There you have it, Selenators! You've had your first look at Selena Gomez's brand new "Come & Get It" music video courtesy of MTV First. The nearly five minute-long clip features Selly sprawled in open pastures, wading face-deep in blue lagoons, and serving excellent face with Bollywood-inspired choreography (no bindis this time, though). While not the staggering seven-outfit "Hit The Lights" fashion parade of her The Scene era, the ensembles in this video are definite looks and 100% warrant a closer look. Let's go!

Last we heard from Iggy Azalea, she was walking a mile in Louboutins (and Dolce and Gabbana) and plotting the ultimate desert escape in “Work.” Yep, the Australian MC loves to switch it up in music videos, whether it's chilling on bikes in Jeremy Scott, showing off her insane dance skills in custom jackets, and rocking a cheerleader uniform like nobody else. This time, though, she’s trading these badass pieces for... a sari? In “Bounce,” Iggy’s letting her hair down (yes, literally—there’s no ponytail here!) and heading to India in the Bollywood-inspired clip. We first saw snippets of the rapper’s sparkly jewel-tone wardrobe on Instagram, and now that the clip's finally premiered, everyone can bask in its glimmering, glittery glory. But first, see what Iggy’s stylist Alejandra Hernandez has to say about Iggy's Bollywood disco outfits, the challenges of draping saris, and the story behind THAT gold bodysuit in our exclusive interview below!

Selena Gomez Come & Get It

Selena Gomez has been teasing us FOREVER (OK, like, a month) about the release her "Come & Get It" music video, but now we can officially start counting down the days until the premiere right here on MTV! Her video will air on Tuesday, May 7 at 7:53 p.m. followed by a live 30-minute "MTV First: Selena Gomez" chat on MTV.com, and, psst, Selenators, you can ask questions during the interview, too. But guys, today Selena gave us a tiny teaser on what to expect next week, and, OMG, we can barely handle all the Bollywood-inspired amazingness! In the 30-second preview, she shows off tons of flowy gowns paired with oh-so-sultry makeup looks and even—gasp—an underwater scene. OooOOOh. One red dress in particular, though, should look REALLY familiar to y'all because Selena has already worn it before—at the MTV Movie Awards!

There are stylish musicians, and then there's Miguel. This dude is a real fashion force to be reckoned with, thanks to his uniquely on-point uniform (pompadour, biker jacket, t-shirt, check!) to his rockabilly-meets-hip-hop onstage influences. It didn't take long before our eyeballs became used to seeing the soulful crooner crank up his trademark slick style in videos like "Adorn," but now he's taking it to the next level in the new vid for "How Many Drinks (Remix)" featuring Kendrick Lamar. Seriously, though, does it get any better than HEAD-TO-TOE Saint Laurent?! In this case, no way. We already know Miguel's a huge fan of Hedi Slimane, but rarely do we land the opportunity to witness the French label's Nehru collar shirts and Cuban heels in action, not to mention on one of our favorite musicians (accompanied by a swoonworthy soundtrack, no less!). Luckily, the singer's stylist Jasmine Benjamin was here to dish on ALL the super-luxe fashion stuff crammed into this glossy 4-minute clip. So get the scoop below!

Demi Lovato behind the scenes of her video for "Heart Attack."

If there's anyone who knows about a brave comeback, it's Demi Lovato. We all watched Demi's beyond triumphant return to the spotlight in Stay Strong, but little did we know that her video for "Heart Attack" was another kind of comeback, albeit a smaller one. Remember Demi's studded orthopedic boot at the Los Angeles Topshop store opening? Well, that broken ankle had the singer in that boot for weeks, making the idea of putting heels on again a little scary (to say the least!). There was a benefit to Demi's reticence to move around in her heels, though. "I'm not moving around that much," Demi says, "but I guess it was good because I was able to perform more through my face and my emotions and my body language."

A still from Cat Power's Manhattan video.

While Chan Marshall, more commonly known as Cat Power, was filming her music video for "Manhattan," a busker in a New York subway station told her, "you're even more rock and roll than me." She tells me this over the phone, from the back of a car on her way to the airport where she is about to fly to London to perform on Later...with Jools Holland. She laughs as she tells the story, like the notion of her, a woman whose most recent album, Sun, debuted at number 10 on the Billboard Top 200, being more rock and roll than a man wailing away on an electric guitar in a train station is absolutely absurd, and don't I agree? I tell her she's pretty rock and roll herself, but she's not buyin' it. "I never set out to be a rock star," she says.

