We Play ‘Pass The Pop’ With Our Friends And You Can Too!

To test out the new ‘Pass The Pop’ feature on Pop Up Videos we asked our friends at Buzzworthy and BuzzFeed to join us in popping up fun’s “We Are Young” video.  Did you know that singer Nate Ruess was “tipsy” when pitching the song to a producer? Or that guitarist Jack Antonoff‘s sister Rachel is featured in the video?  You can join in on and Pop Up with us, or create your own video on the VH1 Pop Up Video site.  Get popping!

2 Chainz And Nicki Minaj Spend Their Spoils On Dem Strippers They Luv

2 Chainz Boost Mobile is chirpin’, his amiga Nicki Minaj‘s calling, and where else would be meeting if not at the strip club. The new Benny Boom directed clip for Chainz’s ode to the ladies “I Love Dem Strippers” returns the two to their “Beez in the Trap” strip club haunts, where they settle in with piles of cash, bottles of Birdman‘s GTV vodka and bunches of strippers. It’s an equal opportunity gentlemen’s club, and “crowned queen” Nicki fits right in because she’s got spoils to spend. “I ain’t lookin’ for the prom king,” she snarls, as she takes over the video in the second half.

Be warned, though: it’s not the artists billed on this song that get the real shine here, it’s the beloved Dem Strippers that really steal the show. So if you’re at work, check out our PG screen shots below and save the rest for when you get home. Read more…

Pop Up Video Returns With A New Way For Fans To Get In On The Fun

Our favorite fun-fact packed music video show Pop Up Video is back, bloops and all, weekday afternoons at 12/11c on VH1! They kicked the season off with the lowdown on Katy Perry’s boozy “The One That Got Away” set. And it looks like they’re just getting warmed up with all the snark-filled glory. A little birdie told me Green Day, The Black Keys, Janet Jackson, Flo Rida and a little “Sexy Can IRay J action are just a few of the stars getting their turn in the hot seat in upcoming episodes.

So, in honor of the return of the show that has made me the queen of pop culture trivia over the years, I used the fabulous create-your-own Pop Up Video player to add some fun facts (read: I found them on Wiki and made the rest up) to All-4-One’s “I Can Love You Like That.” I passed it along to my friends on Facebook and Twitter, who added their own comments. Hilarity ensued. And, because we know you’re as hungry for some 1990s R&B smooth grooves as Anne Hathaway was for food while she was on that Les Miserable diet, check out our video above and add your own Pop Ups. Then head over to popup.vh1.com, if you’re feeling inspired, and show us what you’ve got.

Exclusive: First Look At The New Pop Up Video Logo

A little over a month ago, we announced that Pop Up Video would be making its long awaited return to the VH1 airwaves this fall. While we’re still waiting on an official premiere date from our friends in programming, we thought that we would share this with you guys: It’s the updated Pop Up Video logo!

Since we just did you guys a solid, maybe now you can do us one in return? Check out our brand new Pop Up Video Facebook page and, if you like what you see, feel free to “Like” us! Also, we’ll be using our Facebook presence as a way to get valuable (and, hopefully, hilarious!) content from you guys, the viewers, that we may end up including in the show itself. Just yesterday, we began working on our treatment for Britney Spears’ “Till The World Ends” by asking our fans “If the world ended tomorrow, I would _________ [fill in the blank].” Leave a comment and your reply just might end up on TV!

To help get you in the spirit, check out our old Pop Up treatment of Madonna‘s “Vogue” below (if you want more, check out this playlist, which also includes George Michael‘s “I Want Your Sex,” Paula Abdul‘s “Straight Up” and more):
