Tiesto's 'Wasted' video: If the women of 'Mad Men' had a pool party -- watch it here

Tiesto-Wasted.jpg

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

Katy-Perry-Birthday.jpg

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 responds to criticism that her 'Hello Kitty' video is racist

hello-kitty-avril-lavigne.jpg

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

Did One Direction rip off their 'You and I' video? Australian act Clubfeet says yes

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.

Moody summer vibes on Lana Del Rey's new single 'West Coast': hear it here

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“?

Coldplay drops old-timey video for new single 'Magic' with special guest star -- watch it here

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.

Lena Dunham directs new Bleachers video for 'I Wanna Get Better' -- watch it here

i-wanna-get-better.jpg

The Bleachers video for “I Wanna Get Better” feels a lot like an episode of Girls: emotional discord and screwed-up relationships set against a backdrop of real-world apartments and therapists’ offices — and of course, random celebrity cameos.

The clip opens with lead singer Jack Antonoff (also the bassist of fun., and the real-life boyfriend of Ms. Dunham) chasing after his girlfriend as she storms out of the house, leaving him for good. “This is crazy; we’re, like, not even awake yet,” he whines. “Come back inside and I’ll make you an espresso.” But she’s not going to be placated, and his day is downhill from there.

Antonoff arrives at his psychiatric practice with coffee on his crotch and a bevy of disgruntled clients to see — played by actors like Retta from Parks & Rec and Mary Kay Place from Big Love. Everyone’s screaming “I Wanna Get Better,” (which should definitely be the theme song for GIRLS):

Anyway, watch the clip here:

'This Is A Trent Reznor Song' now has a Nine Inch Nails-biting video

Trent-Reznor.jpg

A few weeks ago, a dude named Frederick Scott tickled Nine Inch Nails fans with “This Is A Trent Reznor Song,” a loving tribute to the NIN frontman’s songwriting and performance tics. It was awesome, and one of the better musical parodies on the entirety of the Internet.

Now comes the next stage: Scott’s video for “This Is A Trent Reznor Song,” which borrows elements from the clips for Nine Inch Nails’ “Closer” and “The Hand That Feeds.” Once again Scott nails it, with the same kind of video effects from “The Hand That Feeds” and the commitment to spooky photography and weird lighting from the classic “Closer.”

It’s a little more outwardly funny than the song itself—the reaction shot Scott gives to the bottle of milk is particularly fantastic—but it still retains the same kind of reverence for Reznor’s work as the track.

Check out the video below. And while you’re at it, check out some of the clips from Nine Inch Nails’ Tension tour, one of the better live music experiences from last year.
