Pity the fool who decides to ruin a fairy tale romance with Taylor Swift, because not only do you get banished from the palace — yes, palace — but you also find yourself in serious danger once she unleashes her inner She-Devil.
Michael Jackson's posthumous career moonwalks on with "A Place With No Name," leaning on footage captured at the time of his "In The Closet" video as a way to work him into a new video. Most notably, perhaps, this marked the first ever video premiere on Twitter directly, with the social messaging service hosting it in their own video player.
Shakira may be the pride of Barranquilla, but that doesn't mean she gets a pass from Colombia's unofficial moral police.
Politician Marco Fidel Ramirez is calling on Colombia's National Television Authority to ban the 37-year-old's "Can't Remember To Forget You" clip from being broadcast on any of the nation's channels, saying:
"Our Shakira with her erotic video is promoting tobacco usage and has become the worst example for our youth. Shakira's new video is a shameless case for lesbianism and immorality. It is a danger to children"

Director Joseph Kahn is no stranger to putting two pop starlets on the same screen — see "The Boy Is Mine" which had Brandy and Monica teaming up — and also smart enough to know there's no need for narrative glue when those starlets are more than willing to purr and strut for the camera.
Empire Of The Sun always push the weird needle on-stage and in their videos, but it's all the more striking when you see the blue-spiked dude in the real world. And not so surprising that the cops get called.
Joseph Kahn knows that shooting an artist in the desert makes them look elemental, like capitvating forces of nature. Ciara is raw, uncut starpower (especially when she's inviting us to the gun show) and Kahn showcases her for maximum effect with the camera moving in unique ways that make us feel intoxicated by her dance moves. Plus, adorable dancing kids!!! --> watch "Got Me Good"
