You know how people say you should never get your significant other's name tattooed on you? Maybe that advice should also extend to making a music video together... because with the internet, music videos kind of are forever. So here's a list of 5 celebrity couples who have made a music video together — and then subsequently broke up.
John Mayer and Katy Perry
John Mayer and Katy Perry's recent breakup was actually the catalyst for this list, given that they only just released their collaboration last year. John and Katy recorded the song "Who You Love" for John Mayer's most recent album, "Paradise." But shortly after their video was released, racking up 15 million views on VEVO, they broke up. Oops.
Please note: Although the video contains ONLY Emojis, this is possibly not safe for work... which is why we posted it on the weekend.
A new version of Beyonce and Jay Z's music video, "Drunk In Love," is perfect for those of us who tend to over-use Emojis when we're texting our friends. A man named Jesse Hill created this video, which uses Emojis to visually explain the song lyrics. It's so creative and fun that Beyonce actually posted the video on her Facebook page and said, "Love this!!"
What do you think?
March is Women's History Month, so across the world, people are celebrating awesome ladies! On our Facebook page, we recently asked people to share some of their favorite female singers. The answers varied, from P!nk to Amy Lee to Ann Wilson.
While it would be impossible to compile a list of the BEST female singers and then try to rank them, I am more than comfortable picking a few great female singers who deserve to be recognized for all they've done. Here are 5 powerhouses music owes a debt of gratitude!
Cher, who has earned the nickname Goddess of Pop, first emerged on the scene in 1965 when she and her husband, Sonny Bono, rose to fame. Through the years, she established herself as a singer in her own right, and even went on to have several Broadway and acting gigs. Cher has had incredibly successful hit singles, including early tunes like "Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)" and "Dark Lady," and later songs like "If I Could Turn Back Time" and "Believe."
Did you catch the awards show last night? In case you missed it: Ellen DeGeneres played host; Jennifer Lawrence fell on the way into the venue; there was plenty of selfie-taking (including this gem); and we got to see A-list actors eat pizza. Oh, plus a bunch of awards were given out or whatever.
So that pretty much catches you up to speed on the ceremony portion. But in addition to that, there were several musical performances. While music may seem out of place at an award show created strictly to pay homage to the film industry, most of the performances were actually of the songs nominated for "Best Original Song." There was also an impromptu number by Darlene Love and an "In Memoriam" tribute. Here are the top 3 from last night's show:
Pharrell and his infamous hat kicked off the evening's performances. "Happy," which was on the "Despicable Me 2" soundtrack, is a fun, upbeat song that received an equally fun and upbeat performance by Pharrell. It featured a bunch of young kids dancing around onstage; Pharrell himself ventured into the audience and brought some of the A-listers to their feet, including Lupita N'yongo, Amy Adams, and Meryl Streep. Plus: we can't forget the minions on the giant screen at the back of the stage. Cute!
Pop stars Shakira and Rihanna made headlines recently when they teamed up for a duet, "Can't Remember to Forget You," and a subsequently racy video to go along with it. Recently, fellow singers Lady Gaga and Christina Aguilera teamed up for a remix of Gaga's single "Do What U Want." I'm all about duets between female pop stars because I think it rails against the idea that two women doing similar things must automatically be in competition with one another &mdahs; and because the songs are always so good. Here are 5 other duets we should celebrate, in honor of Shakira/Rihanna and Gaga/Christina!
