From Elephants Falling Out Of the Sky to Drones Attacking, the 10 Wildest Moments in Camila Cabello’s ‘Liar’ Video

0

Camila Cabello has proven, once again, that she is a music video queen. The «Havana» singer unveiled her amazingly dramatic «Liar» video Thursday (Sept. 12), and it’s another cinematic masterpiece.

The 6-minute clip — directed by Dave Meyers, who also directed the steamy «Señorita» video with Cabello and Shawn Mendes — features Cabello in the middle of a love triangle between billionaire (and total jerk) Reese Kensington and an adoring restaurant bus boy. Cabello’s acting skills shine, as she also portrays a hilariously fiesty Latina talk show host named La Flaca, but it’s the wacky bits of the video that make «Liar» truly great.

When Camila starts choking

By now it’s no secret that Camila Cabello is a great actress, but her fake choking may be her most convincing act yet. As she tries to tell Reese she loves the necklace he gave her (which she clearly doesn’t mean), she begins to choke, and it’s pretty darn believeable — she even turns bright red at one point. Though Camila’s pale near-death face is clearly just makeup, her choking sounds were spot-on.

When Camila and Reese have a high-speed goose chase

Upon waking up next to Reese with the bus boy’s love note in hand, Camila knows she needs to get out of the room quickly. As she speeds through the house, Reese wakes up to find her not there, and goes on a hunt to find her — and thanks to the scene’s high-speed visual effects, it’s quite a rush.

When everything becomes the truth

After Camila admits she hates the swanky restaurant and just wants a cheesburger (relatable, really), everything around her begins to live its truth the way she did. Dead roses come back into bloom; a waiter reveals that the food at the fancy establishment is only 10% natural (not 100%); two men on dates with women begin to make out; a balding guy removes his toupee; a man unveils his sleeve tattoo to his mom; and another waiter reveals he’s a breakdancer — all in a matter of 10 seconds.

When Camila gets squashed by an elephant

Okay, not really. But when Camila initially tells Reese off, she’s met with the first of a few resulting misfortunes — the first in the shape of a massive elephant falling out of the sky. Common occurrence.

When a hoard of bicyclists have a pile-up crash

Another one of Camila’s post-truth disasters involves a pack of cyclists who have a domino-effect crash after she walks into the middle of the street. She even avoided the elephant this time, dang it!

When the drones attack

What’s scarier than a swarm of buzzing bees? Thousands of buzzing drones, apparently. Her third and final truth-telling calamity is in the form of drones, which may be the most horrifying tragedy of them all.

When she sets the mansion ablaze (and barely escapes)

Though Camila has a burning desire to open the note the bus boy gave her, she seems to think that actually burning it is the best way to fight the urge. Of course, it backfires — literally — and suddenly Reese’s massive home goes up in flames. Luckily, she makes it out, but not without some seriously frizzed hair.

When Reese discovers a dildo in Camila’s her purse

After Camila set fire to the mansion, Reese puts her through a lie detector test. He first pulls out the necklace that she has yet to wear, which pains him enough. But once he pulls out a dildo, then he’s just offended. Camila, you go, girl.

When a little birdie brings Camila joy

As if there haven’t been a ton of did-that-really-happen moments already, an animated bird flies into Camila’s room once her «Liar» nightmare ends. Though the bluebird is quite adorable, it’s just another part that makes you wonder if you need to get your eyes checked.

When La Flaca says Camila isn’t that pretty

Camila’s anchor girl alter ego delivers the tea that Camila left a billionaire for a bus boy, and more hilarity ensues between La Flaca and her co-anchors, Gordita and Tammy. But after a handful of lighthearted jabs, La Flaca says, «She’s not really that pretty, is she?» then proceeds to call Camila a 7, to which Gordita says «she’s like a 5.» There’s plenty of outlandish things in the «Liar» video, but c’mon — Camila is a 10!

Louis Tomlinson Rocks Out in Flashy ‘Kill My Mind’ Video: Watchhttps://www.billboard.com/files/styles/1500x992_gallery/public/media/Louis-Tomlinson-may-4-2019-england-billboard-1548.jpg

The guy gets the girl, but how does it end?

Louis Tomlinson is all in on the rock thing in the video for his «Kill My Mind» single. The high-energy clip directed by the aptly named Charlie Lightening (Paul McCartney, Liam Gallagher) that debuted on Friday morning (Sept. 13) finds Liam blazing through the uptempo track in a packed club in front of an enthusiastic audience that includes a particular blonde woman that the camera seems to love.

The live scenes are intercut with images of a man bombing down a country road on a motorcycle, leading one to believe that said road hog might be Louis and the woman might be his video love interest. But that’s where the plot twist comes in, as the man is revealed to be a buzz-cut rider excited to check out a Louis Tom show with his crush. As Tomlinson hypes the crowd with his Gallagher-esque stage moves on the song the former One Direction star co-wrote and co-produced with Jamie Hartman, the couple hop on the man’s bike and take off.

