Music Video Monday Premieres: Kiesza, Tamar Braxton & One Direction!
Following her breakout singles “Hideaway” and “Giant In My Heart,” Kiesza continues to dance up a storm in the music video for her latest house jam “No Enemiesz”! The 3rd official single off her debut album, Sound of a Woman, is available in the U.S now via Island Records. Directed by Syndrome, the clip sees the Canadian singer-songwriter showing off her rock-hard dancer’s body as she breaks out her fierce moves solo in a Brooklyn loft. As the video progresses, she takes off articles of clothing and they all morph into dancers who join her in her dancing fantasy. Do you love Kiesza as much as I do?
Just in time for the new season of premiere of her show Tamar & Vince on WE TV, Tamar Braxton drops the extravagant music video for “Let Me Know” featuring Future! The track serves as the lead single to her upcoming fourth studio album, which is due out early next year via Sony Music and Streamline Records. Directed by Tamar herself, the clip is mostly just glamorous shots of the “Braxton Family Values” diva turning up the heat and feeling her oats in about a half dozen looks.
One Direction has finally premiered the music video for their latest hit “Steal My Girl“! The track serves as the official lead single off their upcoming fourth studio album FOUR, which is due out on November 17 via Syco and Colombia Records. Directed by Ben Winston, the clip, which was shot in the desert, sees legendary actor Danny DeVito acting as 1D‘s video director who designates each member with a particular expression. Harry, 20, is love. Louis, 22, is danger, Liam, 21, is power, Zayn, 21, is mystery and Niall, 21 is light. To act out their expressions, there’s everything from sumo wrestlers, acrobats, mimes, an even an adorable chimpanzees to help them out.

VIDEO: Pixie Lott Wants To “Wake You Up” (And She Will!)
I love a vocal performance that is jam-packed with heart and soul, and that’s just what Pixie Lott is giving me this morning, with her cover of Avicii‘s “Wake Me Up.” (Is anyone else certifiably obsessed with that song…? I have it on repeat on my Spotify!)
“Been working with my band over the past few months and alongside making new music (coming soon!) we had LOTS of fun recording cover versions of some of our favourite songs from the past year. We filmed them all too… want me to post one today??!! #PixieAtThePool xxx,” she wrote on Facebook.

VIDEO: Virgin America’s New Safety Information Video Will Make You Want To Get Up And Dance (In The Sky)!
Virgin America never ceases to amaze us… and if you’ve ever flown the airline, you’re probably nodding in agreement.
There’s a number of different reasons why I love flying Virgin. For coast-to-coast travel in the U.S., Virgin America is an ferociously fabulous experience (unlike most airlines), featuring purple LED lights and leather seats throughout the cabin, outlets for charging below every seat, oh — and their in-flight entertainment system totally trumps all: you can not only order food and drink right from your seat, but you can also chat with fellow passengers.
The airline made waves in the industry in 2007 when it became the first U.S. airline to feature a cheeky safety video across its fleet (an animated cult classic). Now, they’re taking it to a WHOLE NEW LEVEL, enlisting one of Hollywood’s BLOCKBUSTER film directors Jon M. Chu (from ‘Step Up 2& 3’, ‘GI Joe: Retaliation’ and more), “American Idol” season 9 alum, Todrick Hall, who created the music & lyrics for the video, and “So You Think You Can Dance” stars Cyrus Spencer, Sasha Mallory, Phillip Chbeeb and Marko Germar.
For more on the video and more info on the chance to be cast in a future version of the safety video, keep reading…Read More
