The thing about 2 Chainz (as so many of my conversations start) is: he's hilarious. How can you not find some place in your heart for an MC who spits, in complete earnest, "She got a big booty, so I call her 'Big Booty'"? Or who rolls up to the Grammys looking like Versace Dracula?? Whether the humor in his lyrics (and in IRL) is completely unintentional or keenly self-aware, to me, is irrelevant—I love him preeeeetty unconditionally. So, it's no surprise that when he dropped the music video for his "Feds Watching" track featuring Pharrell, I was instantly obsessed. The best part? It's teeming with not one, not two, but, like 10 über-chic, stiletto-clad models and a wealth of fashion lyrics (even if we're pretty sure he says "Como des Garçons." Just in case you're as stoked as us on all of the above, we illustrated our fave quotables with stills from the vid. Enjoy!

The quack is back! DJ duo Duck Sauce has finally rolled out a new single in "It's You," two years after "Big Bad Wolf" and three after their immensely popular "Barbra Streisand," and it's (expectedly) a banger if we do say so ourselves. The track itself hase been in circulation for a few weeks now, but yesterday, Armand Van Helden, A-Trak and their team released the "It's You" music video. Which brings us to why we, purveyors of all things style, are talking about it: it's ALL. ABOUT. HAIR.

Late last week, Robyn and Snoop Dogg released a music video for their extra-special duet "U Should Know Better" from Robyn's 2010 Body Talk. We may have been bumping the track for the past three years, but that doesn't make us any less excited for the new excuse to play it even louder (which is exactly what we did this past weekend). Now that we're back in the office, we're lending a more serious eye toward the video and its gender-bending concept. Robyn herself only makes one IRL cameo in the short, letting a mini boy-version of herself take center stage alongside Pernilla of 2faced1's Lady Snoop. The likenesses of both are uncanny, due mostly to expert styling, so obviously we're inclined to break down the fashion.

Whew, it's FINALLY here, y'all! Miley Cyrus' "We Can't Stop" music video just dropped, and we've been watching this bad boy on repeat ALL DAY. Between her bombass grill, taxidermy accessories and dope onesies, there's just so much fashiony goodness wrapped up in one 3-minute video, we can barely handle it. Lucky for you, we pulled out every single outfit (which was styled by Simone Harouche!) so we can digest each look in all its amazing glory. So, let's get to it!

So, fashion icon Daphne Guinness, heiress to the Guinness beer fortune and best friend to the late Alexander McQueen came out with a music video. Entitled “Fatal Flaw,” the 5-minute video was directed by Nick Knight (who also directed Bjork’s “Pagan Poetry” and Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way”), and the song will be available for download via the director’s SHOWStudio web site in ten days. As an aside, Knight’s also the dude who takes a TON of pictures of Kanye West and Kim Kardashian. Tasteful-nudes style.

Today might be Monday (womp womp), but it's definitely NOT any ordinary Monday, because this morning marks the premiere of Miley Cyrus' "We Can't Stop" single! We've been counting down the days ever since the singer's huge announcement at the Billboard Awards, and now it's finally arrived. While the track is awesome enough in itself—after all, we've been waiting for new Miley music for what feels like FOREVER—it gets even better, because a music video is on its way! Yep, the star teased images from her forthcoming project on Twitter over the weekend, saying, "#WECANTSTOP #tWERK" alongside the image above.

It's been a long road to Miley Cyrus' highly-anticipated return to music, one that's been filled with haircuts, style switchups, and more magazine covers than we can EVER keep track of. And while we're always down to hash out each and every one of her predictably boundary-pushing outfits via Instagram and the red carpet, today the star is throwing us something a little different. Yep, a MUSIC VIDEO. Snoop Lion recruited Miley for his reggae-inflected track "Ashtrays and Heartbreaks," which we first got a taste of back in April. Given the song title and mellow beats, it's only fitting that the accompanying clip have a similar laid-back fashion vibe, as well.

Diving headfirst into work/school/pretty much anything after a long holiday weekend is seriously rough. But leave it to Ke$ha to inject some major party vibes into our Tuesday evening with the WORLD PREMIERE of her "Crazy Kids ft. will.i.am" music video! The singer dropped the clip tonight during her MTV First, and needless to say, it went way beyond the Instagram snaps and sneak peeks she's been feeding us these past few days (which is really saying something!). She might only have a couple of outfit changes, but trust us—it's a whole lotta look. Think colored cornrows, an insane manicure, lots of bling, and a leotard literally dripping in gold. One part Riff Raff, one part Brooke Candy, and one part, well, just pure Ke$ha in her gold-grinned glory, the "Crazy Kids" video is enough to inspire ANYONE to go a little bit wild. Peep our complete fashion recap below!
You already know that a highpoint of our week here at Style is when we get to see what our favorite Animal is up to on Ke$ha's My Crazy Beautiful Life, and, sadly, the docu-series comes to an end tonight. We can't be THAT sad, however, because Ke$ha and her Animals are taking over MTV tonight, and in addition to the show finale, will also be premiering the MUCH anticipated video for "Crazy Kids." We first caught a glimpse of her Brooke Candy channeling cornrows and pastel nail art from some behind-the-scenes shots on her Instagram, and the sneak peek video is really just increasing our excitement. We get to see her Insta-ed outfit in action in the preview, as she dances around in enormous gold bamboo hoops, rings all over her fingers and 40 ounces of glittery something featured prominently. The video premieres on MTV tonight at 7:53 pm EST, to be followed by "MTV First: Ke$ha," on kesha.mtv.com. Got a question for Ke$ha? Tweet it with the hashtag #AskKesha and she may just give you the answer live!

If you're anything like me, every time you hear Selena Gomez's "Come & Get It," you have the hook stuck in your head for DAYS. Suffice it to say, it's been basically half-a-week since Selly did her thang on the Billboard stage, and I'm STILL muttering "nananana"s under my breath in the middle of conversations. I'm sure you've been playing the music video on endless repeat (just as I have at my desk), and I'm pretty confident the general consensus among all who set eyes on the clip is that this new, grown-up look is a good one on Selena. The maturity of her "Come & Get It" steez is due in part to excellent risk-taking couture but is mostly thanks to that KILLER bright red lipstick.