And that’s where the plot twist comes in. Watch the video below to see how it ends, and stick around after the surprise for a sneak preview of Tomlinson’s next chapter in the couple’s love story. «Kill My Mind» is the second song released to date from Tomlinson’s upcoming debut solo album, following the pop ballad «Two of Us.» The release date and title of the album has not yet been announced.

Camila Cabello Sets the Mansion on Fire In Outrageous ‘Liar’ Music Video: Watch

0

There’s something wild about Camila Cabello’s “Liar” music video.

Maybe it’s the elephants dropping from the skies, or the flock of flamingos camped on her property. Or the dozens of identical cyclists who swamp her.

Whatever, it’s hilarious and ridiculous.  And it looks as expensive as her fiance’s tastes.

Directed by Dave Meyers, “Liar” sees Cabello play a range of characters for fun. As the story goes, she’s stuck with a rich douchebag, who she doesn’t really like, and she hates the restaurant he takes her to, and doesn’t dig his folks.

But it’s hard to decipher what’s real and what’s a dream. She’s living a lie. But she does like the waiter, for real.

After setting the mansion on fire, her tales are tested with a polygraph (you know, a lie detector). It’s a wild ride.

“Liar” is the followup to Cabello’s “Shameless,” and she’ll perform it Oct. 12 on Saturday Night Live.

Camila Cabello Shares ‘What Do I Know About Love?’ Teaser Video: Watch

vid must be embedded

Fans have been waiting for details about Camila Cabello’s next album for some time now, and while we still don’t have many, the singer shared a new video on Saturday morning (Aug. 31) that could provide some clues.

Titled «What Do I Know About Love?», the spoken-word video features Cabello waxing poetic about love. «I know when you fall in love, you feel like you’re the first and only two people in the world,» she says. «Every kiss, every touch, every caress is like something you feel nobody has ever felt before. And you think, has everybody that’s ever fallen in love before just walked around this nonchalantly the whole time?»

It’s unclear what exactly she’s teasing with the video, but she does appear to hint at new music, saying, «What I know for sure is falling in love with life itself makes an artist out of everyone. I thought I was making art before. Writing songs was me making art, but now I want my life to be the work of art and my songwriting to be the camera that I take a picture of it with. It’s what I’m living. That’s the art.»

Earlier this week, fans speculated that the «Señorita» singer was teasing a new project after she posted a series of mysterious, burnt orange images to her Instagram. Cabello is slated to perform on Saturday Night Live on Oct. 12.

Check out the «What Do I Know About Love?» video below.

Taylor Swift Performs ‘Lover’ for the First Time During 2019 MTV VMAs Opener After Album Release

0

Taylor Swift is back on the MTV Video Music Awards stage after a four-year hiatus from the awards show!

On Monday, the pop star, 29, kicked off the night with the first-ever performance of her songs “You Need to Calm Down” and “Lover” from her new album Lover, which was released days before on Aug. 23.

The stage at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, transformed into the music video set of “You Need to Calm Down” with Todrick Hall and RuPaul’s Drag Race stars (also in the “You Need to Calm Down” video) joining the stage. Also during the performance, So You Think You Can Dance alum Alex Wong wore pointe shoes after the backlash regarding Good Morning America co-host Lara Spencer’s comment on Prince George doing ballet.

Taylor Swift

Her friends Camila Cabello and Gigi Hadid were spotted in the crowd proudly singing along to Swift’s songs.

Swift wore a custom-made Versace metallic bustier and shorts and Louboutin booties for “You Need to Calm Down” and added a bedazzled purple blazer for her “Lover” performance.

Taylor Swift

The night marked Swift’s VMAs return since 2015 when she performed her song “Bad Blood” — which took home the coveted video of the year trophy that year.

This year, Swift is tied with Ariana Grande for the most nominations this year with 12 total, including video of the year, song of the year and best pop.

“I’m so excited because the video for ‘You Need to Calm Down,’ the video for ‘ME!,’ I wrote the treatment for those videos, so it’s really exciting to be nominated,” she told Good Morning America‘s Robin Roberts on Thursday. “The fans have been so wonderful and like, it’s just … working with my friends, working with people that I love so much in the ‘Calm Down’ video especially, it was just like … seeing that get nominated was really a proud moment for me.”

Taylor Swift

Other music videos already released from the Lover album include “ME!” (costarring Panic at the Disco’s Brendon Urie) and “Lover.”

This year’s show also marks 10 years since Swift was famously interrupted on the VMAs stage by Kanye West during her acceptance speech for best female video winner for “You Belong with Me.”

The 2019 MTV Video Music Awards, hosted by Sebastian Maniscalco, airs on Monday, Aug. 26 at 8 p.m. on MTV.

The Jonas Brothers Go Back to the ’80s in Fun New Music Video for ‘Only Human

0

They’re only human — in the best way!

Complete with disco lights, grainy footage, colorful outfits, and synchronized dancing, the Jonas Brothers went back to the ’80s for their new “Only Human” music video.

The video opens up with the trio on stage, with sunglasses on, surrounded by clubgoers head-bopping to the beat of their hit reggae-pop song. Perfectly edited to mimic a music video produced in the ’80s, the camera zooms in and out of scenes, flipping through colorful lights and footage of the audience shimmying to the music.

