The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

By Tom Breihan / June 19, 2015 - 9:33 am

Madonna’s “Bitch, I’m Madonna” is a bad video. It might be a good video if Madonna wasn’t out here trying to compete with Taylor Swift’s “Badd Blood” in the guest-star department and failing hilariously. Swift got her guest stars to throw knives and kung fu fight. Madonna has higher-wattage celebrities, but she can’t get them… More »

Double Talk” was the first single off Jaakko Eino Kalevi’s lush self-titled new album. Today he’s shared a simple, pastel-hued video to accompany it.
