    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.

    If I've said it once, I've said it a thousand times: Katy Perry is a godless heathen. I knew it the minute I read that she asked the good Lord for a giant pair of titties. "God," she prayed, and keep in mind I'm quoting her sinful words directly, "Will you please let me have boobs so big that I can't see my feet when I'm lying down?" And you know who answered that prayer? SATAN. Because good girls don't ask for extra-large dirtypillows, and that's a fact.

    Thankfully, folks have finally come around to my point of view, which is that Katy Perry worships the dark arts through her disrespectful, sacrilegious music. Particularly her song "Dark Horse," which not only contains soul-tarnishing lyrics, its accompanying video is clearly, as the well-deserved Change.org petition puts it, "Highly controversial to its viewers as a result of its portrayal of blasphemy."

    Have you heard of the musical duo who go by the name 2CELLOS? Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser are Croatian cellists who shot into Internet viral stardom back in 2011, when they uploaded a YouTube video of their cello-only cover of Michael Jackson's "Smooth Criminal." They've gone on to perform a fantastic variety of cover songs by U2, Guns N' Roses, Nine Inch Nails, Sting, Coldplay, Nirvana, Muse, Kings of Leon, and more.

    2CELLOS is back in the news this week thanks to their just-released, brain-melting cover of AC/DC's "Thunderstruck." Even if you're not much of an AC/DC fan, I can almost guarantee this amazing video will send your jaw crashing to the floor.

    (Also, not to be a dirty old lady or anything, but … it doesn't exactly hurt the enjoyment factor that Luka and Stjepan are seriously easy on the eyes.)

    Well, this is kind of odd. Would you believe that Kristen Stewart is in Nashville directing a music video this week? Yes ... I said directing a music video. As in she apparently has mad skills that go way beyond lighting up the big screen.

    Photos of her filming with the band, Sage + the Saints, turned up on Twitter -- and she really does look like she's all serious and living in the moment.

    Oh, and Sage is a good friend of hers, so it shouldn't come as a surprise that she asked Kristen to direct this vid since it's something she's obviously interested in.

    Nothing says “I need to raise capital to send my daughter to rehab soon” like a dub-step remake of “Achy Breaky Heart.” At least that’s what I’m taking away from Billy Ray Cyrus’ new hip-hop version of his kitschy country song from way back before Hannah Montana was even a gleam in Disney’s eye.

    For some reason, Larry King opens up the video to announce a UFO sighting or something, and then all of a sudden we’re transported with Billy Ray and rapper Buck 22 (who?) inside a spaceship full of hot nearly naked, booty-shaking aliens.

    You probably think there's no possible way you could sit through yet another version of Miley Cyrus's "Wrecking Ball" video, right? I mean, Christ, it's been done to death. Some of remakes have been ingenious (Steve Kardynal's Chatroulette performance), some have just been kind of baffling (a Minecraft version? Really?), and some are downright awkward (oh, honey ... no). It seems like the last thing the world needed was one more take on Miley's unlikely iconic hit ... and yet just like Jello, there's always room for Ron Jeremy.

    As in Ron "The Hedgehog" Jeremy, famed porn star who has appeared in more than 2,000 adult films. He re-did "Wrecking Ball" shot-for-shot down to the teary closeups, mallet-licks, and pantsless ball-riding -- and seeing all of this in high-definition is pretty much exactly as delightfully horrific as you'd think it would be. Plus, he actually sings the ENTIRE THING.

    We all know Kanye West is a genius and a god. Because he tells us so. But even geniuses and gods need a little help once in awhile. Or maybe a lot of help. Which is cool if, like, you admit that you need help. The first step is admitting it, people. But Kanye's genius on "Bound 2," according to a lawsuit, is alleged to be someone else's genius. So the god is getting sued.

    A former child singer named Ricky Spicer says he was stunned when he heard "Bound 2" and realized -- he was the star of it! The main part of the song, the high-pitched wailing of Boooooound to faaaaalllllll in looooove he says is, well HIM. And he alleges that nobody done give him no credit or money or nothing! So he called up some lawyers. SMH.

    People who aren't fans of country music tend to think all of the tracks are twangy odes to drinkin', women, dancin', drivin' (typically Chevys, Silverados, or just a generic pick-up truck), and romancin' by a river under the moonlight. Meanwhile, those who are fans of country music might have to agree -- begrudgingly -- that A LOT of the most popular country tunes are the same old crap over and over again! (Not that it's not fun-to-listen-to crap on occasion.)

    And that's exactly what EW country music writer Grady Smith was trying to say by making a really funny, on-point supercut of some of 2013's biggest country music tracks. He fully admits he was inspired to make it after naming the 10 Best Country Albums of 2013 and fielding commenters' complaints that his choices weren't mainstream enough. Well, here's the problem with the top 40, radio faves ...
