At 34-minutes long, Kanye West has broken the world record for longest music video, debuting his new epic “Runaway.”
The music video is visually a departure from Wests’ other past video projects, providing listeners/viewers with a hip-hop epic that at points can drag on with chats and repeating beats I personally could have done without.
The version we’ve chosen to show gets rid of the swear words to make it safe for work.
The synopsis is that a phoenix (Selita Ebanks) plays a metaphor for West’s return to the top of his game. While West keeps using the video to talk about the hate he received from Taylor Swift fans after he dissed her at the 2009 MTV VMAs. Read the rest of this entry »

Willow Smith recently signed to Jay-Z’s Roc Nation record label and now we have her first video for the song “Whip My Hair.”
The video is debuting two weeks ahead of Willow’s 10th birthday and the video isn’t horrible, but definitely not worth the hype she’s getting.
In any case, dad Will and mom Jada Pinkett Smith are no doubt proud of the newest Smith brood to join the entertainment business.
Here’s the video:

‘Runaway’ the song Kanye West performed to close out this years MTV Video Music Awards will be released as a 40-minute music video according to NY MAG. The performance will be the longest music video ever recorded.
Runaway will beat out Michael Jackson’s 39 minute and 31 second opus titled “Ghosts.”
Kanye of course is hyping the piece as an “epic piece of art” here’s what he had to say:
“It’s the story of a phoenix fallen to Earth, and I make her my girlfriend, and people discriminate against her and eventually she has to burn herself alive and go back to her world…I’ve been feeling the idea of the phoenix. It’s been in my heart for a while. It’s maybe parallel to my career. I threw a Molotov cocktail on my career last year, in a way, and I had to come back as a better person.”

Taylor Swift is a country darling, pop cross over with a huge fanbase, more Twitter followers than almost every other online personality and multi-platinum selling albums, so what does she do in her time off? She writes, records and released a new album.
Swift’s third LP, titled Speak Now won’t release until October, but her first single from that record, titled “Mine” is now available for your listening and viewing pleasure.
Here’s the video for Mine:
Lady Gaga has never been one to play it safe when it comes to her costumes and clothes. This year’s VMAs was no different. US Magazine showed her in all of her glory at the awards. They say it was a shocking outfit, I think it’s Lady Gaga being true to form.
Janet Jackson is going to open this year’s MTV VMAs, and she is going to do it with a tribute to her brother, Michael. Needless to say, it is the most appropriate thing to do after his passing and considering his contribution to the popularity of music videos. This should be quite a production!
