21st Century Flop
I like the part where Cicely Tyson screams at the beginning of Willow Smith's "21st Century Girl" video—you know, like the Roc Nation bean counters are doing when comparing the budget of the clip to the fact that the song is only #165 on iTunes.

I've been maintaining that "Inside Out" is the best one of the half dozen Britney Spears Femme Fatale song snippets to pop up in recent weeks, and this lengthier clip that leaked yesterday just goes to prove it.
Blow My Speakers Up
Avril Lavigne covering Ke$ha for Radio 1 Live Lounge is good stuff. Quote from Avril's Billboard interview about her new album, which is out now: "I found myself in a situation on my fourth record with a bunch of people at the label who I didn't know, and they're coming in on my project and saying, 'Here's what we think you need to do for your record,' and giving me their vision. And radio's so rhythmic/dance-driven right now, and that's not where I was going with this record. So I had to fight and say no, but… I ultimately made the record I wanted to."
