Because humans have devolved to possessing less attention span than goldfish, it stands to reason that our music videos are now films. Or our films are music videos. Or something like that. Last night at the Billboard Music Awards, Taylor Swift premiered her video for “Bad Blood,” her newest single and collaboration with the inimitable Kendrick Lamar – who himself is promoting a new album “To Pimp a Butterfly.” From the perspective of lyricality, the crossover is a curious one, as Lamar continually turns out thought-provoking rhymes while Swift’s milieu is bite-sized, poppy lyrics on a loop. However, we gotta admit the song and video are pretty damn badass. Despite the fact that assassins cum supermodels is a bit of a trope at this point, the vid is great, and Lamar perfectly complements Swift’s choruses, taking the former country girl to the next level.

So whatever about the song, let’s get to the eye candy. This video is so chock-full o’ kick-ass ladies, it was hard to pick a favorite cameo, but here goes. (To be clear, Lamar is not listed as he is a collaborator, ergo would not qualify as a cameo, but his character is Welvin da Great.)

U2 as Street Performers

Source: YouTube.com

After U2 cancelled their week long residency on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon due to Bono’s serious bicycle accident last year, the band recently returned to the show ahead of their iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE Tour. A segment that aired on the episode featured Jimmy Fallon and U2 disguised as street performers as they put on a show at the 42nd Street subway station in Manhattan. At first, the band’s disguises seemed to work a little too well, but as soon as Jimmy Fallon announced who these street performers really were to the small group gathered around, the crowd grew a bit larger.
