In case you were worried Nicki Minaj's "Senile" video would only contain one brand-new matching Moschino set, you can rest assured: There will be at least two. Nicki posted a new set of images from the shoot on Instagram last night, and though she has on a Moschino bra and underwear, she looks very different than she did in last week's photos. Perhaps it's that dark lip liner?

In addition to the liner, Nicki has on a pair of gold bamboo door-knocker hoops that could give Rihanna's biggest pair a run for their money. Maybe Nicki hit up Rih to ask about the "#chola" life—she went as a "#ZombieChola" for Halloween last year, so she may have tips on tying a bandana and keeping your liner in place. Just two friends exchanging lifestyle tips, y'know, the usual.

Jennifer Lopez

In addition to serving up a whole lotta half-naked dudes (#hey), Jennifer Lopez's new music video for "I Luh Ya Papi" serves up some gender equality realness. At the beginning of the video, a record label exec is pitching video locations to J.Lo and her friends (I always bring mine to meetings too) and they're, like, really terrible. A water park? How about no. The zoo? Hard pass. Jennifer and her friends decide the video should feature Jennifer in the role of a ~typical~ video guy, with the gender roles reversed. There is, for example, a shirtless man washing a car/his body while J.Lo and her friends look on. Typical Thursday where I come from, TBH.

One of biggest gender reversals in the video, at least fashion-wise, though, is when J.Lo dons a jumpsuit that is quite reminiscent of her infamous 2000 Grammys dress. I can't believe people made a big deal about this, you guys. She was wearing a full-length Versace gown that showed a little bit of chest and stomach skin. Everything else was covered. Simon Cowell wore deeper Vs on American Idol every Tuesday and Wednesday night on network TV. Anyway, it seems that because she is imitating men in her video, J.Lo wears a similar print in a similar color scheme, but it ends in pants, rather than a skirt. Talk about a power suit, riiight?

You know what your Thursday needs? A sweet, sweet R&B slow jam. Listen, I know Boyz II Men's "I'll Make Love to You" is a pretty aggressively ~seductive~ track to wedge into your work/school week, but just be glad I'm dispatching this toward the end of your day and not at 9 a.m. while you're finishing up your bagel and cream cheese. Also, it is EXTREMELY underrated in the universe of music video style. Since you likely don't remember this one off the top of your head, I'm breaking this #TBT down for you look by look.

Hey, remember when the Backstreet Boys were all lined up and glowing in pristine linens in an airplane hangar for their "I Want It That Way" video? Boyz II Men's above look predates that by five years. Fittingly for the early '90s, the dudes are working with bizarro, boxy-tailored pieces, and Wanya Morris in a jacket and trousers with a mismatched vest, and Michael McCary in a sleeveless vest with a Nehru collar. Also, some sort of cane and/or rain stick. IDK what's up with that. I don't remember that being a trend then.

Angel Haze

Since she came onto the scene two years ago, Angel Haze has been one of fashion’s favorite rappers. She’s had the high honors of posing for Karl Lagerfeld, playing for Donatella Versace, and, more recently, walking the runway for DKNY. So it makes total sense that, for her new “A Tribe Called Red” video for i-D, Angel went full-on high fashion, wearing looks straight off the spring runway.

Saint Laurent provides Angel Haze’s first look in the video: a leather suit, which she styles with a BLK DNM mesh tank, a Versace Medusa medallion, and boots from Dr. Martens. While leather-on-leather can be a lot of look, and a stiff one at that, Haze keeps it fresh by unbuttoning her blazer and rolling up her sleeves.

