If you've ever wanted a dark retelling of Where The Wild Things Are, we have the music video for you.
On Thursday, Fall Out Boy dropped the first music video from their upcoming seventh album, Mania (out September 15). The vid is for their ominous new song, Young And Menace, and it tackles themes of domestic violence — with a rather odd inspiration.
According to Pete Wentz, this visual project was inspired by the movie Elf — which were having a hard time believing since we can't imagine Will Ferrell playing an abusive unicorn-llama.
Regardless, the video is certainly a bizarre one to watch… and we think that's the whole point. We mean, why else would the group sample Britney Spears' Oops! … I Did It Again in the chorus of such a dark and twisted song if they weren't trying to make something abstract??
Be sure to ch-ch-check out the video for yourself (above)!
It's been announced that a version of the show is returning to the network and will be tentatively titled MTV Live. The show will debut on June 12.
MTV president Chris McCarthy said:
"That ability to be live, in culture — not responding to it but driving it — is where we belong."
The new show will be set in the same TRL Times Square studio, which is about twice as big now, and will feature both music and other elements. Sounds exciting! We hope TRL staples Britney Spears and the Backstreet Boys make appearances!
When the show launched in 1998, it basically just featured Carson Daly counting down the most popular videos of the day, but it quickly exploded into an opportunity for celebs to promote themselves and fans to meet them. Peeps like Diddy, *NSYNC, and Jennifer Lopez made regular appearances and performed as well. It was the best of times!
In honor of this new installment, let's take a look back at some of the most memorable moments from the show's ten-year run (below)!
At least ONE airline is getting some good PR! Sorry not sorry, United!
This week, one Twitter user decided to have a little fun with Southwest Airlines' customer service — and the company basically said, "you TRIED."
So here's what went down.
The 19-year-old made up a fake complaint about a rude flight attendant via direct message — only to later reveal when pressed for details by the extremely-nice rep, Linnea, that the employee in question was Britney Spears.
So what does exec producer Selena Gomez think of all this controversy? It's pretty much what she was going for. She told the AP:
"We stayed very true to the book and that's initially what Jay Asher created, was a beautifully tragic, complicated yet suspenseful story, and I think that's what we wanted to do. We wanted to do it justice and, yeah, that's going to come no matter what. It's not an easy subject to talk about, but I'm very fortunate with how it's doing. I'm overwhelmed. I'm very proud of it."
Whatever your reaction to the show, it is getting a lot more people to talk about the problem of teen suicide.
