Looks like Christmas, Hanukkah and Kwanzaa came early this year! Or, if you celebrate Eid al-Fitr, super late! Whatever faith tradition you belong to, we can guarantee you’ll still be baffled by John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John‘s video for their new holiday classic “I Think You Might Like It.” Great Christmas song title, you guys! It goes without saying that there is a variety of weirdnesses going on in the self-made video, but we tried to isolate the 10 weirdest for you to wrap your holiday-loving brain around:
Ladies, what we we doing here? We can’t be the only ones who were surprised to see you slow-motioning in Boregore‘s new “Decisions” video, a sentence we never could have foreseen having to type until right this second. If we are going to see you two smeared with cake in a music video, it should be in a Miley Cyrus joint for a Miley Cyrus song, not hanging out behind some other singer just looking amazing. Plus you had to appear next to so many spirit hoods. What is this, eight months ago? You guys. Seriously.
We guess we didn’t really mind it when you guest starred on Two And A Half Men because at least that was a different medium. But even as a featured artist, Miley sounds too good for us not to wish this could just be a new Miley Cyrus song. And not dubstep. Boregore had better be producing some sick, sick jams for Miley’s fourth album, which now has to come out a day later as a result of you guys shooting this video. Thanks a lot, you two. (Miley’s hair does look amazing though. Please let it know by whatever means body parts communicate with one another.)
We’ve seen some Taylor Swift things in our life, but there is nothing more Taylor Swift then the first shots of TSwift’s new video shoot in France. First of all, she’s shooting it in Paris. The whole thing is so French, there’s a window behind her that is inscribed with the word “croissant,” written in gold, and it isn’t even an important detail in the shot. Second of all, please look at Taylor’s baller status outfit. The only human being who can rival Taylor in the vintage patterned skirt and sheer blouse department is Zooey Deschanel, and even then Zooey hasn’t been photographed holding a tiny fruit tart. At least not recently anyway.
Boom! That’s some Taylor Swift game right there! We don’t even have to get into the red lips, do we? The shoot is apparently for Swift’s “Begin Again” video, which makes complete sense…
In case forcing the crew of The Canyon to take off their clothes before her nude scene hadn’t convinced you, this rumor confirms what we’ve long suspected: Lindsay Lohan must be so much fun to hang out with, other celebs quickly forget about all her arrests. And her car accidents. And I Know Who Killed Me. According to the New York Post, Lilo has allegedly been cast in an upcoming music video from Lady Gaga‘s new album ARTPOP. Seeing as how the news emerged only days after Lohan spent the night hanging out with Gaga at the Chateau Marmont, maybe Lindsy should book a whole bunch of celebrity sleepovers! Not in a filthy way, you pervs. We mean in a Boogle-playing, Chex mix-eating, Poltergeist-watching kind of way. Oh wait, that’s starting to sound sexy too. Hmmm….
So maybe Lindsay did get Gaga her part as La Chameleon in Robert Rodiguez‘s Machete Kills like we postulated. Tit for tat, ya’ll! Anyway you slice it, Lindsay’s innate awesomeness must have played a big part in landing her the role, considering the fact Lady G could have any actress she wanted star in her videos. Gaga could have someone build a time machine, travel back to the ’50s and bring back Marilyn Monroe if she really wanted to! Marilyn probably wouldn’t be as much fun at a sleepover, though; she’d be too busy screaming at having been kidnapped through time.

