Jaden Smith pines for a Coachella girl in 'Blue Ocean' music video

There’s nothing like unrequited Coachella love that really sets off that button of teenage angst.

Jaden Smith compiled all that wisdom seen in his amusing Twitter feed and put it together in the lyrics for his angsty music video for “Blue Ocean,” which borrows the melody from Justin Timberlake’s “Blue Ocean Floor.” The video, directed by friend Moises Arias, features Smith hanging with his rat pack of L.A. cohorts, including rumored on-again, off-again girlfriend, fling, whatever, Kylie Jenner, as Smith emotes heavily on a girl who he met at Coachella.

TOPS share 'Way To Be Loved' video, and a playlist to chill out to

tops

TOPS, a four-piece band from Montreal made up of equal parts guys and gals, has released the video for “Way To Be Loved,” off their sophomore LP, Picture You Staring (out today). 

Picture You Staring is an intimate affair — in the way it was made as much as the way it feels. Written, recorded, and produced over the course of 12 isolated months in Arbutus Records’ Montreal studio, it has a sound that’s simple, nuanced, and deeply personal. It’s as easy to get lost in your own thoughts as in theirs — or are they one and the same?

When asked about the video, the band says, “The video was inspired by the party scene in Midnight Cowboy and the movie Nowhere by Gregg Araki. We dolled up our place, provided refreshments and tunes. Our friends came with bells on and did their thing, it felt like a low-budget swingers wedding. Message: Be who you are and love one another.”

Pharrell and Miley Cyrus team up for puzzling 'Come Get It Bae' video

Pharrell’s new video for “Come Get It Bae” brings up a lot of questions: Why does the video start out by stating “beauty has no expiration date,” only for the multiple dancers in the video to all look to be in their thirties or younger? Why is Pharrell filming the dancers? Shouldn’t he be singing?

Earlier this week, Katy Perry released a preview video for the music video in which she dressed up as a variety of party entertainers, ranging from an Instagramming, gum-snapping princess to a drinky clown to a possibly kind of offensive Jewish comedian.

According to the video’s intro, Perry actually attended five different birthday parties as these characters without revealing her identity. Watch the Many Party Faces of Perry, below:

'Glee' actress Dianna Agron channels her inner frontman in The Killers' 'Just Another Girl' music video

Diana-Agron-Killers.jpg

The Killers have a new video for their single “Just Another Girl” starring Glee alum Dianna Agron, and it’s essentially a trip down memory lane, filled with the quintessential desert landscapes, bright neon lights, and swanky saloons that fans of the Sin City rockers have come to associate with them.

Agron does her best Brandon Flowers throughout — walking through different scenes rocking various iconic looks Flowers has worn in the past; she even sticks on an impressive looking mustache during one point.

Watch it below:

Watch Drake's 'Worst Behavior' video, featuring cameos by his dad, Juicy J, and more

Drake may be the greatest rapper alive. Perhaps he’s also the hardest working man in show business. And when it comes to making music videos, he’s Johnny on the spot: Always ready with ideas—some great, others head-scratching, and many of them pretty damn funny.

For “Worst Behavior,” a monster of a song, he has made a sprawling 10-minute video. He calls in—or grants—a bunch of favors, creating cameos for his dad, Dennis Graham, and Juicy J and Project Pat, who feature opposite OVO crew members Ryan and O’Brien a skit that’s certainly hilarious enough to watch once: READ FULL STORY

Riley Keough takes out Justin Timberlake in 'TKO' video -- WATCH

Have you ever wanted to spend seven minutes watching Elvis Presley’s granddaughter alternately drag Justin Timberlake through a desert and make out with him in her kitchen?

Then today is your day, my friend! Timberlake’s new ‘TKO’ music video bypasses the easy boxing theme for a moody, predictably sexy treatment from “skateboarder turned visual effects artist turned director” Ryan Reichenfeld. The hitmaker shares his screen with just one other person: 24-year-old Riley Keough, of Magic Mike (and, you know, “being Elvis’s granddaughter”) fame.

She pouts, she smolders behind the wheel of a pickup truck, she angrily tosses a bowl of salad to the ground — but thankfully, she doesn’t literally kill Timberlake with her “coo coochie coochie coo,” despite Timbaland’s protestations to the contrary.

Watch the clip below, then tell me if you agree that Reichenfeld’s kitchen tableau seems to be inspired by this 2002 Harlequin Blaze novel. Uh, not that I’ve read that book or anything.

Kelly Clarkson is the ultimate wedding singer in new 'Tie It Up' video

kelly-clarkson-tie-it-up.jpg

In a knock-down, drag-out, musical battle royale between Katy Perry and Lady Gaga, who would win?

The answer, obviously, is Kelly Clarkson.

Okay, so maybe Kelly’s wedding reception-ready single “Tie It Up” isn’t going to generate sales as huge as “Roar” or “Applause.” But all the same, the song is bouncy, twangy, and earwormy enough to guarantee a place of honor at plenty of upcoming marriage celebrations. And its cute new video, which splices footage of wedding singer Kelly — flashing her own gorgeous engagement ring — with clips of normal people’s nuptials, is pure feel-good fun. (Yes, a few gay couples get featured; yes, in a perfect world, this wouldn’t be unusual enough to earn a special mention.)
