Technically, I was going to post Rihanna‘s “Bitch Better Have My Money” video yesterday, since it came out at midnight on Wednesday night, but I didn’t even get a chance to watch it until last night, so here we are. Honestly, I don’t even know where to begin and what to say about it at all, but RiRi has certainly outdone herself with this one. I mean, I’m a little bit scared of her at this point, because the whole thing is pretty twisted, but I also love it and feel like, well, at least Rihanna’s a pop star that constantly tries to outdo herself. She certainly did it this time.
“BBHMM” is definitely the best track from R8 we’ve heard so far (though word on the street is that the album has been scrapped due to poor response to most of the first promotional material and Rihanna’s going back to the drawing board with new producers/writers – not sure how true that is, though!) so I’m glad it got a full-length video. I mean, I’m still a little concerned for what goes on in Rihanna’s brain, given that she came up with this concept herself and directed it, but I’m just gonna go along with it.
Justin Bieber is getting adventurous when it comes to his new music, so he’s teamed up with EDM douchebag Diplo and slightly awkward but really nice guy Skrillex for a new song called “Where Are U Now”. It’s a strange video but a pretty catchy song… not to mention it contains a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it shout out to Justin’s ex x 5,000 times, Selena Gomez!
OMGGGGGG… does this mean they will get back 2gether?! (Insert eye roll here.)
All sarcasm aside, I actually hate myself for how much I like this song, but hey, I’m not immune to a good beat. It’s really well-put together and a total bop, so don’t judge me (too harshly). Have a listen below if you haven’t already and let me know what you think because I need validation that I’m not going crazy by being so into this shit. I really wonder how this collaboration came about, because you know both Diplo and Sonny had dollar signs in their eyes when this collab was finalized. I mean, the video is already up to over 4 million views, which is not too shabby. That’s all Bieber fans, too.
A little over a month or so ago, Britney Spears and Iggy Azalea came out with a track called “Pretty Girls”, a bop they hoped would become the song of the summer. It’s catchy, sure, and the video is ridiculously hilarious to the point that it almost becomes kind of enjoyable in spite of it, but it never took off. No one’s blasting it from their cars as they drive around town, no one’s requesting it on the radio, and no one’s paying for it. The fault for that, says Iggy, is all on Britney.
Below are a bunch of her messy ass tweets about the song. Her basic argument is that she’s only “featured” so she has no power to do anything (despite the fact that people have proven her wrong by citing other collab songs where one artist has gone out to do promo work on it) and that she won’t “suck the woman’s asshole” (that’s Britney’s asshole, for the record) by not calling her out. Lord have mercy. Can’t anyone keep her off social media?
@rhuancesarr its difficult to send a song up the charts without additional promo and tv performances etc. unfortunately im just featured…
It’s a pretty sad state of affairs for Madonna these days. Instead of being content with the fact that she’s an absolute legend and going out on a high note, she’s instead tried to cling to the whole ‘young popstar’ thing by competing (attempting to compete?) with the kids. Since that hasn’t worked out all that well, she’s decided that the old saying of “if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em” is true, and she’s copied off Taylor Swift to create a star-studded video for her new single, “Bitch, I’m Madonna”. And yes, that’s a serious title.
The video has cameos from pretty much everyone, from Katy Perry to Beyonce, Miley Cyrus, Kanye West, and the list goes on and on. Most of those appearances weren’t filmed on location (seemingly only Rita Ora and Diplo had holes in their schedule to actually show up for this shit show), and the whole thing just reeks of desperation. I don’t even know what else to say about it than that. Oh, also, please keep in mind she premiered this BS on TIDAL, which is subscription-only. Well, it was. I think people “bitched” enough that it’s now on YouTube, hyuck hyuck. BYE, MADONNA.
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…
