Watch Katy Perry play a neon Egyptian pharaoh in her 'Dark Horse' video

Hey, kids cramming for your history exams: You can just watch a music video instead!

Katy Perry’s got a new clip for the no. 1 single “Dark Horse,” and it all goes down in a candy-colored Ancient Egypt full of bright headdresses, pierced cats, and neon pyramids.

So if Katy Perry is Cleopatra, is Juicy J her Mark Antony? Hmm, let’s go with that.

Pussy Riot release Putin-bashing music video shot at Olympics

While the world’s attention is focused on Russia for the Olympics, protest collective/punk band/righteous agitators Pussy Riot are grabbing headlines again — this time for a music video that includes footage of the group being publicly beaten by the Russian militia.

“Putin Will Teach You How To Love” features the members of the group, in their trademark colorful balaclavas, storming through the streets of Sochi, dancing in front of the Olympic rings, interacting with a weird looking mascot, and getting pummeled by Russian militia forces. The protesters include Nadezhda Tolokonnikova and Maria Alyokhina, both of whom were recently released from a Russian prison.

“Under the banner Sochi 2014, to the sound of ‘Putin will teach us to love the homeland,’ Cossacks attacked Pussy Riot, beat us with whips and sprayed a lot of pepper gas at us,” Tolokonnikova tweeted.

Check out their good old-fashioned punk rock anarchy below.  READ FULL STORY

Nicki Minaj vs. Mariah Carey, round 253: Which video do you prefer?

Nicki-Minaj.jpg

Even though they no longer share a judges’ table on American Idol, that doesn’t mean Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey can’t still go head to head.

Yesterday, both ladies unveiled brand new videos. Minaj pulled back the curtain on the clip for her new single “Lookin Ass N—a,” which puts her in the middle of the desert in stark black and white and gives her a machine gun (until the end, when she gets a second machine gun). It’s not especially subtle, but it does get her point across. Give it a watch below: READ FULL STORY

U2's new 'Invisible' video brings on the light show, big round microphones: Watch it here

Invisible.jpg

If this was 1994 and U2 were still in their crazy art project phase, the video for “Invisible” would probably be a series of shots of an empty stage, or just a static four minutes of darkness. Because, you see, it’d be invisible.

Thankfully, the video for the band’s new single is not that literal. In stately black and white, the band cranks out their latest with the aid of some impressive backlight effects (good thing Bono wears those sunglasses!) and a wacky circular microphone that hangs from the ceiling. Like most 21st-century U2 projects, it’s well executed without being blow-away impressive, though “Invisible” continues to improve as a song with each subsequent listen.

Ingrid Michaelson plays her own Robert Palmer in new 'Girls Chase Boys' video - EXCLUSIVE PREMIERE

Ingrid-Michaelson.jpg

Singer-songwriter Ingrid Michaelson famously channeled a handful of classic rock stars  — including John Lennon, David Bowie, and Gene Simmons — in her 2012 clip for “Blood Brothers.” Now, for her new single “Girls Chase Boys,” she’s tipping her Patrick Nagel-painted hat to Robert Palmer.

The track is the first single from Michaelson’s brand new album Lights Out, due April 15. It’s a darker, more complicated side of the singer, she told EW: “‘Girls Chase Boys’ started out as a break up song but took on a deeper meaning as I continued writing. More than just being about my experience, its focus shifted to include the idea that, no matter who or how we love, we are all the same. The video takes that idea one step further, and attempts to turn stereotypical gender roles on their head. Girls don’t exclusively chase boys. We all know this. We all chase each other and in the end we are all chasing after the same thing: love.”

The clip is a gender-tweaking homage to Palmer’s  1988 video for “Simply Irresistible,” one of the more iconic clips of the decade. Check it out below: READ FULL STORY

Watch One Direction run amok in their 'Midnight Memories' video

House parties! Late-night kebabs! Literal motorboating!

The One Direction lads — a.k.a. 2013’s Top Global Recording Artists — do it all and more in their new video for “Midnight Memories.” The evening begins innocuously enough, with the five boys hanging around what looks to be the end of a substandard house party. So they blow the joint and hit the London streets… and then the Thames… and then the Tower Bridge?

If it sounds kind of weird, it’s because it is. This is what happens when our country’s legal drinking age is 18! Take a look at all their antics in the energetic clip below:

Justin Bieber, Chance the Rapper drop 'Confident' video

There’s nothing a woman walking around alone at night likes more than being followed intently by a strange man — Justin Bieber knows that much.

So in the new video for his Chance the Rapper collaboration “Confidence,” the not-yet-deported pop singer does just that to his video vixen, creeping up behind her as she strolls around in the darkness.

But don’t worry, they eventually make it to some weird underground Fast and Furious party and end up sharing a kiss, so it worked! Watch the new “Confidence” video below:

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.
