Rihanna‘s video for her emotionally naked, sonically spare and incredibly haunting power ballad ‘Stay’ features the singer with a makeup-free face and a naked body as she sits in a tub, soaking and thinking. She doesn’t sing. She makes eye contact a few times, but for the most part, it’s RiRi lost in deep thought.
It’s the bling in her ears, the tattoos on her neck and the lump in her throat that we focus on. It’s the rings on her fingers and the long nails without any lacquer that we pay attention to.
Ri’s topless, but that’s because she’s in the tub, so it’s purposeful nudity.
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
Skylar Grey and Eminem ventured to a trailer park somewhere in Michigan to shoot the music video for their collaboration “C’Mon Let Me Ride.”
The track is the first single from Skylar’s upcoming debut album Don’t Look Down.
Israeli DJ Borgore was smart to recruit Miley Cyrus for his video, since it’s getting tons of press due to her involvement.
There’s a giant cake, which is related to the lyrics about wanting the whole cake, not sharing it and suggesting you learn how to bake. The quirky clip features Borgore rolling down Venice Beach and Hollywood Blvd. and recruits his porn star ex Jessie Andrews. No, Jessie and Miley don’t make out.
But Cyrus does swap spit with her fiance Liam Hemsworth — cover your eyes, Nick Jonas! — who is in a unicorn costume. Her tongue is fully out and she is smeared with cake multiple times. You also get a look at Miley’s boobage at the 3:06 mark.
Lana Del Rey has unveiled the video for her latest single, ‘Ride,’ offering fans an epic mini-movie focused on a fictionalized version of the sultry singer.
