Cups Runneth Over In New 'Holy Grail' Video
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Jay Z glides through a dilapidated home and Justin Timberlake croons in front of a blazing vehicle in their new video for "Holy Grail," the opening track from the rapper's "Magna Carta Holy Grail." The song receives a slight rearrangement in the clip, which slows down the Nirvana-inspired bridge and places Timberlake's soulful intro right before Jay's second verse. "Holy Grail" premiered Thursday on Facebook, just a few weeks after Jay Z's 11-minute "Picasso Baby" performance-art video debuted on HBO. The song marks the lead single from the rapper's album, even though "Picasso" nabbed its first clip. "Grail" was directed by Anthony Mandler, who has helmed videos for Beyonce, Rihanna and Taylor Swift. Even if Timberlake and Jay Z never appear in the same frame, cups certainly runneth over by the song's end. The moody video strives for elegance and, at the hands of these two superstars, seems to achieve it. Check it out and determine whether the "Magna Carta" standout ho ...

Fun. Tease 'Some Nights' Video Ahead Of MTV Premiere
MTV News - over 4 years
Band will perform at MTV Movie Awards on Sunday, along with Wiz Khalifa and Black Keys. By James Montgomery Nate Ruess Photo: Fueled by Ramen Two months ago, Fun. promised that their upcoming video for "Some Nights" would be "amazing," then followed up that claim by teasing that the clip featured (and also xylophones). And now, after all that talk, we are finally getting our first glimpse at the video (which premieres Monday, June 4, at 3:55 p.m. on MTV) — thanks to a teaser clip posted by the band's label, Fueled by Ramen — and it looks like Fun.'s claims were warranted. In the 30-second clip, we see Fun. performing amidst a Civil War battlefield, as flares erupt in the distance and Union and Confederate soldiers take aim at one another (said xylophone does not make an appearance). Directed by Anthony Mandler — who's made a career out of helming eye-catching clips for the likes of Rihanna, Jay-Z, Drake and the Killers — the "Some Nights" video appears to be a w ...

New Video: Nicki Minaj, 'Starships'
MTV News - almost 5 years
Nicki Minaj gets wet and wild in her new 'Starships' video. Let's just call a spade a spade here, people: Nicki Minaj's "Starships" video makes absolutely no sense. If starships are really meant to fly (according to Wikipedia, they are, and through space!), then why did Nicki choose to have a tribal body paint party on the beach for her video? Who knows, but it really doesn't matter. The important thing here is that we'll all be on egg white and protein shake diets for the next three months trying to replicate Nicki's absolutely bananas figure. WHAT EVEN, I CAN'T. Watch Nicki Minaj's "Starships" video after the jump. Directed by Anthony Mandler (Rihanna, Drake), "Starships" is super pretty to look at. There's the hyper-pigmented greenery along the beach, the vivid DayGlo body paint everyone at the orgy beach party ends up wearing, and not to mention Nicki's pink bikini, which is like, painted on. But as far as a plot goes, eh, let's save that for next time, Nicki. "Starshi ...