Marshall is a woman who, even after nearly twenty years of touring, putting out albums, appearing in a Chanel campaign, and soundtracking the design house's 2012 pre-fall show, still seems genuinely surprised by her success. Surprised, or wary that they're confusing her for someone else. They're most assuredly not, though, and Marshall is undoubtedly one of the most singular, compelling, and enigmatic musicians alive today. The video for "Manhattan"—a melancholy yet joyful ode to city streets with a galloping beat and a swinging, earworm of a melody—shows Marshall walking confidently through the New York City streets with her hair cropped short and dyed blond, alternating between a denim jacket and a leather one, both emblazoned with a rune-like 'C-P' symbol on the back. It's a nostalgic love song of a video, co-directed by Marshall and Greg Hunt, representing but one important city out of the many places she has lived, and lives she has had. It's all of these lives that created the singular, enigmatic artist, as well as shaped her undeniably chic (Karl Lagerfeld cast her in his Chanel campaign after seeing her standing on the street outside of the Mercer Hotel), effortless style. From a rough and tumble Georgia childhood to living with legendary '80s designer Patrick Kelly, a great many things have shaped Marshall's signature, minimalist style, anchored by jeans, boots, leather and jean jackets (all mostly provided by ACNE, who give Marshall her touring wardrobe) and, of course, black eyeliner. There's a lot more to it than that, though, and we caught up with Chan to get the whole story, and what a story it is.

All due respect to "Time After Time," but the typical high school dance playlist has us feeling a little sleepy. DJing is a serious business, particularly for a night as highly anticipated as prom. You want to set the right balance between songs people like to dance to with their friends, crowd favorites, and, of course, the obligatory slow dances. We set out to create a 10-track playlist to get you in the mood for prom, and maybe to inspire some DJ booth requests, as well. Listen to it while you're browsing websites looking for the perfect dress, while you're testing our that flawless celeb-inspired beauty look, or when you're packing up your prom survival kit before heading out to the dance. Even better, dance around your room to these songs in your PJ's and prom shoes—you want to make absolutely sure those bad boys are broken-in when it comes time to break it down on the dance floor.

SKY FERREIRA - "EVERYTHING IS EMBARRASSING"

One of the "It" songs of the year, Sky Ferreira's "Everything is Embarrassing" is a great ice-breaker. You're a little nervous to get out there on the floor and start just breaking it down, and you DEFINITELY don't want to start with a slow jam. Might as well just acknowledge the fact that you're feeling a little bashful, own it, and get on out there.

Macklemore, Ryan Lewis

Ohhhhh SNAP. It feels like ages since we've been graced with a new, aesthetically dazzling music video from Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, but never fear, Sharkface Gang. The wait is OVER! The Seattle-based duo just dropped their "Can't Hold Us" music video (honestly, more like short film, but you'll see for yourself in a minute) featuring the golden-throated and forever-smiling Ray Dalton, and y'all it is STUNNING. Shot on six different continents with a slew of unlikely cameos (a camel, for one), this is a definite production. Accordingly, Mack, Lewis, and Dalton all undergo several ensemble quick-changes, which means it's time for us to break the vid down look by look!

A Still From Azealea Banks' "Yung Rapunxel".
Photo: Polydor Records

Having just watched Azealia Banks' new video for "Yung Rapunxel" about, oh I don't know, 300 times, I can tell you that the world feels a little intense. An obvious homage to Aaliyah's iconic "Are You That Somebody," the atmospheric, graphic clip is a logical next step for Azealia aesthetically. Why so obvious, you ask? The first shot depicts Azealia, her eyes two different colors, wearing a bandana, with a bird of prey flying out of her third eye. Now, Aaliyah was as much known for her bandanas as for her washboard abs, and hawks feature famously in "Are You That Somebody." Since the influence is so clear, it's a true case of looking back while moving forward—pushing the aesthetics originally introduced in that video through even more evocative images. And the clothes! Azealia is giving us some major 1999 flashbacks with her raver steez, and as traumatic as U.F.O. pants were for me (we don't speak of that again), Azealia is WORKING some classic late '90s looks.

WHOA there, Justin Bieber! You definitely didn't give us much notice to mentally prepare for your new "All Around The World Video". Biebs tweeted yesterday, "I have a surprise for all my beliebers tomorrow... #AATWvideo," and while the hashtag kind of gives away the whole surprise element of it all, that's OK, we're glad to get a heads up. Because of this, we were totally eagle-eying Twitter this morning and on our tip-toes ready to pounce on the fashion game as soon as the video premiered. Taking the song's title to heart, the clip follows the star literally around the world, from performances to meet-and-greets to, yes, even an inside peek into his private jet (#swaggy). This tour footage means that we've seen most of these outfits before, but if you think about it, that's a good thing! Consider this sartorial whirlwind your chance to live vicariously through the Biebs (for a few minutes, anyway)... no passport required.

Aw, the video opens with Justin ASLEEP on his private jet! (Side note: Does he actually sleep in a beanie?) But before long we get a glimpse at the rest of his outfit, which includes a black T-shirt, baggy black pants, and olive green sneaks. Moving on...

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
