Lea Michele's 'Cannonball' video: 'Glee' star finds her way through the dark -- VIDEO

Lea Michele fittingly takes center stage in the music video for the first single, “Cannonball,” which premiered on Vevo this afternoon.

The video features lots of pretty close-ups of a vulnerable looking Lea singing in a rundown room with a broken piano. Sun streaks through the windows as  the Glee star, dressed in a flowing black dress, slowly finds her strength as the song crescendos.

Beyonce gets down with grills and girls in new 'Yonce' video -- WATCH

Still haven’t gone to the trouble of downloading Beyoncé, the star’s self-titled surprise visual album? (Who could blame you — all that clicking!) If so, you’re in luck — because its super sexy “Yoncé” video is now available for free online.

Who, exactly, is Yoncé? Just consider her a fiercer Sasha Fierce — tricked out with grills, a belly ring, and outfits like a bondage-inspired orange bathing suit. She’s also pals with supermodels Jourdan Dunn, Joan Smalls, and Chanel Iman.

“I wanted to do something sexy and provocative, but not so overt,” video director Ricky Saiz told New York Magazine shortly after Beyoncé’s release. “I feel like the Mileys and the Rihannas have that covered and this was more sophisticated. There are a lot of references to nineties eroticism and Madonna videos. We shot it against one wall for the most part, so I was looking a lot of Carlo Molino photos. I feel like they are some of the sexiest photographs ever taken of women. They are so simple and voyeuristic and raw.”

Eminem gets therapy from Rihanna in 'The Monster' video: Watch it here

The-Monster.jpg

If this whole pop star thing doesn’t work out for Rihanna, she certainly has a future as a terrifying psychiatrist.

RiRi serves as Eminem’s unusual shrink in the new video for “The Monster,” the fourth single from Em’s phenomenally successful The Marshall Mathers LP 2. In the clip, which was directed by frequent Eminem collaborator Rich Lee (he also helmed “Rap God,” “Not Afraid,” and “Lighters”), Slim Shady sits on a couch while Rihanna watches him watch clips of old music videos and news footage, including his Grammy performance with Elton John.

Then Em splits off and finds himself trapped in an elevator, forced to observe his image from his very first music video for “My Name Is” (complete with 15-year-old Dr. Dre cameo). He also observes himself in the “Lose Yourself” clip, his computer-generated freefall in “The Way I Am,” and finally some sort of post-apocalyptic wasteland where he finds yet another version of himself locked in a cage.

It’s a pretty compelling clip and a fun trip through Em’s video past. Check out “The Monster” below.  READ FULL STORY

Robin Thicke leaves the dancing to the pros in 'Feel Good' video: Watch it here

Robin-Thicke.jpg

Robin Thicke will forever have a hard time making music videos, if only because his clip for “Blurred Lines” became so iconic (and was so full of breasts).

Still, he really gives it a go in “Feel Good,” for the latest single from his album Blurred Lines. Once again, Thicke still invites along a group of ladies, though unlike the “Blurred Lines” gals, these women are tastefully dressed in Vegas showgirl costumes (not to be confused with Showgirls costumes). Really, it’s like the old school Sin City version of the Radio City Christmas show — if Dean Martin dreamed up a stage review and set it to a pulsating whisper track.

So yeah there’s no bare boobs, but there are some pretty colors and some top-shelf dancing. Give “Feel Good” a look below.  READ FULL STORY

Beyonce's brand new album -- stream samples of all the songs and videos here

beyonce-visual-album.jpg

Ah, what innocents we were—going to sleep last night in a world with only four Beyoncé studio albums, and waking up to the bizzonkers news blitz that is her self-titled no. 5. (Read Nick Catucci’s review here.)

“I see music,” Beyoncé said in a statement about the many videos that accompany the album. “It’s more than just what I hear. When I’m connected to something, I immediately see a visual or a series of images that are tied to a feeling or an emotion, a memory from my childhood, thoughts about life, my dreams or my fantasies. And they’re all connected to the music.”

