‘Ashtrays & Heartbreaks’ Music Video – Snoop Lion feat. Miley Cyrus

The artist formerly known as Snoop Dogg returns with a new reggae-influenced album. For the album’s first single Snoop teams up with former Disney princess turned badass singer bitch Miley Cyrus for a pop-reggae radio jam.

The music video has just been released and has some sort weird reflection theme going on where you can only see Snoop and Miley in glass, puddles or clouds of smoke. Not really as inspiring as we would have hoped. Seems like they blew the whole budget on some super expensive slow-mo cameras. The footage is pretty but doesn’t seem to fit with the song.

Ke$ha – ‘Crazy Kids’ Music Video

Ke$ha - Crazy Kids Music Video

Ke$ha – ‘Crazy Kids’ Music Video

Ke$ha has just released the video for her latest single “Crazy Kids”, from the grossly underrated album Warrior, and it is a gloriously ratchet hot mess!

In the video, Ke$ha sports some trashy white-people cornrows and plenty of cheap bling (think James Franco in Spring Breakers), and dances poolside with some old dudes and plenty of alcohol. As far as Ke$ha videos go, this is pretty much what we’ve grown to expect from her – trashy parties, beards, booze and a touch of illuminati. What I love about this video in particular is that my girl K$ actually looks… clean! It’s awesome.

Crazy Kids is the third single to come from Warrior, and I have to say, it’s a real shame the album didn’t do better than it did, because it really was a solid pop album. The biggest downside of Warrior‘s underperformance is that Ke$ha’s label is now adding guests to her singles in an attempt to boost sales. The result: one of the worst raps in a pop song this decade courtesy of notorious plagiarist Will.I.Am.

Apart from the unfortunate appearance of one of pop music’s most notorious rent-a-rappers (hey, things could be worse, it could be Flo-Rida), I really like the video for Crazy Kids – it’s wild, fun, strange, and everything that I love about Ke$ha.

Check out the video below and let us know what you think.
