Last Lap: Friday’s Odds And Ends In Music News

“MOVES LIKE JAGGER” VIDEO TO FEATURE JAGGER
According to Adam Levine, Mick Jagger himself will appear in the music video for “Moves Like Jagger.” We wrote a treatment, which the band can have free of charge: Jagger teaches the members of Maroon 5 (and Christina Aguilera, of course) the “moves” from his David Bowie duet video “Dancing in the Street.” [Rolling Stone]

NSFW OF THE DAY
Lloyd‘s new album King of Hearts dropped on Tuesday, and he’s already got a video for lead single “Cupid,” but today he premiered a new video for “Naked.” Don’t expect this one to play on television, though: it’s just Kamille Leai, aka Hot Wings from Real Chance of Love, being naked for over five minutes of the 5:22 running time. The camera angles keep the clip mostly PG-13-by-technicality, but we are talking about a video in which she takes a bath, and then takes a shower for good measure (before sexting with Lloyd, who doesn’t even appear in the video). If only this video had premiered a week ago! We could have made a good “teaser” pun. [Rap Radar]

LATE PASS IN HAND, JACK URBONT SUES GHOSTFACE KILLAH
If you’ve ever heard Ghostface Killah‘s 2000 album Supreme Clientele, you know that it opens with the “Iron Man Theme” from the 1960s animated television show The Marvel Super Heroes. Apparently, Jack Urbont, the theme’s composer, only heard the album recently, because he just this week filed a lawsuit against Ghost and Sony for illegal sampling. The lawsuit is rather strongly worded, and challenges Ghost’s right to even use the nickname Ton(e)y Starks, which Marvel would likely argue is not for Urbont to say. That said, as sampling cases go, this one is pretty open-and-shut in Urbont’s favor. Ironically, Urbont probably got the money to hire the attorneys thanks to Jon Favreau‘s use of the same theme (played by the casino band) in the Iron Man film. (Who even cared about the Avengers in 2000 other than Ghostface Killah?) [Hollywood Reporter]

IF THERE WAS A MUSIC VIDEO STOCK MARKET, CHAIN SWANGAZ WOULD BANKRUPT EVERYONE
Speaking of late passes: former MTV VJ Simon Rex (now going by Dirt Nasty and tweeting explicitly) teamed with producer Jack Splash to record some C-grade Miami bass with sub-Weird Al food puns, and they even got Brother Marquis of 2 Live Crew to rap on the track (Uncle Luke was presumably too busy preparing to run for mayor). But here’s the kicker: though they only completed post-production recently, they actually recorded the song and shot the video over a year ago, with a then-popular television actor repaying a favor by guesting in the clip. Would you believe it was Charlie Sheen? Timing really is everything. [Billboard]
