Morrissey appears with Pamela Anderson in a spoken word video for his latest song "Earth Is The Loneliest Planet."
The singer, who will release his new album World Peace Is None Of Your Business on July 14, has unveiled the video for his latest single from the LP exclusively on NME.com. The companion film, directed by Natalie Johns, features lyric narration while Morrissey and Pamela admire the Hollywood sunset standing on the roof of the Capitol Tower in Los Angeles.
Idris Elba has directed a new short film for a track produced by Dutch DJ R3hab.
The actor chose to work on the promo for the song "Unstoppable," featuring Eva Simons, which will be included on the Pepsi Max Beats of the Beautiful Game album to celebrate the World Cup this year, because he loved the idea of being unstoppable. Idris, who has also achieved success as a DJ, said, "When I first heard the song I really loved the idea of being unstoppable ... it's self belief, its someone that just says, 'Guess what? I can do anything I want to do.'"
The six-minute video (seen after the jump) is set in the 1970s and features a group of teenagers on a school bus, outlining "the nerd," "the lads" and "the popular girls," who are all in different social circles. The promo tackles bullying and eventually shows the school nerd throwing away his glasses, standing up for himself and showing off his skills in a game of football as the girls watch one.
Kanye West has announced a movie based on his Yeezus world tour.
The 36-year-old rapper has teased the concert film, which will be directed by frequent collaborator Hype Williams, with a 30-second teaser trailer on his official website.
The trailer intersperses footage from his ongoing world tour, as well as clips from his recent "Bound 2" music video which featured his fiancee Kim Kardashian. "Yeezus film directed by Hype Williams coming to theatres," the website states.
Music video director Hype Williams has previously been entrusted to helm the elaborate visuals for Kanye's hit songs "All of the Lights," "Stronger" and "Gold Digger."
The "New Slaves" star has recently been linked to a biographical film based on his Yeezus album and it's rumored that Kim, 33, may have a starring role.
Lana Del Rey has spilled the beans (by accident!) about the release date for her upcoming album, Ultra-Violence.
While signing autographs and chatting with fans, Lana was caught off guard when one of them armed with a camera asks her, "When is your album coming out?" To which she answers, ""It's coming out soon... May 1st." The woman behind the camera responds, "May 1st? Has that date been announced? This is the first time we're hearing that date." The singer then realizes that she's being filmed, smiling, she exclaims, "What - is that on video?" She quickly tries to save herself by simply saying, "I think so," when the surrounding fans ask her for confirmation of the date.

Lea Michele debuted her new single "Battlefield" which features on her forthcoming album Louder.
The Glee star - who lost her co-star and boyfriend Cory Monteith earlier this year when he passed away following an accidental heroin and alcohol overdose in July at the age of just 31 - released a teaser online of the ballad which tells the story of a lost love and is a follow-up to her first single "Cannonball," which was released earlier this month. "You and I / We have to let it each other go / We keep holding on but we both know / What seemed like a good idea has turned into a battlefield / Peace will come when one of us puts down the guns / Be strong for both of us / No please, don't run, don't run / Eye to eye, we face our fears unarmed on the battlefield," she sings.
Is Prince William our next big rock star? A video documenting the royal's trio act with Taylor Swift and Bon Jovi (seen after the jump!) performing "Livin' on a Prayer" might convince you if you're actually having a hard time imagining it.
Swift and Bon Jovi were present at the UK's Winter Whites Gala held at Kensington Palace for a fundraiser in aid of the Centerpoint charity. Although Swift performed a song about palaces and princes in a palace with a prince - "Love Story" - folks in attendance were in for a huge surprise when Bon Jovi took the stage, encouraging the British royals' newest father to join him on stage. At first hesitant, Prince William hinted that he'd only agree if Swift would join in - to which she easily obliged (who wouldn't get the opportunity to sing alongside a real-life prince and a living musical legend?).

Lady Gaga's ARTPOP album may have already dropped earlier this month, but the singer-turned-fashion adventuress is far from finishing promotional work for it, as evidenced by a new short film she released yesterday.
Simply titled "An ARTPOP Film Starring LADY GAGA," the video was directed by famed fashion photographers Inez and Vinoodh.
"This album is a celebration. My pain exploding in electronic music, it’s heavy but after I listen to it I feel happy again, I feel lighter," Gaga's voice narrates, followed by a slow-motion shot of her in a white veil and short, white dress walking towards the camera as she waves like a beauty queen as the lights flash on her imitating paparazzi cameras.
The rest of Gaga's looks (which you can see after the jump!) vary from one extreme to another as she's nude (her modesty covered by strategically-placed dirt and moss) resembling an earthy goddess one moment and then sporting a wig that obscures her face so much that all you can see is her exaggerated teeth grill (first seen when she walked the red carpet at this year's YouTube Awards).

Katy Perry has unveiled the new video for "Unconditionally." The 29-year-old star - who is currently in a relationship with guitarist John Mayer - released the clip for the second single from her third studio album Prism today.
The brunette beauty worked with Brent Bonacorso on the video, which includes scenes showing her crouching in the snow, standing alone in the centre of a room full of people, wearing period drama-style clothing and even a scene where she holds a brown owl. Katy is also hit by a car in a dramatic scene, which is meant to show her enduring physical pain as a metaphor for unconditional love.
With her controversial award show performances and shocking fashions, it's easy to forget that Miley Cyrus can actually sing.
The former Disney star covered Lana Del Rey's "Summertime Sadness" for BBC Radio 1, putting a slight country pop spin to the tune. Although Cyrus sounds great on the track, it would've been nice to hear her stray a little farther from Del Rey's original version of the song. Hopefully Del Rey inspires her new work - it's definitely more interesting to hear her belting out notes like this compared to her current material!

In the spirit of Halloween, Britney Spears teamed up with British TV personality Nick Grimshaw to put out the above video, "It's Britney Witch!" (in case you've forgotten about her colorful lyrics, the title is a play on the first line from her "Gimme More" song).
Short and sweet, the pop star recites the opening lines from Michael Jackson's legendary "Thriller" video in a faux-British accent while propped against various "spooky" green screen backdrops. Although it's quite silly, it's great to see Britney enjoying herself (I mean, have you seen any of her interviews over the past few years?) and not feeling obligated to be sexy.