Iggy Azalea

It's here! We were anxiously awaiting the drop of Iggy Azalea's Clueless-themed video for "Fancy (feat. Charli XCX)" and—OMG—it's so much more Clueless-y than we could've ever imagined/hoped/dreamed. In a behind-the-scenes video of the shoot, it's revealed that not only was the wardrobe inspired by the movie, but the entire thing is shot at the same school! That is some hardcore stanning on Iggy's part, and we are so into it. Iggy's stylist, Alejandra Hernandez, explains that, in addition to Iggy and Charli, the team had to dress 250 extras. It was worth it, IMHO. Let's peep all 250 looks, below! LOL, as if! We're gonna keep it to just Iggy and Charli's outfits because we don't have that kind of patience.

The first shot, naturally, is of Iggy picking out her outfit for school. She has the modern-day, iPad version of Cher's computerized closet. Seemingly not distracted by how great her hair looks ("she woke up like dis"), she wears a vintage Betsey Johnson silk robe and swipes left until she has a match (wardrobe Tinder, amirite?).

Driver, roll up the partition, please. I can only watch Beyonce's "Partition" music video in private because this ish is WAY TOO STEAMY. *douses face with a cup of cold water, fans self vigorously* Members of the esteemed BeyHive (of which I am most definitely a part) have been watching this vid—along with the other 16 from her visual album—since late last year, but it just dropped in full for the world wide web to view today! Directed by Jake Nava and styled by B. Akerlund (plus Ty Hunter, obvi), the short follows Mrs. Carter through a VIVID mid-breakfast fantasy sequence.

We open on King Bey posted up in very Downton Abbey eating quarters, nomming on breakfast and tea (presumably with her hubby Jay Z). She's clad in a crisp Chanel robe, CC certified earrings, black-rimmed Tom Ford cat-eye reading glasses, and a turquoise silk lingerie set with black lace details from La Perla Neglige. Oh, also BRIGHT red lips and nails.

HAIM

Haim has always had a penchant for the vintage. Their 2013 album Days Are Gone is a glorified compendium of lite-FM rock that we still have on repeat. In their video for “If I Could Change Your Mind,” they really dial up the retro vibes, referencing '70s American Bandstand and '60s girl groups with their killer synchronized dancing. Haim even brought in Aaliyah and the Backstreet Boys’ choreographer Fatima Robinson to assist with their moves, which is another kind of throwback. But even with their spectacular dancing, we're just as interested in the clothes.

The video opens with the sister trio standing in a circle over their instruments and cloaked in black—both sartorially speaking and in terms of the set lighting. Director Warren Fu—whose previous client list includes Aaliyah, Daft Punk, and the Strokes—plays around a lot with lighting in the video. The ladies Haim stick to a minimal color palette: black boxy leather jackets with black bottoms.

It's finally here! After a week of anticipation, including a live performance of the song, the video for "Dark Horse" just dropped, and it's everything Katy Perry promised it would be. Bright colors, a cruel queen, ancient Egypt (kinda), major eyeliner! And, of course, there are multiple outfit changes. There's no time to waste, so let's take a look at all of Katy's outfits NOW.

The video opens with Katy decked out in head-to-toe white. She's wearing a billowy white Versace dress with chest cut-outs, so, hi, she's a cool queen. Her Lynn Ban gold bracelet and serpentine anklet match the gold embellishments on her dress and the cap toe of her Manolo Blahnik heels complement the silvery white of her wig—the entire look is very matchy-matchy.

Katy Perry performs at the 2014 Brit Awards.

There are some things about history that you'll never learn in school. Like, for example, what a modern day rave might have looked like in ancient Egypt. Thankfully, Katy Perry was able to fill in that blank during her performance today at the 2014 Brit Awards. After previewing her Egyptian-themed video for "Dark Horse" last week, Perry had all of Britain bowing down before her when she took the stage as the magical, mystical, totally trippy Queen Katy Patra.

Perry Patra descended upon her (mostly) shirtless subjects aboard a golden chariot, as Egyptian queens do, wearing a high-neck, neon leotard with a coordinating jacket that may or may not have been stolen from the tomb of Isis. (JK, it's all custom-made by Nicolas Jebran, and I seriously doubt color technology was this advanced back then anyway.)

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