For those of you who haven’t been following along this week, welcome! We are in the home stretch of counting down the Top 100 Videos of 2011 … So Far, and for those of you who been riding shotgun, scanning through #100-51 and #50-11 of our list of the most-watched videos on VH1.com, we salute your dedication and loyalty! Now, it’s onto the Top Ten. Drums, please…
10. Cee Lo Green, “F*** You”
What a year it’s been for Cee Lo! Kicking off his The Lady Killer album release with a powerful single that even had your grandma using cuss words, it was only right that he delivered a visual that packed the same punch. Co-written by Bruno Mars, the video for the happily hostile post-breakup anthem chronicles Cee Lo in a diner from childhood to adulthood, dealing with the hardships that often plague those looking for love. In case you can’t get enough of him, hold on to his sweet, nasty and sarcastic Valentine’s Day messages for next year, and check out his incredible Storytellers performance, too!
9. Christina Perri, “Jar of Hearts”
In a much more intense version of Cee Lo’s #10 video, You Oughta Know songstress Christina Perri airs some love-related greivances of her own. Stating very plainly that she refuses to become a notch on someone’s belt, the tattooed beauty opts to avoid an unhealthy romantic encounter with an ex. In the dark video, the male antagonist is literally running around leaving scars, sucking womens souls from their bodies. Eek! Who does he think he is? In any event, we’re proud of Christina for abstaining and staying strong. If you want to catch more of her, check out her Posted content and a super special YOK Live performance she graced us with.
