Of course, if you want to see the whole thing, you have to subscribe to Jay-Z’s bullshit music streaming service, Tidal, which will run you a cool $9.99 a month. Or you can just troll YouTube for when fans upload the full thing there and watch it before it inevitably gets deleted.
As you can see from the screencap above, the full video consists of lots of Nicki & Bey eating burgers, having ~silly girl time~ and, well, feelin’ themselves. So there’s that.
Taylor Swift has been teasing her epic “Bad Blood” video for the past week, gradually leaking her famous friends in superhero form that star alongside her in it. It’s been a long wait, but the video finally premiered during last night’s Billboard Music Awards and it’s basically a big budget, celebrity fueled, Katy Perry shade fest. And it’s glorious.
I don’t want to spoil too much for you, so I’ll just embed the video here for your enjoyment.
It’s about time for a new Taylor Swift single, and that single is going to be “Bad Blood”, which we all know by now was inspired by Katy Perry. They used to be friends, then they weren’t, and now there’s a song out of it. The video is due to be released soon, and Taylor revealed when you’ll finally be able to see it – as well as the inspiration behind the video – on Twitter yesterday.
Directed by Joseph Kahn, it is being billed as “a video includes multiple starring roles played by a cast of Golden Globe winners, Emmy winners, Grammy winners, an Oscar nominee, blockbuster movie stars, as well as both new and iconic supermodels.”
Huh, sounds… exciting. Kahn directed the “Style” video, as well, if that gives you any indication of his, er, style…
Sia has been working with Dance Moms star Maddie Ziegler for a while now. Maddie, who’s 12, has appeared in the music videos for ‘Chandelier’ and ‘Elastic Heart’ and has performed alongside the singer on most of her big TV performances, as well, like Ellen and even at the Grammys. It looks like their collaboration isn’t going to slow down any time soon, either, since Maddie is also the star of the new ‘Big Girls Cry’ video.
I have to say, I absolutely love Sia and what she’s doing. I know some people don’t “get” it or her, and that’s fair enough – to each her own – but I think Sia’s brilliant and Maddie is the perfect way for her to express all the chaos in her mind. Love it.
Rihanna has been teasing us with the prospect of new music for a while now, and while our ears have been tortured by that terrible ‘FourFive Seconds’ shit, I think we’re all more than ready for a true Rihanna banger to get the warmer season started, right? RIGHT.
So, here we have the second single from the upcoming R8 album. It’s called ‘Bitch Better Have My Money’ and features some very touching lyrics, such as:
Bitch better have my money!
Y’all should know me well enough
Bitch better have my money!
Please don’t call me on my bluff
Pay me what you owe me
Ballin’ bigger than LeBron
Bitch, give me your money
Who y’all think y’all frontin’ on?
Like brrap, brrap, brrap
This is perfect since, you know, RiRi has been talking lately about how she wants the new album to really focus on the meaningful:
You love Meghan Trainor. You know you do. I mean, you totally can’t stand her, but you also can’t stop singing ‘Lips Are Movin’ every time it comes on the radio, even though she makes you want to jump out the nearest window. Oh, am I just telling my own life story? Whatever.
Meghan has another new song to torture us now, and admittedly, I can’t stand this one. It’s called ‘Dear Future Husband’ and it’s god awful. Here are some sample lyrics:
Take me on a date
I deserve it, babe
And don’t forget the flowers every anniversary
‘Cause if you’ll treat me right
I’ll be the perfect wife
Buy-buying what you need
After every fight
And maybe then I’ll let you try and rock my body right
Even if I was wrong
You know I’m never wrong
Why, why disagree?
Wow, sounds aewsome. Pretend I’m perfect and pay lip service to me even if you don’t agree because otherwise I won’t fuck you or make you dinner like a good wife. Awesome message.
I have no shame in saying that I absolutely love Taylor Swift‘s latest album, 1989, and think it’s brilliant. I’ve always loved ‘Style’ – it was one of my favs of the album. And it seems Taylor’s team agreed, because it’s the latest single!
The video for ‘Style’ wasn’t supposed to come out until tomorrow, but MuchMusic released it early and I ganked their embed code so you can see it, too. Enjoy!
P.S. I absolutely love that pretty much this entire album is about Harry Styles. Cracks me up.