Ugh, this is just like “Stars Are Blind” all over again. Joining Paris Hilton, Rebecca Black and, well, not so much Kim Kardashian, Heidi Klum debuted a sultry song entitled “Turn Up The Night ” today, whereupon we immediately identified it as the semi-shameful guilty pleasure that it is. We’ve listened to it…a reasonable number of times so far. While the model and Project Runway host might be frolicking half-nude in a tattoos-and-leather-harness wonderland for the song’s video, the part that really made our jaws drop is the fact that Heidi’s vocals are pretty good. This is the kind of song you listen to at the gym or in your car with the windows rolled up, but never let anyone catch you singing along to. The best kind of song, is what we’re saying.
Klum apparently recorded the song and took a spin around the pole in collaboration with Hunger Magazine. According to the Britain’s The Telegraph, Heidi’s single will be just that; she isn’t working on an album or some larger project. Isn’t that the way it should be with these kinds of songs? Seriously, we feel guilty even having you know how much we enjoyed this one song. Now let us never speak of this again.
It’s not like Nelly Futardo’s outfit wasn’t striking enough on its own. Note, we didn’t say “good” or “bad.” We’re being nice today and sticking to striking. Do feel free to come up with your own conclusions when you gaze upon her black mesh and fuchsia piping (especially down those extra-long trousers). Slicked back hair, huge retro earrings and a gash of red lipstick completed the look. What really stood out about her was the fact that she was hitting the skyline … in stilts. Who knew Nelly could even do that? The circus antics were due to the fact that she was filming her new track’s — called “Big Hoops (The Bigger the Better)” — video in downtown L.A. She apparently didn’t need much help with the stilt-walking at all, so girlfriend’s been practicing. That does not look easy! The song is going to be a part of her new album T.S.I. (it stands for “The Spirit Indestructible”), which is scheduled for release in June. Are you looking forward to the return of Nelly?

When we saw photographs of Nicki Minaj writhing about on the sands of Hawaii, we were wondering what the hell she was up to. Then we found out that she’s actually shooting the music video for her track Starships. Since the song starts with, “Let’s go to the beach” this makes a lot more sense now. It doesn’t make it any less eye-popping though. You can’t really not gawk at Nicki with her green hair and bright pink bikini, especially because she’s putting on quite a show. As you’ll see in the pictures, the singer’s doing everything from being kittenish on her knees, to lying on and arching her back. It’s Sexy 101. Wonder how it will translate on film? Until we get to see it on celluloid … to the gallery, fab folk!

Hope you packed your eyeballs with Nicki Minaj‘s filthy florescent-colored diss video “Stupid H–” when you had the chance. According to TMZ, you won’t be seeing it on BET anytime soon. While the channel allegedly didn’t specify whether it was the video’s plastic Barbie-fied booties or filthy language or, lord, just about everything else that pushed it over the line, either way BET deemed the spot too explicit to broadcast. Aside from the fact that it’s smothered in raunch dressing, we personally would have banned the Nicki Minaj video just for that unsettling image of Nicki’s face morphing into a cheetah head. That is just…not right.
The whole thing also really makes us wonder about Nicki’s Super Bowl appearance. Should we have the kids should watch it with blindfolds on, just in case? What do you think about BET’s decision?

It wouldn’t be a Rihanna video unless it got banned on at least one continent, right? Right. Much like the singer’s latex, whips and Perez-Hilton-on-a-dog-leash extravaganza S&M, RiRi’s new spot for her number one single “We Found Love” has been officially banned from daytime television in France. The Supreme Audiovisual Council of France declared the video inappropriate to air prior to 10:00 pm, due to its depictions of “self-destructive behavior” and “pronounced suggestive” material, i.e. that bandanna bikini top. We guess the video’s mix of drug use, domestic disputes, shoplifting, Chris Brown look-alikes and slimy bathtub loitering was bound to shatter a monocle or two. We can already see where this is headed, so they’d better go ahead and ban the videos from her Talk The Talk album. Seriously, just get it out of the way now.

A 61-year-old farmer named Alan Graham kicked Rihanna off his land yesterday, as she was shooting the video for “We Found Love” in Northern Ireland. Apparently, it was Rihanna’s bandana bra and undies that set the farmer off. The fact that she stripped down topless obviously didn’t help her cause. Our favorite part of this story is the following quote by Mr. Graham:
“I had never heard of Rihanna until someone called me requesting the use of my land. I knew on Monday who she was. Someone explained she was as big as it gets as far as pop stars were concerned. I am a bit illiterate about those issues.”
About her frolicking in next to nothing, he added, “I realized things had got to a stage which was not acceptable to me. Things became inappropriate and I asked the film crew to stop. If someone wants to borrow my field and things become inappropriate, then I say, ‘Enough is enough. You are not entitled to do that’. She understood where I was coming from. We shook hands and parted company on good terms.”
You know what? As much as we adore Rih, we agree kind of agree with this Mr. Graham! Especially since he explained there was no “firm arrangement” about borrowing the field. This would never happen in the city, right? There would be lawyers and contracts coming out of the wazoo!