During the first chorus, the entire club joins in to sing with Joe Jonas, before the venue is filled with bubbles as Nick Jonas begins his vocals.

They even take the scene outside in an iconic ’80s-esque moment when Joe and Kevin Jonas dance on top of a vintage taxi cab. The clubgoers jog and dance in unison around them.

The music video dropped just one week after the Jonas Brothers kicked off their worldwide Happiness Begins tour on August 7, with a show at the American Airlines Arena in Miami, Florida.

The tour marks their first in nearly a decade and follows their highly anticipated reunion earlier this year. It’ll take them across the U.S., Canada, Mexico, and Europe, before coming to an end in February 2020.

Miley Cyrus Is Back in the Recording Studio After Announcing Split from Husband Liam Hemsworth

0

Could new music from Miley Cyrus be on the way after her split from husband Liam Hemsworth?

On Monday, days after PEOPLE exclusively confirmed her breakup, the singer, 26, shared a selfie from a recording studio on Twitter and Instagram Story that showed her wearing headphones and posing in front of a microphone.

Cyrus, whose most recent single “On a Roll” was released in June, left the photo without a caption but the new image comes after hours after she seemingly broke her silence about the separation on social media Sunday.

Speaking out about how “change is inevitable,” the star shared an empowering message during her Italy trip with her sister Brandi and Kaitlynn Carter, whom the “Mother’s Daughter” hitmaker was spotted kissing over the weekend.

“Don’t fight evolution, because you will never win. Like the mountain I am standing on top of, which was once under water, connected with Africa, change is inevitable,” Cyrus captioned two photos of herself with the picturesque mountain ranges of northeastern Italy in the background.

“The Dolomites were not created over night, it was over millions of years that this magnificent beauty was formed. My dad always told me ‘Nature never hurries but it is always on time’…. it fills my heart with peace and hope KNOWING that is true. I was taught to respect the planet and its process and I am committed to doing the same with my own,” she concluded.

Seven months after tying the knot, Cyrus and Hemsworth, 29, announced their breakup in a statement exclusively to PEOPLE on Saturday.

“Liam and Miley have agreed to separate at this time,” a rep for Cyrus said. “Ever-evolving, changing as partners and individuals, they have decided this is what’s best while they both focus on themselves and careers. They still remain dedicated parents to all of their animals they share while lovingly taking this time apart. Please respect their process and privacy.”

A source tells PEOPLE the couple actually split months prior to the announcement.

Cyrus and Hemsworth, who met in 2009 on the set of The Last Song, had a rocky, on-again, off-again relationship for years before he proposed in 2012.

The two ended their engagement and broke up a year later, before reconciling in 2015. Then in December 2018, they wed during an intimate ceremony at their home in Franklin, Tennessee.

Hours before their announcement, Cyrus shared multiple photos of herself in Italy without her 3.5-carat cushion-cut diamond engagement ring and wedding band.

During her Italian getaway, Cyrus is “just having fun” with the newly single Carter, according to a source who told PEOPLE that the pair has mutual friends in common.

Earlier this month, Carter annnounced her split from husband and The Hillsstar Brody Jenner, whom she wed in 2018. “Brody Jenner and Kaitlynn Carter have decided to amicably separate,” the pair’s reps, Scott Newman and Lindsay Maguire, told PEOPLE. “They love and respect one another, and know that this is the best decision for their relationship moving forward,” the reps added.

At the time, an insider said Jenner and Carter were not legally married as they never made their union official.

Katy Perry Drops New Single ‘Small Talk’ with Lyric Video

0

Katy Perry is over small talk.

The pop star, 34, dropped her newest single on Thursday night with a lyric video for the track, titled “Small Talk,” which is all about the awkward distance that happens between ex-lovers after a breakup.

Perry wrote the song with Jacob Kasher Hindlin, Johan Carlsson and Charlie Puth, with the latter two producing, and Peter Karlsson producing the vocals.

Perry teased the song earlier in the week with a sequence of photos shared on Instagram that included snippets of the song.

The Instagram posts included notes “from the desk of Katy Perry,” that featured lyrics from the song, her second single of 2019.

“Isn’t it weird / That you’ve seen me naked / We had conversations about forever / Now it’s about the weather okay,” read the first lyric.

The second note followed, “Isn’t it wild / That I know your weakness / And everybody at the party thinks / That you’re the best since sliced bread.”

“I just can’t believe / We went from strangers to lovers to / Strangers in a lifetime,” read the third revealing note. A fourth note, posted Wednesday morning, read, “Acting like we never met / Faking like we’d just forget / We were lovers.”

Perry and her collaborators slammed the decision in a statement obtained by Variety.

“The writers of ‘Dark Horse’ view the verdicts as a travesty of justice,” the statement said. “There is no infringement. There was no access of substantial similarity. The only thing in common is unprotectable expression — evenly spaced ‘C’ and ‘B’ notes — repeated. People including musicologists from all over are expressing their dismay over this.

“We will continue to fight at all appropriate levels to rectify the injustice,” the statement concluded, indicating that Perry’s team will likely be appealing the decision.
