The Saturdays Strut + Dance in Sunny ‘What About Us’ Video

The Saturdays strut down the sidewalk in short shorts and dance around in an empty baseball field in their new video for ‘What About Us,’ the latest single for the U.K. girl group.

The ladies spend a sunny L.A. afternoon shopping for clothes and hanging out at a swimming pool before heading inside a billiards hall, where they school some dudes, who clearly had no idea the girls were such talented pool players.

As daylight fades, the Saturdays and a bunch of friends hope a fence to gain access to a baseball field, where they dance under the stadium lights. Sean Paul, who appears on the ‘What About Us’ single, doesn’t appear in the video version, which is fine, because wouldn’t you rather watch the Saturdays instead?

Expect to see much more of the ladies in their E! reality show ‘Chasing the Saturdays,’ which chronicles their efforts to make it big in America.

Kesha + Her Furry Friends Cause Trouble in ‘C’Mon’ Video

In her video for ‘C’Mon,’ pop music’s resident bad girl Kesha plays a bleached blond, lollipop-sucking and sexually harassed waitress at the Awful House. Haha, get it. Waffle House. She’s a wild child ready to break out of that restricting job in this vid.

Kesha looks like a mini Dolly Parton when she gets picked up by a van full of people dressed like mascots from amusement parks. They proceed to cause trouble -it’s somewhat harmless, as they make a mess in a mini mart and at the Awful House.

It’s what we expect from dirty girl Kesha, as she cavorts in heels, gets felt up by one of the costumed dancers, slinks around in a furry hot tub and winks seductively at the camera from start to finish. If she’s trying to be outrageous and raise a few eyebrows in a silly way, she succeeded here.

Nelly Furtado Celebrates Day of the Dead in ‘Waiting for the Night’ Video

Nelly Furtado just released a dramatic black-and-white music video from ‘Waiting for the Night’ — the fourth single off her latest album ‘The Spirit Indestructible.’

The vid first features Furtado in a white belly baring tank and pants, sporting what appears to be Dia de los Muertos inspired makeup on only half of her face (which reminded us of Lady Gaga‘s skeleton look in ‘Born This Way‘). The camera then pans to a number of dancers rocking the same style — only this time, they’re clad in white dresses and nailing some impressive choreography.

What happens next is kind of eyebrow raising, as Furtado appears dressed to the nines and ready to tango. Um, what?!

Still, the tune is perhaps the catchiest single to come off the aforementioned album, and with an easily memorable chorus, “Day and night, day and night / You blow my mind, blow my mind / And I can’t help, help myself from falling / So I’m waiting for the night,” you’re guaranteed to be singing along in no time!

Marcus Canty Gets Smooth in ‘Used By You’ Video

Marcus Canty sings like he was sent from heaven — but in ‘Used By You,’ he suggests activities that go down slightly south of there.

In the video, he serenades a stunning lady into leaving her two-timing man for a bit to be with him. The ‘X Factor‘ alum also shows off some sweet moves in the clip, evoking early boy bands with some chair dancing before getting close to his paramour. There are chemicals in shattering bottles, representing the palpable chemistry between Canty and his lady, as well as some telekinesis. Our favorite parts, though, are when Canty raises his eyebrows at the camera — dude knows what he’s doing!

One Direction Get Silly, Ski, Go Shirtless + Dress Like Sailors in ‘Kiss You’ Video

After like a billion teasers, One Direction have finally premiered their video for ‘Kiss You.’ They get silly, go skiing (complete with ugly sweaters), get shirtless (SWOON!), surf, dress like sailors and dance in a jailhouse. Whew. That about says it all.

It’s a super cute and nonsensical video about making a video — you see the crews, the green screens and the photos being taken of the boys as they pay homage to Elvis Presley and the Beatles.

The pure stupidity and dancing that the band warned us about is there.

Other things you need to look out for? Zayn Malik wears swimmies. Harry Styles pinches Malik’s nipples while they ride a vehicle. Malik plants a smooch on Styles’ cheek. There’s much, much more!

It’s the silliest video that 1D have ever done. Watch it like 100 times. You won’t be sorry!

Skrillex Releases Video for Ellie Goulding Collabo ‘Summit,’ Has Slew of Unreleased Tracks

Cheer up, brokenhearted Skrellie fans! Skrillex and Ellie Goulding may not be dating anymore, but he promises they’re still pals, and would love to collaborate with her again — and as a token of proof, he’s just posted an official video for ‘Summit,’ the song that started their union in and out of the studio.

Goulding isn’t in the clip, of course, but it’s still a nice nod to their past together — especially given that Skrillex is so eager to share the next step of his musical evolution. As he told Billboard during a recent interview, “I have so much music. I have too many songs to even know what to do with.”

Actually, he does know what to do with them: He wants to make an album. He just hasn’t gotten around to it yet. “I just haven’t had enough time to really sit down and idle myself and clear my mind and go, ‘OK, what’s the next thing I want to say? How’s it different from what I said before?’ and think of all these things,” he explained. “I have so much inside me, so many ideas, I’m more excited than ever to make music again, ’cause I haven’t done that for, like, two years.”

To that end, Skrillex says he plans to hit the studio and release some singles in the first few months of 2013, followed by more recording — with no set preconceptions about what the results might be. “It could be the best three songs I’ve ever made. It could be the best 20 songs I’ve ever made. I don’t know what it’s gonna be yet,” he admitted, pointing out that whatever he ends up releasing, it’ll likely come out via his subscription service, the Nest.

“It’s just a new step in the right direction,” he explained. “You get so much music and it bypasses the distributor, so it’s literally the record label or the musician going straight to the fan. And it’s all content; if I want to put out photo albums, videos, whatever, it just gets straight to the fans without any red tape or bulls— like that. It’s amazing.”

He also alluded to some new remixes and collaborations on the horizon, but don’t expect him to give too much warning whenever he does get around to resurfacing; as he put it, “I like just having those come out. No one anticipates anything and it’s really cool when it just arrives, y’know?”

Kendrick Lamar Raps in Front of the Eiffel Tower in ‘Backseat Freestyle’ Video

Rapper Kendrick Lamar takes us from Compton to Paris, France in his new video for ‘Backseat Freestyle.’ The song appears on K-Dot’s celebrated album ‘good kid, m.A.A.d city.’

Directed by Jerome D, Dave Free and Lamar, himself, the black-and-white visual boasts frenetic shots of K-Dot’s Compton neighborhood and the city of love. In addition, several key characters from his album show up in the clip as well.

Lamar’s cranky father, who, if you remember on the album, was upset that Lamar took his dominoes and never returned them. Also making appearance is the booty-shaking Sherane, the object of the rapper’s affection on the LP — particularly on ‘Poetic Justice.’

At the end of the video, the west coast emcee raps ‘Backseat Freestyle’ behind a glowing backdrop of the Eiffel Tower. Dreams do come true — just ask Kendrick Lamar.

Alicia Keys Finds Freedom in ‘Brand New Me’ Video

Alicia Keys has unveiled the music video for her second ‘Girl on Fire’ single, ‘Brand New Me,’ in which she sets her true self free.

The video shows the superstar brushing off her ex before she sits down at the piano to begin the transformational song. She gets up and eventually faces herself in the mirror, taking off her wig and shedding tears at the realization of who she really is — a strong, independent woman.

According to Keys, the tune has a special place in her heart. “The song #BrandNewMe is my ANTHEM,” she wrote in a Twitter interview with BET’s 106 & Park. “It’s about my personal journey to be a brave woman, artist & MAMA ;- ).”
