!! OMG, how soothing: Erykah Badu’s interpretive dance moves !!


The big highlight of this year’s Coachella Festival was easily an impromptu backstage fan meet-and-greet with Erykah Badu following her Record Store Day autograph signing at the Zia Records tent. Under the watchful eyes of the creepy-ass security cameras hovering ominously in the palm trees, we all listened as Ms. Badu explained how she recently hired a back-up singer off Twitter, dished out chakra-based relationship advice and reenacted a scene from the classic 1975 film Coolie High.
Anyway, just thought I’d brag about that a bit before we segue into the beautiful new music video for “Out My Mind, Just In Time Movement One”, the first part of the epic closer to her New Amerykah Part Two: Return of the Ankh album. This week began with an overblown award show performance so what better way to end it than with a little grace, simplicity and interpretive dance…

!! OMG, she knows how to werq: Azis !!


Bulgarian singer Azis loves drag, make-up, Flame (like Photoshop on video), and beefy, oiled-up men. He’s a local celebrity in Bulgaria through his run for Parliament and appearances on Big Brother Bulgaria, but is not yet well-known in North America.
Let this video for his song “No Kazvam ti stiga” be your introduction, and Ciara take note: This is how you make a construction-themed music video.
After the jump, watch Azis show his masculine side in the duet “Iskam, Iskam” with singer Malina.

!! OMG, double take: Beyonce’s Billboard performance !!


Yesterday, I went all craycray for Beyonce‘s performance of Run the World (Girls) at the 2011 Billboard Music Awards — but today it looks like we’re dealing with a sliiiiightly different situation. It seems that Ms. B ain’t the first performer to work with design company Tribe, Inc., who choreographed similar animation for Italian singer Lorella Cuccarini, among others. So, while Beyonce’s performance was still ah-mazing, I’m disappointed that it’s not exactly original. You?
Watch Lorella Cuccarini’s performance with the visuals at last year’s Sanremo Music Festival after the jump.

!! OMG, un-friggin-real: Beyonce at the Billboard Music Awards !!


Beyonce‘s new song Run the World (Girls) may be a bit…of a letdown, but her performance at the 2011 Billboard Music Awards was un-friggin-real. The set, the video choreography, the singing, the cast of a kagillion backup dancers — really, this might be one of the best live award show performances of all time.
