Common adds his two cents to Jay-Z's spontaneous jam, "Open Letter Part 2."
Sometimes it feels like sensationalist media is out to get musicians no matter what they do. Following Jay-Z and Beyoncé's anniversary trip to Havana, the media responded with all sorts of critical reports referring to the couple as "American Royalty" (since, well, it's kinda illegal for Americans to tour Cuba). After his trip abroad, Hov reacted immediately by recording "Open Letter" to answer all of that loose talk. And Common, being the good friend he is (not a G.O.O.D. Music reference, but it easily could be), decided to hop on the track to throw support behind Jay on "Open Letter Part 2."

Joe Jonas enjoys a cold treat at the 2013 Coachella Valley Music And Arts Festival.
It would be a major understatement to say that this past weekend was busy. Not only did we lose our minds over Selena Gomez and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis dominating the 2013 MTV Movie Awards, but just an hour or so away, the 2013 Coachella Valley Music And Arts Festival (aka Coachella) was in FULL swing! While our viewing duties kept us mostly at #Couchella rather than #Coachella, some of our favorite celebs like Katy Perry, Joe Jonas, and Jared Leto were on hand to spend a few days among the musical mayhem and festival fashionistas. And since we couldn't be there ourselves, it's time to
live vicariously through scroll through photos of our favorite celebs at Coachella! No holograms, the real versions.

Medina describes an addictive love in Wolfgang Gartner's "Overdose" video.
Electro house producer/DJ Wolfgang Gartner is probably juuuust heading back from Coachella (or maybe he's still sleeping off that three-day party). But before packing his bags for California, Wolfgang dropped a new brand-video for "Overdose," featuring Danish singer Medina. The busy, dizzying clip has Medina doing most of the heavy lifting while a cadre of dancers WERQUE and experience gravity shifts in a series of metallic rooms. Wait, is Coachella still happening? 'Cause "Overdose" looks how we think Coachella feels.

Frank Ocean invites us on tour in his latest "Lost" video.
Frank Ocean has had a whirlwind year and a half: Not only did he perform (and win!) at the 2013 Grammys, but Frank also made hip-hop history by publishing a brave letter explaining his sexuality, and of course, danced with Taylor Swift (our ultimate goal in life). It's a lot to digest if you read about each item individually, but lucky for us, Frank made a compelling visual travel diary of his last few months for "Lost," his latest clip from the critically acclaimed channel ORANGE. And in just a few short minutes, dude has collected more stamps in his passport than we probably will in our whole life.

Congrats, Sheerios! Ed is officially the 2013 MTV News Musical March Madness champ!
Wow. After 40 million votes were tabulated, two voting servers overloaded, and 64 rabid fan armies competed (you guys, 65,899,660 people voted for Barack Obama in 2012, which... probably means something significant if you wanna spend today thinking about politics and pop culture, but ED SHEERAN!), we can finally lift Ed Sheeran's hand high and officially declare him the winner of MTV News' 2013 Musical March Madness tournament! When we say that we are stunned, we mean it, because the Sheerios upset both Thirty Second To Mars' Echelon AND Tokio Hotel's Aliens. Taking on just one of those bands is difficult enough, but Ed Sheeran's fans managed to topple both of them?! Dayum, Sheerios. Y'all crazy! Maybe since all you Sheerios worked so hard, Ed will get that second album out a wee bit faster for y'all. (Meanwhile, we're still working on that Best Redhead category at the MTV Movie Awards for you.)
And look Echelon, Aliens, and all the other very devoted and deserving fan armies: Take this as a learning experience. Next year, you guys will rally and vote 10 times as hard. But as for the remaining 11 months till next time, be sure to play nice. 'Cause sore loser is NEVER a good look, but winner is ALWAYS in style. And remember: It's just a game. We brought enough cupcakes for the whole class, so everyone just return to your seats, play nice, and be happy for Ed Sheeran.

Pusha talks BIG figures on his latest song, "Numbers On The Boards."
Oh, to be in the G.O.O.D. Music family. Can you imagine what it'd be like to have Kanye West as a boss? Minus all the hard work (he's probably a teensy bit demanding), it's probably caviar every morning, champagne every night, and every super producer on speed dial (no wonder Big Sean makes songs about never leaving the fold). Pusha T must also realize how good he has it, because not only did Kanye end his social media embargo to tweet about "Numbers On The Boards," from Pusha's forthcoming My Name Is My Name, but 'Ye ALSO coproduced the track. Welcome to the "Good Life," indeed.

We spend a lot of time thinking about crushes here at Buzzworthy, but RARELY do our daydreams end up in nightmare territory. Obviously all bets are off, however, in a round of "F***, Marry, Kill," aka that game where you choose someone to eff, marry, or kill in a lineup of three dudes/gals (all ranging in desirability). And speaking of scary, "Scary Movie 5" star Ashley Tisdale put on a brave face for her own 2013 MTV Movie Awards-themed game of "F***, Marry, Kill" with MTV After Hours' Josh Horowitz, where she chose between horror movie characters and famous vampires (we're talking along the lines of Freddy Krueger and Dracula). Clearly Ashley had given this matter some thought, as she wisely elected to marry Edward Cullen aka Robert Pattinson (GET IN LINE), kill a zombie, and f*** a certain chocolate cereal mascot. (Sounds kinky. At least Nosferatu didn't make the list.)
Miguel and Kendrick Lamar have a tipsy night in "How Many Drinks? (Remix)."
Neo-soul singer Miguel's second album, Kaleidoscope Dream, was released around the same time last fall as Kendrick Lamar's sophomore disc, Good Kid, m.A.A.d City, so it almost feels serendipitous that these two breakthrough artists of 2012 would collabo. On his latest single, "How Many Drinks? (Remix)," Miguel teams up with Kendrick for a night out on the town where they get a lil' tipsy, chat up some ladies, and try to schedule a sexy sleepover. Sure, you want to judge, sure, but how many of y'all wouldn't go home with Miguel and/or Kendrick?

Fabolous woos a Dominican beauty in his latest video for "Ready."
When it comes to New York rap kingpin Fabolous, it's Loso's way or the highway. But you never know -- maybe he'll change his style for the right girl. At least that's what we're getting from Fab's "Ready" clip featuring Chris Brown, the latest single from Loso Way 2: Rise to Power. Shot in the gorgeous Dominican Republic, Fab's vacation is sweetened by a local beauty who gives him all kinds of special treats. MINDS OUT OF THE GUTTER: We mean she's a maid who sneaks him luxury goods like watches and chains. But we kinda led you there. Sorry!

DeStorm Power instructs a classroom of high school students in his "Invincible" video.
When we last saw DeStorm Power, he was playing a chained-up school janitor in the video for "King Kong." Well, now it seems he's been promoted from custodian to teacher in his "Invincible" video (the latest cut from his King Kong mixtape), featuring fellow YouTube superstars Ray William Johnson and Chester See. So, first DeStorm was a janitor, and now he's a teacher? Will he be promoted to principal next? Maybe superintendent? We're detecting a theme here...