She also talked about the irregular nature of Beyoncé‘s sudden release. “I didn’t want to release my music the way I’ve done it,” she said. “I am bored with that. I feel like I am able to speak directly to my fans. There’s so much that gets between the music, the artist and the fans. I felt like I didn’t want anybody to give the message when my record is coming out. I just want this to come out when it’s ready and from me to my fans.”

EW’s music critic Nick Catucci is hard at work in his music-critic terrarium, prepping a full review of the album which will be up on EW.com this afternoon. (Update: Here’s the review!) In the meantime, though, you can take a look at the full run of the album’s video snippets (there are visual clips for each of Beyonce‘s 14 tracks, plus three bonuses), and draw your own conclusions:

The biggest videos on YouTube this year

PSY.jpg

Oh Psy, you scamp — running the table two years in a row.

South Korea’s pony-danciest pop import had another bang-up year in video pageviews, following last year’s no. 1 “Gangam Style” with “Gentleman” in 2013. But Miley Cyrus, bless her, came close to wrecking him — and still beat him in total views.

Also on the list? The usual suspects: Katy, Rihanna, “Blurred Line” boobs, and more.

Julian Casablancas, freaky museum star in Daft Punk's 'Instant Crush' video

What happens at the museum after it closes for the night? According to Daft Punk and Julian Casablancas’ new “Instant Crush” video, some freaky ish.

Unlike the after-hours goings-on decpicted in The Royal Tenenbaums or Night at the Museum, this video involves cool shark-embroidered leather jackets, melting wax lovers, and a creepy conflagration.

And, notably, no Hedi Slimane-suited robots appear; the load falls on Strokes singer Casablancas, dressed like a downtown punk tramp.

Watch it all go down in the video below:

Lauryn Hill gives 'Consumerism' the lyric video treatment: Watch it here

“Consumerism” has been kicking around since Lauryn Hill emerged from a brief stint in jail for failure to pay taxes just over two months ago, and now the song it has been given the lyric video treatment. (It’s on Vimeo, which Hill probably uses because she considers it “off the grid.”)

The clip is just as manic as the word salad that makes up the track. Look closely and you’ll spot images from the news, cartoons, hygiene films, and a note that “80% of the world’s supplies sit beneath the Democratic Republic of Congo,” which could probably use some clarification or a fact check.

Take a deep breath, get hydrated, and check out the rapid-fire lyric clip for “Consumerism” below: READ FULL STORY

Lorde rules a city of her own in 'Team' video: Watch it here

LORDE.jpg

Lorde’s “Royals” is indisputably one of the biggest and best songs of the year — but if it has a shortcoming, it’s that its video is a pretty low-fi affair.

Such is not the case for the clip for Lorde’s latest single “Team,” which just arrived this afternoon. It’s not bombastic by any stretch, but it does place Lorde and her band of teenage friends in the same beautiful ruins she sings about in the track’s chorus.

She took to Facebook to explain her vision behind “Team.”:
“This video was borne from a dream I had a few months ago about teenagers in their own world, a world with hierarchies and initiations, where the boy who was second in command had acne on his face, and so did the girl who was Queen,” she writes. “I dreamt about this world being so different to anything anyone had ever seen, a dark world full of tropical plants and ruins and sweat. And of this world, I dreamt about tests that didn’t need to be passed in order to be allowed in: sometimes the person who loses is stronger. Enjoy.”

What have we learned? That Lorde has way better dreams than you do. Check out what her subconscious delivered to her below: READ FULL STORY

DJ Earworm's 'United State of Pop 2013' has arrived: Watch it here

Wish you could watch the entire American Music Awards’ talent roster in five minutes’ time? DJ Earworm’s on the case.

As is his annual tradition, the California-based mashup artist has released the 2013 edition of his “United State of Pop” series, which deftly blend a cross-section of the year’s biggest pop songs into one big, somewhat-cohesive über-banger.

It’s basically the music equivalent of a Long Island Iced Tea, and this year’s video gets you drunk on a heady mix of Katy Perry, Lorde, Imagine Dragons, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, Justin Timberlake, and so, so many more.
