay’s “Hurts Like Heaven” is a prequel to their planned six-part comic-book series, which shares the title of their album Mylo Xyloto, and plays out as the book’s pages are turned. The video depicts a social uprising: A group of superheroes challenges the leader Major Minus and flees from the militaristic police. They’re ultimately caught, but a glimmer of hope survives.

Although I prefer my Coldplay videos with elephants instead of superheroes, the clip’s Orwellian themes and underlying message about the importance of creativity and self-expression make it a win in my book. Even if you had never heard about their comic book, which will be published monthly beginning in February, the video complements the song’s up-beat music and lyrics perfectly, especially the colorful love story.

Taylor Swift drops new single 'I Knew You Were Trouble': Hear it here

taylor-swift-trouble.jpg

“Ready to hear more about my romantic misadventures????”

That’s the teaser Taylor Swift tweeted yesterday in anticipation of the newest cut off of Red, “I Knew You Were Trouble.”

The song, which Swift previewed on Good Morning America yesterday morning, has the same kind of defiant pop-radio oomph that made her fourth album’s other big breakup banger, “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” a number one.

But “Trouble” comes with an added twist: a smattering of dubstep, discernible each time the song’s chorus kicks in, an element that we’d been warned Red would contain.

Take a listen to the new track in the video below:

Kenny Rogers chats with Stephen Colbert, reveals secrets about Dolly Parton and Charles Barkley in new memoir

Last night on The Colbert Report, country legend Kenny Rogers sat down to discuss his new memoir Luck or Something Like It. At the top of the interview, Colbert ran down Rogers’ resume as a recording artist, and it’s easy to forget how massively successful the guy has been for as long as he has: 120 million albums sold worldwide, a hit in each of the last six decades, and a ranking as the eighth-best-selling male vocal artist of all time (just behind Springsteen, and just in front of Neil Diamond).

Of course, Rogers is an exquisite storyteller, able to get across a range of ideas and emotions in songs like “Lucille” and “The Gambler.” That breezy, conversational tone comes across on the page as well as in conversation with Colbert, which you can check out here.

Here are five other delightful revelations from Luck or Something Like It. READ FULL STORY

Axl Rose will have his first live interview in two decades on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!'

Back in the summer of 1999, alternative rock bible Spin published a cover story called “What the World Needs Now Is Axl Rose” — even though he hadn’t produced but a single song in over five years (the awful “Oh My God,” which appeared on the soundtrack to the Schwarzenegger vs. Satan movie End of Days).

All these years and one seriously anticlimactic Chinese Democracy later, the elusive, unpredictable Axl still fascinates. He’s kept fans and the media at arm’s length by giving hardly any print interviews, let alone televised ones. But that all is going to change on October 24, when heappears on Jimmy Kimmel Live! for his first live broadcast interview in more than two decades.

Rose will go on the show to chat with Kimmel primarily about his band’s upcoming 12-night Appetite for Democracy run at Las Vegas’ Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. Hopefully he’ll also discuss his addiction to tardiness, his mysterious hairline, and whether or not the tracks he supposedly recorded with Shaquille O’Neal at some point in the ’90s will ever see the light of day.

It’s telling that, upon hearing this news, one EW staffer immediately quipped, “What are the odds he actually shows up?” READ FULL STORY

Rick Ross and Young Jeezy involved in brawl at BET Hip-Hop Awards

Saturday night’s taping of the BET Hip-Hop Awards (not to be confused with the BET Awards, which aired two months ago) went from sentimental to chaotic in an instant. A heartfelt tribute to late hip-hop impresario Chris Lighty transitioned into an ugly brawl between entourages representing rappers Rick Ross and Young Jeezy.

Late Saturday night, a conflict erupted between Ross and Jeezy backstage at the Atlanta Civic Center. “Jeezy and Rick Ross just had words backstage!! Pushing and shoving,” tweeted legendary New York DJ Funkmaster Flex following the initial incident.

According to a police report obtained by TMZ, the conflict continued into the parking lot of the Civic Center, and police were called. The Atlanta cops dispersed the crowd using pepper spray, and no arrests were made. READ FULL STORY
