The butt-shakingly over the top video for Nicki Minaj's Anaconda (Previously) was released recently and while there's been discussion if it re-claims the twerk or refuses the male gaze, video artist Jeff Osborne has put the song into its 90s "Baby's Got Back" pop culture context with appearances by Jessica Rabbit, Beavis And Butthead, and more.

Me real, me fake, anxiety drowning, safe never

Every year students at Madonna University's Sign Language Studies program create ASL music videos of popular songs, incorporating elements of ASL poetry and storytelling. Each video comes with a comprehensive guide explaining the translations and artistic choices behind each line of the video. Some examples: Pompeii by Bastille, Four Women by Nina Simone, and of course Bohemian Rhapsody.

Breakfast Can Wait

In what can only be described as a peculiar reversal of approach, Prince has released his latest video on Vevo/YouTube. Breakfast Can Wait is classic Prince, slow and funky, featured altered vocals reminiscent of Sign O' The Times era tracks, full of sexxxy goodness. The SFW video is also classic in form, with Janet Jackson-style synchronized formation dancing.

WTF? Trippy music video from the USSR.

I'm not a fan of front-page posts that don't describe their link, but I seriously have no idea what this is. It's Russian. It's from the '60s. Now that I've watched it, I feel my life is complete, yet I somehow simultaneously want my eight minutes back (you've been warned). SLYT.
