Don’t Miss Nicki Minaj’s “Anaconda” video!

Nicki Minaj "Anaconda"

Every summer, there's always one song that I can single out as "the worst". This year, that honor went to Jason Derulo for "Wiggle," a song that makes me grind my teeth into powder. Jason has always been the king of hooks that annoyed me to no end, but "Wiggle" holds a special place in my heart for having a hook that's simultaneously irritating, childish and lecherous. Patton Oswalt has this great bit about how G-rated filth is infinitely MORE

Taylor Swift has decided to “Shake It Off”

Jessica Simpson

All right, full disclosure: While I will occasionally rag on Taylor Swift for some of her dumber moves, I actually really like most of her music. What? She has a good voice and she knows how to write catchy songs. Yes, as much as I like to buff my indie credibility, I will always have a soft spot for fluffy top forty stuff. That being said, Taylor has a new single out (the first cut from her just announced new album, 1989) called "Shake It Off" MORE

Watch: Ariana Grande’s “Break Free” video with Zedd!

Ariana Grande "Break Free"

Ariana Grande makes me feel old, I'm just going to say this right now. It's not just that she's younger than me (although that's part of it) or that she speaks in the baby voice (although that's part of it). What it comes down to is that she's a major pop star that sprang up, and made me go "Wait, who's that young whippernsnapper what done the Nickelodeon show?" I'm old. It's official now. I used to be cool ... anyway, all that aside, I do love MORE

Watch: Sinéad O’Connor’s “Take Me To Church”

Sinéad O'Connor "Take Me To Church"

Everyone should know by now how much I love Sinéad O'Connor ... this goes back many years–to when she first hit the music scene back in 1987 (I was eleven, she was twenty) with her incredible debut album, The Lion and the Cobra (that still seriously holds up today–almost two decades later). Over the years the controversial Irish singer / songwriter (now 47) has had her fair share of ups and downs (that's putting it lightly) yet right now MORE

Pandora Boxx releases her new song + video … “Different!”

Pandora Boxx

It's been far too long since we featured Drag Race alum Pandora Boxx here on PopBytes, so let's rectify that, shall we? Pandy just released a brand-new music video for her latest single, "Different" (iTunes) and she … looks … STUNNING. I mean, the song is great and the video is pretty kickass, but that golden dress with the hood is incredible. I've always loved her aesthetic, but she's really upped her glamour game as of recent. Gorgeous. MORE

Song of the Summer … Katy Perry’s #ThisIsHowWeDo?

Katy Perry "This Is How We Do"

I kept wondering when Katy Perry would get around to releasing "This Is How We Do" as a single off Prism–months ago when I first heard the upbeat track, hit was written all over it plus I felt it had strong potential to compete for the coveted title of pop song of the summer. Last week "This Is How We Do" finally got the music video treatment (after becoming Prism's fifth official single) and it's so much fun–a perfectly mixed bag of colorful MORE

Watch: Tori Amos’ touching “Promise” video

Tori Amos and Tash

I've been on a big Tori Amos kick as of late, not only did she release a stellar new album, Unrepentant Geraldines (iTunes), I recently caught her spectacular show here in Los Angeles at the Greek a few weeks ago. As most of you know, Ms. Amos is hands down my favorite musician, having been a huge fan since the release of Little Earthquakes back in '91. This past week Tori dropped a music video for the duet "Promise" off the new album and MORE

Watch: Janelle Monáe’s video for “Electric Lady”

Janelle Monáe "Electric Lady"

The only stories today are all about either Justin Bieber getting the punch he deserves, or Sharknado 2 (sadly, nothing about Justin getting punched by a Sharknado though). So to break things up, here's the music video for Janelle Monáe's new single, "Electric Lady." Super catchy song, super fun video, and it's something nice to have playing in a separate tab while you wade through this day of wind-based shark attacks and damaged Canadians. MORE

Watch: Lily Allen’s “As Long As I Got You”

Lily Allen "As Long As I Got You"

Here's the latest music video from my British darling Lily Allen for "As Long As I Got You," which was filmed at this year's Glastonbury Festival. The super catchy song serves as the latest single off Lily's spectacular and brilliantly cheeky third studio album, Sheezus (iTunes)–which is easily going to be my top favorite album of 2014. However, I will say that Sia is seriously giving Ms. Allen a run for her money with the recent release of her MORE

Lily Allen drops her “URL Badman” video!

Lily Allen "URL Badman"

I'm so totally down with Lily Allen's new album, Sheezus (iTunes), which is easily my favorite album of the year so far. Even though it took girlfriend forever to drop her third studio album, Sheezus turned out to be well worth the wait. Here's Lily's latest music video for "URL Badman," not my top cut off the album (that would go to "Insincerely Yours or "Hard Out Here"), but it's still a great song, and that Lily is just so damn adorable and MORE

It’s Adore Delano’s “Party”

Adore Delano "Party"

a href="http://popbytes.com/tag/adore-delano/"> Drag Race alum Adore Delano has really been cranking out new music videos at a pretty decent pace now, which I love because her album, Til Death Do Us Party (iTunes), is really good. So here's her third video in about a month and a half, "Party," which finds her doing sweet Alice In Wonderland realness with pinatas, cake, and weirdly muscular clowns. MORE

Why did Lady Gaga axe her video with R. Kelly?

Lady Gaga

A few months back, Lady Gaga was all set and ready to release the music video for her single with R. Kelly, ARTPOP's "Do What U Want." But wouldn't you know it, this happened to coincide with a scathing report on how R. Kelly was systematically targeting young black women, and the video (catch a thirty-second clip below) just sort of disappeared while Gaga tweeted some vague, cryptic things about betrayal or art or whatever. Well, now Page Six is MORE

Stockholm: Chrissie Hynde’s stellar solo debut album!

Chrissie Hynde

It's hard to believe The Pretenders were rocking out back in 1978—when I was just two-years-old! Their first big success came with the release of their third single, "Brass In Pocket," which reached number one in the UK and Australia and topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart at #14 here in the states. That was only the beginning, as the band is still officially a thing (their last album Break Up the Concrete was released back in 2008, 30 years MORE

Alaska Thunderf*ck thinks “Your Makeup Is Terrible”

Alaska Thunderfuck

Look, I'll be blunt here: There are no words to describe the majestic beauty of this music video. None whatsoever. Because this sh!t is amazing and I don't want to sully it with my thinking. All I'm going to say is that "this face is my ID, motherf*cker!" has entered my lexicon and my dream is for Drag Race alum Alaska Thunderf*ck to one day tell me that my makeup is terrible. MORE
