Lana Del Rey’s new video is a love story set in outer space

0

Lana Del Rey just released a new video for her track “Love,” the first single off her upcoming fifth studio album. The clip, directed by Rich Lee, tells a pretty average love story (boy and girl ride off into the sunset in their vintage car) before trading in the video’s initial West Coast setting for outer space.

While most of Del Rey’s videos tend to rely on the drama of the terrestrial Earth —whether it’s a dusty open road or a rocky beach — she has previously discussed her interest in the extraterrestrial. In an interview with Zane Lowe on Beats 1 last year, LDR said she admired Elon Musk for pushing SpaceX into new territory. “Technologically, we’re advancing so quickly, I don’t want to miss any of it,” she said. “I feel like we’re on the cusp just the way they were in the ‘60s, but in a different way.”

In a statement about the video, she said, «I made my first four albums for me, but this one is for my fans and about where I hope we are all headed,» according to Rolling Stone. I guess she hopes we’re all headed somewhere with a little less gravity.

This Year’s Met Gala Will Be Co-Chaired By

0

The 2017 Met Gala theme has been announced. The focus will be on Comme des Garçons’s designer Rei Kawakubo, which is pretty crazy in and of itself. This makes Kawakubo only the second living designer to be honored at the annual exhibit, following Yves Saint Laurent in 1983. Since Comme des Garçons is known not only for avant-garde looks that shape the figure in dramatic ways, but also for iconic street style items, the event calls for some experimental co-chairs.

According to People, Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen will co-chair the event, which they’ve been attending since 2008. Anna Wintour will be hosting alongside Katy Perry and Pharrell, who worked on a perfume with Comme des Garçons for his Girlalbum in 2014. Read on for a quick preview of what we expect to see on May 1 when the gallery doors are finally opened and the red carpet rolls out.

Jennifer Lopez Talks Drake & Dating Younger Men on ‘Ellen’

0

Things got juicy yesterday when Jennifer Lopez stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show Tuesday (Feb. 21). Amidst the discussion — which touched on J. Lo’s Las Vegas residency and the possibility of performing at the next Super Bowl — her rumored romance with Drake came into play.

Last December, an Instagram photocreated waves as people speculated on the possibility that Lopez and the Toronto rapper were dating. Later, the two were seen kissing while promoting a potential collaboration. Obviously DeGeneres couldn’t help asking: Did they really work on a song together?

“Actually, he sent me a song that he wanted me to be on, and I got on the song,» J. Lo explained. «Yeah, we have a song together. I don’t know what he’s going to do with it, but yeah.”

It didn’t technically confirm that they aren’t dating, however. Lopez has dated other younger men in the past — for example, on-and-off love (and her backup dancer) Casper Smart — which the host also briefly touches on. Yet, J. Lo asserted age has nothing to do with it.

“I don’t date younger men. It’s not like you have to be younger. It’s not about that,” the singer said. “I just meet people and if I go out with them, I got out with them. And if I like them and I like them. If I don’t, I don’t. It’s about the person. It’s about who they are. It has nothing to do with age.”

Katy Perry Goes Back to the Future in ‘Chained to the Rhythm’ Music Video

The video was directed by Mathew Cullen and filmed at Six Flags Magic Mountain in California in January.

Katy Perry opened the gates to her space-age fun park in the video for her latest single, «Chained to the Rhythm.»Wearing a Judy Jetson-worthy white metallic dress and sporting bright pink hair, Perry is seen walking though the gates of the happiest place on Earth, where cotton candy is served in portions the size of giant umbrellas.The video was directed by Mathew Cullen (Jay Z, Taylor Swift) and filmed at Six Flags Magic Mountain in California in January. In it, as during her Grammy Awards performance of the song, Perry drops a number of not-so-subtle hints about her feelings about the current political climate in the nation. The first taste is a ride called «The Great American Dream Drop,» in which a loving couple snuggle into a tiny house that gets swung around in the air and then violently plunged toward the ground.

The tall white fence from her Grammys performance makes a cameo (with the words «safe trip home» painted on it in blue), as a park visitor is catapulted over it. The dystopian park also has such other not-so-fun attractions as flaming glasses of blue «Inferno H2O,» a tainted liquid that makes patrons belch fire and a hamster wheel attraction that is impossible to keep up with.

Near the end, Perry is swept up in a giant dance number after Skip Marley jumps out of a 3D movie to rap his cameo, which leads to a the final shot: her worried face staring into the camera in a moment of fear-filled awakening.
