Rhianna’s 2009 smash hit “Disturbia” is the next feature for our Creepy Music Video Series. The Barbadian beauty portrays a demented or possessed woman imprisoned in a decaying dungeon-like establishment where Tarantulas roam freely, prisoners look like zombies, and walls have a life of their own.

Stacy Barthe Sprinkles A Likkle Reggae Flavor in “Like It Is” {Video}

Stacy Barthe, the gifted songwriter behind the hits of Rihanna, Katy Perry and Britney Spears, knows how to create break-up songs that sound so good; danceable even. Her current single “Like It Is” from In the Inbetween EP, an ode to a steamy relationship that lost its fizzle, is not just another boring love song, and the visual matches the premise. Set on a beautiful island as Stacy portrays a carefree woman over the break-up, she joyrides on a speedboat, frolics in the sun, and smiles all while a photo of her and her lover (which is singer/songwriter Luke James) slowly burns.

In The Inbetween is now on iTunes.

Ladies in Music who Rocked The Met Gala 2012

You don’t dress to impress at The Costume Institute Gala, you dress in excess.  The Met Gala at Metropolitan Museum of Art (or as some call it, Oscars of the East Coast) is one of the most prestigious events in the fashion world that brings out the best and brightest in fashion, music, film and television. In celebration of the opening of the “Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations” exhibition, many of our adored ladies in music killed it on the red carpet. Some of the looks ranged from dark and edgy to bright and bold. Here are our some of our favorite looks:

Beyonce Knowles-Carter in Givenchy Haute Couture by Riccardo Tisci

Lea Michele in Diane von Furstenberg

Lana Del Rey in Joseph Altuzarra
