One of the great ongoing narratives in the music world is the continued success of Eminem’s The Marshall Mathers LP 2 which has kept moving big units since its release last November, without very much promotion or fanfare. But when Eminem does come out of hiding to plug a new single, he does it in the biggest ways possible.

The Black Keys debuted their video for “Fever” off their eighth album Turn Blue and I feel flu-y (or is it the Spirit?) just watching it. Dan Auerbach is peddling some televangelism and he looks so seedy and sweaty that I think I’m coming down with something.
People are speaking in tongues, getting Holy Spirit-induced seizures, and waving bibles, which we can assume is just another Thursday on WTBK: READ FULL STORY
Tiësto just debuted his video for “Wasted,” which is basically a Mad Men era fantasy of a ladies’ luncheon devolving into a raging sorority girls gone wild pool party/pillow fight/dancing in your underwear thing. Since that’s what usually happens when girls get wasted.
Tiësto himself appears as a dreamy variety show host, and featured track guest Matthew Koma as one of the musical acts. The costume and set designers nailed Palm Springs in the 1960’s. Nicely timed to the post-Coachella blues. READ FULL STORY
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:
Avril Lavigne’s video for her new single, “Hello Kitty,” is a bit of a head-scratcher. As the pop-punk princess attempts to sway her Hot Topic minions into a new, sugar-coated world of synthesizers and cutesy pop-rap — “Someone chuck a cupcake at me?” Huh? — she’s also being accused of appropriating Japanese culture in a totally racist way.
Lavigne’s video features expressionless Japanese backup dancers following the Canadian singer around Tokyo, where she frolics through a candy store and giggles over sushi. Is she using Asian culture as a prop? Pandering to her fan base there? Or simply trying to emulate Gwen Stefani’s career in the most obvious way possible?
Lavigne views “Hello Kitty” as an homage. It’s an expression of love, she says. She took to Twitter to explain: READ FULL STORY
Intercontinental tween-pop superstars One Direction aren’t exactly considered the most visually compelling act out there, unless you’re counting the remarkable bit of bio-engineering that is Harry Styles’ hair.
But last week, they premiered a brand new video for their single “You & I” featuring a bunch of pretty impressive cloning effects. The only problem? They appear to have ripped off the idea wholesale.
Lily Allen’s at it again. In her new video for Sheezus, the never-not-opinionated Brit takes aim at reigning pop queens: Beyoncé, Katy Perry, Rihanna, Lady Gaga and even sweet little Lorde. (Surprisingly she leaves T-Swift out of it.) READ FULL STORY
Real Estate bring out Nick Kroll, Andy Daly, skateboarding vampires for 'Crime' video: Watch it here
If you’re a fan of Real Estate’s new album Atlas, extreme sports-loving vampires, old people, Thai restaurants, and/or mildly erotic ceramics, then the music video below is your Citizen Kane.
Lana Del Rey unveiled her new single “West Coast,” at Coachella last weekend — and in case you weren’t part of the desert masses this year, you can check it out below. The bluesy summer tune is off of her upcoming album Ultraviolence, which drops May 1st.
There’s a heavy influence from producer Dan Auerbach, The Black Keys frontman who has been working with her on the album. Can you catch the threads of The Beatles’ “And I Love Her“?
Watch out, David Blaine: There’s a new magician in town, and his name is Chris Martin.
In Coldplay’s new silent-film-style video for “Magic,” the first single from their upcoming album Ghost Stories, Martin plays both a douchey illusionist in a traveling circus and the illusionist’s assistant, who has a crush on his boss’ wife. But it’s not just all Martins; actress Ziyi Zhang of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon fame plays the clip’s leading lady.
