Fall Out Boy have a disturbing meal in their "Young Volcanoes" video.
Fall Out Boy have gotten into some SERIOUS trouble in their last few videos. First, they were on the run from 2 Chainz and his crew in "My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark (Light 'Em Up)," then caught and tortured in "The Phoenix," and now the boys are being held captive by an elite hot girl death squad in "Young Volcanoes," their latest video from Save Rock And Roll. Or at least that's what we gathered from context. But all the context in the world won't help us figure out if these freaky girls want to hurt or help (or both) our beloved pop-punkers.

Azealia Banks sparks a fight with riot police her video for "Yung Rapunxel."
What goes on in Azealia Banks' mind is as hard to predict as, well, we guess most people. We're not mediums! But it doesn't exactly take a psychic to intuit that Azealia wants to change the hip-hop game in a big way with her experimental sounds and trippy, surrealist videos. "Yung Rapunxel," from her forthcoming Broke With Expensive Taste, is a prime example of that: a challenging, brash display of aggression and art.

Hit the club and TURN UP with DJ SpinKing's latest video, "Body Operator."
DJ SpinKing spends a lot of time behind the turntables for artists like Diggy, but in his latest video for "Body Operator" featuring Jerimih and French Montana, he's WAY out in front. Dude is TURNT UP in a club with, like, a 10-to-1 girl/guy ratio, which are pretty good odds for him and his crew, if you ask us. Diggy even shows up to hang out, which kinda makes us wonder, "Is he old enough to be in the club right now?"

Drake shoos away hanger-ons on DJ Khaled's "No New Friends."
When you're a multiplatinum, Grammy-award winning rapper and heartthrob, don't be surprised if a bunch of "friends" and "long-lost family members" turn up at your doorstep, hoping for a piece of the fame pie. Oh wait, we're only describing Drake, right? Fair enough. But the principle is universal: The people who were with you from the beginning are the ones who matter most. This holds true on DJ Khaled's latest single, "No New Friends," from the upcoming Suffering From Success, featuring Rick Ross, Lil Wayne, and the aforementioned Drizzy. Also, if these guys are suffering, we want to be MISERABLE.

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.
