Echosmith brings its sibling love to the stage in "Surround You."
We've been obsessing over Echosmith since we saw the band's "Cool Kids" music video last summer, and as 2013 heads to a close, they're nearing the top of our year-end Best Los Angeles Sibling Band list. (Shout-out to HAIM!)
We'd like to see the band's debut album, Talking Dreams, on lists of all kinds, a cause helped by their new video for "Surround You."
The hushed track captures the quartet at its most intimate, with singer Sydney Sierota leading the tender love song. "Darling, I'm thrilled to have you by my side," she sings, and the song lifts from lonesome acoustic chords to a chamber-pop climax.

Oh, just the Biebs channelling Tony Hawk!
Justin Bieber has many hobbies -- getting new tattoos, working out, graffiti art, making out with hot blondes in music videos, and getting busy with said hot blondes on countertops, planes, trains, parking lots, and various other household surfaces. Now, feel free to add skateboarding/ Tony Hawk-impersonating to the Biebs' long list of talents that DON'T involve his buttery falsetto!
Justin took to Instagram to share a video documenting his wild skateboarding endeavors, aptly captioned: "skate." YOU GO, BOI! Like, he may not yet be at X Games levels of skill quite just yet, but the "Heartbreaker" def has some moves! Bro didn't fall once, and is it weird to say that he's definitely more agile than your average boarder? More kissable, for sure.

Kelly Clarkson goes all out for X-mas in her "Underneath The Tree" video.
If you thought Leona Lewis had the holidays on lock in her "One More Sleep" video, then you'd better get a load of Kelly Clarkson's extra-festive video for "Underneath The Tree," taken from her new X-mas disc, Wrapped In Red.
Why extra-festive, you ask? Well, in case you couldn't tell from the picture-perfect still above, Kelly's wearing the most Christmas-y ball gown we've ever seen! There's also fake snow, a giant Christmas tree, and even MORE trees with twinkle lights! And then there's Kelly's RED, BEDAZZLED MICROPHONE. Happy holidays, indeed!

Bey's dripping Swagù in that feathery headpiece!
In case you missed it last week because FOOD, Beyoncé released her HBO documentary, "Life Is But A Dream," on DVD coupled with a second disc titled "Live In Atlantic City," featuring footage from Bey's four-night Revel nightclub residency in May.
To promote the release, the "God Made You Beautiful" singer has been unveiling performance clips on YouTube, like this "Showgirls"-worthy live rendition of "Party" below. The sparkling, goddess-like centerpiece in a swirling sea of pink feathers, Beyoncé shines like a true showgirl on stage. Thankfully, unlike the 1995 camp classic, none of her backup dancers look nefarious enough to try anything funny.

Let's watch an old-school Britney interview from the year 2000!
Happy Britney Jean release day! It's been an arduous, two-and-a-half year wait for some new Britney Spears material, but WE HAVE ARRIVED!
Now, aside from playing hooky to stream the album and re-watch "Crossroads," what better way is there to celebrate this momentous occasion than by digging into the MTV archives and watching an old-school interview with Brit from the year 2000? Um, I know. NOTHING??

Just as sure as the stars in the sky, Justin Bieber's new "All That Matters" video is just, like, sex on sex on sex on sex with an order of sex on the side. (You know, because of that gluten allergy.) The Colin Tilley-directed clip for one of JB's many #MusicMondays releases is equal parts sultry, steamy, and, um, makeout-filled.
In fact, the only things distracting us from all the super sensual, pelvic-thrusty stuff going on between the "PYD" crooner and his stunning costar are a motorcycle, an old-school film projector, blue and red color filters, a dripping wet hunk of ice, and not much else.
This is truly Justin's Usher in "U Remind Me" moment -- his Justin Timberlake in "Like I Love You" turning point. And obviously, we wouldn't turn back if you paid us. So, c'mere. Let's revel in Justin Bieber's newly unveiled level of sexytimes-having manhood the only way we know how: a mini GIF wall!!!!

You guys ready to rock? Uh oh...
Grouplove's new video for "Shark Attack," the second single off their sophomore album, Spreading Rumours, is kinda like a "Would you rather?" question set to motion. In the Cameron Duddy-directed clip, that epic stumper is, "Would you rather perform some L.A. twee dance rock, uninvited, at a quinceañera thrown by the sternest father ever or at the heaviest, metal-est, heavy metal party of all time?" The answer: NOPE. NEITHER. BYE.

Leona Lewis has the holidays on lock!!
Ever wonder what THE perfect holiday getaway looks like? Like, the kind portrayed in L.L. Bean and/or American Eagle catalogs? Well, look no further than Leona Lewis' "One More Sleep" video!

Oh, Gaga, what big eyes you have!
Rocket No. 9, blast off to Japan! While we were all busy stuffing our faces full of FOOOOOOD which then became LEFTOVER FOOOOOOD this past weekend, Lady Gaga was all over Tokyo promoting the eff out of ARTPOP. Her promo methods included TV appearances, live performances, life-size "GAGADOLLs," and even a long-prophesied reunion with Hello Kitty herself. Yep, you heard that right. Sit down, strap in, and get ready for a super kawaii ride.
To start, the "Do What U Want" singer debuted a cartoonishly cute look featuring giant anime-inspired eyes drawn over her actual eyelids. (Similar to her red carpet styling at the 2011 MTV Japan Video Music Awards, but, like, NEXT LEVEL.) If we had to say, we believe that the aesthetic can best be summed up as either "Botticelli's 'Birth Of Venus' (The Harajuku Remix)" or the human-size version of Gaga's childhood mermaid doll. Take your pick.
Check out Gaga's fateful meeting with Hello Kitty, plus videos of her doll eyes in action after the jump.
Fall Out Boy stumble into a horrifying hospital in their "Where Did The Party Go" video.
"I'm here to collect your heart," Patrick Stump sings in the opening lines of Fall Out Boy's "Where Did The Party Go." Dude, nobody thought you meant that literally.
In the song's just-released video, a bloody-faced, hook-handed, evil-eyed (but still impeccably dressed) Stump is on the loose, and he's not gonna stop until he gets what he wants -- which is blood, yes, but also a sick dance party.
