Weird guy with weird mustaches goes viral with weird Rihanna lip-sync video: Watch it here -- VIDEO

Who is Mattstache Ferguson, and what does he want from us?

We’re not sure, but here’s what we do know (thanks to his Twitter account): He’s a New Jersey resident, faculty in an American studies/comm department, a history nerd, a “student affairs professional,” and — these last two are probably the most important — a YouTube lip-syncer and facial hair enthusiast.

Intrigued? Of course you are, it’s Friday. See six of his variously facial-haired heads lip-sync Rihanna’s “Where Have You Been” at you in this already-trending clip:

Chris Martin and Rihanna ninja up for 'Princess of China' video: Watch it here

Notice how we said Chris Martin and not Coldplay? That’s because none of the other band members appear in the latest clip for the Mylo Xyloto single. But, hey, at least someone besides Rihanna showed up this time!

Other things that appear: Rihanna’s arms, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon-y (or at least Kung Fu Panda-y) moves, and a near-miss of a make-out session.

Take a look at it in the video below:

Florence + the Machine gets David LaChapelle for new 'Spectrum' video: Watch it here

Somebody has finally convinced David LaChapelle to direct another music video, and it isn’t Rihanna.

After a five-year break from the music-video game, the coveted photographer and director (along with his trusted choreographer John Byrne) has delivered arresting visuals for Florence + the Machine’s “Spectrum,” the newest single off the band’s Ceremonials.

The clip offers your eyeballs such theatrical imagery — leaping ballerinas, topless pharaohs,  art-deco sets — that Florence Welch’s scene-stealing red hair is one of the video’s tamer elements. Check out the “Spectrum” video for yourself:

Chris Brown calls Rihanna his 'old b---' in new freestyle; she unfollows him on Twitter

Need to get something off your chest? Apparently “Theraflu” is the solution.

The song wherein Kanye West debuted his romance with Kim Kardashian was recently appropriated by Chris Brown, who lets loose in a few freestyle verses — and Rihanna’s not happy about it.

At one point on the track, Brown woos us with the lines, “Don’t f— with my old bitch, it’s like a bad fur / Every industry n—– done had her / Shook the tree like a pumpkin just to smash her / Bitch is breaking codes, but I’m the password.”

The identity of this “old bitch” is up for interpretation, obviously, but Rihanna (who, in the past, has been romantically linked to Drake, Justin Timberlake, and Josh Hartnett) seemed to have a hunch. After Breezy debuted the song on his Twitter, RiRi tweeted, “Aw, poor dat #neaux1currrrr” and promptly unfollowed Brown’s Twitter account.

How did Brown respond? By unfollowing her back, of course, and also tweeting, “Assumptions! I didn’t say any names so if u took offense to it then its something you feel guilty about.”

Hmm. We dunno, maybe listening to the song below will help clear things up? Let’s give it a shot:

Rihanna gets tribal in 'Where Have You Been' video: Watch it here

Rihanna: Armed again!

After making a splash with her numerous limbs in last week’s “Princess of China” clip, RiRi returns today with a similarly arm-y new video for the Talk That Talk banger “Where Have You Been.”

In it, Rihanna takes a Beyoncé-ish approach by anchoring exotic, variously costumed dance numbers. Themes range from tribal bonfire to that unfortunate rave scene in The Matrix Reloaded, but our favorite part comes at the 3:30 mark, when Rihanna’s inner Hindu goddess comes out once again.

Check it all out in the video below, and let us know what you think down in the comments:

Rihanna gets handsy in Coldplay-free 'Princess of China' video: Watch it here

rihanna

So, who has the fairest hands of them all? We used to think it was Beyonce, but thanks to Rihanna’s new “Princess of China” video, we just don’t know anymore.

The clip is decidedly simple in its weirdness: RiRi, equipped with unwieldy gold talons, chills in front of a green screen and lets her many, many arms do the talking.

Coldplay fans will also notice that Chris Martin and company are absent not just from the video but also from the song. Though it’s taken from the  band’s Mylo Xyloto album, the edited track does away with Martin’s vocals and lets Rihanna soak up the spotlight. That’s because the clip was tailored to play behind Coldplay during their massive international tour, and, you know, Rihanna’s got things to do.

Check out the mildly trippy, Asian-influenced video below and let us know how you feel about all those arms:

New music from Snoop Dogg, Willie Nelson, Rihanna, and more appear in honor of 4/20

You may have noticed that Snoop Dogg’s been suspiciously active today. That’s because the rapper, like a number of other like-minded musicians, has a calendar, and it’s telling him that his favorite holiday has arrived.

Yes, there’s been a flurry of 4/20-themed releases surfacing all day, and it seems like Snoop has something do with all of them. The most high-profile offering is “Rollup,” a country collaboration with his braid-bro Willie Nelson, Jamey Johnson, and Kris Kristofferson. You can roll up to Nelson’s official site to give it a listen.

Mr. Dogg also dropped a new song of his own (why, yes, it is called “Stoner’s Anthem”!), a collaboration track with Belly, and a Jamaica-centric 4/20 PSA. Check it all out in the videos below: READ FULL STORY

Adele, LMFAO, and Rihanna lead Billboard Music Award finalists

Fresh off their name-checks in the Time 100, Adele and Rihanna have more kudos to brag about. They’re leading the pack of Billboard Music Awards nominees, along with Lady Gaga, LMFAO, and Lil Wayne. Adele scored 18 nods — including Top Artist, Top Female Artist, and Top Billboard 200 Artist — off the mega-sales of her album 21 and its lead single “Rolling in the Deep.” “Party Rockers” LMFAO will be in the house behind thanks to 17 nods. Rihanna could win up to 13 trophies, and Lady Gaga and Lil Wayne could be walking home with a lot of hardware, after netting 10 nods apiece. Usual suspects like Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Coldplay, Nicki Minaj, and Bruno Mars are also among the pool of finalists. You can view the full list here.

Drake drops videos featuring Rihanna, Lil Wayne, and his own bar mitzvah: Watch them here

Under the cover of darkness, Drake released not one but two music videos last Friday night, quickly turning G.O.O.D. Friday into Double Drake Day including him wearing another Drake shirt he’s so popular for.

One of the clips is the arty  “Take Care,” the Rihanna-featuring title track off Drizzy’s latest album, featuring the pair giving one another moody embraces and jumping around in slow motion, alongside a bull and a bird (metaphors for the singers? Maybe, I dunno) also doing slo-mo stuff, with intercuts of snowy nature vistas.

The second video, “HYFR,” is much more festive, kicking off with vintage footage of a young Aubrey “Drake” Graham becoming a man at his bar mitzvah. What follows is his re-bar mitzvah, full of celebration, cake, and Lil Wayne with a panda head.

Check out both videos below:

Rihanna talks Chris Brown, future babies in new interview

Warning: This post was produced while listening to Rihanna’s “Birthday Cake” remix on repeat — “and it’s not even my birthday”!

So, Rihanna. What’s up with her?

Last we checked, she was raising her hand to play the lead role in a Whitney Houston biopic, tweeting potentially offensive digs at her ex-boyf’s new girl, and, um, starring in Peter Berg’s Battleship. (You know you’ve got a crazy lifestyle when showing up in an multimillion-dollar boardgame-turned-movie is the least interesting thing you’ve got going on.)

And now the “We Found Love” singer has something new for us: an Elle cover (out April 17) and her thoughts on men, babies, and man-baby Chris Brown.
