Psy's 'Gangnam Style' crosses 2 billion YouTube views

GANGAM-STYLE-PSY.jpg

Either everybody and their mother has viewed Psy’s video for “Gangnam Style” at this point, or some of you are still watching the South Korean pop star do the horse dance five times a day.

The video for the irrepressible dance song has now surpassed 2 billion views, crossing the mark shortly before midnight on Friday. The only other video with a billion-plus views on the streaming site is Justin Bieber’s “Baby.” But at 1.04 billion clicks, even “Baby” doesn’t come close to topping the unlikely viral star’s YouTube popularity.

Psy also holds another YouTube record: He scored the most views in a day with 38 million for his “Gangnam Style” followup, “Gentleman.”

Watch Tori Amos' new video for 'Trouble's Lament' -- EXCLUSIVE

Tori Amos

In Tori Amos’ new video for the smoky single “Trouble’s Lament,” off her freshly released Unrepentant Geraldines, the fiery-haired singer croons, “Trouble needs a home, girls/She fell out with Satan, now she’s on the run,” as she sits in a diner watching three ladies — all named Trouble? — escape their dark pasts with some sly tricks and sleight of hand.

The North Carolina native spins a tale echoing her Southern roots. In this story, it’s a woman standing at the crossroads and bartering for her soul. And the Devil, it seems, is happy to help her out…who do you think drives that getaway car? Watch it below: READ FULL STORY

That moment when Steven Tyler forgets the words to his own song -- VIDEO

We’ve all been there. You start belting out a song you love — maybe after imbibing a few drinks — and you’re confident. You’re pretty sure you are Annie Lennox. Then comes the forgettable wasteland of the second verse, and you trail off into just making yodeling noises. Er…

That just happened to Steven Tyler — but he was singing his own song. READ FULL STORY

Paul McCartney dances with a robot in 'Appreciate' video

PAUL-MCCARTNEY-ROBOT.jpg

Paul McCartney may have partnered with his biggest collaborator yet — in physical size, that is.

The Beatles legend stars opposite an oversized robot named Newman in the music video for “Appreciate,” a track off the pop star’s album New, released last year. In the clip, McCartney is an exhibit at The Museum of Man, where Newman is on patrol. When the singer comes to life, Newman pulls him into his reality, where other exhibits become animated, thanks to the sweet sounds of Macca.

“I woke up one morning with an image in my head of me standing with a large robot,” McCartney said in a statement. “I thought it might be something that could be used for the cover of my album New, but instead the idea turned out to be for my music video for ‘Appreciate.’ Together with the people who had done the puppetry for the worldwide hit War Horse, we developed the robot who became Newman.”

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.

New Black Keys video 'Fever' -- Watch it here

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

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

Watch Katy Perry go undercover, crash parties in 'Birthday' music video -- VIDEO

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

One-Direction.jpg

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.
