Video Reviews

By C. Duke

Taylor Swift – Shake it Off 

* From her 5th upcoming CD release “1989” out October 27th, 2014. Starting off with a catchy marching band beat and horns, a departure from her usual country lean, Swift pops off about “shaking it off” when the “haters gonna hate”. Through many costume changes and scenes of ballerinas, break dancers, cheerleaders, ribbon dancers, twerkers and finger tutters, a little rap bit and making fun of her lack of dancing skills, Taylor has you “shaking it” off to this bubblegum, fun, upbeat pop tune of overcoming the adversity of haters.

Jessie J., Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj – Bang Bang 

* This video is HOT. Sweltering hot that is. Set in a an urban cityscape suffering from a heat wave Jessie J. and company will have you up and outta your seats sweating along to this anthem of promiscuity. The video starts and ends with theatrical style movie credits and Jessie kicks it off getting out of a pink muscle car in skin tight pants with suspenders and a halter bra and belts out, “She got a body like an hourglass, but I can give it to you all the time..”. Ariana comes in between verses with a pink megaphone singing, “you’ve been waiting for that, stop, hold up, swing your bat”. “Bang, bang into the room (I know you want it)/Bang bang all over you (I’ll let you have it)…” begins the chorus then, Ariana sings the second verse in her pink themed bedroom. Just after midway, Miss Minaj lends her rap skills to the joint from a helipad back lit in…wait for it…pink, where all the girls and party end up.

Nickelback – Edge of a Revolution (Main Version)

* Disgruntle with this political climate, Nickelback sing of “standing on the edge of a revolution” in this video with political protest footage playing from a classroom projector. As they perform in front of the projector screen, a first, single student building to several, scream for change and revolution as a resolve to this country’s woes. Viva la revolution.

Nicki Minaj – Anaconda 

* Further objectifying women and their backsides, Nicki, rapping over Sir Mix-a-Lot’s, “Baby Got Back” sample, inserts plenty of scantly clad girls twerking and flapping asses in this Amazonian jungle setting. Nicki brags about her “fat ass” and wanting to see all the “fat assed bitches in the club” and “f@%$ those skinny bitches in the club”. Full of sexual innuendo, this video is just as mindless as the women girls in it.

Colbie Caillat – Hold On

* Set in a moonlit, sandy, wooded area, Colbie has a flock of female dancers around her as she sings about falling out of love and moving on, but, “gets the feeling” maybe, she “should hold on” in this chorus catchy tune of fading love. The video ends with Colbie and company dancing in a lake with a giant moon back drop.
