Phoenix-Review_612x380.jpg

For French electro-rock masterminds Phoenix, it never seems that being cool takes any effort.

Still, they managed to craft a track called “Trying to Be Cool” anyway, and they’ve paired it with an in-performance video that brings together all of the necessary elements for true coolness: Ladies in bikinis for no reason, guys blowing bubbles, cannons, a Marilyn Monroe tribute, an angry kid playing chess, solo ping pong, and a dance sequence straight out of Streets of Fire.

Check it out below:

On the scene: NKOTB, 98 Degrees, and Boyz II Men show Brooklyn their package (tour)

Yesterday may have been Father’s Day, but EW’s social media all-star Nika Vagner and I were the ones who received the greatest gift of all — a triple bill of boy-band hotness, courtesy of New Kids on the Block’s cheekily named The Package Tour, featuring 98 Degrees and Boyz II Men.

We posted to EW’s Instagram and Vine accounts last night from Brooklyn’s Barclays Center. Now I’m here to deliver the in-depth report: READ FULL STORY

Mayer Hawthorne's new Pharrell-produced 'Reach Out Richard': Hear it here - EXCLUSIVE

Just in time for Father’s Day, Hawthorne has a new track called “Reach Out Richard” that pays tribute to his dad.

The song, produced by Pharrell Williams (a.k.a. the man already featured on two of the top five songs in the country right now), is from his upcoming Where Does This Door Go, due July 16, and is giving us some serious Steely Dan/’70s funk yacht-party vibes.

Check out the exclusive EW premiere of “Reach Out Richard” below. READ FULL STORY

Insane Clown Posse finally getting their own TV show

Having already mastered the art of wicked rhymes, conquered the world of cinema, and asked bold questions about magnets, there’s only one frontier left for the Insane Clown Posse to conquer: television.

Thanks to Fuse, TV will soon belong to ICP. Starting Wednesday, July 24, Shaggy 2 Dope and Violent J will star in the weekly series Insane Clown Posse Theater, wherein the two Detroit rappers will comment on music videos and perform in sketches. Think of it like those video segments of Beavis & Butt-Head, or the entirety of Mystery Science Theater 3000.

Kelly Rowland releases intense new track 'Dirty Laundry', talks abusive boyfriend, Beyonce struggles: Hear it here

While the rumor mill swirls about Beyoncé’s possible bun in the Bey-oven, her former Destiny’s Child stablemate is making her own internet waves with a confessional new song.

Kelly Rowland’s new album Talk a Good Game comes out next month, and so far we’ve already heard the smooth Lil Wayne-assisted “Ice” and the barely SFW “Kisses Down Low,” but this morning Rowland unleashed an entirely different kind of conversation starter in the song “Dirty Laundry.”

The song finds Rowland airing out her feelings about an abusive ex-boyfriend and having to watch as Beyoncé’s career skyrocketed while her own failed to reach those kinds of heights. Listen below: READ FULL STORY

David Bowie taunts Gary Oldman, gives Marion Cotillard stigmata in 'The Next Day' video: Watch it here!

David-Bowie.jpg

David Bowie’s new album The Next Day (his first in 10 years, don’t forget) is obsessed with mortality and the uncertainty of the future. And in his video for the album’s title track, he taps into those themes of death and resurrection with the help of two world-famous actors who are very good at evoking both of those things.

In the clip, Bowie stands on stage performing for a number of characters that include a violent priest (played with studious pathos by Gary Oldman) and a stigmata-afflicted showgirl (Oscar winner Marion Cotillard).

Bowie plays up the Jesus imagery present in the song’s lyrics — the chorus includes a line about his “body left to rot in a hollow tree” — and in the end thanks everybody for his own professional resurrection.

Check it out below (though fair warning: it’s vaguely NSFW because of quite a bit of blood and a nipple or two).  READ FULL STORY

British comedian (and voice of Darth Maul) Peter Serafinowicz posts hilarious clip for Daft Punk's 'Get Lucky'

British comedian, onetime Hot Chip video director, and, yes, voice-of-Darth-Maul Peter Serafinowicz has just posted a highly entertaining clip for Daft Punk’s track, “Get Lucky.” According to the French duo’s publicist, the video is not authorized (although can robots really “authorize” anything anyway?) and we’re not sure quite why Serafinowicz decided to make the clip. But we’re glad he did!

You can check out the video below. READ FULL STORY

Janelle Monae and Erykah Badu slink through 'Q.U.E.E.N.' video: Watch it here!

The sexy, slinky, impossibly funky grooves of Janelle Monae’s new Erykah Badu-assisted single “Q.U.E.E.N.” demanded a next-level video, and the forward-thinking Monae has certainly delivered.

Last night, Monae pulled back the curtain on her new clip, which takes place in an alternate future that casts Monae and her musical accomplices as exhibits in a living museum, imprisoned there because of some sort of unsavory undermining of authority (or maybe they just got freaked out by Badu’s hair).

The video was directed by Alan Ferguson, who previously directed the clip for Monae’s “Many Moons” and has also guided spots for Beyoncé, Katy Perry, and Fall Out Boy.

Check out the clip below, which stars Monae as herself and Badu as “Badoula Oblongata,” which is a fantastic alter ego. READ FULL STORY
