    Recently I was in the car when Maroon 5's latest single 'Animals' came on, and I thought, whoa, that is one naughty song -- I like it! I may not be a fan of Adam Levine personally, but his music is catchy, mmmkay? I like Maroon 5.

    However, I am not a fan of this creeptastic music video for "Animals," and I dare say it may have ruined the song for me. Instead of being about the animalistic side of love, or even the toxic draw of some dysfunctional relationships, it's about ... actually butchering animals. Plus Levine plays a stalker worthy of America's Most Wanted as he follows and photographs a chick played by his real-life wife, Behati Prinsloo.

    You've seen Nicki Minaj's "Anaconda" video, right? I'm not implying you should have seen it because it's, like, an impressive artistic achievement or whatever, but I'm assuming you've been unable to avoid it. I myself have watched it many, many times, although the version I prefer has been edited to replace Minaj's music with fart noises.

    While a salacious music video in which over two minutes of semi-NSFW content has been dubbed with a variety of farts is pretty awesome, Ellen DeGeneres has topped this by digitally inserting herself into Minaj's original production, acid-washed jorts and all. Any time Ellen dances, it makes me happy, but there's something particularly fantastic about seeing Ellen awkwardly twerking while Minaj jiggles her butt

    We're used to seeing Kristen Stewart in guyswear, but this takes it to a whole 'nother level. In a video for Jenny Lewis' new song, "Just One of the Guys," actresses Stewart, Anne Hathaway, and Brie Larson dress up in drag. All three beautiful women are total dudes, with mustaches and baseball caps and poses -- yo, that's what makes a guy a guy, right? No?

    Well, we think you'll have to see how they look and judge for yourself. Are KStew, Anne, and Brie too pretty and feminine to be one of the guys?

    It's a Destiny's Child reunion! That's right -- one of our all-time fave girl groups got together again for a new song that's bound to make your ears happy. Michelle Williams drafted her former band mates Beyonce Knowles and Kelly Rowland for her song "Say Yes" off her upcoming album Journey to Freedom, out September 9.

    The track is an inspirational and uplifting Jesus jam that you just can't help but want to dance along with. The girls all croon, "When Jesus say yes, nobody can say no," and remind us why we fell in love with them in the first place. They all have fantastic voices individually and together -- plus, they're just so dang fun to watch. You can tell they're having a total blast.

    Have you heard Eminem's song "Headlights" off his new-ish album, The Marshall Mathers LP 2? It's about his dysfunctional relationship with his mother, Debbie Mathers, but unlike most of the other songs in his discography that have ripped her a new one (one example lyric of many: "But how dare you try to take what you didn't help me to get / You selfish b***; I hope you f***king burn in hell for this s***"), this one's essentially an open apology … and the Spike Lee-directed video takes things even further with a story that seems to take a major step towards reconciliation. (Or at least forgiveness.)

    It's a powerful video, really. Raw and honest and the sort of thing that delivers a gut-punch to anyone with family issues, however different they may be. Oh, and here's something interesting: Eminem released it on Mother's Day.

    There are some people who are naturally magnetic, who possess a star quality that makes others want to pay attention. And then there are people who go to great lengths to get attention. The latter, often feels unauthentic, contrived, annoying. That's how I'm feeling about the band ADAM who just released (perhaps in a few different ways) a new music video for their song Go to Go.

    The video features the members of the all-female Dutch band having an orgasm as they sing. Yeah.

    "An embarrassment in any language." "A grating earworm that squeezes Gwen Stefani's Japan fetishization into an even more unseemly package." "So awful it reaches some kind of like next plateau of terribleness." These are just a few of the not-so-glowing reviews for Avril Lavigne's new "Hello Kitty" video, which has received so much backlash the video was yanked from YouTube the same day it was posted.

    Lavigne has issued no official comment on the video's removal yet, but the outcry isn't just about the dubious entertainment quality of the video -- it has to do with what some are perceiving as outright racism.

    You probably never guessed that she had any sort of acting skills, but just wait until you see Maci Bookout starring in her first music video. In the vid for "Emma's Song" by The Instigator, Maci plays a mom who is waiting on her daughter's father to show up at her birthday party.

    But since he's a total deadbeat and drug addict, he doesn't have time to be a dad, which leaves Maci's character and her little girl devastated.

    It's a little dark and sad to watch because of the story (especially during the child's nightmare at the end) -- but I think you'll probably agree that Maci does a great job in her role.

    Psst, is it time for your mid-afternoon break? Maybe you need a little pick-me-up of the cocktail variety? Well, I can't pour you a martini from here, but I've got a cocktail-fueled treat. You have to see this video for Beyoncé's song "Drunk in Love" -- done in emoji. ALL OF IT! It's so adorable I can hardly write words -- I just want to load up this post with little pictures of hands clapping and girls in pink going all heart-eyed.

    Those of you who don't know what "emoji" are: Hey, it's all right -- you're not alone! They're these cute little images you can insert into text messages, kind of like advanced emoticons. I'm not doing a very good job of making this video sound not cheesy. It's not, I swear! Okay, it's a little bit cheesy. But in a way you'll love. Just check it out.

    Here's something you simply can't imagine until you actually see and hear it for yourself -- Bruce Springsteen, 64, singing teen sensation Lorde's song "Royals." Fans in Auckland, New Zealand, were there to witness the odd feat first-hand at his concert this weekend

    With guitar in hand, "The Boss" kicked off the show with it. For the most part, he stuck to the lyrics, but made a few adjustments, such as subbing in, "you can call me king bee." In the crowd, you can hear a mix of laughter, cheers, and seeming bewilderment as to if he was really doing this. But he did, and it was ... Interesting. Watch for yourself and see what you think.
