Britney Spears applies her Fantasy scent in her video for 'Perfume.'

The video for Britney Spears' latest single, "Perfume," was just released and, wow, Britney must smell really good. She applies perfume ALL over her body. Is that how you get perfume to last? Spraying it on your stomach? I will take advice from a woman who has 12 scents to her name.

Obviously, with a song title like "Perfume" and bottles of Fantasy to sell, Britney and her team didn't miss the perfect opportunity for slow-mo shots of the pink sequined bottle as Britney applies enough for a few days. At those quantities, it's sure to rub off on the man you're having an affair with, Brit. His girlfriend will definitely smell your perfume.

Britney and her team weren't waiting for a perfectly named single to peddle perfume in her videos, though: Her various scents have made appearances for years! Let's take a look at some more cameos, shall we?

Lorde

When we think of Lorde, one thing (other than the lyrics to "Royals") pops into mind: that hair. Sure, she pulls off goth-inspired style and dark lipstick insanely well, but that curly mane is kinda her thing. Even though we've seen it matted down and pinned back on the cover of Clash magazine, we were still taken aback when we peeped her video for "Team" and her signature curls were M.I.A.

From what we can see in the few (and dark) shots of Lorde in the video (wearing a Zana Bayne leather harness, BTW), she seems to have braided her hair into cornrows and tied it into a ponytail at the nape of her neck. When we chatted with Lorde a few weeks ago, she revealed the secret to her hair was not washing it frequently which, TBH, we can get behind. Good news for Lorde (and us, as Lorde worshippers): Cornrows don't need to be washed that frequently either! A new style to add to our encyclopedia that doesn't require maintenance? Sign us up!

It's hard to tear your eyes away from all the mouth action (yea, I said it) happening in Justin Bieber's "All That Matters" music video, but if you are of sound enough mind and strong enough will to do so, you may have noticed something peculiar about the wardrobe. And no, I'm not talking about that blonde girl in the denim overall crop top that may or may not be from Rihanna's debut River Island collection. It seems The Biebs has pulled a page from Kanye's book of answers with this video steez by wearing a KILT. And a leather one, at that! Yep, the pop wunderkind took a momentary break from his super-saggy (not to be confused with swaggy), butt-baring pants in favor of these Rick Owens leather skinnies with an attached matching kilt.

Kanye West

It's been over a week now since Kanye West debuted his music video for "Bound 2" on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, and yet, we STILL can't stop talking about it. Part of that is due to a second wave of attention spurned by Seth Rogen and James Franco's "Bound 3" parody which took the interwebz by storm earlier this week. The other part is because we're probably never going to get over seeing Kim's nippleless silhouetted boobs. #imprinted4life Regardless of how or why, the moving visuals for the Yeezus closing track are still a very hot topic, even for Ye himself, who revealed the treatment for the surreal Americana steelo in an interview with Power 105.1 FM's The Breakfast Club. "I wanted to take white trash t-shirts and turn it into a video," Kanye divulged.

While it's unclear what exactly Ye is referring to with that "white trash t-shirts" nod, we think we know where he's going with the reference—those weird tees printed with images of howling wolves and dolphins and way oversized animal faces that used to be nerdy and have since resurfaced ironically in hipsters' (and Tyler the Creator's) closets. Sure, Jerry Saltz's comparisons to Richard Prince's Cowboy photographs did more to elevate the work than the parallels we're about to draw, but we like to think it was Kanye's aim all along to pull from and marry the high and low brow ends of the cultural matrix. And so, without further ado, here are nine t-shirts we think might have inspired the treatment for Kanye West's "Bound 2" music video.

These days, seeing Miley Cyrus perform in the equivalent of underwear is pretty much the norm. She's shown us that, no matter the season, most occasions call for a high-cut, two-piece outfit and platform shoes. (Sidebar: she must save SO much storage and packing space without all those pesky pants to fold!) Naturally, her outfit in Will.I.Am's new joint for "Feelin' Myself" is no exception. Cyrus wears black latex separates, matching strappy heels and a gold chain belt to rap and shake her booty "like an expert" in the video, which also features appearances by French Montana and Wiz Khalifa. Oh, and that chain-link bomber she covers up with? Turns out, it didn't come from on-set wardrobe—it came from her very own closet.

Ke$ha in the music video for "Timber."

After performing "Timber" together for the first time Sunday night at the American Music Awards, Pitbull and Ke$ha released the music video for their song via Pitbull's Facebook page yesterday. And it is SAUCY. Basically, it's kind of like they took two different music and spliced them together to look like one big global party. In the first, Ke$ha has a sexy hoedown in a saloon with a bunch of Coyote Ugly-types, while the second features Pitbull doing a lot of sexy dancing at a pristine beach with a ladyfriend. There's also some stray sharks swimming around, but they aren't very sexy at all.

Eminem's "Rap God" video is on its way! Em released a teaser for the video and he's wearing...a suit? Like, I think the last time Eminem wore a suit was in the "Without Me" video when he was playing a game show host? Dude doesn't wear suits, so we're going to cherish seeing him in a jacket, even if it is extremely shiny. His sunglasses are likely in place to shield his eyes from the sheen coming off that suit.

Demi Lovato

A few days ago Demi Lovato gave us a sneak peek at her glow-in-the-dark makeup in her video for "Neon Lights." As big fans of Demi Lovato and anything that glows, we were anxious to see what Demi had in store for us. The video dropped earlier this afternoon and, as expected, it's full of our fave things: leather catsuits, blue hair, and, most importantly, NEON. Let's peep all of Demi's looks so we can begin shopping for all things that look good under a black light!

A serene shot in the midst of a sweaty, dance-filled video, Demi is sans clothes and makeup in a purple pool. Her hair is so dark when wet that, for a second, we feared the blue was gone.

Katy Perry

Katy Perry really is growing up, y'all! In a stark contrast to her bubblegum Candyfornia image of yesteryear, KP has released the music video for "Unconditionally," the second official single off of her Prism album, and it's super mature and gorgeous (just like her!). Where the lyric video for the track was really stripped down and bare, the full-fledged music video is more about beautiful, rich imagery and symbolism which Katy revealed in her MTV First with Iggy Azalea was meant to express that abstract phenomenon of falling in love—and apparently unconditional love also comes with a swagged out closet of designer goods, so sign us up! We were fortunate enough to catch up with Katy's long-time trusted stylist Johnny Wujek to pick his brain about the ogle-worthy wardrobe and its inspiration.

Sure, if there's ONE thing about Kanye West's "Bound 2" music video you're talking about, it's likely that eye-popping Kim Kardashian cameo. (ICYMI: girl is topless—NOT naked, she's wearing jeans, y'all—and bouncing all over Ye's motorcycle. #innuendo) But here at MTV Style, our collective mind is on a single track, and not even Ye trying to make "fetch" happen inserting his *achem* buxom fiancé into this music video can distract us from the fashion at hand. So, let's talk about these layered plaids.

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