Meek Mill And Drake Have An “Amen” Party, But Not In Church

Meek Mill’s recent dispute with local Philadelphia pastor over his song “Amen,” which Pastor Jomo Johnson believes to be blasphemous, didn’t phase Meek. Bright and early on Sunday morning he dropped the NSFW video to the controversial song featuring Drake. So, we’re assuming the Philly rapper wasn’t in church when he tweeted out the link to “Amen” followed by, “#amen? video is 100% real footage! Really my whips, really club liv, really my friends, really on a jet, really drake show! #mmg.” Everything is real footage, but we hypothesize the women passed out on the sofa and in the bathtub after a long night of partying isn’t “real.” But we get the drift.

Madonna Parties In The Backseat Of A Convertible In “Turn Up The Radio”

Living la dolce vita is the motto in Madonna’s “Turn Up the Radio” video. As one of the world’s biggest pop stars, life gets hectic. But when life hands Madonna lemons she doesn’t make lemonade, she rides through the countryside of Italy in a vintage convertible escorted by a young, hot chauffeur. She escapes the noise of the flashes from paparazzi, but picks up various interesting individuals on the way. Nobody is off limits for Madge’s joy ride– breakdancers, random guys at the gas station, prostitutes, hitchhikers– they all have a place in her whip for fun times. Read more…

Aerosmith’s 9 Most Legendary Video Heroines

The gents of Aerosmith definitely have something of a reputation. A reputation for wailing guitar riffs, as well as for owning the radio waves with each new single. They’ve got a penchant for rocking hard on stage (and off!), and for dreaming big when it comes to casting their music videos. Earlier this week, they debuted their new Kill Bill-meets-Whip It clip for “Legendary Child,” —their first video in nearly eight years— and sure enough, it’s led by an all-grown up Alexa Vega (who, as a much younger girl, starred in the Spy Kids franchise!). A band may be getting older, but their taste in heroines remains ever as young and as beautiful. Hotties like Alicia Silverstone, Eva Mendes, and even Steven’s own daughter, Liv Tyler, have been starring in their videos for years. So, which of their video vixens reigns supreme? Join along as we break it down for you!

Aerosmith Do It Again In “Legendary Child”

“This is the story of America’s greatest rock band,” thus introduces the narrator in the opening of the video for “Legendary Child,” the first single from Aerosmith‘s upcoming Music From Another Dimension. The story is of drug addiction, shady managers and bad sushi overcome. And it’s a story best told by girls on roller skates because, so says the narrator, “How f****ing cool is that?”

Willow Smith Is Comfortable In Her Own Skin In “I Am Me”

It’d be a lie if we said the opening of Willow Smith’s “I Am Me” didn’t sound like Rihanna. Within seconds it’s blatantly obvious it’s not Riri because Willow has her own sound, but the similarity in sound is there, even if only for a moment. New York City is a perfect place for a video titled “I Am Me” because it’s a place where individuality is celebrated. In the middle of Washington Square Park Willow sports blue jeans and an oversized shirt toting her keyboard and skateboard. And the whole point is she just doesn’t care what anyone has to think, whether it’s about her clothes or her shaved head. Read more…

EXCLUSIVE: Watch Christina Perri and Jason Mraz’s Music Video for “Distance”

You Oughta Know artist Christina Perri first let us on to this wistful duet last January when, while speaking with our own Jim Shearer, she mentioned that she was rerecording the melancholy lovestrong cut, “Distance,” with an artist that is as many parts Justin Bieber as he is Tony Bennett. Well, that someone turned out to be the ever-likeable Jason Mraz, and their reworking? Even more vulnerable and beautiful than the original. And now she shares with us again, this time the music video for “Distance,” which is ours exclusively to share with you over the next 24-hours.

“Distance” is the story of love kept at bay. “I will make sure to keep my distance, say I love you when you’re not listening,” she sings on the chorus, where she is met by Mraz, vocals in harmony. But then the wrench is thrown and she wonders, “How long can we keep this up?”

In the video, director Elliott Sellers captures this tension by drawing the two apart, hiding Mraz the farthest corner of the beautiful mansion through which Perri wanders. Drawing the sunlight in behind her, she checks room after room. Is he in the library? The garden? At the top of the staircase? Well, you will have to watch to find out.

A$AP Rocky Wanted To “Bone” Lana Del Rey Even Though She’s “Gotta Be In Her Late 30s”

Lana Del Rey is 26-years-old, actually, which is just three more than A$AP Rocky‘s 23. Age being no thing, though, Rocky is sounding quite smitten by his A$AP Jackie O.

“She’s a genius,” he gushes in this interview with “Wassup”director Andy Capper, explaining that the idea for the “National Anthem” video — and his casting as the POTUS to her FLOTUS — was all Rey’s. “Lana wrote the treatment with me in mind,” says POTUS Rocky. “Sh*t is like, everybody knows we got a thing for each other and we wanted to show that on screen.” And all that touching and feeling they do? It’s got him thinking: “Look at this b****, I wanna f*** the sh** outta her. Look at her she’s gotta be in her late 30s and shit… Err, Hello?”

Lupe Uses Cartoon Characters For Subliminal Message In “Around My Way (Freedom Ain’t Free)”

Cruising in a white Lamborghini with too-many-to-count diamond encrusted chains around his neck is not what you’ve come to expect in a Lupe Fiasco video. Unless, of course, he’s making a larger point. For “Around My Way (Freedom Ain’t Free)” from Food & Liquor 2: The Great American Rap Album, Lupe takes it to the streets of Chicago. With creepy glowing eyes he gives dap to the guys on the block. If the possessed glowy eyes were any indication of the surprises to come we should have expected to see him sitting on a porch rapping next to cartoon characters, one that happens to roll a joint, while two others shoot dice. Oh yeah, and another drinks a 40. Read more…

It’s Time To “Celebrate” In Jordin Sparks And Whitney Houston Video

Whitney Houston may be missing from the “Celebrate” video, the last song she ever recorded, but her presence is felt. Jordin Sparks and Houston collaborated on “Celebrate” for their upcoming remake of the 1976 film Sparkle. Since Houston couldn’t appear in the video as originally planned, Sparks and her Sparkle co-stars turn “Celebrate” into a tribute to the one and only Whitney Houston. One can easily catch themselves snapping to the catchy upbeat tune. The dancing and laughing shown in video makes one want to have a celebration of their own. Whitney may not be present physically, but scenes from Sparkle show her just the way we’d like to remember her–happy! Read more…

Lana Del Rey And A$AP Rocky Are The New Age Love Story In “National Anthem”

She’s Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, and briefly Marilyn Monroe. Lana Del Rey opens the Born to Die “National Anthem” video singing “Happy Birthday, Mr. President.” And who is Mr. President? A$AP Rocky smokes a cigar while toting a gold grill. In a bit of revisionist history LDR and Rocky are modern day Jackie O and JFK with two adorable kids. As Jackie Kennedy LDR reinvents the First Lady as one born in the generation of bling. Hence, “money is the anthem of success.” Read more…
